You will love the degree of emotions in this show. There are so many heart-wrenching moments that it will make you really worry about the characters or even cry a river! There are so many reasons to love this vastly popular anime series! First of all, it has character development. Everyone in the series has their dark past which binds the viewer to the story. We can’t deny the fact that even antagonists in this show are likeable because they each have their own justified reasons. There are so many lovable, smart, and righteous characters! Another thing that makes Naruto so special is a deeply developed jutsu structure; each character is not simply overloaded with powers. They have their own unique fighting style. This complexity is one of the things that makes the series different from others.

Naruto revolves around the adventures of a boy with a living monster inside him. A long time ago, a powerful fox called Nine-Tails attacked one of the villages in the Shinobi Countries. The leader of the village sacrificed his life and sealed the monster inside his newborn son, Naruto. Years later, the boy struggles to find his place in this world. One day, the hyperactive Naruto becomes a ninja. He forms his own team and sets out on different missions requested by the villagers. Due to his temper, Naruto stumbles upon not only great friends but also some dangerous foes.
