A basic Naruto adventure,
This review is from: Naruto - The Lost Story [DVD] (DVD)
This Naruto OVA sees the hyperactive ninja and his team hired to protect Shibuki, the young leader of the Village Hidden in the Waterfall. Just as they are finishing their mission the village is attacked by a group of rouge ninja who are after the mystical Hero's Water, a substance that can greatly increase a persons Chakra. Naruto must not only help save the village but must also force Shibuki to overcome his fears.
This is an okay story that fits into the series sometime after the Chûnin exams, although where exactly is difficult to say. The animation and voice acting are on a par with the series proper and although the story doesn't have any bearing on the plot of the series, it is interesting nonetheless. I would say that this OVA is about as good as the average Naruto episode but it there was potential here that wasn't used. Basically this story is a bit of enjoyable Naruto fluff that would probably be enjoyed most by diehard fans of the series rather than the casual viewer.
