Japanese manga series Naruto is the story of Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja looking for fame and accomplishment in his village. Today, it is among teh best-selling manga series, and has won praise for its blend of fighting and comic relief, and well develo character personalities. The box sets are a great way to get Season 1's episodes for cheap, and offer great value for money. This includes a version dubbed in English, as well as the original version in Japanese (featuring English subtitles).
Because it is in the uncut version, there is more violence and a bit of swearing, as well as special features. The 27 episode set (26-52) starts you off with a recap, and contains two 2 story arcs: that of the Chunin Exam's second part (Forest of Death) and the Preliminary Rounds, which see Naruto fend off another ninja. the volume ends with the debut of Jiraiya, who plays godfather to Naruto. Clearly, there is going to be ample time to develop characters and plots, making it an essential watch. For first time watchers, it is a great way to enter the Naruto manga universe. Naruto seems like a childish character, but quickly these weaknesses become compelling vulnerabilities.
