This week’s Shonen Jump not only marks its 50th issue of the year, but the end of Naruto as well — with the release of its last two chapters within the issue.  With Naruto’s departure, various various mangkas (manga authors)  paid their respects to both Naruto and its mangaka, Masashi Kishimoto.

Eiichiro Oda also dedicated the cover of chapter 766 of One Piece to Naruto. The Cover depicts the series’ lead character, Luffy, eating Ramen (Naruto’s favorite food) right alongside of a fox (which is a nod to the Nine Tails that inhabits Naruto’s body), and Nami can be seen wearing a dress covered with Hidden Leaf Village crests.

It appears as though the readers are not alone in their grieving from the conclusion of Naruto — but are also joined by Kishimoto’s peers as well.
