  • Gaara the Ultimate Weapon!

    10
    In this episode, the fight between the final one of the 4 Artisans, it seems Gaara is at a big disadvantage, already low on chakra and unable to make sand anymore. Even going so far as to need his ninja tools! And now the founder of the Artisans has been revived and he wants Gaara! No, he wants our special Tanuki that we know and love: Shukaku! Wait till you see what happens to him, and how Naruto tries to rescue him, sacrificing his nails like a dog scraping at a door heh.



    The Big Bad of this seems pretty ticked at the world for abusing his village, and not even paying gratitude in a big way? Having to be revived from slumber for revenge, how unsightly as now he plans to use Gaara for it. Hmm, like Orochimaru eh? Who wanted to use Shukaku to destroy the Leaf. But this guy, plans to use Shukaku to destroy all 5 nations. Pretty interesting way to go, but we know Tsunade wouldn't let this happen again.



    All in all, I liked this episode and it had some serious play to it. It was meant as the sub-climax of the play, the climax before the true turning point of the play. The quality of the episode animation isn't as great as the rest of the Arc, but it still makes up for it as it was exciting and kept me wanting to see the end of this scuffle.
  • This episode is the conclusion of a secret mission that the Leaf Genin were asked to embark upon....

    Shikamaru has named this mission: Return the Favor. He is referring to the Hidden Sand Village. They seem to have run into a small problem. Well, maybe not so small. It seems as though there exists a ninja village that smiths ninja tools and supplies them to just about every ninja village! But they seem rather upset. Okay, VERY upset! They want to get revenge on all the shinobi villages, because why? They weren't thankful for the ninja tools that the Hidden Takumi Village made for them!? Geez! And they're even going so far as to resurrect the founder of their own village who died over 100 years ago!! What!? They're going to actually USE their own founder as a weapon!? Gosh!! They must really be angry over this issue!!
  • The episode begins with Gaara chasing the Takumi Village Ninja. And Naruto tries to help Gaara.

    7.5
    This episode is definitely not above 9 although my favorite character Gaara is in it.The episode begins with Gaara chasing the Takumi Village Ninja. The Takumi Village Ninja attacks Gaara but Gaara can't attack back because his sand was washed away during the past episode. As they fight, Naruto comes and helps but he is too late because Gaara was put into a metal spherical cage. At that time, the Takumi Village Ninja sacrificed his life for the resurrection of some sort of ancestor. This was cool, Naruto just watched and looked terrified. Do you know what's weird, Naruto tried to help Gaara out but failed. He did not use any ninjutsu, taijutsu and some ninja stuff just mere physical strength and those kunai and other ninja tools. Then the Ancestor was finally revived. Naruto attacks him but didn't even get to touch him. Then episode ends with Gaara getting out of the cage but turned into a viscous monster the Shukaku.

  • During this episode Gaara and Naruto confront the Artisan ninja but then the Artisan ninja activates the Ultimate Weapon: reviving Seimei. Seimei starts taking Gaara's chakra which makes him turn partly into Shukaku. Then Gaara escapes from his barrier.

    9.0
    I thought this was a pretty good episode. I just feel sorry for Gaara because he has to turn into Shukaku even though Gaara is good now. I like the fact that Matsuri became brave and tried to help out Naruto in saving Gaara. I also like the fact that Naruto called Gaara his important comrade. I'm sooooo happy that Gaara is not bad anymore! I love Gaara to death and I hope it all works out in the end for him. I also hope that in the next episode Gaara is still on the good side even though he turned into Shukaku.

Two episodes scheduled for the 15th and one the next week. These mark the beginning of Shippuuden and the start of new episode numbering. From the titles it sounds like they’re rearranging and stretching those first few chapters out over a couple of episodes. It also seems like we’ll be getting Kakashi Gaiden at some later point.
