From beating them down to facing the Edo Tensei version of Hashirama Senju which has just come through. His real plans are mentioned to which he’d like to take Obito’s place and rule with his Infinite Tsukuyomi.

Naruto Shippuden 322 finally blows me away, the number of crazy things that happens is just off the hook. Madara gets in gear to show how to truly fight without holding back, plus shows his awesome Susanoo as well as his great power such as the two large meteors which even the Kage’s can’t handle. Madara is truly worth to be called a God. He’s literally on another level from the current shinobi’s now.
Naruto Shippuden 322 begins as the shadows covers the land over the battlefield. Naruto mentions that the Madara in front of them is the real one, and the masked one is a fake and is someone else. Onoki has no idea who they are. Madara see’s that the Shinobi’s in front of them are an allied force. He also mentions that Tobi must have something planned, that’s why he’s gone to all this trouble.
He asks who the animator is, Kabuto appears in Muu’s body introducing himself, saying that he’s with Tobi. He mentions that Madara’s Edo Tensei is special and that he’s been able to fix him up, being even better than his glory days. Madara asks if he knows anything about his glory days, Kabuto says no and that he wants him to show Kabuto. Gaara tries to attack but fails.
Madara lands on the battlefield mentioning that he’ll fight. Madara looks at everyone, they get ready and so does Madara. They start running at each other, shouting. Madara goes all out the first time showing his true greatness. He begins his attack and the Shinobi’s attacking him are quickly defeated, one by one, they’re beaten up to a pulp. Without the others being able to do anything. He can see everything using his Sharingan. Muu isn’t able to use his techniques.
Naruto is asked if he can use his Chakra mode instead of Gaara and Onoki going out. Madara is quickly taking out a lot of soldiers around him. Breaking their bones as well as stabbing their faces. He’s pushed back by Temari, but that doesn’t do anything. He gets in a stance and enables his Fire Style which spans a great wide area. The Shinobi’s enable their water which is barely holding. Steam is created when Madara jumps into action with a lot of fireballs behind him.
This way he keeps on attacking. He see’s Gaara’s technique being used. Gaara pushes him back, Naruto even uses his large Rasengan but Madara blocks it using his Susanoo. After using his Susanoo, he begins to take even more people out, using the chakra swords. Naruto is trying to get into his Sage Mode.
Gaara begins to stop the Susanoo but begins to fail as two more hands are formed. Naruto gets his Rasen Shuriken this time. Onoki makes Gaara’s sand lighter, Naruto goes. Gaara attacks Gaara from the bottom which begins Madara out of the Susanoo Shell. The Rasen Shuriken is thrown and Madara’s eyes changes.
At the HQ, they talk about what’s going on and how they can counter attack. Madara has been able to take out the Rasen Shuriken by just absorbing it using his Rinnegan. The Susanoo fades and Madara backs to the ledge. Kabuto mentions that he knew it all along. Kabuto mentions that he’s made his body better. He can’t even read the tablet of the Uchiha.
He mentions that he’s able to push the powers of the Gods. Madara unleashes his Susanoo. The Shinobi look up staring at a large rock, by which Madara has summoned. Onoki gets ready by telling everyone to run, while he fly’s up and makes the rock lighter by which he can stop it. He goes up and does so, Gaara begins his technique too by which he tries to hold the rock using his sand as hands. They both stop it, Madara looks at them mentioning how they’ll be able to stop the second one, Onoki is shocked and the second hits the first rendering Onoki’s efforts useless.
It all goes to hell hell as the destruction from these two rocks have ruined everything. The shock from the second spans out very far. Tsunade at the HQ mentions that she’s going to go in order to help with everything. Many people have vanished and only a few remain from all this. Naruto goes to Onoki by which he’s unconscious by all the damage. He’s seriously hurt. Muu and Madara return from the destruction of the rock.
Madara asks how much he knows about him. He knows that he doesn’t know everything, but that he still lived after their great fight with Hashirama, plus was able to take a part of Hashirama at that point. Kabuto mentions that there are still some people left like Gaara and Onoki. Madara checks something first, which makes Naruto’s belly hurt. Kurama is being summoned.
Kabuto mentions that Naruto is the Jinchuuriki, and that he’s part of Mito a long time ago. Kabuto mentions that they can always go for the real one, however Madara wants to try something. He quickly enables his Wood Style Deep Forest Emergence, which seems impossible. Naruto Shippuden 322 ends here.
What a crazy chapter, plus how are Naruto and the others ever going to survive from all this that’s going on. It’s going to be one hell of a fight by Naruto and the others. Hopefully the others can quickly appear to help during next week’s Naruto Shippuden 323, titled “The Five Kage Assemble”, when the Kage’s come to one to fight Madara.
Naruto 621 brings even more history to the table as Hashirama Senju vs Madara Uchiha goes even further into the past. This time, it’s the first time they met, even then Hashirama seemed to have better than Madara with skills. The battle continues on to Hashirama bringing out a humongous buddha statue which over thousands of hands behind it. It may just crush Kurama’s little body!
Naruto 621 begins as the Bijuu Dama captured by Hashirama tries to crush the statue built by Madara. There is a large explosion after the Bijuu Dama destroys a lot of its area! Unfortunately, it seems like Madara had covered Kurama within the Susanoo’s to help it cover against most jutsu’s such as the Bijuu Dama itself!
Unfortunately for Hashirama, the wood based creature he had splits in half, Hashirama realizes what Madara had done, he smiles and calls Madara smart, at this point, it seems like Madara’s Susanoo is going for the attack. Hashirama quickly holds the sword using his wooden hands telling him that he can predict how he’s going to use his sword! Another sword comes from the left of Kurama, which takes off the top of the surrounding mountains!
Hashirama realizes that the grounds will be destroyed if they don’t move to the sea, he runs when Madara tells him that he’s not going to let him run, he creates another Bijuu Dama, this time he thrusts a sword in the Bijuu Dama to which he then throws both! Madara quickly tells him that he can’t do anything now, Hashirama quickly summons the Gojuu Rashoumon which seems to be a jutsu which Orochimaru can also use.
With this, he used the Bijuu Dama to change its trajectory. it’s sent towards the water and to the next shore. Madara mentions that it’s been a long time since their last fight, he believes that Hashirama’s realizes that he’s changed! Hashirama mentions, does he want to destroy all that they’ve done so far? All the effort, their fight will bring nothing, it will just hurt the village and people.
He mentions that it’s an insult to their brothers and comrades, Madara quickly reacts asking how he dares to mention brothers! Hashirama then goes on to mention that he doesn’t want to kill him, Madara then goes on to ask if he’s confident that he can kill Madara. Hashirama says no, then mentions that they were both friends! Madara quickly screams that he’s already at the top, Kurama screams a loud!
Hashirama prepares and quickly some paintings on his face appears, similar to what Tsunade can do. He mentions the words Senpou, Mokuton, Shinsuusenju! Which brings out a large statue with a few thousand hands on it’s back. Compared to Kurama in size, this would be a hundred times bigger! They both go for their attacks screaming out loud.
We go to the past when we notice a very young Madara tries to throw rocks against a river bed towards the other shore. Unfortunately it doesn’t reach it, he mentions that he wants to get it to the other side as soon as possible! A rock from behind him appears, this rock quickly reaches the other side with no ease.
A young Hashirama appears, he mentions that Madara should aim a little higher when he throws, Madara mentions that he knows this, he’s just trying to get the hang of it. He asks who he is, Hashirama mentions that currently they’re rival at playing this game. He mentions that his got to the other side therefore he won. It’s then mentions that it’s the first time he met Madara Uchiha! Naruto 621 ends here.
What a great chapter, the amazing jutsu’s just keep rolling in, plus Madara and Hashirama’s fight keeps on getting more and more better! It’s just unbelievable that such a thing has happened! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 622, when were likely to see a lot more action from both Madara and Hashirama!
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 608 isn’t one of the best chapters of the wars, but it counts for something as we see a good amount of fights as well as see Naruto’s determination towards both Tobi and Madara. Naruto’s determination triggers Kakashi’s memories as he had thought Naruto what Obito had told Kakashi.
Naruto 608 starts out as Obito releases his Sharingan to throw a large number of shuriken at Kakashi but fails as Kakashi releases his Doton Doryuuheki forming a large brick wall, at this point, Obito quickly appears in front of Kakashi and hits him on the knee with one of the shuriken. Kakashi asks why, this meant to ask why he joined Madara.
Obito tells Kakashi to shut up. He then says that he’s trash that can only talk. Obito uses Kamui which pulls Kakashi into his inner world, at this moment, Kakashi things about the moment Obito had told Kakashi about the moment trash are made, people who don’t care for their friends are even worse trash.
Kakashi uses Kamui and gets out. Naruto is having a hard time as the Wooden Dragon is absorbing all the chakra from Naruto, this meaning that the form of Kurama itself is disappearing. At this point, even Bee is captured by the tree, Naruto falls down as there is no longer a place where he can stand, plus the form of Kurama is disappearing.
Obito finds out that both his eye and Kakashi’s eye are the same as he easily got out of the Inner World by Kamui. Kakashi asks why Obito had done it, he refers to taking part with Madara and helping him, Kakashi then asks if it’s related to Rin.
Obito quickly runs towards Kakashi at full speed, Kakashi unable to run because of the knee injury takes a knee attack right to the face from Obito. At this point, Kakashi keeps on remembering moments from his past with Obito, in which they propose that they should go and save Rin. At the same moment, Kakashi is taking a large beating from Obito.
Obito calls Kakashi trash for speaking, he then tells him to die, Kakashi tells Obito that he’s correct that he is trash that he couldn’t keep his promise. Kakashi tells Obito that he’s one of the Leaf’s heroes, he doesn’t have to become like Kakashi.
Obito giggles and tells Kakashi that both the ones who give and the ones who are given all the shinobi who were able to survive in this world become trash. Both Obito and Kakashi are trash. Kakashi is shocked at this. Naruto notices that Bee is also in trouble.
Madara faces Bee and says that everything is an hindrance, this world is going to end soon, for you and him he needs to first tidy up the battlefield a little. Madara then enables his Susanoo. Obito also faces Kakashi with his large Shuriken, no one can escape from the circle that keeps on creating trash, that’s why he’s going to rebuild this world.
Naruto gets ready and creates a Shadow Clone, as both Madara and Obito go to attack each other’s opponent, Naruto intervenes and stops Madara’s sword and Obito’s Shuriken. Naruto tells both of them that he’s no trash, and he won’t turn into trash!
Naruto tells both of them that he won’t let him kill his friends. Kakashi notices this as it was said by Kakashi in the past, he mentioned the same exact thing. Kakashi says sorry that he had taught him Obito’s words. Kakashi gets more angered at this point.
Out of nowhere, Obito goes to attack Naruto, at the same time, Gai and Kakashi both use their techniques. Gai uses his Hirudora (Literally Meaning Daytime Tiger) while Kakashi uses his Raikiri, it gets closer and closer when a large explosion occurs in the battlefield. Kakashi tells Obito, what he had left him in the past is still here, what he can do now is protect Naruto! Naruto 608 ends here.
A good chapter but personally it was a little stale for my taste, no new mysteries or theories confirmed. Over all it had some good fights and it seems like it’s going to pick up during next week’s Naruto 609 chapter! Can’t wait!
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.
