AV MOD MATERIAL: Weekly NARUTO - Chapter #609

A tale of two bijuu... and powerups.

Naruto #609 - End

In a Nutshell

Kakashi gets a power up from the Kyuubi and is able to bring the fight to Obito in two dimension because of it. Meanwhile, the Bijuu attempt to stop the resurrection of the Jyuubi but fail in their plan.

High Points

  • The story is moving forward.
  • Naruto delivers a bit of smack talk.

Low Points

  • Despite all that happens, none of it interested me too much.

Rants and Raves

Like any good middle of the road chapter should be, there's nothing to really rant or rave about. I've had fan fiction ideas in my head of Naruto leaving with Sasuke to protect him while he trains with Orochimaru and crazy Kyuubi powered jutsu that they could do if it was possible to share chakra. Now I see that the wildness I imagined would actually be possible.

Grade

C+. A very meh chapter. Here's hoping next week is better.

William Taylor hopes everyone checks out last week's "My Eyes Are Bleeding" article, was focused on one of the most beloved and hated Naruto episodes of all time.

I just love how Kakashi was beating Tobi up, but everything else was meh

Also love how Madara is just chilling on the side lines

At least there was more fighting than talking, I think. Kakashi finally land some major hits to Tobi. I'm looking forward to the Ten Tails fight.

This is probably the first time I've read a scanlation and hated the translation variations between the different sublets.

I liked Kakashi boxing Obito inside the Kamui Dimension

@Kuro_San: It was funny. After all he did, it seems like it's over for Obito. I hope that they give him and Kakashi an insane intangibility battle where both of them are going intangible in multiple body parts at once and jumping into and out of their eyes.
