What Is Naruto And Why Is It So Popular?

May 23, 2008
Naruto is a Japanese anime and manga, created by Kishimoto. As of now there have been 399 Manga chapters, 220 anime episodes, and 58 naruto shippuden episodes released, making it a very popular series. People tend to create a lot of naruto wallpapers as a tribute to this great series.

Naruto wallpapers are a branch from anime wallpapers, a lot of other popular series have lots of wallpapers for them, such as bleach, one piece, death note and claymore. People usually use photoshop cs to create wallpapers and brush over them with photoshop abstract brushes, and such, you can find a lot of them at big sites like deviantart.

The anime and manga, naruto is about a hyperactive ninja called Naruto Uzumaki. He lives in Konoha (also known as the village hidden in the leaves). At the start of the series, everyone hated Naruto and he was always alone, due to the fact he has the Kyuubi inside him (Nine tailed fox) he was always looked down upon by the people in his village. It is because of this that Naruto can relate to many characters that have also faced the same cruelty.

One instance of this is when a ninja from the sand village, Gaara, had the Shukaku (sand demon) implanted inside him. All the people in his village were afraid of him and did not want to go near him as they were scared he would kill them. Gaara felt so alone, like he was an outsider in the world. Because of the Shukaku inside him, he could not sleep and he became so unstable that he went around killing people just to find a purpose in life.

But then along came Naruto, when Gaara and Naruto's paths crossed in their battle after the Chunin exam, it was then that Gaara had discovered that Naruto was just like him and how he managed to overcome his loneliness. It was through the love of his new found friends. Gaara and Naruto would later on turn out to be friends.

Another popular anime is bleach. Bleach is about a young, 15 year old, orange haired boy named Ichigo Kurosaki. He is no ordinary boy though because he can see spirits. One day he sees a soul reaper named Rukia Kuchiki and she is surprised that he can see her. Ichigo's family is under attack by Hollows (spirit monsters) and Rukia has come to save them. While she is trying to, she gets a serious wound and as an attempt to save their lives, she transfers her powers to Ichigo. It is from then on out, that Ichigo's life would never be the same.

Having soul reaper powers, Ichigo was now a substitute soul reaper. He fought of the Hollow with amazing strength that Rukia would have never believed he would have if she hadn't seen it with her own eyes. The story continues with Rukia being forced to back to where she came from (soul society) and having to face execution, because giving up your powers is against the rules. Ichigo finds out about this and goes to Soul Society to rescue her.
