Oh dammit, we can't read in the dark...

Sorry for taking so long this time guys. Especially on a chapter that merited so much discussion! I did say that I'd probably take until Mondays or Tuesdays for a while, but I'll try to make it Mondays most of the time. ;) That being said, I still didn't have much time to spare today. So if my review seems rushed this time, my sincere apologies. You guys are welcome to fill in any gaps with your own analysis, though.

The usual culprits, Hisshou, Kylara, and CeZ, all have my gratitude for providing all the necessary elements for this week's edition of my review :D

Onward we go.

How nice, Kisame helping the elderly get around...

1. Another One Down, Two to Go...! Well, finally, we see some results from Itachi and Kisame.

I had observed a few months ago that it almost seemed like they were beginning to lag behind the rest of the Akatsuki in capturing jinchuuriki. Of course, Itachi would later explain why they decided to wait for Naruto, but all the same it's nice to see them live up to their reputation by finally capturing a bijuu as well.

Even if it is inside an old man, heh. Though that probably made him even more dangerous, as he's probably had a heckuva of experience to have lived that long as a jinchuuriki! I wonder how old he really was, though. Would be interesting if the life-spans of jinchuuriki were longer than most normal people due to their unusual physiology.

In short: Shaddup dude!

2. How Times Have Changed...! Wow.

Seems to me like over the time-jump, Kisame's gotten a little more spunk in speaking towards his companion... disrespectful, even, almost. You can tell by Itachi's facial expressions that he's very displeased with Kisame's tone, too, so this must be a new development as he's not used to it.

Either Kisame's been hanging around Hidan and Kakuzu too much, or he's grown a bit disillusioned with his "famous clan-killer" buddy. Hmm. Well, maybe if Itachi's unable to depend on his Mangekyou Sharingan as much...

Incidentally, as for the Yonbi having multiple elemental abilities, that sounded suspicously a little bit different from what I had read about in Dyroness' "Legend of Tailed Beasts" (http://forums.narutofan.com/showthread.php?t=57918) essay at NF. Sounded more like what the Gobi (supposedly a five-tailed hound, remarked to have mastery of all the five basic elements) would have - so I investigated, and it seems as though Dyro's sources were a little off-base after all - Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bijuu) claims that these folktales are actually fakelore from Chinese websites.

Well, it's obvious that there are still some similarities - the Two-Tails was definitely a cat, and the Three-Tails was a water-based creature - but I guess you can't blame Kishimoto for making his bijuus a bit different if the "Legend" we read about turns out to have been nothing more than another written version of the original mythology. If anybody could shed some more light on this matter, by all means post away.

Remember, all I have to do is
look funny at you...

Oh, yeah, back to the little squabbling going on here between Itachi and Kisame. I'm wondering if Kisame is more or less a little bit frustrated with Itachi's hesitation to fight anybody.

Being somebody who obviously loved to battle, Itachi has probably irritated him several times over the year. So, I predict some personality conflicts starting to spark between these two now. Hey, it's what all married couples go through...

And a final sidenote here, I have to say Itachi finally looks a bit different in his design from how he looked in Part One. His hair's longer, and so on. It looks as though Kishimoto has finally started to feel confident about drawing Itachi as looking like somebody different in subtle ways from his little brother. Which might mean we might indeed be looking at a final confrontation very, very soon...

Though, I note that Kishimoto missed Itachi's "face-wrinkles" in a couple of panels in this chapter. Heh.


http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/7808/03wp4.png
Doesn't sound good.

3. Anal Retentive Akatsuki...! Alright, so we discover that the Akatsuki's plans for "world domination" are actually pretty fragile here. If they make even as much as one boo boo, their pet statue goes boom! I wonder if that's actually what Deidara joined up for - heh? No wonder they're all so high-strung.

Get ready to see this happen in the series, though. It seems more likely to happen than Naruto being taken and his Kyuubi sealed.


http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/6266/03vpe9.png
Wow! Itachi Talks!

In order to make the sealing easier, seems as though they have to save the Kyuubi for last. I surmise that the Ichi was taken in too early (since Itachi said Deidara screwed up?) for the same reason, but they were able to get past it. But the whole sealing bijuu process may have been made even more sensitive as a result. Well, that's just what I was thinking while reading this page, anyway.

That and the fact I feel as though Kisame's a dope for taking two entire years and a half to finally find out why they're waiting to capture the Kyuubi, heh.


http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/4990/04bl5.png
I did get to say some cool lines to one, though...

4. Wanted: Alive or Dead. Yeah, this is Kishimoto's obvious explanation for why they didn't dare take Kakuzu back alive.

There must have been fans asking the same things about why they didn't keep Kakuzu as a prisoner to extract some information. Still, I wonder if this means somebody like Tobi will eventually be taken prisoner, though...


http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/1628/05of0.png
What are we doing having a transitional chapter, then? Let's Go!

5. Saying the Obvious...! Looks like we WILL get to see Team 7 chase after Itachi, because so far, Tsunade hasn't said a single thing to dissuade them. And Kakashi himself made the suggestion! That makes me happy, as he'll probably be going, as well. Instead of Yamato? Maybe with Yamato? Whichever is the case, I don't particularly care.

Anyway, I waited until now to talk about the possibilities of what will happen what with Team "Hebi" and Team 7 both looking for the same quarry. I think that they will both encounter different Akatsuki for now, and then confront each other, all with mixed and surprising results.

But Itachi himself won't be along for quite a while. Itachi is such a crucial element to Sasuke's backstory that the final encounter between these two brothers will be a major turning point in the series, so I think it won't happen until the very end of the arc. So don't hold your breath, even though we have been seeing more of him lately. ;)


http://img238.imageshack.us/img238/4605/06v1wr2.png
No dinner for you tonight.

6. The Last to Know...! Well, the Akatsuki finally gets to talking about the downfall of Hidan and Kakuzu. I don't know if the Leader's statements confirms that either one is officially dead yet, but it certainly doesn't sound like we'll be hearing from them again. Especially since Zetsu most likely did some foraging just to make sure.

I found the Leader's rebuke of Kisame interesting, here. Coupled with the Leader's understanding of Leaf religion, I can't help but start to feel like the Leader is from Konohagakure.


http://img444.imageshack.us/img444/8708/06v2pd3.png
The bastards!

And so the Legend of Team 7 grows...!

Heh, but you know, Zetsu neglected to say Shikamaru was a driving force behind Hidan's death - might be that Zetsu only managed to catch the latter part of Kakuzu's last stand.

Well, the Akatsuki are certainly going to be super-cautious about fighting Naruto now. That's possibly not good news...


http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/49/07yk1.png
Tobi was only making a funny!

7. Like Water and Oil...! Tobi is a "good boy," huh?

Funny that Deidara used to be the one who made his senior angry, and now it's him getting pissed. But Tobi certainly doesn't like he knows the meaning of subtlety!

I have a sneaking suspicion we're going to be seeing more of Deidara and Tobi both soon. They seem to be the "heir apparent" to Hidan and Kakuzu right now, too, as far as comedy relief goes, too.


http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/9855/08pb5.png
Let's give him a medal!

8. Oh Noes, Oro's Dead...!? Again, I don't think this should be taken as confirmation at all that Oro is dead. They're only going by hearsay, most likely - like everybody else right now.

But now Sasuke has definitely lost the element of surprise. I'm sure Sasuke isn't going to be happy about that when he finds out - Suigetsu made a HUGE mistake by broadcasting Sasuke's victory to the world!


http://img465.imageshack.us/img465/9553/09sd7.png
And that's actually beer he's drinking, by the way...

9. A Child Prodigy...! This reminds me a bit of the second X-Men movie regarding the character Mystique. Sure, Mystique was cool enough on her own, but Magneto would add some details about her that made her seem even cooler.

Here we see Kisame do the same thing, with a short description, he fleshed out who Suigetsu really is to the readers, and making us think of him as being even more twisted and dangerous.

On the other hand, for me, these little grisly details about Suigetsu's macabre enjoyment reminded me of Shira, from Blade of the Immortal, one of the most evil psycho killers I've ever read about, and he enjoyed basically much the same thing! Is Suigetsu really that despicable?

P.S. Did ya note that even though they ALSO mentioned Juugo - somebody who's been locked up for years - they didn't say one thing about Karin? Ouch!


http://img465.imageshack.us/img465/8717/10fs7.png
Time to make some pretty lights...!

10. Dei-Dei Entering the Fray...!? The final scene of the chapter here, with Deidara showing his hand, makes me really think that Deidara and Tobi are going to take the initiative against Sasuke's team.

Especially since both Deidara and Tobi have already captured their jinchuurikis. They are likely just bored right now. What else do they have to do right now?

RATING: 4 of 5 - Pretty nice chapter, though I feel as though the Akatsuki isn't as impressive as they could have been - here, they almost seemed like a group of spoiled children bickering back and forth.

PREDICTIONS: Yeah, well, we're going to get to see what the plan is for chasing Itachi around the world.

Comment! ^^

not bad GK, fast but important points are pointed out, no need for detail it was a transitional chapter anyway, just the akatsuki reflecting and reviewing basically, just one thing, by you saying that the akatsuki leader is from konohagakure, youve just given a push to those who think the AL is yondaime, I have had enough zombies in one peice and now there in naruto, I dont think so.

also your comments about itachi and kisame, well they have been together for what we know at least three years, they must know more about each other and where to draw lines about issue, the thing about kisame, and actually most who come from hidden mist like zabuza and now suigetsu, is that they seem to enjoy battle more than anything, just like zaraki kenpachi and his squad in bleach, they like fighting, and kisame has a bigger chance of fighting when he is with itachi, I mean just look at his twisted description when he heard about suigetsu, cute smile and a murder prodigy, thats what he was saying about his enemy, his enjoyment is too obvious to me, and itachi doesnt seem to mind and gives him the chance to express himself, also in akatsuki, everyone doesnt seem to know the all the details, the leader is an interesting guy in that he keeps them in order and also, they trust him to do the plans and technical bits.

well thats all I have to say, a bit of analysis of kisame and akatsuki, good job GK.

Nice job as usual GK. Isn't Kakuzu dead though? I mean, Tsunade did an autopsy of sorts on him not terribly long ago. I thought Kakashi finished the job and took him back to examine him.

I like your analysis of the relationship between Itachi and Kisame as well.

Keep up the good work.

I think Itachi is actually less more inclined to battle than Kisame, though.

I don't think the AL is Yondaime, no. Just somebody who also has his roots in Konohagakure.

Yes, Kakuzu is dead. That's one we know for sure who is dead. It's Hidan I'm more or less thinking about whose death is still in question. ^^

Keep up the good work.
about that, kakashi last commented on how they were not able to capture any of the akatsuki, I think when kakuzu was laying down on the ground after taking the fuiton rasenshuriken head on there was absolutely no chance of him living for long, kakashi finished him out of mercy becuase he was already dying, thats what I think, just a theory though.

about AL being yondaime, I know you didnt mean it and think it, but lots of people might qoute you and use your suggestion as proof for that theory though.

Awesome review GK :D I will only two things quote this time ;p


Get ready to see this happen in the series, though. It seems more likely to happen than Naruto being taken and his Kyuubi sealed.
It would be nice. Gaara could be having reappearance after a while, to gice feedback back. But that's so cool, that I have little hope about Narut in Aka.. : (


In order to make the sealing easier, seems as though they have to save the Kyuubi for last. I surmise that the Ichi was taken in too early (since Itachi said Deidara screwed up?) for the same reason, but they were able to get past it.
hmm or maybe Ichi was too late, if Deidara screw up :D (there where some demons already in statue, if I recall corectly - 3)

May 16, 2007, 02:11 PM
Great comments :D

Can't say much about this chapter, other than that Itachi likes to "..." a lot and that it got me much more interested in Suigetsu. If he was like that as a child no wonder he killed the dying man in Oro's headquarters.

Also, right now it seems possible that Itachi and Kisame will face Naruto's team (and perhaps win?) while Tobi and Deidara face team Hebi. Why else would Deidara be so interested in Suigetsu and even end the chapter was "interesting bunch"?

May 16, 2007, 02:28 PM
Great review as always GK !

I've always wondered about how the Akatsuki could fuction together, a bunch of super-egos who couldn't stay loyal to there own villages, this bickering seems correct.

This also speaks to the power of the AK Leader, to command respect and obdience from a bunch of criminals, who for the most part have little resect for anyone and shed all loyalties long ago.

I also think the Akatsuki Leader must have some past affiliation with Konoha, ever since his warning about "The Will of Fire", but I do not think he is any previously known character.

Of course, Itachi would later explain why they decided to wait for Naruto, but all the same it's nice to see them live up to their reputation by finally capturing a bijuu as well.

Yeah.. a new mystery appeared here as well. Why must the Kyuubi is to be sealed last? Sure not because of according to order since they did sealed the Shukaku after obtaining other Bijyuus.

And if the Kyuubi is to be the last one, why Itachi and Kisame gone into trouble getting Naruto so early back in the Part One? Shouldn't they just go after Gaara first? Sure after that battle, it's no secret Gaara is a Jinchuuriki (in fact, I believe it is never a secret for those who with the knowledge about the Bijyuus, kinda obvious he is harboring one). Yeah, one can say they'll lock up Naruto, sure. But I don't think the Akatsuki would take risk to keep a Jinchuuriki that long.



2. How Times Have Changed...! Wow.

Seems to me like over the time-jump, Kisame's gotten a little more spunk in speaking towards his companion... disrespectful, even, almost. You can tell by Itachi's facial expressions that he's very displeased with Kisame's tone, too, so this must be a new development as he's not used to it.

Yeah... somehow Kisame is being disrespectful towards Itachi, but by all means, he has no reasons to be respectful either. Maybe what kept him in check for all this while was fear. But being along side Itachi for so long, perhaps Kisame understood mmore or less about Itachi's weakness.


Well, maybe if Itachi's unable to depend on his Mangekyou Sharingan as much...

This should be one of the bigger reasons. I mean, back then, 3 years ago (during Akatsuki arc in Part 1), Itachi already had trouble using MS for two times in a row. When he had to use Tsukoyomi on Sasuke and then Amaterasu on the wall of meat, we can see clearly from his face, how draining it can be.




Oh, yeah, back to the little squabbling going on here between Itachi and Kisame. I'm wondering if Kisame is more or less a little bit frustrated with Itachi's hesitation to fight anybody.

One thing is good about Itachi is that he is not rushed to attain his goals. Well, I would not call it hesitation, but Itachi is just a calculated type of shinobi. Never hurts to plan well, ne?


Which might mean we might indeed be looking at a final confrontation very, very soon...

Yeah, I believe his days are numbered. Maybe not his death yet, but maybe the great defeat of Itachi is soon to be seen.


Get ready to see this happen in the series, though. It seems more likely to happen than Naruto being taken and his Kyuubi sealed.

Yeah, personally I am hoping that Naruto will lose his Kyuubi soon, by Akatsuki methods or any other way. I mean, Kyuubi is everything to Naruto. THat beast has shaped Naruto indirectly. He is hated by the villagers, shunned away because of it, but yet, became dependable to it (at least before the 4 tailed KyuubiNaruto vs Oro).

It would be nice to see what happened to Naruto if he loses his Kyuubi.





6. The Last to Know...! Well, the Akatsuki finally gets to talking about the downfall of Hidan and Kakuzu. I don't know if the Leader's statements confirms that either one is officially dead yet, but it certainly doesn't sound like we'll be hearing from them again. Especially since Zetsu most likely did some foraging just to make sure.

Well, a little complain here anyway.

Akatsuki has been known as S-Ranked Nukenins, yeah, that's big. The rank says they are on the same level as Jiraiya himself. So far, I can say, the 3 deceased members, are somewhat disappointing =/

Everytime a member got into a big fight, they'll ended up dead. Plus, on Konoha hands. Yeah, Sakura has Chiyo backing her up, but what she can do against Sasori without Sakura? Plus, what is she got herself poisoned? Sakura was the one who made the antidote for Sasori's poison.

In my boook, Konoha 3, Akatsuki 0



And so the Legend of Team 7 grows...!

I bet their heads worth a lot in the Bingo Book :XD


Well, the Akatsuki are certainly going to be super-cautious about fighting Naruto now. That's possibly not good news...

Naruto and Akatsuki's paths are now inevitable. Naruto probably not just on the top of the hitlist because he is a Jinchuuriki, but because his potential as well.


8. Oh Noes, Oro's Dead...!? Again, I don't think this should be taken as confirmation at all that Oro is dead. They're only going by hearsay, most likely - like everybody else right now.

Nah.. we'll see more Oro later on. Since his death is a bit "too easy"



Ahh.. anyway, nice comments as always, GK :kkthumbs

May 16, 2007, 04:01 PM
great review gk. about kisame losing respect for itachi, that seems to be the case but in my opinion itachi is still very formidable and kisame actually might be underestimating him. also could it be that the members are assigned bijuu according to their level of power, coz if that''s the case then itachi would be pretty far up in akatsuki ranks. i think itachi actually might be an important strategist in akatsuki because he hasn't been shown talking in presence of all the members, his statements about the sealing statue on the other hand indicate that itachi has very deep understanding of akatsuki plans.

May 16, 2007, 05:14 PM
Great comments.
Itachi's "..." about the whole thing is... funny?? He does that all the time, but he did talk to Kisame earlier in the chapter. The main thing is he didn't react to the news at all. What was he thinking? Or does he not care at all? He probably wouldn't be proud of Sasuke or anything, since Orochimaru wasn't really strong to begin with.

Sarmad
May 16, 2007, 05:33 PM
I don't think the AL is Yondaime, no. Just somebody who also has his roots in Konohagakure.


It's probably that boy who was in Yondaime's Team. ^^

As for the chapter, it is quite frustrating that Kishimoto's Naruto can't reach the level of a manga like One Piece ... um what am i saying!? The storytelling in Naruto is not half as good as in One Piece!
At times it seems as if Kishimoto doesn't really know how to go on with the story. For example, Naruto's mission to retrieve Sasuke has vanished into thin air! And that stupid comic relief which was way too much fan service, i mean all that Yaoi crap >.<! And most importantly Akatsuki's degradation. Akatsuki has been constantly losing it's image of a fearfull criminal organization.
The manga is losing it's edge and credibility! Kishi draws a big world with many countries and many many shinobi's (and some of 'em are really strong and from Konoha ^^), but how come that only a part of that world (Konoha and Sunagakure) is involved in the fight against Akatsuki, a socalled thread to the world!? THe other countries don't seem to exist! THe Funny thing is, that Akatsuki will be wiped out by Konoha's "new generation", which is frankly as ridicolous as Tsunade having send Genins to retrieve Sasuke. She had at least no other choice back then but now she's on her way to become completely nuts! Tsunade is gambling with lifes here! ^^
Anyway, why isn't someone else or rather antoher country after akatsuki? Or why won't Tsunade send some more experienced Jounin's after Akatsuki?

May 16, 2007, 05:47 PM
Great comment Gk! I'm just a little confused about one thing, it might be because I do no have have a great memory. I know there are nine jinchuuriki right? How many have they captured so far?

DarkManSharingan32
May 16, 2007, 10:57 PM
I'm sticking with my guns here... and forecasting Tobi and Deidara as back up for Itachi and Kisame. They will arrive beating back Team Hebi a bit... just in time for Team 7 + Co. to show up.

I'm really thinking that Team 7 won't be alone... and I can't shake the feeling of Gai jumping at the bit to take on Kisame again.

This sets up some really interesting battles.... Gai vs. Kisame... Tobi vs. Kakashi.
I think they main battles will be inturruped with add-ons from Hebi... but it will definetly make things interesting. Imagine a Karin and Sakura pair.
---

btw... Great comments again here.
I'm really with you on the overall flow of the Manga from here.

You could be right conan. Kakuzu sure looked like his days were numbered!

Ah, you could be onto something there juUnior. It would make sense to be sealing the bijuus by the numbers XD But wouldn't that mean the ones who already got their bijuu were the ones who screwed up? Should have waited for the Shukaku...

ibra, yup, could happen...

wykowsuki, agreed... but it's almost as though the AL is a bit of a babysitter it seems :p

"Stop fighting boys! It's time to take your bath."

bax - I think each group is assigned to capture two bijuus specifically (usually) though there are some cases where others might still beat them to it. I think that's what happened to Sasori, somebody else in the Akatsuki group already took his jinchuuriki, so he wasn't sure who he'd be catching.

I think the Kyuubi is the most attractive bijuu though, for all the power it contained, so I believe that's why Itachi wanted it... but who knows. But remember, Sasori teased Itachi about the possibility of taking the Kyuubi himself earlier in Part One, and Itachi was none too pleased about it!

Yes, I think Kisame has lost a little bit of his fear, or he's gotten more confident in his own abilities (perhaps knowing how to battle Itachi in a Gai-esque manner (looking at the feet) - they may have sparred more in the past.)

Well it's actually Konoha 3, Akatsuki 1, I think, because Hidan and Kakuzu nearly did kill Asuma's team the first time. If Raidou and Aoba hadn't come along and saved Shikamaru, Hidan may have never been defeated.

Yup, a lot of money in the bingo book xD Thanks bax ^^

arslan_tariqch, yes, could be Kisame just started to wonder if Itachi actually had any guts to fight a bijuu, since he's been more or less in the shadows for so long.

SilveryShadows, something I did notice though, Itachi HAS been showing more emotion than usual lately... especially when talking to Kisame. But yeah, his "..." is kind of part of his character now!

Sarmad, haha, could be (Yondaime's teammate being AL).

I think that the other countries didn't care as much about their jinchuuriki as Konoha and Suna does about theirs. Even Suna initially hesitated to chase after Gaara. Anyway, I actually still enjoy Naruto more than One Piece so I can't really say I share the same viewpoint as you. I think that Kishimoto still knows what he's doing with the story.

While I don't really disagree with the way he's been giving the Akatsuki so many "kooky moments," I think that he always intended for them to be a bunch of individualistic criminals. it's just amazing how they've managed to stay together THIS long! I don't blame Orochimaru for leaving now!

I think, kadodo, that they've only a couple to go after the Four-Tails is sealed, but I'm just hazarding a guess there. The Kyuubi and one more.

DMS32, yes, I'm eagerly anticipating the battles to come in this arc. It looks like it's all Akatsuki from here on out.

Thanks all!

On "Deidara screwed up, too".

I wasn't sure what he was getting at here, either. I'm guessing it was about how he lost both his arms during his mission and got his ass knocked around by Naruto?

I disagree. Both Naruto and One Piece have their own +/- so for fans of that or that title it will be always that or that the best.


How many have they captured so far?
I think that Aka has 6 demons (or 7 with that old 4-tail jinchuuriki), so 1 to go, besides of kors Naruto as Kyubi must be the last, and it will be like that in 99% :D


But wouldn't that mean the ones who already got their bijuu were the ones who screwed up? Should have waited for the Shukaku...

I wasn't sure what he was getting at here, either. I'm guessing it was about how he lost both his arms during his mission and got his ass knocked around by Naruto?
hmm it could be, but how it was mentioned with also that panel with that statue caring demons, I think it's most likely, that Deidara srew up because he was the one, who took long/wait long to capture Shukaku demon/jinchuuriki.

great comments!

I thought that you should have mentioned something about deidara's arm though..

Unless I'm mistaken, I believe that this is the first chapter to show deidara's left arm. After Gaara crushed Deidara's arm, it was never seen again until now, which made a lot of people believe that it was never reattached until recently.
