It’s time to get caught up on Naruto! If you want to know the chronological order of the show, keep reading.
Naruto is a Japanese manga series created by Masashi Kishimoto with an anime adaptation. It tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, an adolescent ninja who constantly searches for recognition and dreams of becoming Hokage, one of his village’s most powerful positions.
The title can roughly be translated as “Nine Tails Fox,” referring to the nine-tailed fox demon that attacked Konoha (the hidden leaf village) ten years before the start of this series and was stopped by Minato Namikaze (fourth Hokage), who sealed it inside Naruto when he was born.
