This week, we have a Patreon picked episode topic: Naruto. The crew talks about the over20-year franchise and how it’s become an anime that marks a generation, all with the help of Grant from Gilmore Ball Z. We talk about weird running form, themes throughout the show, the staying power of the show, the big Dragon Ball Z versus Naruto debate, and more. Big shoutout to our Patreon patron Nikko for picking this episode this month!
Naruto Kai is a fan project dedicated to removing filler, padding and any other executive-minded nonsense that made the Naruto animated series the mess that it is. Each episode roughly corresponds to each volume of the comic, running for about 1 and a half to 2 hours.
