Naruto volumes digital colored versions

  • Does anyone have access for obtaining the digitized colored versions of Naruto volumes? According to the Shonen Jump website, they released about 59 volumes of those colored volumes so far. It may help us for more clarifications about the characters appearances colors and so on. (Source)

    • I wish I could help you out, my friend. I have seen that months ago, and I tried looking into it, but I unfortunately could not find anything. If anyone has any information on these, it would be greatly appreciated.

    • Wow, I knew this was done for Dragon Ball and Bleach, but not Naruto. Really curious if they keep Naruto's Rasengan yellow (even though Kishimoto doesn't anymore) and give everyone different chakra colours, or just go with the anime's blue.

      I don't know about Viz and I checked their website but I couldn't find anything about that. Seems it's exclusively to the Japanese version.

    • I see. Is the coloration done by Kishimoto? That should be checked out first, otherwise a purchase would be an absolute waste. @Beyond, Kishimoto draws Naruto's Rasengan yellow because his chakra is of yellow color, so is Hashirama's we know now, since it was Ashura's too :P But I'm puzzled about this myself, because it has been yellow in all instances but one, having been drawn blue on Volume 67 cover instead. Although he is drawn there using the Rasengan together with Minato. So not sure what to conclude of that.

      It's also been blue on several Weekly Jump covers in the last couple of years, but not sure who colours those. Nine-Tails Chakra Mode also changed to look more like the anime's orange version on the Volume 64 cover, like Kishimoto or whoever colours the covers is finally just giving in to the anime's changes.

      Seems it looks like what they did exactly in chapter #638. It's a contribution work between Kishimoto as the story creator, Shonen Jump as the manga anthology and Shueisha as the publisher.

        Loading editor
    • @Beyond, Kishi doesn't color the magazine covers, the magazine's publisher does. And nah, chakra mode has always been yellow with a dark orange/reddish tint. @Shak, only if Kishi colors the chapters has it any merit. But I suppose he does, otherwise I can't imagine what other role would he have in it.

        Loading editor
    • @Elveonora There's no reason to assume that Kishi has any involvement in this. Colouring all those pages would take a lot of time, he's already busy doing one black and white chapter each week. It's far more likely that someone else is given that task, but that in no way discounts their usefulness. It's an official source, just like the anime. If it has a coloured version of an image we need then there's no reason we shouldn't use it, but we should scrutinise it as we do the anime.

      Going by what they've made freely available I've noticed a couple of things. One is that some things are miscoloured (see the Hokage in the first chapter). (EDIT: Turns out its not miscoloured, its based on the colouring of Volume 14's cover). There also seems to be quite a significant gap between the release of the standard volumes and these coloured versions. As far as I can tell they seem to be well behind the anime which may limit their usefulness somewhat.

    • So by using the first chapter preview on the site, I can tell you the Rasengan is yellow in chapter 227, towards the end of Part 1. That's the earliest view of it I can get. The most recent is chapter 545 (the first chapter of the second most recent colour volume), where Naruto uses Mini-Rasenshuriken, Spiralling Absorption Sphere and Spiralling Strife Spheres, all of which are depicted as yellow.

      You can't just badmouth an entire community that does excellent job at coloring the chapters every week. If you noticed from Opening 15, they even colored the Shinju based on the colors that Color Kage chose. Therefore, it seems like the anime is even using the color schemes from that group to color the anime. So explain to me, and I mean give a good thought-out explanation, not a two sentence statement that has no weight, as to why you think they "suck", when they are actually very talented!

    • The Color Kage has amateur colorings in their art. The art is blurry, as if they used water paint. Most of the time they overwrite black lines with color. The official colored chapters are better ALTOGETHER, I can't even look at a Color Kage chapter it's just blegh.

        Loading editor
    • I think a lot of people agree with me that the official coloring looks and is better.

    • While I do agree that the official colored chapters do look better- that is a given. They are professional. However, you have to admire the passion of the Color Kages. I personally think they do a terrific job, and I look forward to every Monday night when I can reread the chapter from the previous week in color. You will never convince me otherwise.

I wouldnt call them the greatest artists of history or the world, but the fact that they dedicate such time and effort to such an awesome manga is admirable at least. Not to mention that they are doing it for free.

        Loading editor
    • Also, they make it a lot easier to understand when insane action is happening. And like I said, the anime seems to be using their color scheme to animate the episodes, and so it's not like their effort is "pointless."

    • These were published in bulk in December 2012, as part of the Jump Comics Digital imprint. They've done several Digital Colored Comics series now. According to Viz's publication of Dragon Ball Full Color, colorization is handled by Shueisha's production team. Probably under some supervision from Kishimoto or his editors. They also obviously contain the original color pages by Kishimoto, which are grayscaled in the standard tankobon. In either case, the place they hold in canon, such as it is, would probably be ahead of the anime adaptation.

      It's also notable that the colorization adheres to Kishimoto's style, so, for example the colors and shading technique are the same, which makes them look pretty authentic.

      Unfortunately, they're not that easy to download outside of Japan. They're available through most major Japanese ebook publishers, but most require a Japanese credit card or some sort of proprietary e-reader or app that's only available domestically.

      I've considered unregistering my Android tablet from Amazon.com so that I could purchase them from Amazon Japan, but even then you can apparently only make 5 purchases from outside of Japan before triggering their anti-fraud stuff, at which point you have to go through this confirmation process.

      The NicoNico manga shop might work, since I believe you can purchase NicoPoints with WebMoney.

      Not that I can afford to buy them all. I did use some software to rip the free preview chapters of all 59 volumes, however. I can upload them when I get home.

      Just the previews, unfortunately. 57 pages for Volume 1, 15 pages for the rest. There's no way to rip the full volumes without actually owning them.

      If any wealthy benefactor does wants to buy some of these, Nico Nico Douga is probably the way to go, since it uses a browser viewer and I can actually rip the image files from that site.

      http://seiga.nicovideo.jp/book/series/11557

      The first volume costs 100 Nico Points (100 yen, about $1 USD) and the other 58 cost 400 Nico Points (400 yen, about $3.90 USD) a volume. That's 23,300 Nico Points (23,300 yen, about $230 USD) for the complete set, which is really pricey and certainly well outside of my price range.

      They've also got the original monochrome volumes through volume 67, which are 300 Nico Points (300 yen, about $2.90 USD), and three free "Starter Books" which I haven't looked at, but will go ahead and rip now.


      One of the things I mentioned before was how the coloring style is consistent with Kishimoto's, and as you go through these, you can actually see that they change coloring style to match his color pages as the series goes on. Most noticeably with the switch to Part 2. Pretty cool.

      Shueisha is the owner and publisher of Weekly Shonen Jump, as well as pretty much any print media for any Jump Comics franchise. They also co-own Viz Media, the English publisher of Naruto and Weekly Shonen Jump.

      The manga volumes, the light novels, the artbooks, the anime comic adaptations ("animanga"), the databooks, even the video game strategy guides, are all ultimately published by Shueisha under various imprints (Jump Comics, Jump jBooks, V-Jump Game Books, etc.).

      Unless you mean the specific people working on the books, in which case no, probably not. These would be colorists hired by Shueisha working under the supervision of editors, probably with some degree of input from Kishimoto and/or his assistants or editors. There's no way of knowing who actually did what work, as there's no credits in the books. Just "© Masashi Kishimoto, Scott 2014", "Scott" being the name of Kishimoto's studio.

      That's only true if there is no contradiction between the anime adaption and the colored manga adaption in terms of coloring and so on.

    • True- I think if the anime royally screws up what Kishi was trying to portray, then the manga stills should be used instead of the anime. However, if the anime portrays what Kishi wrote in the anime correctly, then I think the anime stills should be used instead. I guess I should be kind of worried that Narutopedia has found these colored chapters...

I've got a few specific volumes in mind already, but is there anything in particular people want images of or to be confirmed colouring-wise?

    • I managed to buy a few of these, and overall they're really nice, but maybe not the definitive correct colour guide some were hoping for. For anybody curious about some of the colouring decisions:

      • They went the anime route with chakra and made it a generic colour (pinkish in the Land of Waves arc, the anime's light blue for the rest). However, Rasengan and its variants are always yellow, regardless of the user.
      • Sometimes Kishimoto's coloured pages have been inconsistent. For some of these instances, they picked a "side" and stuck with it: Gaara's hair and Jiraiya's markings are always red, reincarnated people have their regular skin tone instead of pale/grey. For others, they start with one colouring scheme and then abruptly switch to the other: the Hokage outfit starts out grey but changes to the familiar red by the Konoha Crash, Shukaku's cursed seal changes from blue to black and then stays that way.
      • For whatever reason, they chose to go with the anime colours over the manga colours for certain things: Ino's eyes are blue, Tailed Beast Ball is red+blue=purple (as of Volume 53 at least), the Hashirama-clone-flower is brown and purple, and the Kin-Gin Brothers have their anime colour schemes.
      • Other times they corrected the anime's mistakes: the Kazekage's outfit is green, Itachi's Susanoo and A's Raiton Armour are both yellow, Mystical Palm is blue, Sakon/Ukon and Tayuya have their correct hair colours, Konan and Yahiko have correct eye/piercing colours, B's tattoos are black, Melting Apparition is more orange, and Naruto's eyes are red while fighting Kakuzu.
      • Some other little anomalies: Version 1 is orange (likely based on Volume 40's back cover), but Naruto's "initial form" and Version 2 are still red. When a reincarnated person's personality is suppressed, their eyes turn red and black instead of white and black. Kakuzu's masks have the same colours as in the anime, but his manga-only fifth(?!) mask is entirely white.

    • @Elveonora It is canon no matter how much you wish it wasn't. It's a official source just as much as the anime is. Also you do realize that those volumes were about 10 volumes before we saw what the Rinnegan actually was colored like. People change their mind, Kishimoto is human just like the rest of us. This is his story and he is allowed to change colors as he sees fit because he wants to show and tell the best story he can. True he might not have colored all the digital pages but doesn't change the fact that they're official.

        Loading editor
    • It's not that they're non-canon, but it is more evidence that any involvement from Kish/his team is limited at best. There are a number of occasions where the digital comics use the anime colourings when Kishi's team have not released any. For example, the second mizukage was never coloured by Kishi's team in the manga, so the Shueisha team went for the only available colourings, the anime.

      They're official, and useful in many cases. But in terms of the colours used, they should be treated just as the anime is. If they colour something before Kishi's team does, then we have to be aware that it may not end up being 100% accurate.

    • @Elveonora Let me restate what I meant then. I think the colorings should be treated a bit higher than the anime as they use the black and white manga as it's source, just with added color. The anime has to animate everything so it's going to look different and they color it the way they think best. It's fine for you to not think it's canon, you are entitled to your opinion. Though I consider the canon to go like this, Manga, Databook, Colored Manga, Anime, OVA and Movies, then Games and other things. Though I don't know how this site will think of it as we only have some opinions and not everyone's.

    • IMO, I think the anime, while not completely canon, official, or whatever, should be the major definitive way to determine color scheme. If Kishi didn't like something the anime colored, they could easily have changed it. Therefore, Kishi is probably happy with how the anime is handled, and so I think the anime still reigns higher than these colored volumes.

    • No... Kishimoto doesn't oversee the anime at all. They even purposely decide their own colors, like changing eye and hair color for no good reason and so on. Ino's eyes are blue in the anime since day one, yet Kishimoto has drawn them green and still does as of the 4th War. So he obviously doesn't give a **** what the anime does and they don't correct their mistakes/adjust to Kishimoto either.

      For example Tailed Beast Ball is positive black and negative white chakras in manga, while the anime changed it into positive blue and negative red I believe? Obviously contradicting canon, yet they don't care, neither does Kishimoto, because at the end of the day, he doesn't acknowledge the anime

    • Since the digital colored manga is the exact same as the manga but with color, it should be treated higher than the anime. Even so as the fans we have to include the anime to some extent. Still I will probably purchase some of the colored volumes as I can just have my English volumes for the text and digital for the pictures and color.

    • The issue with that idea is that the digital color comics have been known to use the anime as a basis for things not yet coloured in the manga. There doesn't need to be a competition between the two, just use whichever shows it best.

      Devils advocate here, but Kishi's own team is hardly the most consistent with colourings. Even they've been known to colour Ino's eyes as blue.

    • @Soul, may you please show me where?

    • The coloring method that used in the chapters which they have special colored panels like Naruto with Hagoromo page is different from those digital colored chapters. Take a look of how Kishi colors his characters after sketching them and see the differences between those colors and the digital ones.

    • My main point is that I just don't care how inaccurate the anime's colors is from the manga's. For me (my personal feelings, not yours), the anime is canon when it comes to the colors, even if they are not accurate to the manga's colors. When I see the Rasengan, I think of it as blue, not yellow.

    • We have a colored poster in the next chapter. Hopefully we'll see the true color of Sasuke's Rinnegan or Madara's hair or even Kaguya's colored depiction if possible.

      You make it sound so serious, it's just the color of a series, not some big thing...

      How do you know that? Did it say something at the end of the chapter? Well whatever the matter, that's awesome, and hopefully Sasuke's Rinnegan will be purple!

      It was in the ad for next week's WSJ.

      Says that the next chapter of Naruto will have a "rough sketch & full color double-sided poster."

      Cue Raiga appearing in the manga.

      Oh, yes. He cares so very little. /sarcasm

    • it says 679 but it is actually official colored 678, go check it out guys.

    • @Foxie, Raiga was most likely Kishi's original character. I doubt he went like: "Oh, I'm totally gonna scrap my vision of a swordsmen member and use a filler character instead"

      Seems doubtful, as Raiga was the only member of the Swordsmen of the Mist whose name doesn't fit the naming scheme, and his design generally deviates from the rest (no sharp teeth, no vertical stripes). I think it's more likely that the whole point of that panel was to show him as a nod to the anime, as Kishimoto had previously made Ameyuri the wielder of Kiba.

      Keep in mind that the anime has its own character designers, Tetsuya Nishio and Hirofumi Suzuki.
