Naruto Chapter 675-676: Team 7 Rides again, or How Sakura became a synonym for FAIL!
Salutations!! this is Iamnotreallyhere here or am I? here for to do a double breakdown the awesomeness of Naruto as once again Tenrai needs to do this thing mysterious called Wuu’irk at a place known as a G’ob, one can only assume this is some kind of ritual version of a nap. Now onwards to breakdowns!!
Chapter 675- Hax, Quacks, and Flashbacks Attack!
It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane… Nope it’s just Sakura failing as per usual. Geez at least once I would like to see this Kunoichi do something that doesn’t end with someone else having to save her. She has become the Inoue Orihime of Naruto, powerful in her own ways but utterly useless most of the time.
Meanwhile in the Other world Obito and Madara chatter like old women. From their little chat we learn a few things. Mostly that Madara was behind Rin’s kidnapping and Jinchuriki-ing (for some of us this was less a new thing and more of a confirmation of suspicions), although we also learn that both Rin and Obito had this odd fascination with having Kakashi shoving his hand through their chest.
Yup Sakura is still full of fail but at least she can take care of Kakashi and his missing eye right? No one else can do that better than a highly trained Medical Nin like Sakura. It’s a good thing no one else has been given hackneyed powers to heal any injury or any condition with nothing more than a touch, even without knowing a thing about what they are doing, or how to actually heal the injury or reverse the condition.
Well obviously since Madara could pop out of litterally no where to attack at any time from any angle this is the perfect time to reminisce about the past. It must be a good idea because that’s what Kakashi does, and being a Jonin he must know what he’s doing right? Because using your time to develop a plan of attack or to tell your comrades what you know about the opponent who will be trying to kill you in mere moments is obviously a horrid use of your time. In any case after his careful and well thought out remembrance we are treated to an open Kamui portal.
Chapter 676: Yakkity Yak! It’s Raining Hax!!
Wow does Madara like to hear his own voice, he and his Zetsu start this chapter off strong with some clever smack talk as well as the obligatory exposition. I have to wonder though if Obito will stay dead here orif Naruto will ply his magic touch and bring him back. Though at this point I’m not sure if he’s even capable of such a feat. In any case after a few brief pages of chatter we are treated to a surprise as Sakura is the first to take action.
And while I’m sure her efforts didn’t quite have the results she anticipated, at the very least she didn’t make things any worse. I’m not sure if it was one of Madara’s Limbos that blocked the punch or some other effect though I do find it interesting that in the panel in which the limbos can be seen from Sasuke’s point of view, the black half of Zetsu attached to Obito’s body shows up in the same manner as the limbo clones, I wonder if this has any connotations as to the nature of Zetsu or if it was unintentional. It’s interesting to note that he created four limbos this time around and it brings up a couple of interesting questions.
I know Madara said the time for play is over but I get the feeling he’s still not taking this fight too seriously, especially considering he starts throwing rocks at our intrepid heroes. Albeit they are rather big rocks. In any case his objective is pretty clear by this point. He’s not trying to kill them or he would have pulled some other new jutsu out of his arse. Not to be taken lightly Madara’s limbos enter the fray forcing both Sasuke and Naruto to split their attention between them and the now rather large rocks falling out of the sky. As diversions I would say this worked out fairly well for Madara, as for what he does next I’m just a little bit more confused.
Image 6 ( Madara’s Third Eye)
I know he’s up in the air, probably pretty high up too, what confuses me however is his inner monologue. Does he mean himself as he possesses the power of both migrations, or does he mean Naruto and Sasuke? Either way i seems like he’s gained a new eye, what exactly this means is still a matter of debate. It definitely draws a parallel between Madara and Kaguya, and the voice that he heard a few chapters ago makes me think that Kaguya is some how still connected to the Juubi. Either way to get any real answers we’ll have to wait for the next chapter. Till then I await ye all in the comments.
