Tangle x Cast 12: Walking by Faith Through the Chunin Exams

The arc that properly introduced us to the amazing cast of Naruto characters is still a great watch today, and not just because of its action and humor. The “Chunin Exams” arc of Naruto is filled with inspirational stories and even further, models of how one should be living out a life of faith. Paris, Tyler, and Mike leap into action this week as they chat about faith and their favorite ninjas (and play a couple of ninja games while they’re at it, too). Believe it!
