    My favorite characters so far, are some of the other fighters in this tournament, finals, etc. I mean I don't like the MC but don't hate him, well, at first sure but you know what? He has his moments he really does. But you have to read a couple of volumes until you start to like the guy. The world building is interesting, the other characters and villains are interesting. Its kind of fun reading this while hearing the dub in your head, I don't know it just fits you know? Another good volume.

I like Shikamaru's I don't care attitude but underneath is a genius kind of attitude/fighting style he's got going. Makes this volume more interesting. Also, we got some character development it seem with one of the characters. Anyway, another good volume.

    Okay, so, even though Naruto's fight against Neji was all kinds of awesome with the long missing adulations of the crowd, this is where Shikamaru really starts to really shine. The end of that battle was so funny, and it accomplished so damn much that he became the top choice for any subsequent missions later.

    Two fights in a volume, what a thrill! I respect Naruto's progress and hard work, I could do without a lot of his babbling throughout the fight, but I respect the progress he made. Also, Neji's back story is sad. I guess almost 90% of the characters here have tragic backstories, right? Shikmaru is sure a weird guy, I love him! He's just... different. His reasons to fight, and reasons to become a ninja, and even his thoughts process are all different. and I like that! I'm just having fun getting to Two fights in a volume, what a thrill!

    Over half of this volume is devoted to the battle between Naruto and Neji. While they are fighting, we get a glimpse into Neji's past and what drives his hatred. Hinata is not fully waked from her battle with Neji and begins to cough up blood as she is watching. She is taken away on a stretcher, but a black ops guy offered to help but knocks out her friend.

Sasuke was about to be forfeited from the competition but the decision changed: the fight will be postponed and they will wait for Sasuke. Lord Kazekage was persistent that Sasuke fight...but I feel like Lord Kazekage has been replaced with someone else. Maybe Orochimaru?? We end this volume with a battle between Shikamaru and Temari. She wins because Shikamaru have up at the last moment.

However, the next match between Shikamaru and Temari was a bit opposite of it, they both were trying to outsmart each other by doing tricks and though the ending was funny, it just really brought out the real character of Shikamaru which I thought was lame. Meanwhile, Sasuke is still absent and something fishy is going on in the stadium. Something is coming...

No real emotional investment, but boy are the tactics and mindgames-focused fights a treat, and Shikamaru vs Temari is a great one of those. Good. Stuff.

    The final rounds of the Chunin exams begin. Naruto spars with Neji of the Hyuaga Clan Cadet Branch, in a 105-page battle as philosophical as it is physical, with warring ideas on destiny and free will. Naruto has opportunity during the standoff to tap into the power of his incased fox spirit. Naruto's comrade Sasuke has yet to show up for the tournament (glimpses are shown of a previous and mysterious scene with Gaara, Sasuke and Kakashi), so Kanjuro and Aburame Shino match up instead.

This volume doesn't have as much room for the layered and complex political intrigue that the preceding volumes had, but is still suspenseful, top-notch cartooning.

    This volume was a little serious because Neji told the history of his family. Naruto seemed like afraid of the strength of the Hyuga. I was very excited for the battle which characters expressed their background. I actually hoped that both of Naruto and Neji didn’t lose. I was surprised Naruto succeeded to demonstrate his “Kyubi” normally. I am glad that I could see his advances by practicing with Jiraiya. I kept worrying about the result of Sasuke and Orochimaru…

His antics amuse his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure! THE GREAT FLIGHT At last, the finals of the third phase of the Chunin Selection Exams begin! In the first battle, Naruto faces off against Neji, widely considered to be the most talented young ninja in Konohagakure. With his newfound ability to access the power of the Nine-Tailed Fox, can Naruto beat his genius opponent? Or will Neji overcome his family's troubled history to triumph in the match? MY OPINION As Naruto and Neji face off, Neji believes he will defeat Naruto because the second they were paired as opponents, that became Naruto's fate. Neji believes that everyone's destinies are predetermined at birth. Just as it was his father's fate to die the second he was born, because he was a part of the cadet branch, while Neji's uncle remained in the main branch. At last, we learn why the cadet and main branch are so strained with each other. Neji holds a bitter resentment toward the main branch because of an incident where Hinata's father's body was wanted as retribution for the death of a ninja that trained to kill Hinata. Instead, Neji's father who was Hinata's father's twin, was killed and sacrificed to the enemy as the head's body. While Naruto sympathizes with Neji, he believes that Neji is merely using this as an excuse not to fight back. Naruto hates that Neji thinks he is the only one who is 'special' the only one who has ever been completely alone, because that's not true. Naruto has been alone his entire life, at least Neji knew his parents which is more than can be said for the knuckle-headed ninja Naruto. After their match concludes, Neji learns a startling truth - his father wasn't sacrificed, his father chose to die, not to protect the main branch's heir, but to protect his brother. The next fight is Gaara vs. Sasuke, but when Sasuke does not appear the match is postponed. Which leads us to the fight between Shino and Kankuro. But Kankuro withdraws, and then its Tamari vs. Shikamaru. With a quick fight, Shikamaru eventually catches Temari with his Shadow Possession Jutsu, only to forfeit because he knows that even those he's planned 200 possible scenarios and outcomes, he's used too much chakra trying to catch her. And so, this once again brings us back to the match between Gaara and Sasuke. But where is Sasuke? Quote: "His I.Q. is over 200... He's a freakin' genius!"

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 the boy could one day learn to master the power of the demonic spirit and use it to protect the village and become a great hero of the people. Unknown to the citizens of the Leaf, the Nine Tailed Fox was being controlled by an even more powerful adversary, a legendary rogue ninja that plans to wage war against the entire world from the shadows. The identity of the mysterious ninja that attacked the Leaf Village using the Nine Tails died with the Fourth Hokage, and he used what remained of his life to gift Naruto with the power of one day being able to stop this evil ninja and a clan of outlawed S-rank criminals called the Akatsuki from committing mass genocide against the many hidden villages and clans of the world. Because of the evil spirit sealed inside him, Naruto grew up hated by the other children of the village because they believe him and the Nine Tails to be one and the same. They believe he’s a ticking time bomb waiting to go off, waiting for the perfect moment to kill them all just like the Nine Tails killed their parents and families. Shunned, dehumanized and treated like dirt, Naruto vows to become the greatest hokage the world has ever seen so that he can receive the love and acknowledgement he never got as a child. On top of the Nine Tails power and the will to never quit, Naruto also possesses the uncanny ability to turn everyone he meets into a potential comrade. He brings out the best in his peers and tries his hardest to make his enemies see the errors of their ways. He disobeys the rules and ignores cultural traditions to try and make changes to the world and break the eternal cycle of war and hatred through his own methods. His determination is infectious to friend and foe alike. He earns himself the respect he deserves by overcoming one impossible obstacle at a time. Naruto encounters many fascinating and terrifying ninja over the course of his journey to become hokage. Among them are Sasuke Uchiha, Naruto’s best friend and rival who is driven by the vengeful lust to murder his elder brother after he wiped out their own clan in cold blood. Sasuke warms up to Naruto, but his hatred and trauma are dangerous forces that threaten to break his moral code as a ninja and destroy his reputation among his peers. Kakashi Hatake is a notorious copycat ninja that survived one of the most brutal and devastating wars in history as well as the Nine Tails attack on the Leaf Village. He becomes Naruto and Sasuke’s mentor and teaches them a great number of valuable lessons about surviving in the dangerous world of rogue ninja, bloodthirsty assassins and clans ruled by corruption. Jiraiya is a perverted yet wise sage who taught the Fourth Hokage everything he knew and he’s regarded as a god among shinobi that’s famous for his heroic actions in the second great ninja war. He takes an interest in Naruto and raises him as a father figure to carry on the legacy of the Fourth Hokage to prepare him for the many dangerous people that want to use his power for their own nefarious purposes. The Akatsuki is one such group of wicked ninja. Among them are Sasuke’s brother Itachi who murdered his clan and possesses many dangerous techniques involving illusions, psychological torture and elemental manipulation. Sasori who controls poisonous puppets with magical threads, Orochimaru who mastered the forbidden arts of reanimation and quasi-immortality, Deidara who fights from afar using detonating clay and many other deadly foes. The entire series chronicles Naruto and his fellow ninja comrades growing through countless trials and tragedies. There are hundreds of unique jutsus, clans, and techniques which lead to some very intense, creative and strategic battles between skilled ninja with diverse abilities that don’t always match up evenly. There are clan based abilities such as the Aburame clan’s ability to control insects, the Yamanaka clan’s ability to jump into other people’s minds and control their bodies and the Inuzuka clan’s ability to bond with wolves that learn to mimic their master’s battle skills. Then there’s ocular genetic abilities such as the sharingan which allows the user to create psychological illusions, copy their enemy’s abilities and manipulate elemental energy. The byakugan allows the user to read their enemies vital points and detect their spiritual energy from faraway. The rinnegan grants control over space and gravity and so on. On top of having countless unique abilities, nearly every character has a tragic backstory that makes them sympathetic and relatable, even the nastiest of the villains have well-explored reasons for following the paths they do and becoming the way they are. One of my favorite aspects of the series is how well it explores the physical, emotional and psychological effects war can have on society and culture as well as the survivors and future generations that are forced to live in them. How it breeds racism and cultural disputes, how it inspires hatred in orphaned children and war veterans robbed of their homes toward foreign nations, as well as how this eventually leads to further death, war, poverty and destruction. Learning to forgive the ones you hate to prevent further conflict and damaging the world for future generations even further is a major theme throughout the story. Being a massive 700 chapter series, it’s not too surprising that there’s some plot holes and consistency issues. A rule might be stated regarding the requirements and usage of a certain jutsu or ability only for that rule to be repeatedly broken 400 chapters later. Sometimes the characters and rules contradict themselves, sometimes the chronology of certain events and historical facts don’t match up perfectly, the lore and general backstory go through several retcons that change the philosophy and power scaling of the characters and the scope of world-building; the final arc especially drags on and breaks a lot of the logic and rules that the story spent the whole series setting up, etc... Naruto’s far from perfect, but I remember it very fondly for being one of the first series that introduced me to things like manga and Japanese entertainment in general. It was one of those childhood classics like Dragon Ball, Inuyasha, Yu Yu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin. The series grew up with me and I can’t help but feel grateful to it for introducing me to hundreds of other franchises that I’m still a huge fan of to this day and I continue to find many new ones on the regular. Naruto's journey from a clownish, disrespected outcast into a talented, well-loved and admired hero is a memorable one.

In the second battle in this volume, we learn that Shikamaru is a genius, a tremendous strategist, the potential to be the best team leader of any candidate, but does not apply himself. In a phrase, the Slacker Ninja.

Naruto decides to take a break from testing and goes on a mini break, while there, he learned how to control his flow of Chakra to his feet and walk on water.

He failed many times, and so he finally gave up and went to the hot springs to rest, while he was there he saw someone peeking into the women's hot springs, Naruto confronts him. What will happen? Is this someone harmful or someone helpful? While I was reading this book I made a text to world connection. In this volume Naruto acted as if he was a police who keeps everything in tact and makes sure no one is violating any rules. But in this case, the man is looking through to the females hot springs and invading privacy that Naruto has to stop him from doing. I rate this volume 3 stars because I felt as if this is one of the worst of the series, when there is barley anything happening and it is just filling in the spot for a volume. Also, I do not see any significant turns in this volume.

Same great amazing artwork and beautiful chapter splash pages. Lots of small details to the artwork in this manga that I love. Another easy 4 star volume.

    The finals are officially underway with two heated battles. Naruto and Neji's fight is intense and eye-opening because you learn so much history about the Hyuga clan, and it is devastating. Naruto also shows off his new trick in which he can now control the chakra of the demon fox inside him. Then up next is Sasuke but he has been missing for a month and no one knows his whereabouts.

The battle is heated as both are strategic masterminds but one has more of an edge then the other. That doesn't change the fact that the match ends in another forfeit.

    I loved this volume. Not only does it contain a great message, but it also has engaging characters and battles. Neji and Naruto's battle in particular was extremely good to read, and also heartbreaking. The Hyuga clan in general is a mess, but Neji's way of thinking that everything is predestined is so sad! I love that Naruto comes in with a totally different outlook and shows Neji what it's all about. Again, wonderful message. I love Neji so much too. In this volume, we also get to see just how I loved this volume. Not only does it contain a great message, but it also has engaging characters and battles.

    Wow, Shikamaru is _the shit;_ that tunnel trick was some seriously fancy business. And I'm impressed that Naruto sometimes _does_ know the exact right thing to say to a guy. AND I'm impressed that peoples' weaknesses actually make sense. (i.e. Neji is immensely powerful, very fast, has nearly perfect technique, and sees absolutely everything... but he really isn't much of a thinker. Easy to trick with a designated-doppelganger fakeout. —Whereas Naruto wouldn't have even bothered to _try_ that on Wow, Shikamaru is _the shit;_ that tunnel trick was some seriously fancy business. And I'm impressed that Naruto sometimes _does_ know the exact right thing to say to a guy. AND I'm impressed that peoples' weaknesses actually make sense.

    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...

    Naruto and Neji face off in the finals, and Naruto finally gets some respect! I felt a little sad for Naruto when Hakashi passed his training off to others, because I like Hakashi and it definitely gave Naruto the impression that Hakashi was favoring Sasuke (like everyone else seems to). But it seems like the new sensei knows just how to train Naruto. We also see a fun battle between Shikamaru and Temari...and we get a hint that something fishy is going on amongst the spectators...

    Man this is one of my favorites. Aside from Lee I also really love Shikamaru and Neji so I got to glee out a lot. I love Shikamaru's strategy and Neji is just good to look at though he also has a great character and his story arc was short but nicely done. Naruto also had a really great fight in this chapter, really coming into his own. The story is becoming in a way more and more his story--sort of--but there is too big a cast for him to get a big spotlight. Sorry Naruto. Man this is one of my favorites.

    Loved both of the big fights, but there are so many hidden plots unfolding that I'm starting to get a little nervous. I hope Hinata is okay, and I really wished she could've watched all of Naruto's fight. Shikamaru's fight was very interesting and I enjoyed seeing how it turned out overall, very cool. I'm just really looking forward to the fight between Sasuke and Gaara.... Loved both of the big fights, but there are so many hidden plots unfolding that I'm starting to get a little nervous.

    So much to say! I really admire how much Naruto is maturing through the books. Plus, how he helps Neji really open his eyes... :) Gaara and Sasuke are just awesome. Talk about two, probably overrated badasses of the series. :) I'm kind of torn between Shikamaru and Shino. They both are super cool! And Temari is pretty awesome herself. :) So much to say!

    In this book Shikamaru and Temari are the first batlle in the last section of the chunin exams. Shikamaru used a lot of strategy while Temari used brute force. Shikamaru proves himself to be a great fighter even though he forfeits.

    I was reading this series online, and just now realized that I'm in the 12th book (seeing as it doesn't show you what book you're on on the site, only chapters,). So, I'm surprised I've already gotten this far.
