Finally, it seems like for the first time in this manga everything is going Naruto’s way. His clan, hell the whole ninja world has just given him permission to basically run wild and to do as he pleases. This is a dream come true for Naruto, and now only Madara will be able to stop him, and stop him he will with his new paths to pain, the previous Jinchuuriki! Can Naruto survive this time?
This chapter is basically the good guys catching up with all the current events, and telling Naruto about what the current situation is right now. Or in short, reminding the audience about the power of this new enemy. This might be new to Naruto, but Madara already knows about this plan, because of course he fought Naruto’s Mother before, so he knows about her powers. Everything is falling into Madara’s hands nicely.
However, Naruto will not be talking his way to peace this time, Madara is too far down the path to evil to be swayed by Naruto, which makes me a very happy boy. We are then blessed with Naruto’s first battle scene after he received his new super saiyan indian chief powers, and boy is he powerful. We witness Naruto doing what he does best: making up new powers on the spot to combat new situations. He quickly takes them all out, which in turn transforms them back into trees, what a green way to destroy your enemies! After this small battle is finished, he uses his mass cloning jitsu to send a Naruto to every battlefield, to destroy all his enemies at once!
I felt like there was a lot of repeating of information during this chapter, but since this manga and this magazine is targeted for children, I suppose it is understandable.
THE VERDICT 3/5
Good chapter this time, but mostly all in the second half. I’m really liking Naruto (the character) as of late, he surly has grown since the first time we saw him. Now that Narutos are going to be everywhere, I’m sure this battle will progress even faster than normal, but according to Madara this is all according to plan. I guess this isn’t going to be easy after all.
