It's quite tragic but nothing I can put down in writing could ever properly detail my confusing relationship with "Naruto". As a young man I used to love "Naruto" more than anything in the world. There was once I time when I would live, breath and eat the series. "Naruto" I actually hold in reverence, whether or not it is believed that I do thanks to the way I see it now is up to the person reading the review but I can assure you that I've never lived a day where I havn't thought about the rambunctious Ninja and his pals.
It was the first ever Anime I knowingly watched. A friend from school put me onto it and within a single episode I was captured by the charm of the "punky" main character. Watching the Anime than lead me to begin reading the Manga, reading the Manga than lead me onto playing the video games, and experiencing the franchise as a whole lead me onto the path of a career to do with Japanese Pop Culture so, as you can see, "Naruto" means a great deal to me regardless of whether or not I still enjoy the series.
Thanks to our friends over at Madman Entertainment, us at SnapThirty were given a couple of tickets for the special screening weekend of the film here in Australia. To be able to experience a piece of "Naruto" media entitled "The Last" with some of the people that made the series so popular, the fans, was extremely exciting...unfortunately that may have been the most enjoyable part of this film.
