Naruto 298 Goodies!
Sorry for the delay in this thread! I had already posted a previous thread, but the technical problems a while back had deleted it, and I had not noticed until now. ^^
Seems like this chapter seems more dialogue-filled than the past chapters which gave us full action, eh?
Yamato seems to be making a relevation about Danzou. He seems to be pointing him out as the evil guy, or something. Hence the creepy, ugly looking mug of his, covered in shadows. >_> Well, at least, that's what I can tell from the pictures.
Then we also see Sai hopping about *lol* with Oro and Yamato. It seems our new character has betrayed the other three group members.
We also later see Naruto not being able to handle the pressure of his body after turning into Kyuubi a while back. *and the Hinata/Naruto fan in me is crying out loud T_T* I do not like that scene. D= *wails*
Oh! We also see a hanging Sai!! *grins*
Anyway, it's up to you all to predict away for the next chapter!!! Will Sasuke ever appear again? Did Sai really betray Konoha, or is he still in their side, but is trying to do things his own!?!
Danzou wasn't in shadows.. that was blood. His blood I hope.
Lol. I meant those lines in his face. XD Like a shadow was created over him. ^^
And yes...blood. Forgot to mention that. XD Hoping it's his too. I'm not that fond of him. =/
Anyway, I'm thinking the next chapter would be mroe dialogue filled...
I predict that isnt Sai hanging there. That is Orochimaru sneaking into konoha to meet with Danzou. We already know he can get into peoples skin and thus infiltrate into konoha [he did it during the second phase of the chuunin exam and also as the kazekage]. I reckon its superior to a simple henge. Ofcourse, this time he is sneaking in not as a living person, but as a dead one. Sai is, ofcourse, dead.
The theory has rough ends though, the most significant being, how in blazes is orochimaru going to pass off as a corpse while still being alive on the inside, and secondly how is he able to hang there and stay alive? A bit complicated to smoothen out, but apart from these obvious gaping holes in the theory, I am sticking with it just because I want to :P
Edit: Missed the blood on danzous pic there. Ok. This theory is useless.
Surely Akatsuki knew about this meeting between Sasori and Orochimaru. The huge amount of damage caused to the landscape will have attracted any nearby Akatsuki. Naruto will be left alone, and Akatsuki may appear! You really think he'll get back to the village alone? What will he do when he gets to the village, apart from Chuunin exam which has already been done?
Either Akatsuki or Sasuke will appear. Or both.
Sasuke has a reason. He found out about Orochimaru meeting Akatsuki. He knows his brother is with them. So he secretly watched the fight. Now he sees Naruto alone and decides to approach.
Anyone? Sasuke had better come back soon!
Silver Archer: good theory, but wouldn't it be better applied to Kabuto? He posed as an ANBU corpse before, and he's a spy.
This isn't REALLY a prediction, but the old Saku/Naru fan girliness is starting to come back to me...*OH NOES!* I feel like a traitor...but they are so cute together!!
OH! I predict that it is not a real Sai that is hanging there, though i don't really feel like concocting an explanation for that prediction...XP I also predict that it will be yet another chapter with absolutely no hint of seeing Sasuke. *sigh* I hope i am wrong...
Yeah... I also think that one is a fake.Originally Posted by Silver_Archer
I can't image Sai just dying so unceremonially . I think it's like it is said: He's accompanying Oro to Konoha now.
I would say that Oro and Danzou are going to make up some conspiracy but then I'm not sure what the thing with Danzou is (As there isn't a finished trans out there)...is he dead?
I think the hanging Sai is Oros old body and Sai now is Oros container.
As for Danzou I dun think Oro would take help or work with some one like Danzou. He wants to crush Konoha by himself. He does not care of the needs or ambitions of others. As I said before lets get over with Oro and bring Akatsuki on the line.
you have a very good point, but you have to admit that orochimaru IS an opportunist....hmmm....i can't wait to see! XD as for sai being Oro's container, YES! that would be very cool! but he didn't seem like he was gonna croak just yet though and he wants sasuke REALLY bad! *shivers in anticipation*Originally Posted by Remus
OH! and here is an explanation for my previous post stating that it isn't sai: maybe it is a 'doodle' no jutsu (whatever it's called) that is hanging there? my best guess for now XP
Taking the previous spoilers into account it seems to me that the hanging Sai could be a trap to capture Yamato, but as Oro finds out it's a clone he destroys it and the team moves on. Also Sasuke could appear anytime during the next two chapters, but during chapter 300 it's a higher possibility.
Many have forgotten that Orochimaru's body swithing jutsu takes time to execute and makes the new body weak for some time. He could not waste three years of waiting for Sasuke and time while escaping the battle, plus risk being cought in disadvantage simply to change the container prematurely. His body is still the same and all three of them are waiting to ambush the pursuers.
I belive the good Admiral Ackbar said it best:
LOL Hermie. XD
I believe it isn't Sai as well. As someone mentioned up there, it might as well be 'doodle-no-jutsu'. LMAO.
And, here's to hoping Sasuke makes a comeback. I think Sai would be the first to see Sasuke...maybe his mission was to even kill Sasuke. :laugh No...too far fetched. Eh. XD
But that can't be Sai. As Hermie and others pointed out, it's definitely a trap. But I have a feeling Sai will come back..to take his brother's picture.
I predict, and I am 100% sure on this we will see or hear of Sasuke in one form or another, I am positive Kishi is just trying to surprise us, and I'm not biting...
Does anyone else just find it really echi saying things like: Oro want's sasuke! He's waiting for sasuke's body! sorry off topic...XP just had to say that...XD anyways, i predict that when sai sees sasuke he's all: "I saw your friend! He really wanted you! I also saw his penis!*smile*"
okay so that's not gonna happen...but i just love it when sai talks about naruto's penis.
