After leaving the Jutsu Data section, I found the real goldmine - the "Natultimate Relationship Chart". This section was spread across only two pages facing each other, but it was invaluable for helping me to solidify my understanding of some of the loyalties and arguments between the various characters.
The ending of the Naruto Character Data Book has some interesting fan-generated information, such as favorite scenes and favorite characters. I was intrigued to find out that Naruto himself is not the favorite character of the series, but rather his mentor Kakashi is. There was a Naruto dictionary to close out the book. Words I would have liked to have had included in the dictionary were: chakra, shinobi, jutsu, and hokage.
Armed with my copy of Naruto: the Official Character Data Book, last year's anime wigs and a vaguely thematic costume, I packed for Anime Boston, ready to identify and snap pictures with the characters and have "my manga" that I could speak intelligently about.
