Madman Releases Naruto

Sep 26th 2006
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NARUTO
BELIEVE IT! THE BIGGEST ANIME PHENOMENON SINCE DRAGON BALL Z IS ALMOST HERE. MADMAN RELEASES NARUTO ON DVD IN OCTOBER!

MELBOURNE, Wednesday, 27 September, 2006

Deep within the Hidden Leaf Village, sharp and cunning Ninja carry amazing talents and powers, and Naruto Uzumaki carries a dark secret. Twelve years ago, the fourth Hokage sacrificed himself to save the village by sealing the Nine-tailed Fox Spirit inside this orphaned newborn. Now, this plucky prankster must do what it takes to achieve his life-long goal to become the next Hokage!

Spanning 200 episodes, 3 feature movies and 36 volumes of manga—NARUTO is by far one of the most popular properties in Japan's history, achieving immense success across multiple licensed categories, from comics and TV to toys, trading card games, video games and more. What's more, from the buzz out of Japan and the U.S., the series already has a strong pre-awareness fan base in Australia. This series is highly anticipated!

Look out for NARUTO on Cartoon Network in late September, and that's just the start! NARUTO will be everywhere, with the Collectible Card Game also available from Croftminster in late September, ‘Naruto: Ultimate Ninja’ PS2 game from Atari in November and heaps of toys from Mattel in 2007.

NARUTO on DVD is presented uncut, with both English and Japanese language options and volume 1 will also be available to purchase with a limited edition collector's box.
