Episode Summary

With Raiga seemingly dead, the gang heads back to find Karashi waiting for them. It turns out to be a trap as the Kurosuki Family ambushes them. Luckily, Naruto fools them not once, but twice, with his clones. With the enemies defeated, the villagers focus their anger on Karashi as he was the one who orchestrated the attack. Rock Lee intercepts them and says that Karashi is still young and weak, and that it is partially his fault Karashi joined the Kurosuki Family. Lee begs them to let him return to his mom, and if Karashi tries anything again, Lee will punish him himself. The villagers agree and the group heads back, but not before picking up Ranmaru. They head back to the Curry of Life shop for a meal, where Naruto tries to retrieve information from Ranmaru. One question is still uncertain, is Raiga really dead? And what of Karashi, will he keep his promise?moreless

  • Can we just end this stupid arc once and for all?

    Just when I thought that I was going to be watching the start of a next filler arc, I find out that the Kurusoki family arc hasn't even finished yet, and guess what? It still hasn't! This has dragged on for way too long and nothing really great happened in this episode. And Karashi is just a weird character; he betrays everyone, you don't know who he really is and who he wants to side with. And honestly, you could really care less because who he sides with. The only reason why the score isn't any lower is because Rock Lee is awesome and the fighting in the beginning was pretty fun to watch.moreless
  • Is Raiga really dead?

    As Naruto, Neji, Lee, and Tenten return to the village, it seems that Karashi and the villagers are there to greet them. It turns out to be a trap set up by the Kuroski family. After the thugs cause a rock slid, they think they have defeated our heroes. But Naruto used his clones to fool the Kuroski family. The Kuroski's attack and defeat everyone, but once again they have been fooled. Naruto, Neji, Lee and Tenten attack and defeat the Kuroski's. Rock Lee takes reponsibility for Karashi and vows that Karashi will do right or Lee himself will punish him. In the meantime Ranmaru still thinks that Raiga may still be alive.moreless
  • An exact repeat! But still good...

    ARGH! We KNOW what happened in the Land of Waves! We don't need you to tell us again only with different people!!!!! But fortunatley, the Land of Waves Arc was good, and pretty much the base for the show, seeing as it was Team 7's first mission. Anywho, Raiga is seemingly dead, though Ranmaru, who has joined Naruto, Neji, Lee, and Tenten, sense that he is still alive. *rolls eyes* Naruto should know by now that you can't assume someone's dead unless you chop their head off. And even then sometimes you can't be certain with this anime! So now that Raiga is "dead" (he's not!), the villagers have turned on Karashi, the curry maker's son, for following him. Lee takes full responsibility for him, then Lee, Neji, Tenten, Naruto, Ranmaru, and Karashi all go back to Grandma Sancho's for some curry. Ranmaru is too nervous to eat, for he knows that Raiga is still alive. The boys and Tenten sense a storm coming, so everyone except Ranmaru and Karashi go outside to chop wood to protect the curry shop. Neji gets some bad vibes, so he tells Tenten (his GIRLFRIEND!!!) to go check on the two inside. She does, only to find them missing. Meanwhile, Ranmaru, who is a cripple, has convinced Karashi to carry him to where Raiga was buried in the land slide, and that's all folks!moreless
  • Again, it was ok.

    Yeah it was ok. I liked the beggining the most, because of the whole ambush thing with Karasu and how they clearly avoided the whole coincidence altogether. Very nice. The rest was pretty much the same with the talking and everything and the ending was pretty suspenseful. I wish Lee could've let the villagers like kill Karasu or torture him or something he really deserves it. It's bad that still he's all evil I hope that after the next episode or the one after everyone hates him and he dies or something lol so yeah that's my review. 100 words!moreless
  • Average episode.

    I kinda hated this episode a tad bit because Ranmaru and Karashi double crossed Naruto and gang. And Raiga came back to life. But it was funny when Karashi had to eat the punishment curry. Now i dont blame Neji for not trusting that kid. Sadly Ranmaru doesnt know any better.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Naruto: Look, if your going to survive on your own, you're going to have to give it your all. And you can start by eating the Curry of Life. That's sure to cheer you up.
      Lee: Yes, that is right. It will surely nourish you.
      Tenten: Wait a sec, won't spicy curry hurt his body?
      Neji: Naruto, you shouldn't have any either.
      Naruto: What are you talking about? As a matter of fact, the more I eat of that slop, the more I feel rejuvenated.
      Lee: And it was that very curry that saved my life. It really works!

    • Naruto: Raiga was just using you so he could do all those terrible things.
      Ranmaru: Yes, he might have been using me, it's possible. But, either good or bad, either way doesn't matter to me because I'm just a tool to sense things out anyway.
      Naruto: Well, if that's what you believe, you're not really alive are you?

    • Neji: I think I see. Raiga was able to become one of the famous Seven Swordsmen because he was able to borrow power from Ranmaru.

    • Lee: It appears the villagers have come out to welcome us.
      Tenten: It appears everyone down there is safe.
      Naruto: Then I guess the Kurosuki family just ran away with their tails between their legs.

    • Lee: If Karashi ever goes astray again, there will be consequences. I swear! (Throws up fist right in front of Karashi's face) I will punish him with my two fists!

    • (Naruto falls flat on his face seeing all the unconscious Korusuki members)
      Neji: The fight's already over.
      Naruto: Man, that hurt! Huh? What the heck? That's no fair! You could have saved some for me! And right when I was finally going to get to try out my new jutsu!

    • Sansho: First things first. You've got to eat.
      Karashi: Huh?
      Naruto: Huh... Oh wow, that look's great! If you're not going to eat it, I don't mind taking it off your hands.

    • Villager: Careful, your snot's gonna fall in.

    • Tenten: Why don't we just leave this weakling here? Everyone ought to be able to live by themselves.
      Naruto: But don't you need good friends you can count on in a pinch?
      Tenten: I'm talking about the basics here. I can't stand weak, indecisive people.

    • Naruto: Hey, what are you looking for anyway?
      Kurosuki Ninja: What do you think we're looking for? Those stinking brats.
      Neji: Are you referring to us?

    • Naruto: What are you looking for?
      Guy: What do you think? Their remains.
      Neji: You mean us?
