The Chunin Exams are underway and Sasuke is not allowed to use his best technique. Will he be able to survive? Is this worth your time or money? Brief summary and recommendations inside.
Sasuke remains in the tournament despite Sakura’s pleas for him to withdraw because of Orochimaru’s curse. He learns that he cannot use his signature techniques and must find a way to survive his opponent who is one of the Sound Ninja that fought him in the Forest of Death.
I enjoy the Naruto manga. I’m not one of those fans that talks about it all the time and watches the anime a lot, but the Chunin Exams is my favorite part of the anime and the manga.
The fights are very well done and I like how characters were matched up to fight. Masashi Kishimoto knows how to draw good fight scenes and he makes them very intense and you want to see what’s going to happen next and if the character you like is going to survive.
I also like the match ups and the opponents are interesting and the fights are very well done and the artwork for the fight scenes is good and I enjoy looking at it.
This manga does contain violence with some blood, along with some periodic profanity, and fanservice. It’s recommended for ages 13 and up. Parents should probably read a few volumes before deciding if anyone younger than thirteen should read these graphic novels.
Overall, I recommend the Naruto manga if you like the anime series and want to skip all the filler, it’s worth borrowing from the library. If you’re a diehard fan of the anime, you’ll want to pick up the manga, and now that Viz Media is releasing 3-in-1 omnibuses of the manga, you can get them for a good price now.
