“Naruto” comes to HBO Max: how many episodes are available?

When Naruto Uzumaki was just a newborn baby, the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, gave his life to invoke the Shiki Fjin and seal this creature inside the little one. As an orphan and recipient of the evil Kurama, he grew up as an outcast and suffered from teasing, insults, and mistreatment until his teens. Lonely and helpless, he devoted more of his attention to mischief than studies until a mentor inspires him to become a great ninja.

At the Ninja Academy, all the students are divided into three Genin groups and Naruto is assigned to sensei Hatake Kakashi along with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno. The trio of youngsters didn’t get along all that well at first, but each challenge and traumatic experience brings them together, while darkness looms over them from the shadows to separate them.
