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.

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.

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.

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.

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,...more

This being my first Manga book; I feel I may need to give a different one a chance. The reading backwards did not bother me as much as I thought it would; I just couldn't get into the story line. That being said I can see how 4th to 8th graders would totally get into it. It has action, humor, fighting, and isn't a long read. The main character Naruto reminds me of the little brother in the family trying to be like his older siblings. He seems to have a lot to learn but hasn't realized it yet. Sa...more

The hold-density for Naruto at TRL isn't constant, and for some reason, it doesn't steadily decrease over volume number either. So I've got volumes 5 and 7-9 already, but 3 and 6 are apparently in intense demand (and 4 only slightly less so), and they're going to want the later ones back before I have a chance to read the earlier ones. So I opted to be a dick and skim it at the Danger Room.

Thoughts on Naruto in general: It didn't really grab me hard in the first few volumes, but it's a slick and...more

I read about that in the book, Naruto wanted to become the next hokage set his training with Sasuke,Sakura, and Master Kakashi but as he set out to protect their old bridge builder Tazuna being threaned by evil millionare Gato has hired Zabuza a ruthless ninja assassin and a mass murderer calls himself a ''The Demon''. Zabuza specializes water and mist and his mission to stop Tazuna from completing his newest bridge. Zabuza's assistant Haku a mysterious orphan sets out and terminate people' live...more

Haku's was by far the saddest death in naruto. He gave his life for the one he cared about the most. Sacrificing his own soul because he loved Zabuza. And after Naruto got under his skin and he broke, Zabuza realized how much he truly loved and cared for Haku as well. And even though killing and total peace of shit Gato didn't completely redeem Zabuza for all the evil in his life, hopefully it absolved him of enough sin to be with Haku in the afterlife. R.I.P. Haku & Zabuza

Elég hamar végeztem ezzel a kötettel. A kilenc farkú róka ereje is megmutatkozott egy kicsit. Későbbiekben megkedveltem őt is.
Az kötet közepét megkönnyeztem, mert igazán sajnáltam Haku-t. És végre Zabuza is észhez tért valamennyire. Hála égnek Gatou arra a sorsa jutott, amit én is szántam neki. És ezzel véget is ért a 7-es csapat küldetése.
És most következik a chunnin vizsga. Anime-ben ezt is láttam egy párszor, és igazán jól szórakoztam rajta.

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

Starting off with Chapter 28: Nine Tails!!
Thrown into the middle of the battle of Naruto vs. Haku. At the end of the last volume we are assaulted with the semi-death of Sasuke. This brings on an emergence of the Demon fox. Unknown to Naruto's generation is that the Nine Tails is sealed into Naruto. This trauma sends Naruto over the edge to fight Haku on a serious scale.
Meanwhile Kakashi battles it out with Headhunter Zabuza of the Mist. This is a brilliant battle, and still to this day I stare...more

i really like this book because the way the author countines the series with the last book it's like if it's the same book but different cover. this book was about Naruto becoming a hero and protecting his partner Sasuke which the boy does the miorrior trick like awlways he turned into the nine tail demon but only one tail. It's really cool because the boy goes and tkes a death for his master and the master took vengce for her and then he kills everyone in his way that didn't send poeple to kil...more

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...
what is
responsibility,
respect,
kindness,
friendship...

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

Massive fight scence. Massive. The end move Kakashi attempts was just brutal.

Naruto's strength is not that he's the best ninja ever, and I'm not convinced he'll ever be a ninja master, his strength is in what he'll do for his friends. When he puts others before himself he can tap into some raw power. He was willing to do what was needed to avenge Sasuke, even though he doesn't really like him. I think if the three of them (Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura) can actually work together as a team they'd be...more

Naruto vol. 4 by Masashi Kishimoto is a quick, easy, and great book and I recommend it to young readers. This book is about Naruto and the gang fighting against Haku and Zabuza. They are fighting for their lives and Haku is fighting for Zabuza because Haku is like a tool to Zabuza and Haku knows that and will live with it because that is her purpose in life. I like this book because it has action, it has courage, and it is an easy read.

This book is about Naruto meeting Sasuke, another shinobi from his village. Sasuke is a brillant young ninja and he is often hated by Naruto through jealousy since Naruto fails to keep up with him. Naruto meets Sakura, the girl he likes however Sakura falls in love with Sasuke thus causing Naruto hating him even more. They become a team under the policy of ninja school and from that point on, they would encounter more enemies (evil ninjas).
Josh dees
The conflict is that two people name Haku and Zabuza are trying to prevent the humans from building a walk way.Naruto, Sasuke and Kakashi are helping the humans. They are fighting for the humans. As the book went on some one died. Somebody sacrificed him self so the walk way would get done.
I liked the book. It has a lot of fighting. I would recommend it to anybody who likes fighting or Naruto games.
Sara
The last volume left us with a cliffhanger with Naruto deciding that he will risk his life for his friends. There was a very heartbreaking death in this volume, and it really came as a surprise to me. These volumes have been action packed and silly at times- but to have such a heartbreaking moment was shocking. Such emotion was evoked with little backstory. I was very impressed!
Sara Bennett
The first 1/2 I flew through...it was very emotional and very good. I feel really close to the characters already :) So I loved a little over the first half. Then the next adventure comes up and some of the introduction panels were a little confusing. Like in the last chapter or something. But still, this is a really good, fun manga and I'm really liking it!
Marcus
what i like about this book is that in most of the scenes theres action, and i love action.but its not gust the action that i like, i also like the way the book makes u feel the pain the the character is feeling.one day the book mad me feel a crazy rage because naruto went beast mode and went off on this boy that almost killed sauaka.
Georgina Howlett
This volume always gets to me. Zabuza was made out to be such an evil guy, but then, in the end, I think you get to see the true side of him which he maybe subdued because he never had the opportunity to let it out. I don't know what it is about this one, but I really do love it and I think it's a great volume for character development.
Jonathan Diaz
This book is about Naruto and his teammates who go on a mission to protect a bridge builder. On their journey they have to defend themselves from a professional murderer who kills for money. This volume of the series is very exciting because Naruto and his teammates finally prove themselves to be a great team.

David Ye
The rich land owner sent out two road ninjas to kill the bridge builder before he builds the bridge of hope. So now naruto and his comrades faces two extreme strong ninja. I like this part of the story because it show how courages naruto and his team is but i think after this they will give up
