Well things are proceeding faster than I predicted. Not only was this chapter good, but for the first time in a long time, I went reading Naruto without complaining on about the “plot-holes” or the ridicules story line. But I have to admit, shortly but surely Kishi is making a comeback, and its with a big bang. Another thing to note is that there was an actual plan in this fight, not just brute force, which has been almost every fight since the war. One thing the Naruto series was so good at, is it’s complex fights. That not only have one guy beating the hell out of the other, but it has plans, schemes and which one is smarter than the other, or who can trick who to win. Either way lets get on with this weeks amazing chapter.
As for those who do not know the Juubi is still incomplete. While it is still revived but into an incomplete form. It was because Obito was hasty and in my opinion to lazy to capture the eight and nine-tails beasts to ultimately complete his collection of tailed-beasts. But since Naruto/Kurama and Bee/Gyuki were given him a hard time, he decided to revive the Juubi in its incomplete form. I think that he did this for two reasons; the first is that the fact he could not capture the eight and nine-tails because of their strengths. The second reason is that (and this is completely my opinion) he is afraid he will not be able to control a fully revived Juubi. For the simple fact that not even the Sage could of fully controlled the Juubi, and what makes Obito any different. Think about it, the Juubi is the most devastating force in all of the history of the Ninja World, not even the Sage could of kept it under control. And Obito knew this so he decided to revive it in its incomplete form, to have a better chance of controlling it, and so far he and Madara are doing a good job of that, but for how long.
If there is one thing that I learned about teamwork, is that it could work for you or against you. This chapter is the perfect example of that saying, because so far the Good Guys (Naruto, Kurama, Bee, Gyuki, Kakashi, and Guy) are doing one hell of a good job in teamwork. They have a solid leader, Kurama, who without the doubt has great leadership skills because of the way he carries himself and sets out his plans. While on the other hand, the Bad Guys (Madara, Obito and the Juubi) are having a disagreement. Obito wants to do one thing while Madara wants another, and we do not know for how long the Juubi can be kept under control. So far teamwork is working great for our heroes, while it is starting to back fire for our villains.
For those who were confused at the end, I will describe what went down. Naruto and Bee sent a barrage of Tail Beast Bombs, but the Juubi countered with its own and it shows the power difference that it was able to completely obliterate the combined Bombs of the eight and nine-tails. But as Naruto was about to shield himself from the Juubi’s Cero/Kamehameha looking Tail Beast Bomb, Bee jumps in front of Naruto to take the hit. As the dust clears we see that nothing is left of Bee but one of the eight tails tentacles. We are left thinking that Bee is no more, but wait whats that in the sky, its Naruto and Kakashi thrown by the other Naruto shrouded by the Nine-tails chakra. Than Kakashi reveals that he was hiding Bee inside of his eye, and releases him with Kumi. So it is revealed that when Bee jumped in front of Naruto to take the hit, as the impact was about to hit Kakashi sucked in Bee in his eye and later on releases him right on top of the Juubi and and Bee is already preparing his own Tail Beast Bomb. I hope that summed it up or at least made sense to you.
- As good as the chapter was there was not much to discuss, but other than to enjoy the epic battle to come.
- The combined teamwork of Naruto and Kurama is outstanding, I have said this before but given time, Kurama will teach Naruto things that will turn him into someone that will be historic in strength.
- Did Kurama say ‘We can stroke each other off after we kicked its ass’? (this is by mangastream translation)
- Finally Kishi is actually making sense and looking at finer details. It is the small detail that makes a story so great.
