:bulletorange: Manga 699/700 :bulletorange:



Wow, it's been a whole week now since Naruto ended and the feelings and emotions have been mixed.  It was a little sad to know that there would be no new chapter this week and so I find myself already looking forward to the miniseries in the spring.  One thing is for sure, the manga may be over but with movies and even musicals planned, it won't be the end of the story and the characters we have grown to love so much! :wow:

Back to the actual chapters themselves, there were parts to touch your heart and make you teary-eyed, weird confusing moments, and also a few dissapointments.  Overall, I haven't lost my love for the series though and feel grateful to have stuck with it to the end, even if it was not the ending that I had wanted to see in some aspects.

We finally got to see Sasuke repair his bonds with all of team 7, Naruto finally achieve his lifelong dream, and then we got to see their future families and their cute children.  Pairings and children everwhere in 700 :giggle: And what was up with Gaara's hair? :faint:

Some questions still remain though, like what on earth happened to Orochimaru and Taka?  Also, Yamato, we got to see him wake up from infinite tsukuyomi but then that was it, hmm, I wonder if the upcoming movie or the new manga series will answer any of questions left hanging.  

Overall, I'm so grateful to have met so many wonderful people through loving this manga and am eager to hear everyone's different opinions.  I hope to plan more contests, activities, and discussions here to keep this place active beyond the end of the manga :dance:

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

Uhh way too late but better than never. QAQ

The 700th chapter really was funny, odd and homehow surprizing. Pretty hefty how opinion are driven that differently. Ô___o
I´m somehow in the "inbetween section"....the pairing are somehow expected (Sakura-Sauke, Naruto-Hinata, Shika-Tema) Otherwise is DID surprised me that Sasuke actually DID got a human being as a partner...sorry but him being "reintegrated" happened abit to fast for me..okay Sasuke still wanders off here and ther to clear his sins..which makes things even weirder...but whan shall I even supposed to understand him.

Saradu is somehow a reversed Karin, did anyone else noticed this too?

But I LOVE the Uzumaki family..although someone wrote, why Naruto didn´t simply used a Kage Bunshin for spending time for his son Borodu (Bold). That´s really resonable, especially since we all know how well used Naruto is by doing this. BUt also by knowing that Naruto shouldn´t be supposed to let his own son suffer somehow the same loneliness(SP???)...even with living parents. But the daughter is cute fo sure. ^///^

Yeah most important for me: Kanky was NOT skipped/killed. Super wohoo of that day yeah!!!!!!
His outfit surely is abit unusual for the eyes. Otherwise do I really like his face-paint. It´s again closer to the first Kabuki-ish paint, which I think shall be supposted to look like from the beginning on. He´s the perfect fusion of Kabuki and Bunraku (both Japan´s theatre styles).
OMG but poor Gaara´s hair. :lmao: XDDDDDD

Well than...maybe the minisequals about the children will give us a deeper insight what just happened between the pffff 10-12 years?

I hope Sakura made Sasuke suffer like he never suffereded before and humiliated him like never was humiliated before. After evething he did and told to her his pathetic "sorry" is NOT enouth. It will be a shame if she actualy just answered "yes".

But i`m still happy about her getting the man of her dreams who she loved deeply from the very beginning. And I`m happy to have yet another reason to troll Sakura haters.

Why would you troll us? I am happy she ended up with Sasuke, Naruto found a girl who loves him for his good qualities not for how many times he nearly has to die and lose limbs.

I agree, seeing Sasuke's pov about his friendship with Naruto made my day. He finally admitted it. And he even laughed and smiled, and seems pretty darn right calm. After seeing him so stoic and "I'll kill everyone" it's kind of hard to see this new demeanor of his (even if it only lasts for this moment).

This is why I am so curious to see how he will react when Kakashi and Sakura find the two of them (if that is how it happens), will he still be so open with his feelings around them as well?  It could be weird, interesting, and touching all at the same time, lol

Also Kakashi as hokage was spoiled, even though Obito had hinted at it :lmao: But we still need to see Naruto as hokage so from what I've heard the epilogue will be a timeskip into the future and the movie will fill in the blanks in between.

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...

:iconpurplegeisha:
PurpleGeisha Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
It was shocking seeing Naruto and Sasuke each missing an arm and all the blood but it kind of made me laugh a little at the same time, just because it's so like Kishi to end a chapter so dramatically like that :giggle:
 
699 and 700 both come out on the same day, I think it will be around 40 pages in all, so I'm hoping Kishi should be able to show us everyone's future in a satisfying way with the movie filling in the rest of the blanks.  I bet he will show Gaara's future and maybe Temari's with Shikamaru but will still forget about poor Kankuro, lol, hope I'm wrong though :XD:

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 I'm a little annoyed at myself is that even in the movie coming up soon it looks like Sakura will just be a side character again.  Don't get me wrong, I am a big Hinata fan as well as a Sakura fan and I would love to see her and the Hyuuga get more attention but it looks like she is only there for pairing tease so all in all, the side characters don't really get the attention they deserve even now :(

I don`t like Hinata character mostly because of her psycho fans (have nothing against normal fans).

And I know about the movie- a greatest dissapontment to come. Anime/movies creators loves to do good things only for Hinata (talking only about fem characters here). And I left with a feeling new movie will be full of pro-Hinata bullsh*t.

All in one about movies and series - I wasted a little time on them because of their concentration on nearly every other character (other then Naruto and Sasu-chan) but Sakura.

She in not the best created character and for sure not my most favored character. All other my fav characters are killed off and Sakura was the only hope for me here.

I`m actually ready to make a bet here :) If Kishi will NOT ruin Sakura in chapters to come and she will be an important part in the last movie - I will drink the remaining water from the bowl of my dog, make a video and add it to my youtube channel.

PS I was always asking myself. Why Kishi bash that character so much? Make her look unimportant and unneeded? Is she not part of team 7?

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 blahh..by 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:
C´mon..it MUST work. XDDDDDDD

Spoiler*
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 brother...like 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 can't wait for more info and images from the last, since Naruto will not be hokage at the end of the manga and Kakashi is hokage in that movie, then it does seem like the movie (and whatever may come after it) will be the real end of the series.

I just don't get why Kishi would hype Naruto vs. Sasuke so much if it was never going to happen, unless it was to make it that much more surprising when they finally joined up as a team again.  I'm glad the manga is going to end soon as well, though of course I'll miss reading a new chapter every week.

if Kakashi became 6 the Hokage then then Naruto series must going forward.

It does that mean new Naruto has started aftwards

i need to say this....
i read some where...it was a post ...in 2013 ....that kishi announced he was going to end the series in 2014 and it also said that he said he always thought of Sasuke being the Hokage!!!
now this weeks manga...even though short and only of 18 pages....shows obito communicated with Kakashi from the dead and telling him, that he told naruto to be the seventh Hokahe and he told Kakashi to be the sixth....i personally never thought Kakasi as the Hokage type....To be honest I never thought sasuke as the hokage type either, but revealing this shows that sasuke becoming Hokage is trully a possibility....
another thing i heard "THE LAST" will come out in october!!! so logically THE LAST means THE LAST , so i am thinking Naruto will end before or within october....
 i just hope it doesnt disappoint ....i have been a fan for like seven years and to have an ending that would leave us dissappointed and adding to , i dont think he would ever continue it so it would be really sad, not to have a good ending....
Hope Mr.Kishimoto understands what his fans are expecting from him.....
he even said in the 2013 announcement he made that he has it clear in his head what he wants the ending to be ....so i am kinda excited plus scared!!!
sorry for the spoiler^^'

Kakashi (or even Sasuke) being hokage after the war confuses me a little, because now I wonder if the ending will skip into the future when Naruto is hokage, but the last movie is going to be set only two years after and also be an ending to the series?  Either way I am excited for this movie, I just think it will be weird if Kishi has been hyping Naruto becoing hokage since the beginning of the manga and it ends with someone else as hokage.

Did I see Obito's face when he tells Naruto to absolutely become Hokage somewhere before?
Maybe Naruto did that same exact expression before? Is it a parallel between he two?

Anyway, I did like the chapter by itself; I still don't like how the story arrived to this point. It's like seeing traces of what you really liked in the past, but mixed with many other things that you don't like.  :(

And the Obito-part is quite a depressing one...somehow like Snape...in another way...
