  • All right.

    Now it is revealed why Tsunade dislikes Naruto so much; he resembles two people that were close to her that have already passed away. Overall like I said another time, it was sad seeing her brother and a close friend die, but in terms of execution it could have done better to feel a lot more empathetic. Her flashbacks feel drawn out; sometimes the quality of a scene is in how efficient it is and not necessarily length. This episode isn't too terrible in terms of this, but her flashback had a lot of potential to be depressing, it just didn't deliver as well as it should have.
  • Naruto makes a bet Tsunade.

    Naruto charges at Tsunade with the Rasengan. She hits the ground causing a crack to from and tripping Naruto. Naruto's Rasengan touches the ground and knocks him back. Tsunade makes a bet that Naruto won't master the Rasengan in a week and he accepts the bet. We then learn the history on Tsunade. She lost her little brother in a battle when he was only twelve. Her little brother looked a lot like Naruto and had the same attitude too. She then lost her love, Dan, in another battle. She was there that time and tried her best to save him but she couldn't...
  • Tsunade and Naruto make a bet. $hizune explains to Naruto what has happened to the people that wear the Necklace that Tsunade is always wearing.

    Naruto and Tsunade make a bet about Naruto mastering the Rasengan. I would have expected for Tsunade to make a bet like that. Well anyways later that night, $hizune explained to Naruto what happens to the people that wear the necklace that Tsunade always wears. $hizune also explained how Tsunade's little brother and the man that she loved, Dan, were importanat to Tsunade. It was very interesting how Tsunade was so kind in the past when she had her little brother alive and also Dan but ever since they died she changed. This was a good episode because it explained more about who Tsunade is.
  • And yet another filler leading up to Tsunade's desicion.....

    Please forgive my usage of the guy walks into a bar joke. I couldn't resist!!!!! Blah, blah, blah..... So a perverted old guy and a blonde kid with ADHD walk into a bar and find an old lady that looks like she's in her mid 20's when she's actually in her early 50's! So the old guy asks her if she wants to be the new Hokage, and she's like all "No way!" So the goofy blonde kid challenges her to a fight, and the old lady takes him down with one finger! What is up with that?!?!?!? OK, now that I've got that out of my system, it's time for the real review! Naruto is about to use the Rasengan on Tsunade, and she realizes the danger it can cause, and drives it into the ground. However, it doesn't do much harm, so Tsunade discovers that Naruto hasn't mastered it yet. Tsunade, being the sneaky devil that she is, makes a bet with Naruto. If he can master the Rasengan in a week, she'll give him her necklace wich is worth like a billion dollars. If he can't, then she gets all the money in his wallet. Naruto agrees, and leaves to start his training. Geez, all the adults on this show aren't to proud to take money from kids! Well at least the Sannin aren't.....
  • The truth behind the black neckles.

    Naruto is being challenged if he could master an jutsu,by the end of the week.He would win the neckles.Which was once worn by the first hokage.However there is more to this dark neckles than meets the eye.In this episode,it mostly talked about Tsunade past.Even how her brother and lover died.When she gave the neckles to her brother he pass away the next day.Same with Dan.Anyone who wears the neckles,will be gone the next day.

    This episode was revealing and great.
