Gaara is the one with the strongest shield but it is useless most of the times ...

Pretty funny chapter. Naruto failing to create a Bijuudama. Raikage cutting himself. And let's just include a piss panel for good measure.

So yeah, Sage Mode was used. Thought it was almost forgotten.
An easy win but still a nice chapter.

That was actually pretty smart. Figuring out that he was originally defeated by his own lightning spear. Kind of funny.

I love this chapter. I really like Naruto when he's in his Sage Mode. He looks cool especially his eyes, wooh... I could fall for Naruto when he's that. But, I don't like his Kyuubi Chakra Mode. It reminds me of a super saiyajin.

That was pretty awesome. Good of Naruto to figure that out. No wonder the Third Raikage didn't want to talk about how he got that scar, it would be hella embarassing. Nice to see sage mode used as well.

Second Mizukage is so awesome, I wonder what his abilites are besides the mirage, guess we'll see next chapter.

Okay, I'll admit it. The secret behind the scar was clever.

Awesome! Gaara gets to fight on the next chapter! It has been awhile since he got a SERIOUS, more than one chapter fight, without a lot of talking, fight.

Looks like both mode's got some advantages over each other :d. Regular rasengan trumps all. Gotta say I definitely did not see Naruto making Raikage hit himself coming.

Ahhhhhhh. I had a feeling that he did it to himself, right when the Hachibi said that they both fell unconscious while holding their jutsus, it was easy to tell he did it to himself

That was disappointing...I thought he finally perfected the demon bomb thing. He better perfect it by the time sasuke skewer's him on his Susanoo sword.

I think it is perfected, but he has just used up too much chakra.

It was great to see Sage mode hasn't been discarded for good.

Seriously, this is the most boring war I've ever witnessed. I know I've said this before, but it needs to be reiterated. What the hell Kishi.

Nice to see Sage Mode pop up, if only for a moment. And though the 3rd Raikage went down like a doofus, the chapter didn't feel like a waste. I'm hoping Gaara can take down that relic Mizukage without Naruto's help.

Yes it's nice to see sage mode again and it's also good that the release of chapter is early. Looking forward to Gaara vs 2nd Mizukage's fight next chapter!

Find it kind of hard to believe that Naruto could dodge the Raikage's attack like that in just sage mode, considering he could bareley get passed the current Raikage in kyubi mode. And what happened to his black lightning?

Funny as hell chapter!

That was good, I mean unlike before they would have finished the conversation before an attack will happen, but now I'm glad they've changed it

Lol so that was a PEE

Well that makes sense.. you'll only get hurt with your own power

Well at least Naruto used his skills and tactical knowledge rather than the hax bomb.

I couldn't stop laughing my head off for 2 reasons
1. Naruto seemed smart for once
2. The Raikage ended up being beaten with his own attack (epic fail)

Apparantly in Sage mode, your reflexes are quicker and more precise than in Kyuubi mode

Glad to see sage mode back... Kyuubi mode is strong but I dont like its design... anyway Naruto ended this fight in a very smart manner ... I didint think of that one. Next is another Gaara fight.. hope it does not end as fast as the fight against his dad

Alright that's Volume 58 down, and it's probably been the strongest volume since this war arc's started. On to the chapter itself, it's a bit weird how powerful this one Raikage is but I thought the solution here was clever and the double-spread page was pretty nice.

Outside of that, this volume was mostly strong because of Itachi. I don't know, I really enjoyed his calm bad-ass approach to things, and how out of all the characters in Naruto, Itachi probably best embodies what ninjas actually are. And I do like how his speech to Naruto ended up being something that related to him personally, as he tried to solve the Sasuke issue all by himself. And the whole revelation with the Crow was nice, fills in some gaps with Itachi, the amount of planning on his part doesn't feel like BS to me, and that probably helps because it ended up failing on him, albeit freeing himself from Kabuto's control is a good consolation prize. The ten year wait thing is certainly the low-point. It's not like I have trouble accepting something like that considering the powers of the jutsu, it's just they way it was introduced made it clear as a cheap get out card for Kishimoto here. Ultimately though, it's not that big of a drag.

Not sure how I felt about the beginning of the volume re-contextualizing Gaara's backstory. I do think the old variant was a bit more powerful, though I don't dislike the new interpretation (although honestly, it makes his father seem even more like dick), and I think the growth at the end for Gaara was nice, with him forgiving his father and it's nice to see him get the catharsis of learning that he was loved. Can't say I was emotionally enveloped into this though, which is a shame but it was nice regardless.
