Kishi really should have used the panels with Dan for Taka.
It would satisfy us all if Taka also get to Kabutos hideout, cheering for Sasuke that they found something for him that could change the tide of the war, only to get instantly sealed with the Sword of Totsuka or tortured for decades to death with Tsukuyomi by Itachi.
I am so disappointed in this chapter and i dont even know why.
Maybe im just sick of Kabuto and Edo-tensai, maybe i just think that Madara being a First Hokage fanboy is wrong in many many ways, maybe its me being really annoyed at too much Itachi. I guess in the end its all of it together.
I dont even feel like going into detail or thinking much about this chapter, im just hoping we can go back to Naruto soon, because seeing him is still better then the other shit that is going on right now. I wish this war would just end.
Kabuto is obviously tickled that Sauske is so stupid. With Sauske there, Kabuto has no reason to support Tobi’s war any longer. I wonder if Tobi will sense this and retreat from Naruto in order to try and save Sauske?
As far as the inevitable fight goes… Kabuto might just go ahead and end Edo Tensei. This would cause Itachi to vanish, and his genjutsu is really the only threat to Kabuto. It would also end ET Madara - thus pulling the Kage’s bacon out of the fire. That clears the deck for the fight to be between Kabuto and Sauske by himself. And then Kabuto might just go ahead and re-establish the technique to bring ET Madara back to fight Sauske. I still think that’s where this is ultimately going to end up. Sauske vs. ET Madara. That will challenge Sauske and make it so he is also facing a true growth experience like Naruto is having versus Tobi.
The question is whether or not Kabuto will be pressured himself. I think that at some point in time he is going to be the host that resurrects Orochimaru – and after a rumble with Sauske seems about the right time to do it. Sauske is going to have to be repeatedly pushed and exhausted just like naruto, and having to deal with ET Madara – then Kabuto – and THEN Orochimaru would be a good way to push him to his limits.
Tsunade will be fine. Being impaled will be no big deal to the genesis rebirth. All her cells will just regrow. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if ET Madara’s Susano ‘squished’ her into putty like Danzou, but then she regenerated back completely to the astonishment of all and continued the fight. Yeah, it’ll cost her later but it’d be cool.
There was a lot of “off panel” crap this chapter. How the heck Tsunade was able to reach Madara and punch a hole in him was off-paneled. And Itachi pulled a freaking JUGO by punching a wall and ‘finding’ Kabuto. What is up with Kishi having people punch walls and finding plot-no-jutsus lately? I mean – there was Itachi sending crows at Sauske and BOOM next panel he has punched through a wall in the space-time continuum and found Kabuto. Guh-WHUH?
That will never happen. It will just be whatever bullcrap Kishi wants it to do in a given moment. EDO TENSEI!Quote:
Well, I guess one could be bored to sadness. Especially considering the state he's in right now. I guess the more sad he looks, the more pathetic he deems the kage. He's not even bothering to smirk obnoxiously at their failures so... yeah. I guess he is sad.Originally Posted by ptolemy
I always wondered, why would Tobi aka Nobody (or was it No One?) need to know the seals to deactivate Edo Tensei? Couldn't he just genjutsu him and make him do whatever was needed to deactivate it? Also, Why's Itachi think it's much worse? He can just control him if he's strong enough. Although, he could've used Shisui's Komoamatsukami. However, Itachi did seal Orochimaru. If he manages to capture kabuto and restrain him, maybe, since Kabuto is using his power, Orochimaru can undo the jutsu.

Oh wow. I didn't initially notice Sasuke in the background on the last panel. This will be really interesting. I think Itachi is going to need Sasuke's help to restrain/kill Kabuto. I feel like there will be some kind of backfire, though.

Of course, Kabuto could also summon Madara right back to his location, saving the Five Kages and setting up a battle between three of the most powerful Uchiha in history.
Also, Madara isn't a Hashirama "fanboy". Madara cares only about power, and Hashirama was the most powerful person he ever fought. Now that Hashirama is gone, nobody else can compare to him, and so Madara is disappointed. He misses the challenge.
It's like, if Superman were actually out of the picture, Lex Luthor would miss the challenge.
Despite all Madara's "you are not fit to lick my boots" banter to the Kage's the reality is he would be dead multiple times if he wasn't completely immortal. They have landed plenty of hits. So Susanoo is not exactly shielding him all that well.
His complaints that the Kage's are too weak is actually kinda funny when you think about this too. It's like some video-game nerd complaining a game is too easy as he plays it with a whole bunch of cheats enabled.
Dunno how him not being Jiraiya makes him inferior...unlike Jiraiya, he didn't have to be 50+ years old to realize his responsibility to the village, he actually WANTED to be Hokage, and apparently he was fairly powerful (his databook stats make him out to be decent). And his point was valid. Rather than wasting multiple people there with him, they could leave those necessary for the barrier and go search for Kabuto. Apparently, even the 5 Kages together can't really beat Madara, and he still hasn't gotten serious...so they do need to get Kabuto to release the ET, if possible.Quote:
Yea, I keep hoping for him to do something epic, but yea...idk what he really wants to do.Quote:
Eh, it beats hyperventilating and passing out, lolQuote:

Shisui's Koto Amatsukami could only be activated once every decade, so no, Itachi couldn't have used it again.
Also, keep in mind that Kabuto's skills in genjutsu are actually almost maxed out according to the databooks, and that was before he powered himself up with Orochimaru's remains. It might not be so simple to trap him in genjutsu. In fact, I'd bet that his snake tail would simply bite him and snap him out of it, or something.
Great chap. I wonder about many things:
1. About EdoT: it is a jutsu, but as Itachi has said, every jutsu has a weakness. In fact, Itachi knows a jutsu stronger than EdoT. That justu, IMO, is KOTOAMATSUKAMI . See that Itachi says that jutsu bring back him to be normal, which I interpret has "I'm not under EdoT control anymore"). But Itachi cant use that jutsu anymore, so that must not be EdoT's weakness. So what is EdoT's weakness? Or is Itache wrong about every jutsu having a weakness?
2. Here I interpret that, as long as Itachi knows Sasuke is not going to obey him when he says him to saty there, he send his crows to stop Sasuke (last box). And, in the last page, I interpret that, Kabuto was not expecting Sasuke to come, and that when he notice his presence, he laughs and says "so my luck has finally turned". So is it that Sasuke is going to defend Kabuto against Itachi (which is hard to beleive)? Or is it that Kabuto has some kind of strategy that gets stronger with Sasuke's presence?
3. Did we already saw that new Tsunade's jutsu?
4. And a crazy wonder: Who has a stronger knock Tsunade or Shirohige (one piece)?
And a final prayer: Dear Tsunade, dont you die!!! Your magnificent personality has encourage me to keep reading this long story. Without you it would be the same. I do want your wonders bouncing there in the battle.
