Here we go. We got Sasuke and Naruto facing off with Madara with their new found powers for the first time, and it’s a pretty fabulous show of new techniques. We got Sage techs, Six Paths techs, and all around its ends up a pretty epic fight. Seeing people fight him without panicking was a great change compared to the norm in particular, and it was nice to see how even now, both Sasuke and Naruto have obtained powers that represent their respective personalities and strengths. Indeed, it’s just fitting that Sasuke can actually visualize the “limbo” Madara while Naruto can only feel his presence, and there’s also something to be said about how he ends up leading things here tactics wise too.

In the end however, the best thing for me wasn’t so much the epicness of the aforementioned as it was Madara’s subsequent reaction to everything. Because if there’s one thing I’ve been used to seeing people do in this series, it’s trying to pluck out people’s eyes and using them as his own. This time around though, Madara’s literally flying over to people and just snatching eyes like taking candy from a baby, and it’s quite something to see how Kakashi loses his eye just like that. Gotta say, I enjoyed that scene a lot more than I probably should’ve, and it’s pretty hilarious to see how he just takes the eye and moves right on to Obito. Somehow, I don’t think this second attempt will work out as well as his first, and I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how things work out here. Count me in as excited to see what’s coming though.


    1. still can’t believe madara can just snatch kakashi’s eye like that. And he’s probably gonna snatch obito’s eye as well at this rate. I’m getting confused with who’s eye is who’s now too.

      Ok, sasuke has itachi’s eye. That part is easy. Nagato’s eye is madara’s eye. And then obito took nagato’s eye and implanted the left eye into him. Think madara somehow got his own right eye back. And now he has kakashi’s eye which was from obitos. And I guess he’s gonna go take his own eye which is in obito’s eye socket right now. So I guess he’s gonna take it and swap the eye he got from kakashi which was originally obito’s with the eye that’s his from obito? And maybe now obito will get both eyes that was originally his and then finally can use susano’o.

      Please correct me if I’m wrong. I’m pretty confused myself at this point of time.

      1. I really doubt that madara will just simply swap the rinnegan in obito for his sharingan. It would not be the smartest thing to do to just hand it like that so he can use it against him. I bet he will take the rinnegan go back out of the kamui dimension and then crush obito’s eye.

      2. Has anyone considered the possibility of removing Madara’s eye (formerly Kakashi’s eye) by having Obito use Kamui on that eye? Like, couldn’t Obito hypothetically rip out either of Madara’s eyes with Kamui?

        Then again, I guess over-powered hax moves are only for Madara, Naruto and Sasuke.

    1. For all his apparent invincibility, even Madara cannot pierce the plot armour protecting Naruto and Sasuke. As for a legendary technique that can lend a hand in defeating him, I suggest both ‘The Will of Fire’ and ‘The Power of Friendship’.

    2. Also, how rude of me to leave out Ten Ten. It’s not too late to dismiss the possibility she will jump in and vanquish the weakened Madara with her Sage of the Six Path weapons, which would probably lead to the fulfillment of her lifetime dream as stated in the Naruto Official Guidebook, where she aspires to become a female Hokage, but alas that is very improbable.

  1. Pretty good chapter.
    I enjoyed it a lot. Naruto and Sasuke power up is definitely impressive.
    For some reason Madara taking Kakshi eye like it was nothing, I just couldnt help but laugh a little. I mean he took it way too easily but I dont think he will keep that eye for long since Kakashi himself already said he was going in blind.

    Also I don’t think Obito Rinnegan will be destroyed or Madara getting it for that matter. With Kakashi now losing his eye and Obito clearly diying, could Obito possibly give it to Kakshi? Might be a bit of a stretch with Madara there and all now but I dont see Sakura dying so its possible that maybe Obito will take it out himself, give it to Sakura and use Kamui to get her out of there just a theory though.

  2. The thing I loved about this chapter is even with the OP duo fighting the OP villain, the plan making and tactics don’t stop.

    Now we know just what the Limbo: Hengoku can do. At first I thought it was just a more precise version of the Shinra Tensei.

    I have to admit though, it took a while for me to understand what was going on. Kishi never stated to us what the Limbo was about, except he SHOWED us what the technique involved.

    I haven’t been so confused though since the explanation on Obito’s Kamui.

  3. Once again, a proper eye implant that takes no time at all. Madara truly is a wizard. And apparently a character from Stardust Crusaders too, because that shadow of his is definitely a Stand.

    1. Yeah, I don’t get it. A couple hundred chapters ago and you needed a medic nin like Rin to surgically remove/implant an eye and now Madara’s ripping them out of people’s faces and just slapping them in like no big deal.

      1. Well, we didn’t see Rin actually remove the eye, we just assume it was a surgical procedure. But I think it was as simple as popping it out and slapping it in, especially since it was a matter of minutes after Obito was crushed.

        Obito wasn’t a medic nin, yet he implanted Itachi’s eyes into Sasuke. Himself with the rinnegan also.

        It might be inconsistent or just plain foolish, but it’s Madara. He’s been snatching eyeballs since the early days with Izuna, I would like to think it’s second nature to this guy now.

        (On a side note I would be dying if he accidentally slapped the eye in the wrong way.)

  4. This chapter has so much more happening. And one thing to note is that naruto dropped fourth hokage’s kunai. It feels like something’s gonna happen with that kunai, whether it be fourth hokage coming in for an attempt KS or naruto using thunder god technique out of nowhere.

    Sasuke is finally showing some potential with his sharingan. Ever since he got eternal sharingan he hasn’t been showing any notable achievements if I’m not mistaken. Either way, I’m looking forward to the next chapter.

  5. Yoink!
    Now I wish that they use this eye-popping/switching madness for the next Rock Lee’s Springtime of Youth chapter! Imagine everyone swapping eyes, just for the fun of it 😉

  6. I remember how i commented before how Obito would give his Sharingan to Kakashi before dying.

    And now after this chapter, that becomes even more likely.

    Like i said before, Obito giving his Sharingan to Kakashi before dying is too symbolic for it to not happen.

  7. Kali sticks, awesome. It never occurred to me that such weapons can suit Naruto. Swords are more suited for Sasuke but ….I just get the feeling that it “doesn’t fit” for Naruto.

  8. I’ll just put this out there but did Naruto use that Hiraishin Kunai (in his mouth)? It wasn’t apparent. BTW Kakashi isn’t useless without the Sharingan, just less intimidating now. And if Sakura fails in her one task asked of her then that would be an epic fail. Overall, I like where the battle’s direction is going…it’s unpredictable.

    1. He was good when he was younger, but I’m sure that quite a bit of his skills since getting the Sharingan have become a bit reliant on it so that if he ever ends up not having one, he’ll be forced to retrain himself to get used to fighting without ever using one, at least when it comes to opponents as strong as if not stronger than him. Even his trademark Raikiri jutsu is completely reliant on the Sharingan to work effectively.

  9. The more stuff Kishimoto tries to add to Naruto to add ‘depth’, the more convoluted it gets and the worse it gets. I don’t even know what the flying fuck is going on besides Naruto and Sasuke apparently being the reincarnation of the Sage of the Six Path’s sons and getting a power up with Naruto getting all tailed beast chakra and Sasuke awakening his Rinnegan in his left eye and Madara pulling out more spells out of nowhere with now a SHADOW Madara and then stealing Kakashi’s (Obito’s) eye and implanting it onto himself within a matter of seconds without any consideration for fundamental surgical knowledge and I’m really just reading it because I want it to fucking end already.

    The action scenes Kishimoto draws are so fucking confusing I don’t even know what the hell’s what with the absurdly long jutsu names which make no effing sense and I’m just so lost that I want to give up entirely.

    I’m done. I’m so done I can’t even. I’ve lost my ability to even.

  10. Holy crap yea, kakashi’s only hax gets snatched by madara, how will this end, will sakura die, will madara finllay get his final leet hax upgrade. Will kakashi somehow end up with 2 sharingans well see on the next all new naruto shippuden hurricane uber hax chronicles lol
