    C&C - Naruto (Uncut) - "The Sharingan Revived: Dragon Flame Jutsu!" [6/22]

    So yeah, this episode is the polar opposite of the last one. The animators basically spend the whole time kicking serious ass. Enjoy.

    Both the OP and the ED, along with all past and future Naruto OPs and EDs, can be downloaded in high quality from the Toonami Digital Arsenal.



    Last time on Naruto:

    Spoiler:
    Despite Naruto's timely appearance, Sasuke offers the grass Ninja the scroll in exchange for their lives. Sasuke then throws the scroll to the grass Ninja but Naruto intercepts it. Naruto punches Sasuke during his attempt to convince him into giving the scroll up. Naruto accuses Sasuke of being an impostor as Sasuke would never be so weak and cowardly. Meanwhile, three corpses are discovered by the proctors of the exam. The corpses belong to the original Grass Ninjas who have had their faces stolen. Proctor Anko clearly has a history with the jutsu used to rob the Ninjas faces. The Grass Ninja summons a giant snake and engages Naruto. During the fight Naruto begins to utilize the chakra of the nine tailed fox. The Grass Ninja notices this during the fight and tries to end it quickly. The grass ninja believes Naruto to be defeated and moves on to the next target. Naruto stops the attack on Sasuke and once again rails at Sasuke for his lack of courage. Recognizing Naruto as the demon fox's container and that during moments of excitement the energy leaks into Naruto, the ninja suppresses the Kyuubi's chakra with a new seal and Naruto seemingly faints. Naruto's body is dropped and Sakura pins it to a tree with a Kunai in mid air. Sasuke seemingly reaches a decision to fight.


    No spoilers: No talk of future arcs, events, etc! All spoiler talk must be taken to the anime forum or through pm! Please have respect for all new viewers or else Freaky-Ass Grass Ninja Who Melts People's Faces will be coming for YOU. Believe it!

    Enjoy the episode. Sleep is always for the weak.

    BTW, I know that for a lot of fans, some of the events in this episode leads to the downfall of a certain character, but actually, this is the episode where I started to like that character. :P Maybe it was because of dat slick animation!

    Ah, so Toonami has once again reached Naruto episode #30. If I may indulge in ed-uh-muh-catering to the less knowledgeable fan...

    Episode #30 is directed by Wakabayashi Atsushi, one of the franchise's two big guest directors (Tsuru Toshiyuki being the other). Wakabayashi serves as Episode Director, Animation Supervisor (the guy who corrects key animation drawings), and is one of three credited key animators. Wakabayashi was an animation supervisor and key animator for numerous episodes of Yuu Yuu Hakusho. Wakabayashi essentially set the standard for fan-favorite episodes like #6, #12, #15, #23, #30, #35, #41, #48, #52, #58, #66, and #74.

    Serving under Wakabayashi's command for this episode are Inoue Atsuko and freelance animator Matsumoto Norio. Matsumoto Norio received top-billing under the key animation section due to drawing all of the key animation drawings for the technically dubbed 'A Part' of the episode (essentially all key drawings up through the mid-episode commercial break). In essence, Matsumoto Norio drew the key poses for all of Sasuke versus Shiore/Orochimaru. Matsumoto makes a habit of contributing about a half episode's worth of key animation to Wakabayashi Atsushi's episodes of Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. Matsumoto returns to the 2002 Naruto television series in episodes #48, #71, and #133, the former directed by Tsuru Toshiyuki and the latter two also directed by Wakabayashi with the former directed.

    Fun note: Matsumoto did key animation for Rurouni Kenshin episodes #30-31, #60, #66, and #85. He also has numerous other credits to his name.

    So, there you have it, praise be to Matsumoto Norio and Wakabayashi Atsushi. They are the reason your eyes will be popping out of your head tonight.

    I loved Wakabayashi's work on YYH. I hope Toonami airs that show again soon.
