5.0 out of 5 stars Practice makes Perfect 29 April 2011
By Sarah A
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Naruto Volume 38 contains chapters 340 to 349 and 2 Naruto bookmarks!

The battle against Kakuzu concludes and Naruto tries out his new move!
Plus Sasuke vs Orochimaru!
We also meet some new characters, Suigetsu, Karin and Jugo.

The only thing that annoyed me about this volume is the censoring for Konohamaru's new technique... you'll see what I mean when you read this volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naruto Volume 38 13 Mar 2009
By D. Clopton - Published on
*Note that the following review may contain spoilers*

I have been collecting the Naruto manga from volume 28 which, as far as the anime adaptation is concerned, the start of Naruto Shippuden. I have to say that I'm a little disappointed with Viz's editing habits in these volumes. For the purpose of this review I will only discuss the editing that is done in this volume, not the other ones. Aside from some of the swearing being toned down there are two major incidents of editing done in this volume. The first being on the eighth page of chapter 347. Konohamaru shows off his improved version of "sexy justsu," to Naruto which involves two naked women holding each other. In the original version you can actually see the women's faces and bodies, although even in the original nothing explicit is shown. In this version you can only see the women's silhouette's. There is another similar instance two pages later involving Sasuke and Sai in similar positions. Again, you can only see their silhouette's. This editing is a problem for me but not really a deal breaker.

The manga continues from where we left off in volume 37 with Naruto and company battling it out with an Akatsuki member. This particular volume contains a very important scene involving Sasuke and Orochimaru; it is so important that I cannot talk too much about the second half of the volume without spoiling everything unfortunately.

If you have been keeping up with this series until now there should be no reason why you wouldn't purchase this volume as well. Viz has included two bookmarks in this volume featuring Naruto on both of them. There are also bookmarks in volume's 39 and 40. Volume 41, however, does not contain bookmarks but stickers. As of this review 41 volumes of Naruto have been released in America and come April Volumes 42-44 will be released. At this point America will have all but caught up to the Japanese releases.

Naruto truly is an amazing manga. The story is still compelling and Kishimoto-kun is still going strong with the storyline.

Perfect condition, I usually get small nicks on the spine or a small bend in the cover (those drive me crazy) but this book came to me shiny, unharmed. A true hot of the press condition.
5 stars.
