About the Author

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). Kishimoto decided to base his next story on traditional Japanese culture. 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.

Naruto volume 53 is one of the most notable/memorable of the series, simply because it's just that good of a read. As you see in the cover, you learn the back-story of Naruto Uzumaki's birth and parents, as well as the formidable foe that results to their premature demise. I definitely recommend this volume especially if you are an avid fan of Naruto or if your just looking for an enjoyable manga read.

*Spoiler* In this volume of Naruto we find the main protagonist Naruto in training with Killer Bee to leran how to control his Biju at the "Waterfall of Truth". During his struggles with his nine-tail fox demon a mysterious women shows up and claims to be his mother. As the story progresses The women named Kushina reveals Naruto's past in the most detailed, accruate, vivid way I have ever read. This volume is a "question solver". Naruto volume 53 is a great read and I highly recommend it to any Naruto fan.

I've been reading Naruto for over ten years now (this fact occasionally alarms me, but then I tell myself that I'm not really old, I just had the good fortune to have Shonen Jump to read as a teenager), and though I often fall behind on Naruto, I always come back to it eventually. Volume #53 is a great example of just why that is. After all these years, Masashi Kishimoto continues to deliver stories that are by turns exciting, unnerving, and moving. Though I'm sorry that we probably won't get to see more of Naruto's parents for a while, it was great to finally learn how he became the Nine Tails jinchuriki. Now that Naruto has learned to control Nine Tales a bit better, volume #54 promises to be pretty action packed. Who knows? Maybe I'll still be reading Naruto ten years from now...

This is one of my favorite volumes of the manga. It's very emotional and finally lets Naruto have that motherly bond he wanted.

Anyone who is a fan should continue picking these up. A hugely popular series in Japan and the United States, and for good reason. It's entertaining all around, and keep you coming back for more.
