Naruto Shippuuden episode 267
Awesome! The war is finally starting and it won’t be long before loads of battles break loose. It is only a matter of time at this point. The strange thing is that Naruto Shippuuden’s ratings have slightly dropped, even though it’s about to get really good. It makes you wonder what is going on in the anime community.
Kabuto has been a busy bee, really. He has been reviving Shinobi after Shinobi. He even brought back four strong Kage’s, one of which turned out to be Gaara’s father. It seems that all of them still have their emotions and memories, although Kabuto will probably remove those as well when the time comes. I doubt that he wants to lose those Kage’s because of their emotions and memories, seeing as the Edo Tensei is still imperfect and can be cancelled when the resurrected become too emotional. I don’t really mind anymore. I would love to see the battle between Gaara and his father. I’m pretty sure his father will be surprised to find out that his son is the current Kazekage.
The rest of the episode was pretty much about the Allied Shinobi Forces’ strategies to win this war. Basically, they want to split Gaara’s forces to aid the forces at “Battleground A”, in order to ensure that they win their battle and can move on to the next battleground. This was based on the expectation that the Kage’s won’t attack when they see the enemy moving about, but will that really work? Keeping in mind that the Kage’s probably won’t move when they still have their memories and emotions. What if Kabuto removes those and the Kage’s become mindless puppets? I doubt that they would wait and see what the enemy would, but that they would just attack instead.
It’s all very complicated right now. It’s only a matter of time before the real story unfolds and Naruto joins the war. People like Kabuto will always lose, no matter what, so I’m not really worried about him and the threat that he poses right now. I’m more worried about those Kage’s. Gaara is strong, but not nearly strong enough to take on those four. I have actually been wondering for a while now whether Gaara is stronger, just as strong as or weaker than when he was a Jinchuuriki. I wonder…
