Sasuke walks to until Zetsu’s appear, he quickly enables his Susanoo and obliterates them with his Amaterasu. From then on we see Itachi trying to go somewhere. Continue reading
Naruto Shippuden 321 see’s the resurrection of Madara Uchiha who’s been brought back in a Edo Tensei form by Kabuto. Madara faces Naruto as well as Gaara and Onoki in their battlefield. We also see Naruto finally arrive in each and every battlefield to help the people who are currently confused to who’s a White Zetsu or the real them.
Naruto Shippuden 321 begins with a large explosion while many people are fighting their own soldiers. Kiba finds Shino when he notices that he’s about to kill him, he turn on him and kills the Zetsu. Even Neji’s Byakugan can’t detect them. Shikamaru and the others mention for them not to get outside their circle or else they’ll be killed. They’re waiting for something.
A soldiers protects the medical users who mentions that they cannot move or else they’ll be killed by him. Mei Terumi tries to get the Black Zetsu but it just keeps on building trees over itself to protect itself from getting harmed from Mei’s lava. The other Edo Tensei’s are going berserk, Sai is also trying to get the seal down so he can trap them. The Edo’s are killing more than they’re getting hurt. Even the Samurai’s are being controlled.
At the HQ, they’ve detected a small unit which is unusual in power, he detects that it’s the Mizukage as well as other Jinchuuriki’s, Tobi is going with them to a certain target. Naruto keep on going when Bee catches up to him. Naruto mentions that the other clones should be arriving in the battlefield very soon.
Choji mentions that he’s getting tired of it all, Shikamaru mentions that they need to wait for Naruto, anything else will not work. Naruto quickly arrives, Dan notices that Naruto looks just like Nawaki. They all notice that Naruto’s there, they say Hi. Darui is surprised that Raikage let him go, but Tsunade let him go. Shikamaru tells Dan that he was his idiot classmate, now he makes it that they can actually win.
Naruto gets closer to everyone and mentions that a member there has already been spotted of being a Zetsu. Furthermore back at where Sakura are, there is a couple who are hurt, the girl begs for them to take care of her husband, Sakura see’s this and quickly asks them to come in, they walk and quickly try to jump on Sakura and the others when Naruto quickly appears!
Sakura notices the new Naruto while he has destroyed the Zetsu’s. Neji notices Hinata being hurt, he’s quickly upset but then realises that it was a Zetsu. Neji and Kiba notice Naruto. Hinata tries to get an enemy but is overwhelmed by other enemies, then Naruto shows up there and quickly saves her! He quickly gets them with his attack, asking if she’s okay.
Mu appears and tries to summon someone, which he is also surprised by, he does this quickly. A man walks out and notices Mu’s words on how he’s being described an Edo Tensei. Furthermore he also mentions that the brat was able to talk to Nagato about his Rinne Rebirth Technique.
Everyone surrounds Naruto. Neji, Kiba, Hinata and others ask if it’s really Naruto as they don’t see if it’s really him. Hinata tells all of them that she see’s it in his eyes that it’s really him. Shino comes there now to help. Naruto tells them that he’s there to help. Naruto also notices Hinata who mentions that the person who they’re suppose to help is helping them, he mentions for her not to worry because she’s also strong. They quickly go into battle.
Sair is making his seal, he’s made the seal when it quickly captures Fuguki, at the same time other Edo Tensei’s in that area notice that they won’t be able to do much, so they leave for the moment. At that point, more Zetsu’s appear as their reinforcements, for the Ninja side, Naruto also appears for them. He’s already getting to all other battlefields.
Naruto has also joined Gaara and Onoki who have helped to seal many others. Naruto begins to give more orders to who the bad guys are and quickly begin to regain their feet on the war. Shikaku mentions that their plans are working. The HQ notices a huge spike in chakra in Gaara’s unit. They notice that theirs someone on the ledge. Mu appears on the ledge, Onoki mentions that Mu must have fragmented himself into a half.
Onoki and the others also notice that there is another man coming, this man being the toughest of them all! Madara Uchiha has finally arrived, Naruto notices that this is the man under the mask, Gaara mentions that he’s an Edo Tensei and not an actual living being, this therefore brings the question of who the other Madara/Tobi is with the other Jinchuuriki’s. Naruto Shippuden 321 ends here.
I’m so glad that we’re back to the original story line, however I’m upset at the crappy graphics used on this episode. After looking at next week’s preview, I can confirm that the graphics during next week’s episode, Naruto Shippuden 322 titled “Madara Uchiha”, we’ll see Madara Uchiha fight! As well as great graphics and animation from them! Can’t wait!
Naruto Shippuden 290 finally starts with the war and it seems like Naruto has finally gotten himself to the action. We go through a recap which seems to be a little pointless. Naruto finally fights his first Edo Tensei. Plus we see what is likely to happen next has both Onoki and Gaara finally face the previous Kage’s.
Naruto Shippuden 290 as the Jinchuuriki’s seem to have also been brought back due to the Edo Tensei. Plus Tobi seems to know that Naruto will obviously chase after them. Back at the HQ, Shikaku and Mabui seems to know that Naruto has escaped. They keep on going on how it could be a trap set by Tobi himself.
Sakura and Shizune have gone head to dissect the White Zetsu to see what’s going on. Sakura concludes that it has the same genetic make up as the First Hokage and that Yamato could have been used to make them stronger. Tsunade and Raikage return to the HQ to receive a report about how the Zetsu’s are using the First Hokage’s cells. We see Madara and the other Jinchuuriki’s travel as they’re going somewhere.
Shikaku tells Naruto about what is currently happening. Naruto has been finally told everything which has happened. He also mentions that Naruto is his target and that he’s not like Pain and Nagato and thus cannot be negotiated with. Naruto remembers the time when he met Tobi. Naruto promises to kick Tobi’s ass! Shikaku also tells him about the Edo Tensei’s.
Naruto and Bee find a lot of ninja’s walking towards them, Naruto quickly uses his senses to use his Rasengan, it turns out that Naruto was right and they were Zetsu’s. Bee also prepares. Naruto creates a lot of Rasengan’s, even a Rasenkyugan! He also creates a Mini-Rasenshuriken! Once the smaller Zetsu’s die, they join to create a large Zetsu. He uses the Mini-Rasenshuriken which kicks it’s ass. He also summons the frog.
Naruto creates a large number of Shadow Clones to help everyone in every battlefield. Two members of are found to be faced by a Toroi whose abilities are Magnet Style. Once one of his blade touches you, it’s instantly magnetized. And the next Shuriken he throws will directly go to him thus killing him. Toroi throws and it touches one of the man, meaning Toroi’s next attack will possibly kill him.
Out of nowhere, Naruto shows up with a Rasengan! He kicks the Edo Tensei’s ass, it disrupts Kabuto’s connection and he notices something. Naruto notices that sealing them is the only way to take them away from that world. Naruto and Bee keep on moving.
Gaara and Onoki have been retreating for some time now, it’s time for them to stand. The previous Kage’s talk, they mention that they want to kick Orochimaru’s ass when they find him using the Edo Tensei on them. A large wave of Sand appears, Shukaku is first thought by the Fourth Kazekage. He launches his Gold Dust which traps the sand.
Gaara and Onoki appear in the sky, the Fourth Kazekage thinks it was Shukaku but in fact it was Gaara! Onoki makes his Particle Style which he launches at the same time Mu does. They meet each other creating a large light! They all get ready. Gaara meets his father, he asks where Shukaku is, Gaara tells him that he’s long gone when Naruto Shippuden 296 ends here.
A good chapter and it’s nice that Naruto Shippuden is finally back on the war. Can’t wait to see Naruto finally fight with most of the other Edo Tensei’s! It’s going to be pretty awesome to see when Naruto gets to Gaara and Onoki! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 297, titled “A Father’s Hope, A Mother’s Love”, when both Gaara and his father go up against each other!
Naruto 606 finally reveals to us why Obito had turned over to help Madara in the first place, his desire to live and love Rin overruled everything in his life, even Kakashi’s rival-ship turned into hatred, his wish to create a new world in which Rin and himself are there turned his whole world upside down.
Naruto 606 starts out as the object in the sky in which Obito create now starts to crack and the people start to fall down. He starts to walk towards Rin, while thinking about what Madara had said. He remember specific sentences which Madara has said such as the fact that if there is Light, there will also be Shadow or darkness.
Madara looks at Kakashi’s body and completely avoid its. Obito now looks towards Rin’s body while she’s dead. Obito goes to touch her when he stops himself, before actually touching her a few impurities in her neck start to appear, it’s as though it reacted towards something. Obito is startled but doesn’t care.
Rin thinks of when in a dream, everything goes in the way you want but after being woken, everything changes. Obito touches her face and start crying at the fact that he never got to do such a thing. Obito brings himself to Rin and embraces her as he’s saddened, he says that he will create a world where she is alive. He then looks at Kakashi leaving him there as he’s unconscious. He promises to change the fate of this world.
He tells everything that happened to Madara, he laughs and says that he hopes no one saw him, Zetsu confirms that no one was able to detect him as he killed all the enemies leaving Kakashi untouched, he didn’t see anything. When the reinforcement from the Leaf arrived, they wondered at who annihilated the enemy.
Madara asks if he feels regret for his past teammate, Obito replies that he doesn’t care whether he lives or dies he couldn’t care less, Obito mentions that Kakashi will be in the world they’re about to create, and so will Rin. Obito asks Madara asks how one would create a dream world.
Madara smiles and tells Obito to come closer. Starting from today, Obito will be the savior. Madara enables his Genjutsu bringing Obito into a world where nothing but whiteness is. Madara tells him that they’re in his Genjutsu, he can create and control anything he desires within this Genjutsu world. If he’s connected to the Mazo, he can use its power and create anything, he shows Obito his more younger form.
With this Genjutsu, he can create a world exactly as he wants it, and then he just has to cast it on people thus dragging them inside this world. He says that by using the Moon instead of his eyes to cast this Genjutsu, he can create the dream world. He then explains using the point of view from Six Path and the Tailed Beasts.
At a different point in time, Obito and Zetsu are around looking for the Akatsuki, they lay their eyes upon Nagato who is described to have Madara’s Rinnegan, he had transplanted them on him when he was still a boy without him realizing it. Zetsu explains that Nagato is from the Senju Lineage thus he’s the only person besides Madara able to summon the Gedo Mazo.
Madara previously explained that when his life was nearly over, he had awakened the Rinnegan, with this he was able to break a certain seal, he was able to summon the Gedo Mazo from the stone it was sealed into. Madara has used Hashirama’s cells and the Gedo Mazo as a catalyst to activate and create Zetsu clones.
Someone cannot just activate the Rinnegan without first having both the Uchiha’s and Senju’s power. Obito tells Zetsu that they first need to befriend Nagato as Madara, they will gather all the Bijuu’s and then revive Madara with Nagato’s Rinne Tensei.
Madara has previously thought Obito all the Kinjutsu and Rikudou Jutsu, as well as the In’Youton Jutsu. After this point, Madara mentions that he had put his will inside one of the Zetsu’s thus turning him half of him black.
Madara then does a hand seal in which he removes a black pole from Hashirama’s body, he says that its necessary to bring Madara back, during the Rikudou No Jutsu. At this point, Madara starts to die, he tell Obito to go until he’s back. Nagato looks upon Obito within his Zetsu Suit. He asks who he is, Obito reveals to Nagato that he’s name is Madara Uchiha! Naruto 606 ends here.
We finally know most of what we needed to know about Madara and Obito’s past, I presume that this is the best time to get back to the War. That was certainly a great chapter, can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 607. It’s going to be another awesome chapter, stay tuned.
Naruto 605 gives some light into why Kakashi had to kill Rin, we also discover that as Kakashi kills Rin, both Obito and him receive the Mangekyou Sharingan, Obito also discoverers a hint of his true power when he fights and notoriously defeats a large number of Mist Ninja’s.
Naruto 605 continues on as Rin spews blood out while Kakashi doesn’t regret what he did. Kakashi takes out his right arm from Rin’s chest and Rin falls down. Obito looks towards Kakashi and Rin as it seems as though he murdered Rin. Surrounding Kakashi and Rin are a large number of Mist Ninja’s. One of them says that Kakashi took Rin out, just when they finally managed to get their hands on it.
It seems that they wanted something from Rin, Kakashi had to kill her for this sake. At this point, Kakashi is really weak, Obito is seen to get really pissed as the spirals surrounding him start to come back to his body. Both Kakashi raise their faces as they obtain the notorious Mangekyou Sharingan.
As Obito gets even more pissed and angry, Kakashi has run out of chakra, he closes he’s eyes while he cries, he also falls to the ground with no hope. Obito shouts to the heaven in order to get the Mist Ninja’s attention, he does this so they don’t get their hands on Kakashi and Rin.
He develops tree spikes on the right of his body. The Mist ninja’s throw some Kunai , but unfortunately they just go straight through. At this point, the Mist Ninja’s attack Obito but found that Obito’s Mangekyou Sharingan has just enhanced his strength and speed. He hits the Mist and grows his tree inside the ninja which basically kills him directly.
After this he starts to kill countless number of ninja’s, one after the other, they all go down. Obito is attacked by three ninja’s, he jumps and spin kicks all of them. The list the ninja’s have to do is to retrieve the girl, even her corpse will be important. Obito hears this and quickly uses his technique to get passed everyone.
He throws a wood piece and does a hand sign which quickly grows the wood piece piercing through the body of the ninja.s Obito then punches and kicks the Ninja’s face. Obito smashes the face of the Ninja, then grabs his head and pierces through it.
At this point, Obito is completely covered with blood from the mist ninja’s. Obito then uses his Genjutsu or his Mokuton to grow trees spanning towards the moon, in small spaces, it traps all the ninja’s within them, it then squeezes which bursts out blood from each and every ones body in the tree. At this point, blood rains from the skies towards the ground. At this point, Obito looks at the corpse of Rin saying that he’s in Hell. Naruto 605 ends here.
What a fantastic and crazy chapter. Obito just went all out using his Mangekyou Sharingan and Mokuton! It’ll be an interesting story line after this, and why was Rin so special that Kakashi had to kill her? We’ll probably find out later on! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 606, it’s going to be truly epic!
Naruto 604 finally reveals who the killer of Rin is. To the normal eye it seems like it is Kakashi! But could there be something more to this, and what could the reasons be for Kakashi attacking Rin, could this Kakashi somehow be a Zetsu clone who is tricking Obito into returning to Madara.
Naruto 604 starts out as Obito fully bonds with the Zetsu who is currently with him. He’s attacked to the Gedo Mazo. Obito quickly goes for an attack on the large boulder to quickly head towards Rin and Kakashi. Obito smashes the rock and after just one strike the whole thing cracks.
One of the Zetsu’s mentions that it’s impressive that Obito is able to borrow the power of the Gedo Mazo while connected to the roots. The boulder crumbles and a pathway is made. The mask on Obito unwinds and Madara wakes up. He asks if Obito is going.
At this point Obito tears the cord holding him to the Gedo Mazo. Obito tells Madara that he’s thankful for saving him but he can’t stay there so he can’t really stay there. Madara tells him that he’s too impatient and that it’s still too early for him to give thanks to Madara.
Obito tells him that he probably won’t ever come back there again and that he’s going to go. Madara tells Obito that he will definitely return and will give him his true gratitude when the time comes. Obito notices that White Zetsu, he asks him to show him the way. The Zetsu tells him that they can talk using telepathy and the clone which Obito has the main going on him.
Obito tells the suit that he’s counting on him, he then scatters off. He grabs a cloak like thing and asks Zetsu how Kakashi and Rin are right now. He mentions that according to his comrades and clones, they are pretty screwed at this point. They are surrounded by several enemies.
Obito shouts and asks himself where Minato is because only he can save them, but he’s nowhere to be found. Obito remembers the moment when Obito made Kakashi promise that he had to protect Rin at any cost. Zetsu tells him that since they’re going to enter the battlefield, Obito’s powers are weaker than that of Zetsu and thus he should fight at that point.
Obito says Madara had mentioned that when the Sharingan’s are merged that both of them will be at their strongest. He also mentions that both Kakashi and him will protect Rin no matter what. Obito feels that there is rain coming from the sky, but it’s just information from his comrades.
Obito notices that as he goes to follow the large explosion, his left socket see’s an image. He notices an image of Rin, she seems to be upset and possibly hurt. When then see that a man has just killed Rin by pushing their hand through her chest.
The vision ends and Obito keeps on going, he notices a great tragedy as Kakashi with his Chidori strikes Rin’s chest, Rin speaks Kakashi’s name once more, Obito keeps on watching. At this point Obito gets real pissed of while Kakashi get’s teared up. Naruto 604 ends here.
That was a fantastic chapter, there are multiple reason’s why Kakashi could have done it, maybe because she told him because of the current situation, or that Kakashi was being manipulated, or even if Kakashi was a Zetsu clone. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 605, it’s going to be epic to see what had happened here!
Naruto 603 shows some changes in Obito, his will to be with Kakashi and Rin is still strong but he starts to get used to his new body as well as starts to like the Zetsu’s which he’s living with. He also receives some help from Zetsu which allows him to stand properly as well as wear one of them as an outside protective cast.
Naruto 603 starts off as Obito asks two Zetsu’s how long he’s been here from when he’s arrived, it seems like a long time for him. They reply that he doesn’t need to worry because he’s not going to be charged for rent, they reveal that they were made by the Demonic Statue so they don’t need to eat, pay bills or go to the bathroom. They don’t need to take any dump.
Obito tells them not to refer Obito as one of them even if half of his body is like them. They reveal to Obito that because he’s got that he’s going to survive as well as not need food or water, so he should be thanking them instead of complaining. Zetsu’s are the ones that don’t want to be the same as Obito as he’s only a modified body.
Zetsu’s also reveal to him that they’re much better than him in both Vocab and Wisdom, Obito asks them to prove it. They equally say that they’re watching over them, they were ordered by Madara to help Obito with his Rehabilitation and to make sure that they would be useful by the time Madara wakes up.
Obito reveals that he’s going to bust out of this place no matter what to go to Rin and Kakashi. Zetsu tells them that he cannot because there are no exits, after bringing Obito there, Madara had placed a large rock on the entrance. Zetsu quickly changes the topic to reveal that Obito sleep talks and says Rin’s and Bakakashi quite a lot.
One of the Zetsu’s asks how it feels to take a dump because they’re unable to. Obito quickly tells Zetsu that they’re both Bakakashi for asking such a question. Zetsu’s get no response so they move on to ask about Rin and Bakakashi, Obito doesn’t reply, he tells them that he hates the spirally Zetsu, he then asks where the White Zetsu has gone.
They tell him that he’s gone out to get some more intel. Obito realizes that they can go outside, one of the Zetsu’s tells him that they can move through the Earth, Obito tells them that he’s not going to get himself stuck in this hole forever, having such conversations. The Zetsu’s apologies for asking them about taking dumps.
Obito tells them that he’s talking about Madara, the Zetsu’s reveal that he doesn’t like talking to children, they also reveal that he plans to remove all the sadness in the world leaving behind the good bits, just like a dream. He plans to use a Genjutsu and force everyone to hop in, with Madara’s powers he’s able to do anything he wishes.
As Obito tries to get out of that place he start to remember other memories when he was with his with Rin, Kakashi and Minato. This helps him to keep on walking. As he nearly collapses, one of the Zetsu’s catches him. Obito is now looking at a photo of when he kisses a picture of Rin.
At this point, Obito is able to stand up in his new body. He’s also about to use the wood style on his ride side. He’s also able to balance properly on his right side. He keeps on training, reminding himself of older memories to help him grow stronger. He remembers of a moment when Rin helps him, she also tells him that she’s going to look after him.
At this point, Obito’s hair has grown, he’s gotten much more used to his new body, he just need to keep on going just a little more until he can get back to Rin and Kakashi. One of the Zetsu’s comes out and quickly tells Obito that both Rin and Bakakashi are in trouble. He asks what happens, Zetsu reveals that they’re surrounded by the Hidden Mist Ninja’s.
Obito goes on to hit a wall, it instantly breaks of his arm and he’s hurt. Zetsu tells him that he can’t break boulders with his body yet. Obito tells Zetsu that he needs to help Rin and Kakashi as soon as possibly. Zetsu’s body starts to unravel when he says to wear his body to help Kakashi and Rin.
Zetsu’s body gets Obito in it, it starts to get closer and closer to him. Obito asks if they’re suppose to serve Madara, one of the Zetsu’s says that he’s a good boy, the Zetsu who helps Obito asks him if he wants to save Rin and Kakashi. Obito doesn’t answer, he just says that he’s thankful to them for helping him. Naruto 603 ends here.
That was such an awesome chapter. I personally think that during next week’s chapter, Rin is likely to die because Kakashi was unable to help her even when he could. Also next week’s Naruto 604 is going to include some colored pages. Can’t wait for it!
Naruto Shippuden 280 shows by Deidara is such an epic time bomb just ready to go off at any time. Deidara is helped by White Zetsu, he escapes the cage which holds him, he then goes on a rampage when he notices Sasuke, he pursues him but realizes that it was all a trap.
Naruto Shippuden 280 starts off as Mifune and the others are talking about any information they have gathered. We see that Kurotsuchi arrives at the tent. She could be a Zetsu but she’s still let in. We see that another samurai tells one standing watch to get some rest, he also tells Kankuro to get some sleep.
At this point, he reveals to Deidara that he’s Zetsu. He calls out for help, he then sticks his sword inside the whole when Kurotsuchi arrives. She tries to investigate by asking him what had happened and where Kabuto is. Deidara doesn’t reveal anything.
Kurotsuchi reveals that Sasuke is also not dead and that he’s massive bomb did not work on him. She asks the Zetsu clone that he’s still alive. The leader notices that somethings wrong, by this he asks him the pass phrase. He says Mountain, but Zetsu says Distance Skies, he quickly slices him no matter what. The correct word was River.
Multiple number of Zetsu’s show up. They surround Deidara, he then explodes as he grounds himself and explodes. Both the Zetsu’s and Deidara escape. At this point they all chase him up. Okisuke says that he’s sorry for not stopping them to go.
Deidara reveals that he’s going to need some more detonation clay. At this point, Kabuto talks to Deidara to tell him that he can do what ever he wants to do to create his perfect form. He’s met by Chukichi which helps him but is no use because he’s summoned back and his jutsu fails.
Zetsu is told to find some clay in the ground for him to use to make his special clay. The Samurai’s detect where Darui is, this person also reveals that they have the ability to use Lightning style on their opponent. They keep on running, Zetsu notices that they’re coming, the lightning member activates his technique.
Deidara notices them and sets up land minds. At this point he tries to get away but at that point Kankuro’s puppet holds him, the lightning member is then able to hit, it doesn’t work. Deidara is happy now that he’s going to try and explode the person facing him.
When he goes to explode them, the lightning user is held back, Mifune comes and help him. He’s sorry that he wasn’t able to help because he was at the maximum amount of energy. Deidara and Zetsu get away.
Deidara is facing the moon, when he talks to White Zetsu, he mentions that he’s setup all the bombs and mines. Sasuke appears from nowhere at this point. Deidara is happy that he’s there because it’s his turn to fight him. Sasuke walks towards him, he says that all he wants to do is finish his business with Naruto.
The land mines start to go off. Sasuke starts to run when Deidara also follow him, the White Zetsu is captured. At this point, Deidara catch’s up and notices that Sasuke is on a high point, it seems that at this point, Kurotsuchi reveals that she’s Sasuke.
At this moment, Mifune arrives and quickly stabs Deidara, he tells him that it won’t work. He tries to blow up but doesn’t work because Mifune’s sword starts to spark. He reveals that he has a storage cell which he uses. At this point, Deidara tries to stab the ground but the sword breaks because it’s bed rock.
Kankuro summons the cage and quickly takes him back, he is then re-energized. At this point, Deidara is once again angered by the actions of Kurotsuchi and the others. They all keep on going while Deidara tries to work on the theme of his best bomb yet. Naruto Shippuden 280 ends here.
Deidara is such an awesome character, fantastic to see an episode specially dedicated to him! Although the fights have slowed down for that night, it’s just starting to get interesting! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 281, titled “The Allied Mom Force”, which is another filler about the village.
Naruto Shippuden 279 is a filler which isn’t featured in the manga. Still the story is pretty interesting, Hinata, Kiba and Shino are still good friends show how powerful their friendship can be as one of them is replaced by a White Zetsu. They show themselves when Shino plans something interesting.
Naruto Shippuden 279 continues on from last week’s episode as Shino, Kiba and Hinata go into a cave where they notice that many of the White Zetsu’s use this to transport themselves around. They are attacked by the White Zetsu’s but are no match for the number they have.
One of the Zetsu’s lights up a fire which goes directly to a crate full of paper bombs used for mining. Before this, the Sealing Corps try to seal everything, Shino, Hinata and Kiba try to go but fire from a torch hits the ground and directs itself right to paper bombs.
After the attack we see that Shino and Kiba appear with Akamaru there too. They decide that they need to find Hinata, they keep on searching. Kiba doesn’t sense the enemies anymore, Shino notices that one of the people from the Sealing Corps was killed. Hinata appears.
They find out that the person was killed then his chakra was absorbed. Therefore the explosion didn’t kill him. Shino says that the enemy survived and can take advantage of any of them, it could be any one of them.
Shino starts to ask question to both Kiba and Hinata. He asks Hinata why she can’t use her Byakugan, she replies that because the Sealing Team’s barrier jutsu was incomplete when it was activated it disturbed her Byakugan. Shino then asks Kiba why his nose isn’t working. Kiba asks how Shino can prove if he isn’t the fake. He says that the enemy didn’t touch him.
He also says that some of his insects could have been affected but he doubts that too. They all tell each other that they aren’t the enemy. Kiba goes one way, Shino goes the other, Hinata is also left alone as Shino seems to think that Hinata doesn’t trust him.
One of the members of the Sealing Corps is seen alive when he’s killed. They all hear the scream and run towards it to see. They notice that he’s also been killed, Kiba notices that he’s got a cloth in his hand, he smells it and attacks Shino quickly. He shows him that he had a cloth in his hand which shows that Shino could have killed him.
They all get ready to attack on another. Shino tries to convince Kiba why he isn’t the fake, after some talking, they are all spread out, all suspecting each other. Shino decides to come up with an idea. They try to play a game of Rock, Papers, Scissors. Shino suggests that the person who loses will have to answer a question.
They play the game, It seems like a harmless game but they have to play it to make sure that they are the real ones. They keep on playing. Shino loses and he refuses to answer the question. At this point, Kiba gets angry and attacks Shino. Hinata also attacks Shino.
The surroundings of Shino is set on fire when Kiba and Akamaru attack Shino with his Getsuga. We see that Shino’s body burns into ashes. At this point, we see Hinata get more angry, she attacks Akamaru, he’s down. She then transforms into White Zetsu.
Zetsu tells himself that he’s going to die here because Kiba’s an easy target without the dog. Shino quickly appears and planned it all out, he was waiting for the fake to come out. He tells them that during the Rock, Paper, Scissors game he was giving out signals in which only one of the real team members would know. Kiba had known the signals.
Zetsu tries to attack but Shino had already placed his insects on him, he’s quickly killed. They now try to find Hinata. She’s found to wake up while Shino and Kiba looking at her. They get out of the cave, they talk about how they will defeat every single Zetsu in order to win the war. Naruto Shippuden 279 ends here.
That was a pretty good filler. Sorry If it seems that I rushed the review. Hopefully we’ll see some more awesome fight during next week’s Naruto Shippuden 280 episode, titled “Aesthetics of an Artist” where we get to see Sasuke with a lot of the other Akatsuki such as Deidara.
Naruto Shippuden 278 explains why the Medic Ninja’s are also strong, not just the ninja’s at the front line. We see both Itachi and Nagato walk around trying to find a reason why they’re there. We also see Neji who overused his eyes and was sent to the Medic are to get help, however this Neji was a White Zetsu who started to kill some of the Jonin Medics.
Naruto Shippuden 278 starts out as a bunch of shinobi’s are sitting down and trying to get some rest, they all talk to each other but have no hope. Both Kiba and Neji keep on looking. Neji keeps overusing his eyes when he falls down for overusing his eyes. Kiba tells him to calm down and go to the medic tents to get help.
Both Nagato and Itachi are walking, they discuss about the Akatsuki and how they were both used for a superior powers. Even this time they’re being used. Itachi thinks that when the time is correct Kabuto will use the Rinnegan and Mangekyou Sharingan to do anything he wants.
At the medical tents many people are injured and are at the end of their lives. Neji appears at the front, they ask him to halt while they scan him to make sure that he’s not a clone or an enemy. While Sakura helps some shinobi’s we see Neji walk in. We also see someone who looks very suspicious looking outside of Sakura’s tent.
Neji and Sakura talk, he says that he needs to work as hard as he can because he must be the one to notice things before anyone else. During that night, we see a Jonin Medic get murdered and killed by a man who we do not yet know.
That night, three people were assassinated, the Jonin’s gather and decide what they should do. Neji arrives and asks himself that it could be anyone from this place, it could be anyone even himself. While another person is watching from a distance, it seems that it could be this mysterious person.
Sakura gets ready to settle down at her tent when this mysterious person starts to walk towards her tent. Somewhere else, two Jonin’s are talking and asking themselves if they know the opposite person well enough, they discuss and it gets all confusing. Neji arrives at their tent
He asks where Sakura’s tent is, he tells them that he’s noticed someone following her. They say it’s tent three. The mysterious person walks into the tent while Sakura watches. At the other tent, it’s revealed that Neji is the bad guy and he stabs the Jonin Medics.
The mysterious persons thanks Sakura for her help and gives her a love letter, he reveals that he likes her very much, she then says thank you and tell him that she’s already in love with someone else. Before he leaves he says he’s sorry and says that he must be a great man.
Sakura sits down and remembers Sasuke. At this point, we see him leave and Neji behind him. Both Nagato and Itachi are talking, he finds out that the user is preventing them from encountering the enemy. They keep talking and try to come up with a plan to all this nonsense.
Neji walks behind Sakura and asks if she’s okay. He says that they must not get discouraged because it will be a bad thing. The real Neji is still at the place where he rests and keeps on arguing with Kiba and Akamaru. Hinata is also watching with Shino, he says she should also not overwork herself.
She says that she is doing this to protect Naruto because this war is about him. We return to Sakura’s tent where Sakura and Neji are talking, he asks her where Shizune is, she reveals it, he tells her that he’s getting an idea of who it could be. Sakura reveals that she’s treating Tonton.
Neji mistakenly says that it’s better than a bad hand injury, he then asks if they’re be able to rejoin the battle. Sakura then stupidly says that Tonton, who is a pig, can still weave signs. Neji says that it’s a good thing that they can still weave signs. Neji asks Sakura for her help because his hand is still hurting.
Sakura tells Neji to sit down. As he approaches, he grabs a Kunai from his pouch and tries to cut Sakura. But out of nowhere Sakura quickly smash Neji with her monstrous strength. Neji finds out from Sakura that Tonton is an actual pig and cannot weave signs.
Sakura asks how he was able to get in undetected. She remembers that the only way they can transform into someone else would be to actually take their chakra, which Zetsu was able to take from Neji. White Zetsu is impressed at Sakura’s knowledge. Sakura tells some other people to take care of this White Zetsu while goes to report to HQ.
Somewhere else, two shinobi’s are faced by a White Zetsu who’s transformed. They are both killed at the lake. At the HQ, they receive multiple reports about this incident. They found out that the battle before was just to collect chakra to which they can attack at night.
They also find out that they’re White Zetsu’s who are able to take form of any person whose chakra has been absorbed. Shikaku keeps on thinking of a plan to counter attack this. He’s pressured and he tries to calm himself down. Naruto Shippuden 278 ends here.
That was a good episode, specially seeing Sakura’s monstrous power. Also nice seeing that Hinata still has strong feelings about Naruto, and her will to protect him is strong. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 279, titled “White Zetsu’s Trap”, when Hinata, Shino and Kiba are all captured by a White Zetsu within a cave.
