Naruto 617 shows us why someone’s death can be very deep feeling pushing others to win in this crazy fight. Neji’s death pushes Rock Lee into getting seriously pissed and helping Naruto when attacking Madara and Obito! Kurama accepts that Naruto has surpassed both Kushina and Minato, and that they should be proud. Sasuke and the others finally arrive at the place they were first looking for.
Naruto 617 begins as Rock Lee hears Naruto’s speech, he agrees that Neji’s spirit lives right within his heart. Lee remembers the moment he fought Neji, at one point he remembers being defeated by him but at another point he remembers that Neji mentions that they should both go all out to see who’s more powerful.
Neji is given Kurama’s power also, Lee helps to close Neji’s eyes, he will always have Neji has one of his rivals. Kakashi is now remembers when he was talking to Shikaku, Kakashi agree’s that the chakra he was given now is much more dense than before as well as being much more robust. Shikaku tells Kakashi that he was able to gather intel on the battle before, he mentions that when he was given Kurama’s chakra for his Kamui, Shikaku works out that this chakra can be used to help everyone as it’s doing now.
Kurama looks at Naruto, he mentions that he’s just about finished giving his chakra out. He mentions that Naruto has grown up to the man who Minato had envisioned. We see a diagram showing how Kurama’s chakra is being divided, since it’s different for everyone, Kurama had to make his chakra match individuals chakra traits, it seems like Naruto has learned Minato’s trait to pass chakra on, just like Minato did when Naruto was small.
Kurama mentions that Naruto’s already surpassed both his parents, the number of links he can sustain as well as the sheer volume of chakra he can funnel is freighting. Kurama asks himself how both Kushina and Minato would like it, although they wouldn’t mind losing to Naruto. They should be proud because the fruit they bore has finally ripened!
Madara also gets pissed and controls a large number of the tails, as he tries to attack them. Shikamaru pushes Naruto into doing something as it looks like it’s not going to go down quietly. A large number of people quickly get ready, with Bijuu Dama’s, Issen, Empty Fist and Wind Element, Grand Net. They all attack at once which pushes the hands back as well as makes them red-hot. The hands fall onto the ground as quickly as anyone else can see.
Neji’s death won’t be in vain as everyone else gets ready and pumped up. Obito mentions that his only way of escaping was to die from the cursed mark he had on his head. He was stuck in a cage awaiting his imminent death from which he could finally escape from the curse. Obito pisses everyone by saying that it’s a poetic moment.
Everyone quickly goes for their attack as their spirits grow! Naruto leading the group, they all go on an all out attack! Two of the Ten Tail’s hand like tails have been cut by the attack group! The group of people quickly head for the head of the Ten Tails. Naruto’s shoulder cracks due to his shoulder not getting repaired quickly. Hinata quickly steps in and uses her Gentle Fist to put it back as well as repair it! Lee tells him that he’s taking the right side!
Lee’s quickly speed and Naruto’s Rasen Shuriken are launched! Lee smashes Madara into pieces while the Rasen Shuriken covers Obito making him unable to do much. Both Madara and Obito back off a little as many people climb the Ten Tails! Naruto tells them that he’ll never sever the bonds he’s made, and he hopes that no one would sever the bonds they’ve made with Naruto too! We see Sasuke as the interpretation to this, it seems like Sasuke and everyone else have reached the place they wanted to get! Naruto 617 ends here!
What a great chapter, Sasuke’s actions are also being shown as well as the battle progress more and more. It’s awesome to see Naruto and the others finally being able to push back Obito and Madara. They’ll need one heck of a sealing jutsu to put Madara back in the ground. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 618 when the battle continues!
