Naruto Takes His Ninjutsu to the Net in First Official Franchise Website



You better believe that after multiple decades Naruto is finally getting his own official place on the internet with the official Japanese-team-run Naruto website. Though the website fully launches on October 3, a new manga visual is displayed on the front page alongside the launch of the official manga Twitter accounts in both Japanese and English, both of which have already started posting.





The official Naruto website will be available in six different languages including Japanese, English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, but doesn’t confirm how much information each language will have in comparison to the Japanese one.




Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto manga ran in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump from September 21, 1999, to November 10, 2014, inspiring two anime series, both of which are streaming right here on Crunchyroll. The sequel series, BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS follows Naruto’s son and was launched in Weekly Shonen Jump on May 9, 2016, by illustrator Mikio Ikemoto and writer Ukyo Kodachi with Kishimoto taking back writing duties in November 2020.


BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS has also inspired its own TV anime series, which streams weekly here on Crunchyroll and is described as such:


The life of the shinobi is beginning to change. Boruto Uzumaki, son of Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, has enrolled in the Ninja Academy to learn the ways of the ninja. Now, as a series of mysterious events unfolds, Boruto’s story is about to begin!
