Anime in 200 Words: Naruto Special 2: Battle at Hidden Falls. I am the Hero!
Premise: A simple mission of escorting a leader home turns into much more when the village is attacked. Now, Team 7 must defend the people of Hidden Falls and restore the peace before they can return home.
Characters: Naruto, Kakashi, Sakura, and Sasuke get most of the screen time, though there are some people who only appear in this special.
Audience: People who watched Naruto, though they don’t need to watch much to know the characters.
Story: This is about the same as any given Naruto filler arc; a problem is introduced, filler characters show up, ninjas use flashy techniques, and everyone goes home happy. All that considered though, it is still pretty entertaining.
Battles: They’re on par with most Naruto battles, but none of them are astounding enough to be engraved into one’s mind. The effects of the town’s secret treasure, however, are definitely interesting.
Overall: There’s a lot of Naruto animation out there, and this special is decent stuff. If you’re looking for something to watch beyond Naruto, and don’t have time for a movie, Battle at Hidden Falls is a safe choice.
