man I hope the second does some awesome stuff in battle. He has been so far so underwhelming and the way he died was really disappointing and this is made worse how every chance the story gets, his older brother is praised and made out to be a god-like. yeah, the story is setting up familiarity between naruto, sasuke, madara and hasimara but even though hasimara and madara lost family, their resolve is still positive so I am guessing what ever the critical point is going to be, it is going to have to be a pretty big deal that will personally impact on sasuke

I'd love to see what Minato gets up to. So far, it's unclear whether he remembers saving Naruto when his seal deteriorated to allow Kurama to reach eight tails. He definitely has some interesting stuff to say, and he may state the fact that the Masked Man (who we now know is Obito) was responsible for Kurama's attack and for Hiruzen to confirm that this put the Uchiha under the suspicious spotlight and triggered the whole thing in the process. If nothing else other than a savage beating from Naruto, this will help Sasuke see sense.

Young Madara has experienced a lot of loss already, three of his four brothers all dead. This shows that he held on tight to Izuna, and that losing him finally sent him over the edge. The question is, did he take his eyes forcefully, or did Izuna willingly surrender them? We also see how Hashirama was beginning to build his resolve to put an end to the constant conflict that only saw death. Madara is sharing the same beliefs as him, which shows he genuinely felt the same once, but has since been lost to corruption. If there was any way to make me feel sorry for this crazy bastard, it's showing how he fell from grace.

Huh, I didn't notice your post just before mine, contagious. Oh well, it can still work.

oh man I completely forgot about minato lol. Pretty much from what you said about Obito all makes sense Slaschur, I think that Madara (or at least some other uchiha) will be exposed for being behind Kakashi killing Rin (but probably Madara because it fits into his plan) It all ends up coming full circle and might make sasuke realise how badly he has been manipulated into seeing things the wrong way and that when it comes down to it, it is the Uchihas fault all the bad things that happened to him did. I want to make a prediction about how the sharingan itself will be the catalyst for turning Madara into an ass, but I am a bit hesitant because all I have to base that off is Tobimara saying that the eyes are cursed, that apparently loosing his own family only strengthened his positive resolve and I have no idea how it would actually happen Oh yeah, and I wonder if the similarities between Zetsu and Itama mean anything

Hmm... those are some interesting thoughts you have there.

I don't understand Tobirama's plan too much, but I know he had good intentions and in all honesty, it was Obito's attack that made bad things come out of it. Sasuke might realise, but there's definitely a reason he continues to power Sasuke up roughly in parallel with Naruto all throughout the series. But how can he make it all fall into place...

It's very interesting the similarity between Zetsu and Itama now, but something tells me it's more of a coincidence. His hair looks like it's half Hashirama's and half Tobirama's, so his own hair took on a hybrid of his parent's hair. All Madara knows about Itama is that Hashirama lost a brother, not much else to go on. That said, there's always a possibility so I won't rule it out. Kishi can pull just about any stunt with this story and take us by surprise.

I hate having to wait for new chapters for answers I remember when the allied shinobi forces showed up to fight madara and obito and I thought that all of this would be concluding soon. Man I was wrong, there are still so many things that need answers and everyone is coming back from the dead left right and centre to answer them. In other manga and anime when people are brought back to life by some loophole, it usually kind of sucks and makes you wonder what was even the point in the first place. The fear of them losing disappears and everything loses momentum but for this manga I have been able to forgive it because there are so many people involved in the story that were from earlier periods that really could be the only ones to have the answers......but it is still a bit silly how everyone is just flippantly brought back to life.

I know it wont mean anything and really it makes sense for zetsu to end up looking as itama did if he is made from the genes of one of his brothers but still, I hate when someone is designed to stick out and then when someone looks exactly like them shows up, it isn't even touched on. Then again, it is a flashback that only the reader can see

Chapter 622.

I enjoy to learn that Madara had other brothers than Izuna. Izuna could've been the youngest in the family. Which could explain that Madara was able to form an bond with Izuna. I also enjoy how 1st Hokage Hashirama Senju & Tobirama Senju had an 3rd brother Itama.

Hashirama, Tobirama Itama's father remind me of King Vegeta. Sending their offspring into war. To gain advantage over the enemy.

Sad how 5 Uchiha killed Itama without giving one ounce of pity. I know that once Hashirama & Tobirama find out who killed their little brother. By losing Itama, Hashirama may have lost his control which could be where he may unlock his wood jutsu powers.

Ya. I always knew that Zetsu was part of 1st Hokage & Madara personality/power. But looking at Itama, Made me wonder Kishi drew Zetsu based on Itama.

I hope we learn bout the Humid Bone Forest. I'm glad to see that there is an clan that is more dangerous than Uchiha. Which is the Hagoromo Clan.

My only thoughts for this chapter, since the rest isn't much of a surprise is we have the Uchiha and the Senju thinking very much alike, take Madara Ackbar and Admiral Senju for example, both warning each other about the same danger.

What can you tell us that we've missed, DarkOne?

Chapter 623.

Well there is more than 1 way how the manga will turn out each week.

All I will say is that. I expected no less from Tobirama spying on Hashirama. Same as Izuna spied on Madara. In times of war. This would happen at random times, which make you suspect your fellow clan members oath.

Ii wouldn't be suprize if Madara knew which clan Hashirama belong too. I think Madara didn't want to reveal the truth cause that would ruin their friendship which they have created, and ruin what future plan they stated they would form.

Tobirama & Butsuma vs Izuna & Tajima

I've notice something in this chapter tho.

Uchiha Madara & Senju Hashirama is the older brothers. Uchiha Izuna & Senju Tobirama is the youngest brothers. Which mean that Uchiha Izuna & Senju Tobirama will foreshadow how powerful they are. Like Sage, choice the younger brother than the older brother.

Which mean that we may end up learning of what they are capable of doing.

I wonder when Kishimoto will reveal the Namikaze Clan tho.

Doesn't it ever get boring knowing what will happen next? It's not like that for the Anime, because by the time it animates a chapter, I've forgotten a lot of details about it so it's a pleasant surprise to see it again. Also, seeing it animated helps me understand things better. Sometimes still I don't quite understand what's going on through simple still images.

Anyway, I wouldn't at all be surprised if the situation between Madara and Hashirama was completely mirrored for the time being. It seems like they were both given a talk by their concerned fathers, told about the other's clan affinity, but both decided to warn each other about a trap. I'd be insanely surprised if Madara didn't realise Hashirama was a Senju.

I'd say more details about the Namikaze clan will be revealed through what Minato says. My guess is, he would need to convey a lot of important information in regards to them about certain things. It really depends on Sasuke's questions, in my opinion. Sasuke may be blind and misled at times, but he's no fool when it comes to passing up opportunities.

To be honest speaking. I just read the manga. I forget things at times which anime help me out. Which then I notice something elst that could've been there at the same time. To prolong the war or help the alliance or so.

Well few weeks ago. I've talked to an friend from the UK. We stated that we learn alot bout the 2nd3rd4th war, along with Madara & Hashirama. But Kishi 'foreshadow' Izuna & Tobirama in this whole time. And we thought what would it been like in the era. When Madara & Hashirama living in. How harsh was the war. Who did they fight? How powerful were they compare to the current war.

Then we came up with. In other to start a new story. We need to reveal it around the time everyone was alive. 99% of people that I talk wanted to see if Hashirama & Tobirama had an brother or sister while growing up. As Senju, Uchiha, Hyuuga, Namikaze. how powerful were they in the past to the current time.

It does get boring when you want to learn more bout someone or an event that happen. But Kishimoto skip it to other things.

Kishimoto mirrored his manga based on these. Friendship, Love, Rival, Hatred.

Well I finished the new Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Let just say the ending of the game. Would give you an hint on how everything will faill into pieces.

I see what you mean about different possible endings. I watched the ending to the game, and it was very different from how it all played out. I think in this instance kishi needed to be able to give a story to the game developers early on, but still not have any spoilers. At this point the manga really isn't that far ahead of the anime, so I think that if the next naruto game is in development, the developers have a rough idea of how things will happen, but it will change before it hits the manga.

I'd hate it if Naruto had different endings, with no clear true ending. It started out in a specific way, all events so far have been very specific, so why on Earth would there be a non-specific ending? In terms of what Kishi can do to bring the story to the end though, there are still lots of different ways he can take it, even at this very late stage in the story. I just hope it's one path, and that it's what he feels is right, not what the fans want.

Ya, it's like the Generation Game. The game had an 'bonus' which was an tiny clip of Madara vs 1st Hokage. And people took that as credit like it would end up like that. But truth is tho. Kishi can edit things at any time of the week which can shift the story to anything.

I give the game creator credit for that tho. That was ONE hell of an ending tho. But they didn't add Jiraya or 1st,2nd3rd former Hokages at the end tho.

Also there won't be an chapter this week tho.

Indeed, the final boss fight looked both difficult and extremely epic.
