    Does the fact that Ino and Chouji are not in on this fight with asuma mean that those other two chunin non-name losers (yes I know they have names) are better than them or does this mean that there will be discussion about bijuu and junchiruki and kishi wants ever one in the villiage who is not an elite jounin or higher (except sakura) not to know about their existence, the existence of akatsuki, or the fact that naruto is a jinchiruki. This is getting ridiculous. I like naruto and all, but im pretty sure neji, lee, tenten, ino, shikamaru, chouji, shino, kiba, hina can deal with the fact that naruto gets a little boost every now and then from a demon that lives inside of him.

    with 325 we can truly appreciate the power of the kagenui- shikamaru's new offensive jutsu. It makes you wonder If any of the sound 5 would have been able to stop him if he had this jutsu before the time skip (and no kimimaro is not included).

    The reason why they arent there, is cos they (Ino and Chou) arent expendable, aka cannot be killed. These two guys are.

    Secondly, they also have a decent fanbase in amongst the yaoi (male on male pairings) fangirls especially, so having even a glimpse of em makes em all happy -- and happy fangirls means that manga raises its popularity, potentially very drastically (they praise the series into heavens and above and recruit new readers).

    And yes, his new skill would be extremely handy in the fight against the sound 5. But against the likes of Kimimaro, it's practically useless.

    Sad but true...


    Plus, Chouji and Ino might show up as reinforcements so that Shika-Ino-Chou can implement some crazy plan.

    Cuz Asuma, Izumo, and Kotetsu will all die. Most of a team dying is much more dramatic than just the leader, so Kishi brought in the expendable Chuunins to die with Asuma, while Shika lives.

    Yeah, Ino and Chouji can't die.
    Ino is also one of the rare ninjas who possess a very convenient set of jutsus to deal with Hiddan. Her presence would have ruined Shikamaru's fanservice.

    Izumo and Kotetsu = red suited Ensigns that go on away missions with Kirk in Star Trek.
