Naruto: Shippuden

Recommended Posts

Sakura: I've come to kill you, Sasuke.

Sasuke: If I were capable of laughter, I'd be on the ground in tears.

Sakura: TAKE ME SERIOUSLY!!!!!

Sasuke: Look, I'm sure you have leveled up since I knocked you unconscious while leaving the village. But look at me. I have learned of types of Sharingan I never even knew about. I can summon a giant purple bogeyman. Oh, and I killed the Hokage.

Sakura: Danzo? He more or less elected himself.

Sasuke: Whatever. I killed Danzo, and he had, like, fifteen of my clan's eyes embedded in his arm. And you're coming at me?!?

Sakura: You think this is easy for me?!? I had to sleep-bomb three friends to get to you! I know you're a big deal, but I've grown beyond the girl with the obvious crush and maniacal black-and-white . . . wait, why am I talking to empty space?

Sasuke: (from behind Sakura) Are you familiar with "deja vu"?

Sakura: Oh, come on!!!!!

Kinda getting sick of the unrelenting flashbacks when Naruto and Sasuke clash. When I saw that the guys behind Honest Trailers went into anime and covered the series, they basically said that same thing most of do: "Naruto wants to bring Sasuke home, Sasuke really doesn't want that." Also, Sasuke is still the biggest jerk. And now, I have to ask a question for anybody who's gotten into Boruto.

Spoiler

Is it true that Sasuke and Sakura wind up having a daughter, and Sasuke is basically an absent father? At some point, you have to wonder if Sakura is that fucked in the head to keep liking him that much. He basically turned his back on his village to enact vengeance, and went through what I'm assuming is a massive killspree. And you made a kid with him?!? Oy.

Adding Sakura to missions as a combatant always makes everything better. Except for the part where she fails to take out Sasuke because she doesn't know how to lie convincingly, and the part where she accidentally gets Naruto poisoned, that is. I guess rescuing the Kazekage was her one shining moment of competence.

If I were running the Leaf, I'd make her work in the hospital for the rest of her life and hire Karin to go out on missions instead.

Naruto talking about "exchanging fists" with Sasuke sent my mind to a bad place.

Checking in to see if anybody is keeping up . . . especially since Toonami is moving the show to 10 p.m., followed by Boruto.

Last episode was pretty funny . . . Kakashi gets ready to become Hokage, and Guy challenges him to a final manly race. Given the tone from the anime, it was refreshing. Also, apparently one dude gets to carve portraits on Hokage Rock. Huge comedy of errors . . . he's ready to start with Danzo, but Kakashi is named Hokage. At the end of the episode, he's ready to start . . . only to hear that Tsunade has miraculously awakened. That would be annoying.

Please tell me one of you sees Hokage Rock and thinks "Mt. Ninjmore."

Re. Boruto, until it gets its own thread/forum

If only the hokage had some way of tackling all that paperwork, some sort of, oh, I don't know, some sort of force multiplier, as in many hands make light work as the saying goes.

Nah, nevermind. That's just crazy-talk.

That's exactly what I was thinking during that scene.

 

Naruto: I watched the episode, but can barely remember what happened. Toads and exposition and Naruto eating icky things accidentally. The important thing is that they gave the knucklehead the sealing key for the nine-tails. Because he's mature and responsible and stuff...supposedly.

I think that the Hokage’s duty is to protect the Hidden Leaf Village and all who live there. Given how much it looks to have evolved after Pain blew it up, that’s one hell of a job. However, there’s probably an unwritten rule that a Hokage cannot use ninjutsu or genjutsu to breeze through paperwork. This is why Shikamaru never wanted the job. Hes good with his job and kid.

Somehow I don't think the Leaf ninja are big on unwritten rules., or the written ones for that matter.

In this episode: Naruto goes fishing. It's only slightly more exciting than it sounds. Naruto makes an excellent fishing lure, what with his neon orange jumpsuit and all. Also, Gai is prone to seasickness.

This week: pirates! Seriously, when does Naruto meet B?

I did laugh at seeing the pirates sail towards the village. "Wait . . . are those pirate ships?!?" "YOU'RE IN THE WRONG ANIME! YOU ARE IN THE WRONG ANIME!!! YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A SHIP WITH A SKULL-AND-CROSSBONES WEARING A STRAW HAT!!! THEY'RE THAT WAY!!!!!"

Another filler episode, this time with what looked like old school animation, wherein a big fetus/Mothra pupa transforms into a Cthulhu/Godzilla hybrid which then transforms into a Cthulhu/Godzilla/Rhodan hybrid. And Gai-sensei still hasn't completely emptied his stomach on the high seas.

The feather dance in the nest definitely has a place in a "Gai's most embarrassing moments" video.

Naruto & friends sure have been meeting a lot of ghosts lately.

Finally caught up on this show (I was 25 behind at one point!).  Hopefully in time for filler to wrap up soon. 

I was waiting for the mushroom castaways to summon something and eat it, but I guess Naruto was smarter than that.

Okay, it appears all things Naruto has been crunched into a single thread.  So I guess this is the place to talk Boruto . . . at least unless it warrants its own forum or thread. Anyway, marathon launches tomorrow night on Toonami.

Naruto's clones rebel. Too bad it was just a dream.

And that was one fucked-up dream. Clones with personalities is weird. One of them representing Naruto's feminine side through Sexy no Jutsu? Weirder. Might Guy in a Speedo? WOW.

Agreed.

Yet another variation on pirates trying to take down the Leaf ship with cunning tricks. It's amazing how many of the coastal and island villages turn out to be pirate villages.

Still. So. Much. Fucking. FILLER.

Basically, the latest episode had most of the kids trying to get a break from the impending war. Also Tsunade, who has a conference with the feudal lords, then decides to throw her sobriety out of a window and get shitfaced. Also, we got Hinata getting trained by Neiji during the timeskip, and how she's matured as a fighter. It's weird to see her mousy when she's more open in Boruto. She's not a ballbuster like Chi Chi, but she's more developed there. I wonder if she tells her kids how.many ttrees she hid behind while watching her future husband train. Or eat. Or anything, really.

I liked the bit with Tenten and the ship. "CAPSULE CORP NO JUTSU!!!!"

General question: should Boruto stuff be brought up here, in terms of how characters evolve from Shippuden to there?

The latest episode in a nutshell:

Konahamaru: I wanna fight for my village on the front lines!

Everyone Else: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??!??

So much anger towards the little squirt. I mean, he's come a long way from the second episode, but he needs a lot of people (including a really mad Tsunade) to tell him that he can make a difference at home. Also, he gets smacked around by Temari. At least she didn't try to break his back like she did with TenTen at the Chunin Exams.

ETA: Right now Konahamaru has two jutsu: the Rasengan and his uncle's ash-belching. The kid is gonna be dead from lung cancer before he turns 30.

How? Much? More? Filler?!?

Latest bit was basically “How Shino Got His Groove Back.” This is a tough sell, since he’s probably the least interesting young ninja of the main bunch. I mean, it’s either him or Tenten. And I’m still convinced his eye sockets are filled with insects. That would explain why we don’t see those here and in Boruto. There, he’s got a thing over his eyes where I wonder how the people around him don’t crave toast all of the time.

A Tenten-intensive (intentensive?) flashback episode showing how she became an expert at using tools. No, not like that! I mean ninja tools. In other words, filler.
