Dattebayo! The Naruto Anime Celebrates Twentieth Anniversary


It’s hard to believe it has been twenty years since we were introduced to the No. 1 Hyperactive Knucklehead Ninja, Naruto Uzumaki. Today marked the Twentieth Anniversary of the anime series based on Masashi Kishimoto’s Action Fantasy Manga, Naruto.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, the anime team released three new visuals. Studio Pierrot also released a brand new promotional video showcasing our favorite ninja’s journey to becoming Hokage.

Also, Masashi Kishimoto drew a commemorative illustration for the big event, which included a special comment to the fans.


Naruto’s official website also opened today creating a hub for the franchise that will contain official news on the series as well as exclusive images from the creators. The website is available in six different languages including Japanese, English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
