‘Naruto’ Creator Masashi Kishimoto Wins ‘Rookie Of The Year’ Award, Someone Needs To Look Up ‘Rookie’ In The Dictionary


Legendary mangaka Masashi Kishimoto is the man behind the global anime and manga sensation, Naruto. He started the Naruto manga in 1999 and now in 2015 he has been awarded the prestigious ‘Rookie Of The Year’ award for the series from the Japanese Government’s Agency of Cultural Affairs.

Now I’m not quite sure how in the world Kishimoto could be considered a rookie of his chosen artform considering he is a 15 year plus veteran of the manga medium, but his eligibility for this award may be due to the fact that Naruto is actually his first and only completed work. So there you go.

Regardless of all the controversy over whether Kishimoto should be considered a rookie or not, congratulations to the man who brought us Naruto on winning this fine award. Here’s looking at you, kid.

  1. This is ridiculous. There are more people that rant about the Naruto ending, that there are people that care about the boring ass news, and he wins an award?
    Kishimoto is just pathetic, he destroyed his own work, and then wins an award for it…
    Japanese culture is just fucked up… They should put that dumb asshole into a filthy prison, for inflicting so much “pain”, just because out of shits and giggles, like a mad 8 year old with too much power…
    I only watched most of Naruto’s second half, because of the promise, that Naruto and Sasuke will fight and kill each other (at least one would die). A MASSIVELY AWESOME ENDING to look forward too… Maybe not even the ending, and the series will continue without Sasuke… But something awesome…
    Did ANYTHING EVER live up to that promise? No… Everyone becomes magical, nothing makes sense anymore, and charcters literally get pulled out of their asses… “Oh by the way the world was created by some magic bitch and we stole mana from her watch out here she comes!”
    Freaking hate it when you have ONE THOUSAND EPISODES about ONE FINAL ENEMY… aaaand then someone comes up with something stupid, and one episode later, without ANY suspense, that crap appears…
    Just like freaking bleach… 1 million episodes about Aizen… WHO would watch the show after he died? Aizen dies, a portal to another dimension opens, a demon pokes his head through and goes like “yea lol i’m fugbidge, and i am 10 million times stronger then aizen!” Just idiotic… End an anime, with the great goal, that you were always going towards.
    Imagine in One Piece, at the end, they have a final fight against the world government, involving all the things that built up towards the end… The army of Elban attacking Marine HQ… The revolution army attacking them… and after the Strawhats come out victorious, and suddenly aliens land, that are just immune to EVERYTHING One Piece stands for, aka Devil Fruits, Haki and regular weapons, so the heroes have to train and learn… “super haki”… then they defeat those guys in a fight that is more boring then Luffy VS Spandam. Then the time skips, Luffy has kids with Robin, Nami with Ussop, Zoro with Perona, Sanji with pretty much everyone else… And they are just happy and shit ends…
    Nothing makes sense, and the BIG GOAL of the WHOLE ANIME, is not even mentioned again… you know? The ONE PIECE??? aka the fight Naruto Vs Sasuke?
    Don’t make up stupid things, just give us what you promised!
    At one point i want to see the strawhats being the kings of the world, and not stupidly happy smiling puppets without souls, but with idiotic kids with DBZ names, just for the sake of making a bit more money.

Let us know your thoughts!
