Everyone is influenced by the end of Masashi Kishimoto-sensei’s manga Naruto. Having become one of the most popular titles on a worldwide basis, this story is also getting a remarkable farewell. See below all the amazing messages that the Naruto manga creator received from his Nakama in the Weekly Shounen Jump.
Millions hearts were broken once Naruto’s last chapter was published. Full-colour and a canon epilogue with romance, the Hokage truth and a mysterious path for Sasuke. Fans of One Piece also felt it as Eiichiro Oda devoted his own manga’s cover page to the other one big title which grew up somewhat alongside his own Luffy. See both images where Masashi Kishimoto pays tribute for a great senpai (One Piece) and where that same man, mangaka Eiichiro Oda shakes hands with him.
The third image is a segment of the latest Weekly Shounen Jump magazine where the last two chapters of the Naruto series was published. Read what the other mangaka had to say for Kishimoto-sensei and his amazing effect on the shounen scene.

I have intentionally left out Yuudai Kimura’s comment, as it was unrelated to the Naruto manga finale.
Naruto’s Kishimoto-sensei shared his thoughts as well: It’s a bittersweet, reaching the last chapter. Although it’s difficult for me, I can say one thing: I am very thankful to my readers, for sticking with us until the end. It was a long journey. Believe!
