It's a frantic race to stop Madara from reviving himself using Obito. Will the Shinobi Alliance make it in time?

The Good

Naruto's giving plot details. The world's gone mad.

I have to be completely honest with you. If it wasn't a tradition that finales are normally announced ahead of time -- ala BLEACH. I would have sworn that this is a story about the end of NARUTO. Go down the list of what the past two arcs have brought resolution to, and how many answers have been given. What more could there be to tell after this is ultimately resolved? Not only have the heroes overcome the challenge of a zombie army of the greatest shinobi in history, but now they're going to be faced with a threat that challenged the Sage of Six Paths. This should come across as incredibly exciting. If only it hadn't been Obito that gained all this power.

The Bad

You said it, Madara.
You said it, Madara.

I still don't care for Kishimoto's attempt to make Obito relatable. That ship long since sailed. If he wanted me to feel bad for him, then he should have crafted better motivation for his repeated betrayals. It all just reeks of a rip-off from EVANGELION. Only difference is that the EVA series never tried to make Gendosympathetic. I hated Gendo, but Obito just annoys me.

This may be a matter of personal preference, but I'm left frustrated we still don't know the fate of Samuinow that the Ten-Tails has been absorbed. Oh yeah, and the others that got trapped in that urn along with her.

Verdict 4/5

This chapter would have been far more entertaining if it hadn't taken so long to get to this point. That sounds like a weird critique, but so much of this arc has been drawn out. It also undermines everything the protagonists have doing to prevent this very outcome. Don't get me wrong. I want to be excited about this. I just start thinking of all those weeks of action and drama that were ultimately for naught. But, whatever. Who wants to read a story where everything goes the way the hero want all the time? This was an improvement on last week, and who doesn't enjoy seeing Obito get knocked around? Nobody. That's who.

Oh no, Tobi have a giant head now. That like 10x more dangerous then the Ten Tails. I preparing myself for Tobi endless speeches

Madara is the most chill person ever, it seem like he don't care about the moon plan

Gendo? The first individual to come to my mind is Shinji.

PS:Anyway, plants. They are green, they sprout seeds, and there is this thing called instrumentality. Now look at the moon of blood, and get this beautiful red eyes of mind control! And another arc begins.

@Destinyheroknight: Actually being the ten-tails jinchuriki drops a few iq points and looks like the juubi's in cointrol

I feel the exact same way, every shinobi who has ever died including all the Hokages are returning for one last hurray, the world is literally in danger from the strongest beast to ever have lived, Naruto has COMPLETE control of the Nine Tails, Sasuke is back on the right path (for now) along with every single loose end now being tied, it seems that the series is about to end, seriously, what can top this arc? The only thing I can think of is another timeskip with Naruto as the Hokage.
