    Well, sort of. You probably already know this, but what we consider for teens in America, the Japanese would consider suitable for kids.

    NGE or Ghost in the Shell? Something that is maybe not more bloody then Naruto but have much deeper plot and requires thinking.

    yeh I spose, the comic culture is more more prominent in japan, and like trigger said whats suitable for teens here is suitable for kids there, like I honestly cant see Naruto put on like CBBC (Im british) cos of like the decapitation elements and all the fighting, and people would be like 'ooh thats gonna make pl stab each other' while they overlook the massive moral values and lessons

    Also the names of Characters are kind of Childish. (I like em though) As Americans we overlook that kind of stuff, but in japan they're kinda funny. Naruto - you mean Kamaboko?
    Jiraiya, Tsunade, Orochi - Oh from the fable?
    Kankuro - the Kabuki actors?

    Well anyway, I think the easier you can relate names to things the cornier they become and as an american audience we may not see some of the name relations as easily.

    Yeah, well its made in Japan for "young boys"....but yeah, it would never be shown in the USA for young boys b/c the plot is too complex and there's too much violence, sexual undertones (or overtones, haha), etc.

    Shounen Jump's target audience is indeed young boys... But that magazine has a HUGE circulation, and many kinds of people read it... Children, teenagers, yaoi fangirls, etc. So the manga serieses in it aren't TOO young boy oriented - there's also things like mature topics or shounen ai fanservice to appeal to the different audiences reading it.... Though it's still mainly for young boys. ^^;

    Basically, Naruto's targeted to kids around 9-12.
