Naruto Shippuden 266 has a great back story with the fight of Zabuza vs Kakashi from the first Naruto had during the episodes which took place in the bridge. The Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist gain their impressive weapons and each of them start their individual slaughter of the shinobi’s. Kakashi wants to get Zabuza out first because this will kill the mist created by him.
The episode starts with Kakashi telling his team to attack to give some time to Kakashi and his other fellows as they try to build up a plan. Every single attack, if it’s an explosion, a slice or just a mere attack doesn’t work on them as they just start to rebuild themselves back because of the Edo Tensei.
Suigetsu and Juugo are both within a jail which they are trying to break from, they do this and go to the armory first to get Suigetsu’s sword. Unfortunately they can’t find it so Suigetsu just picks a random sword up. As they are leaving Suigetsu tells Juugo a little about the swords and what his ultimate dream is of becoming their leader.
Kakashi finds out that they all have their own weapons as they had a seal to release them. Gai and Rock Lee decide to head out and fight the Scorch and Explosion Style users. Kakashi explains to everyone that the plan will be so that Santa Yamanaka will use the Mind Transfer Jutsu to use his sensory skills to look for Zabuza, at this point, they will switch back and Kakashi will strike with his Chidori. He will then step on his shadow and then Ensui can increase the power of the shadow, the Maki can immobilize Zabuza with the Cloth Paralysis Jutsu.
Kakashi goes on a head to find Zabuza. In the jail, Suigetsu explains that there other masters of the blades besides Kisame, Zabuza and Chojuro. First, the wielder of the Lightning Blade, The Fang, a blade swathed with lightning with the ultimate cutting edge, Azeri Ringo. Second, the wielder of the Blunt Blade, Kubotowari, that smashes through any defense, Jinin Akebino.
Thirdly, the blade that stabs and pierces everything and sews them together, the Long Blade, the Sewing Needle, its wielder is Kushimaru Kuriarare. Next is the blade that adds explosive to one’s swordsmanship, the Explosive Blade: the Splatter, its wielder Jinpachi Munashi. And the one who, like Kisame Hoshigaki, wielded the Great Blade, Samehada, Fuguki Suikazan. Lastly, the one who could handle all seven blades, the one who was known as the second coming of the demon, Suigetsu’s older brother, Mangetsu Hozuki. One day Suigetsu wants to become the captain of the new generation of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen.
Kakashi finds Zabuza from the back and the Mind Transfer ends, as Kakashi runs up with his Chidori, Haku comes back and stops him from attacking. After a few moments, Zabuza himself retracts his sword and goes for a full swing slice, he does this and right on time Kakashi lunges back and gets sliced. Kakashi notices that at the bridge Zabuza had not fought perfectly because Haku had died, but now as he is just a mere tool, he doesn’t care thus he’s gone for a full attack.
Kakashi realizes that Zabuza was a good first opponent for Naruto because he himself had learnt something very valuable from his match. Kakashi fires up Chidori and tells Mari to stay ready with her Cloth Paralysis Jutsu. As they both go on forward, Zabuza is just a tad bit slow and Kakashi slices his arm and goes for his heart. Kakashi then steps on his shadow and tells Ensui to bind them with his shadow technique. Then Mari is told to get him using her technique.
As the mist disappears, the shinobi’s are able to see the swordsmen, this time they gain a an advantage here. Kakashi tells Sai to use his Sealing Jutsu from the Foundation, Sai tells him that he hasn’t yet mastered it. Kakashi tells him that Sai was one of Danzo’s highly regarded shinobi’s so he likely to do a good job. Kakashi then tells Sai that there is no need to suppress his emotions anymore.
Kakashi then tells Sai that it takes a lot for himself to get angry and upset, but this time his boiling point is way low. Kakashi the Copy Ninja has copied over a thousand Jutsu’s and now he’s going to use them to their fullest extent to make sure that all the enemies he faces will be dead in the ground.
At a different point in the map, Kiba, Neji, Hinata and Shino plus a lot more shinobi’s are fighting the white Zetsu’s. As they go down, more and more keep coming back up. It’s as though there is no end to them. Neji was captured by one of them, he notices that when captured they absorb chakra from the back using their mouth. Neji escapes from this. A report comes in saying that a large number of Zetsu’s have passed through the ground.
In the desert, an invincible man walks, he appears and his whole body and head seem to be covered with bandages. This is Mu, the Second Tsuchikage. Gaara notices him using one of his eyes while he knows that he’s going to summon some people there. Behind Gaara a large number of Shinobi’s from his team. Naruto Shippuden 266 Ends here.
What a crazy episode, Zabuza and Haku have been sealed and now it’s time for some other fights to start elsewhere. During next Naruto Shippuden 267 episode, Gaara will notice many Kage’s coming back, like Gaara’s father, Raikage’s father and even some very powerful opponent. This is going to be hell of a fight! Naruto Shippuden 267 may be cancelled next week.
