How Long Would It Take to Watch All of Naruto?
Naruto part 1 and Naruto Shippuden have a total of 720 episodes.
Part 1 has 220 episodes whereas,
Part 2 has 500 episodes.
Out of the 720 episodes, 295 episodes are filler episodes and can be skipped to save time.
Every episode of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden is around 23 mins including the opening and the ending credits.
It depends on the individual as to how many episodes they can watch in a single day.
Some people watch around 5-10 episodes one day, some 15, and some watch around 2-3.
It varies from person to person and it also depends on their daily schedules. If you’ve got the time then you can watch anywhere from 5-10 episodes per day.
If you watch 5 episodes per day then it will take around 3 months to complete the series Excluding the filler episodes.
Watching 10 episodes will take around 1 and a half months again excluding fillers.
Watching 2 episodes per day will take around 7-8 months depending on your consistency and again excluding filler episodes.
Including filler episodes will take much more time depending on how many filler episodes you plan to watch and how many you plan to skip. The above given time is the minimum number of days required to watch Naruto and Naruto Shippuden.
I recommend you not to rush through the series, take your time and enjoy every single episode completely to the fullest.
How Long are Naruto Episodes?
Not just Naruto but any Anime, in general, is around 23 mins average.
The 23 mins runtime includes the opening credits, with an opening song that changes every season and every opening has different scenes, characters, and animation depending upon the arc.
After the opening credits, there’s usually a small recap of what happened in the previous episode which is around 1-3 mins depending upon the Anime.
After that, the rest of the run time until 20 mins is the main plot of that particular episode taking place where everything related to that episode takes place.
The last 3 mins include the ending credits which give credit to all the people who worked on the episode, its animation, and all the voice actors involved in the episode. The ending credits also come with a song that also has different animation scenes and characters.
Japanese singers are very talented and Naruto part 1 & 2 has a great opening and ending songs which are worth listening to.
What to Watch After Naruto Shippuden Episode 500?
Once you’ve completed all the episodes of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden then the next thing to watch are the Naruto Movies. We have already made a list in a separate article talking in detail as to in what order you are supposed to watch the Naruto movies.
To put it in simple words, all Naruto movies are considered fillers as they do not connect to the main storyline apart from “The Last Naruto the Movie”.
After completing 500 episodes of Naruto Shippuden, you may proceed and watch “The Last Naruto the Movie”.
After finishing that movie, you have two options:
- Watch “Boruto: Naruto the Movie”. It is a direct continuation of Naruto Shippuden and is written by Masashi Kishimoto (creator of Naruto) himself. It is a great movie where we see Naruto as the Hokage and Boruto is now becoming a shinobi.
- The 2nd option is that you can skip the movie and start watching the anime “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations”. This is also a continuation of Naruto Shippuden and a plus point is that the events from Boruto: Naruto the movie also take place in this anime from episode 50-65. So, it’s perfectly fine to skip the Boruto movie and watch the anime.
So, these are the options and you can either choose one of them or just watch both of them.
Boruto anime has new modes (like Baryon Mode of Naruto) and abilities of other main storyline characters which you don’t want to miss out on at all!
I recommend choosing 2nd option and starting to watch the anime “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” instead of just the Movie!
How Many Seasons of Naruto Are There?
Naruto part 1 has 220 episodes which are covered in 5 seasons.
Naruto Shippuden has 500 episodes which are covered in 21 seasons.
So, in total there are 720 episodes of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden which are covered in 26 Seasons in Total.
They are in a different arrangement on Netflix!
How Many Seasons of Naruto Are on Netflix?
Netflix has the entire part 1 of Naruto.
Netflix has decided to divide the episodes into their number of seasons.
Thus, Netflix has 9 seasons of Naruto part 1.
The number of episodes in each season varies from the official numbering done by Crunchyroll and other official sources.
Officially Naruto part 1 should have around 220 episodes covered in 5 seasons.
The same 220 episodes are covered in 9 seasons according to Netflix’s way of dividing the episodes. This has always confused the viewers because of the inconsistency between Netflix and other official sources.
Netflix only has Part 1 of Naruto and it does NOT have Shippuden.
So, you will need to watch Naruto Shippuden either through Crunchyroll or any other sources available in your country.
What to Watch After Naruto on Netflix?
After finishing Naruto on Netflix, I recommend you to watch Naruto Shippuden on either Crunchyroll or any other source as per your choice.
After finishing Naruto Shippuden, watch “The Last: Naruto the Movie”.
After finishing the movie, watch Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime. This anime is still ongoing so try catching up and enjoy the show.
