  • I missed most of this one.

    I know I promised to write a review for every Naruto episode, but I had this on in the background when I was working on my book report, so I don't fully know the episode. Here is what it says on wikipedia. Please don't report me.

    Naruto is having trouble with the two brothers, and Iruka is having his share of difficulties with Mizuki. Iruka struggles to try and get the old Mizuki back, but Mizuki explains the only reason he was ever nice to Iruka was because he wanted to be the Hokage's favorite too. He wanted Iruka to be miserable, and not to have everyone else be so kind to Iruka and not himself. Iruka and Mizuki then prepare to fight again. Meanwhile, after many shadow clone attacks, Naruto finally has a chance to use Rasengan. The brothers accidentally destroy their lunch and make Naruto's attack hit his doppelgangers. As they prepare to kill him, Shikamaru, Choji, and Ino come to the rescue.moreless
  • Nothing great.

    Although the fighting here was mildly entertaining for the fact that we actually get to see Iruka in action for once, and the Idiot brothers always offer some entertainment for their sheer idiocy and childlike approach to fighting they have, it was killed by some lackluster aesthetics and the fact that it switched between Mizuki-Iruka and Naruto-Idiot brothers fights. It was at least smart and kind of tactical, but some scenes felt too dragged out and the fact that both fights take up the entire episode is an indication. The representation of Mizuki's and Iruka's past relationship as kids wasn't really well executed at all, and seeing them stroll down through the woods holding hands was disturbing.moreless
  • Naruto finds out how strong Fuujin and Raijin are.

    Naruto uses his shadow clones to attack Fuujin and Raijin with no effect. Meanwhile Iruka and Mizuki are locked in combat. Mizuki runs off and challenges Iruka to follow and defeat him. Naruto runs out of clones and Pakkun jumps in and tells him to leave Fuujin and Raijin alone and focus on Mizuki. They take off after him and Fuujin and Raijin think that everyone is playing hide and seek. Naruto is going through the forest when Raijin appears above him and knocks him to the ground. Mizuki has led Iruka to a bamboo grove and starts to sneak up on Iruka...moreless
  • Naruto is still try to bring back Mzuki to prison but theres trouble with the 2 brothers.

    Here Naruto's mission was to bring Mizuki back to the leafs correctional facility, but he has trouble with the two brothers MIzuki brang alon they are more powerful then Naruto thought because of that problem it will ake him a litttle longer than he had hoped it would take him. Fujn and Rajin think this is all a game like when Naruto tries to run-away they think it is really a game of Hide and go seek which they ar mad because they were it without playing rock papaer scissors first which they believe they should. Also Iruka still seems to have alot of trouble with Mizuki since childhood they have been friends and Mizuki was the stronger one than the rest in the group. So Iruka i having a hard time letting that go that they were comrades and tells Mizuki its not to late to turn back and pay for his mistakes.moreless
  • Next episode is sure to be good.

    As I said I think the next episode will be good a ton better than this one. This was like a follow up to the next one. All that happened in this episode was pretty much basic fighting between Mizuki and Iruka and some childhood memories. And Naruto getting his butt kicked around by the Legendary Stupid Brothers. It was kind of funny when Rasengan failed him. I really can't wait for the episode now. Ino-Shika-Cho! Now to take up this space... yeah. I guess Ton Ton saved them after all getting help and reinforcements from Tsunade. So yeah great episode still not the best.moreless
