[Chapter 500] is out. Discuss the series and/or chapter and stay on topic. If the thread loses its way or becomes a spam or troll hangout, it'll get locked again. Try to keep things constructive; if you have nothing good to say, then shut up.
Might as well kick things off myself. The whole pregnancy angle seemed a little bit unnecessary, given Madara can extract the fox using other methods, but I guess it works out with Naruto having just been born. I suppose it comes down to whether or not Kushina survives the extraction process, which from my understanding shouldn't be possible, or if she dies before the fox is sealed into Naruto. If she survives, I guess it works as a loophole for hosts to survive the so that her chakra can be sealed with the fox into Naruto. The chapter had an impressive amount of dialog... probably why Kishi had to take a break.
Alright. Have at it.
