Naruto to End its Serialization on November 10

There’s no denying that Masashi Kishimoto‘s best-selling manga Naruto has become one of the most popular series across the globe. The story, which revolves around the main character named Uzumaki Naruto, has been so famous that it spawned several media franchise such as anime series, OVAs, films, video games, and so on. The first Naruto anime adaptation was aired in Japan from 2002 until 2007, with 220 episodes in total. Its sequel, Naruto Shippuden, first premiered in 2007 and is still ongoing with 380 current episodes.

However, much to the surprise of all the fans, it has been recently announced that the serialization of the manga will conclude on the 10th of November next month. The manga currently has 690 chapters with the recent ones still not yet published in a tankōbon volume. Dozens of rumors about the impending conclusion have buzzed the internet, but the announcement published on Shonen Jump seems to be the real deal.

After 15 years of its publication, the world of Naruto is coming to an end. Don’t worry though! The anime series still have a long way to go, and there will still be a movie coming up this December, entitled The Last: Naruto the Movie.

But what are your thoughts about its inevitable end?
