The story of this anime takes place in Konoha, the hidden village of the Land of Fire. This is where Naruto lives. He is a little ninja who absolutely wants to become Hokage, in other words: village chief. When not following his lessons at the Ninja Academy, the Shinobi apprentice does some stupid things to attract the attention of his classmates and his teacher, Iruka-sensei.
After several episodes where you get to know the main character and his entourage, Naruto does his first mission as a ninja. It turns out that this task will be much more dangerous than expected. Fortunately, the young ninja is accompanied by his experienced instructor, Kakashi, as well as two of his classmates with whom he formed the team 7: Sasuke and Sakura.
