  • Some good mystery mixed in with some decent fighting.

    The story is pretty interesting so far and it's at least good to know that mystery is involved. It's still keeping us guessing who the culprit is and the real identity of the real cursed ghost warrior. Although a suspect was arrested, nothing is set in stone yet. The only thing I didn't really like about the episode though is Sagi. It seems that this anime just loves to take exaggerated character behaviours and make it the central theme of an episode. Not that Sagi's situation isn't realistic, but it's also portrayed pretty weakly. Other than that, some decent action scenes and fights.moreless
  • And the plot thickens!

    After their first run in with Noroimusha our heroes go to Mousou's house to find out more information. They suspect that Koumei is behind the ghost's appearances because he would gain the most if lord Sagi was not in power since he is the village strategist. Neji decides that they must talk to lord Sagi. After foiling an assassination attempt, they talk to Sagi. They decide that they need to shadow Koumei and gather evidence that he is behind the ghost and the assassination attempt. They follow him to the building where they last fought the ghost. He appears again, but there is something different this time......moreless
  • I have my doubts...

    OK, so Naruto, Tenten, and Neji has been sent of to capture a ghost in the Land of Birds on Tsunade's orders. They assume it's just some guy in a costume, but when they fight him, nobody is inside. The guy who escorted them takes them to see the feudal lord, and the lord gets attacked by random ninja. Naruto and crew save him, but the lord bad mouths them and says they don't need any shinobi around. Um....................................................... The gang suspects some guy named Koumei or something of being behind the ghost, and they go to investigate him only to find him having an encounter with the ghost himself. Neji uses his Byakugan and senses that there is actually someone inside the armor this time, and Naruto, not thinking, as usual, attacks it. Koumei flees, and with the help of Neji and Tenten, Naruto defeats the ghost. And then some kind of gross green slime oozes out from it. EW! One thing leads to another, and the townspeople decide that Koumei is the one behind the ghost attacks, and arrest him. However, Neji is certain that there are not one, but two ghosts. How will they handle this one?moreless
  • The cursed warrior

    Naruto, Tenten and Neji continue learning about the cursed warrior. While they wait by the lake to find Sagi, assasins come out of the water, and everyone tries to protect lord sagi and he comes out unscathed. Sagi looks at the shuriken and informs Naruto that this type of shuriken is used by someone who trains the gaurdians of the land of birds. Naruto and friends follow the trainer and the trainer goes into the shack and the cursed warrior comes out of the shack. the trainer escapes then naruto, neji and tenten fight the cursed warrior. after the battle, they find that no one was in the warriors costume. left off at a cliffhanger. very good episode. plz try my website slash not in words)6tackymoreless
  • The mystery of the cursed warrior continues...

    Naruto, Neji, and Tenten are introduced to Fedual Lord Sagi, who doesn't seem to really want their help in the whole Cursed Warrior scenario. The threesome then confirms that Koumei is their man, and that he is the one controlling the Cursed Warrior. However, it seems that the bodyguards he trained seem to have been given orders by someone else to kill Lord Sagi. After the attacking in the morning, the threesome go out and investigate. They see Koumei, and another Cursed Warrior, which Neji confirms that someone is inside of the armor this time (making things a little bit more difficult), however, after defeating him, they soon see that the armor was once again empty. Kouemi decides to turn himself in, and mission over right? Wrong? Neji now suspects more people involved in this scheme. And so the mystery continues.... A 10 out of 10.moreless

    • Neji: It was different.
      Naruto & Tenten: Huh?
      Neji: Tonight's Cursed Warrior was different. There was an energy inside from a living breathing human.
      Naruto: A human being?
      Tenten: But you said you didn't feel anything like that when we fought him last night.
      Neji: I know.
      Naruto: So the vibe was different. Okay, what does that mean to us?
      Neji: It means there isn't one of them, but two.

    • Naruto: Is anyone else freaking out that it's empty again?

    • Naruto: All right! We did it you guys.
      Tenten: And this time we get to see who's hiding in there.
      Naruto: Why don't you take off that mask and say howdy?

    • Naruto: Not only is it a ghost, but it's a ghost in armor who knows how to take a hit.

    • Naruto: Jeez, who does that guy think he is anyway?
      Tenten: Jeez, a feudal lord. Remember?

    • Sagi: I don't require his help. How very annoying.
      Naruto: What did you say?
      Sagi: That friendship is consigned to the past. I have become a feudal lord and he remains a page now and forever. I have risen to great heights; I can no longer see him.
      Naruto: You dissin' friendship? Go ahead, you big snob, and say it again. I dare ya!
      (Neji and Tenten grab Naruto)
      Neji: No, Naruto!
      Naruto: Hey, what gives? Let me go! Guys like this are just asking for it!
      Tenten: Guys like this are feudal lords.

    • Sagi: Let me guess, this was Mousou's idea wasn't it.
      Shishima: Yes, because he feared for your life, Lord Sagi, and with very good reason. If these three hadn't been here, then...
      Sagi: Hold your tongue!
      Shishima: Forgive me.
      Naruto: Wait just a second! Don't you realize how dedicated this guy is? You don't know how he feels. Shishima cares about you even if you don't and this mission... Man, we're working for peanuts and the Leaf Village agreed to send us because this guy is such a loyal friend.

    • Tenten: Wow! So that's Lord Sagi, huh? What a cutie, he's definitely my type.

    • Neji: Your current feudal lord, Sagi, I'd like to meet with him.
      Shishima: I'm sorry, but... Lord Sagi isn't seeing anyone at this time.
      Naruto: Ah, you and Sagi are bosom buddies, aren't ya? (Pokes Shishima) Help us out. Come on, please.
      Shishima: Childhood friend is a bit better.

    • Naruto: Now that we've figured the whole thing out, we nab old Souffle, or Toupee, or whatever his name is and convince him to fess up. Come on, pay for my wings and let's go.
      Neji: Idiot! We can't just charge in there without any proof.
      Shishima: He is one of our top strategists so...
      Naruto: Oh man, way to spoil my fun.

    • Neji: The son assumes the throne of his father, supported and guided by a wise second-in-command. At first glance, it looks like a stable government.
      Tenten: But what about the rumors that the old feudal lord is back from beyond the grave as the Cursed Warrior?
      Neji: Jealousy. Maybe someone doesn't approve of the current feudal lord who succeeded him.

    • Naruto: That Mousou seems like a good guy, even if he is cheap.

    • Mousou: Did you figure out the true identity of the Cursed Warrior?
      Naruto: You bet ya we did! Turns out it's a real ghost.
      Mousou: A ghost? Oh, you don't say.
      Neji: You shouldn't just assume that.
      Naruto: But it appears out of nowhere and flies around because it's a ghost, Neji.
      Tenten: Yeah, and don't forget when we knocked off his helmet, the armor was empty.
      Neji: There's always a rational explanation if you know where to look.

    • Mousou: My, my. How shameful of me to receive you in such squaller.
      Shishima: My Lord Mousou.
      (Everyone bows except Naruto)
      Naruto: Huh? You mean this old guy who looks like he should be working in some dumpling shop?
      Mousou: (Laughs) The old guy from some dumpling shop am I?

    • Naruto: Does Mousou really live here? Come on, look at this place.
      Tenten: Yeah, he's a very important official. I expected luxury, not sliding panel stuff like that.
      Neji: Keep your voices down, you're being rude.
      Shishima: No, it's quite all right. The trappings of wealth and power don't interest Lord Mousou.

    • Neji: And they say you couldn't be taught. (While holding down Naruto.)

    • Naruto: Geez, who the heck does he think he is?
      Tenten: Hello, he's the Feudal Lord!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: He's this old guy who looks like he runs a dango shop!

      ~Japanese version

    • Neji: Koumei is probably using the Noroimusha to create distrust and conflict, and trying to put a crack in Sagi and Mousou's relationship. However, their friendship is strong, and when Mousou called us here, he began to feel that the day was drawing near when that the truth was revealed. And in a panic, Koumei decided to have Sagi-dono assassinated.
      Naruto: If we know that, then that's enough! Lets quickly infiltrate and-
      (Neji pushes Naruto's head below the bush, so he would not blow their cover)
      Neji: Don't be reckless, Naruto. If we don't get more reliable evidence, it's no good.
      Naruto: Ah, is that how it is?
      Neji: Yes, that's how it is.

      ~Japanese version
