Naruto x Naruto action is hot, the joke funny (if a bit predictable), and the action good.

Good episode. This is why the canon is so much better than filler. I feel like it was 20 min well spent.

Side Note: The OP and ED are very good. I actually watch them- and I've seen them both before!

that was a hell of a cliffhanger... but I can't wait for next week now so it's pretty effective

Naruto vs Naruto once again.
Well, I'm glad that he finally accepted himself for all that he is.
The unavoidable flashbacks again.
Great episode!

Shiryuu 2012-01-19 15:02

Boooo... why couldn't they make this a 1 hour episode?

HayashiTakara 2012-01-19 16:00

Finally, next week is the episode I've been waiting for!

Jerseykid 2012-01-19 16:19

I was pumped up at the end that's for sure.

Ushio the Omega 2012-01-19 17:12

It felt really short and yet it's 2 and a half chapters! It's so nice to be back on manga material.

Lumir 2012-01-19 18:06

Wow this is the naruto I enjoy most. Talk about cliff hanger. Next ep should be very interesting and who was that red head at the end? We saw his dad inside him before, but what about his mom? Can it be?

Shiryuu 2012-01-19 18:31

It's the Kyuubi trying to seduce Naruto. :uhoh:

my sentiments exactly! it feels like there hasn't been an hour special in ages and this would have been the perfect time. back when shippuden first came out they were pretty frequent. and I don't just mean double episodes. I miss the specials where there was a running theme throughout the breaks. as good as this episode was, it really left me wanting another right away:D

A special is coming on February 9th.

Masuzu 2012-01-20 07:20

^ I have a pretty good guess as to what that is, and if I'm right then the timing couldn't be better. :heh:

We already know what that is, actually.
Spoiler for manga chapters:

Masuzu 2012-01-20 08:22

Oh you, I was ofcourse just doing some foreshadowing with the anime-only viewers in mind. :p:heh:

That Naruto vs Naruto thing felt like an afterthought because the dark Naruto never previously showed up. Seemed like a random addition to extend the plot line if you asked me.

Whether that's the case or not, it's perfectly reasonable that Naruto would have at least a bit of resentment in him after the crap he went through as a kid. And now was as good a time as any to deal with that.

he never previously showed up because only the waterfall of truth can manifest a person's hatred in this way. naruto's lingering hatred for the villagers who shunned him has always been there, just buried deep. seeing it for the first time in such a way doesn't mean that it wasn't there or is an afterthought.

we can see this hatred manifest in the demon fox cloak throughout the series: when he fought deidara and went 2 tails, when he fought orochimaru and went 4 tails and when he fought nagato and went 6 and 8 tails it was always this bit of hatred that the kyuubi latched onto. we just didnt see an anthropomorphic representation of that hatred until now

Pwnago 2012-01-20 15:59

Now this is an episode that you think it wasn't a waste of time. Next weeks episode is going to be awesome.
Trying to control a nine-tail'd beast looks really hard o.o I want to know how Killer Bee felt like when he was trying to control the Octopus.
