  • The Yakumo Arc concludes

    OK, I realize that this review is extremely late. I apologize. I was sure I already reviewed this episode and was coming in to review the next one and realized that I still hadn't done this one yet. Anyway, I will try to recall what I can. OK, so Yakumo's got Kurenai trapped in this genjutsu thing that slowly erases her body. Naruto shows up and tries to convince Yakumo that the fact that her genjutsu is sealed away isn't Kurenai's fault. Well, it is, but it was for Yakumo's own fault. She apparently has this hideous beast within her and it feeds on her brain cells. O_o Anywho, Kurenai and Naruto end up killing the monster and saving Yakumo. YAY! Da end.moreless
  • As Yakumo's Genjutsu continues to take over, what will become of everyone in the end of this filler arc?

    9.3
    Just as Kiba is engulfed in flames, Naruto hurries over to put the illusionary fire out. Meanwhile, Yakumo still has Kurenai trapped in her Genjutsu, and threatens to kill her if she doesn't tell the truth about what really happened to her parents, as well as what the Third Hokage ordered Kurenai to do. Using Shadow Clones to beat himself up so he doesn't feel the effects of the illusion, Naruto charges into the flames to the alternate dimension where Kurenai and Yakumo are. Back outside, Kiba rushes over to where Sakura, Gai and Unkai are, and explains what's going on inside.



    Unkai then decides to tell Sakura, Gai and Kiba what really happened, and tells the story of how the real reason Yakumo's parents died in the fire, was because of the demon inside of her. Already knowing this story, Naruto tries to explain it to Yakumo herself, but Kurenai doesn't want that to happen. Though it's too late; the memories of what really happened that day her parents were killed bubbles up to the surface of Yakumo's mind. She comes to the conclusion that it was herself that killed her parents, despite Kurenai's cries that it wasn't. Not able to bare it, Yakumo attempts suicide, thrusting her blade towards her heart... But is stopped by something in the painting in front of her. The something begins to emerge, filled with hate... the something that is the demon called "Id".



    What exactly is this horrible demon? And what will become of Naruto, Kurenai, Yakumo, and everyone else? You'll have to watch this suspenseful conclusion to the Yakumo Arc to find out!



    An excellent ending to this filler arc, and it was really great to see more screen time for Kurenai. Yakumo was definitely an interesting filler character, too. Next Time: The Weight of the Prized Artifact!moreless
  • Naruto and Kurenai are trapped in Yakumo's genjutsu.

    Naruto is trapped in Yakumo's genjutsu with Kurenai. Yakumo starts to remember something from her past and Kurenai tells her not to do it. Yakumo can't help herself and thinks back to when she was talking to her parents about her difficulties in her training. They tell her that she should give up and she gets upset. As she loses control of her emotions, a monster appears from her subconscious. It is called the Id Monster and it kills her parents. She snaps back to reality and thinks the only way to stop this monster is to kill herself. As she is starting to do so a hand reaches out from her painting....moreless

    This episode was the ending to a good filler arc about Kurenai. It's good we get to see more about her. Poor Yakumo, it was obvious what was going on the whole time though. Yay Kurenai is back to team 8. Also, Naruto's Kyuubib is way better than Yakumos, even though her genjutsu throughout this entire filler arc was really good and stuff. Also Kurenai is an amazing genjutsu user, just wanted to say lol. So anyway yeah everything is good blah blah blah. This was a pretty good filler arc. I thought people said it was bad, but it was good.moreless
  • a good ending to a suprisingly good filler arc

    9.2
    At first i thought this would be like all the other fillers... a boring waste of time that i only wath because i'm obsessed with naruto but this was actually good and the plotline was great...finally kurenai gets a big part, usually she barely even talks plus i thought that the idea of painting the genjutsu was pretty cool ^_^, but what's up with all of the new demons lately... it's supposed to be a basic Naruto and Garra having demons only but now almost everybody has 1... wuts up with that? well anyways besisdes that i think this arc rocked even though it was filler bye!moreless

    • (Gets knocked back by the Id Monster and gets up)
      Naruto: I may not know what the heck you are, but Kiba, Shino, and Hinata are out there and I'm makin' sure they get their sensei back!

    • (Hinata is using her Byakugan and is thrown back against the wall)
      Shino: What is it?
      Hinata: I felt something strange in there. I don't know, but it somehow felt different than it did before.
      (Shino's bugs return to him)
      Shino: Hmm, my insects are acting strange.
      (Kiba and Sakura rush in)
      Kiba: Whats going on in the other room? Have you heard anything yet? Are they okay? (Akamaru gets upset and barks)
      Hinata: Oh no! I'm sensing something new forming on the other side! An incredibly powerful chakra!
      Sakura: (Thinking worriedly) Naruto.

    • Yakumo: I remember now.
      Naruto: (Struggling to break free) Yakumo.
      Yakumo: It was... It was me. The thing inside me destroyed my mother and father that day. My own hidden genjutsu killed my parents!
      Kurenai: You're wrong, Yakumo! That thing wasn't you! You and that monster are two different beings!
      Yakumo: I wish you were right, but the truth is that thing lives inside my heart. (Picks up her tool) Thank you, sensei, for everything you tried. (Intends to use the tool to end her life) Farewell, sensei.
      Naruto: Don't do it!
      Kurenai: No! Stop!
      (Yakumo starts to stab herself but a hand appears from the painting and grabs her arm, stopping her)

    • Naruto: Old man Unkai told me everything about what happened between you and Kurenai-sensei. He told me that...
      Kurenai: Stop it, Naruto!
      Naruto: No! I'm sayin' it. Sure, Kurenai-sensei sealed your powers, but only because she cared about you and wanted to protect you.
      Yakumo: What are you talking about?
      Naruto: You think you're the only one that's been suffering? Knowing your secret and not being able to tell the truth all this time, Kurenai-sensei suffered just as much as you.
      Kurenai: Please Naruto...
      Yakumo: What do you mean by "the truth"?

    • Kurenai: (Referring to the demon called "Id") This ghastly specter; it's more powerful than it was back then. Even so, I'd die before I let that thing get loose in our village!
      Naruto: (Thinking) She'd die?! Wait, so that's why she quit Squad 8; this mission is more important than anything!
      Id: I absorb all your pain into my body. And now I'll settle the score for good...

    • Gai: I knew that Kurenai had decided to seal Yakumo's powers, but this is the first I've heard about the danger the girl's subconscious caused.
      Unkai: (Nods) Yes, when the Third Hokage died, so did the secret. At this point, only Kurenai and the Kurama Clan know the whole story.
      Sakura: Kurenai-sensei risked everything to keep it a secret, even her reputation.
      Kiba: (Making a fist) We've gotta go rescue her!
      (Akamaru barks)

    • Shino: None of us, including Akamaru, is safe from Yakumo's Genjutsu. Her power attacks complex nervous systems, anything with a cerebrum.

    • Sarutobi: There are only two ways to stop the demon inside Yakumo. Either teach her to control it, or seal her powers away.
