It's really easy to get sucked into this volume. A few revelations about Itachi and Sasuke come out here, including the nature of getting the Mangekyo sharingan.

(view spoiler)

What a mindfuck.

I keep tearing up.

AWW! This book is all about saskue's past.
It explains what happened before and after the day the uchiha clan was wiped out. It was sad and sweet to see the relationship between Saskue and his brother Itachi. Although Sakue loved Itachi a lot; he has a grudge against him for leaving him without a family, and for changing from being a harmless and caring brother to a power hungry murderer (who killed the entire uchiha clan except his brother.)

It's back. I thought Naruto had drifted a bit over the past few volumes but it is back, this time with Sasuke's back story. Sasuke is trying to kill Naruto, but why? Ah. I hope that this story arc remains tight like it is so far.

So in the series, you get backstory. Sometimes its okay and other times you're like, that's the reason, really? But with this one, it one of the better ones. Yeah, I get now why Sasuke's broodingness. And why his big bro is a little creepy. Good volume.

Definitely one of my favorite volumes so far and probably one of my favorites overall.

Jumping in on Chapter 217: For Someone Important..!!!
Gaara of the Sand Village comes to the aid of Rock, Lee who is fighting the sick member of the Sound Five, Kimimaro. This ninja has a Kekkiginkai (Family Bloodline Limit/ Superpower what have you,) that enables him to expel bone daggers. Then regenerating the missing bone instantly. This to my mind brings up very interesting scientific hypothesis.
Anyhow it's a fight between the invincible shield and the perfect spear. Information is also colle

I like it because of its morals and the different action that is there in the book and I also have read most of the books in this collection and I look for to finishing the selection. I think that the book is really full of action and comedy which is really fun to read. I think that the manga s going really wel and i like reading more of it.

*Sigh* I can't tell you why I love Naruto as much as I do, but the narrative really isn't half bad. I'm surprised myself at how much I actually feel for the characters, Masashi Kishimoto truly does a splendid job.

The long-winded, sappy, drama of the Uchiha clan. This volume takes a severe veer in the opposite direction to explain the downfall of the clan, Sasuke's perpetual moaning angst, and why Itachi is such a jerk. A big momentum killer after fighting the sound ninja for the last four volumes.

Loved it so much! The story is brilliant !
However I highly doubt itachi actually did that. I have my own theories but I don't wanna look stupid in front of those who already know what happened ! But if events actually took just as they are from Sasuke's perspective then I will be truly disappointed !

Itachi didn't tell him the truth so that Sasuke can grow stronger ! But why ? idk.

Sasuke has been annoying everyone so far. But his actions are understandable too.

Backstory of the Uchiha clan comes in abundance in this volume. Sasuke's story is so interesting to me. I love finding out more and more about why he is so bent on revenge. Of course, having watched the show, I'm aware of the turnout and it sheds new light on some things revisiting this and knowing what happens. Amazing.

I'm really beginning to hate Sasuke. Every time he is in one of these volumes, I'm immediately disinterested and want him killed off.

This installment really didn't have that much to it. Perhaps if I had not seen the anime first and knew the story already, it would have been more interesting for me.

Basically, it starts with Naruto being egged into fighting Sasuke. I loved that part, their relationship dynamic was great. I suppose that is what draws me to this story so much: the relationships and experiences the characters have with each other. They all feel so real. It is a testament to Kishimoto's ability as an author when h

I must say it is and it will forever be(fingers crossed) my favorite Manga novel read.

the way Masashi Kishimoto described the characters is just awesome, you get to see them growing up, becoming responsible... powerful...

and it is not just characters,

The plot itself is so much bigger... u simply can't get enough of it. and add to that,

u get more than just entertainment, you learn...

so it is not just a manga it is a way of living... The sprite

First of all, I didn't buy this book. I got if from one of my friends at school. I've been waiting for this for a long time and when I got it, I read it in a day. This one was very interesting. I am really into this kind of art. If you are looking for a suitable book to read at bedtime with your children, this is not one of them. It' chronicles the life of a trouble-maker in a ninja academy and there are 80 long, amazing, breath-taking books in this series. I can't wait to read all of the rest. ...more

I just read a book called Naruto vol.25. It is about a boy named Naruto he is trying to save his allie who didn't want to be saved they were in a battlefield.

I liked this book because it has a lot of fighting and action in it and I love action movies, books. I also like it because I am a visual person and this book is a graphic novel. I would recommend this book to any visual people because it has a lot of pictures.

Lacerante ed emozionante, il duello tra Naruto e Sasuke delinea due personaggi titanici all'interno del manga.
Non in scena, ma ben presente sullo sfondo, la spaventosa figura di Itachi, personaggio chiave dell'intera storia.

Lo scontro ( per la verità ) viene un pochettino sacrificato, preferendo lo sviluppo di flashback funzionali nel delineare gli Uciha e lo Sharingan.
Raymond Jimenez
This was a magnificent book. Overwhelming if not. I love the action between both brothers itachi and sasuke. Theres still much i dont know but itachi did something that must have angered sasuke and im hopping to see a sequel to this book. I believe people can relate to this book because you want your brother to be proud of you not a major dissapointment.

I learned that naruto is the best character to me and he is type of person who never gives up and always stay strong, I wish I can be like him one day, even if he dont know you he would still help you
