And here's the moment of truth. Itachi is such a bad-ass, and the fight only serves to prove how far Sasuke has come to avenge his clan, of how powerful he is and how many sacrifices he's taken. I loved the Karin move, but I loved how snakeboy got sealed even more. What a twist in the character sheet!

But above all, it was Itachi's end that carried the volume on to great heights. (Now is that because I'm anticipating the next volume? Or is it because there was enough backstory to make it precious

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 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 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 truth is shown but not before Sasuke and Itachi go out it one final time.

The fight here actually works. Even the dramatic build up to the "ultimate" attack from Sasuke, the last few smaller attacks, the epic summon, all of it worked because you feel the desperation of this guy trying to really murder his brother. The second half deals with the fallout and oh my, secrets are reveal. Some I could have guessed, some feel a bit lying, but the heart of it worked really well to help build Sasuke

Never understood why so many HATE Sasuke. I get how frustrating he can be but you'd have to be heartless to say that considering how his past warped him. Sasuke never chose to better himself like Naruto, so he is at fault. But you can't dismiss how much he suffered. As well as Itachi. ...more

Sooo Sad That Itachi Died

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

Probably another favorite of mine. The first time I was reading Naruto back in middle school and high school, I stopped reading here for a very long time. It was one of the first times (if not THE first time) that a character's death effected me so much. I could not, would not, did not WANT to process any of it because my favorite character died and his story is just so heart breaking. I don't think I've ever cried so much from reading.

And yes, I cried again. A lot. It's impossible for me not t

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. ...more

40 volumes of wanting Itachi dead, I'm finally happy that Sasuske won. I almost rejoice Itachi's death, but a few more pages later, I'm mourning for him. He is now one of my favourite characters. This feels worse than the deaths of Asuma and Jiraiya.

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. ...more

This is a masterful bit of storytelling. In this volume Kishimoto completes the Sasuke/Itachi arc that has run since Sasuke left the village of the Leaf, some fifteen-sixteen volumes ago to pursue his brother. Their battle, begun in 42, is finished, and then the story continues with a tale told partially in the present by an insitu storyteller, and partially through flashback, that completely re-arranges the entire story we know so far (or thought we knew) regarding Itachi and Sasuke.

Manga a place where a artist’s inner self is exposed through small pictures on a black and white paper in a small book form. To date in my honest opinion Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto) has earned my respect as a true manga artist with his masterful plot and character backgrounds. This particular plot is the one were I like the best is the one between two brothers Sasuke and Itachi Uchiha. On the one side Sasuke wishes to avenge his clan by killing those responsible whose is his brother Itachi. Itach ...more
