Naruto 554 – Raikage, formerly known as Chuck Norris.

Right! The boss is away so the little british minion is going to fill in, pip-pip tallyho etc.


This chapter was relatively slow but we get a few revelations into the ultimate Raikage and his practically invincible defensive jutsu. Naruto has stormed in to try and save everyone (again) and as a wind user he arrogantly believes he can 1 shot roflstomp the Raikage. Look Naruto, you’re good and you’re getting better but you are still a kid ultimately, these are the bodies and techniques of the strongest ninja in history, personally I believe he still has a huge amount of growing up to do, anyway, the technique Naruto uses seems to link the 9 tails chakra within a rasenshuriken giving him complete control even after firing, it is insanely cool and reminiscent of when Naruto hid within the shadow of a shuriken really early on in the series.


Naruto’s technique is strong and he does give it his best attempt to integrate some form of tactical awareness, his logic is sound but still slightly childish, he is beginning to think a step ahead of his opponent but when facing a kage you need to be 6 steps ahead and his rebound attack also fails before the Raikage’s incredible speed. this is when naruto steps up a gear, and oh my is it clever, Temari suggests a diversion, which naruto has already done, using the time the Raikage had to divert his attention away from naruto to dodge, he has got incredibly close and fired up another rasenshuriken which he hits with at melee range. ouch, his face.


A glimmer of hope is shed as the sealing ninja do their thing as the Raikage lies on the ground, but the third is far too hardcore and roundhouse kicks any seals off him, leaving him unscathed, unhappy and really really pissed at Naruto. Captain Obvious continues to point out it seems as if he is being controlled or something, as of they are expecting him to just come in and kick ass for no reason.


Now the ChuckNorrisKage prepares his counter attack, a giant roundhouse kick to the collective faces of every ninja fighting him. He lifts his hand in pimpslap fashion and ninjas start screaming for a wall to be put up, at this point I genuinely am interested to see what has that large force so scared, the fear is blindingly obvious, I imagine the 3rd was a huge asset as Raikage, he puts others to shame. I want Gaara to be this cool and hardcore! A huge barrier is erected (hehe erected) and Naruto is literally and quite comically pulled away from certain death.


From what I can figure out the 3rd Raikage’s ultimate jutsu consists of him focusing huge amounts of chakra into his fingertips, to create almost blades of pure chakra that can pierce through it seems any barrier, he rips through the lava style and earth style users walls within the second and groups are decimated just for being idiots and thinking they can take him down. It’s a shame, ninja in this war are coming across as nothing but cannon fodder until the characters we know and love show up and slap some sense into someone.

Now the interesting text and theory stuff you guys love and i’m useless at, the Raikage is the only ninja capable of standing off against a bijuu, and i see this personally as highly believable, he has withstood a huge amount of damage, without taking a single scratch but what I am interested in is how his finger jutsu would stand up against Sasuke or Kakashi’s chidori, the techniques are incredibly similar and his power is obviously huge, but with that much chakra being poured into his defenses, what I mean is, how big can one mans reserves be?


The 3rd’s past is scraped upon as the story of how he single handedly saved his town from the onslaught of the 8 tails, fighting the 8 tails alone while everyone escaped and escaping with only a scar. Holy crap, how can one man stand and fight a really really angry 8 tails and JUST get 1 scar? this is madness! but this triggers naruto’s brain to go from 0-60 instantly, there is only 1 technique he can think of with more power than his rasenshuriken, 1 technique that happens to be used by the 8 tails host. The Bijuu ball, the fruits of naruto’s training, but will he succeed where all others have failed? Let’s hope so.


Anyway guys, I have been Sothe, you have been Shannaro, sorry for the unprofessionalism but Bob is working this week and I just want a place for you to discuss, if he is not here next week again it may well be me doing the chapter. Enjoy, discuss and any constructive feedback, let me know below.


Sothe, out.
