  • Plan: Return the Favor Continues

    I could not watch the episode prior, but this episode sums up anything missed last episode, grateful for that. I liked the fights here as the one looked like an Anti-Gaara, he had blue hair, green eyes and a voice similar and looks similar just opposite hair style. We get to see the Sand Shinobi being backed up by the Leaf. Temari and Shikamaru use their smarts to fight the girl. Kankuro, Chouji and Kiba combine efforts on their enemy. Gaara tries for the other, but his plan backfired by using a water-style jutsu was pretty good idea. Sand is heavy when soaked, it is harder for Gaara to control when he does not have much chakra left.

    The Role Reversal may have been a quick thought, but, it is fitting to do this because this is the last Arc before the end. So we might as well use this idea to end things as they were when the Manga ended: after a retrieval mission. Sand backed up Leaf, Leaf backs up Sand, completing the relationship between them.

    Now it is down to the Big Bad of the Arc, lets go!moreless
  • My reviews are always short lol. Anyways... Yayness xD

    L M A O ! Like in the beginning of the episode with Temari, Ino, and Shikamaru . . . Shikamaru and Temari was talking and Ino was thinking . She was like ' i kinda feel like i don't belong here . ' I have to say, that was funny but I don't entirely hate Ino. And yayness ! More Shikamaru x Temari xP . So . . . umm . . Kiba saves Kankuro, Shikamaru and Ino saves Temari. And Naruto and Lee saves Gaara . And Omgshh ! I think this is the episode where Temari was like.

    "We're up one." And she smiles (Kind of laughing.) lol

    If it wasn't this episode then it was the next one.moreless

    • YTV Airdate: November 28, 2009

    • Original Episode Title: The Sealed Sand Water Tiger's Counterattack

    • Near the end of the episode, Temari and Kankuro use the same methods of defeating their foes. That is, the Summoning Jutsu as well as the Puppet Coffin move. This time however, it's with the aid of Shikamaru and Kiba and Chouji respectively. Gaara, this time, uses a sand spear to piece the chest of his combatant.
