Meet Masashi Kishimoto, creator of Naruto, at Barnes & Noble on Saturday October 10, 2015 at 3:30 PM! This event is a rare opportunity to see the legendary creator in his first public appearance outside of Japan at this New York Super Week event sponsored by VIZ Media and the Japan Foundation.
Author/artist Masashi Kishimoto was born in 1974 in rural Okayama Prefecture, Japan. After spending time in art college, he won the Hop Step Award for new manga artists with his manga Karakuri (Mechanism). Kishimoto decided to base his next story on traditional Japanese culture. His first version of Naruto, drawn in 1997, was a one-shot story about fox spirits; his final version, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, quickly became the most popular ninja manga in Japan.
