    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?

    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!


    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!!

    An ominous theme indeed.

    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.

    Gee I wonder who will win this one? The sand ninja or the nobody.

    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.
