Monday, May 30th, 2005

The cover for Volume 28 has finally been released. This volume marks the start of “part two” of the Naruto series, moving approximately 2.5 years into the future. We’ll get a scan of the full cover once the volume gets released.

Volume 28

Also of note, Cartoon Network aired their preview for the summer/fall Toonami schedule today. A brief Naruto preview with no show dialogue was aired, looks good so far. Hopefully the dubbing studio Viz selected will do us proud.
