    japan is full of wackiness. this is a fact. have you ever seen tokyo gore police?? i have. it is wacky. so is visitor q. they airbrush the pubic hair in their porn, they make beer for kids, they sell soy sauce flavored kit kats, their game shows are mind-boggling, everything is cute and brightly colored and for some reason, they still love hair bands from the eighties like bon freaking jovi. it is a land of wacky inventions:[image error]and wacky...

    I'm pretty much a die hard fan of this series, and now that it's done, I'm sad.For the sake of my aching heart, I'm going to reread it again and revel in its moments of light-heartedness, its pain, its desperate hope.Well, there was a bit of pain in the first volume, a lot of light-heartedness, and a taste of the promise to come. The nine-tailed demon fox is still far off on the horizon, but for now, we've got cute character exploration and dista...

    Naruto’s a teenage orphan with a secret. He’s training to be a ninja in ninja school in a village that used to be menaced by a giant fox with nine tails. But he’s a bit screwy – he doesn’t have parents so he’s a bit wild and acts out quite a bit, though he just knows he’s gonna be the greatest ninja ever. I think he will too because his name is the series title! The first volume introduces us to Naruto and his world. He learns how t...

    I resisted reading this for a long time because I was determined not to succumb to another one of my daughter's crazes (Pokemon -yes, I'm a 40 year old Pokemon Master, and Fruits Basket -wasn't as crazy about that one. A little too emo for my taste.)But this Naruto is well worth a read. I quickly grew to care for spunky, spazzy, orphaned Naruto and his shinobi-in-training classmates. They are oddly focused for 12-year-olds though, and the trials ...

    Nothing matters until this manga has Sabaku no Gaara.He alone is worth 5 stars.
  • Mayday
    Call me mainstreamer and I don't care. There are reason why a book can be mainstream, one of them is because the book is good enough to attract people's attention.This review is perhaps totally biased because I love Sasuke too much God, those abs! Artwork: If you talk to me about manga, artwork always comes first. Among those shounen mangas that have become mainstream, Masashi-sensei's artwork is the simple one, the neat one, and just the way I l...

    The quality of this level of story-telling is so superior to anything I've read before. Kishimoto weaves a moral tale that is dynamic, powerful, funny, dramatic ... it has everything one could hope for from any work of fiction one might endeavour to read, at any level. It is no wonder this series has reached the level of popularity that it has because it's so complete. Most importantly, on this day Master Kishimoto has reminded me of why story-te...
  • illias
    My opinion about this manga is heavily biased because I basically grew up with it. This is the only manga that has ever hit me emotionally like a train on multiple occasions. If I could give it 6 stars I would do it in a heartbeat. Of course having said that ... Naruto has some big flaws . There were some huge plot holes that could not be explained. The final fight felt like as if Kishimoto had a good concept of how things should play out, but he...

    (Like a doofus I accidentally deleted my review of this. Fortunately I saved a copy.) "Once appeared a nine tail demon fox, its might tails could crumble mountains and cause tsunamis." "To fight the demon the people assembled all the shinobi of the village. One brave shinobi was able to seal it the demon, but because of that he lost his life. That shinobi was called the 4th Hokage." Welcome to the wonderful world of Naruto. The title character N...

    Now I'm going to review not this volume but Naruto as a whole, 'kay? Get it?So Naruto, what can I say, I'm obsessed with the anime, and since my cousin was like spoiling things, like Sasuke kills Hitachi but Hitachi was not a bad guy blah blah blah...So I'm like Sasuke what? Hitachi what? So my curiosity finally got me and then my cousin recommend this site onemanga wherein you can read manga scans for free and then I started to read not the begi...

    I've read the entire Naruto serie already but i decided that it would be time to re-read it.When Naruto was born, a demon was sealed inside of him by the 4th Hokage to save the Hidden Leaf village. This made Naruto one of the Jinchuuriki. This led Naruto to be ostracized and neglected. He has never had a true friend. The closest thing to a parent/friend is his sensei Iruka.When Naruto graduates from the ninja academy he becomes a Genin (a low cla...

    I never had any plans on reading Naruto. I'd heard about it and to me, it did not sound that great. During the first book, I thought it was really boring. As I got further into the series, I started finding it more enjoyable. The characters are all unique. The drawings aren't bad. The plot is enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone who's addicted to ninja or action stuff.
  • M.J
    I LOVE the Naruto world! The characters, the plot, the backgrounds, everything. And apart from a few 'blah' moments I find no faults with the manga or the anime, although I do prefer the Japanese adaption of the anime, the English voices do not do it for me, bring on the out and out sexy Japanese voices. Masashi Kishimoto is a genius as far as I'm concerned. It's one of those 'you love it or you hate it' things and everybody has their own tastes ...

    This its better than anime for me. This it´s better than anime for me.
  • Petros
    (just for the record, this is a slight alteration of my anime review) Despite being one of the most famous shonen titles around, eventually Naruto doesn’t escape the pitfalls of its genre but it definitely does a better job than most in terms of complexity. The artwork is definitely original in a way, as most areas, especially the ninja villages, are very cool looking in their design. Yet, it is full of anachronisms and irrelevant details. For ...

    I started Naruto with the anime and I'm just in love with the fact that the anime is JUST LIKE the manga. They didn't change a thing!!! HYAAA~H you can't imagine how thankful I am!!Anyway, onto my review. NOTE: This is on the entire series--meaning Naruto Vol. 1-27 (not including the Shippuden series, but anyway . . .).Technically, I first heard about this story in 3rd grade, when one of my friends explained to me that it was about a blonde ninja...
  • Gusfina
    --- Naruto 1-72 ---Plot: Naik turun maju maju mundur maju.Gambar: Ok.Penokohan: Terlalu banyak tokoh yang likeable dan lovable.Oh ya ampun! Saya belum pernah menuliskan review untuk Naruto? Baiklah, kukatakan saja sekarang. Ini salah satu judul komik terpanjang yang pernah saya ikuti. Nama besar Naruto juga sudah tidak perlu dipungkiri lagi diantara para pembaca komik (mungkin). Tentu saja, ada yang suka dan tidak suka. Saya sendiri? Oh-o, tentu ...

    Although I'm completely caught up with the anime, I hadn't read a single chapter of the manga until today. And I freaking love it.Although the anime pretty much mirrors exactly what happens in the manga (at least as far as I am able to tell from this volume), it was like visiting with old friends. Naruto has changed so much over the course of the series. Sakura has changed a lot, also - into, I would argue, an even weaker and more frustrating cha...

    que nostalgia ver al trio junto y tan chiquitos, el momento que conocieron a kakashi y a sakura odiando a naruto, todo quedo taan atrás y bueno aunque ya este avanzada por el anime no puedo no leer el manga de uno de mis animes favoritos y además esta bueno recordar. A ver cuanto me lleva terminarlo....
  • Sofs
    I've decided to finally pick up the Naruto manga, since it has finally reached it's end! I really missed these characters who were so much part of my teenage years.I had completely forgotten how hilarious this was. I identify myself with Naruto a lot, when I was younger I was a troublemaker who loved pranking - mostly to get people's attention.The fact that Naruto has the Nine-Tail fox demon inside of him still gives me the chills.This is such an...
  • Helen
    Ah Naruto. We go back a long time, don't we? I remember watching you on Cartoon Network, an avid fan although I barely understood what was going on. But I knew this; you were different. Disney was changing, churning up absolute rubbish. Even at that age I knew their shows were shit. But you were different. You were fresh, you were exciting, you were something I could enjoy. Something that made me laugh and cry. You were awesome. And I was absolut...
  • Rosie
    Naruto was one of the first shonen mangas I've ever read. It's unique, well thought-out, interesting and you can see a lot of changes in all the characters. That's probably one of my favorite aspects of this series, not including the fact that it's about ninjas.In the beginning, Naruto is a boy that is shunned by his village, because he is the living "vassal" of an evil demon fox that the villagers encased in him to stay safe. Throughout the seri...

    Finalmente riesco a recuperare il primo volume di Naruto! Naruto è un ragazzo che ha un sogno: diventare il più forte ninja del suo villaggio! Ma subito scopriamo che egli nasconde (senza saperlo) un terribile segreto: (view spoiler)[ egli, quando è nato, ha dentro di sé lo spirito di un demone, la volpe a nove code, demone che gli ha imprigionato nell'ombelico il Quarto Hokage, il padre del suo maestro Iruka, che nel farlo è morto. Naruto r...

    The first of 72 volumes (not counting spin-offs), Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto Vol. 1 creates a potent, entertaining and commercial stew of traditional manga concepts. The orphan protagonist is Naruto Uzumaki, whose goal is to become his village's top ninja protector. In this volume, he also discovers his body contains within a demon, the Nine-Tails - a fact known to many of the village's adults (who'd prefer to kill him), but not his classmates.Th...
  • Aja: The Narcoleptic Ninja
    I started this manga when it first came out and I followed it through to the end. It's one of those series that has a special place for me because of the characters. I loved watching them grow over the series and now it's one of those series that I can return to over and over again because it's like visiting with friends.
    this book is about a boy named naruto that likes to fight bad people to save people. I liked this book because it has a lot of funny parts when naruto is trying to show out his awesome skills.I will recommend this book to my cousin Jeovanny because he loves to fight and get beat up.
