    Ugh, just GET ON WITH IT!

    Having no chapter next week only makes it worse. Did we REALLY need an entire chapter on the childhood silliness of these characters that it's REALLY hard to give a shit about?

    Right, now get on with the fathers mutually kiling each other and the elder brothers teaming up to force the younger ones to back down.

    Naruto: the Secret Songs of the Ninja: My epic "what if" story where Sasuke never survived the battle against Haku.

    Top ten reasons why NaruHina will become canon:
    7. Naruto saw Hinata dancing naked in a waterfall, and he totally digs that.
    10. Hinata has giant boobies.

    Havent even read the chapter yet, on work, but thanks for prepping Arcane. Kishi's version of the "turn back the shit-pendulum" continues at a snail's pace I see. I'll wait till I read it to fully comment.

    Seeing how much the Second takes after his father was kind of interesting. Right now we are seeing a much darker Ninja world than we are used to. Hopefully it will be a cool fight between Uchiha and Senju next time.

    I agree with sentiments expressed that these flashbacks really aren't moving the story forward in any meaningful way. It seems to me that Kishi is trying to make it look as though Sasuke has been forced into a corner of sorts where he has to re-evaluate his convictions (something akin to Naruto's meeting with Nagato's real body), but all the tension and high drama of that encounter just isn't present here. Additionally, there doesn't seem to be any sort of immediate danger putting Sasuke's resolve to the test. I personally think it would have been much more interesting if the First echoed the Second's sentiments, albeit more calmly, while giving Sasuke the courtesy to make a choice (or plan an escape...) whilst he told his tale. Team Snake/Eagle/Dr. Snakes/N'SYNC/etc seem intimidated enough (Oro, especially) by the prospects of a loose Hashirama, but the same is lost on me given the Shodai's laid-back attitude.

    Furthermore, inserting a whole backstory smack in the middle of this isn't helping the situation, especially since shifting gears over to Sasuke was derailment enough as is. The purpose of the flashbacks, themselves, is also questionable since I don't personally see any legitimate conviction behind any of Sasuke's proposed actions, given all that he's learned so far. It's as annoying to me as the resolve-checks that Naruto's been undergoing so far a la Obito...half of which should have already been addressed when Pein wrecked the village.

    Having said all of that, I gotta say that I'm actually liking this diversion! :P
    I've always held a fascination for the past eras and most anything fleshing out those details garners my approval! There's something charming about it and I think the characterization of the Senjuu and Uchiha is brilliant, given the context! The antics of the young Hashirama/Madara are just icing on the cake.

    ^ I especially like the comment you made: "Additionally, there doesn't seem to be any sort of immediate danger putting Sasuke's resolve to the test. I personally think it would have been much more interesting if the First echoed the Second's sentiments, albeit more calmly, while giving Sasuke the courtesy to make a choice (or plan an escape...) whilst he told his tale."

    Only thing kool about this chapter was seeing the first and madara's Dad and younger brother contrast each other.

    Again the only flashbacks I want to see is anything involving the Bijuu and when the 1st held dominion over them all. Basically I want to see the first in his prime and more adult examples of why he gained the reknown of being the top shinobi in the land.

    Actually, one of the things that really bothers me here is that Sasuke doesn't seem to have any regard for the position he's in. He doesn't seem even slightly bothered by the Second's animosity towards him and is still acting like he's in charge. OK, maybe he hasn't realised (like Orochimaru has) that the First could break the control on him if he put his mind to it so maybe he just doesn't grasp the true gravity of the situation, but it FEELS like Sasuke isn't being EXPECTED to respect the First because he's more powerful than the First is. Which is utterly retarded of course, but I can't help but get that impression.
