Something about naruto just attracts blacks. I don't know what the appeal is. I can kind of understand DBZ since all they do is fight and fuck (it's implied). And Vegeta is a deadbeat dad.
The main character is a young man who grew up without a father (or mother for that matter). He also ends most sentences with 'you know,' which for blacks is both what they say in sentences and mirrors how they suffix theirs with "na'ah mean?"
Unlike most animes, this one is all being being loyal to your homies in the hood (Hidden Leaf Village). While at the same time everyone all wants to be the bossman/king (Hokage).
Let's not forget the great homage to black culture that is Killer Bee.

Asian martial arts has always appealed to blacks. Gen Xers worshipped Bruce Lee and Kung Fu movies and liking fighting games and anime is an extension of that.
It appeals to their innate sense of structure. Being told their purpose is their duty, to keep their life within those bounds, and not let aspirations or distractions stay them from their focus on physical skill.
There used to be something like that in this country for a long time.
I wonder what happened to that peculiar institution?
