Enter a world of shuriken wielding and fire spitting Ninjas in Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto Volume 1: Uzumaki Naruto.
Summary of the Book
Years ago, the village of Konohagakure faced a nightmare they are yet to forget. A monstrous Nine-Tailed Fox attacked the village for unknown reasons. It killed many ninjas who tried to fight it. One brave warrior, the legendary Fourth Hokage, faced the creature. However, even he wasn’t a match for the creature’s power. In desperation, he sacrificed himself and sealed the creature within the body of a young boy, ridding the village of the menace. Now, the village is a peaceful refuge and the ninjas undertake small missions to earn money. They are mighty warriors, able to use devastating attacks to deal damage to their foes and a symbol of pride. Among them, however, is a mischievous young boy named Uzumaki Naruto. He is still in the Ninja Academy, where he has failed thrice already. This year, he decides, he will pass the exam. He might be in over his head, for the test is the dreaded body duplication technique: the Bunshin no Jutsu. And that’s the one technique Naruto completely fails at. Can this young miscreant, known for vandalizing the great Hokage Mountain, sneaking into womens’ baths for sneaking a peek, and using the Transformation Technique to transform into a woman, manage to pass the exam? Or will he watch in envy as he is surpassed by the graceful prodigy Uchiha Sasuke and the girl of his dreams, Haruno Sakura?
