This year's 49th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that the "astonishing" finale of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto manga will be two chapters long in the following issue on November 10. In addition, the second chapter will be in full color. In all, the 50th issue will publish 44 pages.
The magazine announced earlier this month that the manga will end in this year's 50th issue on November 10.
Kishimoto has been serializing the ninja manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since 1999, and Shueisha will publish the 71st compiled book volume in Japan on November 4. Viz Media published the 67th volume in North America this month. The series ranked 4th among the top 10 Shonen Jump titles in terms of volume sales in 2012.
The series has spawned multiple television anime, anime film, original video anime, and game adaptations. The Naruto Shippūden anime is still ongoing, and a film titled The Last -Naruto the Movie- will open in Japan on December 6.
