Sometimes a little slow-moving, Naruto is quickly becoming an anime essential. Watching it uncut and in Japanese is completely legitimate. Watch it, and start at this vital beginning to an epic adventure you wont forget--
Stargate SG-1 (and yes I've seen all the spinoffs too through Stargate Universe and rank SG-1 as the best) used to be my favorite show and now Naruto is. SG-1 ranks second now. I just empathize with the kind of goal Naruto is working for.
