Re: Naruto 461 Prediction / Spoiler discussions
My prediction: Sasuke v Raichu lasts 2 chapters. Simultaneously, we see Madara's conversation with Naruto. At the end of 462, Madara informs Naruto that Sasuke is fighting the Raikage as they speak, without a thought, Naruto rushes out. As Kakashi and Yamato watch him leave, Madara vanishes. It cuts back to Raichu v Sasuke. Depending on who is winning, and about to likely deal a death blow, Naruto comes in at the last second and stops whoever was about to kill. Then we get a slightly one-sided fight between Sasuke and Naruto, the latter of whom winning. This results in Sasuke having to retreat. This leads him to either: Take Itachi's eyes, Confront Madara and Zetsu, or both. Either way, it somehow leads up to a far longer, more balanced showdown between Sasuke and Naruto, which leads to a major plot developing shift.
