Naruto Shippuden 302 explains that Onoki’s dead was a sand clone as Gaara saved him, the Mizukage also mentions that Gaara in fact the Golden Child who will bring promises. The Mizukage’s strongest Steam Imp is put into action showing them powerful it is, it also caused Mu a lot of trouble. We notice the unbelievable reappearance of Mu who was sealed, but in fact it seems like he used his Splitting Technique to allow him to stay alive, even Onoki didn’t notice this.
Naruto Shippuden 302 begins as Onoki is shot down, he falls to the ground and the Mizukage calls him an idiot, Onoki turns into sand and quickly goes on to capture Mizukage in Gaara’s sand. Mizukage notices that Gaara’s been using his eye in order to help Onoki. As Gaara captures Mizukage, they throw seals but it doesn’t work.
Gaara bring a lot of sand towards the Mizukage, tons and tons of it to which he forms his Grand Sand Mausoleum which covers a large and grand area. They throw their tags and try to seal when a large smoke appears, it breaks out of the technique from Gaara and Onoki knows that whats appeared is going to be trouble. He tells them that it’s the Steam Imp, which has the possibilities of having infinite explosions.
From the skies falls hail, with so much steam, it starts to move away and a form of an imp type clone appears which has similar look to the Mizukage. It starts out large and becomes small, Onoki explains that it’s made of an outer layer of Oil and internal layer of water, it works as it gets hotter and hotter by movement the water turns into steam and explodes. It cools down into it’s smaller form by the hail generated by the steam.
It attacks and gets a lot of hits on the Shinobi’s, Onoki tells them that they need to go for the real one to stop him. Someone detects Mizukage, Gaara quickly goes to him and quickly gets his sand on him, Gaara gets another Grand Sand going while the Steam Imp becomes larger that it’s about the explode. Gaara tries to seal him when the Steam Imp appears and takes it off, Mizukage’s head appears from the top of the pyramid.
Mizukage tries to test the current Kage’s by not telling them how to beat the Steam Imp, he wants to see if they’re worthy of the title. The Steam Imp goes for them, especially Gaara, it gets closer to him and explodes, he tries to save a lot of the people with his shield, he also covers himself with his own shield. Naruto and the others notice the explosion and go towards it.
The Steam Imp becomes small, Gaara quickly goes to attack the Steam Imp, they both try to attack each other when Gaara’s seen taking some sand which has golden colouring to it, it seems to have covered the Steam Imp as it was Gaara as a sand clone. It’s covered and the Steam Imp falls down, it tries to move but seems to be heavy.
Gaara quickly gets it with his sand, Mizukage presumes that he’s sand has gotten faster. Gaara covers the Steam Imp with his sand, it gets larger and larger, it seems like it’s going to explode, this time it doesn’t as only small amounts of steam appear. The outer parts of the Steam Imp appear and it seems that it’s been covered by Gold, or it’s been completely remolded by Gold.
The Mizukage notices what happened after Gaara tells him that Golds 20 times heavier than water. Mizukage’s impressed with his strategy, he also calls Gaara a Golden Child! We notice that Kabuto’s upset with the number of Kage’s quickly going down, we move onto where Mu was sealed, we somehow see him again! Mu notices that his counter part has been sealed, we also notice that he was split into half using Fission and Onoki hasn’t noticed it yet!
Mu mentions that because of this, his splitting technique may be quicker but it also halves his power, it means that for Kabuto, it will take more time for Mu to be able to summon someone, currently it’s unknown who that is. Kabuto might want to also bring some other people for back up to get some more people.
Naruto appears in front of Gaara, he asks who he’s fighting against, Naruto see’s Mizukage with a weird body and thus Mizukage calls Gaara clever and Naruto an idiot, as Mizukage is being sealed, Gaara smiles and asks if he’s really a good guy. He’s completely covered with the seal.
Many injured members are taken to the Medical Corps, even the Onoki is taken. Gaara asks Naruto if he’s a clone, and where the real one is. Naruto’s currently running towards the main battle field where most of the fights are done, the Medical Corps seems to now not take any more members as it seems that it could turn out to be Zetsu. Other battlefields are also worried that they may have friends who could be Zetsu themselves.
Tenten is still looking for her Bashosen. Neji and Hinata talk about being careful, as their could be people in the camp who may be Zetsu’s, Neji’s abilities seem to be deteriorating. Kakashi finds out that Pakura and Gari have not yet been sealed, Fuguki Suikazan and Mangetsu Hozuki have also yet to be sealed. Naruto keeps on running as quickly as he can. Naruto Shippuden 302 ends here.
A good ending to today’s chapter, it seems that Naruto is getting closer and closer to the real action, it also seems like Naruto is going to get there angry and wanting to kick some real butt! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 303, titled “Ghosts from the Past”, when more enemies appears, Neji and Hinata appear there to fight them!
