I always wanted to collect Naruto books and these omnibus books make it that much easier to save money doing it.

Naruto was a manga I said I'd never, NEVER read/watch, even made fun of the name.

Heard of Naruto? Of course you have. What anime fan hasn't? Having read Naruto serialized in Shonen Jump, I'm pretty far into the series. But, I never bought it as a graphic novel until now. This 3-in-1 edition contains everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) from volumes 1-3 of the Naruto manga series. Plus, this is like buying 2 volumes and getting one free. It's great!

The only problem I have is that it doesn't include the original volume covers. They could have been used as a title page or something, but Whatever. Other than that, I have no complaints with my purchase and plan on buying the next volume right now! :)

Format: Paperback
WARNING: This review may contain potential spoilers.

The first volume of the Naruto 3-in-1 releases combines the first three volumes of the Naruto manga into one edition. Like the Bleach and Fullmetal Alchemist omnibus editions, the physical height of the volume is not drastically different from the regular manga editions, and a lower quality paper stock is used for the pages.

Naruto, the title character of the series, is an orphan who has decided that he will one day become the Hokage (the leader) of the village where he lives. Unfortunately, Naruto isn't the best of students at the ninja academy, and he's pulling pranks to force people to pay attention to him. It turns out that, unknown to Naruto, the fourth Hokage sealed a fox demon that was attacking the village into Naruto when he was a baby. The Hokage died soon after, and he had hoped that the villagers would view Naruto as a hero. Instead, the adults of the village shunned him, hence why Naruto feels such a need to act outrageously in order to get noticed. The third Hokage, who took the position back after the death of the fourth Hokage, decreed that disclosure of Naruto's secret is strictly forbidden under severe penalty. While Naruto's peers know nothing of his secret, many have picked up their parents' animosity toward him and perpetuate it.

In the first volume, Naruto is tricked by one the ninja academy instructors to steal a sacred scroll. He learns a cloning technique from the scroll that becomes Naruto's signature jutsu during the series. When the traitorous instructor tries to take the scroll from Naruto, he is saved by his teacher, Iruka.

Format: Paperback
Most people think Naruto is stupid kid stuff. They couldn't be more wrong. Others judge it by the very annoying and obnoxious anime on Disney XD. There are no annoying voices in books unless you picture them that way. And the majority of people think Naruto is for the 'scene-type' because of all the 'odd' kids with Naruto headbands. Read it, and your mind might be changed. If you don't like it that's OK, but I think everyone should try it.

The gist of it is that Naruto, a student at Ninja Academy, is the scourge of the town because he holds the power of the evil Nine-Tailed Fox and was never given any attention, so did very stupid things to make himself known. Even though Naruto is far from being a good student, he strives to become Hokage, the leader of his village. After defeating Mizuki in an early conflict, earning him his ninja headband can now begin serious training in with his new training partners, Girly and Sharp-minded Sakura and skilled, moody and mysterious Sasuke. The series is ridiculously long (vol. 56, anyone?) but these new three in one editions they are easier to collect for vetrans and new fans alike. Everyone- Try Naruto!

Since this is in Shonen Jump, my son asked for the first volumes and he got this for his birthday last year. I try to read what he reads so we can talk about it and I want to be versed in the popular titles. This series started way back in the golden age of the '90s so has a lot of typical manga elements from that period. Exaggerated emotions, especially. This used to bother me, but I've read so much now, that I find it fun and nostalgic to read '90s stuff. This omnibus contains Vol. 1: Uzumaki Naruto, Vol. 2: The Worst Client, and Vol. 3: Dreams. I was in love with the book by the end of the first volume as I took to the characters right away and this ninja title hadn't been anything like I thought it would be. The three main characters are great, even though each has a stereotypical type. Throughout the three volumes Naruto changes the most. He starts off as an immature kid, annoying at times, just wanting and assuming he will be the best, biggest hero ever by the end of his training. Well, during the next two volumes, he gets a dose of reality and matures quite a lot that as we enter Vol. 4 we are going to find a different Naruto. The plot revolves around their training to become ninjas, which they complete and then their special training under a master and they begin going out on missions with him while being trained in high level ninja arts at the same time. They've taken a mission to protect a man as he goes home but find that he hasn't told them the whole truth and that a mafia type guy is really after him. Battles ensue. Sasuke's character's background is revealed and some of the mystery about him is lifted. Now the ninjas find out that other assassins have been sent out to kill them (or is it just their master). Battling with a super cool Ninja, Zabuza, is great stuff. I liked this beginning very much. The plot is simple and easy to understand; the characters are likable; the villains fun; and good humour for an all around enjoyable entertaining read.
