Hello again Narutards, hope you are all having a good week. And for all my fellow Boston residents, I hope you are recovering from the tragedy well. Moving on, I was disappointed we did not get a chapter last week, but I was even more disappointed to see we only got one this week. I thought “double issue” meant 2 chapters, but obviously that isn’t the case. “Double Issue” means that the recent weeks issue or chapter will count for this week and the fallowing week, hence double issue. So basically we get one chapter for two weeks.
CALM BEFORE THE STORM
You can hardly call the current events “calm” but knowing what’s ahead, this all seems boring and filler-ish. Everyone has been looking forward to seeing the four Kages make their entrance into the battlefield, and we all thought we would get to see that this week, especially since we were made to wait 2 weeks for this. So understandably, a lot of you may have been disappointed with this chapter, at least I was. That being said, this was a necessary chapter; we have not been at the battlefield for months now and it was important refresh our memories on what is going on. Now did Kishi need to take an entire chapter (after making us wait 2 weeks) to remind us that Naruto is wasting massive amounts of chakra to save a bunch of fodder ninja? NO! While I do agree with CESC, I think that this chapter did have its purpose. For instance it shows that what Naruto is doing is causing a huge strain on him. Now did Kishi need to use the whole chapter, NO. But it does play its part in showing how difficult it is what Naruto is doing.
Now, if we forget all the epicness we witnessed in Hashirama’s flashback, this chapter was actually epic. I say this because the 10-tails is cutting loose, Sakura gets a panel, and we see two massive Uchiha fire balls.
WHAT IS NARUTO DOING?
Kishi is not doing Shikaku any justice at all. The guy died to devise the ultimate plan, yet all we’ve seen is Naruto desperately try to delay everyone’s inevitable death. Was this Shikaku’s plan, protect everyone and hope the bad guys give up? If it is then horrible plan to die for mate. The alliance has been utterly useless, it has caused more harm than good this entire war. The only thing they have contributed was saving Naruto and Bee from the beast bomb way back when they first showed up. They should all just go home now because they are just going to get even more useless when the Kages show up.
I recall as recently as when Tobi and Naruto first engaged in combat, Tobi was a scary mother-f*cker! One touch from him and you were history, I feared for Naruto when they fought, and the suspense we felt whenever Tobi got close to touching Naruto was awesome. But then he became Obito, and all that made me fear him disappeared with his mask. Now being teleported doesn’t carry the same death sentence it not so long did. If he zaps someone I think meh Kakashi can get em back. He is not the same character anymore; and when he does come back with Kakashi, he will be a changed man once again. He will be defeated by Kakashi in there, if not physically, then with words. I am a 100% with CESC on this. When Obito was first introduced, I put all my effort to try to make people see how Obito went from the most potential evilistic villain to pure worthless as a villain.
Next week we’ll probably be in the other dimension with Obito and Kakashi, and they’ll come out just in time to welcome the Kages. I look forward to seeing Obito’s reaction to Minato, hope it’ll be as good as Madara’s “rape-face” when he realizes his best bud is back (I thought he would’ve been scared shitless, but he seems as excited as a rapist at a . . . where would a rapist get that excited? Help me)! SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!
