Stellar Series at an Amazing Price! A Naruto Fan 4 Life!,
This review is from: Naruto Uncut Box Set: Season One, Vol. 1 (DVD)
I've always been a fan of Naruto. I like the drawing style and character design very much. It's unique and has a style all its own. Very much like Dragonball Z. However, I've actually never seen a single episode. I rarely get to watch TV anymore and whenever I pass the DVD aisle at my local video store, I always see Naruto individual DVDs and box sets on sale. I always have the insatiable urge that entices me to want to spend and splurge money on Naruto DVDs, but I never do. The individual EDITED discs are at twenty dollars a pop for a few episodes and the UNCUT box sets that only contain a few episodes can range up to sixty bucks. It just never seemed worth it to be at that price. I just felt like Viz Video was milking this money making machine to death with the double, or triple dipping as I like to call it. I knew with time that the complete box sets would be just around the corner. Good things do come to those who wait.
Low and behold, the Naruto season one volume one comes out and at such a great price (For under thirty bucks) and I am a full blown Naruto fan for life now. When I popped in disc one I thought I would dislike the show because it starts off with Naruto being very immature, running around, acting up, and laughing like a fool, and the voice actor wasn't doing much for me. I have a strange feeling he is voiced by a woman for some reason. But about fifteen minutes into the show for episode one, things started to unravel and the story finally kicked in. The pace of the show changes dramatically from light heart students at a ninja academy who joke around to a serious story developing and waiting in the wings.
This is a must have for any fan of art, comics, cartoons, and anime. You don't have to be a fan of anime to enjoy this show, but I know you will love it. The box set comes in this plastic case with six discs inside and I am so happy it's not a cardboard paper case with thin plastic sleeves - Hundred and hundreds of minutes of sheer anime entertainment. I much prefer this over the old packaging. Interesting story line and overall it's a lush intricate story about a boy who is experiencing social displacement and finding his own place in the world of life.

The English language is worse than the original Japanese -- but that goes without saying, doesn't it? The Japanese Naruto has a much more appropriate voice for his age. But the voice talent for the English dubs is terrible... not just Naruto, but all of them.

I like the voice acting, but i know the voice actor for Naruto is a girl. Other than that i think its great!

You are so right I just got this myself any one buying this will not be disappointed. plus the plastic case opens like a book and is better then the card board and way easier to open. I have
a Naruto set in a cardboard box and it's a pain when you open it unfolds into 1 long annoying strip is how I'll describe it

I totally agree. These new plastic cases are way better. I am so sick of the cardboard boxes and individual plastic sleeves. Sure its pretty to look at, but thats about it.

If you haven't even seen a single episode of this series you probably shouldn't review it. Although this is one of my favorite anime series and the box sets that have been released for it are a great deal, (which is a first for the company who licenses it..) I find it odd for someone to claim to like it and rate it five stars who hasn't even seen it..
