Yes, you guys are still here!
With this great chapter, it really made my day!
Naruto Vs Kyubi 's gonna be a "who's got the bigger guts?" or something. Just by the look of Naruto and Kyubi's chakra (the ghost thingy outside their materialized body is their chakra, right?), it's gonna be an interesting match: chakra-wrestling contest!
And Sage Mode may be the key for the final blow.
If any limitation falls upon Naruto on using Kyubi, I can see very well that Naruto would need to unlock Sage mode to have enough chakra/stability to fully control Kyubi
It'd give credit about Naruto's previous training + the line he said in th Iron Country "I need to expand the time of SM"
