Now unto the review:
Team Hebi or Team Snake or Team One Direction return to Konoha, where apparently they have been site seeing and exploring for the past three or four chapters now. Thanks for the anticipation Kishi. I bet we'll just stare at our good ol' "Those who know everything" for the next six or so chapters. You watch!
From the look of it, they appear to be in the outskirts of Konoha, perhaps at some of the old sites that were damaged and clearly affected by Pein's Shinra Tensei but sadly failed to get any of captain Yamato's wood loving. If you notice at the end of the last chapter, you'll notice what appears to be smaller shrines, possibly graves of fallen Senju and Uzumaki shinobi. I honestly think it is a shrine dedicated to the masters of sealing techniques aka the Uzumaki clan as you'll notice from the symbol at the top of the shrine.
Team Oreo-chi go inside and pick up one of the many identical ninja masks inside the shrine and they journey back to Konoha where they enter the Uchiha section of the village where they find the Uchiha Nakano shrine also in ruins. Though its not the Nakano shrine team Oreo-Chi are here for, but what is underneath it. There is a block marked by the Sharingan symbol that only opens at the presence of an Uchiha who has awakened the Sharingan and it is the same secret place alluded to by both Kabuto and Obito aka Tobi.
I've yet to truly grasp why they've ventured inside the secret Uchiha shrine. It's rather strange since they've yet to utilize the shrine in any important part of their plan. Perhaps it will be realized in the chapters to come. As Orochimaru explains to the team, if you use the mask combined with what is in Scroll X, yep, I said it mates, we've found out what was contained in Scroll X:
Scroll X contains a jutsu that allows you to release what is contained within the bowels of the Dead Demon Consuming Seal Shinigami or Death God or the Ninja Reaper as I like to call him. Upon activation of the jutsu, the Ninja Reaper will take control of the user and will cut open its bowels, causing the practitioner to do the same and die. That is if they're anybody but Oreo-Chi. Apparently he has more than 9 lives and now he's also a dragon, and oh he has his sealed arms back so good luck trying to stop him now.
I almost forgot to mention that Oreo-Chi also has all 4 former Hokage's in his control. Does Sasuke even understand what he's just offered up to Orochimaru willingly in a silver platter? The most critical part of this chapter was the fact that the souls of four sealed former Hokages were released completely defying what many considered to be impossible. I'm not gonna lie, it seemed impossible and Trollshimoto supplanted that notion through his mouthpiece, that Harry Potter looking bastard, Kabuto. Nope, I still don't feel sorry of his ass.
Many have referred to the incorrect translation of the term, "One who know everything" to disprove the notion of the Hokages being revived but it was plain for me all the way up to the correct translation "Those who knows everything" that indeed, no one knows more than the 4 last Konoha Hokages. To those who stuck to the first translation, I know...it must really suck to again be on the failing side. Don't worry, i'm sure you guys will eventually be the winners someday....however unlikely that will be.
Until then...feast thou eyes on this awesome, awesome, awesome awesome panel:
Final note: To clarify again, for those confused about why Sasuke and Team Oreo-Chi are in Konoha and doing all this feat of insanity, it is so Sasuke can get closure and clear up all the contradictory versions of the Uchiha story he's been hearing first from Tobi then from his brother Itachi and then Kabuto. The second purpose is to get an idea from the 4 former Hokages as to the weakness of the Juubi and Madara Uchiha.
I hope you guys enjoyed the chapter. Do share you thoughts.
