Naruto Shippuden 274 ends today’s episode as Choji still has some problems attacking his own teacher for the better. He keeps on hesitating until he finds the power within. He really brings out his true power, he turns a lot skinnier and develops large butterfly like wings, this gets Choji all fired up.
We start when Choji goes for an attack when he seems all kinds of images referring to Asuma as his teacher. Thus he’s unable to think properly and stops his attack right at that point. He’s once again flopped. He’s will to fight as disappeared. Asuma quickly goes for an attack when Ino takes over Choji’s body. She blocks the attack, a Zetsu appears behind Ino when Shikamaru takes over Ino’s body to defeat the Zetsu.
Choza watches over Choji to see that Choji is currently not at a good place. We go back to the past when Asuma gives them a pair of earrings to show that they’ve earned their place and have become high level shinobi’s. Choji is seen here to enjoy the moment because he never thought he would have made it this far.
Choji’s body controlled by Ino is being attacked by Asuma when Choza steps in for a bit. We go back to the past when Asuma tells Shikamaru that the king of the village is not a person but all the kids within the village. He then tells Shikamaru that he’s child is with Kurenai.
His father tells him that he’s the 16th Leader of the Akimichi Clan and that he has to stay strong in order to become a good Leader. We once again go to the past to see Choji and Choza talk about the three clans who have always been together and work together. Plus it seems that Choji doesn’t want to get the earring because it would hurt him.
We now once again go back to another point in the past where Choza and Asuma are talking, he says that Choji is a weak child who doesn’t concentrate, plus it seems that it will be hard for him to even become a genin. Asuma tells Choza that he’s not stupid, he’s just kind, his kindness is unique and when he grows up he’ll be able to use it to become a fantastic shinobi.
Choza tells him that it’s alright. He then remembers a moment when a butterfly comes out from its shell to develop into a wonderful butterfly. But it seems that butterfly cannot fly, Choji tries to help it but it falls down. He can see the butterfly in front of him. Choji now remembers another moment when he’s talking to his father about growing up and passing on the title of the Akimichi clan to his son.
He keeps on remembering other moments when he’s failed at different things, as well as going to train with Asuma. Also remembering the moment Asuma dies. He remember everyone moment he’s been scared when the war has started, it seem’s that his heart is still soft because it’s just too much for him. He keeps on remembering other memories about his clan.
He notices that the butterfly has grown large and is able to now fly away using his own wings. We’re back and Choji now tells everyone that he’s going to now protect everything he holds dead to him. He unleashes his form as a large butterfly with large wings. He becomes a lot skinnier. Asuma see’s the look in his face and notices that he’s finally serious. He hasn’t taken any pill in order to become skinnier thus it won’t affect him.
He transfers the power of his wings into his hands, and Choza notices that Choji now doesn’t need help because he’s more then worthy of becoming the 16th Leader of the Akimichi Clan. Asuma tells them to come at him. The Sealing group are now ready.
Ino takes control of two Zetsu’s to fight and push him back. Shikamaru uses his shadow to push Asuma upwards. Choji nows turns himself large and uses the power of his wings to bash Asuma to his limit! He literally pushes him towards the wall, then uses Asuma’s sword to keep him in check.
Asuma now tells them that there is nothing more to say because this is the completion of the Ino-Shika-Cho formation. Asuma seems proud of them and is now ready to be sealed. He’s sealed and Choji stays large, he expands his chakra to reach the skies and asks Ino and Shikamaru for their help in order to beat everyone! Naruto Shippuden 274 ends here!
What a crazy episode! That was truly a fantastic episode with a lot of past memories and a lot of action, specially by Choji, he’s truly a kind kid, but during a fight he’s going to be a lot more mature now because’s Asuma’s truly loves them. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 275 when it seems that Naruto escapes his hide out to find out that there’s a war going on.
