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
honestly it doesnt seem like a real battle with madara just sitting back and enjoying the show....
he has UNLIMITED CHAAKRA supposedly , what the hell is he just sitting back and grinning for, maybe he was just really bored after the fight with hashirama, and this is a form of entertainment to him...
the only cool shinobi so far in this fight is madara, when madara speak, he always say something important and epic as a badass..
but when he think about hashirama, he loose it all and goes naughty
It seems many folks read this manga since years but don't understand a damn thing. Or they would like that to be a fairy tale so their own dreams can come true...i dunno
Very good chapter! Kyuubi loo
I fully agree on the previous comments about Kishi's "gift" to describe romance (quite as good as his "gift" to draw boobs...)
I was expecting some flashbacks about Neji, but finally no. I'm a little bit disappointed, I don't like flashbacks but I thought Neji was important enough to focus on him. But finally no :'(
Naruto as the same expression when Hinata is slapping him or confessing him
On the chapter itself, I think it is good, and I don't think Sakura could win over Hinata now. For me the hope for Naru/Sakura couple has been dead since Pein's arc (and maybe even earlier...).
I don't like how Obito is behaving with Naruto, as it reminds me Pein (a fight, a question, another fight, Naruto's answer, Pein being nice and reviving everyone). I hope Kishi will be more inventive and will surprise us!
My main questions for the next chapters now are:
- When the kage will be back ? Seeing the deaths on the last chapters makes me believe it is an introduction to Tsunade's death. And this can awake Sakura and give her "her moment" to help Naruto.
- At what time Sasuke's will be back? Will he be the final boss? I mean I cannot see any link with him during this fight. I don't think he will agree on joining Madara's goal (ok to destroy Konoha but not sure he'll be interested in his plan), and for the alliance it will be too complicated to fight 3 Uchiha.
I guess now that the Alliance strategy will revolve around Ino-Shika-Cho but infused with Kyuubi chakra, allowing them to overcome the Team Obito's abilites. I realize people were clamoring more for the Byakugan but a chakra battery probably was not what they had in mind. I can see Naruto fill Hinata to the rim with , err...chakra, and she would give that to other Hyuugas who could dispense it on the field. I could see them trying the same tactic again with Hinata giuidng Choji, Shikamaru, and Ino but Madara would see it coming as well. It probably would backfire he's not THAT stupid.

That doesn't change that the way this all was written was truly truely awful. I was just reading the Tek Jansen graphic novel (Steven Colbert's early sci-fi parody) and the dialogue was remarkable similar to this chapter's, and it was actually trying to be written poorly).
Normally I'm not one for calling out stuff for cheesy writing, or even bad writing, (for comics I set that bar pretty low) but the lines this chapter threw out there were.. just horrendous.
Maybe they sound better in Japanese or maybe it's a translation issue, but reading the Mangastream version was like sailing down a river cheese. I almost did a legitimate spit take with my tea it was so bad.
"Naruto's hand is.. so big.. so manly..but more importantly..it makes me feel safe."
Say that out loud to yourself, I dare you. *Urp* here comes another wave of nausea.

Naruto is not grabbing Hinata's hand just because he need her help...
I'll probably completely agree with you tomorrow, right now I'm still full of optimism by seeing Obito not being TnJ'ed yet, Lord Madara being his usual awesome self and Hinata slapping Naruto
in the end,neji hasn't ever proved to deserve being a jonin. he should have been the strongest rookie,after naruto and sasuke,although lee might overcome him with some gates. yet,choji is clearly the strongest now,hence neji has just been ridiculized...
Oh well. Never thought Kishi would be this in your face with the NaruHina. I'll take it since there was no way at this point to write some great romance. It is what it is. NaruHina always felt right. No matter how much Kishi screwed with it.
And who would of thought Hinata would be the new Rin and not Sakura? Obito will likely target Naruto's new girlfriend.
It seems Kishi has entered fanservice mode as the manga is ending. Hopefully he will finish some of the other couples now so we can see who will be with who for the next generation.
Next chapter we should see Shikaku's last plan in action.
Powering up all the K11 seems to be where this is heading and Shikaku's plan.
It also looks like he might be the only one to die outside of Shikaku and Inoichi. Which means he isn't coming back.
