Naruto Shippuuden episode 270
This proved to be quite the amusing episode. I almost forgot how strong Ino, Shikamaru and Chouji could be. I do have some trouble with them using their parents’ legacy though. That formation was something their parents created. I think I would’ve rather seen something original.
So yeah, their battle against Kinkaku continued. Not that I can or would call it a battle though. It was suicide to attack Kinkaku head-on in that state. Buying time is one thing, but actually running to your grave is overdoing it a bit. Darui could only try his best to survive till reinforcements arrive, hoping that they could help him seal Kinkaku in that pot.
By this point Naruto had realized that something was wrong. He sensed the Nine Tails’ Chakra that surrounded Kinkaku’s entire body. It’s only a matter of time before that feelings eats him away, forcing him to break free from that island. And yes, I do believe that he’s basically a prisoner right now. Nobody told him anything about the war. They all just want him to stay where he is right now.
I think that Naruto Shippuuden is about to get better than ever. All the key characters are about join in and the story is about to take off. Hell, even Tsunade’s love of her life, and I don’t mean Jiraiya, has been revived by the Edo Tensei. Not to mention that Ino, Shikamaru and Chouji will have to fight their beloved mentor next week. That is something you just can’t miss; three students fighting their former teacher. Awesomeness guaranteed.
