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.
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.
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.
