Exploring Naruto

Naruto is a shounen manga series that is written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto - an action series set in a world of ninjas where they fight using different jutsu(techniques). The entire series consists of 3 different titles: Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, and the current sequel Borut: Naruto Next Generations. 

The story follows Naruto, a young ninja who seeks acknowledgment and recognition from others as he dreams of becoming a Hokage. However, he has a tough childhood life because of the nine-tailed monster(Kyuubi) residing in him that scares the citizens of Konoha village. But with the people who accepted him and decided to support him despite his dark upbringing, he keeps on following his dream as he works hard. 

Together with his peers in team 7, Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno, and their mentor Hatake Kakashi, they will face various challenges and struggles as they work hard to become full-fledged shinobis. 

Naruto’s Comeback

With the upcoming comeback of Naruto, it will bring the older side of the anime fandom a sense of nostalgia that shaped their childhood and early days of watching anime. Though the series is still technically continuing after the sequel Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, the original Naruto will definitely be anticipated by most anime fans who watched Naruto.
