Naruto Chapter 564 Breakdown: Mysterious villains are mysterious…
So, we’ve learned quite a few interesting facts in this last chapter now, haven’t we?
I mean, the evidence isn’t glaringly obvious, but if you take a closer look, you’ll notice a few things about each of the subjects involved in this latest chapter that you may not have realized before. So, today, I will be your belated guide as we journey into the strange, the ugly and the sometimes terrifying realm of the human mind. @___@
Or at least, that would be the case if half of the subjects we were investigating where, at the very least, human. <_<
But, enough of my mindless ramblings in an attempt to buy time and make my post appear longer than it actually is. Let’s start with subject number one!
You can tell from the image above, that this was definitely a forced entry. And for all of you who are wondering, no, we did not enter from behind. It was too dark and we didn’t have any flashlights on us at the time. <_<
In any case, I would like to take a moment to discuss subject number 1. I would call him by his real name, but to be quite frank, I have no idea what it is, and apparently, neither does he. So for now, we will simply refer to him as Tobi. You see, most people would say that Tobi suffers from multiple personality disorder, or that he is bipolar. Some blame that for the reason he is so confused, or why he has sudden mood swings, but I have discovered the truth behind the matter.
You see, Tobi – as he likes to call himself, aside from Madara – is really just an introvert who suffers from a case of low self esteem. His peers at school used to bully him and always called him a nobody, and so he eventually began to believe their words as being the truth. Evidence supporting this hypothesis can be seen bellow in a take from our interview with him yesterday morning.
In the end, Tobi just wanted a hug, but no-one wanted to hug someone whose arms kept falling off all the time. It was just totally freaky. However, to be completely fair, in the end, all I can say is that nobody can tell a nobody that nobody loves them. After all, in order to not love someone, you have to know that they exist in the first place. @__@
Unfortunately, during the interview, when asked if we could see who was really behind the mask, Tobi refused our request and chose to avoid any further comment on the matter, leaving his aesthetics a mystery. One of our other subjects tried to forcefully remove the mask with a headbutt, but he failed to realize that a headbutt involved hitting a person on their head with your own, and not sticking your head up their…
Moving along, our next subject was a bit of a more difficult case to study. It may have had something to with the fact that his mind had already previously been crowded to the point of disrepair…
And so we have subject number two, who goes by the name of Naruto. Now, Naruto had a difficult childhood growing up, mostly because so many people, monsters, birds and toads were crammed into his mind at a young age, that his own brain had little time to develop properly, which resulted in the substantially lacking intelligence levels we’ve observed in him today.
During our interview with Naruto, we also noticed that aside from his startling lack of higher level brain function, he and subject number 1, Tobi, were also not getting along very well at all. Tobi thought Naruto was a bit immature and didn’t like the fact that he kept trying to remove his mask, and Naruto simply just didn’t think at all. It was a complete clash of personalities.
What started as a small feud soon escalated into a massive battle, where Tobi swore to take over the world by staring at the moon for 24 hours – which proved difficult because it kept setting every 12 hours – while Naruto simply continued to insist on taking off Tobi’s mask. Eventually, a few guys with tails and 50 cent got involved, but none of this seemed to bother subject number 3, who was far too absorbed in his own hateful ideas of hatred to be bothered with anything else that was happening.
As we mentioned before, our third subject – Kyuubi – has had some serious anger issues for as long as he can remember. Everyone keeps asking why he’s so cranky, but after a brief investigation, the answer became painfully obvious.
I mean, I would also be pretty cranky if I had nine bushy tails getting in the way every time I tried to take a poop. Imagine the dingleberries! Such a horror is not for the faint of heart, that much is certain, and so Kyuubi spent a large part of his early life learning what we now refer to as the art of ‘proper poopy posture’, a notion that would scar him for many years to come. His anger levels weren’t helped by the fact that he was always portrayed as a female in every fanfic ever to grace his presence – as he reluctantly revealed to us in our interview – but that is a matter still subject to further investigation.
Eventually, Kyuubi met subject number 2, Naruto, under some rather exceptional circumstances (being sealed inside the boy along with many of the other local wildlife). The two had a rough relationship at the start – and no, I don’t mean THAT kind of rough – but they eventually began to tolerate one another. There was a stark turning point when Naruto said that having a tailed beast inside him wasn’t so bad, so we have reason to believe that their differences will be resolved soon enough, but that wasn’t the only connection they made of late.
And so that concludes our journey into the human (and other monster’s) mind. I hope you found the experience as nauseatingly confusing as I did. It would only be fair. <_<
In any case, as good as this chapter of self discovery was, hopefully next week we will see more battle and less talk. I am also hoping to see more with regards to the battle between the five Kage and Madara, and hopefully we’ll also see the moment where Naruto will FINALLY remove Tobi’s mask and reveals who he is.
Only time can tell what will transpire next.
There’s also the matter of the Jinchuuriki and how they retained their powers even after having their bijuu extracted, but Pein0Avenue put it best when he mentioned that Madara could have simply given them some of their power back from Gedo Mazo. There isn’t much I can add to that.
All in all, there’s not much that can be said other than that this battle with Tobi got off to a good start, but there are still too many questions that need answering, and so we are left wanting more. For now, here is last week’s bubbliton contest winner.
Well done to Floatingdreamer for his winning entry.
Actually, I was scrolling down through all the comments, trying to go through all of the entries to find a suitable winner, but then I hit the Tobi=*insert name here* debates and the veeeeeeeeeery long comments that went with them. Then I became lost, scared and confused. It was a traumatic experience. So sorry if I missed your entry between the endless walls of text. It’s just one of those things.
This week, because I couldn’t seem to find an appropriate Bubbliton screen, we’ll just have a debate.
Well, this should be an interesting debate indeed. Remember, great debates count more than poll votes, so if you want your favorite to win, get involved!
Well, that’s it from me. I hope you enjoyed the breakdown.
See you in the comments! ^ ^
