New chapter is out. This chapter features some talking and some brutal actions from the first two hokage. If you haven’t read it yet, you better do it now. From here the real spoilers go.
Plotwise, there are a few interesting spots in this chapter. Firstly, Hashirama is able to break through the Edo Tensei, and only Orochinaru is aware of that. Secondly, Tobirama stated that the last time they were summoned by Orochimaru, they did not have the full power, which explains why Sarutobi was able to defeat them.
Talking about drawing style, for some unknown reason Kishi draw Sasuke’s Magekyo Sharingan in its old form, not as EMS.
Characters’s wise, there is a couple of interesting moments too. First of all, it seems that Hashirama is not only light-hearted, but also is a wise and a kind man. You wouldn’t expect that from a man who was born and grown up in the age of war.
Also I wonder why Hashirama is so fast on making his mind about Itachi’s character. It seems to me that he said what he said about Itachi just to please Sasuke and to win his confidence.
It was interesting to see that small part of the Madara vs Hashirama fight. It is probably the second most anticipated fight in the Naruto series, right after the final Sasuke vs Naruto one.
So, next time we will probably see the legendary fight between Madara and Hashirama. From the look of it, Kuubi did not play a major role in the event, which makes me wonder just how strong Hashirama is. He long passed the human level of strength. Well, we will see. Till the next time (^_^)/
