Naruto 670 see’s Naruto waking up in his inner world to meet an old man who calls himself Hagoromo Otsutsuki to which Naruto has no knowledge of who he is. He reveals himself as the Sage of Six Paths and also reveals that his two sons, Ashura and Indra were both very different. He shocks Naruto by telling him that his younger son, Ashura has been reincarnated in Naruto!
Naruto 670 begins as Naruto wakes up in his inner world asking himself if he has died. A man there begins to talk about how his ethical point of view towards death greatly differs from his own and the era they’re in. Naruto asks who he is, to which the old many reveals that by telling him his name it may influence his thoughts and opinions.
He reveals himself as the creator of Peace, Law and Order, he is known at Hagoromo Otsutsuki. Naruto is confused and doesn’t know who he is. Hagoromo mentions that he can already tell using his face that he had anticipated this. Naruto tells him that he doesn’t know him or what he’s talking about.
Naruto quickly notices his eyes are the Rinnegan, Hagoromo tells him that instead of looking at others he should look at himself. He tells him that he’s in his inner world and that he knows why he’s in such a hurry, plus it’s best if they currently were to be idle for the time being.
Naruto shouts at him yelling for him to start talking. Hagoromo tells him that he’s an oddity of time, time has flowed past him, everything has changed. He’s journey across time to meet him. Naruto shouts telling him that he doesn’t have time to listen to some old weirdo. Hagoromo mentions that Naruto needs words which currently won’t have any affect on him.
Hagoromo mentions that he will speak plainly so Naruto understands. Naruto calls him an alien. Hagoromo responds that he’s not too far off from that. Hagoromo mentions that he hadn’t thought that talking with one another would prove so difficult. Naruto mentions that the way he’s talking is fine, it’s just that the way he talks startled him.
Hagoromo begins to by next talking like Bee, to which it creeps out Naruto. Naruto tells him to leave a bit of the complexity in so he doesn’t sound like an idiot. Hagoromo then takes that in offence as he called him an idiot. Hagoromo gets the perfect dialect and begins to talk, as approved by Naruto.
Naruto first asks for his help as he’s trying to get out of it. Hagoromo tells him that he’s someone who died a long time ago and is someone who exists as pure chakra, he’s traveled across time to witness what has and will become of Ninshuu (meaning Ninja religion or teachings) he mentions.
He then reveals himself as the Sage of Six Paths to which Naruto is shocked that Jiraiya and Nagato talked about him. Hagoromo mentions that he does know of him. Naruto mentions that he’s the person who created Ninjutsu. Hagoromo mentions that he did not create Ninjutsu, he created Ninshuu. It was created to inspire hope while Ninjutsu was created for war.
Naruto mentions if he really is the Sage then there are a ton of questions he must know of. Hagoromo touches the water and a figure appears below Naruto to which he mentions that Naruto is Hagoromo’s own son Ashura! Hagoromo mentions that the time is right and there is something that he must entrust onto him.
Naruto mentions that he needs to get out of there and help others. Hagoromo mentions that there is nothing he can do at this point, and depends on the people outside, he can only tell him things. Thus worrying won’t help him. Hagoromo tells him that he must listen to him as he needs to be told something.
He begins to tell us about his mother, Kaguya Otsutsuki came to their lands a very long time ago, she came to pluck the fruit of the sacred tree. With that power she ruled over the land, Naruto asks where she came from to which Hagoromo mentions it’s not important. She is also the strongest and most powerful than anyone.
The people either called her mother of the rabbit goddess of the demon. She had two children of which one was Hagoromo. In order to repent for the remaining sins of their mother, they both fought the reincarnated tree as the Ten Tails. The tree struggled to reclaim the chakra and it’s chakra was absorbed by both brothers.
As time went on he also had two children, named Indra and Ashura. He taught both of them Ninshuu. However there was a huge difference between the two in power. Indra was the superior brother and had stronger genes while Ashura was the flunky useless dropout. Hagoromo then mentions that no matter how superior or excellent the parents are, that power won’t necessarily be inherited by the child.
Naruto is somewhat told that he never inherited any of their powers. Naruto knew that he was talking about him. Hagoromo mentions that he resembles him of Ashura with what he’s done too. Indra and Ashura walked very different paths. Indra had the powerful eyes and strong sense for battle, he was also a genius. He did everything with his own power and understood his own power.
While Ashura was the opposite, he was bad at everything while to achieve the same strength of his brother, he needed huge amounts of his own effort along with the cooperation of those around him. Through harsh training the chakra inside his body bloomed and found himself on the same level.
He also understood that everyone working together to help him is what made him strong. He came to understand what it meant to care and realized with love anything was possible. Through the way Ashura lived his own life, he also began to realize new possibilities. He divided his own power of the Ten Tails that was inside of him gave them names.
He believed that the bonds of cooperation were where true power lay. He also made Ashura the leader of Ninshuu so that he could guide everyone, he thought that Indra would also join but that did not work out. Indra would not accept this and thus war had begun.
When their bodies were destroyed, the chakra that they built up didn’t disappear, but was thought as reborn through ages time and time again. Naruto thinks this is disgusting, he then asks who is the unlucky guy being possessed by him now, Hagoromo mentions that it is him. Ashura was reborn into him. Naruto is shocked. Naruto 670 ends here.
A fantastic chapter and did not see this coming, it was somewhat a surprise to see both of them talking. And it’s fantastic to finally see how Naruto is connected to the Sage of Six Paths, he is not his reincarnation but in Ashura’s which is also pretty close to him. Nevertheless it is a great chapter and I can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 671, it’s going to be epic!
