Backstory and Folklore of Naruto ReferenceUser Review - Overstock.com
This is not only full of information but also a very entertaining read, organized by question headings and indexed twice, by general alphabetical reference and by alphabetized character reference. Each question has a 1-2 page entry, and each is cross-referenced to other relevant answers. I was especially interested in the noting of characters in Japanese folklore and myth on which characters in Naruto are based or which they reference -- like Jiraiya and Tsunade; Orochimaru; Kisune (Kitsune?) -- 9 tailed foxes. It is a wealth of information, not only factual and historic information but also some speculative information -- theories porposed and agreed upon by many before being confirmed -- and information that references things confirmed in later stories than we have read or seen in the U.S. Also included are sources of names and family history and relationships, all things that are revealed through indexing and cross referencing. At its most basic level, this book, like the Harry Potter companion, guide, and clues books, is a great way to keep track of who the characters are and to whom they are connected.
