History

NARUTOTM rise of a Ninja is centred on the main character of the anime.

12 years ago, a fearsome 9-tailed demon fox attacked the village of Konoha.

Many ninjas fell during the battle until the most powerful one sealed the monster into the body of a newborn… NARUTO.

Now NARUTO has grown up to a hyperactive ninja-in-training who’s more interested in pranks than schoolwork. However he’s determined to become the greatest Ninja ever!

With this dream in head he will never stop his efforts, and through hard work will gain respect and acceptance.

This is the rise of Ninja.
