Time To Watch: Naruto (Episodes 12-26 (Season One Finished))

Just shy of two weeks ago, I did a summary post of my thoughts and feelings of Naruto as a first time sitting down to just watch it all. I am pleased to say that in less than a month, I’ve finished one season – Yeah, yeah, I know, some of you are laughing at that child’s play, I struggle to binge watch. Anyway, now that I’ve completed season 1, here are my thoughts of the series so far.

Time To Watch: Naruto (Episodes 1-11)

Just over a week ago, I mentioned that I had never sat down and watched Naruto the whole way through. It’s strange to call myself an anime fan without actually having watched much of the orange ninja, so I thought it’d be kind of fun to watch it all, share my thoughts on the show and get your thoughts in response. I have to thank the people who spoke to me after that article, as ultimately I learned a lot more about the show than I expected. Also, thanks to those of you who offered encouragement for my sanity, which may be just as important. Here are my thoughts of the first 11 episodes. As the series is so old, these articles may have some spoilers.

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.

Top 10 – Series That Went On To Long

GeekOut Top 10s

A series that goes on too long can be a terrible thing; from an unnecessary deviation from the plot, through to repetition of the show. What may have had a promising start, ultimately, is turning into a slog, rather than an enjoyable show to continue watching. Naturally, a series isn’t even limited to film and TV, but rather all mediums.

You are all a strange bunch, as you all picked this Top 10 after last week’s Series That Ended Too Soon. So, from getting soppy at last week’s list, to us going “Oh god, why is/was that going on so long”, this week’s Top 10 Series That Went On Too Long is all thanks to you. Thanks, folks. Let’s begin the list!

Top 10 Half Breeds

GeekOut Top 10s

When we came up with Half Breeds to put on the list, we didn’t expect it to be a quick and easy one – So we decided we would do something a little bit different. When this one came up as our second most voted from two weeks ago, we knew we could have an actual physical discussion with some fellow geeks. We were at Kitacon this past week; which was a perfect way to get some of our fellow geeks to get their voices heard.

Stay tuned to the GeekOut YouTube channel, as next week you’ll get a glimpse of our ridiculous behind the scenes process in the first and possibly last recorded Top 10. It was great fun, we had some great discussion and we feel we have a nicely rounded list. Be sure to subscribe, because we’d love to share some of the fun we have in creating our lists with you. In the mean time, here’s the product of our efforts, in the Top 10 half-breeds! (more…)


Top 10 Rivalries

Top10 Banner

Media is often at its best when the characters have something to fight for; be it pride, be it the hand of the one they love, or be it for a bowl of delicious food – You name it, these guys are fighting for it. But they don’t fight just because they’re vicious enemies, or even because they hate one another. Instead, we’re focusing on the rivalry, the challenge that one another can bring one another, even if they’re fighting for the same cause.

So in this week’s Top 10, we’re focusing on compiling a list of our personal rivalries – These characters may fight one another, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they dislike one another! Now, it’s time to point dramatically at one another, shout “YOU!” and shoulder tackle, full steam ahead, into our list. (more…)


Top 10 – One-Eyed Characters

Top10 Banner

I think we all need to gain a little perspective here, maybe try and see things from both sides. Having lost an eye doesn’t mean you can’t be an effective team member, nor does being born with only one mean that you absolutely have to be the villain, or rather that you can’t be the best damn baddie you can be. You’re more than just your disfigurement, you have depth… of character.

Let us celebrate the differently eyed, those with singular focus and vision to-

Ah. Sorry, Top 10 one eyed characters. Let’s get on with it shall we.
