What this chapter seems to suggest is that it might not be the Uchiha who are being resurrected. You see, Sasuke didn't seem too sure about where they were "Is this the place?" It's pretty clear that Shikaku's strategy was to overwhelm Juubi's defences with Kurama's chakra and then to disconnect Obito and Madara from it, wresting control away from them. Problem is, now Juubi could go absolutely berserk, so I guess it's a case of waiting for the next phase in the plan to play out.

Well well... A curious chapter that confirms a few theories. Can't say Naruto will be too happy when he finds out their first stop. Those thieving little...

Ok lots of questions from this episode.

1) Will any of the previous kage be able to break the edo tensei like Madara did
2) will Oro utilize the edo tensei in the war
3) Does kurama have his yin chakra back now as well?
4) Now that orochimaru is using a zetsu for his body will he be able to
a) Utilize the zetsu connection for intel
b) use mokuton
c) use zetsu regen to prevent himself from needing to change hosts


I think next weeks issue will focus on the interrogation of the kages, but I would love to see Kurama/Naruto's power double and balance in the middle of the current battle

One thing I liked about this chapter is how Sasuke did exactly what Naruto did when he returned to Konoha: he jumped on top of a tall structure and just observed the village, and considered his resolve, observing how things had changed over the years.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sasuke was looking at all the villagers, how they were milling around, working, rebuilding and such thanks to Itachi's sacrifice. I reckon Sasuke's blood was quietly boiling. I can really see it from his perspective, the feeling of loss and pain, and how no-one seems to notice, or care. Makes me wonder if he's observing how the village is different because it was destroyed by Nagato, perhaps seeing that they were coping despite difficult circumstances.

Now, addressing your questions Vejsaske-san:
1) if anyone can break the edo tensei, I'd wager it's Tobirama since he was the one who created the technique. That said, he didn't do so when previously controlled by Orochimaru back in Part I, but that might have just been for plot reasons.
2) There's something strange about Orochimaru, he's acting as if he won't be doing too much, he's not seeming to take the opportunity to attack Konoha while everyone's away, perhaps waiting until he gets some new 'snakes'. Whatever the case, I think he's waiting to see what Sasuke does first.
3) Minato sealed the chakra inside himself, since it was impossible to seal all of it inside Naruto, so I'd wager he still has it, and may be able to give Kurama the other half.
4a) There were 6 Zetsu spores on Sasuke, 4 of which were used for the Kage and one to give Orochimaru a better body, meaning there is one left that Juugo is restraining
4b) It's unclear how much the Zetsu were able to tap into Mokuton, but when combined with Kurama's chakra, trees were created from them, so he might be able to harness the power, since he was utilising a lot of Senju DNA, he might also be able to use Snake Sage Mode too, since he took that power from Kabuto
4c) He might indeed be able to do that, but he might still be seeking to change hosts to acquire more jutsu. It's more about what he wants to do, than his abilities in my opinion

My main thoughts about oro using mokuton come from both obito and madara being able to use it because of the zetsu parts in their bodies
Also since the third knew sasuke, I wonder what he will have to say to him

I wonder what Minato will say to him, will he explain that the Masked Man (as he knows him) was responsible for the Uchiha clan to be targeted? I think he's the real game-changer when it comes to revelations for Sasuke.

Well this chapter was interesting, it turns out the First Hokage is a pretty awesome guy to hang out with! Also, the Sharingan is partially explained in this chapter, quite mind-blowing stuff really. That said, there still isn't a link between the Sharingan and the Byakugan... I hope that gets rectified because I'm only getting more confused about it with every explanation.

I still think Minato will still be quite a game-changer if he gets to talk more. It seems the first to explain his piece was the Third, then the Second, and now the First. I'm assuming that Minato's addition to this discussion will be important. Makes me wonder how much Minato knows of Naruto, if the chakra he placed inside him to restore the seal when it reached eight tails passed the memory back to him. That would be important as well I feel. Sasuke may get a bit mad at the mention of Naruto, but some sort of deal may be struck. We may even see a father vs. son speed fight come about.

Well Kurama says in the previous chapter that Naruto has surpassed both his parents at this point, so the Minato Naruto fight would only be difficult on an emotional level. Also, the kages still have their personas so at this point if minato finds out that Naruto has the kyuubi under control he will no doubt release the other half of the chakra. This has to be the next powerup kishi has been planning for Naruto. With the battle going the way it with Kurama half powered, the other half of his chakra will be a real game changer. Not only is his chakra halved at this point, but with the yin yang mentality it is also severely out of balance.

I always thought that Naruto's ultimate power-up would come when he gained the power of all the tailed beasts, but having a complete Kyuubi would be fun to see. I'm enjoying the Naruto/Kurama partnership, and while I think the whole "share your power with everyone!' was a cool idea, now I just want to see Naruto and Kurama really kick some ass.

Today's chapter just felt like a massive troll. JUST GET ON WITH THE EXPLANATION ALREADY!!!

Besides that though, it's very interesting to see what's going on here. Of course the Hokage would logically leap into the fray if they could, but Orochimaru's control is too much for... most of them. We do get to see a taste of Hashirama's power though, it's not surprising that the man who pretty much every evil genius still alive has stolen some DNA from can do better.

It also seems like Hashirama is the only one who can understand the true importance of this interview that's been setup. Everyone else is just eager to see what the heck is going on out there. It would be funny to see if Minato could actually use old Kunai with the Hiraisin No Jutsu tags on them to just teleport out of his grasp, but I doubt that can happen.

I did like the transition to Hashirama's and Madara's fight though, should be interesting to see what there is to be said.

I like that oro told them he would let them go fight if sasuke chooses, could be an interesting twist on the battle with the 10 tails. I actually would not be surprised if we ended up seeing a battle between just the first and the other three either.I like that Minato realized about Naruto...gotta wonder if Hiruzen will as well. It's possible Hashirama already has also. I really like this little break from the main battle, I just hope kishi doesn't end up fast forwarding the battle like he did last time there was a break.

Orochimaru has yet again surpass Kabuto in the Edo Jutsu, by taking over an Zetsu body which give the user an boost in power. 2nd Hokage remind of Vegeta along with the 1st Hokage remind me of Goku.

2nd Hokage put the village before anyone. Orochimaru & Sasuke has reveal how strong 2nd Hokage is. 1st Hokage is too much for Orochimaru to control.

You can use my powers to gain the advantage on others, but you can't use my own power against me. xD

I want to learn more from the 1st Hokage & 2nd Hokage. How did they really die tho. The past always have something that the future needs.

Since Orochimaru have an better body, and his use of his hands again. He might not need to go after Sasuke again. Cause Orochimaru may end up losing yet again. Even if he had an advantage with an Zetsu body.

I thought the Second Hokage sacrificed himself so others including Sarutobi could live on? It seems pretty clear he went into a fight he couldn't win, and died bravely in the Will of Fire.

Back a few chapters, the Juubi developed hands in order to attack the Shinobi Alliance forces. Each hand had their own panel, and I high-fived each one, just because. This chapter, there's a summoning with way too many hands to do that with. It would take me two hours, three computer screens, and six replacement hands in order to do it.

This chapter was really rather boring for me. A more in depth recap of the battle from long ago...and a chibi scene at the end. I really hope next chapter shows what the point in this one was....feels like filler
