Hello again, and welcome back. With shonen being on break last week, we had to wait 2 weeks to see what would come out of Kakashi and Obito’s battle, and also the 10 tails of course.
I am not sure exactly what the ten tails did with the storms, if he tried to kill the alliance with lightning or ferocious winds, either way it did not work as Naruto was there to protect them. And it seems that Naruto had control over the chakra that he gave to the shinobi alliance, I had thought that he had no control over it at all. Another thing confirmed is that Shikaku died for nothing. He died smiling, believing (and leading us to believe) that he had conjured up the ultimate plan to defeat the jubbi, now it is clear that he only succeeded in prolonging their deaths and suffering. While CESC might be right about Shikaku sacrificing himself for now, I (Jdogg) on the other hand disagree because we still have not seen that plan come into play. It is either Kishi already forgot about it or he is still waiting to reveal the fruit of this plan to take down the Jubbi.
It is interesting to note that the ten tails is more of a humanoid than an animal, all the other tailed beasts have been animals, but the jubbi stands on two legs and has the physique of a man, it can even form hand signs. This can lead to some very interesting outcomes, for starters, if the jubbi can form hand signs it means it can also think; if it can think, then surely it will seek to rule the world with its limitless power (and the fact that the SoSP is no longer here), there will be nothing stopping it.
That brings me to my next point, does the jubbi see Naruto as the SoSP? It certainly seemed that way, it is definitely Kishi foreshadowing something to come, I believe Naruto will get to the level of the SoSP by the end of the Manga, the only way he will defeat this beast that just keeps getting stronger. What also is interesting is that the Jubbi react to Naruto how Kurama reacts to Madara. When Kurama ever mentions or hears the name Madara he gets angry in fact it is one of the reasons he is working with Naruto so he wont be manipulated by Madara or the Jubbi. Nonetheless, cesc and I both agree that the Jubbi defiantly sees Naruto as a threat.
Naruto runs out of gas and can no longer protect himself or the alliance, and just as Madara is preparing to deal the final blow, the alliance come to his aid, they plan to protect him as he has been protecting them. So after the first day of the “war” 40k remained in the alliance, even if half of those remaining died on the second day, there should still be thousands left yet I only see a handful around. Where will this leave the shinobi world when all of this is over? Is the idea of ninjas going to be scrapped? I hope not, Naruto would be boring without ninjas.
I don’t know what to make of Obito now, according to him Rin and Kashi were not the reason he turned evil, it was the whole system of shinobi that truly broke his hope in humanity. For me, Obito would have been better off sticking with the story that he is evil because his best friend let the love of his life die. He claims Rin’s death had nothing to do with it, but in fact it had everything to do it. Before Rin died, Obito had no issues with the system, then the moment Rin dies he realizes there is something wrong; does that mean she is the first shinobi to have ever lost her life protecting peace? I believe Kishi is trying to make Obito seem like less of a bitch, but to me he is just the same. Both his reasons are equally as pathetic, because in truth they are the same. I was expecting something new and exciting when Obito said Kakashi should stop flattering himself if he believed he cause Obito’s break down, but instead I was left disappointed by the “real” cause Obito gives. Smh Kishi, smh!
Kakashi has been disappointing though, failing to “pull the trigger” on multiple occasions, but I don’t really blame him too much. That being said, I am annoyed by it, and it seems Obito is as well as he purposely walks right into Raikiri. First I thought Obito used Kamui to teleport that area to the real world, then Kakashi removed his hand and revealed the giant gaping hole. My next thought after that, and especially after Obito’s words, was that Obito has replaced his entire body with zetsu, and not just the right side. Another possible explaining, and this could be more likely, is that Obito used a genjutsu. I am not sure, let me know what you guys think.
We have not been discussing the chapters much at all in the comments lately, perhaps they have been boring, or more likely my reviews have been boring. If it is the latter then please I am all ears, any tips on how to make my reviews more interesting would be very welcomed. And if it was the former, then discuss some theories, or post your opinions. I’d hate to see this page die, the only way to keep it alive is by active participation. I’ll see you guys in the comments. As for my (Jdogg) last comments on the latest chapter, I found it a refreshing chapters while we will still bit@# and moan about how we still have not seen the four hokages make their epic entrance. Because lets be honest the most exciting thing that we are waiting for right now is just that. As for me I think that seeing Naruto finally feeling the pressure and stress of being the savor of everyone just elevates his character higher.
I know this is not Naruto related, but it is just an epic picture.
