»» What is a Stage ««

Japanese Naruto DVDs are broken up into sets of 12 DVDs called "Stage". Each stage covers one year worth of episodes -- with around four episodes per volume, and one volume per month (matching the rate the episodes air on TV, thus the gap between the two is always the same).

The stage number ("3rd Stage", "5th Stage", etc.) shows the amount that a stage has completed and then started over again. In other words, when the 1st Stage hit 12 volumes, it changed to the 2nd Stage and then reset back to volume 1. Therefore the term stage can also be another way of saying how many years the DVDs have been releasing. For example, the 4th Stage marked the 4th year that Naruto DVDs had been in production.

Actually, the entire system that Naruto DVDs are named with can be linked to the time that they're released (with the exception of the later volumes in the the 5th Stage). Pick any volume/stage and you can know when it released. Let's take 2nd Stage, Volume 3 for example. This would be the 2nd year of releases (DVDs first began releasing in 2003, so this would mean that the 2nd Stage was released from January-December 2004), and the 3rd month of that year (March).

It might not be the most obvious naming system an anime has gotten, but it keeps things simple when you have such a high number of volumes.

»» First Press ««

Included with the first edition copies of each volume in the Naruto 3rd Stage were exclusive limited edition collectables only available in those DVDs. Each stage follows it's own theme.

The theme for the 3rd stage was a series of pocket calendars which could be collected together in a datebook or small binder. Each volume included pages for a new month in your calendar, covering April 2006 (volume 1) to March 2007 (volume 12). First press copies will typically run out around the time the next volume in the series is getting ready to hit stores. The following images are from the pocket calendar included with volume 1:
