At this point, we're not even three chapters from THE END OF NARUTO, and yet I'm left with little to comment on. That's not to say that these last few chapters have been bad, or the ending especially shallow, but simply that as far as "endings" go, there's simply not that much "happening" in a narrative sense. read feature

Congratulations!
Welcome (again) to the second incarnation of this week's Annotated Manga for Naruto! It seems that some technical foulup wiped all the text from the recap while the watchers were looking the other way (or asleep). Never fear, though, for a good ninja always keeps a backup, and this is it. Apologies for the mixup! read feature

You were nearly a Kaguya sandwich!
Just a couple of weeks ago - when the last chapter of Naruto hit the presses - I mentioned how it unusual it was that Kakashi got a straight-up power upgrade, thanks to dear, departed Obito. After all, the typical high-stakes Naruto fight almost never leaves the proceedings up to raw strength, and yet here's Kakashi with the only thing better than having one Sharingan - two Sharingan! read feature

Annotated Manga: Naruto chapter 683


Your face when redeemed

It's time now for a bit more Naruto, and to be honest, there's not all that much to say about the latest chapter despite the copious amounts of talking they do. And without a truly striking image to latch onto, the last week in Naruto ends up as yet more place-setting for the next set of steps in the fight, as well as another potentially infuriating hint-drop. read
