Re: 452 the real 1 >.<
I don't understand Danzou's thought process. He has single-handedly or co-opertively created two of the most powerful ninja in the Narutoverse that want to destroy Konoha: Nagato and Sasuke, (Naruto wants to destroy Danzou). Does he really think ANBU can stand a chance against Sasuke? There is no one around except for Naruto, and Naruto will go to every length not to hurt him, putting him at an immediate disadvantage like the last time they fought. The rest will get owned quickly or occupied with Sasuke's teammates.
I don't get the whole tongue sealing method. They seal everything Sai and the rest can say about ROOT, but they are allowed to talk about the sealing process? That seems like a major flaw. At least with the Hyuuga it's going to change, hopefully. Given this, I can't wait until Danzou goes down and hopefully the seal breaks. I expect this, and we'll finally learn about ROOT. Also, after this, I figure Sasuke will have over-used MS and get close to blindness or a major degradation.
Sasuke, Naruto S-rank
Danzou Hokage/A rank? I'm unsure since he's injured, but how functional?
