Early Life and Career
Kishimoto was born together with his twin brother in Nagi, Okayama, Japan. Kishimoto submitted his first manga pilot to Shueisha back in 1995 under the title Karakuri. At the time he was working with Kasuke Yahgi as an editor where most of their drafts ended up rejected. This included titles like Michikusa and Asian Punk. He then wrote his One Shot of Naruto’s version in 1997 where it was published in Akamaru Jump Summer magazine.
The successes of this led to him getting a shot with Weekly Shonen Jump in December 1997. He then went back to revise Karakuri and managed to have it released for the first time in 1998 although it was not that much of a success. After experiencing this difficulty, he changed to Seinen once again and had two drafts of Baseball King and Mano. He was advised by his editor to give Seinen another try once more. He worked on Magic Mushroom to wich his editor suggested that they get the serialization of the storyboards.
After this Kishimoto and Yahagi worked on Naruto. Its successes had it premiered on Weekly Shonen Jump in September 1999. At first, it was ranked at position 43. It was not before long that Naruto’s Manga’s popularity skyrocketed and became a hit as it developed into Naruto and later Naruto Shippuuden that came to an end in 2014.
