Definitely an interesting article. It must kinda suck for Seishi, having a twin brother so much more successful than him. Wonder if anyone confuses him for Masashi and he has to awkwardly explain that his twin brother is the one who makes Naruto.

Last poll was as expected. Not much love for Popplio. spoiler[At least it did better than Aquors did] in today's episode.

As a Kishimoto-fanboy I already knew most of this trivia. Only exception is the one about him being a Gundam fan, I might have to re-read the fight against Kakuzu to catch all the references.

And if seeing his characters kissing is too embarrassing to bear, I wonder how he would react to fandoujins Twisted Evil

Huh didn't expect this. Since Bleach just ended I think a list about Tite Kubo or Bleach would be more fitting.

I only follow Bleach in the HST but I kinda want to read Naruto now (and maybe Satan 666 by his twin brother now).

you are thinking like a moral person, but if we assume that seishi is his evil twin, having a millonaire brother can be really helpful to do evil stuff.

Didn't know he was a twin Surprised . haha, I don't think things need to end with pairings if the author doesn't want to but I imagine the fandom would've gone crazy either way...

Here are a few snippets of trivia about the author of one of the most beloved shonen manga in the world!


You say most beloved manga, and I say filler ridden anime that milks the cow dry. Laughing Whatever makes money I guess... It's just not something that interests me. Even when I decided to see what all the buzz was about towards the end of the manga, it just didn't give me the same feeling that I get from reading stuff like My Hero Academia or One Piece. Hell, I seem to be enjoying Toriko more so than what I read of Naruto towards the end, which is surprising. I'm not sure if my opinion would change all that much if I decided to invest the time to read Naruto from beginning to end, but my gut feeling tells me I'd more or less feel the same as I do now.

From what I can ascertain about Seishi Kishimoto and O-Parts Hunter, Seishi doesn't seem to be that bothered by it. I didn't even know he was related to Masashi until this article. This could mean Seishi prefers not to talk or think about his brother though.

As for the Pokémon starter poll, looks like I was right. I am going with Popplio. It will definitely be handy considering the huge amounts of Surfing I'm sure you'll need to do to travel around Alola.

That'd be interesting too. Tite Kubo's pretty good at English too, considering he seems to directly read tweets in English and he watches TV in English in his office. (New fact: Kubo and the Two Strings is an autobiography of his childhood.)

Yeah, I thought he was worth more than that.

I didn't know about 1-4. Thank you for the article, Anime News Network!

I would like to try the ramen of Ichiraku. It sounds delicious! Very Happy

20 millions is a bit sad, I mean how much is JK Rowling worth?

Good, good, let the fluffy owl reign supreme...

And as for live-action Naruto, there's only one true choice.

Zac Efron. He was already shafted for Death Note, don't let him down now!

In most of the trivia, even I can't believe it.

Same for me with Gundam, but that DOES give me an excuse to see spoiler[Naruto obliterate Kakuzu with Rasenshuriken]. As for the kissing, it DOES explain why the canon romance ended up being horribly underdeveloped, but what do you expect from a guy who said that that same kissing scene felt like his two children had grown up (make of that what you will) and only had his honeymoon thirteen years after getting married?

Well what did you expect jumping into a series when it's already at its conclusion? You lose so much context and emotional investment that it's not even possible to build a connection to the series. My Hero Academia was actually inspired by contemporary manga like Naruto so bear that in mind.
