  • Who should you have called? Ghostbusters!

    8.0
    This episode was actually pretty funny for most of the first half. It opened up with a hilarious sight of Naruto training by hanging on the bottom of one of the Hokage's noses, looking like a booger. Later on, Naruto gets in a fight with Tsunade and gets a black eye. Just something about seeing him with a black eye was just so amusing. The story itself opens up like the rest of the Naruto fillers have. The first episode introduces the client at hand, the team that Naruto is going to be working with, and the conflict. Unlike other pilots to filler arcs, this actually has an interesting concept and it'll be interesting to see how it takes off from here.moreless
  • Naruto, Neji, and Tenten become ghostbusters?

    It seems that a ghost has been causing havoc in The Land of Birds. A man pays money and begs the Hokage (Tsunade) to help him and his lord. The scene then cuts to Naruto enjoying some ramen. The man stands around the corner looking and Naruto confronts him. Naruto buys him ramen since he paid all his money to Tsunade. Naruto confronts Tsunade in a funny scene about the mission. He learns that she is sending him with Neji and Tenten to The Land of Birds. On the way the man fills them in on the history of what happened. Once they get to The Land of Birds, they run into the ghost....moreless
  • Naruto and friends go ghost hunting...

    I was a bit disappointed, I thought Sakura was gonna be in this one. :( I don't exactly like Sakura, but I just feel like Team 7 is falling apart. First Sasuke leaves to join Orochimaru, Kakashi is always out on missions, and we rarely ever see Sakura because Tsunade keeps her locked underground making copies of stuff and bringing fish back to life! *rolls eyes* Whatever, here's what happened. Some guy shows up in Konoha begging Tsunade to sends help to the Land of Birds which is under attack by some ghost. Reluctant at first because of the distance, Lady Hokage sends Naruto, Tenten, and Neji out to do the job. Wait a minute, what happened to Team 10? Naruto always gets to go on missions with Teams 8 and Guy! Well, at least Lee didn't get to go on this one. He drives me nuts. So the four of them go off and finally arrive at the Land of Birds. They fight this ghost, blah, blah, blah, it wasn't all that great.moreless
  • Good episode.

    8.6
    This episode was well rounded, I guess. Still filler though, not the best. The beggining was funny, I laughed when Tsunade and $hizune were in shock at the man it looked like he was going to or cutting himself haha funny. So Naruto is afraid of supernatural beings, I would've never guessed. He has to be afraid of something though I guess. They must've walked a lot. I wonder why Tsunade called Kakashi though, cuz he never was going to be on the mission. Oh well. It was really cool when the ghosts head got cut off by Tenten. Also, when Naruto used Naruto Rendan the four Naruto's that kicked the ghost up instantly dissapeared after they kicked him, but in other episodes they don't vanish. Strange. But still a good episode, can't wait for the next (oh wait, yes I can. Lol).moreless
  • Filler. Naruto goes Ghost Buster.

    8.3
    It reminds me of a Scooby-Doo type scenario. There are alot of suspects, for this mystery. This episode was a little bit humorous, knowing that Naruto has an inner fear of the supernatural and such. For some reason i knew Neji was a none beleiver, you know trying to be bad a$$ all the time.:P But in the end Naruto should just stick to being a ninja.

    • Naruto: Now to find out who's behind this little prank. (Goes to inspect armor.) Huh? What? It's empty... But that can't be... Unless...(Starts to freak out) It's a...real...live...ghost!

    • (The ghost walks out of temple with glowing eyes)
      Naruto: Okay, I've officially had enough of this!

    • Neji: I don't see him.
      Naruto: We know he went in there.
      Neji: Yes, but there's no human presence in that building. At least I don't detect the presence of a living human.
      Naruto: Now what the heck does that mean? No, wait a second, I don't wanna know.

    • (They spot the Cursed Warrior in the air)
      Tenten: The thing can fly?!
      Shishima: Clad all in white, with a helmet and halberd in its hand, wearing the mask of an evil demon with eyes of fire... There can be no doubt about it, that's the Cursed Warrior!

    • Naruto: What about that other guy?
      Tenten: Exactly. It's Koumei the adviser I'm suspicious of. He could have assassinated Lord Oowashi to gain power and then got angry when it didn't work.
      Shishima: It's true, he's been complaining bitterly ever since Lord Sagi was chosen over him. I wouldn't put it past him to have manufactured the Cursed Warrior himself and then started these evil rumors.
      Naruto: Yeah, exactly, now you're talking. This ghost isn't any ghost at all but this Lord Koumei guy.
      Neji: (Sarcastic) Huh, so the mystery's solved just like that, eh?

    • Naruto: Thanks a lot. You know, you could have said something before about a ghost being involved.
      Shishima: I didn't mention it? I thought I did.
      Naruto: No, I think I would have remembered that. But it's just a rumor anyway, right? Has anyone ever seen it?
      Shishima: Well, I've never seen it myself, but...
      Naruto: Well, I thought so.
      Shishima: Then again, my master, Lord Mosou, saw it with his own eyes. So close, he could feel its breath.
      Naruto: Gah! That close, huh?!

    • Shizune: Did your friend tell you the details of your mission?
      Naruto: Well... No, not exactly.
      Tsunade: Their land's being haunted.
      Naruto: (Gulps) By what?
      Tsunade: They call it "The Cursed Warrior". A ghost wearing white armor that appears in the dead of night. Or so they say... Huh? (Looks behind her desk to find Naruto cowering)
      Naruto: Oh... Uh, it's nothing. I just thought you said something about a ghost, that's all.
      Tsunade: I did. What's wrong, ya scared?
      Naruto: Course not. What kind of ninja would I be if I was scared of stuff like that?
      (Tsunade and Shizune look down and see his legs shaking)

    • Tsunade: Idiot! Who said I refused his mission?
      Naruto: I see. You weren't cheating him, you were waiting for Neji to come back from the mission he's on.
      Tsunade: That's right, you little jerk.

    • Naruto: (Barges into Tsunade's office) I've seen some dirty tricks in my time, but this takes the cake!
      Tsunade: Listen you, the least you could do is knock before you come barging in here.
      Naruto: Yeah, yeah... Never mind that. What do you mean by taking every cent the poor guy has and then refusing to do the mission for him?
      Tsunade: Huh?
      Naruto: You ought to be ashamed of yourself, Grandma Tsunade. You're a big fat cheat!
      Tsunade: (Gets very angry) You want to try that again?! (Hits Naruto)
      Naruto: Ow! Never mind, sorry.

    • (Shishima has eaten several bowls of ramen)
      Teuchi Ichiraku: Thanks for coming, and as long as Naruto's treating, come back any time.
      Naruto: Oh brother... (Looks at empty money frog) You weren't hungry at all, were you.
      Shishima: I'm sorry, I kinda got carried away there, didn't I.

    • Naruto: How am I supposed to swallow my ramen with you staring at me like that? If you're hungry, go in there and order some!
      Shishima: Who... Who said I'm hungry? (Stomach growls)

    • Naruto: Ah-ah-ahchoo.
      Teuchi Ichiraku: (Laughs) I guess someone must be talking about ya.
      Naruto: No way, they're all out on missions. Anyway, isn't that when your ears are burning?

    • Kakashi: I wouldn't worry about him. He may not seem like it, but he's solid. You picked a good one to have on your side.

    • Shishima: I would do anything to help him; to bring back again, no matter what the cost.
      Naruto: (Thinking) Yeah, that's just the way I felt about Sasuke. The way I still feel.

    • Naruto: (Hanging upside-down from Third Hokage's nose on the mountain) Hey, look at me! I'm a booger!

    • Neji: There's no human aura here, at least not a living one.
      Naruto: Why'd you have to say it like that?

      ~Japanese version

    • Neji: There's no way that ghosts can really exist.

      ~Japanese version

    • Man from Bird Country: I'm sorry, it's said that I'm a skinny glutton.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Huh, huh? I didn't hear anything about a ghost...
      Shizune: Are you afraid?
      Naruto: I'm not scared! Can there be a ninja that's scared of something like that?

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: You call people who do that, ogres, you know? You old hag of an ogre!
      Tsunade: I dare you to say that one more time.
      (Tsunade hits Naruto)
      Naruto: That hurt!

      ~Japanese version

    • Man from Bird Country: If that is the case, then...
      (Man pulls out a knife)
      Man from Bird Country: I will punish myself!
      (Man gets ready to cut himself and Shizune and Tsunade freak)
      Tsunade: Don't be rash!
      (Man cuts near his skin and a money bag drops out, Tsunade and Shizune looked surprised and he empties out the coins)
