The first volume of Masashi Kishimoto’s original manga was first sold in Japan on March 3, 2000, with volume 72, the final volume, being released on February 4, 2015. More than 130 million copies of the manga are in circulation in Japan, and more than 75 million copies of the manga have been sold internationally. Madman has been distributing the manga in Australia since 2008.
Naruto Shippuden, the sequel to the Naruto anime, is still airing in Japan and much of it is also available on DVD in Australia thanks to Madman.
For those who have not seen Naruto before and are interested in checking out the show before making the decision of whether or not to buy the series on DVD, the first 26 episodes can be found here and viewed by people with an AnimeLab account. These episodes are available on DVD across collections one and two.
