English Title: The Weapons Known as Shinobi (for the Japanese title, replace Weapons with Tools in some cases)
DO NOT ADJUST YOUR MONITORS! BECAUSE BIONIX GOT THE PREMIERE THIS WEEK, they get their own talkback banner now!
Last week, we had some insane Demon Fox action, mirror breaking, and the bad luck of being asked to kill someone! Also, Kakashi is getting a brand new Lightning Blade ready to rumble like the thunder itself! (pun intended)
I'm starting to think that I need to make a Bionix talkback banner, as Canada gets the new episode on YTV tonight again! See what one week of reruns can do for you? But still, the YTV site's main images for the show and on the schedule strip show Sauske!! Ooops!
How will Viz handle the fact that Haku has a 50% chance of dying this week? Also, we've got odds of 40% on Zabusa's survival via an attack with a Lightning Blade weilded by Kakashi, whilst Sakura just looks on doing nothing but comic relief with her inner self! If you wanna learn the truth, watch it when it airs, tonight on YTV at 9:30pm, and tommorow night on Toonami (of course!!!) Also, we have a 100% percent chance of editing, so be forewarned!
Key Characters for this arc:
Naruto Uzumaki: The Number One Knucklehead Ninja, the misfit of the group, his Shadow Clone Jutsu is his specality. At birth, the evil fox demon Kyuubi got sealed inside him, and he can tap into his energy for extra power in the right situations. He is a loudmouth, sometimes happy-go-lucky, and his favorite line: Beleive It! But is he good? Beleive it!
Sasuke Uchiha: The last survivor of the Uchiha Clan, the clan which held the legendary Sharingan Eye, Sasuke is an avenger who seeks to destroy a certain man. He's the top student from Naruto's class, and he immagines himself as above all of his peers. In truth, he is. He is Naruto's rival, and managed to get the first leg up in their rivalry with his quick acting against the Demon Brothers. Sasuke is surprised to learn that Kakashi has a Sharingan in his left eye. Together with Naruto, he helped carry out the plan to free Kakashi. He also managed to take out ten of Zabuza's Water Clones. His special technique is Fire Style, Fireball Jutsu.
Sakura Haruno: Another member of Naruto's team, she has the best Chakra control, but her field skills aren't very good. She likes reading books. Sometimes she lets it off steam via Inner Sakura, a visual metaphor of the things she is afraid to say! She has a crush on Sauske...
Kakashi Hatake: A jounin, Kakashi has never passed a team of genin before. Almost all of his friends are dead. He places a heavy emphasis on teamwork, and believes those who abandon their friends are worse then scum. He is well known amongst both allies and enemies as the "Copy Ninja", and he has a Sharingan in his left eye, which he normally keeps concealed. Kakashi has great faith in his subordinates. Other than his Sharingan, his powerful attack is his Lightning Blade Jutsu, which he uses in this week's episode!
Zabuza Momochi: Known as 'The Demon of the Mist', Zabuza has been sent to take care of Tazuna. Zabuza is a rouge ninja from the Village Hidden By Mist, who specializes in Silent Assassination. Zabuza is infamous for killing 100 academy students when he was just one himself, and is the reason that the Village Hidden By Mist changed their outdated methods. Haku faked killing Zabuza to save him from Kakashi, and Zabuza prepared for a rematch, knowing the Sharingan's weakness.
Haku: Zabuza's young ally, he looks and sounds like a girl, and worships Zabuza like a hero. He led a very tough childhood, and was rescued in a way by Zabuza. He gains strength by fighting for Zabuza's sake. Haku used his signature moves against Naruto during this arc, such as her infamous Crystal Ice Mirrors, and her abilites of extreme speed.
Tazuna: A world renowned bridge builder from the Land of Waves, Tazuna requested protection from thugs. However, he left out the fact that there would be enemy ninjas after him as well.
