Thanks goes out to Fahim, who put together the spoiler we had earlier. Awesomeness as always. Breakdown of Naruto Manga 429 will be posted soon.
–Break down of 428 is below–
I RESET ALL THE SURVEY’s SO TAKE THEM AGAIN IF YOU HAVN”T ALREADY!
If I had to give this issue a grade, it would be like a B+ but it is also by far the dirtiest Naruto manga chapter ever, I explain below. I can’t give any issue of manga an A unless either Naruto or Itachi are involved, and Itachi is dead soooooo… Anyway, a lot of stuff did happen though and some things REALLY pissed some of the readers off, like ready to quit reading the manga level of anger. If you don’t understand what could possibly create such anger toward the manga then you obviously didn’t care or you may have even enjoyed it. Let’s get right into it, starting with the controversial panels…
You either loved it or hated it, Konohamaru dropped the proverbial bomb on Naraka Pain possibly putting him out of commission. Many people felt robbed seeing Kono perform Rasengan. They felt it took away from the mystique of the technique. Previous to this panel only Minato, Jiraiya, Kakashi and Naruto had performed this technique. But as stated in the manga, Konohamaru yells I am a Sarutobi, named after this village, eat my left ball. He does have excellent pedigree so its not like Chouji dropping the Rasengan or Ten Ten becoming the yellow flash, it’s the grandson of the third hokage. Also, does this really surprise anyone? He idolizes Naruto, even copied his Sexy no Jitsu, what made you think he wouldn’t want to do Shadow Clone or Rasengan? I think this stays very true to the character traits in the manga, including Naruto showing him that before the time skip after he had just learned it.
The size of the Rasengan was also a popular topic after the spoiler came out. People commented on how small it was, perhaps because he hadn’t perfected it all the way. I also thought the size was funny but then Kingbernardino brought up a good point, perhaps its a more tightly concentrated ball (Step Three). A tightly concentrated ball would put a hole right through a nin with a baseball sized Rasengan instead of a bowling ball sized one like Naruto uses. Which leaves the thought that even though Konohamaru used Naruto’s techniques, Ransengan and Shadowclone; he almost did Naruto better than Naruto does Naruto. He actually played that situation perfectly if you think about it. In two moves he found out more about this aspect of Pain, distracted and fooled Naraka Pain and then PWND him from behind. Very nice, quick, clean surgical kill… if Naraka Pain is dead. If not, still one hell of a job. The other thought is that Naruto’s chakra well is much deeper, thus creating a larger Rasengan. Either way, I give props to Kono and I can see him becoming a cool character in the future. But how do you feel about Kono dropping the Rasengan on Naraka Pain?
Yeah… Derrrr…. About F*&King time! In the worst kept secret/plot twist in manga history, they finally confirm that the actual Pain controlling the bodies is not any of the ones attacking Konoha. Nagato is sitting somewhere in his giant transmitting castle thingy, laughing cause it took so long for them to figure it out. Wow, chakra transmitters running throughout the body, receiving chakra from somewhere else, do you think someone is transmitting this chakra from perhaps outside the immediate area? Stunning… -_-
If the posts didn’t get 300 comments per I would go back and find out the reader who called this first but I’m so damn lazy that I can’t do it. Although many of you may have called it, one of you specifically stated that the tower in Pain’s village was the key and they did it first. These panels may confirm that. Someone want to lay claim to that comment?
After reading Shizune’s mind and entering through a very uncomfortable place, Deva Pain now knows that Naruto is at Myobokuzan. I don’t know how much good this does considering Danzou killed the only frog in Konoha that could teleport them their so they have a long F’n walk ahead of them. Now that they have this knowledge will they just leave? Weeell the teaser sentences don’t bode well for Tsunade. You would think that Tsunade will freak out now that Pain knows where Naruto is, try to attempt to stop him but then (“Pain is invincible”) fail horribly and (“and violent”) get put 6 feet under by Deva Pain. Do you think that is what the teaser sentences are hinting at?
That’s all for this week. Hopefully it will be another good week of discussion for all of us and enjoy the other smaller posts that come along the way. Once again, I really recommend the Six Sentences post by Ibikiteishi, which was phenomenal reading and very creative use of manga.
P.S. Lots of sexual inuendo in this wrap up… blame Kishi… Perv… Or Six Sentences… *Points finger at Ibi*
