Naruto 610 – And Then There Were Ten (Tails)

If there’s one thing that happens from time to time (in manga especially), it’s that there’s the occasional chapter/episode where it’s more conducive towards watching/reading than it is to actually writing/discussing it. This week on Naruto, that’s pretty much the case, as it’s pretty much a blur of action that’s fun to read, but leaves not much to be discussed. And so, just some quick bullet points this week:

  • Seems like the reason Madara wasn’t in the picture last time was that he was busy prematurely summonin’ good ol’ ten tails. Did a bit of a disappearing act last week… but yeah, came back in style only like a page in. Seems like they’ll be trying their technique to summon the moon soon as well.
  • Naruto and Co. sure look like they’re in some deep trouble at the moment to say the least. Makes me wonder how the heck they’re possibly going to counter this without some kind of reinforcements… which I suspect will come sooner rather than later. The question is: who will it be? The Kages, Sasuke, and the other members of the Shinobi forces are all in play at this point and it’ll be intriguing to see how it works out. Orochimaru?
  • Not quite sure how much of a coincidence this is, but the ten tails getting it’s first real major part in the six hundred and TENTH chapter seems quite uncanny…
  • And well, I suppose that’s about it for this week. Lotta action and fighting as the story rolls along. Just one of those chapters where there just wasn’t much to talk about, but a beauty to the eyes in terms of readability. Onward to next week!

    Author’s Note: With Thanksgiving comin’ around the corner, here’s hopin’ all you readers out there’ll have a good one filled with turkey, enjoyably family interactions, and/or stuff like parades and what not. XD

      “Vegeta!, what does the scouter say about the Juubi’s power level?”
      “It’s over………….over……… O_0. *scouter breaks*

        IT’S OVER 9000!!


      • November 21, 2012 at 6:54 pmJust Passing By

        No… IT’S OVER 10000!!!

      ok I cannot see a haxor technique happening on the good guy side since the Ten Tails is supposedly the mother of all haxor chakras so seriously I can’t see some eight or nine tails nuke destroying it. And even if it would be tough enough to hurt Ten Tails I’m sure Madara and Obito wouldn’t just stand there and watch it happen. That said how in the world is Naruto and co getting out of this one? A full pack of Kages couldn’t handle Madara alone, now it’s Obito, Madara AND Ten tails put together, granted though I guess the good guys have unlimited chakra right now.

      Side note; This has been bugging me since forever, There has never been any implication that Obito implanted another sharingan in place of his original to get the EMS, and you can see that by the fact that his and Kakashi’s eyes still look the same. He unlocked his mangekyo when he was like 14-15 maybe? How is he not going blind? Sasuke started going blind just a few chapters after getting his and Itachi went through the same after a few years.

        Sasuke didn’t have the 1st Hokage’s regenerative cells in his body. Obito’s blindness is kept at bay due to his accelerated healing.

      I can see it now… the series is going to end after this fight and everything’s all happy.

      …and then it’s revealed they’re all inside the genjutsu.
      Happily ever after, the end.

      • November 21, 2012 at 5:35 pmSuppa Tenko

        Cake cocku Dory death ne?

      • November 21, 2012 at 11:13 pmCrook

        Lol, I’d like to see that, but Kishimoto noted a few (I think 2) months ago that the series would be ongoing for at least another 1.5 years.

      • November 22, 2012 at 4:47 pmKurisu Vi Britannia

        I see it also! And the Madara in the real world is cynical and wants to cast a Genjutsu where everyone is at war!


    • November 21, 2012 at 5:55 pmKishimoto

      watch out when sasugay enters the scene :D

    • November 21, 2012 at 5:57 pmMichael

      Half of the people on Naruto forums are complaining about the 10 Tail’s UGLINESS….
      I mean, did you expect it to be pretty looking?
      Masashi Kishimoto did a great job with this chapter by giving us pure action.

      • November 21, 2012 at 6:29 pmanon

        well, i didn’t expect it would have a d*ck for a head for sure

        • November 21, 2012 at 8:39 pmArri-att

          shame on you then. Expect better next time.

        • November 22, 2012 at 2:49 amRickyMack

          better than the vagina faced karka in guild wars 2

    • November 21, 2012 at 6:01 pmAtenp

      Well Sasuke probably isn’t all too cool with the events set in motion by Obito and Madara, since its completion would deprive him of his revenge plans.

    • November 21, 2012 at 6:49 pmDa5id

      So why did the Akatsuki need to capture the entire Biju in order to make the Juubi when all they needed from 8 and 9 is just a little bit of Chakra?

      Also, is anyone thinking that the Juubi’s going to be taken down for NOT having all of 8 and 9 inside it, thus being incomplete?

    • November 21, 2012 at 7:10 pmNeo

      Is the reinforcement still haven’t come? How many chapter is that since they are running after the edo tensei zombie is sealed?

      • November 21, 2012 at 8:05 pmZero Hour 17

        In reality it’s been about 20 minutes since we saw them. The flashback was just for us, it’s not like Obito was telling that story so that’s 3 weeks and with only 19 pages per chapter, the fight scenes are probably 2-3 minutes per chapter

    • November 21, 2012 at 7:19 pmRyuuzaki21

      what happened to the power levels

    • November 21, 2012 at 7:54 pmYanDaMan

      Kakashi + Guy doing the fusion dance and merging sometimes down the line.

      Calling it.

      • November 21, 2012 at 10:05 pmVagrant

        Enter Kakaguy!

    • November 21, 2012 at 8:04 pmZero Hour 17

      Atm, without knowing the extent of Juubi’s power, it seems beating it would be as simple as killing Obito and then sending it to the other dimension, but I doubt it will be that easy

      • November 22, 2012 at 2:47 pmK C M

        Naruto was given a lot of chakra from the other tailed beasts at least He should surprise everyone, I mean what was all that talk about knowing all their difficult names and mocking tobi/Obito for not knowing them.

    • November 21, 2012 at 8:06 pmLK

      I’m waiting for Naruto and Sasuke’s fusion technique in resurrecting the power of the six path and taming 10 tail.

      But yo, Nine tail is so gangsta, even Kakashi is a fan.

    • November 21, 2012 at 8:30 pmTingster013

      And suddenly, Rin appears!! “I’m not dead at all” It is all a lie!!! And Obito woke up, this is all a dream. Nope, he got knocked unconscious.

    • November 21, 2012 at 9:39 pmHiro

      Clash of the Tailed Beasts. Huh.

    • November 21, 2012 at 9:52 pmSilentrax

      Great chapter! I don’t know what’s going to happen next, but I am confident that Naruto + co. will be able to stop the Jyubii. I do have a feeling that Madara is going to double cross Obito, and maybe become the Jyubii jinchuriki, but who knows? I am sure that Obito and Kakashi will team up to save the day, since the author already set that foreshadow in previous chapters (Recall all that “talk” from young Obito about being unstoppable with Kakashi).

      I am ready to shift the story back to Sasuke and see what he’s going to do for the war. Since a lot of Uchiha abilities are based on Japanese religion, I have a feeling that Sasuke is going to the Land of Yomi (underworld) to learn about the reason for Shinobi system and gain new abilities (I believe 8 God of Thunder were born from Yomi, which would fit Sasuke’s abilities). LOL. Can’t wait for the next chapter!

    • November 21, 2012 at 10:05 pmL002

      Well, I am a little shock in how the Ten Tails, according to the Kyubbi, has no will of its own. But is more shocking is how the Ten Tails can be easily controlled by Obito and Madara. You would think, even though he controlled the Kyubi like it was a piece of cake, Madara would have some problems controlling the ten tails.

      I don’t know what Suigetsu had found in that scroll that could “rule the world,” but I doubt it is any shocking compared to what we have here.

    • November 22, 2012 at 3:10 amCelecia01

      OMG, if even Madara needs time to prepare for this Moon’s-eye jutsu thing, then it must be pretty damn deadly! I am enjoying this fight immensely, but I still can’t see how the shinobi can win. Their just completely outmatched this time. Their combo attack was pretty good though.

      Also, I find it funny how insignificant Obito has become in the face of Madara and the ten tails when not a hundred chapters back, he was considered the biggest threat there was.

      • November 22, 2012 at 8:37 amZero Hour 17

        Well 100 chapters back they thought he was Madara, no surprise the real Madara is the true threat

    • November 22, 2012 at 2:49 pmBoozerX

      Enter Sasuke!!!

    • November 22, 2012 at 2:53 pmK C M

      The only person who defeated the ten tails was the Sage of the Six Paths and since all the other Tailed Beast confirmed that Naruto is the Sage of the Six Paths whatever in addition to them giving him their chakra, at least I would expect that Naruto has a mysterious Power that will stop the ten tailed beast. I walso wonder if He will kill it or seal it in his body just like the Six Paths Sage.

    • November 23, 2012 at 9:26 amHalfDemonInuyasha

      I’m just hoping the “surprise attack” doesn’t work. The whole henged-switcheroo techniques are fine to work on earlier enemies, but when they started working on the likes of Kakuzu and Pain…if it works here somehow, I will have lost all faith in the story.

      Though, I’m sure, if not the Jubi doing something (either a new technique or just taking it without a scratch), then Madara and/or Obito will do something to foil it; absorb the blast with the Rinnegan, warp it away with Kamui, full Susano’o, or something.

    • November 23, 2012 at 2:54 pmnarutokun1

      Darn good of a chapter
