<spoiler 'show="" spoiler="" for="" naruto="" chapter="" 475'="" 'hide="" spoiler="" for="" naruto="" chapter="" 475'="">Let's cut to the chase on this one. An arm covered in eyeballs is SO GROSS. They really need to get over this whole doujutsu craze in Naruto. The next thing you know, Danzou's going to whip Sharingans out of his nipples. YUCK!
In less disgusting news, I don't know why it didn't occur to me that Fuu's from the Yamanaka clan. The whole mind-body swapping technique was pretty much a dead giveaway, plus his white/blond hair. I guess I had trouble imagining someone from Ino's clan as a top ninja of Root. What was less obvious though is that Torune's an Aburame. Unless I've overlooked something, I don't recall him performing any techniques until now, let alone bug-related ones. Now that I think about it, the mask he wears does follow the clan's tendency to hide their eyes. That said, I'm not going to get into the speculation game regarding Aburame Shikuro. However, I will admit that bringing up an unfamiliar name was a nice teaser of things to come. Much like the Yamanakas, I didn't really picture an Aburame being the other top ninja in Root. My impressions of those two clans came primarily from Ino and Shino, who aren't not too impressive. As such, I like how they changed my opinion of them here.
Regardless, I don't see how anyone's supposed to fight Madara at this point when he has the ability to phase in and out of existence as he pleases. Perhaps the only way to attack him is with a similar space-time distortion technique, such as Kakashi's Mangekyou Kamui. I definitely don't see Naruto being able to do anything against him unless he starts innovating some new techniques, but I'm sure they'll tackle that obstacle if/when we get there. For now, it's Sasuke vs Danzou. I totally forgot Sasuke and Karin were just chilling inside Madara's alternate realm all this time. This fight should be interesting, but I was actually happier about seeing Karin again.</spoiler>
