InAWorld ruled by ninjas, there are five great ninja villages. [[TheHero Naruto Uzumaki]] wants to become Hokage -- the leader and greatest ninja of the Hidden Leaf Village. There is one problem though; on the day of Naruto's birth, the village was attacked by the [[MultipleTailedBeast Nine-Tailed]] [[{{Kitsune}} Fox]], forcing the 4[[superscript:th]] Hokage to sacrifice his own life in order to seal the fox into a baby. That baby was Naruto. Now he has to deal with people after him, his team, and the rest of the world.

''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' began in 1999 as a manga written by Creator/MasashiKishimoto. Due to its immense popularity, it expanded into a multimedia franchise along with contemporary Magazine/ShonenJump series ''Manga/OnePiece'' and ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' (which fandom collectively called the ''The Big Three'', as they were the magazine's flagship series through the [=2000s=] and early [=2010s=]). The original manga concluded in November 2014, with a movie in 2015 starring Naruto's son Boruto, ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'', serving as something of an finale[[note]]It's set after the manga's epilogue chapter[[/note]]. The anime adaptation of the second half, ''Naruto Shippuden'', ended on March 23, 2017.

[[AndTheAdventureContinues But it's not over yet]]. In Spring 2016, Shounen Jump began publishing a new ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' manga drawn by Mikio Ikemoto (former assistant of Masashi Kishimoto during the publication of ''Naruto'') and written by Ukyô Kodachi (involved in the ''Boruto'' movie and the various ''LightNovel/NarutoHiden'' novels). Masashi Kishimoto himself has also released two ''Naruto Gaiden'' manga focusing on Boruto's teammates. Additionally, the anime adaptation of the ''Boruto'' manga, ''Boruto: Naruto Next Generations'', began airing in Spring 2017.

A live-action movie based on the franchise is in early development. Creator/LionsGate is planning to produce the film, and Michael Gracey is in negotiations to direct. Masashi Kishimoto is involved with the production.

'''''[[NightmareFuel NOT]]''''' to be confused with ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' and '''''DEFINITELY''''' not to be confused with a terrifying horror manga called ''Manga/{{Uzumaki}}''. ([[NightmareFuel/{{Naruto}} Then again...]]).
