Well, it was good. I did re-gain my lost respect for Sakura again. I'm a little upset that A and Tsunade actually made it to Naruto and Bee. Now we have to watch this either incredibly long fight, or sit through an even longer and boring flashback. I just want Naruto to get to this war already. I honestly wish he would just master Time Space Ninjutsu already and just teleport there. I was happy to see Itachi and Nagoto, my two favorite Akatsuki Memebers, again though.

It was alright.

1. Sakura is still as blind as she has been since the start of the series

2. They can't come up with a counter stragety yet.

3. And Tsunade made Bee stop in his tracks, make him go wide eyed and his mouth drop. And trip over his rhyming. Now I am wondering if there is more to be than what we see now in Bee.

yeah. that slug split into tons of smaller ones in the Pain arc so it can probably be a lot of places at once like zetsu clones.

i knew they'd end it right there when Naruto and Bee run into Raikage and Tsunade i didn't even bother to turn the page to see if it went on. I don't blame Bee btw i've always thought Tsunade was super hot.

I'm sincerely dissapointed with the some of the first comments. tsk...tsk...tsk.

Boring?! How? It was actually, somehow, funny and enjoyable.

Page 1: Love Fodder deserves more love and appreciation and Sakura can't give him that. You'll find someone, who can trully appreciate you, until then don't give up. ;~;

I'm guessing Itachi and Nagato will have an important contribution for Madara's plan to succeed. That would explain why Madara is sparing them.

I found Fake Neji extremelly talkative compared with the original.

Page 11 (12): Fodder Ninjas relieving themselves, while the enemy is sneaking behind them. "How much red can you get out" :lol: Acceptable joke is acceptable

Last pages: Raikage is a BEAST. Naruto's Harem no Jutsu proofed to be unneffective against Bee, yet Tsunade's E-cup twins made him relapse.

Lady Tsunade
05-25-2011, 01:37 PM
Tsunade left a Katsuyu division at HQ so A and herself could still be aware of whats going on while they were setting out to stop Naruto and Bee. Tsunade always seems a carry a small Katsuyu division when she's heading out to battle though, or at least this is the case as of Part II, note that she did the same thing during her attempt at fighting Pein. Not sure if bringing Katsuyu with her served any purpose other than to feed her information tbh.

I love Madara's day-long battle misdirection, and I'm glad Kishi took advantage of skills in a creative way, but not enough to save the chapter.

Actually, I'd have loved a few more chapters of the mystery mayhem while it was still a mystery. This stuff's happening everywhere, after all, so I'd love to see how reduced each division is now. Sweet that Zetsu killed off senior surgeons though. Fodder or no, those guys were sorely needed.:shock:

they are most likely going to reform the groups. they will probably tell everyone to go their villages. certain people will be obvious (like a hyuga belongs with konoha) but most will be difficult. once in section, they will be asked a simple question by their comrades. that should take the rest of the night.

Chapter was okay. I liked how Kishi disproved the other Neji predictions before revealing it was Zetsu.

Naruto's negative feeling sense thing is kind of cool. Raikage and Tsunade showed up pretty cool, but Naruto's entrance to the Leaf Village during the Pein Arc was still cooler. Nothing compares.

I don't have an issue with Sakura...

No, no Madara's strategy is brilliant. Notice how even though they alliance knows what the strategy is, they are no better off.

I agree limiting the attacks to one segment and apparently one infiltrator lessened the impact. Then when we know the reason Kishi let us know how it happened elsewhere, bit of a bummer. What would have been much better is to have people dropping as back story while other events are occurring. Then slow bring these mysterious attack to a ever gathering crescendo, reveal this supposed evil Neji and then have Sakura unmask it. Oh well, Kishi can hit home runs all the time.
Zetsu killed off the leakers too; they will be less missed.

Or possibly use it to Kabuto's advantage. What is interesting is that Itachi doesn't know that Kabuto is the one controlling them. Right now they both think it's Madara. Should be interesting to see their reactions when they see Orochimaru is basically back. b~( A pupil taking on a master's will... it's so beautiful! b~(

Next week, Naruto vs Raikage with color pages!

As for the chapter itself, Sakura did a lot, and for the first time since the Sasori battle, she actually used that monster strength of hers for something. I wish Kishi gave her a battle like the Sasori one. She needs that to make up for that cry personality she has since the Sasori battle. Give her a battle Kishi! And give Tsunade a proper battle as well!

And I hope Kishi remembers about the female character called Hanabi, who's supposed to be Hinata's little sister.

And people say TenTen is being forgotten...

Konoha'sGreenThunder
05-25-2011, 05:33 PM
Okay, Sakura lost my respect long ago, but I'm gonna defend her here.

It's her first war and she's extremely busy and stressed constantly healing and directing people. She has to focus on her job, and her job isn't sensing enemy ninja. So, while she should be alert, she should be able to feel relatively safe and able to rely on her comrades. Yet among the chaos she was obviously suspicious of Zetsu before he said anything about TonTon, and she managed to deduce what was going on and take him out. And why would she need to do anything besides punch? She's in a tent surrounded by allies. So when a punch does the trick, why not?

Hopefully this chapter will finally shut up those who believe Naruto will end up with Sakura (although I am curious as to why Sasuke is dressed the way he is in her image of him, as I don't recall him ever wearing clothing like that. Looks more like Yondaime's outfit).

Cool to see them point out how superior Itachi's genjutsu is to Sasuke's. Sasuke can barely use tsukiyomi, yet Itachi is able to cast it on people (possibly multiple) who are so far away from him that if they were a powerful sensor, they wouldn't be aware of him.

Also, I think it is clear that Nagato and Itachi are not part of Madara's strategy. They point out what we have known all along (Madara had a good strategy before they became pawns in it), so clearly they are being saved for a trump. Possibly this is 'that jutsu' that Kabuto referenced.

Possible Zetsu counters: Kiba, Akamaru and the family (if you can smell the difference between a person and a dog, why not a person and a plant?); possibly the glorious return of Pakkun; Naruto senses them and relays the info through katsuyu to Shikaku for relay to the troops; for some reason I could foresee some reasoning where Hinata's call to action for Naruto's sake somehow allows her to gain some byakugan ability, which miraculously allows her to see through them. Either that or they may have different chakra points, as they aren't technically human (I don't think. Was this ever actually explained?).

So, who is going to win the TnJ between A/Tsunade and B/Naruto?

That was one of the most epic entrances i've ever seen. I must've rewinded that 10 times.

It wasn't as good as some of the past chapters this arc but still pretty good. I liked it. It was pretty funny and hilarious.

Really I hear excuses that says "It feels like filler."

Really comprehend on that. What makes this chapter feel like filler?

Its obvious that Taker would say something ithat dumb. Why would Kishi made Neji a bad guy that would be retarded. We know a lot about him for him to just turn to the dark side. I

Sakura is pretty cunning or Zetsu fell for that pretty easily.

Personally Neji being an Zetsu was obvious however how Kishi did it was pretty good and because it turns it wasn't only Neji was a clone but a bunch of other Alliance ninjas were and Zetsu made clones of everyone he drain chakra from and now are using those clones to kill off ninjas and weaken the forces.

I guess those White Zetsus weren't a total waste of Biju chakra.

@ Wooster ya i agree w/ you that Kabuto is holding them back for a counter. seems highly possible.
Maybe Kabuto will have Itachi and Nagato casr genjutsu on juubi Madara. That would be a twist.

Kishi keeps showing the moon when Itachi and Nagato are talking. Maybe a Kabuto satellite-reflecting jutsu is in the works.

From what i've read an seen in the manga, and the direction the story is heading especially the last five or so chapters. It's safe to say the rumors saying Kishimoto is ending and rushing Naruto are not true. If he really wanted to end this show he would have made this war fast, and with a lot less detail and unnecessary battles. So let's hope were only 60% the way through the story of NARUTO? To insure more years to come it may be necessary for a time skip? But on the other hand if Kishi plays his cards/chapters right the time skip may not be needed. Naruto is a gold mine so thats another reason too.....:cool::cool::cool:

THE GOOD: Sakura backfist. Yes, in magicland one punch is probably as effective as any other, but it's good to see a variation on her uninspired overhand. It's also good to see her jutsu directly connect for a change, instead of just plowing turf, although the results are weak. Of course, I could be charitable and say she pulled it so she could question the Zetsu clone afterward.

THE BAD: I think HQ is freaking out too easily -- considering what they didn't freak out about. They've lost half of their force in a day, and Madara performed a strategic withdrawal from the battlefield with two human weapons containing nine-tails chackra and a powerful treasure. If they were going to freak out, that should have happened already. With 50% casualties, what were the chances they were going to be able to "prepare for battle" by dawn anyway -- even with the medical corps' help?

THE UGLY: I am not a fan of killing a man as he takes a leak. So call me a stick-in-the-mud.

who cares, medical jutsu is still LAME. Do you know what lame means? Basically, would you rather watch sakura heal someone for five chapters or watch naruto battle some powerful opponent for five chapters.... thats what I thought.
Medical ninjustsu takes some mastery chakra skillz....In my opinion it's BEAST! XD

Well, when you know who the enemy is, it is a lot easier to figure out a counter-measure versus when the enemy can transform into an untraceable clone of one of the Allied forces.

Heh, I hoped that once the reveal was made Sakura would just one shot fodder-Zetsu.

I'm a little surprised by the lack of speculation about how much emphasis was put in showing Zetsu-Neji patting Sakura's shoulder. Shouldn't he now be able to mimic her as well? Considering that they are trying to take him alive I'm betting that he'll escape and try to trick Naruto.


The infiltration plan is a decent way to salvage an otherwise simplistic slugfest that the war has been so far. The Itachi and Pain moment continues to highlight how Kabuto is perfectly positioned to completely screw over Tobi's plans.


Somebody mentioned they think Hinata might do something noteworthy soon. As I recall they made note of the concept of bloodline expansions awhile back, so maybe she will unlock an upgraded form of the Byakugan that the rest of her family doesn't have.


As for Tsunade's intentions towards Naruto, she has already made it known that she wants him on the front lines (playing favorites again) but was overruled by the rest of the Kages.

Sasuke was a protagonist but I guess you would deny that, right?

He didn't lose his way, he willingly followed this path, which means he was never a good guy. Right as they introduce themselves he's speaking of revenge and other BS. Naruto and Kakashi almost convinced him to work as a teammate forever and to actually care for others--but like a crack addict he went right back to the path of hate. He was never good. He could become good, perhaps, but he was never good, just... calmer.

:mrgreen:But you seem to take truth as a person insult. Why?:shock:


@Toast Medical ninjutsu is very unexciting, because with the exception of Kabuto and a brief bit with Tsucknads, no one shows the double-edged sword of med jutsu. Let's cause some tumors, people! Some internal bleeding! Anything!:shock:

So it's finally time. I figured those White Zetsu would be useful for something. I wondered why they didn't use Transformation Techniques earlier... Now they will wreak havoc on the Armed Forces...

Oh Kishi, you and your immature and unnecassary bewb jokes. Lololololol. Will the two Kages be able to control the two? I think not.

He saved his friends multiple times. Knowing that he could die. When someone is a protaganist fighting bad guys...I'm assuming he's a good guy...Plus Sasuke thought Itachi was one bad dude...It's not like he was going after the villagers back then... Sasuke was a good guy at one point. He had hate, yes, but Naruto did too...Sasuke took it a step farther deservedly though...But, that does not make him a bad guy (having hate for someone who murdered your family)

I wasn't saying medical ninjutsu was exciting, I was saying it is very useful and without it we would have many dead characters. Also, there really is no double-edged sword of medical ninjutsu, at least none that have been shown.

Well, when you know who the enemy is, it is a lot easier to figure out a counter-measure versus when the enemy can transform into an untraceable clone of one of the Allied forces.

Except that they didn't really figure out a counter. They're being bled white by an enemy that can't really die and doesn't require healing. Oh, they can be sealed or the clones can be destroyed, but the consequence is almost meaningless for the enemy -- especially considering Madara's purpose. And when it actually matters quite a bit, Madara swoops in and steals two sealed assets! Meanwhile, the Alliance is losing living sons and daughters of the Ninja World who have taken years to train and formed emotional bonds with each other. They won't come back, while the sealed assets can, not to mention that Zetsu could conceivably create more clones, or even may have more in reserve we don't know about; after all, what limits him to the suspiciously convenient equivalent numerical strength of the Alliance? Realistically, morale should be at a pretty low ebb, and it's only day one!

Well, you weren't saying that initially, true. There's no denying it's usefulness. However, in regards to your last sentence, that is false. Just look at Tsunade and Kabuto fighting at the Sannin Showdown. They were using med jutsu in combat form--to destroy, not to heal.:shock:

@J.J. Indeed.

You completely missed the point of what I was saying. I meant it is better to know who the enemies are then to not know if the person that is supposed to have your back is a clone or not.

Better? Worse? Such things make little difference when you consider that they are facing total annihilation the very next day. "Prepare for battle," he says? A 50% rate of attrition is as good as suicide. That's not combat, but a death march. So with that kind of casualty rate, worrying about the medical corps -- or who has your back -- is pointless. There's only one day left, after all, if they can't figure a way to counter the much worse problem of the battlefield situation.

Ao is right to freak out. He's just late getting around to it, is my point. It should have occurred to all the HQ staff to freak out much earlier, if they were going to bother. After all, in real terms, their situation was hopeless before Zetsu's infiltration ... because they are fighting undead ninja masters and clones to a numerical draw -- which is unsustainable even for a short period of time. If they were only getting decimated (10% casualty rate) then it wouldn't be so bleak.

Actually that's not quite true. Sasuke was ALWAYS an antagonist. How?
Well, an antagonist is despite popular belief NOT necessarily the same as
a villain. Though they can be the same they aren't always the same.
An antagonist can be described as an opponent, adversary or rival or etc.
Sasuke was from the very beginning, Naruto's rival. Hence Sasuke was
always an antagonist to Naruto. Now Sasuke is become a villain.

By the looks of it Ei only has that one arm but I doubt that will affect his fighting potential that much. He probably just can't use Liger Bomb and that is it.

Like it matters, most of his power from his speed and high defense as well as physical strength.



He snapped a Zetsu neck with one hand
He pounded Jugo with one hand
He broke Ex-Blade with one hand
He snapped a Susano'o bone with one hand
I think he even broke one of the Eight Tail's horns with one hand
He blitz Kisame with one hand

I think he handle Naruto with one hand too.
