–Break down of Naruto Manga 426 below–
I’m really sorry that the break down was late this week but if you understand Thanksgiving then you know its like the laziest day in America each year. We just sit around all day, eat lots of food and watch football. I’m still sore from the annual flag football game we play every year on Thanksgiving and I have a large gross looking bruiseon my shoulder that’s turning all kids of weird colors. Anyway, that’s why I’m behind but its back to business now! It was a good (not great) issue of mangathis week and we’ve got some stuff to talk about but a couple things were obviously left out to the frustration of many a reader. Speaking of frustration, have any of you been following the DATEBAYO thing? But lets talk about the stuff Kishi decided to include in this issue of the manga.
Naraku laid the smack down and pwnd a Konoha nin with this giant beast of judgment scene above. I like the judgement angle of his power but it sucks that it rewarded the coward with his life. I’m also a bigger fan of fast moving hand to hand combat and jutsu rather than this mystical stuff. But this kind of power translates well into the manga as apposed to the hand to hand stuff that translates well in the anime. Several issues back I asked who seems to be the coolest realm/path of Pain and Naraku was one of the most popular. Are you still digging this character or does he need to be pwnd ASAP?
The crew dealing with Animal realm’s petting zoo has split into two parts, one led by Inoishi and the other led by Ibiki. In a zombie or scary movie this would be the part where someone dies, usually the lovable token black dude or the annoying prick that no one likes. In this case it may be the crazy interrogator who is covered in scars from being tortured himself… Ibiki. Ibiki does make a fatal mistake when he says “I am your opponent!” Translation: I am the one you will kill shortly!
Good luck against Animal Realm Ibiki, you’ll need it.
OMG! They are spending so much time showing us nothing when it comes to Naruto’s training in frog land. It seriously climaxed way back when it showed his sage eyes. They should have just stopped checking in on him there, it would have made it even more awesome when he returns to Konoha. It’s not even worth adding a survey question for this one.
Konohamaru has a flash back that has Naruto playing the part of Sensei. This flashback motivates and makes Konohamaru believe that he stands a chance against Naraku so this must be a powerful jutsu unless Naraku is a serious perv. But what is it?
Konohamaru grew a pair and threw down a challenge that seems to have bought Ebisu some time. We have scene nothing but ultimate sexy no jutsu from Kono but Naruto showed him a technique so hopefully he has some sort of skill level at this point. I’m happy to see Kono come into his own and I say it’s over due! This bodes well for a time skip after the invasions as well (feel free to crap or cheer on that thought in the comments section). But that depends on Kono surviving a fight with Naraku…
The last lines say “Where is Deva Pain Headed?!” I think we all know the answer to that question. Can we start singing the funeral march now for Tsunade or should we wait till the end actually comes? Then the last line reads “Next issue, terror!!” I can’t take to much from that last line because that could mean anything but neither hints at anything to do with Kakashi. We’ve done two polls now on whether you guys think Kakashi is dead or not and both were nearly 80% believe him to still be alive even after last issue where he is sitting around a camp fire talking to his dead father! Was that really the end of Kakashi? Does it end with him talking to his dead father at a camp fire? I know he saved Chouji and all but honestly I’ve felt like shooting a missle at Chouji more than a couple times so I hardly think that was the way a great character like that should go out! I’m not running another poll on Kakashi’s death until we see him again in a future manga.
Thats about it for this episode, hope you enjoyed it. A few quick things. I’ll have the best theories from the THEORY SUBMISSION POST up in a new theory post later in the week (great submissions so far, keep it up!). And alot of you email me about user name or icon issues, all of which are covered in the FAQ/ICON/USERNAME link that is in the user bar on the right top side of this page in the catagories section. Other than that, lets hope for more answers than quetions in the next issue and I’ll keep on the spoilers as usual.
