    Whatever else you can say about this one, it feels and reads like a brand new series. Two years have passed. Nostalgia abounds, and what a funny sequence it was. So much has changed, and everyone has risen in the world, new ranks, new skills... and Naruto alone of his class has remained a lowly genin. Never mind that he's been training with a legendary sage. He's still far, far behind the rest of his peers. The dichotomy is pretty amusing, since he's the most powerful among them. New story arc!

    It was brilliant. Naruto returns after 2 years to hidden leaf village and it seems like he has grown up physically but mentally? I do not know. He still is the same Naruto which we knew in the previous mangas. But, there is one person who has grown up to a very high rank and when he is targeted by Akatsuki, it is up to team 7 now to save him from the potential danger. We do not yet see Naruto's growth in this manga except that stupid fight with Kakashi in the opening which is why I deducted 1 st It was brilliant.

Otherwise, this is a fun read and a start of a very new storyline.

    This volume marks the beginning of Naruto: Shippuden with a time jump that allows all the characters to mature and gain new skills and wisdom through intense training. The reunion between our lovely heroes is touching and shows that even with training, they can't help but still be kids at heart. Their first mission as shinobis brings them on an already super deadly task, up against folks that aren't here to mess around. The fiery passion in these heroes make their actions seem so heroic and this This volume marks the beginning of Naruto: Shippuden with a time jump that allows all the characters to mature and gain new skills and wisdom through intense training. The reunion between our lovely heroes is touching and shows that even with training, they can't help but still be kids at heart. Their first mission as shinobis brings them on an already super deadly task, up against folks that aren't here to mess around. The fiery passion in these heroes make their actions seem so heroic and this is probably due to all the character development the reader gulped for the past 27 volumes.

But when one of them is kidnaped, it's up to Naruto to prove he's got the stuff to save them! MY OPINION Naruto has finally returned home after two long years. He and Sakura team up once more with Kakashi, who has them take a familiar test once again... the bell test. But this time, they manage to take the bells from him. Much has changed in the years Naruto was gone. All of the Rookie Nine except for him and Sasuke have become chunin. Neji has gone on to become a jonin. Kankuro and Temari of the Hidden Sand are also jonin now. And Gaara has become Kazekage of the Sand village. But as the Akatsuki close in on Gaara for some reason, Team Kakashi rushes to help, and it becomes clear that they are after Gaara because he is a junchuriki - the host of one of the tailed beasts. But what do the Akatsuki want with the tailed beasts? Quote: "Not to self: DO NOT upset Sakura. She'll kill you!"

    Naruto is back after two years of training! Still a goofball, but slightly more serious, he is as lovable as ever. Sakura appears to be useful and I hope she matures out of her obsession with Sasuke. Kishimoto cleverly holds back on revealing their new powers and the scene with Kakashi's bells brought about some good nostalgia. It is funny and sad how Naruto is the only genin in their year. The Akatsuki kidnap Gaara (who is now Kazekage) and the battle was epic and showed how inventive Deidara i Naruto is back after two years of training!

I also loved Gaara's monologue about Naruto! So many feels! Kankuro was poisoned and defeated when he tried to chase after Gaara. Temari, Naruto, Kakashi, and Sakura go to the Village in the Sand with Guy, Tenten, Lee, and Neji following behind. Sakura heals Kankuro and they plan to bring Gaara back and take on the Akatsuki.

    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...

    This is the first Naruto I've read. It starts two years from the vol. 27, and so it begins a new story arc. Naruto is now older and more mature in both his personality and his powers. He's developing a romance with fellow ninja Sakura, which I found to be the most interesting part of the book. The ninja stuff I found confusing, as well as the changing alliances among his ninja crew. I found it hard to tell the characters apart as well. this didn't grab me, though it's probably because it's not a This is the first Naruto I've read.

    I will own up to liking this series. Naruto returns to his village after 2 1/2 years of training, and is immediately pressed into action when the Akatsuki - a rogue Ninja organization - kidnap Gaara of the Sand. This volume kicks off the second story arc, and introduces a few more characters to the already enormous cast. No Gamabunta, and some of the action sequences are a bit much(one of the villains uses exploding clay animals as a weapon), but still good.

    Reread July 2014 Hilarious and heartbreaking. THEY ARE ALL SO BIG. I am marathoning this series so hard. I am literally drowning in all of the Naruto. Sakura is such a bamf in shippuden, FINALLY. And I'm getting so emotionally attached to Naruto (the actual character), which is weird because I definitely didn't feel this way when I was younger. It's just making everything that much more painful.

    Yay, I have finally reached the Shippuden part of the manga. I know I am going to love these next few volumes as the kidnapping of Gaara is one of my fav seasons in the anime. Awesome fights, fantastic new characters in the Akatsuki introduced like Deidara and Tobi. hehehe. Can't wait to get into the rest now.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I liked the book because Naruto finally came back after 2 years. I liked how kakashi had a test for sakura and Naruto to do for he can see how much they progressed. I think it was funny the way that they got the two bells from him.I also like the fighting scene with garra vs didera. I was sad to see that garra was captured but also astonished at the fight with lee neji ten ten and guy.

    Yeeahhhhhh! It was great to see these characters all grown up ! What an excitement the show watchers would have felt too ! I think this is where the Shippuden starts from ? New powers ! New looks ! Everything was exciting ! Introduction of new Akatsuki members ! Deidara and Sasori ! Cool. (view spoiler)[ Hard to believe though that Gaara actually got defeated :S (hide spoiler)]

    Naruto is back from training with Jiraiya, also known as Toad Sage. Naruto has learned that on e of his comrades have been kidnapped. And as usual, he comes to the rescue. He has new powers that will be used to help find the kidnapped comrade.

    Honestly, picking it up in the middle wasn't likely all that smart, and I'm too old to be in the target audience, but it was meh. Art's good, but the story didn't hook me in at all. Kind of routine Japanese comedic bits, and momentary attempts at drama.

    THis when naruto came back with Jaraiya and met his teammates sakura and Kakashi. Very good beginning very joyful, except for gaara being nearly killed.

    Great start to Part 2 of Naruto! Lots of action and personality to the story and I'm looking forward to where this story goes. And as usual, great artwork.

    Sasuke is #1 in the popularity contest? WTF, Japan? Also, Kankuro wears a lot of makeup, which becomes really obvious when you finally see him without it. WTF, Kankuro?

    [Ch. 245-253] The beginning chapters were good, but it's slow moving. It's probably cause I've already seen the episodes for the manga chapters. On another note... GAARA!!! xD

    Every time I pick up a book from the series, I kinda want to cry. It's just insane how emotionally attached I've become in such a short time. Btw, Sakura has become Holy Hell powerful!!! :D

    Naruto can't bring back Sasuke. Sakura is very sad at Naruto. Now Naruto has become very strong and can protect his village.

    I finally made it to the second part of Naruto’s story. He’s now older and hopefully a little wiser. So far, it’s nice to see all the changes in the characters. I hope it continues well.

    I really love Naruto but the ending took away a star for me; way too discombobulated and super forced. But all in all, I'm a big fan! Read it now!
