The five Kages, Team Samui, Sasuke's group, and Naruto's group are all their way to the Kages' meeting.Before sneaking out of the village and following other ninjas without permission, you should always take the time to stretch as Naruto demonstrates.Summary:In the forest, Danzo singlehandedly kills the attackers and continues his journey to the Kages' meeting. Back in Konoha, Kakashi tells Sai not to reveal to Root that Naruto is leaving. Kakashi states that he knows Danzo sent Sai to spy on Naruto, but he has faith in Sai to make the right decision. Later, when Naruto is saying goodbye to Konohamaru, Kakashi knocks out two Root ninjas who were spying on Naruto, and Kakashi notes that Root doesn't trust Sai anymore. At the Konoha Library, Team Samui finishes writing some scrolls and leaves for the Kages' meeting, but unbeknownst to the team members they are being tracked by Yamato.The Kages' meeting takes place in the Land of Iron, a neutral country with a strong military composed of samurais. Gaara is the first Kage to arrive at the meeting place. Meanwhile, Sasuke's group is on the outskirts trying to find the easiest way in to the meeting place, and Naruto's group has also arrived within the country.~~~~~~~~~~~~~I'm disappointed that Danzo didn't do anything cool with his Sharingan. Yeah, he killed a bunch of nameless assassins, but anyone could do that. At least Kakashi has his own special moves with his Sharingan. While Danzo himself seems competent, his underlings are definitely not and so Naruto and company managed to escape Konoha with only the slightest of efforts. I wonder why Yamato suddenly agreed to go along, but I supposed he has a duty to watch over Naruto.Anyways, looks like all the important parties are their way to the meeting place inside the Land of Iron, a country with samurais instead of ninjas. I see ninja vs. samurai battles in the battle, although the named characters should be able to beat down a few foot soldiers without any problems. I'm hoping that since the country is called the Land of Iron, the soldiers there will have guns and cannons. Hopefully the Kages' meeting and subsequent fights will be enough for me to overlook the impending emo-fest between Sasuke and Naruto.And what's up with the Mizukage? I guess she's on her way to becoming a running joke in the series.
