Naruto 500 Breakdown: The big five-oh-oh! *can’t think of any Pickles-esque long title that makes no sense and serves no purpose other than to take up sidebar space and make WordPress mighty unhappy*
Hello and welcome to this grand fest! What fest, you ask? Silly goose! The big Naruto chapter 500 celebration ceremony extravaganza extraordinaire, of course! Your friendly neighborhood Deathcon had the idea of doing a rather ‘special’ breakdown this time ’round in tribute to that. So I said to her “Hush, woman, get your ass back in that kitchen!” Special note to the guys out there: if you’re going to go medieval on a lady with a name like Death…don’t.
*noodles away at new prosthetic limbs* ;____;
500 chapters…(minus the pilot, Golden Weeks, the occasional bundle of joy, and self-implemented holidays -___-) that’s about 3,500 days of the Naruto manga: roughly ten years. That’s almost how long in advance you have to book Jonas Brothers tickets these days.
Strange distant angry voice: “WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT THE JONAS BROTHERS?!!!!
*runs away screaming with his hands in the air*
*Whips out her rocket launcher, aims and hits Pickles as he runs away* NEVER MENTION THE JOBROS IN MY PRESENCE AGAIN!!!!
They trigger my upchuck and murderous rage reflexes….*ducks behind the blast proof glass as the rocket blows Pickles into relish*….bwahahahahahahaha *grabs the prosthetic arms and awaits the retaliation*
Anywho, MzMandi here with my portion of this awesomeness…..
So, Kushina was the Jinchuuriki before Naruto…damn. Imagine her PMS! I wouldn’t wanna be Minato during that time of the month. Say one wrong word and she’s going six tails on your ass >.<
Honestly, it’s probably not such a good idea to use women as Jinchuuriki, I mean we are emotionally unstable at times and tend to make bad decisions when the hormones are raging….If I had the 9 tails there would be a lot less annoying people around me. *Looks at Tenrai eying her chocolate cheesecake* Back off boy-o!
Ehem, all joking aside…I’m all for equality and all that, but to use a female for a Jinchuuriki is just not a good idea. I mean, look at what happened with Kushina. The seal weakened when she was giving birth, and someone stole it. If a man had been holding the 9 tails, the likelihood of that happening would have been slim. I’m not saying it’s her fault, I just don’t think a woman holding the tailed beasts is such a hot idea.
Well that’s my say on this chapter, sorry it was so random and off topic.
*Super casually walks in*
Super: “You all like my Sasuke pic?” 😉
*Super explodes in a burst of flames and Mandi puts away her rocket launcher* X_X
Mandi: “You looked like a Jonas Brother…” >_>
YOSH!!! Well, now that I’m dead I can give my opinion on this chapter without fear of retribution. 😛 I thought this was a great and nicely informative chapter. Many people were right when they said Madara would take advantage of Kushina’s pregnancy to control the 9 tails. This chapter showed exactly how it was done. Also, it was confirmed, or perhaps reiterated, Naruto had the whiskers on his face before the Kyubi was sealed inside of him. Giving more fuel to the fire of Naruto being part Kyubi and the reason for his naturally large chakra capacity. Not part Kyubi because the Kyubi was sealed into him, but part Kyubi because Kushina’s womb mixed with the Kyubi’s chakra perhaps. Also, we now know Naruto was not the first person born to a Jinchuuriki because Mito also gave birth while possesing the 9 tails. Makes me wonder if there was anything special about Hashirama’s and Mito’s son or daughter…
Anyway, the most exciting part for this chapter for me was the prospect of Madara possibly revealing his identity soon. It really caught me off guard but I was happily surprised. I don’t believe he’ll reveal himself in front of Minato because he sure had no clue who it was when he talked with Naruto. Though, he had the appearance of the rock n’ roll Uchiha star of 16 years the face should be the same and Minato would have told Naruto if the “masked man” had revealed his face. If Madara revelas himself it’ll put to rest many theories or confirm them. Finally enlightening us on who is the man behind the Moon’s Eye Plan. Yeah, remember that thing? The only thing we can do is wait and debate. 😉
*floats off before someone calls the Ghostbusters*
*Starts to play epic music for the 500th breakdown celebrations.*
*Jumps off inexplicably placed diving board and into center stage.*
*Lands in an epic, earth shattering, belly flop.* X__X
*Get’s up after being comatose for 30 minutes and points a finger angrily at Pickles.*
Tenrai: You jerk! Were supposed to catch me!!!!
Pickles: Really? Oh, I thought you were just being exceptionally emo today. And besides, it’s hard to catch anything with these short, stubby prosthetic arms. <_<
Tenrai: And here I thought he loved me. *Gasp.* But no-one is supposed to know about that, so pretend you didn’t hear it!!! O__O!
*Notices eerie silence and awkward stares from audience.*
Ahem!!! So, anyway, if I’m one of the big five, does that mean I get to be a lion? I mean, they do get to eat the most people. ^ ^
*Looks over towards Pickles and licks teeth.* Meow! *Cough!* I mean… grrr… <_<
Omg… Somehow I don’t think this is helping me at all. Maybe it’s time I just got on with the show. T__T
Anyway, weirdness aside *hears laughing*, I think this chapter was really quite interesting. We got to learn a lot about Naruto’s heritage both in the Uzumaki clan and in regards to the night of his birth as well. For those who had their suspicions about Naruto having Senju blood in him, those theories have now been laid delightfully to rest, seeing as how we know now that the Uzumaki are distant blood relatives of the Senju.
This also explains why Madara saw Hashirama and the fires of the Senju in Naruto as well.
But more importantly, Naruto is given something he really has needed for a long time. A lesson in love. When Kushina explained how a vessel must be filled with love, before it can contain the beast of hatred that is the Kyuubi, I think it had a great impact. I believe that Naruto has never really understood the concept of love, mostly because he has never openly received it before. In fact, the first time anyone had ever said those three all important words, it was during the battle with Pein when Hinata tried to protect him.
Pickles: *makes mental note to assassinate Hinata, new rival in love* >_>
The only other time he has heard it was from his own mother just a few moments ago.
I think the reason he could never return those feelings, was because it was something he was afraid of. I think in a way, Naruto saw himself as a monster and maybe, deep down inside, he felt he didn’t deserve happiness or that he would hurt those close to him. When Kushina mentioned that even a Jinchuuriki could be happy and loved, I think that may have finally been the answer he needed all this time. Maybe now he can face those feelings without fear.
*Hears squeaking from prosthetic limbs coming from the bushes.*
*Looks behind back, only to see Pickles disappearing into the shadows.*
Love can also be very scary, and so can stalkers. <_<
Remember kids, if they don’t yell surprise… you will be traumatized for life. T__T
*Super jumps out from behind corner and raises both hands in the air.*
Supertrek89: COME TO ME MY JUNGLE FRIENDS!!!!
*Runs up to super and eats him and then runs back into the bushes again.*
Supertrek89: X__x *Fatality*
*Pickles spots Deathcon from a distance*
*tries to run, but finds self in an endless loop going nowhere*
Deathcon: No…it’s the new MakeHimSuffer 5000 treadmill. Comes with a complementary 7-foot matching whip
Pickles: No…no! You couldn’t…
Deathcon: Yes…I could. *snickers* I am going to make you do your section of the breakdown and burn calories at the same time…
Pickles: You evi-
Deathcon: *whips* Run, b*tch!! MUAAHAHAHAHA!!!
I thought chapter 500 was great. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much in the way of action going by the last chapter’s ending.
More and more light is thrown on the more obscured fields of the manga including the Uzumaki clan and especially Naruto’s past: where everything began; that being the bit I love most. It’s also pretty cool to see so much screen time on Naruto’s parents who had been completely in the dark up until now.
Deathcon: Minato isn’t in the dark! He’s sexy!!
Yes ma’am. ;____;
I get the feeling this flashback will bring out many more unspoken or dark truths of things established and unestablished.
There is a reason I’m especially fond of the new development on the events prior to and immediately following Naruto’s birth. Frankly speaking, for the much larger portion of the entire manga, we’d known hardly more about Naruto than his being a Jinchuuriki, and the fact that you only touch his ramen if you have a death wish. Since, we have only been told the story in bits and pieces: some of that even false.
So then, what is the whole story behind this entire manga? Ah, there’s the million-dollar question. And if you stay tuned long enough, you just might make bank. 😉

Now for this week’s material. Naruto’s first words…what will they be? *snickers*
Deathcon: I’m done with you, you can go now. *puts away whip* *evil laugh*
*Pickles rubs butt as if it hurts*
Little does Con know that his behind is also prosthetic so it knows no pain. His legs are prosthetic too, so they know no fatigue.
Moral of the story: Brains > Deathcon4
Tell me your own politik.
