    I think it's a little too fast. That one scene when Kurama cheered Naruto on after unlocking more chakra for him to use felt completely out of character; even if he really hated Madara more than anything, he should at least hope that they kill each other, not gleefully hope that Naruto would win, as it appeared to me he did. All of a sudden Kurama went from a stubborn ball of hatred into a sappy little puppy dog hoping the best for his master.

    To me that came out of nowhere and suddenly jumped their relationship into definite BFFs to be, all in a matter of a few days. Sure we were just shown a flashback with him reminiscing over Naruto's growth, but if he really cared so much about it, we would have seen changes in his character over time, not him trying to corrupt/kill Naruto at every turn up until very recently.

    May those who accept their fate be granted happiness; to those who defy it, glory.

    Now this I agree with. When Karuma was cheering Naruto on for giving him chakra, seriously he was smiling and everything, I though that would be it. That was the turning point at which he would finally see Naruto's side, but after that, especially when the fight with the other Bijuu commenced, he seemed stubborn again. Even though he had issue with madara why help Naruto then rather than when he needed him the most recently, a more serious predicament? I think Kishi indeed jumped the gun when he had Karuma so gleefully give Naruto's clone more juice that time indeed.

    As much as I didnt like the flashback (I mean really? No shit the Kyuubi knew and remembered all of Naruto's exploits, stop wasting precious panel space for flashbacks Kishi) it made sense in the natural progression of things. Naruto always talks a big talk, and follows through, so I guess when he told Karuma that he'd try to take away his hate in order to better their relationship, even though Karuma knows it'll happened and I am sure deep down he already knows Naruto is a man of his word, he wants to see Naruto try. I guess thats why he insults Hachi at the way he "submitted" to his host, Karuma wants to see Naruto earn his keep. Karuma is being a stubborn ass though because I am hella sure Hachi and KillerBee had the same relationship Naruto has with the Fox at the very beginning.... but KillberBee's enduring demeanor took its time to affect the 8, same way Naruto's is affecting the 9.

    All the flashbacks will probably have a better effect when it's in the anime, I mean most things usually do look better, but this especially

    ^ Negative Ghost Rider, the flashbacks make the anime WORST! Hell, they might, WILL, even dedicate an ENTIRE episodes solely for Kyuubi spectated Naruto flashbacks.

    Can't Kurama's hate for Madara outweigh his hate for Naruto and everybody else? He obviously knows that he can't do a thing against Madara himself. If anything, he would have wanted to help Naruto, his medium, in a fight against Madara.

    There might have been 2 pages too many of flashbacks. Frog Slam was still amazing though. The one thing I don't understand is how Naruto goes from being such an idiot to a tactical genius.

    Alright chapter... I wish the storyline would move a little faster, but I'm going to keep up with it none the less.

    I just like to think of them as sudden bursts of creativity. Everyone gets them, but Naruto happens to get them most when he's in the ever so sobering heat of battle. You know when he's in that mode whenever he has that dead set look in his eyes.

    Great chapter!
    I agree with Jaggid, Naruto's brain works on stress, in battlefield and training. His true "brain" doesn't lie in his head but in his guts.
    Like some says "intelligence of the heart".
    That's precisely my interpretation of the Nine Tails thoughts:
    brain = thoughts and stuff, guts = actions and risks.
    Naruto excels in the second level since the beginning.

    I'm sure Blackflash made his comeback on purpose with a flashback chapter!
    Anyway, nice to see you around again

    Naruto has always been known for thinking on the fly. He is not a planner. He is an instant out of the box heat of battle genius. I noticed a mistake in the flashback. Translation error or just a mistake. But Iruka said they were supposed to preform shadow clones. It was normal clones.

    JESUS CHRIST, does the DAMN manga need to go on for another 5 years before people find it acceptable for the nine tails to say one nice thing about Naruto. He already told us in the past he dies when Naruto dies.

    I think those saying the nine tails is being to buddy buddy with Naruto are clearly expecting to much. I assume in your opinion, Naruto should be Hokage before the nine tails says or does something nice to him.
