Movie Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow (2004)

20180514:
It's been a while since I've watched Naruto, and I figured a good way to work up to watching more Shippuden episodes would be to watch the first three Naruto movies.

Naruto Uzumaki (JP: Junko Takeuchi / EN: Maile Flanagan)

I enjoyed watching this first one. Story-wise it is cohesive with the Naruto storyline and could have easily fit into the anime as a filler.

Kakashi Hatake (Kazuhiko Inoue)

Remark: After I watched this movie, I wondered about the difference between television and movie as media formats. In particular, I couldn't help but think of season 5 of Futurama: four sets of four episodes, where each set of four episodes comes from a movie.

Naruto, Sakura Haruno (JP: Chie Nakamura / EN: Kate Higgins), and Sasuke Uchiha (JP: Noriaki Sugiyama / EN: Yuri Lowenthal)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 78% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.


Fubuki Kakuyoku (JP: Jun Karasawa / EN: Cindy Robinson), Nadare Roga (JP: Hirotaka Suzuoki / EN: Liam O'Brien), Mizore Fuyuguma (JP: Hari (Holly) Kaneko / EN: Kyle Hebert)

Instant Comments:
Lol. This has got to be just a movie shooting.
"What are you guys doing?" "Killing time."


Naruto preps his Rasengan.
