What a good chapter. I was kinda mad I actually read these comments before reading it but it's okay now. The death of a main/important character means that the series will be ending or will have a reincarnation. I really liked when he said "Because I was a genius,"; I love poetic justice. I did, however, have some complaints.
The Wood Jutsu was probably the most retarded Jutsu I've ever seen. It was literally a hand shooting out toothpicks... Genma could've done that. Mokuton just seems overplayed now.
The bird at the end got me mad. I'm aware it symbolizes the end/release of the "caged bird" but there was no way there were any animals left during the war. During times of catastrophic proportions, animals instinctively run away. I'm probably looking to much into it though.
Neji's death did assure one thing; Nazi's were not the bad guys.
