    The whole fight is pointless.

    Naruto and Sasuke's conversation is just a rehash of VoTE with a couple extra lines about Itachi and the Uchiha clan thrown in.

    The jutsus they choose to match up are also a rehash of VoTE, trying to relive their genin days and forgetting everything they've learnt since then(Though in Naruto's case there isn't much).

    And their rivalry is as inconclusive as ever. Naruto's 'answer' is still the same as at VoTE. So much for character development.

    I was going to try and stay out of this conversation cause I am curious about next week, but here is something that crossed my mind when reading over this chapter. There was a time when Naruto was doing wind chakra training and Yamato was explaining to him each natures strengths and weaknesses.

    Do you all recall when Naruto made a statement that his wind manipulation will make Sasuke stronger. Well that's the theory I'm going with. Naruto is somehow going to show Sasuke that with him by his side he makes him stronger. But who knows

    The spoilers were honestly better. I mean, I liked a few things about this chapter...that panel where Naruto and Sasuke switch jutsus, for instance. Even when he was talking to Sasuke, as repetitive as it was, it felt that Naruto was calmer, no longer fuming and screaming at Sasuke like last time. How's that for character development? I personally like the new more mature Naruto, hyperventilating notwithstanding. And honestly, did anyone actually think Naruto would change his answer? If he had it'd mean what Itachi did for him was pointless, whatever it is.

    That said, the whole Rasengan-Chidori thing is lame. Why on earth would they clash jutsus like that AGAIN? The only reason I can think of is Naruto trying to cause some sort of diversion...but I don't like the copycatting. The dialogue is also pretty much rehashed, which means this chapter was mostly a filler kind of chapter. Not good. And the poison and immunity thing is insignificant. It just makes Sakura look a bit stupid. But if Naruto gets poisoned I will officially be pissed off at Sakura. She may have wanted to kill Sasuke but she's got no will. At least Naruto's got a firm stand.

    Funny enough this is one time I want to see Sasuke spam more MS. I know it's good that he's going blind finally but he seems so watered-down now that he's just using Chidori. Rather like how Naruto seems a bit powered down when not in Sage Mode, though this chapter DID make him look a bit stronger. I think Naruto and Kakashi can hold against Sasuke with his MS. And given that he's most definitely no match for them now I expect he'll use it again soon.

    Most of all though Kakashi really should get in the main battle. Since this is definitely NOT the definitive conclusive ultimate Naruto-Sasuke showdown, there shouldn't be a problem with Kakashi stealing the show this time. And send Sakura away please.

    I don't completely agree here. Litterally speaking, he didn't give his answer yet
    I'm playing with words, sorry.
    It's clear it's a reharsh of VoTE, and it's probably done on purpose. Or is Kishi clearly procrastinating?
    I'll make a conclusion next week, cos' it's difficult to judge from a chapter per week basis. I have to re read some chapters back

    Bland chapter at best since like so many people said, this chapter brought absolutely nothing new to the table.

    That and the fact that Karin gained a brain and saw that Sasuke isn't worth the trouble. You go girl. This is like a huge step for Kishimoto, ironically enough it was the best part about this chapter.

    i think the best thing that can be said for kishi is that he's buying time to come up with naruto's "answer" and live up to fan expectations...
    which, by itself, is sad.

    Iīll let the bitching about the chapter at hand away, cuz it was already done xD

    The main idea - in my opinion at least - is a good one. Change the ninja world. Donīt let hatred consume us. Bla Bla Bla....
    But Kishi canīt just tell the story right without letting Naruto look like shit. I mean, facing Naruto it was OK. But then the Raikage? And now facing Sasuke?
    Kishi should have gone a whole other way. And even if you go for peace, you still have to kill.
    I donīt think thereīs any reasonable way for Kishi to bring Sasuke back alive. Manipulated by Madara would be shit... He pretty much admitted he got high on killing Danzou...

    And what the fuck is wrong with Kishi? Fuckin Naruto mastered Senjutsu but he still canīt do a fuckin one-handed Rasengan??? COME ON....

    As for the poison - the Kyuubi should deal with that, or did have I read too much fanfiction? xD

    I can only hope that it is one of Naruto's clones attacking Sasuke with his chidori and the real Naruto is watching in Sage Mode or has a clone gathering energy while in Sage Mode. Once all the dust clears we see Naruto carrying Sakura away on a clone, Kakashi watching and the real Naruto standing there unscathed waiting to beat up Sasuke. Also I love how they are doing such powerful moves RIGHT in front of Kakashi and Sakura, they should get caught up in the blast. Kakashi would be fine but the bridge will be damaged, Sakura thrown, and Karin thrown.

    I think that what Karin says is pointing out that Sasuke doesn't have enough chakra, that he's pushing it a little too far... So, probably, the one that will pass out this time is him instead of Naruto.

    Right and wrong it's not what separate us and our enemies
    It's our different perspectives and standpoints that
    Separate us.
