Oh well, better luck next manga...

hahaha had to laugh with all the new Hokage candidates suddenly popping out

It was a nice chapter though, hopefully Sakura now will have the constant strength she has and won't need another 3 years to charge the pinnacle of crap thing. Some could be handled better when Sakura was talking she shouldn't have been saved by Naruto or Sasuke but just pwns the pawn of the Juubi, that would made it looked cooler.

TT___TT I could not help but cry when I read this chapter. Sakura can now fight together with Naurto and Sasuke while still carrying on the healing role of the group (Given that she has alot of chakara left over). Soo more justus for her. Though I'm not too sure how Sasuke was able to create swords of Amaterasu but still cool never the less. Now what I do hope is that we are shown more team work with the all 3 of them.

Also, kindly stop assuming my stance on the matter. I stated last chapter that Sakura had so much wasted potential as a character due to how Kishimoto handled her. For her to suddenly be all important is jarring to say the least.

-You're asking where Sakura making things worse comes from? From the time she decided to have the bright idea of killing Sasuke herself with a poisoned kunai. It failed spectacularly and said poison was used on Naruto, her own teammate. I also meant my statement as a joke since jokes are all about exaggeration. Like I said above and as you so admitted, Sakura was doing her job as a proper medical ninja. I raised no fuss over that since it you know, makes sense. You don't send your white mage on the front row against an Eldricht Abomination if you catch my drift.

Her going back to that route just smacks of restoring the status quo. Sakura however is "too little, too late" in the sense that she's suddenly necessary for the offensive, like this chapter is trying to imply.

Boring... and lame.

Sasuke is a wuss, can´t be taken seriously... Of course this had to happen some day, but instead of giving us a fight to remember like at the end of the first part of the whole manga, it is just a lame development now. They gonna fight but is not gonna be as absolutes opposites, lame.

And Sakura? Wait, she was still a character in Naruto verse? No idea.

Why are the past hokages here? This was the new generation versus the grudges of the past. It makes no sense... well, is a shounen. So be it I guess.

I pray for an evil plan because seriously hate how Kishi makes a hero out Sasuke all the time when he is a total jerk and ass for 90% of teh time.

And looks like all his bad doings will be forgotten and forgiven once everything is done -_-

Moral of the story, you can be as much of a jerk as you want. Just make one big/good thing and everything will forgiven!

Such bullshit!

Good chapter. It's going to start annoying me if Sakura keeps that diamond on her forehead.

It's not swords of Amaterasu it's Enton: Kagutsuchi he uses one eye to create Amaterasu and then manipulates it's shape with the other.

This was all explained when Sasuke fought the Raikage during the 5 kage arc.

They are irrelevant, especially now that Neji is a ghost. Kishi is telling you Rookie 9 >>>>>>>> Konoha 11 or 12. So they aren't part of the big Konona High School reunion. Sai too now that Team 7 is back. Only Team 7, Team 10, and Team 8 matter.

Did Hinata just move her interest from Naruto to Kiba? Talk about a downgrade going from an annoying main character to comic relief. And is Ino flirting with Shikamaru while he is jealous of Sasuke? Might as well go for it since Temari never appears. All the shipping is messed up.

Unless "bigger" means she can now leave craters the size of Madara's meteors, it's not enough

Someone should tell Sakura she's still a Sage mode and Kyuubi mode/Tsukuyomi, Amaterasu and Susanoo short of fighting equally with those two.

Dude, they’re just talking. Why all conversations (no matter how short they are) between opposite-sex buddies suddenly should lead to romance and shipping?

I didnt agree with most complaints that the previous chapters sucked. I actually enjoyed them.

But this particular chapter was unbelievably crappy.

It was already lame that Sakura was joining the fight with her useless no-powerup skills, but now Kishi decided to add the rest of the cannon-fodder to the fight? It has turned into a clusterf***.

He even conveniently recycled the same stupid concept of splitting up the main enemy (white zetzu zombies) into little pieces in order to make it plausible that it can be attacked by everyone individually.

Meh, I was really enjoying the build up so far, but the setup for this chapter is utterly dumb. Im guessing were going to get another dozen chapters of treadmilling with all the cannon-fodder being a distraction and requiring saving , until finally they step aside.

Sakura's power punches were painful to watch.

On a side note, It would be absolutely hilarious if Naruto suddenly started sulking and decided he doesn't want to be Hokage anymore with all these copycats. =)

I'm guessing that if Sasuke is still evil, Naruto should be able to sense it in his kyuubi mode, no?

Entertaining chapter. I enjoyed Sakura's power up, only problem I have with it is that it seems to have come out of thin air, but meh. A few hints that she was working towards a Tsunade-like power up would have made it less of an ass-pull, but still much needed for her. The few time she has actually fought have been good, I never felt like she *needed* to 'catch up' with Sasuke and Naruto to be honest, there are ways Kishi could have made Sakura useful and interesting to watch (as he did against Sasori), but he just didn't have the time of day for her unfortunately. I feel like that whole bridge scene messed up both Sakura's and Sasuke's characterization quite badly, because now both of them are behaving contradictory to that time and it doesn't feel quite right.

very meh chapter for me. i hope it's not the case, but i'll just safely assume that this is it for sakura's "awesome power" and now naruto, sasuke and the edo-hokages will do things that actually matter.

Am I missing something here? this is the perfect chance for the ten tails to break the barrier, release the barrier or all the ppl inside the barrier will be evaporated

But I guess we will go to the typical route where the ten tails will break the barrier when it transforms to the final form
pretty much... it made no sense to me either. instead of frying everyone inside, the juubi reduced itself to human sized forms so it could get the crap kicked out of itself... the only explanation is that in these large forms the juubi is a mindless blob. i hope it transforms into a human-sized creature (or at least normal bijou sized creature) that can talk and has a mind of it's own. that would be interesting to say the least

not to me. there wasn't any innuendo in jugo's words. i think he legitimately was wondering what sasuke thought about being back with his 'friends'. jugo's probably a little jealous

And what happened to Orochimaru and the other two lackeys?
as odd as it sounds, i bet he's saving tsunade, and the other kages, but mostly her. he's got his snake immortality jutsus and karin's healing power. not sure what suigetsu will do though

Kishimoto has got too stuck in trying to cater to too many fanbases in his manga. Not every character needs to have "their moment." It's too late for that. You don't suddenly hamfist development that was never there to begin with after all these years. It's stupid and contrived. Things are proceeding so goddamn slow.

Good job, girl, you actually moved even lower in my perception while showcasing your badassery. Didn't know that was possible.
Pretty much. I couldn't stop laughing at the inherent stupidity of the chapter.
