Kakashi did'nt use his MS against Kakuzu for 2 reasons..
1: It takes two much Chakra out of him to use without exhausting all other options.
2: Plot Magic: At that range he'd have killed him in one hit (he was MUCH closer to Kakuzu that Deidara's Kamakazi Clone), and we had to wait for Naruto.
this off topic conversation has gone on for far too long. please return to predicting the next chapter or i'll have to lock this thread for a while
Some Itachi-Kisame talk maybe spawn back to base...Naruto starts training or starts forming a team...
dude its so not cool to make predictions after u have seen the spoiler thread (not that there any real spoilers but still)
This has been the longest 2 weeks of my life....
I want the next manga to come out already!!!!
lets also try to hold back on the agonizing until the chapter is actually deemed late ~ sahugani
Uh, I'm pretty sure Naruto's team is going to consist of Chouji, Shikamaru and Sakura.
I mean, I know Shikamaru was just in an arc, but there were hints these characters were going with Naruto.
First when Naruto visited Shikamaru at work, Chouji said he'd be going along, then in the hospital, when Ino first saw Sai, Shikamaru walked over to Naruto and made a point of saying he would help Naruto get Sasuke back, since the Chuunin exam preparations were over. And when Naruto went all Kyuubi, Sakura said she would bring Sasuke back. Not to mention what she said to Naruto as she left his hospital room before the time-skip.
But yeah, I'm pretty sure that's who he's taking.
I just can't wait to see Sasuke and Naruto fighting. Since I'm pretty sure Yamato isn't going, Naruto'll most likely go Kyuubi again. If that happens, either Naruto or Sasuke will probably end up either badly injured or dead.
I wonder what Ino plans on doing from now on... i mean, she's by far, the weakest and useless ninja among the ones we know from her generation. She has started to feel bad about it, and she will desperately start a training to improve somehow her skills. She thinks she can only get near sasuke if she gets stronger, and she will certainly train like a Sayan if that's what it takes.
We've seen sakura and ino let the hair grow for sasuke, they were even on diet to be thin for him... now it's training. Its gonna be hardcore!
I dont see chouji being involved in this arc. It would be like fitting square pegs in circular holes.
More of a wish than a prediction: I think that in the next chapters we will get to see a confrontation between Itachi and Sasuke. The fight will seem even between the two sides until Naruto arrives. Any extra training that Naruto will have done will be useless because the moment he will start using Kyuubi chakra, Itachi will step into Naruto's mind and, just as Sasuke did before, will annihilate any chance for Naruto to use the extra power. Naruto will stay prisoner in his own mind. Kisame will come in, grab Naruto who seems to be in a near catatonic state, and disappear. Itachi will wrap up the fight with Sasuke by putting him down and telling him again that he is not strong enough yet to fight him and will leave as well.
The backup team will arrive at that moment. They will then join what's left of Naruto's team and team Snake to look for Naruto and stop Akatsuki. We will then have a few chapters where Naruto will not do much except trying to get out of his own mind, the teams looking for him and Akatsuki trying to separate him from the Kyuubi.
Not very likely but we'd get to see Sasuke devastated by the huge gap remaining still to have a chance to get his vengeance. He might change his mind about hanging around Konoha...
Kishimoto's definately going somewhere epic with this arc. At the beginning it looked like a hectic introduction of new characters and fan service, but this arc is definately on the roll now. I think there'll be a standoff between some of Team snake vs. Team 7, along with whoever else decided to come, or a fight between Team Snake or Team 7 vs. Some Akatsuki.
The race to Itachi begins. :P
Perhaps there'll be some epic plot twist in store for us, Sasuke doesn't kill Itachi but in fact Naruto does. Or Sasuke/Naruto team up to fight an Akatsuki or two. That's all well and good, but Deidara is definately going to die soon. He's relatively weak in comparison to the other Akatsuki, not to say he isn't powerful enough to kill someone in Team 7 or Team Hebi, but I think that's unlikely. If the spoilers aren't true, perhaps Deidara won't be mobilized at all? New Akatsuki developments are definately going to be interesting, perhaps Kishimoto will unveil the leader, too.
As a side note, who are Naruto and co. going to do battle with once Akatsuki are done with? I can't see Kabuto doing anything in the near future...
Yeah, I've been waiting to see what Kabuto planned on doing ever since Sasuke killed Orochimaru.
It'll take a while, but I'm sure we'll see him again. If not, that's like leaving a loose end.
I don't know. Maybe Kishimoto is ending the manga soon?
I've thought about Naruto killing Itachi. That would be rather interesting, seeing as how Sasuke seems to exist only to kill him.
I've also thought about Naruto's wound, and the fact you know he'll be using that new jutsu again. He'll probably lose his chakara, and keep the Kyuubi's. I don't know, it's possible.
How things are going, I could see Naruto fighting Sasuke, Sakura fighting Karin, Shikamaru fighting Suigetsu (Face it, he always fights someone with that personality and a foul-mouth) and whoever else fighting Juugo.
There was a hint Chouji would accompany Naruto, like I said, but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen.
Ahh, we'll see soon, I suppose.
Well, I predict Naruto going to be doing some more training some how.. Anyhow, If he do get the chance to go look for Itachi. It going to be a team with Sakura,Naruto, Neji & Kakashi sensi or Yamoto..
Saskura - Karin
Naruto - Sasuke
Neji - Juugo
Suigetsu - Kakashi or Yamoto.
I only can see that Match up if team 7 should meet up with Hebi.
Plus i also feel that naruto going to be the one that Kill Itachi..
