The explosion at the end would make Michael Bay flat line due to a massive orgasm.
In my opinion fights like this one are soulless. Energy blasts being tossed around so casually takes away from the wow factor, even dbz bothered to include other types of exchange before and in the middle of flinging energy bolts.
The chapter wasn't bad, just uninspired. We've seen this shit before, and how can I get excited for the Juubi when all it will do is fling even bigger energy blasts around ?
Weren't the rookies and a platoon going over to where Naruto was ? Maybe they were killed by that blast, that would be interesting.
