  • Naruto and Kiba are given a mission to deliver the Beauty of Nature to a destination, but their client routinely gives them trouble.

    Dub Review: Terrible, awful thing to watch. Not just because this adventure is derivative, but also because it is annoying. Their client has a half dozen flashbacks to something he said at the beginning of the episode. The audience is forced to sit through these and question why they must suffer. It isn't that we've already forgotten what he had said, as these episodes are only twenty minutes long. Not to mention that when a mere civilian simply tackles the leader enemy ninja and beats him unconscious, you have to wonder if there was any point in having Naruto and Kiba along. They complain at how he constantly mistreats and gets them into trouble and are right to do so. \

    And in the end, when all the lessons are learned, we find that it was all just a mockery of what we watched. The client learns a lesson independant of the heroes, and their mission (which they failed again) was trivial in the first place. Most of these one-shots have teetered between genuinely funny to annoying, but this one picked a side and we all suffer as a cause.moreless
  • Did this really only get a 6 rating?

    Dude, did this really only get a rating of 6? I thought it was great! This episode is about how Naruto and Kiba have to escort an ignorant client and his precious tea cup to a place. Seriously, this client is a total jerk. He has absolutely no regard for Naruto or Kiba's safety, and treats them like pawns. It's totally annoying. Well anyway, the priceless tea cup gets shattered, and everyone's like OMG!!! And then the client's like oh, no biggie, I'll just make another one. And then everyone is like WHAT?!? Turns out the client is a famous artist or something. :Pmoreless
  • Definitely a filler episode.

    This was by far one of the worst naruto episodes in existence. There was barely any action and the plot, if you can even call it that was terrible. This episode shouldn't have made it to air. Hopefully there's not more train wreck episodes like this in the future and i can forget that this episode ever happened but that's may gonna be hard to do.

    When will writers realize that filler doesn't have to be bad if you put a little thought in it. The filler arc before this episode was better than this junk. The writers should do more filler arcs they are usually better quality.moreless
  • Naruto and Kiba have to protect their next client named Shin'emon, as well as a priceless teacup called "The Beauties of Nature".

    Lady Tsunade has assigned Naruto and Kiba to their next mission, which is escort their client named Shin'emon, and protect a priceless teacup called "The Beauties of Nature" while it's brought to where it belongs. However, when Naruto and Kiba meet Shin'emon, they dislike him almost immediately. Apparently, he thinks that it's normal for shinobi to dies during missions, and is carefree, not caring if Naruto and Kiba get beat up, which happens plenty of times along the way.

    They get more and more upset with their client the longer the mission drags on, but when a group of thugs manage to steal The Beauties of Nature, Naruto, Kiba and Shin'emon have to work together to get it back. But things aren't looking good, as their lives, as well as The Beauties of Nature, become endangered in the process. What will eventually become of the group? Watch the episode all the way through to find out!

    An okay filler episode, but I can definitely say that it wasn't the greatest, and it was pretty unoriginal. The same basic scenario has already happened in several Naruto fillers before, and it was also kind of boring. But it was still alright, and it at least had some action in it.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • During the cave-in, at one point the box containing the Kacho Fugetsu is right at the end of a rock, just about to fall, but when the point of view changes to that of Shin'emon, the box still manages to slide further without falling.

    • At one point in the episode, Naruto's head disappears due to an animation error.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (Shin'emon has retrieved the teacup from the water after it and Naruto went over the waterfall)
      Shin'emon: (opens the box and sees the teacup is all right) Ah, my precious. Thank goodness you're still safe.
      Kiba: And what about him?
      Shin'emon: What are you so upset about? Huh? Ninja die all the time, don't they? It's part of your job description.
      Naruto: (gets out of the water and is very angry with a big knot on his head) Yeah? Well maybe it's tome you tried dying once!

    • Naruto: Sheesh. All this trouble for a stupid teacup? It's crazy.

    • Shin'emon: You don't get it. No one understands, do they? I'll be lucky to walk away with my life? How many times do I have to say it!? No human life is as valuable as the Beauty of Nature! Not yours, not mine, not anyone's! Now do you understand why I won't give up? Because it doesn't matter whether I live or die, and it never did!

    • Shin'emon: (Washing in the river) That dumb mutt peed all over me! You guys are gonna pay for this.
      Kiba: (Sighs) Never mind that, we've gotta get your national treasure back.
      Naruto: I can't believe we let 'em get it! Man, I knew I should have taken charge of it myself; what was I thinking?
      Kiba: We'll be able to track them by Akamaru's Dynamic Marking if they haven't gone too far.
      (Akamaru barks)
      Kiba: You don't say, boy? So, they're still close, huh?
      Shin'emon: (Stands up in river and splashes face) Then what are we waiting for?

    • Naruto: Are you really as big a jerk as I think you are?!
      Kiba: Hey, in case you hadn't noticed, we could've been killed!
      Shin'emon: So what? I thought you ninja were supposed to risk your lives to fulfill your mission. (Picks up safe and walks off)
      Naruto: Whoa, wait a second there, buddy! Hold on!
      Shin'emon: (Stops walking) Don't call me "buddy". I'm the client that hired you. I'm Shin'emon. (Starts walking again) So, since you weren't killed, let's get moving.

    • Kiba: Thanks for showing up.
      (Akamaru barks)
      Naruto: Why are you here?
      Kiba: Lady Tsunade ordered me to come along as backup, just in case you needed help, which, knowing you, you probably will. You find out anything more about it?
      Naruto: (Shakes head) Nope, not a thing, except that it's some kind of national treasure.

    • Naruto: Oh, I see. That's it, isn't it? However... A teacup like this is a treasure?

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Nothing in the world is more valuable than a person's life.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Buddy, could you give us a hand...?
      Shin'emon: Die.
      Naruto: Y-You bastard....
