Naruto is well-plotted in a way that it keeps you engaged with very interesting and fantastic scenes. And also, if you want to have a clue of the history of Japan and how rich their culture is, then you need to pay attention to Naruto Movies. Time will fail me to talk about how action-packed it is, and a whole bunch of lessons to learn from it. It is not just entertainment, it is also motivational. As it stands now, I will be right to say that Naruto is one of the pioneers of modern Shōnen anime.

With a total of 720 episodes, Naruto can be said to be the longest-running in the history of anime and also the highest grossing. That is why when you start watching the Naruto series, you are in for a long ride, and most times people get confused about the sequence. Series is always more interesting when you follow it according to order, and Naruto is no different. When you watch Naruto in order, you understand it better.

To start, you need to know that Naruto has two segments. The first is the main Naruto that has 220 episodes, and the second is Naruto Shippuden, the second has more episodes of about 500.
