Naruto is a word that has been mispronounced ever since I was just a little kid more interested in Spongebob, although I did know what manga was, as I collected Gundam Robots & Comics.
It took me 15 years to be re-introduced to manga and anime, but...
as of the past few years, I not only started to watch anime, but I quickly (within my first series) started binging series after series.
Naruto is one of the classics you cannot miss.
