Viz Media described the release as:
"Naruto Set 1 contains episodes 1-27 of the anime directed by Hayato Date.
The little ninja that changed the world finally comes to Blu-ray! Journey back to a simpler time when Naruto was a little scamp pulling pranks and defacing monuments. A social outcast with the dreaded Nine-Tailed Fox Spirit locked inside of him, Naruto's infectious optimism and never-give-up attitude propel him towards the path of greatness. Relive the outrageous beginnings of a generation of ninja that would go on to become legends!"
The Naruto anime, directed by Hayato Date and produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, premiered in Japan on October 3, 2002, and concluded on February 8, 2007, after 220 episodes. The first 135 episodes were adapted from Part I of the manga; the remaining 85 episodes are original and use plot elements that are not in the manga.
