It tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki , a young ninja who seeks to gain recognition from his peers and also dreams of becoming the Hokage, the leader of his village. The story is in two parts, the first set in Naruto's pre-teen years, and the second in his teens. The series is based on two one-shot manga by Kishimoto: Karakuri , which earned Kishimoto an honorable mention in Shueisha 's monthly Hop Step Award the following year, and Naruto The manga was adapted into an anime television series produced by Pierrot and Aniplex , which broadcast episodes in Japan from to ; the English adaptation of the series aired on Cartoon Network from to Naruto: Shippuden , a sequel to the original series, premiered in Japan in , and ended in , after episodes.
The English adaptation was broadcast on Disney XD from to , airing the first 98 episodes, and then switched over to Adult Swim 's Toonami programming block in January , starting over from the first episode. The English adaptation is still airing weekly on Adult Swim to this day. Besides the anime series, Pierrot has developed eleven movies and eleven original video animations OVAs. Other Naruto -related merchandise includes light novels , video games, and trading cards developed by several companies.
Viz Media licensed the manga and anime for North American production and serialized Naruto in their digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The anime series began airing in the United States and Canada in , and in the United Kingdom and Australia in and , respectively.
Viz Media began streaming the two anime series on their streaming service Neon Alley in December 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. Naruto is the fourth best-selling manga series in history, selling million copies worldwide in 35 countries.
Reviewers praised the manga's character development, strong storylines, and well-executed fight scenes, though some felt the fight scenes slowed the story down.
Critics noted that the manga, which has a coming-of-age theme, makes use of cultural references from Japanese mythology and Confucianism. In response, the leader of Konoha, the Fourth Hokage , seals the fox inside the body of his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki , making Naruto a host of the beast; [e] this costs Naruto's father his life, and the Third Hokage returns from retirement to become leader of Konoha again. Naruto is often ridiculed by the Konoha villagers for being the host of the Nine-Tails.
Because of a decree made by the Third Hokage forbidding anyone to mention these events, Naruto knows nothing about the Nine-Tails until 12 years later, when Mizuki, a renegade ninja, reveals the truth to Naruto. Naruto then defeats Mizuki in combat, earning the respect of his teacher Iruka Umino. Shortly afterwards, Naruto becomes a ninja and joins with Sasuke Uchiha , against whom he often competes, and Sakura Haruno , on whom he has a crush, to form Team 7 , under an experienced sensei , the elite ninja Kakashi Hatake.
Like all the ninja teams from every village, Team 7 completes missions requested by the villagers, ranging from doing chores and being bodyguards to performing assassinations.
During the exams, Orochimaru , a wanted criminal, invades Konoha and kills the Third Hokage for revenge. Jiraiya , one of the three legendary ninjas, declines the title of Fifth Hokage and searches with Naruto for Tsunade whom he chooses to become Fifth Hokage instead.
The story takes a turn when Sasuke leaves the Konoha village and when Tsunade finds out, she sends a group of ninja, including Naruto, to retrieve Sasuke, but Naruto is unable to persuade or force him to come back.
Naruto and Sakura do not give up on Sasuke: Naruto leaves Konoha to receive training from Jiraiya to prepare himself for the next time he encounters Sasuke, while Sakura becomes Tsunade's apprentice.
Two and a half years later, Naruto returns from his training with Jiraiya. The Akatsuki starts kidnapping the hosts of the powerful Tailed Beasts. Team 7 and other Leaf ninja fight against them and search for their teammate Sasuke. The Akatsuki succeeds in capturing and extracting seven of the Tailed Beasts, killing all the hosts except Gaara , who is now the Kazekage. Meanwhile, Sasuke betrays Orochimaru and faces Itachi to take revenge.
After Itachi dies in battle, Sasuke learns from the Akatsuki founder Tobi that Itachi received an order from Konoha's superiors to destroy his clan to prevent a coup. He accepted it on the condition that he would be allowed to spare Sasuke.
Saddened by this revelation, Sasuke joins the Akatsuki to destroy Konoha in revenge. As Konoha ninjas defeat several Akatsuki members, the Akatsuki figurehead leader, Nagato , kills Jiraiya and devastates Konoha, but Naruto defeats and redeems him, earning the village's respect and admiration. With Nagato's death, Tobi, disguised as Madara Uchiha one of Konoha's founding fathers , announces that he wants to capture all nine Tailed Beasts to perform an illusion powerful enough to control all humanity and achieve world peace.
The leaders of the five ninja villages refuse to help him and instead join forces to confront Tobi and his allies. At that time, Naruto — along with the help of Killer Bee — gains control of his Tailed Beast and the two of them head for the battlefield. During the conflict, it is revealed that Tobi is Obito Uchiha, a former teammate of Kakashi's who was thought to be dead. The real Madara saved Obito's life, and they have since collaborated.
As Sasuke learns the history of Konoha, including the circumstances that led to his clan's downfall, he decides to protect the village and rejoins Naruto and Sakura to thwart Madara and Obito's plans.
However, Madara's body ends up possessed by Kaguya Otsutsuki , an ancient princess who intends to subdue all humanity. A reformed Obito sacrifices himself to help Team 7 stop her. Once Kaguya is sealed, Madara dies as well. After the war, Kakashi becomes the Sixth Hokage and pardons Sasuke for his crimes.
Years later, Kakashi steps down while Naruto marries Hinata Hyuga and becomes the Seventh Hokage, raising the next generation. In , Shueisha released Karakuri , a one-shot manga by Masashi Kishimoto that earned an honorable mention in the Hop Step Award in Kishimoto was unsatisfied with his subsequent drafts for a follow up, and decided to work on another project.
Kishimoto originally wanted to make Naruto a child who could transform into a fox, so he created a one-shot of Naruto for the summer issue of Akamaru Jump based on the idea. By the time Naruto debuted, the background art was sparse, instead emphasizing the characters. For Part II of the manga, Kishimoto tried to keep the panel layouts and the plot easy for the reader to follow, and avoid "overdo[ing] the typical manga style".
Kishimoto wanted each member to have a high level of aptitude in one skill and be talentless in another. Kishimoto made use of the Chinese zodiac tradition, which had a long-standing presence in Japan; the zodiac hand signs originate from this. The idea of the setting came to him "pretty spontaneously without much thought," but admits that the scenery became based on his home in the Japanese prefecture of Okayama prefecture. Since the storyline does not specify when it is set, he was able to include modern elements in the series such as convenience stores.
When serialization began, Kishimoto decided the ending would feature a fight between two characters: Naruto and Sasuke,  That villain Nagato, also known as Pain, and the arc that was the important according to Kishimoto was the Pain Invasion Arc. This arc paved the way for the ending of Naruto to occur. Having Naruto fight a villain that he could not answer to about war until Naruto has experienced it for himself was the only way to go. And so, Nagato or Pain had Naruto experience having lost his mentor Jiraiya and being unable to forgive an enemy as Naruto always has done in the past.
It was a developing point for Naruto as he finally could not answer something he had never experienced, and that was war. Kishimoto knew from then on that he would have to create the Fourth Great Shinobi War so Naruto could experience it and end the series after the end of the war. These events end with Naruto forgiving Sasuke as he had forgiven Nagato. This decision annoyed his wife because she wanted Naruto to marry Sakura Haruno,  but Kishimoto viewed Sakura as Naruto's friend and teammate, rather than a future wife.
When Hinata first appeared, Kishimoto thought of forming a love triangle among the three characters, but because he decided that fighting was the main focus of the manga, there was little room for romantic plotlines. However, Kishimoto clarified shortly afterwards that the length would be bigger.
The first chapters are Part I and constitute the first section of the Naruto storyline. Chapters to include a gaiden side-story focusing on Kakashi Hatake's background.
The remaining chapters to belong to Part II, which continues the story after a two-and-a-half year gap in the internal timeline.
