Summary

Summary

Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief, and sealed within him, a strange, formidable power. His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure!

In the course of their training, student ninjas Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke have fought deadly assassins, learned incredible feats of magic and martial arts, and danced along the brink of death. Now they're facing the most terrifying challenge of all: exams.

The three ninjas-in-training have signed up for the Journeyman Ninja Selection Exams, which they must pass if they ever want to advance to the rank of full-fledged shinobi. They learn too late how grueling and dangerous the exams are. If the tests of skill, stealth, and battle prowess don't kill them, their fellow junior ninja will. And, since the three pass or fail as a group, they're only as strong as their weakest link...Naruto!


Author Notes

Author/artist Masashi Kishimoto was born in 1974 in rural Okayama Prefecture, Japan. After spending time in art college, he won the Hop Step Award for new manga artists with his manga Karakuri (Mechanism). His first version of Naruto, drawn in 1997, was a one-shot story about fox spirits; his final version, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, quickly became the most popular ninja manga in Japan. Kishimoto has written more than 70 volumes in the series, several of which, have made The New York Times Best Seller List.
