Thank you Therece for showing everyone this chapter lost in views to the Sasuke chapter. Now I have to read it...geh.
Summary Time: Chapter 75. The Domain of the Gods...sound pretentious who is ready for more Madoc exposition chapters.
The cover page is Moe colored in another of Ikemoto's eye searing color choices.
The chapter starts off with Madoc giving a summary of Hime (with an image that focuses very much on her legs) and Moe. Hime is 16, we now know that she is Sixteen, also her eye doesn't allow her to see backwards in time to before her birth. They also go into explaining Moe power again to remind people it isn't as broken as they initially introduced it, he went to reflecting all attacks to requiring him to touch the person for it to work, and he can punish people for having Killing Intent towards him regardless of distance. Madoc didn't give him these abilities he transferred to them from another bloody Kaguya's clan member named Shibai, who is thankfully dead already. Apparently, Shibai had eaten many of the chakra plant over the millennia and became a god. Oh, the Sleazy Inventor is also there to check if what he is saying possible, which has Madoc miffed at Shikamaru for not trusting him. Oh now we have a new form of jutsu everyone, Shinjutsu. To justify all the kitten powers Ikemoto going to give his character later on. The list so far is Hime's eye & attraction power, Moe's reflect power, the ability to create storms on a whim an example of Shibai's power, Nail/Jenga's shirking power, Punks' claw marks, the powers karma seal in general, as well as anything Kaguya did in Naruto, and I think personally Naruto temporary restorative power he had near the end of his manga. So, Shinjutsu the power of kitten, cop-outs, and asspulls. Apparently, Shinjutsu is the original power that ninjutsu is just trying to imitate. Gotta love when a writer of the sequel decides they are writing the true form or the true story. Shikamaru asked, 'if Corpse God-Shibai is a god, then how is he a corpse that Madoc extracted these abilities from?' Madoc guesses he was either killed or just ascended till he didn't need a physical form anymore. While Shikamaru and Madoc have this back and forth Naruto sit there uselessly. He experimented with these powers to bring his daughter back to life...with Mustard dropping down like that is it hinting that she is a copy of his daughter?
Mustard is here to see Hime because she is still under the affection power, she gets into an argument with Salad. Oh great, the clone is here, she turns Mustard off. Now she is here for any filler arc that have in this villa as well.
So, Madoc explains his experiments to revive his daughter, Akebi, and yes his daughter is Mustard not Hime. Guess they figured the Hime would be too obvious. He succeeded in resurrecting her but she lost her identity, and a nice shot of her legs so Ikemoto can get off while Madoc explains the tragedy. Guess Detla, Mustard's name was fourth clone because he apparently created a few clone trying to see if he could restore his daughter's personality. As Mustard had her memories but didn't act a thing like her, and he considered her not even human in a way. Then, that's when Madoc met Jenga at his lowest point, wait so he was experimenting with Otsutsuki power before meeting him? How? He worked with him as her promised to revive his daughter, Madoc turned against him once learning what the plan was, but during that time he learned a lot about the Karma seal. So, the reason he needed to give Nail a karma seal again was to keep experimenting in order to restore his daughter. The Karma seal Nail has is Madoc's Daughter personality seal. He wants Nail to transfer that data into one of his Mustard clones to revive his daughter. Shikamaru asks Hime to use her powers to confirm what Madoc said, they act like he is being a kitten, but I think he is being stupid because how can he trust her to tell the truth if he doesn't trust Madoc? They had three days to work out an agreement between the two of them, what if part of it was, "if this happens we back each other up?" Oh Great, Femmy here to talk to Bolt now, apparently due to their DNA mixing there thoughts are now mixing meaning they will eventually merge...and since Bolt is the protagonist he will come out on top. He states there is something off about what Madoc said. Apparently, according to Femmy what is off is that Hime's attraction power is not Shinjutsu. Oh Mustard is 24.
Bolt's right eye changed, the one he will eventually have a scar running over it, and he see the future. So this is probably to introduce the kitten eye the anime gave to him in the first arc, though that was something he naturally had, and this implies he got due to his merging with Femmy. Also, Phantom, here is your future eye you were guessing but Bolt has it. Oh right the vision, the villagers as well as Neo-Ino-Shika-Cho are chasing down Nail, Cups catches up to him and uses his sage mode, and Hime notices Bolt had this vision. You know, when Sasuke ran away from the village it was implied, if not outright stated, he was only able to do that because all the elite ninja were being overworked to restore Konoha's prestige. So, they could only send a newly minted chunin Shikamaru with four genin to bring him back. Else, if even only say Kakashi was free, Sasuke would have never escaped. Here, the entire village seems to be looking for Nail.
Oh good are we are finally heading to the end of this part of the story. Hopefully, before chapter 100.
