So is anyone else hoping Sakura becomes somewhat relevant and useful again?

She hasn't had a decent fight since Sasori of the Red Sand.

No kill her and replace her with some girl more competent would be the best bet. Still shocks me that she is actually popular here and moreso in Japan.

I feel bad for Sasori for actually losing to Sakura even if Chiyo did most of the fighting. (Kinda sad if you consider Naruto couldn't do anything against Dedaria while the weakest member of the rookie 9 helped beat Sasori.)

Seriously?1

Ino outside of her gimmicky Shintenshin no Jutsu, is quite sub-par, at least Sakura has Tsunada-type strength and elite healing skills….

Yeah not before the time-skip though. Also we can see where her super healing and super strength went, to nothing...... (kinda like Tsunade)

All Sakura has right now is cry no jutsu and believe in Naruto like the rest of the army. Speaking of that, where the hell is Naruto's back up?

Kakashi and Gai can't be the only ones there. Where is the rest of Kakashi's squad?

Also anyone have a feeling Gai might die? I really want to see all 8 gates opened.

If anyone back him up, vs. Tobi, Madara, or Sasuke, it should be Sakura and Sai…



For a Sasuke replacement, he sure has been M.I.A.

Agreed and I'm glad that Naruto finally transformed into the Kyuubi it's pretty cool too bad he can only hold the form for five minutes but he said that was more then enough time.

And did anyone else here get a kick out of Naruto hitting the Nibi with the Rokubi? And the Nanabi's face is really weird..

I expected a full Kyuubi, not a life-sized kyuubi cloak.

Nonetheless awesome and about time.

Tobi fears the Kyuubi, now considering killing Naruto would be easier, as the Kyuubi will revive regardless, hostless, and be easier to capture…

I see Tobi retreating within the next 5 chapters….

One question: Why the hell is there two Naruto's!?

The other one is a 'Kage Bunshin' plus its in 'Sennin Mode' (so that it could find the chakra rods).

I am a bit confused though, why is it that Naruto can initially stay in his most powerful state for only around 5 minutes (whethre it be Sennin Mode or this new Bijuu Mode).

Simple, the answer for both Sage and Cloak Modes is experience. Kurama told Naruto that due to this being their first joint transformation together, they would have a time limit (and will likely remain so till Naruto has gotten some training with this form to help adapt him to the full power). And I think Sage Mode was the same way.

That was a case of bad writing, how do you implant/transplant new eyes into someone without their knowledge?

Even if Nagato was anesthetized, his eyes still'd been painful/sore for a week or so after the surgery…. Easy, genjutsu.


As for the chapter, it was actually better then I was expecting. Seeing the five Edo Bijuus all use their Bijuu Blast and Naruto reflecting them was great. While I was expecting Naruto to simply transform into the Kyuubi, him transforming instead into a cloaked version of the Kyuubi with marking upon him was great. The best part of this chapter was simply seeing all the Bijuus in a giant melee, with it ending in a Bijuuu Blast showdown. Shame the Yonbi and Ichibi couldn't have been involved. Another interesting piece was that Tobi seemingly plans to just kill them. Very wonderful chapter.

I really like Naruto's new mode which I wanna call Kurama Mode. It just sounds cooler then old Bijuu Mode! Kurama Mode! Kurama Mode, I love it. Anyway the chapter was pretty good with Naruto's new mode, unless Sasuke gets another new Sharingan power I'd say they are almost equal again with this new power up. I thought it was cool when Kakashi mistook Naruto for his master, Minato. By the way has Kakashi ever used his Kamui move? This is the second time he was about to use it but didn't? Maybe he used it in another chapter and I forgot what it was but I would really like to see this Kamui that Kishi keeps denying Kakashi of using.

I enjoyed the chapter. Shocked to see 5 double spread pages though, I was certain there would probably be like 3 but 5 seems a lot...of awesomeness that is.

My prediction for this chapter was 50/50. I was predicting the other Bijuu to use their Biju Dama at the end similar to how they did it, and I was predicting Naruto using his and Kurama's in the next chapter to stop it, but he started it this chapter so I was a little off there. Also expected a few pages of nothing but fighting. Only thing I got wrong really was Naruto freeing a Bijuu again, I just want to get the personality of all of the Bijuu, hoping something happens to have Naruto meet all the Bijuu. I was also expecting a full Kyuubi, but this is good too, sets Naruto and Kurama apart from the rest and makes him look more like Rikudo even more.

Kakashi used it against Deidara to zap away his arm, and against Yahiko Pain to zap away the nail he threw at him. Not sure if he used it again or not, he was going to use it against Tobi at the Kage Summit, but Tobi said it wouldn't work. We already seen it though and know what it can do.

Thank you. I guess I didn't know that since he didn't say Kamui during the Deidara fight and just said Mangeyko Sharingan or however you spell it. That and the Deidara fight was so long ago. Nice to know what Kamui is despite having seen it already. I was wondering why Kakashi never used that Jutsu anymore, never had a chance to.

I was expecting Naruto to transform into the actual Kyuubi, but instead we got a Kyuubi cloak. It wasn't that bad, but it feels as if Kishi is holding out on us. Anyway, I was impressed with the other Bijuu; I had no idea that they could charge a Bijuu Ball together, but I'm glad that Naruto and the Kyuubi have charged a Bijuu Ball of their own. This battle gets more climactic as it progresses.

I can't even imagine why more power would be necessary; the Kyuubi is supposed to have almost unlimited chakra, so this should be as far as Naruto can go in terms of power-ups. Only Sasuke seems to be invulnerable to such limits.

Try to keep in mind that this is likely the last arc of the manga. Of course Naruto would be pretty strong by this time. The problem with Bleach was that Aizen and Ichigo were broken then the manga still continued afterwards, and will likely continue for a long time. This is not the case for Naruto.

i know but i would of liked their power level to be lower than this i mean it's pretty damn high it would of been cool if it wasn't so high thats all now it just seems more like battle of over power monsters if you know what i mean
i wouldn't mind if it were at least a bit stronger than bee but naruto in comparison to bee makes bee look weak i mean even his chakra level is beyond bee's it's kind of crazy and their only a tail of difference

Regarding the Hachibi's power compared to the Kyuubi's power: I'm completely confused. The Kyuubi made it seem as if the Hachibi had almost as much power as himself, but now it seems that the Kyuubi is much stronger.

But yeah, everyone else is irrelevant at the moment; Kakashi and Guy are only hanging around to provide commentary apparently.

I have no issues with the cover, I do think it's a little crowded but it's 7 important characters so I overlook it, although I don't know for sure if Naruto really had all that much importance in the chapters that it covers, but he's pretty much always on ever cover so I'm not surprise to see him on it anyways, at less it's just half his face...albeit it it's pretty much the biggest face there.

I think it does the job.

I think it could have done without Gaara's sand thing there, it felt out of place when I first saw it...well when I first saw it I thought it was part of Killer A's shirt then I quickly realized it was Gaara's sand, but I still think it's kind of out of place, even though Tsunade, Killer A, and Mei are showing off their powers.

sadly, youre probably right about this.
my random, wild predictions for the very ending:
in the battle between naruto and sasuke, naruto completes his bond with kurama but both sasuke and naruto end up killing each other but tsunade saves naruto by bringing him back to life the same way granny chiyo did, obviously resulting in tsunade's death. after that, naruto achieves his dream and becomes hokage. there you go, happy ending. prolly incredibly inaccurate, but hey no speculated endings are more right or wrong than the next.

I used to love Mei, but now I'm kind of bored with her. Her fight with Zetsu went largely unwitnessed and I'm sure that her battle with Madara will meet the same fate.

A good chapter but I couldn't but laugh at Kyuubi. He looks like a clown with all those markings. Why Kishi decided to make all those markings I'll never understand.

Naruto's new form is pretty cool, now if only he change his basic appearance he would look decent.

I was a bit confused as to how Naruto deflected all 5 Bijuu damas. It looked like it was speed or something.

The end was pretty cool as its 9 tails of power + Naruto with Sage Chakra vs 23 tails of power.

Looking forward to the next chapter.

Seriously what is with all the useless or not being used enough females in Naruto? My gosh it's bad. I remember thinking at the start of part 2 Sakura was really going to become useful and battle as often as Naruto and Sasuke...I was wrong on all accounts, she been demoted to stereotype female healer with no backbone to stand up for herself. Hinata and Ino did get to do some things but nothing huge. The Asuma plot was more Shikamaru then is was Ino and Choji to be honest. Hinata bravely stood up to Pain, confessed her love for Naruto and gets stabbed for her troubles. Tenten is the same as part 1, Tsunade hasn't been relevant in years, Karin was useful until Sasuke ditched her, Konan was awesome despite her very limited appearances and she was a full fledged cold blooded ninja who showed no emotion before she met Naruto, and then there's Mei who was very interesting but never got a big storyline like A and Onoki did. A real shame.

Sakura's still a main character, she just wasn't handled well. Even though she wouldn't have won, I would have loved for Sakura to get as much development as Naruto during part 2 and then fight Sasuke alone and actually put up a decent fight before she has to be saved by Naruto and/or Kakashi. It's disappointing that Sakura is part of team seven yet she will never reach Naruto and Sasuke's level. Give the girl a chance already.

Stats actually cover more than just those 3.

Ino's (http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Infobox:Ino_Yamanaka_Stats)

Hinata's (http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Infobox:Hinata_Hyūga_Stats)

Sakura's (http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Infobox:Sakura_Haruno_Stats)


Just to compare, Naruto's (http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Infobox:Naruto_Uzumaki_Stats) and Sasuke's (http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Infobox:Sasuke_Uchiha_Stats) stats.

These stats are from the 3rd data book. Anyone can see what went wrong with the stats. (Sakura even having the same stats as Naruto is laughable and insulting at the same time as this databook covers volumes 38 to 43. AKA Konoha vs the Zombie duo and the the end of the Sasuke vs Itachi arc.)

The cover is pretty good except for the fact that Gaara's face is covered up with his sand which was stupid. Also where is Edo Madara and why is Naruto even on the cover?

Stats aren't really there to compare to other characters really, they're there to show where a character's strong point is and to compare their previous stats to see how much they improve. They help us know what the character can do in a fight and what they can't do, it's not like Dragon Ball's power level thing.

Edo Madara is at the back showing his back, probably in reference to when he was first shown as an Edo Tensei. Naruto is pretty much always on the cover, I don't know which chapters exactly will be in the volume but I'm pretty sure Naruto was in most of them helping out so I guess that's reason enough, for me at less. As for Gaara's sand, I don't think it's stupid to have it there, I do think it would have been better without it or done differently, but Kishi probably wanted to show the Kages as they are in battle, so Gaara, Tsunade, Mei, and Killer A are showing their jutsus, and Onoki is half dead.

Yeah, I had such high hopes for Sakura in part 2. After her awesome Sasori fight I thought she would stay a strong character...oh well.

As far as the strongest female thing goes. Sakura has more strength then the other girls, but I always felt Ino and Hinata had more interesting jutsus and moves overall. Hinata's a Hyuga so she's awesome by that alone XD and I always liked Ino's mind take over jutsu.

I remember when I read that chapter I was fearful that Hinata had been killed off. She was always a favorite of mine of Naruto's classmates because despite her bloodline she's a weaker ninja that wanted to be stronger. Unlike Sakura I never considered Hinata pathetic though, because she is trying her hardest to get stronger. Ino's somewhere in the middle and Tenten doesn't get screentime at all. Tsunade just lost importance in part 2, I don't know why. Shame she never got a fight like her old pals did before they died. Females in Naruto just don't do well.

Aren't we currently still waiting to see what Tsunade does against Madara? Maybe there is redemption in her future yet.

On the topic of Hinata, I always thought she was the second strongest of the Konoha girls, after Sakura. Which is probably poor judgement on my part, because I know how terribly, awfully weak she is. Ino is probably up there, but her mind-transfer jutsu has never impressed me. In theory it's very cool, but functionally it strikes me as both boring and flawed (since we've not seen her do all that much except think from inside a bad guy's body, and her own body is left in need of protection, respectively). I am far more a fan of Hinata's jutsus, probably because I like the Byakugan. Neji is always great to watch because he puts it to such better use than Hinata, but I do still think she has very cool and entertaining abilities/attacks.

It would have been really nice if Tenten was more than background scenery, though.

Umm, Naruto told everyone to stay out of the fight...plus, when Naruto was in the situation that he was...Hinata was the only one who could see it thanks to her eyes...Sakura was healing Shikamaru at the time. This is what I don't understand, everyone is quick to bash Sakura, but when Hinata does something it's always looked to as a heavenly act. Hinata didn't do crap to progress the story...Pain almost killing her did...then again, I already mentioned this, Naruto cared for everyone in the village, had someone else taken the blow and gotten fatally injured, he'd have still raged out.

Maybe because Sakura actually deserves the bashing? Sakura was not healing Shikamaru at that time either, you are mixing it up with the anime or something. She was with Hinata and Hinata's caretaker Jonin who could also see the battle.

Proof (http://www.mangareader.net/93-443-10/naruto/chapter-438.html)

Not being able to see the battle is a lame excuse as Sakura was pretty close and Naruto was arrogant to think he is the only one who can take on Pain.

Hinata doesn't do crap to progress the story because she has the bad luck of not being the main heroine. Funny thing is that whenever Hinata does progress the plot, it is more meaningful than Sakura could ever manage. Like the Chunin exams where her fight with Neji is among the best fights while Sakura vs Ino was the worst in part I. Plus she was the one that motivated Naruto to beat Neji.

As for the last bit of your statement, no that is not true at all. Naruto would not rage into 6 tails just because a random ninja who he doesn't know is attacked. He will get angry and maybe go Kyuubi but not straight into 6 tails. If he did then it would be bad writing on Kishi's part.

Hinata confessing added to Naruto's rage as the person who loved him is killed before his eyes even if he doesn't love her like she does him. If Sakura was injured then yeah Naruto would go 6 tails as well but it would have to be one of the people Naruto actually knows.

As for the Konoha girls, as I recall Ino was basically top of the class after Sasuke and Shino, and she did pretty good in the fight with Asuma. And Hinata could easily be insanely strong, given the nature of her abilities. I was really hoping that the Byakugan would be used to perhaps see some sort of counter in the Edo summons. Still, at least they weren't made into jokes like Sakura and Tenten were. Ino and Hinata actually accomplished something in this war.

I thought Ino wasn't great in part 1 because she just seemed like the female of Shikamaru's group and also loved Sasuke. But I have to admit Ino's proved to be a fairly decent character as time went on. She became best friends with Choji and Shikamaru, two guys I would think would be below her popular status but she became friends with them much faster then Sakura befriended Naruto that's for sure. She also was willing to take out Asuma when he came back as a Edo zombie. I know he was already dead and all but still she had the guts to take down someone she loved for the safety of her village and friends, compare that to Sakura and her not wanting to kill Sasuke (even though her poison kunai wouldn't have worked it was the act that would have been enough) so I've come to really respect Ino as a female ninja. As for Hinata, I was hoping to see her get a fight in the war arc and save Neji's life once while they were fighting his father just to show she's come a long way since the Chunin exam. Well at least Hinata's not on stereotype female heal duty, she's out there fighting! And then there's Tenten, easily the worst female in Naruto.

Okay, I haven't read any old chapter in a long time time, so it's kind of hard remember exactly (p.s. the anime blows a lot of things out of proportion, so I rarely watch it). Your right, it is easy to bash on a character with flaws...too bad Hinata only appears every 40 charpters so it's hard to give her one to bash on. You see main characters are meant to have flaws...Naruto has quite a few as well, so does Sasuke...but no, we all have to single out the main heroin because she's apparently the worst. I don't get it, she's accomplished more on 3 pages then Hinata's accomplished in her whole career in the manga.


Not being able to see the battle is a lame excuse as Sakura was pretty close and Naruto was arrogant to think he is the only one who can take on Pain.
Because I'm lazy, I didn't want to try and find a picture that proves Sakura was busy doing something else, but if you flip back a page or two from the image you posted...from what her dialogue is, you can tell she didn't even know Hinata went to attack Pain, so that proves something. Also, of cause Naruto would think that, it Naruto, he had a bone to pick with Pain, plus he was the only one capable of doing anything to the guy...if you saw, everyone else (except Kakashi) was thrown around like a toothpick.


Hinata doesn't do crap to progress the story because she has the bad luck of not being the main heroine. Funny thing is that whenever Hinata does progress the plot, it is more meaningful than Sakura could ever manage. Like the Chunin exams where her fight with Neji is among the best fights while Sakura vs Ino was the worst in part I. Plus she was the one that motivated Naruto to beat Neji.
Umm...I don't see what your getting at...Naruto was personally motivated to beat Neji because he looked down on Naruto as well, Hinata's part was just there. Naruto wanted to prove that he could defeat someone who was strong to begin with. If you noticed, once Naruto won, he didn't once think of Hinata and only told Neji about himself. But since your brought up this motivation thing...Naruto vs Gaara was something interesting. Now, I'll be the one to admit it wasn't just Sakura he was fighting for...but it was a key role in that battle.


As for the last bit of your statement, no that is not true at all. Naruto would not rage into 6 tails just because a random ninja who he doesn't know is attacked. He will get angry and maybe go Kyuubi but not straight into 6 tails. If he did then it would be bad writing on Kishi's part.

If it has always been resealable, she should have had plenty left over after her battle vs. Orochimaru and Kabuto…….and should have had no need to waste the entire chakra reserve pooled up. I guess because vs. Orochimaru she had little help, and vs. Madara there are other Kage to help her…...

Personally, I would shed nary a tear if "A" dies…..he gets on my nerves…...

The only thing that I like about him is that he gave Sasuke a run for his money when they fought at the Gokage Summit. Apart from that, I don't really care about his character.

Mei is the only want I care to live among the Gokage. I just really like her XD Gaara already died once so seeing him die again would be like seeing Kakashi die again. It's not necessary. Onoki feels like he is going to die a very honorable death in the Madara fight. If he does die heroically then I won't complain. Tsunade I kinda don't care about anymore. Truth is she should have just died during her coma because her character still isn't relevant at all. A I can see dying and then Killer Bee becomes the new Raikage when the war is all over. This war arc really does need some deaths to make it feel real.

Yeah, I'm all for characters growing and maturing but Naruto's wasn't the best. His methods go against the way of the natural shinobi. Whatever happened to wanting to be Hokage?

I don't see it that way at all.

Naruto and Nagato had a connection, that being Jiraiya, Naruto wanted to know how someone who was trained by Jiraiya just like him could have taken such a drastic turn. After hearing Nagato's painful life story, Naruto realized that killing Nagato wouldn't do anything and instead decided to bring peace to the world so no one would have to end up like Nagato or other villains.

I would have liked to seen Nagato fight at the time, but Kishi gave us that later on so I really have nothing to complain about.

Also, I wouldn't call Naruto's interest in bringing peace to be sudden, he's always ended up turning people, was only a matter of time before he went for the whole world stopping their pointless wars and fights. I'm glad Kishi has done what he's done.


Also the way everyone just magically accepted his existence, when this was not the first time he worked toward helping the village…..

I wouldn't call it "magical", and this was the first time he saved the entire village. He did do other things, but nothing on the level that he did with Nagato.

I think being a peace-keeper does tie in with the Hokage title, but the fact that Naruto wasn't interested in peace until he met Nagato was just bad writing on Kishi's part. There should've been some build-up to that, but there wasn't.

Naruto being interested in peace was bad writing, but Jiraiya and Minato suddenly always wanting it was even worst. Especially Minato's reasoning about the ninja system being the cause. Kishi seem to have forgotten that he had already shown that ninjas were fighting long before the villages and ninja system was ever created. If anything, the villages help lessen the amount of fighting done.

I don't see how Naruto wanting peace was bad writing. It wasn't sudden because Jiraiya was talking to him about it during their training.

It was sudden because the flashback was shown at the start of the Pain arc. If Kishi had been good at foreshadowing, he would've given us that information a long time ago, maybe around the time that Part 2 started. Springing up peaceful ideals more than halfway through a story about ninja is just sloppy.

Crimsonlink

The fact that you need to destroy the current ninja system for peace is a stupid idea. Naruto was always about ninjas and now Kishi wants to change that to having world peace. He diverted from Naruto's dream of becoming Hokage so hard that gave former fans like me whiplash.

I think the worst part is that if the world does have peace in Naruto, all hatred will magically be forgotten.

Suddenly all the Danzou, Tobi and Orochimaru of the Naruto world will keel over and die or something. All the small villages will forget all the grudges they had against the big villages and same for big villages against other big villages.

Also Naruto doesn't want someone like Pain to appear again but that is a unrealistic goal as he cannot be all over the world to prevent Pains from popping up.

I dunno how Kishi is gonna end it but thats really the only I'm sticking around for in this manga.

29th January 2012, 3:18 AM
I'm under the impression that Naruto ending this ninja war by defeating Tobi (or Madara, or Kabuto, or Sasuke, or whoever the heck else the writer comes up with) will not automatically create an everlasting peace. I'm not sure why everyone here seems to be worried that it will.

If I had to try to project an ending, I'd assume that Naruto will achieve his dream of becoming Hokage, and in the process of that and ending this war, he will become an iconic national figure. This doesn't suddenly change the world in a snap of course, but Naruto's power and influence as a national hero will work slow but consistent changes in individuals and communities, while the governmental power he (and Gaara we may also be able to count on in this respect too) wields as Hokage will work more structural changes in the ninja villages as a whole - all of which aim toward codified rules for peaceful interaction. Granted, troubled or angry criminal types will continue to pop up from time to time, but they will no longer be as common or as institutionalized as they have been since the beginning of the manga, and the methods of dealing with them will be more humane and "Naruto-y." Not perfect, but better. I think this is something Naruto can believably achieve.


On a separate note, I find myself not bothered by the fact that Naruto has developed additional goals, especially since he's thinking from a wider perspective than the very limited, in-village Hokage dream. As far as I'm concerned, becoming Hokage, saving Sasuke, and helping to change the ninja world are all goals that interconnect and can be achieved without necessarily sacrificing any of the three.

How is that sloppy? It's obvious that the plot was not focused on peace in the first part. That's what happens in a series that's like Naruto; the plot changes. Just because it's about ninja doesn't mean that there can't be a character that wants peace.

Kishi is really giving the impression that Naruto will create an everlasting peace along with the prophecy that is about him and peace that the toads made up.

Your ending actually sounds amazingly good but I doubt it would happen.

Naruto's dream was always selfish because he wanted people to like him so I never really accepted his desire to become Hokage and I still don't to this day. Sure acknowledgement is nice and Naruto deserved some because of the cold treatment of the village; but becoming Hokage for that reason only just rubbed me the wrong way.

It is the equivalent of wanting to become President/Leader just so everyone likes you which is rather dumb because not everyone in the world will like you. Nor can you expect to accept and like everyone else.

Naruto wanting to save Sasuke is actually jeopardizing his plan to become Hokage. Because as Naruto said before, a person who can't save his friend doesn't deserve to be Hokage. Also there is the tiny probability that Naruto might not survive.

It would be more believable if Naruto worked to bring peace to Konoha and maybe some of the smaller countries, but the whole world? No way IMO.

Also @TsukiMirage the villages actually caused MORE fighting. Now people fight for their village, hate other villages, attempt to destroy other villages and so on. Before the villages, it was hundreds of clans fighting each other. The villages brought various clans together, meaning they were no longer fighting against each other. There were still wars, but the various divisions were lessen.


I'm under the impression that Naruto ending this ninja war by defeating Tobi (or Madara, or Kabuto, or Sasuke, or whoever the heck else the writer comes up with) will not automatically create an everlasting peace. I'm not sure why everyone here seems to be worried that it will. Between Tobi being made as the source of all the troubles, the power of Naruto's words as shown with Gaara changing the hearts of the entire ninja Alliance, and the prophecy it does seem like it'll be going that way.

I prefer your ending though.

Itachi was a big Wall Banger because of what he did. To this day I still don't get the point of him using Tsukiyomi to mindfu*k Sasuke for 3 days with his clan's death and mess him up beyond belief.

Plus he had a backup plan exactly like Tobi's world domination by hypnotizing Sasuke into being good again, facepalm Kishi. Worse is the fact that Naruto thought it was a good idea.

I only started reading regularly after the Invasion of Pain arc, so I never really had an opinion of Itachi because of his death earlier in that arc, but it did seem like he was power hungry and cookie cutter evil until his intentions were revealed, and his character was instantly redeemed. But most of the Akatsuki have been handled well.

I don't really care for Itachi being revived, but he did play a role in the plot, no matter how minor, and finally answered a question that the series had. (I feel like I'm talking about Lost.)

And now we have a prophecy that basically says that Naruto is destined to change the shinobi world? Talk about contradictions.

We don't pay attention to what is said. It will always be changed by some sort of hax no jutsu. It would be funny if the "peace" they talk about actually ends in stripping away ninja powers, and then the world somehow becomes like our world to day. *cough inyuasha cough* That is how I see it going.

Either that or Sasuke and Naruto kill each other, leading to sakura becoming the Hokage (and me destroying my computer),

Or that it turns out that Naruto and Sasuke are both Homosexual and lives their lives together, like what most people thought at the end of part one. I mean, I understand friendship and everything, but Naruto, this has just becom effing rediculous.

Anyways, Liked the chapter. I want a baby Kurama, it is so cute.

Edit: Joltik is on my line of thinking sort of- I guess. DOWN WITH SASUNARU FANS!!!

Seeing the other Jinchuuriki and Bijuus was once again great, especially since this time we got to see some of their personality. Naruto feeling sorry towards Yagura and the Kyuubi mentions his kiss with Sasuke was hilarious. And the chibi-Bijuus were far too cute for giant monsters. Strangely, Roshi and Son didn't see to have that bad of a relationship. Gonna be interesting to see what happens now that Tobi doesn't have his Paths anymore. Awesome chapter.

Overall a decent chapter but I'm looking forward to the clash between Naruto and Sasuke now that the Bijuu and most of the Zombie army is taken care off.

That is unless Madara is so OP that he takes out all 5 kages.

BTW Rikudou Sennin looks so much like Minato its not even funny, Kishi needs to make sure that they both don't have the same face unless Minato's ancestor was an offshoot of the Sennin's family

Seeing Naruto and the Kyuubi together is great, but I still thought that the chapter was lacking a little extra pazzaz. And although I had always wanted Naruto to meet the other jinchuriki, it didn't go exactly the way I pictured it; they were certainly nice, but their personalities weren't as dynamic as I had expected them to be.

Oh yeah, I agree the chapter was lacking. I don't know where they go from here with the Bijuu's. I agree the Jinchuriki's should of had more personality but what can you do? Kishi is rushing to get this part done.

I have a strange feeling that Tobi's plan to fuse the Bijuu will succeed, but that Naruto will seal the Juubi within himself in order to save the world after Tobi is defeated. Some of the stuff in this week's chapter made me think that it's possible, but I hope I'm wrong as I don't want that kind of deus ex machina.

Bro, you are confused regardless of whether he has a bit of either Gyuuki/Kurama's chakra, he still needs the bijuu themselves.

What happened was, as of Naruto's latest developments, he figures it is easier to kill B and Naruto, and have those bijuu revive 'wild', and thus easier to subdue/capture. Thus, killing is easier than capturing 2 of the very few 100% cooperative bijuu/jinchuuriki teams, possibly the strongest two as well, outside of them, who was like that, but Yagura?

Oooh, just once, I would like to see Sasuke completely and utterly outmatched by Naruto. Naruto has had to basically be a step (or half-step) behind Sasuke at every single juncture for this manga to work the way it has, and I respect that - I even can respect that the final fight between the two will again necessitate Sasuke's being equal or greater to Naruto in order to preserve the sense of true achievement in Naruto's victory - but just this once I really would enjoy seeing Naruto just be capable of simply squashing Sasuke like a bug without blinking (not that that's what I want their friendship/rivalry to be like in general, or even ever again).

Why not just use the moon's eye plan now if Naruto and Bee's bijuu chakra isn't needed anymore? In all fairness, getting the two didn't seem all that important to Tobi. Don't forget, he started this war unnecessarily when he could have gotten both Kirabi and Naruto without starting it. He "revealed" his plan to the Kages and informed them that Akatsuki didn't have Kirabi. He purposely had Kisame lose against Kirabi in order to get into Kumo and has allowed Naruto to go uncaught when he has already proven he could control even a prefect Jinchuuriki. By all that we've seen, getting Kirabi and Naruto is at most secondary to whatever he's really planning.

*clenched fists* I could see that happening if Kishi plan on Sasuke somehow awakening the Rinnegan, in which case Sasuke would have to take a beating before it activates. Doubt Kishi would introduce the whole connection between EMS and the Rinnegan without giving Sasuke a way to gain it. Sort of a trhrowback to VotE.

We don't really know why the Sanbi was running wild, but I've always assumed that Yagura started to fight against Tobi's control, so Tobi killed him before he broke free. In doing so, the Sanbi was also killed but was reborn a while later. I wish Kishi would clear things up just so that we'd see exactly what went down, but he probably won't.

Kokuo, Saiken and Chomei were sealed somewhere between Part 1 and 2, and then Shukaku, Isobu, Matatabi and Son were sealed during Part 2. Kisame mentioned in chapter 353 that there was an order to how the Bijuu must be sealed, or else the statue thing would collapse.

He isn't dead but Shukaku was extracted anyways. So right now Shukaku is in the Gedo Mazou Statue waiting to be used or something. Will probably be a plot point when Naruto goes to save Yamato and destroy the source of the White Zetsu Clones which is the Hiraishima tree thing.

No since Kyuubi was shown to have intelligence back in the Chunnin exam. Plus Shukaku was in Gaara, who is one of the smartest Naruto characters even when he was a crazed psychotic killer.

I didn't say they weren't smart, I said they were untameable. The Kyuubi seemed very smart in part one, smarter then half the characters in the series I'd say but the thought of him willingly working with Naruto was out of the question. Shukaku wasn't out long enough to even expand on his personality to much other then he was happy to be out and wanted to kill anything that was put in front of him. The Gaara/Shukaku relationship wasn't expanded upon very much either so it is difficult to say how they viewed each other...well Gaara seemed to embrace the demon side of him because of how messed up he was, even going to sleep on purpose to activate Shukaku. Shukaku however we don't really know how he viewed Gaara. I wonder how Gaara sleeps these days now?

Put together, Mei became Mizukage around the time Kiri discovered Yagura being controlled.

And considering the Sharingan holds the ability to control any Bijuu, there would have been no need to just allow the Sanbi to roam free when they could have had total control of it.

Sorry, maybe powerwise, but last couple of chapters proved that Naruto still needs to use Sage Mode, no denying that without it, he wouldn't have found the rods sticking out of the Bijuu's..

Naruto : Could it be ... you don't know ?
Tobi : ?

Hachibi : Huh !

Naruto : Maybeeeeee ... Nah, I won't tell you !

Gai : Seeing how Naruto managed to progess and grow up like this ... makes me look like an old senile man.

Kakashi : What ? that's not like you. I don't say that often but ... Aren't you the one who said our youth is far from being over ?
But since we came here ...

Gai : Stop. Don't say anything unnecessary.

Kakashi : Now That's more like you, Gai.

Tobi : This face ...
When Tobi grabs his Fan, water starts to drop.

Tobi : Sweat ? No, it's rain. That's it. Fighting thoses guys shouldn't make me sweat. Naruto is just a test to Sasuke.
Thoses guys are supposed to be just entertainment to me.

I fully understand their powers. This uneasyness doesn't come from their powers. Then what is it ?
No, it doesn't matter to me. Naruto or whatever or whoever doesn't matter to me.

Once this war is over, they won't have any future nor anything left. All will become futile.

Communication Team:

ComA : In... Incredible. Did you felt what I felt ?
ComB : This is unbelievable. There's no mistake. It was the power of the Nine Tails !

Ao : Indeed. ( But this is a little different from what I expected. )

Shikaku : What's the status ?

Ao : Uzumaki Naruto drove Tobi into a corner with some huge power.
This chakra is unreal. But maybe they're under pressure.
Counting Kakashi, Gai and Bee too, they're just FOUR !

Shikaku : Inoichi ! Please talk directly to everybody in the Reinforcements Squad and give them the status about Naruto's Team.
15 seconds should be enough.

They're still fighting despites being just 4, we must do anything to support them.

the Naruto we're supposed to protect along with Bee. Everyone is fighting with every last dip of their powers. Same for Kakashi and Gai.
And everyone in the alliance is fighting with the same thought in mind. )

Next time I'll be right next to you while I grap your hand and walk with you. Please ... wait for me.

Shikamru : He's not the type to think calmly about a plan, I know. ( That's why I'm coming, wait for me Naruto ! I'm on my way )

Ino : Thank you, dad. He transmitted to us Naruto's strong will and fellings. Don't worry dad, we don't let them in vain. )

Tenten : I wonder if Gai-sensei is okay. I wonder if he's protecting Naruto. Kakashi is with them so it should be okay.

Sai : If it wasn't for the heavy rain, I could use my ink summons to go to Naruto ...

537 : The Road to Radiance.

Naruto has been entrusted the 9 names.

Tobi : Difficult ... names ? So what ?
Naruto : Could it be ... you don't know ?
Tobi : ?

Hachibi : Huh !

Naruto : Maybeeeeee ... Nah, I won't tell you !

Gai : Seeing how Naruto managed to progess and grow up like this ... makes me look like an old senile man.

Kakashi : What ? that's not like you. I don't say that often but ... Aren't you the one who said our youth is far from being over ?
But since we came here ...

Gai : Stop. Don't say anything unnecessary.

Kakashi : Now That's more like you, Gai.

Tobi : This face ...
When Tobi grabs his Fan, water starts to drop.

Tobi : Sweat ? No, it's rain. That's it. Fighting thoses guys shouldn't make me sweat. Naruto is just a test to Sasuke.
Thoses guys are supposed to be just entertainment to me.

I fully understand their powers. This uneasyness doesn't come from their powers. Then what is it ?
No, it doesn't matter to me. Naruto or whatever or whoever doesn't matter to me.

Once this war is over, they won't have any future nor anything left. All will become futile.

Communication Team:

ComA : In... Incredible. Did you felt what I felt ?
ComB : This is unbelievable. There's no mistake. It was the power of the Nine Tails !

Ao : Indeed. ( But this is a little different from what I expected. )

Shikaku : What's the status ?

Ao : Uzumaki Naruto drove Tobi into a corner with some huge power.
This chakra is unreal. But maybe they're under pressure.
Counting Kakashi, Gai and Bee too, they're just FOUR !

Shikaku : Inoichi ! Please talk directly to everybody in the Reinforcements Squad and give them the status about Naruto's Team.
15 seconds should be enough.

They're still fighting despites being just 4, we must do anything to support them.

ComC : Everyone ? My chakra network will never be able to deal with the strain.

Inochi : I can get you 10 seconds.

ComC : Inochi !

Shikaku : Sorry, but this is important. don't let me down during thoses 10 secs.

Inochi : You could more polite while asking. Let me handle this. ( Message from HQ : Important Status report. Uzumaki Naruto is giving all he can.
the Naruto we're supposed to protect along with Bee. Everyone is fighting with every last dip of their powers. Same for Kakashi and Gai.
And everyone in the alliance is fighting with the same thought in mind. )

Ninjas running.

Inochi : ( We're on the verge of winning this war ! ) Inochi gets a nosebleed ( A serious one ).

Shikaku : ...

Inochi *panting *: Haaa ... heee ... I knew it, you're a poor talker, and I gave you 20 secs !

ComC : Commander !


Shikaku : Indeed. ( That's how you feeling are strong, my friend. )

Inochi : Sorry.

Hinata : Naruto-kun ! I always tried to follow you, to catch up to you ... but once this war is over. I won't try to catch up to you anymore.
Next time I'll be right next to you while I grap your hand and walk with you. Please ... wait for me.

Kiba : Since I know you Naruto, you always marked anything. I'll leave the fighting with Madara to you until I get here.

Shino : We're going to support Naruto perfectly. And there's no because.

Shikamaru : That Naruto, he's doing all right. He's Naruto after all. I can't imagine how reckless he'll be but ... Haaa My head already hurts.

Chouji : Naruto's as dumb as I'm fat, I know that but ... I can't say I'm surprised. ( Wait for me, Dumber Naruto ! I'll be there in a flash ! )

Shikamru : He's not the type to think calmly about a plan, I know. ( That's why I'm coming, wait for me Naruto ! I'm on my way )

Ino : Thank you, dad. He transmitted to us Naruto's strong will and fellings. Don't worry dad, we don't let them in vain. )

Tenten : I wonder if Gai-sensei is okay. I wonder if he's protecting Naruto. Kakashi is with them so it should be okay.

Sai : If it wasn't for the heavy rain, I could use my ink summons to go to Naruto ...

Lee : If you have the time to complain, you need to speed up Sai-san.

Sai : Right. ( Is that how a friend feels ? I think I understand clearly now, Naruto. )

If this is true, then I am both happy and bored, because while it'll be nice to see all the rookies working as a team, but outside of Naruto, what can they seriously do?

Uchiha Sasuke - I am ready...

I kinda have to agree with you. While I think if they work together they could very well be a force to fear, what really can they do at this point to any of the big baddies, Tobi, Sasuke and Kabuto? Who knows, maybe they'll surprise us all. I do like that they'll help. I hate Naruto's "I'll handle this myself! Don't interfere!" attitude he's had nearly all of part 2 whether it was against Kakuzu or Pain, Naruto is a spotlight hog. Remember the lesson Kakashi taught you in part 1 about teamwork Naruto? You've got friends, let them help you...even if your way stronger then them and they probably will just get in your way at this point.

I can't wait to see them all back together. I agree that they're not amazingly strong aside from Naruto, but I can see something like Goku's Spirit Bomb happening, with them all giving Naruto their Chakra so he can beat Tobi. And I'm only half joking with that.

I like the sound of the chapter, took them long enough to finally go to where Naruto is, well maybe it wasn't really all that long time isn't that easy to figure out in writing, still in terms of chapters it took awhile.


I wonder how many ninja will be there to support Naruto and the others. Shikaku a few chapters ago said something along the lines of all the divisions aside from Gaara's will go help(And I'll assume Chojuro and whoever left near him will stay where they're at to watch the Damiyos still...I want to know what's happening with Black Zetsu though). The first day of the war, half of the alliance died(I believe Kishi said they died, they lost half of the alliance one way or another, whether dead or just not in shape to fight anymore), plus whoever else died/are out of the battle, plus they might keep some people in the area they're in to watch the Edo Tensei in case someone tries to free them or something. I hope the chapter comes out today.

Oh my god. The chapter doesn't have much action obviously, but it's clearly setting up the final battle.

Tobi knows that he's outnumbered.
The Alliance is going to meet up at the battlefield.
The Konoha 12 may actually get to fight together.
Sasuke appears, and will likely show up there soon.
(Weird how the Kages weren't mentioned at all.)

Tobi's so quotable. Once this war is over, they won't have any future nor anything left. All will become futile.

I remember before the war started how epic it all looked with Tobi, Kabuto and their armies of Zetsu's and Edo Tensei zombies and how they outnumbered the Alliance. That really didn't make a difference at all because no big name characters died. I kinda hope...no not kinda, I do hope Sasuke kills someone from Konoha in front of Naruto. Maybe one of his friends who come to help. Lets see Naruto's peace talk no jutsu work when Sasuke has killed Sakura in front of him in cold blood to show Naruto he will never go back to the good side. I'm so wrong for wanting someone to die but this is war! There needs to be the emotional death that really shakes up the war and makes you care about the characters.

While I'm glad Sasuke is once again appearing, I'm hoping he'll actually stick around and do something this time around. getting a little tired of the whole popping in for a page thing he's been doing since the war began.


Naruto's dad was fastest, and he had no Kurama to count on…..so Naruto can find a workaround surely…. Minato could teleport. Unless Naruto can figure out Hiraishin from those three guys, he'll be out of luck.

Heck, for Naruto and Sasuke, anything is possible.

We have Kurama on one side, and possibly the best Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan……..

Kishi's current favorite characters are Choji and Killer Bee? I can understand why he'd like Killer Bee, but Choji has always seemed like such a bland character to me.

I like how Kishi states Deidara is pretty much the most hax as an Edo. Haha, it's pretty much true as well.

I guess were going to see some "Final Art" big bangs soon, as Deidara is at such an advantage being already dead.

New chapter. I was ready to moan and groan because I feel like we've had enough flashbacks and hyping of Naruto etc. But then the final two pages really pulled me in.

Say hello Sasuke.

TsukiMirage
8th February 2012, 8:31 AM
Not a bad chapter, even if it did get my hopes up about Sasuke actually doing something other then just appearing for a page. Liked how Naruto was teasing Tobi about the names and Tobi's reaction to Naruto possibly knowing something he didn't. It was also nice to see everyone's motivations in coming to help Naruto, especially Hinata and Shino's who were the best. Still don't see what they can possibly do to help when the Gedo Mazo already owned them before. Hopefully Sasuke will actually be in the next chapter doing something other then standing around. An alright chapter.

15 pages of "lets go help Naruto" and 2 pages of footprints, How disappointing IMO :( I liked Hinata's part, but thats just b/c i think shes cute i like the low-key love story and wouldnt mind seeing it play out more. We saw Sasuke for a page, that was cool, i guess .... I waited a week to have my excitement dashed by anticlimactic nothingness. Im not even sure of what will happen next chapter, there was to much going on to give a hint. Will Sasuke do something other then walk around? Will Naruto and Tobi finally fight? Will 100000 Ninja show up and take Tobi on 100000-1? Will Guy, Kakashi, and Bee be useful again? who knows, and we have to wait a week to see. One interesting line though was Tobi saying that Naruto was just a pawn to provoke Sasuke. I cant help but wonder what Tobi plans to do with Sasuke and why Naruto went from being the host of the Nine tails to a pawn to provoke Saskue. Other than that, nothing really happened :/

I loved the last picture of Sasuke though. He just looks so evil and I love the last words on the page. Carnage is about to come to the battlefield. Don't get my hopes up and then disappoint Kishimoto.

I will laugh my a*s off if the army reaches Sasuke instead of Naruto and he pawns the army using his EMS and its up to the Rookie 9 to fight him.

Oh man I would love for some of the army to meet up with Sasuke just to see how much his hax has increased. Maybe Sasuke vs Sakura with Sakura's death? Oh the possibilities man.

Plus, if Sasuke kills Sakura (or any of the rookies for that matter), then we'd finally see the end of the whole "I need to save Sasuke" melodrama from Naruto.

Or at least we should cause if Naruto is still wanting to save Sasuke after he kills even one rookie (able to forgive him for that act), then I'll lose all respect for Naruto and Kishi.
