In lieu of the AMAZING SUCCESS of The YGO vs. Pokemon series, Icehawk (and his extraordinarily large penis) decided to pursue another anime venture, in order to take a break from the more childish YGO/Pokemon series. The choice ended up being Naruto vs. One Piece. Icehawk watches the shows and compares them. He has never seen either show before.

EPISODE 28[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 28: I WON'T DIE! FIERCE BATTLE! LUFFY VS. KRIEG!

Krieg fires the poison gas...

XD Luffy freaks out as the poison comes... but a gas mask appears. It expodes, Luffy has a mask on. I bet it was Gin's. Yep, it was. Gin is in bad shape. Krieg is an ass about it. Sanji is upset. The crew talks about how Gin was the hardest worker Don ever had. Sanji puts a gas mask on, and they are going to get him an antidote.

PISSED LUFFY! He charges in, Don throws some bombs and fires his gun. Luffy is getting hit. BUT HE IS STILL RUNNING! GOMU GOMU.... SPIKE SHIELD FROM KRIEG! PISTGOL GO! IT HITS THROUGH THE SPIKES! KRIEG FALLS! LUFFY IS A BADASS OMG!!!

Luffy still has bullets in his skin. Man, that was awesome. Luffy pulls some out, blood is all over him. Ouchies.

Krieg now gets up and strikes, but Luffy dodges and KICKS! Krieg is down again! The pirates are freaking out.

Krieg is back up, he strikes, DODGED AGAIN! Krieg's best weapon is out, the great battle spear, it explodes on impact.

He does it again, Luffy flies backwards. The parts of the ship are seperated, so Luffy cant fight like he wants. He is dodging Krieg now. He is now holding onto the weapon, it gets slammmed down, Luffy goes flying, Krieg with another strike, LUFFY BLOCKS IT WITH HIS HANDS? WHY?

Luffy is toasted, he falls to the ground, all blackened. Now Krieg hits Luffy again, ouch. Luffy gets up, to Krieg's surprise. WHAT! KRIEG SWINGS AND LUFFY PUNCHES AT THE SAME TIME!

LUFFY IS UP! ANOTHER EXPLOSION! Luffy flies again, He gets up again! KRIEG ATTACKS AGAIN! EXPLOSION! LUFFY IS UP AGAIN! HE BROKE THE SPEAR WITH HIS FOOT! OMG!!!

He punched it everytime he was stuck, it finally broke.

Overall: Badass fight, one of the better OP episodes so far probably.




NARUTO EPISODE 28: EAT OR BE EATEN: PANIC IN THE FOREST!

Sasuke jumps FIRE STYLE, he dodges, KUNAI CLASH! EPIC! Sasuke now frees Naruto, but the ninja hits him with bomb kunai and gets behind him. Naruto saves him!

SHARINGAN BY SASUKE! HE STABS HIM! NICE! The dude now runs. That was sweeeeeeeeet.

Sakura did nothing lol, they have a password now so they can tell who is who.

Now a huge burst of wind comes at them. THREE NINJA APPEAR! The crew is hiding.

They come back out... Sasuke asks Sakura for the password. She gets it. Now Naruto arrives... HE SAYS THE PASSWORD PERFECTLY! IT'S A FAKE! OMG! SASUKE ATTACKS XD I KNEW IT!

The person now shows themself. Sasuke says the password was a trap. Naruto meanwhile got hit by that wind blast, he is back up... but he is getting corrnered by a GIANT snake! WTF! It attacks, but Naruto dodges... NOW IT HAS HIM WRAPPED! IT EATS HIM! WTF! NARUTO GOT EATEN WTF.

Something happens and Sasuke is freaking out, he saw his own death in her eyes. Sakura is freaking out even worse. WTF.

NARUTO IS STILL IN A SNAKES STOMACH! He is attacking it from the inside. Seriously, WTF >_>.

Naruto keeps sliding down...

Sasuke and Sakura can barely move, the ninja is gonna kill them, she promises to make it quick. She throws 2 kunai at them...

Meanwhile, NARUTO IS STILL IN THE STOMACH. WTF WTF.

BOTH THE KUNAI FROM THE NINJA MISSED. Sasuke and Sakura are gone, wtf. Apparently Sasuke stabbed his own leg to awaken himself, wow.

Naruto now uses Shadow clone to EXPLODE THE SNAKE lol. Awesome.

Now a GIANT SNAKE goes for Sasuke and Sakura. They barely dodge it. The sharingan shows that girl ninja, she is making these things I guess. Oh wait, she was inside of it?

The girls is going for the attack, NARUTO IS HERE! BADASS!

Naruto: Oh and by the way, what was that password again?

lol

Overall: Whoa, pretty intense episode. The whole paralyzed by fear thing, and naruto inside of a snake didn't make for the most action packed episode, but I still liked it a lot.


BLEACH EPISODE 28: ORIHIME IS BEING TARGETED

I listened to the OP like 4 times, officially like it a lot now, more than OP1.

Ichigo is running after Ganju now. The guy chasing him is the 5th seed of squad 11. Oh, I wasn't aware they all had ranks like Baroque Works, thats awesome. I always love when the enemies strength is clearly defined like that. Ichigo yells loudly for Ganju, and gets found by some reapers. He runs. LOL, the screen moves to like a pac-man format as Ichigo runs.

Ganju gets trapped by another giant pit. Ganju dodges an attack. But he is hurt.

Ganju says that Ichigo screaming means he beat his guy. He was the 3rd best fighter in squad 11, he uses the distraction to throw a bomb and get away. Now he gets slashed. But he is still OK. NOW THE GUY DISAPPEARS, HE IS BEHIND HIM, Ganju gets slashed again. He is hanging on at the edge of the pit. He now uses his sand skill, AND GETS THE REAPER INTO THE PIT, AND HE GETS OUT.

But now they are both out. Face to face. Ganju now uses his secret technique, sand emerges from everywhere. But he jumps out of it. GANJU THROWS A BOMB ON HIS HEAD! EXPLOSION! FIREWORKS! Ichigo sees the fireworks. He defeated 4 of the dudes who were after him.

We see Orihime and Ishida, Orihime gets attacked! He's a huge guy. Orihime dodged.

WOW, it wasn't Orihime who dodged. Ishida got there and back that quickly. He is way faster now. Being around a soul reaper makes him stronger, since he hates them.

Attack, Ishida and Orihime dodge. WHAT, he throws sand in Ishida's face, and Ishida falls, he is grabbing the ledge. The guy wants to fight Orihime. FAIRY TIME! NINJA FAIRY! He attacks, NO, HE GETS PWNED. He disappears. Noooo. The reaper says that move wont work on soul reapers since she is not fighting to kill, Orihime cant move. The reaper attacks, HE IS STRUCK! ISHIDA! ISHIDA HAS THE INTENT TO KILL! FUCK YEAH!

They can't go one episode without a shot of "Emokia". Thats my clever way of talking about Rukia.

Ichigo is surrounded by like 40+ reapers. They all seem to be lower level ones though. Ichigo runs.

The reaper is showing his true from now. He has a bunch of shuriken now. He has a long-range attacker. 4th seed of squad 7. Interesting.

ISHIDA IS PWNING HIM. He shoots him with his bow and destroys all his projectiles. God, Ishida is so badass.

Overall: Man, this is awesome. I truly get a vibe of war from this arc. They are doing a great job of showing the scope of this battle. Also, these episodes are just constant battling, and Bleach has great battles. Another good episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 28

VERY tough decision. I had to think it over.

Great moments? Luffy running and punching Krieg through the spike shield was amazingly badass. Naruto had the end with naruto showing up, and Sasuke stabbing itself. Small edge to One Piece.

Overall plot/dialog naruto has the advantage I'd say.

But OP had a long fight scene, and a good one, while Naruto wasn't all that exciting most of the time. One Piece barely takes it.

Naruto: 16

One Piece: 12


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Geez, this is tough as all 3 were quite good. One Piece had probably the best Baratie arc episode here with an intense Krieg fight, Bleach had good fights, and so did Naruto. I think One Piece was the best, as it was just a very solid fight all the way through. Naruto had too many slow points to beat Bleach, so OP > Bleach > Naruto.

Bleach: 31

Naruto: 28

One Piece: 25

EPISODE 29[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 29: THE CONCLUSION OF THE DEADLY BATTLE! A SPEAR OF BLIND DETERMINATION!

Krieg attacks again, Luffy is dodging. He breaks off the mast of a ship and THROWS IT AT KRIEG! KRIEG SHOOTS FIRE AT IT TO BLOCK IT. God damn he has a lot of weapons >_>.

GOMU GOMU NO GATLING GUN! HE IS HITTING THE ARMOR! Krieg isn't hurt.

GOMU GOMU NO PISTOL! KRIEG IS HURT THIS TIME! YESSSS! WHAT! NOW HE THROWS LUFFY! EXPLOSION! How did Krieg get hurt by the shot through the spikes, but not these?

Now Krieg jumps to the top of some mast. Luffy runs up it... GOMU GOMU NO BAZOOKA!!!! HE NAILS HIM!!!! But Luffy got hurt it looks like, and Krieg seems to be ok...

HIS ARMOR IS BREAKING! WHAT!!! But Krieg says Luffy is done for. Bombs start going off all over the place. The ship Luffy was on is breaking, Luffy obviously can't fall into the sea. Now LUFFY EMERGES FROM THE SMOKE! BAZOOKA!!! THE ARMOR BREAKS COMPLETELY!!

Krieg is still alive though, he uses a net on Luffy! I think he is going to drag Luffy into the sea. They are heading downwards. Luffy now uhh does some twisting thing with his arms and legs, and GRABS THE HEAD OF KRIEG!

GOMU GOMU NO.... SLEDGEHAMMER! It's like a seismic toss in Pokemon except he also gets spun around like 100 times. Krieg is officially owned I think, BUT LUFFY FALLS INTO THE WATER! Thats bad isn't it?

Yeah, Zeff now tells Sanji that he should probably save Luffy, so Sanji does so.

Oh no, Luffy's net has him trapped. Sanji gets him out, meanwhile he thinks about the whole crew of the Going Merry.

Sanji is afraid Luffy is dead... but it turns out he is just sleeping lol.

Meanwhile Krieg is unconscious but he still gets up screaming about how he must win.

GIN PUNCHES HIM. He wants to start over with Krieg. Gin tells Luffy they will meet again on the Grand Line.

Meanwhile, Nami is sailing off... and she starts crying! Yeah thats right *****.

Overall: Satisfying conclusion to the fight, wasn't a huge fan of all the Gin stuff afterwards, but whatever, good ep.




NARUTO EPISODE 29: NARUTO'S COUNTERATTACK: NEVER GIVE IN!

Sasuke wants Naruto to run away.

Sasuke is going to give up the scroll now, WTF. He wants her to leave them in peace. Sasuke you baby. He tosses it to her... NARUTO SWIPES IT! HELL YEAH! HE PUNCHES SASUKE! HELL YEAH AGAIN!

Naruto says that he isn't Sasuke. Naruto asks when Sasuke became a coward.

Whoa, the girl now marks some blood on her arm, Naruto jumps in, Summoning jutsu... it's getting windy, ANOTHER GIANT SNAKE! Naruto dodges barely.

Meanwhile, outside of the cage, 3 corpses are outside of the gates. Theres something strange about them. Also, their faces are gone, wtf.

There is someone here "him". According to the proctor. WHAT!!! THE PERSON THEY ARE FIGHTING IS THE ONE WHO DID THIS! WTF!!! HE STOLE THIS GUYS FACE!!! OMG OMG! THEY ARE FIGHTING A LEGIT NINJA. HOLY CRAP.

Naruto now gets hit, and falls, they are going to finish him... WHAT! RED EYES BY NARUTO! HE PUNCHES THE SNAKE! HELL YEAH NINE TAILED NARUTO!!!

HE ATTTACKS THE SNAKE! KILL IT! KILL IT! NARUTO IS OWNING!!!

NO, now the ninja blows fire at Naruto, he falls again.

Now the snake is going for Sasuke. Sasuke still can't move it seems... NARUTO! NARUTO! NARUTO STOPPED THE SNAKE! AND STUCK A KUNAI IN IT!

HE STILL HAS RED EYES! HELLLLLLLL YEAH! HE CALLS SASUKE A SCAREDY CAT! Same line Sasuke used on him last arc!

The snakes tongue now lifts Naruto into the air... wait, it's the ninjas tongue >_>.

The ninja now hits NAruto with some sort of seal, that Im guessing seals the fox.

Naruto's Eyes are back to normal, NO! NO! The ninja takes the scroll. Sakura actually saves Naruto from falling to the ground and dying, Meanwhile, Sasuke is still too scared. Why would this ninja care about getting these scrolls anyway?

NOW SAKURA CALLS SASUKE A COWARD! SASUKE IS PISSED AGAIN! He is ready to fight.

Overall: I always love Naruto's nine-tailed transformation. Awesome episode.


BLEACH EPISODE 29: BREAKTHROUGH! THE DEATH GOD'S ENCOMPASSING NET

Ishida has complete control of this fight. The guy admits that Ishida is better. Ishida decides to let him live, SO HE IS GOING TO ATTACK ORIHIME. ISHIDA KNEW IT! HE IS SO FAST! ISHIDA KILLS HIS ASS! Well, he makes it so he won't be a soul reaper anymore, sounds good enough.

Ichigo finds Ganju, they are both running from mobs! Fight time! They pwned some of the mob. Ganju says they are screwed though.

Some squad 4 guy stumbles into Ichigo and Ganju, so they take him hostage to escape >_>.

Squad 11 doesn't care. Squad 4 is the medic squad, they don't care if the squad 4 guy dies! Lololol. They attack! WHAT! WALL EXPLODES ON THE ATTACK! So now Ichigo jumps into battle, it was Chad! A bunch of guys are down.

Chad comes across more reapers. Looks like he is about to destroy them.

Some Squad 12 guy is interrogating Iikaku about his fight with Ichigo, but he says nothing. The squad 11 captain shows up now. Iikaku tells the Captain he will enjoy a great fight with Ichigo, he says Ichigo keeps getting stronger as he fights.

Ichigo and Ganju are in some building, the squad 4 guy is with them >_>. He knows about Rukia! He will help them! He knows the way into the repentance tower!

Overall: This was a pretty uneventful episode, the first few minutes was fight with Ishida we already saw, and then some flunky fights, meh


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 29

Naruto is just awesome right now, I feel like this arc is going to be way better than the Land of Waves arc. One Piece was good, but not quite on Naruto's level.

Naruto: 17

One Piece: 12


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Naruto had a nine-tailed transformation and takes the win easy. One Piece had a solid arc-ending fight conclusion, and Bleach was pretty uneventful. Naruto > OP > Bleach is the easy decision. Naruto is within 1 of Bleach!

Bleach- 31 Naruto- 30 One Piece- 26


EPISODE 30[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 30: SET SAIL! THE SEAFARING COOK SETS OFF WITH LUFFY!

Sanji still says he isn't going. He still has stuff to do here.

They are now eating dinner with the rest of the cooks, the cooks call out Sanji for his soup being disgusting. All of them say it sucks. Sanji is getting pissed.

Now the owner says his soup is disgusting. Sanji runs away pissed. Luffy says the soup is great, and everyone agrees. Sanji overhears this, that they just want him to go to the grand line.

Luffy says he won't take him though unless he says yes.

Now umm a shark swims into the restaurant, he has Yosaku in his mouth. He says they know where Nami is headed, but it is a dangerous place. As they are leaving Sanji joins the crew, Luffy dances, lol.

On Luffy's way out, he takes tons of food, haha. Zeff offers Luffy his journal, but he refuses. Zeff thought he would.

Lots of flashbacks. Now everyone starts crying as Sanji departs, hahaha, awesome.

Meanwhile Nami appears to be on her way to somewhere scary looking!

Overall: Mostly a set up episode, it had its moments, but mostly kinda boring.




NARUTO EPISODE 30: THE SHARINGAN REVIVED: THE DRAGON FLAME JUTSU!

Sasuke is now ready to fight! Sharingan! He charges in! Intense fist fight!

This ninja is incredibly strong and fast but Sasuke can see her. Sasuke shoots fire, and then dodges an earth attack. Awesome fight!

HOLY CRAP! SASUKE DODGES, CATCHES HER IN MIDAIR, AND PILEDRIVES HER TO THE GROUND FROM LIKE 100 FEET!

THE BODY MELTS, IT WAS SUBSTITUTION.

Now Sasuke is getting punched! Damn. He's down. Sakura is useless as usual.

BOMBS BLOW UP! He planted bombs on her! Nice! Now he starts using netting to trap her. YES! FIRE STYLE! NAILS HER! HELL YEAH! SHE SCREAMS!

WHAT! SHE BREAKS FREE OF THE NET!

IT WAS SOMEONE FROM THE SOUND VILLAGE. He knows Sasuke's brother! WTF! HIS NECK NOW EXTENDS AND HE BITS SASUKE ON THE NECK! WTF! VAMPIRE?!? The guy now disappears, what the hell.

Sasuke is now down, Sakura cries.

The proctor now comes across the ninja. Whoa, this is her sensei? She uses snakes to grab him and throw him at trees.

She is now going to use a sacrifice jutsu to kill him... SUBSTITUTION JUTSU!

She throws a Kunai at him, he catches it. She looks like she is dying. She has that same mark as Sasuke just got, it's a curse of some sort. He wants Sasuke to serve him eventually I guess. He also says 3 of his followers are taking the test.

He tells her if she stops the exam, he will end the leaf village.

That proctor comes across a few ninja, she says to get the Hokage to the tower, she will explain everything there.

Sound village ninjas, followers of that evil dude are watching Sakura/Sasuke/Naruto...

'Overall: Intense action packed episode, that Sasuke fight was awesome. I do wonder where they go from here, but great ep.


BLEACH EPISODE 30: RENJI'S CONFRONTATION

Ooo, Renji eh? I support this.

OP is officially best of all the OPs I've seen in this topic. Which is, 6 others.

For the record, that would be. Bleach's 2nd OP > Naruto's 2nd OP > Naruto's 1st OP > Wonderland > Bleach's 1st OP > We Are > Naruto's 3rd.

The 4th squad guy is taking them through the sewers. He knows the way because 4th squad cleans them <_<. Ichigo wants to know why he is helping them. He is doing it because he has come to like her from his cleaning duties.

Squad 11 has been almost completely destroyed.

Ichigo gets angry when he hears about Rukia. Or uhh determined? Guilty? Anyway, he seems to have newfound resolve. They emerge in the closest opening to the white tower, but they still have a long way to go.

They come across... RENJI!!!! OH MAN!!!! SWEET MUSIC. STARE DOWN!!! Ganju says Renji's spiritual pressure is super strong. He is the lieutenant of squad 6.

They draw their swords. ICHIGO RUSHES IN! SLASH! SWORDS CLASH! TEST OF STRENGTH!

The 11th squad captain senses the fight. So does Ishida. So does Chad!

SWORDS STILL CLASHED!!! STAREDOWN! ATTACK! ANOTHER CLASH! Ganju says Ichigo says he has no chance! Another test of strength, RENJI IS GOING BACKWARDS! INTO A WALL!! Renji says even if Ichigo can beat him, he still has no chance. Ichigo doesn't care! Renji uses something to push Ichigo back. He transforms his sword, Ichigo barely blocks it! He's flying backwards, INTO A WALL, ouch.

Renji says he is way stronger in the spirit world. There are limits placed on his power in the outside world to protect it.

Ichigo asks if that was his best shot then, he grabs his sword. It didn't affect him at all! Although he is very bloody.

Overall: Kind of a slow episode, though the Renji fight was pretty solid, although it didn't take up much time. I'll say it was "OK" overall.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 30

I'm loving these exams, I think I like this arc better than the last one, another great episode for Naruto, ho-hum for One Piece, Naruto takes it.

Naruto: 18

One Piece: 12


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Naruto with an easy win here thanks to a badass fight. One Piece vs. Bleach is tricky because both weren't that great, but I'll give Bleach a very slight edge. It had some OK flashbacks and a piece of a decent fight. Naruto makes the comeback over the last 2 episodes though and manages to force a tie with Bleach!

Naruto- 32

Bleach- 32

One Piece- 26


EPISODE 31[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 31: THE WORST MAN IN THE EASTERN SEAS! FISHMAN PIRATE ARLONG!

I actually remember an Arlong getting briefly mentioned in the Baratie Arc.

Luffy, Sanji, and Yosaku are headed towards Arlong's base, after Nami. Luffy and Sanji have never heard of him, so Yosaku will explain. Arlong is a Merman who has been to the Grand Line.

There are 7 Pirates who are so strong, they are acknowledged by the government, and I guess they give the government a fixed percentage of their money? I'm not sure why they would want to do that.

One is Mihawk, One is a merman, Jinbei. Arlong fought alongside Jinbei on the grand line. Arlong is truly the most wicked pirate in East Blue, his power is greater than Krieg's.

Back to Nami... apparently Arlong's base is her hometown.

Arlong knows who Nami is! She works for him! WTF. She seems to be extremely popular with the mermen.

Now Usopp, Johnnie and Usopp are arriving on Arlong Park. Jesus, Zoro still has to be hurt, and then theres Usopp and Johnnie... this can't be good >_>. Zoro wants to rush in. So they tie up Zoro, Usopp says he will get Nami back. They are going to dock by the Going Merry, but Mermen are there, Usopp and Johnnie abandon ship and leave Zoro tied up >_>. 2 mermen go to investigate the ship. They are going to bring Zoro to Arlong it seems.

Usopp and Johnnie swim to land, and the village nearby is destroyed completely. All the buildings are upside down... Johnnie says he has heard Mermen have 10 times the strength of humans. A merman now arrives, Usopp almost gets caught. He ends up running into a hot chick, who is going to take him to her place. Johnnie is on his own now I guess.

Zoro is now before Arlong. He now sees Nami is aligned with Arlong. She is their cartographer.

Overall: Damn, Nami is a *****! There is A LOT happening right now, this was some pretty good/interesting stuff. Good episode.




NARUTO EPISODE 31: BUSHY BROW'S PLEDGE: UNDYING LOVE AND PROTECTION!

Oh boy, Rock Lee fight coming I assume!

Sasuke and Naruto finally wake up. SOund village guys attack, he turns into a snake... everyone's voices are gone... oh it was a dream.

But those sound village guys really are watching still...

Rock Lee meanwhile comes across a squirrel with a paper bomb on it, the sound village guys tried to send it at Sakura earlier, but she scared it off.

The sound village guys now confront Sakura. They want to kill Sasuke... Sakura laid a trap, but it sucks, LOL Sakura. She's so screwed... ROCK!!! IT'S ROCK!

One of the sound village guys attacks, Rock gets him to back off by doing some Earth jutsu. The sound village guy used his jutsu earlier in the entrance room, so he knows theres a trick to it.

Rock Lee's secret jutsu, the Lotus jutsu, the one he isn't supposed to use unless one condition is met, is about to be used. Rock says the condition has been met... to protect the life of someone precious.

Rock is super fast! He does a tornado piledriver type thing. But he's OK thanks to one of his teammates helping him out.

Now the sound guys are about to do something called "the wall". Rock is down.

Overall: Eh, not much happened really. Kind of a disappointing episode.


BLEACH EPISODE 31: THE RESOLUTION TO KILL

Ichigo is clearly very hurt, he can barely stand. Renji attacks. HE DODGED! No way! Renji is mad at Ichigo since Rukia being in trouble is his fault. Or you could help her escape with Ichigo. Geez.

Ichigo dodges another attack barely. Phew! Great animation. Now they run at each other. CLASH! CLASH! Another clash! The 4th squad guy thinks Ichigo is super screwed.

Ichigo blocks another attack. He appears very fatigued. But so does Renji. They are both breathing hard.

Renji attacks again, OH CRAP. It nails his shoulder. Another attack, Ichigo blocks it, and now knocks the sword away. Ichigo says he knows it's all his fault that Rukia is set to die, and thats why he WILL SAVE HER!!!

Ichigo says he thinks he figured it out. He says that Renji can only do 3 consecutive attacks via his special skill.

Ichigo charges! Renji strikes, ONE DODGE, SECOND DODGE! HE HITS AWAY THE THIRD! THE SWORD IS RETURNING! YESYES!!! ICHIGO ATTACKS, DODGED. NO. HE GETS NAILED. HIS SHOULDER IS CUT OPEN, BLOOD EVERYWHERE. CRAP.

Renji says Ichigo cannot save Rukia. He strikes to finish Ichigo off. Theres smoke everywhere.

The smoke is clearing... Ichigo stands up! He's alive!

We get a flashback of Kisuke and Ichigo talking about some technique Ichog did on accident when his back was against a wall. Kisuke attacks, Ichigo dodges and blocks a few attacks, Kisuke keeps striking, he sends Ichigo through a cliff.

Kisuke attacks again, and Ichigo barely dodges, it happens again.

Kisuke says Ichigo is filled with fear. This is a bad thing. He's afraid to kill, he's afraid to die, he's afraid to fail. ICHIGO IS NOW POWERING UP!!! WHAT? HIS EYES CHANGED COLORS!! HIS SWORD IS GLOWING!!! KISUKE AND ICHIGO CHARGE AT EACH OTHER, HUGE EXPLOSION. Kisuke says that was it.

Back to the present. Ichigo gets a determined look. He stares at Renji. HE RAISES HIS SWORD. HIS EYES CHANGE!!! HE FOUND HIS RESOLVE!!!!! POWER UP!!!!! POWER UP!!! YES YES YES!!!

ICHIGO JUMPS, DODGES AN ATTACK, DODGES A SECOND ATTACK, DODGES A THIRD!!! SWORD FLASHES!!! HES READY TO KILL! RENJI'S SWORD SHATTERS! EXPLOSION!!!! RENJI FLIES BACK AND HITS A WALL, HE'S BLEEDING!!! YES YES YES!!

Renji realizes he has lost.

Overall: Intense episode. Awesome action sequences, great animation, and an awesome Ichigo power up.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 31

The Arlong arc is already off to an interesting start, with some powerful foes being introduced, and a betrayal. Meanwhile, Naruto was a bit slower than previous episodes, One Piece takes it pretty easily.

Naruto: 18

One Piece: 13


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: The Arlong arc is starting back up in One Piece. But as I recall, it had a slow beginning, so I'm not sure if OP is gonna catch up at all considering Bleach and Naruto are at very good parts right now. However, OP beats Naruto this time since Naruto was kind of weak. Bleach tops them all though with an awesome fighting episode. Bleach takes the lead back.

Bleach- 34

Naruto- 32

One Piece- 27


EPISODE 32[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 32: WITCH OF COCOYASHI VILLAGE! ARLONG'S FEMALE LEADER!

To start ummm... A HUGE SWIMMING COW IS STARING AT LUFFY'S SHIP. It is eyeing their food. Luffy gets pissed! HE PUNCHES THE COW! DON'T TOUCH MY FOOD! But the cow is now super angry. Now Sanji kicks it... AND THEN DOES A SPECIAL MOVE ON IT! COW IS DOWN! YESSS, Sanji and Luffy go back to eating.

Back to Usopp and that hot chick, WHAT! THIS IS NAMI'S FOSTER SISTER!!! She and Nami were raised here, they were both orphans.

Zoro is still in front of Arlong, Arlong is talking about how Nami is so cold blooded, she even forgot about her mother's death for money, LOOK OF TERROR ON NAMI'S FACE! Zoro sees the sign of weakness, but doesn't say anything about it.

He now jumps into the pool even though he is all tied up. Maybe he is just trying to get Nami to save him... She does! Nami jumps in! Hahaha. She punches him, Zoro basically lets on that he knows this is an act.

Arlong is now going to Cocoyashi village, where Usopp currently is. Arlong shows up and is yelling at some guy for owning a weapon. Each of the 20 towns under him pay tribute, if anyone in a town can't pay he destroys the village.

Meanwhile, Nami frees Zoro from prison.

Arlong is about to execute that guy when, USOPP SLINGSHOTS HIM! Arlong is PISSED! HE PICKS UP THE HOUSE USOPP WAS STANDING ON! He slams it down! Usopp now runs.

Nami meanwhile shows up in town, she only needs 7 million more Beli to buy Cocoyashi village. So thats her goal.

And Zoro is free. XD. He is sitting on Arlong's chair wondering what to do next, while a bunch of mermen are down in front of him.

LUFFY'S SHIP IS NOW BEING CARRIED BY THE GIANT COW!! YESSS XD.

Overall: ANother pretty good episode, this isn't an action packed arc or anything so far, but the story is interesting and I like it.




NARUTO EPISODE 32: SAKURA BLOSSOMS!

She goes through puberty?! LOLOL.

Rock's ear hurts. He wears a gadget that uses the power of sound to do damage. Oh god we get another explanation on how this all works >_>.

They all have sound abilities it seems. The jutsu of the future.

SOUND GUY NOW ATTACKS SAKURA! LEE IS UP SOMEHOW! LEAF HURRICANE! But he still isn't 100%, sound guy attacks, BLOCKED, BUT NOW SOUND!!! LEE IS GETTING HIT BY THE SOUND!

Lee is gonna be finished off! Sakura says no!

Team Ino is watching all this. The I don't care guy wants to do something, but Ino is too scared.

Sakura tries fighting back but is failing, now she is grabbed from behind. Doesn't she have ANY cool jutsus?

Sakura is now crying... lol. But now she is getting angry at herself, for being completely useless.

WHAT, SAKURA USES HER KUNAI TO CUT HER HAIR OFF! So the girl can't grab it anymore. Awesome! Now we get flashbacks of Sakura getting saved, and Naruto and Sasuke doing sweet stuff.

They go to attack her, substitution, Sakura attacked again, another substitution.

SHE DIDN'T SUB THIS TIME! SHE PINS THE GUY DOWN! SHE BITES HIS ARM!

Ino and Sakura flashbacks now as Ino watches. Man, whats with all these girls being so obsessed with Sasuke. He doesn't care about ANY of you lol.

Sakura is getting beat in the face like a million times. Blood is pouring from her face.

Now the guy is gonna finish her off... TEAM INO!

Overall: Maybe a little too flashback heavy, but this episode had some pretty good moments, and it was nice to see Sakura do something for once, I liked it, quite a bit. The end was pretty cool too.


BLEACH EPISODE 32: STARS AND THE STRAY Oh god, FLASHBACK TIME FROM RENJI.

Renji was poor in some afterlife district. I love how the afterlife is practically the same thing as the real world with poor and rich and everything. I mean, that actually might be the most innovative afterlife idea I've ever seen, THE SAME DAMN THING AS THE LIFE YOU JUST LIVED.

Renji stole some crap one day when Rukia randomly showed up and saved them from the guy chasing them. Wait, I thought earlier they said people don't age in the afterlife. Anyway, she was extremely nice, but also tough.

Rukia met with some soul reaper some day, who was extremely kind to her.

Once they grew up, they decided to become soul reapers. It was the only way out of town, and the town was super crappy. WTF why does the afterlife suck so much. Well, District 78 does anyway.

At the soul reaper academy. They were hated on by the rich people. Rukia told him to continue to be himself. Renji swore to make the rich kids eat their words or something.

One day, nobility visited Rukia. They wanted to adopt Rukia, then she could graduate right away. Renji told her she should do it and didn't act jealous at all.

Renji now gets up in his fight. He says he's sick of being the stray dog. He doesn't have the guts to fight. All this time he has been blaming Ichigo, but he was wrong. It was Renji for not stopping her from joining the noble family.

Renji asks Ichigo to save Rukia. Ichigo says he will.

Overall: This was a pretty good and interesting flashback, even if the dynamics of the afterlife are weird as hell. It definitely made me like Renji a lot more, and the end with Renji essentially being on Ichigo's side now was pretty cool. Good ep.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 32

This one was close. One Piece has an interesting storyline, but Naruto had a lot of intense and emotional moments, I give it a slight edge.

Naruto: 19

One Piece: 13


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: All 3 episodes are pretty close this time around. I'd say Naruto takes the win, as it had a cool flashback, and some surprisingly awesome moments with Sakura. Bleach also had a pretty good flashback and a good finish, while One Piece was solid. Naruto > Bleach > OP this time around honestly. And scrolling through the next 5 episodes, OP might be lucky to even get a 2nd place until OP episode 37.

Bleach- 35 Naruto- 34 One Piece- 27


EPISODE 33[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 33: USOPP DEAD?! WHEN IS LUFFY GOING TO MAKE LANDFALL!?!?

Arlong's anger over Usopp cannot be controlled.

Usopp is running his ass off from the Mermen, now he uses some stink bomb type thing to get away. AHhh, now he gets caught by some other dude.

Zoro hears from an Octopus about how Usopp is being chased, so Zoro decides to find him.

Arlong comes back to his base, to find his comrades down. One tells him that it was Zoro, the pirate hunter.

Meanwhile, Usopp gets dragged into Arlong base. And Zoro just arrived at the village, ouch, bad timing.

At the base, one of Arlong's men says someone helped Zoro escape, they accuse Nami, Nami now comes out. Arlong says he trusts Nami, but some guy said he found something in her room, it's a map?

Now Zoro finds out that Usopp has been caught and RUNS BACK, lol.

Usopp wants to stall for time, so now he's going to fight Nami. Usopp shoots a smoke bomb... Nami now stabs him! Whoa. Usopp falls into the pool, "dead". lolol.

Luffy is finally almost to Arlong Park. The giant cow crashes, and they go flying into the air, they end up docking in a forest, and they run into Zoro! Johnny also finds them now, he says that Usopp is dead.

Overall: Eh, not that good like the start of the arc, lots of time wasting, only interesting thing to happen was Nami stabbing Usopp. Meh episode.




NARUTO EPISODE 33: BATTLE FORMATION: INO-SHIKA-CHO!

Cho wants to leave >_>. Now the sound guy calls him a fatso... CHO IS PISSED. LOL. HE'S JUST A LITTLE CHUBBY!

Cho now inflates? HE'S FREAKING BLANCA! HE ROLLS INTO A BALL! He comes at the sound ninja... and now jumps! Now Shika uses shadow possession on another guy... not sure what that does. Shika can control his movements!

Now Ino uses mind transfer... her mind is in that girls.

Blanca is still rolling after the other guy.

Ino threatens to kill the sound ninja girl, since she is in her mind, but the sound guys don't care. "Oops". Now Blanca is done rolling, he's all dizzy. And Shika's jutsu runs out.

NOW ROCK'S TEAM SHOWS UP!

WHAT, NOW SASUKE IS UP. He has that evil aura surrounding him. He has strange marks all over him. He says he now realizes that he needs power, even if he becomes consumed by evil. lulz.

Man Sasuke looks creepy! Sound guy now starts using Supersonic slicing wave... SASUKE IS BEHIND HIM! He nails him! FIRE STYLE! SHURIKEN IN THE FLLAMES! NOW SASUKE GETS BEHIND HIM! Sasuke BREAKS HIS ARMS! Oh god! That was awesome.

Sakura is now crying, she tells Sasuke to stop. The marks leave Sasuke, and he falls.

The sound guy says he will leave the scroll for them if Sasuke lets them go.

Sasuke doesn't know who he is...

Overall: Man, intense episode. Lol at Ino-Shika-Cho being so fail. I'm not sure if I like this direction with Sasuke, but still a good episode.


BLEACH EPISODE 33: MIRACLE! THE MYSTERIOUS NEW HERO

Apparently back in the real world, theres been lots of UFO sightings and crap lately.

Ichigo's sisters find a cat, and take it with them. Also, some hollows seem to be following them...

This is one of the 2 fillers... isn't it >_>.

The tv show guy is talking to Ichigo's sisters now. He wants to hang out with Ichigo. But Ichigo is gone.

Ichigo's other sister can now see hollows/wholes too. The tv show guy tries to fight them, but he's losing. Kisuke's shop guys come and save the day though.

Ichigo's sisters are talking to the shop guys. The shop guys say that the cat they picked up is already dead, and is leading the hollows to them. This offends Ichigo's sister who doesn't realize she can see ghosts now >_>.

Don wants to create a team of kids who fight hollows >_>.

He's putting this squad on TV, which makes them want to join. That would be one of the Kisuke's shop guys and one of Ichigo's sisters.

One of Ichigo's sisters is being attacked by hollows. But the cat glows and fights them off. Now Don shows up with the team. The girl member of the Kisuke shop shows up and saves the day though. Now more fighting. But more are showing up. Now they fuse into a huge ass hollow.

Whoa, the cat now transforms into a super cat/lion thing >_>. He pwns the hollow.

Now the team finishes him off.

Ichigo's sister now remembers when she saw the cat who helped save her die. She thought it would hold a grudge, but I guess it didn't. Now it passes on.

Overall: Obvious filler, not very good, though Don is funny. I've seenw orse fillers for these 3 shows.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 33

OP was a time waster (lol). Naruto was pretty intense, easy enough decision.

Naruto: 20

One Piece: 13


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Well, Naruto wins easy here. It was the only "very good" episode. Bleach vs. OP is actually pretty difficult, because OP had tons of time wasting, while Bleach wasn't the worst filler, but I'm gonna have to give OP the slight edge. Naruto > OP > Bleach. Naruto has the lead back! And this is a pretty important 2nd place for OP to stay close during the slow stretch of the Arlogn arc.

Naruto- 36 Bleach- 35 One Piece- 28


EPISODE 34[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 34: EVERYONE'S GATHERED! USOPP SPEAKS THE TRUTH ABOUT NAMI!

Luffy is PISSED when he hears about Nami. Nami now is here! She says they aren't friends at all. She says they can have their ship back, just leave the island.

Luffy now says he is going to sleep >_>. He refuses to leave the island. Nami says they can go ahead and die, and runs away.

Meanwhile, Marines are arriving on the island. They are here to rescue survivors of the destroyed Gosa village. AND THEY ARE ALSO GONNA ATTACK ARLONG! They fire a cannon at Arlong... ARLONG CATCHES IT IN HIS TEETH AND DESTROYS IT.

About 3 of the mermen go to fight all the marines. They remove the rudder from the ship. Now they create a giant whirlpool and destroy the ship. "Well then."

Usopp is running... he talks about what happened. Nami looks like she stabbed her own hand to save Usopp. DAMN. That's awesome.

Usopp now finds Zoro and crew!

Nami meanwhile is talking to her sister about Luffy and crew. She can't erase them from her heart.

Nojiko (the older sister) now arrives to Luffy and crew. She is going to tell them the reason Nami works for Arlong. Then she wants them to leave. Luffy says he doesn't care about Nami's past. The rest of them will listen though.

And another Marine ship is now arriving, it's the 16th fleet, the corrupt one, he wants to go to Nami's house.

Overall: Set up episode for FLASHBACK next episode, I am pretty interested in hearing it. There were some cool scenes with Nami, especially the truth behind the stabbing, but overall, a bit uneventful.




NARUTO EPISODE 34: AKAMARU TREMBLES: GAARA'S CRUEL STRENGTH!

All the leaf village people are talking, Ino and Sakura are friends again it seems.

Now we get to the group with Hinata, Shino, and dog guy. The dog is trembling because of "what happened".

Now we get a flashback or something. They have both scrolls already. Hinata uses her ability to find out that enemies are nearby, Kiba wants to check it out.

When they get there, Akamaru is shaking. The chakra levels are scaring him I guess.

It's Gaara and crew vs. 3 ninjas. Gaara doesn't even know what scroll they have, but they "looked at him the wrong way" so they are gonna die. Well then!

The ninja uses a rainstorm of needles... but Gaara blocks them all using the earth/sand. Apparently this jutsu happens independent of his will. Gaara now traps him in a sand coffin of some sort. Gaara now lifts the guy into the air, SAND BURIAL!

Umm, I think it's raining blood. Gaara used an umbrella to block the blood.

The other 2 offer their scroll to be spared, THEY ARE NOT SPARED! HOLY CRAP.

GAARA WANTS MORE BLOOD! HE KNOWS KIBA AND CREW ARE THERE! The other 2 get him to stop though, they are his brother and sister apparently. Wow.

Now Kiba and crew make it to the tower. Gaara and crew are there too!

Meanwhile, the proctor and crew are waiting... they are watching a tape of Gaara and crew inside the tower. It only took them 97 minutes, breaking the old record by 4 hours. Also, not one scratch on him. They don't believe it.

Overall: Wow... the opening stuff with Naruto and crew was pointless, but that Gaara stuff... god damn... that guy... intense.


BLEACH EPISODE 34: TRAGEDY OF DAWN

Looks like we are back to the soul society. I was actually kind of hoping for another filler just to get the 2nd one out of the way.

Ichigo and Renji fall over. Ichigo is in bad shape. Renji is in worse shape. But hey, they have a medic with them right! More guys are coming, so they run the hell away.

Now some reapers show up. They are gonna take care of Renji instead of look for the guy who fought him.

The squad 4 guy says he can heal him with his energy he doesn't need medical supplies. The guy says that Ichigo really should be dead, he's amazing. He'll need one night to heal him.

The captain of the squad 6 wants Renji put in prison, since he went off to fight on his own. What a bastard. Now Ichimaru shows up. He says he will call squad 4 so they won't get in trouble. He seems to mock the squad 6 captain as well.

We see another captain meeting. He says they need to use their higher ranks for this fight. So the lieutenants and captains are all going into battle it seems. This means it's all out war. So, out of the 26 captains/lieutenants, 1 is defeated. "oh man".

Ichigo is still hurt, but he wants to go find everyone. He looks like crap, and walks away. Then Ganju punches him, lawl. Ichigo is passed out again.

The 4th squad guy found what looked like a hollow mask on Ichigo, he wonders if it helped take some of the blows.

It's officially declared "war time". Captains and lieutenants can carry their swords around all the time now and use deadly force.

We find out a little more about Momo and Captain Eisen. I'm not sure what their squad is. Momo wakes up late the next morning and runs to some meeting that is taking place. Momo sees someone with a blood stained sword as she makes it though.

EISEN IS DEAD. He was murdered or something.

Overall: Whoa, intense and interesting ending. The episode was a bit uneventful overall, but had its moments.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 34

I can see why the dub cut so many episodes out of this saga, there is an awful lot of fluff, although OP was better than last time. Meanwhile, Naruto was just flat out intense. Gaara is amazing. Damn, I wonder who faces off with him later?

Naruto: 21

One Piece: 13


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: This is a tricky one as I considered all 3 a bit uneventful or pointless at times. Naruto barely takes the win, I think One Piece just barely takes 2nd, as it had a few really cool moments, while Bleach only had the end. More plot progression in OP too as well, so that feels about right. Bleach hits a cold streak and it is now down by 3 to Naruto.

Naruto- 38

Bleach- 35

One Piece- 29

EPISODE 35[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 35: UNTOLD PAST: FEMALE WARRIOR BELLEMERE!

Flashback episode I bet, woooo.

Luffy is out on his walk... 3 of the "elite" mermen block his path... Luffy walks right by them, haha. Hahaha, the octopus guy asks what he's doing, Luffy says he is taking a walk, so the Octopus wishes him a pleasant one. I love that Octopus >_>.

Nami as a child liked to steal things I guess, she is also a really good mapmaker.

Nami's dream is to sail around the world and make a world map. Their mom's name is Bellemere, she seems pretty cool.

They are really poor, and eventually Nami leaves. It's kind of unclear whether she leaves because she's selfish and hates being poor, or if it's because she wants Bellemere to live better.

Ahh, it's the latter. Nami runs off to Gen's place. Gen talks about Bellemere's past now, she was a marine. She was on the verge of dying when she found Nojiko and Nami, so she took them in, back to Cocoyashi village. So Nami ran back to Bellemere's.

This is when Arlong and crew came to town. Belle's house was outside of town, and they noticed it last second, they are heading to the house, and Nami and Nojiko are headed there too...

Overall: Mmmm, decent flashback. It's not that great so far, the best moment of the episode was actually the scene with Luffy >_>. I'll say this was "average" on a whole.




NARUTO EPISODE 35: THE SCROLL'S SECRET: NO PEEKING ALLOWED

They only have 24 hours left... wait, I thought they had both scrolls? I guess the sound guys left them the wrong scroll.

Ohhhh yeah, Orochimaru burnt one of their scrolls, forgot about that. So, they need a heaven scroll.

Naruto has a plan. He has scrolls for other stuff, he wants to look at the earth scroll, and use that to put together some fake scrolls so they can pass >____>.

Meanwhile, it looks like another team has the same idea, and they open up their scroll. And now Naruto is opening theirs....

WHAT. The other team opened their scroll and SCREAMED! THEY ARE PASSED OUT! wut.

NARUTO DON'T OPEN IT YOU IDIOT! He starts to lift it, he's shaking... SOMEONE STOPS HIM! It's the glasses guY! He says they are protected by a hypnosis jutsu. He says he already has both scrolls. Sasuke wants to fight for the heaven scroll. Kabuto says he is willing to show them the path. He says everyone is going to be at the tower today on the last day of the exam.

Sasuke now sees why Kabuto brought them along with them, because he is frightened. Kabuto says he is right, haha. Kabuto is pretty awesome.

On their way to the tower they come across lots of traps and stuff, phew, this is intense, and they haven't even gotten to a fight yet!

Kabuto says they've been tricked, they have been walking around in circles. Kabuto says they are probably waiting to strike once they are worn down. Now dozens of Ninja start appearing! They are surrounded by them!

Overall: I thought this episode was gonna really suck, since I thought it would be about Naruto wanting to peak, but it ended up being pretty cool. Kabuto is an awesome character, and I'm glad to see him getting face time.


BLEACH EPISODE 35: ASSASSINATION OF AIZEN! THE DARKNESS WHICH APPROACHES

So thats 2/26 of the captains/lieutenants taken down! "Aww yeah".

Ichimaru shows up, unfazed by the murder. Momo remembers a warning about Ichimaru... obviously she suspects him. She draws her sword and runs in to attack. Ichimaru is still smiling. The attack is blocked by another guy. The lieutenant of squad 3.

Whoa, she uses the real power of her sword, and theres an explosion. Ichimaru is still just walking away lol >_>. Momo attacks again, another explosion. The liuetenant says Momo must now be eliminated. She's ready, ATTACK. It's blocked by one of the captains. Toshiro. He says they are both under arrest.

Erm, so is that 4/26 out of the way? >_>.

Ichimaru's smile is even bigger as Momo is taken away.

Toshiro accuses Ichimaru of trying to kill Momo... he says if he does anything to her, he will kill him. Oh geez, lots of inner-drama.

Meanwhile. Ichigo is up, and appears to be all healed. They both appear to really appreciate his work. Thats probably not what the squad 4 dude is used to.

CHAD SIGHTING, He wakes up from slumber. He was just remembering when he met Ichigo. Geez, have you done anything yet except fluke into taking out a few scrubs? Anyway, there appear to be tons of people outside of where he is sleeping. He gets his huge arm ready. The door is open...

Ichigo and crew emerge at the spot where they battled. Theres still no guards.

Chad owns all the guys who attacked him. All scrubs. He finds out where the repentance cell is.

Ichigo and crew are at the stairs that lead to the cell. It still looks like they have a long way to go though.

One of the captains/lieutenants sees one of the intruders. I think it's Chad. Haha, this captain is pretty chill.

Ichigo makes it to the end of the stairs. They are in some huge area, still no security. It suddenly gets dark, wtf. Someone powerful is near.

Overall: Some interesting stuff going on with the inner drama, also glad to see Chad get some spotlight, but this episode still felt a bit like set-up for the future. But pretty good overall.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 35

One Piece was decent, it was a flashback that I'd describe as "ok" so far, meanwhile, the forest of death is staying pretty intense, which I didn't quite expect. Naruto takes another one.

Naruto: 22

One Piece: 13


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Naruto takes 1st pretty easily since Bleach and One Piece were both in the average territory. I'll give Bleach a bit of an edge over One-Piece, since OP was the boring half of the Nami flashback, and Bleach had some pretty interesting stuff at least.

Naruto- 40

Bleach- 36

One Piece- 29

EPISODE 36[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 36: SURVIVE! BELLEMERE AND NAMI'S BOND!

Arlong has made it to Bellemere's house!!

Arlong enters the house... no one is there! Bellemere realized something was going on! OH SNAP! SHE KICKS ARLONG! GUN IN HIS MOUTH!

All the mermen laugh... ARLONG BITES THE GUN! OH DAMN, they are crushing her arm, oh god.

Arlong is tricked into thinking Bellemere lives alone.

Meanwhile, Nami and Nojiko are told by someone that they have to leave the village so Bellemere can live in the village...

WHAT, Now Bellemere says that the money she paid was for her daughters not for herself. No! She is going to sacrifice herself it seems! They all hug and cry. Bellemere tells them to live on, and fulfill their dreams.

Damn... Arlong tells Nojiko and Nami that she loves them, and then she gets shot. Wow. How sad. The pirates now discover Nami's map making ability, and take her with them.

Nami comes back to town the next day and says she is joining Arlong's crew, she also shows the money she got from him. Gen now tells her never to set foot in the village again.

At night, at Bellemere's grave, Nami tells Nojiko the deal she made with Arlong.

And the flashback ends... pretty intense.

Luffy sees Gen leading a bunch of Marines to Nami now... THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE NAMI'S TREASURE THAT SHE HAS STOLEN! It's becoming government property, these are the dirty marines BTW.

Overall: Man, that was one hell of a flashback, super intense, especially Bellemere dying, very good episode.




NARUTO EPISODE 36: CLONE VS. CLONE: MINE ARE BETTER THAN YOURS!

Hmmm, I'm not totally sure I like that they still need another scroll, the sound village stuff was a fitting way to end this section of the exam, but ahh well, I'll go with it.

Naruto attacks a clone, his punch goes right through it! It's made of tar or something? Another clone seems to emerge from the one Naruto destroyed.

Sasuke gets a kunai thrown at him, and he can't move! I guess it's the curse mark, damn that thing is going to get annoying.

Sasuke says it is gen jutsu and not to bother attacking the clones. Kabuto says they need to hold off their attacks until they can judge where they are attacking from in the woods.

Naruto decides they need to get rid of the clones, SHADOW CLONE JUTSU! Woooo!

They attack the hell out of the clones! YEAH BABY! But they keep regenerating, this is pointless >_>. Now Kabuto, Sasuke and Sakura join the fight.... it is now daylight.

Looks like that didn't work >_>. They are tired as balls. Now the three real ninja show up. NARUTO SMILES! THEY ARE ACTUALLY BEHIND THEM! THEY WERE ALL SHADOW CLONES/REPLACEMENT JUTSUS! Sasuke and crew were all hiding the whole time! Naruto now falls down, he's tired, Sasuke tells him to take a break... NARUTO PUNCHES THEM, lol, he's awesome. Sasuke can't believe he is this good. Neither can Kabuto.

The grass ninjas now use another clone type thing. Sasuke tells Naruto not to waste his energy attacking... NARUTO DOESN'T CARE! Sasuke is frozen again thanks to the curse... this is dumb >_>.

Sasuke now uses Sharingan with the last of his strength... He sees the truth, they are hiding with earth style. Kabuto gets hit, his eyes turn red! BUT NOW NARUTO LANDS A KICK AND TAKES THEM ALL DOWN! They find a heaven scroll!

They make it to the tower, and part ways with Kabuto, Kabuto is pretty awesome.

WHAT, WHAT, WHAT, WHAT, WHAT! KABUTO IS A SPY FOR OROCHIMARU! HE WAS WATCHING THEM! HOLY CRAP!

Overall: Wow, I did think it was a little coincidental that Kabuto ran into them, this explains everything, what an awesome twist ending. Also, that was a real funm fight that showed off how awesome Naruto is getting. Sasuke's curse thing will probably annoy me to no end though.


BLEACH EPISODE 36: KENPACHI ZARAKI APPROACHES!

The lieutenant with giant boobs found a letter addressed to Momo from Aizen. She hands it over to her.

It's a record of the truths he has uncovered. We don't get to see what it says though.

The squad 11 guy seems to be watching Ichigo. Ichigo is starting to geel weird. Something is messing with him somehow. The squad 4 guy now falls over. He has no strength left. Ichigo turns around and faces him!

Huh? Now Ichigo feels like he was stabbed. But it's actually his intent to kill. The guy is behind him. Kenpachi tells Ichigo he is ready to fight to the death.

Ichigo remembers the cat saying not to fight captains. But Ichigo knows he can't run from this.

Erm, and now the lieutenant is here >_>. The little pink-haired girl. She's very nice >_>.

Ganju runs off with the squad 4 guy at Ichigo's orders.

Ichigo unleashes his sword, he's ready to go! Kenpachi says Ichigo isn't near his level, but he is impressed. He is going to give Ichigo the first strike for free! Ichigo says "screw that". But finally he attacks, RAWWWR!

The squad 4 guy says they have to help Ichigo. Ichigo can't beat him. He's invincible. Ganju says thats exactly why they have to go on and save Rukia.

Ganju says Ichigo better not die...

Ichigo has cut Kenny. Wait, huh, he doesn't even have a scratch. Ichigp's hand is bleeding though, wtf.

Kenpachi says this is a joke. He thinks this was a waste of time after all. Ichigo attacks again...

Overall: Geeez, another episode that mostly felt like set-up. Especially the hints with no real revelations in Momo's letter, and the confrontation with Kenpachi. Things look like they are finally going to heat up next episode though. I have no idea how Ichigo is going to get out of this one.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 36

I imagine I'll get ripped for this, but screw it. One Piece was emotional and cool, but it was kind of carried by one moment, the shooting. While I enjoyed it, the episode revolved around that moment. Naruto meanwhile was pretty awesome from start to finish. I was pretty unsure who I was going to give the edge to, because both shows were very good, but the Kabuto twist at the end put things over the top for me, Naruto takes it.

Naruto: 23

One Piece: 13


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Bleach has really hit a bit of a rut. Early this season, almost every episode was totally awesome. Lately it's just been in the middle though. One Piece and Naruto both delivered great episodes here. The Bellemere flashback was way better this episode, and Naruto had a great fight, plus an awesome plot twist. Naruto > OP > Bleach. Naruto's lead is getting big! It's starting to be where there isn't a close fight for 1st or 2nd.

Naruto- 42

Bleach- 36

EPISODE 37[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 37: LUFFY RISES! RESULT OF THE BROKEN PROMISE!

Oh god I'm pumped for angry Luffy.

We get a flashback of the deal Arlong and Nami made about Cocoyashi village.

The marines are also here to confiscate Nami's treasure, obviously the work of Arlong.

Nami is beating the crap out of the marines with her uhh stick.

Gen now reveals he has always known about what she is doing, and so does the whole town. The marine now yells at his men, saying it should be easy to find 100 million beli, Nami now realizes she was betrayed by Arlong. Yesssss, this will set up the fight so well! NAMI IS RAGED! And now they have found the treasure! ****!

Nami tries running at the marines, the marine captain shoots, and hits Nojiko! WHERE THE HECK IS LUFFY.

Oh, he's there... thinking about how awesome Gen's pinwheel is... XD.

Nami is now running for Arlong's place. She makes it back. She yells at Arlong, but Arlong says he never broke his promise. Damn. Nami cries. She can't run away either or he will kill everyone in Cocoyashi.

The village is now ready to fight! Nami makes it back in time. She says she can get the money again... don't fight. Gen hugs her, he says it's OK... she cries. She tells them they are all going to die... Gen says that they know this. They now march off to battle. WHERE THE HELL IS LUFFY?

OH ****! HOLY ****ING ****!!! NAMI IS RAGED, SHE STARTS STABBING HER TATTOO! Luffy now stops her. Nami tells Luffy to go away. Now she cries, and asks for Luffy's help. Luffy puts his hat on Nami, DAMN RIGHT! THE CREW IS ASSEMBLED!!! LUFFY SAYS IT IS TIME TO FIGHT! YESYESYES.

Yosaku and Johnny are here all beaten up, they lost to Arlong. They tell the villagers to wait for Luffy and crew.

OMG BADASS SCENE OF LUFFY AND CREW WALKING TOGETHER. SO BADASS. SOOOO BADASS.

Yosaku: Remember the faces of those 4, they have come to change the future.

Overall: You guys have awful taste, this episode was way better than the flashback. It had just as much emotion, if not more so, plus it had some badass moments, and some awesome build up to the upcoming fight.




NARUTO EPISODE 37: SURVIVING THE CUT: THE ROOKIE NINE TOGETHER AGAIN!

Man, how the hell did team Ino pass? Srsly.

They throw the scrolls, and it summons... Iruka? WHO CARES lol. He says they pass. Sasuke now asks what would have happened if they opened the scrolls. Iruka says anyone who opened it got knocked out.

Iruka seems troubled about the 3rd part of the exam.

The Hokage and some other ninja are talking about Orochimaru, the Hokage knows that they were here for Sasuke.

21 ninja have passed this part of the exam, which means there will be preliminaries before the next exam?

7 teams passed then. 5 of them are from the leaf village then, haha. So much for balancing power, although I guess Kabuto isn't really aligned with leaf village.

The sound village guys are here, and Gaara's team is here too.

The Hokage explains a bunch of stuff about the exam.

He now says the 3rd exam is a fight for life....

The 3rd proctor now arrives. He says theres something he wants them all to do before the exam...

Overall: What a lame cliffhanger >_>. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the upcoming stuff, but this was a pretty slow episode, "time wasting" if you will.


BLEACH EPISODE 37: REASON OF THE FIST

Why does the dub still use the word "Ryoka". Why not just use intruder?

Chad comes across the 3rd seat of squad 8. The guy is powering up. CHAD PUNCHES HIM, goodbye! Nice.

Now he comes across... a captain! Squad 8 captain! He must be one of the weaker captains with how crappy seat 3 was.

The captain tells Chad to lighten up, life is too short. Lol afterlife. He offers Chad a friendly drink. Chad says minors can't drink >_>. What a noob! The law is for pansies.

Chad strikes at the captain. He reflects the spirit energy somehow, and is unaffected.

Chad attacks again, another miss. Chad is beginning to realize he is outclassed.

Chad runs in again. STRIKE! Explosion! The captain is behind him! He nails him with some shot, and Chad rolls for like 30 seconds >_>. He is offering Chad a chance to retreat, but Chad refuses. He explains his motivation.

The guy pulls out his swords. He says he will have to kill Chad. Oh geez. Chad runs in. Chad swears he will defeat him somehow!

Chad remembers when Ichigo kicked some guys asses who were attacking him, since Chad never fights back. Chad says he made a vow he would never use his fists for his own sake. Some gang overheard him talking about a medallion he always wears. He says it's very expensive. It's from his grandpa.

Chad used to be kind of a bully. He was a hopeless case. Then something happened that changed that... In the flashback, Chad gets attacked by the gang again. They tied him up. They take Chad's coin.

Chad remembers when his grandpa took a beating for him after he did something to get in trouble. And thats why he changed.

Ichigo shows up and takes out their boss. He takes the cell phone, calls the ambulance, he calls one ambulance for each gang member and beats them up. Chad and Ichigo swore to fight for each other from now on, so it's OK if Chad fights now.

Chad runs in... sweet music playing. CMON CHAD!!! HE PUNCHES! EXPLOSION! WHAT. The captain dodged it, he cuts chad.

Overall: Pretty good episode. The fighting wasn't great, but I thought the captain was a cool character. Also, I actually enjoyed the flashbacks a pretty good amount.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 37

Well, easy enough decision here, a shame for One Piece that it wasted so much firepower on a pretty weak Naruto episode. OP takes it.

Naruto: 23

One Piece: 14


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Bleach recovers from its recent mini-rut to deliver a very solid episode. Naruto takes last place thanks to an uneventful episode. And One Piece delivered probably the best episode so far, even among the Grand Line stuff I've seen probably, and takes an easy win. The next stretch is easily the best part of the East Blue saga, and this is One Piece's chance to start catching up to the pack.

EPISODE 38[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 38: LUFFY IN BIG TROUBLE! FISHMEN VS. THE LUFFY PIRATES!

Luffy busted down Arlong's wall...

Luffy: Which one's Arlong?

Luffy PUNCHES ARLONG IN THE FACE! Haha, nice. He isn't screwing around this time.

A bunch of mermen now attack Luffy... Sanji owns them.

Now all 4 are standing side by side. Arlong and the Mermen aren't worried at all though, they now call some secret weapon... Mohmoo.

IT'S THE MONSTER THEY'VE BEEN RIDING! hahahaha.

XD, Mohmoo is crying, he is scared of Luffy and Sanji.

Mohmoo now runs away crying LOL. Arlong now says he won't stop Mohmoo, which sets Mohmoo into a rage? He now attacks... uhh what?

Luffy is now attacking him, Mohmoo is crying again hahaha.

GOMU GOMU... KAZAGURUMA! It's a move that he got from the pinwheel on Genm's head lol. Mohmoo gets thrown way back into the sea.

It looks like just about every merman is down after that attack. The village is stunned. Oh, the three elite mermen are still up. Looks like that is the next fight. They actually have good logic for why Arlong isn't fighting, he would wreck the part if he fought out of rage.

After his last move Luffy is stuck in the ground >_>. The octopus hits im with tar, and now he can't see. Now the Octopus is going to hit him with a piece of a wall. HE SLAMS IT DOWN ON LUFFY! Luffy should be squashed but uhh, SANJI WITH THE SAVE! He kicks through the wall.

Now Sanji is facing off with on of the mermen. Usopp still can't free Luffy from the ground >_>.

Also, Zoro is facing off with octopus guy.

Meanwhile, Luffy is going to fight one of the Mermen... while stuck in the ground it looks like >_>. WAIT NEVERMIND, USOPP WILL FIGHT HIM! HE DOES A DIRE SHOT! Now he runs away again lol >_>.

Arlong now says he wants a game. He picks up Luffy by lifting up the ground... AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE SEA! Also, Luffy tried punching him in the mouth, but Arlong just bit his fist, ouch. Zoro says they can't save Luffy, because Mermen have the edge underwater. They have to defeat the elite mermen quickly so they can save Luffy. Geeeez, this "side" fight just got interesting.

Overall: Actually, pretty clever. They needed to do the mandatory "mini-boss" fights, and also get Zoro, Sanji and Usopp some fihting time, I think that was a pretty good way to do it, and I'm actually interested in these fights now. Good ep.



NARUTO EPISODE 38: NARROWING THE FIELD: SUDDEN DEATH ELIMINATION!

The proctor says there will be a preliminary exam before the real one.

The logic is that some "important guests" will be here to watch the end of the exam, so only the best should be at that point. He also says people should say if they aren't fit to fight anymore.

ONE ON ONE COMBAT will be the preliminaries, YESSSS.

Sakura wants Sasuke to drop out.

One of the proctors wants to kick Sasuke out, Kakashi doesn't want him kicked out, obviously. SOMEONE NOW RAISES THEIR HAND!

KABUTO?! WHAAAT. Must have something to do with Orochimaru. The Hokage wonders whats up, apparently he has done it before. One of Kabuto's team asks whats up with him, Kabuto says he will leave it to him.

Kabuto doesn't want to fight because his "old me" might come out, which could blow his cover. Interesting. We saw a glimpse of this during the fight in the forest.

Sasuke explains he can only find out if he is ready for his revenge mission through this exam, to convince Sakura not to rat him out.

The Hokage decides to keep Sasuke in.

Oh, I just realized that Kabuto leaving coincidentally makes it so there are an even number for these fights >____>.

You fight until you are unable to fight, die, or give up.

TIME FOR THE MATCH UPS! excitiiiiing!

Oh, we only get one match up at a time. In a moment, the first two will appear. WHO IS IT WHO IS IT!!!

Sasuke vs. Yoroi... one of the guys in Kabuto's squad. Man, this is a weak opening match up >_>.

Sasuke is in lots of pain still. Kakashi comes in... he says not to use the Sharingan, because of the mark. Sasuke can't fight using chakra or else the curse mark becomes stronger.

FIGHT! Yoroi throws some kunai early on, Sasuke dodges, crap, he's in pain again, this is going to get annoying <_<. Yoroi is behind him, but Sasuke trips him up and gets him in an arm bar. Yoroi now uses something to get out. He sapped all of Sasuke's strength somehow. Now he does the move on Sasuke's head, Sasuke is losing strength fast.

Overall: Augh, I really hate that stupid curse mark. Seriously, I'm excited as hell for the matches, but this episode wasn't that great, and I don't think I'll enjoy the sub plot for this fight.


BLEACH EPISODE 38: DESPERATION! THE BROKEN ZANGETSU

Ichigo is uhh, running from Kenpachi? That sucks. Kenpachi catches up, Ichigo parries, then continues running. He says he isn't scared of him, and now stops. KENPACHI BUSTS THROUGH A WALL! ATTACK! DODGE! ICHIGO JUMPS, blocked.

Another attack, blocked, blocked. Ichigo blocks an attack. More parries.

Kenpachi is pretty clearly toying with Ichigo. Ichigo slices Kenpachi again, but Kenpachi is unaffected. Ichigo runs away again.

Ichigo realizes he needs to stop being afraid. He can cut him! HE CAN DO IT! HE CAN WIN! YES ICHIGO!

Ichigo now feels Chad's spiritual pressure disappear.

The squad 8 captain now gets a message. It says that captain Aizen is dead.

The liuetenant says that Chad still isn't dead. She offers to finish him off. The captain says thats fine. He is gonna call in a squad to take him to prison.

Ichigo realizes he has to win this fight, so he can help his friends. He doesn't want all his friends to die. HE CAN"T BE AFRAID! YEAH YEAH YEAH!

Kenpachi is glad Ichigo is done running, ICHIGO ATTACKS! BLOCKED, SLASH! HE CUTS KENPACHI! YES YES! Ichigo knows he can win! Kenpachi is amused at this.

KENNY ATTACKS, ICHIGO ATTACKS, CLASH!

ANOTHER CLASH! WHAT! KENNY GRABS ICHIGO'S BLADE WITH HIS BARE HANDS TO PULL HIM IN, HE STRIKES, ICHIGO DODGES!

KENNY IS GONE, FROM ABOVE, ICHIGO BLOCKS!

Kenny says he's glad Ichigo is taking advantage of th ebells in his hair, and the eyepatch he wears. He only does it to make things harder so he gets mor enjoyment out of battle. Hot damn >_>.

Kenny has been holding back the entire time too though. He hasn't been swinging with his full strength. KENNY CUTS THROUGH ICHIGO'S SWORD, IT'S BROKEN! Ichigo has been cut. Damn. Ichigo is down. The floor is filled with blood.

Ichigo now sees... his sword's human-form thing.

Overall: Some intense fighting here. Kenpachi is so ridiculously strong, it's not cool at all >_>. But this was fun.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 38

Both episodes were mostly set up for some big fights coming up. I am way more excited about the Naruto fights, since I love tournaments, but in terms of actual episode quality, OP was clearly better.

Naruto: 23

One Piece: 15


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Bleach had some great fighting, but they never, at this point anyway, had me believing Ichigo could win, which hurt the fight just a bit. OP had a lot of fun stuff going on, especially the set up for future fights. Naruto was OK, but had the annoying curse mark stuff. OP > Bleach > Naruto. The 2 shows are coming back!

Naruto- 42

Bleach- 38

One Piece- 34

EPISODE 39[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 39: LUFFY SUBMERGED: ZORO VS. HATCHAN THE OCTOPUS!

Zoro attacks Hatchan... and cuts off some of his hair!

Zoro attacks again... Hatchan gets cut but isn't dead.

Meanwhile, Sanji is landing a few blows but they seem to be blocked.

On the side , Gen decides he has to go save Luffy. Nojiko will go too.

Zoro is now starting to stumble around, he is still hurt from Mihawk, crap. Now the octopus is going to show his skills, SIX SWORDS! But Zoro falls t o the ground now.

And, while Sanji is distracted, HE GETS PUNCHED, FLIES THROUGH A WALL! Ouch.

ZORO IS NOW STANDING! Somehow!

Meanwhile, Usopp is running >_>. The Merman is impressed with his speed and stamina >_>. Usopp claims he is only running to help them out by getting rid of a guy >_>.

Now Usopp thinks he loses the merman, but he gets behind him! Usopp starts running away!

Gen and Nojiko are underwater trying to get Luffy out, but are having difficulty because of the cement his feet are stuck in.

Sanji now gets up. He basically isn't impressed with the punch.

Zoro is now up to 3 swords. He takes Johnny and Yosaku's swords. Zoro knows he doesn't have much longer before he passes out again.

WHOA! Zoro starts dodging the 6 swords with his 3, in SLOW MOTION! TOUROU NAGASH! HATCHAN IS HIT! BAM! Hatchan is up. Zoro is extremely weak, but he is going to fight on. Hatchan now hits Zoro into the air, as he is falling, he starts swinging his swords above him, Zoro will get cut up as soon as he touches them. ZORO'S HEAD GETS HIT! Wait, NO! Zoro is up! He actually cutup hatchan! NICE!

Zoro is about to fall over again... damn. Zoro refuses to lose to his wound though, Hawk is his motivation. TORNADO MOVE BY ZORO! HATCHANB IS THROWN INTO THE AIR!!! HIS SWORDS ARE ALL CUT UP! HE FALLS TO THE GROUND! WOOO ZORO!

Now the other Merman is behind the other Merman, but Sanji kicks him away!

Sanji now jumps underwater since Zoro can't. HE IS GOING TO FIGHT HIM UNDERWATER! ZORO THINKS THATS A BAD IDEA! Sanji sees what Nojiko and Gen are doing, they stretched out his head to above water, and are pumping his stomach from underwater, nice. As Sanji sees this, he takes a punch to the back!

Overall: Not a bad fighting episode, it wasn't that exhilirating, but it was decent enough.




NARUTO EPISODE 39: BUSHY BROW'S JEALOUSY -- LIONS BARRAGE UNLEASHED!

This fight is all about the subplot. I'm kind of expecting it to annoy me, but we will give it a chance.

This guys special move can steal Sasuke's chakra. Sasuke manages to kick him off though. Yoroi rushes in again, Sasuke barely gets away.

Naruto yells at Sasuke! Sasuke now knows what to do apparently, Yoroi rushes in, dodging... Sasuke smiles! HE DISAPPEARS! HE WAS ON THE GROUND! HE KICKS YOROI UPWARDS! THAT'S ROCK LEES MOVES? NOW HE'S BEHIND YOROI... he is gonna use a sweet move, CURSE MARK! God damn it. I'm actually not that annoyed for some reason.

Sasuke's face is turning into flames. BUT HE FIGHTS IT OFF!!! Epic Music! Sasuke with a mid-air kick, NOW A MID AIR PUNCH! SENDS YOROI TO THE GROUND! NOW A LION'S BARRAGE!!!!HE SENDS YOROI TO THE GROUND! And Sasuke is down too...

Sasuke shakily gets up, Yoroi is out cold! The match is declared over! Sasuke wins! Yesssss. That was actually a decent fight, I liked it.

Kakashi says Sasuke must have copied Rock's techniques with his sharingan, haha awesome. So, I guess that Rock Lee fight ended up important after all, thats pretty awesome too.

Guy says that Sasuke reminds him of Kakashi young, ha. The girl in Rock's squad who would win over the best guy in her squad vs. Sasuke. The 2nd proctor is amazed that he could control the curse mark.

Kakashi now takes Sasuke away to treat his curse mark, seal it or whatever. Thank god, I hope thats mostly the end of that subplot. It kind of made for a cool twist on that fight though, I must admit.

NEXT FIGHT!!! Exciting!!!

Shino vs. Zaku! It's that sunglasses/bug guy vs. a sound village guy.

Zaku had his arms broken earlier by Sasuke. His arms are all wrapped together.

WHAT, Orochimaru disappears, is he going to take control of Zaku. Shino tells him to forfeit... Zaku attacks... SHINO BLOCKS! His other hang has the sound wave thing, he blows Shino away! Shino is down!

Meanwhile, Kakashi puts a seal on Sasuke, but it is only as strong as Sasuke's will. Oh, Orochimaru arrives, he talks to Kakashi! He knows Kakashi somehow!

Overall: I liked this episode. The Sasuke vs. Yoroi was actually pretty awesome, it was pretty clever, I totally forgot that the Sharingan can copy moves too. Shino vs. Zaku is off to an OK start. Shino is pretty badass, ending didn't interest me that much, but yeah, good ep.


BLEACH EPISODE 39: THE MAN OF IMMORTALITY

Ichigo's sword asks him if he wants to fight and win, or just live. Ichigo says he wants to win. The sword says he will take Ichigo there. Ichigo wakes up in some weird dimension or something.

Zangetsu gives Ichigo some crappy sword. He won't let Ichigo use it. Hollow Ichigo takes the good sword. Now is the test to see if Ichigo is worthy. I guess he has to fight his hollow self.

Hollow attacks, Ichigo barely blocks. This guy is strong. Ichigo also realizes how great Zangetsu is. The hollow does a ranged attack. He spins the sword using the cloth, and then throws it. Ichigo realizes he should have been fighting like this.

The hollow says Ichigo still hasn't even tried to master Zangetsu. Ichigo hasn't been drawing out his sword's full power. Ichigo realizes his sword is alive.

The hollow continues to attack, Ichigo realizes he is no better than Kenpachi. He is going to change that. The hollow attacks. He asks Zangetsu to show him everything. He needs to know how to borrow his strength. Please let me fight with you one more time! ICHIGO NOW HAS ZANGETSU!

Hollow Ichigo tells Zangetsu to train him well. It will eventually be his power. Hm?

Zangetsu says Ichigo needs to trust him. He will never fight alone.

ICHIGO IS STANDING, POWER UP! HELL YEAH! The bleeding has stopped! FUCK THIS CLOWN UP ICHIGO! HE ATTACKS! JUST LIKE THAT HE CUTS KENNY! ATTACK, BARELY BLOCKED. ANOTHER CUT! YEAH YEAH YEAH!

KENNY ATTACKS!, ICHIGO CUTS HIS FACE! PARRY! PARRY! ICHIGO IS PWNING!

MORE PARRIES! ICHIGO IS DODGING EASY! WHAT, KENNY POWERING UP? ATTACK, BLOCKED. No matter how much Ichigo cuts him, Kenny still seems fine.

Kenny attacks again, parried, MORE CUTS. Blood everywhere. Kenny keeps laughing.

Kenny says Ichigo might be better than him. Kenny says he can fight with no restraints against Ichigo. He now powers up it seems. And he took off his eyepatch. The eyepatch was containing some of his energy?

Zangetsu shows up behind Ichigo. He asks if Ichigo can hear tthe cries of Kenny's sword. They don't trust each other, so their strength is diminished. Kenpachi only believes in himself. Ichigo says he trusts Zangetsu completely. ICHIGO POWERS UP MORE!!!!

Ichigo says he can never lose to Kenpachi because he works with his sword. Kenny says this is nonsense. He says that his sword is just a weapon.

ICHIGO WILL FINISH THIS IN ONE BLOW! THEY RUN AT EACH OTHER, STRIKE! EXPLOSION!

WHAT. ICHIGO LOST? WTFWTF.

Overall: Seriously, WTF at that ending, thats not how it's supposed to happen >_>. This was a cool episode because I liked learning more about Ichigo's sword, he's a cool ass dude. Ichigo powering up was sweet, and the ending was badass, although Ichigo losing was sorta wtf. Very good ep.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 39

I usually like Naruto's fight scenes a bit more than One Piece's, and that was the case here for sure. One Piece had the best individual moment, with Zoro's cool move inbetween the six swords, but as a whole, I thought the Sasuke vs. Yoroi fight was more exciting. Slight edge to Naruto.

Naruto: 24

One Piece: 15


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: After gaining some momentum, OP takes last place after it pretty clearly had the weakest episode. Naruto had a decent fight, but Bleach was the best, with a solid episode from start to finish. OP is guaranteed at least one point over the next 4 episodes though, as it beat Naruto for the rest of the Arlong arc.

Naruto- 43

Bleach- 40

One Piece- 34

EPISODE 40[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 40: PROUD WARRIORS! SANJI AND USOPP'S FIERCE BATTLES!

This episode has potential, I'm interested in how an underwater fight goes, and Usopp's fight could be awesome >_>.

The merman goes to hit Gen... SANJI GRABS HIS HAIR! He barely stops him. The merman now grabs Sanji with his hair and pulls him. Sanji tried kicking him, but his kick loses power underwater. The merman is OWNING Sanji, and hits him with several kicks. Damn. Sanji is down... BUT HE'S UP! He is frantically swimming toward the surface (man, Gen has been down there a long ass time BTW).

But the merman cuts him off! CRAP! Sanji can barely hold is breath anymore. He now grabs sanji and is going to piledrive him to the ground, the pressure change will make his body explode... Sanji is getting angry. The merman takes him to the bottom, but Sanji is still alive! So he is going to do it one more time, he takes him to the top... OH NICE! Sanji uses his experience as a chef to bite the merman's gill, he couldn't breath, so he managed to get out of the water! Nice!

The merman is out of the water... KICK TO THE NECK! KICK TO THE SHOULDER! SUPER QUICK KICKS! HE GETS BEHIND HIM, KICK TO THE HEAD! He flies backwards through the arlong park building!

Arlong is now ANGRY.

Gen goes up for air, Nojiko is gonna go down this time.

Meanwhile, Usopp is on the ground, beaten. He is bleeding everywhere. The merman is satisfied, and walks away... but Usopp is still moving.

USOPP LAUGHS! He used ketchup to fake the injury.

Usopp is thinking about a lie for the battle he just ran from, but now he remembers the sacrifices everyone else has made during these battles. He starts to cry.

HE CALLS OUT THE MERMAN! SLINGSHOT HITS CHU IN THE HEAD... BUT HE PUNCHES USOPP IN THE FACE! Damn, he just got OWNED. YES! Usopp surprises Chu with a hammer. Then he acts like he will use a rubber band, but runs away. He hits Chu with an exploding liquor bottle or something.

Chu now uses a water cannon on the area where Usopp is, but it doesn't hit Usopp! But he reveals his position, and starts getting shot at. He now lifts up the tree Usopp was hiding behind... USOPP WAS READY! WINE IS FLAMMABLE! HE LIGHTS CHU ON FIRE! Chu is running for the pond.... USOPP HAMMER!!! YESSS! CHU IS DOWN!

USOPP HAMMER gets used like 15 times now while Chu is down! YES YES YES YES!!! USOPP WINS! USOPP WINS!

Meanwhile, Arlong and Sanji are down, Arlong has been owning them I guess. Arlong throws water at them, and it feels like a shotgun.

NAMI IS HERE! "I'm here to kill you".

Overall: Great fighting episode from start to finish, Sanji's fight was cool, and I really loved seeing Usopp pull through too. Great episode.




NARUTO EPISODE 40: KAKASHI AND OROCHIMARU: FACE-TO-FACE!

Shino is up and fine after the attack from Zaku. Bugs are now coming out of Shino >_>.

A BUG ARMY IS COMING FOR ZAKU! Shino says he only has one good arm, he has 2 enemies to fight with one arm.

We now get a lame flashback with Zaku. Why are we sudden;y getting backstory on this guy? He looks like he is about to lose, and he doesn't seem that important, I'm not really that interested. It basically shows how Orochimaru recruited him. He looks like he was homeless and picked on before he met Orochimaru.

Zaku refuses to quit though because of some crap in the past. ZAKU IS ANGRY!!! HE CAN USE BOTH ARMS? It was a ploy it seems.

But wait, now his arms are in pain... THE BUGS ARE ALREADY ON HIS ARMS! Shino gets behind him. Shino distracted him earlier and got some bugs in his sound holes. Shino nails him with a punch.

Kakashi stands in front of Orochimaru taking Sasuke. Orochi laughs and says the curse mark will take control of him eventually.

Shino has won his fight, damn, he's good.

Wow, apparently those insects live inside of his body. lol, nice.

NEXT FIGHT! YESS I love this part. Misumi vs. Kankuro. Uhh, a fight thats not too important. Misumi is the other loser from Kabuto's group. Kankuro is the guy with Gaara. Well, this should be fast.

Overall: This was decent, Shino is cool as hell. But this was a weaker episode than the one before easily


BLEACH EPISODE 40: THE SHINIGAMI WHOM GANJU MET

2 episodes from the end of the season!

Another clip of ICHIGO LOSING, AUGH WHY. WHY.

HOW DID HE LOSE I DON'T GET IT.

Kenny asks why Ichigo is saying he's sorry because... Kenny's sword breaks... ICHIGO WON! YES YES YES! YESYEYEYSYEYSYEYES!!!!

The little pink haired girl thanks "Ichi" it's been a while since Kenny had so much fun! lol, that girl is hilarious. She tells Ichi to stay alive so she can maybe play with Kenny again someday >___>. She now jumps off with Kenny.

THE CAT shows up to Ichigo. He says he won't let Ichigo die. He seems to be using spirit energy.

Kenny and the girl are talking. She says Ichi cheated, so he forfeited the fight, lol.

Kenpachi says he remembers how painful it was back when he didn't have a name. He asks his sword for its name, but he doesn't get it. He's all "I must get stronger". Now Kenny dies? Passes out? I don't know.

Meanwhile, Ganju is still headed for the tower. Him and the squad 4 guy are taking out guards. The squad 4 has a tranquilizer for low spiritual pressure people. He also has a spare key for a door. He's a cool guy, I like him!

They make it to the tower. They see Rukia! Ganju recognizes Rukia. He's freaking out. WTF? Rukia knows what clan Ganju is from. Rukia killed his brother. "Oh crap".

Rukia says it's true. Ganju grabs her. Rukia says he can kill her, Hinatoro is all NO DON'T DO IT. Now, they feel a big time spiritual pressure.

IT'S THE CAPTAIN OF SQUAD 6!!! Ganju says they are screwed. They might as well just beg for their lives now. Ganju doesn't want to fight for Rukia.

WHAT. HINATORO SAYS HE WILL STAY. He wants Ganju to escape with Rukia.

Rukia wants to stop him. Ganju now runs out, HE'S GOING TO FIGHT! He tosses Hinatoro back. Haha.

Overall: YESSS ICHIGO WON! Erm anwyay, the Ganju-Rukia stuff was interesting, and Hinatoro was awesome. Pretty good ep.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 40

Easy enough decision, One Piece was quite a bit better this time around, while Naruto had a weaker fight this time around.

Naruto: 24

One Piece: 16


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Not too hard of a decision here. OP was one of my favorite fighting episodes of East Blue, as we got to see some interesting non-Luffy fights. Bleach meanwhile provided a solid episode, while Naruto was the weakest easily. Bleach pulls to within 2 of Naruto, and OP inches closer to the pack!

Naruto- 43

Bleach- 41

One Piece- 36

Episode 41[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 41: LUFFY'S FULL POWER! NAMI'S COURAGE AND THE STRAW HAT

Geez, about 4:30 gone between theme + last episode.

Arlong offers Nami a choice. If she rejoins Arlong, he will not kill the people of Cocoyashi village.

Nami: Everyone... I'm sorry. Will you die with me?

Haha, awesome. The village will fight!

LUFFY WAKES UP! Sanji now needs to break the stone holding Luffy. Zoro rises. He says he can give him 30 seconds! Badass!

Sanji jumps in, and Zoro blocks Arlong's path.

Luffy finally speaks his first words to Gen.

Luffy: Where's your pinwheel? It was so freaking cool!

XD. I love Luffy so much.

Usopp now arrives to help Zoro! He shoots Arlong with his slingshot. Usopp brags about taking down Cho, hahaha.

Hachi is now getting up in the background. USOPP RUBBERBAND! It uhh doesn't shoot properly >_>. Zoro slashes, he hits Arlong's nose, but it is unbreakable.

Hachi is about to dive underwater to get to Sanji, DAMN. Arlong stabs Zoro as well.

Nojiko sees the octopus coming... SHE CUTS HIM OFF! It looks like she is about to take a big time punch.

OH GOD! Arlong starts ripping at Zoro's wound, HOLY CRAP!!!!

Arlong can't believe he isn't dead, he is about to finish him off... Zoro laughs.

Hachi's wound opens up underwater! He explodes with tons of blood, whoa. Sanji now frees Luffy! Luffy flies into the air, I'M BAAAAAAAACK! Luffy throws Zoro away from the battle "You idiot!". HEADBUTT BY LUFFY! PUNCH! PISTOL! YES YES YES!!!! GATLING GUN!!!!! ARLONG IS GETTING DESTROYED!!!

Arlong emerges from the wreckage, and is perfectly fine! Luffy says he was just warming up.

Arlong: Do you know what the difference is between me and you? Luffy: Noses....... Chins? Oh, the webs! Yosaku: Is luffy trying to joke? Johnny: No... I'm afraid he is quite serious.

This episode has amazing quotes. Arlong is now on the attack, his teeth are amazingly powerful.

Overall: Fun, intense episode. I liked the moment with Nami early on, the underwater stuff was exciting, and Luffy vs. Arlong is off to a good start.




NARUTO EPISODE 41: KUNOICHI RUMBLE- THE RIVALS GET SERIOUS!

Whoa! Kabuto's dude is like a rubber man/Luffy. He wraps around that dude witht he crazy costume/face paint. He threatens to break his neck if he doesn't give up. The costume dude remains confident... CRACK, he breaks his neck!

WHAT!?!?! WHAT!?!?! HE TWISTS HIS HEAD 180 degrees! HE LOOKS LIKE A CRAZY DOLL!

It turns out he is a puppet master, he emerges from his taped up weapon. The puppet master has a major wrap on him, HE GIVES UP! That was quick but kinda cool.

NEXT FIGHT! SAKURA VS. INO! LOL what a coincidence! Also, it's the only ninja who Sakura may actually have the strength to beat lol.

They charge to start, some kicks are dodged, and Kunai, exciting start.

Everyone on the sidelines is unimpressed with the fight, apparently they are going easy on each other. Ino punches Sakura in the stomach, she can land a punch to the face... BUT SLAPS INSTEAD. Lol girls.

Oh god, now we get Sakura-Ino flashbacks, sigh. They really suck, this flashback is sooooo boring. Sakura was so lame as a kid, Ino wasn't bad though.

Sakura starts trashtalking Ino. Ino is getting mad. So basically Sakura is convincing Ino to fight her hardest.

Kakashi tries to talk to Naruto about rivalries... lol. Guy gets pissed that Kakashi is so cool XDXD.

Ino and Sakura now stare down... kid gloves are off!

Overall: It wasn't a bad episode or anything. I enjoyed everything that actually happened inside of the tower, but all the flashbacks were boring and lame. So average to below average episode.


BLEACH EPISODE 41: REUNION, ICHIGO AND RUKIA

Oh god, RANKINGS after this episode. I'll try and figure out which squads I've seen and rank those as well!

Ichigo wakes up in some hut or something. He sees the cat.

Ichigo tries to get up because he's worried about Chad, but the cat stops him. He says Chad was lucky to fight who he did and is injured but OK. Ishida and Orihime are fine as they haven't had a real fight yet. Holy crap I totally forgot about those 2 >_>.

The cat says the hollow mask thing probably saved his life. Ichigo didn't even know he had it on him. The squad 4 guy threw it into the water. The cat FREAKS OUT, he wants the mask now.

Ichigo asks how the cat got him here. He says he was in his true form. The cat is going to show what he really looks like!!! IT'S A GIRL? LOL. BOOOOOOBIES!!!

BOOOOOOOBIES, She's still naked, hahahaha, awesome.

Cat-girl asks if he wants to see her naked again, he might not have another chance!

Now cat girl and Ichigo feel the squad 6 captain. ICHIGO GETS UP. Idiot.

He uses some thing to fly away. Cat girl is all augh.

Back at the bridge, Ganju is screwed. Rukia can't help because she is weakened from her time in the cell. Ganju rushes in, but the captain cuts him and is already behind him, wow.

Squad 6 captain is going to kill Ganju now. His blade disappears. WHAT. Ganju is cut to shreds in an instant. Holy crap holy crap. He has to be dead. O_O.

The squad 6 captain is about to strike Rukia. But another captain shows up.

They now feel a really strong spiritual pressure, IT'S ICHIGO!!! WOOOO!

Ichigo tells Rukia he's here to save her. She starts to cry. She says she told him she would never forgive him if he came after her. Ichigo tells her to shut up, lol. They get into an argument, awesome.

The other captain seems to think Ichigo resembles someone.

FIGHT TIME! Ichigo draws Zangetsu. The guy disappears, ICHIGO BLOCKS IT BARELY!!! YESSS! YESSSS! AWESOME MUSIC! THEY STARE DOWN!! ICHIGO ATTACKS, DISAPPEARS, ICHIGO BLOCKS ANOTHER ATTACK!

Rukia still thinks Ichigo is screwed once he uses his true skill.

Yep, he's about to use the move he used on Ganju. Rukia tells him to run. SCATTER. WAIT, THE HOT ASS CAT GIRL IS HERE! SHE STOPS THE ATTACK! THEY KNOW HER!!!

Overall: God damn cat girl is hot, lawl. I enjoyed the Rukia-Ichigo reunion. The mini fight scene was sweet too. Very soldi episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 41

Another pretty easy decision. One Piece has been intense, and Ino vs. Sakura just isn't hooking me that much.

Naruto: 24

One Piece: 17


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Wow, ANOTHER OP > Bleach. Naruto is really stinking it up here! Naruto had a lame flashback mostly. Bleach was pretty solid throughout, and One Piece was actually pretty awesome most of the way through. Bleach is 1 away from Naruto, and OP inches closer! Enjoy the closeness while you can, because it's so over after this arc.

Naruto- 43

Bleach- 42

One Piece- 38

4. 3rd Dvision- Gin seems awesome.

5. 5th Division- Aizen seemed interesting, and Momo seems OK.

6. 6th Division- Renji is awesome, but the captain sucks, and thus, they are low.

7. 10th Division- Toshiro seems cool

8. 12th Division- The research squad that seems evil.


Episode 42[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 42: BURSTING OUT! FISHMAN ARLONG, FEARSOME ATTACK FROM THE SEA!

Luffy is NOT IMPRESSED with Arlong! Arlong is ANGRY!!!

Luffy grabs 2 swords? What? Thats not like him. He swings them aimlessly at Arlong... and one gets knocked away and broken!

The other one is now bitten! NOW LUFFY WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE!

ARLONG'S TEETH BREAK!!! WOW!

Arlong says that Luffy is a bad captain for being so weak in some areas outside of fighting, Luffy says he can kick his ass at least, haha.

ARLONG'S TEETH GROW BACK! Crap.

Arlong now attacks Luffy with some teeth that he pulled out of his mouth, LUFFY IS GETTING BITTEN! LUFFY PUT ONE OF ARLONG'S MEN IN THE WAY! HE USED ONE OF ARLONG'S KINSMEN AS A SHIELD!

KICK TO THE FACE BY LUFFY! ARLONG IS DOWN! LUFFY PUTS ARLONG'S TEETH IN HIS MOUTH! YES YES YES XD. Arlong is furious! Luffy dodges some more attacks, but he is on the defensive. Now he gets bit by the teeth! HE BITS ARLONG IN THE GILLS WITH HIS TEETH!!! But Arlong is OK. HE NOW BITES LUFFY'S ELBOW! Luffy screams!

Luffy's bones look like they are gonna break from the bite... but Luffy slams Arlong down and breaks free! Arlong dives in the water now and is swimming around. He dives down. NOW HE FLIES LIKE A BULLET FROM THE WATER! Luffy gets hit! He is down.

Arlong says he is surprised Luffy dodged. He does it again, this time from land! But Luffy barely dodges again. This time he does it from the smoke, and now he hits Luffy once... twice with the move.

Luffy isn't scared though! Arlong dives underwater... Luffy is just going to stand there, he refuses to hide. GOMU GOMU SHIELD!

Arlong is getting ready, SHARK ON DARTS, he comes at Luffy... STABBED!

THE SHIELD STOPPED HIM! HIS FINGERS ARE WRAPPED AROUND ARLONG'S FACE!

Arlong keeps trying it. Luffy uses a Gomu Gomu net to stop it. YARI! He slams him to the ground! ARLONG IS STILL OK! His eyes are different now...

He grabs Luffy and swings him around, THROWS HIM INTO THE BUILDING! Damn.

Arlong is attacking like crazy. He grabs a HUGE BLADE now, a saw shaped sword. Man thats badass. Arlong attacks Luffy... dodged. Dodged again.

Now they are inside the building. Luffy has nowhere to run. They are in the map room apparently, where Nami draws her maps. Wow, theres hundreds of maps here.

Overall: Wall to wall action here, lots of great moments, and that right there was about as good as a OP fight has been so far.




NARUTO EPISODE 42: THE ULTIMATE BATTLE - CHA!

Ino and Sakura charge at each other. Sakura replicates herself, only one is real, but Sakura speeds up and punches Ino! Sakura's fighting style seems to be to use basic stuff, but trick her opponent by mixing it up a bit.

They know grab each other, and pull back, 2 shuriken clash in mid-air. Nice.

The two are pretty evenly matched. They both land blows to the face! Both fly backwards!

Ino whips out a kunai. She cuts off her hair like Sakura did! I guess it is to represent she doesn't care about her looks either.

Ino is about to use Mind transfer. What good could that do?

Sakura talks about the flaws of Mind transfer, if Mind transfer misses, Sakura would basically win the fight.

Sakura starts running, INO USES IT... it misses. WHAT! Sakura's legs are tied with a rope, IT WAS A TRAP! Sakura can't move! Ino is going to take over Sakura's body, and is going to maker her say that she gives up. Oh I see, smart.

MIND TRANSFER JUTSU! Did it work? Kakashi says it worked!

Sakura is going to give up. I, Sakura, would like to say... NARUTO INTERRUPTS!!! HE YELLS, STOPPING IT FROM HAPPEN! Now... INO IS LOSING CONTROL!

Naruto inspired Sakura to fight back! She is taking control again!!! SAKURA HAS CONTROL AGAIN! Ino escapes back into her body! Apparently Ino didn't have enough Chakra to do it right.

They charge at each other again... PUNCH! FISTS COLLIDE!!!

Flashback? NOW?!? Ino and Sakura both get hit! Both fall to the ground! Both get up... and fall down again. Neither can fight! Both have lost!

NEXT FIGHT!!!!!

Ten ten vs. Temari. Who vs. Who? It's another girl battle! The girl in Gaara's squad vs. the girl in Rock Lee's squad.

Overall: I really liked this episode, Ino vs. Sakura was really good, and emotional. They cut down on the flashbacks and had an awesome fight. The next fight appears to be another one I won't care too much about, but we seem to be getting closer and closer to the "prime time" matchups. Anyway, very good ep.


BLEACH EPISODE 42: YORUICHI, THE GODDESS OF FLASH, DANCES!

New season, same OP, but I'm not complaining!

Renji is in prison. His sword is talking to him. They want to take on Ichigo again. Renji says he has someone new to fight now...

Rukia says she's heard of Yoruichi. The former commander of the stealth force... O_O. She's been in hiding for over 100 years. Yoruichi says Ichigo is a fool, she quickly attacks, and Ichigo is down. Wow! SHE'S STRONG! SHE DISAPPEARS VERY QUICKLY WHILE CARRYING ICHIGO! THE CAPTAIN CAN'T TOUCH HER! AWESOME! YORUICHI RULES! Plus, she has to carry those giant boobies.

WHAT, THE CAPTAIN CATCHES HER, HE CUTS HER! WAIT, she's fine! Yoruichi says in 3 days she will make Ichigo strong enough to beat him. Awesome. Man, why hasn't she been doing more fighting <_<.

It looks like Ganju is still alive.

Turns out this captain was the captain for Rukia. Rukia was one of her officers.

LOL, Orihime and Ishida are acting like low ranking soul reapers!!!! AWESOME.

We get a flashback, LOL, this was Orihime's plan. Awesome awesome awesome. They took out 2 clowns and stole the clothes so they could get around easier.

Orihime was about to change in front of Ishida... Ishida freaks out!

Orihime: Oh yeah, I forgot boys and girls really aren't supposed to change in front of each other!

Jesus, is every guy in Bleach gay? The girls are all ready and willing to show their boobs, and they run away from it!

The creepy squad 12 guy seems to be following Orihime and Ishida.

Ichigo is pissed when he wakes up, but then he gets hurt again. She says she will train him to take on the squad 6 captain.

She takes him to some secret training ground. Yoruichi says Zangetsu can be released to another level, even though it's always in its released form already. Every sword has a 2nd level. Every captain has their 2nd form. Kenpachi can't do it, but he's the only one ever.

Yoruichi says it generally takes 10 years, but Ichigo can do it in 3 days with a dangerous method.

Overall: Man, I love how Yoruichi randomly got so badass. Yoruichi was great all episode, and the check in with Ishida and Orihime was hilarious, very good start to the new season!


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 42

Both episodes were completely jam packed with action. I really liked both episodes, but OP was epic as hell, a bit more epic that Naruto's fight obviously, and had a few more great moments, so One Piece takes it.

Naruto: 24

One Piece: 18


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Wow. This has to be the first time all 3 shows had "very good" episodes in the same episode. OP takes first easily, as it was super epic, but now we have a very close battle between Bleach and Naruto for 2nd. In the end, I think I'll give the edge to Bleach. Because it had a lot of awesome moments, plus some serious plot progression, with learning more about the Zanpaktou, and Yoruichi, very close though. Bleach ties Naruto, and OP lurks close by.

Bleach- 43

Naruto- 43

One Piece- 40


Episode 43[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 43: THE END OF THE FISHMAN EMPIRE! NAMI IS ONE OF US!

SPOILERZ geeez

Luffy notices Nami's pen has blood on it. Arlong puts his sword to Luffy's head.

LUFFY IS PISSED! HE BREAKS THE SWORD WITH HIS HAND!!!!

Arlong basically gives a speech on why Nami is better off with the superior mermen.

Arlong: She will forever be my TOOL. No... my NAKAMA.

PISSED LUFFY! He kicks a desk! LUFFY IS DESTROYING ALL OF NAMI'S ROOM!

Now the maps are all getting destroyed... Nami sees all of this, and remembers the past. She was pretty cruely treated by Arlong.

Nami cries and thanks Luffy for destroying all the maps. Awwww.

Now arlong is biting Luffy's neck! Holy crap... LUFFY BREAKS ARLONG'S NOSE OFF! HE MUST DESTROY THIS ROOM! I MUST DESTROY IT ALL!!!!!

Arlong fixes his nose, ATTACKS,,, HE BITES... LUFFY SLAMS HIM WITH HIS FOOT! THEY GO DOWN 4 STORIES!!! WHO WON!?!?! LUFFY WON!!!!

Arlong park is collapsing! The whole building is destroyed!

Zoro is asleep XD.

Everyone is waiting to see if Luffy is OK after the building collapses with him in it. The smoke clears. No one knows what happened inside, or who won.

LUFFY EMERGES!!! THATS MY FAVORITE ANIME CHARACTER FOLKS!!!

LUffy: NAMI! YOU ARE MY NAKAMA!!!!

Nami now cries, awww, very touching. Everyone now celebrates the fall of Arlong Park! Nami now walks to Luffy, she places the hat on his head... high five. Thats it? >_>.

Now the corrupt Marines arrive... lawl. He will claim the bounty on Arlong's head, and all of Arlong's riches... Zoro beats his ass.

Blah Blah, flashbacks of Arlong's treachery in the past.

Meanwhile, that one marine places a huge vounty on Luffy's head.

Overall: Great conclusion to the fight, some more awesome quotes and moments here. I also enjoyed the ending celebrations, although stuff at the end maybe dragged on a bit too long, but still a great episode.




NARUTO EPISODE 43: KILLER KUNOICHI AND A SHAKY SHIKAMARU

I'm kinda looking forward to Shikamaru's fight.

I'm also curious who wins this fight. They seem to be building all the sound village guys as the new "main villains", so I'll go with her.

Ten Ten throws some Shuriken to start, they all miss. Ten Ten doesn't understand. She has perfect aim.

Shikamaru says this fight is over. Naruto doesn't understand.

Ten Ten now runs in circles around Temari... she jumps... SCROLL!!!! She turns into a tornado of sorts, weapons fly at Temari, they all miss! Temari didn't even move!

Ten Ten is now going to use her special move or something. Two scrolls are out. Rising twin dragons! Smoke everywhere... 2 dragons emerge into the air, Ten Ten jumps, a bunch of Kunai and Shuriken fly at Temari, she blows them all away with her fan! The weapons are attached to her fingers through a chakra net or something, she tries again, the fan stops her again!

NOW TEMARI DISAPPEARS! SHE GOT BEHIND HER! She is flying on her fan?!?!

Her fans blows tons of air at Ten Ten, ten is getting all cut up. Ten Ten is caught in a whirlwind, and falls to the ground. Well, it wasn't a bad fight I guess.

Temari tries to hurt Ten Ten after the battle. Rock is PISSED! ROck attacks her, but it's blocked.

We get a bunch of trash talk. Guy tells the Sand village to watch out for Rock.

NEXT FIGHT!!!!

Shikamaru vs. Tsuchi... is that a sound village person?

Yep, it's the girl from the sound village. I have a feeling Naruto is gonna fight the main sound village guy. The sound village people are clearly on the way out of this tournament, and the sand village people are on the rise. That would be a good guy for Naruto to take down, so he looks good, but doesn't take out anyone too important.

Shikamaru says it's a "drag" that he has to fight a girl, lawl.

Shikamaru is going to try the shadow thing for some reason, she dodges. She knows his jutsus from before. Shikamaru gets trapped, and gets hit by 2 needles!!!

But he is OK. Now something is happening, Shikamaru falls. The sound of the bells on her needles screws with your brain. Shikamaru gets hit by 3 more needles.

Shikamaru wants her to just end it now. She says OK... But she can't move her arm now! He used his shadow jutsu through the thread! Nice! He controls her movements! She says this doesn't mean anything, she mirrors his movements. He is going to throw a shuriken. Which should mean he will get hit too, as she will throw one at him thanks to the shadow.

They both throw! Shikamaru dodges! But Tsuchi is too close to the wall, when she dodges, she hits the wall, Shikamaru wins! Cool quick fight.

NEXT FIGHT!!!!

NARUTO!!!! VS. KIBA!!!!

I guess I was wrong, what a weird combo. Kiba completely doubts Naruto's skill.

Overall: These Naruto fights may actually be better technically than the One Piece fights. Some quick but fun fights here, and I liked this episode a lot. NARUTO IS NEXT!!


BLEACH EPISODE 43: THE DESPICABLE SHINIGAMI

Orihime's fairies are healing the ninja guy. The fairies say with practice she should be able to summon them without doing that whole chant. The ninja guy says he'll be better in no time.

Ishida think it's better off that she can't fight right now. She doesn't like to fight.

They get stopped by some dude who is drunk as hell. He asks what squad they are from. They say squad 11. The guy says their emblem says squad 12. "Oops". He also notes that they don't have swords. But now some squad 12 guys help them out. Ishida is suspicious. He says the squad 11 guy had a valid point, Ishida says to get away from them to Orihime, now theres an explosion! The squad 12 captain is here!

He's setting off bombs on his own guys. Orihime managed to get a shield up, so Ishida and Orihime are fine. But the 4 squad 12 guys are dead.

The squad 12 captain wants Orihime to be a research subject, because he has never seen that shield before.

Ishida points his bow at him. The captain says he already finished Quincy research. He reveals he is a captain. Ishida tells Orihime to run. He orders the drunk squad 11 guy to take off with her. Oh crap, the squad 12 captain extends his hand, ARROW, it pierces his hand! Man, Ishida is badass.

The squad 12 captain manages to regenerate his arm with some technology or something.

Ishida fires an arrow, he hits him! Wait no, the captain is fine.

The captain starts powering up. His sword looks weird.

WHAT. The vice captain GRABS Ishida. He slashes THROUGH the vice captain in order to land a blow on Ishida. Wow.

The vice captain asks for some medicine, she thinks she's dying. He starts kicking her! He says he created her body, he is insulted. He continues kicking her around.

Ishida now realizes he can't move his arm. His sword immobilizes the part of the body it cuts. Ow, now he cuts the wound again. He wants his vice captain to finish him, but he realizes she can't. He calls her useless and is about to cut her up when Ishida says to leave her alone.

The captain talks about all the things he did to the Quincys. Turns out his last subject was Ishida's grandpa, he even has a picture of the body. Wow, Ishida is getting super pissed obviously.

POWER UP! HE IS PISSED! HE SAYS HE'S HIS GRANDSON! He swears he will kill him! YESSSS.

Overall: This kinda felt like set up, but I'm definitely excited for this fight now. Decent episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 43

I wasn't lying about Naruto's fights. I think from a technical standpoint, they have been better than the OP fights in the Arlong saga. However, Naruto hasn't had anything close to the emotional intensity of One Piece. One Piece takes it again because of that factor, a satisfying conclusion to that saga.

Naruto: 24

One Piece: 19


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: This was the end of the Arlong saga for One Piece, and it takes the end pretty easily here, and is now right behind everything else, although I'm sure it's about to start falling again soon. Naruto also had some fun fights, while Bleach was just OK. OP > Naruto > Bleach. Naruto takes the lead back!

Naruto- 44

Bleach- 43

One Piece- 42


Episode 44[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 44: SETTING OFF WITH A SMILE! FAREWELL, HOMETOWN COCOYASHI VILLAGE!

They are celebrating/recovering.

Luffy is beginning to think they need a doctor, but he thinks they need a musician first because pirates love to sing, lol.

Nami is getting her tattoo removed, sweet. It looks like she is going to get the same tattoo as Nojiko, thats kinda cool.

Usopp drunk is WIN.

Nami looks like she is leaving her treasure here at the village.

The next morning, a crowd is gathered to watch them leave. The people of the town are giving them tons of food! Yesss.

Johnnie and Yosaku are leaving the crew to be bounty hunters. Damn it! It'd be cooler if the crew got really big. Oh well, they hinted that they need more crew earlier on.

Nami is nowhere to be found in the morning... But now she arrives!

She now tells them to set sail, she starts running for the ship. She wants to leave before they thank her I guess. Well, that was weird >_>.

LOL, she stole everyone's wallets on the way out. XD.

YES! We not get the history of why Gen wears the pinwheel. Awesome. It was because it made Nami smile as a baby, now it is next to Bellemere's grave.

Overall: Wasn't terribly exciting or anything, but it was a fun and satisfying conclusion episode




NARUTO EPISODE 44: AKAMARU UNLEASHED! WHO'S TOP DOG NOW?

LET'S DO IT BABY!!!

Like Shino's bugs, Kiba's dog is a part of him, so he can use him in battle. Kiba says he will take on Naruto without his help though.

Everyone thinks Kiba is lucky to draw Naruto, I guess they don't realize he is pretty good now. He has school flashbacks of Naruto sucking.

Kiba does a jutsu and is like super fast or something. He nails Naruto with an elbow. Kiba says it's over. Everyone laffs at Naruto. ARE YOU SERIOUS?!? >_>.

Kakashi laughs. Hm? Sakura starts remembering a bunch of epic Naruto moments about his will to fight. YES I'M LOVING IT.

NARUTO IS UP! KIBA IS SHOCKED! Naruto taunts Akimaru, so now both charge at him. Kiba charges, SMOKE GRENADES. Naruto is surrounded by smoke... He is getting hit all over the place! DAMN IT FIGHT BACK. Naruto can't see a thing. He tries running from the smoke, AKIMARU TACKLES HIM BACK INTO IT! Kiba laughs... Naruto is... down. DAMN IT.

AKIMARU NOW ATTACKS KIBA! WHAT! WHAT! HE IS BITING INTO KIBA!!!

IT'S NARUTO! HE WAS THE DOG! He continues to bite Kiba, lol. He also has Akimaru in his grasp.

Kiba now tosses something at Akimaru... AKIMARU TRANSFORMS! Into a scary looking red puppy! A DEMON DOG! Akimaru now turns into a Kiba clone? They both look like dogs, whoa.

They both attack Naruto... dodge barely! Another attack, still barely dodged.

Naruto can't counterattack, this is bad. Now both are spinning at Naruto... NARUTO IS NAILED! NARUTO FALLS! BLOODY! HE'S DOWN!

Naruto says he will be Hokage. More flashbacks. Hinata says what she likes about Naruto, aww it's pretty sweet and cool. Although, Hinata seems to have followed him around an awful lot over the years >_>.

Naruto gets to his feet again! YES YES!!!! Kiba is stunned!!!

Overall: Decent start to the fight. I like the flashbacks way more than Ino vs. Sakura. The fighting itself wasn't bad, pretty good episode. Naruto's backstory actually kinda pumped me up a lot


BLEACH EPISODE 44: ISHIDA POWER OF LIMITS!

Ishida is using some move that lets a Quincy fight even if their body is all messed up. The captain says he thought it was a lost art.

Ishida now has flashbacks about his training and such. His father didn't want him to be a Quincy.

They both used ranged attacks, all dodged.

Ishida remembers some flashback about the glove he wers. If he takes it off, he'll gain serious power, but then lose his quincy ability forever.

Ishida takes off the glove! POWER UP! He's absorbing power from the stuff around him. The captain is amazed. He says he's gone beyond the limits of human. One shot, dodged. SECOND SHOT NAILS HIM! BAM! He wants him to beg for mercy now. The captain is bleeding like crazy! The captain's sword seems to be going to its next level now. Whoa, it's huge. The sword spews poison gas at him.

It now is going to attack. Ishida draws his bow. He hits the sword! EXPLOOSION! SMOKE EVERYWHERE!

Holy crap. Theres a giant hole through the captain, and his sword. Wow O_O.

WTF. The captain now sticks a sword through himself, it liquifies himself. He can now retreat, and get back to his body in a few days. Meanwhile, Ishida's body is poisoned. The Vice captain tells him to come here. She has an antidote.

The vice captain thanks him for letting him live, Ishida says he just missed.

Ishida doesn't understand how she can have any sort of feelings for him. Ishida drinks it, and leaves.

Ishida is struggling to walk later on. He realizes his time as a Quincy is almost up.

OH, shit! Another squad captain is here! ISHIDA IS SO SCREWED!

Overall: The fight was a bit of a letdown, as not much happened. Flashbacks were OK. Not sure what I think of Ishida losing his power. Not sure if I believe thats permanent. The ending was definitely "whoa" though. OK episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 44

This time, Naruto is the one with some emotional intensity behind it, meanwhile, One Piece was just a kind of laid back/fun episode. I liked it and all, but I liked Naruto more

Naruto: 25

One Piece: 19


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Bleach was a pretty major let down, and actually kind of boring most of the way since they decided to concentrate on meh flashbacks. One Piece was just a celebration/ending episode, but I did like it a decent amount. And Naruto had an awesome Naruto fight. Naruto > OP > Bleach, didn't expect OP to beat Bleach here, but it did. OP ties Bleach for now, but that shouldn't last long.

Naruto- 46

Episode 45[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 45: BOUNTY! STRAW HAT LUFFY BECOMES KNOWN TO THE WORLD!

Thats kinda cool, Zoro is always the famous one, but Luffy has taken down like everyone good in the East Blue, so he should be getting more legendary.

Nami seems to have a tangerine grove on board the ship now.

In the newspaper they bought via seagull... I'm guessing they see the bounty on their heads.

We see a meeting of what I assume are marine leaders. They are talking about Luffy's accomplishments, and thus, are putting a 30 mill bounty on their heads, which is an East Blue record. Wow.

Usopp's friend from his hometown meanwhile sees Usopp on that wanted poster. I guess she is proud of him. She is studying to be a doctor. Could she be their future doctor?

Coby is proud of Luffy, and Axe-Hand Morgan sees it, so does Kuro, wait, I thought they killed him lol, and so does Baratie. Haha, I'm enjoying all the references to past events.

Luffy is also proud of himself >_>. Zoro says this bounty means they will have the best bounty hunters and the best marines after them.

Fullbody sees the Luffy wanted poster too, lol, why? Fullbody wants to go after Luffy, geeeez.

OH WAIT, LUFFY SAILS RIGHT BY THEM!!! Fullbody loads the cannon. Nami is reading the paper, Sanji is cooking >_>. Zoro awfuls to handle it.

HE SLICES A CANNONBALL IN HALF! SWEET! Now their cannon malfunctions and blows up in their faces. They now go to board the ship.

Luffy defeats him pretty easily. They run away and jump into the sea.

On some random island, HAWK EYES lands! He wants to talk to their superiors, I guess they are pirates. IT'S SHANKS! OMG IT'S SHANKS!!!! Hawk Eyes says he saw some pirates that reminded him of something.

SHANKS SEES THAT LUFFY IS A WANTED PIRATE!!! Shanks seems proud.

Shanks and Hawk Eyes drink together, lol.

They have to go through some "reverse mountains" to get to the Grand Line. They are very close apparently. But first they are going to Loguetown. The place where Gold Roger was born and executed.

Overall: Not a very eventful episode, but I did enjoy all the reactions to Luffy's poster. And SHANKS sighting was sweet




NARUTO EPISODE 45: SURPRISE ATTACK! NARUTO'S SECRET WEAPON!

Kiba attacks again... They spin... Naruto jumps... and gets hit. He is still down now. SMOKE, now they are doing it in the smoke.

But Naruto is still up. More smoke, another spinning attack. Naruto now transforms... Another attack by Kiba... Naruto makes himself look like Kiba!

Kiba punches one, I'm guessing he used scent. Yep, he sniffs.

HE WAS WRONG! HE PUNCHED AKAMARU! How could that happen?

Now Kiba punches the other one... IT WAS AKAMARU TOO!!!! What!

He was right the first time! It was a trap! Naruto lands a blow! What a sweet move!

Akamaru seems to be out from that punch.

Naruto is now gonna unveil his SECRET MOVE. Kiba says it's a bluff.

Kiba attacks... Naruto is just dodging... Kiba attacks with his all 4s jutsu, he is nailing Naruto! 2 punches land! Naruto is down!

Naruto gets up! Kiba is too fast for him to do it, Kiba is attacking again, he hits Naruto again!

Kiba comes at him again... Naruto blocks it... AND THROWS HIM AWAY! YES NARUTO YES!!!

NARUTO REFUSES TO LOSE! KIBA ATTACKS AGAIN! NARUTO SMILES, ATTACK! Naruto jumps away, huh? NARUTO IS NAILED AGAIN! Whats going on?

Naruto GETS UP AGAIN! WHAT HEART! WHAT HEART!!!

NARUTO. WILL. NOT. LOSE! WHAT A BADASS!

Naruto will now unveil his technique... Kiba attacks... he gets behind Naruto... NARUTO FARTS! >___________>. Kiba's sense of smell is so strong, that he is having problems moving... <__________<.

Shadow Clone Jutsu by Naruto... he attacks, KIBA IS HIT! THE OTHER 3 HIT HIM INTO THE AIR! THE LAST ONE KICKS HIM TO THE GROUND! AWESOME MANUEVER! AWESOME! AWESOME!!!

Kakashi says he picked that up from watching Sasuke. Naruto calls it Uzimaki Barrage, Sasuke called it Lion's barrage... lol.

NARUTO WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't mind that much about the farting thing btw, it was kinda funny, and on par for Naruto.

Overall: Good fight. Not AMAZING, but the end was pretty epic. The fart didn't bother me much... in some ways it sorta made sense >_>.


BLEACH EPISODE 45: OVERCOME THE LIMITS!

The captain guy makes everything go black and white somehow, Ishida passes out. Well then! The guy says the fighting needs to stop.

Yoruichi has something that can draw out Zangetsu to our world.

Once Zangetsu is summoned, Ichigo will have 3 days to defeat him or else... Ichigo stabs the thing before she can finish. Zangetsu is here!

Zangetsu makes a bunch of swords appear. He has to find the one that is him, and then defeat him, before he gets killed himself. Ichigo goes for a sword...

We now meet the 3rd seat of Squad 4. He says the place is chaos, plus, Chad was admitted into care recently, so things are even crazier.

Now the captain of squad 9 asks for squad 4 to take care of Ishida.

Meanwhile, Hinatoro is being judged by the captain of squad 4. We letter see him walking with the lieutenant, who seems to support his actions.

Renji breaks out of prison. It's pretty clear he's after his captain.

IT'S CAPTAIN ICHIMARU!!! He shows up at the prison of the guy who attacked Momo. He asks if the guy wants his help.

Ichigo is getting his ass kicked.

Looks like Yachiru found Orihime, so she seems to be a prisoner. The squad 11 guys are talking to her. She isn't tied up or in prison or anything. Whoa, Kenny says he's going to help her out! He says if he sticks with her, he thinks he'll see Ichigo soon.

Ishida and Ganju are in the same cell. Geez, this invasion has gone well, but not well enough clearly >_>. That means only Ichigo and Yachiru are left.

CHAD is here too! Ishida wonders why they are keeping them alive and treating their wounds. Chad says it's because of Aizen's death.

Wow, theres like a hundred swords. Ichigo tries his 19th sword, and it sucks, he gets cut. Turns out all these swords represent his weaknesses. One is for combat.

We see Momo again with that letter.

Overall: This wasn't a bad episode. Some interesting developments going on, and we met some key figured in Squad 4 and 9, which was kinda cool, as I like learning more about the squads.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 45

OP had some pretty big momentum, but has slowed down considerably, while the very solid exams keep chugging along. Naruto with another win, pretty easy one.

Naruto: 26

One Piece: 19


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: Naruto takes the win easy with a solid fight. OP was kind of a fun episode, with Luffy getting his bounty, but Bleach had some good plot progression and takes 2nd pretty easily as well. Naruto's leads is getting bigger!

Naruto- 48

Bleach- 44

One Piece- 43

Episode 46[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 46: CHASE STRAW HAT! LITTLE BUGGY'S BIG ADVENTURE!

Buggy? What?

They are talking about the fate of Buggy. >_>.

Buggy is on some island, and he built a raft to escape. He WILL have his revenge. LOL He is still a midget >_>. Man, this is such a waste of time >_>.

Buggy is uhh, eaten by a giant bird on an island, then gets spit out, he flies into the air Team Rocket style. He actually flies past Luffy's ship and crashes into a new island relatively close to them I guess.

He landed on the island with the barrel guy! He uses his Devil Fruit ability to grab the barrel guy. They have a fight... Box guy wins.

They realize they are both pirates now and uhh eat together >_>. And drink booze together <_<.

Box dude tells Buggy about Luffy. Buggy talks about Luffy too, but they never say names so neither knows.

The next day Buggy leaves the island, him and box dude cry >_>.

As Buffy leaves, a HUGE sea crab attacks the raft. Theres a ship sailing by... It fires a cannon at the crab, saving Buggy. Some chick seems to be the captain.

She knows that it's buggy, and she is looking for Luffy.

Overall: Ughhhh, realllly boring episode. That may be the worst episode of OP so far. Usually even the more uneventful ones have their moments, this one didn't.




NARUTO EPISODE 46: BYAKUGAN BATTLE: HINATA GROWS BOLD!

Kiba wants Hinata to forfeit if she gets Neji or Gaara.

NEJI VS. HINATA. Whats the backstory? There seems to be one. They have the same eyes. Brother/sister?

Yep, brother and sister. Well, kind of related anyway. Apparently Hinata and Neji's family have some bad blood. The fight is about to begin. Neji wants Hinata to give up, because she is too gentle. Neji says Hinata didn't even want to do this, she says she did want to, to see if she could change.

Hinata was shunned by her father or something. Neji taughts Hinata right away, he says that Hinata wants to run.

Neji uses his visual jutsu, which is similar to the Sharingan.

Hinata looks frightened. Neji looks scary. He can just about read Hinata's mind with this ability, he can see everything. Hinata is really frightened by the trash talk, NARUTO YELLS AT HER! HE SAYS SHE NEEDS TO PROVE HIM WRONG! YEAH NARUTO!

Hinata isn't scared! She is thinking of inspirational Naruto quotes! SHE USES THE MOVE TOO!!!

THEY ATTACK! Hinata is on the offensive! Epic fight, blocks and dodges all over!!!

HINATA WITH A BIG ATTACK...BARELY MISSES! Damn. But something about their tai-jutsu means Neji was still hit, his internal organs are hit.

More epic hand to hand. HINATA SAYS SHE CAN DO THIS!

Blah Blah, bunch of crap about the Chakra network. Don't care.

HINATA LANDS ANOTHER BLOW!!! YES!

Overall: The actual fighting was pretty exciting, I didn't care that much for the backstory stuff though.


BLEACH EPISODE 46: AUTHENTIC RECORDS! SCHOOL OF SHINIGAMI

We see Renji running, we also see the guy Gin let out of prison walking outside. Hmmm.

Flashback! Momo and Toshiro were childhood friends. Momo is headed for soul reaper school. Renji and Rukia are headed to their first day of school as well.

We also see the blonde guy that attacked Momo. Rukia is the only one of those guys not in the advanced class, thanks to some entrance exam.

Momo and the blonde guy excel early on in some weird spirit target practice. Renji's shot sucked seriously, he scorches himself, lawl >_>.

Renji beats the blonde guy in a sword fight, but it was just a practice figh, Renji went too hard on him.

The blonde guy approaches Renji after class. He's impressed with his skill. He's very nice to him. His name is Kira. He says it's an honor to meet him. Renji says manners aren't his style, but nice to meet him.

Somethings going on, a captain is showing up to check out the class. It's AIZEN, and Ichimaru is behind him. I suppose Gin used to be his lieutenant.

Man, Toshiro is annoying as hell as a kid.

Momo was impressed with Aizen, and wants to be in his squad one day.

The advanced class is heading to the real world to practice fighting dummy hollows. Kira and Renji are together along with Momo.

The exercise goes well. But there appears to be a real hollow lurking around. Yep, the barrier unit is all dead. Now the students are encountered by a real hollow. One of the 6th year students dies, now another one does.

All the freshmen are running away. Momo is just watching though. It looks like she is going to fight. The best 6th year student is barely fighting it off. Now Renji and crew show up and block an attack. All 3 now do their red spirit attack, it hits, they now run.

Now more hollows show up "oh geez". They are surrounded. Kira is freaking out, and now someone arrives and takes it out easy as hell. CAPTAIN AIZEN AND ICHIMARU!!! Ichimaru pwns like crazy. Man he's awesome.

Momo is impressed with Aizen yet again.

Back to her in prison. Whoa, she takes out her guard. Gosh these prisons don't have good security!

Overall: I actually liked this episode quite a bit. The soul reaper school was interesting. It made me think what the show would be like if it took a more Naruto approach and had Ichigo work his way through school/through the ranks of the squad. They could have used this Rukia storyline eventually, just some other way, but with Ichigo as a 3rd seat or something like that. But yeah, I liked this.



Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 36

I wasn't excited by the Buggy sub-plot. Pretty much every episode in the prelims has been "solid/slightly above average" at the very least, and that streak stays in tact.

Naruto: 27

One Piece: 19


Naruto vs. Bleach vs. One Piece: One Piece was that super boring Buggy episode and is easy last place. Naruto had some solid fighting, but also crappy backstory. Bleach meanwhile had some awesome and interesting backstory. Bleach > Naruto > OP. The epic Naruto-Bleach battle continues!

Naruto- 49

Bleach- 46

One Piece- 43

Episode 47[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 47: THE WAIT IS OVER! THE RETURN OF CAPTAIN BUFFY!

Nooooo. I don't remember waiting for this!!!

Buggy wonders what happened to his crew. Buggy's crew is having a funeral service for him >_>.

Cabaji says he will be the new leader, Mohji says it should be him.

So, they are going to fight for it. A ring is set up.

After an attack, they both destroy each others weapons. So now, it shall be a fist fight. It's a pretty decent fight I must say. It seems to go on all day, this fist fight. Now it is night, and the fight is still raging on.

Now they both land a same time punch.

Meanwhile, the Lion has a dream about being captain >_>. He actually would be a sweet captain <_<.

WAIT, IN HIS SLEEP, RICHIE THE LION PUNCHES OUT BOTH OF THEM! RICHIE IS THE NEW CAPTAIN!!! YES YES YES!!!

Now they get surrounded by uhh natives? RICHIE ATTACKS!!! And is easily owned... : (. They surrender to the natives.

Buggy now sees his flagship! They make it there, and see his grave!

Buggy sees Mohji and Cabaji. The girl captain says that the tribe who lives here eats humans, so they have to hurry to save the crew.

BUGGY ARRIVES! He has his body back! He beats the crap out of the tribe!! BUGGY BOMB! Now Buggy does a bunch of sweet moves to own the tribe.

The Buggy crew is now after Luffy's head.

Meanwhile, Luffy and crew can see Loguetown.

Overall: Not GREAT, but I enjoyed it way more than the last episode. I'll say it was average.




NARUTO EPISODE 47: A FAILURE STANDS TALL!

IT WAS HINATA WHO WAS HIT! CRAP!

HINATA WON'T GIVE UP, SHE STRIKES, BLOCKED!! Now he NAILS Hinata, Hinata is down.

Hinata is dripping blood from her face, she says she never goes back on her word! Naruto quote!!!

But Hinata is still hurt from those internal wounds. Her sensei says one more blow and she is done. Kakashi and Guy say it is over.

Naruto cheers on Hinata, which motivates her again, hand to hand combat. More flashbacks of her watching Naruto. She says Naruto fills her with courage.

ANOTHER HIT TO HINATA! But she is still standing.

SHE GETS NAILED AGAIN!! Owowowow that looked bad. Hinata falls to the ground. Neji is a d-bag about her being down.

The proctor is going to end the fight, NARUTO YELLS! DON'T STOP THIS MATCH!!! NARUTO SAW HER MOVING!!! SHE IS GETTING UP!!! NO WAY!!! WHAT HEART!

Neji runs at Hinata, HE GETS STOPPED BY GUY/KAKASHI/OTHERS. They say the match is over. Hinata now falls over.

Neji now taunts Naruto. Naruto ATTACKS! Rock stops him.

Man, a Naruto vs. Neji match would be so awesome. Rock and Guy now "share a thumbs up moment" LOL.

Hinata is apparently going into cardiac arrest, they carry her off. Naruto takes some of Hinata's blood into his hand, I VOW TO WIN!

Overall: Pretty cool/emotional. This fight served the purpose of making me want to see a Naruto vs. Neji fight badly. I liked Hinata's character development too, good episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 47

Pretty good fight in Naruto, it entertained me. One Piece showed some improvement but was still kinda lame. The new arc is starting though, and I am excited for that, but Naruto took this easy. Naruto feels like it is starting to pull away once again.

Naruto: 28

One Piece: 19



Episode 48[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 48: THE TOWN OF THE BEGINNING AND THE END! LANDFALL AT LOGUETOWN!

New theme! TECHNO! Mmm, it's actually not bad. I think I may like it more than I liked We Are the first time I heard that.

They are gonna stock up before the Grand Line.

The Marines in Loguetown know that Luffy is on his way. Captain Smoker seems to be in charge. He doesn't seem too concerned.

Smoker comes across some other pirates in town.

Meanwhile, Nami is talking about him with some merchant. Apparently he has a Devil Fruit's power. No pirates come here anymore to stock up before the Grand Line, because he puts them all in the slammer. This arc just got interesting.

LUFFY SEES SMOKER! He asks for directions to the execution platform, Smoker tells him via his smoke >_>.

Meanwhile, Zoro witnesses a woman swordsman take down some pirates. And uhh, he also breaks her glasses accidentally >_>.

Luffy finds a bar named Gold Roger and talks to the owner about Gold Roger. Man, Gold Roger was intense. I never realized he must have been extremely powerful, his power is never talked about. The owner seems unimpressed with today's pirates. Luffy tells him that he is sailing for the Grand Line. The owner seems to see a lot of Roger in Luffy.

Smoker now enters the bar. Luffy seems to be gone. The owner says that Smoker ruined his business, I guess since Pirates no longer come here.

Smoker now remembers the day Gold Roger died. Roger showed no fear on his way to the platform. We now see his death, with his final words. They make more sense now.

Smoker now sees the wanted poster for Luffy, he is heading after him!

Overall: I love the development of Roger. It is kind of crazy that we knew next to nothing about him, so I'm glad to learn more, he's a cool character. Smoker is interesting too. Good ep.




NARUTO EPISODE 48: GAARA VS. ROCK LEE: THE POWER OF YOUTH EXPLODES!

YESYESYES!!!

Shikamaru points out that all of Choji's potential opponents are insanely good. Owned.

Apparently, Gaara's bloodlust is rising.

NEXT MATCH!!!!

GAARA VS. ROCK LEE!!! YES YES YES!! YESYESES!!!

ROCK AND ROLL!!!!!!

LEAF HURRICANE TO START! Sand blocks it. The sand also seems to attack Rock, but he flips away.

ROCK ATTACKS AGAIN! It's all blocked by the sand. Now the sand is attacking him, but Rock fights it off. Gaara has not moved all match.

THE SAND NOW GRABS ROCK! It throws him against the wall! He attacks again, keeps getting blocked! Sakura thinks Rock needs to go for some ninjutsu or genjutsu... but he only has Tai jutsu according to Guy, haha.

Guy now flips away, but he trips on the sand. The sand is attacking. ROCK GETS AWAY! He is fast. Guy now gives Rock permission to take off his training weights! Lol. WHOA! They were actually like 50+ pounds of weight on his legs at least! ROCK IS SUPER FAST! GAARA IS SHOCKED!!!! HE IS ALMOST HITTING HIM!!! HE'S SO FAST!!! THATS RIGHT GAARA YOU STUPID *****, SIT THERE AND DO NOTHING LIKE THE ***** YOU ARE!

GUY FLIPS!!! HE STRIKES GAARA! GAARA HAS BEEN HIT! BLOOD! OWNED GAARA! OWNED!!!

ROCK IS TOO FAST! GAARA CAN'T KEEP UP! HE GETS NAILED AGAIN!!! DIRECT HIT!

WHAT? GAARA LOOKS CRAZY! HIS FACE IS FALLING OFF! He had sand over his face it seems.

Gaara's inner demon has been awakened. It's like he wears armor I guess. Man, he is such a *****. He has like no skill.

Gaara asks if that is all.

ROCK TAKES OFF THE TAPE! THATS RIGHT! SUPER SPEED!!! He's doing circles around Gaara... NAILS GAARA! NOW IN THE STOMACH! Lotus puts lots of strain on the body, Guy thinks he needs to finish him off now. GAARA IS WRAPPED IN TAPE!!! SPINNING PILE DRIVER! YES YES YES! TAKE IT GAARA! TAKE IT!

IT'S OVER! ROCK WON!!! Gaara looks like he has cracks all over his face... what?

His whole body is breaking apart... he just turned into sand. Huh?

Overall: Pretty exciting fight, I was into it, but I don't think it was as exciting as was hyped thus far. But that could change, we have another episode of this fight after all.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 48

Gaara vs. Rock isn't that amazing yet, but it was still very good. I greatly enjoyed meeting Smoker, and learning about Gold Roger, but that can't top a great Naruto fight like this.

Naruto: 29

One Piece: 19



Episode 49[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 49: KITETSU III AND YUBASHIRI! ZORO'S NEW SWORDS, AND THE WOMAN SERGEANT MAJOR!

Smoker is going after Luffy alone. He finds Luffy trying to climb the platform where Roger was executed. Smoker tells Luffy he is under arrest, so now they will fight.

Smoker is super fast! He is nailing Luffy at every turn. Luffy gets up and smiles. Luffy now tries a move, misses, and uhh it causes him to fly away. He ends up crashing somewhere in the city kinda far away. Lots of people see this happen. Luffy now decides to take a nap where he landed >_>.

Zoro gets takes to marine headquarters by that girl whom he broke's glasses. He is going to do Janitor work to make up the cost? >_>. He watches the girl fight outside and is reminded of that one girl from his childhood.

Some marines recognize him as he cleans... so he takes them out >_>. He then leaves some money for the glasses, and books it.

He heads to the sword shop to buy 2 more swords. When he is there, that marine chick that looks like Kuina shows up! She admires Zoro's sword. She says the way he has 3 swords is just like a guy named Zoro. She thinks Zoro is an evil man for using a sword for money or something.

Apparently one of the swords in the bargain bin is a famous sword. But apparently it is cursed. All the swordsmen who use these types of swords end up dead.

ZORO WILL TAKE IT!!!! LOL. YESYES. Zoro tosses it into the air, if the sharp side hits his arm, it will take it off... the blunt side hits his arm! Awesome!

Now the guy offers him THE BEST SWORD IN HIS SHOP for free! BADASS! He says it has been a long time since he saw a true swordsman.

Luffy is heading back to the executionm platform.

Buggy finally spots Luffy. The marines also know of Luffy's presence obviously.

Also, the marine chick figures out it was Zoro after all.

Overall: Actually, a pretty fun episode. Smoker vs. Luffy was lame, all the stuff with Zoro was pure awesome though. I'm glad he has 3 really sweet swords with a backstory of sorts, thats pretty cool.




NARUTO EPISODE 49: LEE'S HIDDEN STRENGTH: FORBIDDEN SECRET JUTSU!

Gaara now reappears behind Lee, his face looks strange, his inner demon is coming out.

A burst of sand comes at Rock and knows him down. Now a whole wave of sand comes flying at Rock and knocks him down. More sand now comes at Rock. Rock can't dodge because of the Lotus. Man, the Lotus never works >_>. Lee is in so much pain, he can hardly move at all. Damn.

Rock is now barely dodging everything. Everyone says he is screwed.

ROCK FLASHBACK. He sucked as a child at being a ninja. But he worked harder than anyone else at improving his tai-jutsu. It's a pretty cool flashback.

Sand hits Rock again and he is down. He still isn't giving up.

Lee gets hit again... and again.

More flashbacks... he worked so hard to be good without natural talent, but he still wasn't doing that well, so he started crying. This is when Guy comes and talks to him. Guy calls him a genius like Neji, except for his perseverance.

Guy says him and Rock are a lot alike. He inspired Rock to keep going, man, that was pretty awesome.

Lee is up again. He starts crying... I guess he was remembering that.

LEE DODGES! LEE DODGES! SUPER FAST! WHAT HEART!

Lee is dodging... Guy and Kakashi are talking about something weird.

Basically, the lotus opens chakra gates, that cut out chakra limiters and make someone super strong. The Lotus breaks one of the gates, the hidden lotus can break even more gates, but this could lead to your death.

Kakashi is mad at Guy for teaching Rock this, but Guy says that he doesn't know Rock, he will do whatever it takes to help Rock obtain his goal.

He can only use the hidden lotus under one condition, he doesn't say what it is though.

ROCK IS POWERING UP!!!!!!! IT IS NOW OR NEVERRRR!!!!!

TO PROTECT AND MAINTAIN ONE'S OWN NINJA WAY! NINJA GATE 3! OPEN!!!

Overall: I liked the flashbacks, they were pretty cool, even if we already kind of knew this stuff about Rock's past. That ending power up though, BUT THIS **** INTO "AWESOME" TERRITORY! WHAT AN AWESOME POWER UP!


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 49

I like Rock's flashbacks, but we have already kind of been over how Rock sucks at gen and ninjutsu. So I though they were good but not great flashbacks. Meanwhile, OP concentrating on Zoro, and giving all his new swords a bit of a backstory was pretty badass. But then, ROCK POWERS UP to end the episode, an exhilarating moment that put Naruto over the top for me.

Naruto: 30

One Piece: 19



Episode 50[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 50: USOPP VS. DADDY THE PARENT! SHOWDOWN AT HIGH NOON!

what, this sounds dumb >_>.

Some dude named Daddy shows up, a bounty hunter it seems. He used to be a marine sniper, but now he hunts weaklings, because he doesn't want to die I guess.

Luffy and Zoro are outside, they witness 5 men surround this "daddy" guy. He shoots all of them quickly. He spares the youngest one.

Meanwhile, Usopp comes across a snotty little girl, she is the daughter of "Daddy", DADDY IS PISSED! Usopp is screwed.

Daddy now wants a duel with Usopp for the goggles.

Daddy is apparently the best shooter in the East Blue. Nami is watching.

Step 1... 2... 3...4...5...

Usopp doesn't think he can win.

6...7...8... SMOKE BOMB BY USOPP! HE RUNS!!!! Daddy shoots the gun out of his hand! Usopp begs for his life. Daddy knows the name Usopp! He asks if Usopp knows a Yasopp. Daddy has a story about Yasopp. I guess he dueled him, and lost.

Yasopp could've killed him, but didn't, because of his daughter.

Usopp is crying. He doesn't want to be cowardly anymore. He wants to duel daddy again!

Usopp takes out his slingshot. He has to hit a weathervane that is pretty far away. If he misses, Daddy will shoot. Cop out so they dont have to kill either, and so Usopp doesnt have to get pwned imo >_>.

Usopp shoots... Usopp with a hit! Nice! Daddy says Usopp could one day be like his father. He tells him to go to the Grand Line, he should find Yasopp there.

Usopp gets the goggles he wanted from the little girl.

Overall: Good episode. Usopp with character developement was cool, that ending shot was actually pretty intense too. I liked Daddy as well.




NARUTO EPISODE 50: THE FIFTH GATE: A SPLENDID NINJA IS BORN

Rock's skin is red now. He has opened the 3rd gate.

NOW HE OPENS THE FOURTH GATE!!!!!! NO WAY!

SUPER SPEED! GAARA GETS NAILED! HE IS FASTER THAN EVER!!!!

Gaara is hit into the air... Lee is gone... SUPER SPEED! HE IS HITTING GAARA ALL OVER THE PLACE! GAARA'S SHIELD IS CRUMBLING!

THE FIFTH GATE! THE GATE OF CLOSING! OPEN! GAARA IS SHOCKED!

PUNCH TO THE GUT! INSANE! INSANE!!!! THE TAPE IS WRAPPED AROUND GAARA!!!! GAARA IS IN TROUBLE! DO IT ROCK! DO IT! HE PULLS GAARA TOWARDS HIM, AND NOW KNOCKS HIM TO THE GROUND!!!!

EXPLOSION!!! Lee is down, and looks normal again.

Gaara is down. He cushioned his fall by turning the Gourd to Sand, so he is still alive. Now it looks like he is going for that one move where he explodes his opponents, SAND COFFIN. Rock can't even move! NO ROCK! DON'T DIE!!!

ROCK IS TRYING TO GET AWAY, BUT CAN'T!!! The sand is wrapping around him, SAND COFFIN! It breaks Rock's arm and leg! Rock is down! MORE SAND IS COMING AT HIM! Guy stands in the way. DAMN IT, I guess Rock loses.

'****'! Screw Gaara, he is garbage. Gaara doesn't understand why Guy would save Rock when he failed. WHAT? Gaara says he quits? Weird.

WAIT WHAT! ROCK IS UP! HOW?! WHAT WHAT WHAT!!! He has blood all over him.

Guy tells ROck not to fight, it's over... he cries... Rock is unconscious, but so determined he is up. Guy says he has proven everything he has to. He is a splendid ninja.

The winner is Gaara.

Naruto now jumps down, and runs to Rock. He makes eye contact with Gaara.

The medic gives the news to Guy... his left arm and leg have suffered massive damage. He will never fight again, WHAT, WHAT, WHAT. NO, NO, NOOOOOOOO.

Guy is crying. He says it is all his fault.

Naruto asks if it was all a lie... he was supposed to be a failure who proved them all wrong. Kakashi tells Naruto that Rock sacrificed himself for an opportunity at fighting him too... don't forget that sacrifice.

Time for the final match. Choji vs. Sound village guy. Uhh, I'm cheering for Sound Ninja >_>. Choji's motivation is an all or nothing BBQ.

Dosu realizes that Orochimaru was only using them as pawns.

Overall: Man, intense episode. The fight was great, but didn't quite live up to the hype. After the fight may have been the best part of the fight, man, that was pretty emotional. Rock never fighting again... sucks. I almost wanted to cry for him.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 50

One Piece didn't stand a chance here. Naruto was way too intense, with the action and emotion.

Naruto: 31

One Piece: 19



Episode 51[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 51: FIREY COOKING BATTLE? SANJI VS. THE BEAUTIFUL CHEF!

OK, I couldn't tell that the last episode was filler, but this HAS to be filler >_>.

Some women cook confronts Sanji in town. Apparently Carmen has been crushing chefs in cooking battles all over the East Blue. Apparently some newspaper article called him the best chef in the East Blue, so she has been searching for Sanji to face him.

Apparently Sanji doesn't plan on entering the cooking contest though.

Meanwhile, some fishermen catch an extremely rare type of fish. They decide to put it up as a prize in the cooking contest, so now Sanji is going to enter it.

Ha, this is actually in tournament format. They do a little montage as Sanji and that other chick make the finals.

LOL at how a cooking contest is practically turned into an action sequence hahahaa.

Blah blah, we get random "All Blue" flashbacks as the contest goes on, this is getting old.

It's over, the winner is.... SAN... STOP! Carmen says to stop. She walks up to Sanji. She apparently knew about Sanji's All Blue dream from ten years ago, she calls Sanji the best in the East Blue.

Meanwhile, Luffy has made his way back to the execution platform. Smoker knows he is there. So does Buggy and his crew. And so does that mysterious woman. Hmmm.

Overall: The cooking contest was kind of fun filler. I wasn't bored or anything, and now we seem to be building towards a big fight. Decent episode.




NARUTO EPISODE 51: A SHADOW IN DARKNESS: DANGER APPROACHES SASUKE

The sound village guy's VA is so badass.

Choji balloons up... BLANCA ATTACK!!! CHOJI RUNS INTO A WALL! PUNCH! Sound guy uses his sound thing, and owns Choji. Thank god >_>.

So that leaves

Dosu Gaara Sand Girl Sand Guy Naruto Sasuke Neji Shikamaru Shino

9 people left. Which would screw with a tournament format, so my early assumption is Sasuke won't be able to compete.

Orochimaru is planning something... He wants Kabuto to abduct Sasuke. Apparently, Naruto has changed Sasuke some. If Orochimaru can separate them, he can start to control Sasuke easier.

WHAT WHAT. The finals will be a month from now. : (

In the hospital area... it looks like Kabuto is going to kill Sasuke. To save him from Orochimaru I guess? KAKASHI STOPS HIM! Kakashi says Kabuto is no ordinary Genin. Kabuto puts a knife to Sasuke's neck... KAKASHI GETS HIM!!! Nice!

But Kabuto escapes with some jutsu. That was crazy, Kabuto is getting more interesting by the second, isn't he?

They are all taking numbers. To determine matchups I imagine.

WE HAVE THE BRACKET SET!!!!

Naruto vs. Neji Gaara vs. Sasuke Shino vs. Kankuro Temari- Bye Dosu vs. Shikamaru

OMGOMG! Some AWESOME matchups. Early predictions...

Naruto Gaara Shino Shikamaru

Naruto Shino Temari

Temari Naruto

Naruto

Shikamaru: I guess I'll be expected to avenge Choji's loss...

LOL, Shikamaru rules.

Man, that is TOUGH to predict. The entire left side of the bracket is stacked with all the biggest names, it's tough to create an interesting finals because of that. I can't see Gaara making the finals because that creates awkward matchups with everyone on the right side of the bracket. The winner of Naruto vs. Neji decides the winner of this tournament imo. I went with Naruto... probably a LOL decision but I'm hoping for the power of the FOX to come through. Also, there needs to be some sort of good guy in there, as I can't see Sasuke beating Gaara.

While there is a tournament, there will be judges to judge who gets to be a Chuunin. So you can advance even if you lose in Round 1.

Naruto is given Ebisu as a tutor for the tournament.

Overall: Fight sucked obviously, but all the other developments were quite interesting. Also, YESSS BRACKET!!!


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 51

Naruto didn't have fighting this time, but it still intrigued me, and I liked the episode quite a bit. One Piece was decent filler at best. Now OP has the chance to maybe take some episodes depending on how long this "month" lasts.

Naruto: 32

One Piece: 19



Episode 52[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 52: BUGGY'S REVENGE! THE MAN WHO SMILES ON THE EXECUTION PLATFORM!

That lady that saved Buggy is talking to Luffy. She says Luffy was the first man to ever strike her, and she was moved... what? I don't remember her >_>. She is in love with Luffy because he is a strong man O_o.

Her name is Alvida... IT'S THE FAT CHICK FROM AN EARLY ARC. OMGOMGOMG. YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME, SHE'S SO HOT NOW WTFTWF. She ate a "smoothed skin" Devil Fruit, which changed her. Also, her skin can't be hurt now. She still thinks she isn't any more beautiful than she used to be even though she is skinny now >_>.

Now Buggy arrives. One of his men traps Luffy in some stockades, just like ROger was before he was executed. Buggy is going to execute him!

Meanwhile, the rest of the crew, and Smoker, hear that Buggy and Alvida are here.

Luffy doesn't realize he is about to be executed >____>.

Nami realizes the Marines will probably attack the Going Merry, so her and Usopp are running towards the ship to save it.

Buggy asks for last words... I AM THE ONE WHO WILL BECOME THE PIRATE KING!!!!

ZORO AND SANJI ARE HERE! Buggy is about to slash off Luffy's head... The marines are ready to attack once Luffy dies... Luffy smiles and says he is sorry, he's dead... Lightning strikes, and destroys the platform and electrocutes Buggy. Is that really how Luffy survives? Man he has been so lame this arc, getting owned by Smoker and Buggy?

Now the Marines surround them! They are attacking Buggy's pirates. Luffy and crew are going to book it now.

Smoker is obsessed with the fact that Luffy was smiling before his death. He compares the moment to Jolly Roger. He also says the wind is perfect for his getaway too.

Smoker: It's like Heaven itself is keeping that man alive...

Smoker vows to not let Luffy leave the island.

Overall: Pretty good episode. I'm not a huge fan of how Luffy escaped, but they did do some good stuff with it after it happened.




NARUTO EPISODE 52: EBISU RETURNS: NARUTO'S TOUGHEST TRAINING YET!

Kakashi wants Naruto to work on the basics during his training.

Naruto doesn't respect Ebisu because of his sexy jutsu. He tells Naruto if he can run away from Ebisu, he won't train him. So, Naruto runs off. Ebisu is keeping up though.

Now Naruto does Shadow Clone! They all run off in different directions! Ebisu does his own Shadow Clone jutsu now! He starts trapping all the shadow clones, and eventually Ebisu catches Naruto himself now. Ebisu thinks he has him now, but Naruto won't give up! He attacks Ebisu! Ebisu disappears. Naruto loses.

Now Ebisu and Naruto are eating Ramen. Ebisu says Naruto's weakest point is Chakra Control. Basically, Naruto has to exert way more effort to make clones.

They now head to the Hot Springs, Ebisu is gonna teach him to walk on water!!!

Naruto sucks at it to start, obviously. But he is starting to get better at it! He has a flashback of how Konohomaru started working harder because of Naruto. He is gaining a lot of respect for Naruto.

Now Ebisu spots some old man peeking in the woman's bath, Ebisu attacks, A GIANT FROG APPEARS!!! It owns Ebisu, wtf random.

Overall: I liked the end with Naruto improving, but everything else was pretty meh.


Naruto vs. One Piece EPISODE 52
