Episode Summary

Being some of the few Genins available, Naruto, Ino, and Shino are forced to accompany Anko on her mission to the Sea Country to destroy a sea monster and protect a boat carrying gold. However, Anko is acting strange as she begins to remember more and more events from her past, and the connection she once had with Orochimaru.moreless

  • Please be a better arc than the Mizuki, Raiga, and Ghost arc, please!

    So far this arc has started out pretty decently. For once the leader of the group isn't a genin and it's a character that we don't know much about yet in Anko. Her ties with Orochimaru are even kicking in, it'll be interesting to see if he's somehow involved in this whole debacle. The biggest thing this episode needs to fix though is the mysterious cursed character who saved Naruto at the end. We know that Naruto is all about having emo characters, but there really isn't much creativity in each of them. They're all the same; depressed and lonely. And it tried making the character too emotional too early. We hardly know anything about her and it already busted out the depressing piano. Hopefully this arc will actually turn out good unlike most of the other filler arcs in this long dreaded filler hell.moreless
  • Finally we find out about anko's past.

    In this episode the truth behind Anko's past is finally revealed. I'd been wondering since the chunnin exams what had happened to her. So Anko takes Naruto, Shino and Ino (an odd team) and goes to the sea country to destroy a sea monster. Although this episode was a filler, it revealed a lot about Orochimaru and Anko so I'm glad I tuned in to watch. The episode is centered around Anko and Naruto and Shino and Ino are basically just in the background the whole time. I would have liked to see more from them for once but overall a good episode.moreless
  • Laura Bailey is taking over Naruto!!! (Details in the middle of review)

    I always used to poke fun at Shino and Ino because they're names rhymed, so I had a blast when I found out they were on a mission with Naruto!!! I just sat around all day and muttered, "Shino, Ino, and Naruto!!!" Kinda freaky, I know. Anyway, Tsunade, who is getting to be VERY bossy by the way, orders Anko to take Naruto and Shino and Ino and go kill a squid or something. So they go off, and Anko's curse seal begins to act up, so sh leaves, leaving the three Genin to fend for themselves. Anko would make a terrbile mother!!! And then we see some flashbacks, and baby Anko sounds EXACTLY like Sana from Kodocha!!! Why? Because Laura Bailey is taking over Naruto!!! Laura, and Jerry Jewel, and John Burgmeier all belong in Shojo anime, and Jerry and John occasionally in Shonen! Laura does NOT belong in Shonen! She makes all the characters she voices sound either like Tohru, a whiny teenager girl, or Sana, a hyperactive little kid who talks too much. Nothing against Laura Bailey herself, I just think she needs to get out of Naruto and back to Fruits Basket and Kodocha where she belongs. Anyway, Anko returns and they head off to Mother Island, where they are attacked by a giant squid and Ino is knocked out. Big surprise. Then Naruto almst drowns, again, what is this, like the 5th or 6th time he's nearly drowned? This little stunt dates back to when they were fighting against Kakashi sensei in episode 4. And the Fisy Girl saves him and gives him a kiss!!!moreless
  • Anko leads the team of Naruto, Shino, and Ino on a dangerous mission.

    Anko is still having pain with the curse mark that Orochimaru gave her when she was younger. She has a nightmare during a storm and wakes up in a cold sweat. The next day Naruto is ready to go on the next mission and complaining that all the latest missions have been lame. He sees Sakura and Ino and goes down to talk to them. After a short and funny conversation, Shino appears behind Naruto and startles him. It seems that Tsunade wants to see Naruto, Shino, and Ino. Once they get to her office they find out that Anko will lead them on a dangerous mission to defeat some monster in the sea....moreless
  • Narutos first kiss

    OMG it was Naruto\'s forst kiss in this episode not the one with Sasuke coz hes a boy and that would catagorize under male kissing but this was Naruto\'s fist proper kiss even though he was unconcious and underwater and it was probably most likely the kiss of life but it was a kiss isnt any one else happy with me come on we have to do the boodie and sing along with loud rock music or depressing music because you\'re not happy because you wanted to be the forst to kiss Naruto im going with anybody here im just so happy for him even though he is a fictional character maybe ive gon a little over the top here but hey!moreless

    • Gamakichi: Are you out of your gourd?! You can't summon pops out here, it would be a disaster!
      Naruto: How come?
      Gamakichi: We're freshwater creature, genius. Saltwater and frogs don't mix.
      Gamatatsu: Actually, I don't like anything salty.
      Naruto: Gah! Then what good are you, for cryin' out loud?!

    • Anko: Careful you two, we're being targeted from underwater.
      Naruto: Oh boy. (Thinking) Well, whatever this thing is, an underwater battle calls for an underwater expert. (Aloud) Summoning Jutsu! (Thinking) I'm counting on you Chief Toad. (Sees Gamakichi and shouts) You again?!
      Gamakichi: Jeez Louise, what're you callin' me here for kid?!
      Naruto: Hey look, I'm not happy to see you either!

    • Ino: It's getting dark.
      Anko: We'll be at the island pretty soon. Just a bit further.
      Naruto: (Rowing the boat) Sounds good to me! Mother Island full steam ahead everybody!
      Ino: Sun's down you know. Seriously, where do you get all your energy from?
      Naruto: Yeah, well, at times like this your state of mind is key.
      Ino: (Sighs) Sakura's got her hands full. I feel so bad for her.

    • Ino: (Thinking about Anko) This lady is one loose cannon!

    • Naruto: Okay! Let's set sail for the Land of the Sea!
      Ino: (Thinking) Why does he always have to be so gung-ho? I have a bad feeling about this.

    • Ino: (Reading a book) Demon of the Ocean has physical traits both human and fish-like. What is this?
      Naruto: These people need to have their eyes examined. Something like that doesn't exist.
      Shino: Not necessarily. This could be ninja resorting to piracy with genjutsu at their disposal.

    • Naruto: Somethin' here doesn't smell right.
      Anko: Okay, you got your marching orders. Zip it! (Grabs Naruto's ear)
      Naruto: Ow-ow-ow-ow! All right!
      Anko: Now then, let's get this show on the road. Go pack your gear and meet me at the front gate.
      Ino & Shino: Roger!
      Naruto: Man, that really hurt.

    • Shino: (Appears behind Naruto) Naruto.
      Naruto: Gah! Shino, don't sneak up on me like that!
      Shino: Ino... Naruto... The Hokage wishes to see you now.
      Ino: Huh? Both of us?
      Shino: I was told to come fetch you. She wants to see all three of us.
      Sakura & Ino: Huh?
      Naruto: You, Shino, and me?

    • Sakura: Ino was down with a cold for a while and the guys were sent out on a mission without her.
      Ino: And I'm like totally recovered now. If I don't blow off some steam, I'll just go crazy!
      Naruto: Hey, nothing a little training won't cure.
      Ino: Not at my house! If my family ever finds out I don't have someone to spar with, I get roped into helping out at the shop.
      Naruto: Whatever. They know you'd just skip the training if you were on your own.
      Ino: W-W-Wait a minute, take that back! I train by myself all the time.

    • Ino: Jeez, I can't believe it. This is so unfair.
      Sakura: It's not so bad. I'm training so hard these days, I can hardly keep my eyes open.
      Naruto: Hey, Sakura!
      Ino: Speaking of being lazy.
      Naruto: Oh yeah? The last I checked, you're just sitting around a flower shop all day.

    • Gamatatsu: Hey there! Evening dude.
      Naruto: What's going on around here? I called for the chief, not a tadpole.

    • Ino: Boy, you and our squad leader are two of a kind, you know that? You both just vanish at the drop of a hat. No getting around it, we've got a bumpy road ahead of us.
      Naruto: Say what? You can't lump me into the same category as that screwball! She's certifiably insane.
      Anko: (Holding a knife to Naruto.) Who're we talking about?

    • Shizune: (Thinking) Hand-picked? These were the only Genin available! She's too much.

    • Naruto: What the?! You're that psycho proctor from the Chunin Exam!
      Anko: Hmm... Yeah, good times. Feels like it was only yesterday, doesn't it?

    • Naurto: Look out world, I'm going to hit the ground running today, so stand back!

    • Ino: You are so like sensei! Both of you just go off and disappear! Both of you seem to bring bad luck.
      Naruto: What did you just say?! How rude of you! How dare you compare me with that aggressive teacher! What a great inconvenience...
      (Anko appears and holds a kunai to Naruto's neck)
      Anko: Who?
      Naruto: I'm sorry.
      Ino: She's definitely dangerous.

    • Shizune: About Mitarashi Anko, did something happen before?
      Tsunade: Sort of.

      ~Japanese version

    • Shino: Naruto.
      Naruto: (Surprised) Hey, Shino! Don't scare me like that!

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: Listen up. I believe that this combination is the best one for the mission. Use your individual talents to the fullest, and complete the mission!
      All: Yes!
      Shizune: All you did was call genin who were available. She's really...
