Minato Namikaze – Ventus Studios
Minato Namikaze – Ventus Studios: Minato Namikaze, a character from the Japanese manga series “Naruto” and its derivative works. He was the Fourth Hokage of Konohagakure, one of the Legendary Sannin Jiraiya’s disciples, and Naruto Uzumaki’s father. He was extremely powerful, having created the Rasengan, and sacrificed himself to seal the Nine-Tails inside Naruto to protect the village.
During the Fourth Shinobi World War, he was temporarily revived by Orochimaru’s Impure World Reincarnation to join the previous Hokage in going to the battlefield to support the Allied Shinobi Forces. He fought alongside Naruto before his soul returned to the afterlife after the war.
He had a tolerant and gentle personality, and was a sunny, handsome, and kind man. Though shy in disposition, he could also be solemn and cautious when facing enemies. A bit absent-minded, he liked to give his techniques overly long names, which amused Tobirama during the war.
He had blond hair and blue eyes, and wore the standard Konoha-nin uniform with a flak jacket, along with a short-sleeved long white haori decorated by flame-like motifs on the edges, with the kanji for “Fourth Hokage” written vertically down the back.
On the day Naruto was born, Minato was overjoyed with tears. But suddenly, a masked man appeared, killed all attending medics except Minato’s family, and took Naruto hostage to threaten Minato. The masked man aimed to release the Nine-Tails sealed within Kushina to attack Konoha. Although Minato rescued Naruto, the masked man kidnapped Kushina and unsealed the Nine-Tails, letting it rampage through Konoha under his control. After two exchanges, Minato badly injured the masked man with his Flying Thunder God and Rasengan, then released the Nine-Tails from his control with a contract seal. The masked man fled after leaving a warning.
Overall, this is a very good work! Fans of Naruto will not want to miss this figure!
