Resolution and wind down. I couldn't be happier. So much had just happened, I wanted to get perspective and place the significance upon the rest of the ninja world. It was such a wonderful sight when the whole village came out to praise Naruto. The flashbacks of the exact opposite being so true for so long really pinned it in my heart, too.

Now Danzo, the evil prick, has taken over as 6th hokoge. Grrrr.

UGHHH NARUTO DESERVES HIS PARENTS. IT'S NOT FAIR.

Loved loved LOVED the scene with Minato and Naruto. Their relationship is adorable and they've only met once.

And Hinata confessing her love to Naruto; SO MUCH PRIDE, even though it's ignored the remainder of the story.

SAKURA AND NARUTO'S HUG THOUGH. Ugh. Brotp man. Brotp.

Seriously though why have they already elected a new hokage? It's pretty disrespectful to Tsuande and careless as a nation. The hokage title isn't something to take light of. So m

An eye-opening epilogue that puts an end to the conflict revolving around Pain as his story is finally revealed and Naruto learns the nuances of pain and vengeance. It all ends by refocusing the new threat on Sasuke as the leaders of nations are called in for a secret meeting to determine the adequate course of actions regarding the rogue Konoha ninja.

Yours truly,

This was a beautiful volume. I'm just glad by how the events enfolded. If like to comment on something that I've observed.. Throughout the series Naruto is treated as childish, but the level of maturity Naruto has surpasses even the Elders of the city. ...more

This is really just a filler volume. You get some more insight into Nagato even though we kind of already know most of it. Naruto finally after all these years gets the recognition he so desired from Konoha village. Also in this volume we start setting up the new arc which is the Five Kage Summit!!

This is a review of the entire series.

Once upon a time, the spirit of an evil Nine Tailed Fox wreaked havoc on Konohagakure; the Village Hidden in the Leaves, killing hundreds of honorable ninja in the skirmish and leaving many children without homes or parents. The Fourth Hokage (leader of the village) unleashes a forbidden jutsu (magic spell/ninja ability) to seal the spirit of the evil fox into the body of a newborn baby named Naruto at the cost of his own life. He did this in the hopes that

Naruto is kind of like the Harry Potter of the manga universe. The characters grow up with you and you see how close they are and that even when they fight, they always remain loyal. Even Sasuke.

And Naruto truly deserves all the praise he gets. He should have been given this from the beginning, but this just really makes you happy for him when he gets acknowledged.

Loved the philosophy and hopefulness of this volume. And the resolution was pretty satisfying. I love the connections they’re making across the whole series by continuing to examine the idea of vengeance (or, perhaps more specifically, justice being just a form of vengeance) and calling into question the ethics of being a ninja.

At the time of this review, I have read volumes 40-43, 45, 47-48, and 53-54, which means I will try to focus only on the current view. With that said, let's talk about volume 48.

With that, we close the chapter on Pain. Oh my goodness! This was such an emotional charge volume with ton of backstory and reveals.

Naruto's Talk with Pain
Talk about becoming a character! This talk has so much points about peace, war, and about keep going forward even with deep emotional hurts. I would love to discuss,

This was an amazing story from the Naruto Series from Masashi Kishimoto yet again. It kept me on the edge of my seat while I was reading this. I loved how Masashi made the interaction between both Naruto and Nagato, also known as Pain, a interesting one. It provide the sense of similarity between them, due to both have a painful past and a dangerous power. It was very difficult to decide which of the two was my favorite for this volume. Even though I had a hard time choosing I finally decided to ...more

a volume that signals immense growth for naruto in terms of his personal philosophy and worldview. also emotional bc of the ame orphans' tragic story and jiraiya's legacy. reading this again now that im older, it's disturbing and alarming how similar the world in naruto and the real world are: full of war and hatred, cyclical vengeance, and the crushing impact powerful countries' influence and ambition wield on smaller ones. if only conflicts in the real world can play out like like it does in t ...more

It was really cool to see the rest of Naruto and Pain’s fight play out as well as Naruto learning about Nagato. Personally I thought it was adorable seeing Nagato and Konan go from wanting to destroy Konoha and capture Naruto, to leaving peacefully and putting their faith into Naruto.
Also, I absolutely hate Danzo and I can’t wait to see what happens whenever Sasuke meets up with him, as well as how that fight plays out.

I loved, loved, loved chapter 450 with (view spoiler); that moved me to the point of tears lmao. I also enjoyed the whole Nagato thing (view spoiler) as well! However, I didn't enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the previous ones, mainly because of the whole Danzo subplot that's building up, so maybe 4.5? Sorry. ...more

Overall Rating: 9/10 - This is basically a re-read for me as I have been reading Naruto since 2002, and I read every initial chapter release. There is just so much I can say about Naruto all of it Naruto, except the Kaguya part. I firmly believe it was a useless plot in a way and i would have been more content if we would have gone directly to the Naruto/ Sasuke fight after Madara's "defeat" (seriously he wasn't defeated just used, like Obito, like so many others....). I don't feel like I should ...more

Beautiful ending to the Pain arc. I love it so much and revisiting this arc with the manga was just as amazing. Now though, we are switching gears to the 5 Kage summit arc and all I gotta say is I'm excited for some Sasuke screen time in his next epic fight, and FUCK DANZO. Lol on to the next. ...more
