The series is fine enough, but the sister series on GameCube is one of my favorite game series ever. I could take or leave the Naruto license, the games are just plain fun and engaging fighters. W/ Ultimate Ninja games, they always seemed they wouldn't hold up w/out the license.

I watched the show because of the GameCube fighting games, with some internet friends playing an import of GNT3 in a hotel room at an anime convention I went to. Got hooked on it and the Naruto franchise. I'd go to cons and participate on small tournaments they'd hold...super fun

What's this have to do with Ultimate Ninja? Well, I played it around the same time and it didn't really grab me as much. Felt shallow compared to GNT games. I kept trying to find folks to play with, playing at con tournaments, discovered Willvolution, etc..

And the GNT scene was always slim but it dried up completely by the time the games were localized as Clash of Ninja. After a couple years I was elated to see my local con was holding a Clash if Ninja tournament like old times! I went to the con specifically to play it..
