Who is naruto creator?
Masashi Kishimoto (born November 8, 1974) is the author of the famous manga Naruto. He debuted as a mangaka with his work Karakuri, which was submitted to Shueisha in 1996. Beginning with 1999, his next work Naruto was serialized in the Weekly Shonen Jump manga magazine. Kishimoto had received the Hop Step Award, which was an award given to new artists once a month by Shonen Jump.
Born in the Katsuta county of Okayama, Japan Kishimoto has been drawing from a very early age. But it wasn't until he was older that he recognized his dream to become a Mangaka (Mangaka is the Japanese meaning for cartoonist). While in art college Kishimoto created a manga called "Karakuri" which he then submitted to the Hop Step award (Monthly award given by Shonen Jump for amateur Mangaka). Karakuri wins the award and sets Kishimoto on the path to his dream of becoming a Mangaka. Upon graduation of art college, Kishimoto works hard on his next manga "Naruto" which is then published in Akamaru Jump. Two years down the line and a new final version of Naruto is published in the weekly Shonen Jump in 1999 and becomes the Naruto you know and crave today.
In his interviews and exclusively in the Naruto manga, he commonly mentions his deceased plant, Ukki-kun. According to Kishimoto, the first time he had an office plant, due to missing the country atmosphere, he fed it undiluted plant food. He continued purchasing several other plants afterwards, but many of them perished.
