Naruto 505 Breakdown: Hater senses…tingling! I know you’re here somewhere, Kanye West!! Last week’s matchmaking debate results inclusive. *Kirby dance* Because nothing is late when you’re dancing like a pink ball with eyes and shoes.
*bursts through a million tangled wires and data transmission circuits and into the internet*
*falls through misplaced link and gets pwned by a trojan*
Salute, signore e signori! My Italian is rudimentary, to say the most, but I get around Assassin’s Creed. 😉
I come bearing gifts: gifts of poorly worded sentences and criminally malicious intent. Don’t it just sound dainty?
Tonight, my binary friends,
we dine in hell I’ll be taking you on a routine tour through the magnificent and sometimes wacko world known commonly as the Narutoverse.
We will come across an angry slug, an angry pig, an angry dog, and an angry schizo.
I hope you brought your anti-Sakura spray. >_>
This one chapter was a message; albeit one wrapped in an envelope of the finest gourmet Swiss chocolate served with edible gold and Norcian black truffles.
It was a simple message in that it signaled to us all a distinct indication of the aftereffects of the happenings preceding it. And while, on its own, it didn’t exactly mark an event of any particular significance, it was presented in such a way that made it all too delicious to devour.
Discounting the splash, the first three pages of the chapter were dedicated to spotlighting the first of two such “aftereffects” stated above, that being Naruto’s new-found resolve and reaffirmed purpose. No doubt this was brought about by the moral boost supplied by his mama.
Sometimes, it just takes someone’s pat on the back to say “Hey, you’re not doing so badly.” A nice little pep talk will also work to similar effect in restoring enthusiasm and will. And when Naruto once again, proudly declares to himself his dreams and ambitions, you know mommy’s work here is done.
It was all that he needed, really: a pick-me-up. I mean there’s only so much a kid can take until he starts putting on make-up and dyes his hair black and purple. And that’s when he starts Finding Nemo…without the N…>_>
Now, the second “aftereffect” is a bit more interesting.
This one is brought about courtesy of the most prominent feature of the past few chapters, and that, as you may have guessed (aren’t you a genius) is Naruto’s taking over the Kyuubi.
There has been some measure of uncertainty as to what precise effects this would have on Naruto, and this chapter aimed at clearing the air a bit. This, of course, was its primary objective, and you don’t need to have read the title to deduce that much.
The question now is: what the hell is with this new form?
I’m more than positive we all remember this. It was only a few chapters ago when we first witnessed the Super-Saiyan-over-9000 (with killer tats) look for the first time, and I must say, I most certainly wasn’t expecting it back so soon. Nevertheless, it does still look coolbeans to the max. I probably will never get tired of Naruto being aflame with pure, undiluted, yellow awesomeness.
Still, that does little to suppress the confusion that instantly sets in.
Why the frack doesn’t he look like a pissed off mother fox that has just lost her young cub (to prostitution)?
With the exception of the key extending through the right arm, this form looks exactly like the one we saw after Naruto had successfully pwned Foxy.
Obviously, it’s a complete far cry from what we would have come to expect. Even Bee, who went through the exact same method to gain control of his beast doesn’t take up anything vaguely resembling this. Without a doubt, this must have something to do with this new (Sage of the Six Paths) seal.
In a way, it does add a sense of uniqueness with Naruto, which is always welcome. And it also does help that this form is far more practical for battle than a 40-foot chakra beast, which really is just one massive target to pick at.
Well, whether or not you like it, you best start getting used to Naruto looking like a cross between Goku and Travis Barker, because no matter how much Kyuubi chakra he borrows, it will always look the same. That much, we can tell, since the first time we saw this form, Naruto had just absorbed all of the Kyuubi’s chakra.
Me? I ain’t complaining. Since the Cloak of Pwnsomeness is gone, Naruto could use something more to up his cool factor.
Speaking of the Cloak of Pwnsomeness, many are beginning to wonder if Sage Mode has now effectively become useless in almost all regards.
Now, I believe it isn’t such a stretch to say that Naruto may find a way to somehow integrate this new “Kyuubi” form with his Sage Mode. Remember the Saguubi eyes? Those ones that made Nagato soil his life support system (limited emo edition). That was a clear signal to how these two abilities are compatible in some respect.
Regardless, whether or not Sage Mode is being shoved aside, there is no doubt that the Sage training will forever prove invaluable in its giving Naruto his control and focus. That is something that cannot be taken away.
Before we get ahead of ourselves in talking about more power-ups, let’s first understand this new one.
“A teleport technique and a right-hand smash. But all I saw was a yellow flash.” (Killer Bee — Mangastream)
By a million and one miles, this by far was the best line 80 Cent has ever let out his mouth.
But for now, never mind the badassery and let’s focus on the main issue here.
Can Naruto teleport?
Oh yea, I’ve seen the comment section. Many have been raving over how Naruto can use Hiraishin. Well, I hate to rain on your parade (not really) but this can’t be the case. Apart from the fact of how completely random it would be for Naruto to suddenly pull a Flying Thunder God out his ass, there also is irrefutable fact riding against this assumption.
For one thing, as Madara pointed, the pun with the “yellow flash” is not in reference to Minato’s FTG, but his extreme natural speed.
Again, the technique can only be used with those special markings as Minato demonstrated.
Also, it can’t possibly be an advanced form of the technique which eliminates that one requirement, because Killer Bee described seeing a “yellow flash.” He will only see a yellow flash of light if and only if actual movement takes place. As such, it’s safe to say Naruto traversed very quickly so that all that could be seen was a fleeting blur of yellow, rather than dematerialize at one point and reassemble at the other.
In the end, while it would be cool as hell if Naruto could use FTG, the only real logical sense to be made of this is that Bee used the word “teleport” in the figurative light, suggesting that Naruto moved at such incredible speed, he may well have poofed and un-poofed.
And how could we forget the best part of the whole chapter? MAITOOO GUUUYYY!!!
Oh yea, he’s back, bitches!
I must say, I had always had the feeling that he and Kisame would meet one more time on this island. It seemed like too much of a coincidence that he just happened to be one of the escorts to the same place his destined enemy is at.
So are we looking at the final battle between the two? Maybe KB joins forces to end Jaws? Or will Naruto decide he could use a practice dummy?
Well, what happens next is anyone’s guess. All I can promise is that it’s about to get very wet. >_>
Here’s your material for the week.
You would do well to note that Gai here has already begun a thought process. Your job here is to complete it.
Make it count!
And the obvious winner is…
There simply is no time for a new one, so let’s just discuss the weather.
My apologies for the lateness of this breakdown. There was a slight mix-up somewhere. You can complain if you like, I’ve taken enough flaming boulders to be able to take a hit.
Does that make me an object of hatred?
Well, that’s for you to know and for me not to give a shit about.
Ciao. ^ ^
Tell me your own politik.
