If you've never seen Naruto before--DO NOT START HERE....GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING AND START THERE....NOW....SERIOUSLY.
All right, now that that's out of the way, let's move on. This boxed set spends basically the whole time in the forrest of death. Let me tell you, Naruto's team gets the worst of it, because the bad guy is after them--of course--. Sasuke has the curse mark put on him, bad guy(Orochimaru) puts another seal on Naruto's nine-tailed fox so Naruto can no longer access it's chakra while fighting, and we finally see Sakura doing some real fighting. I love the fact that all nine rookies make it through the second part of the exam. I'm sitting there going, "YES! You just got your butts kicked by the rookies!" This set ends in the middle of the preliminary exams, which they are having because too many people passed the second part. Of course, it ends right in the middle of Sasuke's battle. (Grumble to yourself and go get the next boxed set. Better yet, just get 4 when you get this one.)
The first two boxes were very interesting, you know that- unless you should be heeding my warning above about not starting here-but this is where things really start heating up. And it just gets better from here-I know because I've seen about 100-103 episodes(unfortunately that is all that has aired here in the U.S. -sad face-, if you live in Japan, you might have seen more like 250 or so -jealous face-)
As I have said in, at least most, of my other reviews, buy these sets on sale. See that number of aired episodes in Japan up there. 250. Average of 13 episodes in each box. 250 divided 13??? Round it up to 20 boxed sets. And from what I have read about where that last episodes ends, there will be more. If you pay 50 bucks for each boxed set, you are CRAZY. or rich, but still...crazy. Amazon has pretty good sales around labor day weekend. I saved around 90.00 dollars by buying the first five boxes on labor day weekend (okay, I only pre-ordered the fifth cause it wasn't out yet). Save yourself some money. If they keep on releasing them as they have been, a new boxed set will be coming out about every three months."
Good addition to the box sets

"well i finnaly got it today i also own the other two boxsets and this one was just as good as the others it starts right in the forest of death and ends right before the sudden death eliminations the perfect place to end in my opinion just like the other box sets you have the options of watching it in japanese with english subtitles or you can watch it in english with subtitles as well so you can see what they say in the japanese version while watching it in english perfect the album art on the inside of the box is also very nice if your looking for an addition to your naruto collection this is the boxset for you"
Naruto at it's finest.

"I've bought past Naruto boxed sets from different anime sites and these are by far the best ones. The subtitling is very good and almost the same with the fan subbed versions. I wish they would release more boxed sets so they can at least catch up with the series. Naruto:Shippuden series is getting better and better. For anyone who is looking to buy boxed Naruto sets I would strongly suggest theses."
Volume 3... Still pushing forward on this great series...

"Volume 3 of the series starts with a very humourous introduction that recaps the first 25 episodes due to a "mistake" made by Naruto. It then introduces the new opening song... which is a very addictively awesome song. In my oppinion one of the best openings I've heard from any series, animated or not.
Volume 3 takes the viewer into the forest of death where the main villian for the series is first glimpsed in Orochimaru. Volume 3 is also where Naruto begins to let some lesser shown characters take the spotlight. Rock Lee... the annoying little brat from Volume Two becomes an instant fan favourite as he shows his skills and his high morals. And Sakura, finally does something useful while her comrades are out.
Once you watch Volume 3 there is no going back. Naruto will have you hooked!"
