I will not use fancy gifs in this review. One sentence shall be said: I have never cried this hard in my life.
I loved this :D It's a very dark and slightly disturbing look into Itachi's and Sasuke's past. Also it takes a look into the past of the Uchida clan. I thought it was very dramatic, and the deaths in this manga were ones I already knew would happen. It was still a bit melancholy and sad when said character lost his life (almost a spoiler :P ) There is a major turning point at the end of the manga (one I also knew would happen.) I loved the way everything was drawn, with so much expression and em ...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

so it is not just a manga it is a way of living... The sprite
I have always been obsessed with Itachi Uchiha. Everything about him was memorable. Including his tragic death. By far one of the most shocking ends to the life of Itachi Uchiha, and how one poke on the forehead could answer many heart-warming questions.

The single greatest volume in the Naruto series imo. Sad that after this, the story started going downhill, what with the Pain arc and the Great Ninja War. However, the aftermath non-considering, the shock value, emotional impact and awesomeness of this volume can't be denied. This is the pinnacle of storytelling Masashi Kishimoto achieved in his manga.

As we read earlier, Uchiha Sasuke, one of the last two remaining members of the legendary Uchiha clan, left his home village few years ago thereb

I can't believe Itachi died! :(
He died for such good reasons. He reminds me of Dumbledore in a way. Like Dumbledore had so many things planned out from the very start and most of it played out the way he planned it.


I did like him smiling near the end, and I love Sasuke's mangekyo sharigan. It looks like an atom.
I've already seen this part in the anime, so I knew what was coming, but oh, it gets me every time. This is officially my favorite volume so far. Without giving away anything, Sasuke learns a great deal about himself, his clan, The Leaf, and his brother, Itachi that really changes him overall. A great read and wonderfully done.

Naruto is a VERY GOOD comic to me. The book is about a kid named Naruto, he had a beast inside him, and it's called Nine-Tails. The whole village starting to abandoned him, he had no friend and he was really lonely. He always showing what he could do and he keep messing around to gather attentions from the village but they always insults and mocking him. His dad was a Hokage, a Hokage is a person who lead and protect the village. To protect the whole village, Naruto's dad sealed the Nine-Tails i ...more
This book is amazing, because there is a whole lot of action and sasuke figures out the truth about his brother. Also, he meets an unexpected guest who helps him in some way and other than that this is a good book where you see who's stronger and who's been good all along.
Love it!! Wow that's the most shocking thing that ever happened in the naruto or any anime series.. So basically sasuke killed Itachi for nothing!! Ahaha love the irony in this but can't believe sasuke sweet mom is part of it..

I thought is sad how Itachi just died and Saskue finds out the truth. I think it's crazy in the end that Saskue wants to destory Konha(can't spell!) I hope it's only to kill Danzo, no the others!
Karl Kindt
Sure, it seems like a silly kids' ninja series at first, but it is turning out to be deeper and more intricately told than even THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
Still crying....watched the anime, read the manga on this part *ugh*...
Just cannot stop crying, it's straight on the feels *sobs*
Amazing volume with a shocking revelation about Konoha's past.
The best manga volume in Naruto- with tons of Sasuke action!
This volume comes with an apology from the mangaka which is kinda sweet and very Japanese I think. he apologises for the extra length which has increased the cost of the tankobon ... Y450. Now have I spent Y1500 I think he should have someone apologise for price gouging but I digress. Sasuke and his brother are still having family squabbles whilst they beat the living suitcase out of each other and Itachi takes his brothers eyes ... or does he? Meanwhile Madara keeps the Konoha Shinobi occupied ...more
Best one yet.
The book Naruto Vol. 43 by Masashi Kishimoto is about this character named Sasuke who has found his brother and is fighting him because he killed the whole itatche clan which is there clan. He killed his brother. when he woke up he was in this cave and there was this man there. he started talking about Sasuke brother and saying that he knew him better then Sasuke. He then told a story about him and how Sasuke brother fit into it all. and when he killed every one even his parents and lovers he co ...more

He is on his quest for vengeance so at the begining he fights a warrior called Itachi.At the begining is where there is lots of action and in mangas it usually starts from where it is left off.Itachi is also surprised because sasuke has new ...more
Book: Naruto #43
Kishimoto’s purpose in writing his book, Naruto Vol. 43, is to let his and her audience be entertained by the nice pace fighting action in his book. It’s entertaining because the book is interesting to people that like reading graphic novel and or Manga. Have lots of pictures that get the reader’s attention. Also there are many volumes of Naruto if you enjoy the first volumes. This book is also nice to read when bored. Lastly this book is kind of weird from other books because
