Naruto: Shippuden Celebrates 20th Anniversary With New Posters

Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto is now celebrating its 20th Anniversary of the debut of its anime adaptation, and the series is going all out with some special new posters showing off some of Naruto: Shippuden's biggest moments! When the anime originally premiered in Japan on October 3, 2002, it was a much different kind of series than when it all came to an end. Much of that change came during the second part of the series after Naruto Uzumaki and the rest of his generation aged up several years following a major time jump. Then the series got even more intense than ever before.

With Naruto now celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the anime's original premiere, the series has been looking back on the franchise's run this far and tapping into the series' coolest moments over its run. With the anime previously releasing a special new poster to highlight the first era of the series before the cut off, Viz Media has released two new posters showing off Naruto: Shippuden's two distinct eras before and during the Fourth Great Ninja War. It's a cool new look for the franchise overall, and you can check it out below: 

Naruto's come a long way since the series first kicked off two decades ago, and it's at a much different place than when it first began. It remains one of the standout action franchises among fans as it has been one of the first few anime series that many fans were introduced to, and now it's even bigger than ever before as the franchise has since branched out with feature films, spin-offs, novels, manga, video games, and even a full on sequel series with its own manga and anime, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Naruto is only continuing from this point on as there are no signs of slowing down any time soon. As the franchise prepares for the next two decades of its run, there is a great chance that even more fans will discover the series for themselves.
