ok Naruto iz about, this kid (naruto)that has a fox demon sealed in side of him (his source of red chakra) however many years ago one of the Hokage's sealed that fox demon (that was about to destroy the leaf village) in him. Naruto is hated (in a feared way) thorugh out the village and he doesent know why, the only reason he doesent know is because its a village law. he is not suposed to know that their is a huge, evil, bloodthirsty, balck hearted, nine-tailed fox demon in him. Well in the first ep he finds out, blah blah blah, he failed the Genin *first rank of ninja* exam, this big, not very important thing happens, he passes the exam and is put in a team. Team#7 with himself, Sasuke and Sakura. And the piont of the show is that he wants to become the greatest hokage ever and eat ramen while doing so.
But seriously, this is one of my top favorite animes. Thier fighting is increadible and the bad guys are so kool! (Orochimaru and Gaara, my favorites) of and there are lyke other stories in it too! Like Sasuke and Itachi!

Here's the easiest way to sum up Naruto:
The Japanese anime answer to Harry Potter.
"Struggle is optional. Pain is inevitable."
"This is my life. I have battled and lost, struggled and won. I have had victory and defeat, and defeat in victory. I will never be overmatched or unprepared. This is who I am and who I will always be…I am Chris Benoit!" - "The Crippler" Chris Benoit

What does Naruto have to do with Harry Potter? I see no relation whatsoever.
And Naruto's a very good anime. Okay, so it's way too drawn out and it takes five episodes for a fight to end, BUT Naruto has some very interesting plot themes - a demon sealed within a boy who now has to endure unbearable loneliness due to his fate and I dare not say anymore in order to not ruin it for anyone. And Naruto, the main character, is down right charismatic. Or maybe I'm just easily amused...
Anyway, enjoy Naruto and I hope Viz doesn't mess it up too much. I saw the Cartoon Network promo and was bothered by the unnecessary emphasis on Naruto being the class clown and learning ninjutsu at school... They're at school for only the first ep. And no violence?!! How can there be Naruto without violence!!! Oh poor Naruto...
I've decided to officially support the American Dub!! Go Ed!!! Power to the short people!!!!
