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

    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.

    Something's wrong with that eye...

    It is revealed! Steven Blum can do a good Mary McGlynn impression! Or should I say...Orochimaru!

    I know that voice...

    Voldemort?

    Does that mean he's going to turn into an Orochimaru now?

    Oh great. The first time Sakura says she needs Naruto and he's too unconscious to hear it.

    So Orochimaru finally appears. Awesome, meanwhile Sakura continues to set the women's movement back.
