Naruto Manga 665 Prediction: "The Darkest Shadow!"
Madara has arrived! What will Minato's group do now that the Kyuubi is gone and their arch-nemesis has appeared?
Rikudo Madara: What took you so long Zetsu?
Black Zetsu: Heh, I was being bothered by this troublesome group. But now that you're here . . . This should be a great opportunity to test your new powers, eh, Madara-san?
Minato: This is not good. Zetsu stole the Kyuubi before I could give it to Naruto!
Gaara: Wha --- !!! Then how do we save him? How do we even protect ourselves against these opponents now?!
Kakashi: Gaara! Calm down! We'll think of a plan all right? Just make sure you keep your guard up. Zetsu's ability to leak a part of himself underground will be dangerous! Sakura, do you think you can keep Naruto stable?!
Sakura: Yes, but not for much longer! His condition is slowly deteriorating! [Tears] Even I will be powerless if this continues for too long.
Madara: You all think you can last five seconds against me? Here, I'll show you how far I've ascended above you lowly insects. [At the tip of his spear, a black ball is formed. It launches at Kakashi and Co. who dodge it.]
Minato: What power.
Kakashi: [Eyes Wide]
Gai: Hurry my students, the power of youth must explode --- !!! [Huge Explosion meters away from him]
Tenten: What the hell?!
Rock Lee: Ahh! Gai-sensei!
Gai: [Flies into dirt] Guaah . . . what was that just now?
Tenten: I dunno, but it came from the direction you said Kakashi was at!
Rock Lee: Yosh! Let's hurry then!
Gai: You are right my young handsome beast! Fifth Gate Open!!!
Rock Lee: Fifth Gate Open!!!
Tenten: Ahh! Wait for me you idiots! [Weapons strapped on back]
Juugo: Karin, how much farther?
Karin: We're almost there now!
Suigetsu: Look! In the distance!
Orochimaru: That power . . . Madara is getting serious.
Suigetsu: Yeah, so when do we?!
Orochimaru: Calm, Suigetsu. Let's find Sasuke first. Without him, our plan means nothing.
Juugo: [Glaring at Orochimaru]
Karin: Ah! We're here! [Lands] Sasuke!!!
Suigetsu: [Lands] Where is he? I don't see him? [Looks around]
Orochimaru: [Lands] [Silent]
Juugo: [Lands] I'm watching you Orochimaru.
Suigetsu: [Walking Around] Ugh! Karin, you suck ass! He's not even --- [Trips]
Tobirama: [Evil Glare]
Suigetsu: Woah! It's the old geezer man from earlier?!
Karin: You!!! Where's Sasuke?!
Tobirama: He's gone.
Suigetsu: Yeah! The hell you talking about? You gone senile?
Orochimaru: Enough you too. What happened here?!
Tobirama: [Swallows] I had originally tried to attack Madara but he made quick work of me. Sasuke arrived as well. I think he had some sort of plan. He was stopped too. Madara stabbed him. He began bleeding out. After that, Madara left. Then, he appeared.
Sasuke: *Hack *Hack
Tobirama: Hold on! You can't give out! Shit! I can't move! Sasuke!!!
???: Calm down, Tobi. You're usually so much more reserved than this.
Tobirama: Who the --- who the hell are you?!
???: [Kneels next to Sasuke] [Can't see his face] [Turns around] [Long Red Hair, Mask on his face wearing long robes and prayer beads.]
???: That's not important right now. The main focus is stopping Madara. I would've never guessed he'd come so far. I regret ever helping him in the past. I wonder if that young brat is still alive?
Tobirama: Helping him?! How old are you?!
???: I must go. [Picks up Sasuke]
Tobirama: Oi! Where are you taking him?
???: [Looks down at him] Tell you're summoner to retract this jutsu. One should not mess with life and death, especially concerning the Grim Reaper who is always aware of things. [Begins walking away]
???: [Body Flicker] [Disappears]
Suigetsu: Ehh?! There's another guy?!
Karin: A fox mask?
Juugo: What would he want with Sasuke?
Orochimaru: Red hair . . . knows the previous generation . . . fox mask . . . !!! Damn. We have to go.
Suigetsu: Huh? You know it this is?
Tobirama: You do you have in mind?
Orochimaru: [Flashback panel behind him] Hashirama's wife.
Orochimaru: [Nods] She had a brother, Shinto Uzumaki.
Tobirama: !!! What you think that that fool is still alive?!
Orochimaru: It's not entirely impossible. He was then, the leader of Uzushiogakure. Incredibly powerful and adept in sealing techniques, I wouldn't put it past him to somehow have survived. Afterall, Uzumaki's are famous for their longevity and he, Hashirama, and Madara use to all embark on missions together frequently.
Tobirama: Then what has he been doing all this time, then?!
Orochimaru: I'm not sure. But I'm willing to bet it has something to do with his clan's destruction.
Suigetsu: Eh?! Karin's clan?
Juugo: . . .
Karin: [Sad Look] My clan's . . . destruction?
Orochimaru: And if my theory is true, a man of his magnitude harboring a vendetta against the very village he helped build . . . that's a very dark shadow that will cover the Earth when he decides to make his move!!!
