I was board so I turned on the tv and naruto was on. It was the one where Sasuke leaves the village to join with Orochimaru. I was hooked ever since. My boyfirend at the time came over and saw me watching it and said. "Naruto. why are you watching that dumb show?" I told him to watch the rest of it with me and he was hooked.

So I strarted reading it and I was hooked I need more then I started watching it I also asked if I could have that manga.

I was bored and was going through channels on the tv, and saw Naruto on. At first, I thought it would be stupid, but after watching one episode, I loved it. It was the episode where Sakura cut her hair, and because that episode got me hooked on Naruto, it's my favorite episode.

I was waiting for Nick to show the last 10 episodes of Avatar. Some kid on my bus was screaming at
a teacher: DONT FORGET TO WATCH NARUTO!!!!!!!!!!!!. I had nothing to watch so.......

I'd heard that name mentioned on Avatar sites before so i decided to check it out.
The episodes that came on that night was The Cursed Warrior and The Tactitains Intent (fillers i now know) i didnt think i liked it that much then. (dont get me wrong, i likes the fillerS)
About a month later, A Cry on Deaf Ears came on followed each night by the rest of the Naruto vs. Sasuke episodes. After that i was hooked.

I started watching it when it started coming on in the afternoon on cn...it was January 4th, 2007 I believe. So I was in 6th grade. The first episode I saw was the one where Naruto tries to teach Konohamaru the Sexy Jutsu (the second episode). It kind of freaked me out, so I have no idea why I was so hooked on it. I kept it a secret from my family for a few months because I thought I would get in trouble for watching "innapropriate tv" (maybe that's why I liked it...it made me feel like a rebel :cool:). But I told my best friend about it and she didn't think it was cool at all -_-"

All my freinds were like that in the begining. They didn't even want me to say a single word when I was around them. But now I got a few of them hooked on it. It only took a couple years. XD

I read some of the manga back in 2006 and at first thought it was stupid, but a short time later I was stuck in Wal-Mart for a couple hours while my parents shopped, being completely bored, I sat down in the book section and started reading Naruto. I managed to read about fifteen books and thats when I realized I was hooked. Although Ive been hooked on the manga, I didn't start watching the anime until about six months ago.

I got one who likes it but not as much as me. Now I go to a different school and a bunch of people like it, but still, not as much as me. They like Fruit Basket and stuff like that...but I think shojo is crappy.

I saw the commercial for the Premeire oin Cartoon Network and I thought "It looks weird" because I remember that the commercial was really dark and so I missed it the night that it premeired so I asked my friend about it the next day and he told me about the part where that dude threw the giant Shuriken at Naruto and It Hit Iruka in the back swo I thought it soounded cool so fortunately,it came on the next day and I saw the Episode where he was Teaching Konohamaru the Sexy Jutsu and I got hooked because I was in 3rd Grade and it was col to see a naked lady on a channel for kids.

The first game I played was Clash of Ninja 1

You know, I tried really really hard to keep my first grade cousin from seeing the sexy jutsu.....I succeeded for about 6 months...but by that time he was a second grade cousin...much more mature, right? :lol:
And he told me that when his dad saw it he laughed xD
So I guess that's acceptible for a 3rd grader in this day and age?

It's very 1st airing on Toonami. It's what started my interest in Manga/Anime and it actually had me realize that things like DBZ were Japanese(I thought it was an American show at first). I was 10-11 and now i'm 15 and still obsessed with Naruto.

Well, i always watched toonami and one day they showed the first promo for it. It didn't sound good at first. I watched about the first three episodes then stoped. Later, When I was channel surfing, I saw the zabuza arc and I said "wow! this show is better than I thought it was!". I've been hooked ever since.

I was watching Toonami one day and then the preview commercial for Naruto came on and I my eyes were instantly hooked to the TV. After I saw the part about Naruto in the 9 tails cloak punching Haku through his own mirror, I thought to myself" Holy crap this show looks awesome! I'll have to watch it when it comes out!" So in many fewer words, I've been a fan since the beginning.

I remember I was still in elementary school. I saw the first few episodes. It was TERRIBLE. However, after watching later episodes. Mores specifically the Chunin Exam arch. That was entertainment. After that arch... the anime has been a roller coaster of TERRIBLENESS and THE ANTONYM OF TERRIBLENESS.

Mine:
My sister used to be allowed to stay up until later because she wanted to watch Naruto. I wasn't allowed to, so I hated Naruto, even though I had never watched it. Then one day I did. The first thing I saw was the third round of the chuunin exams (the first round of the competition). I liked it and started watching as well. Now I'm more of a fan than my sister!
... really stupid story, actually.

05-10-2011, 06:52 PM
I was flipping channels, and I had heard of Naruto before, so I put it on there and watched a bit.

It was one of the first episodes, and Naruto and Sasuke were fighting Haku. I was like "Wow, this is dumb" and I changed it. I have a friend who likes Naruto, and I was talking to her about it a while later. "Yea, I've seen one episode, but I had no idea what was going on. It was some chick in a mirror throwing needles."

Hahaha

I was nine and when I'd come back from Musical theatre classes I'd watch it. It came on around 3:30 pm I think. On cartoon network...I would make my mom rush home.
Last year I typed a song in and a naruto amv come up. I watched it and was like "they got older" :O. So I rewatched all the old naruto episodes watched shippuden than started reading the manga. And just loved it again.

When I walked into the Suncoast store (now closed) at the mall and saw the first 2 or 3 volumes of Naruto on display in the middle of the room. Thats around when it first came out here and was becoming popular. I got the first 2 or 3 and went home and read them immediately. I fell in love with the stories and characters and couldn't get enough! :D

I think I might have seen a chapter from the Chunnin exams part first though in a Shonen Jump magazine. think I read it and was interested which spurred the book buying.

My cousin's friend was obsessed with it a few years ago and we were at a party of hers and she was watching the Land of Snow movie and I thought it was boring. But a year or two later my cousin got the video game and I thought that was pretty fun even though I didnt know who anyone was, I just liked Rock Lee because he was funny looking. He was my favorite character for a long time.
But then in 6th grade I decided to pick up a Naruto manga at the library, it was volume 21 or 22 and turns out I read in the wrong direction the first time xD I figured it out, it took practice, but i figured out how to read Japanese manga! Yeah, I had never read a manga before xP but I really loved them after that!

So then I kept reading the manga and playing the games, eventually I found a good website to watch the anime on because the original Naruto hasnt come on my TV in about 5 years, I started liking Naruto 3 years ago.
But I like the Naruto fandom the most(fanfiction, fanart, couples, yaoi, doujinshi, cosplays) I got hooked on that last year.
:D

Um well this is gonna sound weird but the 1st time I watched Naruto was about 2 moths ago. I was up late with the baby and was watching DXD for whatever reason don't ask me. The show naruto Shippuden was on and I watched it for a few nights imagine hubby wondering what naruto shippuden was on the DVR. I watched for about a week and realized I was missing pieces of the story so I went on line and started with ep 1 and there you have it. I now am looking for the unedited version without subs I can't read and get into the story at the same time. Well there you have it;)

Well I may be a new fan. I ordered Naruto uncut box set 1 and 2 from amazon.com but I didn't get them yet. I will post my thoughts when I get around to seeing them. I hope this show is worth it. I love One Piece but I doubt this show Naruto will be better than that show. I will find out soon though.

I remember seeing the comerials for and thought that it was going to be some dumb show that will fail since it was on Cartoon Network. Also I was like in 4th grade at the time so I never even knew anime was real. But then all my friends started to watch it and I guess I saw one episode and was hooked and I started to watch repeats on week days at 5:30 and I just loved it.

yea thats my story :D

I'm going into freshmen year and Naruto is still with me...

07-18-2011, 07:29 PM
hmmmm. it would have been sometime in elementary school when naruto played on CN. it was during the chunin exams and i had noooooo clue what was going on. so i basically forgot about it. then last summer i started reading the manga till the end of the chunin exams and then school started so it ended. then this summer i started watching anime subs on hulu and have gotten into the beginning of shippuden. im trying to catch up to the new episodes before school starts again :p
