Naruto 536 & 567 Double Breakdown
I was looking forward to doing a single breakdown last week before the weekend came along, you know, seeing as how Avatar kindly offered his services into doing three of them completely independently of my direct influence. Trololol. Then over the weekend, the manga randomly decided to be released. Stoopid manga. I would be bitching, but ever since chapter 535 came along with its fresh new perspective on the war from outside of the war, the series has been great for me again. And I could imagine for you guys too; but that’s not my call to make.
The breakdown is about chapters 536 and 37, however. And I’m really not going to take your time tonight, but to be honest, I completely expected what happened in these chapters, not by way of actual content, but in recognizing Kishi will need a few more bridge chapters before getting Naruto to spray some rage sauce all over this war, and then of course is the culminative revisit to NaruSasu and their twisted love-hate relationship. Until then, we can treat ourselves to the diabolism of an ebil old man and his pet heretical demon statue giant humanoid monster, Gedo Madzo.
So? Hit or miss?
Frankly, I’m too tired to really tell or maybe even care, but seeing as Madara is finally out into the fray you could say things are going to get a lot more heated from here on. I guess it’s already beginning to get some more interesting with Madara’s first efforts being to snatch the Crimson Gourd and Amber Purifying Pot from Team Darui containing two sets of the most retarded siblings you might ever come across, namely Beavis x Asshead and the other guy x the floating breasts.
Madara could be restoring his force’s assets, but I happen to think he may have something more in mind. He could be gathering the remaining Kyuubi chakra that has obviously been around as appetizer before the main course being Naruto. It would be interesting to see if he does have a way to recover the portion sealed off with Shiki Fuujin. With all the OP-ness Kishi is giving him, he should be capable of more than warp2win.
Then again, he did mention something about a “substitute.” A while ago, he also mentioned syncing Sasuke with Madzorz. I guess leftover 9-tails would sub quite well and would do the job. The question then is “What job?” And my answer? Do you really wanna know? Do you?
We probably are better off not knowing what this “job” is anyway. It could be something really amazing that you look forward to more than anything else. You know, kind of like Kakashi’s super awesomely epic rampage-ful rampage of epic sauce, source, source engine, etc. It might just be too much to handle, you know…
On an even happier note, I do sort of remember some talk of how awesome 9-tails/8-tails tag team action would be. I guess that something more to look forward to in the chapters to come.
It appears both sides have each lost a proportionally equal amount, none significant on either. But “with nightfall comes the calm before the next storm…” The next part of the war approaches, and I do have much hope for it. It would seem all the fodder is out of the way and we can finally move on to the main event.
I’m gonna get some rest now.
Prospekt, how could I forget?
