Hatake Kakashi Merchandise You'll Love
Hatake Kakashi is one of the most popular characters in Naruto series. Apart from his parts in training and teaching Naruto both physically and mentally, which played the important part in Naruto's growth throughout the series, he became really popular amongst the fans because of his laid-back character. The fans have known him the most for his signature hobby; reading the Icha-Icha book series, the "adults" books written by Jiraiya, another teacher of Naruto, and his mysterious "face" which has always been concealed by a mask.
However, when Kakashi was teased to be "dying" or "dead" by the manga author in the latest arc in the Naruto manga, it sent a somewhat panic fever amongst the fans. It was as if hearing the news of someone very close to you die. Most fans were in disbelief and some even claimed not to continue reading and following the series anymore.That just shows how much Kakashi is loved amongst Naruto fans.
Whether it is true that Kakashi is "really" dead, it is best to just enjoy every episode of the anime where we can still see Kakashi well and alive, and enjoy that while we can.
