*in a low-pitched voice* I am back baby. Alright let me get to business. Note that I haven’t done any ‘reviewing’ in a year or so...so take it easy,
Naruto 582 short doodle
Thanks to the respective scanlation groups whose work to get the chapter read for us.
And fyi in advance, beoble = people, just in a different accent.
So the fight between the Uchiha brothers and Kabuto continues with an interesting powerup for sage mode[though note that this power seems to be specific to Kabuto’s SM]. So Kabuto’s SM allows him to control inanimate landscape and objects. And obviously, Sasuke is learning about Sage mode and how to deal with it, and that's all there's to it.
A quick thought: if the same mechanics from Naruto’s SM works, then the penis-snake[I am still wondering dafuq is that] is gathering natural energy for Kabuto?
See kids, that's what happens when you take too much viagra...
And as you can tell from the chapter, Itachi gets impaled while protecting the sauce. Of course, common sense aided by Kabuto’s comment says that Itachi could have blocked that attack had he focused on himself and not Sasuke, but that’s a topic that needs a specific thread of its own.
In this chapter, we get a continuation of the usual brotherly theme: Itachi is still protective of Sasuke, by any means, even though Sasuke can defend himself, via Susanoo or other methods >_>.
It is also interesting to see Sasuke use Amaterasu defensively. Much like he did against Raikage
The next half of the chapter is about a rather boring background and sob story of Kabuto and an orphanage run by some greedy bastards and a loving medical ninja...you know, the typical emotional jibber-jabber.
Sadly for Kabuto, after many sad stories and tragic characters, the impact of Kabuto's story is average, if not subpar .
On a side note, I can dibs that Kabuto gets forced to clean the orphanage and gets bullied by other kiddies.
*cough* much like a certain Disney princess*cough*.
The King doesn't approve. See, he has that look in his right eye
And note that Kabuto is drawing a whole parallel with Tobi’s “I ain’t no one”: Either Kishi’s running low on ideas or it is just a chance for Sasuke to practice arguing against Tobi if he ever talks with him man-to-man.
But kishi is one crafty bastard, if you ask me. I am glad Itachi and Sauce, not Naruto, are fighting Kabuto. You want to know why? Very simple...the sob fest that would result would be so horrible: it’d make Nagato’s magical conversion to the good side seem decent in comparison. Yes it is that bad, people. For example, imagine this following interaction between Naruto and Kabuto:
And they’d all hug and become BFF. *shrugs* this would make mentally unstable Sasuke look very interesting. Seriously, who isn’t entertained by a crazy mentally unstable character?
- Naruto: I was nobody, hated by many beoblez and I had a magical evil fox, but all that changed. Now i have a new oversized kitten, i met my parents in my stomach [disgusting....], and beoble like me nao, like totally. All this happened because I hugged everybody while making rasengans on the side.
- Kabuto: I didn’t know my parents, my cat died [I call dibs on this too], and now i have a penis-like snake coming out of my belly button. Help me!
- Gaara out of nowhere: I used to think my parents hated me so muuccch like o-am-geee, but it turns out they loved me . They just didn’t know how to put it in words... so they used to send ninjas with pointy knives to ‘tell’ me
Just look at that lovable insane face, don't you want to smack the hell out of him?
But ya, the one thing Uchihas did well is to never stoop so low in love, and cheesy emotions. Look at Madara, despite his extreme displeasure of the kages and his nostalgia towards Hashirama, he’s pretty badass and a beast, and very likable if you ask me.
Anyways, the chapter overall was alright. It adds more depth to Kabuto’s character and ties most of this arc's characters together; though, one can argue some of the work kishi did was rushed.
As for the next chapter, I'd expect more drama from Kabuto. Nothing more, nothing less.
And as always, your comments are welcome.
Thank you for reading the Baron's review
