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.

ONE PIECE EPISODE 67: DELIVER PRINCESS VIVI! LUFFY PIRATES DEPART

Let's see if One Piece can keep up the awesomeness for this arc. Also, I had to use a new site for this episode, and I think the sub is different, could be a good or bad thing.

Luffy and Zoro are now going to continue their fight. They are about to attack, NAMI PUNCHES THEM BOTH! Luffy and Zoro still attempt to fight, but Nami knocks them out.

Fast forward to a bit later.

Luffy: Man, Zoro! Why didn't you just say? I thought you got mad and killed em all just 'cause they didn't have your favorite food! Zoro: YOU JERK, THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD DO!

Nami is trying to get 1 billion to deliver her safely. Vivi says it is impossible. She says Alabasta's citizens have rebelled recently. She discovered that it was the work of Baroque Works. The leader's true goal is to seize the throne of Alabasta. She needs to get back and tell the people.

Luffy wants to know who the identity of the leader is. She says she can't say that or they will be hunted down. He is one of the Shichibukai... Crocodile. Lol. "Oops".

Nami is pissed and says they are screwed. Luffy and Zoro are excited to fight them. Luffy agrees to take Vivi to Alabasta now. The captain of the guard is dressed like Vivi >____>. He is going to be on a decoy ship. He says after a few islands they should make it to Alabasta.

WHAT, HOLY CRAP. The ship is a little off the coast when it BLOWS UP. Mr. 8 is dead, noooo. He was awesome ;_;. Zoro says they have to leave now. Vivi looks shocked and frightened, Nami tells her Luffy and crew can take on Baroque Works, they saved all of East Blue.

WHOA, Vivi now has her own wanted poster in the middle of the show picture! Awesome! So I guess she is kind of a crew member now!

They are off now. Vivi says Baroque Works has 2000 employees or so. Uh oh.

THERE IS ALREADY A HUNTER ON THE SHIP! Vivi seems to know her! She is the one who killed Mr. 8. She is Miss All-Sunday. THE BOSS'S PARTNER. WTF ALREADY?!?! WOW.

Geez I thought they would work their way up the ladder a bit! Mr. 0's partner already.

She seems to have a devil's fruit ability. She seems to be able to control objects and move them around, she takes Luffy's hat for example. She doesn't seem to want to fight though. She says they will die at the next island they are headed to, Little Garden.

For some reason, she gives them an Eternal Log Pose, that will point them straight to an island right next to Alabasta. Nami seems pleased, but Luffy crushes it, he says he decides where this ship goes. All-Sunday wants to meet again if they survive.

And they are off!

Overall: Yess <3 this arc. Another fun episode with some good plot progression, and they now have an extra goal and an extra crew member, which is also awesome. I'm slowly beginning to like this show more and more as it expands.


NARUTO EPISODE 67: LATE FOR THE SHOW, BUT READY TO GO! THE ULTIMATE SECRET TECHNIQUE IS BORN!

Kakashi tells Naruto to relax. There was a reason they were so late... hmmm.

Gaara is doing his technique, a 3rd eye has appeared outside the ball. SASUKE ATTACKS! It can't penetrate the sand. Sasuke wants to "get ready" for something, he unbuckles his armstrap. Is he gonna do a move like Rock's?

Outside, we see a ton of sound and sand village ninjas.

Sasuke slides upwards near the top of the stadium.

Shino overhears Temari and that guy talking about a plan.

Lightning is showing up from Sasuke's hands. He runs at Gaara and punches through the sand shield! It's called Lightning Blade, it is the only move Kakashi didn't copy from someone else.

The sound/sand villages are ready to go at any second. Yeah, I don't think we are getting a round 2, no wonder they did so many big matches in the prelims and in round 1, and no wonder all the potential finals looked like crap >_>.

Sasuke has grabbed Gaara through the sand, he is bleeding? Wow. He starts screaming. IT'S MY BLOOOOOD! IT'S MY BLOOOOD! LOL what a baby!

Sasuke now gets his hand out and backs off. The sand village people think the sand spirit might be taking over...

Gaara now releases his sand shield. He is bleeding from his shoulder. Sasuke says something is different...

Huh, a sleep jutsu thing now has taken over the stadium. Kabuto has made his move apparently. The sand and leaf village Hokages stare at each other. THE SOUND VILLAGE AND SAND VILLAGE NINJAS ARE NOW ATTACKING!!! OMG.

Overall: Things are getting interesting. So, as the tournament ends I was 3/3 on predictions AWWW YEAH. As much as I would have liked to see a full tournament, I can't really complain about this new direction as it has a lot of potential. This episode itself wasn't bad, but had a lot of waiting around, so it wasn't as good as past tourney eps, and wasn't as good as the last episode.



Naruto vs. One Piece: Both shows continue to be very good, but One Piece has been pure awesome this arc. Naruto had a bit of a time-wasting feel, while One Piece had a lot of plot progression. One Piece takes it.

One Piece: 25


Episode 68[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 68: TRY HARD, KOBY! DIARY OF KOBY-MEPPO'S MARINE STRUGGLES

Oooo, this could actually be pretty interesting! I guess this is what you guys mean by every character is important/shows up again.

LOL I love the chocobo. Please make him a permanent character >_>. Luffy wants to use him as fish bait.

They are talking about foes Luffy has beaten. And Luffy wonders what happened with Coby. THE CHOCOBO IS THE GREATEST CHARACTER IN ONE PIECE.

Wow! Coby is a lieutenant. He seems to be decorated. Thats awesome.

Coby is commanding some ships. Oh, Coby is actually just a private doing oddjobs >_>. He was dreaming. He is very devoted though!

Coby is working with the son of Axe-hand Morgan, who hates his life since he can't do whatever he wants now.

Coby is now aboard a ship, this ship is going to be escorting Morgan to marine headquarters for a court martial. Oh boy.

As they are sailing, they run across Vice Admiral Garp. A hero of the seas. Garp is going to take Morgan into custody. MORGAN ATTACKS HIM! He takes his son hostage. He sails off with his son. The marines are going to fire at him. Coby stands in the way! He says he will catch Morgan. He jumps into the sea and swims after him.

Meanwhile, Morgan's son is disobeying Morgan, he saw what Coby did for him. He was deeply moved. Morgan's son is getting his ass kicked when... Coby appeats!

Coby is placing Morgan under arrest, Garp is watching all this. Coby is fighting but getting his ass kicked. Morgan throws both of them into the sea. Back at the ship, Garp decides he is going to take Coby and Morgan's son with him to Marine headquarters. Are they going to become actual fighting marines now? I guess HQ is at the Grand Line.

Overall: This wasn't a boring episode, but it wasn't that exciting either. Although it was cool to see how Coby is doing. It was an "OK" episode.


NARUTO EPISODE 68: ZERO HOUR! THE DESTRUCTION OF THE HIDDEN LEAF VILLAGE BEGINS!

We see some epic fighting. And the sand hokage puts a kunai to the leaf hokage's throat. WTF what a noob.

The sound ninjas place a barrier around the hokages. Black Ops just got owned.

Now a bunch of ninja confront Guy and Kakashi.

Outside, we see some sand ninjas doing something weird, are they summoning something? Yeah they are, it's some giant snake thing. OMG are we gonna see the toad vs. that? Some guys try to stop the snake, but they aren't strong enough. Leaf village guys are getting pwned.

We see Gaara and Sasuke now. Gaara is out of chakra, they need him for the operation for some reason. No we see some sand ninja dying, they are complaining about no Gaara. He is their trump card. Temari and Kankuro are going to tend to Gaara's wounds while he regains chakra.

The jounin in charge of Gaara is about to take on the proctor of the exam. Sasuke runs after Gaara. We also see Shino on the side watching.

WHAT! THE SAND HOKAGE WAS OROCHIMARU!!! Also, the leaf village hokage was the one who trained him?

We now get some history of Orochimaru. He wanted to be the fourth hokagem, but his request was denied.

YES KAKASHI IN ACTION! HE IS PWNING NOOBS!!! HELL YEAH!!!

GUY OWNS SOME NOOBS TOO!!! YESSS!

Orochi now walks away from the Hokage. Hmmm.

Kakashi wants Sakura to wake Naruto and Shikamaru up with some jutsu. He wants Naruto to do some mission. An A-Ranked mission!

Overall: YESSS things are getting good! Things are going into motion, and this was a pretty intense episode, plus it made me interested for the next one. Good stuff.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Not too hard of a decision here. One Piece has been getting good, but they decided to focus on Coby, which isn't as interesting as Luffy's journeys through the Grand Line. Naruto is picking up, and I'm beginning to think that this attack will end up being more exciting that a full Chunin tournament. Also THE ONE PIECE CHOCOBO IS GOD!!!

Naruto: 43

One Piece: 25

Episode 69[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 69: KOBY-MEPPO'S DETERMINATION! VICE ADMIRAL GARP'S FATHERLY PRIDE

It'll be interesting to see if One Piece can be a bit more interesting this time. More Garp and more Coby progress makes me think this one will be better, based on the episode title.

Luffy and crew seem to see Little Garden. They are getting closer!

Nami is reading the newspaper, THE DUCK IS EATING IN THE BACKGROUND HE IS SO AWESOME! Nami seems to stare at Vivi while reading the newspaper, FORESHADOWING OF AN INCOMING PLOT TWIST. Luffy also sees Coby in the newspaper crying from the ship! The paper says Garp has arrived at Marine HQ. So Coby is now also at the grand line!

Coby and Helmeppo watch the Marines here train, and are a little intimidated. OK, a lot intimidated.

Garp shows up, Coby says they will endure anything he throws at them. He has some dude watching them.

They have just been doing chores as usual. Coby and Helmeppo decide to start training on their own in addition to all the chores they do.

Garp later overhears Coby saying he is friends with Luffy. He asks if Coby wants to be a marine, he tells him to attack. They get their asses handed to them several times, but they still aren't done! Coby proclaims he will be a marine officer, they attack and land a punch on Garp!

After the fight, Garp kind of praises them, but also says they are nowhere near ready. He also says he will be overseeing the Luffy situation, hmmm.

From there, they go back to training, Garp looks on and smiles.

Back at the Going Merry, we see Nami putting away the newspaper from before, while looking at Vivi.

Overall: Better than the last episode for sure. Overall it still wasn't nearly as interesting as Luffy's stuff, but Garp was cool, and so was Coby and Helmeppo developing. Decent episode.


NARUTO EPISODE 69: VILLAGE IN DISTRESS: A NEW A-RANKED MISSION!

It sounds like Kakashi's mission for Naruto and crew is going to be to help Sasuke.

Kakashi summons a PUPPY!!! A TALKING PUPPY!!! HE WILL SNIFF OUT SASUKE WITH THE CREW! YES YES YES! THIS MAY BE COOLER THAN THE ONE PIECE CHOCOBO! (Ok thats unlikely).

Sakura releases Naruto... Shikamaru was awake though! He was faking asleep so he wouldn't have to fight XDXDXD. The dog bites his hand >_>.

The mission is to find Sasuke, stop him, then go to a safe location and wait for further orders. Kakashi tells Guy they will be OK as long as they are with the dog. Shino heard all of this and now disappears.

The third Hokage and Orochimaru attack... Hokage uses some tile jutsu to attack with the tiles, misses, Orochimaru bites Hokage with his snake tongue. Substitution jutsu! Hokage is behind Orochimaru!

Hokage uses fire and earth styles to attack Orochimaru, he seems to have hit the mark. Orochimaru was just acting like he was hit though. The hokage knew this.

Kabuto knows what Naruto is up to. The sound village guys dont think it matters. But Kabuto says not to underestimate the enemy. He takes out his stats card on Naruto.

The Hokage and Orochimaru decide to stop playing around... HOKAGE'S ROBES COME OFF! HE HAS BADASS NINJA GEAR ON!!! OMG NO WAY! SO COOL!

Hokage and Orochi are POWERING UP! Hokage runs in, so does Orochimaru! Orochi is doing a summoning jutsu... He summons two ninjas of some sort.

Whoa, he summoned TWO OF THE HOKAGE WITH A REANIMATION JUTSU?!? He tried to summon all 3, but the 3rd hokage stopped that one. He is going to have to fight 2 of the other hokage? Wow.

Some sound village ninjas are after Naruto...

Overall: So, imagine if Sakura dies in the coming battle, and the new squad was Sasuke-Naruto-Shikamaru. INSTANT WIN BABY. Anyway, things are getting pretty intense. I was disappointed at the lack of Naruto, but oh well. This was still another good episode. The Chunin exams >>> Land of the Waves arc, clearly.


Naruto vs. One Piece: I thought maybe One Piece would start coming back this saga, since Whiskey Peak was pretty sweet. But instead, during the journey to Little Garden, they decided to focus on Coby. It has been pretty good of course, but just not on the level of Naruto. Coby seems to be done for now, so things might start getting interesting again next episode.

Naruto: 44

One Piece: 25


Episode 70[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 70: PREHISTORIC ISLAND! THE SHADOW LURKING IN LITTLE GARDEN!

Question: Is the Alabasta arc considered the best one so far? How about overall?

So, title implies little garden has a dinosaur gimmick, Luffy vs. Dinosaurs? Hmm, doesn't sound that great tbh.

CARUE LEARNS TO DRINK FROM A STRAW! YESYESYESYES!!! HE GETS DRUNK! CARUE PASSES OUT! YES I LOVE CARUE!!!

They see a dolphin thats the size of a whale, wtf. They go into action to sail away. Vivi is amazed that they actually know what they are doingm despite the fact that they seem to screw around a lot.

They have reached Little Garden, the second island of Grand Line for them!!

On the island we see Mr. 3! They seem to just be relaxing though. Oh, they have orders from the boss to take out Luffy and crew.

Luffy and crew's ship is on a river in the island, and they think the jungle is scary. Theres lots of giant creatures all over the place. The new plan is to just stay on the boat, and wait for the Log Pose to set. However, Luffy wants to go on an adventure, lol >_>. Vivi wants to go too!

Vivi says she'll be OK because she'll have Carue with her... CARUE FREAKS OUT LOL. YES CARUE YES!!!!

Luffy, Carue and Vivi are now off on an adventure!!!

Zoro is also going out, "to take a walk". Sanji asks him to kill something edible, Zoro implies he is stronger than Sanji. So, now they are going to have a hunting contest. This leaves Usopp and Nami alone on the ship.

Sanji runs across a DINOSAUR. He kills it easily! Zoro also runs across one it seems.

Luffy and Vivi run across a dinosaur! Vivi says this island is still in the age of the dinosaurs. She says all the islands on the grand line are isolated. Some have very advanced civilizations, others have been abandoned, like this one.

We see... a giant man of some sort walking? It's headed for the ship!

Overall: Pretty good episode. It's fun exploring new islands on the grand line I'd say. It's not super interesting so far, but, like I said, fun.


NARUTO EPISODE 70: A SHIRKER'S CALL TO ACTION: A LAYABOUT NO MORE!

The dog tells them that 2 squads are following them, wooo sense of smell.

They walk back in their tracks to throw off the sound ninja, but it doesn't seem to work that well. The dog knows they are back on the trail.

Naruto says they don't have much choice, they have to set an ambush. The dog says that won't work, they are all probably jounin level. Sakura doesn't think it matters, but Shikamaru explains that there's no way for the crew to pull off an ambush on jounins. Shikamaru says there is only one thing they can do. A fake ambush. One of them will be a decoy. However, the decoy will probably die according to Shikamaru.

Naruto is going to volunteer to be the decoy, but Shikamaru says he can do it. He thinks he is the only one who can survive this.

The sound ninja are closing in. Sakura wonders if Shikamaru abandoned them...

We see Shika waiting. They see some more footprints... SHADOW POSSESSION, SHIKAMARU THEME!!! He used some stuff to use the paw prints! Waot, they are ALL under shadow possession, whoa.

Shikamaru is getting tired... he counts how many ninja there are... 8! The dog said there were 9 earlier! The other one is in the back to prevent ambushes...

SHIKAMARU THEME

He throws some Shuriken at all the ninja to draw out the 9th one, and it works. He can't possess him though, he doesn't have enough chakra!!!

The leader of the sound ninja guys know he is almost out of chakra. Shikamaru talks about how he wanted to live his life. He wanted to be just an average ninja, he isn't sure why he decided to exert himself here.

Shika releases Shadow possession. He is ready to die!! HIS SENSEI APPEARS INSTEAD!!! YEAH BABY! BADASS! HE USES BRASS KNUCKLE THINGS! HE TAKES OUT 1, 2! HE GETS ATTACKED, SUBSTITUTION, HE TAKES OUT 2 MORE!! WOWOWOW! AND ANOTHER!! HE JUST OWNED ALL OF THEM!!! I guess he had just caught up at the right moment.

Overall: WOW! Shikamaru was SO badass, and THEN HIS SENSEI COMING OUT WAS SO COOL! THAT WAS AWESOME! I think the music really made this episode honestly, the music was PERFECT for all the big scenes.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Another consistent/solid one piece episode, as usual. Naruto was FREAKING AWESOME though. yesss Shikamaru! And Naruto takes a 20 episode lead.

Naruto: 45

One Piece: 25


Episode 71[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 71: HUMONGOUS BATTLE! THE GIANTS DORRY AND BROGY! The giant... starts talking to Usopp and Nami! He wants some ale! He's a friendly giant I guess? He is Brogy, the fiercest warrior on the island. He kills a dinosaur and wants them to join him for a meal! Haha, this guy is cool!

Luffy is on one of the dinosaurs heads. He wants to ride it! Awesome!

Uhh crap, now bigger dinos appear, they must be the adult dinos. They are way more vicious. Luffy dodges their attacks, and it having a great time >_>.

Luffy gets EATEN by one of them. Geeez. A giant kills the dino though by cutting him in half, which frees Luffy.

This giant was watching and enjoyed watching Luffy mess with the dinos. This is dorry, most mighty giant in the land! CARUE IS FREAKING OUT!!

The giant is gonna take them to their place!

Nami and Usopp are playing dead at Brogy's place. They think they will get eaten, which is ridiculous since this guy seems to eat dino meat to fill himself up >_>. Nami and Usopp run the hell away, lawl. Then they run into a sabre tooth tiger, now a dinosaur, they keep running away <_<.

The giant is back now to save them! I guess they kinda realize he is a friendly giant now? They are too scared to eat the dino meat. Oh, they think he is fattening them up before he eats them >_>. The giant tells them it takes one year for the log to set on this island? WTF I don't buy it.

LOL Luffy is having a great time eating and laughing it up with the other giant!

Luffy asks why the giant is living alone. He says there is a village out in the grand line called Elbaf, it must be all giants. He is here because this is how fights happen in Elbaf. They are isolated until one of them die. He has been here 100 years and not yet settled his duel with the other giant, who must be Brogy.

Sanji and Zoro bring back two huge dinos. They argue about which one has more meat. It looks like a tie.

A volcano just erupted. Dorry and Brogy both say they must be going. Thats the signal for battle. They both attack each other, SWORD/AXE CLASH!

Huh? Mr. 5 is on the island. He is visiting Mr. 3. Looks like Mr. 3 is on Little Garden after all.

Mr. 3 wants to collect the bounty on the giants. Apparently each of them is worth $100,000,000. They used to be giant pirates it seems. So, Mr. 5 and Mr 3's team will be working together for this.

Overall: This is a pretty cool mini-arc. I like how Luffy and crew are just exploring new islands and they are all crazy. It kinda reminds me of that one animatrix episode, where the kids are just fooling around in the matrix. Anyway, good ep once again, giants rule!


NARUTO EPISODE 71: AN URIVALED MATCH: HOKAGE BATTLE ROYALE!

Temari sets some traps for Sasuke. They blow up as he gets near them. He barely avoids getting pwned by them.

The third hokage is getting ready to fight the 1st and 2nd hokage.

The bad hokages attack. Third hokage dodges some attacks early on. He actually wins the first encounter, FIRE BOMBS BY THE HOKAGE... they don't seem to work. One of the hokages uses water style to stop the attack.

Now a bad hokage attacks with a water jutsu, the third hokage blocks it with a mud wall. Now one of the hokage closes in with water style shield in front of him. The third hokage's fire attacks don't work. The third hokage gets nailed by kicks and punches, and is down. Some pretty sweet animation there.

Now the third hokage gets grabbed and is pulled underwater. He has to deal with 2 at once. He seems to barely escape. He makes it to his mud wall, which gets destroyed by more water attacks.

Now the first hokage uses his hidden technique. Forest creation. The third hokage is grabbed by a bunch of branches. Orochimaru says it's over.

3rd Hokage now uses a summoning jutsu. Hmm? A monkey king? Haha awesome.

THE MONKEY BASHES THE HELL OUT OF BOTH HOKAGE! TRANSFORM! He is now a weapon, staff thing. He frees Hokage! BADASS! Man, summoning animals is always badass.

Orochimaru uses his snaketongue to give himself a powerful sword. The third Hokage gets ready to attack with his monkey staff.

Orochi blocks Hokage's attacks, more awesome animation here.

The third hokage gets attacked from behind, now he is getting nailed, he is kicked to the ground. The anbu black op guy said hokage doesn't have the energy to use shadow clones plus his other moves. He has gotten old.

The monkey king asks what the hokage is waiting for. The third hokage sheds a tear now ATTACKS! Now the Monkey grabs his throat! THE MONKEY KING IS GOING TO KILL HIM!!! IT WAS A MUD CLONE! Orochi gets kicked again!

Third hokage now takes ut the 1st and 2nd hokage with explosion things. Badass!

The hokage's body parts regenerate though. Well that sucks.

The third hokage says he must use the 4th hokage's jutsu. It is his last resort.

Huh? Orochimaru now takes off some mask. It's a woman? This is some forbidden jutsu. I'm confused.

Sasuke has caught up with Temari and Kankuro!

Overall: The hokage battle is different from any Naruto battle so far. I'm liking it, some awesome animation there too. It has been more of a jutsu battle than hand to hand combat. I'm looking forward to the next one


Naruto vs. One Piece: Naruto is just unstoppable right now, there's not much else I can say. I do have to say that, overall I'm just pleased that both shows have been so consistently good lately, and I'm glad to be watching both.

Episode 72[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 72: LUFFY'S ANGER! A DIRTY TRICK IN A SACRED BATTLE

The giants are going at it all epic like. Everyone is in awe of the battle. Usopp says it is a true man's fight. These 2 are what Usopp is striving to be.

Both giants lose their weapons and now go hand to hand. They both nail big blows. They have fought over 73,000 times! And now they both fall to the ground. It looks like it will be yet another draw?

They both start laughing. Now they are talking like friends! Hahaha! They exchange ale.

Dorry confirms that it takes a year for the log to set. Vivi freaks out and says thats way too long. Luffy asks for a better way. Dorry says the winner of the giant battle will get an eternal log pose to Elbaf. He asks if Luffy wants to challenge them, but Luffy just wants to go to the next island.

Dorry says maybe they can set out without using the log pose. Luffy says it's a great idea and they laugh together some more. Vivi doesn't understand how they can laugh like that.

Meanwhile, Usopp is talking to Brogy, he wants to be just like him.

Now... Dorry gets attacked! The beer he drank exploded in his stomach. He says the only possible suspect is Luffy. Luffy tells Vivi to run away (Carue already did, LOLOL). He is going to fight Dorry.

Dorry attacks, and Luffy dodges. He rums up his sword... attacks, gets blocked by the shield! Luffy dodges another attack, and now rockets himself into Dorry's stomach! OH SNAP! ON THE WAY DOWN DORRY STOMPS ON LUFFY!

Now Dorry falls over. Luffy is OK of course.

Luffy knows someone else is here, none of his crew would have done this.

Now we see Mr. 3. His plan was not to kill Dorry. He just wanted to weaken him. Dorry is screwed the next time he has a battle, so thats the plan.

Mr.3's plan is to divide and conquer Luffy's crew. Hmmm.

Now the mountain goes off. UH OH. It's going to be duel time.

God Brogy's laugh is awesome.

Dorry is going to fight, despite his wounds.

Overall: Pretty cool episode, the giants are still awesome. And Mr. 3's plan is interesting. Good stuff.


NARUTO EPISODE 72: A MISTAKE FROM THE PAST: A FACE REVEALED!

Temari is going to fight Sasuke, while Kankuro takes Gaara away.

Temari's chakra is almost gone, she says she is in trouble. She uses her wind to block some early attacks, and go on the offensive.

Sasuke uses fire style, she dodges... wait, now she is trapped by the fire? Sasuke goes for a fireball to finish her, doesn't work. Sasuke trips on some sand, he takes some kunai to the chest! Substitution, duh. Also, he placed some bomb on the log, this blows Temari away. Sasuke now runs off. Temari hopes she held him off long enough.

Now we are getting some Orochimaru flashback where the third hokage realized he was a BAD GUY. Orochimaru wants to learn all the jutsus, and invent new ones. So he has been killing people to help or something. Orochimaru wants immortality, so he can accomplish his goals.

So, he has made the immortality jutsu. You find a young body and make it your own, so thats who this woman is. He plans on using Sasuke as his next body!!! It all makes sense!

The first hokage does his jutsu again. The whole battlefield is filled with branches. He is safe though it seems. The monkey king seems to have protected him.

Now we get a flashback of the third hokage passing up his chance to kill Orochimaru a while back.

BUT NOW HE IS READY TO FIGHT! SHADOW CLONE JUTSU! The black ops guys say he is going to blow all his chakra. HE IS DOING SOMETHING SWEET. HE IS DOING THE FOURTH HOKAGE'S JUTSU! THE REAPER!

Hokage is blocking attacks from Orochimaru. He tells orochimaru that everyone who lives here is precious to him. Thats why he must protect them. The hokage is about to use the reaper!

Overall: I like learning more about the third hokage. It's kinda cool. However, the Sasuke-Temari encounter kinda sucked. Then the flashbacks were kinda meh. The end was badass though, OK episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece: One Piece has been incredibly consistent since the Grand Line started. And it finally pays off, as Naruto finally had a slightly weaker episode. OP takes this one pretty easy.

Episode 73[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 73: BROGY WAILS IN VICTORY! ELBAF'S JUDGEMENT

Brogy's laugh- GOBABABABABABA. HABABABABABA

Dorry unearths a GIANT rock. He places it on Luffy, so Luffy is trapped. I guess so he won't interfere. He apologizes to Luffy for doubting him. He says this is Elbaf's judgement.

Luffy is pissed! He says this isn't a fair duel. Luffy says this is stupid. Vivi finds it strange that Luffy cares so much. She doesn't think Luffy seems like a villain with a big bounty on his head.

Meanwhile, Brogy is ready to fight. USOPP LAUGHS LIKE HIM NOW LOL!!!

Usopp and Nami are gonna go to where Luffy and Vivi are. Meanwhile, the fight begins. Dorry is losing.

VIVI NOTICES CARUE IS MISSING. HOW DID I NOT REALIZE THIS OMGOMG. CARUE WAS STILL RUNNING AWAY HE'S IN THE JUNGLE. HE RUNS INTO MR. 5. NOOOOOO. CARUE FREAKS OUT! They want Carue to do something. NO CARUE! RUN AWAY.

Zoro runs into someone who looks like Nami. Nami runs into someone who looks like Luffy. Hmmm? Oh and Usopp is lost on his own. lawl.

Usopp finds Luffy and Vivi. He thinks Nami was eaten by a dinosaur.

Vivi thinks this is Baroque Works doing this. Usopp is pissed that the giant fight was messed with.

Dorry is still hanging in there. Mr. 3 now uses some goo substance, which I guess is his POWA, to make Dorry slip. That bastard! Brogy lands a blow on Dorry. Blood flies in the air.

LUFFY IS PISSED. HE IS BANGING HIS HEAD AGAINST THE GROUND!! WHO WAS IT?!?! SHOW YOURSELF!!!!

Mr. 3 laughs at Brogy. Brogy is now stuck in that weird gel stuff, he can't move.

Mr. 5 shows himself to Vivi and Luffy and crew. THEY THROW THEM CARUE! CARUE IS DOWN! NOOOO. NOOOOOOOOOO CARUE! CARUUUUUUUUUUUUUE. NOOOOOOOOOOO.

They tried to make Carue call for his master so they could capture Vivi, but CARUE REFUSED! CARUE WAS SO SCARED BUT HE REFUSED! WHAT A BRAVE CHOCOBO! I LOVE YOU CARUE!

Vivi and Usopp are pissed and ready to fight. I forgot that Vivi can fight. They both lose pretty easily.

We learn that Mr. 3 can create Wax, and control people with it.

Overall: Phew, lots happened there! They did a great job at making you hate the hell out of Mr. 3 for what he has done. Things look bad for the crew, and I'm interested to see how things go! Good episode.


NARUTO EPISODE 73: FORBIDDEN SECRET TECHNIQUE: REAPER DEATH SEAL!

Orochimaru has never seen this jutsu I guess. Orochimaru attacks Hokage with some kunai, waiting for the jutsu.

Some weird **** is happening with that reaper the hokage summoned. I have no idea what is going on. The hokage is coughing up some blood, but now he says it is done. The shadow clones run toward Orochimaru, one of them grabs Orochimaru. Well, it's really black so I can't see who he grabbed. He now summons the reaper or whatever. They both have the other hokages grabbed actually. This jutsu kills the 2 hokage, it seals them inside of him I guess? Oh, this must be what the hokage did with Naruto kind of. Except the third hokage took their spirits into himself instead of putting it into a baby.

EPIC MUSIC NOW PLAYS! STAFF STRIKES! OROCHI DODGES! HE HITS HIS SWORD AWAY! SNAKES BLOCK THE ATTACK! WAIT! HE GRABS OROCHI IN THE PROCCESS! OMGOMGOMG HE IS GONNA USE THE DEATH SEAL ON HIM! IT'S IN! THE SEAL IS IN! YES YES YES! KILL HIM! KILL HIM! SWEET MUSIC! OROCHI IS SUMMONING HIS SWORD TO STRIKE THE HOKAGE! WHO WILL DIE FIRST?

That giant snake is wreaking havoc. TOAD POWER! IT MUST BE JIRAIYA! THE TOAD TOOK OUT THE SNAKE! Or, one of them. Theres 2 more.

Meanwhile the sword is coming for the hokage... THE MONKEY GRABBED IT, WHAT. IT LOOKS LIKE IT CUT THROUGH HIS BODY ANYWAY! HOKAGE DIDN'T DODGE IT. WHAT. THE PERSON WHO CASTS THIS JUTSU WILL DIE. HOKAGE IS GONNA DIE. OMG NOOOOO.

WHAT, OROCHI IS MAKING THE SWORD GO DEEPER INTO THE HOKAGE, HIS GRIP INTO OROCHI'S SOUL IS WEAKENING.

Sasuke has caught up with Kankuro! Now Temari is here!

Naruto and crew are still on the chase as well. The dog says theres something else out there too. It doesn't smell human...

Kankuro tells Temari to run with Gaara. Kankuro will fight Sasuke.

SHINO IS HERE! WHOA! HE WANTS TO FIGHT KANKURO! He used his BUGZZZ to find Sasuke. Shino wants his match from the tourney with Kankuro! Sasuke is going to go after Gaara.

Is Shino's english VA = Ishida VA?

Overall: Intense episode, the fight with the Hokage and Orochimaru was pretty solid. I'm excited for Shino to fight as well, good ep.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Geeez this is getting tough. Naruto is staying great, but I feel like OP just gets better and better. Naruto barely takes this one, as Orochi vs. Hokage is intense, and there's some other cool stuff happening, but I feel like OP is close to surpassing Naruto in terms of consistent episode quality.

Episode 74[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 74: THE DEVIL'S CANDLE! TEARS OF REGRET AND TEARS OF ANGER

While this has been a good arc, I'm not really looking forward to this Mr. 3 arc that much honestly. I'm not sure if they can make that compelling of a fight with his power... I am interested to see if Luffy struggles much though considering he probably still has to fight mr. 2, 1 and 0.

Brogy falls over next to Dorry. He is covered in wax. I feel like with this power he probably could have took on both giants pretty easily, with how easily he took out Brogy, without the drawn out stuff >_>.

Mr. 5 says they already caught Zoro and Nami, so they are screwed. Sanji is still out there then! Mr. 5 kicks luffy, which is making bombs explode right next to his face. Luffy is down. They grab Vivi and walk away.

Mr. 5 brings Vivi to Mr. 3. Mr. 3 candle locks her. Now Mr. 3 seems to create a giant tower of candle wax. It looks like a giant birthday cake or something, but it's made of wax. Now Nami and Zoro, who are candlelock'd up, are brought to mr. 3.

Mr. 3 is basically going to do something that turns them into wax figures, human wax figures.

Brogy now says he knew Dorry was injured. HE'S GETTING PISSED! HE IS SUPER PISSED! GIANT STRENGTH! THE WAX BREAKS! Mr. 5 uses a bomb on Brogy, now he uses more bombs, and Brogy falls. Damn.

Luffy and Usopp are down. They are angry as hell. CARUE IS UP! OMG! HE IS DIGGING LUFFY FREE! HE IS MAD TOO! YOU RULE CARUE!!!

Zoro and crew are already getting covered in wax. Zoro asks him if he wants to kill these guys with him. He is going to cut off his own legs! Brogy likes Zoro!

LUFFY, CARUE AND USOPP NOW ARRIVE! THEY ARE SUPER PISSED! YEAH CARUE! YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!!

LOL, Zoro had only cut through half his leg, so he's OK >___>. Man, does he do ALL of his fights injured?

CARUE IS READY TO FIGHT! Oh, so are Luffy and Usopp.

Overall: Nice episode. Some intense moments. Some badass moments, and I liked the end. Good stuff!


NARUTO EPISODE 74: ASTONISHING TRUTH! GAARA'S IDENTITY EMERGES!

Naruto and crew are going to go around the Shino fight, which will take extra time, to find Sasuke.

Kankuro has his puppet out, Shino has his BUGZ.

Gaara is awake. They stop. GAARA HITS TEMARI! He says he doesn't need her. Well, actually you did need her you stupid makeup wearing piece of ****.

Sasuke is now caught up with Gaara.

Shino dodges some puppet attacks early on.

Sasuke wants to see what Gaara really is. Temari says it is going to be let out any second. Gaara is screaming like a lunatic.

Shino hits the puppet with some kunai, SUBSTITUTION! The new one attacks Shino, it hits him! BUG SUBSTITUTION? lol. SHINO ATTACKS! Kankuro barely dodges.

Now the puppet attacks with a poison smoke bomb, Shino gets out of the way. But now he is down. He inhaled some.

Back to the Hokage-Orochimaru fight. Hokage can't finish off Orochimaru. He grabs his soul again, it's a back and forth fight.

Gaara turns into a weird sand monster type thing, though half of his human form is still visible. He attacks, Sasuke thinks this is going to be a super tough fight.

Kankuro is going to finish off Shino... ANOTHER BUG CLONE! Kankuro doesn't believe it. Now, Kankuro can't move his puppet. Shino infested the puppet with his bugs! Now they are following the chakra strings Kankuro uses, so Kankuro cuts off his ties with the strings.

Kankuro blows off the head of his puppet, now he is controlling that head to attack Shino! Kankuro says Shino is finished, as he doesn't realize he can do this. The puppet stops right before hitting Shino! Kankuro has beetles on him! The beetles got him from behind! Earlier when Shino attacked, he placed a female beetle on his headband.

Shino is now down from the poison.

Overall: Several fights in this one. They were all OK. The Shino fight was the main one, but fighting with bugs isn't that exciting >_>. But still, good episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Not too hard of a decision this time really, OP remains very strong, while Naruto fell off a bit this time around. I feel like OP could win the next few episodes too, since I don't find the Sasuke-Gaara fight to be that interesting with Gaara in his other form.

Naruto: 47

Episode 75[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 75: LUFFY ATTACKED BY MAGIC! COLORS TRAP

Zoro is doing an epixx pose, he wants to be like that if he is a statue >_>. Vivi doesn't understand how they are so relaxed. Mr. 3 is pissed that they are relaxed. It's because Luffy is here duh!

USOPP IS RIDING CARUE! Looks like they will battle together yesyesyes! Oh wait, they run away >_>. They say they have his back.

Luffy gets candlelock'd. DESPITE BEING CANDLELOCK'D, LUFFY DODGES ANOTHER CANDLELOCK. He swings around Brogy's horn, HAMMER TIME! He destroys the pillar!

Also, the candlelock broke off while doing this.

Nami now says her body is hardening faster. Luffy's attack just made the process quicken. Luffy is gonna destroy it for good. But Mr. 3 attacks so Luffy is forced to dodge. Meanwhile, USOPP ATTACKS MR. 3. Mr. 5 EATS the bullet, and it explodes inside of him. Damn.

CARUE IS FREAKING OUT!

Luffy tries again, he uses bazooka, but the candle thing stops him. Another Candlelock, IT HITS ONLY ONE OF LUFFY'S HANDS. HE IS HAPPY THAT HE HAS A HAMMER ARM NOW! HIS ARM IS SUPER POWERFUL! He destroys Mr. 3's defenses, and NAILS A PUNCH! MR. 3 is down! LOL USOPP AND CARUE CELEBRATE!

WHAT. Luffy now says he doesn't want to save Zoro and crew. It looks like this is Miss Goldenweek's doing?

Usopp and Carue are now confronted by Mr. 5 and valentine! Mr. 5 attacks, CARUEEE AND USOPP GO FLYING! THEY HAVE TO RETREAT! USOPP IS RIDING CARUE!!! YEAH CARUE! HE'S SO FAST! OH, CARUE IS RUNNING WITHOUT USOPP LMAO.

Goldenweek can influence people's minds with paint. Vivi tells Luffy she doesn't want to be saved. This causes Luffy to try to save them, but now goldenweek paints some yellow crap on him that makes him just laugh. Sigh.

USOPP AND CARUE WHO ARE RUNNING, RUN INTO LUFFY! THE PAINT SMEARS.

Now she uses some red paint. It makes it so he can only attack that red mark. Man, this is the worst devil's fruit ever.

Mr. 5 is still after Usopp and Carue. They are super fast.

Usopp's plan is to go back to Luffy and do something about that paint. Where the fuck is Sanji BTW?

When they get back, everyone is turned into wax completely. "oh".

Overall: I really hate Miss Goldenweek's power, it's so lame and unexciting. There were some good moments here, and a good mini-fight, but then I feel like Goldenweek brought things down at the end. "OK" episode.


NARUTO EPISODE 75: SASUKE'S DECISION: PUSHED TO THE EDGE!

Sasuke attacks, gets nailed by an attack, SUBSTITUTION!

He attacks, the sand form takes all the attacks and is unaffected. Erm, uh oh.

He sends them back at Sasuke, another clone.

Gaara flashback of little kids running away from him as a child when he tried to help them. "lol". Oh, so he then tried to kill them for running from him? Someone blocks the attack, it looks like they were nice to Gaara.

Lame flashback of Gaara talking to Sasuke about how they are the same, they have both experienced true loneliness "lol".

Sasuke remembers his brother letting him live and gets pissed. HE IS POWERING UP! YEAH HERE WE GO!

Back to Orochimaru-Hokage. It's still at the same point essentially.

Epic music playing, SASUKE AND GAARA GO AT EACH OTHER! YES! LIGHTNING STRIKE VS. SPIRIT... SASUKE GOES THROUGH HIM! GAARA IS DOWN! YESYESYES!!!

Gaara is back up. He thinks this is exhilirating.

Now Gaara has like a sand spirit tail grow out of him. He is now even faster. Sasuke barely dodges. Gaara uses his sand spirit thing to block a fire jutsu, he gets nailed and hits a tree. The only thing that will work against him is that lightning punch.

Another flashback, he only has 2 shots of the lightning per day. He asks what would happen if he went for more, Kakashi says it would not work, plus he could die.

Sasuke powers up his lightning, THEY GO AT EACH OTHER... they clash in mid air. They both land on their feet. Gaara's sand spirit form sheds. Sasuke falls over. The curse mark is getting to him again "lawl". He can't move his body. GAARA ATTACKS.

YES YES YES! YES YES YESSSSSSS! YES YEYSYEEYSYEYYES!

NARUTO SAVES THE MOTHA FUCKING DAY! HE KICKS GAARA AWAY! YES! NOW THIS IS A MATCHUP I'M INTERESTED IN! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! SCREW YOU SASUKE GO DIE! O NARUTO! GO NARUTO!!!!!

Overall: There were a few good moments here, mainly Sasuke's first lightning attack. Just like I thought, this fight wasn't that interesting. NARUTO was an awesome ending though. Thank god.


Naruto vs. One Piece: As much as I disliked Miss Goldenweek's power, there's no real denying OP was way better here. Before Miss Goldenweek there were a lot of great moments. Meanwhile, Naruto had a not very compelling fight against 2 characters I don't really like. OP keeps getting better and better, it may be able to comeback before Naruto's filler starts! But it may have some problems against a Naruto fight, since those are generally the best fights.

Episode 76[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 76: CRITICAL COUNTERATTACK! USOPP'S QUICK WIT AND KAENBOSHI!

2 episodes till new rankings! Woooo!?!

They seem to be doing a recap from the beginning, right as the arc is close to an end. Lawl?

We end up with 3 minutes of recap. I guess thats not too terrible.

Mr. 5 is here, he shoots some gun... USOPP FIRES A SHOT AT LUFFY! They don't seem to realize that Usopp was aiming for Luffy. Now Usopp and CARUE get pwned by some explosive breath bullet thing. Luffy is SHIRTLESS and the trap is undone.

Sanji is on the ship... >_____>. Now he searches for Nami and Vivi.

Mr. 3 says Luffy is too late to save them now.

Mr. 3 is now in his "candle champion" which is like some mecha made of candlewax. He says he is invincible. Goldenweek now gives him a coat of paint, which probably makes him even stronger.Luffy kicks him, but it didn't work.

Usopp says that if Luffy sets the wax figures on fire, they should be fine. But Mr. 3 says soon their hearts will stop to beat.

Usopp gets nailed by Mr. 5 before he can save them. CARUE FREAKS OUT.

Usopp has some rope or something in Carue's mouth. He tells Carue to keep running around the candle thing. CARUE RUNS! WHAT A BADASS! LOOK AT HIM RUN!

CARUE IS BARELY DODGING BULLETS! GO CARUE! GO!

LUFFY GRABS MR. 3! HE HAS A FIRE ON HIS HEAD! HE IS GONNA USE MR.3 TO LIGHT IT ON FIRE!!!! USOPP DOUSES THE ROPE IN OIL! GOD DAMN USOPP AND CARUE YESSSS.

EXPLOSION! The candle stuff is completely on fire!

Mr. 3 and Goldenweek run away.

Valentine is about to crush Usopp... NAMI AND VIVI STOP HER! SOME OF THEIR CLOTHES BURNED OFF! THANK GOD!!!

Usopp fires something at Mr. 5. LOL he fired some sort of hot sauce, he only said it was gunpowder. Nice! Mr. 5 now is going to do a full body explosion! NAMI IN A BRA btw.

ZORO EMERGES, BURNING DEMON SLASH! Mr. 5 is probably done for. Epic music playing BTW.

LUFFY AND CARUE ARE RUNNING AFTER MR. 3 AND GOLDENWEEK TOGETHER! HELLZ YEAH! CARUUUUEEE! Mr. 3 created like dozens of wax figures of himself, so Luffy won't be able to discover which is him. LUFFY ATTACKS, HE HITS THE REAL ONE! NO WAY! AWESOME! He found him through instinct, which he was just bashing about Luffy.

CARUE SEES GOLDENWEEK! HE PWNS HER! YES I LOVE YOU CARUE!!!

Sanji is at Mr. 3's place, someone calls, it's Mr. 0. He sounds badass.

Overall: Phew, what a ride! This episode had tons of action, it was great to see Usopp and Carue working together to help the team. They really are a perfect team as somewhat brave yet cowardly badasses. Luffy was cool at the end. Nami in a bra, great end to Little Garden's fights!


NARUTO EPISODE 76: ASSASSIN OF THE MOONLIT NIGHT

Naruto is all "WTF this is Gaara?".

Sakura says they have to run. GAARA IS COMING FOR SASUKE... SAKURA STANDS IN THE WAY! Gaara grabs her and pins her to a tree. He seems to remember some girl from his past. Or is it a guy >_>.

Gaara asks this guy/girl what it is like to be in pain because he doesn't feel pain thanks to the sand protecting him. Gaara wonders if he/she hates him, but he/she says no.

Gaara essentially implies he has a BROKEN HEART or something. The guy says the only thing that can heal the heart is LOVE. Oh god.

The guy says his mother loved him or something.

Back to Orochimaru-Hokage. Still at the same point, lawl.

We now see GUY! YES! 2 ninjas attack, HE PUNCHES HIM TO THE WALL! KICK TO THE STOMACH!

KAKASHI! HE PWNS A NOOB! GUY PWNS 2 MORE NOOBS! Man an episode of them just fighting would be sweet.

Gaara flashback again. He tried apologizing to the people that he heart, but they just yelled at him and told him to go away. This makes Gaara emo. He ends up killing someone in the street >_>.

Now he is all crying and emo. As he is doing this, some ninja attacks him, he kills him with SAND COFFIN. WHAT, IT WAS THE GUY WHO WAS TAKING CARE OF HIM! He says that Gaara did well. Gaara freaks out.

Gaara asks Naruto who Sasuke and Sakura are to him. NARUTO IS PISSED! HE IS GONNA PULVERIZE GAARA! Gaara tells him to try it.

NARUTO JUMPS TO ATTACK!

Overall: I really didn't care for most of the flashback, although the end was quite intense. I'm pumped for the Naruto vs. Gaara fight so lets get it on already!


Naruto vs. One Piece: Hey sweet, easy decision. One Piece had a pretty epic conclusion to its fights, Naruto had a mostly boring flashback. The One Piece comeback trail could finally be coming into full effect!

Episode 77[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 77: FAREWELL TO THE GIANTS' ISLAND! ON TO ALABASTA

Character rankings and such after this episode! Wooo! Just going through the Season 2 episodes, despite it only being 20 episodes, season 2 was so much better than season 1. Way more awesome, One Piece is really on its way to becoming great. I can see why it made it to #3 on Mumei's top anime list already! And I still have so much more to go!

Brogy is crying... DORRY WAKES UP? Oh god they really DO NEVER KILL ANYONE. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. THIS WHOLE ARC WAS BUILT AROUND HIS DEATH JUST ABOUT >____>.

Sanji is on the phone with Mr. 0. Sanji says the mission is complete. The "unluckies" are headed to the island to bring them to Alabasta. They are going to commence the final stage of the plan.

Oh THATS the unluckies. They arrive where Sanji is. It's 2 weird animals.

The unluckies fire at Sanji. He kicks their asses. He manages to convince Mr. 0 it was one of the straw hats who just attacked. We see a hint of Mr. 0's power, he seems to be able to make things he touches die, or something.

Their explanation for Dorry living is that the weapons suck after 100 year. I guess it makes sense.

Mr. 0 wants them to send Mr. 2 to kill Mr. 3 on his way to Alabasta. "Oh." lol.

Sanji now arrives. He has an ETERNAL LOG POSE TO ALABASTA! The unluckies had it. Well then thats convenient! Luffy and crew are now going to leave.

The giants mention some monster in the sea. I guess they are going to kill it for Luffy and crew?

The giants tell them not to stray from their course no matter what. Believe in them. Pretty intense! The giant monster now appears. CARUE FREAKS OUT!!!

They are headed straight for it. Luffy is trusting the giants. Erm, they get eaten >_>. Now the giants attack. EXPLOSION! They seem to cut a hole right through the giant fish.

Overall: Generally the episode after a arc ends with the farewells and such kind of suck, but this was actually quite good. I enjoyed the send off with the giants especially.


NARUTO EPISODE 77: LIGHT VS DARK: THE TWO FACES OF GAARA

More Gaara flashbacks? Exactly what I always wanted lolol.

Naruto attacks... GAARA IS IN PAIN. But he still manages to knock Naruto away.

Back to the flashback. Gaara wants to know why his carekeeper guy attacked him. He says he was ordered to kill him by his father. He explains that Gaara was essentially an experiment. It has become clear he won't ever be able to control the sand spirit, so he was sent to kill him. Now he says he could have refused, but he didn't.

He says deep in his heart he always hated Gaara for his sister's death. Gaara's name did not come from love. It was out of rage. His mom's hate lives on in Gaara. SHe wanted him to survive as revenge. Gaara was never loved. He has a bunch of bombs attached to him, EXPLOSION. Gaara is protected by the sand of course, and Gaara weeps. The things that kept him going, the belief that at least a few people loved him, has been destroyed.

Rage seeps into Gaara's eyes. He screams. He realizes that he is all alone.

Naruto has a plan! TOAD TIME! YES YES YES!!! He summons... a tiny ass toad, whaaaaat. Augh. Gaara seems to be turning into completely a sand spirit. Sakura only has so long until she will be killed.

Sand Shuriken by Gaara, Naruto is hit. He protected that stupid toad.

Jesus, the Hokage-Orochimaru fight is STILL at the same point. Man, they might just be re-using the same animation every episode <_<.

Naruto realizes how alike he and Gaara are. He has the fox inside of him. He sees the same loneliness in Gaara's eyes that were in his own. He remembers times with his friends, Iruka, Kakashi, Sasuke, Sakura. He thinks he could have ended up the same as Gaara.

NARUTO CHARGES IN! SHADOW CLONE! SAND STORM BY GAARA! The shadows are pwned, and Naruto is down. Damn it Naruto, THE FOX, USE THE FOX.

Naruto gets nailed by more sand attacks. NARUTO IS GETTING A STRANGE FEELING! HE IS GETTING STRONGER!!! AS IF HE WAS ON FIRE!!! YES NARUTO YES!!!

Overall: Wooo! This was a surprisingly good episode. I actually liked this part of the Gaara flashback since it was way more interesting. I also liked Naruto's thoughts on himself and Gaara, and the end pumped me up. Good stuff!


Naruto vs. One Piece: Just as One Piece looked like it might be gaining some serious momentum, Naruto strikes back with a very good episode that beats out a good One Piece episode. One Piece is apparently about to enter a weaker arc, so Naruto has a chance to get its lead back above 20.

5. Sanji- Sanji's girl gimmick still sucks, but he has his moments.

6. Dorry and Brogy- Badass giants

7. Shanks- No face time this season means he gets surpassed by some characters.

8. Mihawk- I have not forgotten him either!

9. Nami- I still feel like theres nothing that special about her. Only real personality was in Arlong arc so far.

10. Vivi- Decent enough tag along chick. She did bring us CARUE at least!


Episode 78[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 78: NAMI IS SICK? BEYOND THE SNOW THAT FALLS ON THE OCEAN!

Wow, season 3! I'm pretty far, pretty cool imo. BTW when does this spoiler OP even start that I hear so much about?

We now get a random flashback of the history of Brogy and Dorry. They had a hunting contest, a little girl asked who had a bigger catch, and that caused their eternal war >_>. Haha, I remember Brogy or someone acting funny when he heard about Zoro and Sanji's hunting contest.

CARUE AND CREW ARE DANCING ON THE SHIP!!!! CARUUUUE!

Don't the fansubbers feel like idiots subbing it "Arabasta" when the log pose clearly says Alabasta?

Nami looks sick "oh god".

We see Mr. 2. WHAT. He uhhh is a man who uhh, dresses in pink >_>.

Nami falls over. Oh, this reminds me, they were talking about getting a doctor and a musician, but they never got one!

Vivi says lots of pirates die due to illness because of changes in the climate.

She has a 40C fever, WHATEVER THAT MEANS IN FARENHEIT. They need to find a doctor, but they don't know what to do. Nami says theres a newspaper in her desk.

It says 300,000 Imperial Soldiers have joined the rebels in Alabasta. Originally it was Imperials 600,000 to 400,000 rebels. So now it's 700,000 to 300,000. "whoa."

Nami says they don't have time to look for a doctor, they need to head straight for Alabasta. She will be fine. She walks away, but she is obviously very sick.

Outside, Zoro is screwing up the direction of the ship. Nami says a wind is coming, so everyone is manning their stations. Nami says it doesn't seem like a storm.

They are back on the right course thanks to Nami.

Vivi wants to go to a doctor before going to Alabasta. She knows they need Nami.

Now a HUGE CYCLONE APPEARS. However, Nami sent them away from it. Nami is the greatest navigator ever, etc etc.

It appears to be snowing outside, and now they see some weird guy standing on the ocean.

Overall: Some desperation was added to the "quest to Alabasta" story, but overall this was pretty uneventful.


NARUTO EPISODE 78: NARUTO'S NINJA HANDBOOK

WHAT NEW OP?

It's fun, but I think I prefer the last 2 OPs.

Naruto with SHADOW CLONE! CLONE BODY SLAM IS COMING! 3 GET GRABBED, WHAT, HE KEEPS DOING SHADOW CLONES! YES NARUTO! YES! 1000 YEARS OF DEATH! BUTT FINGER POKE, BOOM! HE PLACED A BOMB ON HIM! FUCK YEAH NARUTO!

Gaara wonders if he underestimated Naruto. He isn't wounded, but he is shedding sand.

Sasuke wants Naruto to just get Sakura and run. He will hold off Gaara once Naruto accomplishes that. Naruto realizes he was wrong. The strong fight for others. He remembers Haku, he remembers Iruke, He remembers the boy from the land of waves, he remembers Kakashi. HELL YEAH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! POWER UP!! POWER UP!!!

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, I SWEAR I WILL PROTECT YOU!! SHADOW CLONE! HUNDREDS OF THEM!!! YEAH BABY! YEAH! YOU GOT THIS NARUTO! FUCK YEAH! HELL YEAH!

NO ONE CAN BELIEVE IT! YOU RULE NARUTO!!!

HERE WE GO! LET'S DO THIS! DIRECT FROM THE NARUTO NINJA HANDBOOK! THEY ALL THROW SHURIKENS! THEY GET BEHIND HIM! THEY ARE KICKING THE HELL OUT OF GAARA! PUNCHES! TONS OF PUNCHES! HUNDREDS OF PUNCHES!!! BAM! BAM! BAM! GAARA HITS THE GROUND! YES YES YES YES!!!!

4000 KICKS! GAARA CAN'T BELIEVE IT! GAARA REFUSES TO LOSE! SAND! A bunch of the clones get hit and disappear. WHAT. GAARA IS GETTING HUGE (lol). This is Gaara's true form! GIANT FREAKING MONSTER. He kinda looks like a sand version of the fox.

Naruto is getting Sand Coffin'd. HE USED UP ALL HIS CHAKRA. THE FOX YOU FOOL. THE FOX. He sees Sakura, he gets surrounded by sand, SAND BURIAL. EXPLOSION! THE GIANT TOAD IS HERE! YES YES YES! THE TOAD THE TOAD!!!

GIANT TOAD VS. GIANT SAND SPIRIT. The toad doesn't want to do it. The small toad is here. Thats his dad! He says the spirit was picking on him! And Naruto defended him! THE TOAD IS GETTING PISSED! Awww yeah. Naruto is now accepted as a henchman of the toad!!!

THE TOAD PULLS OUT A SWORD! HAHA YES!! YES YES YES!!!

THE TOAD ATTACKS, HE JUMPS! SLASH!!! SLASH!!! HE TEARS OFF PART OF THE SPIRIT, HIS ARM! YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! EPIC EPIC EPIC! EPIC!!!

Gaara's human form now emerges at the top of the sand spirit. He is going to show his TRUE POWAH.

Gaara now falls asleep. Apparently this is what makes the spirit's true power show up. THE SAND SPIRIT SAYS HE IS FINALLY FREE!

THE TOAD DODGES AN ATTACK! LIQUID ATTACK BY TOAD! BLOCKED BY A SAND ATTACK!

TOAD JUMPS! MORE LIQUID AND SAND ATTACKS! ARE YOU SERIOUS! SO EPIC!!! ONE HITS THE TOAD! NO NO! THE SAND SPIRIT SAYS HE WON. WAIT! TOAD IS FINE! HE SAYS THAT KIND OF HURT! HAHAHA HES SO COOL!

The toad needs Naruto to wake up Gaara. THE TOAD GRABS THE SPIRIT! NOW IS NARUTO'S CHANCE! Wait, no. The toad can't grab the spirit for a long time as a toad! WAIT YES! THEY ARE GOING TO DO A TRANSFORMATION JUTSU! SOMETHING WITH FANGS AND CLAWS. Naruto can't think of anything, TRANSFORM! THE FOX! THE FOX! THE MOTHA FUCKING FOX! HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

Overall: EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC EPICPEIEPICPEIC
