This is another sequel of Naruto Volume 9. In this volume, the battle of Hinata and Neji ended with Neji beating his sister, but Hinata has a fatal injury that Neji didn't know would occur. Now that the match has ended, another match is announced; the match of Gaara of the Sand village and Lee of the Leaf village. Gaara of the Sand uses sand from his gourd he keeps on his back for defense and offense . Lee however, uses traditional fighting due to his lack of ability to perform spells like norma ...more

Freakin' phenomenal! Naruto, Vol. 10: A Splendid Ninja is undoubtedly the best volume in the series thus far. The battle between two of my favorite characters, Rock Lee and Gaara, reaches epic proportions. It is intense, pulls at the heartstrings, and ends in an unexpected way. I love these two so much that I take turns rooting for each of them. Thankfully, this is a re-read for me so I know there isn't any reason for me to grieve.

The pairing of Rock Lee and Gaara is well done. Thes

Man, and I thought I had difficulties keeping up with all of Bleach's characters. To me, this volume was nothing but dude's whose names I don't remember kicking other dudes whose names I don't remember in the face and a ridiculous amount of ninja jargon I will promptly forget because it could have been summed up much easier.

The battle between Rock Lee and Gaara was bittersweet. Unfortunately Lee was badly injured in the fight and it doesn't look like he will be fighting anymore. His teacher, Master Guy, did not think ahead in his training and should have stopped him. The good news- we will see Gaara fight again! Gosh this kid is bloodthirsty!

The rest if the volume is pretty tame. Kakashi steps down as Naruto's instructor because he is wrapped up in the Orochimaru/Sasuke battle. He will remain as Sasuke's instructo

The next fight is a big one: Rock Lee vs Gaara. Gaara has been known to be a deadly that can kill in a second. However, Rock Lee is an extremely talent ninja. Who will win this extremely epic fight?

Iknow I already said this before but........IT'S MASTERFUL! THE DRAWINGS ARE AS AMAZING AS MAGNA CAN BE! THE STORY IS GREAT, AND IT EVERYTHING. IT HAS COMEDY, ROMANCE, ACTION, SADNESS, EPICNESS, AND EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF DRAMA. THIS BOOK SERIES IS INCREDIBLE, AND I WOULD RECOMDMEND IT TO ANYBODY AT!!!!

This book is about Naruto and other ninjas going through a test to rank up to a more advance ninja. There are three parts of the test. The first part of the test is a written test. The second part of the test is a survial test and a little mission to bring two scrolls to a temple. The third part of the test is to show off your skills and a tournament. Naruto was assigned to another sensei to train him for the tournament since his normal sensei was taking care of some bad guy. Another person whic ...more

While rereading, I found myself really connecting to Lee in a way I NEVER have before. Really glad I can appreciate his worth now compared to when I was eleven.

Ya gotta love Rock Lee. He's a lot like Naruto and he works really hard to become the best. He loves Sakura and is dedicated to Master Guy and his ninja path. but come on, bowl cuts aren't that bad! Are they? Are they?
And who could've thought that he would actually be able to hurt Gaara? Yeah, Lee! He wound up and threw a punch at Gaara so hard that he actually wound up on the floor.
But all that awesomeness has a price, especially in a kid that young. Will he ever be a ninja again? Will he be ab

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

I really liked this book because. The book had a lot of action because when gaara of the sand had to fight rock lee the are very different ninjas like gaara has lots of defence and offence and lee only has offence because he does not have ninjutsu he only has ninjutsu (hand to hand combat) so it was very hard for lee to fight gaara but in the end lee had lost and he nows a very big injury on his leg and later in the book series the hokage told lee that he can be a ninja ans lee's dream is to the ...more

Oh Rock Lee. He is legitimately one of my favorite characters in the series. He is determined, probably the most determined but at the same time sweet and also completely silly. He's kind of the equivalent of One Piece's Usopp. Any book with him heavily featured is great for me. :) However, I will say aside from Lee, I'm starting to think Kishimoto overexplains his world. Do we really need such extensive insights into how chakra works?

DQ. If you have serious diseases or injure, what will you do in the hospital?

I will read books or watch movies. Certainly, hospital is boring, because we cannot move or talk with someone, but it is a good time to read or watch something.

NARUTO vol.10 is a important I think. It is because Sasuke(character) started his action to revenge.

This book is about Naruto and his team entering the Chounin tournament. A Chounin is an upperclass ninja position specifically awarded to the individual that wins the tournament through fighting. in the tournament, Naruto meets a queer named Rock Lee. Rock Lee is an incredible fighter with an ugly hairstyle. He also falls in love with Sakura just like Naruto but results the same ending, rejection.
Stacey
The battle between Rock Lee and Gaara is pretty intense, but the most enjoyable part of this volume for me was the explanation of how the ninjas do their tricks. Maybe it's because I started playing the video game, maybe I was just wondering about the physics of Kishimoto's world but it was my favourite part.

Volume starts with 82: Lee's Secret.
We begin with the ninth match in the second phase of the Chunnin exams. This is the match between Rock Lee and Gaara of the Desert. This volume is an extraordinary display of martial arts. Any enthusiast should enjoy.
Cheers and Happy Reading!

La conclusión que saqué de este tomo es que admiro a Lee... enserio, él es asombroso.
Nunca creí que podría hacerle frente a alguien como Gaara solo con su Taijutsu.

Lo malo del tomo es que aparece Jiraiya.
Y, siendo sincera, ese viejo pervertido me cae muy mal.
Taruia
This edition mainly concentrates on Rock Lee and spooky Gaara as they battle in the never ending Ninja exams. I mean honestly they do go on, its like Lord of the Rings. I'm not complaining this is one of the better ones so far, this is merely an observation.

In this volume of Naruto Neiji and Hinata, fought a battle that everyone assumed Neiji would win. Neiji did win, but Hinata was left with a very serious injury. This book is great for people who like action and depth in their books.

Rock Lee is one of my favorite characters and puts up an amazing fight against Gaara. Naruto also gets his mentor that will help him become one of the strongest characters in the entire series.
