I don’t know if there’s anything else to take away from this chapter other than the usual life lesson that “look can be deceiving”. Dealing with the Second Mizukage wasn’t as highly prioritized as the other Kages and now he’s going to make everyone regret it. That could’ve been because none of the Kirigakure (Village of Mist) ninjas present knew enough about their former leader to tout how how powerful he is, or simply the loud and obnoxious way he came off when he revealed the weaknesses to his techniques, but regardless of the reason, I have to admit that I had written him off quickly as well. As such, it comes as a pleasant surprise to learn that Kishimoto had more planned for this fight with the former Kages. I mean, if he’s able to pressure Gaara — one of the current big guns in the ninja world — then this fight clearly hasn’t shifted to “clean up” mode just yet.
Judging from how taxed the Onoki is and how forced into a corner Gaara is, I presume somebody’s going to have to jump in that lend a hand. Naruto looks gassed from his fight with Muu and Raikage too, so if I had to make a guess, B seems like the most likely possibility. After all, he hasn’t really done anything since joining the war except take a piss on the battlefield. Come on B, we could use a timely Bijuudama any time now. Just make sure you wash your hands first.
