  • The Tunguska Event of Naruto!

    A strange meteor falls from the sky and blows up before reaching the ground annihilating everything in its wake. It has strange energy that affects those around it. The villagers take upon themselves to grow with it and become powerful shinobi using it. Though it seems there might be something wrong with this. Though it is an artful type of chakra, able to be created into what the user wants it to. Whether its a peacock, a badger-like beast, even wings to fly! Quite an awesome way to get around.

    This Arc was one of my top favorites in the series. Subaru (dub name is Sumaru, but he's named is an interesting guy, comparable to a normal Sasuke though friendlier it seems. I liked him and his concept, wished he could appear in the later series. Come on Masashi, he deserves proper recognition!moreless
  • *sigh* here we go again.

    The first Naruto filler arc that actually opens up halfway decent. Although it has Naruto in a three man team to some ridiculous sounding village name, at least the concept of the star giving the entire village supreme power is a bit interesting; much more interesting than the crap that has been fed to us in the past. As usual we go through our daily course of Naruto getting to know some misunderstood emo child of the village, they get attacked and Naruto engages in a low budget fight that also ignites some deadly, yet predictable conspiracy. The only difference? The star chakra thing is at least a bit interesting, and if it weren't for that, this watch would have been a whole notch lower.moreless
  • Naruto, Neji, Lee, and Tenten journey to Hoshigakure...

    Forgive me if the Japanese name of the Village Hidden in the Stars is not Hoshigakure. I thought I would see if I could get it right without looking it up. OK, so this Star Village sends a message to Tsunade saying they want her to send shinobi so they can protect their star thingy. So she sends Guy's team. Naruto wants to go too, so he bribes Tsunade with a candy bar, and he gets added to the team. Some Hokage she is! *rolls eyes* Well anyway, Naruto goes on ahead of the rest o the squad and nearly gets killed by poison gas leaking out of a ravine. He is saved by Sumaro, some Star brat. But a very CUTE Star brat!!! ^_^ Team Guy catches up to Naruto, and Sumaro takes them across the ravine to the Star Village. Naruto and Sumaro spend some time together, and apparently they share equal dreams. Naruto wants to be Hokage, and Sumaro wants to be Hoshikage. There really is no such thing as Hoshikage, but them Star brats is darn stubborn. Forgive me, it's my Hoosier accent come back to haunt me. Anyway, then some goon comes along and kidnaps the Star Village's star. And he uses some jutsu that can only be obtained from studying in the Star Village!!! :O How will Naruto figure this oen out?!?moreless
  • Naruto, Neji, Lee, and Tenten go to the Land of Stars.

    Well another filler, but it doesn't seem too bad. Neji, Lee, and Tenten are assigned a mission to protect a star in the land of stars. The star was said to have fallen 10 years ago and gives off some special chakra or something. Of course Naruto tags along and they all go to the Land of Stars. While Naruto is about to cross over a canyon that leads to the Land of Stars, a guy in a gas mask attacks him. Naruto fights back but then discovers that the guy didn't want to hurt him but was protecting him from the trench below that was filled with poison gas. The guy later unmasks himself and says his name is Sumaru. They enter the Land of Stars and talk to the leader of the village (I think). He further explains things to them, but then Sumaru interrupted him and said that he was going to be HoshiiKage one day, then he was told to go out and train. Naruto meets up with him and tells him that he wants to be HoKage one too! Later, the star they were supposed to protect was stolen by a mysterious person, who had the same technique that the ninja from the Land of Stars had. Naruto tried to stop him but he got away.moreless
  • Another new mission begins, this time in the Village Hidden In The Stars.

    Naruto learns from Sakura about a mysterious star that hit the Hidden Star Village about 200 years ago. Naruto doesn't believe it a first, but Sakura tells him that it is true. After bribing Tsunade to go on the mission, Naruto catches up with Neji, Lee, and Tenten, who were already assigned the mission. Naruto then meets an enemy who has the power of the Ninja Art: Kujaku. After Neji and the others catch up to Naruto, Naruto learns that the masked enemy was a ninja of the Hidden Star Village named Sumaru. The team then meets up Akihoshi, the deputy to the Hoshikage. Their mission is to protect the star from other enemies. After a while the meet up with another enemy who had the same power as the other Star Ninja. This enemy stole the star, defeated Naruto, and made his escape. It there seems to be more to this village than meets the eye. And who's this mysterious thief? What will happen next? Another 10 out of 10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the dub, when Sumaro said he was going to become the Hoshikage, Naruto said that he would become Hokage too, as in also. However, they are not the same thing. Naruto should have said "I'm going to be a kage too" or "I'm going to be Hokage".

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Sumaru: He's gone.
      Naruto: I almost took him down, but then...
      Sumaru: It's my fault for agreeing to let you try.
      Naruto: What's going on? That jerk used the exact same ninja art as you. Want to tell me what's really going on?
      Sumaru: That ninja art... Only a star trained ninja could know it.
      Naruto: You mean that guy was from the Village Hidden in the Stars?
      Sumaru: I can't be sure.

    • Sumaru: Over there is the training area where the star is enshrined.
      Naruto: Well let's go. I'm dying to see it.
      Sumaru: Never! No one from a foreign land is allowed beyond this point.
      Naruto: The star is the point of the mission. How are we supposed to protect the thing if we can't even get close to it?
      Sumaru: You're foreigners. We can't just leave you with something so sacred.
      Naruto: Man, you really are paranoid, you know that, pal.

    • Sumaru: The more power you draw from it, the more hard work and skill you need to control it!
      Naruto: Yeah, but...
      Sumaru: And that's what I'm going to do, nothing but hard work. I will become the Hoshikage!
      Naruto: Great. I can't wait to work with ya.
      Sumaru: Huh?
      Naruto: 'Cause I'm going to become Hokage of my village too.

    • Sumaru: What do you want from me anyway?
      Naruto: Who me? Ah, nothing in particular. I just realized I never thanked you before, you know.
      Sumaru: Don't try to act nice with me, foreigners are all the same. They're all trying to get to our star. They think if they can get its power, they can rise above the other hidden villages.

    • Naruto: Hey, wait up! I want to ask you something. (Runs after Sumaru)
      Lee: N-Naruto?!
      Tenten: Where are you going? There he goes again.

    • Akahoshi: I am Akahoshi, and I serve as deputy Hoshikage of this village.
      Tenten: Deputy? But then...
      Akahoshi: The Third Hoshikage passed on quite suddenly a year ago, so presently, our village finds itself without a true leader.
      Neji: But I thought that only leader of the five great villages could be called Kage?
      Naruto: Yeah.
      Sumaru: That makes no difference. The people of this village are inferior to no one. We may be small, but one day this village will rival those of the five great lands. And when that day comes, I will be Hoshikage.

    • Neji: The border canyon of the Land of Bears is eternally filled with poison gas. The fog acts as a barrier against foreign invaders
      Tenten: Whoa, so this was the danger you warned us about, huh?
      Lee: You should be grateful, Naruto. It looks like Sumaru truly saved your life. It is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Leaf and Star.
      Naruto: Whatever, I didn't need his help.
      Sumaru: I didn't have to help you, you know. I could have just stood there watching as you perished.

    • Naruto: Hey ya, fellas! I'm gonna get goin', see ya there!
      Neji: Naruto, hold on! No way.
      Lee: Um, what is Naruto doing on this mission anyway?
      Neji: No idea.

    • Shizune: Lady Tsunade! We just received word that Naruto has joined up with Neji's team.
      Tsunade: (Muffled) Yes, I added him to the mission at the last minute.
      Shizune: But why?
      Tsunade: (Muffled) Those four did well at the Katabame gold mine. Besides, while he's gone, I can relax.
      Shizune: You would change the lineup of an established squad on a whim? (Tsunade starts choking) Lady Tsunade! Is that a rare chestnut bean jelly with gold leaf candy? (Thinking) Wait a second, did Naruto bribe her with that?
      Tsunade: (Choking) Tea! I need tea!

    • Naruto: (Thinking) Mysterious power, huh? Sounds like something Orochimaru would want to get his hands on. (Aloud) Okay, looks like I'll be goin' with them.
      Sakura: What? You can't! The three-man squad's already been chosen.
      Naruto: Yeah, but I got an ace up my sleeve.

    • Naruto: Why is a place that tiny being attacked?
      Sakura: You don't know? It all started two hundred years ago, when a shooting star hit the village.
      Naruto: (Nearly chokes) You mean like a star in the sky, not a throwing star, right?
      Sakura: Yep. And according to legend, the star has a mysterious power that can affect chakra.

    • Sakura: Apparently they decided to form a three man squad with Neji as team leader.
      Naruto: But the Village Hidden in the Stars is a full-on shinobi village, isn't it? Why do they need us? Can't they handle security themselves?
      Sakura: Well, sometimes a smaller village will strengthen relations by coordinating with its allies militarily, and in this case their village is smaller than most. They probably don't have enough ninja to protect it.

    • Sumaru: You know, you're kinda weird.
      Naruto: You think?

    • Sumaru: You're a weird guy, aren't you?
      Naruto: Is that so?

      ~Japanese version

    • Shizune: Don't tell me that was from Naruto.

      ~Japanese version

    • Lee: Um, why is Naruto here?
      Neji: Like I know.

      ~Japanese version

    • Sakura: That star influences chakra and has mysterious powers.
      Naruto: (Laughing) That's just superstition!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Why is a place that small being targeted?
      Sakura: That's because, about two hundred years ago, a star fell into the village.
      Naruto: You don't mean a dried plum, but a star from the sky?
      Sakura: That's right.
