But Orochimaru may have bigger problems when the mysterious Akatsuki infiltrates his stronghold with a spy!
Masashi Kishimoto made his debut in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999 with Naruto, which became a big hit with both boys and girls. Kishimoto added a modern flavour to the ancient world of Japanese ninja to make Naruto one of the most popular series in Japan.
