I think so far my favorite manga arc has to be the recent Shikamaru and Team 10 vs. Hiden and Kakuzu. It was awesome how just continually owns Hiden.
The recent arc has been a little disappointing because of how easy Orochimaru went down.
Orochimaru was half-dead though. Sasuke was only able to kill him because his body was failing.
And Naruto's new jutsu thing sucks.
Maybe, but Orochimaru shouldn't be a character people like, he's a slimy bastich, people should hate him.
I think the one thing we can agree on is that Sasuke isn't evil, just misguided, even if he's that.
Still, he needs to put in his place again by his brother.
He still lacks control, but I wouldn't say he was weak. Naruto has hardly won his fights out of power though, he tends to win out of trickery.
But he has a boatload of chakra, he simply puts it all into one or two jutsus
Yea, but doesn't his fox state completely restore him? And didn't his training with Pervy Sage give him more control with his fox states?
Except, as Perverted frog man (who's name I keep forgetting) said, every time he uses the demon chakra, it drains away his lifespan, rendering his 3 years of training useless.
Wow, I never thought I'd discuss Naruto this in depth. It's basically just a passing hobby of mine. I don't have a problem, I swear!
When did he say that? I thought that Orichimaru's seal that he put on Naruto was doing that, and when Pervy Frog Dude (Jiraya?) removed it, it took away that drawback.
I do remember him saying the seals on Naruto would prevent him from dying if he used the Fox's chakra. He said that during the training before the final Chunin Exam.
Unless I read wrong.
No, I'm talking about arc 2 of the manga. Jiraya(?) was talking to Tsunade and he said that every time Naruto used the demon Chakra, it drained away his lifespan, even if it healed immediate injuries. I can't remember what chapter it was in, but I'll try to find it.
