So we start the two episode special with Naruto Shippuden 273, we see a great deal of action as Kakuzu fights on, while Ino, Shikamaru and Choji all are faced with their sensei Asuma. They are forced to fight and stop their own teacher while Kabuto control him. We see a lot of past memories deep within Choji’s heart.
We start Naruto Shippuden 273 with Kakuzu obtaining a fifth and final heart from a shinobi, this allows him take out all four of his creatures and control them independently. He does thing and scatters them, after just moments, Izumo and Kotetsu arrive, they both cut Kakuzu.
Dan tells Choza to quickly seal him before he uses his Ghost Transportation technique. All the large black animal like creatures spread out to other part of the battle field to damage more people. Everyone near Kakuzu are contacted by Shikamaru’s father, Shikaku, they are told that Izumo and Kotetsu are to deal with Kakuzu while Ino, Shikamaru and Choji are to deal with Asuma because they know them best.
They are somewhat forced to be deployed by Shikaku so they have to go. We now go to the past where all three of them are facing each other in order to get stronger. Choji is currently not fighting because he doesn’t want to hurt any of them. Asuma steps in to tell Choji that he must fight and get a hit on Asuma or else both Ino and Shikamaru will be sent to Academy. Asuma tells him that he must fight a stronger opponent in order to get stronger.
They are now sent, Ino sees that both of them are hesitant in going to Asuma but must go because Asuma may have been their teacher but they must go to fight. Choji is currently really scared because he doesn’t want to fight anyone. Everyone keeps on fighting on. Ino comforts them both in order to take them to fight.
They all remember the moment when Asuma left them. Asuma is currently fighting three guys who want to get him under an attack, they succeed but fail to see that he’s currently immortal and has the power to return to his normal state. Asuma attacks them then goes to another level. Asuma uses his Burning Ash style and sparks a flame, killing all three of them!
When the fire disappears, Ino, Shikamaru and Choji are all standing there. Asuma tells them that they’ve all grown and now looks fantastic because they seem like awesome shinobi’s, they are all somewhat happy and cry a little to be told by their teacher. One of the creatures by Kakuzu dies by the hand of Tenten after using the weapon she has.
Kakuzu escaped by trap set and is faced by Darui, he swipes his sword but fails to hit as Kakuzu uses it as a place to help him jump upwards, he’s told to use his famous attack but tells them that he currently doesn’t have enough chakra to do anything except use his sword.
Ino, Shikamaru and Choji attack but realize that they were heading towards a dummy, it explodes and Choji falls down, Asuma tells Shikamaru to lead him towards Choji, at this point he does this and it all follows through when Choji stops his attack. He’s quickly attacked by Asuma because he doesn’t want to attack his own teacher.
Asuma goes to use his attack but Ino butts in to help Asuma because he could have died by the current attack. Choji tells everyone that he doesn’t want to attack because he is his teacher and doesn’t want to do anything to him. We now see a past memory when Choji faces Asuma. He goes for the hit when he stops his hit. It seems that he’s too kind and doesn’t seem to want to fight.
After the memory, we see Asuma call Choji fat, he immediately knows that it will enrage him, thus he calls it. Choji gets really angry and goes for a fully crazed attack, Choji has the awesome look when he’s going to kick ass. He runs for the attack when the episode ends.
So that was Naruto Shippuden 273, the first part of the awesome Ino-Shika-Cho fight with Asuma! It’s going to be an awesome fight! The second Naruto Shippuden 274 episode of today’s chapter is fantastic! Choji really does grow up! We’re going to see it in action next!
