Mist Nin are scary looking (Um Suigetsu, Kisame!) and the Raikage is no exception
Akatsuki messed with the wrong hidden village, the Raikage is NOT happy at the fact they attacked and kidnapped his brother, the container for the Hachibi.
Kids this is what happens when you abuse frog oil…
Could you keep still if you’re life depended on it? Naruto is about to find out.
So Naruto’s sage training enters its final stage, with him now attempting to feel natural energy without frog oil. To do so he must keep still and we all know how hard that is for Naruto. Luckily, Fukasaku has a method for teaching him to be still, but of course, it’s not very easy…
Back with Akatsuki, the team is recovering; Karin and Suigetsu seem well on their way as they verbally fight with one another. Juugo still looks like a young version of himself and Sasuke, is well Sasuke.
Suigetsu asks the Uchiha if he will really be given the power of the Hachibi. Sasuke says that he has no idea, but that he doesn’t think he’ll need to rely on it anyways. He doesn’t elaborate to Suigetsu but thinks to himself that he has a new power, strong enough to destroy Konoha.
So, I figured going by Sasuke’s thoughts in the chapter before last, that although he said all that crap to Madara, he doesn’t really intend to kill everyone in Konoha. But his line about having a new power to destroy Konoha certainly makes it seem like he meant every word he told Madara last week.
Itachi you sly weasel you?
Then again, he could just be stating that he is powerful enough to destroy Konoha, not that he is intending to use that power to bring it down. Not that I think he’ll be able to anyways.
Not because he’ll have an emotional epiphany but because Itachi lived up to his name and certainly was a sly one. During this chapter when Sasuke thinks of bringing down Konoha his vision gets blurry and it looks like he might be in some pain.
So to me it looks like while Itachi gave Sasuke his eye techniques he also put in a failsafe. So if Sasuke tries to use his gained powers against Konoha they won’t work.
Or it could just be that Sasuke has been abusing the powers of late and we all know that constant use of the Sharingan and its eye techniques can have a debilitating effect on the user.
I’ve also been pondering once again what power Itachi might have given Naruto. As I’ve said since Naruto doesn’t have a Sharingan then I doubt Itachi gave him any of his eye techniques since Naruto would be unable to use them.
So my feeling is that Itachi gave Naruto the ability to cancel out any techniques of Sasuke’s that are related to the Sharingan, or quite possibly gave him the ability to control the Kyuubi just like Sasuke.
With Sasuke, dead set on heading towards Konoha maybe it will be revealed to us soon.
Back to the manga though, Karin senses someone’s Chakra outside. The Raikage really didn’t waste anytime and has ninjas hot on the trail of his brother.
Sasuke and his team take care of one such ninja, but not before the mist, Nin was able to send a summons back with information.
Zetsu and Madara now wait for Pein in order for them to be able to move forward.
Back in mist they are awaiting a report from one nin concerning the enemy’s location, once received they will be sending out four teams to rescue Killerbee, the Raikage’s brother and the carrier of the Hachibi.
The Raikage wonders why Konoha hasn’t taken care of Sasuke and makes an interesting comment about how the Hokage took care of ‘Hyuga’ swiftly enough. That really makes me wonder what that is all about…
Realizing the ninja they were awaiting information was from is now dead or incapacitated. The Raikage orders the team to determine the general location of his brother from the information they had and to search from there.
He tells his subordinate to get word to Konoha that they are going after Sasuke Uchiha and tells her to get “Samui’s team” as well as arranging a summit of the five Kages to discuss Akatsuki
On the final page we get to meet this special team of Mist and they look like a pretty cool bunch ^-^.
