Naruto Shippuuden episode 284

Quite the amusing little episode this turned out to be. Not as good as last week’s episode, but I can’t complain. There were a few things that I found rather strange though, but I’ll get to that later. For now, I just want to point out that I’ve seen lots of things already that don’t go entirely according to the manga.

This episode primarily revolved around Kakashi’s team against several of Kabuto’s resurrected goons. Sai’s sealing Justsu, a Jutsu that he learned from Danzo during his training days, to seal away those goons. After all, you can’t defeat someone with an immortal body. You cut him up, knock him down and blow him up, yet he keeps coming back for me. It’s no use. Sealing or using then memories against them are the only two options. However, only one option remains since Kabuto removed their memories. You can try to make them remember, sure, but it’s a lot easier to just seal the bastards until you find a way to undo the resurrection Justsu.

Now, we are all aware of white Zetsu’s tricky abilities. He can blend into surroundings, completely take on a person’s identity and god only knows what else. I found it rather change that Kakashi, knowing all that, decided to tell Lee, whom could’ve been one of those white Zetsu’s in disguise, all about Sai’s sealing Justsu. I find that rather strange, especially since we just spent several episodes about how dreadful white Zetsu’s abilities can be.

It has been a very strange episode. Kakashi almost blew it, Sai managed to successfully seal on of those guys and Lee once again proved how weak he can be without using his ultimate move. Sigh, I suppose it’s safe to expect an angry email or two about that last remark… Oh well…
