Naruto #598 - Into Pieces
In a Nutshell
- Some cool looking frames involving Naruto.
- This should be a pretty great fight once animated.
- We still don't know who Tobi is.
- Tobi kinda sucks once anyone discovers how his powers work.
Rants and Raves
Super boo hiss at absolutely no progress being made in revealing Tobi's identity. I mentioned earlier that this should all be pretty awesome once animated but I feel like it's dragging on for too long in manga form. Yeah, Naruto did some Neo "No" type of stuff that was pretty cool but for the past few weeks it's been nothing but Tobi and Naruto clash, Kakashi does Kamui to help Naruto land a hit, and it ends in a who is Tobi? moment. When are they going to answer that question? In the anime this whole rumble might last one or two episodes, which is perfect. When you stretch it to a month of manga releases though, it gets tiring. Also, it made for a dramatic end but LOL at a supercharged rasengan from Kyuubi-trenchcoat Naruto apparently only packing enough punch to break a wooden mask.
This chapter was a B-. There was some cool fighting in the chapter but after so many weeks of anticipation I'm no longer interested in cool moves. Who is Tobi? Tell me that and I'll be cool with however many cool moves they want to throw in afterwards.
William Taylor is definitely a person and, rest assured, he does stuff in places as well. Unlock the mystery on Twitter@mrsickvisionz.
