The Naruto manga is officially done and with the Naruto: The Last movie, the story of Naruto is officially over. It's been a long 15 years since Naruto began back in 1999 in Japan, when Bill Clinton was still in the White House and The Matrix was a thing that was popular. Young teens who started reading Naruto at that time are now adults and someone who is part of that generation, I now understand that all things come to an end even if you don't want it to end. It's part of life, a beginning and an end.

So let's take a look at some Naruto endings so we can properly say goodbye (even though the anime isn't over yet).

Don't cry. There's going to be a spinoff. Where Naruto is a dad. Hahahaha. Naruto as a father? Believe it. Narudad. Naruotou-san.

Naruto: The Last just premiered last weekend in theaters across the United States and the story of Naruto Uzumaki's adventures has come to a close. It's been 16 years since the first chapter of the Naruto manga was published in Japan and an entire generation of otaku have grown up with the orange-clad ninja and I'm sure many of you readers out there are part of that generation.

So I'd like to make this week's selection of anime openings to be about Naruto. I've forgotten just how many awesome songs were in Naruto openings and I still have them on my music players for some great listening. So let's go take a ninja dash down memory lane for a quick look at some Naruto openings.

[There's also a review for Naruto: The Last that is incoming so watch out for that later this week.]

Let Risette navigate you through Persona 4: Dancing All Night

I don't usually cotton much to so-called "character trailers" when they pop up in the usual game and anime hype cycle. They're usually nothing more than bits of voiced fluff, when I'd prefer to let the full work speak for it...

More Final Fantasy XV footage than you can shake a phantom sword at

It still feels almost unreal after so many years of being nothing more than a twinkle in Tetsuya Nomura's eye, but Final Fantasy XV looks like it might be an actual game that might be released. Square Enix is banking on...
