Meanwhile, Shikaku uses the opportunity to develop a strategy involving the Shinobi Forces which he eventually relays with the help of Inochi and they are able to immobilize the Ten-Tails inside a pit of concrete.
Finally as the Shinobi Alliance charges at Madara and Obito, the Ten-Tails begins undergoing a metamorphosis.
But when Butsuma and Tobirama arrive at the same time as Madara's brother Izuna and their father Tajima and the confrontation leads to Izuna almost being killed, Madara accepts the reality they live in and agrees to continue fighting against the Senju.
Convincing Naruto to let him control his body for a bit, Kurama reinvigorates Kakashi with a chakra boost and tricked Obito into warping the copy ninja into the other dimension so he can lose his advantage through Kamui.
Afterwards, as Gyuki attempts to break through the Gedo Statue's barrier, Naruto turns his attention to the Gedo Statue as he and Killer Bee use two Tailed Beast Bombs in hopes to destroy the statue before its regeneration into the Ten-Tails is complete.
Sasuke wastes no time in getting Hiruzen to confirm the truth about Itachi and follows up by questioning Tobirama on the Uchiha clan, where the latter explains that the power of the Sharingan manifests when a clan member experiences deep emotional trauma, which in turn gives rise to hatred.
Afterwards Orochimaru tells the Hokages of the ongoing war and when Tobirama tries to leave, Orochimaru threatens to use them to attack the Leaf Village if they fail to appease Sasuke's questions.
The episodes for the seventeenth season of the anime series Naruto: Shippuden are based on Part II for Masashi Kishimoto's manga series.
