Well, because of its compelling storytelling, on-point plot, mature character development, and many other factors. Naruto is also famous for its character and the backstory of these characters. One such character was the Third Hokage, usually called Sarutobi Sensei. He was the father of Asuma and grandpa of Konohamaru.

Konohagakure’s Third Hokage was Hiruzen Sarutobi. Hiruzen was a great ninja revered as a “Shinobi who knows all the jutsu of Konoha” and the teacher of the preceding two Hokage of the village. Thousands of Konoha shinobi profited from his knowledge during his lifespan, despite the fact that he was merely directly the instructor of the Sannin.

Hiruzen firmly believes in the Will of Fire, which asserts that everyone in Konoha is a member of one big family and also that the Hokage is in charge of making sure that the family is happy. All through his reign, Hiruzen upholds the Will of Fire by being accessible to Konoha’s residents and shinobi in times of need, making choices that benefit the most significant number of people, and offering his knowledge and counsel every time he can.
