Normally I'd refuse to put a long running anime as Anime of the Week simply because for the most part I'm not helping you discover a new series to watch which this blog series is meant for. Long running series tend to be the ones people know about already (take into consideration most people already know about Bleach and One Piece as well which Naruto is one of the big 3 from Shonen Jump) so putting Naruto is like a waste buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I'm currently re-watching episodes of this series in preparation to be second animal path Pain at the Albuquerque Comic Expo June 21-23, 2013 (I'm dressing as Orihime from Bleach on the first day, Pain the second and an original cat maid character the 3rd day). The whole arc about Naruto finishing off all the paths of Pain was really interesting, the whole thing because the like 3 or 4 versions of the Akatsuki is probably my favorite part of Naruto (other than the hotness that is Garra but I digress on being a fan girl right now). *sigh* I ended up spending about 9 hours marathoning episodes one day even though I only meant to watch a specific episode. I have the otaku disease bad!
