Did they seriously think they could stop Naruto from leaving the island? They’re underestimating him.
This chapter leads us to the moment where Naruto leaves to join the war.
I’ve been reading around and some people believe that it’s stupid for Naruto to join the war when the war is being fought to protect him. He’s just blindly heading out without any regards to the possible consequences.
I believe that it’s a lot better than to do nothing and sit around being protected. He plans to be the Hokage one day and yet he’s going to sit on his ass while doing nothing when his nation and friends are fighting. I can only imagine the feeling of being protected and not doing the protecting. It makes him feel as if he’s a burden and that’s the last thing he would want to be. Besides, he wants peace and happiness for anyone; if he wants it, he’s going to have to fight for it. Nothing will be accomplished if he spent the entire time on the island.
I find it more assuring to have Naruto fight on the battlefield because of his abilities. He’s so reliable now. There’s a possibility that Madara may win the war so it’s better to play all the cards than to regret not playing the trump card when they end up losing the war.
I think that Naruto is justified in wanting to take part in the war and it’s better to have someone of his caliber out on the field.
