This may sound cold, but I don't care whether Minato's death is "emotional" or not. I just want him to have a decent farewell after he completes his purpose (giving Naruto the other half of Kurama's chakra). I don't want a sappy goodbye scene although that's probably what we'll get unfortunately. I just wish the whole "Naruto's dead" thing would be resolved quickly.

Speaking of which, I liked Suigetsu's double water gun technique. It was like the Second Mizukage's jutsu and I'm glad that we're getting more parallels between Suigetsu and him; I mean they are from the same clan after all and I wanted more references to their lineage to be revealed.
Sakura herself is just fine (outside of obvious lack of focus and screentime) it's just the over the top shippers that get out of hand with anything she does with anyone. Sometimes I feel like they care more for the shipping then they do the actual story and plot.
Wait, why does Madara need another Rinnegan anyways? Aren't multiple rinnegan only useful if they are in multiple bodies, a la Pein?
Or for that matter, why someone like Madara who has "figured out" how advance his sharingan to a rinnegan, couldn't just take sasuke's eye and make it one.
And doesn't Madara's plan require him to have both Rinnegan to active the Infinite Tsukuyomi?
I don't think he needs both. I recall Obito attempting the Infinite Tsukuyomi even though he only had one Rinnegan. He's probably just going to get it out of the sentimental value it holds to him.
Guys, there is a shipping thread here lol http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...ing-Discussion
Anyways, I feel like this is the best chapter we've seen in a while. Karin was pretty awesome in this chapter, and I loved the desperation behind Sakura manually pumping Naruto's heart with her hand. Is it really possible that the guy standing next to Sasuke is Kabuto? Hmm..
Parena or Serecham both equal Serena+Pancham!
I wonder does this mean that Kushina had the same sensing ability as Karin, if they have the same special ability? Not much to say about Naruto and Sakura, except wondering why Gaara went to get Sakura went it seems like it would have been simpler to go straight to Minato. I mean, last we saw, the whole ending with Obito happen pretty close to where the Bijuus were pulled out. I can't imagine they moved so far that Sakura and gang was closer. Also, it's nice to see that we're gonna see the results of Izanami and probably the reformed Kabuto.
As for the second part, because "figuring it out" was basically awakening them unknowingly when he was about to die. Madara seemingly spent decades without gaining the Rinnegan despite having all the right pieces, so it's clearly not any easy trick or something he could do again.
A soul that cannot be saved drifts and disappears,
In the instant it vanishes, it shines faintly,
Now, it creates a night with a full moon.
I'm starting to get back into the manga again. It's surprisingly exciting considering these tow characters definitely won't die.
Sakura cutting into Naruto and holding his heart to keep it beating is one of the most wtf moments of the manga. I give props to her. If it was before this arc, she would standby uselessly and cry. Now she's going to insane lengths. It feels genuinely emotional, even contrasting against Rin and Obito. It's not that there's love here, but they're two friends who have been through so much sh*t together and finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Anyway, I imagine Madara will probably arrive first and try to stop the Kurama swap.
Karin also suddenly becoming less useless was shocking. Seriously, an army couldn't stop Buddha and Spiral, but Karin is the one that does. But now she's more pathetic cause she's definitely doing this over her love for her murderous crush. The guy at the end is definitely Kabuto too, since he hasn't been redeemed yet, and going back to healer Kabuto over Kabutomaru is what Sasuke wanted, so he'll get healed.
Best Sakura scene in ages.
Now that she's saving Naruto, I do wonder if she will have a hand in helping Sasuke too. She made a promise to herself way back when to protect the both of them, and now is a good time for her to play that role. Would wrap up her character too, although her relationship with Sasuke is still...Yeah...
