Plot: Orphan Naruto Uzumaki is feared in his village because of the beast sealed inside him. He's sick of being ignored and out for recognition -- and he's aiming for the top. Naruto's goal? To become the Hokage -- the most skilled ninja in the village! To that end, he trains relentlessly, constantly improving alongside his teammates, Sakura and Sasuke. (A-)

Characters: Explored characters have lots of depth (A)

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: Original Japanese-- A / Dub-- B- (includes Shippuuden)

Music: original -- B / Shippuuden -- A

Objectionable Content: Blood, suggestive themes, fanservice, profanity

Other: I have a love/hate relationship with this series. I like the characters, but I hate the way the story is handled at times, how certain characters are ignored XP (that means Hinata), and how they always DRAG IT OUT in the anime. Nowadays, I watch this on and off.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5
