Annotated Manga: Naruto 688

Though we did just bid goodbye to the fifth wheel in Team 7's Reunion of Destiny, we were still left with a lingering question: Without the former final boss, how would the leads stand up to a risen deity?  More particul...

Annotated Manga: Naruto chapter 683

It's time now for a bit more Naruto, and to be honest, there's not all that much to say about the latest chapter despite the copious amounts of talking they do. And without a truly striking image to latch onto, the last week in Naruto ends up as yet more place-setting for the next set of steps in the fight, as well as another potentially infuriating hint-drop.

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.

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.
