Introducing characters from Naruto the anime series in Sign Language. ナルトのキャラクター紹介です手話でアニメ.

Talking about Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi, Zabuza, Haku, the meanings of their names and their special abilities.

Captioned transcript: 

Hi it’s me Danny, here is my “Sign Name” is ASL and in JSL.

I’d like to talk to you about ANIME. You know Japanese cartoon animations.

Growing up I loved an watched many different Anime, like DRAGON BALL.

I’ll focus on a 10 year old Anime called “NARUTO”

Do you know it? Naruto is a young boy who always uses this Jutsu.

The meaning of his name is like the pink swirl on White fish cake (Kamaboko) in Ramen. It means “Whirlpool”.

Naruto’s special “Jutsu” is “Kage Bunshin no Jutsu”. He makes mass multiple clones of himself. 

Naruto’s rival is Sasuke. He always acts bored or cool. 

He is incredibly skilled in fighting and his specialty is “Katon Goukakyuu no Jutsu”. 

Blowing fire from his mouth.

This girl’s name is Sakura, she has pink hair.

Her name means Japanese Cherry Blossom (which grows in Spring).

This is my Sign Name for her. If you can thing of a better one let me know. 

The teacher for, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura’s is Kakashi.

Here’s my Sign name for him.

Kakashi means…  

The thing on farms, to prevent crows from stealing food…  

“Scare Crows”

Kakashi has an incredible power in his left eye. It’s called “Sharingan” and the eye is red.

He can copy other Ninjutsu powers.

His enemy, Zabuza.

He is bad and is known as the Demon Ninja. 

Here’s my Sign name for him. 

He has a massive wide sword used for attacking.

His specialty is creating Mist, thick and foggy with his Jutsu.

You can't see him. He can disappear and you don't know where he will reappear from within the Mist.  

Zabuza’s partner is a young boy name Haku.

It means white. His soul maybe clean, white, innocent or pure. So this maybe why his name is Haku.

His specialty is really interesting. I wont tell you now… I’ll hold off on that till later.

His weapons are throwing Needles, used to stab his enemies during fights. 

Later, I’ll show you some fight scenes. 

If you have any good “Sign Names” for any characters like Sasuke, Sakura, Zabuza or any others please let me know. 

Teach me your Sign Names of the characters, if it’s good, I’d like to copy it. 

More exciting and amazing fight scenes to come!
