8 from me.

It's starting to get interesting. The new mission is about to begin. And Sai's hiding something. I don't trust him (has he the mission to assassinate Naruto?).

The chapter continued to build up the powerful suspense and suspicion. Another ANBU root member (Sai's sempai) showed up, delivering a letter to Sai. Seems Sai has another mission to carry out Danzou's will to "protect" Konoha. Interesting, I wonder if it has anything to do with Naruto? =D

Another thing I found interesting was the explanation of the ANBU root name. Cool to see some background on Sai. He lives in Konoha and has at least one picture of himself from his childhood. I guess we'll be getting more background on Sai as the arc progresses.

Sakura also compared Sai to Sasuke in looks. It was funny to see Naruto disagree with her. Sort of like we do here on the forums. Heh.

Pretty interesting chapter, the tension building-up in Tsunade's conversation with Danzou was great.

The meetings and birthdays of the Root members must be the wildest, craziest, funniest gatherings ever :rolleyes: I wonder if they have a song to go with the lyrics of their little motto...

Sai is definately not getting christmas cards from Sakura and Naruto.

It was funny how Naruto remembers Sasuke but at the same time can't put him above himself in the "cool" deparment.

Very good chapter, it gets an 8.

isnt it kind of obvious that Sasuke is going to turn up at the secret spy meeting in the grass country and kill the spy though?

Is it healthy that somehow I expect him (if he shows up) to brutally murder Sai?

Things are building nicely here I must say. Sai is still a big question mark, which is a good thing. It also now seems that the happy nice faction in Konoha is not the entire village as it has appeared from previous exposure, but that a number of people have a harsher, darker view. That's some pretty good dymnamics.

I wonder what Danzou wants, it can't be to start a war now, the Leaf is in no position to do so, so it must be something else. Perhaps he wants Sai to deliver Naruto to the Akatsuki and thereby rope the organization into a new Konoha?

What was the deal with cat, was some one using it to spy or just a stupid cat.

Sai really like his art. That theme song is catchy.. Is it me or does Sai seem to resent that Sempai person, especially when he made fun of Sai's picture book (probably his family or something).

Following the Naruto psychological tradition, Sai holds a childhood trauma that seems to be exploited by Danzou :P

I wonder if the sample of Sai's background means he is going to join Hayate, the 3rd, Sasori, Zabuza and Haku in the afterlife soon ...or if he'll be around for a long time.

Do they or do they not go to the Hidden Grass and do they have any plans to go there?

At the end of the chapter, they leave Konoha for Hidden Grass. As for a plan:

Nihongaeri
 
Page 3

Frame 2, Yamato:
これより我々四名は天地橋を目指し大蛇丸の組織に潜入している暁のスパイを拘束し連れ帰る。
The four of us will first head for Tenchikyou... And there we will find the "Akatsuki" spy who has infiltrated Orochimaru's organization, capture him and bring him back to the village.

Frame 3, Yamato:
大蛇丸とうちはサスケの情報が手に入るチャンスだ。
This is a chance for us to acquire information on both Orochimaru and Uchiha Sasuke.

Frame 4, Yamato:
大蛇丸暗殺とサスケ奪取の両方の作戦を立案できる貴重な情報源を入手することになる。
This mission will allow us to gain a source of information useful in planning for both Orochimaru's assassination and Sasuke's retrieval.

Frame 5, Yamato:
心してかかるように!
So conduct yourself with the utmost responsibility!

yep. they showed the hints of a 'flashback card'. sai will most likely either

a) have a flashback in midst of battle, have naruto fix him up good, then die saving someone, and die smiling
B) have a flashback in midst of battle, have naruto fix him up good, then die saving someone, and die holding the others off
c) have a flashback in midst of battle, have naruto fix him up good, then go back to confront danzou.

Sakura questioning Sai's looks just makes me want to lean further into the possibility of Uchiha. And that picture he's holding. Sasuke, maybe, but more likely a younger version of himself. And the cloths the kid in the picture is wearing looks like what Lil' Sasuke wore without the collar. Just some observations.

I read an interesting observation about Yamato over at NarutoFan:

- His ANBU mask is cat-like in appearance (284, pg. 15)
- He has cat-like claws at the end of his gloves (284, pg. 15)
- A cat jumps out of a tree, disrupting Sai's conversation (285, pg. 10)

Now is it coincidence that there's a recent emphasis on cats in these past two chapters? Kakashi is represented by dogs, and Yamato is represented by cats. It's possible we'll get a significantly contrasted character from Kakashi as leader of Team 7.

Also (and more to the point), about the cat jumping from the tree, was it Yamato's doing or mere coincidence? Afterall, Tsunade did ask Yamato to keep an eye on Sai.

Grain of salt, but an interesting observation nonetheless.

Look at his fingers... Either he has some serious fingernails, or they're cat claws.
