     So, since I went to Otakon, I've been much more curious about Naruto, one of the most popular download-only anime out there. Right now, it's premiering here in America, with what I understand, the voice acting isn't quite terrible so much as it's not well done. Either way, I had the episodes lying around, and so I started watching them. I guess there is a pretty good reason why people watch it, it's a well done show. Certainly they could have worked harder to make the emotional moments not quite so blunt, but that's not really the focus of the show. The action is, as would be expected, well done, and the overall plot is pretty interesting. So far I like most of the characters, but I must say that Naruto's (the protagonist) tendency to show off is rather annoying... which although being intentional doesn't change the fact that it's annoying. I like the "inner voice" of our main female protagonist, but she seems to wear her emotions on her sleeve, and it's rather strange that she never seems to get many more lines during the action parts besides being frightened, or whining about her precious Sasuke-kun. As for Sasuke, I must say that I find him a rather shallow character (but, then again, I'd say the same for Naruto). He has much more of a past then any of the other characters (unless you consider Naruto acting out as a child history). But basically I've enjoyed it so far, but I'll need to "cleanse" myself afterward by watching an anime about bread, which I've heard is very good. Anyway, the one thing that I can't get over about this series is the awesomeness of the ending theme. It's called wind:
