    This one's gotta go up a mite early due to conflicts tomorrow. Hope you don't mind.

    I have a feeling Zabuza does mind, though. *scurries off*

    So this is his town.

    If you live to see the dawn, it's because he allows it.

    He's in charge of everything.

    He decides who lives or who dies.

    OKAY, FINE, THEY'LL STAY!! NO NEED TO DRIVE IT IN FURTHER!!

    One of the most broken abilities in the series.

    Ya know, rewatching the show.... all this information about the Sharingan, Kakashi and Zabuza'a reputation and the Land of Waves could've just been summarized in a few sentences worth of lines. It sounds like everyone is just repeating the information they all just said.

    And apparently this episode covered only 2 chapters of the manga. That's as slow as an episode of Bleach!

    So Sauske was so freaked out by Zazuba attacking, that he would rather diei? No wonder people say he's emo.

    Admittedly, it can depend on the manga itself, but two chapters of manga per episode, comparatively, isn't that bad (The One Piece anime frequently does one chapter per episode to disastrous effect).

    The reason the Bleach anime is slow, despite covering two chapters per episode, is because the manga itself is so poorly paced.

    Yeah, I get how the pacing of a show can vary on where it was adapted from and by how much is adapted per episode. But regardless in retrospect, especially after how far into the story Naruto is, *sigh* ...it feels really slow and unnecessary to be so talkative and even exaggerate these bits of information early into the series. Like for instance, "the sharingan is a rare and powerful dojustu residing in the eyes of the uchiha clan and can copy everything to the last detail and blah blah blah, blah blah, blah blah!" Like, what the hell? It sounds like listening to someone reading a manual. And rare and powerful my ass! Yeah, it's rare and powerful as well as dozens of other ones!

    I dunno. It just makes me wish that while I love seeing stories like these adapted to an anime, you would wish people in Japan wouldn't be so eager to get what may likely be a long-running series going or else stuff like what happens in Naruto and Bleach and other shonen with the pacing and filler arcs occur.

    Well, thanks to some lameness, I missed the majority of the episode. I caught the end, but only the last few moments :(

    I figured that. But I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

    If by broken you mean it really hurts the user to the point where he's forced to endure prolonged hospital stays, then sure. :p

    No one made an Assassin's Creed reference? For shame :p

    In any case, how was the episode? I missed a good chunk of it (read: most of it). Is it worth checking out again?>

    It wasn't bad, but I definitely prefer the next one.

    While it does has it's drawbacks, the sharingan gets really ridiculous later on.

    Aw man, I remember first seeing this episode back in middle school when it first aired on Toonami, me and my friends thought he (Zabuza) was just a BAMF. Then, Iook at him now and I'm like, really?

    Only for kakashi... the uchiha on the otherhand, get all of the benefits and then some with none of the drawbacks.

    I suppose the best time to watch the show is when one is 16, when one can truly appreciate the flavor more.
