  • The start of a puzzle-busting, brain game for everyone, Arc

    Finally, a big S-Ranked mission with all 11 of Konoha together to find information and track down stolen blueprints that an infamous trap master had taken. Everyone except the Genin and Chunin left the village to patrol the country borders and watch for potential intruders. Everyone has their mission. Whoever is best suited for a certain part of it left. Shikamaru is showing his worth on how good a leader he is. This is his moment, his Arc. The old man Gennou has something to hide, and it looks like Naruto is in a mountain of trouble now that the ANBU have arc is a puzzler for everyone to try and work together in a best way possible. I love things like this.
  • Enter: The Konoha 11!!!

    Well, this is my first review on the new layout. I hope I don't screw it up too bad. So anyway, this episode begins the series's Konoha 11 Arc. It would've been Konoha 12, but as we all know, a certain Uchiha boy had to leave at the last minute in order to avenge his clan... OK, so my point is, some dude named Gennou who was working as Tsunade's carpenter stole the blueprints to her mansion, and then totally obliterates himself. :O Naruto takes the news pretty critically, because he was Gennou's friend. So Tsunade recruits Shikamaru to get a team and go after the stolen documents. His team? None other than the rookies, of course!!! Oh, and Guy's team too. :P Together, they form... *drum roll* The Konoha 11!!! He complains that it's not enough men, but she sends him out anyway. Oh, and in case you don't know who the Konoha 11 members are, they are Naruto, Sakura, Kiba, Hinata, Shino, Shikamaru, Ino, Choji, Neji, Tenten, and Lee. And if you're puzzled as to why Sasuke is not included, it's because he took off shortly before the filler arcs began. Good gravey, if you don't know that, you must have been hiding under a rock this whole time!!!
  • The blueprints for key buildings in the village are stolen.

    The Hidden Leaf Village is still rebuilding after the attack by Orochimaru and the Sand Village. Due to a shortage of carpendars, they have to hire outside help. One of them is Gennou and he befriends Naruto and they enjoy going to the ramen stand for a meal. Naruto does not realize, but he is a spy who later that night creates a diversion and steals the blueprints for the important buildings of the Hidden Leaf Village. The ANBU Black Ops are able to track him down, but when they attempt to arrest him, he appears to blow himself up. Tsunade issues a S level alert for the village and....
  • It seems to be the start of a good filler arc

    The thing that seems to be really unique about this episode is the fact that all the genin ninja (plus Shikamaru) are in on this mission together. Granted, it's a rather large mission so many people are needed, but still. I look forward to see the fighting, however this is only the beginning of the arc so they're still searching for clues. Chouji's food obsessed behavior is funny. The opening and ending changed to include stuff from the Naruto movie, I think it's the first. From what I see it looks lame, don't know if I'd want to watch it. I guess I can't make a decision based on some clips from the opening I suppose.
  • Kohona 11 hasent that been done already like for example Kohona five.

    Here is another filler review cant wait to see what i have to say Kohona 11 hasent that been done already like for example Kohona five. I am dissapointed at the effort they made to redo another kohona five arc sorry not working now i am going to go cr because of all the fillers and their pointless stories.

    p.s This episode sucks this season sucks and pretty much all of these fillers suck
  • i liked it a lot! it was good.

    Naruto meets an old man, a construction worker named Gennou . But when Gennou steals plans for some of the building in Konoha, he is pursued by the ANBU. It turns out Gennou is actually an expert Trap User ninja and was listed in the Bingo Book. After Gennou blows himself up with exploding tags strapped to his chest, the plans go missing. Fearing an invasion of Konoha from whoever hired Gennou, Tsunade asks Shikamaru to have himself and the ten Konoha Genin to keep an eye on things. When they can't find information from anybody, there is only one person who might be able to give them the information that they need...Naruto.
  • A surprisingly good filler.

    For a filler, I was surprised at how good this was. It also has the potential to be a great arc. The blueprints from the head carpenters mansion are stolen and hidden. If found by the enemy, the results could be devestating. All 11 Konoha shinobi are gathered to search for them. If carried out well, this could prove to be an excellent arc, filler or not. However, Naruto and Chouji doubt that the accused actually stole the blueprints, as they were friends. At the end of the episode, the ANBU turn up to question Naruto.

    Over all, it is an interesting that certainly has the potential to be a great arc, even though all the fillers get tiring after a while.
  • For now this episode is interesting.

    At night, the ANBU searched for a ninja who stole the blueprints to Konoha. ANBU found him but the man blew himself up. Its later reviled that this ninja is a famous trapper. In the morning, Tsunade sent all the Jonins to the border of the village. Shikamaru stayed to get all 11 genins. Together, they all decided to look for the blueprints. It is also reviled that the Trapper is the old man Naruto befriended. Suddenly ANBU arrives to ask Naruto some questions.
