Manga Review: Naruto, Vol. 57 (Naruto (Graphic Novels)) [Paperback]

I've finished "Naruto Vol. 57" by Masashi Kishimoto.

Product Description

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for audiences T.

Naruto is a young shinobi with an incorrigible knack for mischief. He's got a wild sense of humor, but Naruto is completely serious about his mission to be the world's greatest ninja!


Madara of the Akatsuki joins the fray on the battlefield. His powerful attacks, and a secret plan, take their toll on the Allied Shinobi Forces. Naruto and Bee rush to help their friends, but the leader of the Cloud Village will do anything to stop Naruto from risking his life — even if he has to fight Naruto to do it!

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.

My Review:

Madara of the Akatsuki has joined the battle and he is determined to capture the eighth and ninth fox tail spirits inside of Bee and Naruto.  He has taken the form of a weird creature and is picking off the  Allied Shinobi Forces with his powerful moves and his secret mission.

Meanwhile the Cloud Village leader is determined to keep Naruto inside the mountain but with the help of Bee they both manage to escape.  During this time Naruto has a talk with the nine-tail fox spirit (we see him trapped inside a cage) inside of himself (I thought this was very funny).


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
