Naruto (vol. 47) by Masashi Kishimoto

Naruto, Vol. 47: The Seal Destroyed - Masashi Kishimoto

I know there was lots of fan speculation that the Fourth Hokage was Naruto's father, but I think this might be the first volume that

confirms it. Hurray! The additional revelation that Madara was the one who made Nine Tails attack Konoha years ago was pretty interesting. I also liked that Hinata finally told Naruto how she felt about him. Not that they talked about this at all in the next few volumes. As a NaruHina fan, this annoyed me.

(show spoiler)


So, a lot happened in this volume, but...I'm still glad I'm not buying this series. It could use a lot of tightening up. Also, while I thought this volume was fairly good, I did think that parts of it could have been drawn better. For example, Hinata's brief fight with Pain was hard to follow, to the point that I wasn't entirely sure what happened.
