SwordsManIV updated their review of Naruto
Score 9.2/10

Well, this isn't one of the best anime I've seen. Its mediocre, the story revolves around too much of the one team, Team 7; which consists of Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke, and Kekashi. The only part of the character system is that Masashi didn't really explain the story of Sakura. The other characters...

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion had a great concept. There are very few flaws in the first half of the anime. One of the few down sides is that since I'am more of a manga addict, I 'm disapointed at the fact that it is not precise to the original work. They jumbled all three of the mangas...
