Naruto Shippuden

Although finishing episode 220 of Naruto would have been a good place to stop, I formed a strange desire to continue watching Naruto Shippuden. And, like with Naruto, I decided to just watch the dubbed versions so that I can multitask. Unfortunately, Viz only has dubbed versions of episodes 1-97.

I was wondering about why Lady Tsunade had to listen to the Elders and an answer on a Q/A web page essentially said a Hokage is the highest position a ninja can obtain, but must still discuss with the Feudal Lords and the Elders on certain matters.

Today I reached the point on Viz where the Shippuden episodes were only available Subtitled (Episode 98 and onward). I was watching one episode after another, but stopped watching after I completed Episode 98. I'll mark episodes viewed as such with JAES (Japanese Audio, English Subtitles).

20170407: Episode 098, JAES
20170408: Episode 099, JAES
20170409: Episodes 100-101, JAES
20170623: Episodes 102-108, JAES
20170911: Episodes 109-117, JAES
20170912: Episodes 117-120, JAES

Episodes 119 and 120 (Kakashi when he was younger) are great episodes, especially because Kakashi is a great character.

20170913: Episode 121, JAES
20171215 AM: Episodes 122-124, JAES
20171216 PM: Episodes 124-133, JAES

20180610: Episodes 216-217, JAES
20190430: I was thinking about watching, but I have no energy to watch.

I read today that perhaps it's best to skip the filler episodes.

Episode 001:
1: Hahahaha. New "Pervy Ninjutsu"
1: "Tsunade Junior"
1=20170318 AM

Episode 002:
1=20170318 AM

Episode 003:
1: Lol. I was oblivious to that. ("Start")
1: Oh wow. Sakura's punch.
1: What's more interesting is that Kakashi doesn't know.
1: "Leaf Village Secret Finger Jutsu: One Thousand Years of Death"
1: Good thing Naruto has Sakura to break the genjutsu.
1: Haha, he's learned some things across the years.
1: Nooo... I gotta watch to the end of the battle versus Kakashi.
1=20170318 AM

Episode 004:
1: Cute. (Exposing Kakashi's weakness)
1=20170318 AM

Episode 005:
1: Team Kakashi

Episode 006:
1: Ha! Naruto explains why his headband and clothes changed. (I was vaguely wondering about it an episode or two ago)

Episode 007:
1: "If you ask me it's about time you became a jonin. It wouldn't be such a problem if you stopped complaining about what a drag everything is." "What a drag."

Episode 010:
1: Hehe. She checks to see if she won as an omen.

Episode 013:
1: Lol. "That sword, it's yours right?"
1: So... the question will be if Naruto can recognize the genjutsu.

Episode 014:
1: Very good training on Jiraiya's part.

Episode 016:
1: I don't really pay attention to this episode, even after attempting to watch parts of it several times over [I eventually read the episode summary]

Episode 018:
1: Lol. Lee speaks loudly into the mic.
1: All that grunting.
1: "Hey, we should do it too." Everybody denies Naruto the pleasure.

Episode 019:
1: I would figure out if switching opponents is advantageous. Though each clone is made from a different element so that could be the answer as well.
1: Is it a genjutsu?
1=20170320 AM

Episode 021:
1: Holy crap. That's awesome. (Using Sakura)
1=20170320 AM

Episode 022:
1: At the end of the episode extra, Kakashi points out his students essentially each split up and became students of the legendary Sannin: Naruto with Jiraiya, Sakura with Tsunade, and Sasuke with Orochimaru (well Kakashi says he doesn't know what Sasuke is up to, but essentially that's the implication).
1=20170320 AM

Episode 023:
1: That's creepy. Hugging yourself with puppets in the likeness of your parents.
1=20170320 AM

Episode 024:
1: She's bluffing. [Called it]
1=20170320 AM

Episode 027:
1: She tells him she already healed the injury itself.
1: Reanimation Ninjutsu.
1: Interesting. She was originally designing that Ninjutsu for him.

Episode 028:
1: Is he going to suggest that they fight like someone else?
1: Lol. He suggests that they have to be stronger than they were. "Stronger than we were yesterday."
1: Though the fact that there's some sort of jutsu that can make a clone of equal power as someone is, in hindsight, nearly overpowered.

Episode 029:
1: Interesting Jutsu. He has to keep his other eye closed.
1: Holy shit. What a powerful jutsu.
1: "I missed."
1=20170324 AM

Episode 032:
1: While a lot of the village is happy, there definitely exists doubters and haters among the crowd.
1: Lol. Rock Lee wants to carry Negi.
1=20170324 PM

Episode 033:
1: By now she just assume he's listening. Hahaha.
1=20170325 AM

Episode 035:
1: Interesting that Jiraiya should let the fourth tail grow during training.

Episode 036:
1: Lol. He told Naruto about Jiraiya's near-death incident with Lady Tsunade.

Episode 037:
1: Ha, his nightmare.

Episode 042:
1: Although the scale of the battle is large, it's not that fun to watch. In particular, I dislike the chasing portion - when the beast's extended arms were chasing after Orochimaru. I was similarly bored back when Naruto and Kakashi were chasing Deidara and when Gaara was chasing Deidara (with his sand).
1a=20170326 AM, 1b=20170326*
*Japanese audio, English subtitles because the website was having problems loading the dubbed version.

Episode 043:
1: Lol. From a physics standpoint. It'd require a lot of force near the point of rotation to keep such a long blade lifted.
1=20170326 4PM

Episode 044:
1: Dang. I assume the red on his hands and face is cause his skin is burned off. Ouch.
1: A bit strange that a jutsu can only be inherited... but if they say so.
1=20170326 9PM

# FILLER: Ep. 45

Episode 048:
1: Meh. Naruto's anger at this point is annoying, similar to how annoying Ichigo got in the later episodes of BLEACH. Arguably worse.
1=20170326 PM

# FILLER: Ep. 49

Episode 049:
1: Ah. Does this lead back to the first episode then?
1=20170327 AM

Episode 050:
1: OMG. "I don't understand." Really? Actually, I'm more surprised by Captain Yamato's surprise.
1=20170327 PM

Episode 051:
1: Hmm. That book doesn't exactly have to be all his executions. It could just be a community hit list.
1=20170327 PM

Episode 053:
1: I wonder if Orochimaru stopping Sasuke suggests that Orochimaru is stronger than Sasuke. Perhaps it just means Orochimaru has a psychological leverage on Sasuke.
1=20170327 PM

Episode 054:
1: Hahaha. "I understand. Thanks for the advice, Ugly."
1: Lol. Says the opposite. So in truth he thinks Ino is also ugly.
1=20170328 AM

Episode 055:
Episode 056:
1: Huh? I thought the point was that if one of the clones got it, then Naruto could just combine the experience...
1=20170328 AM

# FILLER: Eps. 57-71, MOSTLY FILLER: Eps 71.

Episode 062:
1: Lol. Rock Lee comes in. "Ahhhh. Who decided to forge bonds of comradeship in a mighty meeting of fists." Lands. Jumps. "And forgot to invite Rock Lee!?!" Joins the brawl.
1=20170328 PM

Episode 064:
1: Great save by Naruto.
1=20170328 PM

Episode 074:
1: I was wondering how a powerful ninja monk like Chiriku would be defeated. I guess what I mean is if a person like him was defeated, then how many ninja left in the world could possibly look to defeat those opponents. [Thankfully, at least to some extent, at least Asuma was surprised by Chiriku's defeat as well.]
1: Hehe. Kakashi does it one hand.
1=20170406 PM

Episode 075:
1: Lol. Why is Naruto upset? After all, Master Jiraiya can do it too.
1=20170407 AM

Episode 078:
1: This episode makes it clear how this enemy has been destroying powerful ninja such as Chiriku.
1=20170407 AM

Episode 079:
1: Blah. Really?
1=20170407 AM

Episode 081:
1: Hehe. Sai feigns putting down Naruto.
1: Lol. "I'm really starting to take a liking to you kiddo." Freaks Naruto out.
1=20170407 AM

Episode 087:
1: Lol. Tsunade jokes that Shikamaru expends energy in order to look bored.
1: "Wind Style. Rashen Shuriken." That looks awesome. I'm tempted to watch one more episode.
1=20170407 AM

Episode 089:
1: Shikamaru's dad asks him if he knows who the king is and Shikamaru responds
1: It seems like Shikamaru's dad already knows the answer. As a double whammy, Shikamaru's dad also beats him (at Shogi).

# FILLER: Eps. 90-112, MOSTLY FILLER: Eps. 90, 92, and 112.

Episode 095:
1: It's really interesting that Naruto would prefer to try and work with Gamatatsu who has no jutsu instead of Gamariki

Episode 103:
1: Ino struggles

Episode 104:
1: Holy crap, how many Rasengans is that? [Apparently the technique is called "Ultra-Many Spiraling Serial Spheres" - at least according to the Naruto wiki]

Episode 105:
1: I don't understand their tactic. Certainly they should have searched for their opponents, but tat the same time, I think keeping closer to the lake would have been reasonable.

Episode 106:
1: Giant Rasengan.

Episode 107:
1: Lol. Mini Three-Tails.
1: "And I'm that Jinchuriki!"
1: I was confused the first time I heard the lines spoken, but now I understand: "If I hadn't told him such a thing..." Flashback to "The place where someone thinks of you, that's where home is." [...] Back to present. "You told him?" [When I first heard her say it, it seemed like she was accusing him of something.]

Episode 111:
1: Why did Guren have to sacrifice herself in that way? (though she must be alive since the flower is still encased in crystal)
1: Quite a surprise: Gamakichi can use fire style.

Episode 114:
1: Dang. Anesthetic within his blood.
1: "Which one... are you now?" "Which one... do you think?"

Episode 117:
1b: Haha. Naruto won the grand prize (with three tickets) but wanted the ramen. Kakashi wanted the grand prize and had a lot of tickets.

Episode 121:
1: Cute. Naruto speaks like his master.
1: Aww... Jiraiya gives Naruto his last piece of meat (and it distracts Naruto from their present conversation)
1: I wonder who the squad leaders are.
1: That ending is great: Hinata says "Naruto" in several different ways.

Episode 122:
1: Oh wow. Kabuto absorbed Orochimaru.

Episode 123:
1: Good to see Sasuke fighting again.

Episode 124:
1a: Doesn't make sense. If Tobi can run from the attack, then Sasuke should be able to also.
1a: Huh. He trained his left eye to counter the Sharingan.
1b: How can he fly if his left wing is just snakes.
1b: Oh man. What a terrible ultimate (self-detonation).
1a=20171216 AM, 1b=20171216 PM

Episode 125:
1: Wow. Sasuke's resourcefulness and quick-thinking
1: It has yet to be revealed if Tobi survived, and I knew he probably should survive. But then I realized he definitely survived because his ability is shifting to another dimension.



Episode 128:
1: That's an interesting ending. That Naruto is named after Jiraiya's character.

Episode 129:
1: New opening credits.
1: New closing credits. I like the previous one!

Episode 130:
1: They show us Tobi has a Sharingan.
1: Ha. Jiraiya flirts with the girls and then says "I'm not giving up, that's my ninja way."

Episode 132:
1: Oh my goodness. I'm glad he retreated. 1) It seems like the tactically smart move. 2) I'm not ready for Jiraiya to die.
1: Hmm. There's a scene where the three are back to back. But given their shared eyesight, they should face each other. Lol.
1: Lol. The interview between Naruto and Jiraiya was funny.

Episode 133:
1: ;_;

Episode 134:
1: Hehe. Killing Itachi can't be this easy.
1: Well. It's not going against Sasuke's orders. Sasuke just told them to wait.
1: They don't show Naruto using a clone for Rasengan. But we don't see him use it solo either.
1: After credits is something about Naruto missing milestone episodes.

Episode 135:
1: Mostly old flashback. Possibly some new information.
1: Finally some fight.
1: Madara Uchiha.

Episode 136:
1: That's messed up. Takes his brother's eye.
1: Oh. Now we know why Itachi let his brother live.
1: Itachi must be overestimating his Mangekyo Sharingan. If this power alone is powerful, then Madara shouldn't have lost.
1: Hmm. Wonder if there are any plot twists.
1: Smile. Two sleepwalking and Shino gets mad.

Episode 138:
1: Huh. Is the snake that got away going to do something?
1: That part with Orochimaru being released seemed anti-climatic.

Episode 139:
1: Oh. In this attack, Naruto calls out "Rasengan!" and we see the clone cloud disappear soon after.

Episode 140:
1a: [Although I only had 10 minutes left, I was sleepy and had to constantly rewind through the past five or so minutes. Must turn off and continue watching tomorrow.]
1b: [Started just a couple minutes before where I left off]
1b: The whole idea seems silly. To battle distrust by planning a coup d'etat. Of course, I wouldn't believe everything that Madara says. Well, I would believe the events, but not the interpretation. For example, I thought it was already told to the viewer that Madara unleashed the Nine Tails. [See Episode 141]
1a=20180517, 1b=20180519

Episode 141:
1: Wait. Madara was against the Uchiha also? I'm confused.
1: "You are lying. The one who made the Nine-Tails attack the village was you, Madara! Itachi said so."
1: Madara tries to turn it around and say that Itachi was the one who was lying.
1: Always tapping Sasuke on the head.
1: Say what!?! "We will destroy the Hidden Leaf!"

Episode 142:
1: I wonder how he makes use of eight blades.
1: Haha. This rapping ninja with humor.
1: Haha. The end credits is Sakura being jealous of Hinata and she does the different expressions of saying "Naruto" (similar to how Hinata is only ever able to say "Naruto")

Episode 143:
1: Lucky. Though it seemed he was using a power he didn't know he had (for Karin)

# FILLER: Eps. 144-151

Episode 145:
1: Haha. Naruto catching and throwing away Sai's leeches.
1: Lol. Any person with half a brain should figure out that if leeches were just raining down, they'd fall down in various places, not just raining like a cloud directly overhead.
1: Haha. Just her luck. She's water.
1: Huh. Why didn't Captain Yamato or Sai pick up on the same awkwardness that Naruto sensed? Especially considering he was the one to have forced the villagers to come out.

Episode 148:
1: Naruto is too abrasive. And the repetitiveness of his personality reminds me of how annoying Ichigo became in BLEACH.
1: What a surprise. The one Naruto went looking for was right there.

Episode 150:
1: This filler arc (episodes 144-151) has been decent.

Episode 151:
1: Uh-oh. Haha.

Episode 152:
1: Interesting. That recollection of Naruto's encounter with Itachi. Itachi mentions he gave Naruto a power.
1: I like the interaction between the Great Sage Toad and Naruto.
1: I was curious how Naruto would react. I suppose the initial "Huh?" is appropriate.
1: I sort of knew before, but I really realized today that the credits are child versions of Sakura, Naruto, Jiraiya, Sasuke, Orochimaru, and Tsunade. I suppose the juxtaposition of two generations at the same age is unexpected.
1=20180521 AM

Episode 153:
1: I wonder if he would buy a Popsicle at some point.
1: Ah. He buys a Popsicle.
1: Wow. Iruka's words to Naruto almost got me teary eyed.
1: 9, 31, 8 | 106, 7 | 207, 15
1: My guess is "Naruto" would be the key.
1: Oh. After Kakashi was reading the numbers out loud, I would think they're page numbers.
1: Hahaha. 106 centimeters!
1=20180521 AM

Episode 154:
1: Yay! I was right about the page numbers!
1: "The Real One's Not Among Them" This probably means that there is a real Pain, which is not one of the Pain's he fought. This would be helpful in the sense that one could develop a strategy to fight the real Pain directly. Or to fight the Pains knowing that they are being controlled by another.
1: Haha. "By that time I'll no longer be a human being."
1=20180521 AM

Episode 155:
1: Hahaha. Knocks "predecessors" over. Has to put them upright.
1=20180521 AM

Episode 156:
1: What's he practicing?
1=20180523 AM

Episode 158:
1: Fucking Danzo. What a prick.
1: Nice. You tell them Tsunade. They lack... "The Power to Believe."
1: Oh no!!! Danzo!!!
1: Yeah. On that note. (Kakashi telling one of the Pain that their method is pointless) 1) If the enemy is ransacking the village to look for Naruto, then handing over Naruto is their best hope of survival. Even estimating for the worst case, not having Naruto there would be like 95% chance of loss compared to having Naruto would be 50% chance of loss. 2) From the enemy's point of view, what good is killing people in order to find Naruto? It's literally the most brute force tactic possible. It makes Pain look like a complete idiot, because anyone who does just a little investigating would know that Naruto can be easily baited by offering up Sasuke.
1=20180523 AM

Episode 161:
1: Oh wow. Naruto taught Konohamaru Rasengan...
1: They're talking about how he has to take in chakra while he's moving. What if a clone does it?
1: Wait. With them looking at the message now. Did they copy it exactly how it looked? Because when they wrote it down on paper, it would have been written in someone else's penmanship, right?
1: Hehe. Konohamaru also executes with a clone.
1: The old frog says something that reminds him of using clones. So I was right!?
1=20180525 AM

Episode 162:
1: "Almighty Push."
1=20180525 AM

Episode 163:
1: Nice. First one in one swoop.
1: Huh. They're surprised that he threw it. Why? Oh, well I suppose because Rasengan can't be thrown.
1: Oh, but we haven't seen him use his clone to collect Nature chakra yet.
1=20180525 AM

Episode 164:
1: Hmm. Seems like a waste of chakra. Quick is good, but it's unclear that Naruto understands his enemy's moves. Perhaps there's attacks that use less chakra worth using to tease out some of the enemy's defenses. [In the next scene we see the other guy absorb it.]
1=20180525 AM

Episode 165:
1: The delicate balance of the number of clones created was explained.
1: Actually, "two wrongs don't make a right"
A: "I don't have an answer"
1: Hmm. His vision has similarities with Thanos: he believes that extinguishing people can help reset the world
A: Lol. Sakura is jealous of Hinata getting to be the focus of the end credits.
1=20180525 AM, A=20180530*
*I skip towards to the end to remember how it ended.

Episode 166:
1: Hmm. In some sense he believes in "The Purge."
1: Ooo. Finally she reveals her feelings to Naruto.
1: Damn. Her caretaker just left Naruto on the ground (without even checking for injury).
1: Oh, made me a little teary (well, that moment where one feels tears coming up, but no tears have yet arrived). (When she and a superimposed Naruto say "I stand by what I say...")
1: I thought he was gonna drop her on top of Naruto and impale her. (though I figured her character is too important to kill off) [Oh, but after I made this comment, apparently he does stab her.]
1: Oh right, but she has an entire end credits after her!

Episode 167:
1: Sixtails.
1: Well. Although it's dangerous to Naruto and others. At least the Nine Tails is a rival to Pain.
1: I'm not sure how this planetary jutsu is supposed to hold the Nine Tails.
1: "Naruto..."
1: How does Naruto not know that the fourth Hokage is his father? I suppose a different question is how do I know? [Naruto finds out that the fourth Hokage is his father in episode 168. (] [As for the other question, apparently there have been several moments throughout the manga/anime. In particular, some point to the very first Naruto episode]

Episode 168:
1: Half? Why just half? Where's the other half?
1: The fourth Hokage refers to the Nine Tails being controlled.
1: Lol. Creepy. Will the fourth Hokage be watching everything Naruto does? (And by everything I mean...) [The answer to this comes later]
1: "I'm not smart."
1: Aww... "last time"
1: That was satisfying.
1: Hehe. Sakura bck in the end credits.

Episode 169:
1: Hahaha. Sakura and Ino can't believe that the younger Lady Tsunade was flat-chested.

# FILLER: Eps. 170-171

Episode 172:
1: "The two children of prophecy."

Episode 173:
1: Keyword: "maybe"
1: Since I was sleepy, I had to watch the dialogue several times over. Paused video right after Pain tells us that Yahiko died.
1: I got some yogurt and granola and was able to resume.
1: Danzo mentioned.
1: Hmm. Why have Nagato kill Yahiko and hold Konan hostage if he's gonna have Nagato killed anyways?
1: Also the caption says "Kill them." But Only Nagato is on the ground.

Episode 174:
Some day, I'll break this curse
If there is such a thing as peace, I'll seize it!
There's something more important than the method.
It's the power to believe in it!
1: The name is Naruto (actually, I might have already read that the fourth Hokage named his son after Jiraiya's character; either that or it was an earlier episode [It turns out this was indeed revealed in Shippuden Episode #133]).

Episode 175:
1: What are the rules of this jutsu? [The Naruto wiki suggests the number of people depends on the duration of death, i.e., many recent deaths or one death from long ago]
1: Huh. I didn't expect Ino to say that. "I could almost fall for him."
1: The recap in this episode is great.

# FILLER: Eps. 176-178, MOSTLY FILLER: Eps. 176, 178

Episode 179:
1: This Danzo... The not obvious villain... He gets beneath my skin...
1: It's particularly unfortunate that he was the one who caused the messenger frog to be killed. That hasn't yet to be uncovered, and perhaps it would never be uncovered given the chaos that occurred that day. It would require the frog community to question who killed the messenger and for Lady Tsunade to corroborate that she sent him to get Naruto.
1: Hmm. It's suspicious to nominate yourself.
1: Hmm. We'll see how this appointment changes. [because with all the Naruto Wiki articles I've read, I've already come across who has the title of the sixth Hokage
1: I see. The Hokage purposely put the children together due to existing group of their parents.

# FILLER: Eps. 180-196, MOSTLY FILLER: Eps. 180, 181

Episode 198:
1: That's quite a beating.
1: Hmm. Naruto looks so depressed.
1: "Fathers like to tell their sons all sorts of things, right?" - Kakashi shows to Naruto he knows their relationship.
1: Kakashi called Yamato as "Tenzo." Yamato says Kakashi's not suppose to use that name. Did they ever call him Tenzo before?
1=20180602 AM

Episode 199:
1: Lol, through the window.
1=20180602 AM

Episode 200:
1: I don't think he pitched his cause in the best way. But his going to pitch his idea and the reason behind it is very worthy of a future Hokage.

Episode 201:
1: Wow. Sai, despite being the one who has trouble understanding emotions, was able to tell Sakura that Naruto loves her.
1: Oh shit. He also likens what she made Naruto promise was like a curse mark.

Episode 203:
1: Madura claims that Naruto is a Senju (and thus would have inherited conflict with Sasuke - if inheriting such a thing were possible).
1: This Raikage is reckless. He sacrificed his left arm for an attack. And was (without interference from Gaara) going to sacrifice himself.
1: Although, I suppose one could try and carefully pull off one's skin.
1: Susanoo

Episode 204:
1: He feels imprisoned.
1: What exactly does Susanoo do?
1: She has three chakra natures.
1: This guy can fly?

Episode 206:
1: Whaa. Hinata got dibs, Sakura.
1: Oh I see. She's just putting on a front. [confirmed by flashback]
1: Wow. This is the most serious (and wise) we've probably seen from Naruto. "I hate people who lie to themselves."

Episode 209:
1: When Sasuke crushes Danzo, I thought that was anticlimactic given all the Sharingan in his arm. [but I'm soon corrected]
1: Hmm. Why would he use his Amaterasu so early (before testing/understanding his opponent)
1: I suppose now it's Sasuke's turn to be annoying (and Naruto is the grounded character). Sasuke is full of meaningless anger, just as Danzo correctly points out. [it's reiterated in the preview at the end of this episode]
1: Hmm.

Episode 210:
1: Hmm. That was just a little confusing, but apparently Madara was going to help until Sasuke actually managed to break free of the Danzo's cursed seal
on his own.

Episode 211:
1: "Don't move Karin" He must mean that he would hit her where she wouldn't die. [Oh, I might be wrong here]
1: Huh. I see. This is where all the bitterness comes from. But to be fair, Danzo's heart is misplaced and he also hesitated to volunteer (as the 2nd Hokage pointed out)
1: At the end of the day, I suppose Danzo was a good person (as opposed to Sasuke's current state) and just made a series of bad decisions due to his desperate attempt at becoming hokage.

Episode 212:
1: Beyond insane for Sakura to think she could defeat Sasuke and Tobi. In particular, even several of them attacking Tobi resulted in zero progress.


Episode 214:
1: Honestly, her crush for Sasuke doesn't make sense.
1: Her running in like that... how dumb. What a terribly written character. Inoue from BLEACH was a better female character.

Episode 215:
1: That was surprising. Naruto says, "What you've been doing is... understandable." I love this wise version of Naruto!
1: Holy shit. Karin was able to go from crushing on Sasuke (and more legitimately) to realizing she shouldn't (unlike Sakura who is just blindly in love)

Episode 216:
1: Oh, I forgot that. "I used to hate you. You better not die." - Sasuke to Naruto (in an old episode, shown here as a flashback)
1: Oh. I guess in several places, but especially here, the story uses the theme of being stronger with friends (reminds me of Harry Potter vs. Voldemort)
1: Haha. That flashback. "I wouldn't be surprised if it snowed."
1: "I'm really glad I met you."
1: Naruto still smiling as Sasuke says mean things.
1: So they exchanged all those words just by fighting? Reminds me of a martial arts flick where the two fighters mentally engaged in battle before they engaged in battle (or something like that). It is actually explained later, and has to do with a flashback.
1: "If I die, we both die, Sasuke."

Episode 217:
1: Smile. Naruto lies down beside them.
1: Ha. "Hey Sai! Since when did you develop such a carefree laugh? Huh?" "Thank you." "That wasn't a compliment!"
