    Very sad. I knew it had to come even as I was reading it the first time, but it's still sad. I'll miss Ero-senin. If that wasn't enough, we've finally got the long awaited fight between Itachi and Sasuke. It's only been forty-two volumes in the making. It's not like anyone had been waiting, what, eight years to finally see? Do I sound bitter? Naaah... It's a fucking awesome battle. Very sad.

    This was actually a pretty great volume. The end of a era as one of the main characters is killed. There's no coming back from this death as it cements a brutal finish and a heavy weight will be carried to other characters. We also get the fight we've been waiting for. Sasuke verses Itachi, and it's pretty goddamn awesome to see both go all out. No more holding back and it shows. Overall, fast paced and exciting volume. This was actually a pretty great volume.

In truth this probably isn't five stars standing alone, but if you've been reading from volume 1 to volume 42 then it is nothing but. Some of this is a little rushed, the transition could be way smoother, yet here we are. It's the start of a long anticipated battle. I nearly forgot the import of that as I was still focusing on Jiraiya the Gallant. Naruto always hitting where it hurts.

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 heโ€™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, Narutoโ€™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 Sasukeโ€™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 heโ€™s regarded as a god among shinobi thatโ€™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 Sasukeโ€™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 donโ€™t always match up evenly. There are clan based abilities such as the Aburame clanโ€™s ability to control insects, the Yamanaka clanโ€™s ability to jump into other peopleโ€™s minds and control their bodies and the Inuzuka clanโ€™s ability to bond with wolves that learn to mimic their masterโ€™s battle skills. Then thereโ€™s ocular genetic abilities such as the sharingan which allows the user to create psychological illusions, copy their enemyโ€™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, itโ€™s not too surprising that thereโ€™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 donโ€™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... Narutoโ€™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 canโ€™t help but feel grateful to it for introducing me to hundreds of other franchises that Iโ€™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.

He's got a wild sense of humor, but Naruto is completely serious about his mission to be the world's greatest ninja! THE SECRET OF THE MANGEKYO To truly end the Akatsuki's reign of pain, Naruto's teacher Jiraiya must delve deep into the past to uncover the secret of Pain's origin. At the same time, Sasuke moves toward the final battle of the Uchiha brothers when he closes in on the elusive Itachi! MY OPINION As Jiraiya continues to battle against pain, he learns something shocking. Having once believed Pain to be Nagato, he now believes Pain is really Yahiko, as one of Pain's forms looks just like an older version of the boy Jiraiya once mentored. But this would mean that Yahiko stole Nagato's Rinnegan. Why would he do that? And who are these other five forms of Pain that also seem to possess the Rinnegan? They're all ninja Jiraiya has faced before in battle, but why are they now part of Pain? Just as it seems Jiraiya has figured out who Pan really is, he's cut down. He manages to send a code via one of his toads before drifting into his death. Meanwhile, Naruto's group have come across Tobi of the Akatsuki and are facing him in battle. Sasuke and Itachi have finally come face to face once again, and as even more secrets about the Mangekyo Sharingan are revealed it appears Sasuke may finally have the upper hand over his older brother. Quote: "Madara is alive... whether you want to believe me or not is your choice."

The ending to the fight is one of the most tragic moments in the story, as yet another iconic character dies.

I wish this was more explored considering individual autonomy is a significant theme for this series. - โ€œYou kids make sure youโ€™re back for supper.โ€ That makes me sad. - Sannin parallels between Naruto/Sasuke and Jiraiya/Orochimaru are the shit. It also shows how much Jiraiya projects on Naruto, considering he calls the kid his grandson. - Sasuke with bandages on his forehead and a high-collared cloak looking like how he did when he was back in Konoha and then running into Naruto is. Just. - โ€œBlindness is the price of obtaining the power to control the nine-tails.โ€ I am absolutely not reading into that. But also, gay people. - Itachi relating it as Madara stealing Izunaโ€™s eyes, rather than Izuna offering Madara his eyes, is very interesting. Assumptions perpetuated by the Uchiha? Konoha? Tobito? Also, thinking about Itachi drawing parallels between himself and Madara when usually itโ€™s Sasuke and Madara. - Bandages and headband Off. This feels significant. Leaving Konoha; โ€˜snake shedding its sin and becoming a hawk.โ€™ - What is it with this family and eyeball trauma. - Ugh. This fight is so good. The glitch and genjutsu break was so satisfying. Forever thinking about how Sasuke is better at genjutsu than Itachi and refuses to use it or kill people. So many thoughts about misconstruing characters. - When theyโ€™re both breathing fire at each other it looks eerily similar to the Azula/Zuko fight.

He lived his life for it and cared for everyone he came in contact with including the one who killed him. He was fun loving and always made people smile including, and especially, Naruto. And the fact that he is his godfather made it all the more crushing, because now Naruto, again, has no family. Jiraiya also believed that people like him didn't deserve happiness, but were there to help others find it. That's what hurts the most. It's absolutely heartbreaking especially since I've spent years getting to know him and all these characters. I am a broken-hearted person after this. The worst part is, it only gets WORSE from here. Sasuke and Itachi are battling it out now in one of the most epic fights of the series and we are finding out more about why Itachi did the things he did...my poor little heart is not ready for the next volume. Beautiful.

As for others, Sasuke has made his little group who he thinks are ready for the journey, as he set for to kill his older brother, Itachi Uchiha, who had massacred their own village, who had joined the Akatsuki, where Sasuke intends to gain revenge for his village and probably a real answer on why he had killed the entire clan and only allow his brother, or himself, Sasuke Uchiha to live.

    So, quite a bit happening here. The first few chapters (view spoiler)[end the Jiraiya-Pain conflict, and while I knew what was coming it still hurt. I particularly loved chapter 382, and the whole Jiraiya-Minato-Naruto thing. Aslo, Naruto was obviously the child from the prophecy (hide spoiler)] . Then we have (view spoiler)[a bit of Naruto and the others with Tobi/Madara, and then the focus is on Sasuke and Itachi (hide spoiler)] . Those scenes were really good, especially the whole (view spoiler)[ So, quite a bit happening here.

    Back at it again finally!! This volume was jam packed with material. From the conclusion of the Pain vs Jiraiya (such a sad moment). To Naruto and gang running into Tobi aka Madara. To the moment we have been waiting for, the showdown between Sasuke and Itachi!! I do wish however they focused more on Jiraiya because we don't really get to mourn over his death because we are shoved right into the Uchiha battle. Back at it again finally!!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Jiraiya's journey is extremely well written, with flashbacks to the past showing how he took care of the Namato and the other kids and some reveals about the Fourth Hokage. Even though we knew that he probably wouldn't return to Hidden leaf, watching him fight, unleashing Sage Mode, and ultimately even pushing away death for some time by getting inspired from his godson Naruto was an endearing experience.

    With the skills between brothers, who will win, Itachi or Sasuke? It was also really cool to learn a little more about the history of the sharengan. The strength and the โ€œtrue powerโ€ you could obtain. Throws a twist in there with the one person everyone assumed was dead. The person who created the hidden leaf village, Madara. I just want to see who wins this fight. They are both so strong, but only one will survive. Who will it be? Letโ€™s find out.

    Why's there so much Pain in this volume? (pun intended) I knew, after that long sentimental farewell to Jiraiya-sama, that something is going to happen. Why! I was literally sobbing while reading this. Getting killed by one's own pupil. That's too low! Yes it has happened before, but this was way too pathetic! Especially with those flashbacks and internal monologues about Naruto! I can't believe Jiraiya-sama died that way. Why's there so much Pain in this volume?

    Jiraiyaโ€™s last moments alive are shown in this volume and incredibly sad since Iโ€™ve grown to love the Pervy Sage. Most of this volume was of Sasuke finding Itachi then the brothers fighting. Some information about Madara Uchiha and the different abilities that an Uchiha clan member can do, are also revealed during the brothersโ€™ fight.

    Jiraiya's arc comes to a close as we shift focus to Sasuke and Itachi finally going at it. There's not much to say about this volume other than spoilers, there are some massive reveals and a lot of really cool jutsu as you see Sasuke and Itachi slowly testing the other. It's a fantastic volume and this part of the series is one of the highlights in all of Naruto. Jiraiya's arc comes to a close as we shift focus to Sasuke and Itachi finally going at it.
