If you had/have kids would/will you watch Naruto with them?
I have kids and we actually have watched a few of the sillier Naruto episodes together (the two “unmasking Kakashi” eps for example). Naruto is pretty violent, even part one, and it deals with some various disturbing themes, so I would wait until they’re older to watch it properly.
I would definitely use it as an example of why thinking critically about media is important. I would ask them to think about the way the government is depicted and whether heroic characters are as pure as the narrative paints them. As the plot goes on, we would absolutely talk about how Kishimoto uses “fate” as a way to sidestep Sasuke’s legitimate reason for going homicidally insane, attributing his desire for revolution to a “curse”, paving the way for a sequel where nothing changes.
I’m never telling them I wrote fanfic though. Some things you just don’t want to know about your parents.
