440 is out! The Great Yondaime + Chibaku Tech Revealed Naruto Manga 439 Review ₪ 440 Predictions
Chapter 440 is out. Click here to read it. Courtesy of One Manga. Enjoy!
Wow, where to begin? So many plot holes were filled with this chapter that my head’s literally about to explode. The predictions were endless, but who would of thought Minato Namikaze would make an appearance? Absolutely nobody. I’m willing to bet that this chapter was so epic that Hinata fans suddenly forgot about Hinata and shifted their focus to the great Yondaime.
Even Nagato’s moon making skills were overshadowed in my opinion. Chibaku what? Before I go on, I hereby announce the exile of the word “tensei” in my reviews. Tensei this, tensei that. Not even Naruto’s techniques sound so redundant. On to the review before I write up a full blown rant about this haha.
Nagato uses his Chibaku tech to launch a black “ball” into the sky. After the chakra infused “ball” became stationary, it immediately started attracting everything in its area. Very similar to a black hole except the matter accumulated was compressed on the outside of the “ball” rather than absorbed into nothingness. This also reminded me of rubber band balls for some odd reason.
Nevertheless, Nagato’s Chibaku mix consisted of trees, soil, rocks, and most likely forest animals. If you look closely at the image above, you can see fresh smoke rising from the kyuubi’s recent laser cannon from the previous chapter.
Nom, nom, nom, on goes the conglomeration of what Nagato compares to a moon the sage of the six paths made long, long ago. Little does he know that moons are really made out of cheese, duh! What a moron, right guys?
Konan continuously warns him about the risk of using the Chibaku blank under his current condition. At this point, I’m guessing his chakra is back to where it was after he used his Super Shinra t_____ that destroyed much of Konoha. Nagato quickly dismisses Konan’s plea and proceeds to capture the fox. I found it funny how the fox said, “Woahhhhhh!,” as it was being sucked in.
Ah yes, so everything is going as planned. The nine-tailed fox has been captured and we can all go home and tell our friends about it…well, not quite. Deep inside the fox’s conscience a helpless Naruto is battling to figure out why he could not answer pain’s question about facing hatred to bring peace to the ninja world.
Folks, who in their right mind would answer that on the spot? Usually, before contestants go to beauty pageants they more or less know the kind of questions judges throw at them…totally absurd. Plus Naruto should already know that Nagato is crazy out of his mind, living in his own little optimistic world.
This is the part where the panels show a lot of gore. 😀 Naruto just can’t find the answers to his questions and it’s killing him deep down because he wants to earn the title of Hokage legitimately. He becomes so confused that he starts to hear out the caged nine-tailed fox. Not a great idea…
The fox proposes that in exchange for his heart, he’ll grant Naruto protection. Then, the weirdest shit happens. Naruto rips off his jacket and Minato’s seal appears on his abdomen. The seal then spins so hard within Naruto’s stomach that a deep hole is formed and blood starts seeping out onto the boiling chakra…eww.
As Yamato rushes to the village, he notices that the 8th tail has been released hence the number 8 appearing on his palm. “Eight!!? Shit!!,” gets me every time 😆 Back on the battlefield, Pain’s chibaku “ball” slowly starts to crumble as he wonders what gives. The Kyuubi’s dreaded 7th and 8th tails are released as the fox easily plunges through the thick mold of rocks.
Like I said before, Nagato seems to be out of tricks so it’ll be interesting to see what he does in the upcoming chapters. I’ll take a little excerpt from my previous reviews to explain the image above: “I’m guessing once he reaches the seventh tail he’ll start to look more like the original nine tails fox and the skeleton over his body will develop skin and whatnot.” Definitely hit the nail on the head for this one.
I was expecting Yamato to let out the f bomb when he saw the 9 appear on his palm, but instead he crapped his pants which is equally as good. Just as Naruto was about to remove the seal and release the nine-tailed demon fox a familiar figure grabbed his arm and thrust him away from the seal.
Who would of thought that the 4th Hokage would be the one to reveal himself to Naruto? Again, nobody. Kishi stun the Narutoverse with this wild juncture. I was so shocked that I deemed it fake until the spoiler from a legit source was released. If you read the Kakashi Gaiden you learn that Minato has a calm and collected demeanor. Very much like his sensei, Kakashi shared the same behavior which made him very likable.
Naruto was just as shocked as we were upon seeing the 4th. The upcoming chapters are sure to cover a lot of plot holes such as what happened on the dreaded day Minato sacrificed himself to the omnipotent death god? What happened to his mother Kushina (Naruto’s mom) and Rin (Minato’s pupil)? And now that Nagato is on the brink of death, the unveiling of his story seems inevitable. How did Yahiko die? When did he start messing around with the chakra receivers? Why is he crippled? The questions are endless.
So some people believe that Minato isn’t quite there and he is an illusion in Naruto’s mind which is totally plausible, I seem to differ. I believe that he isn’t just some illusion because he makes reference to, “seeing how [his] son had grown,” rather than just disappearing or not saying anything after thrusting Naruto away from the seal. Sure his physical body has long been buried, but his soul remains a mystery. The story goes as follows: Soon after the sealing of the nine tails in Naruto’s body the death god consumed Minato’s soul, sentencing him to an eternity of battle in its stomach. (Naruto Wikia) Before I let you go, I pose this question.
It’ll be interesting to see if Naruto suppresses the demon fox and reverts back to his normal unconscious self. If that happens, expect Nagato to take advantage and capture him. Until next time my fellow readers. If your theories differ from what I’ve proposed be sure to post them in the comments section! Tune in for my next post. 😛
On a sidenote, I know my reviews are mediocre and not that great, but I’ll keep writing them till I get it right. Believe it! haha.
