Sorry this post was quite a bit late because a lot was going on this week for me. Anywho!
Let’s start off with a funny pic of Orochimaru doing the shake-n-bake with his neck and head LOLOLOL
So, for a SUMMARY of the chapter:
We pick up where we left off at Orochimaru talking to Tsunade. We see Katsuyu and mini Katsuyus.
Orochimaru also has Suigetsu and Karin in tow. Suigetsu is obsessed with putting salt on the slugs while Karin is still obsessed with Sasuke.
Katsuyu almost smothers Orochimaru in her acid spit, but he informs her that he only wants to heal Tsunade, which Katsuyu is having trouble doing (aka re-attaching her bisected parts…). And after a sad little cough of impending death from Tsunade’s halved body, Katsuyu relents.
We also hear comments and see glimpses of Tsunade’s true age face – however, as always, Kishi keeps the good stuff away from us and we don’t actually get a full face shot – just a couple of forehead and mouth wrinkles…
Orochimaru orders Suigetsu to reattach her body halves and tells Karin to let Tsunade bite her (gross……) and Tsunade is now right as rain again – once again confirming in the Kishi-world that no one can die…..(even though people normally die of blood loss and shock right away after being cut in half…)
When properly conscious, Tsunade questions Orochimaru’s motives and intents. Orochimaru states that he is not the good guy because he wants to, but he wants to help the apparent-good-guy (Sasuke) to see how the apparent-good-guy falls beyond redemption by his “new wind”…. That’ll be the main gist of it >>;;;;;
Tsunade comments on how he’s changed and they have some banter about their own Sannin past and Jiraiya. This proves, that even if one person goes bad – teammates keep their bonds for years after. (TAKE THAT SASOOKEH!!!!)
Then after some more banter, Orochi-Suigets-Karin head towards the Ten-Tails battlefield while Katsuyu fills Tsunade in with all the battle progress and details. Tsunade and Katsuyu then continue to heal the rest of the Kages.
We then head back to the Ten-Tails battlefield, where we finally learn why Sasuke was being all friggin creepy and sketch. He wants the Ten-Tails to be completely be destroyed – with all the jinchuuriki&bijuu still inside. However, this doesn’t fly by Naruto very well, who was intending to free all his new bijuu and jinchuuriki friends. However, Sasuke being the spoiled brat he is, wants everything to go his way. Thankfully or unthankfully?, the Ten-Tails removes the body parts that are affected with his black fire, to which Sasuke almost has a temper tantrum.
” Y U DO DIS SASEKEH!!!??????????? </3 “
Sai then tries to have a conversation with his former teammate who really no longer cares about him LOLOL
He tells her that because he is an impartial person (as if!!! MR. I’M-GOING-TO-KILL-SASEKEH!!! =.=;;;) , that he believes none of them can trust his rival (essentially, thats what they are haha). She gives him a really fake smile while lying that because Sasuke came back for them, she’s happy and that she trusts him.
HAHA Oh Sai, could you be anymore obvious of how jealous you are that Sasuke came back and completely overshadowed you?
We go to the Kage – now all fully revived and pumped for moar action – who are all going to the battlescene where all our heroes are. This is also a strange full forward shot of Tsunade’s butt………thanks Kishi?
And our very last shot is a epic scene of Kakashi and Obito going at it with their kunai. (lololol out of context, that would sound very wrong hahahahahahaha 😄 ) Anyways, this shot is definitely telling us where the next chapter will be heading towards. Let’s see if Obito finally redeems himself or keeps giving Kakashi more angst and strife.
” Y U NO LUV ME NO MOAR!!!?????”
Now for a REVIEW of the Chapter:
I’ll be mostly talking about people in pairs (not shipping) but just to make things go faster as I analyze their importance and role, and even their need to be eliminated completely from the story.
1. Orochimaru and Sasuke
No review for this chapter could be considered decent without talking about a certain 2 people – namely Orochimaru and Sasuke…even though they’ve been talked about wayyy too much already >>;;;;
I don’t know about any one else, but I was very happy when Orochimaru died. The pedophile of the series was finally gone and could no longer send shivers of creepiness down my spine. And Sasuke seemed beyond redemption and nowhere near as amazing as Itachi, THUS I was banking on the hope that maybe they’d have to execute Sasuke later? teehee
On top of all that, Sasuke killed Orochimaru and everything is just peachy keen when he resurrects Orochi? And what happened with Itachi sealing Orochimaru away from Sasuke and yet he still comes back? Its a big fat insult to Itachi, honestly.
As thankful as I am that Orochimaru saved Tsunade….I just want him to be gone from the entire series for once. Or just have him switch places with Jirayia plz.
As for Sasuke……I’m waiting until he gets his long deserved punishment for being the asshole he is 😡
KISHI!!!!!!!!!!!! Y U KILL ITACHI AND NEJI??????!!!!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
2. Sai and Sakura
This poor guy can never win. And I happen to think that he’s one of the characters that has so much potential to becomes a great asset to the main storyline, but Kishi is making him into such a sad forever-alone character…almost breaks my heart =.=
And Sakura’s absolute stubbornness to NOT SEE the amazingness in other guys other than Sasuke is just painful.
How she treats Sai is just awful. I wish Kishi would give Sai more character development and spotlight time.
And I’m pretty sure everyone knows that he is completely right about Sasuke in this chapter….Let’s see how painfully slow and brutal this unfolds. You all know that if I were allowed in the Naruverse….Sasuke would have died long ago. Like an actual death with no way to resurrect his soul with the Edo technique.
” Y U SUCH A BETCH SAKOORAH???? “
3. Suigetsu and Karin
When it comes to Suigetsu and Karin, I have one major thing to ask – What the hell is their overall usefulness to the plot? I never liked them as characters since their inception and introduction into the story.
– They are not very funny at all – thus they are USELESS as comic relief
– Karin is the absolute worst combination of Sakura and Ino that could ever have existed. And that haircut???
– Suigetsu is the never-will-be-as-awesome-as-Kisame-or-Zabuza watery swordsmen that will continue to be a painful reminder of two ninja swordsmen who were badass and died, taking away an interesting arc to the story.
4. Katsuyu the Mysterious Time Warping Duplicating Slug
I just put this in because I wanted to address the whole large-version of Katsuyu being in 2 places at once? So her full form is both with Sakura and Tsunade? I was under the impression that summons could only be in one place at a time?
And when Sakura summoned her, didn’t she take away some of Katsuyu’s concentration and chakra for healing Tsunade?
I guess the simplest explanation would be that she can just be continously cloned and summoned (since she can split herself into smaller slugs almost infinitely) and these clones are all on the same brain wave where all information is shared as it happens between the clones.
Anyone else have any theories?
See you all next week!
