You have to love KYF, being all apologetic about Kishimoto's shitty writing and then being all butthurt because it caught up to his precious Minato too (nevermind practically all the rest of the cast being treated much worse and much sooner).
Personally, I didn't even care about Minato's asspull, it was bad but not as bad as the whole of the chapter. And yes, no matter how you try to polish this chapter, it'll remain a turd, because, unlike what you seemingly think, employing an Aesop isn't good writing by itself, it's HOW you employ it that separates good writing from bad writing. I'll address the two first points, considering your other two are rather moot and only a fanboy would care that much about them.
- You fill your mouth to say how Naruto is using the help from others instead of going alone, but you clearly missed two facts: that it's Naruto chakra that allows them to help in the first place and that they're being treated as a number of people to pull, not as individuals. So, in reality, it's Naruto helping himself and all that friendship bullshit is just that, bullshit, because they're not acting as his friends, but rather as his vessels. In reality, the Aesop you think Kishimoto is employing isn't being employed at all.
- If you didn't know about Obito's feelings, you clearly didn't read right the whole 50 chapters you said were built-up for this moment, specially the last chapter. Are you that dumb that you have to be patronized into the message with the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the skull or do you think it's somehow good for the writer to be so nauseatingly and repetitively blatant about a character?
PS: Way to kill a joke and once again proclaim a translation is superior to another without any evidence whatsoever to assert so. Then you wonder why people give you shit.
