[Daily article] May 2: Naruto Uzumaki

Naruto Uzumaki is the fictional protagonist of the Japanese manga series
Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. A carefree, optimistic and
boisterous teen ninja who befriends other ninja, he aspires to become
the leader of his fictional village, Konohagakure. He appears in anime,
films, video games and original video animations, as well as a sequel
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, with his son Boruto Uzumaki as the
protagonist. Kishimoto initially aimed to keep the character “simple and
stupid”, while giving him many attributes of an ideal hero, and a tragic
past. The author has revised Naruto’s image many times, providing the
character with different clothes intended to appeal to Western audiences
and to make him easier to illustrate. Naruto is voiced by Junko Takeuchi
(pictured) in the original animated series and Maile Flanagan in the
English adaptations. The character’s development has been praised by
anime and manga publications, and has drawn scholarly attention.

Wikiquote quote of the day:

  The Art of a well-developed genius is far different from the
Artfulness of the Understanding, of the merely reasoning mind.
Shakspeare was no calculator, no learned thinker; he was a mighty, many-
gifted soul, whose feelings and works, like products of Nature, bear the
stamp of the same spirit; and in which the last and deepest of observers
will still find new harmonies with the infinite structure of the
Universe; concurrences with later ideas, affinities with the higher
powers and senses of man. They are emblematic, have many meanings, are
simple and inexhaustible, like products of Nature; and nothing more
unsuitable could be said of them than that they are works of Art, in
that narrow mechanical acceptation of the word.  
–Novalis
