New episode of Naruto came out. As we guessed from the preview, this episode featured Itachi and Nagato, fighting Naruto and Killer Bee. That is a very significant battle, because all the four of them are the top ninja for any given list (I am not saying that they are the strongest, mind you, I only mean that they are one of the strongest). Go on and watch it, because the next passage will start with a spoiler.
Talking about spoilers, I remember how the “Koto Amatsukami”, the jutsu that freed Itachi from Kabuto’s control, used to be a great spoiler. There was a guy who used to post comments on Naruto anime forums, that were something like “Itachi used new eye technique to free himself from Kabuto” and that would irritate people because by that time the war has even started yet in the anime, if I am not wrong. And even back then, it was not a fresh manga spoiler.
Now, a couple of words about the animation. As usual, this episode was more or less panel-by-panel animation of the manga (chapter 550). I would have liked more detailed and better animated fight scenes, especially the fight between Naruto and Itachi. Also, the expressions on Itachi’s face troubled me some. In the manga he was almost impassive, while in the anime episode he showed surprise and other emotions, while fighting Naruto and talking about Sasuke.
Also, when I was reading the manga I didn’t realise that Nagato became really young after absorbing Bee’s chakra. I noticed that he became somewhat younger looking. But now it seems to me that he looks as young as Naruto. That was unexpected.
That is it for this post, see you next time (^_^)/
