Holy revelations and battles Naruto fans! The new Team Kakashi sans Kakashi and with Yamato as the leader goes to discover who the Akatsuki spy is in Orochimaru’s camp. It’s Kabuto! That double-crossing ninja shows his hand and the cards he holds…whoa! But what no one realized is that there is someone else spying on the spies! Orochimaru is there and he strikes out to gain what he wants most – a look at the nine-tailed fox aka Naruto!
My, oh my, the things one learns this volume! First, we find out how snaky Kabuto really is. He’s a good match as Orochimaru’s right hand, any possible double-crossing or triple-crossing aside. As for Orochimaru, he lashes out with an evil plan to enrage Naruto and awaken the fox demon within him. And he does! In order to save his friend Sasuke, Naruto boils over with fury at the sight of Orochimaru. The seals burst and four of the nine tails are seen breaking out, causing devastating power when Naruto looses control. That’s right, Naruto is demonic and he’s no longer in charge, only his rage and destructive force is driving behind that wheel and he’s hurting friend and foe alike! That’s when we learn exactly why Yamato was chosen to be the new team leader while Kakashi recovers. It all has to do with the first Hokage and shows why Naruto can use the First Hokage technique plus Orochimaru tells his entire devilish secret that has to do directly with Naruto! It’s a whopper of tell all!
The other big and nasty thing that happens is the secret mission Sai is on. Now, they don’t tell you exactly what is going down to the letter, but speaking of double agents… Sai is looking like he’s not in the Leaf Village’s corner. At least, not on the side of the current Hokage. Someone seems to be planning a coup and things are about to get super ugly both at home and out on the field!
It’s a serious stunner of a volume in this manga that Naruto fans cannot afford to miss. Wow, do they ever know how to leave you chomping at the bit for more!
Feel the fury of the nine-tailed fox in the latest action packed volume of Naruto!
