Kakashi continues to battle Zabuza and Haku.
Wouldn't be a zombie fight without some body parts flying.
With Kakashi's arm stuck in Haku, Zabuza turns around to cut down both Haku and Kakashi. Haku is cut in half, and Kakashi receives a cut on his front side. Haku is caught by the shadow jutsu, and Kakashi moves to deal with Zabuza while thinking back to a conversation with Naruto just after the battle against Zabuza and Haku. During the conversation, Naruto repeated Haku's words that people become strong when they have something to protect and stated that he liked Zabuza and Haku despite those two being enemies. Realizing that Haku and Zabuza are no more than mindless killing machines, Kakashi moves in and stabs Zabuza through the chest with Lightning Blade. Zabuza is then caught by the shadow jutsu and Maki arrives to bind both Zabuza and Haku. The fog lifts Zabuza and Haku are restrained, and Kakashi tells Sai to prepare the "Root" sealing techniques (even though Sai states that he doesn't know such things) and states that he is going to go on a rampage.
Elsewhere, Kitsuchi's forces are struggling against the resilient white Zetsus while thousands of White Zetsus move past underground. Meanwhile, in a rocky area, Gaara's sensor sands detect the otherwise invisible zombie of Muu, the second Tsuchikage.
I'm glad that the battle against Zabuza and Haku ended quickly, since it'd be pointless to drag it on. It looks that even though Kabuto's special control gives him absolute control of the zombies, it doesn't make them any stronger than before. Kakashi was able to beat Zabuza at the beginning of the series, and being even stronger now Kakashi didn't have much trouble beating zombie Zabuza. Kakashi seems pissed now, and we'll see if that'll help against the remaining zombie swordsmen. For now though, it seems that the story is switching to another front, with Gaara taking the stage and presumably fighting against more zombies and/or Zetsus. I guess all the "important" characters need their share of the spotlight before Naruto can see any action.
