Naruto Shippuuden episode 340
Another great episode!? I have a very bad feeling about this. We’ve been having so many great episodes lately that we’re bound to get lots and lots of fillers soon. Don’t be surprised when we have to wait two or three months.
This certainly was a very emotional episode. The god that’s known to most of you as Itachi has performed what most can only describe as a miracle. He stopped Kabuto’s forbidden Jutsu, the Edo Tensei. Everyone was finally set free and ready to return to the afterlife. It’s really time for final goodbyes. It wasn’t easy to see Itachi go, he was by far my most favourite character on the show, but it’s for the best. His final moments are bound to set Sasuke back on the right path after having lived most of his life with only one goal; revenge. Time to get rid of all that hate, although it suits him quite nicely.
I’ll be sure not to spoil anything for those that read the manga, but let’s just say that the real fight is about to begin. Madara is unaffected by Itachi’s effort to stop Kabuto’s Jutsu. He just resigned the contract and obtained, from what I understood, an even better body. He now has an immortal body with infinite Chakra. How the hell do you beat someone like that? He was hard enough to beat without adding more oil to the fire, and the fact that Kabuto made him even stronger by giving him the Rinnegan does not help whatsoever. It’ll truly be an amazing battle to see Madara fight against the five Kage’s, especially since their morale is dropping rapidly now that Madara keeps getting stronger.
