The TV anime adaptation of Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto manga first hit the airwaves in Japan on October 3, 2002, so this year marks the big 20th for the series. One of the ways the celebration is going down is in the form of an anime exhibition—the first for the series since 2015—and a new visual has arrived to hype up NARUTO THE GALLERY ahead of its December opening.

The NARUTO THE GALLERY exhibition is set to showcase a myriad of animation-based visuals, including how the characters grew throughout the series, their bonds together as friends and enemies, as well as the battles that the cast partook in – all using anime footage and art. There will also be new collaborative works screened at the event from video artists who are fans of Naruto.
NARUTO THE GALLERY is scheduled to be held at AKIBA_SQUARE in the UDX building in Akihabara from December 10, 2022, till January 31, 2023. You can catch the entire Naruto and Naruto Shippuden TV anime right here on Crunchyroll with the sequel series BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS streaming weekly as it airs in Japan.
