Naruto: Masashi Kishimoto has a grueling roadmap
The craft from the author of the manga, citing Bakuman, written by Tsugumi Ohba and drawn by Takeshi Obata, is a bet. You may be talented, but it is said that it reaches automatically to the pinnacle of their dreams, the success, thousands of sales and love from the fans. Be a manga artist must be, first of all, a struggle against one's own body and a fight against time. To be a mangaka is a job for many, but not all, and must always be conducted with the heart and never with the feedback statement.
The mangaka, for some (let's take the example of Eiichirō Oda – One Piece) is not even a trade. It is a style of life in which there is a zone of input in the studio and one output set. There are days in which you may come to an end before the day, but others in which all the 24 hours may not even be enough. So as the days, a mangaka can't rely on the weekend to relax because the deadlines are hell, and always more near and the authors are essentially forced to sacrifice days of rest and affection with loved ones who await them at home.
There is no difference. A mangaka who publishes on a monthly basis will have the same difficulties of an author weekly and you always have to “stay on the piece to arrive with water in the throat on the day of the terrifying deadline.
Said this, among the many authors of international renown, there is, of course, the master Masashi Kishimoto, author of Naruto.
Masashi Kishimoto has written for a long 15 years with almost weekly his work successful and to achieve the Olympus has had to sacrifice a good part of his life and inspire his forces on the history of the ninja.
Also the roadmap in the work of Kishimoto is at the limit of the impossible, for the constitution of a body of a human being. Hours of work and hours of rest have never been proportional to each other and this let imagine how much will power you need only perceive it to conduct a job eagerly awaited by fans.
With data in hand, the edition 2016 of the interview from the Jump, Ryu, has published an insert in a pamphlet dedicated to the author which explained in detail the roadmap grueling Naruto with all his hours of work and rest. The user OrganicDinosaur, accredited on the timeliness of Naruto and Boruto, spread and translated for us in the daily modus operandi of the author that is not for the faint of heart.
Here's how it has worked for 15 years for the author to succeed, every single week, he delivered his writings to the editors of Shueisha:
00:00 – 06:00: work.
06:00 – 09:00: rest.
09:00 – 13:00: work.
13:00 – 14:00: lunch break.
14:00 – 23:00: work.
23:00 – 00:00: break for dinner and bath.
22:00 – 03:00: work.
03:00 – 09:00: rest.
09:00 – 13:00: research of information and material with watching videos for inspiration in the creation of the chapter.
13:00 – 15:00: lunch break.
15:00 – 20:00: work.
20:00 – 22:00: dinner break and bathroom.
So, here's the overview of the week in the work of Kishimoto:
From Monday to Thursday, its forces are dedicated to the sketches, drafts and inking. On Friday and Saturday) to proceed with the storyboard. Sunday day of rest.
However, the specific magazine, if the storyboards were not yet concluded the day Sunday was passed to the job.
By making a summary of three macro-phases just described, most of the time Naruto was used to the design (especially the real beginning of the drafting of the chapter), then a necessary part was dedicated to the rest, the mental and the physical, and only in the remaining one narrow slice of his day was unable to eat, and to devote himself to a well-deserved swim.
Fans often say, "I want my monthly manga... To be released weekly!" But what kind of rigid and grueling schedule would it actually entail for the mangaka? Here's my translation for Kishimoto's scheduling from when he was actively serializing weekly in the WSJ for Naruto! #OMGSLEEP pic.twitter.com/3QO4w1kYci

Be a manga artist, impairs the very habits of human beings. The example is Naruto and its restricted hours of sleep that was forced brutally to strike to resume the work and meet deadlines are proof of this. Despite this the authors always give the best and give us chapters with drawings and stories incredibly accurate, therefore only this should make us readers grateful for the efforts.
