This episode will do nothing to stop the flood of IrukaxMizuki yaoi. Ugh.

Otherwise, an okay episode. Nice save at the end.

Nothing could stop it Shikamaru. To even try is madness. MADNESS!

Any, which Ino-SHika-Cho are they talking about, old or young?

Even worse though is that they gave another scene in the last episode of Kakashi and Iruka interacting without Kakashi telling him off. As if that pairing needed more encouragement...

Exploding Rasengan? Get off my screen. 2, for having Ino-Shika-Cho show up at the very end. If not for them, I would have given this 1. Mizuki using Orochimaru's personal techniques, The Stupid Brothers still being on my screen and Mizuki acting less psycho dragged this down.

What I reeeeeeally liked about this:
-Seeing young Mizuki
-Seeing young Iruka for a change
-Iruka & Mizuki in action
-Ino-Shika-Cho

I guess I overrated it.... 9! But I reeeeeeeeeaallly LOVE Mizuki :3 heh!

I'm really getting tired of seeing Naruto shown as an unimaginative simpleton, Those who created this filler arc only saw his goofy side and nothing else.

Dumb episode, saved slightly by the Trio. A 3.

And 'the best trio in the village'? I'm sorry, but I think their fathers would be better. After all, they're older and more experienced.

I really don't get Tsunade. She keeps sending kids on missions where adults should be sent. I mean, don't send those three, send their fathers! :D

The main problem with the fillers is they seem to forget all the emotional maturing Naruto has gone through throught the series. And that he is the second most clever guy there is.

What is with them and over using the resengen. I miss the kage bunshin using Naruto :( Plus as ZUbuza said: "A ninja's secert weapon should not be used in every random battle."

The ending with the trio was the only worth while aspect of this episode.

2 (for the over use of the prized rasengan).

Wow, what a horrible episode. I gave it a three. Mizuki always having a kunai irritated the hell out of me, as did Naruto's overuse of Kage Bunshin and Rasengan.



Edit: Oops. ^_^ Mizuki throws Kurenai! Ha.

You mean kunai, right Haku? :lol: If he had Kurenai, I don't think he'd be envious of too many people.

I'm getting tired of Naruto as a one-trick pony, but I think it's partly Kishimoto's fault the fillers keep overusing Rasengan. He didn't give it any drawbacks, not like Chidori or Gates, which can kill/cripple you if used too often.

I disliked this episode, though the Iruka/Mizuki fight wasn't too bad. Fairly typical of recent Naruto fights with too many flashbacks in the middle, but at least we saw some use of traps, and anticipation, a bit of environment use as well. Also, Mizuki using the hide in the earth trick marks the first time a chuunin has actually used a jutsu, so yay for that.

I really, really, hated the stupid brothers fight. Here's the problem, take all of Naruto's charging clones, and instead of have them punch, have them each stab with a kunai. What happens here?

And while the Ino-Shika-Cho team had a fairly cool appearance, I qustion what they are doing there. Why, after watching two jounin plus guards, and then a team of at least a jounin and three chuunin (Shizune's) lose to this group, do you send one chunin and two genin to help out? I fail to see the logic here.

Of course, I think this whole arc is ridiculous. It's based on the very foolish pretense that ninja actually keep other ninja as prisoners on a permanent basis. This is both a) illogical B) just stupid, there's too many ways for ninja to escape any prison and c) not keeping with any historical ninja tradition (the traditional penalty for nearly all ninja issues is death). I cannot think of a single good reason (aside from the mercy of the Leaf's tender hearts) for keeping Mizuki alive following interogation, never mind in a situation where he can train to become stronger.

I'm so sad. The last arc was pretty good...this arc is just...blah.

Everything being connected to Orochimaru annoys me...Mizuki being really buff annoys me for some reason.

The supporterss of Mizuki/Iruka yaoi will be extremely happy. I shuddered. It really didn't need encouragement.

The only save was the ramen bowl line again and seeing InoShikaChou makes me happy.

*cheers for Shikamaru*

I'll be amazed if the stupid brothers were anything beyond genins.

The fight between Iru and Mizu is off the chart themost boring fight.
throwing Kunai every second won't make anything happen.....

And as for Naruto looking stupid. well if we all saw the manga we know how
he grew in the past 3 years.

And this is only a filler anywayz... but i gave it a 6. Since i saw Sarutobi again..
And the flashback was alright 2... But the best part is InoShikaCho

well i like naruto and iruka together without any xtra because it is their story but the trio is cutting in which make it more meaningless.i wanted to see iruka use his jutsu but what i get?A bunch of useless kunai keep flying,this is almost getting a 1 but i really wishes to see how mizuki was when he was young so a 8 at least this was bttr than the last esp.But i hope the next esp is three hungry hulks battle cause chouji's here to snatch their food...yeah

sigh, this arc is becoming disapointing, which given I foud the premise of it interesting to begin with makes that fact in and of itself disapointing. Maybe it'll look up now that the Team 10 is here. Also hopefully they'll begin Kakashi Gaiden after another two eisodes.

I gave it a 3 ;)

It bothers me how chuunin are set as weak ninjas, when they should be a step higher than genins. Also, Naruto is clearly as strong as any chuunin in the main story, and probably stronger than a jounin with the kyuubi powers.
It also bothers me how chuunin never use anything else but bunshin no jutsu or kawarimi......if you look at how many jutsus the ex-rookie genin know, they're falling behind.

I don't like all of that to be honest. They're making the characters and random ninja look too weak. the only cool thing was the rescue.

Am I correct in assuming that there is one more episode left for this arc, and that the Kakashi Gaiden arc is next?

I hope so, really want it to be animatied.

Episode 145: "Explosion! New Formation, InoShikaChou"

Episode 146: "Leftover Ambitions and Orochimaru"

So at the very least there are two more episodes of filler left.

Wow. I just watched this arc.

I was rather disappointed. Fuujin and Raijin are just... bleh. And I really hope Iruka does something soon.

Ya Iruka is such an idiot. why couldnt he just fight. He was like " NO i cant fight my comrade" <_< ?I think he really is a yaoi.
and my god Naruto could've at least did the rasengan faster.
At least i no choji will be fighting in the next episodes. i'd give this episode a 6.
Bad things about this episode
1. No good fighting sceans.
2. Iruka crying
Good things
1.seeing iruka's past(if it was without the crying scean it would've been fine)
2.knowing choji will be fighting
and thats it
