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.

When I first picked up this book, I simply couldn't put it down. I at first only watched the Naruto T.V. show, but then I decided to get the manga instead, for watching it was getting old. I didn't put this book down until I was done with it! This book is OUTSTANDING and is a book for everyone.

This is the best book i have read. Im one of the few girls that read this in my school, and yes im the one that showed them all and got them all started. The number im on in the series is 41 i think. So as you see by the number im on the book is really great, but for thoses who read this fast (like me i read this in like 1 to 2 hours) the cost will be a lot if u buy many at a time. But the cost is "ok" for how greatly amazing the book is. Hope you love the book as much as i do. -hinatabunny

This book is about a boy named Naruto. He was born in a ninja village named the leaf village. Unlike regular kids Naruto is special and for this reason he is feared by all of the adults in the village. The reason why he is special is because when he was born his farther sealed a dangerous demon named the nine tailed fox inside of him. The reason why his farther done this because if he didn't do this then the whole leaf village could have been destroyed. So instead of a hero, Naruto is an out cast because of the nine tailed fox demon inside of him. People think that since the beast is inside of him then it could break out of Naruto and destroy the village. For this he wants to prove to every one that he could be the best and he wants to gain respect by becoming the village Hokaga (This is the village strongest ninja and leader.) Is Naruto ready for this challenge?

I haven't read the naruto books in sooo long, I didn't realize what I've been missing out on! Naruto is the best manga ever. Period.

Naruto is a totally cool manga! It's got mind bending fights and funny characters like Rock Lee. Even though the show IS funnier, the books are worth picking up because you get to learn little tidbits about the creator Masashi Kishimoto!

Naruto is a good series about a kid that has had an evil spirit sealed inside him, and everybody is afraid to even look at him. But nobody knows he¿s a hero because the hokaga ¿leader of their village¿ actually says if Naruto hadn¿t become the nine tail fox the village wouldn¿t be there. So he grows up and is becoming a ninja it¿s a really interesting book and you should read it to see what Naruto becomes. So right now he is pulling crazy stunts and is getting in a lot of trouble. So the hokaga tells him to apply as a ninja, and he does but there¿s just one little problem there is an assessment to prove you can become a ninja and well he fails seven times. Who fails seven times I think this applies to me as a person because I have done something over and over again and still got it wrong. So now he is a ninja and of course he acts like he¿s the best. So he meets this kid and apparently he is the hokaga¿s grandson. So everybody treats him like royalty. But naruto treats him like a stubborn brat ¿because he is one¿ So he tutors him because the kid actually thinks he¿s cool for treating him like a person instead of the honorable grandson of the 3rd hokaga. So now he has to meet his teacher or sensei so they have to explain how they are what they like to do and there hobby. So I have to say that this is the best series I ever read.

Naruto volume 1 is the start of a new series by critically acclaimed creator Masashi Kishomoto. The manga (Japanese comic books read left to right) following the adventures of a twelve year boy (Naruto Uzamaki) and his friends. Twelve years ago a demon called the nine tailed fox attacked the village hidden in the leaves. A brave warrior the fourth hokage (Translated: fire shadow) [leader of the village hidden in the leaves] sealed the fox in his newly born son Naruto. Naruto has been shunned his elders despise him for being this destructive power. If the immense chakra (spiritual energy) flowing through him doesn't flow out and if the jutsu (a technique created by concentrating one or more of the five times of chakra together) doesn't hold than the Fox will be unleashed again. His friend, mentor, and teacher Iruka takes him out for ramen. Naruto doesn't know that he contains the Nine Tailed Fox until after failing the ninja academy one of his teachers told him that if he mastered a jutsu from a scroll of forbidden jutsus he would pass. The entire village scrambles to find him. Iruka finds and protects him from another ninja named Mezuki. Mezuki tells Naruto he is the Nine Tailed Fox. He finally masters multi shadow clone jutsu, the jutsu he needed to pass. He is placed in cell seven with Sakura Hanuro and Sasuke Uchiha of the massacred Uchiha clan. Under the guidance of there sensei Kakashi Hatake "The Copy Ninja" who happens to be chronically late they will carry out missions. They engage in a practice battle in which the three of them have to get two bells. Sasuke happens to get close to a bell but fails to hold on. He is positioned in the ground. Naruto tries to steal the reward of lunch. But gets tied up.

The first Naruto book is GREAT! Only thing is I am a girl, and when I read it w/ my guy friends, it was a little awkward when Naruto does the sexy jutsu 'ninja centerfold', and herum jutsu. But besides that it is awesome, so is the rest of the series. I highly recommend it.

Naruto Viz Media LLC, 2008, 192 pgs, $11.99 By: Masashi Kishimoto ISBN-10: 1421519747 What would you do if your village hated you for having a demon sealed in your body? In Masashi Kishimoto¿s Naruto there is a boy who has a demon in his body! Sakura, Sasuke, and Kakashi-sensei are on the same team as Naruto. One day they have a C ranked mission, to escort a bridge builder back to his village. Little did they know that the bridge builder was hiding something. Then, they had a ambush not too far from the hidden leaf village! Will Naruto and his team survive or will they be done?! I love this book! I just didn¿t want to put it down. I recommend this book to people who love Japan, ninjas, action, or fantasy. And don¿t fret there is a whole series of these.- Toni Javier

Naruto is a great Manga for almost everyone! Adding Action, Adventure, Humor, Some sad stuff, and even a little romance. If you like graphic novels or Manga, then you'll love Naruto! :3

Naruto is a breath of freash air from the usual cookie cutter manga that displays bulging muscles and little or no plot. This is a definite page turner that keeps you hungry for more!

This is a fantastic manga. It's witty and silly and absolutely hilarious. My favorite character is Kakashi because his hair is SWEET and he's totally cocky and awesome. Everyone should read this!

I have read Shonen Jump since it first came out, and I have read Naruto since then (Which was before the paperback Manga was released.)and I have never been dissatisfied. This is a great manga and i believe everyone should have a chance to either read the books or watch the show on cartoonnetwork.
