An Hungarian Web animation series created using Movie Maker and Ms Paint, by Dani Fekete. The videos can be found at Naruto-kun.hu and YouTube, which also has several episodes subtitled in English. The series is basically an Affectionate Parody of Naruto, that follows the life of the villainous organisation Akatsuki, but contains countless references to several completely random works. Some episodes are also parodies of well known movies. The plot sticks loosely to the original Naruto story line (from Akatsuki's perspective of course) and is of a generally Lighter and Softer tone.Now with a character sheet.This work provides examples of the following tropes:
Affectionate Parody: of Naruto of course. But there are several other works getting parodied as well.
All Just a Dream: Two instances in the movie. First it's played with in a scene involving Sasori and a talking pimple. The second happens at the end when Orochimaru destroys the HQ. He dreams it while getting the beating of a lifetime from Itachi.
The end of episode 29: after Itachi dies, it's revealed that everything starting with Kakuzu's death was Itachi's dream and all dead characters are still alive. Then a disclaimer shows up saying: "Of course this is all a what if scenario. This is what really happened" - cut back to Itachi dieing.
Animation Bump: episode 27 has a surprisingly higher frame rate than previous episodes.
Art Evolution: Compared to other similar series, this one started off at a fairly hight quality, and progressively got better with each susequent episode. Starting around the Hangover-arc, the series has reached a level in both artwork and animation quality, that can be compared only to made-for-TV animation series.
Bizarro Episode: Episode 20 starts with everyone waking up with a hangover after a getting stoned from smoking Zetsu. It appears Pein has slept with Hidan, Kisame is white, Elton and Leo have become humans, Nagato turned into a frat boy, Itachi lost his ear, Konan grew a tail, a Balrog is sitting on the toilet, and a pair of 'liberalist rainbow bunnies' are doing it in the yard.
This is later implied to be a hoax, as the 'white' Kisame turns out to be Greed.
Brick Joke: At the beginning of episode 20, Hidan mentions he had a dream involving "liberalist rainbow bunnies". At the end of the episode, they're in the yard.
In episode 24, Hidan is blown up and buried. In episode 27, a Cutaway Gag has him climb out of the hole just in time to be hit by one of Deidara's bombs.
Since the third intro, the opening credits for each episode feature several random cameos, as part of a contest: the first four people to identify all 12 of them would get their own cameo in episode 29.
Raziel shows up challenging Pein for a duel, mistaking him for Cain. He's blasted away by one of Pain's shockwaves, and is never mentioned again.
The thing with a moving puppet-Nagato and puppet-Konan, Nagato built in The Movie as a present for Konan, appear much later when they hook up together again.
In Episode 30 when Tobi runs into the Eight man squad searching for Itachi and Sasuke, Naruto asks Yamato whether Tobi was the same guy whom he helped to defeat the Half-Headed Dragon. Yamato dismissed the idea, because "that guy wore a scarf"
Dream Within a Dream: Sasori falls asleap in a dance club and has a dream involving a talking pimple. He wakes up, releaved that it was only a dream. Then the talking pimple shows up again, and he wakes up in the club, releaved, and remarking that this was a very tricky dream. Then the talking pimple shows up AGAIN, and he wakes up in cold sweat (for real this time).
Follow the Leader: Dante-C was inspired to create the show by Omnistrife's "Fun With Akatsuki", although the only similarity between the two shows, is that they're both about Akatsuki. In turn "An Akatsuki's Life" spawned numerous hungarian anime parody series, including Hebis Barmok ("Assholes from Hebi") and Espada Club (''Bleach parody).
"Freaky Friday" Flip: A three episode arc has an accident involving "misfortune cookies" has this happen to everyone, except Zetsu and Yoropiko (who only switch sides) and Leo and Elton, who (being ghosts and all) simply switch places.
Homage: The episode '8 meters' is an homage to '8 Mile'. It even features a parody of Eminem's The Real Slim Shady.
Episode 10 is both an Homage to the Hungarian Folktales animated series, and a parody of folktales in general.
Macho Camp: Kakuzu gets locked up under unknown circumstances. His cellmate is a mucle-bound hairy thug dressed like Bubbles
Medium Blending: When Sasuke uses his Sharingan in episode 29, the entire scene is rendered in 3D.
The Movie: More like 3 or 4 consecutive episodes without the title sequences, but are more closely tied together than other arcs.
Running Gag: Deidara's hands causing damage in the Akatsuki mansion, which then he has to repair. Subverted in the first episode when it was Kisame who detonated a bomb, and then framed Dei' for it. Also on two occasions Leonidas (the right hand) caused damage indirectly, without using explosives: in his introductary episode he molested Konan, who then slammed Deidara to a wall so hard, the ceiling collapsed, and a second time as a ghost, when he made a bet with a drugged Hidan if he could pass through walls as easily as he can. Hidan broke out the wall he tried to pass through.
The latest few episodes has Tobi's wigs which are all borrowed from character from other works, in order of appearence: Mézga Géza, and Pom-pom the main characters of two different Hungarian animation series, Marge Simpson and Shaak Ti or at least a togruta.
Shout-Out: Way too many to list but some deserve a special mention.
Hanzo's speech is a direct reference to former Hungarian prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsany.
Kisame and Sasori behave a lot like Scooby-Doo and Shaggy in the episode with a sleepwalking Kakuzu.
Spell My Name with an S: The never ending mistranslation of Senju Hashirama's name is cruelly parodied as it's pronounced by evey character completely differently every single time it comes up. Variations so far include the oftly used mistranslations from Real Life like "Harashimara", and a Hurricane of Puns such as "Hátizsák"(-ra) "Házisárkány"(-ra) (backpack and house dragon respectively, with "-ra" being a hungarian suffix) and "Hasisrama" (margarine with hashis).
The "Pain" vs "Pein" debate is lampshaded with Pein's t-shirt having the "a" crossed out, and an "e" written above it.
The Unreveal: In Episode 20, Tobi is found with only a paperbag on his head. Hidan pulls off the bag, revealing the singer of an Hungarian band. Then the real Tobi shows up still wearing his mask... with slight modifications.
Weaksauce Weakness: While in his true form, Orochimaru's big weakness is apparently a white hood.
