Naruto (vol. 49) by Masashi Kishimoto

Naruto, Vol. 49: The Gokage Summit Commences!! - Masashi Kishimoto

Again, yay, the story is moving forward (at a crawl, but whatever). I was glad that Danzo's tricks didn't work, because, ugh, I really dislike him. However, the Kage meeting was pretty dull. Also, this is the volume when it struck me that I don't like Sasuke anymore. Naruto's blind defense of him no longer moves me. To my mind, Sasuke's last chance to reverse his path was when Itachi told him why he massacred the entire Uchiha clan. He's gone from being a character who I could feel sympathy for and who I believed could be saved to...nothing. He's just a big, boring blob of ice cold hatred that serves no purpose other than to be Naruto's tragic enemy.
