tobirama needs a fan club.

Also, looks like kyuubi #2 is ready for action, and senjutsu-kurama mode is just around the corner

This is pretty amazing foreshadowing, and it makes sage mode pretty relevant again

-- Also... did naruto finally do a one handed rasengan?

So when Obito blasted the Edo Third Hokage, he dispelled him for good so the old man can't pull himself back together and has passed on?

uhh. i'm sure madara will have something to say about that. also, this is just one hit on juubito. i'm sure he'll recover and get more defensive now

Obito shot down how "useless" the fourth is .. but damm look like Naruto is pretty sharp just like the second saying "he isnt that dumb" lmao that was funny.. but even tho Hashirama was the strongest Hokage look like the Second was great too ! he is quick at analysis and action.

Was the first thing I noticed as well.

Now is this the reason why Madara is keeping Hashirama busy? He knows that only sage mode can keep up with the sage and therefore stops the only person about who he knows can use it?

Though somehow I fear that Sasuke is suddenly going to pull out a sage mode of his own in the next chapter.

This chapter and the last one were really quite good.

The is always at its peak when it the fighting involves strategy.

Also I think DKN117 is right. 3rd Hokage might be gone for good.

I remember reading something somewhere about Orochimaru's cursed seal being a form of sage mode, which he learned from studying Juugo (can't remember where)

If that's true, then sasuke using cursed seal might be able to damage obito.

If that does happen, I hope the design for the cursed seal looks better. That gargoyle transformation thing was crappy looking.

On a side note, how is the 4th supposed to form seals with only one hand now?

Last two chapters have been really worth it. Though anyone else feel that this one ended a bit suddenly?

Yeah, I think Sasuke sage mode is coming and another Sas/Naru combo is on its way.

what I am more curious in this chapter..

everyone look surprise at naruto holding a rasengan..Why?

is it because he did a rasengan with just one hand?without using any shadow clones or kurama cloak arms??...so now he can make a rasengan with just one hand izit??

I think it had more to do with the fact that he had gone into senju mode, but at the time we couldn't see his face only his back, it helped build the suspense before the reveal to the reader.

Iirc the three others had not seen him in senju mode yet so can understand their surprise.

Wow Naruto is becoming even more surprising then usual.... He not just do the Rasengan with one hand but also notice that Senjutsu still works on Obito.

I also started to like second Hokage more, he is more impressive than expected and not so much of a hothead as the First Hokage said he was.

Finally, the Kyuubi in Minato speaks. I was wondering how it was they hadn't internalized that dialogue still.

Should be interesting - maybe it will willingly fuse with Naruto to complete his Jinchuuriki-ness.

Kyuubis are going to combine into one entity and gives Naruto a bunch of chakras to do a lot of senjutsu??

sounds good... xD

now, how will Sasuke help Naruto?? He can't use senjutsu right?

He never use it or shown signs that he can, but many of his abilities are obtain without us knowing unlike Naruto when we see him training. It may be possible he received training from the snakes as Orochimaru and Kabuto did.

Hashirama did call it Sage mode, and I remember Kabuto mentioning a Forest Sage.

Not even close. This entire fight has been one big back and forth seesaw. This will be no different. Obito will be good as new in two weeks. The other Kages haven't arrived and the Alliance hasn't done their "we can change the world" attack. And Sasuke's betrayal still needs more time to build.

The biggest thing in this chapter is we now know how we will get rid of the Edo Kages. Kudos to Kishi for that. But if that is how Hiruzen went out so quickly- very disappointing.
