Itachi also mentions that he’s about to activate his technique Izanami to which he’ll use on Kabuto. Continue reading
Itachi Uchiha, personally one of the greatest Uchiha’s. In his brothers, Sasuke, eyes he seems like one who abandoned the village as well as killing their own family. However after learning from Tobi, he opened his own eyes as well as had even more questions to Itachi’s decisions which after the latest Naruto episode, we’ll see a lot more about their relationship as brother fighting together to defeat Kabuto. I know it’s going to be an epic fight, which you’ll just have to wait and see. Continue reading

He also mentions that he’s been to meet the White Snake Sage, however Sasuke and Itachi use an old technique to trap and attack Kabuto which seems to have worked. Meanwhile it seems that Kabuto may have already fallen for Itachi’s technique. Continue reading
Naruto Shippuden 332 shows the truth to why Madara has Hashirama’s abilities, in fact it’s due to him having Hashirama’s face as well as cells giving him the ability to use his jutsu’s. The Kage’s keep on fighting Madara Uchiha only to keep getting pushed down more and more. Sasuke somehow meets Itachi during his way to the battlefield, from this he tells Itachi that what he did was wrong, and that he should have been killed.

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!
Sasuke’s absolute hate has gone past normal, it’s on a level to which he has the ability to tear down the walls of any village and infiltrate to destroy it. There is one person who can stop him, that being Naruto. Sasuke thought process from the very start has been flawed, his mission to get his revenge on his brother, Itachi, drove him to many dark places, even to Tobi who promised to Itachi that he will bring no harm to him.
This absolutely amazing image of Sasuke Uchiha shows how art can truly be at it’s finest! The artist, kivi1230 who drew such a fantastic piece of fan art has done a magnificent job of creating the hatred Sasuke had during his battle with Danzo. This feature is also a small present towards the author as their late present.
Sasuke and Itachi from the Uchiha Clan have gone through quite a lot in order to find what their callings are. Itachi, as mentioned by Hiruzen to Sasuke, he was ordered to eliminate his whole clan in order to prevent a war between the Leaf and Uchiha Clan! Sasuke confirms this in the latest manga. He may also genuinely want to destroy and make the Leaf pay for this cruel fate for his brother Itachi!
The incredible image above was drawn by SatokoChaaan who dedicates it to her fiancée for his birthday. He asked her for an awesome image with Itachi, Sasuke and Hinata, as seen in the above image. She’s done a great job of putting it all together even with the Susanoo, notice that the hands have 6 fingers and 1 thumb. So if you like this work from her, I suggest you check her other fan art!
Naruto Shippuden 299 brings another fantastic episode as well as an end and a beginning to their quest. Itachi is fully able to neutralize Nagato as well as seal him, Naruto is also told by Itachi that with great power comes great responsibility. We find out that Itachi’s mission is to bring Kabuto down as well as stop the Edo Tensei. Kabuto gets ready to bring out his trump card to show us someone that will definitely be ruthless in the war!
Naruto Shippuden 299 continues from last week’s episode as Naruto’s been captured and trying to escape. Nagato who’s fully under the Edo Tensei has captured Naruto and is trying to pull out Naruto’s Soul, he notices that he’s not seen this jutsu before. He counts that Nagato has many jutsu. Then uses his Rasengan, to which Nagato absorbs, he notices that he’s previously confirmed that he can absorb.
Nagato enables his Jigokudo which Naruto remembers as being his revive jutsu. Kabuto finds out that he can take out Naruto’s soul, hide his body and bring him to life later on with his control, all this without Tobi finding out. Nagato keeps on pulling while Naruto keeps on pulling also. He keeps on losing power at this point.
Bee keeps on getting closer to them when he’s above them, the animals notices him, and as he gets to attacking rage, Nagato captured and stops him without moving. He uses his body to stop him, Nagato’s arm changes into a gun type machine which gets closer to his face, it charges and gets closer to attacking. At this point, Itachi’s Susanoo appears and it cuts off Nagato’s arms. We notice that the animals eyes has been damaged by shuriken. Naruto and Bee are held by the Susanoo.
Naruto and Bee thank Itachi. Nagato gets up while his arms repair. Kabuto thinks of another plan to which he can use. He thinks about the justu which makes a small planet. When Nagato’s arm is repaired, he enables his Planetary Devastation Jutsu which destroys the ground and makes a small black whole type object which sucks a lot of the ground.
Naruto mentions that it’s a jutsu which cannot be gone against as they would die instantly. Itachi tells Naruto if it’s such a deadly jutsu, why didn’t it kill Naruto. He has one of those stupid Naruto moments. Bee laughs, Itachi tells them that to every jutsu there is always a negative aspect. He quickly comes up that they need to shoot at the middle point to destroy it.
Itachi quickly enables his Susanoo and uses his Yasaka Beads, Bee uses his Bijuu Dama and Naruto launches his Rasen Shuriken. It creates a large explosion to which destroys a lot of the landscape. Although Nagato is far enough to not get too damaged. Once the smoke disappears, we quickly notices that Nagato stands, at one point, he’s quickly attacked by Itachi’s Susanoo!
It bring Nagato back, the smoke clears and he’s able to see them. He says that he’s sorry for doing all this. Itachi notices that he’s back, he tells him that it’s the Totsuka Blade. We go to a past moment when Orochimaru appeared, and was attacked and sealed away, however he escaped during Sasuke and Itachi’s fight. The sword is helpful when sealing away things.
Nagato looks at Naruto telling him that he’s the third and final novel of the collection, the first being Jiraiya, the second being Nagato himself, who was a failure and the third being Naruto when he’ll be able to finish the books with such a spectacle! He also mentions that he’ll return to Jiraiya’s side to watch how Naruto’s life plays out.
Naruto notices Jiraiya and Nagato being him who seems to be smiling at Naruto. Naruto gives him a thumb up, at this point, he’s being sucked in to which he says farewell. Kabuto notices that Itachi was able to defeat him without doing much, he played it out very well and tricked him. He mentions that it’s the perfect time to being out his special reserve!
Itachi tells Bee and Naruto that he leaves Tobi to them while he’ll take care of Kabuto and his Edo Tensei, he’s got an idea to stopping the Edo Tensei. Naruto tells him that he’ll stop him, he makes a clone when his Chakra Mode fails, Itachi goes on to tell him that he’s strong but he must notice that if he doesn’t trust other, he’ll end up just like Tobi, he needs to trust others like he’s done with others. He’s shown his power to get approval from his friends, but he also needs to trust them. Naruto remembers all the close friends he’s got in the village.
Itachi burns the crow telling Naruto that he doesn’t want anybody else to use his eyes because its way to powerful! Bee also tells Naruto that Bee asked him to take care of Naruto. as Itachi nearly departs, he tells Bee to take care of Naruto when he leaves. Naruto quickly goes into his Chakra Mode and is quickly ready to go when Naruto Shippuden 299 ends here!
A great episode but the ending was a little dragged on, although can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 300, titled “The Mizukage, the Giant Clam, and the Mirage”, episode when we see the Kage’s go on an all out war on the others, they even go as far as to attack and bring out their Summoning, Onoki, Naruto and Gaara are having a hard time attacking them!
Naruto 619 finally fills the Hokage’s once more as Hashirama is though to be a Shinobi God but in fact a pretty funny guy, while his brother Tobirama seems to be one who’s serious and even knew that the Uchiha were plotting against Konoha. Sasuke starts by asking his fundamental question, which was about Itachi to Hiruzen which confirms it to be true. Tobirama explains why the Uchiha loved and hated so much while Hashirama is asked why he even created the Shinobi!
Naruto 619 begins strong as they’re all faced the four Hokage’s! Suigetsu wonders that the First Hokage, the God of Shinobi has been revived! Tobirama, the second Hokage is once again pissed off for Orochimaru’s actions as he’s brought them back again. Hashirama asks what’s going on. Hiruzen mentions that Orochimaru broke the Shikifujin Seal that bound them and used his Edo Tensei on them!
Minato is shocked that Orochimaru was actually able to pull it off, Orochimaru tells him not to underestimate him, it was originally a technique of the Uzumaki Clan, but once his ability to use his hands and jutsu’s went, he spent his downtime investigating ruins and examining private documents of long-lost clans. Minato mentions to Hashirama that they’ve all been revived using the Edo Tensei!
Hashirama is confused, but asks who the hell he is, Minato turns and shows him that he’s the Fourth Hokage. He’s happy that the village has endured for quite some time, Minato tells him that he can’t confirm this because he died and got sealed long before the third! Hashirama’s face drops and is confused that it seems like they were sealed together!
He tells him that it happened a little differently then expected. Hashirama asks who the Fifth Hokage is, Orochimaru reveals it to be Princess Tsunade, his grand daughter. From happy to sad as he mentions if the village is still standing! Minato tells him to have faith, he then mentions that he used to spoil her, plus she had gambling issues. Suigetsu is confused to see the God of Shinobi not quite living up to his legend.
Tobirama interrupts and asks if Orochimaru’s using the Edo Tensei, it seems like his technique is easy to mimic, Orochimaru tells him that it’s rather straight forward. Orochimaru talks about the newer generation when Tobirama asks if he plans on attacking the village, Hiruzen mentions that he sacrificed his self to cripple his abilities to use his hands, he asks how it’s even possible, he asks if he even plans on going up against the Leaf Village!
Hashirama is upset that the world is still in constant turmoil, he mentions that Orochimaru was correct that it’s a jutsu that can run forever. While Hashirama speaks, Tobirama tells him to shut up, he mentions that he hasn’t finished his talk with Orochimaru yet. Orochimaru tells them that he doesn’t plan on destroying the Leaf, if they noticed he didn’t even bother neutralizing their personalities.
His mission here is to revive them so that someone could speak to them. Sasuke appears and introduces himself, he asks wants to know a few things. Hiruzen is shocked, Tobirama mentions that it would have been his fault for doing something like this. Hashirama shouts telling Tobirama to not speak and twists things making them look like the bad guys, while Tobirama mentions that Hashirama is compassionate as ever.
He quickly stops them to ask Hiruzen why they gave Itachi those orders, Hiruzen realizes that Sasuke knows about everything, he killed Itachi and got his revenge for the rest of the Uchiha Clan. Sasuke mentions that Tobi and Danzou told him the truth, that’s when he decided the Leaf must pay. However it seems like he needs to hear it from Hiruzen himself.
Hiruzen mentions that they ordered him to kill his clan, then was branded a traitor, they also had him infiltrate the Akatsuki and act as their lone spy. Itachi at a very young age was very interesting in the legacy and ancestry of his predecessors, his astuteness about the villages origins and the Shinobi that bore from it was probably the reason why. He never really had strong connection with his family and clan. He was able to see the bigger picture and what he saw made him very restless.
From his age his wisdom was already the same as that of a Hokage, so they placed burden of his young shoulders and welcome it with open arms and treated it like a personally mission. He slaughtered his entire clan to prevent the coup. He also stopped a even larger bloodshed that would have come later, he also agreed to join the Akatsuki as their spy, all for the sake of the village. While at the same time, that he shields his brother, Sasuke, from harm! Sasuke gets a little upset and notices that it was all true.
Tobirama mentions that it was their fate for doing such a thing, he knew that they were rebelling as they had Madara’s will. Orochimaru mentions that he closed them down by forming the Konoha Military Police Force, he goes on to explain that those who keep peace are often viewed in a negative manner, plus he even build their Headquarters in a location that was a prison, under the disguise that he was maintaining peace, he knowingly chased them to the outskirts of the village. He also made the conditions very favorable for Madara to gain his lead.
Hashirama starts to shout at Tobirama for pulling such actions, he told him to stop persecuting the Uchiha, Tobirama mentions that he simply gave them a duty that they could exceed at. Also, he cannot blame him for what Madara did, he should know better than anyone else that the Uchiha are a cursed clan!
Orochimaru asks that they’ve been fixated on Madara, why does he frighten them so much ,Tobirama mentions that he knows nothing about them. Sasuke asks Tobirama, what does he think the Uchiha are and what are they do him. He goes on to explain that they’ve been mortal enemies. The Senju valued friendship and love, while the Uchiha only valued their Jutsu’s alone.
Tobirama mentions that this is false, the Uchiha are the ones who valued love and friendship above all else, so much that it was necessary to seal them off. When a Uchiha comes to know any strong feelings, it’s as if a torrent has unleashed within them. It awakens something even greater than what the Senju know. Suigetsu mentions that if they’re both filled with love then they should be able to get along, Tobirama agrees but there is a problem to this. The Uchiha’s feelings are in fact too powerful.
When a Uchiha goes through strong feelings, it transforms into something such as hatred to which it consumes them. He’s seen it a large number of times. This causes the brains to release a special kind of chakra that affects their optic nerves. The eye that reflects their feelings, the Sharingan!
The Sharingan mirror those feelings of despair and anguish and gives the user a considerable boost in power. Those whole come to experience those strong emotions invariably become consumed by a depraved path! That path leads to the path to which they fall and it’s harder for them to come back, in this case, they can refer to Madara. Madara’s younger brother meant the world to him, even more than what Sasuke was to Itachi!
He tried to channel that power to somewhat that the Uchiha would call benefit but it seems like they used that power to destroy their own kind. At least in the end their power server the greater good. Hashirama quickly steps in to tells Tobirama to be a little respectful as they’re in front of a pure Uchiha child. Tobirama tells them that he’s always cared about the greater good for the village.
Sasuke quickly enables his Mangekyou Sharingan, mentions that he doesn’t care what tone he uses, he’s neither a pure nor a child. Tobirama quickly notices that Sasuke’s eyes have changed into his Mangekyou Sharingan! Sasuke finally asks Hashirama about what the legacy of the village is, and what purpose do the Shinobi fill in his village! This is when Naruto 619 ends!
What an awesome chapter! It’s finally getting to the better parts! Hopefully we see some awesome and fantastic action from them soon, possibly in the war? Or I’d like them to finally go into the specifics of how it all began which could be during next week’s Naruto 620! Can’t wait for it, it’s going to be awesome!
