Naruto is a Japanese manga series composed and brought to life by Masashi Kishimoto. It recounts the tale of Naruto Uzumaki, a youthful ninja who looks for acknowledgment from his companions and fantasies about turning into the Hokage, the head of his town. The story is told in two sections – the main set in Naruto’s pre-youngster years, and the second in his teenagers. The series depends on two one shot manga by Kishimoto: Karakuri (1995), which procured Kishimoto a decent notice in Shueisha’s month to month Jump Step Grant the next year, and Naruto (1997).

Naruto was serialized in Shueisha’s magazine, Week by week Shōnen Bounce from 1999 to 2014, and delivered in tankōbon structure in 72 volumes. The manga was adjusted into an anime TV series delivered by Pierrot and Aniplex, which broadcast 220 episodes in Japan from 2002 to 2007; the English name of the series circulated on Animation Organization and YTV from 2005 to 2009. Naruto: Shippuden, a continuation of the first series, debuted in Japan in 2007, and finished in 2017, after 500 episodes. Other than the anime series, Pierrot has created eleven anime films and twelve OVAs. Other Naruto-related stock incorporates light books, computer games, and exchanging cards created by a few organizations.
