Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura have passed the final test to become junior ninja, and now they want a tougher assignment than daycare.

Aksiyonu iyice artmaya başlamışken, neden duralım ki?
Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura have became junior ninjas and they want to do a job that is not just babysitting something more exiting. The three get a job to protect a old bridge builder from being as sainted by Zabuza. This book has a lot of battles and fights and blood. The ninjas meet lots of foes on their journey to the bridge builders destination. I enjoyed the fighting scenes and the suspense of the battles. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys lots of fighting in graphic novels. Overal ...more

I can't beleive that naruto becomes the nine tailed fox because sauske only got knocked out by haku. Why do they need to protect tanzuna because he could just fight them with wood. But he probably does not know that. Can't they all get along like friends. I predict that in the last book everyone teams up against orochimaru and his minons in a battle. I think that naruto is going to save everyone in the village.I can't beleive that naruto becomes the nine tailed fox because sauske only got knocke ...more

Aww yeah! Naruto is PISSED and I cannot wait for him to unleash the demon inside!!

(view spoiler)

Naruto, Vol. 3: Bridge of Courage is a well-rounded volume that is full of exciting action, heartwarming lessons, and perfectly timed hilarious moments to keep things from getting too dark. Naruto's personality really shines through and proves there is a deep soul hiding behind that adorably obnoxious facade.

This book is about when Kakashi sensei recovers from his fight with Zabuza. He also teaches his cell to climb trees with just their feet. Sakura is the first to reach the top of the tree due to her excellent chakra(ninja energy)control.Then Sasuke, and finally, Naruto. And as Tazuna finishes the bridge, we find that Haku, the dude who took Zabuza, was Zabuza's apprentice, and just saved him from Kakashi and his awesome skills. Zabuza is also recovering from both the serious beating he took from ...more

Synopsis: I suspect that if you're reading this blog, you have some idea of who the fuck Naruto is, but in case you don't, here's a brief synopsis. Naruto is a 12 year old boy, who is the reincarnation of the nine-tailed fox that nearly destroyed the Leaf village, where Naruto lives. All of the adults fear him, and so they scorn him, and their children, not knowing the truth, scorn him and make fun of him. He has therefore become the equivalent of a ninja class clown. In short,

This manga continues the adventures of Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and their trainer Kakashi as they battle evil and develop their Ninja skills. Naruto wants to become the Hokage or leader of his village and so has a very competitive spirit with the rest of his team; however, he and Sasuke and Sakura are slowly becoming close friends. This book opens as Kakashi works to train his team on how to channel their chakra or spiritual energy in order to learn new combat skills. Meanwhile a ninja assassin n ...more

Recommends it for: manga lovers, DBZ fans

In this thrid volume we see a bit more fighting, blood, and character development. And in shonen comics, those are all very good things.

It's shown that even the great Kakashi can make mistakes, that the main character doesn't always excel at everything he attempts and even fails a few times, and that not all victims of abuse are messed up psychologically.

These are things one should know (and probably do) but I really liked it that Kishimoto put it in there. Very few mangas go into flaws like th

I'm really enjoying reliving the series through the manga. The artwork is great. I am reminded with every volume of the emotional content of the story - the depth that makes this one of my favorite series. Also, I'm really enjoying reading Kishimoto's little side notes about character design, etc.!

A note on the translation: a few of the translations rankled, like Sasuke's fire-style jutsu being translated as "Blaze of Glory" and Kakashi being referred to as the "Mirror Ninja," even though he is
In another world, ninja are the ultimate power - and in the village of Konohagakure live the stealthiest ninja in the world.

But twelve years ago Konohagakure was attacked by a fearsome threat - a nine-tailed fox demon which claimed the life of the Hokage, the village champion.

Today, peace has returned, and a troublemaking orphan named Uzumaki Naruto is struggling to graduate from h Ninja academy. His goal: to become the next Hokage.

But unknown to Naruto and his classmates, within him is a terrif
The book Bridge of Courage is a real life changer. It taught me life is a valuable thing and if you love something protect it with all your life.

Vol.3: Climbing trees and ninja jargon. So much goddamn ninja jargon. The only explanation I need is, "I don't know. Ninja stuff." when it comes to why that can use magical techniques and climb tress without using their hands. Just say ninja stuff.

I also find the fight scenes to be really jumbled and hard to follow, which is kind of a big deal in shonen manga, where fight scenes are kind of a big deal. I also find myself completely uncaring about the characters other than Kakashi, and I only li
In vol. 3 Naruto and the Gang train to get ready for Zabuza. Of course, it isn't going to be a piece of cake. In fact, not even the townspeople won't help. Looks like Naruto and the rest are on their own........... With that, the battle of the bridge begins!

Folytatódnak az események. Igazán cselekmény dús kötet. Naruto-ék eddzenek, épül a híd, és jönnek a bajok. Naruto-t egy pillanat alatt meglehet kedvelni. Sasuke-ról túl sok mindent nem lehet itt tudni, de a későbbiekben nem lesz a szívem csücske. – Nem is értem, hogy mások mit vannak úgy oda érte… De azt majd azoknál a köteteknél bővebben kifejtem. Sakura… Hát ő sem kedvelem igazán. Állandóan Saskuke-kun így, Sasuke-kun úgy. Naruto meg mehet amerre lát.

Naruto is getting more and more skilled in his training, but he definitely learns faster in battle. Also, he is still lacking in people skills, but he has some personal growth in this department while dealing with Inari.

Our troop of young ninjas are taught that in order to truly protect something you love, you must be willing to die for it. And we are left with a cliffhanger that forces Naruto to lay his life on the line.

I love Kakashi and his quiet strength!! In comparison to Naruto's zest for

This one's 3.5 since well, it did get a little better. Art was all over the place but mostly for the fight scenes. And wow, that fight. A little better in this volume.

Naruto and Sasuke's friendship is fucking heartbreaking. I forgot how painfully this series was and I'm a sobbing mess.

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
This has been my favourite so far. The training sequence, the strengths and weakness of the junior ninjas of Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura and, of course, the battle and where it brings Naruto. I especially liked that Kishimoto actually gave something to Sakura. In the first two volumes she's simply the cute girl that has a crush on Sasuke and who Naruto has a crush on but in Bridge of Courage she gets to be better than the boys at something and is given a more active role.

My only complaint is that

I like how the author shows the character feels about the other characters.
the author did the book very good i enjoyed it because I'm a comic specialist . I really like the part where Naruto had to kick the bad guys. Naruto has to work with his other two helpers Saskue,and Sakura have to fight and have to learn how to fight from their teacher and the have to catch the bells.

I recommend this book to the people who like action books and enjoy comic books that entertain you.
Well, my Naruto journey continues.

While it's still not overwhelmingly amazing, this one did have enough twists and turns to keep me guessing and thoroughly interested. I'm not sure WHY, yet, but it's rather addicting stuff - like... say... the Adventures in Odyssey TV show. It's not as good as the quality stuff (AiO radio show/more interesting manga) but it's still so amusing that you just keep reading.

It'll get better, I'm sure. It has to get better.
Naruto Vol. 3 The Bridge of Courage by Masashi Kishimoto is an action-packed thriller. Naruto is still on the mission to protect Tazuna. They thought Zabuza was dead, but actually his apprentice Haku saved him. Now, they are training even harder than before. Then they meet up with Zabuza and Haku and fight. I recommend this book to young readers and people who like heroes and action. I loved this book because it was an easy read and saw what a true hero does.
