    "I might come for your ass again, you know." Ooh. Very poor choice of words by the translation team.

    Pretty meh overall. The final clash was literally just a rehash of the finale of their last scrap at the Valley only with upgraded techniques (Kagatsuchi Chidori vs Rasen Shuriken) and without transformations, and it wasn't as weighty or dramatic as last time either. The final resolution of the Naruto/Sasuke relationship was a wash too- although going into detail on the nature of Sasuke's feelings towards Naruto was long overdue, it was still all tell with no show (this is why this sort of thing shouldn't be retconned in) and it just felt like, after all his determination and ranting, Sasuke just went "eh to hell with it, I quit".

    The last shot of their missing arms was appropriately striking, though. Glad to see there might be SOME consequences to this whole shitfest.

    Anyone feel Kishimoto has been pressured to wrap the series up really quickly? The events of these last few chapters have been so rushed that it's jarring, made all the worse by how the previous 150 or so chapters have been padded like a flat girl's bra. Maybe even the editors noticed that the entire manga had gone to pot and were leaning on him to end it before it became a complete embarrassment?

    It'll all be over next week. Can't wait. (Epilogue chapter to follow?)

    Hmmmmm despite my prejudice against Sasuke I can't help but liking this conclusion

    My theory on why the manga's ending so soon is that Kishi wanted to end it on Chapter 700 and then all that other fighting dragged out and when he finally realized what he was doing he just decided to rush this last fight

    Chapter was really meh for me, could be that it was taking forever for the pages to load. However the fight ended very quickly, don't think any fight has ever ended that quickly in the series. I think maybe 2/3 chapters of actual fighting. The loss of their arms was different but I am interested to see if it last, I would assume so since the kyuubi conveniently had to take a nap because of loss of chakra. I was hoping Naruto would say, "I need you to help me, I am going to destroy the entire ninja system."

    I agree! Im more than glad to be done with this manga, but at the same time in hindsight, looking over previous battles it seems this particular fight (the one we've all been waiting for since we were teenagers (yes I started as a boy now im a man)) was rushed. This entire fight just seemed like it was in fast forward. And talk about flashbacks!

    On a side note, watching the conclusion of this fight gives a slight glimpse of soemthing akin to how the 1st and Madara's fight could have ended.

    And since no one said it i'll come out and say it: HOLY FUCKBALLS HANDS GONE!

    Luckily Naruto knows how to do a one handed Rasengan.

    I was shocked to see their arms blown off. I am still hoping that they fuck.

    The chapter was okay, I guess. The final clash was expected, as well as Sasuke coming around (or not? Dunno what I expected, was ready to accept any ending, to be honest). But I like this conclusion too. Also was fucking surprized by their arms missing, but that was a nice touch (hehe, get it? :P).

    Wonder how much of the new order Kishi will show in the last two chapters, or if he'll only show how they start building everything anew etc.

    Not that he'll need to anymore, in the new, peaceful and utopic ninja system :P

    It will be surely a bit awkward when Naruto ends and its Wednesday slot will remain vacant...will surely pick up something new, but still. Been a long time!
    As for why it had to end so fast, I also think Kishi (or his editors) wanted it to symbolically end at chapter 700 and there's this movie (or series?) project anyway, so there might either (or both, actually) be some more movies in the making, or some kind of Naruto GT (which, well, don't think it can get any worse, anyway ). We'll see, I guess.

    Only if Naruto is in his girl form. Anyway, you can check out hentai manga for that :P

    Oh man, pick up One Piece and join in our discussions!!

    It looks like both chapters 699 and 700 will be released together in Issue 50 of Weekly Shounen Jump (yeah, next time). With 700 being full color. At least that's how I understand it, will correct myself if something new comes out!

    I was disappointed that Naruto didn't use THAT jutsu. This resolution could've come 300 chapters sooner.
