    I think he could've showed everyone's emotions in one page, but, nothing really happened this chapter. Let's see what next week brings up. No report on the Kages, they weren't even showed when they were transmitting the message.

    Okay chapter. A waste really seeing how 1) we already know everyone's feelings, 2) we still haven't cut back to the Madara vs. Kages fight, and 3) the konoha ninja still don't seem to get how strong Naruto is. I think Naruto is helping Kakashi and Guy far more than they are helping him out. And now a ton of other lesser ninja are running to "help" Naruto? They need to stay back, out of the way and show respect. That's Naruto-Dono btw and the ONLY konoha ninja that can call him a rival is headed toward him now... Sasuke.

    But maybe this is all just a setup for Sasuke. The army heads towards Naruto and while he's occupied fighting Tobi, Sasuke lays the smackdown on the army. Naruto is torn between settling the fight with Tobi or going after Sasuke. Or maybe Sasuke's headed toward the Madara vs. Kages fight. I wouldn't mind taking a slight detour if I were him to see the supposed greatest Uchiha of all time use a Sharingan progressed farther than perhaps only 2 or 3 people.

    The thing is...I don't think Sasuke will be able to beat Naruto of the 8 Bijuu Fists until he is synced with Gedo Mazo makes use of the 7 Bijuus in it. That is, unless Kishi makes Sharingan even godlier that it already is (he gains rinnegan like Madara).

    What I'm interested to know is what happened to Itachi,

    Now if that isn't some serious foreshadowing of Naruto and Hinata, I don't know what is
    Here here.

    My opinion is that Kishi did a good work by emphasizing that everyone is moving their ass to save Naruto, while Sasuke is alone in the mud, and having no other goals than ... what are his goals already? Mindf*** the wolrd? After Masked man's meeting, he became the epitom/embodiement of Neurasthenia and depression.
    While Naruto is the epitom of Willpower and Positive hustling.
    I love this parallel.
    Nice one, Bledge! I can't believe that one went over my head, like that. Re-reading the chapter with that perspective in mind really made a big difference for me. Sucks that we missed out on Neji's thoughts, but I also wonder about what sort of an impression Naruto left on the rest of the shinobi army. With him bringing about the turning point in the entire war, I think he's set himself up as quite a legendary ninja already!

    1) I disagree considering what Bledge said. Really liked that move, there. :P
    2) Seriously...the suspense is killing me. I was really looking forward to seeing some true kage-calibre brawling, especially against one of the most powerful shinobi of all time.
    3) I beg to differ on this point as well. Keep in mind that he's dispatched tens of clones to every major battlefield. Then recall the hell that the clones raised on the Gaara front. Despite not being shown what was going on elsewhere, I'd say it's a safe bet that the cloak-clones were an instrumental combat presence in addition to the vital support role they played alongside their respective armies (malice detection). Remember how many shinobi saw his battle against the third Raikage? Multiply that out across all the major battlefields, because all those ninjas are now free to back him up on the main front!

    But maybe this is all just a setup for Sasuke. The army heads towards Naruto and while he's occupied fighting Tobi, Sasuke lays the smackdown on the army. Naruto is torn between settling the fight with Tobi or going after Sasuke. Or maybe Sasuke's headed toward the Madara vs. Kages fight. I wouldn't mind taking a slight detour if I were him to see the supposed greatest Uchiha of all time use a Sharingan progressed farther than perhaps only 2 or 3 people.
    You know...this makes we wonder. If I remember correctly, all those shinobi foot prints were making their way towards the shining sun through the clouds, i.e. presumably where Naruto and Tobi are, based on previous chapters while Sasuke is heading off towards a thunderstorm (symbolism, etc) . Based on that, Sasuke glancing over his shoulders, and seeing him depart from Tobi's main staging grounds, it doesn't seem like he's going to neither clash with the armies nor Naruto anytime soon. I'd have to agree with saying that he's probably making his way over to the Kages at the moment (Maybe Itachi, but I doubt it). What do you guys think?

    I have to agree with kid more than Bledge, despite Bledge's excellent observation. I understand that it's important to portray the other characters' feelings since this is near the end of the manga and they've got to get their, I guess, 'nods' for what they contributed to it before, and I understand that putting them in that light again at this point can benefit the story dramatically (as in 'drama') if Sasuke decides to chase after them and even manages to kill some of them in his emo-fueled rampage, but the lines still struck me as a bit forced from a writing standpoint. Their 'feelings' seemed really shallow to me. 'Ahaha, you're my rival.' 'Ahaha, I'm not fat anymore.' 'Ohono, a plot device is keeping my jutsu from ruining your epic fight.' We've seen Kishi do better 'Everyone acknowledges Naruto' moments, is really what I'm saying.

    And yeah, there are still quite a few loose ends to tie up. The Kage battle, the "Carnage about to come to the battlefield" that the last page foreshadowed, Itachi's confrontation with Kabuto -- which, honestly, may end up just happening to end the jutsu at an opportune moment, and, of course, Naruto versus Sasuke.

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

    I understand your points of view, Jaggid and Kid.
    "Portraying the other characters' feelings" feels a bit redundant and perhaps time wasting, because we basically already know everything on the topic.

    True Madara and Sasuke are definitely meeting soon and kick the Kages. I really hope so.
    I fear that we won't see the second part of Kages Vs Madara again until Sasuke arrives, just like we missed Kakashi Vs 7 Swordsmen.
    In my opinion, Sasuke still needs to do something really really really unforgivable from Naruto's perspectives: being a missing nin, killing Danzo, Karin and many others is not enough.
    Killing Kages and rampage an entire army would do the deeds, I guess.
    Killing Sakura would too, and imo it would remove the last bit of doubt about

    Everyone watch the newest episodes of Naruto!! It details the events right after Naruto's birth and the Fourth's battle with Tobi and IT'S A FUCKING WORK OF ART!

    Torrent links: http://www.nyaa.eu/?page=search&cats...blesubs+Naruto

    Episodes 248 and 249 came out this week. I've only watched 248 so far so I can't say if 249 is as beautiful, but if they're anything alike then FUCK YEAH I have another 20 minutes of awesome ahead of me. And this is coming from someone who usually finds the anime less than good.

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

    I, too, was watching it earlier. I don't watch anime at all anymore and I can say that the quality here was top notch. This does not make up for all the other shit they put in our faces though. (Pain fight)
