Naruto (TV Series 2002–2007) – IMDb 7.9
Before Naruto I thought there could be nothing greater than or compared to Death Note. But this one has truly overcome my expectations. Naruto Uzumaki, is a loud, hyperactive, ninja who constantly searches for approval and recognition, as well as to become Hokage, who is acknowledged as the leader and strongest of all ninja in the village. Its storyline is pretty amazing as it starts when he was a boy. Naruto turns from an underdog to a protector of his village throughout his hard work and training. For being a jinchuuriki (host of a tailed beast) he is despised by all of his fellow villagers so he must work hard to prove himself an excellent ninja to get acknowledged by everyone. But his road to becoming a splendid nija is not so easy. There is a group of 11 people called the Akatsuki who are collecting all the bijuus (tailed beasts) to take control of the ninja world. So his fellow teachers and friends and ninjas from other villages must fight their way to keep the bijuus falling into Akatsuki’s hand.
This anime has it all: Romance, Actions, awesome fighting scenes, Plot twists, Climaxes, Heart touching scenes and so on. The characters are very much unique and awesome and it is really fun and entertaining to watch how the story goes on. But as the storyline is huge it takes some time to build up and the most bad and annoying part of this anime is the fillers. There are just too many filler that sometime it takes 30-40 episodes to get back on the main story again. But again with the fillers aside I can tell without any hesitation that it is one of the greatest anime which I can never get bored of and watch over and over again.
