Concerning the 655th chapter's footnote
There is NO HIATUS. Each year has 52 issues, next week is issue #52, which means an absence of one week only.

As for being apart of Akatsuki, I don't know how much that can factor in, given that Kumo is apparently the only one who didn't have any dealings with them. But even if that is a major factor, I would think the villages would easily be willing to show some leniency to someone who help save them from impending death.
Sasuke's goal was assassination. Assuming he would not get discovered at best he would have w8ted for the best time to strike. If that was DURING the meeting he would have taken it. That was not a mission to retrieve information, his mission was to assassinate Danzo.
Also the fact that they used Aka is irrelevant. All that is relevant is the current state of said organization and that said organization attacked all the villages. They were a known terrorist group at that point.
But I do agree on something. He should get a pardon based on multiple factors. Including the fact that Raikage, Bee and a lot others are not going to press charges (and I assure you they won't).
The samurai only attacked him once Sasuke attacked one of their own (said man had status unknown to the rest, he could have been dead) and then said this:
Can you blame them? Also that does not mean they would have killed him assuming they would have the opportunity to tie him up and drag him for interrogation. Of course they fought with the intent to kill but considering what they were facing... Can you blame them?
Hell Sasuke even had a chance to pull back... He did not take it... Why did he not retreated once he was found out? He just did not care who would die... His only goal was kill Danzo, anything else, including his own survival was secondary.
They complained about Zetsu because Zetsu was easy to take in, he was defeated (more or less).

I think that the scene in the next chapter will move away from Obito, I think that Kakashi and Minato will go to help Naruto and the others ninjas, I believe that their talk with Obito is finished.
I believe that Obito will stay on the ground for some chapters, then He will decides to revive Madara, but not to help him, on the contrary He will do it because for how He is now Madara is invincible , He has in immortal body and has an unlimited chakra.
At the opposite if He will be resurrected He will lose these things, even if on the contrary He will be able to became the jinchurichi of the Juubi.
In any case, the next chapter will focus on Naruto and Madara .
Naruto will try to destroy the tree, but I think Madara will be able to stop the shot, demonstrating that He has taken enough cells from Hashirama for be able to enter in Hermit Mode.
In the truth Naruto even be able to destroy the tree, or the tree itself, since He has no longer having the chakra of the biju could wither.
In any case, however, I think that Madara could ricreate the tree once again, If He will be able to capture a little bit of the chakra of all the biju.
The reason Sasuke wanted to kill Obito is pretty clear, he made his intentions to kill everyone connected to the massacre a long time ago. It's not even a new thing. He already attempted to kill Obito twice before. This discussion was over the idea that their actions were comparable, and there's a clear difference between killing a handful of people who attacked first and killing thousands for one's own goal.
samurai outright made it clear that they intended to kill him. Between that and the fact that they attacked with drawn weapons first, they were clearly the instigators in that situation.
First he invaded to assassinate Danzo, not spy.Quote:
Second, if a guy invades my home and I attack him first, the one who initiated that fight is HIM. Its irrelevant why Sasuke was there, he initiated said fight by being there.
At all times his mission is assassination. Even assuming he would limit himself to information gathering at one point is irrelevant to what his mission is. For those samurai to allow him to get information on 1 of those Hokages would mean they would be assisting Sasuke with his mission to kill 1 of the delegates.Quote:
Now, those dudes had no fucking clue why he was really there. He could have pulled back the moment he was found out and find another way... Did he do that? Nop he attacked them all just so he can kill the Hokage.
Not really. The others used Aka when it was a mercenary force and not public enemy number one, a terrorist organization that attacked all the villages... Sasuke acted as part of this organization as it was at that point in time. Its damn relevant in this regard. He should be pardoned based on other factors but that is another discussion.Quote:
I can name a few other characters who did not even get the chance to attack him :PQuote:
Now them using lethal force to stop him is true, now anybody BUT Raikage would take him alive assuming he would give up and surrendered. Only Raikage was to blind to see the advantage one would have from taking him prisoner. Thing is he become to dangerous and they went for the kill. Zetsu alone and was more then warranted lethal force after he drained them all.
lol? Are you serious? In this manga people can create lethal weapons from a finger. A simple riton finger to the skull is more then enough to kill a man. Also they can't know all the abilities Sasuke has... He could very well have that ability. Then they were not even present when he attacked that guy. He could have had a weapon on hand, he could have strangled that guy to death.Quote:
If a known terrorist would invate a UN assembly (presidents) and some special forces, cops would notice him, you think they would not have their guns aimed at him from the start? I could very well imply that they will be shooting first and asking questions later... Sasuke, like the terrorist invading said assembly would be the instigator. Its baffling to me how you can't understand this simple fact.
First off, the premise I made above with said terrorist. It was fully in their right to be with those weapons raised. He was responsible for any harm that would come to ANYBODY THERE the moment he decided to enter said place.Quote:
Then of course I did not notice Sasuke even making an attempt to run... The first Samurai was made to look like a moron and believed Sasuke escaped by a simple, cheap trick rofl...
He already eluded them:Quote:
Notice what the samurai is stating...
He warned them? lol... Yeah telling him he will kill them all if they would get in his way... He would obviously would have preferred NOT to fight anybody but Danzo as that would mean injuries and chakra loss but going from that to "he cares" is just absurd...
You already said above why attack after and not before. It was to his advantage... Not because he "cared". He "cared" for his own safety and the success of his assassination and NOT about who he killed. Hours later he impaled his own team member and before that he abandoned 2 team mates like rabid dogs...
It depends on the danger potential. To use my terrorist example before, assuming he would be caring explosives he would get a shoot on sight so he does not have time to set it off.Quote:
For the samurai to attempt to take him alive when they knew what he is and how powerful he is would be stupid. I am sure they would have not killed him assuming he would surrendered, they would most certainly contacted Mifune to ask him what to do.
Once Gaara was there he had a clear way out (a way to surrender), he did not take it now did he? In the end he IS responsabile for who he injured, who he killed and the material damages he did. He invaded a restricted area were the leading nations rules were assembling. He did that with the intent of assassination one of them, before or after is also not relevant to what his goal was, his invasion, even assuming would be limited to information retrieval would aid him in his assassination.

Are you guys reading the same story? They went in there to identify Danzo and kill him on his way back to Konoha, Sasuke was not trying to start shit at the samurai place but zetsu was like OMG HEY SASUKES Here so they started looking for him THEN Karin was like OMG THEY FOUND US ZOMG, and sasuke was like "Aww shit im pissed SON!" etc.
I guess my point is that Sasuke, being the intruder, should have expected resistance but that resistance was by his own doing since he initiated the whole thing. Tobi/Zetsu be damned of course. Also, from the perspective of the Raikage, he thought his brother had been abducted and killed by the same guy that crashed the summit. To the Raikage, he was a criminal that needed to be brought to "justice"... it didn't really matter that someone else was Sasuke's target.
Anyway Sasuke's still a convenient jerk for the sake of the manga... rushing in and trying to officially end Obito's life (though yeah, makes sense). But his personality is different than at the summit, I agree. ANd Obito's is different now as well too of course. But the manipulation, I wish there was more on. Tobi set things up so much, taht he even took out Danzou's guards on his own and left Danzou to Sasuke.
A few funny things since I looked back at the older chapters. Fuu mentioned there was even a 'land of wood' at some point in time. Maybe it was nothing, but back then I remember thinking that could have been something. Also on a more funny side... Naruto seems to forget about Madara quite a bit. He asked Kakashi "Who's Madara"? And evne just now, he kidn of forgot he was running around destroying stuff. lol Kind of like Gai and Kisame.

Resistances is one thing. The other Kages provided resistances too, but Sasuke cared more about blocking and running away then attacking. So I don't really see that resistances = fight to the death. Ee's not really the same case; Ee made it clear even before the summit that he was after Sasuke's head for what he did to Kirabi. And Ee had a legitimate claim towards him.
It's a real shame we lost the manipulative Tobi. It's like night and day now. Whereas before he was good at playing people and winning even when he lost, now he's so straightfoward and failing in his actions.
