So Viz Media is putting the ninja demon-boy on the touring circuit. Yeah make that powerful ninja tow the company line! Who cares as long as there's free schwag involved.

The tour kicks off on November 4 in Atlanta, GA with subsequent stops scheduled for Bloomington, MN and Cedar Park, TX with future dates in 2007 to be announced.

It sounds really cool and I wish I was in the states because I would go be a total fanboy and check it out. I've been a fan of Naruto sinceI started reading Shonen Jump. I sure do miss Shonen Jump. Anyone want to ship me the last 2 years of it?

At each stop, a special event staging area will immerse young and older fans alike into the captivating and action-filled worlds of the popular manga and anime series. The event will feature multiple activity stations including a Ninja Academy, where visitors can learn special moves and techniques with an instructor, the Chakra Challenge, sponsored by Mattel, sneak peeks of upcoming anime episodes on a large main screen, a Bandai collectible game card area, several video game kiosks where fans can play the latest NARUTO video games from Tomy/D3P and NAMCO/BANDAI, a manga drawing area, and a green screen where fans can have their picture taken with a variety of backgrounds featured in the anime series. Upon entering, each visitor will be given a special NARUTO passport that will guide them to the various activities and after collecting passport stamps, each fan will receive an exclusive SHONEN JUMP NARUTO goodie bag filled with collectable premiums.
