Naruto's New Manga Confirms American Release

Have you heard the exciting news? Naruto is making a highly-anticipated comeback this month, and we have Shueisha to thank for it. In celebration of the franchise's 20th anniversary, Naruto held a poll earlier this year, resulting in Minato Namikaze being granted a special manga. Now, the one-shot is ready to be unveiled, and we have learned that the story will be released in the United States as well.

Indeed, the news is absolutely legitimate. Shueisha has officially confirmed that the upcoming Naruto manga will be released in English simultaneously with its Japanese counterpart. So, if you're eager to delve into the one-shot, you won't have to wait long as it is scheduled for release this coming weekend.

According to the publisher, the manga titled "Naruto Gaiden: Uzumaki no Nakamura no Tsumujikaze" will be available in English on Manga Plus. This special edition will feature a binge-worthy 55 pages, primarily focusing on Minato. The cover art indicates that the manga will explore aspects of Minato's life as a young adult, offering a deeper glimpse into how the Fourth Hokage earned his revered title.

It's worth noting that Minato received this special manga as a gift from Akira Toriyama after a global poll. Naruto organized an international event earlier this year, inviting fans to vote for their favorite Naruto character they wished to see featured in a new manga. Minato emerged victorious, with other beloved characters like Shisui and Kakashi following closely. Now, with just a few days remaining until the release of Naruto's new manga, fans can be assured that it will debut in the United States alongside its Japanese premiere.

If you haven't caught up with Naruto yet, you can certainly indulge in this side story to get a taste of what it has to offer. However, if you prefer to start from the beginning, Naruto is readily available on Manga Plus and the Shonen Jump app. And for those seeking more information about Naruto, you can find the official synopsis provided below:

"Twelve years ago the Village Hidden in the Leaves was attacked by a fearsome threat. A nine-tailed fox spirit claimed the life of the village leader, the Hokage, and many others. Today, the village is at peace and a troublemaking kid named Naruto is struggling to graduate from Ninja Academy. His goal may be to become the next Hokage, but his true destiny will be much more complicated. The adventure begins now!"
