1st Naruto Chapter's Original Art Boards Reproduced in Full-Size
posted on by Karen Ressler
Japanese publisher Shueisha began distributing a pamphlet at the Naruto exhibit in Tokyo on Sunday, announcing that the publisher will release a reproduction of Masashi Kishimoto's original manuscript for the first chapter of his Naruto manga. Kishimoto and other artists draw their manga on B4-size — or 9.84x13.9-inch — sheets before printers shrink the art about 50% for the magazine pages and even more for the book volumes.
The full size pages, including color pages, will come in a special box, titled "Naruto Dai-1-Wa Fukusei Genkō Box -Sōden-" (Naruto Chapter 1 Manuscript Reproduction Box -Inheritance-).
