Naruto Shippuuden episode 252

I have been waiting for this week’s episode of Naruto Shippuuden all day. To think that I spoke so negatively about Naruto Shippuuden a few weeks ago… Not that anyone could blame me. Some of those episodes were absolutely ridiculous, perhaps even insulting to some of the fans.

Still, this week’s episode wasn’t too bad. We finally got to see Kabuto, Orochimaru’s old lackey, who seems to have undergone a dreadful transformation. He was ugly before, but this just made things a lot worse. It seems that he has finally contacted Tobi in order to offer him his support. I’m sure we all know why; Kabuto has always been attracted to power and is willing to kiss anyone’s ass in order to gain some (power). I don’t think that Tobi trusts him, not one bit by the looks of it. He is completely aware that Kabuto only does things if it benefits him in some way, that’s what makes him so dangerous.

Anyway, Tobi was on his way to see Konan in order to retrieve Nagato’s body, or his eyes to be more specific. I’m sure that some of you may be wondering why I’m calling him Tobi. Well… That’s because it hasn’t been confirmed that he is indeed Madara. So I’m calling him Tobi until then. I don’t want to spoil anything, but if I am to believe the manga then I’m quite right in doing so.

The fight between him and Kanon was dreadful. He was constantly a step ahead. But even he had to be careful when fighting Kanon, after all, she was a member of the Akatsuki. He soon came to realize that she knew about most of his little secrets, but that soon changed when Tobi told her the truth about the Akatsuki.

That’s right. It turns out that the Akatsuki wasn’t formed by Yahiko. It was actually Tobi all along. He has been pulling the strings from behind the scenes ever since he came in contact with them. Also, we came to know that Tobi was also the one who gave Nagato the Rinnegan. That must’ve been quite the shock for Kanon. Still, she wouldn’t give up, hell no. Quite the opposite actually; she’s about to use something very big.

I will once again be looking forward to next week’s episode. I can’t wait to see what Kanon has in store for us. I would like to end this post by saying that Naruto has always been one of my favourite shows. It would’ve been my number one if it weren’t for those ridiculous fillers from time to time, not to mention all recaps.
