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
I guess now we know. We know for a fact that what pairing fans always said was true... Kishimoto really does suck at writing romance.
"Oh, what big hands you have Naruto"
"I feel so safe Naruto"
Pardon me, while I vomit once more into the trash can near my computer *hurksloosh*.
Gah, good god people what a dreadful chapter. It's not too often you see overwritten and badly written at the same time. Sweet jesus, how could something as reliablely great as finding strength through a loved one go so damn wrong.

So the difference between Obito and Naruto is that Naruto got a girlfriend.
Well from what I have seen many people are disappointed by this chapter expecting either something more dramatic happening, not liking that Naruto had a breakdown like this and also thinking a bit of a cliche the way Hinata stepped up to be his mental handicap.
While I totally see your point of view I also disagree with that in a big degree.
Naruto hasn't stopped going forward since he joined the battlefield and it is only logical that all this would really be too much for ANY 15-16 years old kid to handle, while being in an emotional stable place. Don't forget that Naruto had always stepped up to take a hit and save others and this time he couldn't do anything to save thousands of them, while Obito is really rubbing this to his face. I also saw that some people are comparing this to the Konoha incident. Don't forget that Naruto didn't show up until after the mayhem had been done and he couldn't do anything to save those people in the first place (not to mention that after all they were saved by Nagato).
So to sum this part up I believe that this was really a necessary part for Naruto to go on into finally saving the whole ninja world. Also imo internal changes can sometimes be more of a cliffhanger than something really dramatic happening or a sudden huge power-up. I will agree that Kishimoto could have presented to us that change of determination in Naruto in a better way, but to be honest that one doesn't disappoint me either
To wrap it up as far as Hinata comes, maybe it had to take something really bad (like Neji dying and Naruto hearing his final words) to make him deeply realize what Hinata is and have always been for him. The way we see him really squeezing her hand near the end, I believe it is a biggest reaction out of Naruto than a thousand words could say. And just saying I was never a huge NarutoXHinata fan. :P

boring chapter again but its about time he acknowledged hinata. good for you hinata it only took 600 chapters to get out of the friend zone lol and question: why didnt neji or hinata just do the twirl move to save naruto? no one had to die, i thoguht neji was gonna come back without his seal but to kill him off in the cheesiest way possible is wack cause ive been a huge neji fan since part 1 and he couldve easily stopped them or atleast redirected them like he did againt the sound four guy so he idnt have to die like that. If kishi wanted a dramatic death he shouldnt have thrown neji under the bus like that for shock value he shouldve gotten someone who's potentials been maxed.
*sighs* another dope character who's potential we'll never truly see
i wonder how jyuubi will get defeated. bee had thrown 2 bijuudamas, one dispelling jyuubi's another hitting directly, and they exploded inside of jyuubi, and that thing get up without any serious injury.
actually , I read both MangaPanda and MangaStream version but both time I skipped Hinata TNJ .....
next chapter we will see that hopeless cycle for 2nd time .............. Naruto would have upper hand ... Madara smile .... Jubbi V3.0 and then bomb ... another disapear .... another TNJ ....
this is more than 1 year that we have this hopeless cycle ...
it was an okay chapter for naruto's ideals and ninja way of him but for the plot hasn't progress at all....
kishi could had used 2 pages for this ninja way instead of a whole freaking chapter or he could have put it in a filler.
star wars lol Vader returns in obito; the dark side is strong in obito. Say it naruto come to me im your real father!
well,at least the story went on a little bit,that is both naruto and bee can now use biju mode. I think that next chapter will end with the jubi transforming again...
I enjoy'd it. But I can't really think of why. It was just fun to read.
Its gonna be interesting to see what this does to hinata in the next issue.
Anyone else think it was hilarious that the juubi had to wrap his arms around his own body just to stabilize himself to attack?
Just wanted to point that out.

good chapter, im glad to see bee and hachi trying to attack the the juubi, this added at least a little bit of action to the chapter, i am surprised to see naruto starting to lose his way , or lose focus, especially after he helped kakashi keep his focus in an earlier chapter (right around when obitos identity was revealed)
but to answer the poll question yes the end of naru-saku happened long ago, but this definitely puts an end to any doubt
i really nope we get to see naruto do something badass in the bijuu mode, i am still wondering what the hell is taking oro and sasuke so long, it is about time for them to show up, i know this battle cant end without them
How is a 16 year old girl holding hands with the one she loves "dreadful" or "badly written", expecially after her little monologue when they all ran towards Naruto?
Sure, Kishi could've summed up Hinata's TNJ in 1 or 2 pages, but damn then let's complain about every little thing
"The sky is black, fuck you Kishi!"
I often get the impression a lot of guys bash Naruto because it seems like you are the cool kid
Of all the ones complaining, only chilibun and hakuteiken made strong points imo
