Maybe it’s true that Naruto never achieved the same levels of popularity as dragonball, but its manga and anime enjoy an undeniable tradition and a large legion of fans who hold a special place in their hearts for this saga.
The evolution of the history of Naruto and its characters is quite extensive and complex. Just like with One Piece now, there was a time when our frank impression is that these guys’ story would never come to an end.
But as we all saw the story progressed and the manga ended up closing the plot after years of quite entertaining stories for those who had the patience and affection to see all the chapters.
Now, with the closing of this year, the two decades of the moment of the birth of this franchise are approaching.
It is known that there will be a special announcement around this celebration that will be made on December 17, 2022, basically within a week, by the time we are writing these lines.
But the reality is that many do not know what will be revealed.
How Naruto’s 20th Anniversary Will Be Celebrated
To be honest, recently we have seen some very striking official news around the celebration of this Naruto birthday.
There we have the case of the two spin-offs that have been published in manga format, with Sasuke’s Story that focuses on the relationship between Sakura and Sasuke.
In turn, we have also witnessed the edition of Konoha’s Story, which tells the story of the new disciple that Kakashi and Gai train.
But, for example, colleagues from MeriStation they have speculated about the announcement that would be made within a few days. Playing with the idea that they could reveal a new anime series.
Or better yet, they could end the whole thing with Boruto to make it a non-canonical story and better pick up the plot from another point in the narrative before everything takes that path of no return.
There is even talk online about the possibility that the anime could follow in the footsteps of Dragon Ball Z Kai by producing a new series with better animation and without the filler that was sometimes excessive.
This last possibility is honestly the most attractive. But it will be necessary to wait for an answer.
