Well, it seems everyone's scare about Naruto getting 'blown away' was quite literally miles off the mark. If anything, as opposed to Sai and Sakura, Naruto seemed to have done quite well fencing off against team Kumogakure, even grabbing Sai's sword in the process to balance out their kenjutsu. (Leaving Sai quite surprised, might I add.)

Kakashi is showing wisdom, and that's a good sign. I doubt Danzou will relinquish power that easily though, even -if- the jounin vote against him in some kind of emergency meeting.

All in all, I found it to be a very entertaining chapter. Again!

-How interesting. Looks like Sai just described exactly how we should perceive Danzou's character. We may not like him or the things he has done, but he does care about the village (even if he had used underhanded tactics in order to keep it safe). Who knows, he might just be a decent enough Hokage that will achieve enlightenment upon death. And if he doesn't, well the Jonin council can just boot him out of the office. Anyways, this was a very good chapter, even if it only adds about 5-7 minutes to an actual anime episode (but those don't matter anyway).

Good points:
-Sai's conflicting choice. Does he choose duty over friendship? Damn, that Naruto brainwash speech is fierce. Kenichi's Niijima should take pointers .
-Naruto handling Karui and Omoi. Seriously, its almost unreal to see Naruto not take the first hit from his opponents. If Sakura had not gotten "kick-tossed" the fight might have seen the Kumo nins on the ground.
-Naruto being informed that Sasuke and Akatsuki are in cahoots. What you gonna do now Naru-chan?

Bad points (this seems petty, even to me):
-If Sai cannot talk about Danzou how is it that he can say that the latter is/was involved in dirty work? Wouldn't you normally want to avoid any implications of wrongdoings when you seal away someone's tongue?

P.S: For those Naruto x Karui fans, you just got your service today. Page 11 shows their eyes meeting. You can kick it it off from there. Yes, I am taking that panel totally out of context but it is fun .

Yes... i agree with everything you mentioned...including the good and bad things ..
First thing i noticed was the movement of Naruto. Kishi showed the progres Naruto has made. He was alerter then the others and handled them very well.

As mentioned...by himself or Orochimaru talking to the 3rd. It is really harder to fight while protecting someone else (if they interfere). But at the same time i have to admit that this cloud team is most certainly the strongest squad of the Cloud.
They are/seem really impressive and i like them already.

Also the real Naruto didnt get hurt... he saved Sakura which i liked ... but the clone did go poof. To me Naruto (normal) is either on the same level as Kakashi or slightly better. Naruto (Sennin Mode) is on an entirely different level though ... also... what do you guy's thing... is Naruto (normal) better then Jiraiya (normal?) because i am not sure about that..

Sakura's fists are deadly weapons, can't have them touching anyone...I wonder if Sai could write a letter about Danzo, since his mouth is sealed
Fun chapter was fun, can't wait to read more.

Oh lol, you're right. But maybe it was some sort of loophole that allowed Sai to say that. We don't know the exact details of this "shut the fuck up" jutsu.

i think this kind of seal is somehow connected to the person's thoughts. It's not like some1 is listening to every word he says and activates the seal when he badmouths danzo. The seal also cant react to the name itself. So my guess is, when some1 with the seal tries to talk about danzo's actions the seal reacts to the thought of it. Would also explain why he cant write about it...

Well we all know by the end of course Cloud will end up awed by Naruto and he will somehow change their minds on killing Sasuke...or have them leave it to him.

Thoughts on Killer Bee making an appearance soon?
The only way the Cloud-nin will decide to let Sasuke live is if Killer Bee shows up. They are out on a revenge mission, and no amount of "speeches" will change their minds.

Also, I suspected that the Cloud nin were very powerful before this last chapter. The femail Cloud-nin thought that she destroyed Konoha with a single stone, as if she was capable of doing so but was distraught over her own lack of control. Who knows what else they will be able to do?

- SIDE NOTE -

I've been reading some comments about Naruto surpassing Jiraya and the 4th, and I disagree.

Granted, Naruto's improvement is beyond his years thanks to his KB learning technique(which is truly a bigger hack than sage mode, FRS and kyuubi chakra), but there is no one alive to teach him what it is he is trying to achieve.

In other words, geniuses are geniuses because they not only have the ability to learn fast, but they have the ability to use their imaginations to futher what they have learned and create new, different and often times better applications. I don't see this in Naruto, and KB should NOT be able to bridge that gap either. It may help him cut down on the trial and error stage of learning, but it shouldn't afford him the genius-like creativity, vision and more importantly an understanding of how to manipulate the raw forces that clearly played a role in Yondaime creating the rasengan and flying thunder god technique. Take away the KB learning and he's a clever kid who uses shadow clones and an incomplete rasengan ... although his pilgrimage with Jiraya has made him much more clever.

Unless Kishi is going to close the show really soon, its doesn't make sense to make Naruto and Sasuke into these super saiyan level 4 type characters. Well now that I've written it, I'm thinking that I must be right. The manga must be about to end.

For Naruto to go from chump to champ only after having studied with the frogs for a short time, its gotta be ending because at this rate Naruto will soon be so powerful that the only ones who will be able to match him are the bijuus. There is no place left for him to go and nothing left for him to do except play with Sasuke, who himself seems to be uber hax'd and still growing with the Eternal Sharingan still waiting for him.

I'm looking forward to next issue because we finally get to see Gaara and whether or not his abilities have returned or not!

haha, sasuke literally had that miserable look on his face since his first introduction to the story (ch3 p5). It almost looks like the same face, but side profiled and a bit less dramatic because of the head protector. lol what a gloomy guy

It was interesting to learn that the jounin still have to vote for Hokage. Of course, I think Danzou's still going to remain Hokage either by rigging the vote or using some technicality. It'll also be great to see Naruto and Sakura's reaction to Sasuke joining Akatsuki. Up until now, they've only seen Sasuke as blinded by revenge I wonder how they're going attempt to rationalize/deny Sasuke's actions (because you know they will)

I'm pretty sure that destroying-Konoha-with-a-rock thing was just supposed to be a joke not indicator of their power. But yeah, the could-nin were impressive. I also like the fact that they use katana, very few ninja have used weapons outside kunai and shuriken.

The way he flipped his sword around really reminded me of Kenshin. So far these cloud ninja have really been entertaining and the female nin pretty easy on the eyes. I'm looking forward to seeing them in real action. Its interesting that they are pupils of KillerBee.; they probably fight really well as a unit.

serves me right for believing early spoilers. Glad to see normal Naruto has grown aswell and it's not just about powerups.
Gotta love in the first panel Karui and Omoi appeared, both Sakura & Sai standing still while Naruto's already on the move to counter them.

Yeah if Sai can't talk about Danzo , can he write instead ?
The ninja of Kumogakure aren't bad . The guy "Don't kill them" hmm he don't know how much strong Naruto Sakura and Sai are . I would say that its them who should say it lol
Naruto discover that Sasuke is with Akatsuki Look his face XD
Anyway , Sasuke is coming don't worry Konoha , you don't have to move .
I can see Sasuke's team vs Kumogakure's team and Sasuke vs the others .

(wow Sasuke's haters )

What I like about this chapter is the sense of urgency and worry now that Sasuke is being redlisted. It almost makes me feel like I care about him again.

What I don't like about this chapter is that it took so long for the story to finally shift focus on him as a threat and start treating him like one. Even with Tsunade as Hokage early on, they should have treated him less leniently.

I want to see those Kumogakure nin's faces when Naruto shows them just how weak they are in comparison.

At least Danzo knows not to do anything bad to Naruto right now or most likely he would be removed. But still the guy is evil...EVILLLLLLLL! Naruto stopped a sword with his hands....that's new. Anyways, not much this chapter but I think it should be getting good soon. Or so I hope anyways. Deep down inside, I want Naruto to go rouge, like a lone wolf thing. Anyone else feel this way or just me? I'm pretty sick of the village..... and a lot of other things. Oh, Naruto should of bee able to pwn those guys instantly now, he's still too soft.

Maybe he can catch Sasuke's lightning sword? HMMMMM!?!!?
