    He might still survive...somehow. :hm

    But if not then:

    - A Kara member saved him from death.

    - Ao was just really REALLY lucky.

    Or both.

    One might also just say PLOT.

    I think we'll get a 5 page flashback to how he survived next chapter.

    Him becoming an Outer - yes. His survival might not be explained in detail, though. I'm somewhat less sure of either of them happening after the latest chapter.

    Isn't he an 'Outer'?

    This arc has his name on it, so who knows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yes. :naruramen

    Previous arc was called the Mujina Bandits and we learnt next to nothing about the Mujina and their leader. Wouldn't be surprised if KK hogs the spotlight in subsequent chapters while Ao is silently sidelined, just like Shojoji was.

    True that, I felt Mujina arc was rushed.
    WSJ editor: "Hurry the F up, get rid of this green krusty ass villain that nobody cares about. Move the plot."

    In this case, Ao is a character from Naruto. His survival should be explored and explained. I hope it happens (insert optmistic). It will be a mess, that's for sure.

    I believe it will be explained in the anime. I doubt it will happen in the manga.
    It's just like how the manga showed the Class Rep, but if you want to know the details, you must watch the anime.
    Or how they referenced the school trip, but the details in the anime.

    I think the same will happen with Ao (although the order is reversed?). In which case, it's for the best, don't feel like waiting for months just for a flashback and recovery session. :meh

    If the Manga doesn't explain it, I'm willing to bet the Anime will.

    If neither, that's dumb lol.

    i'm more inclined to believe it. Kashin Koji will probably spill the bean and Ao last moment before he dies. Ao flashback may not get much cover in the manga material but the Anime will likely expand it and flesh out his character better just like how both the movie and manga failed to give Momoshiki and Kinshiki backstory but the Anime will give the Ootsutski more screen time and depths.

    First time I'm seeing a pic of Kodachi. Fatass.:pek

    It'll probably turn out Ao isn't fully dead yet and we get a flashback while he's dying or something ala Danzo. Still can't believe they brought back a random fodder known only for having Byakugan only for him to not have/use it. Way to shit the bed.

    If it leads or build up to something greater, sure. If it's to just say "See, that's how he survived" then it's pointless.

    Like Hussain mentioned it will most likely be expanded in the anime, otherwise it will remain as a 'just because' situation.

    It's pointless to explain how someone who should've been dead, survived and joined the bad guys? 'kay then.

    Yes. It's useful if only it leads to something greater or build up the villains.
    If it does neither it's pointless.

    If it changes something about the story, then sure. If, at the flashback end, we don't have any new piece of information beside how Ao survived it's a complete waste of time.

    I care more about how Ao joined Kara than how he survived that Bijuudama TBH. I feel like they'll show some half destroyed Ao being repaired by game boy advances :scust

    Uh, pass.

    It would be sloppy to not show why and how Ao joined Kara.

    I could care less how Ao survived.

    How he turned to the dark side, what made him like this. is what people are interested in.

    First of all, it's surprising how he survived an attack that still killed Inoijin and Shikaku. But the details of his survival are gonna be explained in a filler episode
