After Naruto and Sasuke’s attack, they were able to pull the chakra out of Obito allowing them to leave him with no power except just being a shell. Naruto seems to have also remembered Obito’s memories in which it somehow allows for Obito regret his decisions on what he’s been doing. Naruto states that he wants to remove Obito’s mask of lies and bring him back to the good side. Continue reading
Naruto 649 somehow brought some tears as we see a nearly dead Shikamaru stand up only from a small amount of Naruto’s Chakra, all the pain, suffering and love which Naruto has felt was transferred into everyone which helped heal Shikamaru. He mentions that he’s going to be by Naruto’s side as he’s right hand man.

Naruto and Sasuke quickly get up and begin their fight back. Continue reading
Naruto 633 shows how the power of other Teams can also be compared to that of Team 7. We see that after Team Kakashi went into action they did a lot of damage, however other teams also gear up and get ready to do their duty in destroying the enemy. They eventually need something to help them get closer, which makes them all summon their own guardians, this includes Tsunade’s creature, Orochimaru’s snake and Jiraiya’s Toad.
Naruto 633 begins as Sasuke and Naruto stare at each other, Sasuke looks upon the Naruto which has obtained control over Kurama’s chakra, while Naruto looks upon Sasuke’s new Sharingan as well as black flames. Minato is impressed by Naruto has he’s managed to evolve his Rasengan to something even better.
Team 8 rolls out, they mention that they cannot lose to Team 7, Kiba creates a clone when he mentions that Naruto doesn’t have an edge on this justu of his. Naruto disagrees that they won’t do much. Kiba mentions that it may just be on but their power will increase threefold. They join and merge together using the Inuzuka Style Man-Beast Merging Transformation Technique. creating a Three Headed Wolf.
He mentions that Sasuke’s arrival may have been a bad taste but it’s just him hyped up for more. They head out towards large opponents by spinning along, they cut straight through them. Shino is next, he hits a large enemy but does not seem as though he’s done much. In fact from the bottom a great parasite injects into the enemy. This time, the enemy starts to quickly degrade and the parasite that went in has become large.
Ino looks upon there and finds it gross. Shino mentions that the parasite that went in reacts to the amount of chakra that he gives, it can grow at an astronomical speed, it’s also a tough bug to harbor inside the body. Hinata steps into action, going from 2 palms to 32 when she hears a clack on her feet, she finds her limit here. She reminds herself of what Neji said, and how Naruto held her hands, she ends and kills the enemy with her 64 palms.
She mentions that Naruto has done his best to improve, she mentions that she wants to be on Naruto’s side forever, therefore now she’ll deal 64 palms in successions with her moves. So even if it’s just one step, she’ll move forward accordingly. Team 10 are next, Shikamaru decides on formation E, in which Shikamaru enables his Shadow, Choji gets massive, and Ino enables her technique in which she transfers her thoughts to them.
She can see the enemies, they enable and see in a different manner. They quickly use their Flesh Ball Yoyo to attack the enemy in quick succession. Ino can sense the movement around them, Shikamaru is able to move using his Shadow mimic and thus moves Choji. He mentions that he’s going to get even bigger and will get even heavier. Shikamaru tells him that it’s fine and that he’ll manage.
Sai enters the battlefield, he mentions that he’s member of Team 7 too, Naruto senses him, an enemy strikes him down by sending a spike to his bird which turns into ink after it bursts. Naruto extends his arm and catches him, bringing him down gently. Hashirama mentions that they’ve gotten to a size which seems hard for everyone to handle.
Sai asks if Naruto can lend everyone his chakra again, he mentions that Kurama’s still trying to mold enough chakra. Sai goes on to mention that their tries to get closer to the real body seems to just get stopped as the smaller monsters are getting in the way. They don’t seem to have the power to get any closer, without his chakra, things could get really ugly he mentions. They can’t even bring the medical squad to the front lines.
Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura all snap their hands. Sasuke, Naruto and Sakura all summon something. Mentioning that picking them off is not going to be a problem. Naruto mentions that jumping in and close the distance in one go will be nothing for this guy. Even with all the injuries, she can easily accomplish, Sakura mentions. Out of nowhere, three large summons appear! A Snake, a Toad and a Slime like creature! Naruto 633 ends here.
What a brilliant chapter, Naruto and Team 7 are finally getting up there and showing what they’ve truly got! It’s going to be awesome seeing how everyone will be when they see this. Minato will surely be proud. Can’t wait for next week’s Naruto 634 when we’ll see the continuation of this fantastic story.
Naruto Shippuden 315 ends the somewhat touching filler arc as Yota’s story ends with him dying. We learn that Naruto and the others tried to save him, even tried to get him out of the village, but ultimately their memories were wiped by Yota himself, we also learn about his background. Naruto and the others are shocked that their friend is gone!
Naruto Shippuden 315 begins as Naruto faced Yota, he tries not to attack but it seems that he cannot do much. He talks to the others to find out that they’re also facing Yota in the same situation, plus they all remember him. Naruto detects that these Yota’s are nothing but White Zetsu’s, in other words they’re being controlled by another one somewhere else.
Ino-Shika-Cho quickly take out their Yota, it’s revealed that it is a White Zetsu, Kiba and Akamaru do the same. And so does Sakura, all to find out that they’re white zetsu’s. They’re all upset about killing him. We go to the past where Shikamaru and the others go into Naruto’s room, they invade and notice that there is a rain shower. They follow it.
We go into a secret place where Yota’s being questioned to where he’s from, he cannot answer any of the questions so starts to cry as he’s unable to do much. Naruto begins with his mischief on the Thirds face and tries to get all the attention, this helps Choji and the others to get into the building. They are nearly noticed but get through when they need to.
Yota’s being asked a question when Shikamaru and the others arrive to help Yota which they do. Unfortunately, Shikamaru’s shadow is broken by the light, Naruto appears and he’s quickly neutralized after shouting much. He shows that Yota was his first friend. Yota gets pissed off after Naruto got attacked, he quickly uses his lightning to kill all of them. They quickly run from there.
They do this when they encounter a stream of water running, it’s deep but they want to get through it. They try but Naruto, Yota, Choji and Shikamaru fall. Yota notices Choji and Shikamaru, and saves them. Naruto is still going, at this point, Yota saves him but collapses in the water which he keeps on running.
They try and catch up to him. They notice that these could be his last few moments. He’s okay that they’re okay. He’s ready to give up, when Naruto tries to stop him, they hold his hand when Yota wipes their memories, fortunately, it wasn’t permanent. From this point on, everyone went on living as they were and they forgot that they were friends.
Naruto can’t seem to be able to kill him. Naruto hears a familiar sound when Naruto and the others are connected by the telepathy thing. Naruto is happy that they’re all okay. He explains that he was already dead and that he was under the Edo Tensei. He remembers that he was a weak child. He was paid for his ability to create rain. He died but Orochimaru saw the potential and brought him back.
He mentions that after he died, he had so much fun with them, he was no longer alone and was able to meet new friends. He mentions that they’re all grown up so much. Naruto tells him that they can once again more fun, for the last time. It starts to snow, it fills and covers him up. A lightning shock come and destroys him, as he has no regret. Yota dies here, Naruto Shippuden 315 ends here.
A good arc that made some sense, and it tried to link most of the things we know about the Edo Tensei, but it seems that they’re trying to connect a lot, stuff that shouldn’t really be ruined. They need something fresh and new to work with, Next time, Naruto Shippuden 316, titled “The Reanimated Allied Forces”, deal with the current story with some background information which could be somewhat interesting.
Naruto Shippuden 314 continues with Yota’s story, as more and more people start to know about Yota. Kiba and Akamaru join, and so does Naruto. They know what’s going on when they decide to play a harmless game. All of a sudden they lose track of Yota who is then captured by a number of ANBU members. Naruto mentions that they let him die.
Naruto Shippuden 314 begins as Sakura keeps on being called forehead for her somewhat big forehead. Yota seems to have gotten used to her already, it quickly starts to snow as a sign of happiness from Yota’s side. They first begins by using the snow as a playing ground, they play with snowballs, built an igloo and ride the snow. Ino is upset that she wasn’t able to give Sasuke some of her flowers, she gives a few to Yota.
Sakura and the others notice flowers on Sasuke’s bag who then quickly figure out that Yota did it, they ask not to do such a thing again because someone could notice him. However someone did, they figure out that it could have been Naruto. They currently don’t know who Naruto is. Sakura seems to be facing the current Yota who could attack her at any time, the others are also being attacked by he’s water and lightning.
Ino asks for her to be connected to Sakura, who also mentions that she’s facing Yota, Kiba also join the call and they figure out that there are currently three of them. Naruto arrives at a forest setting where he hears a fourth Yota whistling, Naruto remembers him.
We go to the past again when Naruto is approached by Sakura, Ino, Shikamaru and Choji. They are all angry at him for being so stubborn and for doing what he’s just did. They take him to the tree castle for him to look, it’s all torn down. They give Naruto the look that others give him, as though they’re judging him. He’s felt useless and runs away, even though he doesn’t know anything.
He runs off and gets lost, he meets a crying Yota who instantly recognises him, he mentions that he was doing something with his mouth to make sound, he asks him to teach him. They spend some time together while Yota is being told how to whistle when Naruto and Yota become friend. Kiba appears with Akamaru, they run towards him when Yota quickly climbs a tree and gets mad, this releases purple thunder towards Kiba and Akamaru.
Yota mentions that he doesn’t like dogs. Everyone appears and they also start to get attacked by the lightning. They begin by playing a game, mostly like hide and seek, they all get their places when Yota goes towards Naruto, he tells him to go somewhere else or he’ll get captured too. Naruto is the first to get captured, everyone tries to save themselves when Kiba gets all of them except Yota who doesn’t seem to be there.
They notice a rain shower out of nowhere, Sakura and the others quickly run at it to find that Yota’s been captured, the ANBU forces tell them that he’s under their custody now and that they will all be contacted in order to be interrogated. They try to fight but can’t seem to be doing a lot. Naruto now mentions that they left Yota there, they couldn’t do much and they allowed Yota to die. Naruto Shippuden 314 ends here.
It’s obviously getting slightly good for a filler, although it’s all somewhat expected, I think this filler story ends next week, after that, it’s most likely that another will begin quickly after that. Nevertheless I hope Naruto Shippuden 315, titled “Lingering Snow”, is better than this weeks.
Naruto Shippuden 313 boils up another worthless filler episode, and guess what, I personally hate the guts out of whats currently happening. Some stupid kid called Yota shows us as an Edo Tensei, when Sakura, Choji, Ino, Shikamaru and Kiba all recognise him. It seems there are multiple versions of Yota. Naruto seems to be getting closer, we get a past to how they all met Yota.
Naruto Shippuden 313 begins as Shikamaru and the other see no end of White Zetsu’s, so they keep on going on to attack as much as they can, out of nowhere comes out rain, even when it’s sunny. Shikamaru notices that there is someone there, he cries on when a large amount of water ends up on Shikamaru.
Sakura receives a patient to who she quickly recognises as being someone who she may know, snow starts to fall. The boy gets up and starts spinning her mentioning the word Kon. It seems to have gotten excited about the snow. Kiba is attacked by a purple lightning to which it is led to meet this boy at a different place. They wonder who is it when another lightning spike keeps on trying to hit them.
Everyone notices the water and quickly deduce that it is another enemy. Shikamaru seems to be trapped by the water, Choji helps by blocking it, Shikamaru uses he’s Shadow Strangle but fails as the boy keeps on crying to which the rain intensifies and thus starts to break their jutsu’s. The boy speaks of their name quickly goes to hit them with his fingers on the face.
They all quickly recognise him being Yota. They go to the past when Choji lost his kunai’s they all go look for it when they hear a boy’s voice cry, at the same time it starts to rain on a sunny day. They see the boy who is stuck by the kunai’s from Choji. Choji wants to get his kunai back however, Shikamaru seems to be slipping away. Somehow the tree on which they’re trying to get him from topples over and Yota laughs when the rains stop.
Shikamaru and the others find out that he’s an Edo Tensei, he begins to cry and they’re attacked by a large water, they now jump to miss it, because of the Edo Tensei, he cannot control it himself. When they met Yota they first think that he may be lonely, he calls Choji fat when they start to fight, he falls and tells them that he needs food. They give him some food but asks for more.
Ino makes him cry for not having any food, it seems that the rain is making all of them upset, they begin to cry for no apparent reason. At the battlefield, they keep on being attacked by a number of different attacks, Sakura is also being bugged by Yota. We move on to when Sakura notices that Ino, Shikamaru and Choji are secretly taking people’s food.
She follows them and notice that they’ve gone to a place. Yota comes out and notices Sakura, he calls her forehead, she’s found and Yota quickly begins to make snow happen. The snow from Sakura starts to get intense, the rain does the same and so does the lightning. Naruto keeps on getting closer and closer to them. Naruto Shippuden 313 ends here.
Well, it was an okay episode, I’m not going to say bad things about the fact that this stupid episode was a filler. Naruto doesn’t want to end and thus wants to have as many war episodes from the manga later on, so I guess it’s possibly the best time. If you’re interested in this episode, Naruto Shippuden 314, titled “The Sad Sun Shower”, will feature and carry on when Naruto is also faced with Yota. We’ll have to wait and see what happens during next week’s episode.
Naruto Shippuden 310 finishes this filler series, unfortunately there will be more next week. We see the Akatsuki consisting of Sasori and Deidara go into the nation to which they capture it. Lord Shu goes out to see his own town. Naruto is found, Tatewaki has to fight Sasori which he unfortunately loses. He finds out that both Shu and Chiyo are okay, he then disappears after finding out that he’s peace has been reached.
Naruto Shippuden 310 begins with Choji bringing his price back, Ino and Shikamaru both screw at him for nearly doing the wrong thing. Lord Shu is removed from the package, they’re in an inn within the town, he wants to look out to see everything within that town, he mentions that tomorrow he wants to go sightseeing as he’s never gone before while he was a hostage.
The next day, Naruto wakes up, within his normal form, he asks where he is, he quickly transforms into Lord Shu, Lord Shu is also woken up, he’s told by Shikamaru that everything’s okay and that they won’t ask about anything. Naruto is quickly eating all he can, Lord Shu on the other hand has never see the food in front of him.
They get out from the Inn and move to go to see the different places. Sasori and Deidara surround the town seeing how they can take over, Deidara is given the objective to see whats going on. Choji’s competitors are at the place they went, he tries to compete with them there.
Naruto’s falling asleep during the literacy lesson they’re faced with. Chiyo pinches him to wake him up when he quickly starts reading. Shu and the others move onto another place to which Shikamaru notices how Naruto might be doing. Shu goes to the bathroom when he’s asked by Shikamaru not to sneak away back to the castle or else they won’t be there to help him when trouble strikes.
Naruto trains with Tatewaki to which Naruto attacks but doesn’t succeed. Naruto jumps and it’s notices, Tatewaki keeps on attacking hard, pushing him back, then asks who he is, Naruto escapes from that position to only be attacked by Chiyo. Naruto’s cover is blown, they quickly ask where Shu is. Naruto gets out and creates a number of clones, Tatewaki stops him but it’s a clone.
He notices that all the other clones are going to the main gate, which means that he’s going to go to the back gate. Naruto meets Chiyo out of nowhere, they start talking about nonsense but Chiyo gets to the point to ask where Shu is. Ino checks on Shu but only finds out that he’s gone back to the castle. Naruto mentions that he’s safely been removed from the castle, he’s probably gone back to his village.
Tatewaki arrives asking where he is, he answers and mentions that it’s a good thing, Naruto is confused, he asks why because he was hired by the castle. He mentions that he’s only wish is to follow bring peace, if Shu is happy and in peace in his own village then yes he will allow it, he tells Naruto to take care of Shu.
Explosions occur to the gates by Deidara, Sasori tells him that they want to take over the village, not destroy it. He sends a number of his puppets down to the place. Naruto is told that he should take Chiyo and go to Shu’s place, he should also take care of him. Shikamaru goes to find Naruto, Shu follows and so do Choji and Ino.
The Puppets start to kill a number of soldiers, Tatewaki protects Chiyo but the second puppet gets in, thus Naruto has to use his Rasengan. Shikamaru notices that Shu followed him. Tatewaki tells Naruto to take care of Chiyo while he goes to save her father. Tatewaki asks for Naruto’s name, and that he won’t ever forget it.
Tatewaki goes and destroys a number of puppets, he finds Sasori to which he fights, unfortunately he’s a lot more powerful thus Tatewaki takes hits from his poisonous attacks. He dies at this point. Yamato covers their back, he reports this back to Tsunade telling that both Shu and Chiyo were taken back to Shu’s town.
Naruto tells the story to Edo Tatewaki while he tries to attack him. Tatewaki drops his sword, he then tells Naruto that he wishes that he could see them again, then mentions that he no longer has any regrets, at this point his body starts to degrade and the Edo Tensei on him fails. Naruto Shippuden 310 ends here.
A good episode, although it was nothing to do with the actual arc it was a good episode. Just like any season for Naruto arc, there will be more episodes next week with Naruto Shippuden 311, titled “Prologue of Road to Ninja”, when we see the prologue to the Road to Ninja movie, it has been previously released on manga so it should be pretty good.
Naruto Shippuden 309 filler episode moves onto an old story when Naruto, Shikamaru, Choji and Ino went on a A-Level mission to which they were suppose to kidnap a young boy to bring him back to his homeland. Naruto and the others go on an adventure to which Choji and Naruto have to go through a Food Contest which Choji nearly wins.
Naruto Shippuden 309 begins as Naruto runs towards the enemy and battlefield. He notices something strange, he meets with a couple of people as well as an reanimation, he finds out that the person facing him is a Samurai which he’s previously seen before, he’s name being Tatewaki. Naruto meets him and thus he asks about those two.
We move to the past where Naruto, Shikamaru, Ino and Choji receive an A Level mission to which they have to go a head to get a boy which is found in a castle. The young boy is a lord and thus has to be returned to their homeland as he’s being captured by the castle itself. Yamato is told to keep on eye on them as well as collect suspicious activity.
Deidara and Sasori are talking, they’re met up with Hidan and Kakuzu to which they get their mission to capture a piece of small land to which they can give to a bigger place. Hidan and Kakuzu take the mission to go for the money to get rid of people they want dead. They need to take the land over, not blow it up.
Naruto and the others reach the land, Shikamaru tells them the only safe way to enter the fortified place is to enter a contest, it’s not a battle but in fact a food battle to which it seems like Choji will most likely win. However it seems like Choji cannot win, as they don’t need the larger price. Naruto will change into the young lord when Ino takes him to a safe place.
They enter the 63rd food battle. The first thing they need to get through is bean jam cakes, they all start eating quickly, Naruto doesn’t seem to like what he’s eating, Choji is taking it one by one. Shikamaru and Ino notice the young boy as well as the Samurai. Naruto cleans his plate but can’t seem to be coping. The next meal is Ramen, Naruto is quickly depressed that he’s getting it now.
He looks at the portion which quickly scares him and he can’t seem to eat it since he’s just way to full. Lord Shu is taken away to go for his training. Choji quickly notices he’s competition, Naruto loses this battle as he can’t even get through this round. Naruto tells Choji to do his best, they enter the castle to which they will then do their next challenge.
Lord Shu trains with Tatewaki, he’s going way to hard on him, when a girl appear to tell Tatewaki that he’s training is way to hard. He also tells him that he needs to train, however Shu just says that it won’t change anything as he’s just a captive there. The next challenge begins, they’re told to do their best. The next challenge begins with eating 100 pieces of sushi as quickly as possible. Ino transfers her mind into Shu, he asks to go to the bathroom, Tatewaki follows.
Shu appears, Naruto turns into him, Shikamaru gives the message to Shu. Choji, the woman and the man win and go to the final rounds. Naruto swiftly replaces Lord Shu, he’s asked a few questions but it seems like he’s gotten away with it. Choji’s next challenge is to eat through a bunch of BBQ pork and such. He’s going very quickly with the woman, and the man by he’s side. The woman enables her moves, and so does the man.
Choji’s just going as quickly as he can, they see he’s massive taste for BBQ, Choji’s last mean arrives when Shikamaru stops him using his shadow, the man gets in and Choji gets the second place. Choji would have won, the man gets a house, Choji gets a large gift basket, the woman get a smaller basket. The food contest ends here, Naruto Shippuden 309 also ends here.
A good filler episode, but all these filler episodes are getting somewhat boring, hopefully it’ll get better during next week’s Naruto Shippuden 310, titled “The Fallen Castle”, when the filler continues with Naruto being found, Sasori and Deidara go to the castle to take it over, Shu quickly wants to do something about what’s currently going on.
Naruto Shippuden 305 ends this part of the story with Naruto bravely smashing his way into the barrier using a large Rasen Shuriken. He then uses his own powers to destroy it from the inside out. Shikamaru and the others face a stronger Sound Four after he pisses them off into enabling their true evil power which over powers any and all powers the Shinobi’s have.
Naruto 305 begins as Shino keeps on trying to get Neji, Kiba and Akamaru, he falls out of nearly running out of energy but then tells Hinata that he has to keep on going to get them back. Thus he’s going to give up. Ino is doing the same thing and just keeps on going. Naruto talks to HQ where he connects with Shikaku to ask for his help, he’s told to just keep on going with his mission and not care for whats current happening to them.
Naruto screams at Shikaku as he’s not even watching out for his son. Before this, Shikaku explains what has actually happened to them which he does, he also adds that he’s an asset which can’t be just used on just four people. After he’s done talking, he’s told that he should just concentrate on his mission, he gets off to do what he does best.
Shikamaru and the others face the Sound Four, unfortunately they can’t seem to be making a dent on anything they do. Kiba and Akamaru try to attack, they’re stopped by the rock person, Neji tries to help them on his face but both of them fail to get any closer to them. Neji’s targeted by an arrow but Choji helps him out.
Choji is then faced by the animals which push him back, the walls release a mechanisms on the door, Shikamaru uses his shadow to bring Choji back. He uses the release mechanisms to topple over the walls destroying them completely. The Sound Four then mention that they’re being underestimated. Shikamaru mentions the same thing, at the same time he tries to provoke them calling them tools of war.
Out of nowhere the Sound Four go on to mention that they’re not part of this war, they mention that they were given all they have by Orochimaru. They are first met with Orochimaru when they defeat all other opponents for those four spots. They were the favored ones. They mentions that they saw Orochimaru’s powers as he brought back both Tobirama and Hashirama. At his weakest he tells them that they can kill him but they only want one thing.
They mention that what they want is just more power, Orochimaru tells Kabuto to add them to the test he’s currently performing. After some time, they’re being put on a place where Kabuto seems to be doing his experiments on them. It utilizes the power of their hatred and makes it stronger, mostly directed at the person they were defeated against.
They face Shikamaru and the others, this time they go onto upgrading their powers showing them their real powers, they have a purple low to them which fill the barrier with hate. Naruto keeps on looking and it seems like he may be going the correct way. Choji’s being pushed around, he’s even attack badly, Neji’s also unable to block himself correctly. They all seem to be pushed down. Kiba and Akamaru can’t even get a scratch on their opponent. Shikamaru is also pushed down after not being able to do anything.
It seems like the Sound Four could easily kill them, but they seem to be holding back. Shikamaru keeps on mocking them, he’s picked up by the head. Shikamaru is told to remember what he said outside about how someone can detect evil thing, he mentions that it’s Naruto’s powers that he was talking about. Not everyone knows, only a select few know.
Shikamaru goes on to explain that they may seem like they’re fighting alone, but they’re got more than them on their team. A large rumble sounds where the barrier seems to be breaking. Shikamaru seemed to have this idea that Naruto would sense it. Naruto completes construction his Rasen Shuriken. Shikamaru and the others are targeted out of nowhere Inoichi releases them and Naruto comes in.
They notice that they’re in danger with the barrier like that. They also notice how they know Naruto and that they should get their revenge on him, they start running at them, Naruto does the same to them. He breaks the barrier, everyone returns to their bodies and it seems like Naruto knows that this is just the start, thus he needs to complete what he wants to do as quickly as possible. Naruto Shippuden 305 ends here.
The end to this filler series finishes, but unfortunately it seems like there are more filler episodes on the way with next week’s Naruto Shippuden 306, titled “The Heart’s Eyes”, being about Hinata and Neji’s past and how they used to be. Even if it’s a filler, it usually has some connection to the overall story, so can’t wait for that.
