Naruto is arguably the biggest anime in the world right now. The original manga run is over, but the television show has used fillers to drag out what has to be at least another year. Not to mention that if you watch a dubbed version, you are already years behind the story. There are also movies coming out, I believe a continuation series coming out focusing on Naruto’s Son, and we also have novels! The Naruto Novels are in-depth stories focusing on key figures in the Naruto Universe. Our friends over at VIZ let us check out Itachi’s Story: Daylight.

Itachi’s Story: Daylight is about Uchiha Itachi, arguably the greatest shinobi of the Uchiha Clan, second to Madara. The story begins with Itachi at 4 years old, being brought to the aftermath of a battle by his father. It is here Itachi acquires his unbreakable resolve. The lesson intended was for Itachi, as a ninja, to know that this is what the world has in store for him. However, Itachi vowed to change the world. Next, Itachi is now a bit older, dutifully training to be a great ninja. He is leaps and bounds ahead of his peers, and the gap is only widening. Around this time, Itachi gets a sibling; a younger brother named Sasuke. From the first time Itachi touched Sasuke, his resolve to change the world only strengthened, and expanded to include Sasuke. Itachi not only wished to change the world, but he now had a person to change it for. The rest of the story follows Itachi’s trials and tribulations, all of which end with amazing feats and accomplishments by Itachi, and how he becomes the youngest member of the Anbu. With his new high ranking position, the Uchiha Clan’s plot to overthrow Konoha is revealed, and Itachi is left uncertain of his role.

Itachi is personally one of my favorite characters of the series. He seems to always be one step ahead of everyone and is willing to do absolutely anything to get the job done. Getting an inside perspective of Itachi’s thoughts and experience is something  I always wondered about. This guy killed his whole family to save his brother and for what he believes is the betterment of the world. That is a crazy decision, at most I think a person would be able to passively allow something like that to happen but to actively cause the death of your family for any reason is insane. Seeing how Itachi discovered his purpose and gained his conviction is a truly interesting perspective and really helps flesh out the character.

The one big critique I have with this book is that it doesn’t feel like enough story. Since fans of the series will of the events as a whole, it seems weird to end it where it did. I kind of think the whole story should have been in one big book, but then again I might never have finished it. Also, the book comes off as if the reader knows the world and lore of Naruto and probably would not be good for a reader who is unfamiliar with the franchise.

Overall, Itachi’s Story: Daylight is a great read for fans of Naruto. It really fleshes out Uchiha Itachi’s character and shows the multiple factors that created the situation of the Uchiha Clan’s fall. It’s not a black and white situation, and not a situation with an easy solution, but one that requires a decision to be made. It’s really intriguing to see the situation develop, and the state of Konoha under the 3rd Hokage’s rule. Itachi’s Story adds an amazing level of depth to the franchise that creates an even greater appreciation for it as a whole. I give my Itachi’s Story: Daylight Review a 3.8/5 Stars.

Itachi’s Story: Daylight is available on Amazon,
