    Ninja Sign!

    I may have missed last episode, but at least they remember to replay the last few scenes the next episode. Thank goodness for standard formulas! :)

    Shouldn't Sakura be standing next to the bridge builder right now? ...not like it matters.

    Sakura: You guys can do it!

    Kakashi: No, Sakura, don't do anything useful - even cheerleading.

    Slowest battle ever. Did anything really happen during last episode?

    Kakashi: Are you finish bragging? You're putting me to sleep.

    Hear! Hear!

    Now that I think about it, since Kakashi and Zabuza are both masked, it gives their voice actors plenty of room to emote without worrying about lip synching.

    The Builder: The visibility is... ZERO!

    And we have Title Drop!

    Sasuke has summoned a Fire Vampire!

    Zabuza: The next time you see me...will be the last thing you will see!

    Didn't he make this threat before?

    Does Kakashi gaze can pierce cloud, shadow, earth, and flesh?

    Seemed like it for a moment; Kakashi's hypnotism kind of reminded me of a lesser version of Aizen's ability.

    I am NEVER going to try acupuncture.

    OH NOOOO!!!

    I hope Sasuke has enough mana for that Fireball spell.

    Wait - something happened!? Finally!

    Normally that isn't so bad. Alas, they're just way too much talking and not enough story progression.

    Indeed.

    This was around the time they had already made up their minds about whether Naruto was going to stick as a 51 episode series or whether they'd take advantage of the show's popularity to make more episodes down the line. They went with the latter but they had to start slowing the story down here already so they wouldn't catch up too fast.

    That's kinda what's going on here.

    Where did you find out about that from? First time I've ever heard of such a thing about the show.

    Well, usually Shonen shows, when they are announced, are given a 51 episode time slot. But if the ratings are high enough, the show can get "renewed" for more episodes.


    A recent example is Hunter x Hunter. When that show was first announced, I'm pretty sure that that only around 51 episodes were picked up. Well, thanks to ratings, it has continued past that mark.

    Somehow, I would imagine there be a better way to slow down without having the pace suffer, or at least not pad time up with constant talking.

    If multiple shadow clones did not work the first time, why would they work the sixth time?

    Naruto "believe it" counter: This episode: 1
    Total: 48
