Credit for the spoiler goes to Fahim. Awesome as usual! Questionable choice in music though ^_^
Break down of the new issue will be on Turkey day/(Thanksgiving)/Thursday or Friday at the worst depending on the release of the translated manga.
Well this week also saw the first transgender character in the Naruto world… it seems like it any way after Inoishi screams “he” and “him” from the tallest mountain he can find. But in the previous issue one guy says the bag is light and that “he can tell its a girl” and then after unzipping the bag his partner confirms “you were right… its a girl.” So either Inoichi and his horrible haircut (busniness man in front, party girl in back) a) is a horrible judge of gender b) a mistranslation c) Sasori/Haku syndrome… you read the panels and decide.
It seems Naruto and Fukusaku will not be able to “fuse” because the 9 tails chakra won’t allow it. The primary reason to fuse was because you need someone to have your back while you enter sage mode because it takes a few minutes of meditation to reach this point which would make you vulnerable to your opponent for those few minutes. Not being able to fuse with Fukusaku doesn’t prevent Naruto from entering or maintaining sage mode but he won’t have him there to protect him like Jiraiya did to have those few minutes to enter sage mode to begin with. What do you think the solution to this problem will be?
Ibiki makes another reference to Rikudou and refers to him as “one” of the first ninjas. This word “one” is important because they made it seem like he was the first and pretty much the creator of the ninja world. Now it sounds like they are leaving the door open for there to be more just Rikudou who started the ninja world… possible implications on the future of the story?
I don’t know why but it was good to see Konohamaru again, not as good as it would have been to see Rock Lee or Maito Gai but I’ll take what I can get. He used to annoy me but he looks like he’s slowly growing up and may be a cool character in the future. But why is he all sweaty? What the hell was he doing around that corner? PERFECT SEXY NO JUTSU!
*Random ninja walks around corner* Hey Konoha…ma.. What the F*&K are you doing back here? People are dying out there! Gaaaaaah! Put that away you freak!
The last lines read “Will they figure out Pain’s secret?!”
God I hope so, we all figured it out like 100 issues ago and I don’t care anymore unless thats what triggers Nagato to come out and play.
The last line reads “Konoha and Naruto”. Does this signal his return!? I hope so. Things are intense and I really, personally need him to come save Kakashi’s ass so that I can sleep well at night knowing that the great copy ninja will always be there to tuck me in at night… JK I would be really pissed if he really is dead for good though…. Naruto hurry the F^&K up!
P.S. Some of the new people reading the blog are lost on the Swayze jokes so here’s a little lesson in magical world of Swayze…
