How to Watch the Naruto Series and Movies in Order

Blood Prison contains several continuity inconsistencies that make it difficult to place in the timeline. It isn't directly based on the original manga series, however, so some fans don't consider it canon. Additionally, Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals only shares some characters with the main series and is optional in a chronological watch. Boruto: Naruto the Movie is also optional since its main plot points also appear in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.

How to Watch Naruto in Release Order

To re-create the fan experience of watching everything as it came out, follow this order. You won't see much difference from the chronological list, but you will move between some series that ran simultaneously. This list uses the original Japanese release dates, because Naruto didn't always make it to the US on a regular schedule.
