This chapter was awesome!!!! When I read the spoiler I thought there wouldn't be much talking ( and I really wanted Naruto and Itachi to talk) but it has epic talking AND epic fighting! I just loved this chapter ( It was good to see itachi after so long:D since he is my favorite character. He really is amazing being able to stand agaisnt B and Naruto at the same time)

THE GOOD: Okay, so we get to see more of Naruto's growth, and get to match his ability against Itachi. I also suspect that Bee, one to one with Nagato, would win (with Samehada). I like Snakebutt's scheming, although I think he's probably wrong about how much influence it will gain him, in that I don't think he'll be able to hold the chips he's planning on bargaining with -- even if he wins.

THE BAD: Too short! Freakin' too short! It felt unresolved, even as a cliff hanger.

THE UGLY: Why oh why do you tease us, Kishi? But that crow wriggling its way out of Naruto's mouth looks ominous, and I'm pretty sure it's eye symbol is new to the manga, so it's probably a novel power we haven't seen before (oh, wait, that's not ugly -- it's good!).

I would just point out that he does have his brother's eyes now, and he did beat a Hokage before he even got them; we haven't seen him in action with his new eyes yet, so it's hard to say for certain. At some point soon EMS Sasuke won't be hype anymore, and then we'll know.

Your speaking of Danzo? That match was kind of handicapped. I'm going off of what Sasuke shown against Bee. Based vs. Based he couldn't even stand toe to toe with bee, but Itachi is doing it with ease.

I like Itachi's new flame shuriken jutsu. Its sorta like Pheonix Flower but with shurikens either way.....EPIC!!!

Thus my last sentence: he's got EMS from Itachi's eyes, and we just don't know how good he is now. He might easily have an easier time with Bee, given a rematch. We have to wait and see.

What a chapter. So the gift Itachi gave to Naruto is essentially a third eye; an EMS Sharingan.

I think this crow's eye will probably defeat Nagato. We've also seen that Kabuto is most likely working against Madara in the shadows... He's obviously planning something...

nice chapter, fighting and talking should be cool few chaps. Itachi's face when Naruto tells them he controls the 9tails wow. picture=1000 words. Itachi seems to be keeping Bee on his toes. Samheda doesn't seem to like fire.

i don't see Itachi fighting Naruto so comparing their speeds is not a legit thing imho. i don't see Naruto trying to destroy them he wants info first.

i wish they talked more but at least they got to what the Itachi's gift was which HAS to be explained next week, which had been a cliffhanger since forever. i thought it was some anti Sharingan ability since the crow came out right when Itachi hit Naruto with his eyes, or maybe he triggered it to come out with his eyes. the crow does have sharingan too, and it looks like a new design which i guess is supposed to be different for everybody? i don't know...

i keep getting the vibe Kisame and Orichimaru are still alive too. i guess the latter seems a pretty popular theory given Kabuto's history and his whole snake persona now.

I know one site was missing a page or 2 and it was Killer Bee pulling out his seven mini swords out of Samehada's mouth and blocked all of Itachi's shuriken and took his original seven sword fighting poses and charged at Itachi.

itachi is now in full power wow itachi is the strongest akutsuki no dought other than madara of course. plus that crow`:shock: dang itachi jjust got cooler haha.

I liked the intense mixture of dialog and action in this week's chapter. Along with the bit of a twist at the end. As well as Kabuto showing that his awesomeness will become greater sometime soon.

mrsticky005

Heh, then you are worse than a moron by that standard.

Maybe.

But Itachi is a moron.

He was a genius before when it seemed like he expected Sasuke could
turn evil. But now when Naruto told me it was totally out of left field.
It was like "Sasuke turned bad? I never saw THAT one coming."

Itachi worked with Madara to destroy the clan so I don't see how
he could not know that Madara also knew about the truth.
Madara was there with him.


Itachi is a moron because he basically led Sasuke right into Madara's hands.

Madara outsmarted Itachi.

Sure he did the whole crow thing with Naruto. But now that is seeming
more like he did it because he just had a bad feeling rather than
knowing that Madara knows the truth and could tell Sasuke.

Defcon
07-27-2011, 02:02 PM
I think it was rather the expression of "I hoped Sasuke didn't make that decision". Well Madara was there but Itachi might, or like i see it here never told his motive for destroying the clan. Allthough that indeed seems a bit naive. (but he did install amaterasu in sasuke's eyes) Nonetheless, i wouldn't call itachi a moron. It's more like the story forces him to make some errors just to make it exciting.

If that last sentence is true, then that is an example of poor storytelling. A character's reactions should grow out of either logic or history, otherwise, as has been said, it makes them look stupid (or crazy).

07-27-2011, 02:17 PM
Itachi was right. Sasuke should've gone back to the Leaf Village. Madara's the bastard who didn't let it happen. But I believe that Madara is using the same power on Sasuke that he did on Yagura, in smaller doses. After all, there's nothing to suggest he ever lost that power, so why wouldn't he use it on Sasuke? Honestly, since I've had this theory so long, I'm going to wait until it's proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'm wrong before I claim Itachi was a moron.

Edit: Honestly, stop posting so fast. By the time I finish with my thoughts the situation is changed. In the defense of Itachi, I'd make the arguement that Itachi might've anticipated Madara knew the truth, but not that Madara could manipulate Sasuke through Dojutsu, so Itachi was expecting Sasuke to go back to the Leaf with Naruto.

He would be. Though I don't think he needs to be around.


Question:

Had Itachi's plan gone through and Sasuke DID return to the Leaf...

What would Danzo do? Would he kill Sasuke? (Sasuke would have MS
but he would have virtually no idea who Danzo is. Sai Shaft may
have mentioned Danzo's name. But Sasuke doesn't know what
Danzo looks like given Zetsu had to point that out.)

skibum
07-27-2011, 03:31 PM
I think you are going to see that Itachi gave Sasuke the power of his right mangekyou and naruto the power of his left (Tsukuyomi). It would explain why this power wasn't handed down to Sasuke (because he gave it to Naruto earlier) before he was killed by him. Unless you think the Tsukuyomi that Sasuke performs is Itachi's technique. I would think that's why his MS isn't present in his left eye. Just a hunch. But, as everyone has said the crows mangekyou looks different than Itachi's. It has an extra blade and the looks of each blade appear to be straighter. Perhaps it gives Naruto a different way of using the Tsukuyomi. My prediction for the next chapter will be Naruto placing Itachi under Tsukuyomi so he can talk to Itachi without anyone knowing. It wouldn't seem that Naruto would use the technique to harm anyone and if used on Sasuke it would probably only activate when he uses Susanoo or Amaterasu. But who really knows, I'm just excited for next week.

Chakra Mode my as RS Naruto sound way more bad ass.

To that person [people ?] that was saying that Itachi had no intention of Sasuke going good and what not. Read page 6 would you? He CLEARLY 100% intended Sasuke to go good and go back to Konaha after his death.

Page 7 made me super happy Was that Madara?

Itachi is GOD here, keeping up with RS Naruto!

Page 8 So Madara knew about me?

The last page was awesome, though this is the 1st time we saw this Itachi with one normal Sharingan and one MS.

However, it'd be nice if someone could clear this up for me: On the last page, you see Itachi's full face as he activates his right sharingan. Then, in a smaller panel, there's a close up of what seems to be...his left sharingan? Did he activate both? Or am I just confused...?

plan that really relied on pure luck and then this chapter showing that
Itachi's plans weren't as amazing as everyone thought they were
I call Itachi a moron.

Wow so much contradiction and ignorance in this post. You say his plans were based on complete luck and then call him a moron for them not working out? NICE ONE BRUH. And it has been clear to all of us for some time now that Itachi's plans weren't as amazing as everyone thought they were considering Sasuke turned evil.

This chapter goes to show that:

MS Itachi>>>>>>>>>>>>>>MS Sasuke

Killer Bee b*tched slapped Sasuke, Jugo, and Suigetsu all over the place but Itachi by himself was able to keep up with both Naruto and Bee and hold his own so easily with them as well.

That's not a contradiction.

He made a stupid gamble and it failed. That's why he's a moron.

It's like with Tsunade gambling on Naruto...except due to plot it works.
So Tsunade seems like she's all clever when she's really anything but.

Itachi fails.

Lol, so did anyone notice, Nagato can stand perfectly, but not walk? xD
Really loving his "attraction" pull thingy move, very cool. Good ol' days with Pain...
Nice to see something new from Itachi too.
And also very cool to see Bee fighting with Samehada, and he retains his famous swords collection, and Naruto also doing a little bit.
It'll be great.

i was hoping new and sexy too but i think they all have different sharingan designs in their eyes. maybe i'm wrong i dont know....
Yeah, the crow's has four points. I'd lol so hard if this was merely just a mistake on Kishi's part :p but, hopefully it's something interesting, hence the cliffhanger (awww, poor Naruto was crying xD).

I'd say rather that his eyes were watering from pain/discomfort, like when you yawn or get something caught in your eye. I wouldn't really call it "crying." Now Gaara, that was crying. What I really want to know is if Itachi's gift is permanent. It would be kind of a letdown if it wasn't...

Itachi seems to be acting in a nice way now. And my question is why? It's good he's helping Naruto a little but they can't change the personality of a awesome character.

Well itachi was always nice per-say. he only did what he did to protect his brother, village and clans reputation. now that hes freed from his burden he can be "himself". but I don't think naruto or bee know any sealing jutsus' so this fight is either gona get interupted or the gona fade away via tnj.

^Agrees.

This chapter was quite enjoyable to read. Brought back some memories and starred with four of the top strongest ninja in the Naruto universe. Hope this intereaction between the four develops further later on. Good job kishi. I can't wai to see what Itachi's gift does. :)

This was a great chapter. I can't wait to find out what Itachi's gift truly is. They absolutely have to explain it next week!

I think this is his normal personality actually.

Whatever the gift is, my primary point of curiosity is if it is permanent. If it is, it will make Naruto incredibly powerful, assuming it shores up his defense against genjutsu.

Great chapter! I loved it. I haven't been this excited about a chapter in a while. Kishi really out did himself here. Looks to me like the MS activates Itachi's Gift, it's most likely a defense of some kind (originally made to use against Sasuke) because Itachi turned it on while he was Naruto's enemy knowing full-well what would happen, that and he turned it on while Naruto was in danger. Can't wait for the next chapter!

THE GOOD: Okay, so we get to see more of Naruto's growth, and get to match his ability against Itachi. I also suspect that Bee, one to one with Nagato, would win (with Samehada). I like Snakebutt's scheming, although I think he's probably wrong about how much influence it will gain him, in that I don't think he'll be able to hold the chips he's planning on bargaining with -- even if he wins.

THE BAD: Too short! Freakin' too short! It felt unresolved, even as a cliff hanger.

THE UGLY: Why oh why do you tease us, Kishi? But that crow wriggling its way out of Naruto's mouth looks ominous, and I'm pretty sure it's eye symbol is new to the manga, so it's probably a novel power we haven't seen before (oh, wait, that's not ugly -- it's good!).

The crow was put into Naruto by Itachi a long time ago. Itachi said that he hoped he'd never have to use it.

Yes, I know. That makes it more ominous, not less, if that's what you meant...

Made me mad how short it was. Like two or three pages shorter then most other chapters. I can't be more excited for this weeks installation though.
