Here Again

Here Again” (ここでまた, Koko de mata, Viz: Here Once Again) is chapter 693 of the original Naruto manga.


Naruto beseeches Sasuke to release the tailed beasts who had only just acquired their freedom. Despite assuring him that they would no longer be used as tools of war, Sasuke callously notes that after he uses them to end the Infinite Tsukuyomi, he plans to eliminate all traces of the tailed beasts, which included Naruto who now hosted portions of their chakra. Kakashi tries to go after Sasuke as he departs, but is still suffering the effects of using the Sharingan.

A tearful Sakura tries one last time to persuade Sasuke into coming back to the village, but she is then silenced by genjutsu. As Kakashi’s words fall on deaf ears once more, Naruto tells Kakashi of the promise he made long ago to Sakura before leaving in pursuit. Hagoromo, staying behind with Kakashi and the unconscious Sakura, tells Kakashi about his sons Indra and Asura Ōtsutsuki, and how he regretted his actions in unintentionally causing the ill-fated events of today. Meanwhile, Naruto and Sasuke arrive at the Valley of the End. Naruto tells Sasuke that he will never be the Hokage; reiterating what Itachi told him before. Sasuke retorts that he already knows that, but states that because he wishes to ignite a revolution, his version of the Hokage will be different from Naruto’s view. With that Sasuke declares that he will teach him his meaning on what a “Hokage” is.


  • A Naruto: Colour Edition version of this chapter was included with the digital release of Weekly Shōnen Jump 2014 #44.
