List of Naruto chapters (Part II, volumes 49-current)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Naruto manga series, written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, is split in two parts to divide the storyline; the second part is simply known as Part II.[1][2] The plot follows the return of the ninja Naruto Uzumaki to Konohagakure, after two and a half years of training after leaving his teammates Sakura Haruno and Kakashi Hatake, and his subsequent efforts to make his best friend, Sasuke Uchiha, return with him and his friends. However, the criminal organization Akatsuki begins to hunt Naruto to get the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox that is sealed within him.

Part II starts at chapter 245 and is set two and a half years after the conclusion of chapter 238 in Part I. Chapters 239 through 244 form a gaiden set before the Naruto manga and detail part of Kakashi Hatake's history. All subsequent chapters are considered to be part of the Part II storyline. Naruto is published in individual chapters by Shueisha in Weekly Shōnen Jump and is later collected in tankōbon format with various extras. While the series started serialization in issue 43 of 1999, Part II started in issue 19 of 2005.[1] Volume 49 was released on January 4, 2010, while the latest one is volume 71, released on November 4, 2014.[3][4]

An anime adaptation of Part II, produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, started to air on February 15, 2007, on TV Tokyo under the name Naruto Shippuden (NARUTO -ナルト- 疾風伝 Naruto Shippūden?, literally, Naruto: Hurricane Chronicles). These episodes began to air immediately after the end of the original Naruto anime, which had been showing filler episodes in order to widen the plot gap between the anime and the manga.[5]

The English serialization of the Naruto manga is licensed by Viz Media and is currently published simultaneously in North America in the Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine.[6] It was originally serialized in the now-defunct monthly Shonen Jump print magazine. English language trade volumes are published both in print and digitally through Viz Media's Viz Manga website. To compensate for occasional gaps between the Japanese and English adaptations of the manga, Viz Media has periodically announced special campaigns during which they release several volumes within a relatively short period of time.[2][7] Volume 49 was released in English by Viz Media on October 5, 2010, and most recently volume 67 was released on October 7, 2014.[8][9]

The fox's strength and corruptive qualities are too much for him and he is almost beaten, but the spirit of Kushina Uzumaki intervenes, stopping the fox's spread and, by revealing herself to be Naruto's mother, gives Naruto the resolve to contain the fox on his own. Kushina then tells Naruto how the demon fox was originally sealed inside herself, how Madara Uchiha used the fox to attack Konoha, and how Kushina and Minato, believing Naruto would someday be the one to defeat Madara, gave their lives to seal the fox's power into him. Although Kushina feels guilty about what Naruto has been through, he does not blame her, allowing her to pass on with no regrets.

Madara, meanwhile, goes to Amegakure to retrieve Nagato's body, killing Konan in the process when she tries to stop him. Once he receives Kisame's intel, Madara sends Kabuto Yakushi, who has allied with Akatsuki, to capture Bee and Naruto. The two are too well-defended, so Kabuto settles for kidnapping Yamato.

Both Sasuke and Itachi remain on the defensive until the latter activates a forbidden technique that traps Kabuto's mind in a loop where the fight against the Uchiha never ends. With Kabuto unable to move, Itachi uses his Genjutsu to have him unsummon all the dead ninja.
