THE WORLD'S BEST SHINOBI IS DECIDED!

A MESSAGE FROM MASASHI
KISHIMOTO

[NARUTOP99] NARUTO has done many character popularity surveys in Japan’s Shonen Jump magazine, but this is our first time doing a vote on a global scale, so I’m excited to see which characters will make it to the top ranks! I’m eagerly awaiting lots of votes from fans around the world!!

投票終了しました。現在集計中です!

After a total of 186,935 votes, the result was a landslide win for Itachi Uchiha! Many voters commented imagining what it would be like to sit next to him, saying things like "I'd be so nervous I couldn't talk!" Coming in second was Konan, followed by Deidara in third.
Some fans also left comments in support of characters who weren't candidates, like Nagato and Kakuzu.
*The candidates for the Special Vote were chosen according to a theme by members of the editorial team.

Many fans spoke about how they saw themselves in Naruto, who had both of those ninja as teachers.

After a total of 692,923 votes, the winning jutsu is Naruto's signature Shadow Clone Jutsu!
In addition to being widely known, its wealth of practical applications made it the most sought-after jutsu by a landslide! Kamui took second place, followed by The Infinite Tsukuyomi in third, highlighting the popularity of Sharingan jutsu.
Many fans also expressed their desire to try out jutsu that weren't included in the vote, such as the Flying Raijin Jutsu, Fire Style: Fire Ball Jutsu, and Sexy Jutsu!
