Naruto (ナルト) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto. The series is based on two one-shot manga by Kishimoto. The first one, titled Karakuri, released in 1995 by Shueisha and earned Kishimoto an honorable mention in Shueisha's monthly Hop Step Award in 1996. The second one, titled Naruto, published in the summer 1997 issue of Akamaru Jump.

Naruto was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from September 21, 1999, to November 10, 2014. Seventy-two tankōbon volumes were released. It currently is the third best-selling manga series in history, selling more than 220 million copies worldwide. The manga later adapted into a television anime produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002, and ended on February 8, 2007 with 220 episodes. The English adaptation of the series premiered on Cartoon Network's programming block named Toonami on September 10, 2005, and concluded on January 31, 2009. Naruto: Shippuden, a sequel to the original series, aired from February 15, 2007, to March 23, 2017 with 500 episodes. The English adaptation was broadcast on Disney XD from October 28, 2009, to November 5, 2011, and on Adult Swim's Toonami block in January 2014. Besides the anime series, Studio Pierrot has developed eleven movies and several original video animations (OVAs). Other types of merchandise include light novels, video games, and trading cards developed by several companies.

Viz Media has licensed the manga and anime for North American production. Viz serialized Naruto in their digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, publishing the individual volumes. The anime series began airing in the United States and Canada in 2005, and in the United Kingdom and Australia in 2006 and 2007, respectively. The films and most OVAs from the series have also released by Viz, with the first film premiering in movie theaters. Viz Media began streaming the two anime series on their streaming service Neon Alley in December 2012. The story of Naruto continues with Naruto's son, Boruto Uzumaki, in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Boruto wishes to create his own ninja way instead of following his father's.

Plot Edit

Many years ago, in the hidden village of Konoha, lived a great demon fox. When it swung one of it's nine tails, a tsunami occurred. The fourth hokage sealed this demon fox inside a boy in exchange for his own life. Naruto was that boy, and he grew up with no family, and the villagers hated him thinking that he himself was the demon fox. Naruto's dream is to become Hokage, and have the villagers acknowledge him.
