Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - KLIATT Review
This volume contains 75 full-color images from Naruto, the popular manga series that totals 27 volumes (with more on the way). A brightly lit Naruto appears on the front cover; his rival Sasuke graces the back cover clad in dark, somber colors. Most of the images are from the magazine Shonen Jump; some manga covers are included. Each image includes a short annotation by Kishimoto, Naruto's creator; these are located at the back of the book and include a small portrait as well as the page number where the larger, full-page image can be found (there are several two-page images, also). These annotations are non-technical and detail the image's back-story and what the author thinks of the final result. There is also a guide to how Kishimoto draws Naruto, which includes the various pens, pencils and markers used, as well as a short interview (which I would have liked to be longer). If Naruto is popular at your library, The Art of Naruto is definitely worth purchasing. Most of the images are Shonen Jump and manga covers, so the characters pose a lot. Many Naruto regulars make appearances here, including Sakura, Jiraiya, Gamabuntu, Gaara, Kakashi with his Ninja dogs, and Orochimaru. If you know who Gamabunta is you should either purchase this volume for yourself or see a doctor. The Art of Naruto contains imagery that may be frightening to very small children. Highly recommended for libraries where Naruto is popular. Age Range: Ages 12 to 18. REVIEWER: George Galuschak (Vol. 42, No. 1)

Meet the Author


Author/artist Masashi Kishimoto was born in 1974 in rural Okayama Prefecture, Japan. After spending time in art college, he won the Hop Step Award for new manga artists with his manga Karakuri ("Mechanism"). Kishimoto decided to base his next story on traditional Japanese culture. His first version of Naruto, drawn in 1997, was a one-shot story about fox spirits; his final version, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, quickly became the most popular ninja manga in Japan.

This artbook is really amazing. It has tons of full page and color pieces as well as an interview with Kishimoto and a walkthrough on his art process that shows how he created the cover page. If you enjoy Naruto, I highly recommend you purchase this art book!

I didn't buy the book, but really really wanted to get it, but I bought the Naruto Fan Book and the anime profile books for episodes #1-37 and episodes #38-80 instead. I did sit and page through this book, in awe at the illustrations. I plan on getting it the next time I go to the bookstore along with starting on the naruto manga series....I've seen the episodes but also want to read the manga too.

Worth the money. It's fully of many complete and beautiful works. Great for drawing reference and Naruto fans alike. Two thumbs up.

This is an excellent book for any Naruto fan! I already own the original Japanese version so I know you will be in for a treat. All of the artwork is great for reference or just to look at. You won't be disappointed!
