Naruto volume 55 is the climax to the future and whether the shinobi of the five hidden villages can stand together. This opposition towards Madara uchiha (Obito in secret) has been plotting a scheme to take the nine tailed fox from inside Naruto and use it to control everyone. Even if the worlds imminent destruction is upon the shinobi of the five hidden villages, they still keep together and fight to reach their goal as true hero’s. after Nagato’s death, Naruto saw that the pain he had caused everyone had also been because of him. Even though people were protecting naruto at the start of the war, doesn’t mean he cannot help them to victory. Iruka sensei tried to help Naruto out and killer bee, Naruto’s new teacher has told Iruka that Naruto is his state of mind he is able to concentrate because of Iruka sensei. This makes a perfect relation to our lives this day. People have sought to achieve happiness with one another. But still have fallen into depths beyond return. Even if someone is alone doesn’t mean he can’t be helped. Naruto sees that people will fight for him when he wants to save his comrades from dying because of him. This is how Masashi Kishimoto has portrayed Naruto’s current image and as Naruto strives to save his friends, people also strive to save their families and lives from becoming corrupted by the hatred that lurks in people’s hearts. An amazing climax to a series which has shown so much promise.
