Mangaka: Masashi Kishimoto Title: A Bloody Night! Rating: 7.5/10
Synopsis: The heart to heart between Naruto and the Kyuubi finally comes to an end and we’re back on the battlefield (without Naruto sadly). Neji is completely exhausted and Kiba (who’s becoming finer and finer, fufufu) advises him to see the medic team while he handles things. Then, we have a scene switch to Itachi-sama *sigh* and Pain who are trying to figure out which of them has prettier eyes…I’m serious. So anywho, Neji finally makes it to the medical ninjas and Sakura sorts him out. However, a mysterious ninja begins to make his way to Sakura’s tent without raising suspicion. Then, taihen desu! Three medic nins are dead. Despite their stringent chakra checks the medical teams discover that there’s a spy among them. Unbeknownst to the lot of them, the mysterious ninja hides within the shadows of the tent and observes their every movement. Neji, who is awesome, vows to find the spy using his swirly eyes. He tells the medical team about the suspicious person but just as they ask him who it is……STAB! He walks out like a boss with a murderous facial expression 😐 Meanwhile, the ‘suspicious’ person finds Sakura, stares her in the face and professes his undying……
Likes: What the suspicious person told Sakura (I lol’ed). This chapter was surprisingly good. An interesting twist to tell you the truth. Would the real Neji kill people like that though? Wouldn’t he use his 360 dance move instead? Someone needs to tell Tenten that her man is being framed.
Dislikes: “Heh…The little baby’s finally learned how to stand up for himself” <- Really Nine Tails? Really?? and then, “I’m a living mass of malevolence!” Yeah…keep trying to convince yourself of that. Is it just me or was the fox pouting just a teensy bit when Naruto told him bye? 😐 I sooo wanted Sakura to tell the guy about her ‘someone else’. Naruto is going to arrive epically on the battlefield and, in his glorious awesome sennin splendour, he will ninja-kiss Hinata. Yes…ninja-kiss: In your FACE Sakura lool. I’m looking forward to the next chapter. I hope Masashi-sama can maintain this level of interest for the next few chapters to come.

mu§e: 7/10 – Interesting chapter at last! Waiting to see where this is leading up to…though part of me believes Kishi is running out of ideas and is thus making Neji look like a betrayer. Neji? Please? Last person on EARTH to betray the leaf village. I’d sooner believe that of…well…someone else other than Neji!
Random Hot Topic: Neji…need I say anything else?
