Naruto Uzumaki is the protagonist of Naruto manga/anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is a young ninja who dreams of becoming Hokage – the leader of his village – despite being shunned by most people for having a powerful demon sealed inside him.
I started watching Naruto when I was in high school because my friends recommended it to me. At first I thought it was just another typical shonen anime with lots of fights and comedy but soon I realized there was much more depth and emotion behind it.
In this post I will share with you why Naruto Uzumaki became one of my favorite anime characters ever.
One of the things that I love about Naruto is his personality. He is cheerful optimistic energetic loyal brave determined stubborn naive kind compassionate generous forgiving honest humble respectful courageous adventurous curious humorous friendly outgoing confident ambitious hopeful resilient persistent hardworking passionate enthusiastic inspirational charismatic heroic selfless heroic selfless
He has so many positive traits that make him admirable but he also has flaws that make him human.
He can be impulsive reckless loud rude childish immature arrogant ignorant impatient hot-headed clumsy careless insensitive annoying gullible foolish stubborn naive kind compassionate generous forgiving honest humble respectful courageous adventurous curious humorous friendly outgoing confident ambitious hopeful resilient persistent hardworking passionate enthusiastic inspirational charismatic heroic selfless
He makes mistakes he learns from them he grows from them he never gives up he never loses hope he never stops trying he never stops smiling he never stops dreaming
He is not perfect but he is real
Another thing that I love about Naruto is his story. He has one of the most tragic yet inspiring backgrounds in anime history.
He was born on October 10th during an attack by Kurama – a nine-tailed fox demon – on Konoha – his village.
His father Minato Namikaze – who was Hokage at that time – sacrificed his life along with his mother Kushina Uzumaki – who was Kurama’s previous host – to seal half of Kurama’s chakra inside Naruto using a forbidden jutsu called Shiki Fujin.
This made Naruto both Kurama’s new host – called Jinchuriki – and Minato’s son – called Konoha’s Yellow Flash.
However instead of being treated as a hero or royalty he was treated as an outcast or monster by most people in Konoha who feared hated blamed resented despised ignored isolated neglected abused discriminated ostracized shunned rejected bullied harassed tormented ridiculed mocked scorn
