Good episodes, but Viz Media is still slacking on the special features

Naruto Uncut Box Set 7 is a three DVD disc set that contains episodes seventy-nine through ninety-two of Naruto. The first disc contains four episodes, the second disc contains five episodes, and the third disc contains five episodes and the special features. The focus of this box set is on the death of the Third Hokage, the battle between Sasuke and Itachi, and Jiraiya and Naruto's search for Tsunade.

The first extra is labeled as "Production Art." This consists of ten pages, which are model sketches of some of the Naruto characters. There is a sneak preview of Naruto Uncut Box Set 8, which runs for roughly four minutes. Next is "From Sketch to Screen," which contains eight pages of storyboards from episode eighty-five. For each storyboard, you can choose to see the clip that the storyboard is for. You can also see the English credits in the "Extras" menu.

A link in the extras menu labeled as "Trailers" takes you to four trailers. The first is a trailer for the Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution videogame. However, this trailer feels more like a "how to" tutorial for playing the game instead of an actual advertisement; also, the audio is mastered very low on this clip, so it's really hard to hear it unless you turn the volume way up. There are also trailers for Bleach, The Prince of Tennis, and Death Note included.

Next in the extras menu is a selection labeled as "Manga." This link takes you to advertisements for Shonen Jump Magazine, an advertisement for the Naruto manga, and a couple of advertisements for other Shonen Jump manga titles. The final selection in the menu is labeled as "Sneak Peek"; it turns out that this selection takes you to a trailer promoting Viz Media's release of the Buso Renkin anime series.

I'm still rather disappointed in the lack of special features on this set, even though I've come to expect it. However, if you're a Naruto fan that wants to collect all of the episodes on DVD, then the Naruto Uncut Box Set 7 would be a good addition to your DVD library.

In order to write this review, I checked out a copy of this DVD box set through the King County Library System.
