Kishi what the fuck are you doing. There is absolute NO reasonable asspull to defeat Madara if you give him the second half of the Kyuubi too.
And he hasn't even fulyl powered up yet, he's still missing his eye. Seriously how the fuck are they gonna beat him?
>inb4 Minato takes Naruto to a parallel world where he trains him for three months and teaches him the Final Getsuga Rasengan
>Final Gestsuga Rasengan
>Naruto becomes Rasengan
>but he loses his powers after using it (forever)
>gains them back by Sakura stabbing him with a magic Kunai
If only there was some sort of plot device dropped on some characters that could resolve this.
Do you honestly think Madara will be defeated by those sage weapons? It's pretty clear that they're too weak for them, hence why he dropped them.
Though they're probably gonna do something with it. Does that thing still have Kyuubi Chakra?
It's like he felt threatened by Kubo shitting up Bleach recently, especially with Byakuya Angstyuchi coming back and had to step up his game.
Keep it up Kishi, this is getting to S-Cry-ed manga level of shit and I love the ride.
Whenever any post here is about Naruto, I always imagine that it ends with "Believe it".
Oh god, it has Kinkaku and Ginkaku inside them.
which means it does have Kyuubi chakra.
>Seriously how the fuck are they gonna beat him?
Noone can top Kubo regarding asspulls
>inb4 Kishi introduces bullshit science to his story
haha I cant even tell who the fuck is who anymore
Kubo wins in asspulls, I'm talking about shitty story/characters/fights/badguys/everything
Why exactly did he have those things even?
Last I remember some alliance ninjas used them.
i will applaud kishi if he goes full bad end on naruto
must be some kind of revenge for all the fillers they put on the anime
He had them to ressurect the incomplete Juubi
I can't get over this page like fucking seriously? You are just going to let sealing tools just fall to the ground and not even care about them? I would be fine with this, but the fact that these sealing tools for no reason at all decided to land on Guy and Lee just makes this fucking bullshit.
Fug yeah naruto thread
>Naruto ends with villian winning
Would all be forgiven /a/?
Madara is a bigger edgy faggot than Sauske so no.
He probably drew the other stuff first and then realized that if Madara steals all of the Kyuubi chakra, Naruto can't survive. Then he drew that pointless flight scene and decided to let Lee and Guy save him by giving the little bit of chakra inside those tools to Naruto
I'm pretty sure Naruto will pull out the Kyuubi chakra from Madara because "WE'RE FRIENDS AND YOU'RE JUST EVIL, THE CHAKRA WANTS ME" then teams up with Sasuke who merged with Kiba to get a fine pair of musky animal balls to beat Madara
What's Madara's most used word? It's Hashirama, isn't it?
Depends on how it's done. If the world does reset and the manga starts over from scratch and it's all about Rock Lee, then sure.
If not, then no.
Or Sharingan. Don't Uchiha's shout out Sharingan everytime they use it?
I stopped paying attention, what exactly is Madara's goal? The same as Obito or some edgy shit?
They just introduced a reasonable asspull and Ten-Ten is going to save the day and finally do something in the manga.
Officialy same as Obito. But since he removed Obito it's probably gonna be some sort of different shit.
Kabuto released the edo tensei so that means that Kinkaku and Ginkaku should be gone, right?
He's the one who gave Obito the idea of his goal in the first place
I still don't get why everybody was acting like a total dick to babby nurutu when his parents as the hokage sacrificed themselves to save the village
it will be related to the 2 devices he just spit
Madara's goal is the same as Obito's yeah, or more Obito's is the same as Madara's.
To create a world without sadness or some shit, which is obviously ironic because they're the ones preventing that right now.
Sealing techniques are so weird, they could still be inside, or not, but I think it doesn't really matter because Madara used them up for incomplete Juubi anyway
Because he's the one with the Kyuubi in him which is the thing that did so much damage to the village, and they know how dangerous the tailed beasts are from previous wars and shit.
>ninja jesus's tools?
What about the 3rd Hokage? Time for him to show why he is the strongest Hokage?
but who was shadow
the one approaching sasuke
He used all 5 elements last chapter which was pretty cool.
>Karin doesn't know him
>Second Hokage doesn't know him
Best answer is Shisui.
I don't think even Kishi would go that far to make Madara set up his own doom out of stupidity after wanking so hard how he has everything under control.
They're probably gonna use them on him and it turns out they're useless on him and make Madara look even more impossible to beat
The shoeless feet was a dead give away.
Wouldn't the second Hokage know him?
You'd think his parents dying to seal that thing would kind of offset that
Then why doesn't Karin recognize him?
If it was shishui he wouldn't have any power though would he? Because both his eyes are gone.
>Seriously how the fuck are they gonna beat him?
Naruto is actually narrated byth point of view of the bad guys, Madara was our savior all along.
Deconstruction of shonen final boss battle.
The third Hokage ordered them to be a dick to him
She doesn't like him.
Probably not. Shisui was like a year or two older than Itachi when he died. The Second knew Uchiha Kagami who was Shisui's dad.
You already know the motherfucking "power of friendship" shit is going to win the day.
Really? I missed that
my guess also, he managed to escape the eye jutsu itachi put on him by finally accepting and becoming a full on faggot good guy and now he will give sasuke some weird snake sage shit.
karin did not recognize him because he is in sage mode
Reminder that Madara is still missing an eye so this isn't even his full power.
At least two more dragging arcs confirmed
what if madara gets so OP thatg he breaks the 4th wall and kills kishi?
Power of friendship is only used to turn the villain good AFTER he is defeated. They still need to beat him in a fight
why are you people debating this?
it's obvious taht sakura is going to die saving naruto like that granny did with gaara, and since there will no more kyubi chakra naruto is going to fight with sage mode, and it was proven against obito that it was the only way to damage someone with the power of the biju.
Guys, did you forget that Madara mention somewhere in the fucking page of a certain chapter that Obito has a missing Kagebunshin?
>Sakura not even noticing Zetsu right in front of her
>Kakashi not noticing Zetsu going underground
>muh yellow flash
Kishimoto is a genius at making his characters look incompetent as fuck.
Have you been reading any of these chapters?
He'll get the eye randomly or Naruto will awaken it before dying becasue fuck you that's why and madara will be all like "nope fuck you" take his eyes anyway
What will be your reaction if Sasuke suddenly receives a power-up such as Rinnegan mode?
Well that's supposedly how Madara got his, he awakened it just before he died. So Sasuke could follow.
How about true sharing guan
Also Minato and Kakashi have been fighting TOGETHER against the black Zetsu this entire time. Is that thing really supposed to be that powerful or what?
Then Madara will steal one of his eye and the fucking story continues.
Now it make sense. Fuck it if this will happen.
Karin has never seen Kabuto with his new sage chakra, so she wouldn't know it was him.
Even if he got it, I really don't see how it helps. And considering that Sasuke is so fucking weak right now he could need a powerup like that
Never underestimate the vitality of a black person.
Naruto vs Sasuke is going to happen right guys? I've been waiting 10 years for it. Please tell me it's going to happen.
People are stupid. That's why Madara wants to put them all to sleep.
don't read lol
isn't Minato supposed to be dead?
No, haven't you heard that this shit will have a bitter ending?
He's too powerful for them to be useful. Superman wouldn't need to bring a knife to a fight. Also, you need a substantial amount of chakra to be able to use them, and everybody's pretty much out of stamina at this point.
tbh I dont blame Madara one bit. so many characters got killed in naruto by acting like idiots
Do people actually want to see this? If Naruto gets his Kyuubi back he'll be so much superior to Sasuke it's simpyl ridiculous and if he doesn't get it back then it will only be a close fight because Naruto has been majorly nerfed.
In anyway I'm not excited for that fight at all
Can Madara get doubles?
people still read Nerato?
Sorry anon we cannot confirm this,even so by the looks of it they are pals again and both wanting to become hokage so chances of a fight between them decrises drastically
Wouldn't be surprised. Kabuto might give him the necessary cells.
once he wins doubles is all you will get
there goes your whole argument
Well Tsunade is still around somewhere, her dying would leave a convenient empty chair for Hokage.
>catching up on the manga
>that part where everyone on the battlefield can feel Naruto's emotions and can see his memories
There's going to be 5 chapters of Naruto trying to appeal to his humanity.
They were literally the weapons of the sage of six paths and are considered the most powerful weapons they are. Even with how ridiculously strong he has become he shouldn't throw away these hax weapons. Though he commented how the weapons were hindering him
>how to beat Madara
What is the ever compassing "Power of Friendship"?
It's years past it really mattering anymore, at this point it doesn't feel like they need to have the big stupid fight. Anything after this war is superfluous.
>Has plans for every possible scenario, contingency for his own death, everything predicted in meticulous detail
>Forgets that he just discarded a pot containing the only thing that could keep naruto alive
Way to produce a plot device.
Fuck you Kishi.
isn't that standard shounen?
the epitome of bad writing
Depends on how that will play out. If they actually defeat Madara with that it's bad writing. If it's absolutely useless against him and he ditched it because it was hindering him, it's not
>yfw ramen guy gets everyone to accept Jesus Christ as their lord and savior and the manga ends with madara becoming the first pope of the naruto world. In the last panel Naruto decides to change his dream to one day become pope
>Hey wait a sec, Naruto gave the fox chakra to all of us
>Let's all pool our chakra and send it to Naruto
>And then Naruto was Yoh
Their Kyuubi chakra disappeared when Naruto lost his. He was constantly providing them with Chakra
I'm talking about their own chakra.
I hope you guys don't really think there's going to be a bad end. Would be incredible but it's not happening
he needs the fox's chakra like gaara needed shukaku's
bad writing was him not staying in eternal immortal mode. He could literally spam meteor on the battlefield, with crazy chakra levels he could probably have his susanoo clones all use double meteor at the same time
I'm talking about how to beat Madara, not how to res Naruto.
I honestly didn't expect having to explain my throwaway greentext like this.
This is not Bleach, where you can just put all your soul power into a sword to restore someone's power that was supposedly lost forever (or is it?)
And how would he pull off the Infinite Tsukuyomi then? You don't seem to understand that Madara's goal is not to kill everyone, but to create the dream world where everyone is happy.
Also it only looked retarded before he absorbed the Juubi. Now that he has gone full Juubimode he more powerful than when he was the Zombie with inifnite Chakra
well that way he would have massacared everybody
not make them sleep nicely in eternity
kish sense of logic!!
naruto becomes a human spirit bomb
inb4 some bullshit time/space sharingan asspull undoes whatever happens.
I'm calling it now.
Madara will destroy himself.
The reason or logic behind that are irrelevant and will be asinine. But that's what's gonna happen.
So I Madara basically god now?
>dat creeping fear that this is not the final battle and naruto will continue
Stop it anon. You're scaring me.
it wasnt their own, it was naruto sending it to them kinda like a radio station sending radiowaves, once the station is gone the waves are gone (like nagato with his black rod things).
Holy crap, the art is so bad. I can barely recognize a thing.
Shit... Sasuke could do that actually..
If he escaped asspullnami then he would not be sinister and evil anymore
i just wanted to know who was foot. It's not kabuto because karin would know his chakra/be able to sense oro's chakra in him. I can't think of who it could be that would have an impact at this point.
You're not getting it.
Its the missing kagenushin of obtito
Wait, what if
The way to get Rinnegan is to use that ability of the Et Mangekyo that alters the reality, but not to save oneself but someone else? or some asspull like that? holy shit i can see this coming.
Madara confirmed for Jesus
I want Madara to win and become a happy old Hokage playing with the children and teaching them cool ninjutsu to do at the new year's eve festival.
Also Sasuke will have all his family and everyone will be happy.
>Naruto's final boss is a manlet
Implying he wont fuck your ass with your extra inches
He is a giant in Naruto's world, Japan that is.
Because no one told him that was his son.
Every single named character that wasn't Teuchi the Ramen Guy knew, because they were all in contact with the 4th, knew he had a son, and knew a baby boy was born on the night of the death of the 4th and his wife and the kyuubi attack.
But no one told him, nor did it seem they planned to tell him at any time.
I honestly can't wait for the massive asspull that will needed to defeat Madara it's going to be amazing. I'm actually hyped for something that is going to happen in this manga.
>both Asuma and based Jiraiya were 6'3"
Japanese people are small
179 really isn't that small
True but it's not exactly intimidating.
So who is the mysterious stranger /a/? They fucking left it out again this week.
Madara's brother, forgot his name.
Everyone already knew Naruto is fucking stupid.
I would rather dubs than Naruto.
plot twist for next chapter:
All along the real reason Naruto is obsessed with the ramen guy's ramen is that he infuses the ramen with the nine tails chakra. Next chapter ramen guy feeds him ramen and naruto is saved. He may or may not be the SO6P
Izuna I think, but that cant be him since if he dint die when Madara took his eyes then he would have died of old age already. Is Kabuto.
interesting theory. it says he was the strongest Uchiha along with Madara. but he would only be alive with Edo Tensei, which has been disabled. so im not sure how that would work.
You couldn't dubs even if you had omniscience because you suck that much.
>Final Getsuga Rasengan
Laughed more than I should
Even if you didn't personally know that the 4th's son was born on the night of the Kyuubi attack, it doesn't exactly take a genius to figure out who Naruto's parents were.
I mean, Uzumaki aren't exactly common. And neither are blonde guys. I mean, gee, there couldn't possibly be a famous married couple that fit both of those requirements could there?
If the Third was even halfway serious about keeping Naruto's parentage secret he could've AT LEAST not given him his mother's fucking maiden name. It's frankly a miracle that he didn't find out until now.
Naruto is gonna get revived by either Gaara or Sakura sacrificing themselves with the Chiyoba jutsu
Guy most likely is going to open the 8th gate to fucking wreck Madara at the cost of his own life. Calling it now.
I'm calling it now foot is Grimmjow screencap this post.
>implying its not ichigo
"not only do I have my long list of dna and powers from Bleach, I'm the sage's 3rd son he had but kept secret LOL"
>Kishi reveals that he's actually also Kubo when releasing the chapter
And it will do nothing to him just to show how powerful Madara is.
Neiji x Tenten confirmed in this chapter. I didn't actually think anyone cared about Tenten.
At least Kubo has more imaginaton than Kishi
>Huh, i need some new powerup
>lets give them a new eye/rasengan shuriken, so it can spin while it spins/sealing jutsu/kyuubi chakra
>villains name is Tobi
>revealed to be Obito (tobi being right in his fucking name)
I don't like either Kubo or Kishi
Kubo's idea of powerups is shooting bigger and blacker beams.
Which honestly sounds like he got the idea of some porn movie
Naruto will meet rikudo sennin or the death god, or whoever in the afterlife and come back to life as powerful as madara
But at least his cast has more different powers overall than naruto's cast
And then there's the faggot gary stu MC who gets all powers that ever existed because he's so super special
Naruto will meet PaRappa the Rapper in the afterlife, he will teach him how to believe better and Naruto and Bee will beat Madara in a rap-battle. Madara will be so ashamed he will commit Sudoku on the spot. The whole world is declared Hokage and world peace is reached
it's like a car wreck, I can't stop looking at the mess
the highest power for an Uchiha is actually reached when they lose both eyes.
Isn't he supposed to be dead? He's the reason why Itachi got MS. He had to kill him in order to get it.
It's Kushina you guys. She's not wearing shoes because she's quirky.
She's dead, too, mane.
>this thread is still alive
Mods asleep or incompetent this morning.
So niggas can just straight up fly now? Really? This is the direction we're going in?
the sage of the six paths
that guy in team Jiraiya along with MInato
Naruto's lost twin sister
Only Madara can fly. And I'm sure as fuck Kishi has absolutely no idea how to beat him even
It's pretty much DBZ at this point, enough power lets you fly and shit.
does it really fucking matter? does it really? from madaras point of view, it doesn't matter if they bring naruto back or not since without 1/2 kyuubi chakra all he has is sage mode.
Sage mode couldn't even beat the six paths of pain. Naruto had to almost completely release the 9 tails and even then he was still about to lose.
If Naruto is saved and they manage to keep him alive it'll be with kinkaku and ginkakus chakra. Unfortunately for Naruto that's a tiny bit of insignificant chakra that'll be just enough to keep him from dying and not enough to let him do cool tricks like super speed and shit.
And so he'll have sage mode and it'll take some miracle of an ass pull, or some shit like everyone working together as a team with naruto giving the final blow with a (you guessed it!) rasengan.
The best hope of an ending this series has is that naruto actually dies right now and the alliance goes into despair over losing their precious prophecy plot device child, and then someone rallies them together and reminds them that they don't need people like naruto to want to do things of their own volition.
And naruto stays dead and sasuke becomes hokage. If Naruto lives and becomes Hokage, this series is officially the worst long running manga to ever exist.
Remember Saucegay still has that scroll of Orochi's that Suigetsu found. He'll have some bullshit time travel powers or something
The Tsuchikage can already fly it's nothing too ridiculous in the Naruto world.
>If Naruto lives and becomes Hokage, this series is officially the worst long running manga to ever exist.
Really? After 15 years of sitting through
>durr I will never die before I become hokage
>I don't go back on my words
>muh ninja way
I feel it's the opposite.
>If Naruto lives and becomes Hokage, this series is officially the worst long running manga to ever exist.
I honestly feel like this would only be true if Sasuke became hokage
I haven't listened to naruto yelling about becoming hokage for 15 goddamn years just for him to not.
>If Naruto lives and becomes Hokage, this series is officially the worst long running manga to ever exist.
Oh anon, your naivete is adorable.
All brought back from Kabuto's Edo Tensei are gone. The Hokage ones were brought by Orochimaru.
Eh, if Madara and Itachi found ways to exploit the jutsu I'm sure Shisui could pull something out of his ass. This is Kishimoto we're talking about.
Madara will open the 8th gate too then
>Ichigio is a shinigami, hollow, Quincy
at least Naruto isn't an Uchiha yet
>the eight gate gives you hokage level power
>edo tensei Madara rekt the 5 kage
>broke Tsunade in half
Yeah, Guy won't be able to do shit I'm afraid.
This was actually a really good chapter, probably the best one in years
At so many points at this series I thought Kishi was gonna give Naruto a Sharingan, that I actually think Kishi has the decency of not doing it.
He already played with that thought in Road to Ninja with Menma
can't they trap him in the gorge they trapped the brothers in?
No it wasn't it had horrible writing.
Lee would reach the power of a Hokage. Guy would reach a power that goes EVEN BEYOOOOOOOOOOND
funny thing is they were handing out Rinnegans like candy this arc but Naruto doesn't get one.
Itachi found a way to escape Kabuto's commands. He still ended up disappearing along with the rest.
But several characters have already shown Naruto his dream is a fallacy. Itachi himself told Naruto that his dream to become Hokage so he can be acknowledged by everyone is stupid, since you don't become a Hokage UNTIL you are acknowledged by everyone.
Narutos dream is rather selfish and pathetic since he just wants to be Hokage so everyone likes him. At this point, everyone likes him and idolizes him and thinks he's a God so he really has no point in wanting to be a Hokage any longer since he finally has gained the respect and attention he always wanted from his constant bullying.
Sasuke should be hokage because that's much more interesting to see than naruto getting to do it.
If you think about it, everytime the candidacy for Hokage came up, there was a "good guy" who wanted to do it, and a "bad guy" who wanted to do it, but the "good guy" always wins.
First it was Hashirama and Madara who were up to be Hokage and Hashirama won since nobody liked Madara. Next was Tobirama and Madara and again, Tobirama won since no one likes Madara.
Then it was Danzo and Hiruzen, Hiruzen won because Danzo is a pussy. Then it was Minato and Orochimaru, and the 3rd picked Minato because Orochimaru is a creep.
Tsunade didn't compete with anybody since the 3rd had just died and they put tsunade in pretty quickly. It wasn't really a planned out thing to pick the next hokage, it was pretty rushed.
So now we have sasuke or naruto. Do you guys really want to see another good guy hero jesus christ be hokage again just so the series can still be THAT predictable and boring?
I don't even like Sasuke
The only Rinnegan users are still Obito and Madara this arc.
And Madara being the only legitimate one
It's fucking Naruto
Obito was the one who grabbed the sealing jars to begin with, and threw them into the Gedo Mazou. Madara doesn't actually know that anything was inside them.
>mfw people STILL dont realise shikamaru is going to be hokage
It was extra bad this chapter though.
He will get rasengan shuriken wheels so they spin while they spin while they spin and run madara over with 1000 rasencars piloted by kage bunshin
>Itachi himself told Naruto that his dream to become Hokage so he can be acknowledged by everyone is stupid, since you don't become a Hokage UNTIL you are acknowledged by everyone.
And Naruto already got acknowledged, because he learned that. Still doesn't interfere with his dream of becoming Hokage
>Narutos dream is rather selfish and pathetic since he just wants to be Hokage so everyone likes him. At this point, everyone likes him and idolizes him and thinks he's a God so he really has no point in wanting to be a Hokage any longer since he finally has gained the respect and attention he always wanted from his constant bullying.
No, as you said Itachi pointed out that was the wrong reason to be Hokage. Naruto has matured and learned what it truly means to be Hokage and knows that people already like him
>Sasuke should be hokage
Alright maybe I should've read your post before starting to reply. Opinion disregarded
It really wasn't that bad, and at least we had some good Gai/Lee/TenTen/Dead Neji hijinks. Maybe that's why it was good
But Shikamaru said he wanted to be Naruto's right-hand man
i'm just waiting for shikamaru to prove his worth already. his "strategies" have pretty much all been colossal failures up until now, like his earth wall shit that almost got naruto killed if the 4th hadn't shown up.
Shikamaru already said he wouldn't be fit to be Hokage, but would want to be the advisor of Naruto, like Tobirama was to Hashirama or qt Christmas Cake with a pig I forgot the name of is to Tsunade
I wonder. Shouldn't had the Kyuubi's chakra been extracted from those tools when Madara had them absorbed?
>Don't Uchiha's shout out Sharingan everytime they use it?
I can't stop laughing
Shikamaru's strategies are really Kindergarden logic.
I think Asuma got the IQ test wrong
Naruto will have the same kind of ending as Shaman King with Hao turning into a good person thanks to the power of friendship and being undefeated till the end
Asuma based the IQ test off of his matches of Shogi and Go with Shikamaru.
Shikamaru is literally just that blind bitch from hunter x hunter.
She's in her late 20s early 30s isn't she?
So Bee is dead and no one cares?
wow i didnt even think of that. youre right. what the fuck?
Apparently. He's not the hope of humanity unlike Naruto
>Also Minato and Kakashi have been fighting TOGETHER against the black Zetsu this entire time. Is that thing really supposed to be that powerful or what?
Technically, it's an extension of Madara.
>I stopped paying attention, what exactly is Madara's goal? The same as Obito or some edgy shit?
Obitos goal was Madaras goal.
Madara was just pulling the strings.
I don't know why Madara is stalling though, just fucking do it already.
Guy and Lee can't use them though, can they?
That's probably why they landed there.
There's a panel where a part of his tentacle clearly gets cut.
Everyone has died and been resurrected so many times this series I'm not surprised anyone cares.
His tentacle was cut a few panels earlier. This always translates to a get out of a jail free card for Bee.
>>I stopped paying attention, what exactly is Madara's goal? The same as Obito or some edgy shit?Obitos goal was Madaras goal.Madara was just pulling the strings.I don't know why Madara is stalling though, just fucking do it already.
He wants to remove all remaining opposition. That means Naruto.
>bad writing was him not staying in eternal immortal mode. He could literally spam meteor on the battlefield, with crazy chakra levels he could probably have his susanoo clones all use double meteor at the same time
Pride cometh before a fall
It makes much more sense for Madara to be defated by arrogance
No it was pretty bad let me explain how.
1: (pic related)Minato changes his chakra into a sensor type, but he still wasn't able to sense Zetsu who was 2 feet away from him.
2: see >>101957399 Tools that might have the ability to do some damage to Madara and possibly help Naruto just magically land near Guy and Lee. It was a pure deus ex machina.
3: Neji's death is played for laughs even though he only died that same day. It's stupid.
>3: Neji's death is played for laughs even though he only died that same day
How? She was Tenten was just remembering him.
>this isn't even his full power
What isn't even his full power? He hasn't done anything.
you've got only yourself to blame for reading shitty translations
Where the fuck are the five kages? Last time I checked the 3rd had to save everyone from the Gedo. What the fuck is going on?
They are still fighting a tree.
>>"Try and change your chakra to the sensor type"
...that is so fucking retarded
Why are the zetsu's so fucking strong, it's like they inherited Madara's plot armor.
Like seriously, if his minions are giving everyone this much trouble I don't know how they're going to beat Madara.
Neither does Kishi
Hashirama and Tobirama are taken out, third is weilding five elements at once, Minato is busy giving more Kyuubi chakra to Madara and Tsunade does who knows what
Black Zetsu literally is an extension of Madara
I wish Zetsu would have stayed with the venus fly trap theme. Instead he turned into glorified bunshin
Remember when Tobi made Zetsu pull back when they had a great chance to steal the Kyuubi because 'he's not a combat type'?
Neither does Kishi.
They will be fighting as friends if they do. Devoid of any real malice.
The addition of "chakra affinities" to the series was incredibly dumb, it came never before mentioned randomly in Shippuden when before people just used any sort of Jutsu
>Well Tsunade is still around somewhere, her dying would leave a convenient empty chair for Hokage.
I'd prefer they leave Tsunade alive...her dying seems pointless.
>naruto VS Sauke
what is even the pointof that?
seems silly at this point
He's an uchiha, he bullshitted past it.
I read manga panda...where should I go for scans?
>He wants to remove all remaining opposition. That means Naruto.
He can't be because he had been split up.
is Obito dead or something?
It doesn't change my point. If the 4th Hokage is still able to sense chakra from 3 pages ago he should be able to sense someone that is literally under him, but he doesn't because lolplot advancement. The 4th fucked up in a position where he shouldn't have.
I think mangastream is unfortunately the best scan group for Naruto and Bleach. They're also pretty shitty, but better than panda
Are you seriously discussing naruto
>I read manga panda...where should I go for scans?
Mangastream, they're a few hours late compared to Mangapanda but it's a lot better. Or just read Mangapanda first and catch the MS scan later.
>>He wants to remove all remaining opposition. That means Naruto.huh
I say that, but really, I think it's just that he wants to be thorough and have all the Kyuubi's chakra.
>then why discard Ginkaku and Kinkaku's weapons?
There's no more of Kyuubi's chakra in them. He would have been able to sense if there were any in there. Otherwise he would have siphoned it out of them and then leave.
I'm saying he shouldnt have split up
But that would have required Kishi to actually write new Jutsus
Probably, no one really cares, all that matters is Madara'a eye he has.
Black Zetsu is supposed to be fast as fuck
>played for laughs
It's a war, you can mourn later. Besides maybe that's just how TenTen sees Neji, who knows, she's gotten like 4 pages of total pagetime in this entire series.
I'm surprised that bit annoyed so many people. If nothing else, just interpret it as Neji being happy with getting out of this shitty story.
What was the point of Sasuke getting Itachi's eyes? His eyes still bleed, and apparently the only thing that changed is that he can use SusanoOffwa without going blind.
mfw nobody gave half a shit for nejis death.
I really liked the arc in which shikamaru fatso neji and doggy style went to fight together against orochimarus bitches
why cant they do that again?
what is my qt3,14 blonde girl doing? why cant she mind control.madara? what if ahe does it and tjen kills him.
Why doesnt naruto turn into a girl like he did before to distract Madara?
Gives him another power up.
Eyes are just power up items at this point.
They don't have to do anything specific.
>Ino mind controlling Madara?
She'll get mindraped right the fuck back.
Team Gai is going to save everyone.
They should've just been the main characters from the start, honestly.
>he can use SusanoOffwa without going blind.
Pretty much this and Perfect Susanoo I guess. Does Sasuke even have a Perfect Susanoo yet? Hell I don't know.
I thought she did that to deflect a Bijuu bomb pretty early in the fight? She only had control for like a split second though
not going blind is kind of a big deal
The only one who had ever shown a perfect Susanoo is still Madara.
You know I'd actually love to see Gai stealing the show and go full super saiyan and make the entire earth rumble. At this point Naruto is DBZ anyway, so might as well go all the way
Wow OP you just caught on the guy is a hack.
He lost the ability to create tension long ago in his writing due to the amount of ass pulls he has done.
Once he had PAIN revive all the people he killed....yeah that was the final nail in the coffin for me.
He has trapped himself in the GOT TO BE MORE EPIC THEN THE LAST phase of a dying manga.
Wansn't she controlling the Juubi?
This page is the single worst page in the entire collection of Naruto's volumes. This is, 100%, without a shred of doubt, the page where Kishi just stopped pretending to care.
Why are eye transplants so easy? You literally have to sever and reconnect the optic nerve. Nerves are extremely delicate and complex. Does everyone have a PhD in medicine?
If he does that he'll die.
I couldn't stop laughing when Madara spit up sealing items and then just left them there
Chapter redeemed by the faint possibility of Gai's squad possibly doing something in the future. I love those guys.
He seems to be enjoying himself atleast. Which is nice.
Oh yeah exactly you're right he is definitely faster than Minato The Yellow Flash. Common now don't get ridiculous Miniato fucking up by not sensing him is less bullshit than Zetsu being faster than Minato.
he has a final Susanoo (which everyone else has too) but not perfect Susanoo
Kishi really doesn't care anymore. He really only draws Naruto because he doesn't know what else to do with his life and it consumed his entire identity
Being Kishi is suffering
It's like Dragonball Z, just wish them back with edo tensei or something.
>now he will give sasuke some weird snake sage shit.
Dr. Snakes with two phds and the nobel prize for medicine.
That reminded me of when Freiza came across Dende and didn't think anything of him.
Gai dying is a small price to pay for Naruto to end
Minato is only fast cause teleportation
The Gold and Silver Brothers are in the all-powerful sealing tools Madara just tossed away. They have Kyuubi chakra.
what about bee, tsuchikage, raikage, mizukage, inoshikacho, etc
That was sort of different, Dende wasn't anything to him and he couldn't be bothered to stop and shoot a tiny namek child when he was on the way to somewhere more important
He also wasn't in the middle of a battle.
And, you know, tons of fucking MON-AY he's making with every single release.
Wasn't the blonde Cloud Village chick with huge tits sealed in that thing earlier?
Still though, I forget how one of the items works now.
The big pot. It just a sealing pot?
This is so sad. All he wanted to was draw some manga about ninjas
She wasn't the only one. One of the other cloud ninjas was sealed, too. They got unsealed.
Sometimes I wonder why I even bother to care.
But it's too late to quit now, I'm GOING too see how this shit ends, even if it kills me.
>God ninja tools?
>Naruto will have the same kind of ending as Shaman King with Hao turning into a good person thanks to the power of friendship and being undefeated till the end
That's how most of us are, I reckon. Invested so much time in this dumb series already, might as well stick with it to the end.
He's Madara. Of course he doesn't care.
>I rarely go outside because I'm constantly working on the series
This is a cry for help.
>I'm not even sure they have see saws over there
>not having seesaws in the city
Madara shits gods
>yfw Sasuke resets the Naruto
no...? I've rarely seen that used. They were literally shown all of his memories in their head. Every single goddamn person in the Allied Shinobi Force.
To be fair, in Dragon Ball it was reasonable. After all the whole series basically was based on Shenlong doing stuff you wish for so it was obvious the second someone died that they will most likely bring him back because a reasonable explanation existed
ahh, okay, thanks.
I used to read the english SJ translations, but I haven't bothered to go back to them now that they're only a week behind.
>I say that, but really, I think it's just that he wants to be thorough and have all the Kyuubi's chakra.
Ok, that makes much more sense.
The Ramen guy. He's here to end this war.
Kabuto? Though Karin didn't recognize him...Iruka maybe? though I dunno what he could do here
It doesnt really matter, its fucking ridiculous that black zetsu can out maneuver a kage, one of the strongest to ever live, like that.
That was probably any even bigger as pull than Madara spitting out the sealing tools that landed on Lee and Guy.
To assume the Shikamaru could come up with a complex, genius strategy would require Kishimoto to be able to plan and write all of that in a high constrained amount of time. He can't feasibly do that. In the meantime, it is still canon that Shikamaru's IQ is extraordinarily high.
Being a mangaka confirmed for slavery
Hiramaru confirmed for being Kishimoto
>kishi is a deadbeat dad
That was indeed fanfic tier shit.
He's just giving characters more shit to do in the games at this point
Though the anime is doing that already I think, I know Shino fought that guy from his clan who was one of Danzo's bodyguards in the anime.
Doesn't Oda do similar things?
Like he basically lives in his office and his family comes see him once or twice a week?
What about Konohamaru? He hasn't been seen in a while.
That's how ALL Japanese workers live. There's a reason the father is always absent in anime.
It's also the real reason for the declining birth rate.
I... I don't even feel angry anymore. Man, what a sad story.
How the hell would he be of much help?
Besides, whoever should up moved Sasuke. I doubt Konahamaru has much strength to carry Sasuke away quickly.
He still exists?
>tfw Kishi doesn't even have any time to watch the anime based on his own manga
I bet the Ramen guy is making mad bank selling food to starving soldiers in this war.
Kishi literally forgot his name so I doubt it.
Sasuke confirmed for pure
>this nigga didn't have his honeymoon yet
Thats why he takes so many breaks maybe, both because he's killing himself with his unhealthy lifestyle and to spend time with his family
Aren't dads who never spend much time with their children the norm in Japan, because they are always working?
well do you?
No, Kakashi was actually Minato
>tfw based capitalism saves the world from overpopulation
I'm beginning to think Naruto is a wacky deli situation. Kishimoto is trying to get it to drop in popularity without his editors noticing, but everything he does only makes it more popular.
>My chest feels heavy
>Oh, it's just the all-mighty tools of ninja-jesus
>drops them on Team Gai
Kishi you fucking hack.
I have a feeling Shino and the Aburame clan are gonna save us all.
Aces and trapcards, they always had the coolest counter-strategies.
sounds like Nisekoi
Oda's family are the voice actors
>I'm beginning to think Naruto is a wacky deli situation.
>Aren't dads who never spend much time with their children the norm in Japan, because they are always working?
I would just think they'd plan things further in advance and take advantage of assistants.
Apparently they are draining his power so it makes sense to drop them.
But he should've destroyed them instead
It's from "Rocko's Modern Life."
who is who?
Huh, I watched Rocko's modern life as a kid, but I can barely remember it. Can you link me to the episode?
ok, now I know what you're talking about.
I am /co/, I just come here on Wednesdays to talk about Naruto
It was an episode of Rocko's Modern Life about a burnt-out animator who was contracted to make a new series that he really, really didn't want to. He hires the stupid main characters to make the worst cartoon possible, and it's a hit. Every attempt he makes to sabotage it (like an entire episode that's nothing but a jar of mayo sitting on-screen for 24 minutes) only earns the show more acclaim.
Finally he kills the show by making it good.
Let me see if I remember. I know one of these items seals you inside if you say the word you say the most often too many times. Like how Darui almost got sucked up because he kept changing his number 1 word. The big giant pot is really broken though, all you need to do is call out someones name and have them reply and they get instantly sealed. That's it.
Speaking of Darui, where the fuck is he? And where is Bee? Is Bee dead? Does anyone care?
I'm really bad at this too. I know that Oda is the guy in the middle in the back. Franky's voice actor is the guy with the white hair, Oda's wife is the woman with the child in her arms, Luffy's voice actor is the old woman in the front. The rest I'd have to guess though. I think the guy next to Luffy's VA is Zoro's VA, the guy next to Oda Sanji's and the guy next to that Usopp's. For the women I really have to guess, but I think the one below Oda is Robin's VA, next to her Chopper's and the remaining woman probably Nami.
Uh last guy must be Brook then
Darui is fight the tree I think and Bee probably escaped when his tentacle got cut off. And no, nobody seems to care.
>he's not good or bad, he's just pure
Fuck that. Just fuck that.
>Ultimate sealing tools
>Cold calculating villain plans everything
>Doesn't destroy them, drops them on team guy
I hate this manga.
>Let me see if I remember. I know one of these items seals you inside if you say the word you say the most often too many times. Like how Darui almost got sucked up because he kept changing his number 1 word. The big giant pot is really broken though, all you need to do is call out someones name and have them reply and they get instantly sealed. That's it.
All Hashirama has to do is yell "MADARAAAA" and both conditions will be met with him yelling "HASHIRAMAAAAAA!" back.
I don't think anyone gives a fuck about minor characters when both Naruto and Sasuke are dying.
That's been established already. He's not bad, he just has evil magic autism powers.
In his defense, he later clarifies "Sasuke isn't good or bad, just self-centered," which is a pretty accurate summary of his character.
Bee is implied to be dead I guess, since Madara absorbed all the tailed beasts bar Gaara's one.
>Darui is fight the tree
>Sasuke should be hokage because that's much more interesting to see than naruto getting to do it
Somebody has to.
The best part is the implication that Hinata betrayed her village just to get laid.
Is it bad that I actually kind of want that to happen?
And Madara will die after. The plan is still a success.
At least the artist knows what OTP of Naruto is.
Being a mangaka is truly suffering.
Everything to do with these tools has pissed me off since their introduction. Recall that they came as part of the Impure World summoning. Apparently just copies of the real artifacts.
>Oda is young and attractive
>Oda's wife is hot
I wasn't expecting that.
I thought Kabuto went around collecting shit that the guys he was reviving used in their life. I remember he apologized to Sasori for not being able to get his puppet body back.
Hell I wouldn't be surprised if Sakura dies and Naruto ends up going all emo and heads down the Obito route. Kishimoto loves his fucking parallels and loves jamming them down people's throats.
>I think I'll let have Nagato revive everybody he killed, that will surely make the popularity drop and I can finally have my peace
>What? They still like it? Okay you know what I'm gonna ressurect EVERYBODY who has ever died in this series, except the popular characters. Fuck this shit
>Jesus Christ these people actually still like this shit. You know what fuck you, Obito is Tobi. No fucking twist whatsoever. His reveal will be an entire chapter of his childhood and nothing else
>WHY ISN'T THIS WORKING. ALRIGHT HAVE SOME LASER BEAMS AND 30 CHAPTERS OF NOTHING HAPPENING, HOW YOU LIKE THAT
>Oh my fucking god it still sells, just what is wrong with the world. Alright but noone will buy this shit if I set up the exact same plot again right? I'm gonna give Madara the exact same power up as Obito, people wouldn't want to read the same story twice
>Okay fuck this. I'm gonna ask Kubo how he managed cut the sales numbers like that
>>Oda's wife is hot
Did you really think a man as rich as Kishimoto would settle for an ugly woman?
No, these aren't copies of the real artifacts through edo tensei. Kabuto stole them from the cloud village, all except the giant amber purifying pot.
Kabuto also took suigetsus blade, and all of the other swords he could get his hands on except samehada since Bee was holding onto it already.
One of the recent chapters was named "the real end" and its the one where both are on the brink of death
To me thats the end to a shitty series. Both tried but they died and thats it
Oda. I meant Oda.
His wife is literally a Nami cosplayer he met at some convention. Oda cosplayed as Mister 2
>Put in more ideas so you can expand on them later
So, "the producers"?
She was actually the woman playing Nami in some kind of One Piece stage show they were doing at some event, if I remember right.
I would actually want to naruto to continue if this is what would truly happen.
It would be great.
I don't think he knows who Oda is.
Kishimoto will kill Madara the same way he killed every other overpowered villian: Give them coughcough disease.
It's OTP. I can see her doing it, actually.
>His wife is literally a Nami cosplayer he met at some convention. Oda cosplayed as Mister 2
I don't know what to think about that
Well, no, but I wasn't expecting Oda to be attractive either.
That haircut is dumb as fuck though.
>Both tried but they died and that's it
So that means, everything we're reading now is actually under Madara's genjutsu? I could accept this more than what I'm afraid will happen.
If Kishi pulls this he would have my respect
No, they are all original, they were scattered around the world, Kabuto went and stole what he could find.
>So that means, everything we're reading now is actually under Madara's genjutsu? I could accept this more than what I'm afraid will happen.
I really think that this is going to happen, or will happen at some point.
Think is, I don't know how the story would progress after the genjutsu is cast. obviously, the series can't end with the genjutsu; that'd be a shitty end
This is the same guy who gave us that Itachi vs. Sasuke battle where every time something happened, it turned out to be an illusion.
Is Bee dead too?
How'd that be a shitty end? It'd be Madara winning. That's his end goal. He doesn't' win if everyone is dead.
Naruto kun... Naruto kun... Naruto kun... Naruto kun... Naruto kun...
*power of friendship intensifies*
Naruto reaches a new power level
Minato looks and says "so the legend was true after all"
The Hachibi can probably cut bits of itself off as its special ability, allowing Bee to live despite losing most of the Hachibi.
Now i can imagine him slowly falling into madness and depression as he realizes he can't write anything else.
I'm not sure if I find that more or less ridiculous. How'd he manage it? On such a massive scale? With no one noticing?
What, is he some kind of ninja?
The person's feet are Naruto's mother, who got inside the genjutsu because part of her is inside of Naruto. She's going to the battlefield to tell Naruto he's stupid for believing this is real so he can resolve back to reality.
>sakura calling him naruto-kun
But Madara actually winning would be rather anti-climatic.
It'd be nice as a temporary end.
A great cliff hanger
Like, Madara winns, and the series goes on hiatus for a while.
But Madara winning...i don't know, It'd be a very unsatisfying ending.
But I can't really see Madara changing, he's just too much of a brat.
he's going to mother speech him back to life?
Remember back in the day when people joked that Kabuto was the only real ninja in the series?
>Pretty much this and Perfect Susanoo I guess. Does Sasuke even have a Perfect Susanoo yet? Hell I don't know.
Sasuke coated Naruto's Kyuubi with an armor that's equivalent to Madara's Perfect Susano'o but it wasn't remotely as big.
So, what’s Madara’s goal under the Moon’s Eye Plan? During the “how the Ten Tails came to be Flashback” he told Hashirama every single event in history that took place after humans became capable of harness and manipulate chakra was a mistake, Ninjas should cease to exist; then he basically wishes for his world to become our world? Still, that doesn’t go along with his ideal of Everyone will be a Winner in that world.
where is yamato
where is yamato
I've been wondering about this the whole time since the beasts got sucked up. I'm pretty sure he's super dead now. And nobody gave a shit. And that's terrible. One of the best characters is taking a dirt nap someplace and the only thing the plot is focused on is OH SHIT THE PROTAGONIST IS TECHNICALLY DEAD.
Black Zetsu is controlling him
Guys, Naruto will not get Kyubi chakra from those artifacts, cause, like, brothers was sucked in jubi in the very beggining. But, what if some Original Rikkudo power sealed in those artifacts?
Madara in an Uchiha. His goal is "do something crazy now, come up with a reason later"
He had a LOT of free time once orochimaru died. He spent his free time very wisely, gaining a huge army of unstoppable edo tensei, learning how to be a sage (seriously, people way underestimate this about kabuto. He is a fucking sage and nobody gives a damn because of izanami bullshit), stealing all of orochimarus powers and these hidden artifacts capable of sealing anybody, tailed beast included, within seconds.
He was broken as fuck and if he really is free from Izanami and is there to help Sasuke, he is the only realistic chance of winning the alliance has. The fate of the entire world rest on Kabutos shoulders, he's the only one who can save the day here.
>Honeymoon is 10 years overdue
Wow. Though Kishi really does have a low break rate. I think he only had a total of 19 missed issues up till the middle of 2010, while HunterxHunter missed 276 issues till the middle of 2010
still being tentacle raped by a tree, last we heard. He's pretty much been a plot macguffin since his inception any way. Need a reason to keep Naruto's Kyuubi chakra from going nuts? Lol, I'm somehow of the Harashima bloodline thanks to SUPER-NINJA-SCIENCE
I think it was a joke on how Orihime ressurected Ichigo from the dead by saying Kurosaki-kun a few times
And also powered up through that and suddenly jumped in power ten tiers
You are comparing 2 exact opposites there
I would rather it anti-climatic then cliche power-of-friendship, talk-no-jutsu, convenient ultimate weapon dropping on someone bullshit winning the day.
>by saying Kurosaki-kun a few times
Thats like her entire dialogue in that arc
Who still has tree powers and isn't incapacitated somehow? Tree powers were hyped up a lot and seem pretty useful for fighting a giant tree.
He's in the Spiral Zetsu suit, being controlled.
I don't remember the Guy team being that much like the Rock Lee spinoff
That's the lest asspulley ending I can imagine
Those who are capable of using Mokuton:
Madara = Evil
Yamato = Zetsu's bitch
Hashirama = Incapacitaded
I remember that, I still find it stupid no one ever thought of looking for him... I honestly expected naruto to find him at a certain point
And allowing someone to live without any knowledge of their family is cruel. They could have at least said "You did have parents, and they loved you very much".
It'll be hard to set up a "climax" at this point. Kishimoto has had it cranked to 11 for literally years now. I think he might have snapped the knob off looking for a 12 during the ten-tail Obitojuuriki fight.
Black Zetsu is controlling Obito. Spiral Zetsu (The one with the scat fetish), is the one controlling Yamato, who has super wood powers now from being sandwiched with the Hashirama clone.
I've actually been wondering who's in that damn thing cause it was a little weird for a Zet-suit to being walking around like that.
There's also an unknown number of Zetsus around, including Black Zetsu and at least one mass-produced White Zetsu. Though their Mokuton use is on a really low level.
Obito can use it too.
who is Spiral Zetsu?
Unless we're just giving Kishi way too much credit, he made a point in having Suigetsu blow off a part of the Zetsu's head to reveal and eye and dark hair beneath it, pointing to the idea that is is probably Yamato.
His counter on Naruto Arena is annoying as fuck
Spiral Zetsu is the Zetsu who was attached to Obito for the bulk of the series and gave him the ground-swimming powers.
That goofy spiral-faced plant being that Obito wore when he went psycho nuts after Rin's death. His face looks like Tobi's classic mask.
He's suddenly back with someone else inside him.
This glorious bastard.
if anything, you can describe Naruto as Anticlimactic, so i can see it happen.
ALRIGHT GUYS JIRAYA IS ON THE WAY, ALONG WITH ITACHI AND THAT SHARK GUY
THEY'LL BE THE NEW SANNINS (BECAUSE FUCK OROCHIMARU AND THAT OLD BITCH) AND FUCK UP MADARA'S ASS
If the story is already a mess, it doesn't hurt to have another plothole if it's good fanservice. Seriously.
>There is absolute NO reasonable asspull
What kind of asspull is ever reasonable, if it was reasonable it wouldn't be an asspull, also you’re telling me Kishi couldn’t just make the Shinju appear out of fucking nowhere, using some kind of Avatar, and give Naruto one of its fruits to instantly become a god? It would be against the Shinju’s original motive of trying to fuck up the Sage’s Mother and her descendants for stealing the fruit, but who knows, it could happen.
Well, he didn't give him ground-swimming powers.
Oh my sides
I thought spiral zetsu was one of the original zetsu that Obito was recovering with in the flashbacks.
Sadly, the only climax that can happen is some asspull Bleach-Tier (they're already on the same level) "I'M .2% STRONGER THAN YOU NOW! I CAN DEFEAT YOU!" bullshit. I just want it over with so I don't have to keep reading this series.
I hate how Kishi thought no one was smart enough to figure that out.
I mean, everyone thought it was Obito when he was introduced
>sharingan in right eye
>hides is left eye
>Obito gave his left eye with the sharingan in it to Kakashi
>never found the body
But then he said he was Madara, and that was a legit twist. But no, he was just lying, and it was Obito all along.
The fact that Kishi gave the biggest still-alive flag there is makes it worse.
>never found the body
Obito was shown to be able to dive into things while wearing it, like when he planted those bombs underground for Deidara a few hundred chapters ago.
I liked the idea that Spiral Zetsu had died at one point, and Obito crafted the mask out of the remains and based his Tobi personality on Spiral Zetsu. But I guess the latter part can still be true without the former.
I agree. He's been just... going all out with this stupid shit. I've enjoyed the ride, but seriously, there's gotta be some falling action in there someplace.
I think the only true climax that can be had is that if Naruto straight dies at the end. Like I've been wanting form the start. Nothing against the poor blond bastard but it would give the title some weight. Like its the story of the man who saved the world but died doing so. Hopefully becomes Hokage posthumously
It's a different jutsu.
That's just Obito's own Doton jutsu, which he probably has from his Mokuton talents. Kakashi and a number of others can do it too.
So then who is the other Zetsu we've been seeing for the majority of the post-timeskip series? What the fuck are these things?
Not to mention the fact that "Hokage" isn't a rank, it's a fucking job.
A job that Naruto is not able to do - he has no leadership skills, has zero variety of skills, has no knowledge of political affairs, nothing.
Spiral Zetsu and White Zetsu were always separate, from when they first showed up in Obito's flashback.
wasn''t the final battle supposed to be Naruto vs Sasuke? Did that change or are they going to fight to become hokage?
So Spiral Zetsu is part of the combined black-and-white Zetsu then?
White Zetsu are basically mass produced pod-people that were created as some kind of experiment to harness the First Hokage's wood magicks
The Black Zetsu is the same, except Madara put his personality into it to act as his assistant after he was crippled
The Spiral one is... Did they ever explain what his deal was?
They're just extensions of Madara, kind of like familiars. So it's pretty much Madara vs the world.
Front row: Usopp, Luffy, Robin
Middle row: Chopper, Nami, Zoro
Back row: Brook, Sanji, Oda, Oda's wife, Franky
No! He's completely separate! Think of him as their brother.
Obito last wore him when he met Nagato. Then Spiral Zetsu wasn't seen up until the last few chapters.
>The Spiral one is... Did they ever explain what his deal was?
He's like the White Zetsu but made to allow people to wear him.
Madara could have designed him in order to allow his old self to leave his cave for short amounts of time before he got super-decripit.
Zetsus are Madara’s creation, they are clones of Hashirama, they come in all shapes and forms and varying levels sapience, Black Zetsu in particular is a White Zetsu infused with Madara’s will, the main Zetsu was White Zetsu and Black Zetsu fused.
The only Madara extension is Black Zetsu.
All this Zetsu shit is super confusing.
When was the last time Yamato appeared?
I feel like I need to go back and reread the last few years of the manga or something; I'm confused as fuck
He brought back every fucking character except the best one in the series. Maybe it's just better this way, at least his death doesn't feel as lame...
>When was the last time Yamato appeared?
The start of the war; he was shown unconscious in that giant lotus flower.
>implying Jiraiya isn't foot
Pretty sure we saw his ear a couple of chapters ago.
A giant plot macguffin, that's what. Need some storm troopers? Zetsu. Need an assassin? Zetsu. Need a way to fight two of the most popular characters at the same time? Black Zetsu.
C'mon.... This fucker, while an interesting concept with some cool things going on around him, is just absolutely terrible. Then again... This is Naruto we're talking about...
How much better would Naruto be if it was about Foot Ninjas instead?
>422 posts and 34 image replies omitted.
>only two posts mention dubs
hold the phone. i thought odas wife WAS the voice of nami?
The zetsu are just goombas Madara made so he could have an army of canon fodder. When he needed a minion that serves a different purpose, he modified one (like the black one being his messenger and the spiral one being his prosthetic legs).
Most of Kabuto's strength came from Orochimaru's cells, which have been taken back. Kabuto is a scrub.
Moot and Nigga Mod are watching Naruto threads now, have you missed the time Moot trolled /a/ with Naruito or are you this new?
>/a/ is growing up
>I think the only true climax that can be had is that if Naruto straight dies at the end.
Sorry if this is a spoiler, but Naruto is going to die and be resurrected. Kishimoto's pushing way too hard on the biblical symbolism, so you can be certain it's coming.
>who is the other Zetsu we've been seeing for the majority of the post-timeskip series
And why did the other zetsu refer to him as the "original"?
Remember, shortly after sasuke escaped. Or did I read a shitty translation back then?
I'll be looking for the scan.
It's not like he suddenly lost Sage mode, body liquification, fast healing, or any of the other abilities he had that didn't come from Orochimaru.
what biblical symbolism? Besides generic messiah symbolism (which isn't exclusive to the Bible...)
Yeah, Sasuke escaped and one of the other Zetsu mentioned something about him killing their original. Which is odd, because I don't remember seeing Sasuke ever killing a Zetsu.
You missed the whole thing about the forbidden fruit and the Eve-like mother of all ninja who are the fruit?
The "original" is the half-face White Zetsu. Sasuke killed him. However, he's shown the ability to make complete, independent clones of himself.
>You missed the whole thing about the forbidden fruit and the Eve-like mother of all ninja who are the fruit?
stand by for time-traveling Orochimaru being behind absolutely everything as the snake who tempted Kaguya-hime and the one who saved Madara in the VOTE.
>>gains them back by Sakura stabbing him with a magic Kunai
why does everyone ignore Ino if she is the most beautiful of them all and has one of the best jutsus?
yeah I guess I did because I don't remember that at all
I was thinking it was more influenced by Norse mythology, the whole god tree thing and all that
Shit personality like every girl in Naruto
Yggdrasil didn't have a forbidden fruit.
Found it. At long last.
It's in that chapter that ends on sasuke removing the bandages on his (actually Itachi's) eyes.
I thought this would have some kind of repercussion, like preventing further production of white zetsus, but we didn't hear of it.
also whats with the jutsu that the first gave sasuke he didnt use it yet.
also where is yamato i havent seen him in a couple of years... didnt kabuto or tobi kidnap him or something...
>I thought this would have some kind of repercussion, like preventing further production of white zetsus, but we didn't hear of it.
Raikage killed White Zetsu first and it didn't matter then, either.
That's the one, but were we actually shown him killing the original?
Where did Sai go?
He got rekt as soon as Madara became human.
>I don't even like Sasuke
Sure you don't.
Only one of his faggot fans would be so blind as to place a homicidal psycho who abandons and betrays people at the drop of a hat could be so fucking stupid as to place Sasuke in charge of anything.
all the fox cloaks they have are comming from the 4th
The Leaf Village is a pretty sick place, now that I think about it
>yfw Sasuke is right
Eh, he was just a kid then, cut him some slack.
He's certainly going to be better at the political side than Naruto.
He wasn't a kid at the Kage meetup.
The foot belongs to buggy d clown.
He came to put an end to this shit
if you wanted this scenario then madara could have used rinnegan to bring him back. this is how madara died the first time, and you thought it was old age, that nin unlocked that stuff right before he died... why wouldnt he use it lol.
1st time he used ems susano
>Everyone is basically bitching about how terrible it is and breaking down every little problem it has. Enjoying the train wreck.
All that crap that discussing nardo would destroy /a/ because of emo kids was bullshit.
Okay, skimming the wiki, here's what the deal with the Zetsus seem to be:
There are only two, the white and spiral one. Madara dumped half of himself into the white one and it turned into the black/white zetsu.
Then it starts to get confusing, because half of the zetsu clones are junk that White Zetsu made as canon fodder, while the other half were made in the same way as the original two, so are much stronger. I kind of got lost around this point.
nah, the Naruto fanbase is shit. Most of them have been scared away though
also this shit is ending soon, I imagine there'll be a temporary increase in threads after it's finished and then largely disappear proper.
Strange to think Naruto and Bleach are drawing to a close. I never really expected it to ever happen.
Just watched the episode and I can literally see Kishi trying this. Probably even telling his assistants to throw in ideas
>Guy turns out to be ninja death god the grim reaper
>is actually Ichigo from Bleach who helps sasuke move on and die
>Naruto also dies
>Naruto's final thoughts
>There are some pretty bad people in the world
>But there are also great heroes like me
>And even we have trouble sometimes
>And even heroes fail
White Zetsu: Created from Hashirama's cells
Black Zetsu: Created from White Zetsu clone, injected with Madara's will
Spiral Zetsu: Made from Hashirama's cells to be used as an armor and for restoration
White Zetsu army first half: Created from Hashirama's cells and living clone of Hashirama
Second half of White Zetsu army: Created from Hashirama's cells and living clone of Hashirama, strengthened by putting Yamato into Hashirama's living clone.
Most Narutards have either grown up or moved onto other things over the years. They're still around to some extent, but /a/ still thinks that anime conventions are still full of people in Akatsuki cloaks.
I think a good portion of Naruto's readers is composed of 20 something people that have grown with the series and, if they are not mentally challenged, they can see how terrible it has become and all the problems it has but just read it out of tradition/nostalgia/completionism.
Jiraiya warned him...
So, uh, why DIDN'T Sasuke just take the rods out of Hashirama's back so he could fight again?
And how exactly did Madara counter the 2nd's teleportation stab?
I always figured the end of the manga would be Naruto fighting Sasuke and using that jutsu would make both of them unable to fight.
>You are now aware sasuke threw his favorite pet rock at hinata so he could fuck nurutu later
With me it's nostalgia and the tendency to put things into perspective. I also think shonen and bad-but-entertaining series have a charm.
They addressed that in the manga. Pay attention.
Speaking of "that jutsu," when is he going to use this?
What jutsu is he talking about? I don't remember this page at all.
I didn't remember the art being that bland.
I wonder if he ever uses that jutsu, makes kage bunshins and fucks himself
Wait use what?
Would it kill him to atleast detail hair?
Sakura is cute in that middle panel.
I like sakura.
>So, uh, why DIDN'T Sasuke just take the rods out of Hashirama's back so he could fight again?
It was too dangerous to touch them. Naruto was snared by Obito's lesser binding rods.
Though Sasuke could have just Susano'o-smashed Hashirama completely.
>And how exactly did Madara counter the 2nd's teleportation stab?
He's just that good.
Why do they keep forgetting these guys can move underground?
The art was peak bland at the start of part 2. Also, Kishimoto hadn't settled into the new designs yet.
Minato doesn't know much about Zetsu.
I don't think taking the rods out would have helped, all of the resurrected units lot their regeneration. I can't remember why.
It's just after he used shuriken on that tentacle guy. It cuts up all the chakra veins between the target's cells and and does similar to the user. That's why he only uses it in sage mode and kyubi mode.
After the timeskip, Jiraiya told him not to use a certain type of jutsu.
Perhaps it's something incredibly powerful but highly dangerous to use.
But wasn't jiraiya out getting killed by pain while naruto was fighting kakuzu?
I'm calling Kabuto. Only guy who makes sense.
I remember it being speculated a lot about back in the day, but it was 400 chapters ago. At this point, I think most people just assume that he was either talking about the Bijuu bomb or Kishimoto just forgot.
That's the Rasenshuriken.
You know, it used to damage his arm.
This was long before the Rasenshiriken. It was right after the timeskip.
They figured something bad would happen to anyone who comes in contact with the rods. The real question is why Sasuke didn't just destroy the Edo Tensei of the 1st and 2nd Hokage -- they would have reanimated completely restored.
And Madara countered the 2nd by simply being faster. He was immediately aware that he teleported behind him and in the time it would have taken for his kunai to stab Madara, Madara turned around and countered it. Same reason Sasuke failed to get the jump on him from behind, Madara is faster than god now.
It's using the Kyuubi's chakra. In other words, losing control and letting it take over.
Things naruto learned in the two year timeskip:
1) Oodama rasengan, used precisely once against an enemy that was being held in place
No, that was later, in fact, that could have been the reason why he was in Konoha, to tell the hokage that he's on a suicide mission.
Yes, we know, it's old news by now.
It's the Vague Foreshadowing no jutsu. It is a technique used by many weekly magazine authors.
He learned the Oodama rasengan after the timeskip in a week, dingus.
He learned 4-tailed Kyuubi mode.
Losing control over and "not using a jutsu" has a distinct difference.
It's not the Kyuubi so you can fuck off.
>He learned how to go berserk and lose control because the seal was getting weaker
Naruto is a terrible series however having read 600+ chapters to date I'm not pulling out
Didn't we get that whole Naruto is a bad guy shit in one of the movies?
>It's just after he used shuriken on that tentacle guy.
Nope, it's at the beginning of part 2 when naruto goes to suna to save gaara.
refer to >>101973111
It doesn't necessarily have to be a jutsu like we all know it with hand signs and what not. Kyuubi mode is still a technique in Naruto's arsenal.
I just checked. Yeah, it's Kakashi who warns about Rasen Shuriken. My mistake.
Yes, the 9th movie was set in the Mirror Universe where Tobi was actually Naruto, not Obito. Crazy shit.
that was the rasenshuriken you fucking retard
If Naruto movies weren't all terrible, I'd be tempted to check that out. The concept sounds amazing.
he's only been able to use it voluntarily in like the last 50 chapters or so
He became more proficient with clones in general.
He became less of a manlet and became slightly taller than Sakura
That one is actually kinda fun, if only for the general sorta thing "alternate universe" generally brings to a story.
Did it feature slutty Hinata?
Only worthwhile scene.
also Shy, conservatively-dressed Ino
and Sakura suddenly has parents
Only worthwhile scene.
We know Jiraiya weakened Naruto's seal (after Orochimaru strenghtened it in the forest of death) with the intention of him using it to his likening. I'm sure Jiraiya thaught Naruto something about activating Kyuubi mode. Not deeming Naruto ready to use it, he forbade him from using it.
Why is Ino such best girl?
Yes. All characters' personalities are switched.
Ino's the shy girl…
I prefer Deidara myself
It's like Trap Hino with 4 mouths
>Sakura suddenly has NO parents
and naruto suddenly has.
That was referring to his early kyuubi mode when it was still self-destructive.
I actually liked Blood Prison.
Also sasuke is a smooth, charming romeo-esque ladies man who tries to get his dick as wet as possible.
yeah, someone posted a screen of Lee actually getting a fight in the war in the anime too.
The anime is probably doing this arc better, the one cool thing that could come out of the idea behind this arc was that some old characters could return. Though so far all the old characters have gotten wrecked pretty much instantly, I think fucking Kimimaro of all people was defeated off-page or something. I assume the anime padded out bits like that.
Why is it called a war if it's everyone vs literally 1 person.
How new are you?
This is a Naruto thread on /a/, the whole world is fucked.
Pretty new, do I get a welcome party?
It's a war against one guy and his legions of canon fodder. Well, it was before Madara took over, anyway.
>tfw no Hinata to cuddle with
It's funny, the big three all had a war arc going on around at one point like it was all the rage (with naruto's war arc still continuing to this day).
Naruto's 4th ninja war, Bleach's Aizen's invasion, One Piece's Paramount war.
Only in One Piece it felt like there was a war going on. In Naruto they tried to make it look like a war at the beginning, but 99.99% procent of all participants were fodder. Every guy in the Paramount war was actually skilled. It's strange to call Aizen's invasion a war, since it only involved less than 30 people and every single battle was 1 vs. 1.
Here's Shino fighting that guy from his clan who was one of Danzo's two bodyguards (I think Tobi killed him before?)
Somehow Naruto is even dumber in fillers than he is in the source material.
The war was the most boring part of One Piece so far though (besides it's conclusion, obviously)
Doujins quell the pain.
Most of those are shit.
It's an inside joke, go here for more details
I can count the the number of good Naruto doujins on one hand
There are quite a lot of them. There must be some hidden gems...
I can count the number of good Naruto doujins on no hands.
I don't know why people like that Naruho-do garbage, I just want naruto doujins that are drawn in the same style as the source material and do not have every girl as an absurd mega titcow
So, how will Naruto end?
>I just want naruto doujins that are drawn in the same style as the source material and do not have every girl as an absurd mega titcow
I saw some douins from some guys named Crimson Comics or something years ago. They were retty faithful to the original art (altough improved) and respected proportions
why does Shino even care about Naruto that much
They've only talked about two or three times together in the entire series due to Shino never being around for some reason
i think there might still be a legit way to defeat madara
since he is now about to become a god, should he face a fate similar to the first gods that created chakra? i feel like there is something written about it in the chapters where they explain the origin of the world, god tree and all that
I guess it depends whether you count Ninja Dependence as only a single one or not.
I swear to god that I forgot he existed.
There's an ongoing joke in the anime where Shino seems to think of Naruto as a close friend and Naruto rarely even remembers his name and finds him creepy.
It's his little running gag. He's easily forgotten like his father. Naruto just happens to forget him the most.
Also he's still butthurt about not being able to help save Sasuke when he was barreling.
>I think fucking Kimimaro of all people was defeated off-page or something. I assume the anime padded out bits like that.
I was hoping they'd do an episode were Juugo and Suigetsu come across him before they crash into the cave where Sasuke is, but unfortunately they didn't. Would've been the perfect time to do it, too.
>Edo Tensei was a literary blasphemy that destroyed Naruto but at least it could be good for emotional stuff and fan service.
>Kishi forgets Kimimaro and Mangetsu for Jugo and Suigetsu
It's like he's not trying anymore.
A good non porn doujin with lots of hinata cuteness is naruhina chronicles by mattwilson83 on da.
>absurd mega titcow
Karakishi's doujins are ridiculous as well.
These were indeed quite good, those from nekomataya are good as well.
The one with baby hinata was fucking sick.
