So much to say about this chapter.
1) apparently to be a real bad ass you gotta steal Hashirama's cell's, all the main antagonists have them
2) On the note of Orochimaru, seriously? He went from wanting Sasuke's body to being his freaking guardian angel
3) Did I miss something? When did Tobirama have the ability to sense what kind of cells somebody's got?
4) What's the point of having anyone else in this war now? If we were going to be completely logical about this, all the hokage's could just go out and fight Madara themselves and they'd never die, at the least they'd be a whole hell of a lot more useful than anyone else helping Naruto out right now. And the way Oro's talking it sounds like he might consider letting them loose to go fight, so it's not like that's implausible
Orochimaru's redemption is strange, yes. It seems like Kishi can never just make a bad guy who stays bad.
I don't think the Hokage will fight Madara though. Sasuke is going to make the emo decision and destroy the Leaf, and then Naruto will end up having to fight the Hokage as well.
Just the fact that Sasuke wants to find out the history of the leaf, and the 1st's answer will factor in sasuke's decision or not, shows me that he isnt really set in his resolve and will likely help out Naruto. If he decides otherwise then that would be Sasuke, Orochimaru, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th as well as Madara and Tobi all against Naruto....because lets be real, with the power levels we're seeing now Naruto is the ONLY person from the Allies (other than the current Kages-who's faith is still unknown?) that stand a chance against any of these foes.
The Hokages HAVE to help Naruto and company out in order to defeat the God Madara. Not to mention it think its almost a given that Sasuke will turn good in the end seeing as how Orochimaru already knows that he already lost control of the 1st and he alone should be enough to stop them all providing sasuke gives him the wrong answer, i.e. "screw you guys im gonna destroy the leaf anyways".
I don't know about the whole final fight between Naruto and Sasuke thing anymore, cause honestly how is a fight just between those two supposed to top Madara and the ten tails? Maybe they'll just have a friendly sparing match or something at the end to compare who's stronger
I'm just so tired of this. When I was 18 Naruto was the best story telling on the planet... now it's just dragging along in what seems like the last slurps of whatever profit they can get... yes I'll keep reading... but I only catch up when the thought, "hey is Naruto over yet?", hits me and I come back... this is about as stale as a cheeto lost under the couch...
the thing about Hashrirama cells belonging to the most powerfull shinobi
which it reminds me about a certain British Sci-fi (Warhammers 40k ----> for teh EMPEROR?)
well this is just like Bleach now..POK-kai are supposed to be rare, but now everyone has them?
but seeing how Shonen Jump can milk out and how dead characters can some influence over Naruto and gang
I don't think this series will end anytime soon now.
