Naruto Shippuuden episode 332
Another difficult episode, but I’m very, very happy with it. It’s an episode that Naruto fans have been waiting for. It’s absolutely vital for them to reduce the recap and flashback scenes at this point to ensure that it follows the manga’s story as accurately as possible.
You start with an eyeful of Madara’s battle. The five Kages are doing their best to keep him at bay. It’s difficult because she’s such an overpowered character, even more so with undead body that keeps regenerating. The funny thing about that body, as it turns out, is that it belonged to the first Hokage, Tsunade’s grandfather, which would finally explain clearly why Madara is capable of using wood-style Jutsu. I was under the impression that he was capable of such a thing because he fought him in the past, even though that still wouldn’t explain why he was suddenly capable of using those types of Jutsu.
I’m kind of torn between heaven and hell here, because I am getting a bit tired of seeing those recap and flashback scenes. They just don’t contribute, yet they need to throw in something in order to keep giving the manga more and more time to get a head. I suppose it’s better than watching episodes that exist solely out of recaps.
Anyway, I just hope that it won’t affect the next few episodes. I would hate for that to happen now that Itachi and Sasuke have been reunited once more. Those that read the manga know what’s about to happen, but I won’t post any spoilers here. I’ll finish this post by saying that we’re all about to see something absolutely awesome.
