[Manga] Naruto Chapter 689 Discussion Thread

Welcome to the weekly manga chapter discussion thread. This thread is created early to discuss spoilers and speculation about the upcoming chapter as well as discussion of said chapter once it has been released.

As per the forums rules, please don't ask for or mention about where to download the (licensed) manga. Also remember not to post or link to any translations of the manga, since this is illegal as well. Posting a synopses or summary is fine (and welcome) but please do not discuss scans, raws, translation groups, etc. Additionally, if you are posting another's synopsis (or their translation of a synopsis), then please provide credit were credit is due.

Remember that the manga is licensed, do not post significant parts of the chapter. This stands for pictures and direct translations. Summaries are OK, crops of pictures are OK as well if you want to illustrate your point but this is it.


---

Spoilers will be released when they are released. Until then, please contemplate Narutoism and meditate on the the Psalms of Sakura.

At least Sakura finally did something useful, only took 689 chapters.
Now we can move on to Black Zetsu, the real final boss, and end this war in another 3 years....

You know what I'm actually most curious about right now, for some reason?

What color is Kakashi's Susanoo?

From some of the colored translations I've seen, it seems to be orangish-yellow

Sakura actually managed to hit Kaguya. Guess they have find some way to make it seem like she can stand with the rest of team 7.

Hopefully Kaguya is sealed for good and we won't have to deal with her anymore.

By the way, anyone else notice that Naruto and Sasuke's sealing attack is identical to Naruto vs Sasuke Chidori vs Rasengan?

Oh man thank you. I kept thinking it looked familiar but for some reason I couldn't think of what it was.

Shouldn't Kaguya have seen Sakura coming with the Byakugan? Why not escape to another direction? (Down, Backwards…)

I wonder if they managed to connect. If so, there is no need for the Edo-Hokages anymore.

Seems like Byakugan is completely shoved aside in lieu of the stronger eye powers. Maybe Kishi forgot it gave 360 vision.

As long as I just take the events of the previous chapter for granted, this was an okay action chapter. That being said, I had trouble following the action scenes at times.

The final spread in the chapter was pretty cool I guess. I just want this whole Kaguya plotline and war arc to end already. It can't make me lose any more hope with Naruto at this stage.

If Naruto & Sasuke successfully seal Kaguya then what will happen to the Sage of Six Paths & Edo-Hokages discussion?

Great chapter! I don't care about logic. Sakura punched Kaguya! You go girl! The one person without any Hago bs pu.

Poor Sasuke.....

We've seen Kaguya being sealed, but she isn't sealed YET!
big difference from being sealed and SEALED. it wouldn't surprise me if she found a way out of it at the last min. you know Kishi wants to drag this out.

I hope that was the end of this shitty war. Only thing good about this arc was I got to see Zabuza again.

She was falling from above, and since Sakura can't fly she was probably kamui'd there by Kakashi. Similarly to how Sasuke could get into a safe distance only by teleporting, or rather switching place with a dying Naruto-clone. We just saw how good Kakashi is at making plans when he has the powers to actually execute those plans. Also its confirmed that the eyes were upgraded by the Sage's power/chakra so that's how Kakashi can spam his EMS jutsu.

The only way kaguya would be able to see in advance when teleporting people are coming is if she could see into the future. It would be fun if in the very end there would be some time manipulating power, that would also let team7 members die and then come back to life and shit like that. We already saw a very limited version of playing with time, both izanagi and izanami are such jutsu. Imagine a much larger scale jutsu that direcly manipulates space and time of the real world or at least the dimension they are fighting in. Kakashi would surely be able to devise a clever plan involving time paradoxes and other fun stuff

I think this is far from being over, we still don't know Kaguya's reasons/story, Sasuke's full eye power (i mean a stupid limited swapping teleport shouldn't be his ultimate ability with his new eye, its not even as good as a kamui), Sasuke with double rinnegan (i guess only possible with Naruto's chakra), Black Zetsu and the god tree were not yet explained, the 4 hokages didn't do anything yet, and Madara didn't get his ending either. So many things to finish.
