Naruto Chapter 633 – The Comeback

Well, a much better chapter than last week or the week before. Finally a chapter that is not focused on just one person, rather it is focused on the surrounding of the war. Even the no named characters got a spot light, and Sai finally shows up, but still no word from Lee, Guy or any of the other Junin or upper classed ninja from the Villages. Nonetheless, it is a chapter that I can honestly say that I enjoyed, while not as revealing as the last two chapters, it has its moments that make it an A graded chapter for me.

The Weight-In

Before I get to Naruto and Sasuke, there’s still Sakura to talk about: I, for one was expecting this chapter to be all about Sakura, sakura_haruno_coloring_by_slavory-d45is5gsince it is her time to shine, and I really want her to be successful as a character. So far she has been over shadowed by more successful secondary female characters, Hinata for instances stood out as possibly one of the best female characters for what she feels and does towards Naruto. Even in this chapter she stood out better than Sakura (until the end) even though she did not have a whole chapter dedicated to her. Nonetheless, this chapter should of been Sakura’s, but there is still more opportunities for her to shine, I just hope she does not disappoint like last week. I think that her character is almost forced and forgotten by us. Sakura in the beginning of Naruto Shippuuden was such a successful character. She was able to go head on with an Akatsuki member and showed such improvement, but ever since then she had no time to shine or be liked by the fans. Her confession of love to Naruto did most of the damage, that even Naruto basically called her stupid for that. But in my opinion I think that Sakura still has time to redeem herself and become such an epic character, and it is the small things that count now, stuff like her summoning that Slug just made her character jump the rank ladder. It is funny because last week there was a discussion on about how Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura did not inherit their mentors techniques specifically the summoning jutsu. But now I think that discussion is over, since they all can summon their respective Mentor’s summoning. Now unto Naruto and Sasuke’s weight-in each other.

Sasuke_betrays_Naruto_by_jonWILEYLadies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, welcome to this weighing of Naruto and Sasuke. In the red corner, we have the most bizarre, obnoxious, loud, inherent of being the “Choosen One” we have Uzimaka Naruto, in the blue corner, we have the most smooth, ladies magnet, emo-I-wanna-kill-everyone, inherent of the “Uchiha Curse” Uchiha Sasuke. I really enjoyed this interaction between Naruto and Sasuke, it brings back memories when they were kids and compete on who is the better one. This is a very good question because it seems that they are evenly match with Naruto slightly taking the lead, for the simple fact that he is the main character. For instance, they both measured their techniques and power, Naruto’s Rasanga is a one hit K.O but has to hit dead on the target. Sasuke’s Amaterasu is the same as the Rasanga, meaning that it has to hit the target. The Rasanga Shurkin on the other hand has a bigger field to cover, while Amaterasu can never be block or avoided once it is on the target. So yes, this discussion can go on forever on who is the superior of the two. For the fans it is all about who you prefer Naruto or Sasuke. Either way sometime in the near future we will see their final showdown commence and when it does it is going to be epic.

  TeamWork

This chapter was all about team work and the evolution of Team 8 and 10. I still feel that Lee and Tenten should of been in this ino_shika_cho_by_igodsrealmi-d3i1yoeline up. It would of been exciting to see Neji fight as well and I am still hurt for the fact that he was killed off for practically no reason at all and felt that he could still be alive. Well I will stop there before I go on a tantrum on why Neji could still be alive. But the teamwork we saw this week was well coordinated by team 8 and 10 and I think that Kishi did a marvelous job this week to show that they are no push overs, they are in some what in league with team 7, but still behind. The teamwork between ino-shika-cho was superbly done. Choji is the muscles, Shikamaru is the brains of operation and Ino is the eyes and ears of the formation. Had they been faced against another Village Junin or higher up Ninja, the ino-shika-cho formation would of given them a run for their money. Unfortunately they are facing the most powerful being, so their power is not as effective.

Welcome_back__Team_8_by_Lee_nusTeam 8 on the other hand had individual performances, and I really liked Shino out of all of the group. It is just that he is so quiet yet so deadly, did you see what he did with a single bug to mini-Juubi, the bug ate it from the inside out. If that don’t scare the noodles out of you than I do not know what will. There is a lot of spin off that can be done for individual characters ike the Hokages, Orochi, Jiraiya (when alive), and etc and I think that there could be a story done just for Shino because as a character he is so interesting and has that dark aroma around him, not Sasuke dark, but more like creepy yet cool dark. Kiba was and still is one of my favorite characters for the simple fact that he has a dog that rips enemy apart with his fangs and a three head dog was epically done. Hinata, you all know what I think about her and believe that she did a splendid job this chapter than Sakura did in the last and she only had a page. Overall, the chapters pacing, dialog and action was well done that this chapter deserves to be called one of the Top Three Manga.

Side Notes:

  • The less Sakura talks and the more she does, the more likable she gets.
  • Funny, how Minato called Naruto a ‘bastard’ when referring to making the Rasanga better.
  • So far it has been a one sided match the Juubi has not shown any comeback. Leaving me to believe that in the next few chapters it is going to go bananas and leave bodies everywhere, it has been doing a good job of that so far.
  • Hinata is still the best.
  • According to the Databook, Sasuke has Naruto beat in stats.

Naruto Shippuuden Chapter 633 – Going Forward

Hallo~ To all who remember me – I’ve returned from the afterlife. To those who do not know who I am – I was here when it all started in 2008 and then died in 2010, and then resurrected last week.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is now the third chapter that features the reunion of Team 7  (here – the work “reunion” means where they are working together – not one a**hole trying to kill the other two). Otherwise, I’m personally loving the new Team 7.

While the chapter begins with Team 7 back to back, right after Sakura is saved (yet again) by Naruto and Sasuke. However, they use this opportunity to assess each other’s growth in skill. Even Minato comments on his son’s improvement as well. The main concern of the chapter is annihilating the Ten Tail mini-clones in order to get at the Ten-Tails – very repetitive and reminiscent of the White Zetsus….

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 8.59.46 PM

Essentially – the rest of the chapter is focused on the growth of the Rookie Nine (Team 7, 8 and 10) – now finally present and working together for the first time since the Chunin Exams. (Though honestly, I like it when the whole gang is there – including Team Gai and the Sand Siblings).

TEAM 8

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 8.50.57 PM

Kiba – Kiba’s skill seems only to have increased by simply adding more heads to Akamaru. To be honest, there’s a lot Kishi could do with Kiba/Akamaru Jutsus, but apparently he’s so busy making everyone come back from the dead that he forgot about Kiba….

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.04.34 PM

Hinata – Filled with love fire from Naruto and the memory of her recently deceased genius cousin – Hinata is now apparently invincible due to all this love power…..

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.05.31 PM

Shino – This guy would win every battle just by grossing out his opponents. I found Ino’s reaction to be a mirror image of mine….

TEAM 10

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.17.08 PM

Team 10 seems to have upgraded their InoShikaCho Formation to become a single sentient being where Ino is the brain and eyes, Shikamaru is the muscle reaction and Chouji is the ball on the chain aka weapon.

The deaths of Shikamaru and Ino’s fathers are now the motivation they need in order to be super bada**es.

TEAM 7 – The New Sannin….and Sai

First, let’s start off with poor Sai….. Poor guy has been kicked into the dust ever since Sasuke’s return from his fall from grace. Looks like Sai’s trying to get back in the limelight or remind everyone that he is a Team 7 member.

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.42.04 PM
“Why I sux so much??”

He basically says logistical stuff about attacking the Ten-Tails, getting an opening, healing the wounded, etc….

And then Sasuke, Naruto and Sakura tell him to STFU!!!!!!!! and subsequently go into Neo-Sannin mode.

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.43.36 PM

All three having mastered and surpassed their previous teachers – I think it is fitting to call them the Neo-Sannins and am expecting Kishi to have everyone in the Naruverse call them that as well.

Sasuke killed and then resurrected his former master – enough said. Naruto perfected Sage Mode when Jirayia couldn’t. Sakura’s chakra control is greater than Tsunade’s. And all three have made pacts with their teachers’ animal summons. Pretty awesome, if you ask me.

Also pretty bias – it seems that unless you’re taught by someone from the Hashirama Senju – Tobirama Senju – Hiruzen Sarutobi – Jirayai – Tsunade – Orochimaru – Minato Namikaze – Kakashi Hatake – Obito Uchiha Super Lineage Line – you don’t get to be awesome in the Naruverse….

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.01.19 PM

TEAM GAI

Rock Lee and TenTen are absent from all of this as they are probably still grieving over the loss of Neji (just as I still am…. *cries in the corner*).

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 8.49.21 PM

I hope you all have a great rest of the week until the next fun-filled, action-packed, Team 7-loving chapter comes out next week!

They’re Out!!!
