so...Asuma has passed on his last words to his team before dying in what I'm pretty sure almost everyone would agree was a touching chapter. But what comes next, will shikamaru start chain smoking? will chouji diet? will ino move in on even more partners o_O in all seriousness this chapter, whilst bringing to a close Asuma's part in the story opened up some more options. I'd have a hunch that next chapter we'll be back in konoha to see Naruto again and various people's reactions to Asuma's death but that we'll also spend some time with the Akatsuki. well thats what predictions is for, hunches, thoughts and ideas for whats going to go on next! predict away!
