Naruto Shinden novels.

Naruto Shinden (NARUTO -ナルト- ナルト新伝, Literally meaning: Naruto: Naruto New Story) is a light novel series which began publication with Konoha Shinden: Steam Ninja Scrolls in 2016, but was not formalised until it was relaunched with three additional novels that were released from May to July 2018, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Shueisha Jump jBooks.[1]

Novels and Synopsis

The first novel was originally meant to be part of a series that would help bridge Naruto and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations,[2] but the 2018 relaunch shifted focus to Naruto and his companions' learning to become parents, and their relationships with their children.
