Both Sasuke and Itachi are not at the ready to the third war currently going within the Naruto Shinobi War. As both Sasuke and Itachi stop and attack Kabuto, they realize that Kabuto is no mere copy of the original Orochimaru. He is in fact transformed himself to a dragon type snake.
We start this epic fight with Sasuke and Itachi all ready to start fighting with Kabuto. He also gets ready to kick some ass with his huge tongue floating off his face. He’s snakes start to hiss to collect as much information from both Sasuke and Itachi. Sasuke explains that they can sense things through temperature as well as the sense of smell that they posses using the tongues they have.
Itachi calls Sasuke Dr. Snakes as he’s impressed by the information he holds of snakes. Sasuke also reveals that he had to do plenty of research in order to beat Orochimaru. Kabuto reveals that even if he has information about snakes, it won’t work since the snakes themselves are a part of nature which is his specialty.
The snakes suddenly attack quickly with force directly at Itachi, Sasuke and Itachi open up their Susanoo to use the advantage of being big with four arms, Sasuke quickly cuts them while Itachi tells him to go easy on them due to the fact that he’s the only one who could potentially break the Edo Tensei (World Impure Resurrection).
Sasuke goes to grab the hood which Kabuto hid in, only to find out that there are Three snakes hiding in the hoodie. These snakes quickly direct themselves to hide within the dark background of this place. As Sasuke draws out his sword, he sends it only to find out that the snakes escaped as the nature of the snake had changed form solid to liquid to move itself.
Sasuke sees a snake in the background using his Mangekyou Sharingan, Itachi then warns Sasuke that he can see multiple snakes located behind different pillars of rocks. Kabuto then explains that he has the ability to transform his body into a liquid form which was first created by the Houzuki Clan, which Suigetsu, a friend of Sasuke’s was in.
He then mentions that he also has a amazingly impressive recovery power which was developed by the Uzumaki Clan, and used by another of Sasuke’s friends, which was Karin. Kabuto then explains to Sasuke that people from the Uzumaki Clan all have red hair, who posses very strong force of life.
Kabuto then goes on to say that he also took something from his other friend Juugo. Sasuke asks if he gained the Orochimaru Cursed Seal, he denies it and refers it to as a pretension trick. He then mentions that he has been self-training at the Ryuchidou. The Ryuchidou is a legendary place which is equally famous to Mount Myoboku, which is where Naruto achieved Sage Mode, and Shikkotsurin.
Kabuto then shouts that he’s finally surpassed Orochimaru. Sasuke then shoots one of arrows directly at where the snake was located. He finds out that the snakes where actually quicker then the arrow and thus missed them. Kabuto explains that his perceptual abilities have been upgraded as well as having the force of nature by his side helping him.
The ability which Kabuto has is the ability to absorb the force of nature, he then explains why at first Juugo went berserk all of a sudden. He then explains that Orochimaru studied this and found out that they had this amazing ability in their bodies. Their power came directly from the Ryuchidou.
As Kabuto is spit out by the snake he sees that his whole body has changed, he now has horns on top of his head. Kabuto then explains that he is no longer a snake, he says that the perfect force of safe helped him to shed his snake skin into what he calls a Dragon! He then says a technique, Sage’s Technique: Hakugeki Jutsu. And then the chapter ends there.
What incredible chapter that was, who knew that Kabuto had grown so powerful in just a few years after the time skip. He has literally surpassed Orochimaru in most categories, but can Kabuto fight? We’ll see what this Hakugeki Jutsu does in Naruto 580.
