  • Naruto

    Nice to see team seven together again.

  • narutobleachop

    love it!! it brought tears to my eyes when Sasuke joined the war on Naruto and Sakura’s side!

  • uchihalord1994

    Epic moment! :’)

  • Zenkai

    Finally Sasuke did something right!

    Good to see him back.

  • Brother_Jolteon

    I see no point in Sakura being on the cover, even with her being the next generation of the sannin, she’s still useless. All she did was heal everyone, then went back to being a spectator while naruto and Sasuke stole all the spotlight….

  • ElementShield

    Kinda starting to like sasuke again.

  • SalvadorRamirez

    Lol sakuras hair its cool seeing this on the cover team 7 reunited

  • Chee Yang

    Ha! Sakura is sharing with Tsunade, while Sasuke and Naruto are using different ones.

  • Youmoronlearnfacts

    did sakura has does exagerated anime eyes 0.o

  • fishinabag

    great cover of the next Sanin. bothers me that Sasuke went back to some nameless snake after he showed off that cool hawk summon though…

  • Chee Yang

    You already have the answer, “she’s healing everyone.”
    Gotta be a badass medic to do that.

  • Chee Yang

    Notice they’re sitting on top of their heads.

  • Shippudencave

    It’s blue…

  • FutureLambo

    Well she was badass for those 3 minutes, too bad it took her 3 years to gather enough chakra for those 3 minutes….

  • FutureLambo

    I was thinking purple…

  • Tyler Casilio

    Sakura your hair is different than it is in the manga, weird lol but I like it better this way

  • monkey d goku

    i will never support the cover page with obito being unmasked thats how much im dissapointed with his character kishiii whyyyyyy

  • Mister L

    Woah… This cover art sorta reminds me of something from the good old days before they all wanted to kill each other. I’m satisfied :D

  • Gohan7861000

    Gotta be pleased with kishi for creating such a masterpiece. Vol 66! Can’t wait till I buy it

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    SOGUI…=D

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too…^_^

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    i know how you feel. it looks like the whole tobi was obito thing was decided at the last minute.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    It wasn’t decided at the last minute. Kishi just made it so obvious that it seemed improbable. He’s always said he’s always had who Tobi was planned.

    Not to mention the first time we saw Tobi he was standing just like Obito. With his arms behind his head.

  • Justin Burno

    She also has the jacket on in the manga

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Dammit Ino. Sakura looks much better with her hair down over her forehead. Just like Sasuke… and Naruto. Stfu Ino.

  • Drewtitan22

    “all she did was heal everyone”? wow just wow so she not a big direct combat fighter healers are a very important part of the battle. thatd be like saying shikamaru sucks all he does is make strategies.

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    This summonings have too much blue/purple on them.

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    I’m looking but I cant find naruto at the bottom.

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    Don’t hold your breath. She’ll start being useless in a few chapters again.

  • Gohan7861000

    So true. I pretty much thought he was obito ever since he got crushed.

  • Gohan7861000

    Lol in all honesty I think ino is hotter then sakura

  • Gohan7861000

    He said nothing about Sakura lolol XD

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    Oh, sorry their names are way too similar.

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    If naruto learned medical ninjutsu, he would become the jesus of the ninja world.

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    What are you on about?

  • Gohan7861000

    True that. Anyways someone needs to kill the ramen guy :D

  • Racim Afy

    Just seeing team 7 back together as a group. No fights between any of them, and especially the story. Its taken a turn for the better by switching the old facet that’s been going on for a while, which was the original plot of the story; Save sasuke. That notion was getting way too idiotic, for it has been years that Naruto hasn’t saved the guy. Literally was on the verge to quit naruto due to the charade that’s been going on for a while. It leaves me in awe that we finally get a turn for the better!

  • Hikaru Nakamura

    really, not trying to be mean, but he looks kinda older than in the manga

  • gostaekman

    You are not serious right? It was very well made and thought out. And it made perfect sense also.

  • jdoops

    hottest girl in naruto’s age group. The hottest is either anko or tsunade

  • Steed

    I was kinda upset. Sasuke spends most of the time being evil and trying to kill them and destroy the village and stuff, then he was like “lol jk I’m good now”. Eh, still glad he’s back.

  • Nick Kuma

    Sasuke is clearly below Naruto now!! And he needs to accept that kmt!! Naruhina ftw

  • Kirito

    Name of the snake is Aoda.

  • Keijuan Joseph Archer

    No offense, but I’m pretty sure that wasn’t meant to be a giveaway. Kishi was just playing up the goofiness of Tobi’s character. Having his arms behind his head wasn’t a trademark for Obito, but something that characterizes a whimsical personality. Naruto does the same thing. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen other characters do it to.

  • Gohan7861000

    I was comparing sakura and ino -_____-. Hottest would be mei, tsunad, shizune, temari, hinata, konan and kushina. Oh an anko lol

  • Shippudencave

    I guess Kishi wanted to make them look similar and team-like

  • Thetrueuchiha

    We don’t know what happened to goofy Tobi? Was he just a jutsu that Obito created to change his own voice because I find it strange that once be awakens his sharingan he hits puberty. Even with the whole zestu explanation it still doesn’t make sence to me.

  • Shippudencave

    Then How do you explain the fact that Tobi was the one that found Deidara’s arm that was sucked into Kakashi’s Kamui.. that was way back in the Rescue Gaara arc,
    The first time Tobi’s sharingan is revealed Kakashi is the one that see’s it. As the series went on the hints became more frequent,

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    IMO, Team 7′s comeback was quite stretched. I don’t feel like Sasuke should be a good person again, not after huge amount of deaths which he caused and after those bad words which he spoken.

    As for their progress in getting stronger, it is even worse. C’mon, Naruto is using Kurama’s powers not his OWN and yet ppl still are saying that he’s so strooong. No, he isn’t strong, Kurama is. Maybe his Sennin Mode is Kage worthy, but not worthy of older Kages – he wouldn’t have smallest chances with Hashirama without Kurama’s help.

    Sasuke also was and is cheating – for like 50% of the series he was using Orochimaru’s curse to beat up stronger opponents and now hes using Itachi’s eyes which gave him Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.

    So Sakura’s powers are the most legit now…

  • monkey d goku

    yea i heard kishi didnt plan the series out thats why theirs so many plot holes and i mean he really isnt a good villain he was a 12 year old who got friendzoned nothing makes sense thats why he did everything

  • Tyler Casilio

    No he already stated that he knows where the series is going and he already knows the ending

  • monkey d goku

    no he doesnt he use to but he said in a interview that he added another arc at the last minute thats still being planned and thats why he changed sasukes ways early he was still suppose to be bad

  • Tyler Casilio

    i thought this when Obito was revealed but then I thought about it and it makes total sense. If it was last minute we never would have seen the Kakashi Gaiden chapters. It really does make sense when you step back and look at the whole picture

  • Tyler Casilio

    Yes, I noticed this too. And Naruto’s jacket is usually zipped all the way up, just not right now in the manga. This cover is all over the place lol it’s still awesome

  • Tyler Casilio

    Um…Kishi is the one that created the series so whatever he colors things are the way they are supposed to be

  • monkey d goku

    he has an idea but he doesnt know how they will get their im telling you he said hes debating putting in a last arc meaning he would have to change this one up its not that big of a deal if he doesnt oda doesnt know where to take his show sometimes

  • whyuhatin

    i would believe that if obtio actually had believable explanations

  • Sasuke EMS

    Sasuke definitely have other plans

  • Isashi

    I dont think so.

  • Isashi

    I dont care because i read the manga, but i think the image of the notice on homepage can be a little spoiler!

  • RamenGuy (Tobi)

    Naruto and Kakashi want me dead (I don’t know whats up with him) but I wont give them the satisfaction. I need to follow threw the moon eye plan so I can have all the ramen in the world you see.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    lol no, mei terumi is beyond hotter than anko.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    hinata? hot? lol no.

  • Jesus

    Sasuke is like one of the shyts that you need and want to come out but should stay in as well so you don’t suffer from the pain.

  • Robert Peterson

    Hmmm… I don’t know about the couples, I really like both narusaku and naruhina. They both look good

  • Sasuke EMS

    The return of team seven is just the common enemy, when it’s over, I do not expect that sasuke want to live a happy life beside Naruto and the others, yes, he fights for konoha but it has its own reasons for this.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    if you’re keeping up he declared he will be hokage. pretty sure that means he intends to rejoin the village.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    he’s actually pretty damn strong, if you read the fine print he’s got nearly 100 times the natural chakra kakashi has, and 90% of that was being used to hold Kurama back. so yeah, had he not lost his parents, been an outcast, and been forced to hold back so much to keep the beast contained, he’d have been genius level as a kid.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    I too am conflicted, merely because Hinata has liked him since childhood and only been too shy to say anything, whereas Sakura’s feelings could be genuine too,after she got her head out of her ass pining after Sasuke.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    I wouldn’t say evil, its a pretty standard classic anti-hero scenario. on the evil scale his only real “evil” act was shooting through Karin.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    hottest character is a filler character, can’t remember her name. was actually only living hair using multiple bodies as chakra conduits.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    Temari only fits the definition of hot because she wears black in the desert.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    Cute is more accurate

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    people were saying Tobi was Obito ever since the 1 eyed mask (and the fact they had the same voice actor in one of the games before Nolan North took over, yes, Tobi’s joke voice is DEADPOOL). the only time anyone hesitated connecting the two was when Konan busted his mask off revealing 2 eyes.

  • Jeremy Pelletier

    yeah, his first real zinger was showing tobi with two eyes when Konan busted the top half of his mask off. made ya hesitate in thinking it was Obito.

  • Sasuke EMS

    exactly why I said that he is with the team seven, he will come back but not the way you imagine naruto, when this war is over will not only flowers and joy, will be naruto and sasuke like Hashirama and Madara at the beginning of the village. I do not imagine any other way

  • Gohan7861000

    Are you gay? Honestly an idiot would find hinata not hot/cute whatever.

  • fishinabag

    i know. youre kinda missing my point

  • Chee Yang

    Naruto is on the forehead Gamakichi.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Yup. Made me actually consider him being Madara or something. I admit that after that I followed the crowd and started calling him ‘Madara’. That is until Kabuto showed him his ‘trump card’. Then I jumped back to Obito.

    Something that always worked as proof was the lack of explanation behind Rin’s death. It was to convenient to leave out.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    lol ‘cheating’.

    * SPOILER ALERT*

    Don’t they have too? I mean… Madara stole Hashirama’s DNA and awoke the Rinnegan and is currently hosting an almost immortal body- albeit the attacks of Obito’s new found power as the Ten-tails Jinchuriki.

    Tobi has both the Sharingan and the Rinnegan. Not even taking the Ten-Tails into account (which, by the way, he tamed in less then a single chapter) Now he basically a Demi-God.

    I don’t think Naruto using Kurama’s power is ‘cheating’ anyway. He had it inside of him and learned how to use it. Just like he had the wind element and learned to use it. That’s like saying if Tenten fought Sakura and won using a kunai, she cheated because it’s technically not her own power.

  • hellninja123 .

    then why did he say he will become hokage

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Yeah. Keep talking this ****. Then we’ll remember that Madara’s EMS could tame Kurama. Once Sasuke shows he can do the same thing and suppresses his chakra and Naruto’s stuck in Sage Mode- at beast- we’ll see who’s ‘above’ or ‘below’. No matter what, once they fight poo’s gonna be serious and dangerous.

  • hellninja123 .

    that could very well happen but not right now lol

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    I feel the need to bring up how she reacted to Sasuke fighting along side them at first. Her head is still so deep in her ass…

    Let’s put it like this

    Sakura hits Naruto all the time and nothing happens.
    Hinata barely slaps Naruto and he shifts the tide of an entire war.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    What part of, “I’ll be the one to burn it down, not you.” did you not get? Sasuke’s as bat-shit as he was when he impaled Karin. More-so even. He’s using the Ninja Alliance to eliminate rivals that also want to destroy Naruto. He’s gonna do it. Not Obito.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    You weren’t really being mean. xD

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Well, duh. With all that hair how couldn’t she be?

  • hellninja123 .

    true even i thought obito was tobi i mean come on yeah he was dead but it covered up the eye he got taken out

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Most aesthetic character, in my opinion, is actually Kurenai or Konan. I’d say Rin, but we never got to say her mature.

  • Gohan7861000

    Lol good one :D

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    ;)

  • Gohan7861000

    LOL are you forgetting that naruto beat kurama and took his chakra and then kurama became friends with naruto. Naruto being so strong is the reason kurama hasn’t got adsorbed yet. There are also side effects to attaining kurama’s chakra, it can damage your body an senin mode is stronger then minato and jiraiya. The uchiha bloodline as the eyes, so they might has well use it-__-, the curse mark depends on whether sasuke can handle it, his body is the reason the curse mark works and the eternal mangekyo sharingan was taken by sasuke because he was going blind.

  • GokuSSG

    Every anime has plot holes. The ones in naruto are not even that major anyways. Tobi is not really a villain. He just hates reality, wars, despair and so on. He wants to create a world of winners. He makes a pretty good villain considering all he has done. Kishimoto himself stated tht he planned on giving everyone a big role(kakashi, Sakura, hinata etc). Where did he say that he is “debating”? Has for sasuke being “bad”. He still is, he wants to be hokage to stop the past from repeating itself, but he doesn’t care about what others think. So he is just not as bad as before. You can tell he plans his story out, by reading his interviews, the time road to ninja came out in Japan, he was already dropping hints about the hokages. “Yes, a faceoff between Naruto and Sasuke is waiting as well.
    “First of all ‘beep!’ come(/comes) back and because ‘beep!’,
    ‘beep!’ resurge(/s) from ‘beep!’. And then the bijus gather together and ‘beep’ to ‘beep(/win)!’.” From last year

  • Isashi

    I think Naruto will be Hokage like Hashirama and Sasuke his right arm just like Madara was! (this time, right arm wont turn a traitor)

  • John Jones

    Sasuke wanting to be Hokage is not a good thing, he still intends to shape the world in his own way (e.g. his desire to burn the Juubi down because the tailed beasts are part of the corruption in the world, and how he said that he would be the one to delete the past, not Obito). All that Hashirama’s speech did was teach him to not just be a revenge-filled brat who’s gonna murder everyone for the sake of it, he’s instead wants to use the position of power of Hokage to get what he wants and most likely kill those who get in his way, which will inevitably be Naruto trying to stop him. After Sasuke says he wants to be Hokage, Naruto remembers Itachi’s words that it is the one who is acknowledged who will become Hokage, not that the one who is Hokage will be acknowledged. You have to earn that respect, and that flashback was Naruto realizing that Sasuke isn’t quite on the right path yet. He still needs Naruto to beat some sense into him ;)

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    the whole obito tobi plot was a fan idea for the last 5 years, nothing alluded to it. the kakashi gaiden only showed how he got the sharingan, it didn’t give any hints to him living. it was all a fan idea that it seems kishimoto lazily planned out and took from the fans.

  • Miles Jones

    Technically she wasn’t hot then. It wasn’t the real her.

  • Miles Jones

    I’m tired of people saying that she’s still useless. She’s INSANELY strong now and she managed to keep all of the ninja on the battlefield alive. Not only that, but throughout the war she was saving peoples lives. Besides, medical ninja are not made to be in direct combat, yet if she has to she can defend herself just fine.

  • Miles Jones

    The amazing Nolan is Tobi!? New found respect for Tobi!

  • Miles Jones

    I may spend some of my extra money to buy vol. 58 through the present. These have been some amazing chapters and I have yet to support the series by actually paying money, except by using Crunchy roll for a month.

  • GameFreak2O12

    …Would be funny if Orochimaru’s group ambushed him on their way to the leaf. He said he couldn’t serve them free Ramen and then it happened

  • Gohan7861000

    I’m sorry, but hair looks the same and when he took off his mask in front of kisame was enough to proof that tobi is obito. It gave a lot of hints to him living, those rocks crushed him, but he must have used his power to faze through the rocks and then madara saves him an manipulates him. Kishimoto knew of obito’s existence ever since the third lost to orochimaru, so obito was already thought out way before the fans could b*tch about who is behind the mask.

  • Steed

    That may be, but it just felt very anticlimactic to me IMO.

  • kuni

    not likly

  • kuni

    still trying to figure out why i hang around this community with people like you.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Yep…^_^

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    And who helped Naruto in beating Kurama? His mother and Bee. Also, he didn’t rly beat him, only stole his chakra when he was down (even Rasen Shuriken couldn’t do much to him, except shocking him a little). As for Sasuke – he now spams Amaterasu and Susanoo all the time, he isn’t even using normal Jutsus anymore.

  • manoahvdvelde

    They’re drawings. Drawings aren’t hot. At least imo. ;)

  • Chōmei

    Especially when she doesn’t have that bun on her head.

  • Chōmei

    Oh, that woman who kissed Naruto!

  • Chōmei

    Naruo and Sasuke should kiss each other again.
    -
    Yes, I am trolling.

  • Chōmei

    Has Sasuke actually killed anyone? Because Danzo commited suicide with that Tetragram sealing Jutsu. Orochimaru technically never died too. Karin didn’t die either… I don’t remember Sasuke killing anyone in the series.

  • Chōmei

    That’s funny,

  • Chōmei

    That’s why I love him. He’s a spammer. ^.^

  • Nick Kuma

    Some samurai here and there :P

  • Gohan7861000

    Naruto only had a small bit of help from bee, while kushina trapped the kyuubi, but the kyuubi was still able to fight back. Naruto managed to beat and take its chakra with a little help from kushina and bee. Has for sasuke, right now he needs those kinds of attacks to beat his opponents, since “normal jutsu” won’t affect anyone.

  • Gohan7861000

    You have the best comments in this forum lol

  • Davi Vivdich

    naruto looks like a boss here

  • Hikaru Nakamura

    so you’re saying obito, madara, yagura, bee, nagato, kabuto, kakashi, and rikudo senin are weak too!? obito became so strong because he has one rinnegan from nagato and becoming the jyuubi jinchuuriki, madara obtained rinnegan from having hashirama’s cell, yagura became the 4th mizukage with the sannbi, bee uses most of jutsus with hachibi, nagato got his rinnegan from madara, rikudo senin is also strong because he is a jyuubi jinchuuriki, kakashi got the sharingan from obito, kabuto has cells from sound 4, kimimaru taka and more. and you’re saing they’re not storng because of that!? Then most people in naruto ae weak, but I don’t think so

  • arcnate

    i would say samui is the hottest in the series

  • Inuzuka28

    Although Naruto’s power is mainly Kurama’s. Kurama is now a part of Naruto, so it can all be taken as Naruto’s. Naruto also is the one to use it, the way he uses it is his own power.

  • Revered

    So. Freaking. Awesome.

  • monkey d goku

    first not every anime has plot holes dont try and bring other anime down with naruto and did you really just try to justify tobi being a good villain you must not go on youtube let me do the math for you theirs 4 videos on why hes a bad villain and in the comments the only people who try to justify him are the naruto fanboys who cant take criticism you just said sauske is still bad because he doesnt care what anyone thinks about being hokage listen your not gonna change mine and everyone else point on tobito its not hard to see where kishi failed not taking away from the series but come on he made obito as someone who never turns on their friends and is now trying to kill everyone from his village because of a a girl you can say oh hes doing it to stop the hate but hes doing it by killing everyone in his way and it all started from a girl and sasuke is good now he wants to be hokage to change everything and their are plot holes and this isnt jus me talking this is a whole anime community who watches naruto

  • whyuhatin

    obito isnt a good villain at all alot of the issues people have with how kishi handled him was that tobi and obito seemed like 2 different people they acted totally different and how ever you wanna put it he did it for rin

  • monkey d goku

    i agree that was to show how kakashi got his sharingan all these naruto fans wanna be like we knew it was him from that uhhh no you didnt know one did and how does him taking off his mask to kisame prove it he told kisame he was madaraa and kisame believed him watch the anime which is another plot hole that kisame couldnt tell the difference between a 25 year old and madara

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Thanks brah. I try.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Oh I know. It wasn’t so much that as much as the placement of it. You see, in the manga, Kakashi Gaiden was shown to us between part 1 and 2 of Naruto (or, if you only watch the anime, between Naruto and Naruto Shippuden). So we were introduced to the character of Obito and in the following arc we were introduced to a character with similar mannerisms (at the time, though more goofy), a similar color scheme, identical hair and the only eye he seemed to have was the one that opposed Kakashi’s.

    It was the perfect set up to making us think Obito right away, Making it seem almost too obvious.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    i can see where you stand on it, agreed. are you a chapter reviewer yourself?

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    technically zetsu saved him. obito was screwed at the moment. but nothing at any point in the series hinted that he was obito until kakashi realized his tobi’s sharingan was connected to his. fans were talking about the theory for ages, it looks like kishi just used what thousands of fans already thought up of.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    his destroyed mask from the konan battle never proved anything, it was a tease of who me might be.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    anyone from the akatsuki could have tracked it down. zetsu, deidara knew where to look. the only time we got any idea was when kakashi realized his sharingan was connected to tobi during the war.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    It seemed half-assed quite frankly. At no point in the series did it hint that tobi was obito until when during the war, kakashi realized that their sharingan was connected. but before that there were no clues. for years after tobi appeared fans already came up with a fan theory that obito was saved by zetsu, and lo and behold kishimoto basically thought up of the exact same story for it. i was expecting better, how cliche it turned out to be.

  • monkey d goku

    no i jus say if i see a problem again im not taking away from the series its just that their are certain things that i want explained better hes done alot in terms of moving the story so i just expect i really good explanation like kishis done with all the other villains

  • Gohan7861000

    Lol the fans didnt even know who obito was, when kishimoto thought about creating him. Hints where dropped several times, kakashi looking into tobi’s eyes etc. It would make more sense if tobi was obito in the first place. The hair looked like obito, so it was obvious tobi was obito. Obito’s figure was also similar to tobi. In the fight between saru and oro we see obito, rin and kakashi, so it is possible kishi thought of the guy before fans could speculate. It’s because of these hints that fans thought of theories. -_-

  • monkey d goku

    if anything it made it less clear cuz kishi made his scars wrinkles and yea kishi did what alot of people expected i wanted something that was gonna defy all our theories i mean he was to be some great villain for all of shippuden

  • GokuSSG

    All I’m getting is blah blah blah. No offense. Anyways, sasuke isn’t good, burning everything the previous hokages have done to conserve the peace is bad. Trying to bring peace his own way, without the concern for others is bad, the hokage is decided by the village, not by someone’s decision. Considering all obito as done(killing people and all, he does make a good villain, in naruto). Kishimoto showed an uchiha( with great power, comes attached emotions in there case) who lost his parents and “girlfriend” lol and gets manipulated by madara to suit his needs. The only plot hole I see in naruto is how kakashi blows fire through his mask :D . You can stick to your opinion though lol.

  • GokuSSG

    He did for rin, with a little manipulation from madara, a broken promise from his friend, losing his parents, wars going like crazy, his sensei was never there to protect them and his “girlfriend” had a bijuu in her as a setting time bomb to destroy konoha. You know the more I access this, the more I see obito as romantic, since he was pushed of the edge by rin and madara. :D

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Attempted killing is just as bad. If someone *tries* to kill, say the Prime Minister, they are in just about as much sh*t as they would be if they had killed him. In this respect, the only Kage Sasuke didn’t try to kill was the Tsuchikage. He worked along side a terrorist organization and allegedly abducted the little brother of the Raikage.

  • Drewtitan22

    Ya it would be too crazy with that. But you agree with me tho,to go back to my original comment

  • GokuSSG

    1. He got saved by zetsu and unlocking sharingan on a risk of danger is what sasuke did, when he experienced anger towards Itachi. Obito probably did the same thing on a whim lol.
    2. You are saying that’s a plot hole O_o. Madara( the god of shinobi) trained obito for a period of time. Remember the time when sasuke was able to block kurama’s chakra with orochimau’s training. So what’s wrong with obito controlling the kyuubi with madara’s training.
    3. Uchiha’s are always like that. How is that a plot hole? :D . Being branwashed by peace is what changes anyone.
    4. Madara taught obito the jutsu to control the tailed beasts. It’s obvious if you read the chapter. The hand seal explains itself. He is also a direct descendant of madara. So obito may have looked exactly like madara.

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    Face it, ALL of Obito’s power came from Rin.

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    Aside from several fodder ninja in Part I, A few Samurai and White Zetsu’s, that’s about it.

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    Madara looked a fool when his Summoning Justsu failed, but hey, there was a reason for it.

  • Rik Clarke

    This cover gives off a Classic Naruto vibe. And Sakura looks better like that when she doesnt show her forehead.

  • Hikaru Nakamura

    true

  • Shippudencave

    No, the only way someone could have found the arm was if they had access to the Kamui Dimension.

  • monkey d goku

    thats all your getting cuz your in denial its okay if you cant defend it im right and that wasnt his girlfrend and again ill just qoute someone on youtube “kishi has let everyone down obito and tobi seemed like 2 totally diffrent people and that were the disconect comes ” i mean hey if your mad that he sucks then i guess it is bla bla bla hahaha no offense little kid XD

  • monkey d goku

    1. madara said he phased through them and sasuke unlocked his sharingan not his mangekyou ….on a whim okay plot hole cough cough
    2. madara died a couple months after obito was saved and he didnt train him he jus told him his plan
    3. no uchihas arent all like that saskes clan was murdered itachi murdered them and obitos 12 year old friend who was a girl died which totally goes against his character
    4. wait that made no sense at no point did he teach him the seal he jus knew it and hes not a direct descendant of madara…madara is the only one next to hashirama who can be the host not a 25 year old kid
    nagato was a great villain he actually had a tragic back story and him wanting peace was more believable you cant argue that

  • Racim Afy

    Sasuke had the intentions to annihiliate all of the kage’s present in the said room to which they were supposed to have a meeting. As kankurou and temari stated, the first thing that came in mind to sasuke was to infiltrate the private meeting, which implies that, even though he infiltrated, it still represented an impetus to the kage. Nonetheless, he’s viewed as a criminal who’s got no apparent future.

  • whyuhatin

    that sounds stupid thats not his girlfriend she liked kakashi in the anime fact it was never explained that he lost his parents your jus making stuff up now his sensie was always their except for that one time he was helping out his fellow shinobi and to jus destroy this whole thing with fact in the manga when madara first sees him and tries to persuade him obito turns it down to do be with his friends it isnt until HE SEES RIN DIE that he changes not war not his parents not him being a romantic or watever your going on about just admit it hes a bad villain

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    the arm was warped to another area outside of that dimension, any tracker like zetsu could have found it with the right skill. plus deidara knew where to look anyway.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    i read the chapters and watch the canon episodes when i have the time, i know the story.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    Naruto’s hair looked like obitos, so did several other characters due to kishimoto’s art style. Obito’s figure was never a hint. countless characters are built like that in the series, again it is the art style. everyone thought obito was madara, so obito’s existence didn’t come into play then. People came up with the theory because after seeing obito they loved the character so much they refused to believe that he was dead. so wild theories come into play and kishimoto writes the story just as how the fans made it.

  • Gohan7861000

    Kishimoto’s style is what made people think tobi is obito in the first place. It’s proof enough that kishimoto thought of obito ever since the mask appeared. The mask concealed one eye, while the other was his main eye. It is more logical, if tobi was obito then if anyone else was. Naruto’s hair looked nothing like obito’s. For one he had yellow hair, obito had black, being recovered by madara is also another hint, when kishimoto showed him getting buried. Another hint was when obito talked about bee and naruto understanding his pain of having a tailed beast inside someone(rin). The reason that chapter of kakashi’s chronicles was first aired was to give fans a hint of who tobi was. That cliff hanger showing obito being buried is another major hint. People thinking that tobi was madara are more retarded then I thought, madara would look extremely old if he was alive. The zetsu parts that where dripping out of him is also a hint that was dropped lol, looked liked the injuries that obito received as well.

    1)Tobi and Kakashi shared the same ability as well, which dropped hints.
    2) When Tobi was facing Team Kakashi and team Kurenai, He specifically revealed his sharingan to kakashi and addressed him directly.

  • Gohan7861000

    1. He hints it in his own name.

    2. His right eye is the eye that Kakashi didn’t take. If you are also thinking “Well Obito would have died”, that isn’t completely true. Tobi’s eye has the ability to suck up things and he can also retreat into it as well as teleport to other places via it’s use. So he could possibly sucked up the wreckage he was under when his ability was awaken or just teleported to another location while he was buried.

    3. Tobi wants to end war so that must mean he was a victim of war. Now get this, what if what I said didn’t happen instantly? What if Obito was buried alive for a long long time? The amount of psychological damage that would of put on him would be to much for a mind to keep whatever morals he had before and could explain why he feels the way he feels. He survives then finds out that Rin is dead and the massive amounts of beef between the sides of the war he was in never got resolved. That would implore change right?

    4. The time he attacked Minato would not put Obito at a young age. I’ve seen some say that Obito would be to young to attack Minato at that time. That’s not true. If you paid attention to the flash back then you would know Kakashi was very mature around that time and be in his later teenage/young adult years. Obito would be around the same.

    5. Obito is no one. Just a corpse that did nothing significant but die just like every other ninja before him. He had no accomplishments. The only ones that could possibly mourn over his death or know he was are Kakashi, Rin, & Minato. Only one of those three are actually living.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    First off- I know this is REALLY off topic. Okay, not TOO off topic, as I could’ve done it in a Battle of Z thread. I really just picked the latest Naruto related thread.

    Anyway, now for the usual SPOILER ALERT. Spoiler alert yo’!

    Anyway. We’re getting two things packaged in the Full Burst release of Storm 3. Costumes that were already released as DLC and ‘revamped’ cut scenes. I’m not including Kabuto because, well, it doesn’t retain to anything I’m gonna talk about. Anyway. As I just said, Costumes and Cut scenes. What do I think this means? Well…

    New, canon ending. Yep. I’m thinking, in Full Burst, part of the newly done cut-scenes will be a right and proper ending that ends in the right, proper manner. Maybe a new final boss battle will be added. One staring Naruto, Kakashi and Guy. That could be grasping at straws though. That asside though, I really do think one of the ‘revamped’ cut scenes will be the correct ending. As a surprise. CC2 listens to what we ask for the most. And I think more then the Edo Kage- more then all the missing characters- we were let down by the story ending the most. This also means perhaps a cut scene will be added with Madara showing off his Hashi face on his pecs instead of running away like biatch.

    Anyway, coinciding with that, I think we’ll get at least two new costumes (maybe movesets? I can be hopeful xD). Namely, I think a Maskless costume for Tobi and a battle damaged costume for Madara (that shows the face on his chest.)

    That’s it, really. Why do I think they’re doing this? I think it was planned. I think unmasked Obito was always planned to be in it. The model for his head is already there. How do I know? Go play a free battle with War Tobi and at his victory stance you can clearly see through his eye holes he has the wrinkles on the one side of his face. To go along with this, in the cutscene where he leaves the battle field and is partially shroaded by smoke you can see his hair. It’s clear the head model is there, and the face to go with it.

    Why do I think they are adding new cut scenes? Well the trailer came out a while ago. The game came out in March. That would mean it took them 4+ months for one character and a couple revamps? No, no. Kabuto was done when the trailer came out. We could see how fleshed out everything was.

    What they are doing is marketing tactic that is actually really effective (and right to the fans). They’re underselling it. Lowering expectations so that once people get it they’re more impressed then they’d have been otherwise. this is why we found out about Madara once the game was leaked and not from CC2 until after the game launched in America. They’ve done this before too. In the old Ultimate Ninja. Tell me your thoughts! Do you agree? Do you disagree? If so, why?

    lol i bet anko is still asleep in the cave

  • Rick Lee

    wouldn’t really call it a master piece

  • Rick Lee

    Yeah. Obito is literally a pedophile who loves rin and can’t stand the friendzone lol wtf and TO THIS DAY HE HASN’T USED ANY RINNEGAN POWERS STILL “I’m going to test my new eye” MY ASS

  • Rick Lee

    yu yu hakusho didn’t have plotholes

  • GokuSSG

    1. An Uchiha’s power do manifest themselves when they are in emotional trouble. Sasuke unlocked his sharingan in the massacre, but he didnt remember. The same could apply to obito. Lol you in denial or something
    2. No, madara died, but deemed obito a worthy disciple( naruto 605) -_-
    3. Obito got brainwashed by the prospect of a happy world. Where he can live in peace. Seems understandable If you think a little :)
    4. Look at 2 -_-
    “Nagato was a tragic villain”, nagato got brainwashed the same way as obito did. Even if nagato lost his parents, obito experienced the same thing. His only bonds where minato, kakashi and rin. Losing his “girl” seemed to have made him crazy, but he went back to madara thinking that he can bring them back. “Blah blah blah” :)

  • Rick Lee

    shes useless

  • GokuSSG

    Haven’t seen yu Yu hakoshow, so whatever lol

  • GokuSSG

    When he sees Rin he realises madara was right. So he goes back to madara because he thinks madara has the solution -_-. Considering all he has done, he makes a good villain. Albeit his reasons are not that epic, but he’s an uchiha. I can tell he has no parents because he looks at there photo and that’s it. I can assume so much lol

  • GokuSSG

    Kishimoto would explain it in time if he has let some of his fans down. Wow looks like I made the baby cry. It’s okay, if you want I can leave you in your self induced stupidity kid.

  • GokuSSG

    I know she’s not his girl dumbass. It was a joke -_-. I came to the assumption seein that obito smiles at the photo of his parents and that’s it. Obito got manipulated by madara’s speech of recreating a world where everyone his happy. He downright says no, but he sees rin die and believes madara. Right now the annoying 25 year old is going on about pain in the world to naruto. Going on about how minato died, when he caused it. Going on about how his *sensei was never there when he was needed. That’s a villain, even if you think he’s a bad one

  • Gohan7861000

    Well that’s you. -___-

  • Gohan7861000

    Ha maybe lol. I’m amazed at the way you think things out. I’m studying a major in business, but I couldn’t figure that much out. I’d say you are right. I’d actually blame namco for cc2′s fail, they where forced to release it early. So they where unable to make the right adjustments to the game

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    Oh, I absolutely agree. I met the rep from Namco Bandai we see in all the Storm interviews. The bald guy. He knows nothing about the series besides what he needs to know to. I have no problem with him, but… it’s off setting.

    I remember how long Storm 1 and 2 were in development. In that time, we saw little interviews or input from Namco. That’s because before that, CC2′s major thing was .hack// and it made them money, but not nearly as much as Naruto has. So Namco gave them a medium budget and gave them as much time as they want. They didn’t really care. Now, with the Naruto audience, they want to cash in as much as possible- and you can’t really blame them for that- but it ruins CC2′s rep. They know the more games they release, the more they will sell, and CC2 has the license for Naruto games, meaning no competition. So they give them high budget (by Namco Bandai’s standards. You can’t compare that to say, Capcom or Treyarc) and little time. That way the fans are left wanting more with each game and it gives them a reason to buy the next one.

    I’ve never thought badly of CC2. No other CEO will go see fans while dressing up in character. He loves the series.

  • Sasuke_Moongem

    This is bugging me. Is your pick a very sad man, or a dude with an awesome mustache?

  • Gohan7861000

  • jdoops

    I think she is and when I think about it so is captain yamato

  • monkey d goku

    hahahha right

  • Shippudencave

    No, he just thought that looking in the forest below where it happened would be a good idea, you know the place where Naruto ambushed him. Why are you trying so hard to prove that something isn’t planned, *sigh* whatever, I’m done with this.

  • monkey d goku

    1 WHEN SASUKE UNLOCKED IT IT WAS JUS A SHARINGAN YOUR IN DENIAL OBITO UNLOCKED HIS MANGEKYOU RIGHT AFTER UNLOCKING IT AND HIS EYE WAS CRUSHED BY A ROCK PLOT HOLE are you in denial
    2. you didnt even defend 2 so i was right about that he deemed him a worthy successor no he didnt he died
    3, he did it for rin shut down again
    4. alreaady shut you down in 2 so i guess it applies here 2 XD
    rin was not his girl rin was not his girl rin was not his girl listen if you want to be in denial about him being a bad villain thats fine this is the most hate any villain from any series has gotten and theirs a reason NOONE accepts his reasoning its stupid and he sucks as a character u can tell wen i said it i got more upvotes on a naruto update so im not the only one kid

  • monkey d goku

    noooo looks like i made a cry baby hahahahah i dont care i have one piece where the villains actually make since black beard doflamingo need i say more your jus mad your stuck with the show that dropped from 3 to 6 after tobi was revealed so hey i guess all the naruto fans are mad while the tards are in denial cuz their show is perfect XD

  • saiyan_king

    dude im half way through one piece and its soooo goood im in love with that show i can tell already why everyone said one piece was better i watch naruto but i jus had to jump once naruto fell off but i havent regretted it i could care less about all this obito stuff anymore the show has move to number 2 for me im at the part with rayleigh kicking kizarus blast away EPIC

  • monkey d goku

    yea its sooo good i was a narutard before last summer i hated one piece cuz i always hear about it i would say the same thing others said who didnt watch it about its art style and it being chiildish just to justify me not watchin it but then i watched it and im converted lol when i go on youtube in the comments you see people jus like us saying once they watched one piece it became their favorite odas stealing all the fan lol but yea i dont really care about this discussion its already fact that obtio wont go down as a good villain but hey as long as it ain my show XD

    Guys, remember that when Madara was Hashirama’s right arm, he had the same powers of Hashirama! (And it’s obvious that if someone will be hokage, it will be the main character)

  • WENDiGO

    What’s bothering me is how Sakura clearly ignored Naruto for sooooo long that it becomes frustrating. She’s been riding Sasuke for way too long (even through the BS) to just change her feelings out of the blue. If I was Naruto and she just flipped all of a sudden i’d just turn my back on her since she always thought I was inferior to Sasuke (assuming he always saved her) and go to Hinata (since she’s liked him since childhood and that relationship has the most potential).

  • WENDiGO

    Having Kurama’s power isn’t what makes him strong. It’s how he uses it that does. It took even more strength (mentally) to even become friends with him. What is a man with power if he doesn’t even know how to wield it?! Naruto knows.

  • arcnate

    good point lol

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    C’mon, he would die in the series many times if Kurama didn’t save his ass. He’d be dead already in fight with Haku, at the beginning of the series.

    And nothing will change my mind – he didn’t earn this power fair and square, it’s not even his. It’s like steroids, but much more OP.

    “The shinobi system that created all this….the village and the shinobi are what caused me to lose hope.”- tobi. The more I see it, the more I actually understand what this guy is talking about. Even though a little girl made him think like this. In the end, I don’t want a nagato scene(I loved the pein arc), but I don’t want a repetition. Naruto should shove a senin bijuu Dama up this guys a** lol

  • Chōmei

    … Minor characters don’t count! Lol.

  • shanyahaha

    yeah, it just won’t work out for naruto, sakura and sasuke to be reunited and go happily skipping off into the sunset. sasuke’s past actions won’t be forgotten and forgiven so easily, he has to realise that actions have consequences. naruto and sasuke’s relationship will totally be like hashirama and madara’s, its the only possible thing.
