Masashi Kishimoto was raised with his identical twin, Seishi Kishimoto, who is a manga artist as well. He started drawing while he was a child, under the inspiration of anime shows he then watched with his brother, like “Doraemon”, “Kinnikuman”, and “Dragon Ball”. Over the years, his idol became the author of “Dragon Ball” Akira Toriyama, and he was also a big fan of “Weekly Shōnen Jump”, the magazine in which it was published. In high school, Kishimoto was enthralled when he saw a poster for the animated film called “Akira”, and he decided to create his own manga character, so he then he enrolled at an art college. In his sophomore year, Kishimoto started drawing shonen manga for magazine contests: one of his characters was manga named “Karakuri”, which won the Hop Step award. Soon afterwards he met the designer of the manga “Ninku”, Tetsuya Nishio, who had effect on him, and his career as a professional manga artist began.

The sales of the comic were reportedly as high as 300 million copies across the world, increasing Masashi`s net worth by a large margin.

To speak further of Masashi`s success with Naruto, he has also published several guide books such as “Naruto: Tales of a Chaste Ninja” (2015), “Naruto: Kakashi’s Story” (2015), “Naruto: Tales of a Gutsy Ninja” (2010), and others, all sales of which increased his net worth.
