Skipping naruto fillers is my ninja way
Follows the standard shounen formula. Overall, it’s a fun, and surprisingly emotional watch. Be warned, it’s plagued by filler episodes.
This was my first anime that I watched and got me into the anime. Objectively, this isn’t 10/10, but it holds a special place in my heart
A fox boy gets ninja powers and somehow survives past ten episodes
Promising start, ruined by the writer’s ineptitude.
Amazing. Likeable characters, a story with heart and great animation. The music is also fantastic.
