It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out that “Naruto”, at this point in time, is the most popular Shonen Anime/Manga series. In fact, it may be the most popular Anime/Manga series, period. Unlike many other series’, right this second, “Naruto’s” all-encompassing popularity has come about due to the fact that the long-running series is just about over forever. Or so we’re told.
Now don’t get my words wrong, “Naruto” is also much-loved to its characters, its story and the artwork behind the series but it’s no joke that the prospect of it ending has gotten people in a bit of a stir. This is why all the “Naruto” articles on our site are blowing up like crazy! Well, I’m here to deliver another piece of “Naruto-related” news that, let’s be real here, may or may not be one hundred percent legit. Basically…there’s a new “Naruto” Manga and possible Anime series on the way.
As you can see in the title of this article, it will be called “Naruto: The Next Generation” and it will focus on the children of the main cast. Reading “Naruto: The Next Generation”, even I feel skeptical but this is just a placeholder title. I’m sure it will change in the coming months. Shonen Jump Magazine, who broke this news, didn’t really give much detail on the upcoming series, only that it will be short and hopefully sweet. It’s definitely a great sendoff for the series that I’m certain all “Naruto” fans will be well and truly into. So far, we’ve not been given any word regarding any specific dates and whatnot so just expect to see this new series sometime in 2015.
