In this volume, Naruto and his teammates Sakura and Sasuke enter the exams to qualify as journeymen ninja. We get to know some of the other young ninja, their classmates, as well as rivals from other areas. The teams must navigate the "Forest of Death" in a sort of capture-the-flag competition, where they must get two scrolls and make it to the tower in five days. But one sinister ninja assassin, Orochimaru the snake, has snuck in, disguised as a student, with his sights set on Sasuke!

Vol.4 - Non-stop Ninja action as the three finish their mission and battle with Zabuza. Then back home to training and they find out all three of them will be competing in the Chunin exam to move up in rank. We meet some other contestants from other villages. All do not seem very nice at all! (4/5)Vol. 5 - The competition begins but first some creepy short kid with a Beatles haircut and a unibrow crushes on Sakura and fights to win/impress her. Adults is freaked. We meet more contestants and get to them. There seems to be a nice one on a few of the other teams. Then off to the first exam which stuns everyone by being intellectual. Book ends just at the start of the second exam which seems like it is going to be brutal. (4/5)Vol. 6 - The second exam takes place in the Forest of Death and only half of the teams will survive this one. Things turn deadly though as a powerful being enters the Forest to play havoc with the apprentices. Lots and lots and lots of action, while Sakura And Rock Lee experience the most character development. Rock turns out to be not so creepy as he was when first introduced. Best of all is the introduction of a twisted villain with a freaky long snake tongue. (3/5)
