MANGA: NARUTO vol. 56 Preview


In this latest volume of Naruto, Kabuto resurrects the corpses of fallen warriors to fight Madara’s war against the world’s Allied Shinobi Forces! Darui, a soldier from the Land of Lightning’s Kumogakure confronts Ginkaku and Kinkaku, two of the worst criminals in his village's history!

Ginkaku and Kinkaku once tried to capture the Nine-Tailed Fox, but were eaten instead. They somehow managed to live inside the Fox’s stomach for two weeks, and when they came out, they had absorbed enough of the tailed beast's chakra to wield the normally debilitating Five Treasured Tools of the Sage of Six Paths! Can Darui take them down the Gold and Silver Brothers?

Meanwhile, Ino, Shikamaru, and Choji experience firsthand the horrible atrocities of war when they are forced to fight against their former mentor, Asuma! Though the team has made impressive strides since they lost their teacher, Choji just can’t bring himself to raise a hand against Asuma. Can the trio overcome their shock and battle against the very shinobi who helped mold them into the ninja they are today?

War comes to every corner of the ninja world in Naruto vol. 56, on sale May 8!
