Naruto 627 doesn’t leave us hanging as it properly illustrates what will be the most exciting thing to happen in Naruto. Sasuke finally chooses what he’s going to do, which is to leave with Hashirama’s story and decide to join the fight, he won’t let his brother’s or village’s efforts go to waste. Orochimaru also gives the Hokage’s full control to which they’ll go to help defeat Madara.
Naruto 533 begins with Sasuke repeating Hashirama’s meaning of what a Shinobi is, Hashirama’s goal was to build the village but Madara found another way, to which he can erase the shinobi world. Sasuke tells him that it’s the Infinite Tsukuyomi which will use his Genjutsu to which he will be able to control what ever he likes after getting everyone’s control.
What Itachi, Madara’s brother and Hashirama tried to protect will turn into nothing, everyone notices Sasuke’s just said. Itachi was the one who inherited his will despite never having heard about it from him. He endured far more than he did and died a proud shinobi of the leaf. It’s ironic that in the end, the one shinobi that understood Hashirama was a Uchiha.
Tobirama also goes on to mention that it wasn’t just his brother, there were some subordinates which he had which were there to protect the village, for example Kagami Uchiha. Sasuke asks if he didn’t hate the Uchiha. Tobirama mentions that this is not completely true, he simple thought that they should be careful of clans that pose a danger to the village, the Uchiha were this.
It’s true that they were very devoted, there were also many just like his brother which surpassed the boundaries of their clan for their village. Hashirama thought that the village would break the boundaries of this, but it wasn’t that simple, Hashirama was too soft, his role as the Second Hokage was toe mediate between them while protecting and reinforcing the village.
Hiruzen mentions that Kagami’s son, Shisui Uchiha was also a friend of Itachi, he was the same which inherited the will. However, Hiruzen blames himself for letting Danzo’s darkness take care of a part of the village. Sasuke mentions that he had killed Danzo for his revenge, he declared that he was also just protecting the village. Hiruzen mentions that all he did was make mistakes.
Minato steps in to tell him that it’s not his fault, he did a great job, he died when Kurama attacked, he also had high hopes for Minato, however after he died this fell short. Orochimaru mentions that he left Orochimaru out in order to choose Minato. Suigetsu asks if Orochimaru’s sulking, he mentions that yeah since they’re in front of the third. Minato mentions that if he had lived, he would have stopped the Uchiha force.
Orochimaru asks Sasuke what he’s going to do, will he be destroying the village or do something else. Sasuke remembers the last words from Itachi, at the end he chooses to go to the battlefield, he won’t let the village and his brother’s efforts go to waste. Hashirama agrees then tells Tobirama to prepare to fly outside.
Tobirama mentions that they’re still bound, Orochimaru is asked what he’ll do, he prepares to follow Sasuke and at this point, he’ll give them their control back. Suigetsu mentions that he’s surrounded by idiots, he needs a way to escape. They get outside, Hashirama likes what he sees, Suigetsu goes for the run when Karin appears, she detected Sasuke’s chakra and followed.
Orochimaru asks if Sasuke’s still her soft spot, she gives Sasuke a hug, Suigetsu judges and mentions that their forces will definitely surprise Madara. Hiruzen asks why he is cooperating with Sasuke, while he was inside Kabuto he realized that when he was copied it was a bad choice from him. He’s just interested in Sasuke’s different path, unlike Kabuto, Sasuke didn’t try to imitate him, thus he’s interested.
The Hokage’s get up and go to their faces, Minato mentions that he can finally meet Naruto, this time he will be able to make up for everything he wasn’t able to do as a father, he’ll also bring him a big present. Hiruzen mentions that it’s his big fight in a while, he’ll have to stay focused. Tobirama mentions that this time he’ll definitely crush him. Hashirama mentions that he’s excited to meet his long time friend.
Every era has its battles, but this will be the last war, mentions Hashirama when Hiruzen and Minato land on their faces. He also shouts for them to quickly go after Hashirama and Tobirama land on their faces. The strongest soldiers have finally arrived and ready! Naruto 627 ends here.
What a fantastic chapter, they’re finally ready to go to the battlefield, however it’s most likely that it will take a few more chapters until they finally reach the amazing battlefield. It’s also most likely that they’ll reach there while Naruto and the others are at the end of their lives. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 628 when we see more awesomeness!
