Sasuke's crew engage Raikage and his guards in battle while the other Kages do more talking.Sasuke and his friends look like a fine group of trick or treaters, but unfortunately the Raikage only gives out knuckle sandwiches. Summary:Sasuke is attacked by Raikage and his two bodyguards. Jugo and Suigetsu jump in to backup Sasuke despite Sasuke's insistence on going solo. One of the Raikage's guards Shi starts looking around to see if there's another member from Sasuke's group, and this forces to Karin to hide her chakra.Back in the meeting hall, the other Kages are in a stand-off. Danzo bluntly tells everyone else to hand power to him so he can save the world from Akatsuki, but nobody believes him and Gaara (despite himself being a former homicidal maniac) lectures Danzo on the importance of morals. Tsuchikage makes fun of Gaara for being a noob, but Gaara responds by stumping the Tsuchikage with a philosophical question. One of the Tsuchikage's guards decides to go watch the Sasuke vs. Raikage fight. Danzo's guards also want to go watch the fight for a chance to grab Sasuke's eyes, but Ao demands that they stay put.Back outside, Jugo has transformed into crazy killer mode, but the Raikage is unimpressed.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I'm glad this chapter mostly focused on what's going on at the summit and not the part about Madara reciting his version of Sasuke's story to Naruto. The battle between Sasuke and Raikage's groups is in the early stages so not much to talk about there, but that talk between the other Kages and their guards was quite amusing. Good ol' Danzo is as hilarious as ever. It's amazing how he doesn't even bother to hide his intentions and just tells everyone to hand over the power despite all the other parties being hostile. At least he knows what he wants lol. The Mizukage also seems to have her eyes set on Gaara, which is bound to set off cougar alarms. It's implied that she likes young and innocent boys, but Gaara is far from innocent. And finally, was Gaara partly making fun of Tsuchikage's height by asking the old man "when did you rise above yourselves?" Or maybe that was just a funny translation by the scanlators.
