  • From fearsome pirahnas & sharks to gravitating magnets!

    This was a pretty good action packed episode. We see Choji, Naruto and Yurinojou fight off Ruiga, who seems to be quite the fearsome opponent. Summoning pirahnas in water that's in mid-air, and then summoning a shark. We know these two kinds of fishes are pretty dangerous, now take that up to 11 when they're practically on land!

    We also meet Jiga, a big guy that ingested a lot of iron as a kid and now has an ability to magnetize anything and himself. It's not as colorful as the real Magnet Release techniques, but it still is pretty good. A good one-sided battle goes on with Naruto and Jiga, Naruto is albeit surprised at his opponent's abilities to not react efficiently especially if he does not know his opponent at all and goes off without thinking.

    The animation was pretty good so far in both battles, better than some of the earlier episodes in the last season.moreless
  • Some more stuff...

    Due to the excessive ammount of homework and other stress related objects, I can't remember a single detail about this episode. But now I have a problem. I've vowed to write a review for every Naruto episode. How am I supposed to do that if I can't remember the episode? I really don't know. So I'm going to ramble on for a bit, and I hope you guys understand and don't report me, because I've been getting enough grief from the Disney FANS (I've been forbidden by the mods to refer to them as Groupees) and I really don't need any from the Naruto peoples either. Well, I've reached 100 words, I guess I can stop rambling now. Peace out!moreless
  • Naruto, Choji, and Yurinojou defeat Ruiga.

    Naruto has just been trapped in some sort of water bubble and is now being attacked by some kind of piranha that were summoned by Ruiga. Choji shows up in the nick of time and frees Naruto from the trap. Choji then tries to attack Ruiga but is stopped by another water shield. Naruto decides that now is the time for a tactical retreat. As they run, Yurinojou and Naruto come up with a plan to defeat Ruiga. They realize that all his attacks are based on water, so they lead him to an area that is without water. Just before they make it there....moreless
  • Nice episode.

    Hinata got decieved so easily by the so called princess. She only cares about herself. i'm shocked to see one of the other brothers, Jiga killed his youngest brother. He does seem stronger. With a jutsu that can control magnetic polarity and a magnetic mace. Its up to Hinata to finiish him.
  • Naruto, Choji and the Flower Ninja attack the Water-justsu ninja.

    Another installement in the Flower-country-needs-help arc. Naruto seems not to know his strength b.c he seems not to remember all of the awesome moves he has learned over the past 8 seasons! I mean come on, use the summoning jutsu! Get some Frogs to help you battle! But seriously, its a decent filler episode but if your like me, you really dont care about this episode, your just waiting for the Main Plot to be brought back. So Naruto can learn some new moves from Jirayia! Heck ya and be like his ol\' man, the 4th Hokage.moreless

  • QUOTES (27)

    • Jiga: While I was growing up, I drank iron every single day. Thanks to that, I have plenty of metal floating around in my body that I can use as a magnet whenever I want. And in case you hadn't noticed, this mountain is full of iron. As long as I fight you here, I'm invincible.
      Naruto: So you're a walking magnet, huh?
      Jiga: That's one way to put it, but I also have the ability to magnetize the things I touch.

    • Jiga: This is your tomb, hope you like it.
      Naruto: Nah, ain't my style. You can use it instead.

    • Naruto: I guess you're the second Jonin then.
      Jiga: Well gosh, to think that a great ninja like you knows about little ol' me. You're lucky, it's an honor getting destroyed by Jiga. Definitely something you can brag about in the afterlife.

    • Jiga: You're reflexes are pretty good, kid. I see how you could beat Ruiga.

    • Hinata: This isn't the mission we were sent out to perform. What if we can't handle the other two? Maybe we aren't good enough.
      Naruto: Good point. You're right, Hinata, this isn't the mission we came out here to do. But the princess, she's running for her life, doing the best she can, and now she's doing it by herself. Yeah, she's bossy and mean and acts like the world revolves around her. I know, but what kind of person would just write her off?

    • Hinata: Maybe we should head back to the Hidden Leaf and ask the Hokage what to do about this.
      Naruto: No! We don't have time to go ask for advice. There are still two more of these evil ninja punks running around. And if the princess gets caught by either of them, they're gonna snuff her out!

    • Hinata: Where's the princess?
      Naruto: Beats the heck out of me. I was about to ask you.
      Hinata: I said let's wait for the others, then I turned away and then...
      Naruto: How'd you let an amateur get close enough to clobber you in the back of the head?
      Hinata: I'm... I'm sorry.

    • Jiga: Well, don't you look fierce down there in the dirt.
      Ruiga: Jiga, ya gotta help me. I'm your brother.
      Jiga: Doesn't matter to me. 'Cause with you out of the picture, instead of me getting a third, Renga and I can split the profits in half.
      Ruiga: But Jiga...
      Jiga: It's nothin' personal.
      Ruiga: Wait, you gotta listen to me...

    • Hinata: What do you know about Naruto? You don't get to stand here and judge him like that! At least you had a mom and dad; Naruto's an orphan. He lives all by himself, totally alone. He's worked hard to gain everyone's acceptance and become the next Hokage, giving it his all. He's had a difficult life himself, but he would never think of sacrificing somebody else for his own well being. You know why? Because he's a good person, and a good ninja too!

    • Haruna: Hinata, you can't imagine the things I've been through; taken from my parents and held as hostage in a foreign land, bullied night and day. But that suffering has taught me a valuable lesson, I realized when I was just a child anyone foolish enough to put their faith in people deserves whatever they get.

    • Naruto: He threw a shark at the wrong ninja.
      Choji: Yeah!

    • Choji: I've got a lot of water weight now, so this one's gonna hurt!

    • Ruiga: Fight's over, time to eat. Our special for tonight: raw shinobi.

    • Yurinojou: We can't outrun them forever!
      Naruto: Ya think?! Guess we'll have to beat him up after all.
      Choji: Great! How? Nothing we've tried has even hurt this guy a little!

    • Ruiga: Better not slow down, my pets haven't been fed for a very long time.

    • Naruto: So how do we beat a ninjutsu that never runs out? Maybe we'd better...
      Choji: Run really fast!
      Naruto: It's called a tactical retreat!

    • Ruiga: (Chuckles) Shouldn't play with fire, somebody could get hurt.

    • Choji: No fair!
      Ruiga: Isn't water amazing? Whatever you throw my way, this bubble will protect me from the impact. In here, my defense is ironclad.
      Choji: That is kinda cool.

    • Yurinojou: Thank goodness! You're just in the nick of time.
      Choji: Oh yeah! Hey, Naruto, are you okay down there?
      Naruto: (Sarcastically) Never better. You saved my life just in time to crush me to death.
      Choji: Just doing my job, man.

    • Naruto: Why would you, a ninja, be fooled like that?
      Hinata: I-I'm sorry.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Right now we should...
      Choji: Run away?
      Naruto: No, fall back!

      ~Japanese version

    • Ruiga: After a bonfire, you have to put the fire out.

      ~Japanese version

    • Ruiga: This water will absorb all kinds of attacks and give me the perfect defense.
      Choji: Oh really?

      ~Japanese version

    • Hinata: Naruto? Where's the princess?!
      Naruto: That was supposed to be my line.

      ~Japanese version

    • (After Hinata and the pricess have stopped)
      Hinata: I understand. Let's wait for everyone here.
      Princess: There's no need to wait. After resting just a bit more, you need to take me to a safe place
      Hinata: But Naruto's group is still...
      Princess: That kind of thing doesn't matter.

      ~Japanese version

    • Choji: (Bloated with water) I'm full.

      ~Japanese version

    • (Choji squashes Naruto to save him)
      Choji: Are you okay, Naruto?
      Naruto: I'm fine, but I`m not okay with your weight!

  • NOTES (7)


    • The episode has several allusions to dowsing, an ancient technique that practitioners claim can help locate underground sources of water. The idea is that dowsers can sense electromagnetic currents raised by water underground through their body which causes a jerking motion in the instrument (usually some type of bent wood or metal rod or a pendulum). Dowsing is regarded by the scientific community as a pseudo-science, with little or no valid scientific data backing it, but its practitioners still fervently advocate its authenticity.
