Two expected developments in this week’s edition of Naruto. The first was that removing the stake only defeats the puppet and doesn’t free Son Goku from Tobi’s grasp, and this isn’t surprising since Tobi cannot to lose any of the beasts if he has any chance of carrying out his master plan.
The second is that Kurama and Naruto finally agree to cooperate and fight together as a team. This of course has been a long time coming. It took Naruto a long time to convince Kurama, and it also took Kurama some time to finally stop being tsundere and get to the point, but the day when Naruto can finally access to full power of the nine-tails may be at hand.
Let’s see if Naruto can do the full beast transformation and used the Tailed Beast Bomb now that Kurama has decided to help out.
