Our best friend Sasuke just made his appearance, like for real this time. It doesn’t take a sage toad to realize that the confrontation between Naruto and Sasuke is one the horizon. But will they fight this chapter? Let’s find out!
Of course they are not fighting this chapter, it was silly to get my hopes up. But they will be fighting eventually, that much is clear after reading this chapter. The action steps away from Naruto as Sasuke and his friends return to the limelight. I haven’t really missed these guys, and their appearance once again did not convince me to fall in love with them either. The real bit of entertainment they gave us was the information they found in Orochimaru’s hideout. What ever it is, it seems like it could have been a game changer. Of course they are not going to hand over this information to the police like good citizens, but over to Sasuke, who I’m sure is probably twenty times worse than handing it over to Tobi.
We then get to see Sasuke once again. Here he is accosted by a few angry Zetsus who demand he go back to sleep, or go home, or something. I don’t know what they are thinking, since Sasuke has never been one to follow orders, and there is no way they would be able to take him in the first place. No matter, Sasuke wipes the floor with them using Susanoo. Good news for Sasuke is that it doesn’t seem to hurt him after using that technique. He learns about the war, and about Naruto’s actions in it. A move we have all been waiting for, he decides to head to where Naruto is located, so that Sasuke can kill him! However, not everything will go Sasuke’s way, for his brother might be alerted to his presence due to them sharing the same eyes. I’m smelling a Sasuke vs. Itachi part 2!
Even though it has been awhile since we’ve seen the Taka in action, I’m still don’t really miss them. I would like to see them grow and work as a team and become something more than Sasuke’s second fiddle.
THE VERDICT 3/5
The chances of seeing Tobi, Naruto, and Sasuke partake in once glorious and epic battle royal is very high. Yet Itachi might stop Sasuke before he enters the battle, or Kabuto might attack him as well for killing his master. So to be honest I don’t think Naruto and Sasuke will fight just yet, there are plenty of obstacles in both their ways at the moment.
