Chapter is out, Sasuke doesn't understand Itachi, Itachi says it is not up to him to decide. Kages are fighting with Edo-madara after I while they do a super combo and it seems like they defeated him until, Madara goes in his perfect Susano'o
[Insert decent sig here]
Spoiler:- My latest challenge:
I think we won't get to see the perfect Susanoo doing his work. Wasn't Itachi already ending the Edo Tensei? Maybe at the very last moment before the Kage die, it disappears.
So we're getting more of the Gokage versus Madara fight; I knew Kishi would beat around the bush some more. I'm honestly getting tired of this fight since every time the Gokage make progress, Madara reveals some new technique. This time he revealed Susanoo's perfect form. I can't help but feel that this week's chapter was a waste of time.
The chapter was good up until the reveal of Perfect Susanoo. I dunno, it was decent overall thanks to the action but Madara's Susanoo kinda ruined the effect.
Itachi's comment to Sasuke makes me a little worried we aren't gonna be told his side of the Uchiha massacre if he intends for Naruto to handle things. And while not exactly new, we once again see a genjutsu being used on top of another. Finally return to Madara vs the Gokage. Disappointed that one of the Kages haven't died yet and that we're still getting sappy speeches. But at least Madara is finally getting serious an I have to say the appearance of his prefect Susanoo looks great, better then any other Susanoo version to me. Pretty good chapter.
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.
- Kages! Yessssssssss.
- Really? You can forgive your brother, who killed your entire family, but you can't forgive the death threat led by
a villagethree people?
- LOL at Itachi hinting at the crow.
- Yessssssssss, finally.
- When did Susanoo get the ability to have legs and be complete mobile armour?
- Haha, yes Tsunade! She has two swords stuck in her but she's still kicking it.
- God, that thing is huge. Shadow of the Susanoo.
Good chapter. Back to the most enjoyable fight so far. It made the last few weeks look sterile. I'm glad the Kages were finally able to accomplish something, but the
ColossiSusanoo looks unbeatable (but Edo Tensei may be released by then.)
So I guess Itachi will die when he releases the Edo Tensei. I had hoped that he would survive, but oh well. I'm also a little mad that after the whole battle, Sasuke still hates Konoha. I thought Itachi would help change Sasuke's perception of the village, but he's still obsessed with revenge. What was the point of them fighting as a team?
^Yeah, that's about all we should expect from this team-up.
Moreso than Tobi's moonfaced plan or Kabuto's identity crisis, this series is about Naruto and Sasuke's relationship. The final battle between the two can be nothing but no holds barred, and that can't happen if Sasuke's antagonism is resolved beforehand. In order for their fight to be legitimate and definitive, it has to be motivated by everything that has happened to each of them during the story, and that includes Sasuke's hatred for the Leaf and Naruto for defending it. If Sasuke walks into that final battle not earnestly wanting to destroy Naruto and everything he stands for, then the fight isn't going to push either of them to their limits. Plus Itachi's said more than once that he isn't going to change Sasuke, Naruto is. Naruto can't change Sasuke if somebody else already did it.
As for the Kages and Madara... whew. There's a lot going on there. It's all very good and exciting, and the Kages have a lot to be proud of, but I sure wish it wasn't so obvious that Madara isn't even breaking a sweat. These five people are supposed to be the most powerful ninja of their respective villages, the leaders of the free ninja world. And they're all working together against one guy! Granted, that guy is Madara so the Kages should have to struggle and still fare no better than non-kage ninjas, but it just looks like all they're doing is getting royally wiped by this lone zombie. Tsunade and Oonoki keep coming up again and again with this crazy inhuman power to just barely scrape past the last thing Madara put against them, but every time they do, Madara's like, "My grandma could do that without getting out of her weelchair YAWN." I don't know if the Kages are "destined" to lose this fight, but I'm not getting much of an impression that they're living up to their titles, despite Madara's (probably condescending) acknowledgement.
Wise men at their end know dark is right.
I like how before Itachi goes Sasuke made it perfectly clear he still hates Konoha. Was he telling Itachi or the readers? I agree with The 4th Kira, what was the point of Itachi and Sasuke even teaming up if Sasuke's view on Konoha hasn't changed even a little? As far as troll Madara goes, it was actually kind of sad for me to see that defeated look on Gaara and Mei's faces before Oonoki gave his little speech. Seeing Raikage get taken down by Sharingan was also tough to see. You try to fight it as you might but the Sharingan and all it's hax powers is just to much. Good chapter though. Glad the focus shifted.

Pokemon Left version and Pokemon Right version. They are coming soon.
Despite all the adversities, it would be fitting if the Kages would be able to defeat Madara. Stopping the Edo Tensei could just be a final resort and coincide with the end of the battle. That would prove their combined strengths.
Still I'd like if at least Tsunade or Oonoki died heroically in their struggle. Would make the fight more believable.
I get the feeling that Kishi has been wanting to kill Onoki for a while now, but has changed his mind at the last minute. Onoki has been in tons of near-death situations, but he always survives. It's annoying. I agree with those who want to see Zetsu, though. I'm sure his next appearance will be his last, but at least the flashback before his death will give us more information about his past.
Eh...what can I say, the recent chapters have been decent at best...gotta wonder what's going on with Naruto and Tobi...bet they've just standing there this whole time
