  • What is this I don't even

    All I really have to say to this episode is what? This story isn't really confusing, but it's dragging the hell out of things. No excitement is really being built up for the now revealed mysterious ghost. It's going far beyond than it should, sort of like the Raiga arc. Though the highlight of this episode is the far amusing and natural comedian, Gamatatsu! Everything he does is just so amusing, and he always happens to be doing the wrong and right things at the wrong and right time. An awesome character, he really needs his own spinoff. Or better yet, dedicate most of the filler to Gamtatsu.moreless
  • I knew it!!!

    Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Go me! Go me! I so totally knew it was Sagi behind that mask! Woot woot! Party over here! Woot woot! Party over there! ^_^ Pardon me, I've just come back from an SRC Bowling Party with my pals. :P OK, OK, so Tenten and Neji tell Naruto that they're going home, and that the mission is over. He refuses to believe this, so Naruto does some snooping on the Cursed Warrior, and after attempting to summon Gamabunta, and actually summoning his sons, Gamakichi and Gamatatsu instead, is captured by Lord Sagi's soldiers, thrown into the dungeon, and sentenced to die. When he's in the dungeon, the Cursed Warrior attacks him, but Naruto wins and tears his mask off, only to find out that it's actually Lord Sagi behind the mask. SHABAM! I so knew it! Anyway Neji and Tenten find out about Naruto's sentence, and are very worried. They form a plan to rescue him, but Kakashi pops up and tells them that their duty is to Konoha, and they must leave Naruto behind. The two (LOVE BIRDS!!!!!) are reluctant, but they go with Kakashi back home. Only they DON'T go home!!! BHWAHAHA!!!!! 200 words!moreless
  • Naruto investigates the ghost.

    Even though Koumei has confessed and everything seems to fit. Neji and Naruto feel that something is still amiss. Naruto goes off on his own to investigate the ghost. Shishima discovers that Mousou is behind the assassination attempt on lord Sagi when he sees the ninja with Mousou. He is wounded but is able to get away by falling into water and using a bamboo tube to breath. Naruto stumbles onto several things that explain what caused the ghost to fly and how he appeared at the temple with the help of the two frogs that he summoned. But as he is investigating around lord Sagi's house, he is caught and is sentenced to death....moreless
  • More of the mystery of the Cursed Warrior comes to light.

    In this episode, we learn that it was not Komei who was involved with the Cursed Warrior, but Lord Moso was the one behind it all. Moso used Komei's trained ninja to do the dirty work for him so that he wouldn't be suspected of doing any of it, and get one step closer to assassinate Sagi, and become new feudal lord of the Land Of Birds! Meanwhile, Naruto learns about the things to do the entire Cursed Warrior scenario, but gets caught by Sagi, and sends him to the dungeon! Naruto tries to get out, however, the Cursed Warrior comes in to kill Naruto, and guess who it is? Lord Sagi. After trying to convince him that vengeance is wrong, Sagi gives Naruto the death penalty! Is this the end of Naruto? Hopefully not! A 10 out of 10.moreless
  • Suspenseful!

    This episode has so much twist and turn and suspense and plot and all of that stuff. Woah. This had me on the edge of my seat the entire time I watched it. Sagi is evil... pure evil! He pretty much ordered his master person to kill his best friend! Oh my gosh! And then Sagi tries to kill Naruto, and then Tenten and Neji get surrounded and everything! I did not expect any of this to happen, I am in a state of complete and other shock. This was so exciting, it didn't have the best action from the other two, but the suspense and drama kept me going the entire time and I never meant it so much when I say that I cannot wait to see the next epiosde!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Tenten: Kakashi-sensei, Naruto's in big trouble!
      Neji: We have to find him quickly and mount a rescue mission.
      Kakashi: We can't do that.
      Neji: What?
      Kakashi: Sorry, your mission's over.
      Neji: But sensei!
      Kakashi: You'll do nothing beyond your mission.

    • Tenten: So creepy... These are all the tombs of the past feudal lords, right?
      Neji: Yes, this one is the tomb of Lord Oowashi. (Neji uses his Byakugan to see inside the tomb) What is that?!
      Tenten: Wha-What is it, Neji? Are you seeing something?
      Neji: I sense something poisonous inside Lord Oowashi's body. Was he assassinated?

    • Sagi: Now that you know everything you do, we cannot let you survive! You have trespassed on the land of the feudal palace, and the punishment for that is death!
      Naruto: Huh? You're kiddin' me?!

    • Naruto: Sagi? You were the other Cursed Warrior? But why?
      Sagi: They say only a ghost can accomplish true vengeance, but that is nothing more than a dirty lie! This watch had been handed down from generation to generation of feudal lords. It was supposed to be passed on from father to son, but no more. The moment my father perished, the watch stopped ticking. It's as it felt the true pain of death. The only reason I continue this shameless life is to get my revenge.

    • Gamatatsu: Big brother, aren't we going to help him?
      Gamakichi: If we tried anything, that big guy would slice us in two.
      Gamatatsu: That doesn't sound like fun.

    • Gamatatsu: Wow, a lord lives there?
      Gamakichi: That would explain why it's so fancy.
      Naruto: That secret tunnel we found leads here?
      (They hear a splash and go check it out)
      Naruto: What the heck was that spashing?
      (They see a woman bathing)
      Gamakichi: Woo hoo! You got a pretty nice view from here!

    • (Naruto opens up a trapdoor in the floor)
      Gamakichi: What's down there?
      Gamatatsu: It's so big. I wonder if a gigantic worm built all this? Or maybe an enormous mole?

    • Gamakichi: Let's move out, Gamatatsu.
      Gamatatsu: Come on big brother, Gamakichi. It's so nice and cool and relaxing.
      Gamakichi: (Hops over to Gamatatsu) Ah, what are you talkin' about? This place should be hot and humid. (A gust of cool air comes out from the ground) You're right for once, little bro'. That is a nice moist breeze.
      Gamatatsu: See, doesn't it make you want to take a nap?

    • Naruto: Of course. If someone flew these under the cover of night, a Cursed Warrior hanging off a black kite would look like he's flying. And just like that, the mystery of the levitating warrior is solved.

    • Gamatatsu: Big bro', Gamakichi, what do you think this is? (Pulls down large black kite and falls on him) Oh oh. Who turned out the lights? Is it night already? (Yawns) Good night then. (Naruto lifts the kite off of him) Rise and shine.

    • Naruto: Why is a toad trying to jump up to that branch?
      Gamakichi: What's that moron up to?

    • Gamatatsu: Oh, haven't seen you in a while. You have a snack for me?
      Naruto: Are you kidding me? Why is it you guys?
      Gamakichi: Dad's busy, so I guess you're stuck with us.

    • Neji: Hold it! I'm still leader of this team.
      Naruto: (Growls) Yeah, and what does that have to do with it?
      Neji: The team is not yet finished with the Cursed Warrior. Tenten and I will study this from a different angle.
      Tenten: What? But you just said the mission's over.
      Neji: Naruto, you do have a valid point. The whole matter was resolved much too quickly.

    • Gamatatsu: Hey, if we meet a giant mole, how do you think we're supposed to greet him?

    • Naruto: Hey, you guys have a better sense of smell than humans, don't ya?
      Gamakichi: What'd we look like? Puppies or something?

    • Naruto: Living life to seek revenge is no life at all.

    • Gamatatsu: Gamakichi-niichan! I wonder what this is... (Pulls on a string and a kite falls down on top of him) Waa, it's dark, it's night! Good night...

      ~Japanese version

    • Sagi: I wouldn't expect you to understand the heart of somebody who has had everything taken from them!
      Naruto: How would I know that?! But, at least I know that it's a mistake to continue living just for revenge.
