Wow, that episode wasn't excellent pff, Kisame didn't even put a fight, but I guess he was too weak to challenge Gai, as he ran out of Chakra anyway :/, but oh well ^_^
Next week episode seems promising haha :) Can't wait I guess.. Wonder if the Shark actually does get to Madara/Tobi heh

ookamigirl 2012-02-23 12:26

Well, we did find out what Kisame's background was like..
It wasn't too hard to make him join Akatsuki.
His end was not pretty though.
Our little group didn't accomplish much this time either.
Interesting episode.

Alright, things start to pick up greatly starting from the next episode :)

Why did Itachi activate his MS in the flashback?

neshru 2012-02-23 13:54

To show Kisame who's the boss.

Arjento 2012-02-23 15:26

Quick question.

Is next weeks ep a double?

Jerseykid 2012-02-23 15:32

for some reason I feel like this match up they are previewing should have happened before all this other stuff.

I'm pretty sure it isn't.

itachi-san314 2012-02-23 17:31

great episode! not one of the best, but they did just about as good a job as possible with the manga storyline for kisame. I remember it being disappointing in the manga, but now that it's settled in for me I really enjoyed this episode. it seems like they sacrificed the timing of last week's episode so that this one could be as good as possible

FBZ 2012-02-23 17:53

episode was very meh for me, next week looks promising but there's no way she'll win the fight lol

The scrolls from back in the Chuunin Exam arc were trapped too. I'm surprised no
one thought to check the Akatsuki scroll for traps before opening it.

octaviahawk 2012-02-24 01:09

Wow, Kisame just owned those ninja, even postmortem. Why the f#ck are these ninja so dumb?

Like so many Naruto characters, Kisame did not live past his flashback. Goodbye, shark man, you died for a good cause: furthering the plot. *sniff sniff*

HelpeRX 2012-02-24 06:53

This episode was amazing, I really loved it. Itachi's philosophy was so true that no matter how well you think you know yourself until the brink of death you really wont know what type of person you really are. EPIC. Kisame was like itachi did you find out who you were and kisame realized wow I really wasnt a bad person. I loved it RESPECT

HasuMasu 2012-02-24 07:23

Next week is going to be so boss.


Kafriel 2012-02-24 11:07

Pretty damn good episode, Kisame lived a hard live and died a less than decent death...just as Itachi had told him.

Gai: Let's see what's in the scroll....
-sharks jump out-


Next week's twenty minutes of awesome await...

xKeir 2012-02-25 01:36

I think Kisame's life really speaks of how screwed the Ninja world is :3 On one hand if he leaked the code but saved his comrades [He can't save all of them] more people would die depending on the severity of the information leaked and lost. If he killed his comrades to protect the code to prevent further damage he too is screwed.

~_~ Life as a Shinobi.

And i'm sure he's not the only one like that. People from villages like Konoha would do that too!

Anywho. Everyone got trolled when the scroll w/ information was leaked despite all that happened.

And i particularly liked the part where Naruto said that 'So there's people in the Akatsuki who would give their lives for their comrades too huh ...'

That part imo was well said ...

godlystriker 2012-02-25 06:17

I felt a little empty from this episode. I don't know what to say, about Kisame's life, about Itachi's life.

(And not because its a bad episode, which is not!)
