Naruto 617

Naruto and friends launch their counterattack against the Juubi and the two Uchihas.

Sharing is caring: everybody gets a power up.

Naruto gives Lee the power up, and Kurama concludes by being able to link so many people to his chakra, Naruto has already surpassed Minato and Kushina. Madara and Obito maneuver the Juubi to attack, but the powered up Shinobi Army deflects the strikes. Moving in formation, Naruto and allies cut through some of Juubi's arms and head right for Obito and Madara on top of the Juubi. During the charge, Naruto feels that his left shoulder is still hurting from an earlier hit, but Hinata pops it back in, and Naruto and Lee severs Obito and Madara from the Juubi as the rest of the army jump onto and attack the giant monster.

Meanwhile, Sasuke, Orochimaru, Suigetsu and Jugo are at a wrecked village somewhere.


In the back and forth battle, it's once again the good guys' turn to hit back. So Naruto is hooking his friends up to Kurama's chakra pool rather than giving them a chunk. Not sure how much that technicality matters as long as it does the job of giving the good guys a boost. Obito and Madara got knocked off the Juubi, but they are rather difficult to deal with by themselves, and a Juubi that's not being controlled might prove even more dangerous. In the meantime, Sasuke and Orochimaru are still sneaking around looking for something. They've teased us for two chapters now, so I think it's about time we find out what they are up to.

  1. All I remember about this chapter is that they are still going on about Neji. If I were living in a ninja world and deaths of meaningful characters (i.e., more meaningful than random guy beamed down with the main characters in the original Star Trek) were as uncommon as they are in Naruto, I too would probably be so shell shocked when it finally happened.
