Naruto Comes to an End
After 15 years, it’s all coming to an end.
The chronicles of of Konoha’s most famous ninja are going to conclude this November, as the run of Naruto performs its last jitsu. Viz Media made the announcement on their website.
Masashi Kishimoto’s story, of the kid with a demon fox sealed into him, has been a huge success. Naruto has made the jump across the Pacific with the same impact that Cowboy Bebop had. There’s something about a kid who doesn’t give up that’s inspiring. It doesn’t matter what age, race, religion, or sex you are, the message in Naruto speaks to everyone. The fundamentals of taking care of your family and friends, working as a team, and that failing at something isn’t always a bad thing, are lessons that keep readers going; as well as bringing in new fans. They’re themes that we’ve seen Naruto and Team 7 tackle all through their story.
It’s that history of the ninja world that gives Naruto a whovian flavour. There is more than a decade worth of lore that fans can pull from. Fans of Naruto have seen him grow up, experience loss and success, friendship and heartbreak. It will be great to see how Kishimoto finishes the story. However, just because the manga is finishing, it doesn’t mean that it all ends in November.
The animated series will still continue until the they catch up with the series end, and the last Naruto movie is scheduled to be released December 6th, 2014.
The last issue of Naruto will be released on November 10th, 2014.
