Naruto – The Animanga Series

The following is a brief outline of the Japanese animanga series, Naruto (contains Manga spoilers).

The story of Naruto follows young Uzumaki Naruto on his journey through the ninja world. Naruto grows up with quite a burden to carry as he soon learns he is the container or Jinchuuriki of one of the Tailed Beasts – the Nine Tailed Demon Fox. The reason, as I understand at least, for Naruto being the container was that when the Fox attacked the village, the village’s leader, called the Hokage, who we now know was Naruto’s father, had to seal the Fox in order to save the village of Konoha. It seems logical that Yondaime (the Hokage) would choose his own son to seal the Fox within for reasons which I won’t go into here. Unfortunately this act of sealing the Fox cost Yondaime his life and so far we are unsure of how Naruto’s mother died.

As a result of being the container of the Fox who many years ago wreaked havoc in Konoha and killed dozens of ninja, Naruto grows up being hated throughout the village and ends up being a bit of a troublemaker in an attempt to get attention from others. In the long run though, we see that this gives Naruto unbelievable mental strength and his attitude to never give up often shows up in the storyline. Had Naruto not been hated in his childhood, which his father had obviously wished against, he might not have turned out to be the exceptional individual we see in the Manga at present.

Aside from Naruto, the story closely follows the lives of other ninja, most notably Naruto’s rival and friend, Uchiha Sasuke. The life of Sasuke develops in complexity as the story goes on and it brings yet another theme into Naruto as the young Uchiha is set on revenge for the massacre of his clan by his brother Itachi. An amazing twist in the plot more recently changes everything for Sasuke and it becomes very hard to tell just what Sasuke is thinking which makes this series even more exciting than it already was.

Other major characters in the series include Haruno Sakura and Hatake Kakashi, Naruto’s teammate and Sensei, all of whom along with Sasuke and the main character himself make up Team Seven. Others include Jiraiya one of the legendary three ninja who is responsible for teaching Naruto his more advanced ninja techniques along with Tsunade, Iruka and many more.

New ABC TV Series Visitors

New ABC series “Visitors” ? With all of the new television shows and series premiering every Fall, you might start to wonder if there are any original ideas left to create a story around.  There always seem to be new ideas, or different twists on old ideas, and sometimes, a new set of eyes can make all the difference

The Fall 2009 lineup includes the TV Show V, which is a remake of a miniseries from the 1980’s.  It is set to premiere on ABC on November 3, 2009, and will air four weekly episodes.  After that point, it will be put on hiatus until early Spring 2010.

Science fiction fans are sure to enjoy this smart, stylish program, which has a similar basic premise as its 1980 counterpart.  The futuristic tale begins as giant spaceships appear around the capital cities of the world.  Although these alien “visitors’ profess to come in peace, many earthlings become instantly suspicious, among them, Erica Evans, a Homeland Security Agent.  As agent Evans investigates the motives of these visitors, the aliens are methodically recruiting young humans, including Erica’s son, to do their own investigative work.

Although the “V”isitors are able to win over many of the people on the planet, primarily by their seemingly humanitarian gestures of curing a variety of diseases, there begins to grow a small group of resistors, who, like Erica, do not trust these visitors.  Agent Evan’s hunches prove to be well-founded, as she discovers that the “visitors’ are actually in the final stages of their decades long infiltration of many governments and businesses, the end result of which will enable them to take over the world.

If the new TV series visitors, doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, you should listen to what the critics are saying before you write it off.  Many have stated that the pilot is among the best they have seen in recent memory.  USA Today critic Robert Bianco has numbered the TV Show V among his top ten new shows and stating that this remake is extremely well made.  When an idea is worth remaking, it is usually because there is just something special about it.
