Naruto tries his hardest to fight against Sasuke in an effort to stop him while Sasuke just seeps on Kurama’s chakra allowing him to fight against Naruto as they’re both tired and unable to battle.
Naruto 697 begins as both Naruto and Sasuke’s attacks are launched into one another. It causes a large explosion in the sky consisting of large winds and massive thunder. Everything in the area quickly disperses, Kakashi feels the intensity of their power. Both of them fall out from the sky, the hears of Hashirama and Madara have been removed.
Both of them fall off from the attack, both are really hurt. Sasuke is angry that he’s still alive. He quickly launches his Amaterasu at Naruto to which Naruto uses Kurama’s chakra to disperses it away. Sasuke realises that Amaterasu won’t work on him, in which Naruto quickly creates clones and uses them to kick him him while he’s out of commission for a second.
Naruto punches him while Sasuke tries to also punch him back. Sasuke removes his sleeves to take out a signed seal for shuriken to which he uses to get rid of the clones. However Naruto punches him and creates a Rasengan. He tries but falls down after being too exhausted.
Sasuke takes this opportunity to kick Naruto, then goes ahead to punch him in the face. Naruto gets back up and wipes his face. They both keep on battling when they remember the time they had previously fought.
Sakura wakes up when she notices how long it’s been since they’ve been fighting. They are both exhausted and nearly out of chakra. Kurama tries to build more chakra for him when he notices that Sasuke used his Rinnegan’s ability to absorb Kurama’s chakra. He gets up and brings a Chidori, he mentions his farewell to his one and only friend! He goes for the attack when the chapter ends.
Naruto is getting really good, both of them are fighting like mad to win this battle and only 3 more chapters left. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 698, it’s going to be fantastic!
