Hatake Kakashi from Naruto Anime: Story and Biography

Updated on March 19, 2013

Hatake Kakashi, One of The Most Popular Characters in Naruto

Naruto is a very well-known Japanese manga (comic) and anime (animation) series, both in the US and across the world. The series, both manga and anime, have created a phenomenal success throughout the world, especially amongst teens and young adults. Naruto manga has been running since 1999 and has had up to Volume 46 as of May 1, 2009, while the anime has been airing since October 3, 2002 in Japan and is still showing on TV Tokyo as of now.

The series quickly gained its fans because of its story, which the main character, Naruto Uzumaki, had to go against all the odds in order to reach his dream and to protect the bond he has with his lost best friend. So many people could relate to Naruto's hardship in life, and to some point idolize him. The characters around him played really important parts in the story. Amongst these characters is his teacher, Hatake Kakashi.

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.

      NOOOOOO! If he died, I would be devastated! Here's a suggestion. How about a whole new manga series about Kakashi?!? Although, I do love "Naruto" and hope that this manga series will never end.
