Changes all around. What does the future hold? Naruto chapter 451
Okay, so this week's chapter is full of change for everybody. We get re-reacquainted with some old friends and there's a lot of shock going around the now-being-rebuilt village of Konohagakure.
Okay, so as you see in the picture above, giant wooden buildings are appearing out of thin air. Or are they? Of course not. These brand new buildings brought to you by none other than our friendly Yamato. People freak out (in a good way) and they start cheering. Then one smart little ninja says, "At this rate, the village will be rebuilt in no time!" Obviously, he didn't take a good look at Yamato. Look for yourself.
Meanwhile, Naruto and Sakura meet up with a couple of old friends. And when I say old, I mean old. Remember the Land of Wave arc? I know one of you do. (*cough cough* Kwaku a.k.a. Zabuza *cough cough*) Anyway, little Inari grew up and old Tazuna got even older. ^_^
However, its not all happy go-lucky times because Inari and Tazuna just happen to bring up that topic that's been a sore spot for Konoa for about three years. Yes, I'm talking Sasuke. Of course they wouldn't know that he left the village three years ago, but they did hear of Konoha's distruction and managed to get there the next day. It's weird how news spreads in the ninja world, ne?
Anyway, after an awkward attempt at an answer, Naruto comes up with this:
After Inari and Tazuna go back to work after catching up and we get a glimpse at how much more Naruto has matured in all the time since he first became a genin. Everyone who's up to date with the show and who has watched the first part know of the enormous fight between Naruto and Sasuke at the Valley of the End. Sasuke tells Naruto that he didn't understand anything. That he didn't know what it felt like to have those you love the most, your family members, taken from you because he's never had that bond. Well, Naruto has now. After his fair share of loss (mainly the untimely death of Jiraiya by the hand(s) of Pein) and possibly hearing Nagato's sob story, he gets it. Or at least he thinks he does.
you read it right to left. This way <-------------------- <-------------------------------- <------------------------
Sakura and Kakashi look at him in a worried way, but Naruto shakes off the depression by returning to his usual bright self. After declairing that he wants to fight Sasuke for real this time, his reasoning is as simple as:
On the other side of the village, (maybe) the cloud-nin arrive in Konoha wondering what happened to the village. They were told it was the attack by the Akatsuki. The reason they're there is because they've got business.
Unfortunately, they were greeted by an unconscious Tsunade. That's not the worst of it though, because then Danzo rears his bandaged head and Konoha's worst nightmare comes true.
So it's official. Danzo is now the 6th Hokage (*sobs) and he has not only his ROOT ANBU, but the regular ANBU at his command. Not to mention every ninja in Konoha. This can not end well...
Apparently, Kakashi wasn't aware of his nomination to become Hokage because he, along with everyone else, looked pretty surprised when Kiba comes along bearing news of Tsunade's booting and news of a new mission.
So that was pretty much what happened. Tsunade is no longer Hokage, Sasuke is now officially a missing-nin and is to be hunted down and I predict much arguing and yelling in next week's chapter.
Speaking of which, where is our duck-butt headed rougue-nin now? Take a look for yourself.
So what happens now? It may be that time you've all been waiting for, the epic battle between Naruto and Sasuke. Let's make this post better than last week's. Leave your own predictions below. Comments are much appreciated.
Until next week. Ja nee. ^\\
