That he was able to overcome his personal anger for the sake of stopping the cycle of violence is what turned Pain around to believeing in Naruto. And ever since then he's just been building on on all these things.

    It'd be a bit repetitive is what I'm saying.
    Wouldn't disagree with you.

    Madara and the absolutely insane scale are what is saving this particular stretch for me. As Obito isn't all that dissimilar from Pain as an antagonist at this point. Which in and of itself fits, because he tried to be to Pain what Madara currently is to him. So it makes sense that he would revert to his less authoritative mindset.

    His own girl form is probably the dumbest blonde in the series, outside of a fight.

    Though really, we all know that he's in love with Sasuke.

    I'm actually finding the ridiculous scale a bit detrimental to my interest. I get what Kishimoto is going for, odds that actually seem completely impossible so that the inevitable victory for the heroes is that much more incredible. But it's just not working for me. I'm just seeing a big explosion followed by a bigger explosion followed by an even bigger explosion and so on and so forth and my interest wanes with each size-increase of the explosions.

    Chapters like this last one, with some great emotional impact, saves it all a bit for me. But scale-wise my interest peaks at around the kage vs. Madara battle (which had a great variety in terms of giant "special effects") or the Naruto, Kakashi, Killer Bee and Gai vs. Obito fight (which had excellent close combat with detailed coreography).

    I get why most people really like the current action. It just isn't really working for me.

    I just wish that Madara was bit more... you know... into it?

    I mean, it's really hard to root against someone who seems like he doesn't actually care about it all that much.

    I'd like if either he or Obito were more sort of...



    ...Yeah...

    That'd be fun.

    Itachi is the best hero and villain.

    Also the worst of both.

    I meant it figuratively ie her behavior and not literally. Dumb pink haired girl doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Hell, He was barely trying. I so have to look animated gifs for this now.

    Exactly! Madara needs to be more like Ceasar Clown or Raul Julia's M. Bison, and have FUN with being a megalomaniac with genocidal intentions. He's so boring to read about, because he's treating it like he's doing a 9-to-5 office job, and NOT like he's a would-be world conqueror.

    If our villain's not going to enjoy being committing his evil, why should we enjoy reading about him doing it?

    ...Madara's like the evil version of the guy in Onepunch Man.

    So damn strong, treats all kinds of threats like it's a chore now.

    I don't know, I kinda like Madara because he just doesn't seem to care. Look at most other Naruto villains; Orochimaru, Pein, Obito, Danzo, and even Kisame and Deidara. Look at the heroes too. Most if not all of these people do care about something. They take their jobs so seriously it sometimes kills them.

    And then you have Madara, who just doesn't seem to care about anything other than himself. It appears that he didn't even care about his clan or brother, and he's treating the whole process of taking over the world like a normal person would about taking out the trash. If anything, it makes me hate even more, because he's coming in at the last minute, just expecting things to go his way. Most anime villains are so melodramatic, that seeing Madara so cool and collected-for now-is just so, I don't know, not what I expected. I don't think I've ever hated a fictional character so much.

And *if* the NaruSaku ship does sink, Kishimoto better get crackin' with some long overdue interaction that doesn't involve dramatic, near-death experiences so it doesn't seem like Hinata is Naruto's rebound girl. Just because she saves his life does NOT obligate him to return her feelings.
    my thoughts: while i am a narusaku shipper, i wont say if it works or not right now. i still dont by naruhina because there is just not enough there for me to buy it as a possibility. sure she saved his life and confessed to him but naruto really hasnt spoken about it in any sort of depth.

    ...k. How does that fight happen?

    Actually, just tell me if the filler is good or not.

    In Storm 3 news there's now a video with Butterfly Chouji in action.

    Choji is seriously the only character in fiction who can make a butterfly a manly and fierce symbol.
