September 11: Episodes 376/377 - Mecha Naruto special
Episode is ok. I hate when i see flashback in Naruto. Half of episode we see Sakura flashback.
Episode was only good at the end when we saw team 7 with their summonings.
In manga we have one or two pages with flashback but in anime almost half of episode is Sakura's flashback and other half intro and ending. At the and we got like 2,3 min of normal episode.
Lol'ed at Sakura saying that she managed to catch up to them, this Sasuke & KCM Naruto were on an entirely different level compared to her, she's not even of Tsunade's level yet and Naruto surpassed Tsunade a while ago so what's in Sakura's head...
Episode 373 was quite interesting.
The Hokages had some screen time to show off their skills and perhaps their former "glory"? hehe The flashback brought us back to the old times of Team 7, particularly Sakura's past and her strong resolve. One thing about determination, it can't be resolved just because one says so. Looking at Tsunade's personality and style of work, for her to accept someone to be her disciple may not seem like an easy thing unless she saw something "worthy" of it. I guess, from the way she responded to Sakura's request, she must have sensed "something" about this girl (Sakura) to agree. Moreover, Tsunade may have already known about Sakura's inner potential of growth to inherit the title of a true kunoichi and to become a powerful medical-nin in the future. If Sakura succeeded, she would be carrying the line after Tsunade. Since then, Sakura was shown to be working really hard so that she could be "off-burden" of Naruto and even Sasuke.That's the kind of spirit one should have instead of those who think of themselves as "high and might". Perhaps that was the kind of spirit that Tsunade was delighted with.
I like the insert of some humour in the anime like Naruto's funny expression of "fear" when he saw how destructive Sakura's fist power was. I do agree with Naruto of not offending Sakura or one would expect a face surgery if gets hit by her. The child-like chit-chat was also nice to lift up some tension and to show the intimacy moments and the bond between the members of Team 7. Even the other teams were feeling so lighthearted with their small talks. Oh, Sai came into the picture too. This guy has also had "emotions" and no more his old self.
I hate Naruto having filter episode more than anyone.
Last episode was ok. Is it just me or i started getting cold for Naruto.
It's always a relief to see the Team 7 in action, working hand-in-hand together.
Seeing the frog smoking was funny and it could also wield a sword and fight while leaping. The other two beasts were not bad either. Sakura's healing power had definitely become better and everyone was getting healed, which was good.
Such a touching story with the previous "deadlocks" and the current ones. Made my eyes teary.
The preview says Kakashi vs Obito. Oh.. gonna be seeing their argument soon.
i very much liked the taijutsu-animation in ep375!!!
so are we making this the new episode-discussion-thread? since nobody cared to create an episode-related topic for the last 3 weeks... and judging from the post count here, i don't see the need for several threads about the anime-series anymore.
