Hey I want you guys to know that my 16 year old brother had a massive heart failure and is in the hospital. If anyone who sees this is a praying man/woman, please offer a prayer for his recovery as our family is very scared right now. Thank you.
You'd better not joke about this....but if not...i really wish you goodluck and your brother...i really do (since these things arent jokes...)

-I don't think thatt he is joking at all. He hasn't attended the forums at ll today which would indicate grief and sorrow. No decent person would mention something like this and then say it was a prank all along...

Yeah well by nature i am a real nice person....and it's really shocking when people are making pranks like this (or curse with nasty sick words) on the internet....that's why i asked...

But anyway...about the chapter...just some random thoughts i'd like to share with you guys ...

Naruto's calm behaviour
He didnt brag at all...since he arrived...asked where Shikamaru is...then he said: I can handle him...

Faith of his companions
As i mentioned before...his companions have now ALOT of confidence in his abilities especially Yamato...

Summoning Pakkun?
I dont understand this...why summon Pakkun? Shikamaru was only a few hundred metres (maybe a 1 mile away)

Throwing his sigarette away
His revenge seems over...with the response after throwing his sigarette...farewell sensei...so i guess it means he'll quick smoking.....right?

Naruto and the Kyuubi
Ok as been mentioned...it seems that Naruto had Kyuubi eyes...but Yamato said you're about to see an completly new Naruto. Perhaps he ment....Naruto without using the Kyuubi chakra at all...

Not only that wasnt he supposed to finish the jutsu and then leave the village...and otherwise other teams would be sent as backup...?!

-Yeah I noticed those too. Naruto is definetly calm, cool, and collected now (come to think of it that little fact kind of scares me). He's only been training for a few days and now all of a sudden he means business? Could it have something to with Asuma's death? And yeah, no one made an attempt to convince Naruto otherwise when he said he'd take Kakuzu down. No one, neither Kakashi, Sakura or Yamato. Is he really that strong now to be able to take down an Akatsuki member? What could have happened in the last 24 hours to create this?

Yes given a clean hit, but I was assuming the original poster meant Kakuzu would have no say in his own fate, which i thought was a bit too much... I might have misunderstood.

I do think it's really interesting that nobody questions Naruto anymore. Kakashi doesn't know how strong he is, but Yamato does and Sakura probably does too. When he suggests taking on an Akatsuki member by himself(one that Yamato himself said must be super-strong because he beat Kakashi), nobody even looks concerned, much less giving him the usual "Don't be an idiot Naruto."

If his 50% Wind Rasengan really brought him up to the level of Kakuzu, he's going to be nuts when he masters it. Personally I think that it's not just the strength of the jutsu, but just as much the strength Naruto acquired in the process of training for it that's made him so strong now. I think he's going to show a bunch of new abilities in this fight.

i honestly think that the jutsu being incomplete is due to the lack of another element to manipulate into it, but who knows. I hope they explain more oh hidan and kakuzu they are intresting but looks like good fights to come

Which is exactly what I wouldn't like to happen. Kakuzu is a powerful guy (is he even hurt at the moment? i forget) and to have Naruto kill him in one blow is just too much imo. Of course Naruto is going to "suprise" the readers in the coming chapters, but simply fighting on equal ground as Kakuzu is good enough to show his increase in strength. Owning a guy like Kakuzu in one hit is a little much right now though...

Okey people Suna no tate's message is passed and I don't want to see discussion about medical insurance, health care or whatever anymore.
This thread is about the chapter 338, please keep it that way.

Hunter-san, I'm removing most of these deleted offtopic posts for tidiness' sake. The first two deleted off topic posts will remain there to serve as a reminder.

To be on topic myself, what the heck is Kishimoto cooking? I can hardly recognize anything about this series just by reading a few lines from the opening posts. There are also seem to be a lot of new names! I suppose the anime viewers will be up for a some crazy ride! Anyway, everyone can ignore me now as they go onward with the topic of discussion!

I hate to be the one to ask it, but if Naruto really can own Kakuzu in this upcoming chapter, do you think that will put him above Sauske? I honestly don't think Sauske could defeat someone that Kakashi probably couldn't beat on his own.

Don't know where you stopped folowing the story, but, my guess it is at the end of part 1 (if you are following only anime). If that is the case, the new additions compared to part 1, in the last few chapters are, two Akatsuki members - Kakuzu and Hidan - , the person who replaced Sasuke - Sai, and the person who took over the duty of Kakashi - Yamato (since Kakashi was hospitalized for a long duration).

But, in general, the story evolves around the usual characters, so the others will end up disappearing sooner or later.

-Don't forget Sasori-the Akatsuki puppet master from Sunagakure, Deidara-the clay bomber Akatsuki from Iwagakure, and Tobi-the Akatsuki's good little boy .

In this manga Naruto and Sasuke are meant to be not only friends but also rivals. So that one time Naruto is stronger than the other time Sasuke, that makes things interesting. When they fought Gaara Naruto got stronger, but after that in the valley of the end Sasuke got stronger and was stronger when they met at Orochimaru's hideout, so it may be that Naruto will get stronger when they meet next time.
They are trained by the sannin, so it's natural that they will get stronger than Kakashi, and eventually stronger than their teachers.

Im not sure why everyone is conserned about how powerful naruto has become, talking about taking down an Akatsuki member alone.

Most of the Akatsuki members are ment to be S-rank nin. Amazing powerful nin wanted by all countries because of their evil actions etc. Sasori was known for wiping out en entire country by himself. yet dispite being this powerful, Sakura, a chunnin, took down Sasori alone.....and shes not really THAT impressive. Shes a medical nin, most of her techniques i would assume would bemore construction than destructive.

Naruto is a normal nin, who uses destructive techniques. One should only assume that naruto would be a better fighter than sakura due to their different specialisations in different types of techniques.

Sasori who wiped out a country, or kakuzu who.....beat up kakashi?

But would Oro really allow Sasuke to get stronger than he is? It would be kind of a gamble seeing as Oro will eventually have to take over Sasuke, and if Sasuke is stronger, then it may not happen the way he wants. Sasuke doesn't have the same reverence for Oro as the rest of Oro's minions. He doesn't call Oro with the "-sama."

Uh, Sakura took down Sasori alone? I remember Chiyo having a little something to do with it, like doing most of the fighting, protecting Saskura from Sasori's attacks, landing the killing blow and healing Sakura from the brink of death. If Naruto can defeat an Akatsuki by himself it will be something special. Both Sakura and Shikamaru had a knowledge of their enemies' special abilities and prep time before managing a victory. Naruto will be going into this battle with nothing but his training with Yamato and Kakashi.

if naruto beats kakuzu that means he's very close to hokage level (as kakazu only has 2 hearts left)... unless he absolutely stomps him

Aye yah, i'll have to go back and re-read those chapters.

Also has it acctually been said that Kakuzu matched up to the 1st? The translation i read just said that he fought him, never mentioned anything about the turn out. Cause u can fight someone, loose and not die
