Jokey Boy wasn't quite the jutsu I hoped it would be. Oh well.

I was quite disappointed with this chapter. Jokey was a joke of a jutsu. And the entire chapter was a let down. All of the action could have been shrunk down to 4-5 panels IMO, and yet, the fight never came to an end. Now we have to wait another week... :FP:

He controlled the gold dust by mixing it with his sand, much like he can use sand to support a person. I thought it was a fairly good jutsu, I mean, he's taking on two kage plus a shinobi army, so I don't think his jutsu was lackluster, he just had some good opposition. An exploding clone that can reform and explode any number of times is pretty beast, it even outdoes Deidara who is a blast element user. But I still wanted more from this chap as well, and I still want to know who is kabuto's trump card!! Ive been wanting to hear who it is since he first threatened Madara with him/her :(

Man, combining Jokey Boy with the mirage technique would make the 2nd Mizukage even more terrifying on the battle field. Win!

Excellent fight from the Nidaime Mizukage and Gaara.

Lot of good can come from elaboration and clever use of tricks. And it didn't even end too soon either.


Liked that Gaara rose up and overcame Nidaime Mizukage without outside intervention. ^__^


Chapter gets a 10.

Well, the childlike appearance of the clone explains the "Jokey Boy" <-> "Jooki Booi" pun, showing that it was indeed Kishi just being clever with his naming again. The jutsu wasn't what I thought it would be, but it was quite formidable. I like that Gaara thought outside of the box by incorporating the gold in such a manner.

I'm surprised that Muu had nothing in his kage arsenal to deal with the situation then again even with a thousand jutsu a ninja can be caught off guard. It's never a dull chapter when humor and science is brought into play. Overall I liked this encounter especially since Gaara and Ooniki succeeded on their own. The panel with Naruto really had me worried.

Strange how both the jutsu and the chapter were both underwhelming and kinda cool at the same time.
