The Fourth Great Shinobi War has started and it’s all going down! Sai, Omoi and a couple of other Shinobi’s find a couple of enemies who are under the Edo Tensei. Sai and Omoi are attacked by Zabuza, Haku, Gari and Pakura, when Kakashi comes to save them. A lot of past fights is shown here as Naruto played a significant part in helping Zabuza realize that Haku loved him. The Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist Return!
Naruto Shippuden 265 starts with Sai, Omoi and other Shinobi’s flying on top of birds created by Sai. Zabuza, Haku, Gari and Pakura are going along when Sai sends some smaller birds with paper bombs attached to them. This gives Haku enough the time to create an ice barrier to protect both Haku and Zabuza. Zabuza notices that even if they are dead, they will be just be returned back to their old state. Sai and Omoi signal a red smoke so Kakashi and them can come to help.
Haku uses his technique to create an ice mirror on top of Sai and Omoi and someone else. This destroys the bird and they fall to the ground. Sai, Omoi and the third person notice that they are Kekkei Genkai Shinobi’s, except for Zabuza. Zabuza, Haku, Gari and Pakura go for the attack when Kakashi, Might Gai, Lee and another person comes to help them. Sai thanks Kakashi for the help.
Zabuza tells Kakashi that the day they were at the bridge, he was supposed to die and go to hell. Kakashi explains that this is the living world, he is under the Edo Tensei Technique which was cast upon them by someone from the Akatsuki. Zabuza and Haku both notice Sakura, he says that she’s matured well. Zabuza then asks Kakashi how Naruto is doing, Zabuza says that he should be popular and well-known now. Kakashi replies that the bridge they were on is now called the Great Naruto Bridge, even the village calls him the Miraculous Hero for his well-doing.
Kakashi thanks both of them because they allowed Naruto to find his Ninja way, he even pledged at their grave and is now a great shinobi, he will now become even stronger because of his past experience with them.
At the cave where Kabuto lies, he has Anko under some kind of seal where he’s able to obtain all of Orochimaru’s chakra which he had placed on Anko. This strengthened the seal of the Edo Tensei and powered up the Edo Tensei itself, which literally powered up Zabuza, Haku, Gari and Pakura. Zabuza and Haku both tell Kakashi to do what ever they need to stop them because they are unable to do so by themselves. Kakashi agrees and he’s willing to kill them for this sake. All four of them are loosing their consiousness because of the seal getting stronger. There is a flash back to when Kakashi was fighting Zabuza and when Naruto fought Haku.
Haku tells Kakashi to stop them because last time Haku wasn’t able to protect his master, Zabuza. Kakashi corrects her because he was able to protect him during his battle with Zabuza at the bridge, Zabuza tells Kakashi to stop but he doesn’t there is another flash back to when Haku had saved Zabuza. This time Naruto cries for how Haku had died even if he doesn’t know him, Zabuza is seen crying because he knew that he had cared for him. Zabuza grabs a kunai with his mouth and kills all of them, then lies to die at the side of Haku.
Haku notices how much Zabuza had done after his death and drops a tear, at this point the bond of the Edo Tensei is being intensified and they lose their consciousness completely. Someone tells Kakashi, that the guy is Gari who was a former member of the Demolitions Unit captain just like Deidara. And the girl is Pakura is a Scorch Style Kekkei Genkai user from the Hidden Sand.
The battle starts, Zabuza starts with Ninja Art: Hidden Mist Jutsu which fills the whole battle field with a misty looking disabling them to see anything. Kakashi tells them form a 4 man cell team where they face 12, 3, 6 and 9 O’clock to prevent them from attacking any of them.
Haku and Zabuza attack first, Kabuto notices that the bond between the seal and the person is much stronger as they are able to become more stronger and follow orders directly, as expected from Orochimaru’s chakra, he’s able to overwrite his own control tag, even when he wanted to psychologically torment the enemy on a personal level.
Pakura attacks everyone using her Scorch Style Super Steam Kill which evaporates all the water molecules in their body leaving them in a dry and a mummified state. Kakashi fights Zabuza. Kabuto introduces 6 more people to that battle to even things out a little. Gari and Pakura use a Summoning Jutsu to call forth 6 large coffin like members which introduce them.
Zabuza backs up a little, the coffins open up and everyone is shocked at the sight! They can’t believe who has arrived. The Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist Appear! Naruto Shippuden 265 ends here!
Wow! What an epic episode that was! I can’t believe that the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist had showed up, and specially to fight Kakashi and Gai! That’s just awesome! I can’t possibly wait for next week’s Naruto Shippuden 266 when the Seven Swordsmen will continue their fight with the Allied Forces, and Kabuto will continue with his Edo Tensei!
