Naruto 498

[chapter link]

Good punchline from Naruto’s mom. Good punch, too.

Naruto realizing who she is and hugging her is a pretty touching moment. Well done.

“Just thinking how glad I am to see my mom’s a babe!” Uh… Naruto…

On the other hand, “You definitely take after me!” is a great line.

Her chakra being special will surely come into play shortly.

The flashback scene is sweet, but it’s also thought-provoking. It makes me consider the possibilities of the Naruto story without Sasuke. Minato certainly seemed to do well for himself without a pouting, unconvincing rival-turned-villain that taints what plot he touches.

Excellent last page.

Final Flash: Very nice chapter. One of the few instances I’ve found myself accepting a break in intense action.
