We're at 70 and were still on this build up. Was the John Depp trail going on when the last chapter released? Ah, April 12th so yes.
Summary Time: Chapter 70 From the bottom of my heart...can this just get to killing Naruto already to speed this along already.
The cover page is Madoc sitting in a chair.
The chapter continues where the last left off, with Hime considering Shikamaru's proposal. She also show him her clairvoyant eye, the Senrigan, in her left eye. Naruto is trying to get in but the door is locked...or he just forgot the code to open the door. Shikamaru contacts Naruto saying to stay outside while he tries selling Nail to Hime. Bolt and Sasuke arrive as well. Madoc tells Shikamaru more about Hime power; it can see anything, even the past, it has few limitations of what it can't see...she is apparently very good at reading lips then, but clearly since he is being so open now; it doesn't work on telepathy.
Now, to Nail and the Clone. The clone is trying to justify trying to forgive him. Nail hates both that Madoc stuck karma on him without him knowing, and he realize that he needs it. The Clone points out that Madoc did it for his own mysterious reason...that hopefully he will reveal in full because he now on Ino's telepathic call. Really seems like they are trying for a CloneXNail ship.
Punk is upping the torture of Madoc to release the limiters. Hime decides to lie to make the Punk to have him retreat so she can weigh Shikamaru's proposition...oh. Wait. No, Nail really is coming. Also, in the mental conversation Shikamaru and Madoc have; Madoc acknowledges the danger Nail represents. That Shikamaru's concerns are justified since Nail could turn out to be a danger. Especially, since now Naruto is too weak to be a check on him once he lost Kurama. However, he needs him alive and with the Karma seal for his own reasons.
....Ok the page just refreshed and the chapter just became out of order mess to what I just wrote down.
... Madoc explains more of Hime's powers and her weakness being blood relatives and Kaguya's clan members. Punk does the smart thing and just takes Madoc with him to get the release code, then kill him. Shikamaru holds Punk down with shadow bind while contacting Ino to know where Kawaki is. Hime decides to order Mustard to attack Shikamaru to break the jutsu so they can leave.
Oh joy, now we get more of the annoying brat Moe. Madoc begs for his life and releases the limiter, "There's no dress Code," a pun on Punk's actual name; Code. He has pupils in his eyes now...that's it. I think it was suppose to be impressive...but Ikemoto's art. Now, he goes for the kill.
