    Simply using RASENGAN against a GIANT SQUID is weird. But it's not like he has anything else to use. I hope Kishit realises what a shitty arsenal he has and refrains from imposing any drawbacks on this training arc.

    You know, I'm puzzled about that line. Was he referring to Bee or Dark Naruto?


    You're welcome. Thanks for putting up the confirmed spoilers first, though you should have started a separate thread like flash and I do.
    I took it as Naruto actually having a NON-blond moment and realzing that Moitoi is using him to get the message to be. Or that's what the dark Naruto would think, hence the flash over to his pic.

    As far as the chapter goes, lets just say it's a filler and leave it at that. Moved along pretty fast. Don't ever recall Kishi doing a one chapter flashback. Now we can conclude that Naruto now has the motivation to beat his dark side.

    Bee's cool factor : 10/10
    naruto's cool factor : 1/10
    Watching Hachibi and giant squid battle: priceless...

    *applauds

    I hope Kisame doesn't alert Madara about Naruto controlling the Kyuubi.

    This chapter was pretty good. Even though it's like nothing great happened, I'm sure that the events that unraveled today will impact the future, near or far. Hopefully near, because I think that Bee will thank Naruto by giving him some sort of hint concerning Naruto's dark side. I hope we get to see the fight!

    Also, can you blame Naruto for confusing a squid and an octopus? This is probably the first time he's ever seen one. Although its pretty hard to mistake a squid for a bull/octopus/chakra demon. Still, it wouldn't be Naruto without the gags. The sense of humor is one big thing that Naruto has over Sasuke. Perhaps that's the key to Sasuke's defeat. Jokes? Nah.
    I brainstorm with my multiple personalities.

    Does no one else think the angst about attempted murder is a bit contrived? I mean, you raise children to be assassins, give them weapons training and superpowers, and don't expect mishaps?

    For me, the whole 'I'm so ashamed' thing would be so much more compelling if he were 16+. Kids have poor judgement, lack of emotional control and do the darndest things with ninja weapons. (South Park anyone?)

    And to be one of the many detractors of the 'conquer your hate' spiel, I think it misses the point. Hatred never completely goes away, and even if it did, not in a week. It's about keeping it healthy by controlling it, so as to not give it excessive control over your life. That's where Naruto's at/been at, and makes a reasonable foil to über-hate-man.

    When I saw the Hachibi with 1 of his horns cut, and KillerBee mentioning that the only other person would could dodge ( / fight toe to toe with) him was his brother I had a feeling the Raikage would've been the one who did that. If we thought the current Raikage right now is the most hardass looking ninja we've seen thus far then his dad was even more so O_O!

    Nothing REALLY happened in this chapter "plot wise" per se but judging by the happy ending we got it seems that Bee should be more inclined to help naruto now or even if he still has his doubts Motoi would make him change his mind since it's practically through Naruto that he was able to makes amends with Bee. Once again, Naruto is the ambassador of peace and friendship.

    Man... Bee's too comfortable with that Samehada always strapped to his back and the suspense of Kisame reappearing is killing me. When he does return however he should be pumped up on all the chakra the Samehada prob absorbs from the 8tails.

    2 things
    1. I may have been wrong on who cut off hachibi's horn off, but I so called that someone did it at one point.
    2. so 30 years before + 5 years of age... bee is over 35 years old and he looks like that?! something is seriously off with that picture.

    Nah my family tends to look young. I turn 21 this year and last weekend someone assumed I was 14(I still get asked if I want a kiddy menu). And my Mother is like 44 and people think she's my sister. Its not odd at all.

    I figured KB would be in his late 30s but judging by the chronology this chapter gave us he's right around 35 and judging by his older brother's appearance, at the time bee was 5 years old, he looked like he was probably in his 20s... so that would put him at about 50 something?? He definitely looks old enough to be around Jiraiaya's and Tsunade's age yet younger enough to be taunted by Granpa Rock Kage at the summit.

    Seeing the Cloud nins with their constant struggle with the 8 tails was interesting, to say the least.

    Naruto is always better when Kishi goes outside Konoha and the Naruto/Sasuke/old guy love triangle
