The story of Naruto centers on a teenager named Naruto Uzumaki, who grew up receiving scorn and scorn from his village for being the vessel of the evil creature Kurama. Orphaned and alone, he engages in pranks for which he will receive more scolding until, one day, someone inspires him to become the greatest ninja in history. The adventure that spanned 15 years starts here.

In August 1996, cartoonist and writer Masashi Kishimoto published a story a single chapter (one shot) for the magazine Akamaru Kimp, but decides to extend it in November of that same year in collaboration with the publisher Shueisha for the successful weekly magazine Shōnen Jump. The success it accumulated in its graphic serialization led it to be animated in 2002, the year in which the pilot premiered on the TV Tokyo network.
