A relatively short post today (partially because this chapter was lacking in discussion material but mainly because I’m far more interested in the post for the following chapter XD). So, let’s dispense with this thing quickly desho?
Madara leaves the Hokages to ponder his grim ultimatum. After unanimously deciding that they can’t trust Danzou as far as they can throw him-with the exception of the Raikage of course, I imagine he could toss his geriatric ass around as if it were a mere pebble-the council, or rather Gaara, decided to relay the message of the New World Shinobi Alliance to Konoha via “a Konoha shinobi whom [they] trust”. Now, when you mention trustworthy Konoha shinobi, only one name comes to mind; a true warrior of great skill and admirable rank, always consistent, very dutiful and loyal to a fault. You know him, you love him, he’s been there from the very beginning! I’m talking about the one and only………….…UMINO IRUKA!!! XD Nah I’m just kidding, who else but Hatake Kakashi (or as Gaara referred to him: “Sharingan no Kakashi”).
Okay so that’s settled, now, how on earth does one fight against an angry Uchiha with a pet shop of dangerous biju at his command? Well our resident levitating senior citizen the Tsuchikage has an idea I think is most fitting of the crazy warmongering old fart. ‘I reckon we use them there jinchuriki we got and throw ‘em at the bad guys! Yup yup’ bellows the floating geriatric (I’m paraphrasing slightly of course but you get the gist ne?); well the once reticent Gaara once again holds his ground by voicing his refusal of this obviously reckless idea (you know, I am getting to like this guy more and more since the time skip ^.^).
With the approval of all of the other Kages, the Tsuchikage’s philistine plan was easily squelched; all problems taken care of right? WRONG! Timid, Seven Swordsman member Choujuro decides to meekly bring up the issue of one of his fellow members Kisame. Our shark-toothed peach boy proceeds to inform the members of the council of Kisame’s beast-like chakra levels (a fact which the audience has been well aware of for quite some time now) and how preventing him from getting to Killerbee would be their top priority. No problem, they have time right? CHIGAU!!!
Cut to a non-descript forest. Bee stands before a mystical Enka master and his GIGANTIC BEAR (seriously, wtf?) training in the great ninja art of….singing the Japanese equivalent of Country Western music. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) his practice session is cut short as who should show up but Mr. Ghost Shark himself. Manga reader, I’d like you to meet my friend Cliff, Cliff Hanger. He’ll be taking your manga away now, kthnxbye.
Now, I’d love to point out the arrival of Sakura and her team at Naruto’s location and the portentous significance of her arrival…but let’s just save all of that RAGEHATE enthusiasm for the next post okay?
Aspire towards Nirvana, fellow manga readers!
