  • Neji vs. a spider freak

    A brilliant fight with Neji who seems to be up against the wall on his heels. Just the various concepts, techniques, and strategies employed just made this fight a brilliant chess game disguised as a ninja battle, better than Chouji's fight that utilized the usual exchanging of powerups in shounens. What I liked the most was how Kidomaru was hiding in the shadows experimenting with Neji's abilities to see if there were any holes, Neji would always one up him until Kidomaru was able to get him on his blind spot. It ended on an interesting note with Kidomaru going level 2 and sending a big arrow straight into Neji's back.
  • Neji and Kidoumaru continue their fight.

    Kidoumaru tries to finish Neji off quickly, but it almost backfires on him. His solid webbing allows Neji to run down it to him and use his Gentle Fist Jutsu. Kidoumaru is hit several times and once Neji is done and the smoke clears, Kidoumaru gets up and reveals that he had created a type of body armor at the last second. Kidoumaru knows he cannot defeat Neji in close combat and chooses to use long range attacks. He tries getting behind Neji and throwing knives at him, but Neji is able to deflect all of them. Kidoumaru is now impressed with his opponent but......
  • Neji and Kidomaru's battle rages on!

    Neji faces the spider-like Kidomaru, and the battle becomes intense! Neji also shows off his newest jutsu; the Gentle Fist: 8 Trigrams, 128 palms against Kidomaru's spiders! Neji uses a lot of chakra using the Rotation and the 64/ 128 palms techniques, causing him to be in situation too sticky to handle! Then, Kidomaru advances to the second state, making him more powerful than he was in the first state, making for an almost unbeatable opponent! Is Neji able to take down this monster? Or is Kidomaru just too strong for Neji to handle!? Another 10 out of 10 for this episode as well!
  • The Battle Continues...

    In this episode Kidomaru manages to shield himself from the attack, and flees to the safety of the neighboring trees. Deciding to attack Neji from a distance, Kidomaru advances his seal to its first level and sends multiple spiders to attack Neji. Neji is able to repel them all, though Kidomaru notices a delayed reaction in some of Neji's blocks. He theorizes that Neji's defenses has a blind spot, and attacks him further from this blind spot. His theory is proven correct as Neji is unable to block the attack. Believing himself to have found Neji's weakness, Kidomaru prepares to finish the battle. It was a great episode and I hope Neji wins. Thunder was here!!!
  • Continued: Neji vs. Spiderman!

    Dun, dun, dun, dun! The rest of the Sasuke Retrieval Squad has moved on, leaving Neji to take on Spiderman aka Kidomaru! Neji claims he is the only one who can beat him, but is it true?!? This guy looks pretty dangerous to me! I'm having to look up notes from this episode on various other websites, because when I watched it, it was Sunday morning, I was supposed to be getting ready for church, but was instead reclining in my dad's giant chair and eating leftover Olive Garden pizza. And that stuff gives me gas like you will not believe! So my memory of this episode is vague. But I do remember that they find for like freakin' ever, then Kidomaru figures out that Neji's Byakugan has to have a blind spot somewhere, and he was right, hence the episode name.
  • Go Neji!

    The battle between Neji and Spiderman wannabe, Kidomaru, continues. Kidomaru realizes that close range attacks aren't going to work so intstead he falls back and attacks from a range that Neji can't harm him from. Kidomaru is surprised when Neji finds where he is hiding so quickly and realizes how powerful the Byakugon really is. During this, Kidomaru learns that the Byakugon has a blind spot just behind Neji so he aims his attacks there, but Neji makes up for it with his Chakra. Its a close battle and things are getting heated up where Neji will be pushed to the limit!
  • Kidomaru and Neji battle heats up.

    As Neji and Kidomaru battle counties Neji hits Kidomaru with his 64 palm strike. Kidomaru releases his golden skin to protect himself at the last moment. Kidomaru realizes that he cant beat Neji in close combat so he decides to fight him at long range. Kidomaru than throws some golden spike at Neji but Neji uses his rotation to defend himself. Kidomaru goes into curse seal level 1 and summons a giant spider who releases a ton of little spiders to find a weakness in Neji eyes. Neji uses rotation to get rid of all the little spiders. However Kidomaru throws a kunai at Neji when he is slowing down but Neji counters with a surge of charka. The large spider than releases more smaller spiders and Neji uses his 64 palm strike to deal with the spiders and than his 128 palm strike. Towards the end of the 128 palm strike Kidomaru sends more kunai at Neji and hits him. Kidomaru than lets the giant spider crush Neji but Neji destroys it with a gentle fist. Kidomaru than troughs more kunai and hits Neji again. Thinking Neji is dead Kidomaru starts to leave. Neji than gets up and Kidomaru goes into curse seal level 2 and becomes more curious about Neji.
  • This is where Neji gets to show off his technique :D this was soo awsome! ^-^

    O_O ok i really liked this one because neji got to show off his technique and plus he fights Kidomaru with his 360 vision but that doesnt last long when Kidomaru finds out his weak spot and hits him with his summoning jutsu and the little spiders too lol >.< nasty little boogers! anyway..i thought it was awsome to have him show off his ying-yang sign! freakin awsome! and plus i was making cookies during this time so i was like running back and forth trying to see all of it! and then one of Kidomaru's kunai's cuts his hair band and oOo! does he look good with long hair and nothing to hold it back! ^-^
  • Neji continues to fight Kidomaru and gets injured in the process as well as Kidomaru too. The episodes are still building up to the end of the battle.

    This episode is also part of the best sequence i've seen. Neji continues to fight Kidomaru and gets injured during the process, which ,makes it even more exciting to watch. Since Neji is one of my favorite characters, i can't help but to love this episode sequence. The battle is almost over between them, but when Neji can't use his Juuken to hit the pressure points, it makes the battle harder for him, but with his 360 degree vision, it makes it difficult for Kidomaru also. But Neji has a blind spot, and gets taken advantage from that. Neji, with his hair loose, spikes in his back, and attacks coming at him left and right, begins to fall, but keeps getting back up. It looks like Kidomaru has the upper hand so far. And what's more, Kidomaru goes into stage two caused from his curse mark. But the battles not over yet.
