Elsewhere, Orochimaru earnestly awaits Sasuke's arrival, planning to take Sasuke's body for himself to regain the use of his arms. Although he puts it off for as long as he can, Orochimaru is forced to take a different body, planning to instead take Sasuke's body at a later date. تاریخ خوانش روز پانزدهم ماه جولای سال 2017 میلادی عنوان: ناروتو کتاب بیست و دوم: دوستان (رفقا)؛ نویسنده: ماساشی کیشیموتو؛ ا. شربیانی

    Story getting interesting. Also, of course the fight was drawn well, and makes you wonder what will happen next. I don't what else to say really. Well I can add Neji to my favorite characters list. Same with the others. Good volume.

    Although the fight scenes are pretty interesting, objectively, they didn't really spark my interest that much. Neji is better as a villain than as a hero. The battle was pretty drawn out and I suppose it might have been better if it had been streamlined more. Maybe. A long chase scene is only as good as the purpose, and all these newbs are chasing after someone who chose to leave the clan. Sure, it's Sasuke, but under any normal or realistic circumstances, the priority should have gone under neu Although the fight scenes are pretty interesting, objectively, they didn't really spark my interest that much.

Sure, it's Sasuke, but under any normal or realistic circumstances, the priority should have gone under neutralizing him, not bringing him back. The sequence doesn't really mar the manga that much, but it does have a bit of the feeling of filler.

    This is actually one of my favortie arcs in the series, simply because Naruto takes a backseat in it. I like Naruto but, as with most fictional works, I tend to gravitate toward the side characters. This is where several of the lesser developed characters shine. Neji's fight is great and it even manages to tie in his relationship with Naruto. I'd have to say Chouji's story was my favorite though.

It would have been easy for Kishimoto to just make Chouji "That Fat Kid" who is useless and the brunt of all jokes. But here we really got to see that his size is something that is important to his life as a ninja. Chouji wouldn't be nearly as strong without his fat, and I think there's a nice message of body acceptance to be found there. I also love his relationship with Shikamaru. (Of course, I love anything involving Shikamaru.) Their friendship doesn't get much exploration, but it feels so real that it doesn't really matter.

    Honestly, Sasuke isn't worth it. I'm loving seeing their true essence in battle. First Choji, and now Neji! It's so different from the exam battles of course.

    After Choji's battle, it is now Neji's turn to shine as he takes on his toughest foe yet. A bloody battle ensues and presents a Neji that has learned a huge lesson from his battle with Naruto. This volume also teases us at Orochimaru's inevitable decision regarding his health. While it's essentially a very drawn-out battle that covers most of this volume, I am excited for the final battle to come!

    Choji has defeated Jirobo but at what cost. The rest of the squad still chase after Sasuke but when they eventually catch up to the rest of the Sound Ninja Four their plan goes sideways. Neji realizes only he can take on Kidomaru because of his Gentle Fist technique. As Naruto, Shikamaru, and Kiba continue the pursuit, Neji and Kidomaru fight in an intense battle of smarts and wits with Neji just inching out the victory.

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.

    For me the fight between Neji and Kidomaru is the best I have seen in this series. Both were strong and although I find it hard to believe that how Neji can stand up so strong even after taking so many blows to his body, the idea was really interesting. I am not giving this a 5 star only because of fight only. There is a dynamic shift in Neji's character.

When he was defeated by Naruto, we did not see much of it but now we can see that he is changed. Changed completely. "Naruto, sometimes your eyes are better than mine." That took me some time to understand but when I realized what he meant, it really moistened my eyes. Neji is genius indeed. Taking on against someone like Kidomaru all alone. Overall, a beautiful volume.

    Actual rating: 4.5 stars. I used to like Neji a lot, and I still think he's a cool character, but this volume wasn't as exciting as the previous one. I guess Choji is just a more relatable character for me. Also, the spiders were really creepy *shudder*

    More and more difficult it becomes for Team Shimamaru to go after Sasuke. Neji battles the man whom I call Spiderman :D Neji is exceptional I must say. I don't really remember their names but anyway. Kiba and Akamaru fall under the hill with the man who has the ability to switch bodies and that's how he assassinates his enemies. Shikamaru stays behind to fight with the woman whose flute controls dead bodies with immense Chakra. I am as amazed by Shikamaru's analytical abilities as always.

Lee stops Kimimarou from going after Naruto as he runs after Sasuke.

    Leaving Neji to fight Kidomaru on his own, Naruto and Shikamaru race against the clock to save Sasuke before he becomes part of the deadly plan of Orochimaru! Kishimoto is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats with this tension-filled entry. How long can Neji last on his own against such a terrifying opponent?!

    Kishimoto continues to deliver a fantastic arc, furthering the reader's understanding of the world, potential powers of the various ninja, and letting us learn more about some of the background characters we've been introduced to. In this volume it's Neji who get's the combat spotlight, and we're treated to a fantastic series of action/battle chapters where the victory is determined by intelligence, strategy, and fortitude, always more interesting than a fight won by sheer power.

    As they run after Sasuke, Shikimaru devises a plan for every encounter, seeing every outcome. Both Choji and Neji defeat their opponents, with great difficult but determination from relationships their have forged. Orochimaru takes on a new body while waiting for Sasuke's arrival...

    In this book, Neji fights this spider guy. At first, Neji is winning then the spider guy figures out a way to take him down. When it looks the spider guy is winning. Neji figures out how to beat him and he did beat him

    Another great look at how much these characters have grown since Volume 1. This volume shows an amazing fight for Neji. He's one of the more balanced and skilled of the genin teams so it's always entertaining to watch him fight all out and really give it everything he's got.

    Obviously the bad guys underestimated our heroes, Neji shows off his tensai, suspense builds in the background, and Orochimaru and Kabuto are for real for real the real creeps...on to the next match uP!
