Naruto is a manga series by Masashi Kishimoto adapted into an anime, multiple movies, and video games.

Plot

The Naruto series follows Naruto Uzumaki as he graduates from the Ninja Academy in the first chapter and episode. It turns out that he is the host of the nine-tailed fox Kurama who attacked the village twelve years prior and killed many. Afterwards, he becomes a Genin and is placed on team, along with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno, under the leadership of Kakashi Hatake. Naruto has a dream to become Hokage, which is the leader of the Hidden Leaf Village Konohagakure. He also has a crush on his teammate Sakura, but she has a crush on the other teammate Sasuke who is the most popular boy in their age group.

The rivalry between Naruto and Sasuke escalates until the latter grows to be very jealous. He is worried that he will not be able to get revenge against his brother Itachi, who killed his entire clan. Sasuke subsequently leaves the village to train under Orochimaru, who became an enemy to the village. Naruto fails to stop him and goes to train with Jiraiya for the next two and a half years. Meanwhile, Sakura trains under the current Hokage Tsunade and becomes a medical ninja.

After the time skip, retrieving Sasuke continues to be a priority, but he becomes a wanted criminal as well. Naruto returns, but finds that the criminal organization Akatsuki is after him. They are after all of the tailed beasts, including the nine-tails inside of Naruto. Extracting the tailed beast kills its host. Naruto manages to stop the organization, and the true mastermind reveals himself to be Obito. Sasuke rejoins the group to help end the war. Afterwards, he and Naruto battle again with the latter finally becoming victorious.

Fanon

Naruto has a very large fandom, and is one of the largest anime and manga fandoms. The Naruto manga and anime are very popular worldwide. While the series was ongoing, it was listed as one of the top 3 along with Bleach and One Piece. The popularity of the series is even comparable to that of Dragon Ball. Many fans like to cosplay characters from Naruto at anime conventions. It was popular while it was airing on Cartoon Network. It is continuing to air on Toonami, but this takes place after midnight and only once a week.

Shipping wars in the Naruto fandom are numerous and often cause very heated debates. The shipping wars mostly involve the NaruHina, NaruSaku, SasuSaku, and SasuNaru ships. This is mainly due to the large triangle between the characters. Hinata has a crush on Naruto, Naruto like Sakura, and Sakura has eyes for Sasuke who does not seem to have an interest in anybody. Many fans felt that it was obvious that Naruto was going to end up with Sakura, while many would rather have him end up with Hinata. In the end, Naruto married Hinata and had two children with her, while Sasuke married Sakura and had a daughter with her.

The Naruto ending showed the next generation which caused mixed reactions. Many fans felt that it should have not been shown, and shippers of the pairings that did not become canon were even more upset. However, NaruHina and SasuSaku shippers were very pleased with this. Some speculated that Sarada was actually Karin's daughter due to the resemblance. This ended up being a major plot point in Naruto Gaiden and even showed a DNA test result pointing to this. However, many fans speculated that this was just just a red herring, and it did turn out that Sakura is Sarada's mother.
