Naruto 679 – Rebirth
Why hello there, Kaguya. Nice to see you again. How’s it feel to finally have an actual body and the ability to do things by yourself instead of proxying in the shadows? Good? Cool.
Too bad it’s anything but cool for our main cast. Because apparently, what Kaguya intends to do is absorb everyone’s chakra while transforming them all into an army of White Zetsu, and it’s like a scene straight out of some vampire fantasy where blood’s replaced with chakra and vampires are replaced with Zetsus. Kinda. Well, it’s a tad different, but yeah, the chapter’s focus is on Kaguya’s official return and her near-term goal, and it’s generally a transitional chapter without much development aside from this notion.
With that said, perhaps the question this chapter begs to be asked is what exactly the point would be to turn everyone into White Zetsus in the first place. Considering there’d be no one left to fight aside from Team 7 and the undead Hokage (at least it seems like they’re the only ones at the moment anyway) and the fact her chakra and abilities seem to be on a whole other level unattainable by any of the cast, one wonders what the point would be to just have a giant zombie army with no enemy to face. Unless there’s suddenly aliens or something…? I don’t know. Does she just want to demolish the ninja world as it is at this point in time…? Sure seems like we’re not exactly getting the full picture here. Guess we’ll see how it goes. At least we found out the name of the other brother in Hamura though.
