It's Official, this manga is solely about Powerups
The last 10 chapters have all been about introducing characters and having them do cool poses and new attacks to make the retards and the 10 year olds go WOAahaahAHHHHhHhH
But i'm not impressed, there's no substance or plot anymore. Kishi's just showcasing jutsu and showing off with characters now Minato has KCM, InoShikaCho have a new move, Shino can summon, Kiba can add one more head to his current jutsu (woo), Hinata took up 2 pages with some lame attack we've seen before, The Hokage use the barrier, Minato is given more feats with FTG and now to just top it off everyone can use summonings.
WHY. Why would these abilities only be unveiled now? All at once? You think if they'd used them in the actual bulk of the war itself all those people wouldn't have had to die? Neji could still be here. Kishi's just pulling all these techniques out of his arse because he's forgotten about them all so he thinks in 2-3 chapters he can just throw it all at once. The summonings don't even make much sense to me as I just assumed the reason Naruto stopped using them is because things got too intense since Pain and they'd just end up needlessly dying, so they'll just be fine now? suddenly the Sannin comparisons are suddenly important again? how many years has it been since people gave a sh*t about the Sannin? We're still comparing Sasuke to Orochimaru?
Ugh, whilst it was nice to see Kishi hasn't forgotten about the K11 (except for Sai but hey thats a rant for another time grrr) the manga has gone completely the wrong way about it, in a way that I have no reason to care...at all. This manga isn't about plot or character progression anymore, it's a competition to see whose favourite character gets the most flashy lights and feats. And I do not care about it.
