Re: has anyone noticed yet?
^You stated it wrongly. Before the timeskip Naruto used a shadow clone to handle the shape manipulation while Naruto released the chakra. Basically the main body only released the chakra and the shadow clone shaped it because Naruto had problems controlling 100% of his chakra.
But after the timeskip we have only seen Naruto use the Rasengan once by himself and that was when he attacked Itachi's shadow clone, all of the other times he used a shadow clone to help with the shape manipulation.
But what we are debating about is whether Naruto formed the Wind natured Rasengan(Fuuton Rasengan) in his hand with out the aid of a shadow clone. But we should just wait until the new chapter comes out.
