If Asuma is dead that's worthy of a ten from me D:
kishi finally got his shit togther. 10/10
9/10 since Asuma could have shown some uber jutsus before going down.
10/10, a great final for a very controversial match, the chapter was emotional and make his death something, of course if they somehow revive Asuma (thing that I am 99% wnot happen) will change this chapter into a nonsense 1/10
that's the point! Kishi didnt pull of another shonen cliche where the hero dies after an awe inspiring rdicilous showcasing of brute strength. He just died. Just like that, you know? That just makes things so much more real
small deaths are always the saddest.
9/10 for the same reason
Very emotional and well done chapter.
I like how Kishimoto made this more of a "War movie" death where a character dies without really accomplishing anything. It makes things more dramatic, darker, more realistic, and violates cliches.
10/10 This chap makes me emo
Asuma showed nothing. He was just standing there and got killed. In fact if he wasn't moving at all and was bringed down with first strike it won't be any different. If "God Aoba" hasn't showed his entire team would be anihilated. This death was close to being meaningless.
Now if Asuma got owned like that, what kind of PnJ would be needed for Naruto to survive? Wind element the strongest? My ass.
8/10 for me because I do think it was necessary for someone to die to boost the plot but "Not another Sarutobi" that was unecessary. It could've been Kotetsu or Izumo and we still would've felt the same to boost the story plot but I guess in the upcoming arcs we are going to see shikamaru respecting Naruto a lot more now.
Ten. Didn't like the art but it was still rather lovely.
Best chapter in a long while, 9/10. Actually, probably the best chapter of part 2, as far as I'm concerned.
Also, the best Shounen death I have seen so far (unless you count Death Note as a Shounen).
Unfortunately, it is still not memorable, so it won't get a perfect 10 from me. There is neither outstanding art, nor dialogue to be found here, though there is not much that could be criticized either.
(Do keep in mind that for me, an average chapter is 5.5, whereas the average Naruto Forums user considers 7 or 8 to be average.)
Best chapter in a long time.
a small death with lots of tears and emotions.
A very touching and emotional chapter.
His last words to his 3 former students show how much he cared for them.
Also interesting to see some Team 10 flashbacks.
You know it's a fantastic week for Naruto when I have trouble deciding if OP was better or not. Normally OP completely blows the other mangas away, but this week... it was too close to call...
Asuma's death was very emotional and triggered nice flashbacks with InoShikaCho. It was basically their pass to adulthood as they don't have a babysitter any more, contrary to the other former genins (especially Naruto).
What makes me rate it 10 instead of 9 is that it is probably the last chapter without Naruto. Let's benefit from the fresh air before the orange-dressed brawler regains possession of his own property!
10. Horribly emotionally involved between teammates, between mentor/students, and bewteen men. My rate-o-meter cannot go up anymore after that last Shikamaru panel. That and Sasuke's huggie with Naruto in part 2 are definitely my favorite moments.
Gave it my first ever 10 here.
To me, clear 10, not even a 9, so much comes together over this chapter, you have to read it twice, hell just for the earings you need to read it twice.
Meh I just don't care for Asuma so it was a rather boring chapter. After the awesomeness of last week I guess it was necessary and all but it's one of those chapters I just browse through and only think of what might happen next. I think it won't be as bad when I'm rereading the whole volume, but after having known for a week that Asuma was going to give his last words it just didn't interest me. I only hope Kishi won't fill the next chapter completely with grief, which would really annoy me.
9. Now if I could only live long enough to see this animated. (a joke about the fillers because they never seem to end)
1! aaaaaaah oh Gooooood!!! HE'S DEAD!!! AAAAAAHHH NOOOO!!! HE'S DEAD!!!!
10.....anything that tugs the heart-strings deserves an 11...but 10 is the best I can do with this poll.
....and if the manga didn't make you the least bit upset or emotional.....then I can only imagine how the anime version of this "Asuma Arc" in the future will turn out.
9/10 a very emotional and touching chapter
First 10 ever from me as well. Kishi is back on track!!!!
10/10 beacuse of memory of the begining of team 10 xD
9 for me, don't belive in 10
The chapter was great, i have no complaints. 9 out of 10 the only reason why i didint give it a 10 was cause Gai wasent in this chapter...its as simple as that.
