Naruto, the manga of Masashi Kishimoto, has without a doubt defined an entire generation with 15 years of serialization on Weekly Shonen Jump between glory and international success. The history of the ninja and the characters that have animated, are entered in the hearts of fans, and have created around them that personality to be recognized in real life too.

To succeed in this there was wanted only the genius of the author, but also patience, work and many years of hard work. Naruto lasted 15 years, from 1999 to 2014, but the long-lived narration, in the original plans of the japanese author, was not designed to be so durable, in fact.

Interviewed recently by the japanese newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, Masashi Kishimoto has declared a background on the end of Naruto by revealing, after some years, that his plans originally focused on a conclusion in just 15 volumes.

Don't get me wrong, in 15 volumes, are many, but for Naruto would have been really very few.

We consider that the total history counts 72 volumes (plus an extra ten chapters), and 700 chapters (710 considering the extra), and therefore the original plans have been a total failure to leave space for a narrative is much more expansive and varied, and definitely to cope with not only commercial success, but to the ever-more intriguing plot, enriched by the subplots attractive.

If Naruto had ended at the 15° volume would happen at the end of the duel between Naruto and Gaara in the first series, but everything that happened later, as they say, is history.

❸ Kishi admits that it's planned for ~10 volumes, but he also initially thought Naruto was just going to be roughly ~15 volumes... (lol~~) ❹ It'll be divided into A-Story and B-Story elements, inspired by ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘Iron Man’ story compositions

And for duty of chronicle, but also out of obligation, we recall that in the number 24 of "Weekly Shonen Jump", 13 may 2019, Masashi Kishimoto will be back with a new manga weekly called Samurai 8: Hachimaruden. The author will deal with the history, while the designs are entrusted to Akira Okubo (former assistant of Kishimoto in the serialization of Naruto). Here to find out the first details of the new work.
