A typical shounen fighting show yet one that's surprisingly really popular and it's not that hard to see why. It's rather addicting and fun for the first few episodes yet as the plot "thickens" it loses it's inital charm and bears it's true colors of being a long-running series that'll go on as long as they can milk it.
It's not that bad of a show but it's not that great of one either. There's alot of better shounen shows out there.
Naruto is an aspiring ninja with a troubled past. He just wants to be the next fucking Hokage. Yet no one believes and him because quite frankly he's annoying as hell. Sasuke serves the purpose as the your angsty bishie with a brother complex and Sakura seems to be there just for the sake of having a female. I followed the series for a while because in all honesty I thought Rock Lee was amazing. But once the manga came to a point where it said "END OF PART ONE!" I just stopped and gave up.
