''On a cold night, when the wind and the leaves dance, the air was being corrupted and you could feel it on your skin, it was the immense power of the nine-tailed demon fox''.
The story of Uzumaki Naruto, the boy who dreamed of being Hokage.
This is a story written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, which tells the story of Uzumaki Naruto, a young ninja who constantly seeks recognition and dreams of becoming the Hokage, the leader ninja of his village. The story is divided into two parts, the first part takes place in Naruto's pre-teen years, and the second part takes place in his teens.
Naruto chapters were published in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from 1999 to 2014, with these chapters compiled and published in 72 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha publishers. The manga was adapted into an anime series produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex, which had its 220 episodes broadcast on TV Tokyo in Japan from 2002 to 2007.
I say without fear that Naruto is one of the manga adapted for anime stories that changed the world of anime and manga, although its author has already revealed without problems that he was very inspired by Dragon Ball Z, but everything he put in Naruto character impacted the world and became one of the most beautiful stories in anime.
All fiction based on Chinese and Japanese mythology where his techniques come from:
Ninjutsu: Techniques originated by the energy called Chakra, which is normally given by various methods, the most common being the realization of hand seals.
Outside fiction, the Japanese term jutsu is used to describe any technique, power, skill or (understanding its scope) arts in general. Within fiction, jutsus can include common fighting techniques to magical techniques, and even more comical ones, such as Sexy no Jutsu, in which the opponent comes to see the jutsu applicator as a sexy, naked woman, with the goal that so is confused and distracted during battle.
Genjutsu: Genjutsu manipulates the Chakra to target the opponent's nervous system, confusing and deceiving the five senses (taste, smell, sight, hearing and touch) to create illusions. Though it sounds simple, Genjutsus can be aggressive enough to paralyze an experienced ninja and leave them in shock, vulnerable to attack, or allowing the Genjutsu user to escape.
Taijutsu: Taijutsu is a form of combat that is based on physical abilities. The techniques can involve the use of martial arts (with specific or free fighting styles), as well as any kind of enhancement to the ninja's natural abilities, without much need for Chakra manipulation in its primitive form.
However, mixing Chakra control with melee skills greatly enhances the efficiency and power of blows such as the Hyuuga Clan's Jyuuken of Hidden Village of Leaf and the powerful punches and kicks of the Fifth Hokage, Tsunade, and from his pupil, Sakura Haruno.
Naruto wasn't at all skilled but he worked hard to be and give us the best moments in his series when he killed Pain and gained recognition from the entire village that once looked at him as a demon, his father sealed this monster that almost destroyed the whole village within him because he believed he would be able to master his powers.
He won the Great Fourth Ninja War and became the hero of the 5 great nations, of the entire world in his universe, not to mention the immense lessons that anime teaches us with his life and trajectory.
I consider it one of the best fantasy stories that can add a lot to the world of short anime stories and cartoon fiction.
