@Heartlessfang: I think by copying chakra, it just copies the feel/texture/look of the chakra but not the actual magnitude or strength.
I smell Karin falling for Naruto :D
soo the chewtoygirl watshername will be on konoha's side?? i wonder what sai gonna say to that... and please don't tell me that she gonna see sasuke in him later on.
i foresee another training arc... another breather... and another small story (something to do with root having no leader i guess) coming out
Kisame being alive is acceptable because the reason he's alive is acceptable. Zetsu switched with him during the fight, no problems with that.
Wel I am amused at kisame being alive most of all because it sort of mimics the way Bee himself pulled a switch on Sasuke to go on vacation. Now Kisame gets a little vacation switching samehada as Bee got switching with hachibi's tentacle.
Someone said it: Being able to copy isn't the same as the real thing.
It also dawns on me that Naruto's copy jutsu can be so hacked that all the copies are the same, and the last one will automatically be the real one (or until Naruto decides it). Well, that's how it seems at least. Instead of being plot-jutsu. Kishi might as well make it explitcit.
All this time, I was waiting for Kisame to come back, with no real hope of course. The reason is that all Akatsuki members died in huge battles. Kisame's wasn't an all out fight. The moment his head went off, I thought "he'll be back".
I think Kabuto might be more badass than Oro. Kabuto is a genius, now he is also a demon.
Oh that chapter turned out quite OK. Kisame's return didn't seem as unplanned as it did in the spoiler, I think they cleared it up quite nicely. Though I wondered how Samehada doesn't notice that Kisame's actually in it...or did I not read that right?
Finally Kabuto's back and he's got quite a cool new look. Why can't some of the other characters get nice new looks too? Naruto would look pretty awesome in some patterned cloak, maybe something from Minato? Rather than the raincoat-like hoodie he wears mostly. Kabuto was already strong and now he's mastered Orochimaru's powers I'm expecting him to be pretty powerful. Just praying hard for a Kabuto-Kakashi fight, which could be darned good because Kakashi's improved over the years as well, and they were both introduced as being on the same level anyway.
Poor Kakashi. He really needs a great battle and a nice victory to look really really cool again. And I mean Part 1 kind of cool.
Well since Naruto's found Sasuke and Sasuke's left I'm expecting some sort of training arc, maybe after they resolve the whole Hokage thing...Konoha must look like crap, they just got their new Hokage killed by a missing-nin from their village, right after their previous Hokage went into a coma protecting the village from an Akatsuki member who flattened it anyway. Hopefully Kakashi does better.
I love how Madra just fans off Kakashi's move, that won't work on me save your stamina. LMAO. I don't think I like the scales on Kabuto's face, I do like his new hair style now though. Looks like Naruto might have a new fan now.
Well maybe the dimension Kakashi opens is the same dimension Madara goes to which is why Deidara was able to get his arm back
