Naruto's Father's Manga Special Gets a Release Date


In a recent popularity poll, it was revealed that the most popular Naruto character wasn't the main protagonist or his son, the current focus of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Surprisingly, a character who has been deceased for a significant portion of the franchise, Minato, secured the top position. As a tribute to the Fourth Hokage, Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, has announced the development of a one-shot manga special that delves into Minato's early years. Fans can now anticipate the release date for this highly anticipated manga.

The upcoming manga special will delve into Minato's past, long before he became the Fourth Hokage of Konoha. It will explore his journey in acquiring one of his most formidable jutsus, earning him the renowned moniker, "Yellow Flash." In a recent statement, Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, shared his excitement about the upcoming special, saying, "I'm currently working on a short manga featuring Minato, who ranked 1st. As I aimed to meet the high expectations of his fans, the story ended up being more extensive than I initially anticipated. I invite you to anticipate the captivating tale behind Minato's remarkable jutsu!"
