I couldn’t find a crazy/funny face within the manga to start this post off with, so here’s Naruto pickup lines! (Click to see the full image and also to check out the artist’s deviantART website!)
Awww yeahhh ;D….Do not try these at home….
We return from the very Obito+Kakashi centered chapter from last week. To recap, last week had genjutsu, lots of flashback-present parallels, Kakashi’s resolve to protect Naruto, we learned a new way of beginning/ending a spar from Minato, Kakashi gets stabbed in the side while Obito gets stabbed in the gut, Madara tries to make Obito use Rinnegan but Obito seems to rebel.
We return to this week’s chapter with Obito struggling under Madara’s hold. Madara claims that the day for Obito to return the “favor” he did for Obito (saving his life?) has finally come.
Meanwhile, Hashirama notices that the Ten-Tails is being manipulated by Madara (through Obito) and also senses that Madara is using The Forbidden Jutsu of the Six Paths – The Samsara of Heavenly Life!!!!
Hashirama then tells Naruto and Sasuke to stop Madara from finishing his jutsu – to prevent him from reviving completely.
Notice that Sakura does not even feature in this chapter LOL
However, as Naruto and Sasuke leap forward on Gamakichi and Aoda respectively, Naruto screams at Sasuke but pauses. Upon seeing this, Minato seems to finally have come to a revolution about something, whether its Sasuke or someone else on the battlefield.
As this happens, Hashirama and Toshirama both create clones, though Toshirama comments on how few clones he is capable of creating at the moment.
Then a shot of either Naruto or Minato (probably Minato, but I can never be sure) doing a hand seal appears.
And Hashirama sends his three of his six clones after Madara, who comments on Hashirama’s battle tactic due to the possibility that they might not save Obito in time. Obito, meanwhile, is becoming something similar to the original half-black, half-white Zetsu but much scarier :[.
We get a peek into Obito’s mind. We see Kakashi and Rin (with a closeup on his love, Rin) and then we pan out to include Minato. Then Rin and Kakshi turn their backs on Obito and walk away from him. Obito looks heartbroken, of course.
Obito is the “Naruto” of Team Minato….
We now go to Sasuke who dismisses Aoda who has brought him close to Obito and activates Susanoo. However, Madara forces three rods out of Obito’s body (Rinnegan & Pein body bars!) to counterstrike the arrow Sasuke’s Susanoo fires. As this occurs, Hashirama’s other three clones, Tobirama’s two clones, Naruto and Gamakichi are racing to reach Obito as well.
We go back to Obito, whose mind is still with young Rin and Minato. Obito-mind Minato asks a rhetorical question of Obito’s love for Rin. He then tells Obito that they will become Hokage, while present Minato (the raised from the dead one) slices Obito.
During this brief fight, Minato gets a flashback to when he fought the masked man who attacked Konoha when Kushina was giving birth to Naruto. He recognizes somehow that the masked man was Obito. Naruto and Sasuke race to Minato and Obito.
Meanwhile, Hashirama’s clones confront Madara, who seems to admit defeat despite a grin on his face.
Tobirama then notices that Minato used this God Body Flicker Technique to reach Obito. Then Minato laments over Obito’s apparent death and then Sasuke arrives first, saying that they just need to seal Madara and the war will be over. Then suddenly, Obito’s “corpse” asks if they think that will be enough to end the war.
Then the Ten-Tails does something funny (I can’t particularly decipher what the movements are) and seem to capture Minato and Sasuke. Then we see those two with Naruto and the three realize that Obito’s intent all along was for Madara’s connection to his body to be stopped so he could no longer manipulate Obito. This was so Obito could become the Ten-Tails jinchuuriki all along. DUN-DUN-DUUUNNNNN!!!!!!!!
I foresee that in 20 chapters, it will become the Obito Redemption Arc?? LOL I kid…kind of.
Honestly, I don’t have much to say about this chapter from my viewpoint other than the fact that I have no idea what was going on between Madara and Obito and the “manipulation?” I also have no idea how the Ten-Tails was absorbed by Obito or vice versa and how he became the Jinchuuriki??? NO IDEA MY BRAIN HURTS.
This may also be due to extreme bias because I am simply waiting for the Hashirama+Madara and Obito+Kakashi love-hate relationships to come to a conclusion.
I personally find the younger kids more interesting to talk about than the older men. (Possibly because they’re easier to relate to?)
