Naruto #604 - Meet again, and then...
In a Nutshell
- I didn't expect Rin to have died literally at Kakashi's hand.
- The ride up to here shouldn't have been more tense than it was.
Rants and Raves
My biggest complaint was a lack of tension. I'm heavily invested in the Naruto world and its lore at this point and Obito's frantic journey through the woods in the midst of his friends impending deaths should have been incredibly tense, but it just wasn't for me. I don't know if it was bland writing, bland translation, or simply because Rin was never really developed so her death is essentially that of some random shinobi, but I couldn't muster up enough concern to get as excited by this as I would have liked to have been.
B. Despite not being on the edge of my seat the entire time, I did enjoy this chapter overall. The idea that Kakashi and Obito can share vision when one of them is under emotional duress is interesting, although it seems like it's a one way street as only Obito has experienced this, and despite a lack of tenseness, I'm excited to see what happens next week when more details about the situation are revealed.
William Taylor slavishly had to pull himself away from School Days HQ to make sure this review came out in the week that the chapter was released... and now it's back to more ecchi melodrama! Find out more via Twitter @mrsickvisionz.
