It took me so long to figure out that it was Hinata that repaired his arm and to be honest I don't really care that it wasn't Sakura (even though whats the point of medics if Hyuuga can repair broken bones), but I loved the focus on Lee this chapter, he's always been a great character and it's great to see him being such a badass.

Even though I don't care it wasn't Sakura I seriously want to know where she is, she's not even appearing in group shots anymore.

I get the feeling we're switching back to Sasuke next week and I'm conflicted in how I feel about that, I wish they'd finish the war but I want to know where Sasuke is going, I'm not a big fan of Sasuke but I like Taka and Orochimaru so I'm not sure how to feel.

Just saying people, no one is really panicking on more recent posts. We don't need more "Calm down"s. wink.gif

Dang... this panel.... I just love Naruto and Lee's poses. That's just awesome.

Finally get to a chapter on time...

So, still no Sakura. Very odd that it's Hinata fixing his shoulder, having Sakura do that is a no-brainer. (Then again, it's just popping the joint back in, and you'd think they'd teach that as basic field medicine, so I can accept that.)

I'm okay with this, it seems Kishimoto does indeed have bigger plans for her. It would have been nice if it was this week, though.

As for the rest of the chapter, decent art and it gets the plot moving. Not really too special IMO, and a couple points seem a bit redundant, but the end volley is worth it I guess. (Still not enjoying the fighting imagery this go around. Not as physical or complex as I prefer, but that's how it's been all arc, so I should probably get over it...)

So Hinata filled the potential healing spot for Naruto that should have been Sakura's, while at the same time making her character nonexistent? This is sad. Even though Sakura is the heroine, Hinata is currently acting more like it than Sakura.

Just throwing something out there- do you think Sasuke has arrived at the Hidden Eddy Village (Uzushiogakure)?

Agreed. I got goosebumps.

It's pretty neat actually how Naruto is able to pass on the Kyubi's power to other shinobi, especially as a combination of his mother and father's abilities. Awesome! Does this mean they're all actively using Kurama's power? Isn't this a strain? And could someone instead use this power to pull Kyubi out of Naruto? And Safely?

Le sigh...
Hinata again and not Sakura to knock in Naruto's dislocated shoulder. I mean, Sakura's just a medical ninja that's all. She wouldn't know to do this.

I'm starting to get a little full from being force-fed Hinata.

And again.... Sakura gets the shaft once more....

I don't understand what the hell is going on anymore... Kishi says (or maybe it was just the editors' note) Sakura is the heroine last chapter, but he just keeps shoving Hinata down our throats. I think last chapter may have been a troll as I had expected....

Ok, all done --Click here to view--



:/ I must say, I wonder how Hinata even knew his shoulder was out of place to fix it, and it doesn't seen like her technique is a very safe way to fix a disjointed shoulder. XD

It looks like each character is getting a bit of focus. Lee got his the chapter. I don't like it though, Kishi is still going too slow for my tastes and I'm absolutely hating the threat of switching to Sasuke in the middle of this. shamefulcry0js.gif Please Kishi please, be reasonable.

I didn't exactly expect Sakura to be in this chapter, but I do wonder where she's gone. She must have disappeared in the air with Sai after all because I didn't see him either. But I think an airborne shinobi would have been spotted right? Maybe not, and maybe what they're doing on the ground is a distraction.

I predict Sakura's punch will do a lot of physical damage to the Juubi, it would be best if she's airborne for that so that she can just drop down, bomb style. Given Naruto gave chakra to people off screen, he has probably already given Sakura some, especially since Kakashi has some now and she was nearby him not too long ago.

Hm, question is, who is going to get their spotlight next and will Kishi waste having 1 chapter on 1 characters spotlight. We'll be here for another 8 weeks or so if thats the case right?

PLEASE DON'T SWITCH TO SASUKE!

Okay seriously --Click here to view--
I am REALLY getting tired of Hinata. Especially with her taking over SAKURA'S job. FFS Kishi! Where is Sakura?! And why the F*** is Hinata doing SAKURA'S JOB?? I'm friggin hacked off again. Kishi...if Sakura is the heroine like you SAY she is, then why is HINATA doing SAKURA'S job?!

That could be cool, personally I was thinking it was the Uchiha compound. Guess we find out soon

Its aggravating that Kishi is using up Sakura's chances to be useful here. Instead Hinata fixes Naruto's shoulder. Is she his support now or something? -___-

I'm not usually completely annoyed and just about pissed at Kishi because it's all for fandoms but this is about one step too far. You can't cross the line of having Hinata heal Naruto's shoulder? Are you serious?

Major cop out right there Kishimoto

Sai's not important though. And ignoring Sakura is getting pretty damn annoying. "Something big in store for Sakura" is just not cutting it anymore for me. Sorry.

Hm, interesting --Click here to view--
It seems like the final process of the battle is now on the way. The reason why I put interesting in the title is that the title is following the Bleach pattern. It's titled "Whirling and Enduring 2," so that means we are getting close to the end of this arc. I hope we don't go back to Sasuke just yet. I think we will resolve this fight once and for all and then shift completely focus on Sasuke. I'm not sure if I see it right, but it would seem that many of them will be fighting at the top of the beast. If that's the case, that means are we going back to the old plan with using two different strategies but now with extra power? That seems logical to me. Well, we are definitely getting close to the finale of the battle. So, I guess Lee has the shine. Sweet. I always like him and glad he got some payback on them. Now that they are at the top, what exactly is next? Or perhaps who's next.

Ok guys...I think we need to calm down a little

I know we're naturally annoyed that Sakura is nowhere to be seen, and it feels even longer on a week to week basis. (I am too!)

But...with the cover Kishi drew last week, I doubt he just forgot Sakura.

Let's not feel so overly threatened by Hinata's presence. It's not like she was the focus of this chapter or had the most epic moment. And as to his dislocated shoulder, Hinata and Neji were right in front of him at that time so she must heard it. I would rather Sakura, but it's popping a limb back into the joint properly, not advanced, proper healing so I can accept that.

Let's bear in mind that the focus was obviously on Lee in this chapter, and the trend Kishi has shown is to have the Rookies whose 'focus' it was previously be clearly seen helping too in an accumulative kind of snowball. I mean, Shikamaru had about the same panel time with Hinata, and Hinata didn't say anything major. Kishi's showing how everyone is helping Naruto. I mean, yes, Hinata was there, but it wasn't any more of those dramatic, focus-of-the-chapter moments like in 615.

I do think Sakura is either a) with Sai somewhere, already having received Kyuubi chakra, just out of sight to give the reader and Madara the element of surprise or b) somehow summoned? called away by Tsunade to help with the Kages.

Just my two cents! smile.gif

HERE WE GO AGAIN! hm.png People, it's really nothing to worry about.... Make sure to read the chapter twice. Twice!

I did like that chapter somewhat but there's was this "something" that didn't make it feel right....

EDIT: Wow, that was such a packed chapter. Is it just me, or did anyone else find the transisotion of the last chapters situation to this a little....awkward? I feel as though things are being rushed and dragged out at the sane time. Oh well.

I'm starting to get a little bored with this arc, to tell you the truth. It's getting a tad bit repetitive to me...

So glad Sasuke is back though! I wonder where he is....
