  • It's finally over!!!

    Pretty uninspiring ending to an uninspiring filler arc. The theme of the arc, which seems to be trusting your friends, wasn't very well portrayed or executed and they could have at least done more to display this but most of it was spent on Idate's useless flashback. Idate barely winning seems like your typical Hollywood kids ending where the person wins because the other person got lazy, in this case Fukusuke slacked it for too long, and won literally by just an inch. Naruto defeating Aoi was also just as uninspiring, in fact it was hardly a fight. Aoi was kicking his ass most of the time and then all of a sudden Naruto kicks his ass! Well, at least the fillers are over.moreless
  • Last leg of the race, can Idate finish first????

    Last episode of this filler story. Well written and exciting. Aoi has beaten off attacks by Sasuke and Naruto. In the last episode Sasuke had attacked Aoi with his Chidori and cracked the Thunderblade, but was beaten back and knocked out. Sakura saves him from falling over the cliff. Naruto tries again and again but is beaten back each time. Then he notices the crack in the blade. He attacks again and this time aims for the crack, breaks the blade and send Aoi over the cliff into the river below. Now it is up to Idate to win the race. Can he make up the lost time and win the race?? Great ending. It seems there is trouble brewing between Naruto and Sasuke....moreless
  • Finally the filler arc is over

    I just got to say I am really really glad that this filler arc has come to a close. Now it is time for the next story arc, The Sasuke Retrieval Arc, but first I have to finish the review for this episode. What happens in this episode is When Sakura Haruno and Sasuke Uchiha are defeated, it is up to Naruto to defeat Aoi so Idate can continue the race. After a few failed attacks, Naruto is finally able to defeat Aoi, which means Idate can continue the race. Though Fukusuke is already near the finish line, with determination and encouragement from Naruto, Idate manages to catch up and win the race, saving the Wasabi Clan. It was an okay episode, but not really good. This review is over! Good bye!moreless
  • What I think? With a little story.

    With this one when I read the story before that I thought it would be better but it really was nothing new. I hate to sound like I am Shikamaru or something but really Naruto just beat the bad guy and save the day with the samw Rasangun. I was intersted in the race and wanted I Idate to win but I thought Naruto would summon a frog to drag out it's tounge to let Idate to win but nop. The best parts is when they were going to swing, swing, the ending of the race, and Sasuke was jeaouse becasue Naruto was the hero but that is why they called it Naruto and not Sasuke.moreless
  • FINALLY!!!

    this boring arc is finally over and it will finally get back on track! this particular episode was probably the best in this anime-only arc. with sakura and sauke out of the picture it's up to naruto and idate to to defeat aoi and get to the finish line before fukuuske. in an ovbious outcome idate wins and gets the glory. the end. not really. he meets his older brother ibiki for the first time and ibiki comments on how he has grown. and finally sasuke starts feeling inferior to naruto. this arc is one of the better filler arcs in the series.moreless
