Twenty years ago, the first chapter of Masashi Kishimoto's ninja epic was published in Weekly Shonen Jump. Since then, Naruto has grown to become one of the best-selling manga and anime of all time.

To commemorate the world's most popular ninja and its legions of fans, VIZ Media has announced the Year of Naruto which is comprised of a wide range of special projects that will be revealed very soon. This year-long celebration will continue throughout 2020 and will include video games, pop-up events, panel discussions, special live programming, and an array of collabs with top global lifestyle brands.

The Year of Naruto will officially kick off at New York Comic Con 2019, where VIZ Media will debut limited-edition Naruto products inspired by Masashi Kishimoto's original artwork, celebrating Naruto's manga roots. These exclusive items will include an official Naruto skateboard deck and a hand-numbered poster featuring Naruto in various stages of his evolution, from a ninja-in-training to a full-fledged Hokage.

Stay tuned for more details!!!
