    C&C - Naruto Shippuden - "A Meeting With Destiny" [3/29]

    Like This Thread!
    The final Toonami before Adult Swim's expansion contains the beginning of some confrontation versus a pair of Akatsuki we were introduced to in Part 1: Kisame and Itachi.




    Official Naruto: Shippuden Talkback Thread



    Opening 1: "Hero's Comeback" by nobodyknows+
    Ending 1: "Nagare Boshi ~Shooting Star~" by HOME MADE Kazoku

    Both the OP and ED are available for download in high quality from the Toonami Digital Arsenal.



    Last time on Naruto Shippuden:

    Spoiler:
    Chiyo and Team Kakashi head out to find the Akatsuki, and Chiyo tells them about the nine Tailed Beasts in the world, and two of them are sealed in Gaara and Naruto. Meanwhile, Kakashi's summon, Pakkun, notices Guy's approach and informs them of the Akatsuki's lair positioned in the Land of Rivers. Zetzu of the Akatsuki notices them approaching, however, and sounds a warning to the other Akatsuki, who are in the process of sealing Gaara. The Akatsuki leader tells Kisame and Itachi to deal with the incoming Konoha shinobi, instructing them to use "that jutsu" to delay the Konoha shinobi. Kisame and Itachi split up to do so, Kisame facing off against Might Guy's squad . . . and Itachi to face down Kakashi and Naruto . . .


    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 the Akatsuki will be coming for YOU. Believe it!

    Enjoy the episode. Sleep is always for the weak.

    Time for some decent episodes, finally. If only the animation was better...

    Animation picks up in the mid-20's. Right now Shippuden's suffering because it's still stuck with the budget the final episodes of original Naruto had, which was . . . nothing, basically. Animation will pick up again after episode 54 and then picks up one more time at episode 72, where it settles into a steady rhythm of episodes switching from mediocrity to good to superb right until the most recent episodes, really. Even the worst animated episodes of 72+ are better than what we have now.

    Well, for the most part. I am sure there's still some bad apples in there visually, I just don't remember them.

    Last time: Kisame and Might Guy meet again, except the latter doesn't remember the former. And Itachi reappears.

    This time: New combat technique?

    Previously on Shippuden: Lots of running and exposition, and then Akatsuki heads off Team Naruto and Lee

    Sorry Kisame, but Arlong's still a better fishman than you.

    Kisame just barfed up a tidal wave. Still trying to figure out how that works.

    So two are better than one. Nice exposition for something that is essentially just common sense.

    Why hasn't Itachi done something yet?

    Even Tenten is wondering that. Weird.

    Kind of like anime time in general.

    So far, Team Guy's getting the action while Team Kakashi gets exposition.
    Oh, hai, Adult Swim.

    "It was only a water clone"

    It's ALWAYS a clone!

    So, 10 minutes of standing around and talking.

    ITACHI IS SO F**KING COOL!!!
