The show has a colorful cast of characters, running a range of detailed histories and complex personalities.  These include Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and team leader, Kakashi Hatake. Together with Naruto, they face many challenges, make friends, face deadly enemies, and try to survive each other.

Naruto Posterzine will be available for sale on January 15.
