Ha! I loved this chapter!!!
Man it's good to know Kishimoto can still surprise you (sage technique explanation). I don't think it was possible to see that explanation coming. So cool! Loved the Yoda moment.
Seeing as he has to "die", whatever that means, do you think they'll have to check his seal to make sure kyuubi stays put? That we might learn more about it? I think it might happen if he's dying in more of a literal sense than a metaphorical one.
And is anyone else wishing that we see the toads using toad stools as stools?
All i know is that things are going to get hectic once Pein comes. And you know what, when they figure out Naruto isn't there, i bet you anything someone important of Naruto's is going to die. And that person is going to motivate naruto into being stronger then ever. Especially since Naruto wasn't there to stop it and he would take the deaths his responsible.
It could be common to "die" in the narutoverse, instead of a plot point being used over and over. it's like luke having to unlearn, what he had already learned.
My thoughts reading on this chapter:
1.Does anyone else get the feeling that Kishi has started rushing the plot forward ever since the Sasuke arc completed? Madara took 6 chapters to tell his story, but now Naruto says his farewell, gets taken to Toad Mountain and gets an introduction to the Sage Arts all in one chapter. Not complaining, but the pace really seemed to have picked up.
2.I loled at the panel with Pein and Konan. He's been taking forever to drag his ass out of the Rain village. What was the point of adding yet another token panel of him telling Konan to get ready? Hopefully the next chapter won't have another useless panel of him walking.
3.Likewise with the last page. The Sasuke introduction could have waited another chapter. It looked like Kishi was just padding out his chapter with random panels of pein and Sasuke to cover 17 pages.
I'M NO HERO, BELIEVE IT!
not at all, this chapter was refreshing and lets hope Kishimoto dont disappoint us with depressing results or any hermit mode. This was a good chapter because the plot seem to be moving again and another big even is yet aobut to happen. And no i dont think the plot is being rushed because like i said, unlike bleach, Kishimoto has left himself a lot of room to continue(after the Akatsuki) if he pleases so. Its amazing, aint it? Kishi's weakness(neglecting his main character) is what makes Naruto an overall good manga.

i liked this chapter. naruto understanding it through food was lulz. but in all honesty i didnt think it was that hard to understand so why was the explanation so dragged out? was it to clearify it to readers who would speculate it if it wasnt explained so good or was naruto really being that dull? or was it just to add to the story
sasuke is still being a jerk -_-
i mean its pretty selfish he is going to allow someone to die by having the demon removed just for his own benefit
and he is my favourite character, though i am slowly becoming angry at him
and people should just face the fact that sasuke is in the manga and he will be written about -_-
i mean u should be thankful he was only in one panel.
fair enough he has been shown a lot lately but shouldnt u be used to that by now?
and right now he is crucial to the plot with all the invasion plans and eight-tailed beast happenings. i mean think of it this way: the faster kishi finishes writing about sasuke the faster he can right about naruto or else anything about sasuke will only be postponed til later and even then people will still complain..

I agree with you.

I couldn't imagine what would be a completed fuuton rasengan. And now, we are given another way to increase power...
I can't wait to see how Kishi will develop his main character through that training!
With the scroll, it's probably the frog summoning scroll with the name of naruto, jiraya and the fourth, is someone able to read it?
