Clothing retailer UNIQLO is known for its graphic tees that often feature designs from popular artists or showcase popular characters such as Hello Kitty, Snoopy, and Luke Skywalker. UNIQLO has already released a variety of shirts highlighting manga including Ultimate Muscle and Naruto. Now, Naruto is returning with many of his popular Weekly Shonen Jump friends to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Shueisha's magazine through new T-shirts.
