I don't think he meant that they should fight each other; rather, that they should fight against the White Zetsu army and show off new techniques. Kiba has been ignored a lot lately :s

Duh. So stupid, didn't understand that at the time lol

Who knows, maybe he did. I think everyone probably learned a few new things, and this war is about to show it.

Im saying what else could he really do with the wolf? Shoot fire balls out of it? Thats not likely and he did pretty much everything he could in the sakon fight. He could only do physical moves except for the twirling moves but that can be improved really.

There's only one Black Zetsu, so it shouldn't be too difficult. Mei can probably burn it to death with acid.

I don't think it would be that easy, especially once you remember that female characters rarely ever win battles in this series for some reason. Mei could try and fight Black Zetsu, but I think he'd be able to kidnap the feudal lord before Mei could even touch him. I'm almost expecting her and the Tsuchikage to die in this war as a matter of fact. The Tsuchikage is really old and it looks like he's going to risk his life to defeat Muu and Mei just seems like the type to die young.

Shneak
7th February 2011, 10:24 PM
I know, I was just kidding. It would be hard to attack, but it can't really fight back.

I have a feeling that all the kages, except Gaara, are going to die.

Females win just as much as the males actually. Temari technically beat Shikamaru, Sakura and Chiyo beat Sasori, Tsunade beat Naruto, and so on. It's just that there are more males so they have a majority of the fights.

Shikamru gave up, Double teaming doesnt count, and theres a 50 year difference. Just saying xD.

Temari beat Tayuya. Temari beat TenTen and Im sure Konan beats a lot of people. She has to represent the female society ^^.

Where is Temari right now? I didnt see her in any of th war squads.

Shikamaru even said he was out of Chakra so he couldn't have won either way. I don't see how teaming up doesn't count. That's how the Akatsuki works. She's still a female and won and there is only about a 40 year difference so he has no excuse :P I don't think a female fighting a female would count because a female would win either way. I think 4th Kira was referring to when females and males fight.

She was with Gaara's squad I'm sure.

Lorde
8th February 2011, 3:00 AM
Nevermind. I forgot that Kishi can bend the story to his will. Though personally, I think Konan should have gotten some "on-screen" victories. We've seen her jutsu and she seemed pretty tough, but I still wish she would've defeated someone (I didn't see her in the anime, so maybe she did beat someone there?). I wonder if Kishi will revive her. He could, along with Kisame if he wanted too, but that would just add to the problems that the Allied Shinobi Forces have to face.

Anyway, I'm gonna predict that this week's chapter has something to do with either Black Zetsu finding Mei and the Frost Country's feudal lord, Darui's battle with those Cloud ninja, or Kankuro's battle with Chiyo/Hanzo/Kimimaro. I would hope that we get to see Suigetsu again, but his role isn't really important right now :x

All you have to do is look at how Kishi treats the supposed heroine to see how strong women are in the series. They can be strong, But only when there's no guy to do it for them.

I'm hoping Kishi stops jumping around with the story and focuses on one of the fights already going on. I want to see Darui fight the metal brothers and see how Kakashi is doing.

I'm hoping Kishi stops jumping around with the story and focuses on one of the fights already going on.

The only issue with that is that it might become similar to the pacing of the Fake Karakura Town arc in Bleach - something Kishi might have picked up on and hoped to avoid. A war should feel like a war, not just battle after battle after battle after battle.

Lorde

I don't. I dislike watching Naruto train so I think it's best if the story focused on some of the battles in this war for a while. I don't think Naruto has made much progress yet anyway. I am wondering if Madara will be going after Bee, though. He hasn't been seen lately and he's really the only one left who could capture a Jinchuriki alive, besides Sasuke I guess.

She was with Gaara's squad I'm sure.

You do know that everything but the Shikamaru part was sarcasm, right? The only girl male part battles are with Shikamaru.

Didnt that Black girl fight Naruto for like a second. She reminds me of Tsunade, puching Naruto for some reason.

I would think shed be in the front at least, but then again Kankurou is in a whole other squad. I think shes been forgotten along with TenTen.

I was talking about Temari and TenTen. The girls with the least screen time in naruto. Masashi gave TentTen her own filler and it still had naruto and neji in it so thats not really hers considering naruto loves attention.

Tenten was in the last chapter though.

No one is really being forgotten, in fact Kishi has been bring more and more people into the manga and still shows a little of the older ones.


Karui (?) is in Neji/Hinata's squad. She hasn't been seen since the beginning of the war.

She was seen with the rest of Kitsuchi's division attacking the White Zetsu Clone Army, which was after the start of the war. She'll be seen again, not many chapters have pasted since then.

Samui and Atsui are sent to Darui as reinforcements
Kinkaku can use a technique with his gourd to steal his opponents' souls
While recording speech, the person recording the speech is sucked up

Atsui is male and has a slight resemblance to C
Gaara and the Tsuchikage aren't setting out
This time it's Kinkaku and Ginkaku vs. Darui, Samui, and Atsui

minor mistake here. it should be: "the person whose words are recorded is sucked in (into his gourd)".
also, both kinkaku and ginkaku use that technique (taking the souls of their opponents by recording their words/speech), not only the former.

"They use five ninja tools said to be the treasured tools of the Rikudō Sennin. They even managed to bring the Nidaime Hokage to the verge of death with them, but... the Kyūbi's chakra...? I hadn't heard they held that..."
This must be about the tools Kinkaku and Ginkaku use
Journey to the West also had the brothers wield five treasured weapons
A sword, a fan, a rope, a pot, and a gourd We finally seem to be learning the deal behind Kingaku and Ginkaku. Plus Samui returns.

Lorde
9th February 2011, 5:56 PM
So Ginkaku and Kinkaku have some sort of technique that records and absorbs speech? Huh, didn't Zetsu have a similar technique? Only in his case, he could only record actions or something. Anyway, it looks like the chapter focuses on Cloud ninja once more. I actually like it when the manga focuses on the struggles of the Leaf ninja, but this is fine I guess.

The chapter is out and it was weird. Samui's brother is like the exact opposite of her and he creeps me out lol. Kinkaku and Ginkaku appear to have been criminals which might explain why they attacked their own people without holding back. I didn't understand their abilities much, but I'm glad that Kishi went with something that hasn't been done too often in the past. I hate that they have some of the Kyuubi's chakra though.

I don't like the two brothers. The 3 items make a good strategy for them, stealing souls, but I don't understand why they have the fan.

Looks like Atsui and Samui are (dead).

I thought the chapter was enjoyable. You people wanted to see the Allied Shinobi Forces getting their *** kicked and that's what he gave you.

Lorde
10th February 2011, 11:25 PM
Kishi does a decent job of juggling a huge cast of characters, so I have no real issue with all these new characters showing up. Most of these new guys are just going to end up dying anyway, so it's not like they matter too much (at least characters actually die in this manga, even if they are minor characters).

Also, I was thinking: couldn't those special tools that Kinkaku and Ginkaku use, be used to seal the Edo Tensei ninja's souls? I can totally see those tools being used against Kinkaku and Ginkaku at some point and then maybe against the other revived ninja like Kakuzu, Dan, and Asuma. That's just my theory, though. I hope Kishi actually created those items with that in mind.

Crimsonlink
10th February 2011, 11:26 PM
I feel like the Kyuubi swallowing the 2 brothers was nothing more than an *** pull in the last second by Kishi. Ok Kyuubi swallows you and you survive for 2 weeks somehow and you come out with some of it's chakra? Also why was Kyuubi out back then? Was it before it was sealed into Mito because the brothers would have to be pretty old.

I'm interested in the 5th treasure of the Sage since the other 4 have been introduced and I'm guessing the treasures were formed by Juubi's chakra. Madara's little battle Fan may be the 5th treasure but who knows.

The best part about this chapter was seeing the 2nd hokage and the information of how he was left on the verge of death because he fought the silver&gold brothers. I just hope Darui manages to survive and I'm a bit curious as to who killed the brothers.

As for Atsui... useless character and just a more reckless version of Naruto IMO.

I hope there are a few more Storm Releases and that Edo Tensai gets owned by the treasures or something because now the undead army is just getting annoying and the fights are so one-sided.

Shadow Lucario
10th February 2011, 11:37 PM
Maybe at that point someone had extracted the fox and released it or the fox took over Mito during child birth. And the brothers are pretty old since they fought Nidaime Hokage.

TsukiMirage
11th February 2011, 12:00 AM
This chapter was weird. It was nice to see finally see some strong ninjas from another village in action, But them relying on those weapons sort of put a damper on things. At least those powerful weapons help to push home how Kumo tends to collect powerful tools. I love that Samui and Darui showed what they could do, But Atsui was sort of annoying. I could have done without him acting so crazy. It was nice to get reference to Tobirama again and a special appearance by the Second Raikage who looks pretty cool. The idea that the brothers got eaten by the Kyuubi is quite funny in a stupid way. Can't wait to learn the rules to this game the brothers are playing.

You have to remember that a weapon is only as good as its user. They're not relying on weapons since the weapons cannot act on their own.

The Cloud ninja used to be really amazing, but now I'm getting bored of them. They keep using "Cloud Style" which seems to be some sort of sword technique. I bet more Cloud ninja use this sort of technique. I like that Leaf ninja use all sorts of techniques when they fight, since it shows variety. Anyway, rant aside, I think that Kinkaku and Ginkaku will lose in the next chapter. These war chapters are going by pretty quickly, so it's possible.

Not really. I had seen it before so I didn't think that the technique was all-that exciting in this chapter. I wanted Darui to use other Storm Release techniques. We'll probably have to wait until next week to see his other tricks though :x

11th February 2011, 11:07 PM
I've liked almost all the war chapters (especially the Kakashi squad ones and the Akatsuki battle), but this one just seemed really stupid to me. The weapon abilities were ridiculous and the "myth" of the Nine Tails chakra was dumb too. Hopefully it'll move in the right direction.

11th February 2011, 11:47 PM
Zetsu was awesome this chapter. Jumping out of the water and trying to eat some flesh and stuff.

I'm think Kitsuchi and some people from his division will come back Darui up. They are suppose to mobilize there at some point I think, and last chapter they received the word to start mobilizing.

Ginkaku's and Kinkaku's personalities aren't that great to me, although the weapons I find pretty interesting.

Grovyl
11th February 2011, 11:49 PM
I don't really know what to say about this one. I guess I liked it more than not. I really liked the idea of the most words you've said in your life. But how they got the Kyuubi's chakra is ridiculous. How are you gonna go in the Kyuubi's stomach and somehow obtain his chakra?! Anyways, I also liked how Darui knew which word he used most...
I wouldn't know which my word would be... Most likely the... haha

I've no idea, but you've just reminded me of something. I remembered that Kushina used some weird word when we saw her. It was a speech quirk like Naruto has in the Japanese anime/manga. Anyway, does anyone know what they changed it to in the Viz edition of the manga? I'm assuming that it was changed, since Naruto doesn't use that "dattebayo" word in the English manga, and having his mother use a similar word wouldn't make much sense.

It would be pretty interesting, but I don't see it happening. Come to think of it, when was the last time Naruto really fought anyone? Like a full battle? Wasn't that all the way back in the Pain arc? I hope his training gets done soon so that he can finally get the attention he deserves. Anyway, you know what I would love? Seeing Naruto and the Kyuubi working together like Bee and the Hachibi. I know it will probably never happen, but I can dream ;_;

He's training to master a new jutsu called the Bijuu Ball. He was supposed to team up with the Kyuubi to create it, but since the Kyuubi doesn't cooperate with humans, Naruto is learning to create his own version using the same methods he used to master the Rasengan. Apparently, controlling the Kyuubi is difficult :x

I think Kishi will change his mind later on and have Naruto work with Kyuubi and decimate Madara's army when the Alliance start's struggling badly. It'll probably be when Naruto finally figures out there is a war going on.

12th February 2011, 6:33 PM
I don't even think that the Zetsu army is the main issue here. Yeah, there are tons of them to deal with and they probably have some hidden powers, but the main enemies in this war are those revived ninja. We've seen that there are a few ways of capturing them and sealing them, but it doesn't seem possible to stop them all without first capturing Kabuto. I'm sure it'll happen eventually, but I think Kishi should focus on the revived ninja more than on the Zetsu for now. The only exception would be Black Zetsu, since he seems important enough.

Sasuke is probably sitting in bed with White Zetsu.

Seriously though, I bet Madara is going to sneak into Kumogakure and kidnap Bee. Then he'll order White Zetsu to send Sasuke as back-up and Sasuke will fight Naruto and all that good stuff. I don't see Madara actually fighting in this war right off the bat. Rather, I think he'll go ahead and capture Bee himself since there isn't anyone else left, really.

He's most likely alive. I would hate for him to have died off-screen, anyway. Yamato really is the butt of everyone's jokes, so I hope that he manages to escape Madara's hideout and rejoin the Allied Shinobi Forces, somehow. He's never been in a large fight, and I'd love to see his Wood Release techniques in action (and not just used to build houses).

TsukiMirage

We were told that he needed to be alive to help power up the Zetsus, So unless Madara is doing some spring cleaning, Yamato should still be alive.

Yamato's too important for them at the moment to be killed off, but I don't think he'll survive the war, in a way I bet his death will be the key to finishing off the Zetsus.

The key to finishing the Zetsu army, because they contain some of his DNA or whatever? I suppose that's possible. Kishi does kill off a lot of characters in his manga. While I was upset with some of the deaths, I don't think I'd be too mad if Yamato died for a good cause. Anyway, I was sure that since he was from ANBU, he'd be able to get out of that mess he was in. If not by strength, then by commiting suicide to keep the secrets of his village sort of like how Kisame killed himself to keep Akatsuki's secrets.

TsukiMirage
14th February 2011, 9:53 PM
It's too late for that. Madara already took all the info that Yamato held. So Yamato's only course of action is to go out in a blaze of glory against Sasuke/Zetsu.

You have a point there. After all, Yamato was Orochimaru's "guinea pig". So, he probably contains something valuable (1st Hokage's DNA for example). I get a feeling Kabuto will use him somehow, as will Madara.

No info on Hanta (TN: I'm sorry, is there a character called Hanta? I'm forgetful. I think she might be talking about HunterxHunter but I'm not sure). I have only browsed through (the magazine).

Darui realizes that he can't stay silent the whole time either.
So he talks about various things.
He remembers his convo with the Raikage. In that convo, the word "similarity" (ruiji) comes up.
Joining them together he gets the word "Da-rui" (TN: "rui" means type). Right before he gets sucked into the gourd he keeps saying "Sorry, sorry"
Instead of saying "darui" (TN: dull) repeatedly, he says "sorry" instead.
Darui doesn't get sucked into the gourd, he slashes at Ginkaku who then slams into Koukinjou. Darui steals the seven star sword and the gourd.
Ginkaku gets sucked into the gourd.
Kinkaku goes into a rage, and the chapter ends with him turning into Kyuubi-mode. FILLER! I'm having flashbacks of Sora. Still, Kyuubi mode is awesome, So I'll go with it.

Now it looks as if we'll have another Jinchuriki-esque battle on our hands. Why Kishi? Why give these two guys the power of the Kyuubi when Naruto will be using this same power very soon? I'm disappointed.

Six tails eh? Geez, how much chakra did these guys absorb? And a black Pikachu? Is Kishi really resorting to copying designs from other series? Whatever. I just hope that he ends this fight quickly before it turns into a total mess (well, more than it already is).

Not really. Despite how strong or weak she may be, it is not her role in the story to kill/defeat Sasuke, and so she never stood a chance, in the same way that any character - other than Naruto himself - will ever stand a chance.

The chapter is finally out, and it was pretty good. At least it was better than last week's chapter. Seeing Darui trick the two brothers by having his most used word switch at the last minute was awesome. Though Kinkaku using the Kyuubi's chakra to transform is bad news for Darui's team. I doubt anyone there could defeat a Kyuubi-powered ninja. Anyway, nice to see Kakuzu get a speaking role, even if it was short.

Very exciting chapter. Darui shows his stuff and why he's the Raikage's right hand man. It's nice that he acknowledge that he was saved by luck. Looking back, He did say sorry more times then he said dull. It was also nice to see he's able to shoot out a whole lot of beams from his Laser Circus technique. Good to see that Kishi didn't forget to reference that the weapons do indeed require a large amount of chakra. Seeing Kinkaku going six tails was alright, But at least he lack the bones that a real Jinchuuriki would have had. It was also pretty awesome to see what Kakuzu was doing and have him make a remark about Kinkaku. Sounds as if he fought Kinkaku and Ginkaku before and may have even been the one to kill them. It also helps prove that Kinkaku and Ginkaku are from Hashirama's generation.

19th February 2011, 6:28 PM
The word twist near the end of the chapter was sort of lame compared to some of the other twists that Kishi has come up with. I am glad that Kishi gave Darui some more back story, though. I didn't know whether he was really that close to the current Raikage or not, but he seems to be one of his favorites. Anyway, I bet the Raikage will show up and defeat Kinkaku since he was in a hurry to get there and since I doubt Darui can win on his own. I don't seen any main characters dying yet, however.

It was handled pretty well. Sure it isn't an exact translation, but when a weapon like this comes into play, the scanlators will have to do whatever necessary for the plot to flow. I imagine that the official release will be close to, possibly even the same as, the scanlation.

Sure, it won't work nearly as good as it did in the Japanese version, but at least it's something.

Now that you mention it, I recall Pain saying something about Zetsu's reason for joining Akatsuki being related to "land". I think it was in the anime or something. I remembered that Black Zetsu mentioned being "the land itself" as well. I'm wondering what that's all about. If he does have all these powers under his command, then he should have been able to take over several nations on his own. I wonder if he did own some nation in the past, and is actually trying to get it back with Madara's help.

WUT!!! No way, the Jinchuuriki host cannot have their beasts because they were extracted. The only exception was the 3 tailed beast who was loose in the wild so Yagura does not have his beast for sure. I mean sure Madara can give the beasts back to the hosts but the hosts do not come back with the beasts from the dead. Maybe some of their respective Bijuu's chakra in their system but not the whole beast.

Also if Nagato came back with his eyes intact then can't he just revive himself or something and break out of Kabuto's control?

While the Jinchuuriki won't have their actual Bijuu, Kinkaku pretty much shows us that they'll be able to transform and likely have any abilities that they originally had from their Bijuu. So as far as things go, We should still see some awesome Bijuu transformations.

Edo Tensei completely remakes a Edo's body. They don't need their original parts as everything is rebuilt from the ash and possibly materials of the sacrifice. Anyhow, Nagato would need in original body to attempt an revival and Madara has that. Not to mention even if he was revived, He would end up missing an eye.

Naruto 529

Naruto is training with bee. Naruto realizes the abnormality outside.

Word spreads in the HQ that Kinkaku has turned Bijuu. To suppress him, they need the last treasure. That thing (can't read the pot's name... something with "Amber (Kohaku)") is under Raikage's possession. The sacred treasure is sent to the battlefield using telepathy by Raikage's secretary.

Ino, Shikamaru, Chouji joins the battle. Chouji uses Nikudan-sensha on Kinkaku. Shikamaru uses Kagemane on him, but gets pulled because Kinkaku was too strong. Ino uses Shintenshin. Darui calls Kinkaku's name, to which Ino inside Kinkaku responds "YES!". Ino returns to her body. Kinkaku gets pulled into the pot.

Raikage's secretary's name is Mabui (meaning "bright" or "dazzling"... another pun). His jutsu is physical transportation of things at the speed of light. So the Hachibi's sealing pot was the last treasure. Plus we get the secretary's name.

Shikaku explained how things were suppose to go down a few chapters ago.

I think part of the plan was have part of Gaara's division to provide back up for Darui's division. Part of Mifune's division(Which Ino is in), also were suppose to go. And part of Kitsuchi's division as well were suppose to go as back up.

The way you explained it made sense, but I laughed at that last part :p

Anyway, I'm hoping that Kishi moves away from the Kyuubi for the time being. I used to love the beast a long time ago but ever since we started get new information on it, things haven't been the same. The Kyuubi just seems weaker as the story moves on. I mean, there were people inside of its stomach, and they survived. That's just as odd as it gets.

It's not that the Kyuubi is getting weaker, it's just that we're hearing about more legendary ninja who are actually capable of going toe-to-toe with it - in a sense.

Not to mention the Kyuubi sealed inside Naruto is half of what it's capable of, so that's another factor to consider. Half of the Kyuubi is forever sealed away.

Honestly, Naruto needs to do something. I never thought I'd see the day when I'd actually want Kishi to focus on him, but he can't sit training and be stupid forever. We all know he's stupid but I think Kishi is going a little overboard here.

I don't know if I can take Asuma-sensei's death all over again :(
I know what you mean! Asuma was my second favorite character, Shikamaru being my first, and his first death was enough for me. Now Shikamaru is going to have to experience it a second time, although I'll be right along side him.:]
I didn't like this new chapter too much. It went by too quick and I didn't like the amber pot being just like the gourd, and especially since it has to do with words as well, although it is changed up a bit. I really do like Shikamaru and Chouji making an appearance. It was also nice to see Ino too:]

About 10 chapter ago we found out that Naruto can sense Negative Emotions in his super sayain form, now I'm sure War can bring up a ton of that so Naruto can sense it. Also Yamato is not there anymore so that is plenty warning. So is Naruto stupid? YES! very much so IMO. Freaking land turtle flips over and he dismissed it.

I like how Naruto switches between being totally stupid, to being somewhat clever. I thought his use of Nagato's chakra rod during the fight with Pain was quite clever. Anyway, I hope he uses his brain again to try and figure out what's going on outside. I'm tried of seeing minor fights and I want to move on to the major stuff. This whole war started out being kind of interesting, but now things have gotten boring.

Considering Naruto was told the whole situation with Madara and Sasuke, Yet he basically plans on returning to Konoha to wait for Sasuke instead of attempting to eliminate the threat that is Madara for what he has done and has yet to clue in that something is going on... yes, He's stupid. Naruto may be quite clever in battle, But outside fighting he's very lacking.

Sasuke wouldn't care about the war. He just wants his revenge against Konoha so he'd take the easiest route there. And I wasn't expecting Shikamaru to fight Asuma. I was hoping that Kishi would make him fight someone else so that things wouldn't seem repetitive :x

I have a feeling that Shikamaru would win that battle almost too easily. I've always seen Shikamaru's abilities as being too powerful, and I'm sure that Kishi will continue to show off Shikamaru's abilities throughout this war. I wonder if Ino and Choji will get involved, though. That would be interesting. Those two almost never get any fights, so seeing theme actually do something would be nice, IMO.

And yes, I'd love to see Sage Mode Naruto use more Rasengans.

Crimsonlink
28th February 2011, 9:23 PM
I think that Sage mode was really a last minute gimmick that Kishi thought of to get Naruto on Pain/Sasuke's level. Heck the only things Naruto learned in the mountains was Taijutsu, Sage mode and how to throw his RasenShuriken hence now Naruto is having another training session.... on 1 move....

Anyways his new super sayain mode will replace Sage mode most likely unless Kishi combines both modes together or something.

Also if Naruto is so good at turning people good then why does he not attempt it with Kyuubi? Bee did it with 8 tails and even though Kyuubi is more evil than the 8 tails Naruto should still be able to convince Kyuubi to work with him if only to wipe out the Uchiha clan.

I wish Naruto and the Kyuubi would team up for the fight against Sasuke, but the Kyuubi just can't be tamed. He's too stubborn and he won't listen to humans. Not that I blame him, however. I mean, two guys ate the flesh from his stomach, he was manipulated by Madara, he was sealed inside two woman, he was manipulated by Madara again, and then he was sealed inside a baby. If I was the Kyuubi, I'd be pretty upset as well.

The Kyuubi tried to kill Naruto's parents; I don't think Naruto could easily forgive that. Also, the Kyuubi is just a troll. He'll just keep resisting Naruto and Naruto will have to find a way to fight without the Kyuubi's help (which is what he's learning right now). Kishi could easily have Naruto tame the Kyuubi since he's the author, but it would be a total waste since he's made the Kyuubi out to be a stubborn jerk this whole time.

I don't see how you can call Ino-Shika-Cho vs. Asuma a small battle.. Neither is Chiyo vs. Kankuro (most likely to happen), and then we have Mifune vs. Hanzou, Gaara and Onoki vs. Gaara's dad and Onoki's teacher, the Third Raikage and the Second Mizukage doing something, and of course: Kakashi vs. Seven Ninja Swordmen...

But yeah, in the grand scheme of things, battles like Kakuzu vs. Izumo and Kotetsu would seem like small battles.. Lets just hope the Jinchuriki, Kages and the better Akatsuki (Nagato, Itachi) show their faces in battle soon.

And of course, then we have Madara to consider.. But I agree that these battles feel as if we're just wasting time in order to get to the main course, but that doesn't imply that they're just small battles.. I mean Kankuro is facing the best puppeteer in history.. and along with that he has to watch out for Kimimaro as well, Orochimaru's protegé pre-Sasuke, and Hanzou's poison..

But then again, Mifune is taking care of Hanzou, and Lee/Gai will probably begin fighting against Kimimaro at some point.

I get that poison gas would be rather effective in stopping an enemy's movements, but I would have expected Kankuro to have an antidote since his puppets use poison gas as well (well, one of them does, at least).

Pretty interesting chapter. I like Kakuzu talking it up with Shikamaru and co and later Izuma and Kotetsu. It was also nice to see that Kakuzu had spent his time collecting the hearts he needed. Plus we finally learn Dan's last name. It's pretty amusing to see Dan fighting for control and even telling Chouza how to defeat him. But I actually want to see this "Ghost Transformation" technique Dan has. Nice to see the new Ino-Shika-Chou development to fight against their former teacher.

Kimimaro was precious and Chiyo was being pretty funny. But the most intriguing thing about this chapter was Hanzou and him summoning his salamander. Seems clear why he wears a mask now. While I don't think Mifune should really be able to match up, I hope we get a pretty good battle between the two. Anyhow, The best part of this whole chapter was Tenten getting the Palm Fan. Now she can really show her stuff.

how can he have an antidote if he doesnt know what poison was used on him?

How did Sai's brother know that his brother was named "Sai", when the name was given to him just for the sake of the Sasuke mission at the start of Part 2? Things in this manga don't always make sense, so I wouldn't have been surprised if one of Kankuro's antidotes had worked for that salamander's poison gas. I just think that Kankuro and his squad went down too easily.

Good chapter, I was a bit disappointed that Dan's last name isn't Namikaze but w/e. I'm also interested in the Ghost Transformation tech that Dan has but I'm not sure we will see it. I hope Asuma has more tricks than what he used against the Zombie bros back then but over all just have to wait for next week before getting to the good stuff.

Kankuro's squad already had their fight so I guess Kishi wants to push them off so others can get their fight.

Does Kankuro even use antidotes? He didn't attempt to use any when he was poisoned by Sasori and he would have stood a better change of having an antidote to that then the salamander's poison.

I would assume after he almost died against Sasori's poison he'd be using antidotes now, we'll see.

Maybe Kankuro didn't see the need since Sasori ended up dying soon afterwards. Anyway, I'm growing interested in seeing exactly what Dan can do.

3rd March 2011, 7:41 PM
Dan's ability was something related to "ghosts" if I read the chapter correctly. I'm going to seriously rage if his ability is just a carbon-copy of Madara's ability to phase through solid objects lol.

Anyway, I wonder if the Kyuubi would want to get captured and sealed by Akatsuki. It hates being inside Naruto, so maybe it would think being sealed would be a better fate. He could probably attempt to escape from that sealing statue during the sealing ritual or something.

It hates being inside Naruto

It hates being sealed inside a person, period. And from what we've seen, the Kyuubi doesn't particularly dislike Naruto any more - he would just rather be out destroying countries and mass murdering.

Nice seeing Hidan being mentioned after all this time.

I shudder at how Kakuzu wil be taken down with him being immortal, having those 5 hearts and whatnot. And it also appears Darui keeps the Seven-Star Sword, hm. The other treasure, the Banana Fan might play its part later, I reckon.

Shneak
3rd March 2011, 10:26 PM
A lot of speculation that Tenten found the Banana Fan going around. So Kishi may be setting something up for her. But honestly I rather she just stay useless like always, never cared for her at all. Oh well, development is good even for characters you hate...I guess.

That would be awesome, but I doubt it. Doesn't the thing steal a huge amount of chakra?

Whatever. It's a weapon. FIND IT.

Well now the Naruto anime is going to get good with Sasuke turning all Psycho on us soon while Bleach and One Piece are going to go downhill in the anime IMO. (One will have fillers and the latter is going to a very boring arc IMO.)

Anyways so far Sai, Kankuro, Darui, Omoi and some other nameless people have shined in battle so they are out of the way. Now there is only about 20 something battles to go so that every Konoha Eleven plus their friends and new characters introduced gets to shine. Team 10 looks like they are next to finish which should knock the number of people down to team 8, half of team 7, team Guy, Sand Siblings and the Kages if they fight.

I totally overlooked that part where Kakuzu mentioned Hidan still being alive. I'm almost positive that Kishi will bring him back. I didn't really like Hidan since his abilities seemed almost too powerful, but at least seeing him again would be good for a laugh or two. I'm wondering if the next chapter will focus on Mifune versus Hanzo or if it'll switch back to the fight against Asuma, Dan, and Kakuzu.

Hidan would probably be thinner than Nagato by now.

I think the next chapter will be Hanzo vs Mifune. It will be fast.

If any of you's liked Zetsu invading the Kage Summit meeting in the manga, the anime aired it today and it's great animated. Dramatic music and Zetsu ridiculous voice. Probably one of my favorite scenes.

Hopefully not for the war. It would be a good way to round off Shikamaru's character just before the manga ends (if it ever ends).

Just putting my five cents in, I think Tenten will most likely face Kakuzu if she actually does have the Banana Fan (which seems likely).
This is because Darui having two matches seems unlikely, even with Kotetsu and Izumo helping out.
Also, the fact that Kakuzu can use all the Nature types, and Tenten also would be able to with the fan, makes this theory stronger.

SharpedoX

I mean, it would be great for the character's own development but maybe we may be in for a disappointment.

TsukiMirage
4th March 2011, 6:36 PM
It could be that Kishi won't even show the match with Kakuzu, Since we have already seen what Kakuzu can do. Instead he could focus on Hanzou and Mifune, Who are both unknowns at the moment.

Can't be disappointed with a character that has never actually done anything. It's honestly out time Tenten got at least a single win. Every other rookie has.

Lorde
4th March 2011, 7:53 PM
I figure that TenTen will die during this war, since she's totally useless. I used to want to see more of her back in the day, but now I've just grown tired of her. I think Kishi mentioned wanting to use her more in the story, but I doubt he's going to go through on his word. I think he's starting to favor single characters (like Sasuke and Shikamaru)...

I doubt we'll be seeing Gaara's fight anytime soon, but Kishi loves to surprise us with random moves, so it might happen. The reason I don't see Gaara and his troops fighting yet is because that seems like it could be one of the bigger fights, which I think should be saved for the end of the war.

Remember Itachi, Nagato, and Kisame are also on the prowl, Where are they now? They should be the bigger fight.

When was Kisame revived? And I'm almost positive that Itachi and Nagato will be used as back-up if the revived Kage have a hard time against Gaara and his troops. I just don't see them doing much until later on, since they're so powerful. I'd love to see what Black Zetsu is up to, but I have a feeling that he'd be able to trick Mei and get to the Daimyo.

I figured it was because you can see her, in the first panel of the third page of this chapter, landing near an object of some kind, which catches her notice (as you can see by the "!").
It'd seem somewhat odd to feature that and then just forget about her.

Shneak
5th March 2011, 3:13 AM
I've been thinking...

I think tha banana fan was only used with one attack, but we saw all the other weapons be used to their full extent and power. Maybe Tenten will get then fan and show it off.

Or maybe I'm getting too hyped for something that won't happen.

GaZsTiC
5th March 2011, 3:17 AM
I'm pretty sure that it is going to happen. I would think that Kishi wouldn't introduce weapons and not show them off fully - and Tenten, a weapon user, was conveniently gazing at the events.

Lorde
5th March 2011, 9:52 PM
I'm going to laugh out loud if Tenten does have the fan, uses it against the Allied Shinobi Forces, and reveals that she's been working for Akatsuki this whole time :rolleyes:

Anyway, I hate these new weapons that Kishi added to the story. They served their purpose I guess, but they seemed to come out of nowhere (well, except for the sealing pot I guess). I do have more respect for the Kumogakure ninja, though. Darui has grown on me and so has the Raikage. Even that one chick who works for him seemed pretty cool a couple of chapters ago.

TsukiMirage
6th March 2011, 6:18 AM
Now that would be a twist, Tenten pulling a Kabuto. And it'll be so brilliant because no one would ever suspect someone like her.

Kumo really does seem like they have their stuff together. Gathering mystical weapons, Actually training their Jinchuurikis instead of dumping them to the side, And being prepared to take care of any problems that arise at a moments notice. It actually gives me hope for Kiri and Iwa.

Indeed. But I feel sorry for her. She had the potential to be an even better character and all we've seen her defeat was a Zetsu...

Perhaps she'll really redeem herself by assisting Darui, Izumo and Kotetsu against Kakuzu simply because I don't think they'll get the job done with Darui being drained from the fight agains the Brothers and the other two simply not showing much potential.

Yeah, I think Kishi will leave Neji's father to Neji. It would be one heck of a sad fight, but it would make the most sense, IMO. That's actually one of the fights that I'm looking forward to the most, since Neji has always been really strong. I can't help but want to see what else he can do now in Part 2 of the series.

Indeed, and Kishi has even more conveniently drained Darui out of Chakra and says it so that all other weapons can't be used anymore and then suddenly there's Tenten... Weapon specialist extraordinair.. Finding a weapon that uses all five elements, when the battle shifts to a fighter that has been shown to use all five elements as well..


I guess...but Tenten has used fans before, and Temari has had no mention while Tenten is actually shown.

Temari is assisting her brother, the Kazekage against her father... The previous Kazekage... She's been mentioned, and she has her own high rank battle coming up..


Well they might as well kill Ten Ten she's always been the epithome of a worthless character.

She's not worthless.. Have you seen the recent filler episode that had her as the main character? She did two guys in that Neji and Lee couldn't beat.
