Masashi Kishimoto could soon be retiring from being a mangaka as news revealed in a magazine showing that after the latest naruto movie, Boruto: naruto the Movie, has aired, Masashi Kishimoto “won’t draw anything further”. Kishimoto also mentions that for the first time for a movie, he has written the entire script por himself, designed the characters and refined the story even further.

The English translation from the magazine artigo reveals:

The Boruto Movie, for the first time everything begins, starting with original characters. That is to say, it’s an original work of the author, me [Kishimoto], with everything existing completely and only inside my head. For the first time in the 11th naruto movie I wrote the entire script por myself, devised the character designs, refining them until I was satisfied, than for the sake of perfection requested that the staff to refine them further. When serialization ended, immediately all the time I used to spend on the mangá was poured into the movie. In truth this is the naruto film I really wanted to make. One last word….after this I won’t draw anything further.

Masashi Kishimoto RetirementThe story has not been fully confirmed, so until then please do take this story with a grain of salt. A lot of people agree with the fact that after 710 chapters, 11 movies, and extra art and concept for games and animê fillers, you can’t blame Kishimoto for taking a break.

On the other hand, others agree that after being satisfied with how well naruto has gone, he would possibly like to pursue his career as a mangaka in another capacity, therefore continue drawing but focus on something else.
