Naruto Shippuden 281 is again another spoiler, it’s not too bad. We return to the Leaf where a lot of things are happening, we see that there are multiple things attacking the village which turn out to be simple things but once they realize this they find out that a group of large Sumo Wrestlers are attacking. Konohamaru attacks and defeats them.
Naruto Shippuden 281 starts out with everyone in the village having a conference. Ebisu is giving them a talk on how they should keep their morale up because the other Ninja’s have gone to war, they also keep in mind that if someone was to attack the village, they would either hide or surrender.
The women of the village have had the Allied Mom Force for a many generations now and don’t plan to give up on that. They shut Ebisu up and tell him what he’s saying is bogus and that they will be prepared to fight for the village and to do what ever they can to protect the village.
Everyone agrees and they decide that when something happens, they will have to sort it out themselves. By the end of it they’ll be ready to welcome their husbands back to the leaf. Watase, another kid tells Konohamaru that it’s better to be at the battlefield where they can earn their stripes.
Konohamaru is alone facing his Grandfathers head stone, he asks for advice, he is reminded by the Will of Fire. Moegi arrives quickly to tell Konohamaru that a band of ninja’s have arrived to infiltrate the village. She noticed them in the forest while she went picking some fruits.
Udon also arrives, he tells his story that he was chased by a fiery demon while he went picking some mushrooms. He couldn’t stop them even after running such a long distance. He kept running and running until he reached Konohamaru.
Konohamaru is faced by another girl who describes some humongous giants breaking everything in their path. Someone else comes and describes someone or something using a Rasengan with their feet, they can’t identity who it is because it impossible for it to be Naruto.
An old lady describes it being a Tailed Beast. She described it being in a form of a bear. Konohamaru goes to everyone he knows, Ebisu and even the Moms, they just laugh at the idea and won’t help them. So he goes to the other kids for help.
He tells them his situation, Watase tells gets pissed off at Konohamaru and that he should watch his mouth because he doesn’t care if he’s the Grand Child of the Third. He challenges him to a battle. They fight it when Konohamaru directly holds the Kunai at the sharp end.
Moegi helps Konohamaru as he bleeds. They walk off to figure out what’s going on here. Konohamaru and his friends head of to the place they spotted the danger. They quickly realize that what they saw was nothing more than a circus.
They get back to the village all embarrassed. They then receive another report, this being real. They quickly go to the place and notice that all the children are being chased away by Sumo Wrestlers. They are all coming in to attack and take over the village.
Konohamaru steps in, all the Mothers also step in to help. They start bashing and kicking the Sumo Wrestlers ass, Konohamaru watches as all the mothers, he’s surprised at the power of the mothers. The Wrestlers start to retreat.
Konohamaru quickly runs in front of them, he quickly creates a Shadow Clone and forms a Rasengan! He runs towards the Wrestlers and bashes it towards them. They are all hurt and can’t get up anymore. Everyone lifts Konohamaru up just like they did to Naruto. Naruto Shippuden 281 ends here.
That was a good episode for a filler. Even though I thought it would just be about the mothers of the Leaf, it’s nice to know that it was based on Konohamaru and his friends, also he’s gotten a lot more stronger. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 282, titled “The Secret Origin of the Ultimate Tag Team!”, when the Arc finally continues, The Raikage faces Naruto!!
