Kakashi's Resolve

Naruto ShippudenSeason 15

After hearing Obito and Madara’s discussion, a Naruto’s clone angrily moves to attack them with a Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball. Madara, however, blocks the attack and defeats the clone. Then, he manages to capture the Eight and the Nine-Tails. Kakashi uses this opportunity to question his old friend about what happened to him and Obito remember about when he attacked Konoha and confronted by his former sensei, also making him have a flashback of his first encounter with his team and then states that he no longer cared about this world. Meanwhile, Naruto declares to Madara that he was Fourth Hokage’s son and would not be overpowered by him. Madara then creates an enormous wood dragon, which he notes had been used by Hashirama Senju in the past to bind the Nine-Tails. This forces Naruto to use Tailed Beast Mode to fight it. Kakashi continues to ask Obito why he chose to follow someone like Madara, but the Uchiha notes that he had nothing left to say to him and that this is their final fight. Continuing their battle, Obito leaves an attack with many shuriken, but is stopped by Kakashi’s wall of earth. As Obito slips through the wall, Kakashi continues to ask him if the reason was related to Rin, to which Obito sharply retorts telling “this scum” to shut up. Obito then warps Kakashi to the other dimension, but Kakashi soon returns with the same technique. In the meantime, the Wood Dragon begins absorbing Kurama’s chakra, causing Naruto on the verge of breakdown. The legendary Uchiha also uses Wood Release to bind Killer B and Might Guy, then begins to activate his Susanoo to finish things up on the battlefield. Disregarding this, Naruto notes that the Uchiha’s ideals annoyed him and, by creating a shadow clone, he is able to stop both Obito’s shuriken and Madara’s Susanoo Sword from killing Kakashi, Guy and Gy?ki respectively. Hearing Naruto’s words that he would protect his friends, Kakashi and Guy both spring into action with the former using Lightning Cutter to destroy Obito’s other shuriken and Guy using Daytime Tiger to attack Madara. Turning to his former comrade, Kakashi tells Obito that he still remembered what he had taught him in the past and what he could still do now, is protect Naruto, which awakens Guy. Seeing this, Gy?ki notes that all Konoha-nin liked to act tough before taking advantage of the loosened grip of its wooden restraints, warning Naruto that the Wood Release binding could suppress a tailed beasts power. Sometime later, Obito uses his wood technique in an attempt to restrain Naruto while he attacks Kakashi, but Naruto intercepts him with a powerful head-butt, which sends him reeling. Gy?ki then decides to attack the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path before the Ten-Tails could revive when noticing the crack of barrier. Naruto then declares that he can see Obito’s suffering face, though Obito counters by saying it is Kakashi who is truly suffering. As Naruto notes that he had to do something for Kakashi, who was worn out, Kurama switches places with Naruto, and throws the Copy Ninja at Obito, who warps him away, leaving a shocked Naruto. With no time to linger over this occurrence as Obito attacks, using Kamui to avoid Naruto’s attack; he surprisingly starts to cough up blood. Kurama then reveals that Kakashi was attacking Obito from the other dimension and that it had given the shinobi some of its chakra when touching his hand. As Kakashi returns to the real world thanking Kurama, Naruto and Killer B both combine their massive sphere, firing Demonic Statue far way. After the explosion, they note that the statue’s chakra vanishes, causing them to question whether this is the end. However, when the smoke clears, the revived Ten-Tails appears, prompting Obito and Madara to begin their plan.
