Naruto Uncut Box Set 16 is a three DVD disc set that contains episodes two hundred and six through two hundred and twenty of Naruto. The first two discs contain five episodes, while the third disc contains five episodes and the special features. The set includes the conclusion of the Kurenai and Yakumo arc, the story about the Beauty of Nature, the Ninja Dropouts arc, the story about Menma, and members of the Artisan village trying to capture Gaara.
The first extra in the set is labeled as "Production Art." This consists of twenty pages, which are model sketches of some of the Naruto characters. There is a sneak preview for Naruto: Shippuden, which runs for about two and a half minutes; however, the audio is mastered a little on the soft side. You can also see the English credits in the "Extras" menu.
Next in the extras menu is a selection labeled "New From Viz Media." This link takes you to four pages of advertisements for Shonen Jump titles. A link in the extras menu labeled as "DVD Trailers" takes you to a trailer for Naurto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom. The final link in the extras menu is labeled as "Game Trailers," and it has trailers for: Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2, Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2, and Naruto: The Broken Bond.
While there were some good episodes on this set, Viz Media skimped more on the special features than on the other sets. One of the most notable differences is the fact that this set does not include a "From Sketch to Screen" feature, which had been included on the fifteen previous sets. The lack of features on this set is rather disappointing, since this is the last box set for the first Naruto anime series. I was expecting Viz Media to try to go to a little more effort to wrap up this series before moving on to Naruto: Shippuden. However, if you're a Naruto fan that wants to collect all of the episodes on DVD, then Naruto Uncut Box Set 16 should be added to your collection.
In order to write this review, I checked out a copy of this DVD box set through the King County Library System.
