Naruto 673-674: Holy Burning Biju Balls does Madara get Stinkeyed!
Sorry for the lateness of the breakdown.
Tis Iamnotreallyhere with another not really Naruto double breakdown because Tenrai is out shopping for new a new shiny. In any case lets start this thing shall we.
Chapter 673: Holy Burnng Monkey Balls Emo Man!
This chapter is Starts out with the revelation that whatever it was that Naruto did in the last chapter has stopped the Eight Gates from finishing Gai. This revelation supports my current theory that Naruto has received the Rikkudo’s Yang abilities, or his ability to breathe life into things, and Sasuke recieved the Yin powers or the ability to create from nothing. Though at this point that’s just speculation. After that the chapter just becomes a fairly one sided battle Between Naruto and Madara.
The battle between Naruto and Madara is kind of short though and consists almost entirely of Madara WTF’ing every time Naruto does something that he couldn’t do before. In the process of Pwning Madara as seen in the image above, Naruto also manages to cut down the Jyuubi’s tree form. This is where things get a little more interesting because as the tree falls something or someone calls out to Madara telling him to absorb the Jyuubi.
The face in the above page suggests that the voice calling out to Madara was none other than that of Kaguya, the mother of the Rikkudo himself. If that’s the case this suggests the possibility that she could be the real big bad of the whole story. After absorbing the Jyuubi Madara seems ready for round two with Naruto when who shows up to spoil things?
And as they face Madara down he begins his back talk informing us that Naruto now has the sages Senjutsu, while Sasuke now has his Rinningan, and that he has both. The chapter the ends in a standoff with Madara declaring that whomever wins would prove themselves the more powerful.
Chapter 674: Sasuke’s Brand new Stinkeye!
There are a few points I want to cover in this chapter even though it’s mostly just a fight chapter. The first thing is Sasuke’s new left eye and what he seems to be doing with it through out the chapter.
Several possibilities come to mind some less plausible than others. The first is Izanagi as this would make the most sense. Izanagi was one of the Rikkudo’s doujutsu and would easily explain how Madara has been finding himself in rather less than ideal situations all through out the chapter. Though we don’t know exactly all what Izanagi is capable of we do know from Sasuke’s battle with Danzou that it’s capable of changing whether or not a Jutsu has connected much like what it seems like Sasuke has done in the first of the chapter.
The second possibility is that Sasuke’s left eye has the power to manipulate time/space naturally without Izanagi or similar jutsu. As we do not yet understand the width and depth of the new power both Sasuke and Naruto have obtained this is a definite possibility, though no evidence has presented itself to prove or disprove this theory… yet.
We can now see what Limbo is and apparently it’s really Emo Style: Imaginary Friend no Jutsu. This bring up one question in my mind and that is this: Why didn’t Nagato use Limbo? He supposedly had access to all the power of the rinningan but we never saw this technique, and given that there were times where such a power would have been very useful I can’t see him not having used it.
One theory I have is that it somehow ties into the Outer path though I’m not sure at this point just how it would be tied to it. We know that all the powers of Nagato’s Rinningan had an avatar associated with them with the sole exception of the Outer path. Another idea is that maybe Limbo clones was how he controlled all of his paths of Pein, or perhaps I’m just reading too much into it. Either way it leaves me with questions, questions without readily available answers.
Back to the Action in any case Madara manages to give even Sasuke’s new Stinkeye no jutsu the slip, though I believe he loses his Limbo clone in the process, what with it being hit with Shukaku’s sealing jutsu and all. Not sure how this might hinder him if at all so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
So Apparently eyes are now plug and play in the Naruto universe. Oh and Kakashi loses his eye… again. I mean he really does have a hard time keeping that left eye of his doesn’t he? Not that it’s a great loss for him in any case as it was near to blind, if not completely blind by that point. Still that has to sting > <
Anyways blind or not Madara is able to use the eye to get to the other world where he then ambushes Nagato and Sakura as she works up the nerve to smash Madara’s other Rinningan eye. Whether or not she succeeds is to be continued though.Who am I kidding of course she fails, the real question is whether or not she dies or is severely injured in the process of failing at this point.
What new powers will Madara have when he has both of his eyes, and if he’s fighting Naruto and Sasuke on roughly an even level with only One eye how much better will he fair with both? Only time and new chapters can answer these pressing questions. See ya all in the comments and thanks for reading = P
