:bulletorange: Manga 698 :bulletorange:

Only one week left now! We've really reached the end now and I am so full of excitement and nerves to see how it all ends as well as a mix of both happiness and sadness.  Rather than recap the chapters which I missed over the past few weeks I am going to get straight into my thoughts about the last chapter because both it and the chapter that came before it were so full of intense emotions that the chapters before it were simply building up to.

  • Where do I even start!  I know that originally I wanted Sakura to wake up quickly so that she could go and help but I am really grateful that she didn't get up right away now because Sasuke and Naruto really needed that time to themselves in order to heal their relationship and really settle their issues and I'm so glad that they weren't interrupted.

  • Seeing Naruto and Sasuke's relationship from Sasuke's own perspective was probably my favorite part of the chapter because for so long, Kishi has kept so much of Sasuke's own feelings a mystery.  I mean, we have always known that deep inside Sasuke always aknowledged Naruto as his closest friend but to see it from his own view was really touching and made me fall for his character all over again, even though I had been getting so annoyed with him in previous chapters :XD:

  • Also, it's good to see that he did see team 7 as his new family, which was exactly what started his issues with them because it brought back the pain he felt after losing his family.  This will make it interesting to see how he behaves again towards Kakashi and Sakura when they arrive.  He was willing to give up his sharingan to Kakashi in order to end infinite tsukuyomi so I think that he will be more selfless and caring towards them again as well.  The taka fangirl in me also can't help wondering if he will accept them as friends too, but first things first, lol.  

  • Let me stop gushing over Sasuke now and give Naruto some attention :giggle:  I was so proud of how he fought against Sasuke with so much determination and also touched by how his persistence in taking on Kurama's as well as Sasuke's hatred and darkness paid off for him in the end.  Such a wonderful main character after all that I won't soon forget.

  • This fight between the two was so painful and rough and left them nearly dead, each now missing an arm, but to see them smiling, laughing, and bickering again was so worth it, especially to see Sasuke call Naruto usuratonkachi again :heart:

  • Prediction time now.  Will Sakura and Kakashi arrive in time to help heal them?  Does Sakura even have enough strength and chakra to heal them by herself?  One thing I know for sure, we will see infinite tsukuyomi end and all of our other favorites finally will wake up, but then what?  This is why this week is going to be such a long, hard wait full of anticipation that I can barely handle :XD:  

  • Anyway, if you haven't read 698, go read it now!  It's one of my favorites for sure and maybe it wasn't perfect for everyone but the reconciliation between Sasuke and Naruto is something us fans have all been waiting so long to see and I think Kishi did a pretty good job of it.

Now I have to fill up my week with more things to do to distract me while I wait for the last chapter so I don't go crazy :lmao:  Happy early Halloween to those who celebrate it, hope you have a fun day tomorrow :pumpkin:

Thoughts? Opinions? Predictions? :flirty: Till then :wave:

Note: I'm currently on the lookout for a new sannin/admin. If anyone is interested, please PM me.

Too bad the info about the movie spoiled the manga ending; we already know that neither of them will die.

THis chapter really was epic, while I felt that the previous ones were abit to much dragged.
The image with the lost arms was quite crass. QAQ

But I wonder how Kishimoto would like to press the "epiloque" in just one chapter...

I`m reading only chapter reviews and will read only last chapter. I just hate how the war was going from the start to the very end. The thing I hate the most right now is that its a perfect time for Sakura to shine and for Sasgay to finaly say "sorry" to her - but we all know Kishi WILL ruin that moment for her if he will add her to the scene. And the thing I dislike about that manga as a whole - its how it ALWAYS was only about Naruto (I get it he IS a main character) and Sasuke ONLY and Kakshi sometimes. Why even bother with all that team 7 and team as a family (and I mean Team 7 not just Naruto, Sasu-chan and sometimes Kakashi) bull**** if the whole manga shows how its really unimportant (they have their little oh-so-special friendship circle only for oh-so-special people) - to the very end

What does every one here think of Shueisha and Anime News Network announcing today that manga is ending in five weeks.…

First of all for my evil sasuke bashing, but after tHAT I feel soo damn prooved why I despise his arrogance SOOO much. QAQ

It´s really interesting look at this:

Sasuke: I´m going to erase all darkness, hate ect...blah becoming exactly THIS.
Me: Uh..I SEE! So if we get rid of YOU the hate and darkness will be gone too? UuU

because c´mon...the past WAS shitty like hell, but hashiram tried his best ti create a better world and got somehow stobbed by Madara and now this again...all Nations DID band together and fought all together. Give them some rest.

And how shall Sasuke take the right by claming to be the one and only victim in the whole world, when he never ever was a Jinjuuriki.
Naruto with Gaar CAN do this hokage-thing much mich better I swear! PLus Naruto has the power of the :iconhypnotoad:

You forgot to mention , how the sage of the six paths kinda supports or puts it into sasuke's head that he must cut all ties, that is the kinda hokage the sage wants!
In order, to achieve that Sasuke must Kill Naruto!
Plus, this is pretty random, but I always wondered about the sages really!?! Why mention him, if he had no contribution to the story....
I wonder how naruto will talk his way out of this one...since of course, he won't kill Sasuke....
Another thing, like is it a possibility that the manga ends differently and movies thakes on another story.... like for example.
Naruto or Sasuke dies in the manga but in the movie they are both alive...
In the trailer it did say that the movie will be something away from the original story in the manga...
Don't know, just wondering. ?

I felt the same way about when the sage brings up kagouya is from a whole nother land and when naruto asks where he says it's not important.  I was like kkkkkkaayyyyy....then why did you say it geezer? Now I really want to know ._. Also I am waaaay curious about his bro lol
