It’s definitely a Naruto Nation and there’s enough Naruto love to go around with a wealth of Naruto products (games, toys and gear) already available. Adding to the Shonen Jump issues is a separate Naruto Posterzine with eleven 16 X 22 inch fully colored posters of great art you can expect from the Naruto franchise.

The posters vary from group shots (one featuring Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi-Sensei and Haruka-Sensei but also one light-hearted poster featuring Sakura, Naruto and Shikamaru). Even Gaara fans (you know you’re out there) will have two posters … although my personal favorite is the one entitled “Gaara and his Protective Sand.” There’s even a playful poster of Kakashi and his trust ninja hounds.

Sasuke fans will find a lot to love about the Posterzine as well seeing as three of them feature Naruto and Sasuke together whether they’re jumping into battle as comrades, quietly reflecting the nature of their friendship or (as one of the two Limited Editon bonus images) depicting the memorable hospital rooftop showdown between the two. There’s also a Sasuke walking away from his brother Itachi.

If you’re a Naruto fan or have a Naruto fan in your family, buying this one is a no-brainer. It’s the perfect companion piece for any Naruto completist but – most importantly – it features some really great art that does right by the Naruto brand.

Art: 5/5
The posters are sharp, colorful and wonderfully detailed so you’ll enjoy having these pinned to your walls. These posters definitely capture the feel of the series.

Overall: 5/5
The eleven posters have enough fan favorite characters and even Gaara fans will like the two Gaara posters. This is a Must for any Naruto fan looking for good posters.
