Japanese Manga - Naruto

I spent another late night watching Naruto again and woke up like a Zombie in the morning. I decided to write about this Amine which I'm so hooked on to over the years.
(NARUTO - ナルト -, Naruto) is a manga series written and illustrated by manga artist Masashi Kishimoto. The main character, Naruto Uzumaki, is a loud, hyperactive, predictable adolescent ninja who constantly searches for recognition, as well as to become Hokage, acknowledged as the leader and strongest of all ninja in the village.

There are many villages where their Ninjas were trained in skills unique to their tribes. Its hard to describe the story in full as its a series with complicating storyline. It was always a thrill to see their fightings that are full of excitement and beyond your imagination.

Nearly 250 episodes of this 1/2hr Anime was aired on TV Tokyo every Thursday at Prime Hours. It was also shown in countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, UK and NZ.
The manga has recently won a Quill Award for best graphic novel in North America. In TV Asahi's latest top 100 Anime Ranking, Naruto ranked 17th on the list.

As for me, I watch from Youtube weekly. If you want to watch the 1st episode, just key in Naruto 1, you will be able to see the anime.

Warning: Be careful. You can be hooked if you start watching a few episodes. I'd ignore this warning from my friend and today, I have to wait patiently for the next airing every week.
