First Uncut Boxset in July

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

Word by way of Toonzone, at the New York Comic Con Viz announced that the first Naruto boxed will be released July 4, 2006. The set includes the first 13 episodes on 3 DVDs, with complete English and Japanese language soundtracks and several extras which have not been released in the U.S. or Japan.

What’s Ahead for the Anime

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

Word by way of Anime News Network, here are the titles for upcoming anime:

3-15-06 Episode 176: Zig Zag Run! Chase, Chased, Mistaken
3-22-06 Episode 177: OH?! Please, Mister Postman
3-29-06 Episode 178: Encounter, The Boy Named “Hoshi”

Episode 179 was figured to be the start of the Kakashi Gaiden, but the title for 178 certainly does not sound like a title pointing to the end of the first part of the series. Hopefully that means 179 will incorporate the last few bits that were in the last normal manga chapter, before Kakashi Gaiden officially begins.

Update: Pazuzu has provided us with updated title translations.
