First and foremost, 306 goodies. Get them all here.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this chapter, finally the person we have all been waiting to show his face for more than one year appears with a new appearence. No doubt about it, Uchiha Sasuke is back in business. After so much upgrade from Orochimaru from the trainings in the past 2.5 years, where is his level now? Also, more importantly, what business does he have this time around with Naruto? What is the thing behind his back? Katana? Some wooden stick? What role will Sakura, Sai, Orochimaru, Yamato and Kabuto play for the coming chapter? Will it be only talk and no action or will these two once-best-friends repeat their match in the Valley of Death? If yes, who will triumph? Who will fail ? So many questions. So much thrill. What will happen? Predict away.

Its time for some genjutsu! Nighty night Sakura!!! Your ass is going to be the first to pass out! Sasuke is going to kick the shit out of them. Yamato for some reason isn't going to participate in fighting Sasuke. He didn't seem to following them at the end.... Oro will probably tell him watch or he'll become his Genin Pig! You know that old ploy!!!

i think seeing Sasuke will trigger everything Jiraiya taught Naruto for the past 2.5 years.
now Naruto we'll show how good he's gotten and he's gonna fight Sasuke without Kyuubi.
but i can almost spell another tie between Sauke and Naruto!

The Awesome battle with the Same Result!!!
When can these two break the cycle!?!
Next Chapter: Battle of the Excellent Ninjas Witnessed!!!!

well with the condition naruto is in, i don't think its time for an epic battle between naruto and sasuke... sai can't match up so ... yamato and sakura ... i think its time for sasuke to see the sakura that defeated sasori... and for him to be shocked ... :P but then again maybe its not time for a real battle to happen either ... something will interrupt them?

I just don't understand how this supposed genius doesn't know that Orichimaru only wants his body and is just basically training him and keeping him "happy" till its time to switch. Didn't Naruto or someone tell him that, or was he dead in the basket at the time, and he's none-the-wiser?

But either way, he's smart...I'm sure he could figure out that a guy like Orochimaru doesn't exactly "give" unless there's alot to "take" back for himself.

Anyway, I agree the next chapter is either going to be alot of talk between Naruto/Sasuke (and maybe Sakura) or a lot of flashbacks...but we can't forget that Orochimaru is still on the way to kill Sai.

So, my guess 307 will be some small talk between Sasuke and Naruto (and maybe Sakura too), and then Orochimaru's arrival, and the end of Sai's life either 307 or 308, after Naruto/Sakura/Yamoto find out his real intentions. (Eventhough I like Sai quite a lot...I don't see him surviving much longer...Orochimaru is out to kill him, and even if he makes it back to Konoha, I don't think his superior is going to like his failure on his Top-Secret mission.) But, needless to say, I'm hope I'm way wrong, and Sai survives. :p

I DEFINATELY can't wait for the next few chapters. Its been a while since its gotten this damned exciting.

hmmm how the chapter ends is a little weird.  It says that sasuke is staring down at them with serenity while they look up to him passionately, yet just a while ago he got pissed off that sai was waking him up from his sleep for merely bonds - a little weirded out by the transition as to the exact nature of sasuke's character... if sasuke is calmed down by the presence of sakura and naruto, what does this suggest?

Interesting.
Maybe because he knows Naruto and Sakura. It's not like he knows Sai anyway. That should explain why he acted so hostilely towards Sai and yet he looked at Sakura and Naruto with serenity.

Yeah...eh, I hope Sasuke and Naruto planned something together back after the conclusion of the fight at the Valley of the End...well, not "planned something together", but something along the lines of Sasuke saying:

"Naruto...once I have the power to kill my brother, I'll come back."

I doubt it, but hell, I can hope can't I? I didn't like the old Sasuke at all, but this new one is turning out to be pretty awesome...I still think Sai's going to die very soon. Orochimaru will probably appear from under him/behind him and end his life quickly...or he'll just toy with him till he gets bored. (I still hope not...)

I'm thinking something along the same lines. Sasuke will explain to Naruto that he is going to kill his brother and he won't let anyone, even Naruto stop him.

I don't think Naruto would stop him, and Sasuke has to realize/remember that Itachi is after Naruto...so if he hangs around Naruto again, that's his best (and quickest) bet to kill Itachi. I think its more accurate to say, "He won't let anyone, even Naruto, stand in the way for his persuit of power." Which is why he went to Orochimaru.

And eh, we all knew that his new look would not please everyone. I'm lovin' it. I like it ALOT better than his shorts and short sleeved shirt. He looks bad ass...lets just hope (for those of us that like this look) he's grown in power enough to match his new look.

spankage indeed!  XD  though, i recall a time when naruto was blessed with at least 18 pages and they all had at least a few full sentances on them...T-T  WHAT THE HEEEEEECK...*sniffle*  bah

so...um...i think orochimaru will show up and tell sasuke to go kill akatsuki for him, either that or he'll tell sasuke to show his talent by killing sai, which of course, sasuke would do, and naruto would yell at him, sakura would punch him, and yamoto would glare at him with the scary glare, which sasuke would return it to him with spades...and on and on and on...lol  its too early for me to make a decent prediction...XP[br]Posted at: May 11, 2006, 12:34:17 PM_________________________________________________and yeah...his new outfit...folks, before you say it sucks ...remember the body suit.

Hey i think that in next events (not necessarily next chapter) Orochimaru will try to get Sasuke's body but Sasuke will betray him. (I SENCE OROCHIMARU'S DEATH)

DarkManSharingan32
May 11, 2006, 02:58 PM
Ahh, here comes my prediction... (they may spill over into the next few chapters)

Mostly talking, and catching up between the three future Sannin...
Sai will mostly likely satand his guard, while Sasuke reiterates Sai's true meaning to taking on Sasuke...

Sasuke: "... did you sent that idiot in to rescue me... naruto, i thought you cared... kukuku"

Soon, Yamato will join them... and not too long after that, And listen in on the conversation.
Sasuke will hop down, and begin talking to him face-to-face... and eventually with throw out a pretty low insult at Naruto... As if someone hit a restart button on the whole Team 7 relationship....

Naruto will get pissed... Sakura (who hasn't said a word yet)... will step in front...
Sasuke: ohh? Sakura, just what are you do-
~Sakura SLAMS Sasuke back into the wall~

Then Sakura goes off on her own little tangent... probably with some yelling, and Sasuke will eventually stand up...
Orochimaru appears, with his laugh... appearently enjoying the little scene.

From here... a small scuffle, and it will end with Oro getting his hands on Sai, somehow....
Pshh... the best thing i can think of, is that Sai has a new technique that Oro wants... and you know what that means...
----
Anyways... i feel like this whole thing will be inturrupted.... COME ON AKATSUKI!!!

it is amazing about sasuke but i have problem with Sasuke , becasue Sasuke is calm after feud with sai , i know Naruto is worn out after battle with orc and Saukra is weak after battle puppet , i have question , why Sai help Naruto for bond

Sauske will leave again from Naruto, and Saukra again! it is possible Saukra and Naruto will hinder by Akastbui or Orc

Hey i think that in next events (not necessarily next chapter) Orochimaru will try to get Sasuke's body but Sasuke will betray him. (I SENCE OROCHIMARU'S DEATH)
I'd hope so...but I doubt it will be so soon. Probably be quite a while still...although, if he does loose Sasuke, no doubt he'll be pissed and might try to take down Konoha again.

And besides, still another half a year before he can steal Sasuke's body, no?

I like DarkManSharingan32's prediction...it kind of falls in line with mine I think. That'd be a good way for it to go. I don't think they're going to kill off the (arguably) most popular character in the series (that'd be suicide, and they'd probably lose alot of Sasuke' fanatics...and hell, after waiting for Sasuke for what? A year? Having him die so soon? That'd be so anticlimactic, they'd revolt...), so this way works. I personally hold to the fact he's coming back. Would be nice to see things go like that in the next few chapters...except the Sai thing! I like him quite a bit. :(

But you're right about the jutsu thing...Orochimaru IS collecting all the jutsu in the world, and Sai has a unique style that I doubt Orochimaru has acquired yet (his whole drawings come to life style thing)...so, Orochimaru must have some sort of interest in him, or more accurately, his jutsu.

Well, Sasuke doesn't know Sai at all, so, being woken up by a stranger sticking his nose into someone else's business, would be quite annoying...

Naruto, also has that effect on people. Its a "gift" that he was given to be able to change people's hearts...and with Sai interacting with Naruto, saw his Brother in Naruto...and since Sai's brother died, he wants to see what happens between Naruto and Sasuke, and my guess see if bonds can stand up to something like this. (afterall, he lost the only bond he ever had).

And finally, we do not know yet what will happen between Sasuke/Naruto/Sakura. He only left Konoha because he was driven by revenge and the lust for enough power to kill his brother and revive his clan. We have to wait and see if he has compeltely lost it, or if he still has his ambitions intact, and will come "back" with the power he gained by using Orochimaru.

Yes, but when it comes to Sasuke, Orochimaru can't really afford to not give him what he wants. He doesn't want to have to hurt/kill Sasuke, because he covets the Sharingan so much, and he certainly doesn't want Sasuke to run off...and now that Naruto/Sakura are back in the picture with Sasuke, its a gamble as to which way Sasuke is going to lean.

On the other hand, I refuse to believe that Sasuke doesn't at least have some idea of why Orochimaru has trained him so far...all Sasuke ever wanted was power, and when he believes its sufficient, he's not going to stick around. He couldn't care less about Orochimaru's goals and vision. He just wants power to kill his brother.

Yes, "oro" is a "serious mothercracker" and "hes serious business", but even for someone like him, its not hard to be blinded by desire...and right now, he is dying to get his own Soul in Sasuke's body. (His current body is rejecting him...and its probably quite painful too.) It could prove to be part of his downfall.

Either way, until proven otherwise, I want to believe this new [kick ass] Sasuke will come back to Konoha and Team 7.

May 11, 2006, 05:39 PM
I think it's obvious what is going to happen next: Naruto is in no condition to bring Sasuke back and will despair about this. Sakura will also despair and will go ..... and look Sad and Regretful then she will look Angry. Sai, doing what Naruto converts do best, will believe he 'owes' Naruto one and will attempt to drag Sasuke back kicking and screaming on Naruto's behalf instead. Then Sai will die because of his noble action (at the hand of Sasuke) and this will be a Great Sacrifice. After that, Naruto should Get Angry and bring out ol' Fox...but if that happens...then I will despair and wonder if Kishi really cares anymore.

It's completely obvious the next chapter is gonna be mainly talk.

And that person who called Sasuke fat is blind. He looks more built, tall, strong rather than "fat". ¬_¬

I love how Sasuke saw Sakura first.... "Sakura ka?" OMG... I must have fainted. [SasuSaku fangirl.]

Buh?? How's his body rejecting him? No sign o tht tbh.
To me, this entire thing's cracked up to become a loss for Team 7. Naruto's used up ALL his chakra "Think I've just about enough for another taijun kage bunshin" etc. So think i'd count him out of anything that does happen. Sakura's not suffering after the puppet match, she's rockin...even if she did faint on the bridge. So I'm of the Sak/Sas fight club :)
I'm waiting for the line "Huh, come to think of it, I've never fought against you before Sakura" in a mirror of the 3 Sanin fight way back in part 1.
Yamato's being the smart ninja. Sitting back, assessing the situation rather than jumping straight into a fight (See Naruto getting mocked for jumping into Haku's Ice trap). But somehow i picture oro popping up to slow him down right when he needs to jump in and save someone...which leads me onto...Sai!
Think Sai may prove more useful than we think. I get the impression he'd sacrafice himself (slow death at the end of the fight obviously!), to save Nar/Sak...or maybe even Sasuke? Hmmm

And finally...people have mentioned Akatski...but no one's said Itatchi yet...hmmm.... Naruto is his target....and it'd certainly turn the fight around a fair bit.

*yawn* too late in the evenin for all this!

He says he's being rejected himself, at least by that translation...and so it looks too, considering it doesn't seem Orochimaru tried that hard in that fight, but still had no energy to stand after the fight.


And finally...people have mentioned Akatski...but no one's said Itatchi yet...hmmm.... Naruto is his target....and it'd certainly turn the fight around a fair bit.
Sasuke knows that Itachi is after Naruto (he heard it straight from Itachi)...so there's still the chance Sasuke might go with them just so he gains the opportunity to face Itachi, you know? Sasuke isn't stupid...and that's the easiest way to encounter Itachi one would think.


Think Sai may prove more useful than we think. I get the impression he'd sacrafice himself (slow death at the end of the fight obviously!), to save Nar/Sak...or maybe even Sasuke? Hmmm
Yeah, Orochimaru said he was going to go after Sai...and as much as I hate it, I think his fate is sealed. Ahhh, I'm sure his death will be heart felt, and Naruto will loose control, and Yamoto won't be able to hold back the Kyuubi and Naruto rampages and blah blah blah...that sort of thing. :p

i hope that we dont get a full chapter of naruto trying to convince sasuke to come back... and if naruto should try this then i hope sasuke will just stop him with a nice new jutsu :D

I would wish the reverse ^^

I believe that oro isn't really looking for sai at this real moment, if team 7 succeed to enter their hideout something must have happen to kabuto, so i wonder if he isn't going to free him first... Of course i'm sure they will only talk about the situation...but chapter 308 sure will have a big surprise!!

And i don't think naruto is truly at his limit, i mean he'll use kyubi eventually...I don't see sai/yamato dying that would be lame...I agree on most things jabbament said . ;) (appart kyubi and sai's death)
That's all.

Does sasuke got a sword on his back?

King
May 11, 2006, 07:53 PM
the thing that seems most likely is that sai and naruto will team versus sasuke, because sai wants to observe sasuke's bonds with naruto and naruto obviously wants to do something - unclear what, really - with sasuke haha. Sakura and Yamato will fight against Orochimaru who will show up promptly - hard not to when a fucking explosion blows up your base lol. So basically it's back to the formation with team 7 vs akatsuki, 4on2, which seems to be a pretty good matchup. I mean, it worked against akatsuki, didn't it? So I would give it not bad odds against a former akatsuki and his pupil sasuke. Sure, sai is probably not as strong as kakashi, but then kakashi was pretty much soloing deidara - naruto didn't do much cause of his mostly close-range abilities. so yea, should be exciting to see what's gonna happen. I doubt orochimaru would be freeing kabuto at this point as like I said before, a freaking explosion just blew his hidden base to the surface haha, so definitely 4on2.

The next chapter is going to be talk, it has to be some form of dialog before things get heated and start getting good. I think Naruto will be silent the whole time the next couple of chapters, even when Sasuke insults him. I think this will tick Sasuke off seeing that Naruto hasn't responded to his insults like he used to when he was younger.

I believe Sakura will be the one who do all the talking and so forth, Sai will of course be caught off guard by Orochimaru, and Yamato has to help Sai. Which proves interesting because when they began their training the shot of Naruto and Sai doing the Rasengan. Ya I want to see that. I don't think Sai is going to die, but I know he will be injured severly. Sakura will fight Sasuke and impress him with her skills, but it isn't good enough.

Yamato and Orochimaru will be too busy fighting one another to worry about Sasuke and Naruto. So they have a stand off which lasts a couple of chapters, before finally fighting. They fight and neither use their extra powers. They are on equal grounds, I think Sasuke will go curse seal, and Naruto stay in his normal form. Finally going Kyuubi, I have a feeling he will go to either two or three tails.

Itachi is watching at a distance with Kisame's psychotic self standing next to him. Hehe..I love Kisame he's so freaking awsome, he's just nuts. I swear he's Itachi's perfect partner..>.>..*ahem* Sasuke see's that Naruto has become much stronger, and he does the justsu he learned. Naruto pulls the surprise jutsu and impresses Sasuke. Itachi attacks, Sasuke tries to kill Itachi and fails.

He nearly dies when Naruto saves him, this clicks when Naruto finally get's kidnapped after his chakra is eaten, but he hurts Kisame and Itachi badly by his fourth tail. This time it's Sasuke's turn to go after Naruto to save him, and this will help the arch of him returning to Kohona because he finally get's Itachi, but I know he won't kill Itachi. Regardless of what he wants or does, he won't kill his brother, as why Itachi hasn't killed him. It will all play out sooner or later, but for now it won't be seen.

Orochimaru will succeed in getting Sasuke's body, but I believe that Naruto was taught another jutsu that will seperate Orochimaru from the host, but of course this won't happen till way down the line. And Orochimaru will not die at all, if he does then that is stupid. He's like the driving force behind the series, because he's the first main bad guy, and he will out last the Akatsuki. So Oro might end up taking over Kabuto if all things come down to it, and Sasuke dies at the hands of Itachi or even the Akatsuki. So either way Orochimaru will live on, he really is immortal.

Sasuke is going to repeat himself to Naruto by saying he's not going back to Konoha. Not as long as Itachi is still alive he won't do that. Naruto then says that he wants to help Sasuke with Itachi. Then Naruto offers himself as bait to lure Itachi out. Then Sasuke says its his battle and for Naruto to stay out of it. Then Naruto says he doesn't want to see Sasuke go down his path alone anymore and says hes going to help whether Sasuke likes it or not. Naruto says that Sasuke acknowledged him so he wants to prove his worthiness by being by his "brother's" side.

307= Alot of Conversation between the former Team 7 Members.

Itachi is watching at a distance with Kisame's psychotic self standing next to him. Hehe..I love Kisame he's so freaking awsome, he's just nuts. I swear he's Itachi's perfect partner..>.>..*ahem* Sasuke see's that Naruto has become much stronger, and he does the justsu he learned. Naruto pulls the surprise jutsu and impresses Sasuke. Itachi attacks, Sasuke tries to kill Itachi and fails.

He nearly dies when Naruto saves him, this clicks when Naruto finally get's kidnapped after his chakra is eaten, but he hurts Kisame and Itachi badly by his fourth tail. This time it's Sasuke's turn to go after Naruto to save him, and this will help the arch of him returning to Kohona because he finally get's Itachi, but I know he won't kill Itachi. Regardless of what he wants or does, he won't kill his brother, as why Itachi hasn't killed him. It will all play out sooner or later, but for now it won't be seen.

Orochimaru will succeed in getting Sasuke's body, but I believe that Naruto was taught another jutsu that will seperate Orochimaru from the host, but of course this won't happen till way down the line. And Orochimaru will not die at all, if he does then that is stupid. He's like the driving force behind the series, because he's the first main bad guy, and he will out last the Akatsuki. So Oro might end up taking over Kabuto if all things come down to it, and Sasuke dies at the hands of Itachi or even the Akatsuki. So either way Orochimaru will live on, he really is immortal.

Great first post. I like the idea of Akatsuki showing up forcing an alliance between Oro and Team7, which could liead to a false reunion of Team 7.

In this chapter, finally the person we have all been waiting to show his face for more than one year appears with a new appearence. No doubt about it, Uchiha Sasuke is back in business. After so much  upgrade from Orochimaru from the trainings in the past 2.5 years, where is his level now?  On par with naruto but unlike naru he'll show it.


Also, more importantly, what business does he have this time around with Naruto? None he's still after his brother but they should fight in the next cupple of chapters and hopefuly we'll get to see what naruto learned from jirayra in the last 2.5 years as stated by UzumakiRoman *sigh* don't let me down naru.


What role will Sakura, Sai, Orochimaru, Yamato and Kabuto play for the coming chapter?  Oro and yamato will watch whats happening. Then oro will interject and kill sai when he comes to the aid of naru and this is after they see that sai didn't back stab them. Kabu will free himself and join in the fun.

Will it be only talk and no action or will these two once-best-friends repeat their match in the Valley of Death? If yes, who will triumph? Who will fail ? Imo no cuz saku will be there and sai is there plus naru is week unless he gose kb4 which i don't want. Naru has more to offer then this which is why i think we got to see nine-tails so early on in the time skip. There's gonna be a whole lot of talking here. Sasu will piss naru off. He's not gonna go back with them piss naru off some more and make saku cry also. She'll try to punch sasu but sasu the bad ass he should be will knock her on her ass. Oro and yamato will be watching still 'till things get hot.  Akatsuki might show face and watch (hidden). Itach should be one of members watching

(on a side note: I'm glad we got to see sasu. It's about time this was draged on far to long. Now we can move the plot along)

I think Oro will appear and say something to Sasuke. But he'll just ignore him, consider Team 7 as enemies and attack without reservation.

Interesting to see that Naruto is low on chakra already. He'll prolly not use Kyuubi though and will be defeated. Meanwhile Sai will most likely die in battle, while Yamato is busy dealing with Oro.

Then at the end of it all, Naruto will curse the fact that he didnt use Kyuubi to save Sai.

no way oro is weaker than sasuke. why would sasuke still wandering around oro if he's stronger?
he would probably have killed kabuto and oro now


he can still be strong but might not know as many justsu..... as oro does

also i think oro even said himself on the bridge that sasuke is stronger and more troublesom then himself.......

SacredNic
May 12, 2006, 08:41 AM
heh, yeah I'd say that Sasuke is Oro's bitch, cos the Curse Seal probably means that at any time Oro can take control of his body. I recall that Anko was also powerless under Oro and she had the same seal.

I think Naruto's first words will be 'Hey Sasuke, you havent changed one bit!!', which will piss Sasuke off :tem

May 12, 2006, 08:52 AM
that was beacuse of his pressance..... the cursed seal eats off the chakra of the user if its incomplete was it not? remember how much pain sasuke was in when ever he tried to use it? were getting off course now ... lol

i say sasuke is going to jump down and walk up to naruto and sakura and she is going to hit him in the nose and hes going ask her what the hell was that for and shes going to stand there and smile and act inocent

i'm not sure about sasuke being stronger than orochimaru haha... I mean, orochimaru hasn't really shown off any cool offensive jutsu, but that triple rashoumon defense against kb4 was pretty impressive... each of those gates was at least as big as gama bunta - not eve comparable to the mini-rashoumon that one of the sound summons against kiba - and if you think about it, gama bunta X 3 = alot of chakra... haha

it was a real fight, oro did what he could,wich wasn'nt enough.

also oro did say that sasuke was stronger than him.

if your oro wouldn't you want a container thats' stronger than your current( can't beat your enemies who are all just about and stronger than your current self), that you can take over thier body whenever you choose.

also if sasuke is weeker than oro he's definately weeker than itachi, meaning oro is never going to get sasuke's body, because he would have been killed by itachi..like oro said have patience,..you have sasuke

May 12, 2006, 02:54 PM
I think you guys forgot an important thing, the cursed seal, it gives a real advantage to oro because it can immobilise its target leaving orochimaru free to take "anyone"....now to know if sasuke is too strong for oro to even control him with the cursed seal that's another story; at least up until now he wasn't strong anough to kill both of them.

man, i bet yamato is going to stay out of site and use mokuton to capture sasuke from beneath him, and he will but bust out, or avoid it in a way that really impresses people. Then orochimaru might come out towards the end or in 308. I also think that narutos weakness at the moment could be a set up for his super jutsu, and he almost kills himself from exhaustion in a last effort to get sasuke, but that probably be for a few chapters. Sasuke may get away, with naruto in bad condition, then after recovering will get info from jiraiya and go after itachi and run into sasuke there as well, where soon after sasuke will betray oro, but im getting ahead of myself.

First, Naruto is not a shadow clone. The panel where he tripped and smacked the ground would have vaporized him.

I think Sasuke is going to ask Naruto why he constantly finds himself in the company of people who betray him, *laugh*

I also think Sasuke can summon snakes now, I think his long shirt is hiding the tatoo Oro has on his left arm that lets him summon them.

But onto immediate matters. I too think there will be talking. They haven't seen eachother for 2.5 years, and you had better believe a day hasn't gone by where Naruto hasn't tried thinking of what his first words would be to Sasuke.

Naruto will say something similar to, "We've come to bring you home". To which Sasuke will say, "You still don't get it Naruto, I have no home" Or alternatively, some lines on bonds and friendship. And Sasuke will tell Naruto he has no friends. Which is going to piss Naruto off.

Yamoto is gana get knocked the hell out some how. When he does, his supression of Naruto's Nine Tail's Chakra is going to end, and the chakra is going to gush nearly replinishing his strenth in an instant.

When Sakura sees Naruto turning shes going to act. Shes going to try and take down Sasuke before Naruto has a chance to turn (It's pretty obvious she hates to see him become that monster) She will fail.

Oh but we must not forget Sai. He suffers gay sasuke overload and has a heart attack. end of character. before he dies he draws a picture of a penis.

Oro, is stopped by Yamoto. Yamoto gets knocked out. The bushin melts, as do Kabuto's bonds.

The chapter ends with Naruto regaining full strength. Sasuke stairing at Naruto turning, Sai drooling on the ground, Oro looking on, Yamoto dreaming of wood on the ground, Sakura on the ground, and Kabuto standing up watching.

I don't think Naruto is going KB4 when he turns, I think hes just going to go KB0, no tail, but the red aura, and sharp teeth and red eyes. That way we see Naruto Jutsu, not, KB4 wtfpwn everything that moves.

i think that's interesting, however i think we underestimate how crafty Jounin can be!
i think that seed he gave Naruto to track him will also help supress Kyuubi chakra from inside.
that way Yamato doesn't have to keep his eye on Naruto 100% of the time!!!

Huh? Do you remember the first time Naruto used his KB effectively? It was against Zabuza... And his KB skidded for like 25 feet before it dispelled. That was about 5 years ago... and i like to think that a little stumble like that wouldn't effect Naruto's main move.

If Naruto were too far away, it might... But if he had any proximity to the KB when it did that, i think it would be just fine.
---

Now, about Yamato...
Come on man, this is finally building to a point where we can actually see Yamato fight. If you remember, not too long ago Sakura got knocked out, and Yamato was held to a stalemate, and forced to watch the Oro vs. Naruto...

The point is mainly this... They are gonna have to go home sometime, and when they do...Kakashi will take his rightful place in Team 7, and who knows where Yamato will end up. SO... hopefully he will not get knocked out, but rather we see him fight someone seriously.
---

Finally... about this whole Chakra Supression thing Yamato is doing...
If i remember correctly... After using his chakra in such a manner, Naruto usually takes A FULL DAYS REST to fully recover his chakra. I think he's just at the point now where he is using up the last of it, and it has nothing to do with Yamato limiting his access to Kyuubi Chakra. (remember, It's only been a few hours at the most since he used Kyuubi Lv 4....where Naruto himself gets slightly injured to produce that technique...

May 13, 2006, 09:59 AM
I highly doubt anyones gonna fight this chapter, naruto is no match for sasuke at this point. He constantly keeps complaining about the pain, so there is no way he's gonna fight sasuke. Either Sasuke gets captured by Yamato, or Sakura might try and knock some sense into him. I really doubt either of these things are gonna happen in the next chapter. What I really wanna see though before this arc is over, is a Sakura/Slug vs Sasuke/Snake battle which I'm sure they both can summon at this point. Sakura isn't a push over, even though she had help, don't forget she killed Sasori.


Everyone keeps saying Naruto's going to regain his strength, HOW????? They have never shown him go 4 Tails before and he's still injured, this isn't dragonball z where you can just eat a bean and regain your strength. Think about it logically, especially for all of you saying he needs a full days rest to recover, HE HAS NOT RESTED!!! He's been chasing Oro since he did his kyuubi thing, and has had no time to recover. Sakura hasn't really done too much this whole time, and you know how she gets when shes emotional. Plus it's not like they don't have Yamato just to do wood jutsus and stop naruto when he goes nuts, I doubt Tsunade would have sent him if he was a weakling, we'll see a suprise from him I think.

I think I speak for everyone when I say next Chapter regardless of what happens is gonna be fucking awesome :smile-big

Sasuke: I don't care..
Naruto: Wh.. what do you mean? You're gonna die!!
Sasuke: As long as I can revenge my clan, I don't care! I don't care if he tortures me, kills me, or even takes my physical body.. As long as Itachi is dead, I don't care!
Naruto: ...WE CARE ASSHOLE!!
Sakura: ....
Sai: ....!
Sasuke: Talking is over, let's see if you've improved.. *suddenly stands behind Naruto, holding his old head-protector*
Naruto: ....
Sasuke: Hrmpf.. Konoha ninja.. what a joke...
Naruto: HOW CAN YOU MAKE FUN OF YOUR HOME TOWN!?! Anyone who makes fun of Konoha deserves a punch in the face!*punches for Sasukes face*
Sasuke: *dodges* ..slow.. you're too slow Naruto.. you lack hatred.. worthless Konoha-shinobi..
Sakura: *shocked*
Naruto: *coughs blood* ..God damnit.. Kyubii piece of shit..
Yamato: Relax Naruto, your body isn't healed yet!
Naruto: I don't care! I'm taking Sasuke home!
Sasuke: *laughs* *kukukuku* *attacks Naruto*
Naruto: *looking shocked and not capable of moving*
Sakura: *jumps in between and punches Sasuke waaaaay long, crushing a few walls and stuff* *starts crying*
Sasuke: *gets up and laughs* Heh, so I see you're not a complete whaste of space any more.. .. but you're still annoying..
Sakura: SHUT UP! You're not the Sasuke I had on my team, you're not the Sasuke I loved, you're not ANYTHING like the Sasuke I knew! *looks angry at Sasuke while crying* *tightens gloves*
Sasuke: So, _you're_ going to fight me now? a Shinobi doesn't show emotions.. crybaby..
Sakura: *stares*
Naruto: Sakura, no! This is between me and him.. We're continuing where we left off!
Sakura: Naruto.. You can't fight in your condition!
Sasuke: *laughs* (kukukuku)
Naruto: *stands up* *releases BLUE chakra instead of RED* ..watch me.. *ignores the pain and attacks with multiple clones and Rasengan from everywhere, then releases new secret nin-jutsus at once, and finally does the Yellow Flash's Body Flicker and knocks Sasuke THE FUCK OUT!*

(okay, that last part is just hoping :p wont ever happen.. first we have to get to see how strong Sasuke has become, then he have to beat everyone on Team-7, then get away, then fight Naruto later on when he's strong enough, and restored his health..)
Anyway, just hoping :p :)

I think Naruto will do the same thing over, and repeat the same sentence over and over again... like "Come with us Sasuke"..."Come with us SASUKE!"...etc
Sakura will try to talk him back to his senses, ....
Sai will do the same thing as Sakura instead with force, ...

Yamato will break it up and tell them that they need to retreat and rethink of a new plan, because Sasuke dont want to come back.

That's a possibility for kakashi to go there, but people would be bored if each time they meet they use that chidori/rasengan thing...it's time to move foward new and great justus...But The apparition of kakashi might be as probable as the apparition of a member of the akatsuki...what a mess THAT would do!! lol ^^

that little dimond on her head.... she collects chakra there over a very long peroid of time then when she needs to she can release it all at once and heal her body almost instantly i dont remember the name of it.

also oro did say that sasuke was stronger than him.
if your oro wouldn't you want a container thats' stronger than your current( can't beat your enemies who are all just about and stronger than your current self), that you can take over thier body whenever you choose.
also if sasuke is weeker than oro he's definately weeker than itachi, meaning oro is never going to get sasuke's body, because he would have been killed by itachi..like oro said have patience,..you have sasuke

I remember orochimaru's saying sasuke was stronger than him as more open-ended, that it could easily and was generally interpreted as that sasuke had a worse temper than orochimaru.  But it's not that simple as pointing to what a character said and then saying, see, that's the truth.  Why - what motive - would Orochimaru have for confessing to Sai that Sasuke was stronger than him in front of Sasuke himself?  If you think about it that way, you wouldn't so shallowly point to a quote as your justification.  The situation becomes alot more complicated.
Also, Orochimaru's the one who killed Sandaime hokage.  Saying Sasuke is stronger than Orochimaru is basically saying that Sasuke is on equal grounds, if not stronger than, Sandaime Hokage, who was often held to be among the strongest of the Hokages, at least at one time in his youth (or so Iruka told his students).  This is a little questionable... though I suppose we can believe this if we tried.
Thirdly, from what I heard most people seem to be thinking that Orochimaru wants Sasuke's body so that he can become stronger, and thus this makes Sasuke stronger than Orochimaru, or at least the current body that Orochimaru possesses.  But the thing is, Orochimaru doesn't really want Sasuke's body for its strength.  What's the point?  He'll just have to switch bodies another couple of years.  All things that have form will eventually decay, he says to Tsunade.  Rather, Orochimaru wants to borrow the Sharingan as a vehicle to hasten his great ambition, to master all the jutsu in the world... it's not about the strength of the current container, but about Orochimaru's growing strength and jutsu mastery independent of his container.
Lastly, if you think about it really, Sasuke still coerces Orochimaru to teach him jutsu.  This in itself already tells us that Sasuke is weaker than Orochimaru, or just another miniature Orochimaru, like Sakura is a mini-Tsunade.  The moment when we can say Sasuke has truly surpassed Orochimaru would be if he invents his own jutsu, independent of training by the mentor system, like when the Yondaime invented Rasengan, and then passed it on to his master...

1# Soldier Pill (But i think Naruto believes those to be cheap)

2# Oro transfers some Chakra (we know there are jutsu that let you steal chakra, remember the chunin exams, so its not impossible to imagine there are jutsu to transfer Chakra to help) The reason we have never seen one is, well, I can't imagen they would be very useful jutsu for a ninja to have. I mean what would 3 man teams consist of? One badass and 2 human chakra batteries.

3# Nine Tails. Yes, I realize he went KB4, but it's not the ninetails that is low on energy, it is Naruto's body. We know the nine tails can heal a broken neck and narutos chakra tan...something from his chunin fight with Neiji. The only limiting factor is Naruto's body's willingness to accept chakra from the ninetails. if Naruto is in danger, he will flare up. and the other is Yamoto.

4# New Jutsu from Sakura. Sakura is tired of being the team loser. Considering her focus, and teacher, I wouldn't put it past her to have the ability to do something wacky.

5# That Jutsu. We have no idea what it is, but if my abilities all rested on me having ungodly amounts of chakra, I would want to find a jutsu to "refill the tank" per say. Obviously, every ninja would be bad ass with such an ability. Like the 5th in the battle with Oro. But think about this for a second. If Naruto had a chakra storing move like the 5th, and he stored not his own, but the nine tails chakra, he wouldn't be shortening his own life when triggering it (but i may be wrong) And the best part of all? is that he could use a move like that probably once every 2 days. on the first, call on the chakra and store it, rest, and be ready to go the next day. Where as the 5th had to store small amounts over a long period of time.

We know Kishi liked DBZ and while his manga's characters show much more depth, DBZ and Naruto share one thing. They both have a main character who in every battle always looks down and out and busts out something you never expected...well at least the enemy never expected.

On another note, something that has been bothering me:

Naruto and Oro just had thier brawl. Naruto is about to take a dirt nap right now in the condition hes in but Oro walks around like hes had a full nights rest. Before racing back he talks about the body starting to reject him and then he races back. When he gets back Sasuke wants to learn a new jutsu. So he has time to teach him one. The guy continues to go around business as usual like hes got an unlimited supply of Chakra. I know hes a badass, but something just seems off.

I too think the story is ripe for a kakashi & akatsuki showing. I mean team 7 killed a member, you cant leave Naruto for last waiting for him and his team to get stronger, can you?

Actually there kinda is....didnt tsunade use a jutsu like that when she was fighting oro? cant remember exactly what it was but when she used it it shortened her life span...in any case it doesnt seem like an impossible jutsu for someone like oro to have...oh wait  isnt that somethin like what happens when someone uses the cursed seal? arnt they kinda borowing chakra from oro to gain the super strenght? (who has seen oro out of chakra anyway?)


first, tsunade used that jutsu for himself, she's a medic ninja, and after all that's her ultimate jutsu.

besides, i can't see any reason why would oro restore naruto's chakra (it is too dangerous folks, i mean there is sasuke there..)

second, the cursed seal makes the user has a larger amount of chakra, but it's not borrowed from orochimaro. it's all the user's

307 will just be talking.  Since Sasuke ripped that huge fart that was even heard by Kabuto and the Mokuton bushin, Oro probably heard it too so might show up in the end of the chapter. Further on, Akatsuki  might show up to catch Naruto or Kakashi might show up and teleport Sasuke into another dimension.  Naruto might also be forced to summon the frog stomache/rectum like Ero senin did when Itachi and Kisame were trying to get Naruto.

I remember orochimaru's saying sasuke was stronger than him as more open-ended, that it could easily and was generally interpreted as that sasuke had a worse temper than orochimaru. But it's not that simple as pointing to what a character said and then saying, see, that's the truth. Why - what motive - would Orochimaru have for confessing to Sai that Sasuke was stronger than him in front of Sasuke himself? If you think about it that way, you wouldn't so shallowly point to a quote as your justification. The situation becomes alot more complicated.
Also, Orochimaru's the one who killed Sandaime hokage. Saying Sasuke is stronger than Orochimaru is basically saying that Sasuke is onequal grounds, if not stronger than, Sandaime Hokage, who was often held to be among the strongest of the Hokages, at least at one time in his youth (or so Iruka told his students). This is a little questionable... though I suppose we can believe this if we tried.
Thirdly, from what I heard most people seem to be thinking that Orochimaru wants Sasuke's body so that he can become stronger, and thus this makes Sasuke stronger than Orochimaru, or at least the current body that Orochimaru possesses. But the thing is, Orochimaru doesn't really want Sasuke's body for its strength. What's the point? He'll just have to switch bodies another couple of years. All things that have form will eventually decay, he says to Tsunade. Rather, Orochimaru wants to borrow the Sharingan as a vehicle to hasten his great ambition, to master all the jutsu in the world... it's not about the strength of the current container, but about Orochimaru's growing strength and jutsu mastery independent of his container.
Lastly, if you think about it really, Sasuke still coerces Orochimaru to teach him jutsu. This in itself already tells us that Sasuke is weaker than Orochimaru, or just another miniature Orochimaru, like Sakura is a mini-Tsunade. The moment when we can say Sasuke has truly surpassed Orochimaru would be if he invents his own jutsu, independent of training by the mentor system, like when the Yondaime invented Rasengan, and then passed it on to his master...

I've been thinking along those lines as well. It seems that Orochimaru is trying to appear weaker than he actually is and humbly accepting Sasuke's rudeness to give him a false sence of security. But if Sasuke tries to usurp him or harm him in any way Oro will give him pain through the curse seal and remind him of who's in charge.

May 14, 2006, 02:47 PM
maybe Sasuke Naruto and Sakura will stare at each other for the whole chapter while saying each other's names on the last couple pages...
*edit*
on a more serious note, I get the feeling that sasuke will be weaker than naruto and will only realize that all the training he's been doing with oro has been wrong and not working and that only his friends can make him stronger, although that will take several chapters or even volumes to unfold at the current rate...

May 14, 2006, 03:18 PM
For some reason I'm starting to doubt there will even be a fight and if there is one, it won't be big. A little squabble, Sakura sees how evil Sasuke is, Sasuke acts perfectly calm, Naruto is ticked because he's too worn out to fight back.

Controlled chaos... That is something i would LOVE to see...

lol...i don't mind chaos as long as it's not chidori/rasengan again...i mean they can both destroy land now, let's have "monsters" fight :D



5# That Jutsu. We have no idea what it is, but if my abilities all rested on me having ungodly amounts of chakra,

I really though that it was destinated to the akatsuki, is sasuke part of the akatsuki?...I'm ok with the kyubi supplie...



307 will just be talking. Since Sasuke ripped that huge fart that was even Kabuto and the Mokuton bushin, Oro probably heard it too so might show up in the end of the chapter.

LOL....

Sasuke in my opinion is like naruto for jiraya, naruto could be stronger than him because of his chakra kyubi, but when comes to jutsu there is no way naruto could beat him, so sasuke isn't stronger than oro, i expect him to be as strong as naruto which if not on NH4 Can't overcome oro. Team seven is like a mini legendary team anyway so i'm sure that even against their "teacher" (or the reste of the legenday team) they got enough move/strengh to oppose them...but they won't win in their current states that's for sure!

oh yeah and there is that one time when sakura is training and she heals the little fishie with her hands....isnt chakra somehow related to your health (like how in dbz if u are completely 100% drained of chakra u die). And there was that filler episode where the two dudes gave their chakras to the star village leader...(yeah i know its a filler but it helps to rule out that its not impossible to have chakra transfering jutsu)

johnsmith112
May 14, 2006, 06:07 PM
My prediction for 307 will be
- lots of repetitive talk of naruto asking Sasuke to come back to konoha

- Lots of flashbacks

- Lots of pointless still images that show naruto running up to sasuke shown slowly in 4-5 pages of Shonen Jump, wasting another week of a naruto chapter. And people are complaing about the length of the Naruto filler anime? This is why the anime isn't following the manga at the moment!

timlee77
May 14, 2006, 08:22 PM
I think that there will be a fight, or a sparring match between Sasuke and Naruto that will reveal nothing... because there was a reason that Kishi "weakened" Naruto before he met Sasuke.

He wants them to spar, but does not want to reveal the full extent of either of their growths. Just like when the Legendary Sannin fought... all 3 of them were not at their best - Oro could not use his arms, Tsundade hadnt fought for 20 years, and Jiraiya was poisoned. Kishi will likely have some kind of scuffle between Naruto and Sasuke, but the full extent of either of their abilities will be delayed -- again.

Which means that I wont be surprised if new jutsus arent shown. And if they are, only minor ones.

This arc was to reintroduce Sasuke, and likely reconfirm is committment to Itachi{s death. Naruto and Sakura will find a way to escape and perhaps continue tracking Oro down the road... but I think we wont get a juicy new long uber fight where Naruto and Sasuke go full-on head to head for, I dont know, another 200 chapters.... AFTER I think Sasuke deals with Itachi and Naruto protects a Jinkriri (sp?) from Akatsuki.[br]Posted at: May 14, 2006, 06:20:05 PM_________________________________________________One last thing... Sakura cant heal Naruto completely yet -- she tried after he went KU4. Rebuilding his chakra would take more chakra than she has. Also, Oro cant heal squat....only destroy. Perhaps Naruto can be healed IF Kabuto agrees to it. That is the only way I see a fair fight between Sasuke and Naruto happening.

Kakashis_grl_Ice
May 15, 2006, 02:21 AM
You know honestly I think Naruto isn't going to say anything the next chapter, I think it will be Sakura who is speaking, and that whole time he is silent he is actually gathering the Kyuubi's chakra healing his body. And Sasuke forget's about Naruto and is shocked when Naruto goes KB2 and attacks. He is caught off guard and before the final blow to knock out Sasuke Oro steps in and summons the Rashoumon gate to stop Naruto's attack, while he escapes with Sasuke's hurt body. Rawr...:P

But I don't think Naruto is going to talk in this chapter.

Saithan
May 15, 2006, 02:51 AM
Naah, you're all wrong. Thou Hast best listen to me words, pretty lads :D (okay, screwed that joke).

I think that we'll see some action with Yamato and Sai against Sasuke, of course remembering that orochimaru had run away might mean that there will be a nasty surprise as well, so I guess we could ask ourselves, can Naruto summon the frog boss in his current situation because that might be necessary if Orochimaru pops up with that snake.

But of course before all that we'll have lots of flashbacks and close ups.

May 15, 2006, 09:38 AM
There will not be much of a fight if there is going to be any.

It just could be that Naruto talks to Susuke about akatsuki and itachi and orochi asks Susuke to go along with Naruto and the gang in persuit of akatsuki. Because its not an order given by the village it might happen in a different way, eg - Susuke leaves with Naruto and the team back to the village with a hidden agenda to get info on where abouts of Akatsuki. Orochimaru would have updated Susuke on the fight Naruto and the team with Sasoori and would want Sasuke to get rid of a few akatsuki members for him (he must have spoken about Itachi to bring some spark in Sasuke).
So for some reason Sasuke goes back to the village with Naruto, he wont be betraying Orochimaru, but it would a plan made by him and Orochimaru. Maybe this is why Kabuto is not doing anything.

Maybe you all might not agree, but I thought it would be cool if 307 went a little like this...

Openning with Naruto and gang having a staring contest with Sasuke. They Banter a bit back and forth with naruto Pleading with Sasuke to come back and they can all work together. Sasuke just stares, once in a while a smart ass comment flies from his lips. Then Sasuke looks off into the sistance near the entrance and spots Yamatos wood clone watching after a captured Kabuto.

"Oh, I see you have managed to subdue that clown, Kabuto," Sasuke claims. " I always knew he was a lower class shinobi!"

Naruto and co. keep quiet as Sasuke chuckles and looks to the sky.

"Kukukuku..." he laughs. "I guess it is about that time. Orochimaru will try to take my body soon so I guess this is it. Kabuto will not stand in the way. Naruto... Sakura... Are you ready to take down Orochimaru?"

Naruto and Sakura smile in anticapation. End Chapter. In a laterchapter, maybe after they have killed or apprehended Orochimaru the three talk and Sasuke tells them that he must go now, but will return one day when Itachi is dead.

Then maybe they'll meet up with him later after they report back to the village. Danzou will be charged for his crimes agains Konoha, and Sai will be on... I dont know, probation since he in the end did help the mission

May 15, 2006, 05:31 PM
Not many people would like it to go that way...but I would. I want Sasuke to come back...you know, his boyish personality was so freakin' annoying, but now he seems to be pretty kick-ass (at least he looks kick-ass [yes, I like it, now back off :p])...so I want him back damn it!

Although, I hope Sakura punches him nice and hard, and sends his ass flying. :p


Danzou will be charged for his crimes agains Konoha
The only crime he committed was having Sai hand over an ANBU list...the rest, I don't think he can be charged for, since Sai's real mission was to kill Sasuke before Orochimaru could switch bodies. (And that is in the best interest of Konoha...that Orochimaru does not get the Sharingan at any cost.)

I, too, had thought of this kind of plot scenario developing, prolly cos Kishi tends to build up what appears to be predictable and then changes cards on us at the last minute.

So yeah... I think it's possible that Oro will save Kabuto, and then the two will be up against Team 7 and Sasuke.

Of course thatd piss of Oro to no end and he'll show his true power (in desperation of loosing Sasuke).

Hi all, here's my prediction :
Naruto will try to convince sasuke about letting go his revenge on Itachi, Sasugay will respond that naruto is too childish and can't understand his path at all (you know like the story between Jiraya and Oroshitmaru?).
Then a fight will begin and we'll witness the best asskick ever seen on naruto (of course sasugay will repaint the floor with naruto !)
These caracter are too involved into their respective fight to change their mind (even after 3 years)

BTW Sakura'll stand aside saying (oh sasugay-kun why are you so mean ??, I love you and i want children with weird eyes like you !)

I like almost all of the characters in fact (except Iruka). each for their own reasons. I don't get people who rabidly hate on characters (except Iruka). I find the traits that everyone seems to hate about Sasuke are the main reasons why i like him. Sakura too. Dude, SHE GRABBED SAI BY HIS EFFING THROAT! YES!

You know what i noticed?  Sasuke only really smiles when he's either being arrogant or getting ready to hurt people.  I think i would like to see him smile next chapter.  XD  You know, i used to hate him, Sakura too, but after taking a moment to concider the circumsances of his character (and hers) i found that i actually like them very much.  I like almost all of the characters in fact (except Iruka).  each for their own reasons.  I don't get people who rabidly hate on characters (except Iruka).  I find the traits that everyone seems to hate about Sasuke are the main reasons why i like him.  Sakura too.  Dude, SHE GRABBED SAI BY HIS EFFING THROAT!  YES! 

but yeah.  Anyways, i want him to at least smile next chapter, or maybe laugh.  That would be even better.






Sasuke's smiled before... xD
He sometimes laughs/smiles at Naruto's dimwitness...

though probable- that wont happen soo soon. i am expecting sasuke to show some real improvement, probably surprise us with his version of ms through this encounter, since those guys he is facing are not pushovers. But not soo soon.

as most people said- this chapter will be more of a dialogue thingy- with sasuke and naruto/sakura exchanging words. with sakura urging sasuke to come back with them. and sai looking on with keen interest. Oro may just be watching in the distance, just waiting to see what his container is really up to.

For the next chapter things will go as Sasuke pleases... he pretty much has everyone there (except Kabuto and Yamato in a minor degree) under his will.

Sasuke wants to talk, they'll all talk. If he wants to fight, whine, run or whatever, the others will ultimately have to let him have his way. All depends on how close Sasuke feels on reaching his goal to kill Itachi via Orochimaru's training.

IMO If a fight starts, Sasuke is the only one that is safe from getting a fatal wound.

I think that if Sasuke is smart , it's time for him to rebell against Oro. I mean 3 Konoha Nins + 1 Handicaped (Naruto ) ready to help him. That would be 4,5 on 1 (according that Kabuto will not care ).

So if he doesn't want to end up stuffed :p by Oro , it's the right time to make his move


Or did he find out somthing about Oro we don't know? (master evil ,supa ubba powerfull)

May 18, 2006, 07:02 AM
I hope Naruto gets smacked down. (yea, i said it.. hear me out!)

It'll open up the opportunity for Kishi to finally mature Naruto.. So far the only thing we have really seen out of him is his Kage Bunshin and gettin real mad and growing tails. Yamato kind of hinted that Naruto needs to control that rage and use it to his advantage instead of letting it consume him.. Somehow I doubt his encounter with Sauske will go that route.. He'll probably freak out, use 'that' jutsu while hurt, Sasuke will shrug it off and knock him out or something and then leave with Oro.

Then we'll get to see Naruto have a serious awakening with himself, train some REAL Taijutsu so he doesn't look like a noob in battle, get better control of his emotions, and turn into a massively buttkicking ninja.. One could dream, I suppose. I tire of the current "Something gets their butt kicked, Naruto gets Angry, Naruto rapes everyone in his path with Brute Force" stuff.. Looking for this to really revitalize the manga for me.. (Not that I think its been bad lately.. just think it needs a nice action-packed kick) =)

I can´t help feeling a little bit sorry for Sai. He just turned to the good side and still gets shit from Sakura. Okey, he could have told Team Kakashi about his mission and that he wasn´t trying to kill Sasuke.

Sasuke is going to be real cold. He will feel superior to Naruto in everyway since Naruto is in the condition he is in. He just used his last chakra for a tajuu kage bushin in 306.

If were lucky we will hear some cool information from Sasuke. He might tell them something interesting. But im predicting an emotional chapter with very little happening.

And I don´t agree with you Rooks. I think Kishimoto is doing a fine job with Narutos development. Naruto will never look like the elite nin you want him to look like. He will always be clumpsy and somewhat stupid. Thats what he´s like. But I do agree that I want to see him fight without Kyuubipowers. I think he has allot under his sleeves.

Why people think naruto hasn't grown ? When yamato told him to go back to konoha he told sakura to leave him, he'll be fine (true that we don't really know why on the next chapter he's still jumping from tree to tree... -_-' ), i think a part his temper he's ok now, and if he's exited it's only because he hasn't been that close to sasuke in the last 2.x years! And obviously met orochimaru the person he probably hate the most on earth.

May 18, 2006, 10:53 AM
That "moving too fast to react"-thingie is used by almost every character once in a while, so don´t read too much into it. It is a Sasuke-ish entrance, thats for sure. I am almost sure that he is trying to intimidate Naruto by leaning on him like that while drawing his Katana...but his real target is Sai or maybe Yamato, not Naruto. And if it´s actually Naruto he is aiming for, this could mean one of the following:
1. Sasuke does not think of Naruto as a brother/friend anymore and simply sees him as an enemy (veeeery unlikely...no...impossible)
2. He thinks of Naruto as the biggest threat in the bunch and is trying to take him out asap, maybe by cutting his legs or something.
Lets see about that, i still prefer the idea of him actually aiming on Sai or Yamato.

I'm one of those who predicted the katana REJOICE!!! :knk

I also thought that it would be IT back in 306 Discussion (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=3601.msg55955#msg55955). Now I want to see page 14 colored :love The top panel, to be more specific.



That "moving too fast to react"-thingie is used by almost every character once in a while, so don´t read too much into it. It is a Sasuke-ish entrance, thats for sure. I am almost sure that he is trying to intimidate Naruto by leaning on him like that while drawing his Katana...but his real target is Sai or maybe Yamato, not Naruto. And if it´s actually Naruto he is aiming for, this could mean one of the following:
1. Sasuke does not think of Naruto as a brother/friend anymore and simply sees him as an enemy (veeeery unlikely...no...impossible)
2. He thinks of Naruto as the biggest threat in the bunch and is trying to take him out asap, maybe by cutting his legs or something.
Lets see about that, i still prefer the idea of him actually aiming on Sai or Yamato.

Cue in "Sai getting stabbed while trying to stop Sasuke".

I enjoyed this chapter very much even though there was little action in it. I am thinking that Sasuke drawing his katana, he is probably trying to force a fight between him and Naruto. That or he is trying to be intimidating in backing up his words that he let Naruto live on a whim and that he can kill Naruto on a whim.

it starts, so here they go again, I still think naruto has some tricks up his sleeves and is going to be able to push sasuke back,
the end result is still far away, this is going to take a long time.

by the way thanks for the raw Touch. :thumbs

Real shinobi don't need swords. Naruto will oppose his katana with meerly a kunai. Check out Naruto's last line. He's fed up with this shit. How can one expect to become Hokage if he can't even save his friend... right Sasuke?

Sasukeee is just tooooooooo cool ... Amazing .... and I love his new weapon ... hope he will kill them all then we see a few more chapters of how he kills his brother and then the series ends .. that would be a finish :)

Beautiful chapter. Sasuke's such a bitch, but a hot bitch, a hot bitch with a Katana.

Can't wait to see what happens next chapter... not much SasuSaku interaction... I think team 7 coming back was a bit shocking to Sasuke and he doesn't want them to come back anymore in order to obtain his dream.... so I think he's just putting on a show while Oro comes back... MAYBE....

[i love stating the obvious.]

His Katana is beautiful.

Someone find a shrink for that man ( Sasuke ) !
Oh! and for Naruto too by the way ... geeezzz let it go man!

I hope he's goin' to slice him for real this time ... so we'll know that there's no chance for Sasuke to come back to Konoha
and he'll end up roaming around like Oro kukukuku *funny as hell*
The we will be able to focus on important things wich are Akatsuki and Itachi :smile-big

Why would Naruto get suprised by that speed don't forget that Naruto is very quick remeber when Chiyo tries to attack Kakashi for example if it comes to speed Naruto shouldnt be so bad off. Anyway, Sakura seems always to be on the edge of crying like hell. Yamato don't really know his thought on how to handle Sasuke. Sai seems to be on his defense, so he should be up for using force against Sasuke.

The only way I see the fighting is going to get stopped is if; Akatsuki comes or some major Konoha ninja/s like Jiraiya, Kakashi, ANBU, Team 8 etc etc

Hi all,
Here's my prediction :
Sasugay'll try to repaint the floor with Naruto's ass, but he'll notice that it's a bunshin (or maybe he noticed it from the beginning) then, naruto'll try a kagebunshin-rasengan without any effect for sasugay.
Sai'll get his ass filled by sasugay's blade.
And Oh, i almost forgot... Sasugay'll continue his journey by himself until he fought his brother and get helped by naruto.

Yamato and Sakura were so surprised at Sasuke's speed that they made a comment (or thought) of how fast he was.

Naruto didn't make a reaction at all.  I'd like to think he wasn't overly impressed and/or was able to keep up with him.. Would be interesting if Naruto is actually 'playing' with him from the start..  :p

My take is more that he was surprised by the action not the speed per se. Especially on the last page he doesn't really seem all that impressed. I agree with whomever said Naruto has something up his sleeve. That or Sai is going to jump in before anyone has time to react.

Got to remember, Naruto is the King of Clones esp when Sasuke pulls a fast one like this.

also


Naruto : "How can one expect to become Hokage if he can't even save his friend... right Sasuke?"

he seem to be ready to do something. Lets hope it is more of Naruto the Trickster than naruto the kyubi.

Izzint sasuke ALWAYS confident bout his abilities, despite the fact he only had to go up against Gaara!!!

but i have a feeling, regardless if naruto and gang defeats sasuke, he will still not go back to konoha. Maybe he will run away from Orochimaru.

May 18, 2006, 12:43 PM
an awesome, amazing, spectacular chapter :D sasuke was acting just like i thought and i want to see him....so he will not return back and will become TRUE ENEMY of naruto because he wants to kill naruto just test himself..yayyyy but where is oro all that time??

i guess oro will stop sasuke and will say "it is not right time" or something like that......

I don't think Sasuke was that fast or at least it didn't seem to me like he actually aimed to amaze Team 7 with his speed... it looked like he was quick but made obvious he was going down to face them.

IMO the only way Naruto might have a chance against the new Orochimaru team is going Kyuubi again or that Sakura pulls a bag of miracle soldier pills for Naruto and herself... or an intervention by either the Akatsuki or some shinobi allies.

Naruto's motivation to fight now is the greatest so far and will push him to his best regardless the kyuubi. Hopefully it's not a clone what Sasuke is holding and they fight right away.


i guess oro will stop sasuke and will say "it is not right time" or something like that......

Oro's say is useless here unless he can oblige Sasuke via the cursed seal, but even then Sasuke's will is currently the last word. Sasuke wants to fight, they'll fight. Sasuke wants to hug, well, they'll hug XD...

Shit that was good.  Haven't felt this elated at the end of a chapter since I don't know when.  

Apparently, Sasuke still has 'issues' about his old team, since the first thing he asked was if Kakashi was around and pretty much the second thing he harped on about was....no surprises...Naruto.  I don't think it was any surprise that Sasuke turned out to have a sword and the whole 'woah he's so fast' is obviously Sasuke 'testing' Naruto's strength or else he's doing an Itachi and testing his own strength.

Can't begin to imagine what turn the next chapter will take.  


P.S - Dynamic Dragon, notice how your recent fanart eerily similar to the cover this week?  You been secretly conversing with Kishi? ;)

Hey, didn't notice the parallel of Itachi's lack of hate speech and the way Sasuke speaks over Naruto's shoulder. Great stuff and, yes, for along time I'm looking anxiously for the next chapter.

kadoman
May 18, 2006, 01:28 PM
Yes, on that note, Sasuke is also beginning to look more like Itachi. It wasn't as obvious in the last chapter, but with flashback Itachi occupying the same panel space as Sasuke, it does become quite obvious. He's just missing the lines under his eyes. He is more polite in his general manner, as well, just like Itachi. Well, perhaps polite isn't the right word, maybe...restrained is what I'm looking for.

Hm jeah, nice one kadoman. Didn´t notice that.... hm if i take in account that Naruto is quite exhausted, Sakura close to crying her heart out and Sasuke is threatening Naruto...plus Narutos last words in this chapter...sounds like even more determination to bring Sasuke back (*sigh* whadda surprise). But seeing the current state of Team 7 and Sasuke´s arrogant manner....maybe its "that jutsu"-time?
:darn

Naruto's final line is what makes this chapter so damn exciting.  It was in direct reference to Sasuke's taunt about him wasting his time and forgetting his Hokage dream. Basically, Naruto is saying that at the least, he should save a friend if he's going to take on the responsibility of Hokage - so he hasn't been wasting his time at all. It certainly sounds like he's not going to put up with Sasuke going Itachi on him, that's for sure.  You know?  Like Sasuke and his attitude can go to hell.

Someone else before said it well: Naruto is fed up with this shit.  I think we're gonna see real anger between the two. 

YES!

Yes YES YES! Finally Sasuke is about 98% evil!
First I didn't like him because he was trying to be evil, but couldn't quite pull it off..
Then I kinda liked him because he left Naruto alive after their match.. All the symbolics in that match made it "right", and I loved the way it ended..
Then I didn't like him again because he said he only left Naruto alive on a "whim", and now I really love him, as he seems to be pure evil :) ooh, finally he's decided :)

Although Naruto will make him nice again, probably.. but still, kinda cool :)


And of course Sasuke is confident, he's a God damn Uchia.. it's what they do, they act confident.. well, backed up with the fact that they actually are confident.. but you all see my point... he's an Uchia..

As for next chapter, Sai is going to help get Naruto out of Sasuke's grip, but will be stabbed himself...

Sai: *coughs blood* , Naruto, thank you for helping me remember.. *dies*
Sasuke: hrmpf, see what feelings do with you? he got killed for the life of someone else.. Well, it doesn't matter.. you're up next..
Naruto: *standing about 9 feet (3 meters) away, growling* Sa.. Sasuke.. what have you become?
Sasuke: Stronger, by hatred..
Naruto: I.. I didn't like Sai all that much from the start, but he found his long lost emotions, and sure as hell didn't deserve anything like that!
Sasuke: He was to weak.
Naruto: Enough!! This time I won't do a half-assed job, this time I'm gonna break each and every one of your bones and drag you back to Konoha!!
Sasuke: That's be fun.. let's see what you've lea.. (!!)
Naruto: *attacks from behind*
Sasuke: *dodges easilly* .. of course, Kage-Bunshin.. is that all you've ever learned?
Naruto: *grins*
Sasuke: *shocked*
Naruto does some awsome überhaXx0rnin-jutsu2k ! :p

Sasuke: *dodges again, but actually makes a facial expression this time* hmpf, this could get interesting.. *evil smile*
Naruto: Shut up!
Sakura: NARUTO! You can't fight in that condition! You're still wounded..
Sasuke: Sakura, you're still annoying..
Naruto: I'll do whatever I want..

Then continues fighting untill something else happens.. it won't be a long fight, Naruto has to heal up first..

May 18, 2006, 02:07 PM
Yeah, i was getting a bit tired with Naruto taking everything from Sasuke without going back on him. I mean, Sasuke just made fun of Naruto and (what is most likely even worse) his dream. There´s no way Naruto is going to take that without getting at least a little bit personal, too. I have to admit, i would like to see Narutos determination to have Sasuke back as a friend at least shake a little bit. Though i don´t think thats going to happen anytime soon (or anytime at all).
@pjoto: YES! make it happen like that, oh great Kishimoto-sama!! *bows down facing to Japan* ....well maybe without the überhaXx0rnin-jutsu2k.... but some surprise jutsus would be nice.

Also, check this out:

It seems as if Sai connected with Sasuke on some level.. He understands what he's saying, he recognizes himself..
If you look at Sasukes' face, you see it's not anger, it's not boredom, sure as hell not joy, he's actually looking sad..

http://www.ktv.no/~jra-ktv/sadness_and_sorrow.jpg


There's still a shred of sympathy somewhere in there.. and Naruto is sure as hell gonna find it and exploit it to it's max in order to get Sasuke back to his sences..
As Neji once said; "Naruto, you have better eyes than me.."

kadoman
May 18, 2006, 02:16 PM
Yes I noticed that too. I think he's distancing himself from the 'speech'. I don't think he wants to allow himself to feel empathy, because his goal after all, is to let go of his feelings.

donkeyhigh
May 18, 2006, 02:22 PM
Well, there could be allot of explinations on that, but I like to think Sasuke's not going to end up like Orochimaru did, as Jiraya implied..
Or like Itachi, for that matter..

He still got some human in there..

Anyway, the last page, and Narutos comment and facial expression ooses of self confident.. I mean, after being attacked at that speed, and the enemy's already drawn his katana, he can still stand completely still, not flinching even with his eyes and say something like that..
He's gonna surprice us, next chapter.. Naruto is definently kicking Sasukes over-confident ass..
