According to a short article, printed in the Sunday edition of the Japanese Asahi Shimbun newspaper, the Naruto manga by Masashi Kishimoto is nearing its climax. This was said by the famous mangaka himself. The news is telling us that everyone’s hopes and fears that the great ninja war that is currently happening in the manga will bring along the end of Naruto.
Naruto has been running in the weekly Shounen Jump manga magazine by publishing house Shueisha since 1999. Yes, Naruto, Sauke, Sakura, Kakashi, Kabuto and all other characters of this story that has given life to many otaku dreams has been around for 13 years already. The author has said, except that the story is rising towards its climax, that the final scenes and conclusion of the biggest shounen story (along with One Piece) have been set for a long time and he is just crating the way for these very last scenes right now.
This is going to be yet another shock after the final battle in Bleach was announced. Hopefully for all the shounen fans around the world, at least One Piece hasn’t been announced as ending …yet.
