This is the article on chapter 430. For volume 46, head to Naruto Returns!!.

"Naruto Returns!!" (ナルト帰還!!, Naruto Kikan!!) is chapter 430 of the original Naruto manga.


Naruto, in Sage Mode, and an attack force of toads arrive in the middle of Konoha. They do not recognise where they are until they see the Hokage Rock, at which point they realise that Pain has destroyed the village. The survivors begin to regroup and the Six Paths of Pain return to the village to face Naruto. Tsunade, despite having exhausted herself from protecting the villagers from the Deva Path's attack, confronts Pain. The Asura Path, having been restored by the Naraka Path, tries to kill her, but Naruto destroys it. He reminds Pain that he is its target and instructs the rest of Konoha not to get involved in their battle.
