Time To Watch: Naruto
Right, hold on, don’t jump the gun on this article today folks. Have you ever enjoyed something, say video games or even anime, where a large section of fans talk about a particular series? Perhaps you’re a gamer who has never played a Call of Duty, or a Final Fantasy? What if you’re a comic fan who has never read X-Men? I’m a guy who really enjoys anime, however I’ve never really given Naruto a proper try. There’s also no reason for it, as I thoroughly enjoyed the first couple of episodes that I did see way back when. So, I’m about to start a new venture – To watch all of Naruto… We’ll talk about Boruto another time.
In all honesty, I’ve seen about 5 episodes of Naruto and I found it really good fun. So it’s weird to me that I’ve still not really watched it all. Perhaps it’s because of how long the series went on for? Perhaps it’s because there are some people who are negative about it? Or perhaps it’s because I’m pretty bad at watching or playing things that are extremely popular. Well, whatever the reason, I’ve never given the series a proper try and that needs to come to an end.
As such, I’m going to start doing a monthly article, where I chat about what episode I’m up to, what I’ve thought about the journey through Naruto to that point and then we’ll see how much further we go. I’m excited to get started, however I’m not going to lie, there’s a lot of content to get through. Fortunately for me, I do have access to Crunchyroll where apparently every damn episode is available… So let’s have a quick look at how many episodes there are…
Ah bloody hell.
220 episodes to get through and considering I struggle to watch more than an episode of a good series at a time, this is going to be interesting. Still, I’m going to watch it from start to finish. This is it. Goodbye everyone…
