Naruto and Minato have a little conversation together.Summary:In the real world, God Realm is shocked that Naruto was able to break through and wonders if he has to make an even bigger Chibaku Tensei. Within Naruto's consciousness, Minato confirms that he is Naruto's father and brings Naruto to a different place so the demon fox can't interrupt their conversation.16 years of suffering and angst has culminated into... just a punch in the gut? You're letting him off too easily, Naruto.At the start of the conversation Naruto punches Minato in the guts for sealing the demon fox within him. Minato explains that he did it so that Naruto will have the power to fight off the ninja who made the demon fox attack Konoha all those years ago. Minato identifies the ninja as Tobi of Akatsuki and states that this ninja has manipulated Pain into attacking Konoha. Naruto wonders what he should do against all the hate in the world and Minato states that Naruto must find his own answer. Minato states that he believes in Naruto and departs after repairing the demon fox's seal.Back in the real world, God Realm notices that Naruto has suddenly transformed back into human form Sage Mode and is staring at him from rock ball formed by the Chibaku Tensei.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~A transitional and recap chapter, and it wasn't too interesting since Minato didn't reveal anything that we didn't already know. Naruto punching Minato in the gut at the start of the talk was a nice touch, although I expected Naruto would do worse than that. It's funny that Minato knows about the village getting destroyed and Jiraiya's death but doesn't (care to) remember his son's age. Naruto also forgot to mention about his mother, but perhaps Minato knows that as well. I wonder if Minato has always been watching the world through Naruto's eyes. If that's the case, then it'd be pretty awkward for Naruto to get a girlfriend since good ol' dad will always be peeping.Anyways, it looks like my prediction of Naruto returning to Sage Mode was right, and it's appropriate since part of fighting Pain was to get revenge for Jiraiya. I don't understand why Naruto instantly returned to Sage Mode after Minata resealed the demon fox, since doesn't Naruto need someone to summon his last clone? I don't really care though as long as we get a nice finish to the fight.
