Animenewsnetwork - Naruto Shippūden fans had their worlds rocked this week with the announcement that the manga is going to wrap up in early November, after fifteen years in print. How many Naruto fans were born in that time? How many fans stuck with it and watched every episode that's aired since 2002? Naruto isn't the first long-running manga to end, but still, it's the end of an era for fans of this offbeat ninja-world series. It would be great if this final stretch of the Fourth Shinobi World War saga could prove a proper send-off for the series. So far, however, it's been hit-or-miss.
