Well, finally we get to see the fight which all of us want to see and it turns out that when this fight is getting interesting, it is short?concluded? but well who cares? The real fight has just begun...... the next volume will be interesting, I can not wait to read it.

Sasuke's fight was a bit interesting, but way too short. Gaara's creepy, of course.

What really has me going is the big surprise! Let's get the big show on the way!

A much faster and engaging read than previous books. The action flowed very nicely with wicked cool entrances by certain characters and someones psycho trigger being pushed. Also Shikamaru being Shikamaru. And Shino being underrated but able to sneak around. This book is more about Sasuke in a way, showing how much he has changed. And he has in this book, going from a somewhat desperate, cocky but still rookie edge, to still cocky but much more focused and badass. Naruto also has a moment or two ...more

Okay, this is probably one of my favorites. No it has nothing to do with my favorite crazy desert villain sort of, misunderstood character over here. Okay maybe a little. Well, maybe it has to do with well, that looks like a lot is happening in this one. Story picking up and it is awesome.

I think this volume was mainly focused on a fight of supremacy between Kakashi and Guy and their students. For example, think about Guy and Lee's reactions to Sasuke's amazing Taijutsu moves. However, it's always apparent that Guy takes this rivalry more seriously than Kakashi ever does. Partly because Kakashi is kind of conceited, and maybe for all the right reasons lol.

As for Lee, I believe no one can deny the power of his character. I mean think about the pain he has endured to come this far

Kicking off with Chapter 109: Leaf, Dance!
The battle between Temari and Shikamaru is over after Shikamaru surrenders. To the eyes of the examiners this is a good show of leadership and brilliance. The next match up is between Gaara of the Sand and Uchiha, Sasuke. The crowd grows restless with the wait. This is caused by Kakashi's perpetual tardiness, but just as Sasuke is about to be disqualified, they poof into the stadium. See this highly aggressive fight for yourselves. Cheers and Happy Readi

Well the Chunin Exams have concluded in an unconventional manner, the assault of the Village by the Sand and Sound ninja. Things are not looking good for our band of ninja as Sasuke went off in pursuit of Gaara and the Third Hokage has been taken into closed combat with Orichimaru!!

Now the epic battle is finally here: Sasuke vs Gaara! Sasuke seems to have a new move up his sleeve. However, Gaara has a big secret in his sleeve. Also: Why are the sand genin talking to Gaara saying "Don't mess up the plan."

As for the actual plot stuff in vol 13, slightly less impressed. Partly because it's been so telegraphed this whole time, and because something meant to basically invalidate the tournament stuff is happening the one time that I'm actually fairly engrossed by a tournament plot. Also, mastermind villains of Orochimaru's ilk just bore me to tears. He does have _some_ interesting attributes (I loved his line to the Hokage: "I like watching moving objects."), but by and large, he's kind of a yawner. ...more

Shikamaru has just withdrawn from the battle after having defeating Tamari. Sasuke and Kakashi finally appear. Gaara kills two ninja in front of Naruto and Shikamaru when walking downstairs to meet Sasuke in the arena. During the battle, Gaara is agitated and talking to himself. Sasuke reveals his chidori and his taijutsu that he copied from Lee. Their fight is interrupted when the sand ninja put the audience to sleep. The Kazekage is revealed to be Orochimaru. He traps the Third Hokage in a bar ...more

I liked this one better than the others because you got to see Orochimaru's attak. Temari wins the fight against Shikamaru in a stunning way. Before Sasuke and Gaara's fight, Sasuke appears with a flashy enterance, casually late. They find the amazing story of the chidori, or lightning blade, as Sasuke unleashes it. As Gaara trys to transform he gets hit with the chidori. During the fight, the sand ninja and Orochimaru attack Konoha, and the Chunin selection exams concludes with a bang. As Sasuk ...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

This book is about everyone in the village taking a physical test to see if they learned in the days. Sasuke was training and when his fight came up things got out of control. The hokage and Oruchimaru went to a safe place where people can't disturb their fight. Sakura , Naruto, and Shikamaru an A mission.
What i think about this book is that it is cool because Sasuke learned a powerful skill from Kakashi and it is called chidori aka lightning blade. Sasuke would've beaten Garra but it got out of

Gaara is losing his marbles. His battle with Sasuke begins in this volume and takes up the majority of it. At one point, Gaara begins to transform, but Sasuke causes him injury in the middle of it. As Sasuke was attacking, the shady characters make their move and Orochimaru reveals himself. Sakura and Naruto are sent to follow Saduke as he was chasing after Gaara.

To be honest, so much is happening it's almost hard to keep up- but because of the complexity, the story is that much more powerful.

Probably the most epic fight of the series thus far between Gaara and Rock Lee. The plot also goes into overdrive in this volume with alliances between the Sound and Sand ninja being revealed, and a war breaking out against the Grass ninja. Easily one of the best volumes of the manga. The end of one arc and the immediate start of another. Gotta keep reading.

We learn quite a bit more about Gaara and just how disturbed/disturbing he is, Sasuke returns with the results of his month of training with Kakashi, and the volume culminates in the Sasuke/Gaara matchup that all the characters have been drooling over for several chapters/volumes now. Also a change of events brings the Chunin exam to a sooner than expected conclusion.

Naruto vol. 13 by Masashi Kishimoto is a great and easy read and I recommend this book to young readers. This book is about the Chunin exam ending because the Sand and the Sound are attacking the leaf. this book is a great and action packed-thriller.

I was really impressed with how they did the whole exam...but they never exactly got around to doing the rest of the tournament. Ah well, I guess an attack is an attack. :) The series just gets better and better.

Naruto is sort of resoundingly not my thing, and yet I keep getting it from the library. I know plenty of people with excellent taste who really like it, so I'm not dismissing it out of hand; it just doesn't click for me.

The schoolyard atmosphere finally lifts and the action ramps up a gear as the exam finishes and the town comes under siege! An unexpected turn after a slow build but this marks the turning point in the series

Very, very good volume. Gaara and Sasuke's fight was cut short though. :( In the anime, Gaara freaks out so much worse and it's so disturbing but they didn't do it in the manga. Anyways, can't wait to read the next volume!

Starting a re-read of these, since the series is finally finished, I decided to start with number 13 as that's about when I tend to stop on other re-reads, just because I run out of steam, so here's hoping. ^_^

This series started out with a fabulous story, but I find my attention wandering now when I pick up a new volume. More fights with the sand ninjas, o rebellion. It's becoming a bit too predictable. Yet I'll still pick up the next copy...
