Boruto tomorrow. So, like I said before there were five side chapters able to be fit in-between the gap in the monthly chapters, three for this manga.
Summary Time: Chapter 3. Are we going to see Sakura or focus on the Male Karin and his Dino this chapter?
No cover page. Chapter starts off with Sasuke's realizing Zanzul has glass eyes...which he learned last chapter. Another problem of this manga pacing. While it might sound good to continue almost directly from where the last chapter left off. This manga isn't doing that but instead going back a bit then continuing. It might be fine for this online bi-weekly phase to remind people where they left off, but it probably jarring in a volume. Its better to have a logical break point in-between chapters. He again warns Sasuke he will be watched.
Sasuke gets beaten up by a guard because he doesn't like the look he was given him. His cellmates are worried about him. They guess he got on the director's bad side then joke it is because, he is prettier than Zanzul. That cellmate from last chapter notice Sasuke is gone and ask a guard for the pass to the nurse's office in order to search for him. Sasuke stole that guards pass. Sasuke to show he is a good guy find someone a prisoner locked in a locker. He couldn't leave with out a pass or the dino will hunt him. Sasuke gives him the pass he stole. Sasuke fights the Dino again. Sasuke realize he being disoriented because the raptor's claws are coated with some toxin. And, here is Sakura. She plays guess who with him. She looks like what you would expect when some is actually trying to emulating/copying Kishimoto's art-style. Sasuke faints and wakes up in the nurse's office. Sasuke ask about Salad, and Sakura says she is staying with Iruka...didn't know they were that close. Sakura is here to inform him of a change in the mission...there was a mission? I thought it as Sasuke running off to do this on his own again? Shikamaru sent her a hawk -she was already heading over here (why?)- Kakashi found a book in the capital that goes into detail about the illness The Six Path Sage once had...wouldn't be better if Tsunade had found it instead?
...Ok. The Sage once meet a Astronomer of Tatar. One day a meteor almost hit the Ninja World. The sage cut it in two, when it was cut a bright light cured the Sage of his illness, and he was cured due to the ULTRA PARTICLES in the meteor. And then a bunch of riddles to answer where the Sage put the particles.
Naruto's illness is due to malfunctions in his chakra channels due to be a container. Thought him being that since he was born and also his mother was the pervious container would mitigate it. Also, this has never happened to any other container before? What did they not care or did they not last this long? Pretty sure Killer Bee is older, Roshi of the four-tail, and there was the old monk that once contained the one-tail.
Sasuke asked why Sakura came on her own instead of sending a hawk. She said she did, but it never reached him. and she assumes it was because of the Raptor. So they have a new hawk with a pass, which is a cloth. Sasuke tells her to go back to the village. She refuses. Jiji the prisoner comes in and flirts with her. When she turns around he tries to grab her hair (he is a prisoner that hasn't seen a woman in a while but her guess what might have happened) Sasuke intervenes. The reveal to Jiji they are married...Why? After leaving Jiji and Sasuke talk about women, Sasuke being married, and Jiji has a fiancé in the capital. They talk about the ring again. He ask about a map that suppose to show where the sage hid the particles. Jiji says one of there cellmates is a library attendant, who is a gambler, so he might know. Sasuke informs Sakura.
4/10. Art's fine. Sakura being here still feels like it has not been explained, just given excuses. Naruto's disease sounds like an excuse for the plot. Ultra Particles sounds stupid. No clue, why they had to explain that they are married to prisoner, are they relying on the guy code? The starting on the scene the last chapter had needs to be worked on.
