    C&C - Naruto (Uncut) - "Kakashi and Orochimaru: Face to Face!" [9/7]

    Like This Thread!

    Well, last week Naruto had the week off thanks to Shinji Ikari and pals (and giant robots). Now we're back in action, and back in the drama of the Chuunin Exams. And guess what's happening this episode?

    Opening 2: "Haruka Kanata" by ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION
    Ending 2: "Harmonia" by RYTHEM
    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:
    Sasuke fights Yoroi, but is handicapped by his inability to use the Sharingan thanks to the danger of activating the Cursed Seal of Heaven. Yoroi reveals his ability to absorb chakra, which gives him a definite advantage over Sasuke, but Sasuke, in desperation, invents a new jutsu on the spot, borrowing heavily from a move Rock Lee used on him earlier in the exams. Despite the strain of the move, Sasuke manages to defeat Yoroi without activating the Cursed Seal. Kakashi spirits Sasuke away to suppress the cursed seal, but Orochimaru appears to confront Kakashi, Meanwhile, Shino and Zaku prepare to have their match . . .


    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 Orochimaru will be coming for YOU. Believe it!

    Enjoy the episode. Sleep is always for the weak.

    I'm not a Shino fan, but I must admit, he is a boss in this episode.

    Last time? Think Asuka gets crunched around this time. Or does Mari fall on Shinji? I don't know.

    Shino is automatically my least favorite character.

    Flashback time to his bad past.

    Or in Shino's case, millions of aces in three holes.

    No guys, I don't feel anything for the sound guy. No sad flashback to his pitiful youth will change that. He could literally drop dead right there and I would ask "So, who's in the next fight?"

    Oh yes, that ploy. That really didn't accomplish much in the short or long run. "Clever."

    A pair of aces does beat an ace high.

    We need a powerful bug zapper, stat!

    Spoiler:


    Also, I recently discovered this scene with Zaku's arms was strongly different from the manga. It's not a big deal to me personally since the point is still made across, but regardless..... HOLY COW IS SHINO SCARY!!

    Well, it's a good thing that whole flashback was filler then.

    Bugs living inside of him. I suppose it's a good thing that Shino has little relevance in this series.

    I should've known. No way they give this guy a flashback . . . I think.

    These fights are dragging.

    So Shino is like the Rat King only with bugs? I bet he is a hit with the ladies.

    I wish they would put subtitles on the Japanese text, how I am suppose to get into the dramatic tenson if I don't know what is going on. Funimation uses subtitles for the Japanese text.

    And for what, one of the fighters is a nobody who will probably never be mentioned again.

    Would it make you feel any better if I told you that the upcoming fight will only last a couple of minutes and is not even the focus of next episode? If you want any sense of dramatic tension, just wait till after the fight next episode (though you'll probably figure out what'll happen before the next two names are revealed).

    Well it would be more interesting if Kankuro fought Steve Lambardi or Barry Harowitz.
