There comes a time in every ninja's training when he must put aside his morals and face the truth: ninjas are tools for killing. For Naruto, seeing Sasuke dead, that time is now.

Explosion of rage!

And then the story arc takes a truly dark and disturbing turn, turning what has begun as a half-joke ninja comic with a few serious moments into a desperate gamble with truly pathos-inducing moments.

Did I cry again? Yes, I'm afraid I did, and I cried at all the precisely planned-out moments, as if I was a puppet on a string.

Kishimoto lined them all up and knocked them all down perfectly. I cried at Haku's dream of being useful, no matter what the cost. I cried at his sacrifice

Poor, pretty, crazy Haku. I feel sorry for him.

I'm not sure about this message though: You can be a murdering asshole with a seriously questionable relationship with a young child and all it takes to redeem yourself at the end is to kill someone who is even more of a scumbag than you are. That can't be right.

I absolutley love Haku.
You people who hate Naruto might think I'm stupid, but I cried at the scene where Haku died, and the part where he remembered his past. some may have forgotten Haku by now, but he will always remain in my heart.
12 year old Naruto Uzumaki is an orphan with a nine-tailed demon fox sealed inside of him. Despite this, he's determined to become the strongest ninja in his village and earn the title of Hokage. Action scenes are good and interspersed with enough dialogue as to not get repetitive or boring. I like that the story focuses on a troubled main character -- not because a troubled main character is new, but because Naruto reacts like many kids do when they aren't given enough attention, and it's refre ...more

This book is a manga about the episode when naruto and sasuke fight haku(boy) may look like girl but its a boy. while sasuke and naruto fought haku kakashi had to deal with zabuza which is haku's partner. In this manga it was hard to fight haku because she was to fast and strong for naruto and sasuke but they still outsmarted him. Zabuza died because he got stabbed like 12 times on his back.

In this world of the shinobi there are only those who use, and those who are used. We shinobi are simply tools.
This was a line in this manga spoken by Zabuza and something which was rather true of what i had read so far in this manga. At first glance you see Zabuza as a heartless killer whose only interest is killing and earning money. He has no feelings for Haku, his apprentice who throws away his life to protect him. The story of Haku is really sad one but something which does not bring tears

Man the end of the Zabuza/Haku arc always gets to me. It's hands down one of the most beautiful and tragic moments in the series for me but I love it anyway. Anyway, v. 4 leaves one arc and enters another. It is time for the chunin exams and things are really picking up in terms of character. All of my favorites are showing up. We have the sand nin, Gaara, Temari and Kankuro. Lee, Neji, Tenten and of course the Konoha 7 as always. I love Lee's introduction, being such a BAMF-- I love Lee in gene ...more

The Haku and Zabuza arc is where the story takes a more serious turn and we get to see the main characters in action. The impressive aspect here is really the villains though. They aren't just token bad guys that you want to see killed. Haku and Zabuza stand out enough as characters to carry on through the rest of the series even though they were only around for a few books. They're likable even as enemies and they really help push the story forward.

I know why it's important, but the story with

Overall Rating: B
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,

I love Naruto because it is entertaining in every possible way. The art is superb, the action-packed story is exciting, it teaches many great life lessons, and it always manages to make me smile. Naruto, Vol. 4: The New Opponents does not disappoint. The battle picks up right from the ending of the last volume and ends in a gut-wrenching moment that nearly brought me to tears.

So while reading this I wrote some random notes ... They maybe won't make any sense but I'm still putting them on here ...

so naruto is the first one to ever win over the jutsu that Haku has
why? because Sasuke sacrificed himself fo rhim
and he did it with the help of the nine tails wow

my father killed my mother and then he tried to kill me
he killed her because of her blood line wow
and then he killed his own father

Haku's story is actually quite sad, how he ended up with Zabuza, and not wanting t

I love this book, Naruto and his team run across an elite ninja that they thought was already defeated. Naruto's team leader kakashi takes on the elite ninja, While Naruto and Saskue take on the elite ninja's partner. Naruto and Saskue have their hands full, the ninja they are fighting is very strong, but when Naruto thinks Saskue is dead he loses it and the nine tails chakra gives him power and he beats the ninja while Kakashi beats the Elite ninja.

It's the day team 7 are fighting Zabuza and Haku, Kakashi was fighting against Zabuza. Naruto and Sasuke are fighting Haku, Sasuke almost died and Naruto got mad, then Naruto used his nine tails chakra and punched Haku. He wanted Naruto to kill him but Haku sensed that his master was about to die, so he teleported in front of Zabuza and got killed by Kakashi.

It was a good book because I loved the fighting and how it made the main person developed more.
It made him developed under so much pressure. It gave us a clue of naruto's power and his secert.
