  • Yet another filler episode, and not much happens.

    This episode is not too fun, and there is virtually no action. Probably one of the most boring in the series.

    All that happens is the kids explain some things about Gantetsu, and reveal more of his character. Also, this episode fills in all the blanks about Gantetsu.

    Other than that, nothing happens. Naruto makes a not so facinating escape from a jutsu, and he's still fighting with the captain. Sheesh, these fillers are getting worse and worse. They finally decided to stop fillers cause they knew that they won't satisfy the audience much more. Good thing, too, because people know when the next part comes out.moreless
  • wow this episode i would have to say is the best episode in season 9....

    because you know season 9 has been ok not good i really like this episode it was about gantetsu showing that he is really a good guy and he been saving kids from attcks and this episode ends with the bad guy attcking i really enjoy flash back episodes so i like it guess what now this is just a rumor i heard mabey i got it wrong but they end the show in feb. now i will tell you in the next review the full story but that just for heads ups over all tell me if you agree or not and naruto rocksmoreless
  • They continue their journey through the forest, but Todoski (how do you spell it?) tried to kill the ex-shinobazu.the Ex-shinobazu gets captured and then the two try to save him. We also see Todoski's little brother and the rest of the saved children.moreless

    This episode was okay. Lee and sakura did abolutly nothing than talk with the kids and throw one attack and give up. The when naruto comes, they cry, "NARUTO!!". All sakura did was throw kunai and then lee tried to kick the black thing. not a very productive episode for them. It was also funny when they were running away from kids. It made me laugh for some reason. Naruto, on the other hand, pretty much dominated the episode. Of course he was able to get through the ropes, because he doesnt give up. if lee and sakura were tied up in those strings, I bet they would've gaven up. And isnt lee's motto like, don't give up?moreless

    • Gantetsu: I'm leaving the Ninja Dropouts. I can't stand it anymore. They're not people, they're animals and I can't be a part of it any longer.
      Akio: But, you know what they will do to you if you try to leave them.
      Gantetsu: What I'll do is rob them.
      Akio: Huh?
      Gantetsu: And then get myself arrested by the police.
      Akio: But why?
      Gantetsu: Because then the whole gang will do what they can to free me in order to get their loot back giving the police a chance to round them up.
      Akio: You're the bait to draw them out.
      Gantetsu: So that there will be no more victims like you, this is the path that I have to take.

    • Todoroki: There's no one around. Here in the forest, no one would see.
      Naruto: Don't even think like that.
      Todoroki: No one would even need know what happened. (he picks up his sword)
      Naruto: Todoroki, stop! I'm around! I'll see!
      Todoroki: No one will ever know.
      Naruto: Don't do this.
      Todoroki: As long as you keep your mouth shut, better if you weren't here at all.
      Naruto: Now hold on a minute! What the hell are you thinking! You've got to calm down.
      Todoroki: I am perfectly calm. One way to be sure.
      Naruto: Well here we go again. Seems like half the time I end up fighting the guy I thought I could trust.

    • Todoroki: You'll die, Gantetsu! (he charges at him intending to kill him with his sword)
      Naruto: No! (Naruto tackles Todoroki)
      Todoroki: Out of my way!
      Naruto: Stop it!
      Todoroki: He's a thug! A monster who's taken the lives of countless innocent people!
      Naruto: Like you said, your mission is to escort Gantetsu to the capitol.
      Todoroki: I don't care about that! He took my little brother away from me.
      Naruto: We can't judge him, even if he's as bad as you say. We can't, it's wrong!

    • Naruto: Stop it! (Jumps on the wire cage) Sorry to keep you waiting. Uzumaki Naruto has just arrived!
      Sakura: Naruto!
      Lee: Naruto! Are you okay?
      Naruto: Of course!

      ~Japanese version

    • Todoroki: That was close.
