As part of the 20th anniversary of Naruto, let’s look back and remember the characters that we feel in love with. Naruto has a plethora of powerful and beautiful women that can kick butt and stand for us. Just a heads up, there might be spoilers! So let’s get started.

10. Kushina

Even though she wasn’t present in Naruto’s childhood, she still loved him and wishes she could be part of his life. I find her really interesting because before Naruto had the Nine Tails, she was the previous host and she was unique. Even after losing Nine Tails Fox, she used last of her strength to help her husband to seal the beast in their own son, even it means dying and not being able to see Naruto grow. A mother’s love is all Naruto needed to help maintain control over the tailed beast.

9. Konan

Another tough woman in the series but led to darkness. Konan grow up in a time of war along with Nagato and Yahiko. She was trained by Jiraiya and together, she with her friends did their best to bring peace to the lad. But after tragedy, She and Pain (an alias made by Nagato) formed the Akatsuki and seeks to create peace in their own hands. Her paper justu is pretty impressive. I also like how Naruto convinced her to be good and she went on as a changed ninja. However, she later gets killed by Tobi after she tried to protect her fallen friends.

8. Shizune

Even though she not strong as Lady Tsunade, she is very dependable. Shizune is a skilled ninja who knows about medication and taking on dangerous missions. Shizune is a great partner to not only supporting Tsunade, but also to other Hokages like former 6th Kakashi and now current Naruto.

7. Sarada

Image result for sarada uchiha

Coming from Sasuke and Sakura, Sarada has the some impressive skills from her parents. She has the Sharingan like her father and she has the brute strength as Sakura. Sarada is the leader of Team 7 who is mentored by Konohamaru and he team is Boruto and Mizuki. Sarada does her best to keep the team maintain (mostly keep Boruto in control). Her intellectual skills is all thanks to her parents.

6. Tenten

A ninja is already to fight and is always equipped with the best weapons. Tenten is one of Naruto’s friends and her skills involves with using ninja tools for combat. With her skills in combat, Tenten has access to many weapons that she can use to fight and carry on duties.

5. Temari

Despite coming from the Hidden Sand Village, Temari makes a beautiful wife for Shikamaru in the Hidden Leaf Village. Before settling down for a family, Temari is the sister of Gaara and Kankuro from the Sand Village. Her skills involves with using a giant fan in which she can use to blow her enemies away and even cause wind blade jutus. Don’t her looks intimate you, she is a caring mother and wife.

4. Ino

Image result for ino

To be honest, I didn’t care about her much in the classic Naruto, but my opinion later changed in Shippuden. Ino is a rival and friend to Sakura and these two knew each other in childhood. Ino can use mind transfer jutsu in which she can leave her body behind and take over another person. Ino has help Naruto fight some of the Akatsuki such as the immortal Akatsuki’s like Hidan and Kakazu.

3. Tsunade

Image result for tsunade

She may look like a young hot babe, she is actually old enough to be a grandma. More or less, she is probably the same age as Jiraiya. Tsunade is a tough woman who can use incredible chakra to heal people with her skills and her summoning jutsu that allows her to summon slugs. What makes Tsunade incredible is that she comes from the same bloodline as the first Hokage and even though she doesn’t have his wood jutsu, she can fight with brute force and lead the village. She’s a woman you don’t want to mess with especially if you get in the way of her gambling.

2. Sakura

Kind of like Ino, I didn’t care about her in the classic Naruto. In the classic Naruto, despite her being the smartest ninja, she didn’t do a lot of fighting compared to Naruto and Sasuke. In Shippuden, I like her a bit more when she got strong and was helping Naruto fight the Akatsuki. She got better when they needed help fighting Madara and then Kaguya. In Boruto. she is caring mother of Sarada and will fight anyone who hurts her family. I also like her too because she and I have the same birthday.

1. Hinata

Image result for Hinata

Naruto’s wife is number one! Hinata first starts off as a timid ninja who was scared to fight and too afraid to talk to Naruto, but after seeing Naruto conquer many challenges, she got inspired to follow him and get strong. I really love how she is willing to help Naruto even if it means risking her life. I actually wrote about her in a OWLS post. Hinata is grown so much when she met Naruto. She even stood up against the powerful enemy Pain in order to help Naruto. Despite the enemies she faces and her doubts, she will stand by Naruto.

That’s all for my top favorite characters. What is your favorite girl in Naruto? Comment down below.

Naruto 20th Anniversary post – Top 10 Male Naruto characters

Image result for naruto 20th

It’s been 20 years since the debut of Naruto has appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump manga. Who would have thought that a story about a young ninja kid named Naruto Uzamaki would be a hit sensation not only in Japan but all over the world. Naruto has evolved from the manga, to anime to video games and even movies and he is loved by many fans. Through thick and thin, Naruto is a series popular as Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon and it’s highly praised not only for the story, but it is praised for the characters, their development and real life themes such as war and over coming obstacles. Recently, the main character Naruto had his birthday on October 10th. I missed out doing something special on his day but I want to do something for his 20th Anniversary on the manga. I am going to be doing a special top 10 post on my favorite characters on the series. It’s actually going to be more than one post. This one is going to focus on my favorite male character in the series. On my next planned post, I want to do one focusing on the women and hopefully do another about villains. More than likely, I want to do male and female first before I consider doing more about Naruto top 10 posts. I got this idea from a friendly blogger named Mel from the blog website Marvelously Mismatched. She is a great friend of mine and I remember reading her posts about her favorite Naruto male characters. If you want to check out her blog, I will leave her blog and posts down below. Be sure to say hi. While you are at it, please donate to my blog through Ko-fi.

Anyway, here is my top 10 favorite male characters. (Spoilers coming up!)

10. Jugo

Image result for naruto jugo

Jugo is one of my favorite characters in the series. At first he appears like a gentle giant but when he gets angry, he becomes a monster. When Sasuke enlists him in his team, the rampaging Jugo agrees to serve Sasuke and the rest of Team Hebi. With his skills, Jugo can heal Sasuke wounds by using his curse mark and even use his mark to unleash monster strength.

9. Gaara

Image result for gaara

Almost like Naruto, Gaara is a character I feel sympathetic towards him. Just like Naruto, Gaara was outcasted by his own village because he had the one-tailed beast Shukaku. To make matters worse, his own father tried to kill his own son multiple times by sending his own men but failed in the process.Without love and care, Gaara became a heartless ninja. But after facing Naruto, Gaara later learned about friendship and he dies whatever it takes to take of his village.

8. Yamato

Image result for yamato naruto

He’s not Kakashi, but he is a cool sensei. Yamato first appeared as a substitute sensei to watch over Naruto, Sakura and newly introduced, Sai. What makes Yamato interesting is that he has an unique chakra which allows him to use wood style jutsu that can help suppress Naruto’s nine tails chakra. When he’s not watching over Naruto, he’s making houses and boats with his jutsu. Don’t ever make him mad because he gives off a creepy face.

7. Might Guy

Image result for might guy

He may look weird, but he is one of the strongest taijutsu shinobi in the Leaf Village. Might Guy is a ninja that ultizes taijutsu, jutsu that relies on physical combat and strength. Guy is a sensei who watches over his team which includes Rock Lee, Neji and Tenten. He may look weird with his haircut and green clothes, but he is actually strong ninja. I like how even though he only has taijutsu, he is still strong and he knows how fight and go beyond limits.

6. Kakashi Hatake

Image result for kakashi

This guy has some awesome skills. Kakashi is a real ninja who can toy with his opponents. When he had the Sharingan, Kakashi can imitate hand signs and perform jutsu and counter attack his opponent. Even with his mask on, Kakashi shows a lot of emotions. He cares about his students and he doesn’t hold back on his enemies. He went from being a student, anbu, sensei and even Hokage. Kakashi is a powerhouse ninja.

5. Obito Uchiha

Image result for obito uchiha

When life turns their back on you, you turn your back on the world. After dealing with tragedy, the innocent Obito Uchiha decides to seek vengeance in the world. After losing his childhood crush Rin, Obito wants to create a world where anything is possible and he do drastic measures. I like how he is powerful and manipulative in the series and tricking people that he was Madara Uchiha.

4. Shikamaru Nara

Image result for shikamaru

Don’t be fooled by his appearance. First started off in the show as a lazy student, Shikamaru is actually pretty smart. He plans out his moves and outsmarts his opponents. He also appears calm minded which helps him concentrate and not make the situation stressful. I also like his jutsu in which he can possess people with his Shadow Posession Jutsu.

3. Itachi Uchiha

Image result for itachi uchiha

We all hated this guy before but after learning about him, Itachi is one of the coolest characters in the series. Itachi first appears in the show as an antagonist but after learning about him and trying to prevent coup between his clan and the Leaf Village, he was willing to kill off his own clan and save his only little brother Sasuke. Itachi is an opponent you should never underestimate especially when facing someone who killed their entire clan.

2. Naruto Uzamaki

Image result for naruto

He’s the star of his own story and he shows us that with enough determination, dreams can come true. Naruto may have had a bad beginning without having parents and failing in school, Naruto shows us that never giving up pays off. Naruto is one tough kid who refuses to give up and when the going gets tough, he gets stronger.

1. Jiraiya

Image result for naruto jiraiya

Jiraiya is my number one favorite character. He may look like an old funny pervert, but he’s surprisingly a cool shinobi. When he’s not doing “research”, he is writing and training Naruto. As a Sanin, it’s his job to protect the Leaf Village from evil. Jiraiya is the master of the Rasengan and he knows how to summon powerful toads and even hold secrets about chakra control. I wish he was alive in the series so he can see Naruto become Hokage. I admire that he is a writer and I like his dedication to finding out how to find peace in the ninja world.

This is my top 10 favorite male characters in Naruto. What are yours?

[OWLS August Blog Tour] Naruto – Jiraiya’s Biographical Life Journey

Journey

We have all heard this saying in some shape or form: “Life is a journey.” We travel down a path in hope that we reach a goal or destination, but the travel in getting there isn’t always easy. Along the way, we encounter some personal struggles. It is in those moments where we must overcome an adversity to complete our journey or take a different route or path instead. In this month’s OWLS post, we will be discussing the personal journeys of pop culture creators, icons, and characters. We will explore the journeys that these characters went through, discuss the process and experiences they had on their journeys, what they discover about themselves, or share our own personal journeys.

*This blog tour post will have spoilers to the Naruto (classic/Shippuden) anime!

Naruto news: Naruto Legacy game and new Boruto anime!

Here is some juicy Naruto news!

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that the upcoming Naruto collection game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy game will be released on August 25th for PS4, Xbox One and Stream. The game will be available in physical in all Americas except for the Brazil version. The price of the set will be $79.99 with the steel case and art book. This will also have a special Boruto anime in which was premiered in Jump Special Anime Festa in Nov/Dec. The game set will have the following:

  • Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 1
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

If you don’t want this game set, Bandai Namco Entertainment will also release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy in which will include the first 3 games instead.

In the 32nd issue of the Japanese Shonen Jump magazine, the issue revealed that the anime Boruto: Naruto Next Generation will be entering a new arc based on the single volume one-shot Naruto the Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring. The arc will premier this month. If you don’t know what it is, read the synopsis from Viz Media, it involves Sarada and the truth about her parents:

Naruto was a young shinobi with an incorrigible knack for mischief. Then he channeled that energy into learning amazing ninja techniques and saving the world! Now Naruto has achieved his dream to become the greatest ninja in the village and his face sits atop the Hokage monument. But new troubles are bubbling up in the shinobi world…

With the world now safe and the ninja villages working together, Naruto’s work as Hokage seems pretty mundane. Giving his son, Boruto, enough attention is the toughest task he has. But then Sasuke uncovers a conspiracy that may involve surviving members of the Uchiha clan. And at the same time, Sarada is begins to have doubts about the truth of her origins.

Three Anime Characters Twitter Tag Explanation

After seeing Arria and Kat’s Twitter Tag post explanation, I decided to do my own explanation post. In the past, I actually got tagged more than once but I only going to focus on one since it is the only one that has anime characters. I was also tagged by Lynlynsays. You remembered this tagged picture, Describe yourself in 3 fictional characters,  Twitter users had to not only share 3 characters that represents themselves but they had tag 10 people. I won’t be tagging people but I will explain my chosen characters. This is not a top 3 post, these are characters that I randomly picked from my head. Here is my tweet and my explanations:

Shizuo Heiwajime from Durarara!!

Some may know this but I am very stubborn. Whenever I get provoked by something either minor things or something that is constantly bugging me, my expression on my face says “you better back off or you will get hurt”. I may not be able to toss cars or stop signs like Shizuo but I will admit, sometimes my anger does seem hurtful and I end up hurting the people I care. It’s not something to be proud about but just like Shizuo, I have this scary power inside me and if I can’t control it, I end causing damage. On positive note, we are also physically strong and I do help do heavy lifting in chores and we both have a young brother that we care about.

Shiro Fujimoto from Blue Exorcist

I come from a Christian family and we believe that in God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Just like Shiro, I try to follow God’s words and do what He tells me to do, which is to believe in Him and know of Jesus sacrifice for us and know that Satan will never win. I am not afraid to say I love God and I am not afraid to say that there is one way to get to Heaven, which is believing in Jesus. As long I have God, Satan is nothing to be scared about.

I will admit, I do sin and mess up. Whenever I see a cute anime girl in my shows, I get smitten and get a crush on one and stuck on her for a while until another comes around. Thank God it’s not an obsession but I always pretend I have a harem if anime girls based on the shows I see.

“Tobi” from Naruto Shippuden

I won’t spoil the true identity of this guy but I will just call him Tobi. First started off as a goof ball in the series, Tobi is a funny guy who tends to mess up and annoy people and serves a comedy relief in the villain organization the Akatsuki. Later on, his silliness is nothing more than a ruse and he is actually a dark and manipulative man with a goal for peace. He becomes one of the lasting members of the Akatsuki and tries to capture all the Tailed Beasts for power.

Just like Tobi, I tend to act funny with my friends and family. I am pretty awkward in groups which makes me a target for me being a joke and I sometimes I let them laugh and I laugh with them. Online, I act random and I say things that I just want to share. This explains why I like to do my TGIF posts because I like to share random memes.

However, whenever I am alone or something serious comes up in my life, I revert to a serious personality. I don’t try to take over the world but I do act serious if something is discussed with the world or topics in life. I don’t really like to talk about politics or any laws or social things like (gay rights or ethnicity issues) because I am afraid I will offend groups. In short, besides being funny and chill, I sometimes can be serious and I know when to stop having fun.

This concludes this explanation post!

Anime Jungle Experience

I am going to be quick on this post. Today was my unofficial, or unhappy birthday today and for this day, my family took me on a trip to Little Tokyo. They know that I love anime and manga and my fascination on Japanese culture. Little Tokyo was an exciting place to go. In a funny way, it was like being in actual Tokyo from Japan. My family and I went to the Anime Jungle, also known as the Entertainment Hobby Shop Jungle. I went to three stores and I bought something from each one. I got my first ever Pop! figure of Kirito from Sword Art Online, two manga books of Rosario Vampire Season 2, and a Tobi mask from Naruto Shippuden.

My actual birthday is on March 28th!
