How were you hooked on Naruto?
I'll fill you guys in on my story.
One day i was hanging out at my boys house, and we were doing the usual. Eating snacks, playing ps3, and listening to music. I noticed his little brother was on the computer in the same room so I looked at what he was doing. He was watching Naruto pain invasion arc. My friend came over and told me he always watches that gay cartoon and that it was weird because it was in japanese with only english subtitles. I agreed that it was weird because it was japanese with english subtitles, but it was some pretty awesome action, so I thought it looked cool. At that time it just wasn't my thing so I didn't care much for it, and I just let it go and went about my day. A few days later I was just sitting at my desk and I was completely bored. I decided to give this Naruto a check and watched a few episodes. I was instantly addicted and I watched the anime from naruto shippuden episode 1 until the last episode in the pain invasion arc that had released(It took quite a while, like 2-4 vids a day). After I was done, I was so confused because I was just waiting for the new anime to release. After doing a bit of searching, I found Narutobase and I found out Naruto had a little comic that I could read(It was further along than the anime). I realized the manga had more details than the anime at this point so I went back and decided to read all the manga. By this point I noticed people actually talked about this, and since I couldn't really talk about this irl without people instantly labeling me a nerd and being dropped several social statuses, I decided to finally partake in these discussions. Of course at first I was a noob, but eventually I was molded into this humorous Genma wanking fool that you all adore!
Thats my story on how Naruto hooked me, if you have a story feel free to post it. If you read the entire thing thanks!
PS: Genma gang or die!
