What an amusing and heart-warming special chapter, I love it. Now I’m looking forward to this movie even more! Great to see the main cast of characters back together again even if for some random fun, but hahah, what random fun it was, and you could say it was even more “revealing” then your normal Naruto chapter =).
Well that chapter was certainly epic, especially considering the whole chapter was solely focused on the dealings of Naruto and Co., and ah it’s great to see Kakashi again, I missed him =). This battle between Naruto and Tobi has turned into a clash of beliefs; both believe in the “truths” they follow and both are laying down everything in pursuit of their “dreams” although Tobi’s dream is itself is to place everybody in a neverending “dream”, well illusion to be more precise. The more I see Tobi’s desire to “end reality” the more I’m curious toward the reasons behind such a desire, just what happened to Tobi in the past to make him this way?
Hah, I was expecting this from Kubo-sensei, but I was hoping so badly that he wouldn’t pull here what he did in Fullbring Arc in regards to the mysterious Shinigami (which ended up being Rukia), but alas such a thing happened. Hopefully Kubo-sensei doesn’t leave that cliff-hanger hanging too long otherwise it will lose all tension and deteriorate into something quite lack-luster.
Anyway, so the Stern Ritter member, Äs Nödt, who represents the letter “F” utilises the emotion “Fear”. Enjoyed the explanation he gave about his take and philosophy on “fear”, especially the contrast between the fear which has a “reason” and “true fear”. It was interesting and fascinating to see a side of Byakuya which we have never had the pleasure of seeing, him being consumed by desperation.
