Once in awhile, you get a chapter that either leaves you wanting more or wishing that you didn’t have to wait another week for the next one. I’d say this one qualifies as one of them. A flashback covers half the chapters this week, and there’s just not much to talk about here aside from the fact that it was nice to see the effort Obito and Sakura had to put in (literally trial and error) to find Sasuke, as well as the fact that the only reason he ends up joining them again is because he managed to switch spots with Sakura’s acid-burned jacket. Considering the alternative—it might’ve required that someone be swapped instead of something—I’d say things worked out quite nicely here for our cast, and that’s it for the most part here.
Naruto’s chugging along slowly, and here’s hoping the next chapter provides less recap and more development. At the very least though, there seems to be some kind of special announcement in the works (new movie?), so guess we’ll see.
