(Thursday 7/10) Is Pain already dead? If all of Pain’s bodies are dead and being held together by the piercings wouldn’t it be an assumption that since Pain himself is pierced thoroughly that he is in fact already dead as well? Did he kill himself to become one of his own monsters or is he alive and just recreating himself through these other bodies in his own image like a god? “Pain as a God” was referenced in the manga by a member of his clan when Jiraiya was entering the city, so this is also a distinct possibility. This was brought up in one of our older posts and thought it needed to be brought to the fore front again. What do you think?
(Tuesday 7/8) Hey everyone,
Another week, and hopefully not another boring issue of manga from our favorite ninja Naruto. Last week we did the “Bring them Back!” survey and you guys really responded with some great answers as to whom you’d like to see return to prominence in the world of Naruto. The funniest was a late entry by SCHY who really slid in at the last second to take a spot in the best of section below with a comedic take on a Rock Lee return to glory. During the break we also saw LastScorpion take the helm of the all mighty iareawesomeness blog and did a feeling out for what he plans on doing filling the time between friday and tuesday. I thank him greatly for contributing his efforts and hope that some of our loyal readers will check out the blog on the weekends now to see what else LastScorpion can bring to the table.
This week we have a fun survey, taking a small break from the theory survey’s and it should be up by the time you are reading this. The survey’s focus is on Anime this week rather than theory, hopefully the new issue of the manga will give us some new stuff to talk about. I’m just glad WordPress kept it together this week and didn’t erase the comments from the post like what happened last week. Thanks to everyone for not going ballistic when over 80 comments filled with awesome theory were forever lost like the clan of the Whirlpool.
Well that’s about it for now, take our new survey entitled “The Anime Survey” below and check back often for updates on the Naruto Manga 408 spoiler script and pics with new theories to follow. I’ll start linking pages again if people start bringing up theories (the ones that get the most attention reference a particular manga issue and page!) Also check out the final results for the Bring them back!” survey before you go and you’ll be hearing from me again shortly.
P.S. If you like to comment (and I can think of a few of you who do…) then you should sign up HERE so that you can have a user name and icon instead of the stupid goofy monster thing they put next to your name automatically.

Fill in the blank Hentai is:
(Note to people taking survey: the Hentai question is for the statistical section purposes and will not be part of the best answers postings. So just calm down people that are emailing me, its a valid question that also happens to be an entertaining statistic but I don’t think we will get an honest total. So that question may have been pointless.)
Last weeks survey…
“Bring Them Back!”
Submissions for last weeks survey: 523
Some stats for last weeks survey:
I posted the top five characters…(Hinata passed Gaara, I’m surprised!)
27.8% of you would bring Hinata back as a main character.
22.7% of you would bring Gaara back as a main character.
18.9% of you would bring back Shikamaru as a main character.
16.4% of you would bring back Neji as a main character.
10.1% of you would bring back Rock Lee as a main character.
(One of you kinda argued that Shikamaru was a main character already and asked if I even read the series. I don’t think coming in to tell Naruto to get off his ass constitutes Shikamaru as a main character. When I say “main character ” I’m talking manga written directly about or for a character not just an appearance once every 50 issues. Thanks for raising the question rumpelselshin your faith in Shikamaru is unquestioned.)
Some of the better early results from this weeks survey BRING THEM BACK!:
Funniest response so far:
How would you make them a major part of the story again? : I think Lee would be made a major character because in the future he *does* style his hair up to make Sakura fall in love with him…but Gai comes along and breaks up their romance by setting Lees new hair style on fire creating a super sayin hair style, while the fire ultimately killing Lee…Kakashi will then kill Guy and a civil war will break out in the land of fire and in Bleach manga, because of the huge fuss from Lees funeral. (not Guys funeral as hes not the main character) ^_^
(Jeremiah’s comments on this submission: I don’t even need to comment on this. The power is strong in this one.) 🙂
Some of the best results for “Bring them back!”:
How would you make them a major part of the story again? : Temari and Kankuro die and Gaara looses faith in love and friendship, he goes crazy and hunts Akatsuki for his biju. He finds naruto and joins him on his quest to find sasuke as he knows it will probably lead him to akatsuki. and before you comment saying if gaara is psyco again he would attack naruto, but as naruto defeated him with the biju’s power so he knows he will be no match for naruto so he waits until he has the biju again.
(Jeremiah’s thoughts on this submission: I think your the only one that wants to see Gaara go bad guy again 🙂 He was really cool as a bad guy but I like him on Naruto’s side.)
Hinata submitted by Wes.
Why did you choose this character? : I see a real future for hinata and naruto maybe no one else does but i do…
(optional) How would you make them a major part of the story again? : Maybe close to the end naruto and sasuke fight one last major battle and naruto goes fully demon fox against sasuke new powers but somehow naruto is still winning and naruto loses total control and is about to kill sasuke and hinata steps in and finally confesses with all her heart how she feels about naruto and that she reallys loves him and stops him from killing sasuke probally unrealistic but hey….
(Jeremiah’s thoughts on this submission: I wonder if the series will take on some Shojo elements. Many long running action manga do.)
(optional) How would you make them a major part of the story again? : They should be a major part of the series because they hold one of the three great eye techniques. I beleive they are one of the keys to unlocking the history of the shinobi. They have lived a long time and they have a big role in the future. If a shinobi was able to unlock sharigan, byakugan, and rinnengan they would be unstoppable. Plus hinata and naruto are likely to end up together. That could create some conflict for the future of the manga.
(Jeremiah’s comments on this submission: That would be very cool if both those characters came back to prominence in the big picture. It seems so far that Byakugan is really inferior to the Sharingan, I wonder if that changes in the future?)
How would you make them a major part of the story again? : I would have her get into a major fight. I don’t think that she’ll end up with Naruto *glares at Sakura* so the best way to end her affection would be if she died in combat protecting Naruto
(Jeremiah’s comments on this submission: I would hate to see Hinata die 😦 )
How would you make them a major part of the story again? : He and naruto end up training together. There shikamaru see’s that naruto has great amounts of chachra and he tells naruto ways that he can create jutsus and naruto will have some cool attacks no one has ever come to perfecting. Like making a space traveling rasengan,shadow clone jutsu and even making his own bloodline limit using the 5 elements to defeat pein and finish akatsuki.
(Jeremiah’s comments on this submission: I actually like this scenerio, this might happen if Kakashi dies… something else I would hate to see 😦 )
How would you make them a major part of the story again? : I would make him a major part of the story by sending Pein to get the nine tails and injuring Naruto in the fight. Then before he captures him i’d have Neji step in and use his byakugan as the perfect counter technique to the six forms of Pein because he’d be able to see attacks coming from any direction. but in the end he’d lose to Pein and possibly die pissing Naruto off and making him let out like 7 or 8 of the tails from the Kyubi and killing Pein.
(Jeremiah’s comments on this submission: That would be a really cool exit for Neji. Solid as always Vincent, thanks.)
Gaara submitted by Alec
Why did you choose this character? : I would like to see Gaara come back to see how he’s doing now that he no longer contains the Shukaku. I want to see what he is capable of doing and whether he can still use sand or not. Also, assuming that Naruto is captured and the Fox is pulled out, seeing Gaara before that might give hints as to how Naruto will be affected.
How would you make them a major part of the story again? : When Akastsuki attacks Konoha, if the series ever gets around to it, the Sand comes in to help, this could happen because of what the Leaf did for him in the beginning of Shippuden. As the Sand comes to help we see Gaara fighting alongside Naruto and the two reminiscing, while Baki apologizes to Kakashi and Gai for what happened three years ago, Kankuro and Temari get into trouble but Kiba and Shikimaru come to bail them out. Unfortunately as Kazekage, it is unlikely that he will leave the Sand. Gaara would only come to serve as a sort of sneak preview as to what happens to Naruto assuming the Fox is removed.
(Jeremiah’s comments on this submission: There have been alot of Gaara submissions so far and some really good one’s too but this was the most solid. Only flaw is that we already know that Gaara can still use sand. He used it to shake Naruto’s hand at the end of that story arc after the Shukaku was removed. Other than that I can’t imagine this not happening. Great job!)
(Side note: Some people have emailed me complaining that a lot of the same people get posted…Alec and SkyHigh being examples…In response to this I say that if you comment often, participate in the survey’s often and always bring good stuff to the discussion then why not keep posting their stuff. I don’t have favorites either. I’m sure Martin is going to submit something soon that I totally disagree with that pisses me off because it kills off Gai some how but Martin writes good stuff and so I post it. Take a deep breath, write something solid, it doesn’t have to be crazy or ground breaking and your stuff will get posted. Thanks to all the regulars who keep submitting good stuff and to all the new comers who are holding their own.)
