  • These filler arcs just don't know when to end.

    Hey look a plot twist, was I supposed to be surprised? It wasn't hard to see that this arc was going to have one of these right when you watched the second episode. Plot twists are intriguing, but the problem with this entire arc, along with the past Naruto arcs, is pacing. When you think it is going to end, it drags on for a couple more episodes before finally putting the arc to rest. Honestly, you could care less what happens from here on--unless some super cool fights are just ahead. Hopefully this arc will end the next episode, but it doesn't look likely seeing as the next episode is an hour special, ugh.moreless
  • This just keeps getting better and better!

    Most of these fillers haven't been able to hold my attention for long. But this one... Wow. There's something right around every corner! OK, so Naruto has just been sentenced to death by Lord Sagi for snooping around the palace, and Kakashi has come to the Land of Birds to escort Neji and Tenten home. Though they aren't really going home. And some ninja guy follows them, so Kakashi three monkeys to look like them. So the ninja guy comes around the corner and the three Leaf ninja are sitting in a tree fighting over an apple. Kakashi: (picks up apple) Yummy yummy! Neji: (tackles him) Hey, that's mine! (end of quotes) It was very comical. :P Then the ninja figures out that he's been chasing monkeys, but the three have already escaped. They disguise themselves as palace guards, and go to Lord Koumei's execution, where he is about to commit seppuku. Naruto, disguised as the Cursed Warrior, smoke bombs the place and rescues Komei. Kakashi, Tenten, and Neji follow them, but Tenten is the only one who isn't aware Naruto is in the costume. :P Blah, blah, blah, I don't remember the whole thing, go watch it on youtube!moreless
  • The ghost appears again!

    The title to this one is very misleading. Naruto has been sentenced to die, but that changes quickly. Kakashi, Neji, and Tenten have fooled their pursuer and have doubled back to save Naruto. In the meantime, Koumei is about to be executed by Mousou. The ghost shows up and rescues Koumei and three guards take off after the ghost. The guards are actually Kakashi, Neji and Tenten in disguise. The ghost goes back to the temple with Koumei and the others. The ghost leads them to the trapdoor as Kakashi stays behind to deal with a ninja that has been following them...moreless
  • More things are cleared in this episode.

    It turns out that Naruto didn't die after all. After hearing Chishima's pleas, Sagi trusts Naruto to get Komei out of his death sentence. Naruto decides to masquerade as the Cursed Warrior so that Moso wouldn't suspect anything. However, for Neji and Tenten (mostly Tenten) they don't know why the are tagging along with their enemies. After getting through the feudal lord's secret passageway, Naruto unmasks himself and they enter Lord Sagi's to discuss the situation at hand. Now, all Naruto and the others need to do is to defeat Moso and stop his plot from taking reign as the next feudal lord! What will happen next? Another 10 out of 10.moreless
  • This episode cleared up a bunch of things.

    As stated above, this episode cleared up a lot of things. So Sagi wasn't really evil ( disregard my review for the last episode then... ) and Mousuo was the real bad guy all along. I should've known. Wow, this plot has been quite enthrilling, I would've never expected all of this to happen. Haha, monkeys ( what they used to substitue themselves ). Kakashi fighting with that guy was exciting, I really didn't expect Gaara's sand coffin ( so they must've already gone to the sand village ). Tenten was clueless the entire time then. Very nice episode it cleared up so much, and I think the next episode will clear up the filler arc. Very peculiar.moreless

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Koumei: Mousou... It's clear that his fiendish plan was first to dispose of me and then gain control of the Land of Birds by disposing of Lord Sagi.
      Naruto: And all the time playing the good guy. I can't wait to get my hand on him.
      Sagi: No, Naruto. You've done well. However, from this point on, I act alone.
      Naruto, Neji, Tenten, & Koumei: Huh?
      Naruto: But, what do you mean?
      Sagi: Understand that I must settle this myself. Until I've done this, my heart is as broken as this watch! We are both stopped forever in the past.

    • (Koumei winces from pain and grabs his chest)
      Naruto: (Steadies Koumei) What's wrong? Are you okay?
      Koumei: I'm all right, just a bit weak. You see, Mousou was quite persistent in squeezing a confession out of me. (Shows several scars)
      Naruto: Look at you. Mister, you've been beat up pretty good.

    • Neji: When we went in pursuit of the Cursed Warrior, a second shinobi started following us.
      Tenten: Wonderful! So I'm the only one who didn't know, and I was actually worried.

    • Naruto: You're probably all wondering what I'm doing in this...(Tenten slaps him) Ow! Tenten, what the heck was that for?!
      Tenten: Let's just say I don't like being kept in the dark.

    • Neji: All right, don't you think this is far enough?
      Tenten: Huh?
      Naruto: (Dressed as the Cursed Warrior) Yeah, you're probably right. We should be in the clear. (Takes off mask)
      Tenten: N-No way! Naruto?!
      (Naruto laughs)
      Neji: I thought as much.

    • Pakkun: This guy's tougher than he seemed at first bite.

    • (Hokusin notices something funny about the way Kakashi, Neji, and Tenten are acting)
      Hokushin: Wait a minute... (Throws some shuriken at them and they turn back into monkeys) Of course, a substitution. Think you're clever, eh, playing me for a fool!

    • Hokushin: Do you really believe they're headed back to their village, Nagare?
      Nagare: Could be.
      Hokushin: The one in the mask who joined them later worries me.
      Nagare: If you want me to follow them, I will.
      Hokushin: No, leave that to me. Go on and report back.
      Nagare: Right.

    • Tenten: (Speaking to Neji and referring to Naruto being dressed up as the ghost) How long have you known that?!

    • Neji: Well, we know one thing, he's no more of a ghost than what I am.

    • Pakkun: Hey, you in there! Hide and seek is over. You can come out.
      Wandering Ninja: Ha, ha, ha... Even I can't fool a dog's nose. Very clever.

    • Kakashi: Sacrifice is an unavoidable part of the shinobi way.

    • Koumei: That Mousou! He must of thought after doing away with me, he could kill Sagi-sama and ascend the throne of the Bird country!
      Naruto: Acting like he's the good guy! I ought to beat him up!
