I'm really disappointed. Kishi not only pulled stuff out of his arse, but he shat on the naruto lore again. Plz stop undoing the world you've created.
I still haven't quite forgiven him from changing naruto from a hard worker into "the destined child."
Well, he didn't really undo it, since he explained how the souls were released from the Shinigami. It was an unexpected twist and I'll reserve judgment until I see how it pans out.
Seriously.... what the fuck just happened?
Shyt just happened. Naruto is getting shytier than bleach. Edo Tensei is a boring shyt repetitive no jutsu. Summoning the Hokage again is a shyt move by Kishi which I think he got a writers block. Sasuke is a shyty villian which should have been killed since Naruto Chapter 1.
So with the release undone, does that mean Naruto's gonna get the rest of the nine tales chakra and get stronger?
Well that was... unexpected. I sure wasn't expecting them to actually go to Konoha; I thought they were going into some alternate dimension where supernatural beings with extradimensional awareness lived, like the inside of the Sword of Akasha in Code Geass. I never would have expected Orochimaru to have a way to release the souls from the belly of the Shinigami (as well as his arms, nice touch there) either. It's certainly a neat concept- except this really may NOT be the time to be bringing back the first 3 Hokages, ESPECIALLY since Madara has just been done talking about what an invincible, unstoppable, godlike lord of war Hashirama was. It's NOT a good idea to be reminding us of the fact that, last time we saw him, he was impressive but still just a powerful ninja who the 3rd Hokage actually beat handily- it just highlights how badly the story has escalated out of control. Also, wasn't Minato's consciousness sealed inside Naruto's seal, not the Shinigami's belly?
And the bit with the stupid zetsu clones was a total ass pull. Especially Orochimaru doing his body swap jutsu to steal the body of one so casually. Wasn't that his ultimate technique, the one he could only perform every 3 years?
Oh well. At least we'll finally find some shit out now.
^ Arcane, remember Minato only infused/left some of his conscious within Naruto, to act as a failsafe, in the event that he unleashed the 8 tails. He's the equivalent to a ninja hacker so he wrote that piece of code into the seal before he sacrificed himself.
Nothing to say about this chapter... besides the obvious counter shot to Naruto by having sasuke, in similar fashion to Naruto when he just came back to Konoha after his 2 year time skip, jump up on a pillar to take in the Vastness of the village. Only diffence this time is Sasuke took his return to Konoha in the darkness of light whereas Naruto's in the light of day. I actually liked that picture.
P.S. I agree Tek. I guess we now have hack for Naruto to get the complete Kyuubi.
It's just all one big asspull and a pile of B.S. Firstly there is a mask in possession of the Uzumaki clan that summons the shinigami. Yet merely sits among other masks in an old temple and not sealed away somewhere?
Next Orochimaru can just suck away all his chakra from Kabuto and this somehow restructures his body to the way it was?
Then summoning the shinigami only requires a sacrafice of body and not soul. Then he has to get the soul of his arms back from the shinigami to use edo tensei again. Yet was fine using jutsu after that. Unless all his snake jutsu never counted as jutsu.
Having to do it in front of that stone slab. It just all seems like nonsense. One thing i noticed though is. It looks like Orochimaru posssessed the Zetsu clone Suigetsu was holding down and not one of the four who were ressurected.
It's weird that almost everyone are despising this chpater.
On the contrary, I think it was pretty fine and logic, and not that farfetched to summon back the Hokages who are supposed to know much more about Madara and a way to beat him.
Like Arcane, I was expecting some much more esoteric world or another hermit mountain, or summon the two sons of the rikudo or something like that.
The only thing that has to be accepted as it is, like hellfire said, was the shinigami mask.
How did nit Oro think about it before? Or was it Kabuto who discovered that trick?
Arcane, I think Oro had to wait for 3 years because he lost his arms.
