Summary Time. This chapter title is Kawaki, So they should be introducing his personality in this chapter...or at least his name.
The title page just has him in color, his symbol look like the top of the uchiha fan, so those stupid theories that he is SNS's son are possible, with "A Lone Boy" written twice in two tones. Well the anime did change its time slot so for once their is a reason for them to bring up the anime and at least they don't over hype it. Then again the happened at the start of the month.
So the chapter starts off with two of the Kara bosses without their masks sitting down and eating dinner, with wine. Apparently this is them mobilizing. The female named Delta asked her Boss Jigen if the egg he is eating it tasty. They have some idle chat while she question him about barbarian hair, they talk about the vessel who is clearly Nail, he deflect her questions, so she destroys the dinning table, and then we see the bosses' power when he makes a copy of the table she just destroyed wine and all. The female wants to join the mission to retrieve Nail, the Boss says it Barbarian hairs job, but if she fails she can kill him and take over the mission herself. Then we get a close up of his chin which has the same tattoo that Nail has one his left hand.
I'll say again when the artist is drawing the characters he created their fine, but they are always off when he tries to draw characters Kishimoto created. The women is pretty with a bob with curls, while the Boss look like a monk with his shaved sides of the head and a long ponytail.
Back to the main cast they investigate the unconscious Nail when Bolt and Nail are close their tattoos throb. Oh we get a flashback to how Kara got a hold of him. His drunk father, who thinks he is worthless except as his punching bag, sold him to the boss of Kara who...ugh. Tells Nail that he is his father. Then reaches out to him. This triggers Nail into using some sort of attack to make sure people can't touch him. He then ask if they are from Kara. The two Kara members are watching this, and the women brought along one of their agents. Who I am guessing she brought along to attack the group so it will force Nail to join them and go to Konoha. Konohamaru tries talking with him, he rebuffs, and then Bolt shows him his tattoo which in case people forgotten it is actually called Karma (don't like using that name so I'll stick with tattoo.) This convinces Nail that he is from Kara but before anything can happen you guessed it the agent attacks. The agent has a big mouth and reveals a lot of information to the group. If he is proof of what those "outers," are suppose to look like then they are all ninja cyborgs it seems. Not sure their worth as spies then.
Nail can turn his limbs into weapons like Jugo did. He is apparently weaker then he normally is according to the agent.
Well, if the battle had happened in this chapter it would feel like an actual monthly manga. Instead, yet again, this feels like a Naruto chapter that was just expanded to fit more pages.
