Naruto Shippuuden episode 387

No Amagi Brilliant Park yet, so this post will have to do for today. I don’t understand why it’s so late. I can only hope that this was a one-time thing and that things will return back to “normal” next week. Short Naruto Shippuuden posts just won’t do.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 387 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.00_[2014.11.22_22.55.28]Another episode with a lot of flashback and recap scenes. Sure, there was a bit more progress than last week, but I cannot help but get a bit annoyed at those damned flashback scenes. Even more so when it’s about uninteresting characters. The manga ended weeks ago, so just get to it. Stop milking this golden cow and give this show the ending it deserves.

Anyway, Obito has been dealt with. He has been defeated and was left lying on the ground with a hole in his chest. I’ll try not to full this post with spoilers because I know that not everyone has been following the manga, but I would like nothing more than to see the remaining episodes without having to be bothered by flashback and recap scenes.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 386

Yeah, it is safe to say that the series won’t be ending after the 400th episode. They are going to milk this money cow as much as they can by the looks of it. I honestly just skipped through this episode. I couldn’t be bothered to watch all of it.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 386 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.39_[2014.11.15_23.39.37]You know, it would’ve been okay if those flashbacks where something knew. They just weren’t. I’ve seen and heard it all before. Why bother with all of that now? The last week it was the same story. Recaps and flashback scenes. This episode just didn’t contribute anything new. Not even at the end. It was the same old lets-try-to-talk-this-out-without-fighting-any-longer scenario that we have come to know and hate. Just shut up, fight this out and give us a great ending to a great series without dragging things out any further.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 385

It finally happened. The manga ended after approximately 15 glorious years. It leaves behind a long-running show, a lot of movies and sh*tload of merchandise all over the world. There are almost no anime and manga fans that don’t know about Naruto.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 385 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.54_[2014.11.08_23.11.59]I might actually have to readjust my theory about the series ending after the 400th episode if they keep going like this. It started out pretty good and for a second there it started to look like a really promising episode. Why did they have to ruin it with recaps and flashback scenes? If you stuff every following episode with scenes like that in order to drag out the series, than I feel that I must cut my losses right now and watch only the final episode. It is time to stop worrying about making more money and time to start thinking about giving this a good, worthy ending. These series are worth that much, at least.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 384

It still hasn’t sunk in that Naruto really is going to end soon. The manga will end in about two more chapters if I am not correctly, the last movie is already as good as done and the series will be finishing in about three to four months if my predictions are correct.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 384 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.21_[2014.11.01_23.01.14]Still, I watched and enjoyed this episode without even thinking about it coming to an end soon. I just enjoyed watching it as I saw how Naruto and Sasuke pulled off a Tailed Beast / Sasano’o combo that Madara used to do in the olden days when he was fighting the First Hokage. I don’t think those two knew about that?

Seeing how Kurama was being shielded by Susano’o was pretty cool. The idea of having Naruto pull out the Chakra’s of the other Tailed Beasts was pretty cool too. I still remember Naruto struggling to during those days, and he even needed the help of his parents if I remember correctly. I even remember writing one hell of a review about that episode. Those were the days…

Naruto Shippuuden episode 383

I find this episode quite amusing for one simple reason; the five Kage showed up after being absent for quite some time. They showed up and turned out to be quite useless, but that was to be expected. The five of them couldn’t do a damned thing against Madara, so what chance do they have against Obito and the Ten Tails?

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 383 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.12_[2014.10.25_23.49.24]The big chiefs show up and the new generation has to clean up their mess once again. Isn’t that how it’s always been? They manage things and at one point things south, at which point the new generation gets to take over and do the dirty work. That’ll end with Naruto if all goes as he planned. He’s certainly doing his best to ensure that all of his friends live to see that day.

Is it annoying that Obito withstood that combined attack from Naruto and Sasuke? Yes. Is it even more annoying that they’re both nearly rendered incapable of fighting any further? Definitely. But what will take the cake is how Naruto will gain yet another boost in power (probably his 11.209th boost). That much is certain.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 382

Here we go again. I hate it how things continue to go back and forth here. At one point Naruto’s strong and confident, the other he’s weak and helpless. That’ll be over soon enough though. I think the series will end after the winter.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 382 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.29_[2014.10.18_22.57.59]It annoyed me a little how confident Sasuke was when he materialized Sasano’o. Only last week did he look upon Naruto’s power with a disturbed look on his face. Now he thinks he can stand beside him as his superior even though he’s using Juugo’s cursed seal powers because he himself can’t use nature energy. Cocky fool. I really do hope he dies in the manga. I hope that from the bottom of my heart.

Other than the fact that I have always disliked Sasuke, I think that Naruto will always come out on top. He has the kind of personality that is always looking for answers in order to save himself and his friends. He and he alone can get through to Obito and stop him from enslaving everyone. Sasuke just adds oil onto the fire.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 381

It has been announced that the Naruto manga will end in five weeks. I am guessing that there won’t be any more fillers at this point and that the anime will end with the 400th episode. This is just a guess. Those companies like round numbers, so yeah.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 381 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2014.10.10_23.00.48]So Naruto’s plan ended up working and Obito found himself in a position where he thought he needed to use the Infinite Tsukuyomi, a Jutsu that will supposedly enslave everyone with a powerful Genjutsu, a little bit earlier than planned. It just goes to show how much Naruto and the others are pressuring him. It’s those two (three if you count that annoying Zetsu) against an army of powerful Shinobi, including several Kage’s. It won’t be long now before the other Kage’s show up to re-join the battle as well, making it even harder for Obito and Madara to move.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 381 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.25_[2014.10.10_23.01.26]I loved the part where Sasuke witnessed Naruto’s progress. He was annoyed by how much Chakra Naruto has nowadays and how well he can control it all. That’s just what happens when you’ve got friends that would die for you. Sasuke has lost all that along the way because of his desire to take revenge.

They might throw in a few flashback scenes to lengthen it all out a bit in order to properly reach the 400th episode, but I am not bothered. In fact, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they actually threw in a few fillers to milk out a bit more money in the end. After all, the Naruto series (and movies) have been money making machines since ’99.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 380

Ugh… I feel terrible today. I just want to go to bed and end the day. Good thing this episode turned out pretty good, otherwise my day would’ve been even worse. That’s how it is. Enough with the comedy. Its action time.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 380 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.12_[2014.10.04_23.01.12]To keep things simple and short: Naruto had one of those rare moments of his where an idea just springs into his head. He decided to ‘talk’ to the Nine Tails’ other half inside his father’s body by bumping fists. Since everyone still had a bit of Naruto’s Nine Tail Chakra mix inside them, however little it may have been, it allowed for Naruto and Naruto’s father to teleport everyone outside that barrier so that they wouldn’t get caught up in the blast. For Naruto to have good ideas is rare, but for him to have ideas that actually turn out great is just… Wow. I hope the world finally noticed that he is more than just an idiot.
