chapters (Part I) A powerful fox known as the Nine-Tails attacks Konoha, the hidden leaf village in the Land of Fire, one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries in the Ninja
Ninja
World. In response, the leader of Konoha, the Fourth Hokage, seals the fox inside the body of his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki, making Naruto
Naruto
a host of the beast;[d] this costs Naruto's father his life, and the Third Hokage returns from retirement to become leader of Konoha again. Naruto
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
Naruto
knows nothing about the Nine-Tails until 12 years later, when Mizuki, a renegade ninja, reveals the truth to Naruto. Naruto
Naruto
then defeats Mizuki in combat, earning the respect of his teacher Iruka Umino.[e] Shortly afterwards, Naruto
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. After several missions, including a major one in the Land of Waves, Kakashi allows Team 7 to take a ninja exam, enabling them to advance to a higher rank and take on more difficult missions, known as Chunin Exams . 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
Naruto
for Tsunade whom he chooses to become Fifth Hokage instead. During the search, it is revealed that Orochimaru wishes to train Sasuke because of his powerful genetic heritage, the Sharingan.[f] After Sasuke attempts and fails to kill his older brother Itachi[g] when he showed up in Konoha to kidnap Naruto, he joins Orochimaru, hoping to gain from him the strength needed to kill Itachi. 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
Naruto
is unable to persuade or force him to come back. Naruto
Naruto
and Sakura do not give up on Sasuke: Naruto

Naruto
returns from his training with Jiraiya. The Akatsuki starts kidnapping the hosts of the powerful Tailed Beasts. Team 7 (and other 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
Gaara
(the host of the One-Tail) who is resurrected by an Elder of the Sand village (of which he is the new Kage) at the cost of her life. 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 rebellion. He accepted it on the condition that he would be allowed to leave Sasuke alive. Saddened by this revelation, Sasuke joins the Akatsuki to kill Konoha's superiors and destroy Konoha in revenge. As Konoha ninjas defeat several Akatsuki members, the Akatsuki figurehead leader, Nagato, kills Jiraiya
Jiraiya
and devastates Konoha, but Naruto
Naruto
defeats and redeems him, earning the village's respect and admiration. With Nagato's eventual death, Tobi, disguised as Madara Uchiha
Madara Uchiha
(one of Konoha's founding fathers), announces that he wants to get all nine Tailed Beasts to perform an illusion powerful enough to control all humanity, to create world peace. The leaders of the five ninja villages refuse to help him and instead join forces to confront Tobi and his allies. That decision results in a fourth great ninja war between the combined armies of the Five Great Countries (known as the Allied Shinobi Forces) and Akatsuki's forces of zombie-like ninjas. The Five Kage tries to keep Naruto, unaware of the war, in a secret island turtle near Kumogakure (Hidden Cloud Village), but Naruto
Naruto
finds out and escapes from the island with Killer Bee, the host of the Eight-Tails. At that time, Naruto
Naruto
along with the help of Killer Bee gains control on is 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
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. Sasuke takes advantage of the situation and takes control of all the Tailed Beasts, as he reveals his goal of ending the current village system. Naruto
Naruto
confronts Sasuke to dissuade him from his plan, and after they almost kill each other in a final battle, Sasuke admits defeat and reforms. After the war, Kakashi becomes the Sixth Hokage and pardons Sasuke for his crimes. Years later, Kakashi steps down while Naruto
Naruto
marries Hinata Hyuga
Hinata Hyuga
and becomes the Seventh Hokage, raising the next generation. Production Development In 1995, Shueisha
Shueisha
released Karakuri, a one-shot manga by Masashi Kishimoto that earned an honorable mention in the Hop Step Award in 1996. Kishimoto was unsatisfied with his subsequent drafts for a follow up, and decided to work on another project.[2] The new project was originally going to feature Naruto
Naruto
as a chef, but this version never made it to print. Kishimoto originally wanted to make Naruto
Naruto
a child who could transform into a fox, so he created a one-shot of Naruto
Naruto
for the summer 1997 issue of Akamaru Jump
Akamaru Jump
based on the idea.[3][4] Despite the positive feedback it received in a readers' poll, Kishimoto was unhappy with the art and the story, so he rewrote it as a story about ninjas.[5] The first eight chapters of Naruto
Naruto
were planned before it appeared in Weekly Shōnen Jump, and these chapters originally devoted many panels of intricate art to illustrating the Konoha village. By the time Naruto
Naruto
debuted, the background art was sparse, instead emphasizing the characters.[5] Though Kishimoto had concerns that chakra (the energy source used by the ninjas in Naruto) made the series too Japanese, he still believed it is an enjoyable read.[6] Kishimoto is a fan of Godzilla, and the tailed beasts mythology was introduced because Kishimoto wanted an excuse to draw monsters.[7] He has said that the central theme in Part I of Naruto
Naruto
is how people accept each other, citing Naruto's development across the series as an example.[8] 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".[9] He considers that his drawing style has changed from "the classic manga look to something a bit more realistic."[9] Because of wishing to end the arc involving Sasuke Uchiha search for his brother, Itachi, in a single volume, Kishimoto decided that volume 43 should include more chapters than regular volumes. As a result, Kishimoto apologized to readers for this since volume 43 was more expensive than regular volumes.[10] Characters Main article: List of Naruto
List of Naruto
characters When he created Naruto, Kishimoto looked to other shōnen manga as influences for his work and tried to make his characters unique, while basing the story on Japanese culture.[11] The separation of the characters into different teams was intended to give each group a particular flavor. Kishimoto wanted each member to have a high level of aptitude in one skill and be talentless in another.[12] He found it difficult to write about romance, but emphasized it more in Part II of the manga, beginning with volume 28.[8] He introduced villains into the story to have them act as a counterpoint to his characters' moral values and clearly illustrate their differences.[13] As a result of how the younger characters were significantly weaker than the villains, Kishimoto made the timeskip in order to have them age and become stronger during this time.[14] Setting Main article: Ninja
Ninja
World Kishimoto made use of the Chinese zodiac tradition, which had a long-standing presence in Japan; the zodiac hand signs originate from this.[6] When Kishimoto was creating the primary setting of the Naruto manga, he concentrated initially on the designs for the village of Konoha. 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.[15] He considered including automobiles, planes and simple computers, but excluded projectile weapons and vehicles from the plot.[15][16] Conclusion When serialization began, Kishimoto decided the ending would feature a fight between two characters: Naruto
Naruto
and Sasuke,[17] which would end with Naruto
Naruto
forgiving Sasuke as he had forgiven Nagato. Kishimoto chose Hinata Hyuga
Hinata Hyuga
as Naruto's romantic partner from the early stages of the manga, since Hinata had always respected and admired Naruto even before the series' beginning, and Kishimoto felt this meant the two of them could build a relationship. This decision annoyed his wife because she wanted Naruto
Naruto
to marry Sakura Haruno,[18] 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.[19][20] Media See also: List of Naruto

Asahi Shimbun
announced that Naruto
Naruto
was one of nine nominees for the nineteenth annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize,[184] and the following month Kishimoto was the winner of Rookie of the Year for the series in the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs
Agency for Cultural Affairs
2014 Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology Fine Arts Recommendation Awards.[185] Responding to Naruto's success, Kishimoto said in Naruto
Naruto
Collector Winter 2007/2008 that he was "very glad that the American audience has accepted and understood ninja. It shows that the American audience has good taste [...] because it means they can accept something previously unfamiliar to them."[186] Naruto
Naruto
Shippuden has been ranked several times as one of the most watched series in Japan.[187][188] The first DVD compilation released by Viz received a nomination from the American Anime
Anime
Awards for best package design.[189] Reception Manga Several reviewers commented on the balance between fight scenes and plot development; A. E. Sparrow of IGN
IGN
and Casey Brienza of Anime
Anime
News Network (ANN) felt that the result was a strong storyline,[190][191] but Carl Kimlinger, also writing for ANN, suggested that there were too many fights, which slowed down the plot.[192] Kimlinger liked the character designs, and approved of the fight scenes themselves[192] which also drew positive comments from Rik Spanjers, who felt that the excitement of the scenes depends on Kishimoto's skill in depicting action.[192] Javier Lugo, writing for Manga
Manga
Life, agreed, describing the artwork as "dramatic, exciting, and just right for the story he's telling".[193] The anime and manga magazine Neo described Naruto's character as "irksome", but considered that the series' "almost sickening addictiveness" was due to the quality of the characterization,[194] and in Briana Lawrence's opinion the growth of the characters gave Part II an adult feel.[195] In a review of volume 28 Brienza also praised Part II's storyline and characterization, though she commented that not every volume reached a high level of quality.[190] Gō Itō, a professor in the manga department of Tokyo Polytechnic University, compared the series' development to the manga of Dragon Ball, saying that both manga present good illustrations of three-dimensional body movements that capture the characters' martial arts very well. Gō felt readers could empathize with the characters in Naruto
Naruto
via their inner monologue during battles.[196] The series also influenced the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
with director Edgar Wright
Edgar Wright
saying he was inspired by how whenever there is a "killer move" in the manga, there is an impact in the background following any technique's usage.[197] There is an internet meme known as " Naruto
Naruto
run" based on the way the characters run leaning forward with their arms behind their backs. In September 2017, students from the University of the Philippines
Philippines
Los Baños Perspective started covering publications of students running like Naruto
Naruto
characters.[198] When the manga ended, multiple authors from the magazine expressed congratulations to Kishimoto's work.[199] Anime The Naruto
Naruto
anime was listed as the 38th best animated show in IGN's Top 100 Animated Series.[200] In September 2005, Japanese television network TV Asahi
TV Asahi
broadcast a popularity poll based on a nationwide survey in which Naruto
Naruto
placed 17th.[201] Mike Hale of The New York Times described the series as much better than American animation aimed at children,[202] but the animation received some criticism from both the T.H.E.M. Anime
Anime
Reviews critics: Christina Carpenter felt Kishimoto's artistic style translated poorly into animation,[203] and Derrick Tucker was also negative, though he felt that at their best, the depictions "[left] little to be desired".[204] As with the manga, some reviewers, such as Martin Theron of ANN, along with Tucker, felt there were too many fight scenes,[204][205] though Justin Rich argued that the fight scenes were the most important and enjoyable element of the show.[206] Carpenter also commented positively on the characters, though she felt that most were fairly stereotypical.[203] Naruto: Shippuden was well-reviewed by Activeanime's David C. Jones who commented that the animation had improved.[207] ANN noted that the series has a more serious tone and a better balance between comedy and drama than the first anime series; with more interesting digressions from the main plot.[208][209] Although the pacing for the first episodes was criticised as slow, the delivery and development of the interactions between the characters received positive comments.[210][211] Writing for the Los Angeles Times, Charles Solomon ranked Shippuden the third best anime on his "Top 10".[212] Themes Amy Plumb argues that Kishimoto's use of references to Japanese mythology in Naruto
Naruto
are intended to add further layers to the story. Kishimoto expects his readers to decode the references, which allows him to avoid direct explanations. One example is Itachi, who has three ninja techniques named after Shinto deities: Tsukiyomi, Amaterasu, and Susano-o. Plumb also cites Sasuke's clan's heraldic symbol, a fan known as an uchiwa. These fans are used in Japanese myths to exorcise evil, by blowing it away; Sasuke discovers late in the series that he has the ability to "blow away" the influence of the Nine-Tailed Fox on Naruto. Foxes (kitsune tsuki) are tricksters in Japanese mythology, and in some stories they take over human bodies; Plumb comments on the obvious similarities to the Nine-Tail sealed in Naruto, and the pranks Naruto
Naruto
plays.[213] Christopher A. Born notes that the Naruto
Naruto
storyline contains traditional Confucian values, and suggests that students who analyse manga such as Naruto
Naruto
and Bleach
Bleach
will learn more about Confucianism than they would from studying its abstract ideas.[214] Norman Melchor Robles Jr. evaluated the portrayal of both positive and negative ideas in Naruto
Naruto
by counting words in the script which were associated with either violence or positive values; he found that a small majority of tagged words were violent, but commented that the portrayal of violence seemed organized to show how positive strategies on the part of the protagonists could overcome the violence.[215] Sheuo Hui Gan considers the series to have a set of "traditional ethical values." She also compares the treatment of alienation in Naruto, which Naruto overcomes by joining his society, to the portrayal of alienation in Akira and Neon Genesis Evangelion, where the main characters remain alienated.[216] Naruto
Naruto
has been described by several critics as a coming-of-age story.[217][218][219] Psychologist Lawrence C. Rubin suggests that the storylines would appeal to readers of any age who have lost loved ones, or are having difficulty finding friends, or who are in other situations shown in the series.[217] In Yukari Fujimoto's view, as the characters mature, they show respect to the adults who have raised and taught them, making it a conservative storyline in comparison to other manga of the same time period such as One Piece
One Piece
and Air Gear.[218] Rik Spanjers sees the difference between Sasuke (a loner) and Naruto
Naruto
(an optimist) as tragic, arguing that the contrast between the two protagonists' approach to the world is fundamental to the plot: "Naruto’s strength grows as he gains more loved ones to protect, while Sasuke remains alone and is increasingly absorbed by his quest for revenge".[219] Omote Tomoyuki points out that there are many comic moments in the story despite the difficulties Naruto
Naruto
finds himself in, but the comic elements diminish dramatically over time as Naruto
Naruto
grows into a teenager, particularly once Part II begins. Shōnen Jump began to carry comedies such as Gintama and Reborn!
Reborn!
from 2003 onwards, and in Tomoyuki's view this is part of the reason for the change in emphasis: Naruto
Naruto
"was not supposed to provide laughter anymore".[220] Fujimoto argues that the story has overly traditional gender roles, noting "[...] its representations suggest that men are men and women are women and that they differ naturally regarding aptitude and vocation". For example, the girls initially outperform the boys in the Ninja
Ninja
Academy, but "once the boys get serious, the girls cannot keep pace". Fujimoto points out that this does not upset Sakura, who is now surpassed by Naruto. Character development based on female roles, when it does occur, again uses stereotypical roles: Tsunade, for example, a middle-aged woman with large breasts, is a clear mother figure, and when she teaches Sakura to be a medical ninja, which requires special skills possessed only by women, the story reinforces the idea that women only belong on the battlefield as healers. Tsunade herself, who is a figure of authority in Naruto, is portrayed as ridiculous in a way that men in the same position are not. Fujimoto suggests this presentation of women may explain why the female characters are often the most disliked characters among readers of the manga.[221] Notes
