#275 Saving Old Obito

Put both Naruto and Bleach in one post this week. Not much happens in both, so enjoy!

Naruto chapter 636 : The Current Obito [read here]

Here we go again with a freshly created backstory for someone’s last battle. Last time this happened, it was for Itachi and the backstory was for hunting. Honestly, this doesn’t do the ticket for me since this stuff is new and I really don’t have the emotional connection with it. The author throws in too many of these things like he meant to put them in before and decides to put them in where it’s sort of too late.

The good story with this flash back + end battle is Kakashi’s monologue. Ending with:

Naruto 636I’ve been playing with this phrase in my head to figure out exactly what it means… My conclusion is that Kakashi is protecting an idea rather than a person. The old Obito’s personality and will is what he wants to protect. Those two things he has adopted into his own personality and will and passed them onto his student, Naruto. The current Obito is against all that so to protect his will and Naruto’s will, he must defeat the current Obito. All of this you probably figured out, but it took me a while. Let me express my own thoughts.

Okay, so Kakashi and Obito severely wounded each other and Obito fled the scene. Can Kakashi get back on his own? Who knows.

Then half his body starts turning black. It’s the good part too! Remember his right side of the body was rebuilt by that Hashirama tree?

Naruto 636 1And there’s a circle around his eye like his old mask…. Wait. Doesn’t this kind of look like Black Zetsu?

Does this explain how Black Zetsus are made? Is this why there’s only 1 Black while there’s an army of White?

Actually, this doesn’t explain sh*t. Let’s just wait until next chapter.

Bleach chapter 453 : Letters [read here]

Well, that took a good 6 chapters for Ishida to reveal himself as our enemy and then get on stage.

So he’s a successor. I’m not completely surprised. It makes for good story is what I’m agreeing to. Little confused since he’s actually not a pureblood and his father is. His father doesn’t have any pride of being a Quincy, though so Ishida is our candidate.

I don’t think he likes it there. Probably came against his will. We’re talking King of the Quincies here. It was probably to go or die.

Bleach 543 0

And now the King is giving Ishida new powers. Ooooh. Exciting. This story has potential.

Introducing and reintroducing characters of the bad guys. Looks like it’s by letter instead of numbers in the Espada. The author likes to put different races of people in the story.

Bleach 543 1That’s a definite Chinese guy.

And nothing happens on the protagonist’s side! I don’t really care about these new characters. I want to know what Kenpachi’s sword spirit looks like.
