  • Shino finally gets another fight!

    A good overall episode but what marred this episode, much like a lot of the episodes before, is the feeling that it is prolonging certain scenes in order to make the overall episode a tad longer. It doesn't seem like such a bad thing to be really annoyed over, but it creates this overall feeling that really pisses you off sometimes. The second half of this episode delivers more than the first half does though as Jiraiya finally takes action in the battle for Konoha by finally summoning an animal that will be able to match those damned snakes, and the third most interesting character after Rock Lee and Shikamaru in Shino finally appears. That alone makes this episode exciting.moreless
  • The battle between 3rd Hokage and Orochimaru heats up.

    The 3rd Hokage decides that he must use a forbidden jutsu called the Reaper Death Seal. He make two shadow clones and begins the jutsu. It take a little while for the jutsu to start and while it is getting ready the Hokage is under constant attack. Once the jutsu is ready, the 3rd Hokage sends his clones out to find the other Hokages summoned by Orochimaru. They find the Hokages and begin the jutsu and pull the spirits out of the bodies. Orochimaru used Zaku and Kin to perform the Reanimation jutsu and they are now dead. Now Enma attacks Orochimaru and the 3rd Hokage grabs Orochimaru and begins the jutsu on him....moreless
  • The Third Hokage uses his Dead Demon Consuming Seal on his oponents. Sasuke tries to catch up withTemari and Garra while Shino's and Kankuro's battle begins.

    The Third Hokage is so determined to defeat Orochimaru that he uses his Dead Demon Consuming Seal on the First Hokage, Second Hokage and Orochimaru. At the end, the Third Hokage is still using the seal on Orochimaru. I just wanted to see Orochimaru defeated but that didn't happen in this episode. Sasuke finally cached up to Kankuro, Temari and Garra. Kankuro decided to stay behind and stall Sasuke but Shino comes along letting Sasuke chase Garra and Temari. Shino's and Kankuro's battle begins. I wanted to see the outcome of this battle but that was not going to be shown in this episode but the next. Overall, this episode went great. I got to see the Third Hokage's last move to defeat Orochimaru.moreless
  • Darn you, Orochimaru!!!!! Oh well, if it weren't for him, Lady Tsunade wouldn't have become the 5th Hokage. There's an up and a down side to this.

    The battle of Konoha rages on!!!!! Lord Hokage and his clones use the Reaper Death Seal to seal away the souls of Hokages 1 and 2 that Orochimaru had resurected by using two of his followers, Kin and Zaku, as human sacrifices. Lord Hokage himself turns to Orochimaru and prepares to seal his soul as well. Unfortunatley, Orochimaru isn't ready to die quite yet. He stabs Lord Hokage in the back with Kusanagi, but he doesn't die. Enma grabs the sword so it doesn't slide in any further, but Enma can't get it out either. Staying alive through the will of fire, Lord Hokage says that the Reaper Death Seal he is about to use on Orochimaru requires a human sacrifice, and Lord Hokage would die anyway. Meanwhile, after beating Temari, Sasuke catches up with Gaara and Kankuro. Kankuro gets worried that Sasuke might have killed Temari, but she shows up and takes Gaara, leaving Kankuro to fight Sasuke. Then Shino Aburame shows up, offering to fight Kankuro for Sasuke. Shino wants to see if he can really beat Kankuro. Kankuro forfieted the match before it even started. Sasuke agrees, and pursues Gaara and Temari.moreless
