Kaneda watched from his peeking eyes, as his body seemed to float amongst the active members participating in the fight. He couldnt do very much with the state he is in.
Up in the air was a whole new experience; The Ten-Tailed Gatoa was skilled enough with the art of gravity manipulation, that he was able to lift everybody off of the ground. It wasnt that they could not move... well, if anything, everybody seemed to "swim" through mid air. But it did not offer the speed they required to evade or dodge attacks normally by foot on a surface.
Before and during Karela's attack, Asuka was enraged to see one of her friends seemingly "die" from the hands of Gatoa. Takeda began to transform from his reaction.
"You... you monster!"

Kaneda eyed him worryingly. "Bite into me! For once, move on from your concepts of Morality. Gatoa is going to destroy everything you will ever love!"
Kaneda eyed weakingly at his arm, then back at Naruto. "In many situations like this, a true shinobi will go out of his way to help his comrades; no matter what the cost. How else do you think Kakashi-sensai got his Sharingan? From a team-mate whom fought during the Third Shinobi War, and died protecting the lives of future generations."
Naruto's glowing arm was nearing the edge of Kaneda's teeth. "Let me help you, so that you may help me help others!" Kaneda sunk his fangs into Naruto's arm and began consuming...
