My workspace got completely pimped up and it makes me feel really happy 🙂 After spending a bit over 4 years at Automattic, I received a gift in a form of a W laptop and it’s absolutely fantastic!
And on top of that, I received two figurines as a birthday present from my brother. These aren’t Son Goku or dragon figurines this time. These are Naruto and Pain, from the Naruto anime – in my opinion, easily one of the top 3 TV shows ever made.
The figurines depict one of the most legendary battles ever created. The first time I started watching the battle, I thought I’d just watch a couple of episodes while I was grabbing lunch. Fast forward, it’s way past midnight and I’m still in front of the TV. Yes, it was that addictive!
If you are reluctant to watch Naruto, don’t be. It’s an incredible anime, with fantastic plot twists, and character depth. I have yet to discover another TV show as complex as this one. The biggest downside, though, is that it has around 700 episodes 😬 However, given the current state the world is in, it’s even better that Naruto has this many episodes 🙂
