Naruto Chapter 696 – The Fated Battle: Loneliness

Naruto Chapter 696 - Sasuke's darkness

Does he really believe he can save the world by destroying himself?

Sasuke truly was deeply scared by the mechanisations of the Shinobi villages built upon the fear of war and desire for power. Itachi had to bear such a burden, but it was through Itachi’s sacrifice and him being abused by Konoha did Sasuke come to see the consequence of nations being left to operate on their own. In order to prevent another person from suffering the way he did, Sasuke intends to cast himself back into the darkness of loneliness, all the while manipulating the Shinobi nations from conflicting with each other by directing all their hatred and grudges to himself, and he intends to bear with it for eternity.

Naruto Chapter 695 – The Fated Battle: Friends

Naruto chapter 695 - Naruto vs Sasuke

These feelings through their fist

Despite Sasuke understanding Naruto’s feelings for wanting to stop him from returning to darkness and being alone, does the revolution Sasuke envision really mean that much to him that he is willing to ignore both Naruto and his feelings and ultimately discard them? Sasuke doesn’t seem to be taking enjoyment in doing it, but he is willing to kill his own heart in order to fulfil what he believes to be the path to becoming the “true” Hokage and creating a present free from the conflicts and suffering of the past. It is quite tragic that such good friends have to face each other in such a situation because their desires in wanting to create a peaceful world stem from differing and colliding methods.

Naruto Chapter 692 – Sasuke’s Revolution

The inevitable battle between Sasuke and Naruto begins – colour by DEOHVI

I suppose it was fated for the Naruto vs Sasuke conflict to be the climatic event of the series and thanks to this chapter such a scenario has been set-up. Honestly, while I had expected it, after all the developments Sasuke had gone through after meeting Itachi and realising that revenge isn’t the path that will lead to a positive end, I began to think Sasuke was starting to redeem himself and open his eyes to the actuality of the world and suffering. Apparently though, I was wrong, even after meeting Itachi and hearing him out, Sasuke still intends to fuel destruction by destroying the shinobi system, which includes taking out all five of the Kages. All I can say is I am disappoint Sasuke.

Naruto Chapter 659 – The Rinnegan

Those eyes which have yet to expose the sheer depth lying within – Rinbo Hengoku – colour by IITheYahikoDarkII

I was worried that the battle with Madara would be similar to the one we seen against Obito, but it turns out that won’t really be the case, especially with Madara boasting his control over the Rinnegan is at levels of the Rikudou Sennin. Also with Madara versing the Bijuu instead of only a person, that is a new element to the battle which wasn’t present in the battles before the war, though I do wonder how long this type of battle will last until it does come down to person vs person.

Naruto Chapter 658 – The Force Known As Madara

Naruto chapter 658 - Revival - colour by NarutoPants (http://narutopants.deviantart.com)

Madara’s revival advances one step further- colour by NarutoPants

Well I admit it is impressive that Madara is able to take on all nine Bijuu and only come out with an arm lost, but the amount of questionable methods he used is concerning. Firstly how was he able to absorb Sasuke’s Amaterasu last chapter and how is he able to summon Susanoo this chapter when he had no Sharingan eyes? Can Uchiha actually utilise their jutsu without the need for their sharingan? I can’t really say the prior 657 chapters support that but who knows, Kishimoto-sensei may have some logical explanation to crease out these plot-wrinkles.

Naruto 656-657 – Back From The Dead

Well of course he had a plan, he is Uchiha Madara – colour by StingCunha

Well I’m feeling incredibly uneasy and uncomfortable now…I feel so trolled even though I was expecting to be massively trolled by Madara. Ah I really hope this Madara battle doesn’t span as long as the Obito one because that did take a while and effectively what Madara is trying to achieve is the same thing as what Obito tried to achieve – to become the Rikudou Sennin. We all know Madara is going to be kicked to the curb, so let’s hope Kishimoto-sensei speeds things up and skips over the Madara trolling the Bijuu to the part where Sasuke and Naruto wipes the floor with Madara.

Naruto Chapter 654 – The Void In Ones Heart

Naruto chapter 654 - Obito's realisation

Within the palm of your hand you search for the answer to who you are…

It is inevitable that we feel some emptiness in our lives at times, something lacking, something missing, something inducing a feeling of incompleteness. Why we feel that way and what we should do to fill this emptiness we label “a void in our heart” is a mystery without an answer. Rather than a piece to fit into such an emptiness, it falls down to a state of mind and accepting you feel that way and moving on. Eventually you will find that “gaping void” not so empty anymore. As the master of our own souls we alone have the power to change who we are, but at times there is only so much we can do alone and this is where the support of others comes into play, holding you up and pushing you to continue to believe. Kishimoto-sensei has incorporated a lot of meaning and significance within this battle, highlighting messages that go beyond the related characters, messages that inspire and resonate with the reader.

The Most Powerful Duo – by EspadaZero

I love it, I love it intensely; the way the scene is set-up for Naruto to epically rebut Obito’s war-ending attacks, ah it sends shivers of excitement and happiness down my spine and across my body =D. It’s obvious I’m biased towards Naruto but I just find his character so incredibly inspirational and once again in this chapter he has affirmed why I admire his character so much. That belief in himself and his ability to stop negativity from growing to a point of inducing hesitation and doubt, it’s incredible how much control over his being he has at such a young age.
