Naruto Chapter 594 Breakdown: The mystery of all mysteries!
Awe all, It’s Pein0Avenue here filling in for Tenrai with the Naruto manga breakdown. I believe he will be covering the “One Shot” from this week’s chapter, which seems quite exciting if you take into account where the War Arc is now and definitely got my mouth-watering for the movie to come! Just wish I understood Japanese, then I wouldn’t have to wait as long. :P
If you have yet to read the One Shot please click here.
But let’s get to this weeks chapter. I posted the Video at the beginning as it seems quite inspirational. The speech is by Charli Chaplin in the movie “The Dictator.” While reading this week chapter we gained a better understanding of Tobi’s goals, even if ‘who’ he actually is just seems more confusing than ever and sparked some debates in our comments section, etc.
The chapter finally returns to Naruto’s group. Naruto doesn’t seem as worse for ware here as I thought, so it seems he has regained his chakra very quickly, and with no evidence of Sage Mode being used, I wonder if it’s due to his Uzumaki blood or the Kyuubi’s generating power? If you compare here to here.
It also seems Gedo Moza is the container of the Ten Tail’s Jinchuriki, which to me is even more interesting than Tobi at the moment. It was said that the Sage of the Six Paths sealed the 10 Tail’s body inside the Moon, so if Gedo Moza is the container could it be that it only houses the chakra and not the beast itself… Leading one to think where exactly Gedo Moza came from. Nagato was seemingly the first to summon it when angered, so my question is, what if Gedo Moza is sort of the Sage’s Susanoo only being brought fourth by the strength of both sons and activation of the Rinnegan? If this is the case, I am very curious to know why it was created and if maybe the Sage of the Six Paths meant for the Tailed Beasts to be reformed into a single being and living in his heir. @__@
There is so much we still need to uncover in the manga and the topic on most people’s lips after this particular chapter is, who exactly is Tobi? The Mystery Man that has gone from, “Tobi is a good boy” to “Madara” and since then the predictions have come and gone but I believe the 3 that remain most likely of all are Obito Uchiha, Kagami Uchiha and Shisui Uchiha.
So far the common denominator that most agree on is that Tobi is Uchiha of birth, although I myself would like to see maybe someone outside the blood-lusting Uchiha name. We already have Sasuke as our main antagonist plus Madara waiting around, so besides Orochimaru, all of our main villains are composed mostly of Uchiha, this same clan that only had 3 members alive when part one began (if Tobi is a Uchiha of course).
And for all the excitement of returning to Naruto in the arc, we end up debating mostly about Uchiha, good vs evil etc etc… kinda ironic if you ask me…
My opinion on Tobi is split. I think Kishi is purposefully placing Kakashi and Gai there, and so whether Tobi is Obito or not, he evidently knows the two and pretty well at that. Now this can be attributed to a few things.
1. Tobi is in fact Obito and grew up with Kakashi and co. This would give us a mouth-watering flashback too being able to see Obito grow up and change from the boy who made Kakashi who he is today to the man who wishes to remove all free will to bring peace to the world of conflict.
2. Kishi could be trolling us as Kakashi and Gai are already powerful and famous ninja and that could be how Tobi knows of their past. He seems pretty clued up on most things involving the Hidden Leaf. He could also have used Zetsu to follow and record all the battles especially Kisame vs Gai would help with the “Not good with faces” bit… Though it seems Kishi slipped up and revealed who Tobi really is and his true intention…

I thought it was quite cool to see the Kyuubi (Kurama) swap with Naruto – I can’t seem to call him by his real name because to me he is Kyuubi, just like Nagato will always be Pein to me. Anyway, it allows Kishi to give a lot of information quickly as Kurama can speak directly to everyone and Naruto doesn’t have to relay the message across for him. Also, the change in appearance with the slights in the eyes, etc, reminds me of when Naruto fought Haku, but more tame… @__@
The way Kurama describes the 10 Tails (Why didn’t he get a name too?) if you look at each individual Bijuu and think how some where Water, Lava, Wind etc, it makes more sense once they had been united that this beast did not only have the Chakra of all 9 but also the elemental ability of each. Though this version of the 10 Tails will be a lot weaker than the original with the 8 and 9 Tail’s still having most of their power if not all of it…
Though this brings us to what really spoke to me in this chapter, Tobi’s true goal… an Infinite Tsukyomi that will remove all evil, hate, pain, suffering, love, laughter and everything else that defines individuality. A world where there is no greed and no compassion, where all people will live in a peaceful sleep without suffering. Tobi doesn’t want to be the hero that unites the world or the chosen prophet. All he wants is to remove the cycles and create a world where everyone and everything is united.
Now taking away the part that all good is removed too, I see Tobi differently now. It is not praise he wants. He doesn’t want people to look up to him, respect him or see him as a hero. All he wants is to end all suffering and all pain and he believes this can be achieved by sacrificing all desires and everything that brings evil.
There are some awesome quotes that go something like this:
“There is neither happiness nor misery in this world, there is only a comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience true happiness. You must have felt how it is to die before you can appreciate the enjoyment of life.”
I am not 100% sure where that quote came from but I believe this is where Tobi would like to bring the world, where there is no suffering but by having no suffering their will also be no joy. His objective is flawed but it is still a solution he believes can save the entire Shinobi world and the innocent people caught in the crossfire. Even I thought about it, if you look at the world we live in and think of how much suffering there is, wouldn’t it just be better if all lived in peace rather than some live in happiness while others suffer?
Now as a disclaimer I would like to note that, I usually never agree with Naruto… Dattebayo really didn’t fly with me, his “I am a hard worker” seemed to be thrown out the window when we found out he was a Uzumaki and had a strong bloodline son of the 4th Hokage etc. He just always seems to be too positive, his answer to Nagato about the cycle of hatred was “I will figure something out”, which lead to Nagato killing himself. X___X
But after reading this chapter I realized why Naruto seems to change so many people and even if he doesn’t have the answers, he has something else and that’s hope.
He has hope that life will get better, that despite being placed in this position the world currently resides, in it can still get better and for the first time I truly understood Naruto and his character (or maybe just a little more). Wanting peace in the world by just removing all the bad cannot be the answer, because we as people in the world must believe and hope it will get better and most importantly put our money where our mouths are. Naruto has a dream that isn’t to make the world perfect but just to make the world better. He doesn’t say he will be the greatest Hokage of all time but he will be the one that “beats out” all the previous ones, etc ,which although seemed a bit preachy, is something I can respect and admire in Naruto…
*I think Tenrai will be having a heart attack about now. :P *
And that is how we end this week’s chapter. It seem like after all these “Death Note” style chapters with Orochimaru and his Sasuke going through plot twists and counter plot twist – with some flashbacks – we will finally have some good old fashioned battles with Naruto and Tobi throwing it down. ;)
When was the last full battle by the way? Itachi Kabuto doesn’t count… and Madara is still on going so… @__@ I can’t remember! Though I have a feeling Kishi will jump again. He cannot complete this battle and then return to Madara vs the Kage, as it would seem like a anti climax of sorts unless he just skips the entire battle. For all those thinking “He could never do that it’s too important,” well just think about… Kakashi’s rampage <___<
This weeks bubblition winner is!!
I will give an honorable mention to kevinphoenix, for most entries on a single comment :P Keep it up and soon you will be the winner. The pedomon caption had me sniggering though. So keep working at it and for this week at least you also know the format for entries, etc. ;)
I am not really gonna bother with 2nd and 3rd to be honest all of them where just too close so but the winner is….
*Drum roll please.*
I thought that one basically described the entire mini arc between Kabuto, Sasuke and Itachi we had going, so it won in my books.
This week Bubblition Panel is.
Pein 0ut ^:_:^
