Naruto Creator Announces End of Naruto

Mangaka Masashi Kishimoto has announced that the ongoing Naruto manga is coming to an end and that the long running series is now it’s final phase.


Kishimoto appeared in the show Skiyomi Jan BANG where he was quoted saying this:

“The battle of Naruto and his comrades is in it’s final phase, in the truest sense of the term. About the Ten Tails, about Madara, and then, about Sasuke…I will continue to raise the tension without restraint, in every way I can! Please follow this story of a boy named Naruto a little while longer, I will greatly appreciate it.”

No definite date or issue number but the promise of even greater battles is just news worthy in and of itself. We all will surely miss Naruto.
