    Bad joke, watcha gonna do?
    Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?


    Anyway, at who was saying about danzo and madara, Danzo does not have Madara's eye, he has the eye of Itachi's dead best friend.
    They did come for me, and it hurt.

    Who thinks the fourth Mizukage is dead? I'm not sure. With a few of these Root/Foundation Ninja being named, it looks like we have plenty of antagonists again.
    isnt he the jinchuuriki? he seemed young enough to still be alive but i doubt he is


    Isn't the Fourth Mizukage a girl? And I don't think anyone of them are jinchuuriki...


    The Fourth Mizukage is male, I believe. He looks identical to the picture of all the Jinchuuriki Kishimoto revealed some time ago, leading us to believe that they are, in fact, the same person.


    Oh, the FOURTH Mizukage! My bad. Thanks ^_^

    Well I thought we might see Naruto vs Sasuke early, but now i'm not so sure. I mean I could see Naruto coming and helping Sasuke out but I don't think he's that close to the meeting and he probably gave up since the Raikage brushed off his request to forgive Sasuke. Now it looks like Madara's plan is going take effect and Sasuke will have to flee with his only hope siding with Madara.

    It didn't seem like we were leading up to a Naruto/Sasuke clash, but only because they've been distracted with side goals in comparison to each other.

    The way I seen was Naruto and Sasuke were both going to the kage meeting and I figured they would meet up and Naruto would stop Sasuke from killing Danzo, in which they would fight. Obviously things aren't going that way as you stated because they have other things to deal with now. Naruto seems be distant from the meeting and Sasuke is now going to have figure a way out of there with his life in tact. The problem is he doesn't even know hes been set up yet. As of now it's very unlikely that they meet, but still in the realm of possibilities of course.

    Confirmed spoiler

    Tsunade on the spine, Naruto and Sasuke on the cover(confronting one another, Sasuke has lifeless eyes)

    Raikage caught white zetsu by his neck and asks him where Sasuke is.
    Zetsu tells him 'It wouldn't hurt to give you a hint I guess~'
    The second he says this his neck is broken with a loud sound, is he dead?
    Mizukage goes 'Killing is off limits'
    Everyone else is ordered to keep watching Hokage while others break through the wall to go look for Sasuke

    Madara comes to where Naruto's sleeping and asks him if they could talk for a while but is attacked with rasengan in return
    Kakashi and Yamato make appearance and seize Madara
    'I was only interested how you managed to change Nagato's beliefs so I came here to ask' says Madara
    Naruto tells him that it doesn't matter and asks where Sasuke is

    Madara goes 'Fine, let's talk about Sasuke who had fallen into darkness and about this world of shinobi, permeated with hatred and revenge'
    Without any hesitation Sasuke strikes down Samurais standing in his way who'd noticed the abnormality around them
    Suigetsu notices this and goes 'Why did you tell me not to kill, isn't that what you're doing now?'
    Karin senses unusual 'darkness' and 'coldness' coming from Sasuke with her special ability
    And then someone with insane amount of chakra appears

    The chapter ends with Sasuke running into Raikage and his two underlings

    Just found a whole bunch of spoiler pics. They're small, but there's quite a number of them:


    ***SPOILER***


    It certainly looks like Sasuke has gone Darth Vader. That beast behind him in the 11th pic kind of looks like Four-Tailed Naruto...

    I was trying to figure out what that beast behind him is supposed to represent. It's kind of funny that Suigetsu is complaining about how Sasuke is killing now. An interesting change - to say the least.

    I think it's his hatred basically manifesting it's self. I can't believe Madara just went to Naruto for a casual talk. This guy is nuts. As for Sasuke, it's an interesting turn for him to actually kill now. I can't wait to see Sasuke vs The Raikage now.

    Intense chapter, I wonder when Kishi will reveal the mystery of the darkness in Sasuke. I'm looking forward to how the confrontation with Madara continues, and even more-so to the battle between Sasuke and Raikage. This arc certainly is having a bunch of developments and plot twists, more than the Pain's Invasion Arc IMO.

    I still like to believe that Danzo is a good soul who's willing to do bad things. I also like how Jugo might be getting down and dirty a bit this time. I wasn't sure who Sasuke would end up facing, or if this entire meeting would break down into multiple short battles. I'm glad that the Raikage is facing off with Sasuke instead of Danzo. And of course, Yamato's hold on Madara is superfluous at best.

    Well since it is the Raikage fighting i'm thinking we should see more lightning based jutsu. Maybe Sasuke will copy some of them and add on to his arsenal of lightning jutsu. It has been a while since the Sharingan has copied anything, and it's usually with Kakashi a none Uchiha go figure. Yamato should realize who he is dealing with. Madara can whizz out of there anytime he wants.

    Yeah, Madara fought Senju who was alot better at using mokuton then Yamato. He has Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. He can control the Kyubi which is inside Naruto. And his teleportation Jutsu is even better then the 4th's. I know you all know this but I'm just saying Yamato, Kakashi, and Naruto should be shaking in their boots. Not acting like they have the situation under control, because they really really don't.

    Confirmed spoiler

    Sasuke starts to attack on Raikage
    Then Sasuke got blown out by Suiton Jutsu (Water Encampment Wall), then he uses the lightning element jutsu to attack.
    Subordinate one: The information is correct. He has natural affinity on lightning element.
    Subordinate two: He can use fire element jutsu too. Don't forget to use Suiton Jutsu for defense.
    Suigetsu: Oh. Who leak out the information of Sasuke?

    Subordinate two: Have to stop his movement. Raiton Flashlight Jutsu (similiar to Solar Flare in DragonBall)
    Juugo gets hit. Sasuke eats a fist from Raikage.
    Sasuke breaks the genjutsu. Suigetsu blocks the attack from Raikage.
    Suigetsu: If not me, your elbow has already broken.
    Sasuke: Whatever

    Scene changes to the meeting room
    Ao is watching on Danzou. Tsuchikage is waiting and the girl beside him says that she would like to see the guy who kill Deidara.
    Gaara has no response.

    Scene changes back to Sasuke
    Subordinate two: There is another one here. Once I find the guy, I leave it to you.
    Juugo: That guy is chakra sensing type.
    Juugo releases the second level curse seal.

    "Kill him"

    Raikage: Don't get too furious!
    The chapter ends.
    Naruto is not shown up this week

    The chapter has been released.

    At first I thought it would be a single battle between Sasuke and Raikage, but now it looks like it'll be all of Team Hebi vs. all of Team Kumo. I suppose Danzo's motives are just (if they really are what he says they are), but I still agree with Tsuchikage and Gaara that he's going about it the wrong way. Now that Jugo's gone Level 2 Curse Seal, this battle looks like it'll really get interesting.
