There’s a lot to be said for both the English and Japanese voice casts. The English dub does a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the original Japanese version, with some exceptions.
The biggest problem with watching Naruto in English is that there are some episodes that have been censored in order to pass them through TV censors. These episodes are no longer available on legal streaming sites, so your only option if you want to see them uncensored is to download them illegally. This is why I recommend using a VPN for all of your streaming needs, as it’s completely free and will also protect your privacy online.
The Japanese voice actors are often better at portraying their characters’ emotions than their American counterparts — especially when it comes to screaming or yelling. In fact, some of these scenes would be impossible without subtitles because they’re so over-the-top and exaggerated that they would be lost in translation otherwise!
