    I used to be a Kabuto hater with his constant encounters with the heros and Sasuke and frankly it was getting annoying.

    But after this chapter I have to say I've jumped onto the Kabuto bandwagon or the Kabutomaru bandwagon or whatever he's called now. Either way I've jumped on it and I like Kabuto's character alot more. He has alot of potential and with his final sayings at the end of the chapter I'm truly impressed. No I don't like the former Kabuto, the one that many have said could "be the final villain". Not that guy, he can just sit to the side. I like the new Kabuto. The one who declares that he wil surpass Orochimaru. The one who was changed by Naruto.

    The one who's a potential threat.

    Let's be serious here. The guy is a maniac, he looks crazy. When I mean crazy I mean seriously crazy. We don't know what he's capable of or what he could potentially do but we now now that Kabuto isn't a joke anymore, he's a true contender. Whether he will end up facing team Konoha or not is not the point. Regardless this new Kabuto seems to be a great character in itself which is a result of Naruto's own ability to change people and I have to say that is a great twist. Even if Naruto didn't mean to do it on purpose the result is still the same.

    Anyone else like this new Kabuto or am the only one out there.

    I always liked Kabuto, he was really a mystery.

    And after this chapter, it seems there is more to him, while answering some of his past. I doubt we seen the last of Kabuto.

    I definitely agree. I'm liking this insane Kabuto, especially with his words to surpass Orochimaru at the end and that look in the spread. Matter of fact, I like the "insane" characters in general...don't really know why.

    I think it was more that the extreme fans turned off many to him, not that he was a bad character or anything. I've always liked him and always thought he was the most mysterious character with hidden motives. I'm glad to see some of his mystery finally being explained and him having a more important and sinister role than just a lackey.

    I'd more or less lost faith in him and quit talking about him, but this puts me back in the ranks of the Kabutards. :whoo

    Always did like him, but now with the added depth and insanity I have an incredible lust after more of his character.

    I've always liked him, but now he's got a bit more depth. What always drew me was the mystery, and his potential. Now we've gotten a little more insight, and it looks like he's going to start using that potential.

    I completely agree with the OP. Up until now, Kabuto has always been kind of a nuisance. With chapter 356, Kabuto moves up a notch in my book, putting him at notch 1.

    When Kabuto learned the secret to Orochimaru's Jutsu, he unlocked the ability like Orochimaru to body snatch and absorb their jutsus. Kabuto learns, and grows more stronger by acquiring more knowledge.

    I didn't hate or loved him until now, but this chapter has changed my view on him somehow. He was surely badass this time. Now, it's time to carry it on and make further steps of badassery, otherwise this chapter was a waste of his character.

    I never liked Kabuto. Certainly the Kabuto/Oro fusion is interesting (mostly for Oro part) but not enough to be a final villian instead AL.

    i would kinda prefer to see itachi and AL fight, and itachi die, then i would kabuto 2.0 vs AL fight... kabuto 2.0 is too interesting to be used as fodder for AL hype unlike itachi

    I thought Kabuto was interesting but I never once thought he was cool until this chapter. Good job Kishimoto you're keeping the series fresh.

    On second thought that line he had about Tsunade probably being single was pretty awesome too, but that's it.

    I'm digging the new Kabuto. I used to dislike him, but now that he has become a major player in the series I can't wait to see what happens. This chapter also disproves that Kabuto was Jiraiya's informant.

    I've always liked him and was waiting for him to finally betray Orochimaru (so many hints were dropped). So naturally, I was pretty disappointed with the wasted character potential when it didn't happen and he was simply a devastated right-hand man after Sasuke defeated Oro.

    But uh, I would say a twisted Orochimaru hybrid Kabuto fueled by the special gift of Naruto to wreck havoc upon the Naruto world is a good enough save for me to like his character again. :amuse

    I didn't used to like him. However, lately, I've began liking him more and more. This chapter just made my appreciation for his character sky-rocket upwards from there. :amuse
