22 Famous Mangaka Who Drew Naruto In Their Own Style

Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto is one of the most respected and influential modern manga out there. It's not just fans who appreciate Kishimoto's work - it's also his fellow manga artists. In a moving tribute created by Jump magazine, artists like Tite Kubo (Bleach), Hirohiko Araki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) and Eiichiro Oda (One Piece) draw Naruto fanart in their own signature styles. There's even two beautiful full color pieces by Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball fame. These were created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the manga, which was first published in Jump in 1999.

Naruto drawn by other manga artists is an example of artist solidarity and it's awesome. 2019 was the 20th anniversary of the series, but it's important to highlight the beautiful artwork that came before. Which ones are your favorite?
