5.0 out of 5 stars The Broken Bond, 2 Mar 2009

This review is from: Naruto Unleashed - Complete Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
With a brand new Hokage and the threat of the sand Ninja far behind them, the Leaf village is at a rare stage of prosperity. However, darkness is slowly engulfing one of the village's inhabitants.
After being defeated by his brother, Sasuke has become a shadow of his former self and has become even broodier (if thats possible). The frustration of his defeat coupled with his jealousy of comrade Naruto's increasing skills leads Sasuke down a dark path. The series begins by swiftly concluding the 'land of tea' filler arc in which Naruto and the rest of his squad have to protect a runner as he participates in a race to decide the future of his village. Once this is dealt with, things really start to get good.

In all his emo angst, Sasuke abandons the Leaf village in search of more power which will ultimately lead him straight into the hands of Orochimaru. Sasuke is accompanied by the sound Ninja 4 who briefly appear during series three's invasion of Konoha story arc. Therefore, the newly appointed chunin, Shikamaru, assembles the Sasuke retrieval squad which comprises of himself, Choji, Neji, Kiba and of course Naruto. Shortly after, they all set off to retrieve thei comrade. What follows is some non stop Naruto action that hs made the series so great. Even at this later stage of the story, the fights still remain as clever and intriguing as ever. This segment of the series sees each member of the Sasuke retrieval squad face off, one on one with one of the sound ninja, thus leaving the others to go on ahead. This trend follows suit until only Naruto remains to face Sasuke in the legendary fight at the monumental Hokage statues. Although this often becomes repetetive and predictable, the fights themselves are enough to make you forget about that and become hooked. Moreover, these fights allow the series to provide some much welcomed characterisation of some of the characters who until now have not been fleshed out. On top of this there is also the memorable battle between the bone crunching sound ninja Kimmimaro and Gaara, making this boxset, a series that can't be missed.

As usual the animation and music are brilliant, but like previous Naruto releases, the only special features are a colection of old trailers for other manga entertainment releases. Once again, you have the choice of watching in English or Japanese with english subtitles.

Series 5 is a crucial part of the Naruto saga and is important as it is the building blocks leading towards the sequel series 'Naruto Shippuuden. The events and action that take place in this series have major effects on the future of the Naruto series' as a whole. It can be said that this stage of the story is a turning point for Naruto. Furthermore, this collection contains the last full series of Naruto to be entirely non-filler. After this the series does not follow the manga and becomes completely original (and definetly inferior) filler material. (Albeit a few episodes of the next series which will finish off the story from this set). So for those who have been collecting the Naruto boxsets so far, series 5 is an essential purchase as it carries on the story and introduces one of the most important story arcs of the series as a whole. For newcomers to Naruto, start on series 1 because you wont have a clue what is going on. This boxset contains episodes 104 - 130. It is fantastic to see that Naruto is still as entertaining and charming as ever, and it still manages to pull off it's fair share of suprises and plot twists that leave the viewer wanting more. So, as this is possibly the last truly great Naruto boxset to released (until shippuden that is) it is a really great purchase for all Naruto fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short Review, 8 Jun 2011

This review is from: Naruto Unleashed - Complete Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
I think Naruto is great and other reviews do the series more justice than I can comment on, this is just a quick note to say this Boxset is a single plastic case with the 6 discs inside on plastic 'pages' 2 discs to a page. Not like the Picture supplied with the product info. The animation is also of a higher standard - everything seems so much sharper and more defined than Boxsets 1-4.

Spoilers!!

Still plenty of back story to sit through and loads of Sakura crying and whining about Sasuke not loving her, but once it gets going (about disc 3) its awesome. Not Really much Naruto on this Boxset (until the last disc) but loads of everyone else, lots of new and really good background information about each of the retrieval team, each of them has a fight that lasts several episodes so if you like the other character Neji, Chouji etc its excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars ACTION ADVENTURE AT ITS BEST, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Naruto Unleashed - Complete Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
This Series starts off where the last one left of with the first two episodes 105 to 106 concluding the first Filler Arc that accompanied the ending of the previous Boxset. With that Filler over the rest of the story keeps up with full on Manga Canon material with Episodes 107 to 130 been all about the Sasuke Retrieval Arc.

This Story Arc sees a jealous and power-hungry Sasuke finally give into the darkness and leaves the Hidden Village in order to pursue his goals the only way he sees fit. A Squad led by Shikamaru with Neji, Kiba, Choji and Naruto included head after him to bring him back but are stopped at every turn by the villainous Sound Four Members who provide this Series with awesome one on one action and emerge as interesting and unique Villains, the type of foes that won't be around until at least the set of Villains seen in Shippuden.

This Series is full of character development and moments where we get the chance to see some unique interactions and development of characters we like and those we usually wouldn't see while at the same time with the story leading up to a emotional confrontation between Naruto and Sasuke that will set up the future Arcs of Fillers to come along with what will come to pass in Shippuden.

One of the best Story Arches, this is one you don't want to miss as it has some of the best action moments yet seen along with appearances of some surprising characters that make this particular Boxset just awesome to behold.

The only downside is there is a lot of talking and strategy been made but it is one of the bases that the show is known for and one of the few things that sets it apart from other over the top explosive action Animes and another reason overall why Arc and Naruto as a whole is brilliant.

I'll start by saying the box art is incredible!
The story line itself is amazing, you can really get into the characters stories individually, and you can see why this anime is so popular across the world.
I would seriously recommend to anyone, you should watch this!
