  • Well well well...

    There is nothing more I hate than anime fillers. And this episode fits nicely into that category. Why did they have to throw this random story about Tsunade's debts in? Don't they know we are all waiting for Tsunade to return to the Leaf Village and become Hokage? We do not want to see Naruto befriend a couple of losers who don't know how to do their job. It would have helped if they made the two losers look memorable, but instead they look like run of the mill background characters, and that is where they belong. The background. And this has been bugging me for a while, but what is with the pig? It doesn't really seem to do much... Anyways, this episode could have been a lot better.moreless
  • Chill episode

    Episodes like these go greatly under-appreciated because there isn't any fighting nor does it advance the plot, however, it is fun and light hearted. Reminds me a lot of the driving episode in Dragonball Z; it is every bit as good and just as fun. Random and spontaneous events can sometimes be entertaining to watch, like how Naruto decided to give it his all to help the Akagi subordinates get the money back from Tsunade and Shi-zune disguising herself as Tsunade to hide all of Tsunade's money debt bills. It all feels like a gigantic mess that makes sense and you can't help but feel entertained about it, and what is even more bizarre is how in the end, Tsunade already had paid off the debt. The scenes with Jiraiya boiling himself in the hot springs in anticipation of cute girls to come was very amusing itself too.moreless
  • Naruto tries to help two men from the Akagi family to get the money that Tsunade owes their family so that they can return home and no one would have to know about Tsunade's debts.moreless

    Naruto is clumsy and he will do something dumb or wrong in this episode. The point is that in this episode Naruto tries to help two men from the Akagi family to get the money that Tsunade owes their family so that they can return home and no one would have to know about Tsunade's debts. Tsunade already paid the debt and has no debts. This episode has a lot of tricks because $hizune transforms to Tsunade, Naruto uses a lot of jutsus to get the money and at the end Tsunade and the boss of the family explains that Tsunade already paid the debt. It was a good episode.moreless
  • Not the best, but still funny.

    This episode starts off with Naruto, Jaraiya, Tsunade, and her assistant are heading to the Leaf Village. They come across a town that is known for it's hot springs. Tsunade wants to stop and convinces Jaraiya to stop by telling him that the steam baths are mixed (men and women together). Naruto and Jaraiya take a steam bath while Tsunade and her assistant go and play the slot machines. Naruto finishes up and leaves Jaraiya in the bath (Jaraiya is hoping that some women will show up). When Naruto goes to the room, he finds that it has been ransacked and the necklace that Tsunade gave him is gone. A note on the wall tells him to go to a place outside of town to confront the theives. Pandemonium then ensues......moreless
  • filler episode .. not to bad

    this episode is a filler episode but for a filler its not that bad some parts were VERY funny and exciting. i think this is one of the best fillers yet though like the ending was getting alittle boring but the beggining and the middle was well good and funny i like the part when tusnade was chasing naruto and they all made clones and punching each other and stuff lol and i also like the part when while tusnade was chasing naruto they steeped all over those two other guys (i forgot the names) so for a filler is not bad i give this episode a 8.5/10 .moreless

      Jiraiya: (Delusional from being in the water so long.) Must be hearing things, I thought I heard the women were here. (Sinks into the water as the episode fades out.)

    • Jiraiya: At last I've got women and plenty of them. But still...
      Old Lady: Aren't you cute?
      Jiraiya: I hoped for women who still had their own teeth you know! Ugh!

    • Naruto: Huh, so it's really Grandma Tsunade who owes you the money?
      Senta: Right, she's called the Legendary Sucker. She always loses and she lost at our village too. She was broke, so we took her I.O.U.

    • Naruto: Cannonball!!
      (Naruto dives into the hot spring with Jiraiya)
      Jiraiya: I can't say I'm having much fun here. Just me and the knucklehead... When is the mixed-bathing going to start?

    • Jiraiya: Things just go from bad to worst. When they said mix bathing, I did not know they meant this.

    • Jiraiya: Hot springs?
      Tsunade: Yeah. There's a town with nice hot springs just off the main road.
      Shizune: The "Hot Water Village" hot springs. The hot springs heal fatigue and is good for your beauty.
      Naruto: Hey, weren't we supposed to go straight back to the village? Everyone is waiting.
