I’m a 25 year old guy that just recently stumbled upon Naruto. About a year ago I was working out and pain’s theme randomly came on. After weeks of listening to it (thinking it was an absolute banger) I decided to give the show a try.
Long story short.. I absolutely loved it. While I’m not done yet (just started the kazekage rescue arc) I already know everything that happens.
Anyway I was thinking about everything I’ve watched up until this point and was just blown away at kishimoto’s ability to display deep philosophical themes in all of his arcs and characters.
So my question is… what does Naruto mean to you? How has the show effected you? And why has it made such a deep impact that even now people actively participate in the community? Trying to figure out the hidden lore we don’t have info on and all that.
Absolutely would love to hear what you guys have to say. I know the Naruto community gets a lot of flack and everyone always argues about power scaling and character battles and all that, but I genuinely believe, as a new comer that this is one of the best tight knit communities I’ve ever been apart of.
