About the Author
Masashi Kishimoto is a renowned manga artist from Japan, who is famous for creating the popular manga series Naruto. Interestingly, his twin brother, Seishi Kishimoto, is also a manga artist and has created successful manga series like O-Parts Hunter (666 Satan) and Blazer Drive.
Some of Kishimoto’s former assistants, such as Osamu Kajisa (Tattoo Hearts) and Yuuichi Itakura (Hand’s), have also achieved moderate success after working with him on Naruto.
Kishimoto’s journey as a manga artist began with Karakuri (カラクリ?), which he submitted to Shueisha in 1995. His hard work paid off when he won the “Hop Step Award” by Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1996, given to promising new manga artists.
He continued to gain recognition in the industry, and in 1997, he published a pilot version of Naruto (NARUTO－ナルト－) in Akamaru Jump Summer. In 1998, he made his debut as a Weekly Shōnen Jump artist with a serialized version of Karakuri.
Unfortunately, it failed to connect with the audience and was discontinued soon after. However, Kishimoto did not give up and in 1999, he returned with a serialized version of Naruto, which became an instant hit and established him as a leading manga artist.
Naruto, Vol. 02: The Worst Client by Masashi Kishimoto is an action-packed manga that follows the adventures of a young ninja named Naruto Uzumaki.
The book was originally published on June 2, 2000, and is a continuation of the popular Naruto series. The author, Masashi Kishimoto, is a well-known manga artist and has received several awards for his work.
In this book, Naruto and his teammates Sasuke and Sakura are given a mission to escort a wealthy businessman named Tazuna. However, they soon find out that their client is in danger from a group of skilled assassins called the Demon Brothers.
The team must overcome several obstacles and use their ninja skills to protect Tazuna and complete their mission. One of the strengths of Naruto, Vol.
02: The Worst Client is the dynamic and complex characterization of the main characters. Despite being a manga primarily aimed at a younger audience, Kishimoto creates well-rounded characters with individual personalities, motivations, and flaws.
The interactions between the characters are also well-written and showcase their growth and development throughout the series. Additionally, the book’s pacing and plot structure are well crafted, making it an engaging read.
The action scenes are also well-drawn and easy to follow, adding to the excitement of the story. The setting of the Naruto universe is richly detailed, and the culture of ninjas is explored in an interesting and engaging way.
However, one of the limitations of the book is its reliance on clich shonen tropes, such as power-ups and deus ex machina moments, to resolve conflicts. Some readers may also find the dialogues to be too expository at times, which may detract from the overall reading experience.
Overall, Naruto, Vol. 02: The Worst Client is an exceptional manga that offers a compelling story with memorable characters and a richly detailed universe.
It is a must-read for fans of the Naruto franchise or anyone who enjoys action-packed manga. Therefore, I recommend this book to teenagers and young adults who have an interest in manga or Japanese culture.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 because of its engaging characters, artistry, and intricate world-building.
