WARNING IF YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT NARUTO'S PARENTAL BACKGROUND OR HAVE NOT FIGURED OUT WHO HIS FATHER WAS (it isn't hard to deduce at all, really) THEN YOU MAY NOT WANT TO READ THIS BLOG ENTRY. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
So the raw scans for Naruto chapter 430 have hit the net. Naruto is sporting a sweet jacket that is very similar to the one Minato, the fourth Hokage, wore. Minato was the baddest, most powerful shinobi that ever emerged from Konoha, and since Naruto is his son and he admire's the 4th so much, it's only natural that he'd don a jacket that's similar to the greatest ninja that ever lived. I've always hoped that some day Naruto would wear the jacket, or at least something that's close to it. I guess Kishimoto thought that Naruto should wear it someday as well. Gotta say, Naruto looks like one bad mofo in it.
If you're a bit behind on what's going on in the current Naruto chapters, here's the jist of it: Pein has come to Konoha looking for Naruto and left the leaf village a mere shell of it's former self. God only knows that the body count is and in chapter 429, Pein rocked the village with a huge explosion. Naruo has been training in the land of the toads (he's actually surpassed Jiraiya with his sage training) and they've recieved word (somewhat) that something is wrong in Konoha. So they warp back to the village, Naruto takes a look around and he is not happy. He takes out of the the Peins that attacks Tsunade instantly, no struggle whatsoever. A major fight is about to go down, folks.
Did I mention how awesome Naruto looks in that jacket? I gotta get me one of those.
