Woah. I think I'm leaning towards team Arago as well. I see the biggest problems being biju dama. Thanks for the link.
True about that comment about Naruto. He didn't do anything different even though you expect sage + Kyubi would = epic. Btw that was a second mini retcon by Kishimoto about the Kyubi forms. First he said that clones couldn't be made in biju transformations, then Naruto made clones, then he said that sage mode and Kyubi mode couldn't be used at the same time unless a clone were in sage mode, but he did that too now. If Kishimoto wants Naruto to get stronger he should just give Naruto the other half of the Kyubi chakra. If you ask me he's already too strong because he was stronger than 6 of the other 8 biju combined.
