Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief and, sealed within him, a strange, formidable power. His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure!
Naruto finally finds Sasuke! But Sasuke won't return to Konoha without a fight. This time it might take all of Team Kakashi to bring him down--and bring him back.

About 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 volume finds the series hitting full charge as we learn more about the main cast and their dispositions and natures. After catching a few episodes of the anime last year I put Naruto in the same category of Dragonball Z, a category not too much in polish in my eyes, but I found myself happily wrong and so far enjoying this series as I continue reading it. Naruto is action, it has comedy that catches you off guard when it appears, and it has originality. It also has a lead character that is not perfect in any way but no matter what is focused on his goals.C.
