Naruto Uncut Season Three Volume 2

The Naruto Uncut Season Three Volume 2 box set is a six DVD set that contains episodes 136 through 163 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 four episodes, the fifth disc contains five episodes, and the sixth disc contains five episodes and bonus features.

The episodes in this set include the mission to the Land of Rice Paddies, the Mizuki Strikes Back arc, the search for the Bikochu bug arc, the Raiga arc, the Great Survival Challenge, the arc about the bounty hunter, the story about imposters coming to the Leaf Village, and a search for "The Cursed Warrior."

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 11 and Naruto Uncut Box Set 12 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 12, which runs for roughly four minutes. Next is "From Sketch to Screen," which contains eight pages of storyboards from episode 137; 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 "DVD Trailers" takes you to a set of trailers. There are trailers for: Bleach The Movie: Memories of Nobody, Death Note, Hunter x Hunter, and Buso Renkin. The final link in the extras menu is labeled as "Game Trailers," and it has trailers for: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2, Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2, and Bleach: Shattered Blade.

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 13, which runs for roughly three and a half minutes. Next is "From Sketch to Screen," which contains eight pages of storyboards from episode 150; 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.

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 11 and Naruto Uncut Box Set 12. 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.
