The art is well done, but that's not saying much when the vast majority of the pages are filled little more than Naruto and Obito just staring at each other.
One of the hardest things to do in writing is to craft a good villain. You think it's easy, but it's not. Anyone can make a mustache-twirling baddy or mass killer, but those aren't who you want for your main antagonist. A truly great villain is a character that you may not agree with, but you understand their motivation. When it comes to Obito Uchiha, Kishimoto has utterly failed.
This idea of redemption worked when he used it with Nagato, because he had been manipulated by Obito for years. Obito has no excuse. Madara may have misled him, but he was dead for decades. Obito then went on to manipulate and kill possibly hundreds of thousands of people. "I was just following orders" has never been a valid defense in war. He then went so far as to kill Neji just to make Naruto feel despair. This attempt at redemption has come far, far too late.
For the first time in a long time I struggled to read this chapter of NARUTO. On several occasions, I had to stop myself from skimming the pages. This may have been an acceptable conclusion to this war if it had been maybe a year long, but this has been stretching on for three years and had some of the biggest set-pieces in the series' history. This is the war of all wars for the NARUTO universe. Yet it looks to end with both sides shaking it out. At least it wasn't a fist bump.
