Franchise / Naruto

In a World ruled by ninjas, there are five great villages. Naruto Uzumaki wants to be the Hokage — the leader and greatest ninja in his village. There is one problem though. On the day of his birth, his village was attacked by the Nine-Tailed Fox. Giving up his life, the 4th Hokage sealed 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.

Naruto began in 1999 as a manga written by Masashi Kishimoto, but due to its immense popularity, it has expanded into a multimedia franchise. The manga concluded in November 2014, with a movie, The Last: Naruto the Movie serving as something of an epilogue.note 

But it's not over yet. In Spring 2016, Shounen Jump began publishing a new 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 Naruto Hiden novels). Masashi Kishimoto himself has also released two Naruto Gaiden manga focusing on Boruto's teammates: a mini-series featuring Sarada Uchiha, and a one-shot focused around Mitsuki.

A live-action movie based on the franchise is in early development. Lions Gate is planning to produce the film, and Michael Gracey is in negotiations to direct.

NOT to be confused with Narutaru and DEFINITELY not to be confused with a terrifying horror manga called Uzumaki. (Then again...).
