The raikage is truly incredible to have such power without a bloodline limit or special powerups or anything. This what they mean by KAGE level. And the stone kage appear to have many runs in before ith the raikage so he must be really strong too even with the little he showed he looked so dangerous.
I think this chapter has put kage level into a ture perceptive, shinobi like raikage, stone kage and the third/forth hokages are out there. Konoha in this era with tsuade and kahashi/gai can't compete with this in my opinion. I think when jiraiya, forth/third hokage died konoha went down hill bigtime powerwise. Naruto really needs to step it up, if he can show the raikage he can match him and bejond he would let him fight i think. Also it makes sense if naruto can't get by raikage why would he let him fight with so much at stake. Madara's true powers are still unkown and the raikage knows that, extreme cautions is a must. I think naruto needs to master the bjuu bomb first maybe even combine his wind element to it make wind bjuu bomb and then fight.
Also just curios how did the riakge know naruto's dad was minato? I doubt konoha would reveal it for the hell of it when the joint army formed but I guess theres no point in keeping it in the dark anymore, they do have a common enemy afterall. Oringinally the secret was kept becuase of minato enimes which seem to be stone and cloud shinobi he clearly as has had runs with them.
Not much else to say, shame he lost his arm against sasuke for no reason at all in the end. I still can't belive he CHOOSE to attack even after he saw the black wall of flames. This still seems random really.
I would tend to agree with the people who are assuming naruto was going to use kagebunshin for the FRS (though I also agree what what is he thinking if he was going to try that?.. switch out of RS mode into sage mode for that). If the fight were to drag out, I also agree that once naruto actually went on the offensive, raikage would have gotten an even more severe beatdown than Sasuke gave him.
as to the flashback at the end there, it looks more like bee will be using Naruto's signature talk no jutsu to turn raikage to their side.. outside of a very small group of leaf shinobi (tusnade, kakashi, sakura, and probably hinata for all the times shes watched him from the shadows) Bee apparently understands naruto better than anyone might have thought (through the bond of being hosts and a few fist bumps. which indicates (that like Naruto's ability to pretty much befriend just about anyone) Bee has another power working for him. in his case it appears to be an almost saiyan style physical telepathy where that fist bump is the contact point).
It also appears that there might be another family type bond between them, because that 3rd to last panel seems to indicate they met before. Some elements of Bees fashion style are already in place (the not quite konohamaru length scarf and dark sunglasses)
Wow finally a very nice Naruto chap really enjoyed reading it (:
Precisely. Naruto didn't even break a sweat or sustain any damage, he clearly had that fight in the bag. He just wasn't willing to do any damage unnecessarily. Raikage's out of his league.

i agree that naruto would own the raikage lol but don't you guys think we might be underestimating the raikage a bit?
i mean, sure he lost an arm to sasuke, but that was probably due to him being too emotional and not thinking clearly.. besides it was AMATERASU! other than that mangekyou technique, the only technique that was able to pierce through was chidori and that was barely a scratch. that lightning chakra armor is pretty bad ass..
and while the samurai knew of his nin-taijutsu as if it was famous, the raikage can have other techniques up his sleeve..
EDIT: Also, while tsunade seemed to be in awe of naruto's new power lol, the raikage didn't seem the least impressed. we know he sparred with killerbee in his bijuu cloak-form, so he's probably used to fighting a jinchuuriki, and has the chakra to match a bijuu..
DAMN I'M FCKIN GOOD !! :D I predicted almost everything that happened in this chapter:
From the moment that I saw Naruto's anger in Rikudou Mode, I was like; GO FUCK HIM UP NARUTO!! Naruto looks sooo freakin awesome in that mode.. though I got confused when he tried to use Kage Bunshin. I had a discussion with Paul Bee, that if Naruto uses Kage Bunshin in Rikudou Mode, it will be suicide.

That's why Gaara made that comment about: when did you guys lost yourselfs?
- I was suprised that Tsunade didn't let him go. Naruto will be going to the battlefield, thanks to Killer Bee ( like I predicted.. ), so this means that Raikage and Killer Bee will be fighting the previous Raikage, their dad ( well, Raikage's dad, not Killer Bee's :P ). Tsunade will be going also into the battlefield and when she does; she will be the one who's gonna fight Dan, her ex.
** I've to say; I have a strange feeling that Raikage is gonna " convince " Killer Bee, that he will be letting Naruto go into the battlefield, after that: Raikage somehows punches KB knock- out and still tries to stop Naruto.
I fkcin, LOVED this chapter a lot !!!
i thought i was lame that kishimoto pulled that "were really not brothers" thing outta nowhere, and a nother freaking flashback get on with the action already. oda, kubo and kishimoto are trolling right now.
Well what do you know Raikage and Bee aren't blood related. Nice flashback by the way.
Not saying you're wrong, but here's some clarification:

Minato truly did have that level of speed, purely through advanced chakra control (Sasuke can also do this, although not nearly as fast). It's the technique Minato used to catch Baby Naruto when Madara threw him.
Minato's Hiraishin technique is the teleportation/space-time jutsu, and on another level entirely. That's the one with the seals/Kunai. He also created a variant of it that allowed him to teleport the Kyuubi's blast away from Konoha by combining his space/time technique with a barrier.
Minato was famed for both of these techniques, although his signature move was Hiraishin (and of course Rasengan).
I agree that Naruto can probably get even faster if he perfects his control of the Kyuubi's chakra; Minato's own Flash Step was based on perfect control of his smaller amount of chakra, and Naruto has more to work with. Personally, I think Minato had a better knack for such fine chakra control, though. Naruto's always worked better with big techniques, although Sage Mode and some of his Rasengan variants were incredibly complex. At any rate, there's no shinobi alive stronger or faster than Naruto, so he doesn't have much to worry about.
