November tenth is a big day in the world of anime and manga. The final chapter of Naruto is being released today in Weekly Shounen Jump issue 50. In 1997, a one shot chapter of Naruto was published in Akamaru Jump Summer (a seasonal special issue of Weekly Shounen Jump). The manga premiered in Japan in 1999 and made its way over to the U.S. in 2003.
