🍥What is Naruto: Anime and Manga

Naruto is a good anime. Naruto is a good manga. Naruto is a good character. Naruto is a good series. Naruto is a good franchise. It is a series that has been on the air for over 15 years and still remains one of the best anime and manga series. Some of the most loved Naruto characters are as follows:

🦊Naruto Characters

Naruto is the protagonist of the series and used to be an orphan who was hated by everyone in his village because they thought he was the Nine-Tailed Fox who destroyed their homes, families and friends when he was still a baby with no control over himself or anything around him let alone any ability to understand what was going on around him at all times.

Kakashi is a jounin, which means he is one of the best ninja in his village. He has also been given a lot of responsibility as a teacher and leader. Kakashi has an interesting history: he was a child prodigy who reached the rank of jounin at the age of 13, but then turned away from the ninja life to pursue art. However, after seeing his father killed during an attack on his village, Kakashi returned to being a ninja and now uses his Sharingan eye to know his enemies’ attacks, as well as to predict them himself (making him very difficult to defeat). He also has something called Mangekyou Sharingan, which allows him to copy ninjutsu with a single glance, but has some serious side effects, such as blindness if used too much.

Sasuke is a ninja who was trained by his brother, Itachi. Sasuke has a great ability to use wind style and can fly with his Sharingan technique. He was also the son of the 4th Hokage, but betrayed Konoha and joined Akatsuki. In the past, Sasuke’s family took care of Naruto when he was younger and the two became close friends. They remain good friends today.

Orochimaru is a former ninja of Konohagakure. He was a student of the Third Hokage and one of the Sannin. He was originally a member of Team Jiraiya, along with Tsunade and Jiraiya. Orochimaru was born in the village of Kusagakure, where he lived as an outcast for possessing multiple kekkei genkai (the Sharingan and its evolved form, the Mangekyō Sharingan). His time at his village’s academy was filled with abuse from his peers, as they feared that one day his body would be twisted by his innate blood boundary(s) like him and he would in turn become something similar to Orochimaru himself; this caused him great anger and led him to believe that humanity could not peacefully coexist with each other unless there was a single person who controlled everything (a philosophy that would eventually lead to his undoing). After being deemed too dangerous to leave alive by the ANBU members, Orochimaru killed both of them before fleeing into the nearby forest, where he found an injured female snake about to die after being attacked by another animal; she had recently given birth, so Orochimaru took her eggs inside himself so they wouldn’t die as well (making himself immortal so these eggs wouldn’t die).

Minato Namikaze was the fourth Hokage of the Hidden Village among the Leaves and the father of Uzumaki Naruto, who became known as a hero throughout the world. He was also a jonin-level ninja with powerful abilities, such as his signature Rasengan and the Flying Thunder God Kunai. As Naruto’s father, Minato loved him very much, but he knew that it would be too dangerous for him to stay in Konoha at that time due to threats from other villages. So he asked Kushina Uzumaki to take care of his unborn son until he returned from battle.

Gaara is the jinchuuriki of Shukaku, a beast sealed inside him by his father. Gaara is orphaned soon after and is raised by his uncle, Yashamaru. When Yashamaru tells him that he was born with the Shukaku, Gaara realizes that he was never loved by anyone and runs away to live alone in a desert.

The Fourth Kazekage finds Gaara and takes him back to Sunagakure, where he lives with his siblings Temari and Kankuro. The Fourth decides to make Gaara the next Kazekage so he can protect his village from Akatsuki, but he dies before completing the process. He appoints Gaara’s brother Kankuro as temporary leader until Gaara completes his training, at which point they will fight each other for the leadership of Sunagakure; if Kankuro wins, he will become the fourth new leader, and if not, Temari will take over (this never happens).

Obito was a former comrade of Kakashi and Rin. He, like many other members of the Uchiha clan, wanted to become stronger. He wanted to prove himself and gain recognition. He was a student of the Third Hokage, who taught him how to use the Sharingan. Although he was an excellent student, he was not as skilled as Kakashi or Rin in taijutsu or ninjutsu; however, his use of genjutsu made up for this lack of skill and allowed him to reach higher levels than either of them could have reached on their own. He became part of Team Minato along with Kakashi Hatake and Rin Nohara when they were all chosen by Minato Namikaze for his new team as genin (novice ninja).
