Who would have thought that Itachi is fighting for the good guys once again, even though he is officially dead? Seriously Itachi’s character has flipped flopped allegiances more than anyone else I can remember, he sure does get around. Right now Naruto and Bee have to take on Nagato, who is currently putting up a hell of a fight. Will Naruto talk him to death this time too? Let’s see.
It took Naruto some time to realize that all the powers Nagato is currently using are the same ones that Pain used on him back in the day. But it seems like Naruto is not taking the battle seriously, asking his opponent if he could train him. Seriously Naruto, this isn’t the time! He is going to rip out your soul and shove it into that giant face door thingy! But never mind Naruto, this chapter is all about Nagato. Seeing him pull out those multiple robotic arms out of nowhere made me wet myself with glee. He even has a Mega Man blaster as well!
Our two heroes are no match against a man who has spent a good deal of time laying in a bed half dead, way to represent the joint ninja army guys. Lucky for them Itachi jumps in with Susanoo and saves the day. But they are all thrusted into another situation as Nagato makes another gravity ball. However, it is easily dispatched when each one of them uses their most powerful long range attack on it. With that Nagato has been sealed. But before he disappears he tells Naruto that he is the final movie of the trilogy, and it better kick more ass than the second film, because that one sucked. Don’t let him down Naruto!
Naruto’s actions in the beginning of this chapter made me face palm. It’s almost as if he wanted to be captured, he seemed to put up no fight against Nagato, or make stupid mistakes a child would have seen through. Oh well, all is well that ends well.
THE VERDICT 3/5
Now that Nagato is defeated, and the good guys recruited Itachi, I’m not sure what can stop these powerhouses. The only one who could really put an end to this crew is Madara and his crew of jinchuuriki. Oh man I’m looking forward to that fight, maybe Sasuke will join the fun as well!
