Naruto Shippuuden episode 264

Now this was quite the surprise. I’m not sure whether or not I should be happy with this episode, but I definitely enjoyed it. I guess the war has officially started now, huh? Too bad that the king of all idiots is still ignorant about the whole thing.

Naruto and Bee were still training in order to control their Bijuu’s in a more controlled state. This time they focussed more on the “Tailed Beast Bomb”, which is one of the first techniques that a Jinchuuriki learns when he or she acquires the Tailed Beast Mode. Naruto, although under Karuma’s control, already performed that attack on several occasions. That technique focusses on condensing positive and negative chakra into a small yet powerful ball, which in turn will turn into a huge Chakra blast when unleashed. However, Naruto knew the secret to this technique all along. It was hidden within the Rasengan, a Jutsu that his father created. Coincidence? I think not.

Meanwhile Kabuto and Tobi were going at it. Tobi was getting impatient with Kabuto and started asking questions. Kabuto wouldn’t risk fighting someone with both the Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan, so he decided to tell Tobi how his Edo Tensei works. He needs a specific seal to bring a soul back from the world of the dead, the corpse of the individual you want to resurrect and a living body to bind it all to. It is a dreadful Jutsu that takes life, changes life and controls life. It doesn’t actually give life. It just makes you a prisoner of your own body, that’s all. Kabuto also explained to him how the Edo Tensei can be cancelled, which (for Tobi) would be to control the caster’s senses.

I have always been curious as to how the Edo Tensei actually works, and I was more than pleased when Kabuto did that little demonstration. It somehow reminded me of Konan when I saw all that paper. Could it be that she is somehow connected to that Jutsu? I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out that Konan actually helped to perfect that Jutsu, only to bring Yahiko back to life.

I thought that I had seen it all, but that’s when suddenly the war started. The Allied Shinobi Force found out that the enemy, namely those Zetsu parasites, moved underground in order to attack from the back. All hell is going to break loose now that the battle has actually started. The next episode is going to be epic!

  1. Dont worry, Naruto will find out soon enough. He needs to train before he faces those kinds of enemies, otherwise he’ll just be in the way.

    And by that I mean 2nd level curse mark and Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan?
