Last time we saw our boy Naruto and his main squeeze Bee, they just ran into a pair of boss ninja that will give them both a run for their money, Itachi and Nagato. However, both of our heroes have been powered up since the last time they spoke, so defeating them should be a snap, but will it be? Place all bets now.
Not only has Naruto improved over the last few months since fighting Pain, but Nagato himself really has no desire to fight Naruto again. Madara and Kabuto really need to match their opponents better, for they might have a better chance at winning if their soldiers constantly tell their enemies their weak points and point out where they are at all times. Itachi is sad to learn that Sasuke plans on attacking the Leaf because of what they did to him many years ago, and also sad to learn that his big secret is known by Madara and Naruto. Well I suppose Itachi now has a reason to kill Naruto!
A battle ensues, and it really is going no where. Nagato doesn’t have his Pain boys, but he does have his annoying animal summons that gave Jiraiya a run for his money. Both groups are pretty evenly matched, but neither has used any of their special attacks yet. However, at the end we see Itachi pull out his Mangekyo Sharingan, which is never a good thing. The first result of this is one of Itachi’s crows coming cawing out of Naruto’s mouth. Does that mean Naruto looked him in the eyes, or is this some other kind of sorcery?
If Kabuto can control all these dead ninja’s bodies to do what ever he pleases, why can’t he just make them keep their mouth’s shut? This one slip up is costing him the war!
THE VERDICT 3/5
It’s nice to see these two again. Even though they might have originally been antagonists, they still played an important role in each of the main character’s lives. However, I’m still not expecting these two to put up a major fight against Bee and Naruto, but I might be wrong.Itachi and Nagato are both insanely strong and might just have powers we have never seen before.
