What to expect from the manga:

Since the manga will be authored by Naruto’s original creator, Masashi Kishimoto, we can expect something really special! He has stated that the manga will be about a younger Minato and will mostly focus on his growth as a young shinobi and his ninjutsu. So we can definitely expect how he invented the legendary Rasengan. It can also explore his relation with Jiraya. We might get a deeper dive into the development of the relationship between Minato and Kushina Uzumaki.


Some other details:

The manga will be a one shot which means it will get only one chapter. However, that chapter will be long. It is revealed that the chapter will be 55 pages long featuring multiple coloured pages. It’s Japanese title is NARUTO Gaiden: Uzu no Naka no Tsumujikaze with the English title still to be decided. It will be published on the 33rd issue of the weekly shonen jump, on 18th of July.
