I guess I'm gonna write a second review. I loved this chapter as well, not as much as 354 but it was good enough. A lot of interesting things happened indeed

Thanks to Hisshouburaiken for his fast tranlation and thanks to Bludshock for his fast scanlation and also big thanks to Kylara who provided us with the raw.

And everyone's help are appreciated...

1)
And the search begins! Team Konoha is finally on the move. So they decided to start their research every five kilometers. If they don't find anything, they will look in another five kilometer. I think that it's a pretty good idea Kakashi came up with. They could not just go and look for Sasuke in random places. Since the teams are obviously in a hurry, separating the teams is indeed the quickest way for them to find a trace of Sasuke or the Akatsuki.

However, Sakura was smart enough to notice that they will be in danger by themselves and they won't be able to contact each other from their wireless equipments. (I wonder how they have wireless equipments, and I've never seen them with a car or any other modern stuff).Anyways, back on topic, Sakura is right, what if they meet with somebody from Akatsuki, they will be in danger and one person might not be able to hold an Akatsuki by itself. However, Kakashi was not stupid enough to send them one by one.

2)

And Kakashi summons all his dogs. Now, come on Sakura, I would not send you by yourself. All the dogs will be able to help. They have great sense of smell and hearing. Kakashi decides to send two of his dogs with each person. When you look at it, with the dogs, the teams will be able to smell a suspicious person from far away and in addition finding Sasuke's smell will be easier. The dogs also said something about the echoes of their voice. It means that if they hear a cry of danger the closest person will be able to come to the rescue immediately.

Sakura got two dogs plus her extreme power

Sai got two dogs (Since there is a theory about him being Suigetsu's brother, I wonder if he will meet him)

Shino got two dogs plus his bug abilities.

and since Kiba already has Akamaru, it would no problem for him to hear or smell any danger.

What about Naruto?

Since Naruto is targeted by the Akatsuki, it makes more sense that Yamato goes with him. Oh yeah, the lucky guy gets to go with Hinata as well because of her scouting abilities. So if he were to meet anybody suspicious, Hinata could tell him in advance and of course Yamato will be a great person to defend him and control his kyubi chakra in case it gets out of control. Oh yeah, it also seems that a certain dog named "Bull" will be accompanying Naruto as well because he's too loud. I thought that was kind of funny.

3)

Karin is definitely a big pervert. The moment she gets to be with Sasuke by herself, she goes crazy. ( I wonder what Suigetsu saw her do to Sasuke). However, we can see here that Sasuke was not in the mood to play her little game. He told her to move immediately because he had a mission to do and it was not the time for him to play games with a girl. However, what was Team Hebi actually doing in this place? I was happy to see that Suigetsu and Juugo answered the question for us.


http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/7617/12355rs1.png (http://imageshack.us)

Don't you guys love Suigetsu? Look at how he caught these guys in his sword. So, Sasuke is here in order to get information on the Akatsuki. We were shown that suigetsu got two guys who were supposing to be Hidan and Kakuzu's accountant and banker. They seemed so terrified by Suigetsu that they decided to talk right away. However, I wonder; even though they are the banker and accountant, they might not even have a clue or where the members of Akatsuki are located.

One other thing crossed my mind, we know that the Akatsuki is informed that Naruto's team finished Kakuzu and Hidan. Does Sasuke know about it? If you look at the pic above, Suigetsu says: "you WORK for akatsuki's kakuzu and Hidan". Why is Suigetsu using the present form? He talks as if they are still working for them, as if Hidan and Kakuzu are still alive. This is just my opinion but Kishimoto gave us no clue that Sasuke knew about Hidan and Kakuzu's defeat. If I'm right, Suigetsu will find out that Hidan and Kakuzu were killed in the next chapter.

We also see Juugo getting ready to get into action but I wish Kishimoto would have showed us whom he was going to ask the questions.

4)
So it seems that Tobi and Deidara are also on the move. I also wanted to point out that Deidara is saying "so far so good." When you look closely, it looks like the arm he lost in the battle with Kakashi was sewed back together. I guess he's not really used to it?

Now, I also realized that Tobi and Deidara were on the move but they went without even deciding which group they were going after. Tobi asking which one they were supposed to go after proves that they were still undecided.

5)

So one of the dogs found Sasuke's scent but it was faint. I would believe it's somewhere Sasuke went through the previous day. It could not be the city the Uchiha clan uses for the ir weapons because I do not remember seeing trees there. However, I'm pretty sure that they are not too far from each other.

One other reason that smell could be faint could be because of the rain before. The water could have somehow erased some of Sasuke's scent. So, I think that it is pretty normal for the dog not to get a strong scent and determine Sasuke's position.

Imagine if there were no rain, the dog could actually get a pretty strong scent, it could have even smelled every step that Sasuke made, but with the water the rain left behind it will totally different. Based on that only, I can assume that Team Hebi and Team Konoha are very close to each other.

6)

So the akatsuki (deidara) found them!. It seems that Tobi was very surprised. Heck I was surprised too. He found them very easily. That's just because he has the advantage of being in the air and also because he uses the one-eye binocular. So whom did he find? It seems that Deidara wanted to keep it a surprise and not tell Tobi anything. Instead he tells Tobi to follow him.

I have a pretty huge feeling that Deidara both found Sasuke and Naruto.


http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/6374/163552qw2.png (http://imageshack.us) http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/4584/17355gs0.png (http://imageshack.us)

I'm pretty sure Deidara did not say anything because he actually got both of the people he wanted at the same time. In both of these pictures there is someone observing Naruto and there is someone observing Sasuke. Those two guys behind the tree are definitely Tobi and Deidara. As the author already said that one of these guys is definitely Deidara, but which one did Deidara decide to go to? My guess is that he decided to go after Sasuke. The reason is pretty simple, he has a beef against Naruto for punching him and he has a beef against Sasuke for killing Orochimaru before him. However, he already fought with Naruto, there is a big chance that he will decide to go after Sasuke instead since he never fought him. A man that took down Orochimaru by himslelf is definitely worth fighting. Tobi after Naruto and Deidara after Sasuke. If my theory is true, it will be hard for Tobi to go after three guys (Naruto, Hinata and Yamato). Although it might be the contrary since we do not know his techniques that well. However, it will be truly amazing to see how Sasuke will fight against Deidara's techniques. And the best thing about it is that Sasuke is by himself with nobody to support him.

One of my predictions about this could be that Karin senses Sasuke's chakra rising and ask either Juugo or suigetsu for backup.


Rating for this chapter was 4 out of 5 because some questions were not answered.

As I already gave some of my predictions, I think Naruto will be fighting Tobi and Deidara will be fighting Sasuke.

about Suigetsu's present tense thing.. maybe you right or maybe something to do with the translation or not (it funny how everyone look so detail at every single hints)

i want to made another point, that w/o kazuku around no one will sew deidara's arm back again so he maybe more careful this time around and not as reckless.

I also believe that the akatsuki dispatched more than just dei.. and tobi...., so maybe one of those hidden people behind the tree could be itachi....

It would be funny if sakura found sasuke first, then it would be the catfight between her and karin (i'm rooting for sakura if thing come to first :rofl...)

anyway, anythings could happened... maybe the leader of akatsuki appeared and have a little chat with naruto... (it could be possible since orochimaru (one of the major villain) showed himself so early on...)

yeah I thought it might have something to do with the translation as well but I saw that all the other translators used the present tense as well.

About more akatsuki members, I don't think there are more. If Itachi was to come, everything would happen too fast.

There is a chance that Sakura might meet Sasuke first but I think she might help him in the fighting of his opponent. And I don't think is close to Sasuke for the moment. I think she might be questioning other people like Juugo and Suigetsu.

I guess we do, I had a good thought about it, though

Nice review Kadodo.

2. In my opinion, the best thing about the chapter is that we get to see the full pack of Kakashi's nin-dogs ready for action, not just Pakkun. Plus, the Hinata, Naruto, Bull combo (along with Yamato) should be worth a few laughs.

3. While the Akatsuki underlings seem to be chumps, Suigetsu at least handled them with style. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Also, you're right, Suigetsu probably wouldn't know that Kakuzu/Hidan are dead. It'll be interesting to see Sasuke's reaction once he hears that Naruto took down an Akatsuki member (granted, with help).

4. Does Deidara have both of his arms back now? Kakuzu sewing the one Kakashi warped off would make sense, but how did he get back the one Gaara crushed? Maybe I'm missing something.

Also, I agree that Deidara will most likely target Sasuke first. We could get to see an air to air battle if Sasuke's CS2 wings actually let him fly for an extended period.

Once last thing about this chapter that caught my eye. That statue shown of page 1 (and later page 6), could it possibly be the Yonbi (4 tailed bijuu)? The statue slightly resembles a rooster, and on page 6, it looks like it has 4 tails. I'm not an expert of the tailed beast legend, but its been stated that the Yonbi resembles a snake/rooster. With the old Jinchuuriki being captured recently, maybe this was Kishimoto's way of paying tribute to the legend/character... since the the old fella fought and died completely off-screen. Just an idea. I'd be interested in your take.

Nice review Kadodo.

Than you very much.

I liked the fact that we saw the nine dogs as well since I think the last time he released all of them was when Naruto and Sasuke were fighting. And yes, that lucky naruto, he gets two people (Hinata, Yamato) and a dog (Bull). I'm not sure if I'm right but it seems that the dog noticed somebody was behind them in page 16.


3. While the Akatsuki underlings seem to be chumps, Suigetsu at least handled them with style. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Also, you're right, Suigetsu probably wouldn't know that Kakuzu/Hidan are dead. It'll be interesting to see Sasuke's reaction once he hears that Naruto took down an Akatsuki member (granted, with help).

Yep, Suigetsu is like one of my favorite characters now. This guy goes straight to the point and he does not play around. I'm pretty sure Suigetsu does not know Kakuzu/Hidan are dead. It's probably the latest information they had on akatsuki that made them come here. Sasuke will probably say nothing except: " You got stronger Naruto"


4. Does Deidara have both of his arms back now? Kakuzu sewing the one Kakashi warped off would make sense, but how did he get back the one Gaara crushed? Maybe I'm missing something.


Also, I agree that Deidara will most likely target Sasuke first. We could get to see an air to air battle if Sasuke's CS2 wings actually let him fly for an extended period.

Just an idea. I'd be interested in your take.

I cannot really say about both arms but he definitely got his right arm back (see page 8). Deidara is definitely going after Sasuke. Based on his character he will go for the one he thinks is the strongest. And Sasuke fits the case since he already has a biff against him for taking Orochimaru.

About the statue, I never really noticed it before but I can only see a rooster resemblance, I do not see a snake resemblance at all. For more info about the yonbi, go hereFour Tails (Yonbi),
Sokou

Tale in the Legend of the Tailed Beasts: Sokou is a bijuu that looks like a reptile. It was a creature that lived near Mount Fuji. Because of the toxic gas and the volcaninc ash, he was transformed into a half-rooster, half-snake monster. The Rooster and Snake are husband and wife in Sokou’s body. Everything around it withers away or dies, because of its poison. According to the Legend, whenever he hibernates in Mount Fuji, the snoring he causes will make the volcano erupt.
Situation in the Ancient War of the 9 Gods: Battled 4 times; 3 Losses, 1 Flee
Losses: Shukaku, Kaku, Houkou
Escapes: Raijuu
Fate: Sokou was sealed by a master of demonic arts, called Yamazaki Ishiro, with the “Tool of power: Netted Moon Cage” to the seal in the Mount Fuji’s base. Sokou becomes unable to send out his poisonous gas from the mountain for all eternity.
Japanese Myth Appearance: A four-tailed Rooster / Snake mixture. The lower part of the body is a Snake, while the upper part is a Rooster. Crawls instead of walking (Just like desert scorpions *COUGH*Hiruko!Sasori*COUGH*). Most of the body parts have an orange tone. Lives in the mount Fuji.
Ability: Controls poison, poisonous gas, venoms, and so on.
Bijuu Strength Ranking: 9th
Bijuu Chakra/Stamina Ranking: 6th
Symbolic Element: Poison
Origin / Discovered in: Close to Tokyo, Mount Fuji.
Personal notes: Well, it indeed makes you remember of Sasori. Just a little.
More info about Sokou: If you remember, Sokou is the oriental counterpart of the folklore creature Cockatrice. Sokou doesn’t have wings like it, though.

We do see Juugo going into Curse Seal Mode, Sasuke left him alone is he losing control? (will someone from the Konoha group meet Juugo in CS?)

A dark figure stands behind Sasuke and Another Dark Figure stands behind Naruto.
Deidara stands behind one of the two, who is the other figure?
Perhaps behind Sasuke stands Sakura.
or Perhaps behind Naruto is a Curse Seal Juugo.

to start off, great review :D !!! are you planning on doing these regularly or are you just stepping in as GK has pretty much stepped down at the moment? either way i thank you wholeheartedly. in my experience, the reviews are where some of the best discussion occurs, so it would seem wrong for us to go without a review for Naruto chapters. depending on how my time looks, i may start it up as a 3rd review when i go home for summer (especially now that team 8 is finally back in the story :spaz ). now for my response

1 - Kakashi's strategy is in all actuality very well suited for the team as a whole now that team 8 is infused. as each of them (plus Kakashi) are exemplary tracking ninja, their speciality would be to sense the enemy before the enemy sensed them, thus allowing them to split up effectively as their preemtive response allows them to hide or run beforehand and contact the others. granted this leaves Yamato/Sai/Naruto/Sakura trying to adapt, but the only one impulsive enough to try anything stupid and out of the plan is in a larger group to keep him in check

2 - i like the groupings for this split. as Kiba/Akamaru and Kakashi/Pakkun are very accustomed to eachother, it is actually easier for them to work in pairs. Sakura, Shino, and Sai are each given two dogs to maximize their effectiveness, and Naruto is grouped with Hinata, Yamato, and Bull. the whole last team is formulated around Naruto's "target" status. Bull has the loudest voice of all the nin-dogs, so if he calls for aid, more ears will hear him, and thus more people can come to defend Naruto. Yamato's bijuu sealing ability has become pretty well integrated into his place in the team and why stop now. Hinata's Byakugan will allow her to see a threat coming more easily (and i'm sure NaruHina fans are going completely off-the-wall nuts as well). the thing that confuses me a bit is...when was everybody informed that Naruto was a Jinchuriki? at the start of the Rescue Gaara arc, the way Sakura talked about it sounded more like she found out on her own and i doubt she would have spread the knowledge without Naruto's permission. Outside of that, while the various teams were informed about the existance of Akatsuki, it was never referenced that Naruto's status had been revealed. this has just been irking me a bit and i should probably take it at face value.

3 - Sasuke's plan is now starting to unfold and he has sent his teammates around to fill their duties. i got a good giggle out of Karin's rejected fit of joy but also more than anything wanted to see what each person's role was.

this is the epitome of why Suigetsu is one of my favorite characters in the history of the series. he is just so badass and has the coolest personality i could ask for. i'm also looking forward to Sasuke learning that Naruto beat an Akatsuki in the near future. As for Juugo, he remains somewhat distant, but with his peaceful nature, i' wouldn't be surprised if he was talking to the bird (though possibly in a joking manner as he has no current leads at the moment).

4 - Its good to see Deidara and Tobi on the move. in regards to deidara's arm, it definately does not look natural and may have originally belonged to someone else (given Kakuzu's ability to attach other people's tissues effectively and the fact that deidara's arm was sent to another dimension with Kakashi's MS)

5 - i agree that the two teams are extremely close and prefer to think that it was the rain that weakened the scent, so following that weak trail would actually lead to Sasuke, but i'll come back to that thought later

6 - that was pretty fast for Deidara to atually find them, but as for who he actually saw, it's really anyone's guess. i personally think it is neither Sasuke nor Naruto. If he clashed with either of them, his demise would come way too soon for the start of an arc. i think he found Kakashi. i don't really have much basis for this other than the fact that Kakashi is probably the one person Deidara wants a shot as much as Naruto and Sasuke. also, the revealing of the new arm may have foreshadowed him once again meeting with the man who caused that damage. (also, i'm a fan of Obito=Tobi, which if true might play a role in the Akatsuki pair's temporary retreat so they don't de too early in the arc)

Now as for the mysterious figures behinf Naruto and Sasuke, i've got a different theory. i've already mentioned my idea of who Deidara went after and i also just can't see Deidara sneaking up on anyone from the shadows. its just not his style and it would also be more dramatic for him to be neither after the final line of this chapter.

i think the one behind sasuke is Sakura. she found his scent already and thus had a clue at his location. this is important because it would provide a conversation between her and Sasuke that reflects his true intentions unlike last time. after talking to him, the resolves of both her and Naruto would be hardened. really this is just my gut feeling, but we'll see if i'm right.

as for the one behind Naruto, i'm going with another gut feeling and believe it is Juugo. in his short scene this chapter, he clearly sensed someone powerful approaching as he started his CS and likely followed it to determine if it was a threat. I think him meeting Naruto would be an incredible device for the plot and character development. As Sakura hears about team Hebi from Sasuke, Naruto hears it from Juugo. in regards to character development, given Juugo's reason for joining Sasuke, i think it is invaluable for him to meet Sasuke's best friend. he can reminisce about his friendship with Kimimaro and have a newfound respect for Sasuke and Naruto as well. if i'm right about this, i swear i will dance in joy

Nice review yet again Kadodo!

It was rather neat to see the nin dogs with their own personality. It was a little humorous to see the dog with glasses go with Shino.

As for who is behind who, there have been numerous guesses as one would expect in the predictions thread. I think it is either Sakura or Kakashi that is behind Sasuke, more likely it's Sakura though because of the evidence in the manga (finding his scent).

That leaves Deidara to be behind Naruto, but I also like the theory of Juugo being behind Naruto. Either way Naruto's team should be aware of the presence of the stranger, even if the stranger is downwind of Bull. Hinata's Byakugan should have no trouble seeing the person from that distance.

I personally would love to start up a Naruto weekly review, but I am not very tech savvy, and am unsure of how to post pictures in the post and such. I may get in touch with you or sahugani to help and give me some pointers. Keep up the good work!

Sahugani- You are right. I didn't even realize it until you said it, but clearly everyone now knows that Naruto is a jinchuriki. I wonder when they decided to tell everyone and how that went over. Meh, it is irksome but I won't worry too much.

My Guess is Tsunade (or Kakashi with her permission) informed those who didn't know before the mission, in any pre mission briefing so they can all be aware of The Akatsuki's hunt for Naruto. (I wonder if Shikamaru's squad knows, they too may have been briefed, prior to their last mission)

Perhaps this will play out in a conversation between Hinata and Naruto, I can see Hinata asking Naruto Kun about being a Jinchuriki.

nice review.. But i still think naruto we saw walking with the bull,yamoto & hinita is all clones.. I just feel naruto is some where else waiting to see who attack is clones.

and i still don't see Itachi & kisame letting diedara or Tobi killing naruto or Sasuke. as much as he seems like he doesn't care about is brother.

Plus Jiriaya is still in the leaf village. i still think Jiriaya is watching what going on from a distance. plus Konamaru seems like a person that will try to sneak out of the leaf to follow naruto. suppose Konamaru henge as Naruto? just to prove is point that he deserve tog on on B rank mession?

these so many thing going through mind.. I also think its more possible Diedara could have spotted kakashi instead..

Thank You! I do not know if I'm gonna do it every week but I will whenever I have time. I am also looking forward to read your reviews since I know you always have great comments.


1 - Kakashi's strategy is in all actuality very well suited for the team as a whole now that team 8 is infused. as each of them (plus Kakashi) are exemplary tracking ninja, their speciality would be to sense the enemy before the enemy sensed them, thus allowing them to split up effectively as their preemtive response allows them to hide or run beforehand and contact the others. granted this leaves Yamato/Sai/Naruto/Sakura trying to adapt, but the only one impulsive enough to try anything stupid and out of the plan is in a larger group to keep him in check

I did not realize that Team 8 and Kakashi were tracking ninjas, I agree with you that Yamato/Sai/Naruto/Sakura will have to adapt on this mission since they cannot sense any danger themselves. So it was a good idea that Kakashi sent them with a dog.[


2 - i like the groupings for this split. as Kiba/Akamaru and Kakashi/Pakkun are very accustomed to eachother, it is actually easier for them to work in pairs. Sakura, Shino, and Sai are each given two dogs to maximize their effectiveness, and Naruto is grouped with Hinata, Yamato, and Bull. the whole last team is formulated around Naruto's "target" status. Bull has the loudest voice of all the nin-dogs, so if he calls for aid, more ears will hear him, and thus more people can come to defend Naruto.

Outside of that, while the various teams were informed about the existance of Akatsuki, it was never referenced that Naruto's status had been revealed.

Yes, I agree, Kiba and Akamaru are already used to each other and it will be very foolish to split them. Since Naruto is the one that is in greatest danger, I agree that they sent Bull with him. And Yamato is already used to Naruto by now, so he could help him with his bijuu sealing. I think that everyone found out about Naruto after he killed Kakuzu (just my guess)


3 - Sasuke's plan is now starting to unfold and he has sent his teammates around to fill their duties. i got a good giggle out of Karin's rejected fit of joy but also more than anything wanted to see what each person's role was.

this is the epitome of why Suigetsu is one of my favorite characters in the history of the series. he is just so badass and has the coolest personality i could ask for. i'm also looking forward to Sasuke learning that Naruto beat an Akatsuki in the near future. As for Juugo, he remains somewhat distant, but with his peaceful nature,

You gotta love Suigetsu, the guy is badaass as you said, he goes straight to the point. THere no more you could ask for. And yes, I'm waiting for what the reaction of Sasuke's going to be when he finds out that Naruto killed and Akatsuki. And yeah, I wonder whom Juugo is going to question. And what about Karin, what mission did Sasuke give her?


4 - Its good to see Deidara and Tobi on the move. in regards to deidara's arm, it definately does not look natural and may have originally belonged to someone else (given Kakuzu's ability to attach other people's tissues effectively and the fact that deidara's arm was sent to another dimension with Kakashi's MS)

Yeah, the arm definitely looks like it was sewed back together. As you already said, I doubt that the arm belongs to him.


5 - i agree that the two teams are extremely close and prefer to think that it was the rain that weakened the scent, so following that weak trail would actually lead to Sasuke, but i'll come back to that thought later

Yes, I think the rain is what caused the dog to have a weak scent of Sasuke. I wonder if Sakura will be the first one to meet Sasuke.


6 - that was pretty fast for Deidara to atually find them, but as for who he actually saw, it's really anyone's guess. i personally think it is neither Sasuke nor Naruto. If he clashed with either of them, his demise would come way too soon for the start of an arc. i think he found Kakashi. i don't really have much basis for this other than the fact that Kakashi is probably the one person Deidara wants a shot as much as Naruto and Sasuke. also, the revealing of the new arm may have foreshadowed him once again meeting with the man who caused that damage. (also, i'm a fan of Obito=Tobi, which if true might play a role in the Akatsuki pair's temporary retreat so they don't de too early in the arc)

Now as for the mysterious figures behinf Naruto and Sasuke, i've got a different theory. i've already mentioned my idea of who Deidara went after and i also just can't see Deidara sneaking up on anyone from the shadows. its just not his style and it would also be more dramatic for him to be neither after the final line of this chapter.

i think the one behind sasuke is Sakura. she found his scent already and thus had a clue at his location. this is important because it would provide a conversation between her and Sasuke that reflects his true intentions unlike last time. after talking to him, the resolves of both her and Naruto would be hardened. really this is just my gut feeling, but we'll see if i'm right.

as for the one behind Naruto, i'm going with another gut feeling and believe it is Juugo. in his short scene this chapter, he clearly sensed someone powerful approaching as he started his CS and likely followed it to determine if it was a threat. I think him meeting Naruto would be an incredible device for the plot and character development. As Sakura hears about team Hebi from Sasuke, Naruto hears it from Juugo. in regards to character development, given Juugo's reason for joining Sasuke, i think it is invaluable for him to meet Sasuke's best friend. he can reminisce about his friendship with Kimimaro and have a newfound respect for Sasuke and Naruto as well. if i'm right about this, i swear i will dance in joy

You have a totally different theory than mine on who are behind the trees. Some other people had thought it was Sakura as well. If it is her, I won't mind at all. I would prefer it was Deidara though, so we could see some great fighting skills.

About Juugo behind Naruto, I'm not too sure. You probably right since Kishimoto has decided not to tell us whom he were after.

However, I still believe that Deidara is after Sasuke or he's at least behind Naruto. Also, where do you think Tobi is?



Nice review yet again Kadodo!

It was rather neat to see the nin dogs with their own personality. It was a little humorous to see the dog with glasses go with Shino.

As for who is behind who, there have been numerous guesses as one would expect in the predictions thread. I think it is either Sakura or Kakashi that is behind Sasuke, more likely it's Sakura though because of the evidence in the manga (finding his scent).

Kakashi? Hmm, I guess it could be anyone, it might even be Sai for all I know. But what can we do, we just have to guess. But one of us has to be right, we'll find out later this week. XD!


That leaves Deidara to be behind Naruto, but I also like the theory of Juugo being behind Naruto. Either way Naruto's team should be aware of the presence of the stranger, even if the stranger is downwind of Bull. Hinata's Byakugan should have no trouble seeing the person from that distance.

I have a feeling that Naruto's tema knows somebody is behind them. If it is Juugo, that sure will be a problem because Team Hebi will be against team Konoha.


I personally would love to start up a Naruto weekly review, but I am not very tech savvy, and am unsure of how to post pictures in the post and such. I may get in touch with you or sahugani to help and give me some pointers. Keep up the good work!

Sahugani- You are right. I didn't even realize it until you said it, but clearly everyone now knows that Naruto is a jinchuriki. I wonder when they decided to tell everyone and how that went over. Meh, it is irksome but I won't worry too much.

NO problem, you may contact me, sahugani or any of the other mods. About them knowing about Naruto being a Jinchuuriki, I think it might be after the defeat of Hidan and Kakuzu....


My Guess is Tsunade (or Kakashi with her permission) informed those who didn't know before the mission, in any pre mission briefing so they can all be aware of The Akatsuki's hunt for Naruto. (I wonder if Shikamaru's squad knows, they too may have been briefed, prior to their last mission)

Perhaps this will play out in a conversation between Hinata and Naruto, I can see Hinata asking Naruto Kun about being a Jinchuriki.

I think that this is a good theory you have therem wykowsuki. It could be very possible that either Kakashi or Tsunade informed them about Naruto in case the Akatsukid decide to capture Naruto.


nice review.. But i still think naruto we saw walking with the bull,yamoto & hinita is all clones.. I just feel naruto is some where else waiting to see who attack is clones.

and i still don't see Itachi & kisame letting diedara or Tobi killing naruto or Sasuke. as much as he seems like he doesn't care about is brother.

Plus Jiriaya is still in the leaf village. i still think Jiriaya is watching what going on from a distance. plus Konamaru seems like a person that will try to sneak out of the leaf to follow naruto. suppose Konamaru henge as Naruto? just to prove is point that he deserve tog on on B rank mession?

these so many thing going through mind.. I also think its more possible Diedara could have spotted kakashi instead..

It could be very possible that all of them are clones and then they attack the stalke. However, I have a feeling that it won't be the case. About Konohamaru sneaking behind them, I don't think it's possible. Since they have team 8 and all Kakashi's dogs, I think they would have already noticed him.

And yes, Deidara could have spotted Kakashi...

Well, i don't think it’s possible for an AnBU, Hinita & Bull not recognize that someone is behind them. Plus if someone really sneaks up behind them it has to be Karin and her ability to hide her chakra. She’s like a ghost...

For the Konohamaru theory I just throw that in since he admires Naruto so much. And he always wants to do the most unpredictable things. E.g naruto and other realizes that he was following them and make clones. So he’ll follow them straight back to the village. Lol


plus if Diedara to spot anyone. it would be kakashi.. and trust me. it would be a unfair fight since its 2 against one.

WEll I know that Yamato, Hinata and Bull could definitely recognize if someone is behind them. However, I'm not sure when it was mentioned that Karin can hide her chakra. I know she can sense other people's chakra but as far as to hide it, I don't remember it being one of her abilities.

My guess was that Tobi was behind Naruto and the others and Deidara was behind Sasuke.

However, some people are thinking that Juugo or Karin is actually after Naruto and Kakashi or Sakura is after Sasuke. I think I might be wrong about Tobi being behind Naruto but I definitely think Deidara is after Sasuke.

Nice Review Kadodo.

Can Tell Me Why Tobi And Deidera Will Attempt To Kill Naruto While They Need Him Alive For The Bijuu Extraction ? Even If they Wanted to do So, I Dont Think The leader will let That Pass.

Well, It Was a nice Chapter Overall, I'm Really Looking forward to the next chapter. I Really like the Possibilities Of Fights kishi Left

Thats what i'm saying as well. the only way it being karin behind Naruto, she must have that ability to hide her chakra/ meaning smell etc..


as for who is behind who.. I think Diedara would be behind Naruto. just because i want him to.. Sasuke already fight so many people a while back. i want to see some good fight going on.. But if diedara ended up behind sasuke i still will feel good. but i know itachi going to get a roll soon.

well, i'm not saying actually killing him. but Itachi or the leader wouldn't want diedara to go after Naruto, when they already mention the balance of the Bijuu Extraction statue should go by order. and well all know that at least 2 bijuu hasn't been catch as yet. so what you think? we all know if he fight naruto he going to bring him back like garra and if he doesn't take the bijuu out of him in time. the kyubbi going to be release and it going to be trouble.

plus we haven't seen itachi in battle mode with naruto. and i think kishi going to want to show at least that.

Perhaps this will play out in a conversation between Hinata and Naruto, I can see Hinata asking Naruto Kun about being a Jinchuriki.

After re-reading the chapter, the Jinchuuriki comment struck me as odd and I was going to write something about it, however, Sahugani was on top of it already.

I think your explanation makes sense. It would most likely be part of the mission briefing since Kakashi just blurted it out and nobody said, "what in the heck is a Jinchuuriki?"

But since this was previously a taboo subject, it's just surprsing to see it brought up, especially in front of people who aren't part of Naruto's inner circle (Kiba, Hinata, Shino...even Sai).

By the way, I don't think Tsunade/Kakashi ever officially stated what rank this mission is. It's at least an "A" rank, and most likely an "S" given their target.

and yes! It obvious that Kakashi told team 8 about Naruto being the Jinchuuriki. Because thats the only way he could gather that team to join is team.

Sai was apart of the team from going after sasuke in part 2.. I'm just explain some stuff. so not to taken the other way.

Thanks Karma. Yeah, the "Jinchuurki" question and the "S" rank were definetly something that could be infered. I just felt they were worth discussing as things can sometimes be ambigous if not explained by Kishimoto...the Jinchuuriki question at least. However, I can understand him not wanting to waste space explaining how everyone now knows what a Jinchuuriki is, and that Naruto is one of them. That's all.

You welcome....

You know when naruto went out on that misson to rescue sasuke in part 2 is nothing more than a "S" misson. why? because sasuke is around Orochimaru. and He's above "S" rank..
Garra rescue is a "S" rank mission too.


I think Naruto was made to take high rank mission.. Plus you all ways watch how Kakashi allways watching naruto? like he doesn't know when naruto going to snap?

anyone that tell me that kakashi can kill naruto is kidding me.. Because Naruto in Kyuubi mode is too much for kakashi...lol i can just imagine what jiriaya went through..

Nah, that's cool just wanted to make it clear... Right now i cant pronounce myself but if The kyubbi happened to get released right now, I Dont think there's any shinobi who can stand up to him. Naruto took down the one tailed without going kyubbi so It just let you think about the 9 tail's power

Garra rescue is a "S" rank mission too.

Yeah, I think we all agree that the current mission is an "S" rank.

The Sasuke rescue mission was an "A" rank mission, per Kakashi. The Gaara rescue mission was definetly an "S" rank mission. Not sure what the "Revenge for Asuma" back-up mission would be considered (again, really not that important, but still interesting).

Not to get too off-topic, but...

Here's what a Naruto information website has for Naruto's mission breakdown. I beleive this came from second databook, so it doesn't include the Gaara resuce mission.

Missions Completed
D-Rank: 7
C-Rank: 1
B-Rank: 1
A-Rank: 2
S-Rank: 0

Naruto's had a limited number of missions in his ninja career, given that he spent 2.5 years "training" and not on official duty. Pretty impressive for a Genin. Which, obviously makes sense if you think about it. Kishimoto's story wouldn't be too popular if Naruto's missions consisted of walking dogs, picking up trash, and escorting people around.

Given that he's had so much experience with high ranking missions, it would explain why nobody questions that a Genin (even a very powerful one like Naruto) is on an S rank job.

I doubt that Team 8 (Kiba, Hinata, Shino) have been on an S rank mission before, given their status as Chuunins. This current mission is most likely the highest level they've ever been tasked with.

Great comments kadodo... you really stay alert >.> I don't know what's next for me; I wouldn't mind moving on but I got a fill of Seinen from Evangelion "in my own way" >.> The last Naruto chapters have shown me little darkness beyond how "the Hawk" sadistically embraced "the Snake" right after a very classic Chapter (344)... yeah I don't know what to say. How do you stay focused... ?

@ MadDog:

Firstly, about Naruto's Mission Log: LOL

Next, how ironic.... A Genin, you say, should (by no surprise) take on S-Rank missions---but a group of Chuunin, who rank above Genin, perhaps never touched an S-rank list of missions to even contemplate their "challenge." I admit... that's pretty funny to me.

At last, I reflect: Do I sense an overall mocking tone?

Yeah, it is kind of funny, when you think about it. I guess that's just the reality that Kishimoto's created for Naruto and his peers. Mission ranks had relevance at the start of the story, but not so much anymore. I can be sarcastic at times, but I was really just trying to look at the facts this time around.
