Best Anime; Best Background Score; Best character development; Best Story;
Naruto was good, but it aimed for children and +. But the sequel Shippuden, has aimed for Universal Audience. Naruto has grown more mature, and he is not always running behind Sakura. In this series you'll get to know more about the characters past, especially Naruto. The Antagonists are more deadly and powerful.
The series has some HEART WRENCHING MOMENTS in it. I had to see them at least 100 times per day. In certain scenes, i almost cried.
Major Plus point is the Background Music. It is OUTSTANDING. No anime had/had this type of Music.
I admit that certain Filler episodes are just boring, but they always carry certain TYPE of message with them.
This anime is the GOD of all anime's and NO other anime will ever defeat it.... No.1 anime.
I give it a solid 10/10...
