So after the flashback, we still have Naruto vs. A? That pretty much disappoints anyone who thought that A could be persuaded with words. I somehow knew this would happen. A is to big of a hot head to be able to listen.
I hope Raikage makes a clear indication how Minato was faster then his Raiton armour! Like in the middle of the fight with Naruto. Personaly i never belived the old ox could be persuaded with words.
He is hot headed and was made to be a tyrant in the last chapter but I still think he is the same person we were first introduced to. He is a very caring man despite his exterior but will look past his personal feelings for the protection of his village and the ninja world.
I really wished to see A in more combat so we could see if he has more up his sleeves than his nintaijutsu but at the same time I really wish he wouldn't waste his time and chakra on scolding Naruto and Bee and would instead combine forces with them. Shikaku is more than enough to take care of the decisions and strategies no matter how you look at it so it would leave room for the four to go on a rampage.
Damn, I was wishing for a longer flashback of Ee's past. I can't see us getting another chance to see it again.
He saidt that Minato was faster than HIM. He probably included Raiton Armor because that ability is his. It's HIM. We can close that debate, seriously. Of course he's a caring man, but blinded as well. I hope Naruto shows him his true powers to shut his mouth once and for all.
The only person who can reach the Raikage with words is probably KB the only way I see this having a talk ending is if KB somehow convince the Raikage to trust in him thus in Naruto too. Otherwise Naruto will have to prove himself with his fists.
People are making complicated things out of simplicity. Believing is one thing, but you have now as a fact that A himself said that he is faster. There is no details, no complications. He simply said that Minato is faster in general. Speculating any further isn't really gonna get you any new info.
I think the only way for Naruto to be faster than the Raikage is that he uses hiraishin but nothing suggests he knows it or is even capable of doing it. (since when can naruto make "seals"? he seems better at undoing them).
We probably won't know until the next databook, if at all. I'd really like for Naruto and Raikage to engage in a brief skirmish, where Naruto shows that he can beat or at least push Raikage, but if I cannot have that, Naruto speeding past him would be acceptable for now.
the spoiler has something about both bee and A fighting minato

Nothing less from the man known as Konoha's Yellow Flash. Believe it!
Kishi has been taking what was "hype" around Minato from Part I and adding the reality to back it up. I am impressed.
I really hope Minato kicked their asses. But if that were true, A would have a little bit more respect for Naruto, I think.
