The final chapter (in the manga) may have been told in Naruto‘s story, but that doesn’t mean it is all over. VIZ Media is bringing to North American an opportunity to expand Naruto fans personal collections with the release of two new books in November. First is the Uzumaki Naruto: Illustrations, a full-color art book from the creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto, which includes his art in color of all the fan favorite characters.
The second book to be released is, Naruto: Kakashi’s Story. This follows Kakashi Hatake, the former leader of Team 7 and now sixth Hokage as he goes on a secret rescue mission. This is a prose novel, so not a manga story. But like many prose books, it will feature some art by series creator Kishimoto as well.
