Exciting ninja climax battle! Madara has just made the battle 5:1 in his favor on a whim, is there no end to this guys strength? While Kabuto faces off against Itachi and Sasuke, the Kage take on the Sauron of Naruto ninjas. In order for the Kage to defeat Madara now, Itachi and Sasuke must win their battle to stop the Edo Tensei. Let’s see who claims victory in this decisive Ninja World War battle!
This chapter is all about the Itachi and Sasuke vs. Kabuto battle. To be frank with you all, I didn’t really think this was going to be an interesting battle since I never really saw Kabuto to be much of a threat. He always seemed to be second fiddle to Orochimaru, and Orochimaru himself didn’t seem to be interested in Kabuto’s body anyway, so I figured he couldn’t be too powerful. I was wrong.
It looks like Orochimaru’s death really did help Kabuto in more than one way. Not only did he absorb some of his power, but he actually trained on his own as well. He studied each one of Sasuke’s allies and empowered himself with their abilities, making himself a liquid, healing, nature-loving machine. But it didn’t end there. Much like Naruto, he too was trained by a sage, giving him the power of sage mode as well. I never expected another character to have sage mode, especially snake sage mode. Now thanks to this new development, the Itachi and Sasuke have their work cut out for them.
There wasn’t really anything too glaringly bad about this chapter, other than I want to see what Kabuto can do right this instant!
THE VERDICT 4/5
I was hoping that Kabuto wouldn’t be a walk in the park for these two, so this chapter knocked my expectations out of the park. Next chapter will surly be epic as these three monsters give it their all. I can’t wait!
