Welcome to this week’s Naruto chapter. Remember what happened last chapter? Oh yes, our two favorite teachers, Kakashi and Guy have appeared on the battlefield to help Naruto and Bee sort out their Jinchuriki problem. Will these two be enough to turn the tide of battle?
Yeah, I don’t think so. Guy and Kakashi are a great addition to the battlefield, but they haven’t really achieved anything yet, besides keeping them occupied. Kakashi did however figure out that Tobi cannot use Pain’s abilities because of the drain on his chakra that controlling all these Jinchuriki with his eyes entails.
But the real surprise this chapter was the inclusion of Sasuke into this war. At first I was super confused when I saw his picture there, worried that I somehow skipped a chapter. But no I did not, Sasuke will be joining this war whether we like it or not!
Naruto is quickly running out of juice and is near empty by the end of this chapter. However, the Nine Tails stopped absorbing Naruto’s chakra at some point, so he’s actually helping Naruto, but it isn’t enough. We see that by the time this chapter is through, the Nine Tails too is running low, but has big plans in store for Naruto. He will do something to help protect his master, but what? My guess is that he will fully trasform into his Nine Tails form, which no one can stop at this point.
I wish Sasuke would enter the battle with more pizzaz, like during the middle of Naruto’s and Tobi’s fight for example. Instead we get, Sasuke has joined the game, now we have to wait ten chapters for him to find his way to the battle field.
THE VERDICT 3/5
Pretty ok chapter this time around, but I’m sure the next one will be all sorts of bad ass. Naruto is going to transform into something, or at least get a hella strong, and people are going to feel the pain.
