before you disregard this thread, there is a serious side to it. regarding the title of this thread, it is not true. kishimoto didn't tell me anything nor have i ever even come close to talking to him. i just wanted to see if it would get 700 posts, like that other thread got. anyway, as of the lates issue, Akatsuki has confirmed that Nibi has not yet been extracted, meaning, Yugito is still alive. It is going to take several days in order to extract the bijuu, so does anyone else see a lot of possibility that Yugito could be rescued, or wake up, or show some kind of significance? i just don't see how it's reasonable to think that she was given a face, a name, a power, and a place of origin just to be killed off without a second thought (by kishimoto, akatsuki wouldn't give it a second thought). I think it's important that naruto has a chance to meet and connect with other jinchuuriki besides gaara. at least one more, i mean there is 9 of them. anyway, i hope you've all actually read the question and not just the title, otheriwise this could get pretty flame-tastic pretty quick. let me know what you think.
