For fans it is not surprising that Itachi is among the top positions, considering that he is one of the most popular characters (and at the same time one of the most controversial). However, yes It’s a bit unusual that it’s Minato who’s leading the results so far.

Minato Namikaze was the fourth Hokage and one of the most powerful shinobi in Konoha. Unfortunately He died along with his wife during the Nine-Tails’ attack on the Konoha village.designed by Obito and Madara Uchiha, by sacrificing his life in order to seal a part of the Kyubi in his newborn son, Naruto.

By virtue of this, Minato Namikaze has very limited appearances in the Naruto it is understandable that fans want to know more about this powerful shinobi.

With regarding the plot that this next one will have spin-off there is not much informationThe little that is known is that the manga that Masashi Kishimoto will do will have as its main character the winner of the great poll mentioned above.

While the character most likely to win the lead role so far is Minato Namikaze, this survey still has quite a bit of time left, so It is not 100% sure that he will be the one who will star in the next spin-off. It could happen that there is an unexpected twist and another character manages to get more votes.

Undoubtedly the history of Naruto has incredible characters with great potential and much loved by fanswho have a high probability of winning this survey.

A clear example of a character who, in case Minato does not stay in first place, could win the poll is Itachi Uchihawho has always had great popularity and has captivated fans with his story.

While there is no doubt that a manga starring Minato would be somewhat surprising, in order to know who will be the character that takes first place and wins the lead role in the next spin-off from Naruto, it will be necessary wait a bit for the survey to end and the winner is finally revealed.
