Kishi made a very good desision with... + conclusions/predictions after chap618
The return from Orochimaru!
Face it, this sick pedobear has made this manga VERY interesting again. He is the real thing. Props to Kishi to let him return, clever choice!
After reading chapter 618: Conclusions:
1. I know Konoha's strongest ninja's are all at the battlefield, but isn't it very strange Sasuke can walk in Konoha without ANY problems. I would have liked to see some ANBU attacking team Taka + Oro. It would have been more believable, but this is just a detail I guess.
2. Sasuke getting emotional when returning to Konoha. That panel were he is on the top and looking over Konoha was as Naruto did at the beginning of part 2 when he returned after his training with Jiraiya. Also Obito did before attacking Konoha. Very well drawned by Kishi, also nice symbolyzed that Naruto was standing above Konoha in the LIGHT and Sasuke in the DARK. I liked that.
3. The reveal of the four hokages. Seriously, I had massive goosebumps when I saw that. Epic, epic and again, epic! The mods will be very busy the next months because the fandomes of each of these Hokages will flame each other so hard, lol.
4. Orochimaru, what is your plan now? I mean, with the 4 hokages in your power now, you can rape Sasuke whenever you want and destroy Konoha completely. But this is not his motivation anymore it seems... Strange if you ask me, but also very interesting.
After reading chapter 618: Predictions:
1. There will be some emotional stuff, I hope Kishi handle this well -> Minato will tell Sasuke about how he is Naruto's father and the 'savior' stuff. Hiruzen will be faced again with his past student, Orochimaru. Hashirama will be in shock when he knows that Madara is back again. And Tobirama has to explain many things because he was the Hokage during the Uchiha-massacre.
2. All the 4 Hokages, especially Hiruzen and Minato, will be in shock when they sense the huge chakra and then will be told it is Naruto's. They will be like 'kid got hella strong', lol.
3. Sasuke will, after the answers, definitely face Madara and Obito.
4. Naruto wants to become Hokage, he will get the approval from all the 4 Edo-Kages and he will surpass them! You will see. It will be cheesy, but it will also be very nice and emotional. I am also waiting for more Naruto-Minato talk. Both characters are amazing so...
Your thoughts on it?
