  • Another end to a mediocre filler arc.

    6.0
    The fights themselves were sort of entertaining in a way; Kyubi Naruto was great to see. Wish he would have stayed longer than just like 30 seconds, because his little session of beating up on Amachi was the best use of productions I've seen since Naruto's fight with Sasuke, sad considering that happened 40 episodes ago. The little senseless quarrels Boss Gama had with Naruto were a bit annoying though, you wish some of these characters would actually take a fight seriously. This alone would have just made the episode average, but then it drags on for another ten minutes. Anko's flashback dragged itself for too long, and Isaribi's change of heart is the typical Hollywood transformation of a confused villain turned good. Hopefully the next episode is a Naruto slice of life instead of these sad attempts of an action arc.moreless
  • Isaribi comes to her senses. Of course. *eye roll*

    Don't get me wrong, I love Naruto, and 95% of everything that goes on in the show. The 5% I DO NOT approve of mostly has something to do with Kishimoto waiting until now to tell us Itachi wasn't really evil and that SasuSaku will probably never be. Oh shut up about Itachi, you were bound to hear it sooner or later. Anyway, after making one of his world infamous speeches, Naruto passes out and almost drowns AGAIN. And Isaribi comes to her senses, of course, they always do, and has to save Naruto. Of course she can't, because she's just a fishy girl and fishy girls can't do anything. So Anko shows up and saves the day. And Shino kills Yoroi, who is super ugly, even more so when he's compared with the GORGEOUS Misumi, who Ino had to kill. :( And then they all climb into a boat, Isaribi included. They also took Amachi prisoner for haveing contact with Lord Orochimaru, who Anko is still on the hunt for. Naruto says that Lady Tsunade will have Isaribi fixed up in no time. And after some comments made on the boat, I can see why some people support NaruIno. I'm still partial to NaruHina, and I used to like ShikaIno before I decided I liked ShikaTema and ChoIno better. Although ShinoIno is fine with me too. Maybe even KibaIno?moreless
  • This episode totally ruled and rocked and it was also funny.

    What I liked about this episode was that when Naruto summoned his 9 tailed fox and broke and started to attack Amachi and it was cool how Isaribi realized that they are both alike and she saved him when he was drowing after doing the nine tailed fox. When Naruto summoned Gamabunta he had a rash and was around like crazy and he splashed Ino. It was cool how Naruto figured out how too lit the paper bomb kunai on fire and Gamabunta spit oil from his mouth and defeated the sea monster creature. We find out more about Anko's past with Orochimaru. And another funny part was when Naruto wanted to punch Amachi but Anko stopped him and punched him herself and Naruto started complaining about it.moreless
  • Naruto summons Gamabunta to battle the Sea Demon

    Naruto has just unleashed the power of the Nine Tailed Fox. He charges at the monster, Amachi and dodges all his attacks. Naruto punches Amichi into the air and Amichi falls into the water. Naruto is now exhausted and falls into the water. Isaribi jumps in and brings him to dry land. Amichi tries to get away, but Anko catches him. Yoroi is about to jimp on Shino when Ino uses her Mind Destruction jutsu and causes him to miss. Yoroi gets angry and charges at Ino, but just before he can get to her, Shino's bugs get him. Then all of a sudden...moreless
  • Sweet Ending!

    So we find out who is a monster and thanks to Naruto, what a monster is. I wonder what Tsunade could do to help that girl...probably not much.

    I'd have to say that the best thing about this arc is Anko's flashbacks. As she was regaining her memory this entire time, she found out the truth about her past. Her flashbacks were the most enjoyable part of it all. The last one with Anko finding out that she could have gone with Orochimaru but chose not to was the most awesomest one. So now we know that Anko wasn't abandoned but actually chose her own path. She chose the right path and Orochimaru targeted others who lived for revenge and chose hatred over goodness. Sasuke should've been like Anko. Go Anko!moreless

    • Naruto: All right! We're headed back to the Hidden Leaf Village again.
      Ino: Seriously, you've been spinning like a top from start to finish on this journey. Don't you know the meaning of the word tired?
      Naruto: Okay, what's that supposed to mean?
      Ino: It's a compliment. You really came through.
      Naruto: Wait, for real? Go on, you're embarrassing me.

    • Anko: Hey! Come on! What's the hold up? The boat's about to shove off.
      Ino: When did she...?
      Naruto: What's the matter with you? We've just been standing around waitin' for ya!
      Anko: Oh, sorry 'bout that.

    • Naruto: Hey you guys, how come Anko is missing in action?
      Ino: There was no sign of her when I woke up. Just a note saying she'd be back in a bit.
      Naruto: What's her deal? Can't she sit still for like one second?
      Ino: There's the pot calling the kettle black.

    • Anko: (Referring to Orochimaru leaving her) But why? How could you do this? I don't get it, I've looked up to you more than anyone in the world.
      Orochimaru: You simply didn't measure up my dear. I'm afraid you lack the hunger for power, the drive, the hatred, everything and anything. Although, you didn't die (From the curse mark). To make it this far, you can't be totally useless. Well, how 'bout it, care to accompany me then?

    • Anko: Now, I think it's about time you told me. Orochimaru, where do I find him?
      Amachi: You really think I know where he is? (Anko tightens the ropes holding him) The man tossed you aside and yet you still search for him? You and I are nothing alike. With my research on this island, I would have eventually surpassed him.
      Anko: Oh, really? (Punches Amachi in the face)
      Naruto: Hey, how come you got to sock him?!

    • Amachi: What's wrong with you, Isaribi? Take care of these fools now!
      Isaribi: I'm done with you.
      Amachi: Are you forgetting? I'm the only person who can give you back your humanity.
      Isaribi: I don't care. If I keep this up, I'll be nothing but a monster at heart.
      Naruto Yeah, I knew you'd finally come around. Well said.

    • Naruto: Please, these warts have been here as long as I've known ya.
      Gamabunta: Keep pushin' me kid. You're on thin enough ice as it is. Don't make it worse.
      Naruto: Huh? Now wait a second, let's just talk about this!
      Gamabunta: I'm done talking. (Throws Naruto far up into the air) Ugh, everything itches. You deserve a lot worse, but I'll let you off with a slap on the wrist this time for all the trouble my boys have caused ya.

    • (They defeat the sea monster)
      Naruto: We got him chief!
      Gamabunta: A walk in the park.
      Naruto: That's right, big guy. You put us together and we're unstoppable.
      Gamabunta: I hate to rain on your parade, but I think you might be forgetting something.
      Naruto: Huh? I don't follow ya?
      Gamabunta: Ya plopped me down in the middle of the ocean, ya dum dum. Look at this, my skin's a catastrophe!

    • Gamabunta: Well pipsqueek, I hope you have a plan, because I'm itchin'.
      Naruto: What? Are you kiddin' me? Nobody's tougher than you. Don't tell me a little salt water's gonna hold ya back!
      Amachi: Heh. You're a disgrace kid. You can't even control the creature you summoned up.
      Naruto: What was that?
      Amachi: You'd better send him on his way, and quick too, before the sea monster swallows him and he shrivels up like a slug.
      Gamabunta: Did you just call me a slug? All right Naruto, you're in for a world of hurt when we're finished, but I'm gonna lend you a hand.

    • Ino: Don't come over here, Naruto! No! Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa! (Naruto rides Gamabunta and pases close by splashing water) You little nimrod! I'm going to tear you apart limb from limb when this mission is over!

    • (Naruto passes out into the water after using the Nine-Tailed Fox's chakra)
      Anko: Naruto!
      Isaribi: I've got him. (Jumps in after Naruto)
      Anko: (Thinking) Well, whadda ya know?

    • Amachi: (Referring to Naruto) Bit of a monster yourself, eh? Maybe you shouldn't be pointing fingers.

    • Anko: (Thinking) I wasn't cast aside. It was my choice, and mine alone.

    • Gamabunta: Trouble follows you around, kid, or do you go looking for it?

    • Shino: Never turn your back on the enemy. The most basic rule of combat. You cost yourself the battle.

    • Orochimaru: Somewhere out there is the diamond in the rough I am looking for.

    • Gamabunta: Don't mess with an amphibian, less you suffer his wrath!

    • Anko: Looks like I caught me a big one, huh?

    • Gamabunta: Naruto, I'll lend you a hand for now, but I'm going to smack you around afterwards.

      ~Japanese version

    • Gamabunta: Look! I'm covered in warts now!
      Naruto: You've always been covered in warts...
      Gamabunta: Shut up! You shall receive your punishment with interest!

      ~Japanese version

    • Amachi: What are you doing, Isaribi? You've got to fight him!
      Isaribi: I don't want to.
      Amachi: Did you forget? The only person who can return you to your human form is me!
      Isaribi: At this rate, even my heart will turn into a monster.

      ~Japanese version

    • Anko: I wasn't abandoned. I chose... I chose it myself.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Jeez! She's really a person who can't sit still!
      Ino: I can't believe you're saying that...
