A Tribute to Akatsuki Members – Who’s Your Favorite?

These Ten Characters were the Elite Members of the Akatsuki. Like most of us Naruto Fans, we thought that the Akatsuki were a fantastic group which had some fantastic characters such as Deidara and Kisame who had the ability to kick some ass. Even though most of them are now dead, we know that during the Fourth Shinobi War, they have come back using the Edo Tensei (Impure World Resurrection/Reanimation) to get revenge for their death. The question is:

Which Akatsuki members is your favorite and why? Do they have an incredible power, or was is just their looks?

Tobi’s Izanagi Saves Him – Naruto Shippuden 253

What a crazy episode Naruto Shippuden 253 was! We saw the awesome fight between Konan and Tobi end, we also dive into the past of the Akatsuki, as it shows their bonds growing even stronger.

We start the fantastic episode with Tobi falling into Konan’s hole which was specially made for him. As he tries to transport away, Konan blocks his transportation jutsu by sticking the paper bombs on him.

As he falls down, he notices that everything around him are just paper bombs, to be exact, there are 600 Billion Paper Bombs! She wishes to kill him using this technique which would take around 10 minutes to fully explode. Before they all go off, Tobi cracks the other half of his mask to reveal that he has an eye which could be crucial to this.

As they all go off, one by one, Konan remembers all the times in which she and her friends were together. As the Sacred Paper Emissary Jutsu comes to an end, she realizes that she has nearly run out of chakra.

As she goes to say that Madara, or Tobi is dead. She notices that Tobi himself ends the sentence. She becomes shocked and realizes that she has not been able to kill him. She gets stabbed and asks how, after multiple simulations, he was able to defeat her.

He explains that the Izanagi helped him. In exchange for losing sight in that eye, he can tie the illusion and reality together. It’s a Forbidden Jutsu of the Uchiha, as it can only be used once his left eye closes after the use.

Konan escapes from him and is still able to use her chakra. She uses it to make a circular weapon which allowed her to quickly attack Tobi from the back. She sends two of them which pushes Tobi to the air, only to fall near to Konan, which then allowed him to push her into the air and strangle.

Tobi then finds the place in which both Yahiko and Nagato rest, he then uses his Transportation Jutsu to take Nagato to the world inside his eyes. At this point Konan then has a flash back to when Jiraiya was still with them. She remembers how he left them at a point and how they formed a team which was recognized by Hanzo.

At another point, Tobi’s look has completely changed, in which he now has a completely different mask and a new massive weapon. They receive the report which was originally done by the late Kisame. They understand the situation with Naruto and Killer Bee. The episode ends here.

What an incredible episode! Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 254, when the Kage’s talk about the future of the Jinchuuriki’s, and some crucial information about Tobi and Kabuto is revealed. Stay Tuned and Follow Us!

Kisame Hoshigaki’s Death – Naruto Shippuden 251

After the crazy aftermath between Kisame and Guy, the fight ends and a hint of Kisame’s story is told. We get to see a mysterious man control the Fourth Mizukage, with the name of Madara Uchiha. We see a tragic death of Kisame when one of his Sharks kills him. While Naruto, Killer Bee, Guy, Yamato, Aoba and Motoi become trapped within a Water Prison when Guy opens the scroll.

The epic battle between Guy and Kisame ends with Kisame being defeated while Guy stands on top of him. Kisame twitches his thumb, which causes Guy, in his Seventh Inner Gate, to smash Kisame as he lays there paralyzed. Yamato captures Kisame while he stays still.

Aoba then going into Kisame’s mind using the Mind Reading technique as he places his hand on top of Kisame’s head. As Aoba now reads Kisame’s mind he starts where he was told to guard the code by what ever means. He was told to that he had to guard the scroll even if he had to kill his comrades.

They start out in a forest while they eat peacefully. Kisame notices that the string trap has been initiated so he tells his comrades that they need to go as soon as possible. As they jump from branch to branch, the woman starts to build some sort of relationship with Kisame, as she says that after the mission they go and get dinner.

Fuguki Suikazan, one of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, tells Kisame to Guard the Cipher Corps and protect the encoded missive. After this he is told that none of the Cipher Crops members must fall into enemy hands as they may be taken hostage and get mind read.

Kisame and the Cipher Corps are attacked by the Leaf Village’s ANBU Torture and Interrogation Cops who came to get the Cipher Corps. They are there to get the code as well as the get more intel on how to crack the code.

At this point, most of the Cipher Corps are left behind and which are then killed by Kisame as he is only following what he has been told to, which is to make sure that the Leaf Village not get their hands on the code.

As only three are left, the woman and two men. Kisame gets ready to once again kill them since they are likely to be captured by the Interrogation Squad. Kisame backs up as the Leaf Ninja’s arrive, and throws himself off a cliff.

We then see Kisame go and kill Fuguki as well as replace his current sword with the one he currently had. The Samehada. Silently the Fourth Mizukage appears from the darkness with someone mysterious behind him. He calls himself Madara Uchiha, but that is unlikely since Madara had been killed a long time ago.

Madara/Tobi tries to get Kisame on his side by telling him that he has a plan to control the world, which is called Project Tsuki No Me. Kisame gets on his side since he has the powers to control the Three Tails. At this point Kisame asks for Madara/Tobi to prove who he really is. As he start to walk forward, Kisame bites his tongue to wake himself up to prevent Aoba from extraction intel.

At this point, Kisame creates a Water Prison Jutsu to trap himself within one, so the other people wont be able to attack him. Kisame then summons Sharks onto his Water Prison, and flashes back once more.

This time he flashes back to when he met Itachi for the first time. They both talked about how they both killed their own comrades, while Itachi didn’t mean to actually do so. So Itachi gave some advice on how Kisame is more of a Human then a Shark.

At this moment, Kisame suicides as one of his Sharks kills him. Currently the other people are shocked how Kisame had died, since he was very powerful yet died by suicide. Kisame’s Samehada is also upset as he has lost his master.

After they have the Intel, Guy opens it to see what was inside, only to find out that there was a booby trap which caused all the people there to enter a Water Prison with Sharks inside them. They notice that one of sharks has eaten the scroll and runs off with it. They aren’t able to stop this shark. The episode ends here.

What an amazing episode, Kisame’s past has been revealed, and also if you looked close enough you would have noticed that Madara/Tobi has blue hair. Which is a start to find out who the real Tobi is! Naruto Shippuden 252 will be amazing! Can’t wait for Tobi’s fight!

Green Beast Kicks Ass – Naruto Shippuden 250

Might Guy, The Green Beast, strikes back and kills one of the great Seven Swordsman, Kisame Hoshigaki. Naruto also completes his battle with Kurama and is finally able to gain his new power Chakra Mode.

We start the episode with Naruto talking to Killer Bee as he fist bumps him, while Yamato gets pissed off since he isn’t able to guess what they’re talking about. Naruto then shows both of them what his new power, Chakra Mode, looks like.

At this point, he detects that sword Killer Bee has, has something very sinister within it, Kisame then finds out that he should come out since he’ll get caught. So he opens up and finds a button which opens the door where they are at.

Naruto uses his powers for the first time and goes overboard since he jams his foot on the wall when he smashes Kisame’s body. Killer Bee notices that when he went to hit Kisame, Naruto moved as fast as Minato, but needs more practice since he hasn’t got control of his powers yet.

While Might Guy tries to see his real self while he’s sitting down in front of the waterfall. He opens his eyes and gets a shock that Kisame is his real self, but then realizes that he has woken up from his dream. At this point Guy, elbows Kisame, Leaf Rock Crushing Square on the face which pushes him onto the side of the waterfall.

At this point, Kisame tries to escape by flying away using his shark technique. Here Guy follows using his Eight Inner Gates, as he opens his Sixth Gate of Joy and follows Kisame by jumping up into the sky.

At this point Kisame takes a scroll which contains intel about Naruto’s progression as well as how powerful he has gotten. Guy reaches the place where Kisame is located. Guy tells Kisame that the shark which has the scroll must not be let through. At this point Kisame create multiple number of shark clones to distract Guy.

Here Guy fires balls of fire, called Asakujaku. This starts to hit the shark clones which reduce the number of shark but ultimately it seems as thought Guy wont be able to get all of them. So at this point Guy opens his Seventh Gate of Shock which blows out most sharks.

Guy and Kisame then launch animals at each other, Kisame sends a Super Shark Bomb Jutsu while Guy sends a Hirudora, a dog type animal. Kisame’s jutsu has the ability to absorb chakra, but here it doesn’t work, so Guy was able to kill all the sharks as well as probably killing Kisame also. Here the episode ends.

What a fantastic episode that was. Next week’s Naruto Shippuden 251 episode, we will learn more about Kisame’s past with his peers. Hopefully, we’ll learn how Kisame joined the Akatsuki.

Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist

The Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist is an organisation consisting of only the greatest blade wielding shinobi of their generation from Kirigakure. There can only be seven members at a time, hence the name. According to Suigetsu Hozuki, the swords of the Seven Swordsmen are passed down from generation to generation.

This team consists of a the following members:

Jinin Akebino
Kisame Hoshigaki
Mangetsu Hozuki
Kushimaru Kuriarare
Raiga Kurosuki
Zabuza Momochi
Jinpachi Munashi
Ameyuri Ringo
Fuguki Suikazan

During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kabuto Yakushi used the Impure World Resurrection technique to resurrect the previous generation of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist to fight for Akatsuki and Tobi, that generation was the most powerful in Kirigakure’s history. Zabuza being part of the group that attacked the Allied Shinobi Forces Third Division, Gari and Pakura summoned the remaining six to the battlefield. Mangetsu then summoned most of the swords with a scroll, and most of the swordsmen got an advantage against the Third Division, being covered by Zabuza’s Hiding in Mist Technique. By the second day of war however, all members of the previous generation are eventually sealed, and the Impure World Resurrection technique cancelled. Lets thanks our source: Naruto.Wikia.com
