Naruto was my childhood plain and simple. It was my nerdy gateway drug of awesomeness without it I would have never passed down the slippery slope from anime to Japanese Rock (popularly known as J-Rock) and into the Korean music and television scene. I know that I’m not the only person with this similar story and we all patiently waited for so many years to have closure for Naruto and all his friends. If you are familiar with Naruto you know that we never got that closure because the ending of the television chronicle of Konoha’s favorite Knuckle-headed Ninja introduced more than we could bargain for. Age was never really discussed in the series but between the two shows (Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden) we watch Naruto from age 12 to about age 17 and then at the end of the series we are surprised with some Harry Potter-esque 19 years later epilogue crap that instead of giving fans closure caused so many questions about occupations, lifestyles, and CHILDREN!!!
