Exactly. And seeing how Itachi has used it for Kishimoto knows how long, I don't think his eyesite is what it used to be pre-time jump.


And I know Mandara is an Uchiha but who is he? and if he was that good he would have already had is since he is supposed to be so 'evil' so he would be taken out of the equation

huh?

I think Madara might be the Leader, but we still need to find out what his significance is, and how Sauske knew about the Nine-tailed Beast before Naruto did.

I personally don't think so. I don't know who the Akatsuki leader is, but I don't think two sharingan users are members of Akatsuki. I think Madara's past holds clues for naruto to save Sasuke. However, I think Orochimaru will succeed in reincarnating inside of Sasuke but he ends up rejecting him with help from Naruto. Then Sasuke rejoins Team 7, but Orochimaru is still inside of him and acts like the devil on Sasuke's shoulder.

Yeah, the Madara thing doesn't make much sense, but we still need to find out his significance.

Sasuke won't be able to join Team Seven again. First off, he's a rouge nin, running away from Kanoha. That alone will have you marked for death by the ANBU. Secondly, he decided to join Orochimaru, another rouge nin, and by doing that, becomes his accomplince for crimes against humanity. And finally, Sasuke has no need to go back. After he kills Itachi, what more does he need to accomplish? He'd probably go back to Orochimaru and kill him when the time is right, and take over the Sound village. That, or kill himself.

There wouldn't be enough time for Orochimaru to take over Sasuke's body, then reject him. We only have enough time to defeat Akatsuki, try and save Sasuke, and tie up Kakashi Gaiden.

Madara is still kicking it. That makes a possible amount of four.

The seven Akatsuki members left are the Leader, Deidara, Kisame, Blue-Haired Dude, Itachi, Zetsu, and Tobi. Itachi isn't in much of a position to fight though.

Sasori was replaced by Tobi, which means that Kazuku and Hidan will be replaced by their subs, if they have any. So, Akatsuki is slowly, but surely dying. :)

Blue Haired Dude? She is obviously a girl. Every organization has at least one girl member, and she looks quite feminine from the back.

Who are you to say that he won't join again? It's not your manga -_-. Besides, your arguments are very lame.

1. being a rouge nin doesnt mean that sasuke will never get back.. getting sasuke back is naruto's main goal atm.. and since its a shonen manga.. he's bound to complete it
2. I doubt sasuke will ever kill itachi alone.. since itachi is more powerful than he and oro combined thx
3. It's kishi's manga.. are you kishi to say that "we dont have time"? the manga is FAR from being over.. there are a bunch of plot things that need to be resolved

Akatsuki is surely dying? are you sure of that? Al, Itachi, Kisame, Zetsu, and Blue haired girl are very very strong.. so i wouldnt count them all yet.. just because a few members died does not mean they are doomed..

Sasuke has been branded with a death mark. Either he stays with Oro, or he dies as a traitor after returning to Konoha. They aren't just going to forgive him.


2. I doubt sasuke will ever kill itachi alone.. since itachi is more powerful than he and oro combined thx
Hopefully they kill each other.


3. It's kishi's manga.. are you kishi to say that "we dont have time"? the manga is FAR from being over.. there are a bunch of plot things that need to be resolved
Kishi doesn't want the manga to last too long. He'll end it sooner than you think.

We haven't even seen Blue Hair, AL, or Zetsu in action. They could end up being canon fodder (well, except AL) like Hidan and Kazuku.

hmm not really.. just because the chance is small doesnt mean its impossible



Sasuke has been branded with a death mark. Either he stays with Oro, or he dies as a traitor after returning to Konoha. They aren't just going to forgive him.

Are you sure of that? Basically, the goal of the manga is to get back sasuke. If naruto doesnt get sasuke back, he doesnt become hogake and the manga fails. Naruto said it himself: one does not deserve to be hogake if he can't even save his best friend.



Hopefully they kill each other.

Practically impossible of happening.. if itachi > oro.. then itachi > sasuke


Kishi doesn't want the manga to last too long. He'll end it sooner than you think.

Did I say the manga would last for another 6+ years? Nopes.. I know the manga won't last long but the chances are very slim that it is going to end within an year... unless kishi speeds up things a lot


We haven't even seen Blue Hair, AL, or Zetsu in action. They could end up being canon fodder (well, except AL) like Hidan and Kazuku.


Plot-no-jutsu played a part in every akatsuki death so far. Sasori wouldn't have died if he didn't become soft and let himself get killed. Shikamaru had time to plan a lot of traps to catch hidan. Without the prep time, I doubt he could've been able to kill Hidan alone. Kakuzu only died because naruto arrived. Kakashi was near death when they arrived. So I don't think you can say they are weak. It would be stupid if an evil organization was all made up of weak weaklings. I know its inevitable for them to die, but they won't die without a good fight.

Yes, I'm sure of that. We learned that much back in the Hidden Mist arc. Sasuke has nothing to do with Naruto become Hokage, because Sasuke is a lost cause who no longer has anything to do with the village. That's like saying they'll get Itachi to return to the village, and everybody will just fogive him. It WONT happen.


Practically impossible of happening.. if itachi > oro.. then itachi > sasuke
For now. Kishi can just pull someting out of his ***.

They ARE weak, because Kishi protrays them as weak, despite being S-Ranked Criminals. Hidan is a prime example. How many times did he fall for the same trap over and over?

And it's obvious that they don't die without a good fight. So far it's taken an army just to kill them.

The point is to bring sasuke back to SAVE him from Orochimaru's body transfer. If Sasuke dies in the end saving, helping and just being naruto's firnd again, his death would be most acceptable to Naruto. Naruto wants to die as a true shinobi, not to some freak who want his body, and I'm sure he wishes the same to Sasuke.

Yamato is Tobi.

Heh.

It's obvious.

Interesting theory. After all, let's not forget Yura was a mindslave to Akatsuki for the Sand. How can we be sure the Leaf doesn't have any spies for the group?

More than that we haven't "SEEN" Tobi's abilities. It's possible, but not what I'm leaning towards. Knowing my Japanese phonetic skills.

O-Bi-To

To-Bi (Obito backwards - O)

Unless Kishimoto pulls an RPGWorld on us (to those who remember the "Galgarion is Eikre" crowd) and slaps us in the face with something new.

But for now I believe that Kishi will have some "secret history" about the Kakashi story re: Obito.


Madara is still kicking it. That makes a possible amount of four.

Source please.

As far as I know, the Nine-Tails doesn't get around much and its last memory of the outside world was when old Fourthy was still kickin'.

Not to mention it's suggested by OTHER fans that Madara is the first Uchiha.

It's been established that powerful members of the Uchiha clan can see/sense and suppress a Jinchuuriki's demon. Knowing for a while that the fox FEARS the clan, Madara could have been one of the member who kept the ******* in check. Probably in a cycle of 100 or 50 years does an Uchiha rise to take care of the Kyuubi.

You know, like Dracula against the Belmont clan (and remember how before Lament of Innocence and Iga's reign of terror, it was believed that Sonia was the first Belmont? So the Madara theory can fairly be refuted with a bit of a-hole retconning on Kishi's part as well)...only one of them got lazy conveniently before Naruto was born.


Sasori was replaced by Tobi, which means that Kazuku and Hidan will be replaced by their subs, if they have any. So, Akatsuki is slowly, but surely dying. :)

I don't think that's the case. The organization is based on the idea, not the people in it. Even if all but the leader dies, he's willing to find other Rogue-Nin and appeal to them.

If you've been paying attention, Akatsuki is an organization that wants to manufacture war but in their own good, they want to create jobs for "underrated" shinobi but just as well have S-rank Rogue-Nin as mercenaries FOR those underrated or understaffed villages. It was one of the reasons why the Sand co-operated with Orochimaru, because the Leaf "took their jerbs!"

Because in case you haven't noticed, there's two things that are bad for a the other nations. One being the Leaf village because of its size, reliability (for missions) and power. The other being peaceful times, because it makes the use of a ninja meaningless...unless D-ranked missions like garbage pick-up and other oddjobs are what throwing kunai and mixing poisons were all about.


Who are you to say that he won't join again? It's not your manga -_-. Besides, your arguments are very lame.

Umm...do you even know what an argument is? He's making a statement based on what he knows, how real does a situation look compared to how ideal a situation is...not to mention it's part of being PERCEPTIVE. Which really isn't a common trait in most people, but is HEAVILY encouraged.

If he were to ARGUE, he'd explain his points on WHY he came to those conclusions and what has been shown in the story to suggest this is possible. In fact he only makes the argument to refute you when he responded to the post.

Get a dictionary and pay attention to English class kid, it saves lives.


1. being a rouge nin doesnt mean that sasuke will never get back.. getting sasuke back is naruto's main goal atm.. and since its a shonen manga.. he's bound to complete it

I dunno. Yuu Yuu Hakusho ended in a way no one was expecting.

Naruto's good for a few more character deaths and unexpected betrayals.
For whatever reason, I don't think it's going to be a happy ending. Naruto wants to save Sasuke, but it only proves he's as diluted as Sarutobi.

And the word is "Rogue", unless there are ninja out there wearing "blush" on their cheeks.


3. It's kishi's manga.. are you kishi to say that "we dont have time"? the manga is FAR from being over.. there are a bunch of plot things that need to be resolved

If I was in constant fear of developing the story because the product line attached to it, especially a medium thousands of people watch and pressured by shareholders, toy and game companies to throw them a bone because I'm holding up the story. Not to mention my brother who went from plagurist to EXCEEDING me in my own field of expertise is psychologically getting to me, then yeah, I'd say it's freakin' crunch time.


Your logic is also flawed.. just because something happens today, doesnt mean it will happen tomorrow oO;

That's life. This is fiction, and fiction as medium of entertainment is bound to predictability and cliches.

Redemption doesn't seem to be one of the major working themes in Naruto surprisingly, and things like Gaara we can brush off aside. Personally I'd like to see an ending where Kishimoto show a contrasting effect of the type of lifestyle that Naruto led, where he becomes successful in the end, versus Sasuke, who doesn't become successful in the end. I mean, Jeezus, don't just show kid's morals but also the consequences as well.

... Thinking about all this makes me wonder if Viz is going to change their handling for their series targetted at a younger crowd. Yanno, no more edits, actually including "damn" and "b*stard" every now and then, no toning down on "sexual material," etc.

Then again, they have a few years to go before we reach this point over here.

Alright, I think some of you are a little confused.

Despite this being a Shonen manga, Naruto won't be able to bring back Sasuke. Ever since the second arc of the series, it's been stated that when you abandon a village, you abandon a village. There ain't no coming back to opened arms and praise. But surely sharpened Kunai and awaiting Anbu.

Itachi is dying, quick time. And it's a good thing too. The manga will be done in a few years, mabye two or less. That's what Kishimoto said in a Shonen Jump interview early last year.

If Sasuke makes it back to the village, expect him to have some serious penalties against him.

And yes, smoking DOES make people cool. I'm totally serious. If your willing to shave away your life, for a quick pain-number, your cool in my eyes. And I mean that.

Sasuke goes against orochimaru.
I'm sure he won't win, but he'll go the uchiha way.
RUN AWAY.

Your right. Back on topic. Yes, Sakura likes Naruto now. She see's that he's grown up and has ebcome a smarter, greater person, while keeping the inner kid inside of him. The anime emphasizes this more.

Shippers are funny. You have Sasuke/Sakura, Naruto/Sakura, and Naruto/Hinata waging wars at one another on NF, and here I predicted back in... chapter three when Sasuke and Sakura were introduced that, "Yep, if there's going to be any shounen-style romance, the hero is gonna get the girl."

Plus, I guess Kishimoto has to copy his younger brother, from what I've heard being shouted at the (forum) mountaintops.


But Sakura is a horny hoe, so she'd fall for any kid. XD

Ah, but Naruto can do his multiple clone jutsu thingy (can't remember the name; I'm not Wapanese) for a long-extended period of time. That might be a good reason to believe that the girls (and Sasuke) are fallin' for him, if you get what I mean...

He's too sick. Kabuto is away getting meds, but'll probably come back just as Sasuke is about to win, and get in a really close fight, but I'm gonna guess Kabuto'll run and save Oro's life.

- Orochimaru's tongue is so damn amusing. I want more panels like the bottom one on page four

- Kishimoto seems to have gone past the Naruto/Sakura/Sasuke thing to Naruto/Sakura/Sai, which HK highly approves of. Tight-ab and feeding Sai? You can get a hawt threesome with that, and mysterious, feeding Kakashi thrown into the mix? YUM.

- Sasuke is sick and tired that Orochimaru won't/can't teach him anything by being on top all of the time, so look's like are (un)favorite anti-hero is going to jump ship to rape Itachi and join in for the previously threesome (Foursome?).

- Not enough "I'm an adult now" Shikamura. Boo.

What's with mispelling Shikamaru's name alluvasudden?

Anyway, here's how I analyze Sasuke's "epiphany".

Sasuke knows that Orochimaru will take his body regardless, even if he has the combined force to kill Itachi, Sasuke will no longer have a mind or will of his own, knowing that everything he's being taught ethically is practically meaningless. This being Sasuke is still CURIOUS, curious to see if he can sever those bonds, curious to see if his own abilities can go even further, curious to face Naruto once more when he's good and ready.

As a test to see if he can be detached from his own emotions and measure his ability, he will stand against his own teacher: a Sannin with thousands of Jutsu at his disposal and a former higher ranking Akatsuki member to boot.

Now, a lot of people (fangirls mostly) are rooting for Sasuke to win, but I think such an effort is all for naught. I predict it'll be one of those things that prove Orochimaru isn't to be taken lightly, even when he's gravely ill and when (or more optimistically "if") Sasuke loses, he'll be broken and then that's when he'll be lost forever at least until Kishimoto has some deus ex machina in play.

Speaking of Shikamaru, I think it's funny how the status quo is maintained by having his dad be a skillful Shogi player, and one who'd give Asuma a run for his money to boot.

"Laziness."

This being Sasuke is still CURIOUS, curious to see if he can sever those bonds, curious to see if his own abilities can go even further, curious to face Naruto once more when he's good and ready.

Would Sasuke seek out to fight the good fight against Naruto before going up against Itachi, though? We know where Sasuke's immediate priorities lie, but we don't know what he'll do after that -- similar situation to the "What if...?" should he actually succeed with taking revenge on his brother.


As a test to see if he can be detached from his own emotions and measure his ability, he will stand against his own teacher: a Sannin with thousands of Jutsu at his disposal and a former higher ranking Akatsuki member to boot.

"Kick 'em while they're down!"

I do wonder if Sasuke does do this out of testing his own abilities or just to get the hell away from Orochimaru. I mean, yeah, the reputation is there, but to take down a severely weakened opponent that is not as strong as the one who he ultimately wants to take down? I'd think Sasuke'd be smarter than that.


Now, a lot of people (fangirls mostly) are rooting for Sasuke to win, but I think such an effort is all for naught.

I always thought Itachi took preference over Naruto. Currently, Sasuke's disappointed in Naruto's ability so it's Naruto who has to make the next move at this point to get some respect.

I don't think Sasuke will ever return to the Leaf or his 3-man cell if he manages to escape.

Also fighting the good fight would be WITH not against Naruto.


Oh, and MugenKeiji, you posted on that "NEW DETAILS ON EVA MOVIE: NOW ARGUE AMONGST YOURSELF" thread at ANN about a certain statement made concerning the creation of another Tenchi Muyo series pre-2000. Mind giving me the details?

I just remember when AIC had a forum one of the animation staff talked about how finishing the series would be pointless because Tenchi's "old" and considered a "dinosaur" by now. It boiled down to fans trying to convince the old team that Tenchi should be rightfully finished after a decade or so.

Ultimately the decision was to go back it an old classic with a few new techniques here and there. FUNimation later got the rights, yadda yadda yadda...

I don't know if you're familar with Mohawk52 (or whatever. He IS on the forum) but he was one of the few idiots I dealt with on AIC's English Forum who had the CRAZY idea that AIC, a mere animation company somehow had the magical resources of bringing Tenchi to Europe with the original Pioneer voices in place. Just comes to show that age is not necessarily synonymous with knowledge, eh?

Here's a thought.

Have some things inexplicably happen so that the anime writers can make close-to-canonical filler on it.

Example: Naruto happens to be at Chuunin rank before he faces Sasuke

Resolution: Pierrot makes filler arc on Naruto toughing out another Chuunin exam, while Kishimoto develops the story, so to speak.

But yeah, I agree on that.


I don't think Sasuke will ever return to the Leaf or his 3-man cell if he manages to escape.

Has he even thought that far? "Ah done killed Itachi now, wha' am ah gonna do?"

The only conclusion I can draw from that possibility is that Sasuke either dies by the end of the manga, or else Kishimoto pulls out a "He shall return, and they welcome him with open arms" BS ending for 'im.


Also fighting the good fight would be WITH not against Naruto.

I was more or less thinking in the context of how Naruto and Sasuke will inevitably fight at least once more before the series is over. Yanno, shounen rivalry, and whatnot.

For some reason that reminds me of the cases with The Big O getting a second season to give the story a solid ending and Hellsing getting a makeover with the OVA... Though, with those two, it had more to do with fan response with television ratings and the amount of DVDs sold, which doesn't seem to be what occurred here with Tenchi Muyo.


I don't know if you're familar with Mohawk52 (or whatever. He IS on the forum) but he was one of the few idiots I dealt with on AIC's English Forum who had the CRAZY idea that AIC, a mere animation company somehow had the magical resources of bringing Tenchi to Europe with the original Pioneer voices in place.

Aye, I'm familiar. He's also one who thinks that the original series was b*stardized on its showing with Toonami with its "horrendously editted English dub." Really, even though the place seems to give off this pride of good, strict, smart discussions flying about, some of the most moronic things have been said on ANN with its members. Whether it's arguing about whether lolicon is really that bad and technically has any sexual material, whether incest is right, whether the typical person don't want to see much real world people and problems in their entertainment (I only got in an argument with only one person on that, selenta, though considering that he was one of those arguing against the anti-lolicon side, his concept of logic is downright horrid from the few examples that I've seen), or even whether otakukin (check out the recent Answerman column for those not familiar) have any validity in what they say (Steroid, moral relatavist, "Anime is better than real life!")... ugh, I want to http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/7681/ughbm8.gif whenever I see that moronic crap.

... But that's enough complaining for me today about the cesspool of idiocy that is the Internet.

Odama Rasengan was just a filler move to finish off the Itachi and Kakashi clone battle. All it is is two clones holding the Rasengan.

Here's something that I was discussing on pojo. It has to do with Sasuke's recent actions towards a bed-ridden Orochimaru:

The way I see it, Sasuke consider's blood over water, or family over friends. That'd explain why he tried to kill Naruto, why he ran away from the village with Orochimaru, and so much else.

Think about it. He left the village so Orochimaru would make him stronger and that he'd finally have the strength to fight Itachi. Sasuke could've stayed with Leaf, but it wasn't like he would learn from Kakashi what he'd learn from Orochimaru. He's dedicated his life to avenging his fallen relatives by killing his brother, so he'd opt for the best route to it.

It actually makes a lot of sense. Anyone who is serious about revenge would do this.

So, I think that Sasuke is willing to fight and try to defeat Orochimaru now, not to finally get him out of the picture, but to see how strong he has become. He made sure that his teacher was at a slight handicap, and Sasuke activated one of his highest abilities. This might set Orochimaru at a slight disadvantage, but if he can over come him easily, Sasuke might be able to go toe-to-toe against Itachi.

Another thing to remember is is that we don't know why Itachi decided to join Akatsuki, and why he wants Sasuke to wreck revenge against him. There's still so much mystery about the Uchiha clan left unsolved, that Itachi could've joined Akatsuki and killed his clan for the very sake of protecting the world (hell, it's possible).

Naruto is starting to end up a lot like Tenjho Tenge. If this is the start of a new arc, a flashback involving Itachi's past and why he betrayed his kin, and the mysteries behind Madara could help fix that problem. Cause all this Sharingan crap has been riding me bum for far too long now.

Itachi has the Mangekyo Sharingan. I highly doubt he didn't kill the villiage. But I think there was a reason behind it. You don't just massacre your entire family and many friends without a reason to do it.

You know, despite how stupid and twisted the Mangeyko SHaringan is, you'd need to kill your best(closest) friend for it to activate. And Sasuke's closest friends is Naruto.

Besides, he already stated he doesn't want to stoop to his brother's level to become stronger. I doubt he'll get the Mangyeko Sharingan.

I can't see either Orochimaru or Sasuke dying just yet.
I suppose Orochimaru could take over Sasuke's body, but not be able to destroy his soul or something.

Overall, though, I didn't actually like the new chapter.
Hearing Sasuke say something like, 'a mere genius is nothing to the Uchiha genius' or something is just kind of annoying.

And with Sasuke asking if Orochimaru's immortality jutsu is just because of his desire for knowledge/power, and Orochimaru flashbacks to Sarutobi saying that that the white skin of a snake he found on his parent's graves, symbolizes that his(Orochi's) parents could at sometime be reborn in the future...

...I don't even know what to think, if:
Reborn:Parents = Time:Future/Unknown > Keep Living:Immortality Jutsu = Future/Unknown: Immortal Orochimaru > See Parents Again.

Little did I/we know that years down the road, there'd be a pipe-smokin', yakuza-talkin' frog boss fighting alongside Naruto on special occasions.

Yeah, they act like wings, but look like very deformed hands. Kinda hate it.....

Let's just let this arc play out and see what the end result is. All we're doing now is speculating and dumpoing guesses untop of guesses. We have to take into consideration that Orochimaru is stuck in a tght spot, but he's still a Sannin with plenty of moves that have yet to be revealed. Not to mention Kabuto is near-by. We can't just assume that Sasuke will kill Orochimaru and move onto Itachi.

*sigh*As I've already said, it's too early to assume what he's able to summon, if he can summon anything. Yeah, it'd make sense him summoning a snake. Just like it'd make sense him summoning a Duck, or an Octopus, or even the First, Second, Third, or Fourth Hokage, which he could've learned while with Orochimaru all this time.

Notice my keywords: Could've, it'd, can.

It's still too early to see what Sasuke can and can't do outside of what we've seen him do already. However, there is one jutsu for sure that Orochimaru didn't want him to sue when he fought Naruto post-time jump. Up to now, we don't know what it is.

It's a typical cliché for shounen protagonists to be "unable" to use a move in danger of destroying their bodies, but usually that's just a plot device to make it seem more critical than it actually is.

I wouldn't mind Naruto actually not being able to use chakra for the rest of his life. It would fit in closer to that one fanfic that I wrote ages ago... then I could sue Kishimoto. >: )


And we all know Naruto isn't going to listen. He's Naruto. He's going to destroy his arm, become a one-armed shinobi and kill everyone in a cool manner.

Actually, one-armed Naruto would be damn cool.

I want one-armed Naruto.

I gotta say the same thing. Naruto has too mnay forbidden jutsu's or moves that rely on his clones and/or the Fox Demon. Why can't the little dude learn any D or C rank wind moves?


He's trying to not make Naruto broken like Shikimaru and Sasuke...

I wouldn't say that Shi and Sa are broken. One's an incredably hawt smoker who controls shadows, the others a Fire-breathing crow thing. Their tier 1.5 at best.

But ya, I'd like to see a one-handed Naruto too. I don't think there are any one-handed ninjas in Naruto at all.


Naruto could become the Kukaku/Baiken of Naruto. Except not nearly as cool.

Hmm. A claw-chain thingie, with a missing eye, a sword and a hot ***. I can dig it.

Who else here thinks Orochimaru isn't truly defeated? Something tells me he's hidden himself away in Sasuke (a la YGO).

I love Babelfish-esque translations. They're so ridiculously screwy and nonsensical that they're sometimes more entertaining than the chapter itself.

I can't imagine Sasuke actually seeking help to actually fight Itachi. I mean, getting power, finding out where he is, yadda, yadda, yadda... that I can see. But anything more than that goes against just about everything that his character has, yanno, built up to.

Amazing spoilers for 347!

Orochimaru is officially dead, Sasuke is recreating the Sound Four with Suigetsu, Jungo, and Karin, and he retrieved the Zabuza Sword from the Great Naruto Bridge *remeber land of waves?*. Apparently, Suigetsu is as strong as Sasuke, but with Zabuza's sword he can't lose to him. If you ask me, it seems as if Team Sasuke will be the end bosses for the finale of the manga. This team is basically mirroring The new Team Seven.

Here's some good news. As of Chapter 347, the Seven Swordsmen, a filler group of villians that (appeared) in the anime, was mentioned in the manga. This is actually good news, seeing how several other super special awesome happenings happened in the anime that could show up in the manga. Like Hinata's Uber beam and whatnot. This is a good sign. :D

Sweet, That would be pretty awsome as Sasuke is fighting Itachi Suigetsu is fighting Kisame with Zabuza's sword, but you see this might be kind of a grudge match for each of them since something could have happened between Kisame and Zabuza........Maybe he was the one who stole his eye brows ^^

When I first read the spoiler for this chapter (before the actual RAW was released to download by the public) I thought almost for sure that it was false.
Seriously, there were too many weird things but... oddly enough, those spoilers were indeed true. "The Shocking Truth" indeed... (the name of the chapter... the shocking truth that Kishimoto can actually make Naruto entertaining again!)

My, my, Kishimoto, maybe you can actually get your groove back in more ways than one (humor, story, and plot). :O

Oh yeah, and this chapter has yaoi, yuri, and a naked man Mello-clone, and booty.

Thumbs up for this chapter. Looks like the time skip's getting its comeuppance.

So Team Sasuke and Akatsuki members to worry about. Suigetsu peeing on Zabuza's grave (well taking his sword anyway). Sakura revealed to be no better than a fangirl (take THAT Sakura). Konohamaru's got some skills (why Sai is indifferent to the act, I'll never know).

I'd go as far as saying Oda gave Kishi some pep talk about pacing...but that's a stretch. A long one at that.




Here's some good news. As of Chapter 347, the Seven Swordsmen, a filler group of villians that (appeared) in the anime, was mentioned in the manga.

Actually they were mentioned as early as Kisame's first appearance. Somehow the staff at Pierrot wanted to "fill in the blanks" or got Kishi to loosen his lips.

Suigetsu is indeed awesome, despite having been naked and having overused shark teeth (is this a fashion statement in the Hidden Mist?). But why did he take the hilt off of Zabuza's sword (which CANNOT BE BEAT!)?

Also, Karin looks hot. Not as hot as Sui and his waterbottles of doom, though. He looks like he's about to take on Lance Armstrong.

I am guessing Suigetsu and Sai aren't really related. Sui and Sai met in some weird fashion while Sui was probably scouting Konoha for an attack of the Mist or something. They meet.

They bond.

They become brothers of the sort Naruto/Sasuke did.

Sui leaves, going back to Zabuza.

Word goes back to Sai from probably ROOT (Who didn't like his interaction with a junior of Zabuza, or probably someone from the Mist) that Sui died by illness. When he didn't and just went MIA on a misson.

Oro captured him/Sui tried to defeat him and got caught.

Sui is trapped.

And Sakura will never lose her clothes.

Am I the only one who's excited about Naruto again?
