Elite ninja Uchiha Sasuke travels the land with his teammates searching for his brother Itachi. Can Sasuke stay out of trouble—and kindergarten—long enough to actually get his revenge?!
This episodic comedy spin-off follows the misadventures of the most infamous member of the Naruto books. Sasuke and his villain team, juxtaposed onto the page as adorable chibi (cute) characters, deal with a myriad of two-page escapades involving dysfunctional ninja Christmases and problems with an overly warm kotatsu (heated table). While the art style and jokes are so intense that they can only be read a few at a time without bringing on a headache, the book offers a deep and playful knowledge of the characters that will readily amuse any fan of the original series. Taira, a former assistant of Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto who also helmed the Naruto spin-off Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth, once more delivers the franchise's high artistic and storytelling standards with dexterity, helped along by a punchy translation.
