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!
