Finally all the stupid arguments that it wasnt the 4th can finally end. Impure world resurrection is an interesting technique but it has one weakness the souls cant stay in our world after theyve moved on.
Pandaman FOR PRESDIENT
This chapter still never explains the chakra limit of the edo bodies. Kishi better inform us soon.
Btw, i find it funny how Hiruzen thought he stopped the last coffin when he actually did nothing.
Another thought......how the hell did Kabuto manage to obtain Deidara's dna?? He was a new member to akatsuki and completely blew himself up. The explosion itself was huge there couldnt have been anything remaining.
This chapter was decent, it was good to see some of the questions reguarding Edo Tensei clarrified but it still seems like there is a lot more to be said. Kabuto said that Itachi's Sharingan and Nagato's Rinnegan will be intact but that still doesn't fully clear up the question of how those abilities might be limited, only that they can be used to some extent. I still have some doubts as to whether Itachi will be able to use the Mangekyou or not, if so and he can use it without going blind or dying from overusing Susanoo, he would be essentially unbeatable unless his spirit is released as was the case with Sasori, which I think we be kind of a cop out. Giving Itachi and Nagato the power of their bloodlines without any of the drawbacks would just make them too over powered I think, they would still have a chakra limit I suppose but that wouldn't really matter because they still wouldn't die and if they got captured it would only be a matter of time before they could use their incredible ablities to escape. The allies were able to trap Deidara because he is limited to his clay bombs but if Itachi or Nagato were trapped like that it would be easy for them to escape.
Naruto's training was basically just a repeat of Naruto trying to form the Rasengan, and Fuuton Rasengan. Its really hard to get excited about this technique when his process is basically exactly the same as what we have seen in the past. We have seen Naruto go through this "struggle" many times before, the drama has really warn off, I don't really see the point of these pages showing Naruto failing to form the technique and then saying he won't give up, that's just self evident at this point. This technique at least better have some interesting effect, if its just a big explosion it will be incredibly lame.
Its interesting that we keep hearing about Shisui as though his techniques are somehow essential but so far I haven't figured out what is so different about what his abilities were and what Madara's are. Madara was able to control a Kage and the 9-tails so I don't see why Shisui's technique would really benefit him much at all. I am really curious as to what Shisui's place was in the plot. I get the feeling that Madara knew Shisui well so I am still very curious as to what the details were behind his death. It almost seems like Shisui dying was not a part of Madara's plan, if it were I think he would have taken Shisui's eyes back when he died but that isn't how it happened. We still don't really know the finer details of what happened between Madara and Itachi so I am still hoping we get a good flashback to explain some of that.
I am still enjoying the banter between Kabuto and Madara, to me they are the most interesting characters at the moment and them trying to out wit each other and keep each other in check is interesting to watch. Kabuto seems to hold the upperhand in military might but one on one Madara obviously still seems to be the more deadly of the two. Kabuto's strength seems to be mainly that he has a lot of powerful ninja under his control but as he implies in this chapter for him to fight Madara directly would be bad news for him, which is probably why Madara is sticking to him. If Kabuto can hide himself away he might be able to beat Madara tactically but if Madara can get to Kabuto he is in trouble. I was also interested in Kabuto's trump card, I got the impression that he was not talking about the 6th coffin. Both Madara and Kabuto seem to be confident but of the two Madara seems to be the one who is acting threatened. He threatens Kabuto's life in this chapter but he is really only doing that because he still doesn't understand Kabuto and that seems to frighten him a bit. Kishimoto has done a great job of giving us two villains here that could each be worth of being the end game. While my instincts still lead me to believe that Madara will eventually win out, it really is hard to say for certain, Kabuto is a beast and it really seems like he could become much more powerful very soon if he gets his hands on the right people/things.
