Naruto is basically a role model to me, teaching me that I could overcome anything as long I believe in myself! I've read his adventures and followed the anime and saw how awesome he became. So Happy Birthday Naruto! May you keep inspiring people with your attitude!

Cheers!!

Naruto Uzumaki has always been a familiar individual to me. Familiar in the sense that he was somebody that I grew up with. His character has always been awe inspiring and amazing in countless ways. From his audacity to his sheer honesty, Naruto is and always has been a tenacious character who never gives up on people. I believe he has a character so rich that he sets a variety of allegorical parallels to abstract concepts such as hope itself. Honestly speaking, however Naruto still has his flaws. Everyone has flaws, such is human nature. In terms of his biggest flaw, I may venture to say that it's his lack of natural talent per se. But he more than makes up with his lack of talent with his perseverance. Perseverance even in the face of adversity is Naruto's greatest talent. No matter what people told him, or what people did to him, he worked hard. He worked harder and harder consistently until the point where he could prove everyone wrong. And yeah, sometimes he failed. But when he did, he just picked himself up again to keep trying. His character development in and of itself has always been fascinating because of this. As an individual, he may have taken some things that people said hard as a younger child, but then again, as would most other children. But he didn't hate people because of it as he aged. He tried to make a difference and gain the admiration of his fellow peers and citizens. Ultimately, has always been an inspirational figure. Inspirational such that his optimism has affected my life for the better.Through him I have learned change can happen, so long as you BELIEVE IT. But Naruto has always done more than believing. He does what he believes.


(Naruto practicing the rasengan, a predominate example of his tenacity)

Once in a while, there comes a piece of art so beautiful and all encompassing that you are spellbound by it. Naruto, considering all things, is just that. There has been no anime or manga in the recent history that compares. Nothing has given me the kind of hope and optimism that Naruto exudes. The storyline is flawless, but what touches you most is the foil of character, the small flaws inherent to them all, that does not glorify or abase them, but make them human. Indeed, Naruto, though bullied and made fun of, proved that he was much more than what people thought he was capable of. Everyone loves an underdog, but naruto is more than that. He is the underdog who nobody believed in, but whose determination and belief in himself transcended all the hurdles. When I am upset or hurt, I can just look at him and realize there is more to life than pitying oneself. Naruto has taught me to cut the whiny act and stand up and fight for oneself.


We are fighting dreamers!

Happy birthday buddy.

Happy Birthday Naruto!

To me Naruto is inspiration. A story about a boy whom even though he is made fun of and ridiculed, he still chose to follow his dreams and find his own path. This is special to me because I feel like most people give up own their dreams because other people doubt them and they end up doubting themselves. Naruto has made me realize that even though I may get made fun of our doubted, I should work toward my dreams and do what makes me happy.

Happy birthday, Naruto! Naruto means so much to me. He is a mentor to me. He taught me to never give up no matter how hard things get. He taught me to do your best. He taught me to never break my promises. He taught me so much that is why he is my mentor and that is why Naruto is my favorite show of all time. I got bullied all the time just like Naruto, he taught me to defend what I believe in and to protect the ones that I care about no matter what the cost. He taught me to stick up for myself. Naruto is my hero and mentor. I wish he was real.

Never give up. Right Naruto? The first episodes and (probably) till the last episode. You will look up and say 'I will never give up'. What you are to me, is a never dying courage inside of me yelling never give up, no matter how hard life is be it either family or school, I will still remember you raising your headband high, and showing me the will to move on in life. Uzumaki Naruto, I wonder why i care so much about you? It's because you are my friend. Happy Birthday, may your words and kind soul be engraved in my heart as I face all sorts of problems in life. Thank you, thank YOU! Uzumaki Naruto! Ore no tomodachi ..

The first time I watched Naruto, I was a freshman in high school, which was seven years ago. During this time, my best friend had committed suicide. I was lost without her. My grades were slipping, and I was finding it hard to sleep, eat, or even breathe. It was the first time that I knew what it felt like to be completely lost in a lonely world. As cliché as this may sound, Naruto saved my life. The night that I stumbled across this anime, I was feeling really low. I had no idea how I was going to make my life feel like it had meaning again, and truthfully, I wasn't even sure if I wanted to try anymore at all. And then, I watched the episode when Naruto was fighting Gaara, for the first time. I remember him saying this quote, “"It's almost unbearable, isn't it… the pain of being all alone. I know that feeling; I've been there, in that dark and lonely place, but now there are others, other people who mean a lot to me. I care more about them than I do myself, and I won't let anyone hurt them. That's why I'll never give up…” From that day, I decided that I couldn't just give up. I had to continue on. I realized there were a ton of people around me who wanted to help me, which I had shut out. Naruto showed me to fight for what I believe, no matter how the cards are stacked against me. Naruto taught me to believe in myself, even when no one else does. And most importantly, Naruto taught me to never give up or go back on my word or promises that I’ve made to others and more significantly, to myself.

For me Naruto is more than just an anime or a story. He changed my lifestyle and showed me how hard life can be but its not a reason to give up. He is a role model for me because he never gives up on his dream. He wanted to be become the Hokage since he was a child and I'm proud that I can see him growing up and see how he gets stronger. I feel so much emotions when I'm watching the anime. I'm so proud that I met you Naruto I love you. Happy Birthday.

I found Naruto six years ago and I can honestly say that without it I would probably not be here today. When my life was at it's worst Naruto was there for me to just escape and get away from my life for an hour a night. I followed Naruto when he felt alone and felt like everybody was against him and I could relate to that. I have grown along with the character and find myself in a much better place than I was when I started. Naruto ending theme wind pulls on the heart strings every time and reminds me how far I have come. It makes me feel so sad knowing that the show and manga have almost run their course. He has taught me not to give up and to keep an optimistic mindset on life. Always a part of my life, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY

Naruto stands on the idea to never give up, because with hard work you can achieve your goals if you have the guts and determination! Which is why Naruto is the only anime I watch dubbed and subbed and read the manga, all other shows I wait for an dub release date. But because Naruto is so awesome I couldn't wait and needed to find out whats happen to our epic hero. His way of living is the most ideal of all anime character and his ability to make friends with everyone makes him one of the most lovable character. But the Naruto ninja way is what sparks the little desire in us all to be the best we can and to strive for success.

Naruto was my introduction into the world of Shonen Jump and anime. I've been following this series ever since I can remember. Naruto himself instilled morals into me. Never giving up, keeping my promises at any cost, forgiving those that hurt you- these are things I saw him him do and I mean to do the very same. When I related to Naruto's pain and became a true fan, I didn't care what anyone said about me; I was going to do what I wanted and like what I wanted to like. To me, Naruto is the best friend I grew up with. I was with him from day one and i'm still here at the very end. I've been cheering him on the whole time and I feel that he's been doing the same not just for me, but for all the people who related with and were captivated by the story of a troublesome upstart with a big dream. Naruto's my friend and he'll always be the #1 Shinobi in my eyes.

Happy birthday, Naruto!!!

Only smart people give up on trying to save a lost friend and only idiots would do everything to get back what is lost. As Naruto said, he rather live rest of his life as an idiot if that's the case.

If Naruto can't even save a single friend, how is he going to become a Hokage?

All this saving friends and becoming Hokage talk gave me a new bright way in my life. A way where you puts most of your effort towards your friendship, family and life-goals. Naruto taught me how important friendship actually is and how you should handle it with care because your friends actually is fragile in a mental way. He also gave us plenty of tips about friendship. One of the most important is trust. We all know what trust is, and the opposite of it. we all have been through betrayals and loss. Right at this point Naruto saved us again, by teaching us "the way of ninja". It means that we should never give up nor run away and never go back on your words.

Naruto inspired me to do the things that I believe in, cherish the things that I have and not to worry about things I can't control. I cherish my friends more than anything just like naruto, I'm currently training I martial arts( I'll be getting my black belt in less than a year!!!) with an attitude to never give up even when things get hard I continue through the pain and am a better person for it, naruto showed me that even if the world is aginst you prove them wrong and you will succeed.
