Hello everyone! This post is probably coming through a little late, (it's officially 10/11 now! ^^;) but I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to Naruto! I always tend to remember his unique birthday of 10/10, but last time I forgot to post about it. I'm making up for it now!
Most people know Naruto already, so I'd just like to give a little background about my love for the anime. I basically started watching Naruto when I was just entering 6th grade. I finally had access to a laptop, and I was just getting into the depths of technology. This was around the time YouTube was created, and you could find virtually anything online, including full Naruto episodes.
If you know me well, you'd know that I love English dubs and I love the hard wok the voice actors put into their work. So of course, since I started Naruto with dubs, this version has a special place in my heart. I guess you could call Naruto somewhat of a gateway anime for me. I watched things like Pokemon and Digimon as a kid, but they didn't really seem like anime at the time.
So while Naruto led me to other anime series that I deeply enjoy, it still is very special for me. So I'm happy to wish the main character of Naruto, Naruto Uzumaki, a happy birthday today! Let's enjoy these last few weeks as we await for a wonderful end to this amazing series!
