Naruto ch. 433

11「-ナルト-」Chapter 433: Sage Technique Failure…!?

Read Online at: ONEMANGA

Summary: Naruto’s sage mode has now run out due to his usage of the fuuton rasen shuriken and while he gets a breather, Shima suggests that she and Fukasaku go on and fuse with Naruto’s body, in order to prolong the sage mode. Fukasaku says that it is impossible, due to the Kyuubi’s chakra conflicting with their own, rejecting them out of his body. He does say that Naruto has figured out a way to overcome this disadvantage and told her that they will be doing that instead. God Realm Pain sees this opening and takes the opportunity to attack Naruto while he recuperates. Before Pain reaches Naruto however, Gamabunta stalls him by attacking him with his sword. Naruto takes the opportunity to take the giant scroll off his back, getting himself ready for the battle.

He proceeds to create space from himself, away from Pain and towards the direction of Fukasaku and Shima. Gamabunta however fails to stall Pain so he instantly catches up to Naruto. Thinking quickly, Naruto lobs the scroll towards Fukasaku and Shima and goes on to take Pain on by himself. Gamabunta is against Naruto fighting Pain in his state but Naruto insists that the giant frogs should leave the area immediately, as they might get caught in the Fuuton Rasen Shuriken.

At the same time, Fukasaku releases the scroll and reverse summons a Naruto bunshin from Myobokuzan, where two bunshins are seen meditating under the toad oil waterfall. After the summon arrives, Naruto releases the bunshin and gains the stored Sage chakra that he placed in it before the battle. Naruto is now back in sage mode and is overwhelming God Realm Pain once more with his Frog Katas. Fukasaku explains to Shima that before they left for Konoha, Naruto had created two kagebunshins and infused them with his sage chakra. They can just summon them at any time and Naruto is able to absorb the chakra stored within them.

Naruto generates another Rasen Shuriken and releases it towards God Realm. A twist occurs however as the rasen shuriken is intercepted and absorbed by Hungry Ghost Realm, who Naruto had taken out previously. Naruto soon realizes that the fallen Pains are being revived back to life by Hell Realm. He also noticed that God Realm hasn’t actually been using his abilities, which he finds to be really odd. Forming a plan, he creates a diversion using smoke bombs and proceeds to attack Hungry Ghost Realm with a rasen shuriken. He tries to absorb it but the rasen shuriken turns out to be Naruto’s henge. He tackles Hungry Ghost Realm down and another rasen shuriken appears directly behind him heading towards God Realm. Just in the nick of time however, Pain’s powers return and he is able to repel the attack with his Shinra Tensei. Amidst the commotion created by the previous attacks, Hell Realm is taken down by the last Naruto bunshin, setting up an epic 1-on-1 with a full powered God Realm Pain next week.

Next Week’s Chapter: 434 [Sage VS God]

My 2-Cents: Another week of Naruto is kicking ass and killing Pains. Last week I was kind of expecting for the worse when Naruto’s sage mode ran out, as I thought that like the Naruto of the past, the good things always never seem to last long. It was good to see that he was able to come up with a plan beforehand, reducing the chances of battle fatigue etc. I thought that after the mode was gone, he would then get royally whooped and have his ass shipped back to Akatsuki. Thankfully that’s not the case and with this chapter, everything is finally set up for an epic Sage Naruto VS God Realm Pain fight.

Personally it’s been a pretty long battle so far, spanning a month already within the 4 chapters. It’s been a while since we had a proper battle for Naruto so some screen shine for him is definitely a welcome change for me. It did take quite a while for the one on one to happen though, I would have preferred for them to square off in this chapter rather than having to wait another week (that might just me being impatient and fussy). 

55Naruto has again showed some maturity I reckon, as he was able to square off with God Realm on equal footing while we was waiting for the Sage Mode to replenish. His taijutsu must have improved due to the Frog Katas, although things might have been different if the Sage mode came a second too late. Pain was getting his sword ready so Naruto might have been impaled if he was too slow. I do feel though that he is still lacking in ninjutsu variety. He still seems spam the rasengans every other panel, as he even used the dual rasengans as a smoke bomb (ingenious but you have to wonder about chakra wastage, although he does have a massive tank to pull from anyways). With his ability to create the ultimate technique Rasen Shuriken, which is said to be the best in terms of chakra recomposition etc., I expected that he would be able to freely use his wind chakra and create openings using it (maybe a gust of wind that acts like God Realm’s Shinra Tensei?). Maybe I’m asking too much of him right now, given how much he has improved currently anyways. I should just leave that sort of development for a bit later.

In classic Naruto fashion however, his flexible and creative way of thinking is still a joy to behold. He literally formulated a great plan right on the spot in order to take out Hell Realm. Pain certainly did not see that coming and Naruto’s use of the bunshins is still as good as ever. If he spams a jutsu, he’s better off doing it in ways such as that. The plan was perfect.

Overall it was a good and solid chapter. Nothing really overwhelming and certainly not as exciting as 431. Either way, seeing more of Naruto’s growth was pleasing and the cliffy at the end points to the next chapter being pretty good. Here’s hoping that they don’t end up just chatting throughout the chapter -_-;

RATINGS:

  • Enjoyment of Chapter: 6.5/10
  • Anticipation for Next Chapter: 7.5/10

    I was rather impressed with Naruto at the end. He may be spamming the same old techniques but at least it was done in a somewhat more creative fashion 😛

    Yea definitely. Pretty awesome uses of the bunshins and I liked the attack as the diversion. Reminds me a lot of Sasuke pre-timeskip lol

    I agree creativity was there even if he was spamming.

    Naruto has always been very creative with his limited palette of jutsus. That’s what’s so great about him 🙂

    I’m just probably still remembering all the horrible rasengan usages in the anime fillers, those are just horrible.
