Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this compelling anime series about the adventures of a teenage apprentice ninja and his friends picks up two years after the popular Naruto series left off. There's plenty of action, though it's not excessive, and some episodes have no fight scenes at all. Nor is there any swearing or drinking, and the few hints of romance are quite tame. That said, the story is complex and heavily dependent on the previous series, making it tough for new viewers to catch on to what's happening.

Sexual Content

Some mild flirting.


Plenty of animated martial arts sequences, sometimes involving swords, daggers, and other hand-to-hand weaponry, but not much blood, gore, or intense imagery.


The characters often demonstrate their anger, astonishment, or other emotions with loud outbursts, but never with profanity.

Social Behavior

Teamwork and loyalty are important, though individual acts of daring and bravery are also rewarded. People who train hard and pay close attention to their instructors will improve their skills and win respect.


Young fans may request Naruto merchandise; there's plenty to choose from.
