Naruto Uzumaki is a young Ninja who wishes to rise to glory and eventually become the leader of his village, despite the challenges presented by situations beyond his control.
His story first appeared in the Japanese manga Karakuri in 1995.
The story continued in an additional manga volume and the serial Weekly Shonen Jump.
In 2002, Naruto became a television anime series.
A second series, eleven films, and a number of spin-offs have been created from the original story line.

The Naruto series has a universal appeal due in part to the fact that it is a coming-of-age story.
The characters not only grow physically from pre-teens to young adults, but evolve and mature in the process.
According to the University of Missouri's Christopher A. Born, "the Naruto storyline contains Confucian values which can be identified and embraced by preteen and adolescent boys...[including] hard work, friendship, and winning at all costs."
