Was so expecting Naruto to break them out of that wire cage by dropping trow and peeing the wire soft. I could just see him doing that for some reason.

Well.. sometimes the sweat of heroes can do that to stronger-than- steel wires..
it's just something that only occurs once in 211 times.

Ahh, now this was a good episode. It was a little boring, but animations were decent and the storyline is good so far. I really like the plot that is taking place, Gangetsu protecting those children and stole money to get caught and lead his former friends into a trap. Besides from those stupid wires who broke way to easily, I liked the episode very much! I hope all these events who's building up atm will ressult in a very good episode next week with allot of cool fighting scenes, but I won't excpect anything from a filler.

I gave it a 4, a weak 4.

It seems they made Gantetsu a bit slow...it took like the second time around of Todoroki saying, they killed his brother before Gantetsu realized anything...

No way! Up until now i thought that fillers couldn't get worse and prayed for the main story to return.
This story started low and now the attraction to me couldn't be deeper. Such a low story and dumb dialogs.
i really think the animators could give it a harder try when they create a story sometimes.

nonetheless i gave this ep a 2...a very good 2.

Having to use sweat vs. wires rather than your beastial strength is a collapase of the human psyche...As usual a decent arc turns into $hit because of the horribly concieved nerfing of Naruto...Another one bites the dust...

2 stars for being slightly watchable...

Ladies and gentlemen.

The official gayest villain has made his appearance.

What were they smoking when they thought up that string ninja. Truly awful.

A few other things about this episode.

Sucking the strings.

You have to sweat on them or get them wet to loosen them??!!

Does anyone else think that sounds like some ill conceived hentai scene.

Rock Lee & Sakura mincing away at a snail pace from the little kids
.

They're ninjas for god's sake. Why didnt they just hyper speed disarm the kids??

String Cage - Rock lee gives it a good kick and it doesn't budge. Naruto just hops on it and it gives way. =z

2 Stars because now I know when the fillers end and the light at the end of the tunnel makes the remaining fillers a little more bearable.

The dumbest, lamest, and ill conceived Deus-Ex Machina I have ever seen. Seriously, to make more logic about Naruto to unfasten the cord's tightness he would have had to burn it and freeze it at constant intervals.

Given that the cord is made of steel, it would contract and expand out from the range of the balance point, and then brittle enough to be able to chew it.

But soaking it with sweat!

That was my exact reaction xD

Despite how messed up the episode was, I was rattled when it ended. I wanted to see Todoroki's reacton to Aiko xP

Lol, this episode was OK, and I use the word OK very loosely. Firstly that "Shinobazu No Monju" guy, is a major rip off, of "Ito no Kazuki" or Kazuki of the strings, from Get Backers one of the four kings of the Volt gang "Kazuki Fuuchouin".

Now as for the sweat deal, its not really sweat that caused the string to loosen and, loosen is not the correct word either.

It's more the fact liquid caused the thread to moisten hence become soft. It's... well, common sense, or science? If you take a piece of toilet paper and roll/twist it till it resembles a piece of string or thread, do the same thing 4 times and then combine it. It's allot stronger then it was right? "Together we are fortified" Sure its not SO strong to the point you can not rip it, but if you were to repeat the process 4 more times and combine those you could literally have "Rope".

Any way, my point is try adding some water to that and see how fast it rip's hell it might fall apart on its own, so the correct thing would be liquid moistening the string causing it to become softer and ripable/breakable.

Haha, @ 18:30 what the hell is that supposed to be a Tanto? I laughed so hard when I saw that, because I caught my self saying "Oh shit, is that a shank he made out of a tooth brush?!?" >_> Yea.., any way 2 star's. The end of fillers is so close I can taste it.. *drools*

The thing I don't get about the string, and sure, 0TaKuo, maybe the string loses some strength when moisened, depending on the structure and material, but why would ANYBODY use a string that can be weakened by sweat, wrap it around somebody during mid-day, and then just leave them... yeah "Oh, maybe they won't sweat any if I leave them out here for 10 minutes in the sun."

We all saw what he could do to a BOAT with that string in seconds! Yet he leaves a ninja and trained guard/soldier/whatever in a situation that could be solved with a natural, immanent procedure like sweating.

2 stars for storyline predictability and idiotic strategies.

Yup, sweating to loosen STEEL wires is just plain dorky. And that Monju guy's color scheme is just too garish. Pink, teal, purple, red, pah! I thought Naruto was the worst dressed shinobi, but this guy's even worse.

What's more, you know the uniform Todoroki's wearing? It's that of Manchu feudal-era soldier. JAPANESE medieval-era soldiers don't even wear these. This is another reason NOT to have an animation studio staffed with Koreans, especially imported Korean skilled labour who just can't never get used to Japanese history and culture.

A half-assed one. If the poll had negative scores, I would have chosen those. I would prefer watching Kakashi copy Naruto's Harem no Jutsu than watching this crap (maybe 0taku0 would like this too, heh-heh).

P.S. From the canon material about Naruto, I know Sakura and Lee wouldn't have the heart to even hurt kids, but I wished the two of them could have given those orphans a thumping.

I see you switched back to the previous signature, 0taku0. Have to say it's better than the one after it.
