    This was not what I had expected. We see more mature and strong Sakura than Naruto. Naruto is still not good enough. I do not understand when he will get some sense. His character killed the whole story here. The puppet fight was extremely entertaining. There were some cool moves by Sasori and also the puppets are beautifully designed. I wish Naruto starts fighting well. This anime will become more enjoyable then.

    My god, guys, Kishimoto treats his female characters so much better than Kubo treats his that it's not even funny. Case in point: post-skip Sakura. She's physically and magically stronger, sure, but check out how much psychologically stronger she is. It's even reflected in her character design: watch the difference in how she carries her arms and shoulders now.

    This volume satisfies. Sakura has become a badass, and fighting with granny Chiyo's help against Sasori is rather impressive, no matter how you look at it. We've already established that the Akatsuki are true badasses. Sakura has great fighting spirit, of course, but this situation is very, very dangerous. What can I say? I'm very proud of her. It's a very fun fight.

    A little girl and an old woman take on a villain. It is nice to see some strong female characters in a shonen. Finally, I started liking Sakura. About time she started fighting!

    The tension continues to increase as the rescue mission comes closer to the end. The volume is essentially split into two different fights where Naruto and Sakura each get the chance to show their growth. Unfortunately, Naruto’s end was disappointing as he only shows more of his lack of control on his powers while Sakura shows greater development with a layer of nervousness around her.

    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 was okay. Mostly Sakura and granny verse puppet master. The battle is fun because doesn't rely on big super attacks or anything and watching Sakura actually be useful is fun. But we all know how it's going to end, and Naruto story feels super slow in this volume. A 3 out of 5.

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.

    One of my favorites cause we see so much growth in Sakura after about 3 years, and she totally kicks ass. This is one of the volumes that i can't put down until it's over. Also Granny Chiyo!

    4.5 because the action in the Sasori scenes is a bit hard to follow.

    Volumes that focus primarily on a member or two of Naruto's supporting cast are nearly always a bit lesser for me, as they tend to focus on a single battle or flashback rather than advancing the story of the series protagonist. Granted this is a battle manga, so its series plotline is often broken up by ultra-detailed half or even full-volume battle sequences, but still, I'm most interested in character and story, so to do well, volumes that move Naruto and his story to the background have to be Volumes that focus primarily on a member or two of Naruto's supporting cast are nearly always a bit lesser for me, as they tend to focus on a single battle or flashback rather than advancing the story of the series protagonist.

Kishimoto delivers here. The use of the titular puppet-master jonin is creative and fascinating. Also the insight into Sakura that comes with that battle is interesting in itself. Nice to see her used beyond her archetypal role as Naruto's unreachable crush.

    Yasss, I've been waiting for another volume like this for so long now. I love volumes focusing on my baby, Sakura has so much potential and seeing a whole volume dedicated to her proving herself and showing off her skill was a real treat. And for some reason in this volume I just really appreciated the art. And it's no secret that the last few volumes hadn't really impressed me and this drew me straight back into the series. It'll probably be another while before I see my queen slay once again b Yasss, I've been waiting for another volume like this for so long now.

Okay, I'll go, I just love love love this volume.

    The good: -Great action sequences. -Sasori's character is very interesting. -Finally we see some of the new Sakura fighting. -Naruto is in the background being Naruto. The bad: -I didn't understand some of the things Sasori and Deidara were discussing, but I blame the translator of my edition. -Having the Guy team fighting them selves wasn't very original. -Some of the action scenes with Sasori's puppets were drawn too blurry that I had trouble knowing who was doing what.

    In order to Save Naruto, Sakura races headfirst into the battle and faces the horrifying puppet powers of Sasori, with no one but the mysterious Granny Chiyo at her side! Kishimoto gives this fan favourite the spotlight in an enjoyable fight that makes this entry a joy to race through. Will Sakura be able to hold her own in a fight that could be out of her control?!

    It was good but it was too short.I re-read this so many times.Sakura and lady chiyo fight and a puppet master named sasori.(Sasori is part of the Akatsuki).Sakura and lady chiyo defeat sasori.After that Naruto starts to get angry because Deidara killed gaara.Lady chiyo develops a a special type of jutsu that revives the dead and the user dies.Gaara is revived and everyone is back to normal.

    Sakura is growing onto me. She's brilliant during their fight with Sasori. Elder Chiyo and Sakura against Sasori, an ultimate battle of puppeteers. I'm amazed at how much she has grown and gotten stronger. This volume is yet another one of my favorites of Sakura battles. Wit, strength, quick-thinking, and it takes everything for the two women to defeat Sasori.

    Wowow Sakura-chan has gotten so strong and impressive! Wowow I thought that Kidomaru no yatsu was a creep but Chiyo-baa and Sasori have such dark story, so the real question here is, who is the biggest creep, Kidomaru, or Sasori? or.....Orochimaru?? Also Chiyo-baa won me over 1st time we saw her laughing over her play-dead joke—fair to say I'm a Chiyo-baa fan.

    More of a 3.5 star rating but I gave it 4 stars because I like that with this volume especially, we really get to see all the progress that Sakura has made with her training under Tsunade. She went from being extremely annoying and useless to a very strong and cunning young shinobi.

    I found this volume to be a bit slow, and I find Granny Chiyo to be bit odd, but I'm just rolling with it.

    Lots of fighting in this volume, not much development, so not my favorite. That being said, the puppet fight was one of my favorite fights in the series.
