Naruto: Shippūden episode 165 – Nine-Tails, Captured!

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too The clash between the enigmatic Pain and a Naruto completely changed by his last training on Mount Myoboku goes on tirelessly. The Konoha ninja is able to knock down almost all the bodies controlled by Pain by exploiting all of his most powerful and effective techniques (and tactics), killing another one thanks to the enormous potential of the nature energy he is now able to canalize and finally being neutralized by the last remaining Pain. This episode too doesn’t lack shocks, incredible deaths and big talks about peace and war.

Naruto: Shippūden episode 163 – Explode! Sage Mode

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too This week’s Naruto Shippuuden episode is really spectacular! 😀 The mephitic Pain attacked the Leaf Village with all of his frightening strength, killing many key characters of the anime and eventually tearing down Konoha with some sort of cold atomic explosion. This is when Naruto goes on stage, having just completed his training on Mount Myoboku and learning the secrets of the Sage Mode – the same one used by his defunct master Jiraiya. And the training results are immediately noticeable when Naruto attacks Pain with all of his usual, exploding rush…

Naruto: Shippūden episode 141 – Truth

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Hi there everybody, long time no see huh? 😛 I’m not dead, the blog is not dead nor is the will to post, let’s just say that I’ve taken a little, forced break because of the lack of serenity in my life and the resulting difficulty to focus on amusing and yet demanding activities like writing some text on these pages. On the other hand Christmas is here, the most shitty period of the year full of hypocrisy and chocolate crap to sweeten the most sensitive palates. So better enjoying the last episode of Naruto Shippuuden’s sixth season, where the secrets unfold and Madara reveals the truth about Itachi’s past and the real motivations that drove him on his cursed pathway. Provided this version is the “real” truth, anyway… AnimeCrazy.net (alternative hosting); Episodes list on Wikipedia; Naruto on Sir Arthur’s Den.

Naruto: Shippūden episode 137 – Amaterasu!

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Just a few words to introduce the episode because I still have to eat the cake, play to Braid and try the just downloaded Serious Sam HD: Sasuke and Itachi go into the heart of battle, unleash their secret weapons and more generally they beat the hell out of each other. Good show, anyway, even though the drawings quality doesn’t impress me that much. And now excuse me while I have better things to do 😛 AnimeCrazy.net (alternative hosting); Episodes list on Wikipedia; Naruto on Sir Arthur’s Den.

Naruto: Shippūden episodes 135 & 136 – The Longest Moment & The Light & Dark of the Mangekyo Sharingan

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too For who hadn’t seen this week’s Naruto Shippuuden episodes yet, here is the usual reminder with streaming clips: the two Uchiha brothers meet and clash once again, while Itachi gives Sasuke a history lesson revealing the bloody secret of their clan. Having no knowledge of the manga apart from some rare glimpse, I dare to hope the series’ plot level will mantain the same rhythm afterward too. And now excuse me while I return to play the freshly installed Street Fighter IV 😀 For more information: AnimeCrazy.net (alternative hosting); Episodes list on Wikipedia; Naruto on Sir Arthur’s Den.

Naruto: Shippūden episodes 133 & 134 – The Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant & Banquet Invitation

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too And finally, after a week of passion due to the premature passing of a computer that was already ancient when I bought it years ago (more info to come…), I return to these places and back to watch Naruto Shippuuden 😀 Considering my unlucky adventure I embed two episodes of the anime, the first that honestly you cannot miss for several reasons (read Emanuele’s blog on the matter) and the second useful just to warm the waiting for the “Uchiha vs. Uchiha” clash scheduled next week… For more information: AnimeCrazy.net (alternative hosting); Episodes list on Wikipedia; Naruto on Sir Arthur’s Den.

Naruto: Shippūden episode 132 – In Attendance, the Six Paths of Pain

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Definitely interesting this new installment of Naruto Shippuuden 😀 The clash between the two “monsters” Pain and master Jiraiya gets serious and both the contenders prove to have abilities that are special to say the least. Before putting him off (spoiler to follow!), the series creator Masashi Kishimoto gave Jiraiya the chance to show off how far his relationship with the toad nature went and it’s a very nice/ugly thing to see all things considered… For more information: AnimeCrazy.net (alternative hosting); Episodes list on Wikipedia; Naruto on Sir Arthur’s Den.

Naruto: Shippūden episode 131 – Honored Sage Mode!

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Oh, finally after so much useless (and as far as I am concerned slightly exciting) chatting this week Jiraiya and his antagonist start to fight mercilessly and beat each other to death 😛 The feature of Naruto that always entertained me the most is the series tendency to large scale clashes (or “legendary”, or whatever), and one of these clashes is exactly the one starting now between the toad-master and his former Rinnegan equipped apprentice. Thumb up and let’s see how this goes on… For more information: AnimeCrazy.net (alternative hosting); Episodes list on Wikipedia; Naruto on Sir Arthur’s Den.

Naruto: Shippūden episodes 129 & 130 – Infiltrate! The Village Hidden in the Rain & The Man Who Became God

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too I’m starting to feel tired of these Naruto specials broadcasted every two weeks, to me it seems that the authors tend to shorten events that would deserve a different emphasis to little exciting summaries. Anyway this week’s double episode is the forerunner of a battle that should stir up my interest for the series a bit, no less than the clash between Jiraiya and a man who thinks to be a god because of his inborn ability, the Rinnegan.

Naruto: Shippūden episodes 127 & 128 – Tales of a Gutsy Ninja ~ Jiraiya Ninja Scroll

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too The last week pause is justified by the double portion of Naruto Shippuuden dispensed in the current one, focused on master Jiraiya’s young adventures. So it’s a new monothematic special on a single character from the anime, which obviously includes toads, snakes, slugs and battles too in full respect of the folklore story from which the Naruto author took inspiration for the character.
