I’ve stopped reading the Naruto manga for some months now and I’ve decided to stop reading because of the release of the naruto shipuuden anime. I think watching the anime is better because obviously, it is animated and more alive. Unfortunately, because of the slow release with some delays of the series, I grew impatient but I was still not convinced to peek again in the manga so I was able to hold my curiosity until I read a thread from a forum saying that Naruto’s controversial parent information is finally revealed in chapter 367. Finally I got tempted to look at the manga again but I didn’t jump to that chapter, I continued to read from the chapter where I stopped.
********************WARNING: Spoilers Ahead*********************
Like what Naruto fans around the world thought, there is a mysterious relation between Uzumaki Naruto and the deceased 4th hokage whether yondaime is Naruto or Naruto is the son of yondaime. It has been one of the greatest issue debated by many fans. Now, Masashi Kishimoto has finally revealed the link between the two in chapter 367 of the manga.
Naruto is not yondaime!! He is actually the son of yondaime. Also, yondaime’s real name is Namikaze Minato. Naruto’s mother is a former whirlpool country kunoichi named, Uzumaki Kushina. There is no image of Kushina because it was just revealed by Jiraiya and Tsunade’s conversation but according to jiraiya, she has a red hair and a tomboyish behavior, then Tsunade said she grew up to be a beautiful ninja suggesting that Kushina is closely related to konoha(kinda like Shikamaru and Temari). Tsunade also said that Kushina’s personality and ninjutsu style is pretty much more like Naruto’s although he looks more like his father yondaime. The reason why Naruto’s last name is Uzumaki which is from her mother is not explained but my theory is that Minato and Kushina are not married maybe because marrying from another country is prohibited and illegal but once again, just my theory.
