If you remember last chapter, Naruto spat up a crow, Nagato summoned his emo animals, and Kabuto still hasn’t learned how to keep his soldier's mouths shut. The fight is intensifying between these two powerhouses. Will this crow that Naruto barfed out help or hurt Naruto?
This crow is indeed helpful for the orange ninja. We confirm this chapter that Itachi really is just an amazing ninja and an amazing person. He implanted the crow into Naruto back in the day because he knew that one day he would have to fight Sasuke, and Naruto would need his power. It was a little confusing at first, but it goes something like this.
Itachi knew Sasuke would want to get this hands all over Itachi’s eyes, so to combat this he gave Naruto a crow with a sharingan eye that would activate if Itachi’s eyes were ever used against Naruto. At that point they would cast the jitsu “koto amatsukami” which would force him to protect Konoha. However, since Itachi used his own eyes instead, he was cursed by the spell, which in turn broke his connection with Kabuto. Now Itachi is free to do whatever he pleases, and is pretty much immortal I believe. Good job Itachi with that one.
However, they have not won the ball game yet, for Nagato has finally used his eyes to kick some ass. He has somehow absorbed enough chakara to return back to his normal form. Things are not looking too good for these two.
Wow, if Nagato fought this well before, he wouldn’t be dead in the first place.
THE VERDICT 4/5
I’m really curious at seeing what happens with Itachi now that he is on the good guys team (once again). Though I have a funny feeling that he isn’t going to be around long for Nagato will probably take him out, or Itachi will have to sacrifice himself to save Naruto. Either way, nice lariat Bee!
