At first I was extremely resistant thinking it had too many Dragonball Z similarities. Then I caught the episode of Jiraiya attempting to teach Naruto the contract summons. The way in which Jiraiya begins preparing an unaware Naruto to have no regrets (i.e. tries to have him eat a good meal, spend his remaining cash, kiss his true love) before pushing him off a cliff to his potential death was awesome. Then, Gamabunta... Just awesome..
