In the battle against Pain, Naruto's situation degrades from bad to worse.Summary:Hungry Ghost Realm has Naruto immobilized with chakra sapping hold, but he doesn't realize that sage chakra is different than normal chakra and soon starts changing into a stone frog. Naruto breaks away after Hungry Ghost is turned to stone and states the God Realm is the only one left, but both God Realm and Katsuyu informs him that there is a real body somewhere manipulating the other bodies. Fukasaku and Shima have charged up for the gengjutsu, but before they can pull it off God Realm uses his ability to pull Fukasaku up close and stabs the old frog. Naruto tries to save Fukasaku but fails, and God Realm then pins Naruto's hands to the ground with his blade. With Naruto immobilized again and Fukasaku out of the picture, God Realm decides now is a good time for him to tell Pain's story.No!!! Fukasaku is a protected species!!!Back in what's left of Konoha, the surviving ninja plan out what they should do and they reach a consensus to go look for Pain's real body. Shikamaru's father Shikaku tells everyone to carry the body of dead out the rubble to find clues, and Inoichi thinks that he has figured Pain out after hearing the words "carrying body".~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Naruto gets rid of Hungry Ghost Realm on a sheer fluke, but God Realm still seems to be beyond him and the frogs. If Pain hadn't seen Jiraiya and the two frogs pull off the genjutsu then Naruto might have had a chance, but unfortunately Pain has seen it and knows exactly what they were up to. All that charging by the old frogs went to waste which was kind of sad, but maybe Fukasaku isn't dead yet and will use his last breath to pull off the genjutsu. Currently though it looks like Naruto's fate will rest in the hands of his fellow Konoha ninjas as they search for Pain's real body. They'll have plenty of time though since God Realm has decided to monologue for at least the next chapter.
