I wonder if we'll get to see Shisui and Jiraiya again before the end of the manga.
So unless Sasuke gets brainwashed again is the conflict between him and Naruto going to officially amount to nothing.... again?
Minato couldn't meet anyone's expectations? In dying young, sure. Otherwise methinks the only person whose expectations he didn't meet was his own.
Cuz like, it's like saying Minato is a failure. HE's not.
I Think Naruto X Sasuke will happen, but not in oposite sites. They will clash like rivals. This will be a nice end (like Yousuke X Yomi, not oposite sites, but rivals).

It was said that Sasuke wouldn't learn anything or change when he met Itachi before fighting Kabuto. But alas, it started him down the road to redemption.
Said posters claimed he was so dumb/emo that speaking to the Kage would have no effect on his hatred outside of enhancing it. Instead, his need to annihilate Konoha has seemingly subsided completely.
ninjabot 2. Haters 0.
The only question is now that a fight between Sasuke and Naruto isn't obligated, there's no need for a power-up on Sasuke's end if they're teaming up. Which is perfectly fine. Best thing that can happen now is for Naruto and Obito to warp to another battlefield while Sasuke fights Madara, pushing his Susanoo to it's final form and giving us a Susanoo vs. Susanoo battle (we've already had Bijuu vs. Bijuu).
Can't wait to see the lots join the battle, would be a battleground of HUMONGOUS egos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most of all can't wait to see Yellow and Orange sparkles on the battlefield(better if it happens during anime). Moreover, main things is that we need to see the arsenals that the 3rd and 4th fully hold since they will be fighting a hashirama-induced rinnegan over-powered Madara, we can then judge if Hiruzen indeed lives up to his hype and also to see why the 4th was regarded as the greatest hokage of all(not too sure about the context of his greatness though).

Also, although I hope you are right, can we even be sure that this will be the final farewell? Or is it possible that further flashbacks could be shown at a later date (and I mean repeat panels not new story progression).
What I hate is that hashiramas story is what is turning him around besides naruto. I thought that job was left from itachi to naruto. Also this chapter has WAY too many flashback panels. A big two page spread would have been enough but this seems a little much. But my opinions aren't final, ill wait till the chapter comes out!
