-Break down of Naruto Manga 433 is below-
Some hits and misses this week with the new issue of Naruto Manga available for all of us to comb through like the crack addicted fans that we are. This post, much like last weeks post is arriving a little late due to a combination of school and a Friday night movie watching binge that lasted into the early morning hours. The Wrestler was the best movie I saw this weekend. It was much more depressing than I originally anticipated but well worth a watch if you are looking for solid acting and a well paced and told story from a unique perspective. Tomorrow is also the Superbowl which the local team (Arizona Cardinals) are the big underdogs. I’m not originally from here but I’ve lived here long enough to root for them tomorrow. The best part will be hanging out with my friends and eating some good food, the game is just the facilitator.
So lets get back to the important stuff in life… manga.
We saw Naruto lose his sage mode in the last issue and I thought for sure that this meant for certain that an ass beating was going to be handed out by Deva Pain, this would eventually be followed by a heroic comeback from our hero who never quits. Much to my surprise it just wasn’t time for that yet. Emphasis on yet. Naruto put on his wife beating face and played the anger card a little longer in this issue even though his sage mode had worn out… or had it… we’ll get back to that in a second.
Pain sees what he thinks is his opportunity to strike as Naruto’s Sage mode wears off. Even though he was still re charging after his last Shinra Tensei he seemed confident that this was his opportunity to take out Naruto. As he charged at him I couldn’t help but think the same thing that Deva Pain was probably thinking “Here comes the shit storm!”. This is where Naruto gets his beat down, this is where someone is going to have to step in and help. (Not Shikamaru! :P) This is where things get bad right???? Not exactly…
Ever since Pa Frog asked the question “How do you look left and right at the same time?” and Naruto had that stupid look on his face, we all knew the clones were going to be involved some how. So Naruto decides to have a couple hang out back in frog land, which he fused with, channeling natural energy so that when the scroll is used to summon them Naruto can release the jutsu and gain the Natural sage energy that they had been gathering.
This is similar to what he did during training when he was adding an element to Rasengan except while doing that he was splitting his chakra making him very tired and suseptable to losing control of Kyuubi. When he does it this way he may lose minor amounts of chakra by doing Kage Bunshin but the fact that Naruto has such deep reservoirs of chakra means that it isn’t really noticeable, making the Natural energy gained well worth it.
If Jiraiya tried to do something similar it wouldn’t work out nearly as well. Kakashi had mentioned how insane it was that Naruto could create so many Kage Bunhsins and still be ok. In fact he said he was the only one that could do such a thing. With this in mind, Naruto may be the ultimate Sage considering once he practices this technique a little longer he could have hundreds gathering sage chakra while in battle. So seeing him perform some of these moves using multiple clones in sage mode with numerous Rasengan’s I have to ask the question no matter how mad some of you may get for me asking it… Is Naruto already a better Sage than Jiraiya? Has the student snatched the pebble from the teachers hand? Has he even surpassed his father?
Back to the manga… Naruto regains sage mode by collecting the natural energy that his clones had gathered after he releases them and then delivers a boot to the head of Pain followed by a Rasenshuriken from hell with love. Unfortunately Hungry Ghost cereal is back in full effect, which is what we were all worried about at the end of last issue. I only have one thing to say to this “Thank you God that it wasn’t laser head!” It’s a little emasculating for Pain to be in the fetal position while chubby ghost realm absorbs the blow but what ever gets the job done.
My worst fears were coming to fruition when I saw the previously pwndHungry Ghost Realm resurrected and thinking to myself how much I feared advancing to the next page to see all 6 were fully functional once again… I was mostly fearful of the return of Laser Head though >_< Sooooo freakin annoying!
The good old smoke bomb trick eh? Surely Pain won’t be suckered by such a sophomoric ninja movie maneuver… right?
Naruto bear hugs hungry ghost realm and gives him a fore arm shiver that presumably puts him out of commission again while the Rasenshuriken flies unabated toward Deva Pain who is still in a strange state of shock by the amazing smoke bomb routine that Naruto just put on. This would have worked just fine and dandy if it weren’t for the blinking green light that Naruto isn’t noticing on Pains forehead protector…
Pain is fully recharged and ready to fight Naruto one on one just like Kakashi had to except for one minor detail… Naraka Pain is still fully functional and could potentially bring the rest of them back while Naruto fightsDeva path at full strength. If only there was a way to take care of that annoying prick…
Well that takes care of that… Naraka Pain went down quicker and easier than Harshytkage’s girl friend. So now it’s down to just the two of them. Sage Naruto, whom I believe has one clone left back in frog land loaded with Natural energy and Deva Pain at full strength. Someone asked in the comments section a few weeks ago why I hadn’t posted a poll asking who would win in a fight between Deva Path and Naruto… this is why. Now we are ready to ask the all important question, who will win this fight?
