, aimed mainly at kids. It focuses on the character Naruto Uzumaki
, and what he goes through while trying to become Hokage
(leader/top ninja) of Konoha
(Village Hidden in the Leaves/Leaf Village).
In America, the anime (although strangely very popular) is lacking in quality compared to the undubbed and uncut Japanese version. The manga
is very popular as well, and if you only have access to the American version of the anime but also are able to get your hands on the manga, I suggest that you read the manga versus watching the anime.
Fans of Naruto (sometimes known as Narutards
, which can be used both positively and negatively) will often cosplay
as the characters at anime conventions.
