Yes, Hinata is thinking about Naruto's big, strong
hand and holding it tightly
No way, Sakura will come in.... soon! A-and slap Hinata off him!
Those two are dull, blonexblonde (NarutoxIno) ftw!
We all know the only one Naruto cares to be paired with is Sasuke
Naruto will die, pairingless.
Why? We all know Naruto will get all the bitches in the end
Hiashi (Hinata's father) is going to air palm Naruto for grabbing Hinata's hand.
Hinata's then reaction
On a serious note, I'm glad Naruto finally acknowledge Hinata as being the one who is always by his side, since when he was being a zero to a hero.
It seems Obito himself is unconsciously doubting this whole illusion world plan, since he wants Naruto who resemble himself in the past to validate what he is doing is correct and the only right path. Hence, he wants to know Naruto's answser, which is something Obito himself has yet to truly find, what he is doing now is what Madera wanted and he went along because he has no better answer himself.
And Naruto has already "let people down" before, this isn't anything new for him. So again, I fail to see why he is regressing as a character.

With Sasuke, he went ape shit because his seal was strong. Only a small portion of the foxes chakra leaked out so he didn't lose control.
With Hinata, he was helpless and the seal was weak and thus the fox took over.
Here, we have Kurama confronting him and not taking control because they're "buds" now. If that wasn't the case, he would have lost control.
IMO, we've seen this twice before, there was no need for a round 3. I wanted to see him get angry, to cry, to do anything but roll up into a ball and give up. I wasn't expecting him to give Obito some answer, but I wanted some kind of response other than what happened. It's regressive because this Naruto we are seeing is supposed to be able to stand up on his own two feet without anyone helping him. Not helping him in the battle sense, but helping him in an emotional sense. He's lost so much already, and for him to have not strengthened his resolve after all that has happened to him, to me quite frankly it's pathetic.
Narusaku fans face
My face after when i saw the last page
Lol sakura in the back like
Obito wants to be talk no jutsu so bad
narusaku fan face
naruhina forever https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG6OOhxlmB0
Pretty much this. Aside from the awesomeness of seeing a pretty solid "NaruHina" moment, it is pretty lame to have this repeated over and over again. :PQuote:
byakugan is distantly related to sharingan, and therefore, the rinnegan. hinata's eyes will matter soon. for it to be tide of the war material, she would either have to achieve rinnegan, or sacrifice her eyes to naruto, who turns them into rinnegan.
or, more realistically, she gets absorbed by obito and paralyze him from the other side while naruto attacks. kakashi then brings her out.
or, even more realistically, ha: like the time when naruto lent chakra to chiyo to aid her jutsu that he had no idea how it worked. maybe we find that when naruto spams himself and hold everyone's hand on the battlefield, they power up to sage level, and via some super kyuubi powered teamwork the juubi is taken down.
Maybe the combo would be something like you said, to be his "eyes," or juiced up Kurama chakra style air palm! (Long distance bitchslap Orbito) lol Naruto is probably going to juice up others in order for that plan to work.

So what happens. The one person who has supported him since as long as she's known him, did so. This chapter was made for Hinata, it's all she can really do. This chapter is more about her than Naruto. So he's a little sluggish so Hinata gets her moment to shine. This is the real reasom why Naruto was slow. You want to take away her moment?
First, when Nagato asked Naruto about his solution, Naruto does not give a definite solution. The only answer Naruto gave Nagato was that he will not waver from his path no matter what will happen. Thus, in my understanding of good plot, I was expecting Kishi to give a situation in which Naruto's resolve will be challenged seriously because I believe he has never been challenged really closely. Now, I can claim with confidence that Obito is doing the job.
This is a question I have for you. Did Naruto waver from his resolve in 615? According to your complaints, it seems that you think Naruto did, whcih I said was a misunderstanding because chapter 615 proved that he didn't. The evidence of what I am saying is here:
In this screen, Naruto's reaction to Kurama give us what was happening in his consciousness while he looks beaten on the outside. Naruto said clearly that questioning his bonds with others is not an options. This means he is not going to give up on his friends and join Obito no matter what happens. This is why I think you and many other people on forums misunderstand the whole Naruto's reaction to Neiji's death and Obito's stupid prattling.
You might ask me why Hinata slapped him then? Well, the answer is also in the picture above. While Naruto cannot give up on his friend and join the bad guys, or let his friends down, something important happened to him. He couldn't keep his promise to protect everyone, and that is where Hinata became handy. First, he is human enough to notice that he cannot deny Obito's facts because Neiji is really dead. Second, he cannot consider Neiji's death as mere casuality of war because not only Neiji died to protect him, but also Hinata who is standing besides him just lost an important person and is crying.
First, to be honest, if Naruto were to ignore Hinata's feelings and tell Obito that he is not hurt at all in front of Hinata, he would have proven himself to be worse than Obito. Another fact is that by being down, he also proved that he was very serious when he said that he would not let Obito kill any of his friend. Then by being comforted by Hinata, he proved that he wasn't a mere preacher of empty words, but that he truly believes in what he preaches. Though people think the chapter was bad because they misunderstood it in my opinion.
Second, Hinata's role was to teach Naruto that Neiji's death wasn't a failure at all. It is because Neiji believe that Naruto can protect his friends that he chose to give is life, and Naruto should see this as a positive factor rather than adopting a selfish attitude that consist of seeing himself as some sort of god that cannot fail.
So Neiji dies a heroic, if much too-predictable like-unto-his-Father, death, saving Hinata, and and the only value of his death was its impact on Naruto? Whether negative, per Obito's raging "death is permanent" crap (Edo and Rinne Tensei notwithstanding), or positive, as in, "Look, Naruto, this was a guy who didn't care about anything, and look how much your one fight and talk-no-jutsu two years ago changed him." His death then, becomes a prop, its meaning only in its impact on Naruto.
(But even if he had to die, I wish Kishi had given him a death different from his own father's "accept your fate to escape your fate" death. I like to think he deserved more, but thinking back, Kishi never really fleshed him out all that well.)
By the way, it's telling that it was Tobi/Obito that tried to convince everyone that Sasuke's was the way of Hatred opposing Naruto's Love and Friendship. I am pretty sure Obito didn't know crap about Sasuke, but he was describing himself pretty well. Indeed, he seems to regard himself as the Messiah of Hatred, opposing Naruto, the "Destined Child", the Messiah of the Love and Friendship. Both of them need a serious dose of reality, and instead they both just seem to be getting doses of reinforcement. And both of them need to learn to like the sounds of their own voices just a tad less. (Of course, how do you fight "Hatred"? By beating it up? Probably some paradox in there somewhere.)
(If it weren't for the latest we've seen of Itachi, Sasuke, and even Orochi, I would wonder if Kishi could even write multi-dimensional, morally complex, characters. The other major characters either are good or bad/evil, sometimes switching from one to the other without going through any of the messy middle stuff.)
IF I remember correctly .... in a previous fight with 6 vs 1 , Naruto with his RM couldn't do a shit against Tobi ....
Naruto/Kurama and Bee/Hachibi even couldn't force Madara to use his Prefect Sussanoo and Madara even didn't fight them seriously , so what they would do now !?
and Jubbi going to V 3.0 ....
please bring back some logic in this manga .......
I hope TNJ don't give him actual power .....
I think Kishi look at his reader as bunch of sheep who will accept any bullshit he writes .... I can't see any sense of logic ....
Naruto Manga is going to more and more downhill .......

Still it wasn't the "holding hand" bit ( which, if we go by what Hinata said when they marched towards Naruto, is enough ), it was the fact that Hinata did, once again, what others, expecially Sakura, could not:
rekindle Naruto's confidence and be someone that Naruto leans on for support.
And besided, holding hands is, like, the second most romantic thing that happened in this manga

We can agree that 2048450 brains >>>>>>> one, expecially if that one is Naruto's
What could he have showed?
He was almost heartbroken, as Madara remarked, and let's not forget Obito TnJ'ed him all through the process of understanding Neji died
But then people would criticize him for being a flawless hero in shining armour, impervious to a close friend dying in his arms.Quote:
As for Shikamaru, he reacted just like Naruto did when he was told Kakashi died
Hearing someone died and having someone dying to protect you are pretty different things, me thinks
Naruto is going to die and Sasuke is going to Rinne' Tensei him. I still think Hinata is going to be important here. At least, she will be Obito's target, which may offer an opening for Naruto and an Ino-Shika-Cho - not Naruto. I think Sasuke is going to join the fight in t-minus 4 chapters.
