Naruto 618, the great wait pays of as Orochimaru brings back the first Four Hokage’s! Hashirama, Tobirama, Hiruzen and Minato all return via Orochimaru’s Edo Tensei, after he finally gains controls of his hands using the Uzumaki’s Shinigami Masks! The Hokage’s who know everything have finally returned and what could Sasuke ever want with them? Will they also go and join the war?!
Naruto 618 begins as Sasuke and the others reach a place resembling where the Uzumaki’s place was, it seems to be crumbling down after many years. They enter the house to notice a large number of masks hanging down, Orochimaru stares at them for a while when he picks a mysterious looking mask from the wall, mentioning that he’s found it.
Suigetsu mentions that he wants to get out of there quickly, Orochimaru agrees and mentions that they should now go to the place where all the secrets slumber. They walk throughout the town when Sasuke goes above a tank to look at the whole of Konoha! He mentions that Konoha has changed quite a bit! Suigetsu asks what Sasuke’s deal is.
Orochimaru answers by telling him that he’s chosen to diverge from the path of the village, however he’ll always have some sentimental value, he’s soaking all that in and coming to term with the consequences of his future actions and reaffirming his resolve. Suigetsu asks Orochimaru if he’s gone through the same thing. Orochimaru is confused.
Suigetsu mentions that it’s now the best time for them to accomplish their plan as all the heavy weights are out fighting, Orochimaru tells him that may be true but he’s missing one thing, he’s no longer his snake! Sasuke and the others approach Uchiha’s Nakano Shrine and enter it! They enter it when the flames ignite.
Orochimaru begins with his plan, he tells everyone to stand back and places the mask on himself! A large Shinigami appears behind him, we go to the past when Orochimaru tells Sasuke and the others, according to the information on the scroll, they need to retrieve the Shinigami’s Mask first, it was found at the Uzumaki’s Clan Mask Temple on the outskirts of Konoha.
You must allow the Shinigami to possess you in order to release it, they would need to slice its belly, therefore he needs to become a sacrifice, from this point onward he’ll be able to fully regain control of his arms, at the same time he does this! A large scar appears within Orochimaru, he also fully retains control of his arm! He then mentions that at this point, he’ll be able to fully cast the Edo Tensei!
Orochimaru also brings forth four lights, to summon those four they will need to donate something. Orochimaru tells Juugo to touch Sasuke with his Jutsu, this pulls out 6 different White Zetsu’s which were put into Sasuke’s body in order to monitor him! They all exit his body. White Zetsu asks how, Orochimaru tells him that he knew everything about their experiments on Hashirama’s experiments which includes sensing their presence!
When Orochimaru recovered his chakra from Kabuto, he also gained intel that he already acquired, he was also aware of the six Zetsu clones hiding inside Sasuke! Suigetsu and Juugo are told to take care of the remaining two when four of the Zetsu’s clone are used for this process! Juugo kills one of them and Suigetsu opens the other’s mouth!
Orochimaru enables the Edo Tensei No Jutsu! They all start to form themselves into four different people when Orochimaru transfers himself from his body to one of the Zetsu’s which Suigetsu was holding! He enter it and takes it over! And Finally the Four Hokage’s Finally Appear!! Looking all bad ass! They are described as the ones who know everything! Naruto 618 ends here!
What a fantastic chapter! Who could have guessed the ones who knew everything were the First Four Hokage’s! Hashirama Senju, Tobirama Senju, Hiruzen Sarutobi and Minato Namikaze, hopefully Sasuke gets the answers he’s looking for, it would also be awesome to see them join the battle! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 619 chapter, when we’re likely to see Sasuke ask the questions he’s been waiting a long time for!
