Naruto Shippuden is recommended for all ages

If you're at home just munching on some snacks and can only watch a bunch of random TY commercials then let me introduce you to an anime that you will never forget, Naruto Shippuden Watching this Anime will keep your eyes glued to the screen, there will never be a day that you will take those eyes off the TV. The transitions and effects may look fresh from the naked eye. But oh no! There's more, if you put the transitions and effects in slow motion then you will soon realize that the Animator uses only 2 to 3 movements to make the animations pop up. These Animators are really smart and creative, it'll probably blow your mind. Next up is the Soundtrack, so if you're still that lazy bum that can only look at the animations of Naruto Shippuden. Let me introduce the second most important, soundtrack is important because without the soundtrack the Anime would not be too exciting. The soundtrack is available on YouTube and Spotify for you to listen to, feel free to enjoy the festive music! Last but not least ladies and gentlemen, the grand finale… The story plot! The story of Naruto Shippuden is a fantasy world of ninjas that can release elemental attacks called Justus. The complex story might be hard to understand if you just try to memorize all episodes over 100, just keep watching and you will soon know the story easily. Now that you have enjoyed a good anime, now you will never need to worry about getting bored!

Very awesome!

This anime is really cool and great for 10+. My 13 and 16 year old love this show. There is no sexual content or talk except for one scene in 1 episode, when Naruto performs his sexy jutsu but mind you, he only does this once and eventually learns his lesson and becomes mature and never does this again. There are fight scenes as well, that's why I gave this a 10+ because it may scare younger kids, but if you do have a kid below 10+ who isn't scared of that stuff, I'd 100% let them watch it!

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
