Bunshin no jutsu

Expect Star Wars length lines @ the Regal St. Louis Mills Stadium theater Wednesday, June 6th as “Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow” plays for the first and last time staring around 7 pm.  As one of the only 160movie screen nationwide showing the film (that’s one per metro area by my count), this screening will be the last chance for any fans in St. Louis to watch the film.  And while longtime fans of this popular manga and TV anime series should probably already be aware of the one day only premiere, casual fans of this bestselling manga series might do well to wait until the film’s DVD release this September 4th.

While I must confess my ignorance generally towards the world of manga/anime, Naruto has been a favorite in my circle of friends for years now.  It’s characters are full of such youthful enthusiasm to make me cheer them on like a five-year old on a Saturday morning, and yet their challenges are full of all the twists and strategy of a classic martial arts film.  That being said, while I’m sure my friends will have already watched the original untranslated version through some matter of file sharing networks already, any other initiates into the series (a la Cartoon Network’s American adaptation) would have the wisdom of a Hokage to see the film as intended this only time.
