Naruto Double Takedown Breadown 617-618
Iamnotreallyhere not really Double breaking down two whole chapters of Naruto for Tenrai Senshi. Not because he’s not been apparently tasked by one of his clients to teach their kid not to draw outside the lines… Because that would just be silly….
Chapter 617- Dance of the NInjas 2
Lee’s introspection on Neji and how he turned from being a cold aloof arsehat to a friendly rival willing to accept Lee on equal terms is something I find to be somewhat similar to the dynamic Naruto and Sasuke had before Sasuke decided to embrace the emo side of the force. I for one have to wonder if Sasuke hadn’t left Konoha if their relationship would have eventually evolved into a similar one.
In retrospect this chapter seemed to revolve heavily around Neji’s death, almost to the point of making him a martyr to the cause of the shinobi alliance. The fact that Obito constantly tried to shake Naruto by taunting him with his death only reinforced this for me
I really have to wonder about giving Lee Kurama’s Chakra as he can’t really use it for anything though I suppose it probably gives him a boost to strength and acts as some kind of armor. Makes me wonder what he would be capable of going 5 gates in Kyuubi mode.
The following however I have no explanation for…
From here we begin to learn that Naruto didn’t just give everyone a tall glass of Biju-juice, he not only had to mold that chakra to match each individuals unique chakra, he had to do it all on the fly each individual receiving a massive amount of chakra in a fraction of a second. Not only that but Kurama insinuates that he’s also maintaining a connection to each and every one in the entire shinobi alliance.
I find it very interesting that Kurama specifically mentions that he’s maintaining a connection. This pretty much tells me he’s not just powering up the shinobi alliance but also connecting them through himself. And I can imagine it may have had something to do with how they managed to pull…
This little stunt.
I actually think that Naruto’s resolve here shook Obito a bit, if only for a moment. That moment was obviously enough though as it provided an opening wide enough for both Naruto and Lee to score direct hits on the two current antagonists severing their physical connection with the Juubi.
and with that Kishi segued us over to Sasuke back in Konoha.
Chapter 618: The Ones Who Know Everything
This chapter starts out as our intrepid Emo and his band of merry malefactors go mask shopping at the local Uzemaki shrine. After finding a mask that matches their emo goals they then head to the Uchiha shrine but first a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
With this Kishi not only draws us a parallel between Sasuke and Naruto’s homecoming but he also drops oh so “subtle” hints at a parallel between him and Orochimaru before moving on to the Uchiha shrine where they begin the task of summoning the ones that know everything.
After losing a few pounds on the Shinigami diet plan Orochimaru then prepares for the next phase of his plan. Obviously this involves Edo summoning those he just released from the Shikifujin seal but where will he find his sacrifices?
Well that was handy, one zetsu for each of the summons, one for Orochimaru to use, and one spare in case someone gets… I dunno, hungry I guess? And with that we are then introduced to “The ones who know everything”
And that wraps up my double breakdown =P
Oh yeah almost forgot.
