A Good Buy for Naruto Fans on a Budget
on March 22, 2010
I've been a Naruto fan for a long time, and I've always wanted to support it and buy the official dvds. The thing is, I'm not rich. To pay $25-30 for about 4-6 episodes on a disc for a series that has 200+ episodes, why, I would go bankrupt. Then Viz decided to release these wonderful box sets. 25 episodes for about $30, that's something that I could work with. So I bought it and I was not disappointed.
The Season One, Vol. 1 box set contains the first 25 episodes of the series(both in English and Japanese with subtitles). It contains three story arcs:
The first story arc is the introduction of Naruto and the other main characters like Sasuke, Kakashi and Sakura.
The second arc is the "Land of Waves" arc with Zabuza and Haku, which in my opinion is an excellent start to the series.
And the third arc is of the first part of the Chunin Exams: The Written Exam.
The special features aren't anything special. Various previews for other stuff, Production art, and a Sketchboard to Episode feature for a couple of the episodes. The "Sneak Peek" at Naruto: Shippuden is just the opening to the series.
All in all, if you're looking to buy official Naruto dvds for cheap, this is the best option. I highly recommend it if you're a fan and you don't already have the dvds.
