One of the most-celebrated animated shows aired, Naruto, has been attracting us for more than a decade. With over 250 million copies sold, Naruto is the most popular manga series in history. This massive show with an incredible 240 watch hours started unbelievably from relatively humble beginnings, a twenty-page story about Naruto being born from a great white snake.
The Tale Of Naruto
Just twelve years before the start of the series, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox massacred the land of Konoha. If there had been no Kohage, all would have turned to dust and ashes. That day marked the rise of Kohona as the fourth Kohage sealed the demon into a newborn, Naruto. Orphaned by the attack, the newborn was shunned by the villagers out of fear. Mocked by his people for the possession of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, our cheery and loud protagonist, Naruto Uzukami, struggles to overcome the social stigma as a young ninja and paves up his way to recognition, the chair of Hokage, the strongest ninja and the leader of Hidden Leaf Village.
Why is Naruto so popular?
The well-portrayed character development, well-executed fight sequences, and strong plotlines make it by far the most popular manga series in history, with over 250 million copies sold worldwide. See, there’s nothing to complain about.
Is it worth it?
Indeed, a fan base of 250 million isn’t something to overlook. Questioning Naruto’s worth might put you in trouble. Trust me, and you won’t be able to bear the fury of millions.
Plotline Of Naruto
The story is split into two parts; Naruto’s pre-teen years dwell in the first part of the manga (Naruto Original), sparing his adolescent life for the second part (Naruto Shippuden). With 40% of the series having filler content, it is not advisable to skip those episodes as you’ll lose much on the story.
Can’t forget Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, a sequel to the Naruto. Last but not least, there is still a long list of 11 Naruto movies left unattended.
How Many Episodes In Naruto Are There All Together – 720 Episodes In Total
The Naruto original holds up 220 episodes, but skipping the fillers isn’t the best choice, for it will leave huge gaps in the lore told by the show. You’ll also have to check out all episodes of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
- Episodes In Naruto Original
Total of 220 episodes in 5 seasons
- Episodes In Naruto Shippuden
Total of 500 episodes in 21 seasons
How Long will It take?
It takes to watch the whole series around 14,400 minutes or 240 hours or 10 days straight. The Naruto movies add another 22 hours to the clock.
But for folks like me who hate the slow-talking of English dub, find the mindless staring of two ninjas boring, and love to hit the 1.5× speed button, fate’s been kind to you. You’ll need 9,600 minutes or 160 hours or Six days and 16 hours straight.
Watching the Naruto All Together in a fortnight!!!
14,400 minutes of Naruto!!! That too within 14 days!!! Are you sane!!!
Even if you’re fond of sore eyes and happy about draining all the dedication and patience out of yourself, never attempt to binge-watch Naruto in a single setting unless you don’t want to end up like these dudes. You’ll end up even worse.
The right way to do it
Though the best course would be 2 episodes for a day, that will take an eternity to conclude Naruto. That leaves us with a moderately better proposal, feasting your eyes on 8 episodes daily for 3 months.
