491: Jinchuriki Confinement!!
Aiming to control the Kyubi!!
Scroll Frog: Here! Open your mouth wider!!
Naruto with tears streaming down his face: Why from the mouth…this is gross~
Scroll Frog: Do you want to store this or not!?
Fukusaku kicks the scroll frog into Naruto’s mouth.
Fukusaku: OK, it’s in! From here you should be heading back to Konoha!
Naruto: I should start searching for the octopus huh…where in the world is this octopus? Some sort of hint would have been nice.
Prophet Frog: I can’t say for sure but, there is a solitary island…a paradise of living things people can’t approach…seems like a fun resort I could live at.
Naruto imagines a paradise of sorts.
Prophet Frog: There the octopus should assist you…anyhow, that’s some sort of guidance yeah.
Fukusaku: Then we’ll return with that.
Naruto returns inside Ichiraku Ramen.
2 Ninja eating there are surprised.
Naruto: Ah!…I’m back…
Ichiraku’s Old Man: Where were you!? You quickly disappeared I thought, and now you’ve suddenly appeared again!
Naruto: I guess so.
Ninja A: Ooh! Naruto huh!
Ninja B: I didn’t think I would meet you in a place like this! Please, can I have your autograph! I was wondering if you could write it out to my kid. He’s your fan.
Ninja A: Konoha’s Hero. The boy who made a miracle happen. Uzumaki Naruto! Please write one for me too!
Ninja A: …what’s wrong? Don’t want to do it?
Naruto: No… I guess I’m just not used to this…autographing for one.
Ichiraku’s Old Man: (…Only recently has he become this boy of miracles…but only until recently was it the opposite…it’s crazy to think)
Ichiraku’s Old Man: Before you start signing, what can I get started for you?
Ninja A: Ah…A…
Naruto: Finally, time to eat!
3 days following the Raikage’s summons.
Assembly in the lightning country.
Tsuchikage and unknown escort.
Hokage is with Shikaku.
Mifune is with that Hage guy.
Mizukage is with Ao.
Kazekage is with Temari.
Raikage is with his secretary.
Raikage: That was fast everyone…
Kazekage: This is an urgent issue after all.
Tsuchikage: But Tsunade-dono…everything is well with you? You’ve taken the opportunity to make yourself out to be young again, you oldie.
Tsunade: I should say the same for you Twin Scales gramps!!
Mizukage: Now that this Danzou matter has been set aside, I’m relieved you’ve returned as Hokage Tsunade-sama.
Mifune: Greetings can be done after. I apologize, but we need to begin the meeting immediately.
Mifune: Firtly, information concerning the jinchuriki of the Hachibi and the Kyubi…as well as the enemy’s stronghold and war power.
Tsunade: One of ours has seem to located what looks to be the enemy’s stronghold. However this could be a trap…we have no choice but to gather more information.
Raikage: Myself as well. I’ve formed a scouting party to gather information on that location. We need to quickly check with each nation’s information.
Mizukage: In that case, let’s put structure a group to unify all this information together.
Tsuchikage: That’s a good idea! So…where are we hiding the jinchuriki?
Raikage: What is it!?
Tsunade: Naruto and Bee are great strengths for us!! What would we have them do in concealment!??
Tsuchikage: I also thought the same but, those two are what this war is revolving around. We’ve considered letting them head out with our forces, but it’s been decided at the previous meeting.
Tsunade: The enemy is Uchiha Madara! We can’t spare any potential is manpower. There won’t be a second chance at victory if we mess up now. We should combine all our military strength—
Kazekage: This is a war about protecting those two. We can’t just have it that way on the basis of what the Hokage wants. It’s majority rules.
Tsunade: This youngster! Like Naruto.
Kazekage: I know what you’re thinking concerning Naruto… but it would be rash to do this just for the purpose of being friends…so that’s why it is how it is.
Mifune: Before it even becomes a problem of war potential…the five kages must be on the same page for victory to even be a possibility.
Shikaku: I agree with them.
Tsuchikage: Your horrid mouth is in good health too…proof you’ve gotten better.
Raikage: The place where we hide the Hachibi and Kyubi needs to be decided. There’s no objection, right, Hokage?
Tsunade: I understand…let’s carry on!
Raikage:Hm…we are thinking of a hiding place….the best place. It is only appropriate that it be in the Hidden Cloud, considering it is a place untouched by Akatsuki. It’s an island where Bee and I have trained.
Naruto and Yamato on a boat.
Yamato: Hm, no octopus…
Naruto: This is a top secret mission from the prophet sage to go to this solitary island of paradise. As the prophecy states.
Yamato: (Naruto…it seems he hasn’t noticed yet.)
Cloud Ninja A: Please make preparations as we are approaching shore.
Konoha Ninja: Oo, I can see the island!
Naruto: It’s really here!
They arrive at the island.
There’s only stone, bone, and dead things…
Cloud Ninja A: It’s like Konoha’s Forest of Death…this is a little more extreme but safe…there’s nothing else alive here…except for one…
Yamato: Except for one?
Naruto: What about this is paradise!! That idiot sage!!
Cloud Ninja A: The thing that lives on this beach…
Naruto: ! A!! An octopus tentacle!! The octopus!! Please guide me!
Yamato: Naruto…this is…
It’s a squid!!
Cloud Ninja: It’s here!! I was trying to say if you should be aware of this, but it’s here now-!
Yamato, Konoha Ninja: What!!!
Naruto: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…
Yamato: Even without counting the tentacles you should be able to tell by just looking, Naruto!
Naruto: But just to make sure…squid have 10, and octopus has 8…
The squid grabs Naruto.
The Hachibi seizes the squid.
Bee: Squid are beneath me, they are below me!!
Ninja: What’s this- another ones here and it’s talking-!!
Ninja: It’s nothing!
Naruto: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8…it’s an octopus!! This time it’s an octopus!!
Cloud Ninja: Killer Bee-sama!!
Yamato: Killer Bee? Then..this…
Bee: You’re late brat!!
Encounter! The start of sequester with the Hachibi!!
STATUS: CONFIRMED (INCOMPLETE)
照れるナルト 一楽の親父さんも ナルトの事を認める
The seal-key frog returns Naruto to Konoha.
When he returns to Ichiraku Ramen, some ninja’s son asks him for his autograph, since he’s a fan of his.
Naruto feels awkward. The old man of Ichiraku acknowledges Naruto too.
Tsunade is not pleased with the war of protecting Bee and Naruto, as decided at the Gokage Summit, and is furious at the other kage.
But the Tsuchikage and the Kazekage calm her down telling her that she has to understand that it was decided by a majority.
Then they hide Naruto and Bee in what looks like a demon’s island in the Lightning Country.
Naruto anticipated a paradise. When he sees the isle, he becomes dejected.
A giant squid attacks Naruto and Yamato, who’s in a boat,
but Bee’s bijuu form repels it.
Naruto goes “Oh, that’s the squid who’s gonna be teaching me?”
Bee goes “Well ain’t'cha late”

In the meantime, check out this well-written Naruto Manga 491 Prediction by Rabbit9:

491: Preparations for War!
Scene is Tsunade’s office.
Tsunade is stuffing her face.
Messanger-nin: Hokage-sama! Message from Kumogakure, the meeting of the joint army is in three days!
Tsunade: Fee fays!
Shizune (face palms): Tsunade-sama, don’t talk with your mouth full!
Tsunade: That Raikage, always rushing into things. Right, get me Kakashi!
Shizune: But, Tsunade-sama
Kakashi: Well, its such a relief I don’t have to be Hokage.
Tsunade: Sorry Kakashi, but you have no time to celebrate. I’m officially appointing you the new leader of Root. I want you, Sai, and Tenzo to reorganize the group and integrate them with the Hokage’s ANBU in preparation for war.
Kakashi (looking sullen) : Um, wouldn’t that be more suitable for the ANBU leader?
Tsunade: The Anbu leader is away on a mission. We don’t have time to wait and I think despite who your teachers were, ROOT will respect you.
Kakashi: Fine, but this will take all my time, I’m leaving Naruto to you.
Tsunade: Ur right, I forgot. Send for Shikamaru instead.
Shizune: You heard the Hokage!
Messanger-nin: R- right! (vanishes)
Scene change to Madara’s cave. We can see the Gedo Maza
Kabuto: I see, so that’s your plan.
Tobi: Once Kisame’s done, we’ll use your, ah, “friends” to extract the eight-tails.
Kabuto: And while the extraction goes on Sasuke will capture the Nine-tails?
Zetsu appears from the ground, he is complete again (Zuzuzu).
Zetsu Dark: Are you sure Sasuke can handle Naruto?
Zetsu Light: You’ve already underestimated him once. Not to mention Sasuke’s success rate.
Tobi: I do not think Sasuke will fail this time. He did kill Danzo.
Kabuto: So Danzo’s dead, Sasuke has improved…
Zetsu Light: So what’s with snake dick?
Zetsu Dark: Would you watch your mouth? However he has a point Tobi.
Tobi: Kabuto has demonstrated that his power would be useful in our struggle.
Zetsu Light: But can we trust him?
Zetsu Dark: That reminds me, some Konoha-nin are near, apparently they followed a trail of corpses…
Tobi: Kabuto, would you initiate our partnership? Take out the trash.
Kabuto: I never agreed to take orders…but one of them interests me. She has been following me for some time. You see I needed some witnesses in case you declined my offer, but now.. (eyes turn really evil) THEY ARE USELESS! (laughs and slithers away).
Tobi: Zetsu, tell me about Kisame.
Zetsu Dark: He successfully infiltrated the cloud village.
Zetsu Light: Only with my help!
Tobi: Good, send a message to him, he is to act as quickly as possible!
Zetsu Light: Wait I thought you wanted him to act slowly and carefully.
Tobi: I changed my mind, Naruto is still incomplete. I want to reduce the chance of them meeting. If Naruto became a complete Jinchuriki, even Sasuke would have trouble.
Zetsu Dark: Good point, oh and one more thing..
Scene change to Tsunade
Shikamaru walks in.
Tsunade: Shikamaru, I hope you’re prepared!
Shikamaru: Prepared? For what? (thinking) Something really troublesome is about to happen.
Tsunade: I have here two lists: one of our Ninja squads and one of every foreign squad. I want you to match up the squads. One squad from each village, into groups of 20 ninja. That’s an order from your Hokage!
Shikamaru: Um, I’m not familiar with most of these foreign squads.
Tsunade: I’ve already thought of that. I’ve selected a foreign kunoichi to work with you. She’s familiar with many foreign squads.
The door opens. We see a familiar form in shadow. (I’ll give you three guesses)
Scene change to Naruto.
Naruto takes his hand of the scroll.
Naruto (thinking) : I hope this was the right…
Gerotama goes down Naruto’s throat.
Naruto (coughing) : What was that?
Fukasaku: Don’t worry, Gero is a special toad which lives inside the belly of the user, fer extra protection.
Naruto: Right, I just hope when I summon him he comes out the same way and not out my…
Shima: Naruto! There’s a lady present!
Naruto (thinking) : Some lady..
Fukasaku: Ma! Send him home, he needs to be with his village as they prepare for war.
Naruto: Wait, I thought you would train me.
Fukasaku: Na! You’re on your own with the Kyuubi. But we’ll look for an Octopus for ya!
Shima: If you ever want to eat again, let me know!
Naruto (grossed out) poofs away.
Elder Sage Toad: I think I forgot something.
Fukasaku: Not again.
Elder Sage Toad: Who was that again?
Shima: Uzumaki Naruto you old fart!
Elder Sage: Uzumaki…
Scene change to Naruto in Konoha.
Naruto is back in front of Ichiraku’s.
Naruto (thinking) : I really don’t wanna eat Granny Toad’s cooking again.
Teuchi: Hey, Naruto! Where did you go?
Naruto: Ramen! Yes, huh arrgh. (Naruto collapses)
Naruto is in his mind.
Naruto: What.. why am I here?
Kyuubi: So the time has come…
Naruto turns to face Kyuubi. Gerotama is also there.
Gerotama: This is not how its supposed to happen.
Naruto: Don’t worry Gero, I’m not going to let him have his way anymore.
Kyuubi (laughing hysterically): Ha, ha, ha, ha. Who do you think you are?
Naruto: Uzumaki Naruto, the Sage of Mount Myobokuzan! (thinking) That sounded so cool!
Kyuubi: Really? Is that all? What about “Son of the Fourth Hokage” or “Jinchuriki of the Kyuubi”? Or…
Naruto: Or? What do you mean or?
Kyuubi: You don’t know who you really are do you? I called you to make a deal. I’ll tell you a few secrets about you, and if you still want to have control of my power, I’ll give it to you. I’ll completely suppress my will. (thinking) But I don’t think you’ll want to.
Gero: What is he… Naruto think about this!
Naruto: I don’t really understand where you’re going with this but I really need your power. Its a deal!
What will the Kyuubi tell Naruto? How will Anko do against Kabuto?
