Naruto 660 explains Shukaku’s past to which his previous Jinchuuriki was an old man named Bunbuku, who told him that he was his friend and that Bunbuku reminded Shukaku of the Sage of Six Paths. On top of this, Naruto keeps on pulling, he can’t seem to put Kurama back in, to which after just a short time Madara pulls all of the Jinchuuriki’s really hard to which Naruto gets pulled out of Kurama and thus looses him.
Naruto 660 begins as all the Beasts begin to be pulled really hard towards the Gedo Mazo. Naruto tries to disable Kurama Mode but doesn’t work. Madara mentions that once he’s grabbed them he won’t let go. Kurama falls onto the ground while Naruto is pulled towards the back of Kurama.
Zetsu tells Madara that he must insert the Bijuu starting with the first tail. In the mean time he should insert the other seven leaving Bee and Naruto to the end. Naruto mentions that he won’t let him have Kurama. Madara realizes that he’ll need some time. Shukaku is first to be pulled in to which Gaara quickly acts and forms hands on the chain trying to stop it from being pulled.
Shukaku looks at Gaara and remembers when a younger Gaara asked him why he hates human to which he mentions that he does, on top of this Gaara adds that shouldn’t he be protecting their village. Shukaku mentions that he won’t protect them as they’re worse than the beasts.
We go even back to see an old man who is given some food. The soldiers mentions that they must be strong guards in order to look after the Jinchuuriki. Shukaku talks to the priest telling him that they don’t even call him by his real name, he mentions that he doesn’t mind as long as Shukaku knows his name.
The old man mentions that it’s not necessary to separate beasts from humans in the first place as long as you have real friends you can find peace at heart. Shukaku mentions that he’s weird and that there would most likely be no one else like him. To which the man mentions the human heart is a reflection on the water’s surface, the mouth says things opposite to what the heart really feels.
In truth the hidden heart wants people to accept each other, even when someone is a beast. Shukaku mentions that he reminds him of the Sage of Six Paths to which the old man cries and thanks him as they’re the kindest words he’s said to him.
Shukaku mentions that there is really no one like him while the old man mentions that there are and there will definitely be someone that will save and guide you too. Once he accepts the person’s hidden heart he will understand. The man had the Kanji on his left and right hands are translated to Heart and Accept/Receive. When joint it creates the sign on Gaara’s head.
Naruto shouts for Gaara not to lose. He then remembered that he used to hate him, however when he met Naruto it was all thanks to him that they became friend. Madara launches a Susanoo Blade to which its quickly blocked using Shukaku’s absolute armor.
The sword comes out of Shukaku’s hand and breaks the current chains that are there, a few moments later it rejoins again at a different point to which Madara is able to quickly pull Shukaku. Gaara is hit by the Susanoo sword. Shukaku tells him not to overdo it. Gaara tells him that he’s not a Jinchuuriki and finally he can stay up as late as he wants as his equal.
Shukaku realizes that he’s just like Bunbuku, the old man who was his previous Jinchuuriki. Madara quickly pulls all the remaining Jinchuuriki. Naruto is about to get pulled out to which Kurama wants to tell Gaara something, we don’t hear anything about this, at this moment Naruto is left behind as Kurama’s power is quickly taken out of Naruto! Naruto 660 ends here.
What an awesome chapter, It’s awesome to see Shukaku’s back story and how it will ultimately help Gaara and Shukaku’s relationship. Furthermore it’s good to see that Naruto and Kurama have finally split, and if Madara does take all the complete powers of all Jinchuuriki, the full form of the Ten Tail’s will appear. Will Naruto let this happen? Can’t wait for the next Naruto 661 when we’ll see this fight continue!
