Naruto Chapter 699 – “Shinobi”

Naruto chapter 699 - Shinobi

This chapter took me a journey through Sasuke’s heart and allowed me to open up and gain a deeper appreciation for Sasuke as a character

It is quite unbelievable but prior to this chapter I was feeling detached and uninspired by the way Naruto was concluding and how the Naruto and Sasuke battle fitted in with the rest of the story, but just through this chapter, all those mixed emotions I had concerning the end of the Naruto came together and connected. This chapter dispelled the confusion I had towards the way Naruto was ending and put me in a state of mind where I could do nothing else but love the way Naruto was concluding. Sasuke expressing his true feelings was definitely the highlight for this chapter for me, it revealed a whole new dimension to his character I had never seen before and I found myself loving how he came around full circle again after his journey through the story of Naruto.

Naruto Chapter 689 – Team 7 VS Kaguya

Naruto chapter 689 - immobilizing Kaguya

So much can happen in the span of a second…

That was quite the exhilarating battle which featured all the members of Team 7 (save Sai) in one way or another in trying to successfully immobilize Kaguya to begin sealing her. Despite Kaguya’s best attempts in trying to slither away from the barrage of attacks and counter attacks, everything she defended and attacked with was just unable to stop the strength of Konoha’s team 7. With her on the edge of being sealed, will she be able to get herself out of this situation or is this really the end of Kaguya? And what about the Shinju, when will it finally show up in its true complete form?

Naruto Chapter 686 – Obito’s Scarifice

Naruto chapter 686 - Obito and Kakashi - colour by StingCunha (http://stingcunha.deviantart.com)

Ready to protect the future – colour by StingCunha

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.

Naruto Chapter 685 – Locating Uchiha Sasuke

Naruto chapter 685 - Time is short - colour by X7Rust (http://x7rust.deviantart.com)

Time is short – colour by X7Rust

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.

Naruto Chapter 684 – The Core Dimension

Naruto chapter 684 - Kaguya and Black Zetsu's plan

What is this “plan”? Tell me please!

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.

Naruto Chapter 683 – Prepared To Die

Naruto chapter 683 - Uchiha Obito - colour by AR-UA (http://ar-ua.deviantart.com)

The man behind the “mask”, Uchiha Obito – colour by AR-UA

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.

Naruto Chapter 676 – Team 7 VS Madara

Naruto chapter 676 - Sakura activating the Byakugou no Jutsu

There is still time for Sakura to get a moment to shine, hopefully Kishimoto-sensei manages to make it happen

I was wondering if Kishimoto-sensei would take on the challenge of focusing on Sakura and have her join in on the fight against Madara as she still boast an incredible level of strength and it seems that there is still some hope that Sakura may in fact still prove useful battle-wise within the story. Having Sakura unleash her Byakugou no Jutsu and charge straight for Madara was a badass development, and even though it may not have been a smart move given that she knows nothing about how the Rinnegan functions in Madara, it was still great to see Sakura take the initiative and have something still up her sleeve. The battle progressed by fading Sakura into the background as Naruto and Sasuke became the focus, but hopefully as Sakura deduces what is going on she will be able to lend her strength in helping the two of them stop Madara.

Naruto Chapter 675 – The Propagator

Naruto chapter 675 - the propagator

Madara, the cause of Rin’s suffering…

I don’t get Madara, he is inciting war, conflict, and hatred just so he can “end” it? Does he seriously think the end he seeks justifies the methods and his actions towards reaching it? And the “actual end” that he does seek in an artificially empty one which robs people of the very thing that Madara himself is trying to reach – “life”. I am continually finding myself overwhelmed by the absurdity of the way several Uchiha members think. Rather than helping to solve the problem Madara is just multiplying it with his delusion that he himself is the savior of the world. Madara is just a propagator of conflict.

Naruto Chapter 663 – Sakura And Karin

Naruto chapter 663 - Sakura saving Naruto - colour by pollo1567 (http://pollo1567.deviantart.com)

I believe in your medical skills, Sakura! Do it! Save Naruto! – colour by pollo1567

By far, Sakura and Karin were the stars of this chapter and their actions in trying to save the ones they care for are what made this chapter so awesome for me. Sakura finally getting the opportunity to perform the medical ninjutsu she is so adept in and Karin finally getting the opportunity to unleash her Uzumaki power, for those two reasons and seeing them so determined, I absolutely love this chapter. Madara may have absorbed the Bijuu he captured and transformed in the “Rikudou Sennin”, but I really didn’t care much for that, it just signaled the beginning of his defeat now that he has attained that form. I’m more interested in seeing Naruto and Sasuke being saved.

Naruto Chapter 662 – Heartbeat On The Edge Of Life

Naruto chapter 662 - Sakura attempting to keep Naruto alive

Glad Sakura is still useful in the story, hopefully her chakra last

What made the chapter for me was the focus on Hinata and Kishimoto-sensei actually making some effort to have her express her love for Naruto through action…such a dam shame he made her trip and fall. Hopefully though since she is reflecting on Neji’s death and how he left Naruto’s protection to her, she ends up getting back up and running to Naruto’s side. Apart from that, Spiral Zetsu surprised me, does he have himself wrapped around Yamato enabling him/his will to use the Mokuton jutsu and the five elements? Well at least now we know what the Kages and the Shinobi alliance have been up to since we last seen them.
