    This was actually pretty damn good volume. Shikamaru and Asuma along with a few other ninjas go to take on two of the members of the Akatsuki. This time they face off against a member who can't die and basically becomes a voodoo like doll to inflict pain on others. A fast paced volume with a lot of people on the verge of death the entire time. Naruto is also working on his super training and we might see results soon. Overall emotional arc with a ton of payoff. Probably the best arc in this seco This was actually pretty damn good volume. Shikamaru and Asuma along with a few other ninjas go to take on two of the members of the Akatsuki.

I really liked Asuma, and Shikamaru's reaction hit me so hard...and it's just gonna get worse from here. This was such a shock when I watched it. I remember thinking, "Shikamaru is owning again and he's going to save the day..." and then boom...it happened.

Other than Granny Chiyo, this is the first of the many big deaths in Shippuden and I ugly cried in the show (and here) when Asuma told Team 10 his last words. I also just want to say that Pain's speech at the end is absolutely terrifying and ties in a bit to some real world things. The Akatsuki are terrific villains and I love how they all get to come to the forefront at one time or another. It makes you care about them. Kishimoto sensei is a genius and this series has been one of the best series' I've ever had the pleasure of watching and now reading. Going back through again is just verifying it.

    I'm halfway through this series and absolutely loving it. Here I was thinking I'm over Manga and Anime because I'm an adult now. Naruto proved me wrong. Its got action, good story-line and plot twists. It is more than just a fun read. The tale weaves in themes of friendship, perseverance, sacrifice, revenge and war. You gain inspiration. You see the characters mature, physically and mentally.

    This was fun. I absolutely love it when Shikamaru is involved in a battle. His mind is indeed brilliant but this time he is up against opponents who have powers beyond anything he can imagine. With Asuma and two other guys I do not care about, they take on against Hidan and Kakuzu but things do not go down according to plan. On the side note, to know the true motives of Akatsuki's organization was a bonus. When you have such antagonists in your literature, the story itself is lifted to another l This was fun.

When you have such antagonists in your literature, the story itself is lifted to another level and some errors and plotholes can be ignored. Whoever is the leader of Akatsuki has much more going on inside his head. Naruto's training is like making of a legend. Will he be able to master something which even Fourth Hokage could not master? His training is just an inspiration to everyone giving a message that it requires such a hard work to become someone special and powerful. Train hard and you will see the fruits. You become master of something only after giving your everything, your body, your mind and your soul.

    Another fantastic volume that gives Shikamaru the opportunity to put to good use his high intellect. And to do it up against Hidan, an Akatsuki that you just don't want to mess with? This turned out to be intense and emotional by the end with a devastating loss.

    One of the most excruciatingly painful volumes of this series! How does one defeat an immortal beast? I must say Shikamaru is one of the most amazing characters created by Kishimoto.

    A couple of battle scenes, but the ending was a little too maniacal villainy. Hopefully my loan comes in from the library soon and I can continue the story.

Once upon a time, the spirit of an evil Nine Tailed Fox wreaked havoc on Konohagakure; the Village Hidden in the Leaves, killing hundreds of honorable ninja in the skirmish and leaving many children without homes or parents. The Fourth Hokage (leader of the village) unleashes a forbidden jutsu (magic spell/ninja ability) to seal the spirit of the evil fox into the body of a newborn baby named Naruto at the cost of his own life. He did this in the hopes that the boy could one day learn to master the power of the demonic spirit and use it to protect the village and become a great hero of the people. Unknown to the citizens of the Leaf, the Nine Tailed Fox was being controlled by an even more powerful adversary, a legendary rogue ninja that plans to wage war against the entire world from the shadows. The identity of the mysterious ninja that attacked the Leaf Village using the Nine Tails died with the Fourth Hokage, and he used what remained of his life to gift Naruto with the power of one day being able to stop this evil ninja and a clan of outlawed S-rank criminals called the Akatsuki from committing mass genocide against the many hidden villages and clans of the world. Because of the evil spirit sealed inside him, Naruto grew up hated by the other children of the village because they believe him and the Nine Tails to be one and the same. They believe he’s a ticking time bomb waiting to go off, waiting for the perfect moment to kill them all just like the Nine Tails killed their parents and families. Shunned, dehumanized and treated like dirt, Naruto vows to become the greatest hokage the world has ever seen so that he can receive the love and acknowledgement he never got as a child. On top of the Nine Tails power and the will to never quit, Naruto also possesses the uncanny ability to turn everyone he meets into a potential comrade. He brings out the best in his peers and tries his hardest to make his enemies see the errors of their ways. He disobeys the rules and ignores cultural traditions to try and make changes to the world and break the eternal cycle of war and hatred through his own methods. His determination is infectious to friend and foe alike. He earns himself the respect he deserves by overcoming one impossible obstacle at a time. Naruto encounters many fascinating and terrifying ninja over the course of his journey to become hokage. Among them are Sasuke Uchiha, Naruto’s best friend and rival who is driven by the vengeful lust to murder his elder brother after he wiped out their own clan in cold blood. Sasuke warms up to Naruto, but his hatred and trauma are dangerous forces that threaten to break his moral code as a ninja and destroy his reputation among his peers. Kakashi Hatake is a notorious copycat ninja that survived one of the most brutal and devastating wars in history as well as the Nine Tails attack on the Leaf Village. He becomes Naruto and Sasuke’s mentor and teaches them a great number of valuable lessons about surviving in the dangerous world of rogue ninja, bloodthirsty assassins and clans ruled by corruption. Jiraiya is a perverted yet wise sage who taught the Fourth Hokage everything he knew and he’s regarded as a god among shinobi that’s famous for his heroic actions in the second great ninja war. He takes an interest in Naruto and raises him as a father figure to carry on the legacy of the Fourth Hokage to prepare him for the many dangerous people that want to use his power for their own nefarious purposes. The Akatsuki is one such group of wicked ninja. Among them are Sasuke’s brother Itachi who murdered his clan and possesses many dangerous techniques involving illusions, psychological torture and elemental manipulation. Sasori who controls poisonous puppets with magical threads, Orochimaru who mastered the forbidden arts of reanimation and quasi-immortality, Deidara who fights from afar using detonating clay and many other deadly foes. The entire series chronicles Naruto and his fellow ninja comrades growing through countless trials and tragedies. There are hundreds of unique jutsus, clans, and techniques which lead to some very intense, creative and strategic battles between skilled ninja with diverse abilities that don’t always match up evenly. There are clan based abilities such as the Aburame clan’s ability to control insects, the Yamanaka clan’s ability to jump into other people’s minds and control their bodies and the Inuzuka clan’s ability to bond with wolves that learn to mimic their master’s battle skills. Then there’s ocular genetic abilities such as the sharingan which allows the user to create psychological illusions, copy their enemy’s abilities and manipulate elemental energy. The byakugan allows the user to read their enemies vital points and detect their spiritual energy from faraway. The rinnegan grants control over space and gravity and so on. On top of having countless unique abilities, nearly every character has a tragic backstory that makes them sympathetic and relatable, even the nastiest of the villains have well-explored reasons for following the paths they do and becoming the way they are. One of my favorite aspects of the series is how well it explores the physical, emotional and psychological effects war can have on society and culture as well as the survivors and future generations that are forced to live in them. How it breeds racism and cultural disputes, how it inspires hatred in orphaned children and war veterans robbed of their homes toward foreign nations, as well as how this eventually leads to further death, war, poverty and destruction. Learning to forgive the ones you hate to prevent further conflict and damaging the world for future generations even further is a major theme throughout the story. Being a massive 700 chapter series, it’s not too surprising that there’s some plot holes and consistency issues. A rule might be stated regarding the requirements and usage of a certain jutsu or ability only for that rule to be repeatedly broken 400 chapters later. Sometimes the characters and rules contradict themselves, sometimes the chronology of certain events and historical facts don’t match up perfectly, the lore and general backstory go through several retcons that change the philosophy and power scaling of the characters and the scope of world-building; the final arc especially drags on and breaks a lot of the logic and rules that the story spent the whole series setting up, etc... Naruto’s far from perfect, but I remember it very fondly for being one of the first series that introduced me to things like manga and Japanese entertainment in general. It was one of those childhood classics like Dragon Ball, Inuyasha, Yu Yu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin. The series grew up with me and I can’t help but feel grateful to it for introducing me to hundreds of other franchises that I’m still a huge fan of to this day and I continue to find many new ones on the regular. Naruto's journey from a clownish, disrespected outcast into a talented, well-loved and admired hero is a memorable one.

    I must say it is and it will forever be(fingers crossed) my favorite Manga novel read. the way Masashi Kishimoto described the characters is just awesome, you get to see them growing up, becoming responsible... powerful... and it is not just characters, The plot itself is so much bigger... u simply can't get enough of it. and add to that, u get more than just entertainment, you learn... what is responsibility, respect, kindness, friendship... so it is not just a manga it is a way of living...

    While it's nice seeing Shikamaru be awesome, it's even more nice to see other characters develop, bloom, and die, serving themselves up as significance for others. That disturbed feeling in my heart is a great counterbalance to the optimism inherent in these books. Asuma, we shall miss you.

How can you not relate to someone who wants to cruise through life but the world refuses? He's tugged along. His sensei, Asuma, is rather unseemly, but they all bond in the end. Team ten is arguably the least talented. A lot of their arts are passed down by their clans and then aside from those skills all they have is each other. Ino-shika-cho! Kishimoto rips are hearts out as team ten's sensei is murdered. This sets a different tone for the second half of the series. No longer are the junior ninja in trouble only to be saved by the jounin. Nope, here we get a taste of how useless Shikamaru feels as he struggles to save the master he always looked up to. I can't remember if I cried, but my emotions were on par with tears whether I shed them or not. In a series this long we hardly see our main protagonists ever go, and it's pretty heartbreaking. At least we get the same vibes from old man Sarutobi's death. Asuma's reach never went very far, yet it was just as impactful.

    While Naruto attempts to master wind chakra, we watch an accomplished wind chakra user (Asuma) fighting against Hidan. The actual fight is pretty neat, with some smart use of wind chakra that we've seen explained to Naruto already now pushed to deadly new applications in the middle of combat. It's a great way to show how important this is for Naruto to learn without getting bogged down in exposition.

It's a great way to show how important this is for Naruto to learn without getting bogged down in exposition. There's some great emotional payoff to the past couple volumes of build-up for characters like Asuma and Shikamaru, too. My only real complaint is that this volume gets so bogged down in Shikamaru explaining things, and Akatsuki explaining things, and everyone having to talk the reader through what's pretty obviously portrayed. Still, great volume! Good arc, looking forward to how it gets expanded upon in the following volumes. Oh and we finally learn what Akatsuki's grand "plan" is. It's sort of stupid, but it's progress!

No matter what happens, I am rooting for all of Konoha's shinobis. This volume includes one of the most beautiful panel I have seen throughout this series.

    The good: -Shikamaru. This guy is by far my favorite character until now. -Hidan jutsu is sick and very powerful. -Naruto's new technique is very damn powerful, and kakashi's revelation to him is a very emotional moment. -Asuma's moment with his team number ten. -The battle against akatsuki. The bad: -I wasn't convinced with Akatsuki's goals being getting money, to conquer the world. But I know this has some twists and turns and there are some hidden motives. So, not real problem with this volume. The good: -Shikamaru.

    Caveat: I read volumes 19, 33-34 and 36-37 back to back, which means at the time of this review I know what has happened. So much has happened and all of it could lead to spoilers, which means this is going to be random sentences. Black Ops people are scary. Kakashi and Yamato with the possibility of Sai are scary! They may not act like the most capable and powerful shinobi, but you find out pretty fast why they have survived this long in a dangerous job. Pages 156-168 was so touching and sad.

    Shikamaru continue to be one of my favorite characters in the series. You know he's always got some ace up his sleeve, some smart twist to turn the battle, and he always delivers. He adapts on the fly in ways Naruto could only dream of. I hope we get to see him become the leader he's set up to be. (view spoiler)[Master Asuma didn't have a lot of screentime, but his death hit me hard. The way he treated the three young shinobi in his cell respectfully and warmly was different from other masters in Shikamaru continue to be one of my favorite characters in the series. You know he's always got some ace up his sleeve, some smart twist to turn the battle, and he always delivers. He adapts on the fly in ways Naruto could only dream of. I hope we get to see him become the leader he's set up to be. (view spoiler)[Master Asuma didn't have a lot of screentime, but his death hit me hard.

  30. 4 out of 5

    Zian B.

    Asuma, Shikamaru, and 2 others set out to battle Hidan and Kakuzu. Naruto starts some new and very difficult training with Kakashi, along with Yamato’s help. Naruto struggles with it more than he has previous training sessions. The fight between the Akatsuki pair and Konoha shinobi, ends badly despite a retreat from Hidan and Kakuzu. This volume had me emotional and I wasn’t as prepared as I thought I was.
