I did have a feeling that Obito would end up giving Kakashi both his Sharingan, but as of chapter 687 when Obito crumbled into ashes, I discarded such a possibility. Who would have thought that Obito would use chakra and his Kamui ability to force his spirit back towards the physical realm to send whatever chakra his body had remaining into Kakashi to manifest both his Mangekyo Sharingan in Kakashi’s eyes. Obito, even when dead, refuses to stop fighting, one has to admire that about him, he is doing everything he possibly can and more to save the world.
Despite the stumbles Obito’s has made in pursuit of finding himself and his ninja way, he managed to persevere through his mistakes and confusion and in the end try to make amends for the suffering and pain he has caused. The anguish Obito must have felt upon the realisation of his hand in bringing about such a calamity as well as countless people’s death, such feelings must have been unbearable to Obito as he finally realised what he wanted was to save the world not end it. Obito knew what he had done was beyond redemption, but regardless, he still tried with everything he had, including his own life, to try to turn the fate of humanity away from complete destruction. In awakening his old dreams and desires, Obito saw what Naruto has been fighting for since Jiraiya put his faith in Naruto.
It is said that ‘circumstances don’t make a man, they reveal one’ and that is exactly what happened to Obito in the current chapter. Obito may have walked away from his principles and dreams when he encountered Madara and after he lost so much, but through all that and the circumstances he has faced, he has now awakened to who he really is. From a lost soul hoping for destruction and delusion, to one now aware of the voice in his heart and soul, Obito has manifested the resolve to walk in front of everyone on this path filled with darkness and pain in order to lead them all into a reality less destructive than the one he suffered in.
Even if Sakura isn’t directly engaging an enemy, it is great that Kishimoto-sensei is trying to focus on her by utilising her medical abilities and combining them with Obito’s ability to open dimensions. It still would have been better if Sakura did actively engage an opponent in battle, but regardless, Sakura giving her all to locate Sasuke in order to help Naruto was nice to see. Also fantastic work by Obito in straining his eyes trying to open the dimensions of Kaguya in order to locate Sasuke. Hopefully he does have enough vitality to return Sasuke back to the dimension Naruto is engaging Kaguya in.
Despite the immense power and ability Kaguya embodies, she was still outplayed by the randomness of Naruto and the sheer audacity his character and actions convey. Not once through the story of Naruto has a villain ever been able to read Naruto and understand exactly what he thinks. Because Naruto goes against the flow of the world so expressively, only until they look in the same direction as Naruto are they able to understand him and once they understand him they realise they have no reason to fight him. Black Zetsu and Kaguya are beginning to understand just how dangerous Naruto is given his unique and gutsy personality.
Obito…after everything he has been through, used and abused, it is great how at the very end he has found out who he really is and what he can really do to fulfil the wishes he had for himself and the wishes Rin had for him. Through the path Naruto has revealed to him, Obito is now ready to put his life on the line and help clear it for everyone else. Even if death embraces him after this, Obito has prepared himself to accept his sins, he has found his own way to fulfil his nindou.
Well that was shocking, I knew the Sexy Harem Jutsu was powerful and useful but the application in which it was used for and the variation which Naruto developed, I am left utterly speechless and stunned at his unpredictability. But that was fantastic, Kaguya’s reaction to the jutsu was priceless, for a being bordering the level of God to have such a human reaction and expression, it was immensely amusing. Naruto certainly is a Shinobi like no other and he is proof that Black Zetsu didn’t have as much control over the history of Shinobi as he believed.
The plan to revive Kaguya was much more elaborate than I had even imagined, for the origins of the plan to stretch back to the origins of the Shinobi, how shocking. Black Zetsu has just revealed himself to be a completely massive enigma, he says he is Kaguya’s child but is he really? From the story he had shared, he was born in moment Kaguya was being sealed away inside Hagoromo and Hamura. The purpose attached to Black Zetsu was to revive Kaguya, and carried that out by manipulating the path of the Shinobi. Black Zetsu manufactured the conflict between the Uchiha and Senju and utilised the Uchiha’s sensitivity to set-up the Infinite Tsukiyomi and Kaguya’s revival. With that revealed, it begs the question, who exactly is Zetsu? Why was he created and who created him?
Oh so Kaguya didn’t place them under a genjutsu but instead transported them to a different dimension, how fascinating, I wonder what the current dimension they are in is and what other dimensions she is able to travel to. Given that Kaguya is so overwhelmingly powerful, it is going to be interesting to see how Naruto and Sasuke manage to overcome her. Will the suggested conflict within Kaguya end up being her saving grace? Or will Naruto have to end her permanently? Whatever the case, so much is unknown about Kaguya, her intentions and her past that is difficult to understand her character and motives completely.
Out of the pot and into the fire, what an extreme development. Madara himself was powerful enough, but now we have Kaguya who has taken over Madara’s body and chakra and transformed it into her original form. Whatever jutsu she used goes beyond even what the Edo Tensei is capable of, to carry out a complete resurrection like that, how outrageous. And what’s even more shocking is the fact that she is able to contain chakra within her body that exceeds the amount which even the Juubi holds. Just how powerful is Kaguya and why does she need an army of White Zetsu? What does she plan to battle against?
