Twelve years before the start of the series, the Nine-Tails raided Konohagakure and struck chaos in much of the village of naruto, and killing many of his beloved. The sultan of the rural community, the Fourth Hokage gave his life to protect the Nine-Tails into a newborn, Naruto Uzumaki was orphaned by the attack, devastated and broken, Naruto was saved by the villagers, who out of fear and anger, viewed him as the Nine-Tails itself. Though the Third Hokage forbades talking about anything related to the Nine-Tails. The children, taking their cues from their parents, innate the same hostility towards Naruto. In his thirst to be approved, Naruto vowed he would one day become the greatest Hokage the village had ever seen. Naruto inspires you to think about what you stand for in life – This is shown in every ninja having their “way of the ninja”, which empowers them to accomplish their goal in life. Naruto’s extremely simple way of the ninja is to “Never go back on [his] word” and to “Never give up. Coolest thing is that, Everyone has a character that can relate to! This might be debatable, but more often than not, people can associate themselves with one character at the least. Apart from Naruto, Sasuke and the other host of popular characters, you might even find an exact replica of who you are in a character. Say, Guy Sensei & Rock Lee who are an inspiration to every hard-working person who think they don’t have ‘Natural Talent’. Or even Kakashi, who is perfect in all respects but drags along this huge bag of past regret and blames himself for the mishap of his team? The anime shows you how he finally resolves to treasure his memories (those that are special to him!) and actively help out to protect/cherish his comrades. Shikamaru, Gaara, Madara Uchiha, Hashirama, Sarutobi-Danzo, Minato, Kakashi, Obito, Sakura, Hinata, Neji!! So many . Its surprising for an anime to have such Character depth and Character development that some of the very famous Dramas on Television would pale in comparison to Naruto/ Naruto Shippuuden. Naruto is truly one of the Best Anime Series on television.
