  • The End of a Fine Arc

    Renga, the last of the Janin and the strongest. He definitely shows his worth as he can turn the sun's rays into a deadly beam of destructive force. He can see 1,000 miles with his lens. He can walk on air with ice. He can melt mountains and destroy a whole forest if he could, and even take Konoha down with it and not have to be there. (Though if he did, he'd incur the wrath of Grandma Tsunade and everyone

    This wasn't too bad of an episode, but I did have a complaint about it. Normally I wouldn't have too much of an issue with deliberate low-budget, but I just want to say: Were they really just lazy with this one? It looked ok in some scenes, but when Shizune arrives, look at Naruto's face and everyone least it was just that scene that looked so wrong and fixed it afterwards. I want to know who did the art for this this one person needs improvement. Everyone else in the crew does a lot better...

    /bad stuff

    But, other than that issue, the content was great though, everything checks out except that one part.moreless
  • Da end!

    It's finally over!!! I must say, this has to be the longest filler that includes Hinata as a main character. Usually her fillers last from a single episode to 4. I don't care for teh way Haruna's voice sounds. It's obvious she's not a guy, but she kinda sounds like one. I think Michelle Ruff would've done a better job, but of course she would, because she's Michelle Ruff. Every decent anime has included her at least once. Except for maybe Spiral. And Pokemon. Actually, there's probably a whole bunch of good animes out there that don't have Michelle Ruff. Well anyway, Naruto did some stuff, beat some guys up, ten he went home. Da end!moreless
  • renga plans to kill haruna.he uses very cool techiniques such as a mirror that he uses to watch naruto and haruna that is made out of ice and a lense on the sun made from ice that can make a laser! renga is beat by naruto reflecting his laser back at him!moreless

    renga is a very good and powerful enimie! i believe he is equal to zabuza or mabeye stronger in strength! his techniques are very cool! i think it wa cheap how the laser can destroy anything but can not destroy a piece of metal! i do not understand how one hit in the arm is enough to defeat renga! he is a very evil character and would even kill his own brothers! he easily could have killed naruto! but the maker wanted him to be beat! with his ice eye thing, he could have seen naruto's attacks and blockd them! plus, his shield could have stopped the blast from hitting him but they forgot about that!moreless
  • A decent filler arc for a change.

    This arc was actually pretty ok. It had just about the right amount of humour, fight scenes, and emotions. I didn't feel like throwing my tv remote at the tv this time.

    If more fillers were like this no would complain as much. I wish naruto where a better fighter in the filler episodes though. He seems to get beaten up by everyone that he meets. He can't really be that weak and when is he gonna learn some new moves. The last move he learned was rasengan and that was a pretty long time ago and can barely even remember the episode.moreless
  • The Land of Greens arc comes to a conclusion.

    Naruto finds Lady Haruna and tells her that he is going to escort her to safety. They head for a canyon that leads to a village where she can be safe. Meanwhile, Choji is carrying an injured Hinata with Yurinojou and they are ambushed and captured by Renga and his ninja. Renga then finds Naruto and Haruna and blocks their path. He tells Naruto that he will release his friends if Naruto hands over Lady Haruna. Naruto refuses to do so knowing that Renga would never keep his promise anyway. They begin their battle and Naruto finds that Renga is protected by an ice shield...moreless

  • QUOTES (25)

    • Haruna: Naruto, why do you protect me?
      Naruto: I don't know. Just call me crazy.

    • Naruto: Shikamaru! What are you doing here? It's not like I needed your help.
      Shikamaru: Oh ya didn't huh? Then how come you're looking so beat up?
      Naruto: What do ya mean? I just tripped, that's all.

    • Shikamaru: (To Naruto) It's such a drag cleaning up after you.

    • Naruto: I've had it with this guy!
      Renga: And I have more than had it with you, kid.
      Naruto: Don't call me kid! My name's Naruto Uzumaki and I made a promise to someone, a promise to protect the Land of Greens from jerks like you!

    • (Haruna stares angrily at Renga)
      Renga: Oh, if looks could kill.

    • Haruna: No! Stop! (Runs out in front of Renga)
      Naruto: What are you doing? Get out of here while you still can!
      Haruna: It's me you want. In order to succeed you have to eliminate me, not Naruto. Forget him. He has nothing to do with it!
      Renga: I see there's a soft-hearted streak that runs in your family. You and your father will have a great deal to discuss when you're reunited in the hereafter.

    • Renga: What's wrong kid? You don't seem quite as spunky.
      Naruto: It'll never happen. You're not the one. It was Haruna's father who kept this place safe and peaceful. There's only one person who can be lord of this land. Only one person has the right, and that's Haruna, no one else.

    • Renga: Does this mean you're giving up the princess?
      Naruto: If you ever think I'd hand her over to you, you're crazy!
      Renga: Think of your friends. If you ever want to see them alive again all you have to do is walk away and go quietly back to your own village.
      Naruto: I swore to defend her no matter what! I gave Hinata my word.

    • Renga: So, do you want to know the weather forecast for today?
      Naruto: Weather forecast?
      Renga: I'd say sunny with scattered clouds, perfect conditions for dying.

    • Naruto: Is that...?
      Haruna: It looks like ice!
      Renga: You see, I'm able to gather the water vapor in the air and instantly transform it into an impervious wall of ice.
      Naruto: That's it. He was attacking me with ice. No wonder it was invisible.

    • Renga: I certainly hope you have something else up your sleeve, because that pitiful jutsu will never work.

    • Renga: Three feudal lords is two too many.
      Naruto: You'd do that? To your own brothers?!
      Renga: What does it matter that they're my brothers? Like I said, if someone is no use to me, I have no use for them. Now, stand aside and let me have the girl.
      Naruto: No way.
      Haruna: Naruto?
      Naruto: A guy who'd betray his own brothers. What makes you think someone like that would keep his end of the bargain anyway?! (Charges at Renga)
      Renga: Well there you have a point.

    • Renga: I have no use for people who no longer serve a purpose, be they friends, family, or whatever. In fact, that's something I should thank you and your friends for.
      Naruto: Thank us? What do you mean?
      Renga: For eliminating those weaklings Jiga and Ruiga. You saved me the troublesome task of having to get rid of them myself.

    • Renga: You hear that? What the princess is really saying is that you should stay with her and abandon your friends to die. Not a very noble attitude perhaps, but I have to admit, it's just what I would say.
      Naruto: Why am I not surprised?

    • Naruto: What the heck was that he hit me with?
      Renga: You have other things to worry about now, like what's to become of those friends of yours I'm holding hostage.
      Naruto: You're what?!
      Renga: Don't worry, I'll let your friends live if you just step aside and let me have the girl.
      Naruto: Hinata and Choji... (Looks at Haruna)
      Renga: Well then, what's it going to be, kid?
      Haruna: Naruto, are you going to abandon me just like everybody else?

    • Renga: Boy, do you know today's weather forecast?
      Naruto: Weather forecast?
      Renga: Cloudy and partly sunny. Perfect for you to die!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: What in the world is that?
      Haruna: Ice crystals.

      ~Japanese version

    • Renga: It's too bad, but none of your weak ninjutsu will have any effect on me, huh?

      ~Japanese version

    • Renga: Listen up! There are two kinds of people in the world. People who use people, and people who are used! I don't care if it's my parents or my friends, I will use anything in order to rise to power!
      Naruto: You idiot! I will never forgive you!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: I made a promise with Hinata...that I would protect Haruna!

      ~Japanese version

    • Haruna: Naruto, why are you protecting me?
      Naruto: I wonder. I don't know myself.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: I refuse.
      Haruna: Naruto!
      Naruto: There's no way a guy who forsakes his own brothers would keep a promise with me!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: You guys... Can you even call yourselves brothers?!

      ~Japanese version

    • Renga: Three of your comrades were captured.
      Naruto: What?
      Renga: Just hand over the girl. If you do that, you can save your friends.
      Naruto: Choji and Hinata...

      ~Japanese version

    • Haruna: Naruto!
      Naruto: I'm fine! But what the hell just flew at me?!

      ~Japanese version

  • NOTES (8)


    • Creating a weapon that focuses solar energy to create a massive laser is also used in the 2002 James Bond movie Die Another Day, which is set in North Korea. In that movie, the villain uses a satellite as opposed to a lens made of ice.
