Naruto App Launches, All 700 Chapters of the Manga and 220 Episodes of the Anime Available for Free

Masashi Kishimoto’s popular manga Naruto concluded in the newest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (Shueisha) on sale Nov. 10. Using this timing, a new and official iOS and Android Naruto app was launched.

From here on, all 700 chapters of the serialized manga and all 220 episodes of the anime will be available for free on the app. The manga will be serialized every day, and the anime will update at a rate of one new episode every Monday and Thursday. This is quite the magnanimous project.

The official app won’t just be the work itself, it will also be a tool for delivering information related to the series. The app will likely display its strengths in announcements of the newest information on the animated movie releasing on Dec. 6, the “Masashi Kishimoto Naruto Exhibit” planned for 2015, and more as well. Exclusive content you can only enjoy on the app is also planned. There will also be, among the paid content, a full-color version of the ebook.

In addition to the end of serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump, Naruto is the center of various large-scale projects. There was a lot to get excited about over the big event that was the serialization concluding, but the scale of Naruto is one that vastly exceeds the normal.

The start of content distribution on the official app and other such projects are measures often undertaken in the middle stage rather than the relatively early stage at the start of a series. Also profoundly meaningful is the title of the “Naruto Shinjidai Kaimaku Project” (Naruto Raise the Curtain on a New Age Project) which was announced along with the conclusion of the serialization. The animated movie, exhibition, and large-scale projects will follow in succession, but raising the curtain on a new age leaves a slightly unusual impression.

Even more projects are expected from here on for the “Naruto Shinjidai Kaimaku Project.” Don’t take your eyes off this series.
