Re: Naruto Manga 482 Discussion and 483 Predictions
I have to say that this was a frickin awesome chapter. It gave me SO much to think about! It's definitely looking like we are headed to a full fledged Team 7 Reunion! Which hasn't happened in a very long time.
There was so much to like about this chapter. Sasuke's almost blindness is confirmed, Lee, Sai and Kiba get their asses handed to them by a dirty trick from Sakura (which, though disappointing, was really funny - I mean, just look at their facial expressions! I laughed so hard), Naruto uses his many years of pranking experience to pull one over on Yamato (also hilarious...I can't believe Yamato fell for it. You'd think he'd know Naruto better by now!). Actually, that's kinda impressive considering Yamato is ANBU. Naruto really is the pupil of one of the Sannin. So much to enjoy.
Sakura is really stupid though. If she really means what she says...it's going to break poor Naruto's heart. Not only one, but both of his teammates betraying Konoha, when comrades and his village are so important to him? Such a tragedy. I hope she comes to her senses. Or Sasuke tries to kill her and she gets forced back into her senses. I like her better when she's moaning about being useless.
Also...was any one else confused by the fact that Karin's flashback seemed to take place during the chunin exams? Karin was at the chunin exams and Sasuke saved her? When was Sasuke away from Naruto and Sakura? If he was it was only really briefly, and he met Karin then? Mind-boggling! I never would have guessed. Oh well, she obviously didn't make it past the Forest of Death...I kinda want to go back and reread that arc to see if she's in the background anywhere! I am glad to see that she is alive for a little longer - Sasuke's "see ya" is telling tho, I think he was prepared to kill her when Sakura showed up. I thought for sure she had been absorbed by Danzo's final jutsu last chapter.
Next chapter...Sasuke and Sakura keep talking, Karin is either killed by Sasuke, healed by Sakura, or left to watch whatever happens and die slowly...Kakashi finds the boys (Kiba, Sai and Lee) passed out and makes fun of them...well probably not, but I would laugh if he did. Yamato realizes Naruto has given him the slip, and goes after him and meanwhile Naruto catches up to Kakashi. And at the end, all of Team 7 is reunited!! Let the games begin :D
