So it seems all are alive and back in Konoha (woooo! Sai lives!!!), and it seems Sai has become part of Team 7.

Now that things are settled with Sasuke at the moment, what's next for Team 7? How much longer is Kakashi out of the picture? And will Yamoto ever steal the spotlight? Is Akatsuki moving? What's going to happen next in the world of Naruto?

Predict away!

"they" are coming.

woot, woot!

Looks like they are going to try again. Well at least one thing kind of came true: Naruto did have a minor breakdown. Looks like the Akatsuki are going to try again on catching Naruto. I think this time we might see Tobi.

If they are going to bring in Akatsuki into the next arc, I am hoping that it will be the two unkown members. I really want to know what that mountain of a monster that Akasuki looks like.

June 09, 2006, 03:22 AM
Hmmm... I would like to predict that the next arc will focus on Akatsuki as a whole, but that the main mission they are going to be given is to track down the other Jinchuuriki and offer them safe haven in Konoha from Akatsuki. That seems somewhat of a logical ninja mission for Tsunade to give. Also, I think that the next arc will probably have a surprise entrance of the return of Kakashi but not in the next chapter.

ok so next would be someone like Akastuki attact or i have no idea.... and hum.... when is kakashi is comming back?? i kinda miss our kakashi... and i really hope we will see more of Neji and Shikamaru....and others

help me anyone? :)

While Team 7 is back. I don't think "they" are akatsuki yet. Maybe the other Jinchuuriki travel to Konoha for protection or to pick up Naruto. I think the other Jinchuuriki have to be shown soon. I mean we only know 2 of them. I want to see the others. If akatsuki does show up I think we it will be 2 different members. I mean Itachi and Kisame already have failed to bring Naruto back. I also predict we also will learn what akatsuki plan to do with the tailed beasts in the coming chapters. Implant them in there own memebers,perhaps? Well, we have to wait to find out, and I'm probobly wrong on about all of this.

It's interesting that Yamato is still in the team, because he has the ability to supress Jinchuuriki powers. He's the only one in the village with that ability, so he's most likely be given missions to track down other Jinchuuriki. My prediction is next arc Team7 go Jinchuuriki hunting.

Raine_Joybringer
June 09, 2006, 04:12 AM
Hmm... "they"... interesting choice of words there, Kishimoto. It could mean so many things- Akatsuki, Jinchuuriki, Chuunin Exam participants...

Darn it, it's too vague! For once I feel like I have no idea what's coming next chapter. Though, with Yamato continuing to serve as team leader, there could be a bit of an idea there.

June 09, 2006, 04:21 AM
^^ Very true however it also says Konoha will be shaken to its core. Either way something big is going to brew up, shaken to its core to me would think they are going to be under attack again. But thats just me im probably wrong.

"Bottom: The Leaf will be shaken to its core again..."they're" coming! Next time: "Beacon"!"

June 09, 2006, 04:42 AM
Not likely very wishful thinking but that beacon could be refering to
http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/5876/beacon7sc.th.jpg (http://img132.imageshack.us/my.php?image=beacon7sc.jpg)
that beacon used for Yondaime's jutsu.

You Know Who it doesnt mention akatsuki they are infering that the they used in the manga is referin to the akatsuki. No predictions this time...kishi can go anywhere with the manga rite now

lee-nus
June 09, 2006, 04:54 AM
ooo, it will be sooo interesting to see where the manga takes off from here. personally, i think it will have something to do with either other bijuu or the akatsuki, though the latter seems more likely in a way.

j0ny
June 09, 2006, 05:26 AM
I am betting it will be a duel mission with another team to gather info on other Jinchuuriki. What ever happened to Konohamaru? I bet we may see him soon....

thejackass98
June 09, 2006, 05:26 AM
well at this point kishi has left us clueless so i only say wait and see cuz it can be akatsuki, other jinch or any thing but i highly dought its going to be the chunin exam participants cuz either way if naruto chooses to take one we already know he is at the same level as a chuunin or even stronger

destinator
June 09, 2006, 05:41 AM
"Bottom: The Leaf will be shaken to its core again..."they're" coming! Next time: "Beacon"!"

Well that doesnt sound really good. Shaken to its core means something with a huge inpact...and the beacon thing ? Coud either stay for Konoha needing serious help and someone else needing backup.

i would definitly love to see more jinchuuriki, i want to see more amazing jinchuuriki powers. maybe the one they are having trouble finding allows the ninja to become completely undetectable like a chameleon or mist or something....*sigh* or at least show us some of the other ninja of the leaf village, please oh PLEASE let Kiba and Akamaru come on this mission, maybe with shino too... and hinata! and neji.. *foams at the mouth while eyes go blank*

binkansarariman
June 09, 2006, 06:26 AM
well... am gonna give a shot here..'they' is reffering to chuunin exam participants.. 'beacon' : oro gang or akatsuki gang or both of them joining in disguising themsleves as school boys... it will be bishounen to the extreme!!!

Predator
June 09, 2006, 06:52 AM
Well, to me beacon's associating with transmitting, so I predict that the next chapter Konoha will recieve some troubling news. That way the "beacon" will be a messenger from far away and "shaking to the core" will be the effect on everybody. That way we might get to see multiple teams assigned to the same task along with Team 7.

yeah, though there is no real way to know, the scenario you mentioned is likely... and interesting!

DarkManSharingan32
June 09, 2006, 07:47 AM
I dunno everyone...
A beacon (of light) is a signal...
Akatsuki = Dawn... Dawn, could be interpreted as some sort of beacon *shrugs*

It could be that Kishi is telling us exactly what is going to happen... then hope we hypothesize that he wouldnt do that.

And "they" BETTER be the Akatsuki...
But since Naruto is out on a mission... Who will come to konoha?

I believe it will be Tobi... and who will he encounter?
You got it... Kakashi...

Maybe they are talking about "bAcon"...so we'll have a whole chapter of naruto eating ramen with pork...ok i'm out.

Shambler
June 09, 2006, 08:45 AM
I don't know if analysing the preview will do much good, 'cos they rarely have much in connection with the actual chapter. How many times did we have 'Gaara's death' during the Rescue arc only for Gaara to come back to life? :) That said, I do like this interpretation:



Not likely very wishful thinking but that beacon could be refering to
http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/5876/beacon7sc.th.jpg (http://img132.imageshack.us/my.php?image=beacon7sc.jpg)
that beacon used for Yondaime's jutsu.


Hiraishin for Naruto ftw. :D

I hope that we get to see another Jinchuuriki soon. A cool arc would involve Team 7 racing Akatsuki to catch one, although seeing another character work in tandum with his/her bijuu right after Naruto has been banned from using his would kinda cheese me off. Seeing 4-tailed Naruto vs the 4-tailed Jinchuuriki would be sweet.

Also... I wanna see Team 8! We all know that Team 8 > Oro+Sasuke+AL so lets see them kick the stuffing out of something. :p

He could only supress Naruto's powers, and only because he had a necklace which was owned by the 1st, otherwise he cannot control a Jinchuuriki.

Gold Knight
June 09, 2006, 09:55 AM
No clue as to what'll happen next. And while as much as I love Yamato, I do miss Kakashi too. But it looks like Kishimoto doesn't plan to use him again for a while longer yet.

I just hope that they do start to involve other teams too, now.

Gold Knight
June 09, 2006, 10:09 AM
Maybe it could be a rival country attacking Konoha. Kinda like the Sand and Sound did, but that's something I've kinda been waiting for a while now because it'll definitely create a state of emergency where Team 7 would HAVE to interact with other teams, which is what I want to see. It also could be a sort of realistic "pseudo-tournament" as well, which is something I'm kind of ready to see again in Naruto.

Hmmmm Beacon... Sort of like the Bird that was the Beacon to all Villages of the start of the Chuunin Exams? =) =)

Dunno whats going to happen, but im mad that I gotta wait a week!

I Predict that we won't get very good predictions this week, because the chapter was so vague!

Raine_Joybringer
June 09, 2006, 12:50 PM
Beacon could also refer to a person of great importance... Tsunade?

1.chunnin exam
2.story about kakashi
3.akatsuki
4.blur blur blur......i dun know...

HokageNaruto
June 09, 2006, 01:09 PM
maybe we will see an akatsuki memember come into konoha and the beacon means a emergency alarm that konoha has when someone has infiltrated the village

DeadlySink
June 09, 2006, 02:02 PM
Maybe Team Kakashi'll try to go to another mission, and kakashi'll suddenly appear and join them. It'll be cool to see Yamato and Kakashi in the same team, like the old days.The mission could be something about Danzou, but, while they're on their way, Danzou, another country, or some ramdom ninjas will assault Konoha and we'll see team kakashi and all the other teams fighting.
It would be good...but honestly I don't think it would happen, I actually want it to happen hehe...

Thanks god there was no much crying and chit chatting about that sasu in this chapter, I think its an awsome chapter, and worth the wait. After Sai joining Team Kakashi "Not team 7 anymore ;)" I think its gona be an intresting mission, but I have no ideas. I dont know why, but I have a feeling that Sai will die :( I am starting to like that fellow, he has a cute smile :). I hope that I am wrong theough

Well its Team Kakashi, but Team 7 is easier to type for us lazy people. :p

And I was glad also...I was afriad there was going to be like 5 chapters of Naruto and Sakura crying about Sasuke...I'm glad the arc ended quickly, and now hopefully we can see some new Aktasuki members moving...

And damn it! SAI ISN'T GOING TO DIE! Let the guy live...he's finally developed a personality and free-will, and killing him off now would be horrible...! :darn

I'm hoping we see at least one new Akatsuki member revealed...and probably going after Naruto. With that many high ranking criminals, it wouldn't be suprising to see them competing over who can bring in the Kyuubi first...

Obidan
June 09, 2006, 03:46 PM
You are so right, Sai is soooooo cool, and he is starting to get well with the group, but I dont know, this chapter gave me the feeling that Kishi plans on killing him!!!!!! and maybe Naruto would say, ya, I lost enough, am bringing sasu back, I dont want to loose him or something like that :(.
I really want Sai to remain in the story line till the end. He has such weird Jutsus and he is kinda fun :D.

Thanks god we didnt hear much of that crying, I expected to see them crying all the way back to Konoha, and even in from of Tsunade, lol. The funny thig is that Naruto was the one crying, and Sakura told him crying wont bring him back :p.
I hope to see other Akatuski members in the next chapter, although I doubt that we are seeing any new ones!!! I have a thory, and if it is right, then we will se Itachi, and Kisame propably, it says that every Akatuski member is apointed to a monster, since that he and his mate keep looking for their monsters, not interfering with other ones!!!!. If thats the case, then I guess we will be sticking with I&K for some time!!!.
Actually I hope it aint true, as I am really excited to know the other faces, members and powers :p.
What rank do you sugest that Tsunade gave to Team Kakashi (7 ;))

I agree that it seems like something tragic will happpen to Sai. Either he will die buy helping Naruto (to show that he has really changed) or he will betray Team 7 (because of his fake smile). It might actually help bring some more negative/realistic emotion to the next mission. I hope the Akatuski is involved one way or the other. I actually am more concerned about their agenda than Sasuke and Oro. Itachi and Kisame haven't even fought at 100% yet either.

Obidan
June 09, 2006, 04:19 PM
It couldnt be possibly about Akatuski, I mean the mission, the mission would be something like going to the Sand, checking on Gaara or something similar. They might face Akatuski members on the way back or so, but things would be a bit calm for the few chapters, specially the coming one, and propably more of Sai's storyline and so. Then we would go to action.
Sai's betrayal is out of my mind actually, although it seemed to me that it was so fast for him to get along the group, but we aint in real life, his smile has changed, he started to show real smiles, and thats why Danzou warned him, coz he realised that he has changed, and that his smile had feelings in it :D.
That guy is really awsome.
I dont even think that we will see Danzou in trouble coz of what he did (planning to Kill sasu or starting his Anbu thingy) as am starting to believe that Tsunade already know about that!!! who knows!! We might see Danzou do something, or something!!!! Something like sending Sai's sensi after him to check that he has no feelings (functioning), and if he is having feelings then Danzou would kill him!!!!!!!! Danzou himself might be the reason for Sai's brother death!!!!
Be aware guys, anime is always about surprises ;)

June 09, 2006, 04:32 PM
Hello there. First post.

Like some other people around here, i don't feel Danzou's reaction is right. I think Root will get more development.

So that takes me to : " shaken to the core ". "They" could possibly refers to Root members begining civil war inside Konoha. I don't think Danzou is dumb, and has seen tha Sai is not reliable anymore so Sai is not aware of this. We didn't had any clue on Team7's next mission, maybe that is becauce it will not be important regarding the big upcoming event.

Though it could be fun to see some akatsuki action, i kinda doubt it is them who will shake Konoha for now, i feel it is too early. :amuse

kadoman
June 09, 2006, 04:56 PM
I predict the 'shaken to the core' thing has to do with root. They are coming might be Akatsuki - in cahoots with Root? The beacon...could be a person or a thing...? Damn...too vague.

yira_heerai
June 09, 2006, 05:17 PM
There's one other aspect that's been mentioned before, right before the patched up Team 7 left for the Bridge: the upcoming Chuunin exam. Remember, Naruto's not become a Chuunin yet. Since the last one was sort of a disaster, they may try to hold it in Konoha again. The return of the Sand sibs?

Honestly there's no telling. This mission at the end of the chapter could have just been Kishimoto's way of showing that Sai's certainly part of the team now. Of answering the more immediate questions like "Is Yamato's part done?" "What will happen to Sai," that sort of thing. We don't see every mission the nins go through and remember that Tsunade said they were... understaffed, so to speak. A shinobi's life is a very busy one.

tscombo
June 09, 2006, 05:23 PM
Possibly Danzou and Sai could go head to head later on as Sai sides with the Konoha beliefs because of Team 7. It does seem a bit too early to get back to Akatsuki unless a new member is introduced.

Coven
June 09, 2006, 05:29 PM
I do believe the root is what will be the source of Konoha's disturbance next chapter which is why I have a strange theory on Itachi. I believe itachi is still in direct contact with the root organization which is why he is so emotionless like Sai. Akatsuki and root are allied in some way or another but I am not quite sure of the reason or common goal quite yet. This would also fit into the assasination on Sasuke to silence the threat of Orochimaru. You know, considering Kishi said he wanted to move on to other ideas beyond Naruto, he sure is opening a hell of a lot of storylines.

I agree about the amount of storylines. I wonder how many more years he can put into it. Maybe Kakashi will be going on a separate mission to reach Sasuke or something of that sort.

Chunnin exam, well, I feel it aint gona happen, well, it might happen, but not as part in the main story, "I mean something might happen while the Chunnin exam is on!!".
I doubt that Naruto will be in a Chunnin exam now, I feel it will be something new like, an evaluation by 3 Jounins, or a test for him to evaluate his thinking and few tests or so, then he will be a Chunnin, you know how presistant Naruto will be when it will come to his Rank, and that how he will be a Chunnin, I guess.
Going through the whole thingy would take something like 30-40 episodes, and I guess Kishi is not into repeating himself, he will definitly come up with somthin new, see what I mean ;)

I'm kinda in the opinion that Kishimoto won't go through that mission. I might be the only one XD;;; I think that was just Kishi's way of closing off the arc, personally. To show that Yamato and Sai were still going to be a part of Team 7, but mostly for Sai. Besides, it was never said if it would take him out of the country or not. Nothing was said at all about the mission. Just that there was one.

I don't think that Naruto will go to the chuunin exam , he want to be stronger. He will train with Jiraya or Yamato or maybe kakashi.

I guess that aint gona happen, Kakashi is still exhausted, and personally, I think Yamato has some unique abilities where Kakashi aint gona be able to match them, and vise versa of course.
I think for the moment Yamato seems to be the best choice, actually if Gai was involved things, would really seems more intresting since we will see Naruto learning to how to fight a Sharingan user, but that aint gona happen to (at least Kishi seems not to be thinking of that!!!).

C4animax

On a more serious prediction, i believe that a jinchuurin will come to konoha, to ask for protection against akatsuki...that would be a good moment to introduce two new members of akatsuki...

Edit : OR sasuke oro and kabuto are already trying to take down konoha lol :D
edit 2 : I though that kishimoto might want to keep a bit yamato for his gene, since the first was dead, it will give him a nice character with amazing justu to play with .

I don't think that Naruto will go to the chuunin exam , he want to be stronger. He will train with Jiraya or Yamato or maybe kakashi.
I hope we will see kakashi next chapter. Maybe, Kakashi can learn Yondaime's jutsu to naruto
yamato, would be the best choice for keeping kyuubi out of his growth

Sasuke sealed the Kyuubi, I think. We shouldn't have to worry about it coming out for a while. Naruto's vowed not to rely on its power anyway. Aside from that, Yamato's jutsu and sealing ability is genetic: he had inerhited the cells of the Shodai. That jutsu is his and his alone.

Sasuke suppressed the Kyuubi's chakra at that moment and not sealed. They are two different things as the discussion and debate on 309 hammered out or was it 308? Sasuke doesnt have the ability to seal the Kyuubi.

corrrectamundo, he pushed back the kyuubi chakra for a while wich was a huge advantage for him during the fight.

but then again i think that naruto was more responsible for kyuubi not coming out than anything

as to "they" i do agree it's about akatsuki.

BEACON (according to Merriam-Webster):
"Etymology: Middle English beken, from Old English bEacen sign; akin to Old High German bouhhan sign
1 : a signal fire commonly on a hill, tower, or pole
2 a : a lighthouse or other signal for guidance b : a radio transmitter emitting signals for guidance of aircraft
3 : a source of light or inspiration"

so "they are coming".. and "BEACON"..? possiblities:
1. a party that will move into kanoha and they will do something with transmitting a signal for guiding others? (more like chuunin exam participants OR akatsuki is invlove here) or;
2. a party of people wil come to kanoha and somebody else (an alien) setup the 'beacon'(Chuunins AND Akatsuki are involve here)..
3. smell like espionage when the word 'THEY' and 'BEACON' come into midst.. akatsuki perhaps

whatever, i wish to read more predictions before the right answer come next week... gambattebaiyo minasan!!!!!

Want Akatsuki. Want more Deidara action. Want Itachi action. Seriously, I don't think we're going to see Akatsuki action for a few chapters yet. Kishi has developed a habit of taking the best bits of the manga and then making us wait an eternity for them. We want Akatsuki action? We won't see it for another 20 chapters, then when we get them, it'll last for 2. Then the arc will be over.

It seems that they are going to start focusing on their abilities within a team concept and independantly. Kishi can show some development with them as a team similar to the way Team Gai can coordinate attacks. After or during Team Kakashi development Naruto's new abilities will surface I see him beginning to plan attacks.

We, have always seen him fight seriously...lo
What you mean to say is that he will be fighting with HIS own power. Which is something even I, who is not a huge Naruto (character) fan want to see.

Hopefully this means more tactics from Naruto... and hopefully we will see shades of his improvement quickly, like early within the next arc. Something like him planning an attack with Yamato, Sakura and Sai... which is a stark contrast to his "I'LL USE MY RASENGAN" logic...lol

Anyways, i was thinking... What was the FIRST time Konoha's foundation was shaken? Kishi must be refering to the death of Sandaime when he mentions that... Does this mean there will be an assassination attempt on Tsunade? Who knows... But i have a feeling that someone will be dying soon... or else nothing will be really shaken up... lol

Naruto dropped his necklace and as far as I could see, in 310, he doesn't have it anymore.

Naruto still got the necklace. The crystal just got broken, that's all. Therefore, Yamato's jutsu probably won't work if he tries to use it. Now it's up to Naruto. Though we probably won't see action next chapter, hopefully we'll see some advanced training (though I think we're in for a conversational chapter again :mad).

I'm pretty sure the necklace broke, but we'll just have to see. As for more jinchuuriki, maybe, though if Kishi is trying to tie up loose ends, inputting more jinchuuriki will just introduce more. Not to mention that there are only nine at most. We've met Gaara and I believe it was said in the manga that Akatsuki have already drained another three. That means we got 4 unknown ones at most which have a higher possibility of being captured by the Akatsuki than being found by Naruto and co. Also, the storyline would be made more concise and action happen sooner if Naruto was the only one left.

Aye idd, but they allready captured 2 other instead of 3. So we got Naruto, Gaara (right?), and 2 others so it's possible that there are still 5 others remaining, unless some died because those demons came to the planet a long long time ago.

binkansarariman
June 12, 2006, 03:29 AM
it's something sure that akatsuki and more jinchuurikis will appear in the future episodes, just not sure chuunin exam wil be on or not.. but if there is a possibility of chuunin exam: sasuke and naruto surely will be in it.. as they both out of their territory for 2 and a half years.. and they are pretty much genin by contracts..

i guess it'd be very much interesting if there is a chuunin exam.. esp if we want to see akatsukis, team7 and Oro gangs clashes in the exam; everybody with their own wicked agendas.. and plus we can see of more new talents like Konohamaru's and from other hidden villages.. perhaps some old characters that Naruto once helped or even new jinchuurikis battled in the exam..

They're out on their Advanced Cat Rescue mission, see an SOS flare go up in the woods, and find Akatsuki trying to capture Next Jinchuuriki Target. But it's 2-tail, Nekomata, sworn enemy of the Kyuubi, and a three-way fight ensues.

As cool as seeing Kyuubi vs another jinchuuriki would be, I don't think it its going to happen in this arc. My reasoning is simply that in order to fight another Jinchuuriki Naruto will have to lose it again and use the Kyuubi chakra, possibly going KN4 (if he is losing) - and if Kishi fails to show Naruto using any new jutsu for the third arc running there is going to be a fan revolt.

Also in 310, Tsunade says 'I've got another mission lined up for you' in response to Naruto saying 'We're not giving up'. So perhaps the mission in Sasuke related. Maybe they have got wind of Itachi being nearby and they are going to use Naruto as bait.

I predict all four genin teams+Kakashi+Jiraiya+Tsunade vs Itachi+Kisame lol :p

I predict all four genin teams+Kakashi+Jiraiya+Tsunade vs Itachi+Kisame lol :p


There is no way it would require that kind of army to fight off kisame and itachi. Jiraiya, Gai and Neji could do it. Or any other group of 3 or 4. Itachi is extremely strong, but only against single target. If you double or triple team him, he's mortal. Think about Gai fighting him in his particular anti sharingan style, then Neji coming up from behind and giving him 64 strikes. :p These sort of things make me smile. Plus, Kisame would be completely destroyed by Jiraiya. If you even through in a couple more chunnins or genin (naruto), the fight becomes even more tilted. But quite frankly, i am just excited to see what happens.

Predictions:
>Mission is not important.
>Interruption by Konoha Invasion.
>Naruto is the target.
>Naruto shows what he learned with Jiraiya (Finally).

I think by they are coming, we can assume this means something external to Konoha (so not the roots, and to be honest, by now I think the roots are just people that want to live in peace and willing to do ANYTHING to maintain that peace)

Konoha could be shaken up in two ways, one they are attacked from the inside, or two a sercet of Konoha's History is brought to light, Maybe the sercet of the Ucicha(spelling) Clan or something. Beacon could be Konoha itself or a person, I do doubt the Akatusi, as they like to remain hidden. And having lost a member too recently, and almost lost another one to Naruto's new style of hitting someone with Resengan, they are not going to risk taking on Naruto in an area with so many enemy.

Could the shaken to the core statement have something to do with Root (Root and Core have similar meaning), maybe the mission that Tsunade was talking about has to do with investigating the Root, but then why would they bring Sai??

Also why does it say "The Leaf will be shaken to its core again"? Will something happen that has happened before? Maybe Chunnin exams, where "They're coming!" is referring to participants from the other hidden villages, and Core is referring to the Gennins...?

Basically I have no idea... :darn :p

Edit: I forgot about the Beacon part, well a beacon is something that stands out from the background, maybe It's referring to someone special who will appear, or maybe someone on the team will show/prove their strength... in the chunnin exam... ... ... seriously I have no idea.

i think their next mission is to train naruto to use his own chakra. the kyuubi chakra is now suppressed or hidden deeper beneath naruto's consciousness. he wont stand a chance against akatsuki if he is powerless.

c'mon kishi! give naruto some more of "THAT" jutsu. kage bunsihn, rasengan, oodama rasengan? thats 3 years man! ichigo became a shinigami and learned bankai in less than 2 mos!
hey i think sai with all his root training, would be the perfect helper( next teacher, best trained by someone on the level of hokage( danzou) to get naruto's chakra under control, i mean he's so controlled.

Will we finally get to see what "that" justsu is??

On a side note, I think the fourth hokage is Naruto's father. Maybe "that" jutsu will enable Naruto to communicate or exchange places with him?

I think by they are coming, we can assume this means something external to Konoha (so not the roots, and to be honest, by now I think the roots are just people that want to live in peace and willing to do ANYTHING to maintain that peace)

Konoha could be shaken up in two ways, one they are attacked from the inside, or two a sercet of Konoha's History is brought to light, Maybe the sercet of the Ucicha(spelling) Clan or something. Beacon could be Konoha itself or a person, I do doubt the Akatusi, as they like to remain hidden. And having lost a member too recently, and almost lost another one to Naruto's new style of hitting someone with Resengan, they are not going to risk taking on Naruto in an area with so many enemy.


Akatsuki is coming to propose a deal to Tsunade: "Give us Naruto, or we'll shake you up good"
Tsunade refuses, of course, so akatsuki disappears... To propose the same deal to Danzou.
"Take Naruto for us, and we will not destroy Konoha"
Danzou would chose to trade rather than risk the safety of Konoha... Que battle between Danzou and Tsunade.

ANBU, the best person under ROOTS, a chuunin, great medic and apperentice of the fith and a Jinchuuriki, genin also the ero-sannin apperintice! something is eerie about that. Then Sasuke is missing and Kakashi is still injured. so team 7 goes on the mission ends up seeing Sasuke and then Orochimaru decides to use them as pawns to kill the akatsuki members. Also he mentioned the Akatsuki moving in on them. I just have a feeling something big is going to happen.

Sai is reading about how to get along socially with people. (dropping san and kun and stuff from names, being familiar and such, not really important just character developement)
Sakura invites him to go meet the team leader Kakashi. (some joke stuff in between not really important)
Naruto tried to tell Kakashi about Sasuke, but he says he's already heard from Yamato.
Naruto says he isn't strong enough to take Sasuke back by force, and they talk about how Sasuke's developement is unnaturally fast.
Kakashi says all they have to do is become stronger than Sasuke then.
He says he's been thinking of a training that is best suited for/only possible by Naruto, and that this training will in some ways make him surpass Kakashi.

Jiraiya is a slacker.. it makes sense that Naruto didn't really develope too much.

BTW. the "THAT" justsu was just the kuibi tails deal. Naruto didn't learn anything else, otherwise he would have used it during the whole "save sasuke" mission.

i've said it before, there is a reason y kishi has not shown any of naruto's jutsu's that he may have learnt. i still aint to sure where he is going with this but im sure its got suming to do with kakashi talking about training naruto.

on another note.....KAKASHI IS BACK WOOOP.....hopefully now we will see more of his mangekyou or it will at least explain how he got it. this also leaves an opening for more character development in the other teams.

well since sakura was talking purely about sasuke's abnormal speed, I would think its a speed jutsu, and well we all have been exposed to hiraishin no jutsu in the kakashi gaiden, kakashi said that with this training naruto would even surpass kakashi himself, what do you guys think about this?

Elmdorz
June 15, 2006, 05:55 AM
Oh well, we all know what kind of teacher jiraiya is now hes a hermit and what not. Im sure he was much different when he trained the 4th. Either way its interesting to see Kakashi has special training for naruto. As far as the chapter prediction, i guess kishi has his own way of interpreting things. I mean for one, "they're coming" to him meant team 7 coming to visit Kakashi, because that is what happened. As far as beacon, though there physically wasnt a beacon it must of been symbolic to him i suppose. Oh well I like the chapter.

jabbament
June 15, 2006, 06:09 AM
Well, if you look up Beacon on dictionary.com, part of the definitions is:


1. A signaling or guiding device, such as a lighthouse, located on a coast.
2. A radio transmitter that emits a characteristic guidance signal for aircraft.
3. A source of guidance or inspiration.
4. A signal fire, especially one used to warn of an enemy's approach.

#3. A Source of guidance or inspiration.

Now that Team-Kakashi is left wondering how they'll save Sasuke (maybe even about how they're going to fight him if he's beyond saving), Kakashi has something planned to make Naruto's strength surpass Sasuke's. (i.e. he was their Beacon of Hope.)


And for next week...I don't know, I think it'd be interesting if Kakashi did Tsukyomi Naruto and them...that would solve the time problem with Akatsuki in Konoha or Orochimaru making another move at Konoha...since the training could theoretically be finished in a second earth time.

We know that Itachi can hold that world for at least 3 days...we don't know if that's the limit or if its just something he choose randomly to avoid wasting his time (since it feels like 3 days for him also), or if it drains too much of his strength.

If the training was done that way, then Kakashi is going to end up right back in the Hospital (since he isn't fully recovered it seems)...which means Yamoto will have a chance to shine...hopefully...! Unless of course the training turns Naruto into high Jounin maybe even Hokage level randomly...well, Hokage level would be kinda lame, so a high Jounin level it is!

That sounds like a really plausible idea, and it'd be awesome to see more Naruto/Kakashi interaction, now Sasuke isn't being trained by Kakashi anymore he can show off some of his less Sharingan related abilities and teach them to naruo. I doubt it's hiraishin though because I think it'd need the combined efforts of Jiraiya and Kakashi over an extended period of time, something Kakashi doesn't have. This is one on one between Naruto and Kakashi, probably intense training.

I imagine then that in the background there will be Sai character development - meet the rookie 9. We can also see some around town interaction and get a chance to see how the other rookies are doing, this part would probably be played by Sakura if she goes on missions a la naruto filler style, with random members from the other teams.

It's a far stretch but I think my first paragraph is pretty accurate. I'd fucking love it if Kakashi told Naruto about his father during the training (guess who?), and tells him about HIS bloodline limit, relating to stamina.

enzomars
June 15, 2006, 07:29 AM
Haha ... i wonder if Itachi 've been doing the same thing over all those years ... tsukiyoming him self and training in his
virtual world. Wich would explain how his stronger than Kakashi though he's younger than him :-)
Can't wait to see if it's really what Kakashi had in mind hehe!

If someone can teach Hiraishin to Naruto it can only be Kakashi. Remember that he was still in Yondi's team after Obito got killed
so he had the occasion to see him (yondi) doing it ( Hiraishin no jutsu) with his new eye (sharingan). So Kakashi may know the
theory or principles behind Hiraishin.

crakbaby23
June 15, 2006, 07:43 AM
well they mainly focused on how fast sasuke was, so it has to be some sort of speed training, kakashi is prolly the fastest(next to Gai?) jounin in the leaf, altho i do feel kinda upset, its like naruto hasn't learned anything wile training with jiraya, his attitude has changed to, he use to love training ninjutsu but in his convo with sakura he said he doesnt even feel like doin it

jabbament
June 15, 2006, 07:58 AM
Eh, I do kinda question the training Naruto received. My guess is that it was more a long the lines of:

"Naruto, learn how to control the Kyuubi and you'll become much stronger..."
(Jiraya was the one who said that since Naruto had so much Chakra, he should work on learning how to tap into it and use powerful jutsu...)

2.5 years learning how to control a demon's power? Seems a lot more reasonable than:

The whole hour it took Ichigo to make his hollow submit...


About the whole Kakashi knowing the fundimentals of Hiraishin, its possible yeah. I find it hard to believe that someone as wise as Sandaime (and who knew hundreds of jutsu) failed to document things he's learned over the years, and the same with Yondaime...considering he had some very unique (and helluva strong) abilities, I don't think its beyond belief that he'd have documents how he discovered and was able to use some of the techniques he was able to. He was a genius, he loved his village, and I don't think he'd want to potentially weaken his village by letting all of his jutsu and knowledge die.
Not to mention Yondaime was active in the last Great Ninja War...and I believe he was smart enough to know he wasn't invincible, and since he's the complete opposite of Naruto (as Naruto is right now), he'd have kept something prepared incase he died...

But, this just random speculation on my part. I'm helluva curious as to what this training is going to be. :amuse

Yeah, Gai is fastest Jounin (we don't know all of the Jounin, but when Gai opens some of his Life Gates he blows everyone away with his speed and strength)...although, Kakashi has the ability to open an unknown number of Life Gates himself...(I know he opens the first gate in the Anime...I'll have to check the manga.)

my prediction is hiraishin no jutsu + kage bunshin (tajyuu kage bunshin if necessary). essentially yondaime's jutsu taken to another level.

Wait sorry. Actually, the better idea is hiraishin no jutsu + tajyuu kage bunshin + rasengan. bwahahahaha....

2.5 year Naruto was training with Jiraya….most of people think that he should learned a lot of techniques, you’ll have remember talk between Jiraya and Orochimaru during Sannin battle, their different opinions in question “Who is ninja”. Jiraya didn’t say that he will “teach” Naruto new jitsu but “train”. We know that Jiraya thought that Naruto should be able to use demon chakra sleeping in him(he didn’t knew what we’ll happen if Naruto get inpatient). We have seen Naruto developing in previous chapters with using his clones, scrolls with weapons (no doubt several strong jitsus Jiraya have teached Naruto like “that” jitsu), even normal kuybi form(I mean the form when he used Oodoma rasengan), but cause of his character this trainig goes further on and naruto even lost himself in fourth kyubi mode.
I am more interested in new training. Why only naruto can do it? It’s obvious that it won’t be kuybi connected, but his stamina and great amount of chakra? Even Kabuto said (during Chuunin Exams) that Naruto will become monster if he’ll able not to waste his chakra.

What a great chapter!
1. The training. Oh! Only Naruto can complete it? It must require huge amounts of chakra. First feeling is the Hiraishin.
2. The new submystery between Kakashi and Sai. Why would Kakashi have heard about Sai? Would he know of Sai because he is a member of root? Is Sai on the all-time top10 assassins of Konoha? When Sai states that Kakashi has probably heard of him, my immediate thought was from the Wave Country Arc, "In this world, there exists kids younger than you, yet stronger than me."
3. I was wondering if there would be some Sai and Sakura romance just to piss off Naruto. There is still room for it. But hopefully, this little exchange takes the romance out of Team7.

I don't know what lucribrate is or means, do you mean lubricate? and if so, just exactly what do you do in the library?

Naruto studying ninjutsu for a few chapters would be more interesting than Hiraishin. In light of the fact that Kishimoto spent 4 or so pages talking about the library and baka Naruto, the library training would not be far-fetched.

Doubt it, the way Kakashi worded it was that he would be taking part in his training, teaching him. I hardly call pointing out books for him to read is training, especially when at this point the kind of things that would help him wouldn't be learned in books - forbidden jutsus. Besides, the lovable naruto would never sit and read books.

Quote from that oh-so-wonderful dictionary.com for lucubrating (which is what I think he meant):

lu·cu·brate Pronunciation Key (lky-brt)
intr.v. lu·cu·brat·ed, lu·cu·brat·ing, lu·cu·brates

To write in a scholarly fashion; produce scholarship.

Hirashin training is more boring than Naruto sitting around reading? Personally, I'd much rather watch him do something physical rather than "training his mind"...how exciting can things be with Naruto reading a book?

It's of course true that Naruto is a moron when it comes to books and school, but that's one of those things I don't think is going to change till he's 5+ years older and has fully matured (he still acts like a kid, 'cuz he is a kid...and the normal kid doesn't like school and learning).

I enjoy chapters with more text in them...I hope the next few chapters we have a good balance instead of a whole lot of pages of action and absoutely no plot...and I'm with everyone who wants to know the truth about Naruto and Yondaime, and I also hope to find out why the hell Naruto has never asked.

Kakashi training Naruto would be awesome (and what Naruto has wanted since back during the Chuunin Exam). :p

Didn't it say he might have been on drugs or he might have learned a forbidden jutsu? Haven't read enough different translations yet for me to be sure.


She said it was a possibility. Literally. Trust me on this one. I might not be Nihongaeri, but I didn't get that little legend that says "Translator" for nothin' ;)


Here's the line:

"When I asked Tsunade-Sama about it, she said there was the possibility that they'd used kinjutsu and administered drugs during his training...seeing as how they have Kabuto with them..."

As I understand it, it's not so much that he used Kinjutsu per se, but that kinjutsu was used to enhance his abilities - whether Orochimaru and Kabuto used it on him or if he used it himself is a moot point - though it was probably both. The point is that it was for ability enhancing purposes.

Well, I liked this chapter a lot better than the last one. We saw Naruto's still not completely over Sasuke's attitude, so that's always a good sign.

On the other hand, Kakashi's "well, become stronger" response kinda irked me, :darn .

You could also see the "busu" (butt-ugly) line coming a mile away... :tem

I think it's likely what Kakashi's talking about *is* Hiraishin no jutsu. See, the line is: "Aru imi de ore wo koeru kamoshirenai..."

"You might even surpass *me*, so to speak/in a certain way."

What is tantilizing to note is that he's not saying Naruto will become stronger, just that "you could say" he'll "overtake him." While it's not the only possible interpretation, I think he's referring to speed.

Hiraishin no jutsu is shunshin no jutsu. Shunshin is speed enhancement through chakra. The speed and distance one travels in an instant determines the amount of chakra expended. Since even without the kyuubi Naruto has a considerable amount of chakra, it stands to reason that having even greater control over it could confer him the ability to use shunshin like the rest only wish they could.

Plus - I mean, Naruto = learns the Fourth's Jutsus. We had a rasengan arc in part one, and the Fourth used Hiraishin even more than rasengan, so it stands to reason we'll now have a "hiraishin arc."

well about the 2.5 years naruto went with jiraiya, I think it went well, fpr people who dont remeber naruto is still 15 years old and still a genin, now jiraiy lifted his whole level alltogether, as in speed, skill, weaponry, use of kage bunshin and modifying his jutsus like the rasengan.
just look at the difference between naruto at the first bell test and the second, he was able to keep up with kakashi for a while, he had no openings when kakshi tried to get him, I call that improvement, never the less his improvement has been overshadowed by his opponenents, akatsuki, orochimaru, and sasuke, we are talking about the few best ninja's that exist in naruto's world and he was able to keep up with them, that means he is good.
second thing is, I loved this chapter with all the team sevenconversation, sai is just like a little kid, he should try and do things differently than manuals sometimes, he actually seemed adorable in this chapter :amuse.
finally, I said before in this thread that I expect the jutsu to be hiraishin, for three reasons which are first, sakura concentrated on how fast sasuke was and the need to be able to approach his speed, second was that the jutsu was only suitable for naruto, third is becuase kakashi said it would make naruto more powerful than even him, which hiraishin kind of fits, so tell me what you guys think about this arguement.

last thing is I agree with iwanin that the next arc will be similar to the rasengan arc in means of training,
he will learn a new jutsu after the principles being explained and such, though the real work would be quite hard after the theory.

Great chapter! Angst to the minimum and actual good times! "hag" :XD

Even if Naruto gets "stronger" than Kakashi, he still has a loooong way to go before he gets near Kakashi's experience and knowledge. If we compare their chakra capacity and endurance/stamina, Naruto should be already "stronger" than Kakashi but we know (for obvious reasons) that's not true.

Granted, Naruto had a 2.5 years of training with a legendary sannin (which is the sentence cool kids are using nowdays :eyeroll :amuse), but that didn't show because Naruto wasted most of his chakra (and Kyuubi trumph card) on Orochimaru and thus rendered him useless against a just rested Sasuke.

Also, it seems that most people here are really desperate for Naruto to learn more jutsus the 4th used (namely, the hiraishin jutsu), I don't mind that but it would certainly diminish the traits that made Yondaime unique.

Eh, in the persuit of power, in his mind, there is no such thing as cheating. :p


It's only cheating if you get caught! :eyeroll ~heh!

Orochimaru might consider twice the drugs that his next host (Sasuke) is consuming, you know, the "shrinkage" of certain body parts because of the use of steroids... Sai is ought to have a ball with this fact.



About the whole Kakashi knowing the fundimentals of Hiraishin, its possible yeah. I find it hard to believe that someone as wise as Sandaime (and who knew hundreds of jutsu) failed to document things he's learned over the years, and the same with Yondaime...considering he had some very unique (and helluva strong) abilities, I don't think its beyond belief that he'd have documents how he discovered and was able to use some of the techniques he was able to. He was a genius, he loved his village, and I don't think he'd want to potentially weaken his village by letting all of his jutsu and knowledge die.

But for Naruto to inherit them at this point?, don't know but I feel that's unlikely to happen. A Kyuubi-based training or learning to work around the sharingan are more plausible plots.

Actually, I think the last arc served to effectively "strip the kyuubi" from Naruto. In other words, it's now established that Naruto can no longer rely on it.

1. He does so, and he puts his friends at risk, plus his lifespan decreases.
2. It's useless against Sasuke.

On the other hand, the speed conferred by hiraishin could work wonders against sharingan by making Naruto faster than the eye can see.

So I'm guessing Kakashi will have Naruto learn teleportation jutsus and make Sakura study genjutsu...

Maybe not at this point, but eventually perhaps. Yamoto is doing his best to seal off Kyuubi's powers (which is why he was selected to stand in for Kakashi), so Naruto doesn't hurt himself...so, as long as Yamoto is around, Naruto can't rely on the Kyuubi's powers (and yes, Naruto still has his necklace).

Well, extreme speed would work around the Sharingan more than anything else, no? I'm not saying I want Naruto to become "omgwtfbbqinsanelylolpowerfulroflmao" strong...but at least let him keep up.

But yeah, the training is going to be interesting...it does seem like Kakashi is going to train Naruto, but Kakashi is still recovering (isn't he?), so I wonder how he's going to manage...

What annoys me about Naruto's development, even if he picks up Hiraishin, is how he's so... limited. That is to say, I've been wanting him to be a more intelligent, thoughtful, tactical ninja with a wide variety of jutsu and techniques at his disposal - of course his particular techs will have a certain slant, but if he wants to be Hokage, learning Hiraishin is not simply going to cut it. Sure, we think Hiraishin has lots of uses, but typically Naruto only uses his jutsu in really stupid ways - from going Kyuubi to simply gain a power boost to using Rasengan with abandon to Kage Bunshining for anything and everything. (side note: It feels like most of my friends and I that talk about Naruto together are confident that Naruto hasn't really picked up anything additional from Jiraiya, because if he had we probably would have seen it by now.) I predict Naruto will learn Hiraishin through some flaky (read: non-standard-Naruto-style) method and then use it in very specific (read: nonversatile) ways in every single experience he will ever have in the future.

Versus Sasuke, Hiraishin will give Naruto an advantage, but I don't expect it to end the battle - Sasuke'll think of something to counter it (because Sasuke actually forms strategies as opposed to Naruto's random luck and flashes of insight) and then Naruto will need to improve more and blah blah blah.

and as much as I want Sakura to study genjutsu, it's useless against Sasuke... but probably useful everywhere else. although it might be interesting if Sakura could learn some anti-Sharingan defenses...

and slightly off topic, it would help if Kishimoto got the other members of the original Rookie 9 involved in learning some anti-Sharingan tactics too.. first person I'm thinking of is Neji... but anyway, yeah.

Don't expect Naruto to get "smart" until damn near the end of the series. It's where he's lacking the most, but his lack of intellect is part of his charm, so to speak. So I don't really think "hiraishin" will even the odds - it's just what comes next.

I'm betting Naruto will develop his own original jutsu only at the very end, because he needs to "become smarter" to do that.

Also, notice that other than Kakashi and Itachi, no character Kishimoto's ever made has made use of various different types of jutsu: they all have their "style" and develop variations on it. All we saw Sasuke do a couple of chapters ago is some variations on Chidori. In fact, pretty much the only two "generic" jutsu are "kagebunshin", "kawarimi" and "kuchiyose." Naruto uses Kagebunshin to the point he doesn't need kawarimi, and he can already (sometimes) summon Gamabunta, so...

i agree. Naruto being stupid or low in the mental faculty business is a theme for many manga super strong heroes (Goku, Ichigo are clear examples). Him becoming smart- i dont think so. He probably will become smarter in the use of techniques to fight.

So, if that "Jutsu" that jiraiya referred to isnt Hiraishin, then this may be it ( i presume kakashi saw Yondai use it). But whatever the case, you got to love SAI- he is my favorite character now.

Something tells me that Jiraiya taught Naruto the basics of Hiraishin but since Jiraiya never full learned it he couldnt completely teach him it. Kakashi probably spent alot of time talking to Jiraiya while in the hospital and with Kakashi "Copy Cat" ing it he could fill in the holes that Jiraiya left out. Like maybe we watch Naruto use it and he teleports himself straight up in the air and falls down, or flys into a tree or something.
Thats probably why Jiraiya would tell him dont use it, because he couldnt reliably control it.

Even with Hiraishin i still think it would take more for him to over come Sasuke, even if hes faster than him he cant touch him because of flowing Chidori.

Hiraishin is used in conjunction with seals that are placed on something/someone.

Its not a random teleportation jutsu. Need proof?

A Seal is placed on that guys foot. (http://www.myimagehub.com/files/3236/narutocrap/naruto_ch240_p08.png)

Yondaime senses the seal and... (http://www.myimagehub.com/files/3236/narutocrap/naruto_ch240_p09.png)

Appears behind that guy and offs him. (http://www.myimagehub.com/files/3236/narutocrap/naruto_ch240_p10.png)
(Note, Rin is mistaken...if that was just his Shunshin no jutsu we wouldn't have seen him place a seal...and besides, Rin isn't Yondaime and doesn't know exactly what he was doing. And Yondaime's normal speed was legendary, so she wouldn't be able to tell a difference.)

Here, he kills 50 enemy Ninja. (http://www.myimagehub.com/files/3236/narutocrap/naruto_ch242_p04-05.png)
He doesn't randomly teleport or summon another dimension that lets him warp around or any crap like that. He has those 4 Ninja throw a whole bunch of Kunai with his special seal on them (the same seal that Yondaime placed on that guys foot), and as they throw them, he teleports between all the Kunai and slaughters away.

And Yondaime was nowhere near Kakashi... (http://www.myimagehub.com/files/3236/narutocrap/naruto_ch244_p16.png)
But he still managed to teleport there from quite a distance.

Its all about the seals... ;)

For Naruto, learning how to use the seals and learning how to teleport to them is going to be hard. (If he ever learns how to use it...Yondaime was an incredible genius.)

thanks for the info Jabbament, I didn't notice the seal thing the first time i read it!
I don't think it would be too cool if Naruto became fast anyways, I mean it doesn't suit his character style. maybe with kyuubi, but characters like Sasuke and Kakashi suit speed. Lee and Gai are taijutsu specialists so that works too. (btw Sakura isn't talking about Sasuke's speed specifically, she says "seichou speed" which is speed of developement/growth)
but if it's not speed he's working on then what could it be? Sakura has power now (like tsunade), so if Naruto became physically stronger than her she'd be overshadowed.

I have no idea what the training will be.

naruto has grown, he was gettin' into it , but who expected a full body chidori.??

Two big revelations then, Sasuke may be using kinjutsu to make himself stronger, or he's taking drugs and Naruto is about to learn something to make him own... sorry, sorry, pwn everyone.

It's kinda funny at the fact that as soon as Sasuke kicks their asses they blame it on steroids.

It's weird how Naruto didn't learn much from Jiraiya, but then again Jiraiya never did have much confidence in Naruto's abilities as far as his aptitude with ninjutsu, always muttering to himself how Naruto was a complete scrub with that stuff. It seems like during the three years of their training Jiraiya focused more on bringing out the Kyuubi because he believed - perhaps wrongly - that the Kyuubi was Naruto's greatest weapon. He even says this specifically once, that Kyuubi would be Naruto's trump card and that he would have to learn how to control it. Jiraiya never had much faith in Naruto without Kyuubi; though he did admire his pupil's determination he decided the best way to direct that was to have him try to harness Kyuubi's full powers.

The three years of training with Jiraiya then were to bring Naruto's bijuu to its current capacity of the four-tailed incarnation. Jiraiya realizes this is a mistake later of course when he finds out Naruto can't remember what he's doing at this four-tailed state; that bijuu CAN'T be completely harnessed even with Naruto's incredible determination and his own enormous chakra. These past three years then were effectively "wasted," as Naruto might have learned some new tricks, such as Rasengan with bunshins, the primary thrust of his training has proven, albeit powerful, also dangerous to his allies, and hence useless (btw why is Naruto still using two clones to Rasengan, when he did one-hand rasengan in the Valley of the End in the Kyuubi state after his left hand was incapacitated?)

Now, the training Kakashi proposes (I don't think it will be Kakashi doing the actual Teaching, since it's said that the training is something Naruto can only do himself; also, though Naruto and co. still call Kakashi teacher, Kakashi's not really in that capacity anymore, as he says at the beginning of part 2) will entail some secret revealed about Naruto's heritage, since I think it's implied that only Naruto can go through this power training. Why Naruto? What's special about him as a ninja, besides being the container of the Kyuubi? And in my opinion the training cannot involve the Kyuubi, since Jiraiya already trained Naruto in the ways of the Kyuubi, so why only Naruto? There HAS to be some secret about Naruto, some backstory... that entails that the power offered will be his alone.[br]Posted on: June 15, 2006, 03:05:56 PM_________________________________________________Also, I don't think we'll be seeing any copies of Yondaime's jutsu. Sasuke's currently at the stage of inventing his own jutsu with Chidori Nagashi; Naruto won't be able to hold his own by learning or copying some legendary jutsu from the past. The point is that this era now belongs to the generation of Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura; we will be seeing new jutsu from them that they make or adapt themselves. Part 1 of Naruto was about adolescent training from the legendary figures of the previous generation; Part 2 should be about self-learning if there is to be any instruction at all.

i can't quote you king, so

@king jiraiya wanted him to be able to take out as much of the kyuubi chakra as needed without him going ape shiza

just from the bell test kbs', and meeting chiyo for the first time kbs' he seems pretty improved, and coordinated.

he's now buddy, buddy with kyuubi...hellooo!

i'm telling you guys, kakashi is gonna tsukyomi naruto( don't tell me that no one thought about it when itachi first did it to kakashi??

i was like hmmn, y'know if there was some way for naruto to get itachi to help him train by using a "nice" version of that whole 3 days in a split second thing, that would be just like THE ROOM OF SPIRIT AND TIME from dbz!!!! hmmmn.

now look who has a ms :XD :XD :XD

im not paying attention to any other conversations or, points but what i think is the training is for Shushin no jutsu kakashi knows how its done but lacks the "skills" to perform it,

and in 309 i think it was with sasuke and orochimaru stopping him doing "that" jutsu , he was doing kuchiosei edo tensei

well here is the a thread that has the data book page of hiraishin no jutsu, translated by pazuzu.

by the way the clothing of everyone in this chapter seemed a bit better, sasuke loet the ridiculous shirt that stops above his torso and is wearing new normal clothes, naruto is wearing a normal shirt and trousers and the shirt seems to be a dark colour instead of orange, and sakura's clothes changed a bit too.

um, I think you meant to say Sai lost that ridiculous shirt that stops above his torso.

GREAT CHAPTER
surpassing kakashi omfg, this training is going to be intense
but if kakashi thought of this, why doesn't he go through the training also

I missed the part about the seals good catch on that.

Id like to see naruto thinking alot about the Flowing Chidori and maybe taking his Rasengan to the next level the way sasuke up'd his game.

An idea would be Field Rasengan, Using Clones and an IMMENSE amount of Chakra to surround the target in a giant rasengan that implodes.

i uhh.. kinda called the whole druggy thing... sorry had to get that out there. druggy sasuke, it was so obvious. anyway, i think the special training will definitly be dangerous and i'm hoping it's hiraishin.

Good chapter. It's interesting to see how Sai and Sasuke are mirroring each other, with one connecting more with his emotions while the other is shutting them off.

It certainly will be interesting to see what training Kakashi has for Naruto. I doubt it will be the hiraishin. More likely it will be related to countering the sharingan. Remember, Kakashi spent some one-on-one time training Sasuke and might have some insights.

So after three years of training under a sannin, naruto is not up to kakashi level.naruto is really shit

Wow, another "training with Naruto" arc...At least when the anime catches up to this point they'll have a good reason to pad his training with fillers.

If Naruto takes another sidelined training session that goes on -- for more than 3 chapters -- I think I'll pass. Been there. done that. seeing it again.


I hope Kishimoto isn't running out of new ideas, and looping everything that is Naruto back to being Yondaime-related. Honestly, Naruto has had 3 years of training already, and nothing much manifested, how much more does he want us to see?

Kakashi is one of Konoha's top Jounin's (hell probably THE top Jounin). If Naruto (a Genin), came out of his 2.5 years of training at Kakashi level, that would have been a horrible move on Kishimoto's part. The fact that Naruto didn't reappear overpowered (unlike thew new Sasuke), keeps things interesting.

Yeah...hopefully its not as long as the Rasengan training...

Then the solution is simple. Take a few weeks break from Naruto, and wait till things pick up again. A lot of people (myself included) are looking forward to this training. Reading 3-4 new chapters back to back is a great thing. :p

And running out of new ideas? We don't know the relationship between Naruto and Yondaime (which, is hopefully going to be revealed soon). If Naruto is indeed Yondaime's son, why shouldn't Naruto follow in his father's footsteps and learn some of the techniques that made him so awesome?

And we didn't see any of Naruto's training...maybe in a flashback or two, but that's all. Seeing this Chuunin level Naruto training is probably going to be a lot more intense than the Rasengan training...and there's nothing stopping Kishimoto from interrupting the training with something big.

No one knows where Kishimoto is taking the Manga. All we can do is trust in him to keep giving us awesome chapter after awesome chapter. He won't let us down.
