    Platty do you think there is a reason for the Manga's release date going lower and lower into the month? Didn't it start off as being released early, like almost of the first week or two of the month. Now it's almost at the end :hm

    I think he started drawing an entire chapter full of Rinnegan porn, but gave up halfway through when the editors deemed his drawings inappropriate for the series' intended audience (8-12 year old boys, literal manbabies and 40+ year old single housewives who just love shipping those shounen characters), so the following chapter had to be delayed for 2-3 weeks. That's my supposition tho

    :maybe

    If I am not mistaken, there might have been a break during the time the chapter was supposed to be released. Which resulted in making the new chapters to get delayed. So, for example, chapter 4 (just an example) was going to be released at the end of February because of the break, and then chapter 5 was going to be released immediately after that early March.

    I think that was the reason to why we started to get the chapters at the end of each month. However, it seems like every time it gets further and further, perhaps they are doing that so they can eventually release it at the beginning of each month again. :hm

    Looking back, the gap between chapter 5 and 6 was "only" 5 weeks compared to the usual 3-4 weeks. So I suppose it's not that big of a deal.

    Chapter 5 didn't announce the following chapter's issue/date, so maybe there was some kind of scheduling issue.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Also, Momoshiki's design is way, way better and more in line to previous villains of that magnitude. In the movie he looked like a regular fucking dolt with a level 2 curse seal. And he was goofy. This here is downright frightening and I like it.

    As for the story itself - no one likes retellings, neither did the DB fans when first two movie retelling arcs came into Super.

    He has to touch it to absorb it, unlike Mono who doesn't need that. Maybe the absorption is the special ability of his rinnegan ( like ameno or Limbo).
    The problem is in the movie after mono got the power up by the scientists he shot some jitsu at them so sauce had the time to run away and save Bolt, however Herr, he used the shadow binding jitsu right after he got the power up the consequence is that no one had enough time to react or do anything at all.

    Pain always create a weird barrier that absorbs it, but there is always a contact with the jutsu X
    X
    That's what I mean by "touching" it, so I guess sasuke also needs that contact with the jitsu unlike Mono who absorbs it without that.
    And yep they did the shadow stuff for 2 reasons :
    -Make Bolt look great again :catskully
    -by that sasuke's plan seems smarter and the reason why he brought Bolt seems more genuine. In other word he predicted what could have happen and knew Bolt could have use his invisible rasengan to distract Mono if anything happens :smoke that's why I am not particularly mad about it.

    Sasuke's feet are touching the ground where the shadow is.:nonon

    He shouldn't even need jutsu to escape.
    War Arc Naruto broke out of shadow possession by the sheer potency of his chakra. Sasuke did the same with Danzo's Curse Seal.

    Naruto has the excuse of being restricted by Chakra receivers that disrupt chakra. But what's Sasuke's excuse for standing there looking stupid?:facepalm


    Or simply use Susano'o to fly away from it.:zaru

    Oh right, Sasuke isn't allowed to use Susano'o anymore because only Nardo is allowed chakra mechs now.

    I think it's different based on power. For example, Kinkaku broke it easily as well when he was using V6 6-tails.
    Meanwhile, Shikamaru was able to stop both Kinshiki & Momoshiki with it in the movie (until Momoshiki absorbed it obviously), so I think
    that tell us Shikamaru's shadow jutus became much stronger. Even in the manga itself, after they received Naruto's chakra, they were able to stop the Juubi.


    Now, Momoshiki is the one using it, so it makes sense that his is far stronger than Shikamaru's.

    Yeah of course he should absorb the shadow with his feet :catdude So Nagato and Pain raised their hands for no reason in those panels, they barrier can absorb it for them ( Madara also do the same movement of the hands to absorb).
    Oh why isn't he doing this why isn't he doing that at this moment it could be more effective blablablablablabla he doesn't do what you say for the same reason Naruto doesn't use frog kata or for the same reason Rinnegan users don't use it to wreck everyone , plot. And let's not forget the shadow technique he used against them is stronger than the one he absorbed from Shika, ( 10X or something like that ) he absorbs a jutsu and give it back 10X stronger , so the shadow that Momo used is basically Adult Shikamaru's shadow but 10X stronger :smoke

    I think it's sort of different because:

    I. The techniques are not the same, Momoshiki absorbed Shikamaru's version of the technique, whilst Sasuke is dealing with Shikidia's style

    II. The shadows were physically covering up his body, probably playing a role for it to be absorbed easier?

    Not sure but look at it yourself:

    Momoshiki:
    Spoiler:

    X


    Sasuke:
    Spoiler:
    X


    Plus there's the fact that Momo'Kinshiki >>>>>>>> Shikamaru :doge

    What machine is stronger then Naruto & Sasuke? :sag
    Stop...just stop.

    Anything to defend this series....:facepalm

    So instead of Naruto and Sasuke's nerf being bad writing your going to criticize them being too strong in the War Arc?:giogio

    No, the War Arc shouldn't be ignored. What exactly doesn't make sense to you?

    This is a story about magic A.K.A "Chakra". They were never regular humans to begin with.:giogio

    Blablablablabla it's a story about chakra and magic yes, but chakra was never unlimited, they aren't regular humans. But kishi created an universe with its laws and mechanics, and in these mechanics people get tired and they actually run out of chakra, :caticon
    I said I wouldn't use the war arc to jauge someone durability because it's bad written not that the whole war arc should be ignore :catskully
    Oh so now it's Sasuke AND naruto being nerfed? Weren't you the one who were complaining about the fact that only naruto uses avatars? And how the author is hyping him? So now he is also nerfed? :doge
    Oh and pretty much everyone criticized them being too strong in the war arc, most of the complaints about power scaling in this manga are bout the war arc :troll

    Not everyone has the same Chakra reserves which you know. So what exactly doesn't make sense?

    Simply saying something doesn't make sense isn't an argument.:lbj

    Naruto is the 9 tails Jinchuriki, half an Uzumaki, and has reincarnated Chakra from Asura. Why exactly is his endurance some surprise?

    Same with Sasuke, an Uchiha who has Indra's reincarnated chakra.
    Naruto and Sasuke's current abilities were given during the War Arc so there's no other choice but to use that as a gauge.:catsmug

    Where did I mention Naruto and Sasuke being needed?:lbj
    Yes, so to counter power inflation let's retcon instead and make Naruto and Saauke weak.

    Everyone knows the best way to fix bad writing is to use even more bad writing.:lalala
