Hīrōbites – Uzumaki Naruto, Origin of a hero

Let’s celebrate Uzumaki Naruto’s birthday

Today is the birthday of Uzumaki Naruto. We have seen this young shinobi grow from a young prankster to a hero that his village looks up to with sage-like powers. At the beginning of this anime series, Naruto is still a young teenage ninja or shinobi at the Konoha village’s ninja school. He is an orphan and tries hard to get everybody’s recognition, although other children’s parents try to keep their kids away from him for reasons he does not understand.

The reason for that is linked to a battle between a giant, god-like magical fox, known as the Nine-Tailed Fox and the then-leader of the shinobi, the fourth Hokage, which we later learned to be Naruto’s father. After a battle to the death against the beast, the fourth Hokage caught and sealed the Fox into Naruto, who was but a newborn baby at the time. This event caused Naruto’s parents’ death, leaving him orphaned.

As a result of the Fox sealed in him, the village people regard Naruto as the Nine-Tailed Fox himself and often treat him with disdain throughout most of his childhood. The third Hokage forbade anyone of mentioning the attack by the Nine-Tail Fox to anyone, including Naruto, meaning he never understood why the town hates him, while also being unaware of the Fox inside of him. All this starts to change at age 12 and this is where the original anime really kicks off. When the Naruto anime ended in 2007 with 220 episodes, it was followed the same year by the current anime Naruto Shippuuden that follows the story-line three years later and is currently on its 478th episode.
