Naruto Chapter 666 Breakdown: It’s evil…
Ah yes, that awkward moment when the chapter you’re writing a breakdown for has a number synonymous with evil itself. That sure makes me feel comfortable.
Luckily, reading chapter 666 didn’t bring out the apocalypse for any of us, at least, not that we know of yet, and despite a few flashbacks that rendered it a bit on the heavy side, it was actually a decent chapter overall. The most interesting part about it for me was seeing Obito turn on his former master and not only get the better of him, but also manage to take some of his Bijuu chakra as well.
The first thing I thought when Obito took Gyouki’s and Shuukaku’s chakra was that he might be returning them to both Bee and Gaara respectively, in an effort to not only empower them but also perhaps help Bee survive his own Bijuu extraction as well. However, it didn’t take me long to realize that this probably wasn’t the case, and that in all likelihood, that chakra was going to Naruto instead.
The rational behind this theory stemmed from the fact that Naruto had already received chakra as a gift from the other 7 Bijuu, first from Son Goku before he was resealed in Gedou Moza, and then from the rest when he freed them soon after.
Eventually, this chakra went on to help Naruto extract the Bijuu from Obito, when he used it as a means to latch onto them. The only two Bijuu not present in these meetings and thus who didn’t give Naruto their chakra, were Gyouki and Shuukaku, with the former still being inside Bee, and the latter being kept hidden away in Gedou Moza mostly because Obito didn’t have a host body to house him with Gaara still alive.
This ultimately means that if we presume that Naruto still has the chakra given to him by the other seven Bijuu, and we assume that Obito gives him both the dark half of Kurama from Zetsu in addition to Shuukaku’s and Gyouki’s chakra, then Naruto will technically have the chakra of all Nine Bijuu for the first time.
The implications behind this possibility are various and depend a great deal on both how much chakra was given to Naruto from the Bijuu and what the purpose behind him receiving it is. If the Bijuu only gave Naruto a small amount of their chakra, or if he only has a small amount left after the extraction of Kurama, then it could theoretically be used to latch onto the Bijuu again and extract them from Madara, much in the way Naruto, Gaara and Bee originally latched onto and extracted the Bijuu from Obito before.
However, if they gave Naruto a great deal of their chakra, or even half of it (kinda like how Minato split Kuurama’s chakra in half and sealed half inside Naruto) then it stands to reason that Naruto could be empowered in such a way, as to become more a match for Madara’s strength, especially if the Bijuu’s power is divided up between them more evenly. Considering how the Juubi itself seemed to sense the Rikudou Sennin’s power inside Naruto (along with the Bijuu’s chakra), it even stands to reason that Naruto receiving parts of all their chakra, might serve as a means to awaken something hidden deep inside him, which might lead to a great revelation or perhaps even a spiritual meeting with the Rikudou Sennin himself.
I also did notice that some people seemed to be confused about whether Obito also extracted the other half Kurama out of Madara, but I am certain this is not the case because if it was, Madara would have mentioned it specifically, rather than referring to Obito only acquiring some of the Ichibi’s and Hachibi’s chakra. Kurama’s dark half was already within Obito’s reach when he took control of his body again, which was shared with Black Zetsu, but there’s no reason to believe he somehow got access to the light half as well.
Aside from the obvious mystery behind Naruto’s survival and how the Bijuus’ chakra might come into play over these next few chapters, I suppose I could also mention the reunion of Kakashi and Obito as a team again, which served as an obvious nod to their past and the Kakashi Gaiden in particular, but then I feel like I’d simply be treading an already well worn path, so I’ll just insert a nice picture here that pretty much sums it up instead.
I have to admit, I would have liked to have seen what kind of Susanoo version Obito and Kakashi might have been able to conjure by using both of their eyes together, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be – at least, not for now anyway.
Ultimately, however, their plan still worked out in the end and Obito managed to get to Naruto, where he appears to be infusing Dark Kurama’s chakra – and perhaps Shukakuu’s and Gyouki’s as well – into him.
To be honest, with Naruto’s birthday coming around in mere moments and with the chakra of nine Bijuu possibly being housed within him, I’m certain we have some big revelations on the way. It makes me very eager to read chapter 667 and see what happens next, not to mention I’m also expecting that we’ll see Gai open the 8 celestial gates as well, which should be epic.
Anyway, that’s all from me for now. Instead of having a Bubbliton contest this week, however, I’ve decided to return to an old favorite in the form of an official WRA battle debate. Here’s this week’s match-up!
I was also considering Madara vs everyone, but then I realized that it would be too one-sided in favor of Madara, so this will have to do for now.
The rules for this debate are simple. Both combatants are in their prime and neither of them are Edo Tensei summons. Minato does NOT have Kurama’s Yin chakra and Orochimaru has NOT absorbed any unknown powers from Kabuto, mostly because it’s hard to debate on unknown variables, so I’m going with the versions of these characters that we know best.
We’ll also assume that they know a lot about each other, which would probably be an accurate assumption.
Remember, the poll counts but comments count more, so if you want your favorite pick to win, please take part in the debate!
I’ll see you all in the comments! ^ ^
