Finally, the identity of the mysterious barefoot person is revealed
aaaaaand it's pretty much exactly who most of us expected it to be
- It is indeed Kabuto, coming to revive Sasuke after all. The visual of him healing Sasuke with his snake-phallic looking stomach attachment, whatever it is was is beyond awkward, but whatever.
- Even Karin doesn't even recognize Kabuto anymore in his current form, but thanks to the power of Itachi's izanami, Kabuto was able to accept himself and realize where he really belongs. He also gets paralleled with Obito which is appropriate given that both he and Obito are now going to gain some redemption by saving the lives of Naruto and Sasuke.
- Suigetsu's comment about Kabuto absorbing Sasuke and becoming a "Kabuke or a Sasuto" is just another reason why he is one of my favorites. Also, I like how tender and protective Karin is being over Sasuke, I enjoy seeing this different side of her personality.
- Back to Madara, it seems that only taijutsu and senjutsu attacks will be effective against him, so with Minato missing an arm that means Gai to the rescue! However, Rock Lee in turn ends up being the one to come and rescue Gai and I always love when Gaara and Lee are in the same area and one or the other reacts to the other's presence, not for shipping reasons but because it makes me nostalgic XD
- Oh, I bet Tenten is checking on those important tools Madara oh so conveniently dropped in front of her. Still hope it leads to her getting an awesome moment sometime soon.
- Is Gai seriously going to die? I am in denial, I don't want him to go just yet, first Neji and now him too? I am curious though to see him release the eighth gate and become a red beast...
This was a pretty good chapter, nice and well-balanced. The next one should be exciting.
Note: I'm currently on the lookout for a new sannin/admin. If anyone is interested, please PM me.
