Well it being my first review, its gonna be a bit scrappy. Thanks to all who scanned the raw, translation and scanlation!

I wont go on and on about how my weekends been. i'll just get straight into it.

1. The cover imagery didn't surprise me in anyway, its a bit half arse'd i think. We kinda had a good idea on there heights in previous chapters and the snake is just there to fill the gap.

As for the side text about the world changing around them is interesting as suigetsu's comments to the prisoners a few chapters back will ultimately make people awear of hebi. Bringing more conflict to them? Random shinobi trying to seek them out aswell for bingo book prizes. i dunno, i'm going off course here.

2. Tsunade & Ero Sennin obviously shows some level of uncertaincy as they question team 7 on what they can actually do. Which is a fair point, as i think they'll be arsehole lucky to deal any sort of damage to itachi, let alone capture/kill him.

On the other hand kakashi is enfusiastic and has had a strategy set out. I'm kinda surprised he has the confidence to think they'll all get back safely with sasuke and have a happy ending. He must be thinking differently but he's been in this naruto/sasuke hole since the beginning and feels he should do his part. so a high confidence is a must. Then again nothing is impossible in this naruto world. It seems, and he probably knows that.

3. This got me thinking as it really did remind me off the city akatsuki leader was looking over in chapter 329. All the pipes and tall buildings did seem familiar. This is most likely quite a distance from where the leader was sitting but i do believe it is a part of that city.

4. Sugetsu mentioning all the tunnels looking the same and karin mentioning the condition of the air is really just kishi giving the reader a better understanding on what the surrounds are really like. Makes it seem more realistic which kishi does well. for example naruto asking for an explanation, everytime something needs a bit of thought, it is spelt out to the reader so they dont feel like a baka.

5. The cats didn't surprise me (but i did kinda read the spoilers :/) pakkun (?) is a ninja dog, so why not cats? Same thing with talking frogs and snakes. But what i dont quite understand is the relation these cats have with the uchiha.


http://www.corsasport.co.uk/carimages/6073/08.jpg

Return bottle? i'm bum-founded by that to be honest. Not quite sure on what to make of it. Maybe its a japanese tradition? i really dont know. If anyone could share some light on this, i'd be grateful.

6. Sugetsu is really interested in the cats. Where as Karin is really avoiding them, or the cats are avoiding her. Which shows how different Sugetsu and Karin really are. Most likely more conflict between the two in the future. and whats this?? It seems to be medicine. Or maybe something else. I doubt sasuke had this on him before hand. Looks far too big to fit into his little pouch.


http://www.corsasport.co.uk/carimages/6073/10.jpg

7. There is quite a few questions here. Sasuke seems to have known this old women for a while now. Possibly this elder cat is an old friend of sasuke's mother or father? She also seems to be fairly knowledgeable, due to all them books in the back. Kinda same as Chiyo back at the start of Part 2 (chapter 252, the old girl). But i do feel a little confused with this whole cat thing. Its raised to many questions and hardly any answers. Yes we know its a weapons storage but thats about it. Its not anything to get too worked up about, hebi just went there to stock up. But i do secretly hope sasukes got some badarse sword now.

8. Juugo is an easily pleased guy isn't he. This shows a side of juugos personality that he doesn't want to be a nuisance. The curtain is undoubtedly going to get torn to shreds sooner or later by his morphing abilities anyway.


http://www.corsasport.co.uk/carimages/6073/12.jpg

9. Not too much to say here. Kishi making up a reason to send tobi and deidara. It was to be expected. But what i'm reeeally want to see is one, see tobi pull something out of the bag, but two to see hebi kick deidara's arse! Easily too. I believe its going to be very interesting within the next few chapters.

You may have noticed kisame and itachi are back at the statue and there not buzzing/half invisible. Which makes sense because its was there turn to bring the 4 tails along. Considering sasori made a mess of the last cave, maybe this wooden statue can be summoned wherever the akatsuki leader wants it.


http://www.corsasport.co.uk/carimages/6073/13.jpg

10. Loving hebis clothing! i think its really cool. Much like akatsukis dress code, it just gives them extra coolness. Which is what karin needs.

As hebi look over the cliff towards the woods. I'm assuming there not only near itachi but also near konoha. To my knowledge konoha is surrounded by forests so neither team is far away from each other.


http://www.corsasport.co.uk/carimages/6073/14.jpg

So team 8 eh? Only a matter of time before these guys got grouped together. Naruto being his usual self, not realising hes going accomplish nothing out of this mission. I just can't see them doing much to help the whole sasuke itachi thing. Which is why i'm probably going to predict them meeting up with tobi rather than itachi.

kadodo's review pointed something out to me which got me all excited though. Kiba was in the team with naruto at the sound 5 ark. Don't think theres been a reunion since. So to see them two work together again is really cool. Not only that but to see team 8's new ninjutsu's will be something to look forward to.

On a side note, everyone's expressions here were great. Brings back so many memories of the good times. Kiba looking serious, Shino calm and hinita looking kinda grown up actually. First she's looking her usual self, unconfident. But the image at the bottom she looks strong and calculated. Its going to be interesting!

I predict either a filler of the three teams shuffling about or a surprise next week. Of course i'm hoping its the latter.

4/5 (due to confusion mid way)

O.O That was some good rewiev you got there! Keep up the good work :thumbs

Well the cats actually scared the crap out of me, but i didn't read the spoilers ;). It's true what you say, it's probably nothing to be worked up about. I hardly believe that we'll se more cats in the near future.


8. Juugo is an easily pleased guy isn't he.
Well, if I had been imprisoned for atleast 3 years, I would be glad if I got anything. And yes, it's not like he'll keep it forever.

Yes! I get to see Hinata in action! I wonder what she's been doing during the timeleap

That was a very good review... Yeah the cats got me confused but I am assuming that it was just to push the mystery of the uchiha along... or something.
I like Juugo he seems so sweet which makes me feel sort of sorry for him :(

KIBA! One of my favorite characters, I cant wait to see him and Akamaru fight now that Akamaru is all giant compared to what he used to look like. OH! And Shino, which I hope we get to see him fight because Kishi really keeps Shino's fights so far really short and mysterious.. but I guess thats just to go with Shinos personality, no.

Good review kenpachi23! I agree that there was a resemblance between the city the leader revealed the goal of Akatsuki and the city Sasuke went to get his weapons, I did not realize that before.

and yeah, the cats were something else and they indeed confused me too since they were ninjas. Can they be summoned like kapun?

Oh yeah, did you guys realize something? Look in the last page of the last chapter, all the way at the bottom. Why do Kiba and Yamato look so much alike. I doubt there is a relation between them but I just had to point it out.

Kenpachi23, your very first review is not half bad, you did great :thumbs. Its possibility the two city buildings do look familiar, it maybe his permanent resident. :blink

I'm fairly certain it was a threat of some sort.

The cat asked what Sasuke brought as an offering, and Sasuke <offered> him confinement in a "return bottle" perhaps the cats have been roaming free since the Uchiha fell but were normaly only allowed to walk around when summoned?

IDK, that was my take anyway.

ah, nice view on it. That clears up a few things if its like that
