Naruto – Chapter 497

June 3, 2010

So its been a while since I bothered writing an entry on Naruto since the manga has been terribly dull recently.   However this chapter was just random enough to make me want to post something! 😆

So Killerbee has exhausted himself helping tame the Kyuubi, Naruto is on his own – so what does he do?  Well same thing Naruto always does, charge in head first with little to no plan and start spamming variations on his Rasengan.

You know, once upon a time the Kyuubi was this great demon – the ultimate embodiment of evil in the series.  It was always there looming in the background threatening to swallow Naruto’s humanity and go on a murderous rampage.  Sure it looked like a gigantic orange bunny sometimes, but it was still badass – seeing it reduced to a state where Naruto can do damage to it and play tug-o-war with its chakra, is really quite depressing.

Of course Kyuubi’s chakra is still toxic and can cause terminal emo-ness – so Naruto of course gets the standard flashbacks to his crappy childhood of neglect.  But all is not lost!  Randomly Mummy Uzumaki appears in Naruto’s head!  What the hell?  Minato really screwed up that seal – not only did he seal a bit of his own soul along with the Kyuubi into his newborn son, he also seems to have sealed a bit of his wife’s soul too! 😆  Wonder what kind of pep-talk Kushina will give Naruto?

    thing is naruto is stupidly strong now so its not like back at the beginning when the kyuubi could push him around :/

    His mummy appearing was unexpected though :p

      Still, I’d like it if the Kyuubi still maintained an edge of awesomeness – this is like when Kishi ruined Orochimaru’s character by turning him into a giant while mind-snake all over again!

    “Naruto Dear, remember to always use protection when getting some ‘time alone’ with that emo-‘best friend’ of yours” That’s what Kushina would say

    Also wouldn’t it be awesome if Kushina is somehow related to Kyuubi? Also not good Kishi, I want my god-like, rage against heavens and lord of hell Kyuubi back! XO

      Bit late for Kushina to be giving Naruto ‘The Talk’ isn’t it? 😆

    Okay, now just Dad, Jirayia and Naruto does the Harry Potter thingy with the power of love to fight the darkness ray..Yay.

    I just can’t wait for Kyuubi to become a nice, fluffy Naruto’s friend. I know it kills its formal evil self and all, but seeing that beast being cute, loyal and friendly can be interesting!

      Oh god it is really very Harry Potter! And now I can’t unsee that comparison….thanks 😛

      I could probably cope with a cute, fluffy Kyuubi more than this current cranky furball……of course lord of hellfire version is preferrable

        Oh I forgot to mention, epic Kyuubi pic at the beginning of the post! Nice pick.

        Now that I think about it, seeing that huge, monstrous Fox gives a bad feeling to the current plot in Naruto. I mean just like you said – the symbol of hatred and evulness suddenly is gonna become a cute pet.. Taking the whole series in the consideration that’s a huge disadvantage to ruin it.

          That pic is the kind of Kyuubi I like to see – its gone downhill as a character IMO.

    I found this one so random as well 😛 I think there are some more twists to be expected, such as the remaining half of the kyubi’s chakra that was sealed!
