Ahh if only it were that easy…
Sakura comes to the rescue of villagers running from one of Pein’s summons, she takes out the huge centipede with one punch and starts to heal some injured villagers.
Ahh Sakura-chan I’m so glad you grew up.
GO SAKURA!! I totally love it when we get to see her be badass, it never happens often enough for my liking. She meets up with Iruka who tells her to get to the hospital since its starting to fill up.
One of the frogs offers to go get Naruto, but Homura and Koharu tell him to leave Naruto where he is.
Going off of information provided by Danzou they are aware that it is Pein who is attacking the village. They deem it too dangerous for Naruto to return since he is a child and Pein was able to defeat Jiraiya and they cannot allow Naruto to fall into Akatsuki hands.
Tsunade finally gets to do something satisfying that doesn’t involve drinking copious amounts of sake.
Tsunade loses her temper and grabs both of them as memories of Naruto and Jiraiya flash before her. She gives a rousing speech about how they can’t treat Naruto as a child forever. She tells them he is one of the ninjas protecting the village and one day he will surpass Jiraiya.
This either means the future is bright, or really, really GLOOMY!
Glaring at them she says that Jiraiya, Sarutobi and Chiyo all had faith, which they are sorely lacking in.
She tells them that they must have faith in the youth of Konoha just as her grandfather the first Hokage put his faith in them and entrusted them with the safety of the village.
Koharu tells Tsunade to do what she likes and then she and Homura take their leave just as Shizune arrives.
Gratuitous Kakashi-sensei image.
Seriously the man is just cool.
Kakashi’s fight against Pein continues, Kakashi throws another attack Pein’s way only to find it repelled. Apparently both physical and ninja techniques do not work on Pein. As Kakashi tries to figure out a solution to his predicament, another one of Pein’s body’s shows up.
Shizune shows Tsunade the receiver she discovered during the autopsy, she feels that once they talk to the interrogation squad, they can solve the puzzle of Pein’s power.
Tsunade tells the frog to inform Fukasaku about everything they had just discussed. She tells Shizune to tell the interrogators everything has learned while she heads off to help with the wounded.
Danzo, he’s like that creepy relative everyone tells you to avoid.
The frog prepares to leave to relay his message and bring Naruto back to the village, but he is killed by Danzo before he can leave!
So it seems that Danzo maybe wants the village to be destroyed…
Because Maggeh wished for it
