Beginner Japanese Book Club // Now Reading: 気になってる人が男じゃなかった // Next 葬送のフリーレン, then ウスズミの果て

** ナルト - Naruto**

“‘With a richly detailed background, complex, sympathetic characters, superb action and a main character who somehow balances tragedy with comedy, this is a series that delivers in every way. So strap on your leaf headband and join the oddest ninja in town. You won’t regret it. 4/5’ NEO magazine”

Personal Opinion
Though the story is told through Ninjas, it is still a story about people and getting through hardship. Naruto is a very lonely orphan with no friends and through their trials he grows as a person and finds his place, and becomes a beloved member of the society.

Naruto, being as popular as it is, might pull in new members to the book club (while others might have an aversion to it…)
