May you rest in peace, Nara Shikaku & Yamanaka Inoichi. You both have done an good deed for the village of the Leaf & The War of the 4th. Now it's time for Yamanaka Ino & Nara Shikamaru to take over the name.

Dang, that's a heck of a way to go. Still... I wonder if they survived somehow. One of them could have done something about it, perhaps. We'll have to see. How many times has Kishi written some text at the end of a chapter that's turned out to be false? Quite a few times. I wonder how Shikaku managed to come up with a strategy in... it can't be much more than a minute.

And also, something horrible has happened, and will possibly continue to happen until the strategy works, or they're all dead.

Hmph... Madara stating the basics of war is kind of amusing, in the sense that he doesn't realise that the mind of the Shinobi Alliance is still very much alive. Shikamaru has been underestimated before, several times and his opponents rarely live to regret that mistake.

There was a good deal of shikakus conversation muted. What he said with Kakashi, and what he said in the brief moments before his demise. I get the feeling this will be covered as a flashback in the next chapter or two. The good news is that in any epic story, someone's dying plan rarely doesn't work. (Example: when Jiraya died) So, we can only assume that Shikaku's plan will come through. Also, we still don't know what was given to Naruto in the fist bumps from the 6 tailed beasts earlier.


As for a guess towards Shikaku's plan, my guess is seal madara. He asked about all of the previous battles. All of these battles were with edo tensei. Seal Madara, my guess is Obito will be unable to control the beast alone.

Obito looks like he's struggling with it as it is. Madara's been advising him on how to exert his control with Hashirama's DNA, but somehow I doubt that will be enough. Whatever Rikodu Sennin had to control this beast and seal it, he doesn't have. Just looking at his expression you can see he's struggling. Look at how he had to restrain... the five tails, I believe, when it charged to attack him. He couldn't control the beasts individually and he won't be able to control them all combined. His plan is just a pipe dream without Madara. And Sasuke... well I think he's going to acquire more knowledge and power before he makes his choice. When the time's right, he will engage Naruto in a fight to the death when the war is almost over. One, both or neither of them will die in that fight.

There is an small chance that Yamanaka Inoichi & Nara Shikaku & Ao is alive. If Mabui use her Tensou no Jutsu. Which she used on 4th Raikage & 5th Hokage. But they might not handle it since they may not have the body to handle it.

Ya, Uchiha could control 1-9 tailed beast by controlling them using an Gen Jutsu, but this is the 10th tailed beast. Not as powerful as the former one which Sage fought, but close enough. Obito & Madara had to use 1st Hokage Hashirama's Jutsu, and from my understanding in the manga. The Sage didn't appear to have any wood Jutsu.

This is an fetch idea, but Sage could've his wife or someone from the Uzumaki clan to use an seal to trap the 10th then used an another Jutsu to seal it inside of the Sage. Like in Madara vs Hashirama's battle. Mito Uzumaki could be close by keeping the Kyuubi under her control by her chains

I hope Kishimoto re introduce the Hyuuga Clan in this war along with Uzumaki. Also I believe Naruto could use the 6 legendary items that Sage used. Which 4th Raikage mention. But right now, the Banana fan would be an perfect item to use in this war. Tenten can't handle using it alot since it take alot of chakra from the user.

Chapter 614 is out.

Madara wanted to become the 10th host. Sadly that he must be human like Obito to become an host. Another proof of the Moon Eye Plan will fail soon.



Hyuuga clan is the 3rd strongest in the Leaf. Neji had died like Itachi as an elder brother style to protect Hinata & Naruto.

If my theory is right, Jan of 2013 will be ONE hell of an suprize.

One of the original group, the new generation dies. Pretty surprising, but at the same time not.

The plan still has not been revealed only that Naruto is the key(obvious lol)

So if Obito needs to sacrifice himself to make Madara an actual human, it stands to reason that Madara must first be sealed, or let his spirit leave the edo tensei. This means we could see a glimmer of hope turn for the worse, also that Obito could turn on Madara and try to make himself the Jinchuuriki.

One glimmer of hope is that the Raikage knows the Jinchuuriki sealing technique, or that Naruto's sage seal (revealed when he first took Kurama's power could be used to seal the ten tails inside Naruto.

Another transformation of the ten tails is coming, if this gives it more consciousness it could have the memories of the other tailed beasts and turn on Madara and Obito.

There are alot of directions the plot to go from here, glad it's not being overly predictable.

At this point, we should be very wary. Anyone can die in these next few chapters. There's an awful lot of characters out there, all at the mercy of Kishi's plans for the story.
