Kono learned rasengan before naruto went with jiraiya for 3 years training. Knowing it is a signature move of naruto and being an avid follower at that, kono must have kicked his butts to learn that move. But of kors, i don't think he can take it to another level.
Kage bunshin kono is likewise cool. It's a skill almost all ninja knows but depending on their chakra, doing it is another issue.
I was hoping naruto could have somehow made it back to konoha to whup up pains a** and give him a double dose of his own menace. With him escaping, i think he can while leaving 4 of pains bodies dead. Anyhow, it was well noted that even without naruto in konoha's almost destruction, kishi have shown us naruto's will, influence, guts and heart rubbing in the shinobis' fighting for konoha and it's will of fire.
Tsunade will not die but will be harassed by danzou to resign. And she'll give her a pacquiao death punch.
Xmas wish... I hope kakashi aint dead. Christmas won't be the same without kakashi in konoha. hehehehehe
Advance merry xmas peeps!
