Okay, I gotta be honest I skipped through parts of this one a bit cause it was getting boring.

It started out like the manga at first so i was happy to see things moving along in that direction and then they did more pointless story that didn’t take place in the manga.

I was surprised that Naruto didn’t sense that Utakata was a Jinchuriki before. I thought that they could sense that kind of stuff, but then again, he didn’t sense it in Gaara before, but that was a long time ago and Naruto has had more training since then.

The filler part was boring except for seeing Utakata go six tails and hold his own against Pein. That part I liked. They sprinkled in just enough story so that if you skip this episode you miss some key events. It all wraps up with each of the Jinchuriki pulling out one tail.

In the next episode it looks like we will be getting to the heart of the fight between fake Madara and Naruto as the Biju come out to play. Itachi and Kisame look to show up in a flash back and Gai sensei is there, which leads me to believe either flash back or they’re going through the story very quickly. Keep your fingers crossed for no filler next week.

I’ll give this episode 3 out of 5

If not for actually seeing the fight between the 6 tails and Pein it would have been 2, but there was just enough story in this episode and the battle was interesting enough to keep me watching. Here’s hoping they do better next week.

Chapter 641: You Two are the Main Act! Review

WARNING DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU ARE NOT CURRENT WITH THE MANGA

Chapter 641: You Two are the Main Act

Chapter 641: You Two are the Main Act! Click to read!

Chapter 641: You Two are the Main Act! Click to read!

The Setup

The 2nd and forth Hogake make plans for a counter attack, meanwhile Madara and the Hashirama are duking it out, because Madara can’t seem to get over his man crush on Hashirama. The ninjas are all afraid until Shikamaru gives them a pep talk. Sasuke and Naruto decide to strike first since the 2nd and 4th are busy making plans. They make another combined flaming Rasenshuriken and the 2nd and 4th teleport Obito into the attack. Sakura asks what they are doing and she replies that they are laughing.

Chapter 641 end

My thoughts

Okay so Madara needs to figure out exactly what he’s doing on the battle field, cause right now he just seems to be fangirling all over Hashirama. The pep talk to Shika was nice, and it was a good touch that everyone else seemed to understand just how worthless they were in this fight. I like the idea of Shikamaru becoming Hokage, I honestly think he would make a good one, but I don’t see him wanting to do the job. In his words it’s just “too troublesome.”

Next we have the fight between Juubito and the fantastic 4 as I now like to call them. So Naruto and Sasuke are like, man you guys take too long to plan in the middle of a war. I was actually happy to see the 2 of them basically say “F this! We’re gonna go attack now.” Of course Tobirama and Minato put there plan into action and pull off a nice combined attack. And no, I don’t think this was enough to take Juubito down. I hate it when you’re in a fight and all you get are talking points, I understand that to take on something this powerful you need to strategize, but no one wants two people standing around talking during an epic war. So I’m glad Naruto and Sasuke jumped the gun a bit.

So my big question here is where the hell is the 3rd?! We’ve got Tobirama and Minato helping Sasuke and Naruto. Hashirama is fighting off Madara’s advances. Where the hell did the old man go?! Did Kishi just forget about him? He summons all the Kage to the battle field, they kick ass for a bit, and then he forgets one?! And this is the Hokage we know the most about! Seriously?!

So Temari showed up in this chapter along with Sakura and Hinata. It was good to see them again, but there is really so much going on right now. I feel like we should do a “Return of the Jedi” thing here. You know, how they had the 3 battles going on at the end. The space battle with all the Imperial and Rebel Navy’s going at it, the battle for the control of the shield bunker for Endor, and finally the battle for Vader’s soul on the Death Star. They cut to different ones so that you weren’t stuck in the same place and getting too bored with what was going on where, and with your favorite characters.

All in all I give this chapter a B+

A good read but I want more.

Shippuden Episode 323 Review

PLEASE WATCH THE EPISODE BEFORE READING THE REVIEW!!!

Sadly, not as awesome as last week’s episode was, but it wasn’t too bad either.

There was too much dialogue going on at the beginning which almost makes you think this will be a talky episode, but those who have read a head and know whats coming in the story know better, and so we stick with the episode because we know badassery is afoot.

The episode picks up about midway through with it’s action. And let’s face it the episode is called “the five kage assemble,” not “the five kage show up and fight.”

So I went into this one not expecting to see a lot. Sadly that’s one of the areas that I think the Ninja Storm games shine better than the anime. You get the 5 kage fight, and damn do you get it!

It ends with more orless how the manga chapter ended with Naruto and “Masked Madara” (like we don’t all know who he is now.) headbutting into each other.

Overall I give this episode a 3 out of 5

There was lots of dialogue and explanation, but not too unnecessary that it served no purpose. All dialogue moved the plot forward, and at least it wasn’t moving at a snails pace like Attack on Titan is.

That anime is frustrating. Seriously, if you like the anime DO NOT READ THE MANGA! Please just continue to enjoy the anime, once you are current you will hate the anime for moving so slowly.

Preview

So the next episode will be the Jinchuriki fight and judging from the title, it will have a bit to do with bubble boy the 6 tails jinchuriki.

Please god stick to the story, we get it, you met him before in the anime, but you didn’t in the manga so please do not make a whole episode about Naruto coming to terms with having to fight this guy.

That’s all for now guys, I’ll see you again when I review the manga.

This is worthy of a “Shannaro”

But the best part about this announcement is we finally have a release date!

September 19, so get your frog wallets full for this one!

If you don’t know the premise, here is a brief rundown that isn’t spoiler heavy.

Forgettable movie villain messes with time Naruto gets sent back around 20 years.

He fights with several members of Konoha back then including papa Hokage.

There is so much awesome stuff in just the parts where no one is fighting going on in the past.

If you a fan of Minato, Kakashi, and Naruto. You will want to add this one to your collection.
