AV MOD MATERIAL: Weekly NARUTO #600 Review

Those Uchiha boys are at it again.

Naruto #600 - How come until now...?

In a Nutshell

So basically "bros over hoes" would have saved the ninja world.
So basically "bros over hoes" would have saved the ninja world.

Kakashi has a flashback about Obito's death but is interrupted by a pep talk from Naruto. Meanwhile, Madara leaves his battle with the Kages and joins Obito in battle.

High Points

  • More Uchiha = More Good

Low Points

  • The chapter was nothing more than a flashback and a pep talk until the last frame.

Rants and Raves

There isn't much to rant or rave about this week, but I will say that I'm upset that the writer pulled a Kubo us and had a fight take place off screen. I really wanted to see how the Kages got "taken out". I put that in quotes because off screen deaths usually result in the dead person coming back later for one last attack or getting medical attention once the battle is done with.

Grade

A solid chapter that gets a well deserved B-. Double the Uchiha fun and the promise that will bring saved it from being lackluster in my book.

I would have named this chapter "Damn you couldn't call a brother?!" lol and man i called this on mylst post i think im psyhic. i'm kinda excited now that means orochimaru and sasuke are headed there as well. ROYAL RUMBLEE!!!

There has to be more here. Obito is mad at Kakashi for letting Rin die yet Obito was "alive" and didn't try to do anything himself?

Since only the last 4 pages of this chapter mattered I would give it more like a D. Not much substance at all. We have already seen that flashback material. Don't beat us over the head with it.

I will be seriously disappointed if all this is over a boy who is upset over a pre-teen crush.

so all of this war and Moon eye plan is Kakshi's fault, then, isn't it?

So, now Obito is Red Hood mix with Dark Vader LOL!

Jinbeifan1on Sept. 5, 2012 at 9:10 p.m.

wow whatever respect for the character of Tobi is now gone, why is every villan in this show crying over someone dying?!? Sasuke, Obito, the akatsuki, Pein etc. I hate the show even more! why cant one of these villans be evil for the sake of being evil? why not control the world for the sake of being supreme ruler, not to "clense" the world of supposed evil? god i swear, thats the only thing naruto villans seem to think about, a bunch of whiny bitches taking their pain out on the world. its getting stupid -____-

Wow, Naruto villains menage to get lamer and lamer with each chapter.

Itachi (till not being screwed by the plot) and Orochimaru were actually good big bad villains.

Well Kisame as well, but he was kind minor.

@Fehafare: Kisame was never a big bad but like Orochimaru he didn't get to go out in a cool way imo. Tobi's motivation is kinda lame (this was really all for a girl?) but I like his crazy Dorothy Catalonia-esque method of bringing a manufactured peace to the world via crazy violence. Madara is straight up awesome though. All the other Edo were lame and didn't really want to be there but Madara seemed happy as hell to have been brought back for another chance to beat the crap out of people. I really wish we could have seen exactly how he handled business with the Kages.

I'm sure it's going to fall under the same kind of clause that Itachi fell into when he decided to terminate the uchiha clan. Obito probably made some kind of side deal with madera to enhance his skills or was picked as a potential bad ass replacement and had to fake his own death to go so damn undercover nobody would know who he was. Obviously before going down that path and saying goodbye to everything he loved he left some kind of bullshit entrustment with kakashi. But that's just speculation I'm sure we're going to be in flashback city for a MIN-NOOOOOOTE!
