As always Black enjoy your reviews of the manga. I would like to see more introspection on the broader themes within the chapters. Kishi obviously has a message inside his chapters that he tries to convey to the reader. Would love to discuss some of these insights and what they mean as the manga develops. For example, Kishi loves to incorporate many Buddhist themes in his battles which may tip off future direct in the battles and manga development. Would love to hear thoughts from someone like you who obviously has a firm grasp on these themes. Anyway, keep up the good work!
I'm kinda shocked that Sakura has for the most part been written out of the battle. Especially when you consider she is featured in many of the color page features throughout the chapters. Maybe Kishi is setting her up for glory later in the battle... perhaps when the kages make their reappearance. Sakura fighting with Tsunade anyone?
