I personaly find this series awesome. its a great action series for a lot of age groups. some of the adult reveiws are much too harsh on this show, because they do not understand it at all. this show has morals and real feelings, and the little blood that the characters show when they get hurt is nothing compared to the 'childrens show' Billy and Mandy; this show has so many disqusting things like boogers and slime, would you rather have your kids withching that or a show with actual reason and moral like Naruto? Yes, this show does have refrences to many things which are innapropriate, but they for they most part are very censored out. they never curse in the english version of the show, which obviously is NOT the origional version. the origional is japanese and IS made for an older (teenager-ish) age group. there really isnt anything in this show so obvious that a child of 8 who loves watching it can pick up on. yes, as an adult reveiwer said, two of the main characters, Sasuke and Naruto acctualy do "kiss" in one of the episodes. but the thing this adult revewer did not specify upon was that it was ACCIDENTAL(as in they were bumped into each other). it was to throw some humor into the show, and create a rivaly between the two ninja that would lead to greater goals and true friendship. and when an 8-year-old watches this scene they will think it was funny more than anything else, can you expect an 8 year old to really even know what homosexual is? this adult revewer obviousley knows nothing about their child and nothing about the show she tries to reveiw upon. this show is about a boy trying to achieve his dreams and striving to be their best. i think, however, sometime in the far future the show will be moved to a later timeslot, as it gets more intense later on. but for now, at least, and probably the next year, everyone 8+ should be able to watch this show without any nescisary parental intervention. I approve this shoiw greatly, and reccomend it.
