Naruto 503 Breakdown: The day the village stood still. Demotivational poster and official debate (plus last week’s results…oh, wait, there aren’t any) inclusive. Boomshakalaka!
*drops a beat*
I gotta feelin’…that tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a…
Hello, hello, WRA and creepo stalkers who never comment! You are cordially welcome to this week’s Naruto breakdown which is the latest of the three as per usual. This time it’s not my fault, I swear! I’ve been having a blast with the new Divorced Barbie. Yea, so what I have indulgences! This one comes with all Ken’s stuff. >_>
I’m feeling especially chipper tonight, and no, it isn’t what your dirty little mind is probably thinking. I may suddenly freeze mid-sentence and faceplant asleep for a few days, but who the frack cares? Tonight’s the night! Let’s live it up!
Isn’t it lovely? A pleasant image of life in the Uzumaki family. Unfortunately, things never did turn out quite so merry. Smiles exchanged for frowns; laughs exchanged for tears; cold in place of warmth, and hatred for love. I see these sort of portraits, and I can’t help but to wonder about Naruto. What could have been.
The chapter illustrates the miserable events that shook the village at its very center, and turned the life of one newborn completely around. Where many will say for the worse, I happen to think otherwise. We can only imagine how happy a family, minus the involvement of the villain that turned it all to waste. But to every truth, there is a ‘however’. And while Naruto may never know the feeling of a ham sandwich over expired milk, he has learned how to stick it out and developed the physical and mental fortitude to carry on with his head screwed on tight. This is what makes him so powerful. And having been through the pain, there will come the joy: a joy far more gratifying than any other.
The time will come. And until then, we’ll be moving on from the cover page now. >_>
And so comes the all-important question: WTF?!
Not many had spotted it initially, but you can see it now from the picture above. This won’t be the first time it’s happening, either.
Then comes the next question: WTF?!!
First, he pops off his right arm like an angry 11-year-old on an unsuspecting naked doll, then he takes an extra-large-Jawbreaker-size Rasengan to the back and lives long enough for some more bad guy “I’ll be back” monologue. Oh, but not before his left hand goes running back to its rightful place in The Addams Family.
Once again, I ask…WTF?!!!
All this evidence points in one direction, and it becomes apparent that the Masked Man’s body is far from normal. And now the question is: what on earth is he made of?
For me, the first thought that comes to mind is that Masky could actually could be the real Madara. How else could he live for so long if his body weren’t still flesh and blood? I don’t suppose he found the Philosopher’s Stone under his pillow one night. Nah, Kishi wouldn’t take the plotkai approach.
If you catch my drift, you’re probably right now picturing Madara as more like Sasori: a human puppet, but no strings attached. He somehow maintains his being inside a container devoid of the conventional biological human makeup.
And when he and Itachi say he’s just a shell of his former self…it ain’t no figure of speech…
In effect, the man in the mask is probably a
high-tech cyborg that’s powered by Coke and farts from its hands proxy representing the real villain. It may also explain the mask. And figuratively speaking, Tobi as we know him would a ‘mask’ of the true villain.
It isn’t a far cry from Nagato’s technique, minus the Black Rods of Emo, so it may come off as cheap imitation. I mean, it’s not like Kishi has ever spammed the unique abilities of certain clans on other random charac– never mind…
The questions continue to stack and the answer remains hidden. This keeps up and we may have to employ the help of the Oracle.
One more subject illuminated by the chapter is that of Bijuu immortality and how they remain even after their Jinchuuriki dies.
First off, one thing should be gotten clear: Bijuu are simply chakra beasts. They are made entirely of chakra, and there’s also evidence to back that up.
Minato sealed away half of the Kyuubi’s chakra. The Kyuubi is chakra. Effectively, it should become two times smaller, no?
Again, compare other pictures of before the Kyuubi was sealed and afterward. The difference becomes clearer.
I don’t suppose chakra can die. Kill stuff, yea, but not die. >_>
If you think about it, too, The Kyuubi never bleeds. Now if he found himself a smoking hot vixen, I bet he’d be bleeding all kinds…but that’s another story…>_>
There are a few questions called to mind in that case.
- Why did Akatsuki need their Bijuu medium rare and not well done? Well, if the Bijuu ‘died’ there is a time lag before it is ‘reborn’. Seeing as time was of the essense, quite possibly, this would throw a wrench in the plan…the Moon’s Eye Plan, that is. @__@
- Why was the Kyuubi afraid of Naruto dying? The time it takes for a beast to return from its temporary ‘removal’ remains unknown. For all we know, it could take centuries. The Kyuubi possibly would rather take his chances at turning Naruto emo and breaking free than waking up in 3010 to find that Backstreet Boys has broken up…FOREVER! ;_____;
- Why am I using bullet points? Well, they are simple, convenient, cutesy-looking and– why the hell are we talking about this? -__-
Oh, guys, did I forget to mention how awesome this chapter was? Why? For me, the reason is no more than the last seven pages. While it was saddening watching as Konoha shinobi put their lives on the line and lost as they fought valiantly to protect their village and their will, the final scenes easily took the prize as the most heartbreaking.
I can’t bring myself to edit any of the pictures there, and that’s saying a lot.
But, dear reader, keep your sleeves up and Kleenex nearby, because the most depressing is yet to come.
Good job this week, guys! I actually had a hard time choosing the top five, but here they are.
5) It’s a tie! I’m not trying to cop out! >_>
Bubble: WOOAAAAAHHH!! Oh I see Ichiraku’s from here .

“Did he fire six shots, or only five?!!”
Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is Kyuubi, the most powerful Bijuu in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
Uuuh, looks like Baron’s been knocked off the #1 spot.
So who’s the winner?…*drum roll*
Congrats to 会長加賀 Chairman Kaga !
And here’s this week’s material.
I think they’re pointing at YOU. @__@
Here it is: the first in weeks.
No polls this time. All I want to see is BLOOD!
Killing yourself is only a win when you’re emo, and Deidara doesn’t qualify as one, so self-destructo makes it a draw. And if he still misses his target after that, that makes it a fail. >_>
Alright, I’m outta here.
Tell me your own politik.
