Might be boring as fuck because nobody cares for this manga anymore, but this atmosphere and writing beat anything Kishimoto wrote during the whole war. That was a war. Hashirama is a troubled kid amidst all that. Good writing. Naruto is a loudmouth moron who can't say anything past : ILL SAVE THEM ALL LUUL, ILL BEAT U TO A PULP LUUL and that is NOT a war. It's the whole world vs alien invasion and two jerks who want to "change the world for the better by killing everybody".
