Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto (Japanese NARUTO) is a Japanese manga series written and drawn by him. It follows the narrative of Naruto Uzumaki, a teenage ninja who aspires to be the Hokage, the village’s leader, and wants respect from his peers. The tale is divided into two sections, the first of which takes place during Naruto’s pre-adolescent years and the second during his adolescent years. The series is based on two one-shot manga by Kishimoto Karakuri (1995), which won Kishimoto an honorable mention in Shueisha’s monthly Hop Step Award the following year, and Naruto (1997).
From 1999 to 2014, Naruto was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shnen Jump magazine and published in tankbon (book) form in 72 volumes. The manga was converted into an anime television series by Pierrot and Aniplex, which aired 220 episodes in Japan between 2002 and 2007, with an English version airing on Cartoon Network and YTV from 2005 to 2009. Naruto Shippuden, a spin-off of the original series, began in Japan in 2007 and ran for 500 episodes until ending in 2017. From 2009 to 2011, the English version was shown on Disney XD, broadcasting the first 98 episodes, before being moved to Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block in January 2014, when it was restarted from the beginning. Adult Swim still airs the English dub on a weekly basis. Pierrot has created eleven films and twelve unique video animations in addition to the anime series (OVAs). Light novels, video games, and trading cards created by other firms are also available as Naruto goods.
Naruto was serialized in Viz Media’s digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine after the manga and anime were licensed for North American production. The anime series premiered in 2005 in the United States and Canada, then in 2006 and 2007 in the United Kingdom and Australia, respectively. Viz also published the films and most OVAs from the series, with the first feature debuting in cinemas. In December 2012, Viz Media began streaming the two anime series on their streaming service Neon Alley. Boruto Naruto Next Generations continues the Naruto tale with Naruto’s son, Boruto Uzumaki. Boruto aspires to forge his own ninja path rather than following in his father’s footsteps.
Naruto is the fourth most popular manga series in history, having sold 250 million copies in 46 countries, with 153 million copies sold in Japan alone and 97 million copies sold abroad. It has become one of Viz Media’s best-selling manga series; English translations of the volumes have often featured on the bestseller lists of USA Today and The New York Times, and the seventh book earned a Quill Award in 2006. Character development, compelling stories, and well-executed combat sequences were lauded by reviewers, however some felt the battle scenes dragged down the tale. The manga, which has a coming-of-age narrative, uses cultural elements from Japanese mythology and Confucianism, according to critics.
