If there's been one advantage to having Kaguya be a truly "God"-type enemy for Naruto and Sasuke to throw down with, it's anticipating how effin' awesome everything is going to look when it all appears in an installment of Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm

Sure, it's a bit late to expect the Kaguya fight to be rendered in loving detail this September, when Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution hits, but those games will almost certainly continue on while Naruto remains in print. Besides Dragon Ball (and perhaps moreso by now), Naruto is probably the profitable anime license from a game-adaptation perspective. Which, of course, means a lot of cool fights from Cyberconnect2, eventually.

This latest chapter of Bleach should really be a celebration of Tite Kubo's mastery of "badass" moments, and in some ways it is.

The Soul Reapers have rallied, and in unintentional homage to the tokusatsu tropes that shows like Akibaranger readily skewer, enemies that trounced the best of them mere moments before are suddenly forced to pull out their trump cards against people whose power levels really haven't changed that much since last they had a panel.

But hey, that's where we are in the story, and the time for that kind of posturing is nigh.

I've got to hand it to the Sternritter: Though we've barely known any of them for more than a panel or two, they do make quite the powerful impression.

That said, it's high time we spent these last portions of Bleach in the company of badasses we're more familiar with, yes?

And here we are: At the endgame. In the words of an Xbox marketing campaign, it's time for Naruto to finish the fight.

Of course, I've said that about seven times by now, but really, more than ever, it looks like the final battle against this most final of bosses has entered its final phase.
