Naruto Uncut Season Three Volume 1

The Naruto Uncut Season Three Volume 1 box set is a six DVD set that contains episodes 107 through 135 of the Naruto anime series. The first disc contains four episodes, the second disc contains five episodes, the third disc contains five episodes and bonus features, the fourth disc contains five episodes, the fifth disc contains five episodes, and the sixth disc contains five episodes and bonus features. The focus of the episodes in this set is Sasuke's defection from the Hidden Leaf Village and the Sasuke Retrieval Arc.

Just like the previous four boxes in this set of Naruto releases, this is a "bare bones" release; there are no booklets or inserts included in the box. When it comes to the actual discs included in this set, they are exactly the same as the discs that were released in the Naruto Uncut Box Set 9 and Naruto Uncut Box Set 10 box sets.

The first bonus feature on the third disc is labeled as "Production Art." This consists of 15 pages, which are model sketches of some of the Naruto characters. There is a sneak preview for Naruto Uncut Box Set 10, which runs for roughly three minutes; it should be noted that the audio for the preview is mastered lower than the episodes on the disc. Next is "From Sketch to Screen," which contains eight pages of storyboards from episode 112; 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.

Next in the extras menu is a selection labeled as "New From Viz Media." This link takes you to advertisements for Shonen Jump magazine, the Naruto manga, and two pages featuring other Shonen Jump manga titles. A link in the extras menu labeled as "Trailers" takes you to a set of trailers. There are trailers for the Naruto: Ninja Destiny video game, the Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution video game, Bleach, The Prince of Tennis, Buso Renkin, Hunter x Hunter, and Death Note.

The first bonus feature on the sixth disc is labeled as "Production Art." This consists of 15 pages, which are model sketches of some of the Naruto characters. There is a sneak preview for Naruto Uncut Box Set 11, which runs for roughly three and a half minutes. Next is "From Sketch to Screen," which contains eight pages of storyboards from episode 128; 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.

Next in the extras menu is a selection labeled "New From Viz Media." This link takes you to advertisements for Shonen Jump magazine, the Naruto manga, and two pages featuring other Shonen Jump manga titles. A link in the extras menu labeled as "Trailers" takes you to a set of trailers. There are trailers for Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody, Death Note, Hunter x Hunter, Buso Renkin, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2 video game, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm video game, the Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2 video game, and the Bleach: Shattered Blade video game.

If you enjoy Naruto and haven't already purchased the Naruto Uncut sets, this would be an economical way to get the episodes on DVD in order to add them to your collection. You get double the amount of the content of the original sets, but you pay about the same amount as you would have for the original Naruto Uncut DVD box sets. However, if you do purchase this set, just be aware that this is simply a repackaging of Naruto Uncut Box Set 9 and Naruto Uncut Box Set 10. All Viz Media really did to change the discs was to make minor changes to the labels on the physical discs included in the set.
