Hello and welcome, all and one, to this here week’s breakdown! I say breakdown, but this really will be more of a simple, brief overview of the last chapter (a broken down breakdown) since we’re already nearing the release of the next. That’s roundabout speak for: “This breakdown is effing late!” Partly because Manga Stream’s scanlation was a little behind on schedule; partly because this summer has me feeling especially laggard nowadays. Something about the blazing heat and humidity that makes you want to not want to. But toss be some of that chocolaty, creamy goodness of an Oreo, and I’m right back in it like Hugh Hefner after 17 Viagras.
This chapter featured what I would call awesomeness on a platter of scanlated ink and paper. Normally, a chapter is delivered and it has its moments: perhaps not as many as some would like. This one felt like one big moment. Kind of like one gigantic Twix. The information kept poring, the action was gripping, and the badassery was out of this world.
Oh, and the best part? This is only the beginning.
This flashback constitutes almost everything you would want in one. It isn’t draggy so that you have to force yourself to read through its pages and in the end find that no real progress has been made from start to ending. In like manner, it isn’t too zippy so that it ends up being all over the place and you’re able to grasp zilch.
And not just with regards speed, there is also that balance in content between its ability to be informative and also offer an acceptable measure of excitement. The purpose of many a flashback is to detail the what’s what on who’s who and all that jibber-jabber. Naturally, there’s nothing fun about learning, so it becomes hard to derive any excitement; especially when what you see on your test paper are two D’s and and F…in that case, it becomes a bit harder…but also a little more exciting. Ok, that’s just wrong >_>…What I’m trying to say here is that this flashback is fun and educative at the same time…sheesh. <_< I can already see from the comment section a lot of people just eating up this new intel on the middle child, Tobirama.
Additionally, there’s also that ironic novelty afforded by our witnessing present-day characters as they once were in the times past. It’s always cool to see how much change…or lack thereof has occurred since. >_>
And, of course, there’s Minato. How could we forget? The baddest badass this side of the series. As we begin to witness more and more the full extent of his ability, I think it becomes clearer why he became so renowned and revered throughout the manga. Obviously, he has shown quite a few innovative incorporations of his Hiraishin in his fighting style as opposed to poofing from one knife to the next like some retarded Shinigami aimlessly performing multiple flash steps around some guy who uses pretty pink flowers as weapons.
Although if that were all there was to it, it would still be awesome in its own right. I mean, it’s Minato for Christ’s sake. He could be caught on film passing excretal on little children and still look cool doing it. Just remind me not to miss the Dave Cheppelle spoof on it.
Seeing as his killer moves have so far been the only thing that have enabled a person land a hit on Tobi, there has been some speculation as to whether Naruto may pick it up and add it to his ever-growing arsenal as per being his son and all. Still, it’s all yet to be proven or otherwise.
One thing this chapter does disprove, though, is the Tobi/Obito theory. There, I said it.
Being the ever-vehement anti-Tobi/Obito I am, to me, if we saw Tobi eating Snickers, I’d say the theory is disqualified because “Obito is allergic to nuts.” But this one actually makes close to a shred of sense.
Throughout the manga, you will notice that there is a clear grade system regarding height. And although not always biologically accurate, it is one of the few methods used in clearly differentiating between and among age grades in manga where there is minimal facial distinction. As such, members of a particular age group are always around the same height, but never taller than those of a higher group or shorter than those of a lower.
This becomes especially evident in four-man-cell group photos. The three rookies share an almost exactly identical height, whereas the jonin (who usually is passed the growth stage) towers over them regardless of how old they become, until they reach their sensei’s age group. At the same time, almost all of these teachers also share almost the same height, as is also displayed in the hyperlinked picture.
In short, save for one or two extreme cases such as the present Tsuchikage, growth rate and general height amongst members of an age group is the same throughout the manga.
Tobi in the last chapter is clearly shown to be the same height as Minato. If it were Obito, who at the time could be no more than 16 years old, he would be shorter; even more so than Naruto is shown to be when compared with his father inside of his psyche.
And if that isn’t enough, the voice of a teeny tween won’t by any chance go unnoticed by Minato.
In conclusion, Obito is dead and buried…now leave him be! >_>
Well, whether or not you choose to take to heart me few words, tis your beez wax. But now that you’ve seen my disarrayed thoughts, it’s about time I headed out.
Here’s to more awesomeness!
And although it will be difficult to keep the pace up after what has been, after all, a frantic start, I’m sure Kishi can pull something decent out of his crack.
