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 121[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 121: VIVI GOES UNHEARD! A HERO DESCENDS!

Kohza falls... he says not to fight them... but hes not very loud... Now sand appears. Now more gun shots, lawl. People on both side are dying from gun shots, pissing off both sides. And now the fighting resumes.

Chaka falls over... the fight is going on... the king wonders if this is it for everything. He tells Vivi to run, Vivi refuses. She says she can still stop this. Croc mocks her, saying she can't stop it. Vivi refuses to give up her ideals. She says she will save this country.

15 minutes till bomb time. Croc holds Vivi over the castle walls. He continues to mock Vivi... ok we get it. She failed. He finally drops her, she goes falling to her death... Croc laughs. PELL IS HERE! WITH LUFFY! IT'S LUFFY! IT'S LUFFY! IT'S LUFFY! IT'S LUFFY! IT'S LUFFY! CROC DOESN'T BELIEVE IT! YESSSS.

Luffy and Pell save Vivi. LUFFY IS HERE! LUFFFYYY! Vivi tells them about the bomb... No one can hear her. Luffy says he can. Luffy vows that he won't lose again.

CHOPPER IS HERE!!! AND USOPP! They are happy that Luffy is alive. SO IS SANJI! AND EYELASHES! AND NAMI! AND ZORO! THE WHOLE GANG! Nami has very few clothes on >_>.

Luffy apologizes for losing... but he won't lose again! He says for them to take card of the rest. Luffy is wearing like, a water barrel on his back.

LUFFY TAKES OFF TOWARDS CROC! YOU HAVE NO CHANCE FOOL. LUFFY PUNCH...... WHAT! WHJWTA! WHATW HAT !HWT AWHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT. HE CONNECTED! HOW? HOW? WOW!!!! HE GRABS CROC! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. BUZZSAW! HEADBUTT RIGHT TO CROC! NO WAY NO WAY NO WAY NO WAY!!!! I DON'T BELIEVE IT! CROC IS HURT! CROC IS DOWN! LUFFY LAUGHS! UNBELIEVABLE! THE KING DOESN'T BELIEVE IT! I DON'T! WTFFF. LUFFY FIGURED OUT WHEN CROC GETS WET HE CAN'T TURN TO SAND. HE IS SCARED OF WATER! THATS WHY HE ELIMINATED THE RAIN! OMGGG IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE. IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!!!

Overall: LUFFY HIT CROC LUFFY HIT CROC LUFFY HIT CROC. First half was pretty boring, especially the endless croc mocking Vivi scenes, but once Luffy arrived, GOD TIER.

NARUTO EPISODE 121: TO EACH HIS OWN BATTLE:

Kiba stabs himself again...and Ukon is no longer on his body! But both are badly hurt.

Kiba throws some smoke bombs...and disappears. Ukon sees Aka, he thinks Kiba left and ditched his dog. He walks to finish off Aka... IT WAS A TRAP! AKA EXPLODES AND KUNAIS HIT HIM. Kiba is elsewhere with Aka. Aka is still breathing apparently.

Kiba-Aka flashbacks time. We get when they first met. Kiba's mom and sister are accompanied by full blown wolves. Aka pissed on Kiba's face within 10 seconds of meeting >_>. Training clips now.

Sakon is still trying to clean his eyes. Ukon says he has to sleep. He tells Sakon to capture Kiba alive so they can both kill him when he wakes up.

Naruto and his clones are getting dominated. Kimimaro can make bones appear out of his body to attack, ewww.

Now Kimi pulls out one of his bones or something, haha so ewww. He has turned his bone into a sword. Kimi says it is harder than steel.

Shika dodges more attacks, plus does substittuions. He still hasn't been hit.

Kiba smells something bad... he says they need to get out of here, but he can't move. He also left traces of blood to follow it seems. Sakon is on the case... he sees Kiba... Kiba left his coat! But the blood trails now go to the water. He floated away.

Shika knows theres something special about how she plays, that if he could figure it out, he could maybe figure out the movements of the warriors, but he doesn't know anything about music.

Now she starts to play her most deadly song. The warriors attack...

overall: Eh, OK episode I guess. The Kiba stuff was pretty interesting but obviously not that exciting. Naruto and Shika fights had nothing significant happen, weaker ep.

'Naruto vs. One Piece: Both episodes had some serious slow points here, the only difference is, OP had a badass ending, and Naruto had nothing too special happen. OP takes it.

Episode 122[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 122: DEATH MATCH, ROUND 2:

OK Arc predictions. Luffy and Croc are fighting, Luffy is winning with his water trick, though it is a somewhat back and forth fight. Luffy RUNS OUT OF WATER though, now Croc starts kicking his ass again... but then... RAIN. IT RAINS OUT OF NOWHERE, IT'S A MIRACLE. All the troops stop fighting, and rejoice, and Luffy is able to whoop Crocodile's ass with the rain, winning the fight. So, just so you all know, I called it.

Luffy tells Croc to get up. Croc laughs. He laughs even harder now. Oh god, he's still confident I bet.

Vivi and crew decide to try and find the bombers. They think they would be nearby, since Croc is a jerk. Now the crew gets surrounded by Baroque Works guys. Zoro and Sanji do some BADASS BACK TO BACK FIGHTING. TV TROPES.

Croc says Luffy still can't beat him. Shichibukai are on a whole different level. Luffy says it is now the "HACHIBUKAI" (8 instead of 7). lol.

The king asks who the hell this is, Nico says he is a pirate, the one who brought Vivi here. She's uhh just watching this fight BTW >_>. I don't think Croc is really a "tag team fighter".

Luffy with a pistol, dodged. Croc says he can still dodge attacks. He grabs Luffy's arm and sucks the water out. Luffy kicks Croc. Croc turns to sand, Luffy drinks water to restore his arm. Pistol again...SPINNY PISTOL! SHOTGUN! Clever attack, but Croc dodges, then does his ground sand attack, Luffy dodges.

On a side note, they've done a good job giving a reason for Luffy getting stronger this arc. He learned from Croc that how you use a devil fruit is just as important as possessing one. Luffy realizes he needs to modify and enhance his abilities.

Pistol again... WAIT, HE STOPS IT, RIGHT BEFORE! HE RUSHES IN! PUNCH! HE TRIES TO THROW THE WATER BARREL ON CROC... Croc blows it away with sand. Croc says Luffy is desperate. Nothing has changed. Luffy says he is right...

LUFFY DRINKS ALL THE WATER! WATER LUFFY! WTF! HE SAYS NOW IT IS DIFFERENT. Nico thinks this is hilarious, Croc doesn't understand WTF is wrong with Luffy. He says enough BS!!! WHAT. LUFFY SPITS WATER ON CROC! YES YES! LUFFY SAYS HE IS ALWAYS SERIOUS.... BAZOOKA!!!!! BAM! BAM BAM!!! CROC GOES FLYING INTO A STONE STRUCTURE. Luffy seems to have all the water stored in his stomach, so he doesn't have to carry around the barrel. I guess with his rubber body it's... semi plausible.

The king doesn't believe it. Nico now pulls the nails out of the King's shoulder. She says to guide her to the Poneglyph. I like Nico, she is just cool somehow, kind of interesting.

Croc is now SUPER PISSED. The king seems to recognize the name Nico Robin. She really is the 1 character of Baroque Works who has had little to no development, I guess thats why she interests me, especially with small hints like that from the king. Plus, the time she saved Luffy. Damn.

Croc now kills all the land around the battlefield... and he starts like a giant earthquake. Water Pistol by Luffy... Croc sucks it up in his hand. Now he stills killing more land... even the statues are turning to sand... Luffy's sandals dry up. GROUND DEATH BY CROC. What the hell is gonna happen? Dust and smoke everywhere.

8 minutes left... Usopp spotts a cannon, Zoro does badass platforming all over the place and makes it. Nope, the cannon isn't it.

7 minutes. King and Nico Robin. King says 20 years ago a Nico Robin became infamous... I guess this is where she finally gets developed. Er nope, King gives no other details. They now get stopped by the marines/sword girl. The king says they must stop the explosion. Nico takes out a bunch of people. A marine says this is Nico Robin, Smoker had him dig up the poster. 79 mill bounty (what was Luffy's right now again?). She sunk 6 marine ships at the age of 8. So she is 28. She disappeared after that incident. Marine girl orders everyone to go look for the bomb. She is going to fight Nico. Nico owns her quickly, and has her own sword to her throat.

Luffy is still OK. Croc now appears in front of him. HE IS STILL PISSED! He grabs Luffy by the neck... WATER SPIT... DODGED. OH MY GOD. LUFFY'S WHOLE BODY IS DRYING UP! NO! NO! CROC SAYS LUFFY LOSES. LUFFY IS SHRIVELED. NOOOO.

Overall: Good ass episode. The fight was never that great, but there was tons of plot development in general, Croc had to get serious, marines arrived, Nico development, bomb searching. Just a lot going on. Very good stuff.


NARUTO EPISODE 122: FAKEOUT: SHIKAMARU'S COMEBACK!

Kimi's bone is able to split shurikens in 2. Kimi continues to kick ass. This fight has been at the same point for several episodes.

Sound chicks plays her special song. WTF? Weird spirits come at Shika from the warriors. Music during this is prety neat. One bits the chakra from Shika's hand... but he appears to be OK. Kunai do not work on them... PAPER BOMB. Doesn't work.

Shika says these things are literally chakra, which eat chakra. Shika says he must reach the main body. Or to get shadow possession on the warriors. But he says each tactic would be difficult and possibly get him killed. He takes his thinking pose (he is hiding).

Kiba is still on the move... Aka is still passed out. He puts Aka on his head and continues.

Sound chick says she will find Shika, there's no use in hiding.

Shika has his plans. He takes out his gear. He throws a kunai/paper bomb near the sound chick. It explodes. Sound chick jumps away. She continues to play... A kunai comes right at her... a warrior blocks it for her. Another guy comes for that position... Shika isn't there... TRAP. Another kunai... blocked... two more... another 2... all blocked. They are all coming from different traps, I think to confuse where his position is. He throws his last kunai... and shows himself! The warriors attack... the kunai sets off a trap! It goes off near sound chick! Nice! SHADOW POSSESSION! A SUCCESS! SHIKA THEME! SHIKA THEME! SHIKA THEME! SHIKA THEME! Shika figured out the command patterns through her fingers rather than the music. Nice! Shika, most badass man alive. He memorized what every finger position did. All the traps before were to help figure out what all her fingers did. She plays her flute again.

Shika says it's his turn to attack! Sound chick still seems confident. All the warriors and Shika attack... RETREAT. She made the warriors disappear. Damn. WHAT. WHAT. SHIKA WAS SETTING UP ANOTHER SHADOW POSESSION THE WHOLE TIME! It was working its way around the trees from behind. He used the warriors as bait. HE KNEW! HE KNEW! MOTHA shitA! SHIKA KNEW! MOST BADASS MAN ALIVE.

Sound chick says she has to force her way out now. She goes to phase 2. Thats a shame, she was kinda hot, lawl. She can actually move a little bit. Her chakra is tremendous. Shika says he must use this jutsu. SHADOW STRANGLE JUTSU! It creeps up her body... SHE STARTS TO PLAY THE FLUTE! NO! The scenery changes. Genjutsu it seems. He can't aim accurately anymore. Shadow strangle is stopped. Now Shika can't move! No Shika no!

Shika sees himself being all tied up... and his body melting. It's all an illusion but it freaks him out. Sound chick grabs a kunai. She gets ready to stap him... WHAT! PUNCH! PUNCH IN THE GUT! SHIKA BROKE HIS OWN FINGER WITH SHADOW STRANGLE, THEN HE FAKED STILL BEING IN IT. SHADOW STRANGLE AGAIN! IT IS STRONGER FROM CLOSE! Sound chick says she was careless to get so close.

SHIKA SAYS NO! She was careless when she said that her flute was her only weapon... HE MISSED WITH THAT KUNAI EARLIER ON PURPOSE! OMFGGOMGHFOMOMFFFGGG. HE KNEW SHE WOULD PICK IT UP AND COME CLOSER, ENABLING THE BETTER SHADOW STRANGLE. HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! THAT IS THE COOLEST THING EVER! AMAZING FIGHT!

Kiba is still travelling...

Overall: This episode started off a bit slow, and I was frustrated with the Naruto fight going nowhere. The Shika fight started slow, but by god. The 2nd half of this episode was some of the coolest shit ever. Great, great fight.


Naruto vs. One Piece: I complement OP a lot here for using every second of the episode to the maximum. It was a 2 post writeup because everything was pretty important, after I had complained about the past few episodes being kind of pointless at times. So props there. Naruto had a slow first half, but the Shika fight got so amazing, holy shit. Absolutely exhilarating. Despite not being as good from start to finish, Naruto was amazing enough to take it.

Episode 123[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 123: SMELLS LIKE CROC!

Croc drops Luffy, he is so dried up he literally floats to the ground... Looks like Luffy spit his water in the air. 6 minutes till bomb... the water comes down... and lands on Luffy! He is revived! Haha nice. But Croc is gone towards the tomb, where the poneglyph is. Luffy is heading there.

Nico and the King are at the tomb. The king reveals a hidden stairwell to the Poneglyph. Apparently, Nico can read it (which no one else can really do). This is why Croc cooperates with her/doesn't kill her. They think Pluton's location might be on the Poneglyph.... they make it.

Sword marine chick is down after her Nico fight. She still vows to capture her... lawl. Now... CROC APPEARS!! He mocks her, and Smoker for running away, then walks away.

5 minutes. They are beginning to think the cannon is inside of a building.

Luffy comes across marine sword chick. Luffy asks where Croc went. She drops her sword, she was originally planning on fighting Luffy. She points him in the right direction. I really have no idea why this chick gets a decent amount of face time. She doesn't interest me in the least, one of the most boring OP characters that gets some spotlight imo.

Luffy now falls to the ground. He has a wound of some sort. He gets up and falls again.

Nico reads the Poneglyph. Croc arrices at the tomb area. He asks Nico to read it. It seems to be a history of Alabasta. Nico says thats all there is. Croc says he has decided to kill Nico now. Their pact from four years ago is done. He says she has gone against her word. He thinks she is lying... hmmm... Nico's eyes open wider! I think she was lying...

Nico goes for a water attack... Croc dodges! He stabs Nico! He forgives Nico, because he never trusts anyone. He says he knows Pluton exists based on the king's reaction to it. He will find it.

RUMBLING! The king set a trap! This place is gonna collapse, and all 3 will die!

VIVI REMEMBERS SOMETHING! A hiding spot Kohza used to use in hide and seek... Usopp does some slingshot smoke flare to alert everyone to their position.

Luffy is asleep >____>. He wakes up!

Luffy: Good nap!

He remembers what he had to do! THE CROC! GONNA KICK HIS ASS!

Croc laughs. He can do sand stuff to escape. He says in 3 minutes, the bomb will explode, the king will die, and his plan will be complete.

Luffy races into the tomb...

Overall: Kind of slow episode honestly. Nico was interesting, but thats all that I really enjoyed.


NARUTO EPISODE 123: THE LEAF'S HANDSOME DEVIL!

Shika goes to deliver another punch... she blocks it! Don't ruin this fight with more imo, it was perfect. Shika tries to increase Shadow Strangle. She pushes it back. Groaning battle... <_<.

Kiba sniffs some crazy fast ninja around... he heads back to the river.

All of Naruto's clones have finally been defeated. Huh? Now Sasuke's coffin explodes! Kimi says it is time. Sasuke is out. Naruto says we're going home now >_>. Sasuke laughs. Sasuke jumps away... KIMI ATTACKS! HE'S BEHIND NARUTO... WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT. ROCK IS HERE! ROCK ROCK ROCK ROCK!!!!! YESSSSS. THE REJUVENATED LEAF'S HANDSOME DEVIL! ROCK LEE! YESSSSSSS! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! ROCK THEME!

Rock tells Naruto to get Sasuke. Naruto doesn't know... he is worried about Rock. THUMBS UP! THUMPS UP! He says Naruto promised Sakura with a nice-guy pose. He must go get Sasuke! ROCK WILL BEAT KIMI! ULTIMATE BADASS!

Kimi goes for Naruto... STRIKE WITH THE BONE.... ROCK BLOCKS IT WITH HIS HAND! NO WAY! "Please don't ignore me" haw haw.

Back at Leaf, the Jounin that got their asses beat want backup to be sent, as theres no way a genin team can handle this. Tsunade says no, every Chunin and Jounin is occupied. There is nothing they can do. They have to make their strength appear more than it is. It's funny that Naruto and crew are still Genins. Unless they get promoted at the end of the arc, they should have another chunin exams in filler hell. The jounin say they can't put off Orochi forever... Tsunade says it is taken care of...hm? Guy shows up and asks about Rock's surgery (he was out on mission). Tsunade says he can begin training tomorrow if it's for jutsu...uh oh >_>. Now they find out Rock is gone. Guy screams a NOOOOO.

Epic animation/hand to hand fighting. UPPERCUT! ROCK HITS KIMI!

LOL, Rock took a battle of Sake instead of a bottle of medicine. WHOOPS. Guy freaks out now. When Rock drinks even a little alcohol... THINGS GET... SO MESSY. XDXDXD. This is gonna be amazing!

More epic fighting. COME ON ROCK! Kimi is starting to get dodged too easy... he says Rock is too straight forward... he is about to strike... ROCK SAYS PLEASE WAIT. KIMI STOPS! He has to drink his medicine! Kimi stops... XD. This is so hilarious.

ROCK HAS THE SAKE. GUY NOW TELLS STORIES OF DRUNK ROCK! He once drank Sake instead of water on accident... THINGS GOT UGLY.

ROCK DRINKS THE SAKE!

ROCK DESTROYED AN ENTIRE RESTAURANT WHEN HE WAS DRUNK. ROCK GOES INTO A DRUNKEN FRENZY WHEN HE DRINKS! GUY CRIES! GUY CRIES!

ROCK STUMBLES. Kimi wonders wtf Rock drank. ROCK IS WASTED XDXDXD. HE IS SO WASTED! SOOOO WASTED! DRUNKEN FIST STYLE! YESSSSSSS! YESSSS!

Overall: Rock was pretty badass this episode, but then the episode surprisingly became like a comedy, and it was hilarious.


Naruto vs. One Piece: OP was a bit slow here. I can't say I was very into it. Naruto meanwhile had an epic return, plus was pretty funny. Naruto takes it. Last Marathon day, OP went 5-0. Could Naruto do the same thing?

Episode 124[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 124: THE NIGHTMARE DRAWS NEAR!

Vivi thinks the cannon is in the clock tower itself, where her and Kohza had their "base" as kids. But now BAROQUE WORKS GUYS. Usopp realizes the bad guys followed the symbol too >_>.

USOPP NOISE! HE SCRATCHES A CHALKBOARD AND THEN RUNS! USOPP IS SO GOOD.

Croc is laughing at how awesome he is when... LUFFY IS HERE! CROC DOESN'T BELIEVE IT!

Croc: How many times do I have to kill you until you are satisfied!

Luffy attacks. HE KICKS LUFFY! LUFFY DIDN'T HAVE ANY WATER! WTF! PISTOL! IT HITS AGAIN! NO WAY! RIGHT IN THE FACE! I DON'T BELIEVE IT!

Ahhh hah. The blood on Luffy's hands is what is doing it this time. Another kick, DODGED.

Croc now says Luffy will be treated properly as the nuisance he is. He takes the cover off his hook. The hook is poison. They will decide the victor once and for all.

Zoro runs across some marines. They call him an idiot and tell him he is going the wrong way. He is confused >_>.

Usopp and Vivi run from the BW guys... Tashigi is here. She and the marines will cover them. 2 minutes left. Chopper and Nami now catch up. Vivi says if Pell was here he could stop the bombing...

PELL GETS SHOT. He falls to the ground from the air.

The tomb is really collapsing as the fight continues. Luffy punches... dodged. I think he dodged the hook counter atack, but it looked like it may have nicked him. More attacks... Croc is bleeding big time. LUFFY GRABS THE HOOK! ROLLING KICK! CROC IS HIT!

Croc says the poison is already seeping through Luffy's body. I guess he was grazed a few times.

1 minute left till bomb. Pell is still gone... wait... Sanji is already in the clock tower... so is Zoro >_>. They want to know what to do >_>. Nami has an idea. The clock tower opens. Big ass cannon. IT'S MR. 7 and Miss Fathersday guarding it!

Overall: Good episode here, not great, but good. The bomb thing is starting to feel drawn out, but the Luffy-Croc fight is quality.


NARUTO EPISODE 124: THE BEAST WITHIN

WHOA! ROCK'S MOVEMENTS ARE AWESOME NOW! HE IS FASTER! Kimi said earlier Rock's movements were too straight forward... this would fix that >_>.

DRUNK ROCK MOTHA shitA!!!

Rock falls over... and falls asleep >_>. Kimi is still wondering what this medicine is <_<. Kimi goes to strike... IT WAS A TRICK XDXDXD. HE GRABS THE BONE AND STRIKES. IT'S A SHINOBI SECRET! KIMI IS DOWN! Rock falls asleep again >____>. YOU FELL FOR IT AGAIN! HAHAHA.

Kimi now realizes Rock is just drunk.

Shika fight is still at the same point. I'm not sure why they even bother cutting to these fights if they won't advance them.

Kimi strikes a sleeping Rock... Rock turns in his sleep to dodge all of them... XD. Kimi is getting frustrated that he can't him Rock. ROCK NAILS KIMI A FEW TIMES AS HE WAKES UP!

Tsunade wonders how long Rock's body can last.

ROCK CHARGES... and slips <_____<. HE IS ANGRY! EPIC FIGHTING! ROCK SAYS HE IS ENJOYING HIS YOUTH! EPIC FIGHTING ON HIS HANDS! ROCK IS SO AWESOME!

BEST ANIMATION EVER WOW. ROCK NAILS KIMI AGAIN! KIMI IS DOWN! YES ROCK YES!

Three ninja are still moving through the forest.

Kimi is forced to go to level 1 curse mark. ROCK SAYS HE IS NOT DRUNK! HE IS A MINOR AND MINORS SHOULDN'T DRINK (screw you rock >_>).

Rock finally gets cut. Bones are sticking out all over Kimi's body.

Sakon is near Kiba again.

The cut seems to make Rock sober up. Well that was quick >_>. Rock attacks, blocked easily. SPINNING ATTACK BY ROCK! HE GETS NAILED BY THE BONES AS HE SPINS! OUCH.

Sakon has found Kiba! Noooo DONT KILL AKA.

Rock says the real deal is now... Oh god, SECRET TECHNIQUE TIME. HE CHARGES. FIRST GATE. LOTUS. Blocked by the bones.

Shika can't think of any good strategies... he is about to realise Shadow Strangle...

Kiba is about to be attacked...

Rock is about to be annihilated.

SHIKA IS SAVED! KIBA IS SAVED! ROCK IS SAVED!

WHAAAAAT. WHAAAAAAAAAAAT. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT. IT'S THE SAND NINJA! IT'S THE SAND NINJA! IT'S THE SAND NINJA! THEY SAVED ALL 3! INCLUDING GAARA! WTFF!

Overall: The rock fight was great... until he sobered up. Then the episode got a little slow, but was saved by an awesome ending. I wonder what's up.


Naruto vs. One Piece: The Luffy/Croc fight is good stuff, but it isn't really being concentrated on. In OP, the bomb is more of the focus right now, and thats been a bit too Goku-Frieza/kind of boring for my liking. First half of Naruto was great, but the 2nd half was really slow. If not for the ending, I probably give this to OP, but the ending barely pushes Naruto over OP.

Naruto: 68

One Piece: 56


Episode 125[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 125: MAGNIFICENT WINGS!

Tashigi is randomly being badass and killing BW guys. About time!

Mr. 7 and Miss fathersday say it's time to do it.

Luffy with another attack... second attack... both dodged. Gatling gun... dodged. Croc says to Luffy, "you're already dead!" lol Hokuto No Ken. The poison is in his body... Luffy seems to be getting weaker. Croc says no matter what happens, Luffy will die.

15 seconds to launch. They ignite the cannon. They do a countdown... Nami does Cyclone tenpo... on Usopp's nuts. It pushes him, Chopper, and Vivi upward. Sanji gives them another boost up. Now they get to Zoro... 10 seconds. Zoro with another boost with his swords. Wait, they've been seen.

Croc makes fun of Luffy for sacrificing his life for others... Luffy says he doesn't understand anything. He says he doesn't want her to die, they are friends.

7 shoots at them. It comes at Zoro... he took the shot for them it looks like... Chopper throws Vivi at them, firing in 5 seconds... they shoot at Chopper he goes small to dodge. 4 seconds... 3 seconds... ATTACK!!!

Luffy is down from the poison. Vivi attacks... 2 seconds...She knocks 7 and fathersday off. The fuze is about to light... 1 second. God this is so ridiculous >_>.

Flashback of Vivi going to the secret passage as a child. Pell and Chaka knew about it... I think I know what this means...

The bomb was barely stopped in time.

Chopper fell on a marine and ran away loool.

Vivi says the bomb has a timer and is still going to go off. Oh god whyyy.

Croc says if something happens to the bombers, there is a backup. It'll just be a difference of a few seconds.

15 seconds left on the other timer I believe. Vivi is frustrated and bangs her fists on the cannon. Pell arrives. He says back in the day, this place caused him much stress. Flashbacks of the two together when she was little. It's a pretty touching flashback...

Now Pell... Grabs the cannon in bird form... He flies it into the air as high as he can... wow.... He keeps flying up.... above the clouds. The bomb explodes way in the air. It's a crazy explosion. One Piece just killed a damn character.

Overall: I was a bit bored by this for a while honestly, but man, the flashback/Pell flying ending was great and emotional. Decent ep.

NARUTO EPISODE 125: THE SAND SHINOBI: ALLIES OF THE LEAF

The Sand guys say they are allies of the leaf... including Gaara O_o. Yesss good guy Gaara.

Kimi fires bone bullets at Gaara. Haw haw. Sand shield. Gaara calmly says Rock used to be better. Rock says he has had a hard time because of Gaara. Rock asks why Gaara would help. Gaara says he owes a lot to the lead (aka Naruto).

Sound chick plays her flute. Cyclone Scythe by Sand chick... NICE! WIND LIKE CRAZY! Trees and flute are destroyed! Cool music too. Sound chick says she is like a natural enemy to her.

Ukon and Sakon vs. puppet guy is happening now as well. Sakon has grabbed puppet dude... Hmm? He is fine. His face breaks apart. IT WAS A PUPPET! THE REAL ONE WAS INSIDE OF THE PUPPET CONTAINER! BADASS! SAWS SHOW UP ON THE PUPPET! HE CUTS HIM UP! NICE! SAKON IS DOWN!!! His curse marks are gone. Now Ukon goes level 2 again. Sakon is now inside of Ukon's body. They heal up a bit now. They mock Kiba and puppet guy. Kiba thinks they should retreat for now, but puppet dude refuses after being mocked. Puppet attacks... all dodged. WHAT! THERE WAS A PUPPET BEHIND HIM! ANOTHER ONE! HE IS INSIDE OF THE PUPPET! He says the puppet he used is for capturing, not attacking. BADASS. He is trapped! OH GOD. THE PUPPET BREAKS APART! IT'S LIKE A MAGIC SHOW! ALL THE NEEDLES GO INTO THE COFFIN! YES YES YES! BADASS! SAKON IS DEAD BABY!

Sound chick is hiding. Shika says this fight is bad for them, they should retreat. Sand chick refuses. She says not to underestimate her. WHAT. She summons Some like ferret with a sword. The forest is getting wasted... Like seriously, she just destroyed the upper section of the forest, and sound chick is down and out, no longer curse marked. That was easy! Oh god, this could be Shika's future wife! >_>. Shika even says she is even scarier than his mom.

Gaara and Kimi staredown. Yesss.

Overall: Sand ninjas as good guys is awesome. The chick fight was OK, the puppet master fight was really badass though with a tremendous ending. Good episode.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Outside of the ending, OP was kinda lame and had DBZ time, never a good thing. Meanwhile, Naruto was pretty good from start to finish with sand guys as good guys. Naruto is seriously 4-0 today, completely unexpected. Especially after OP went 5-0 last marathon day.

Episode 126[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 126: I WILL SURPASS YOU! RAIN FALLS ON ALABASTA!

It's somewhat sad that I think there's actually like a 50% chance Pell is still alive. But damn, can they really let someone live after they exploded next to a 5KM blast radius bomb? >_>. I could see it somehow... >_>.

Dust blows everywhere around the town. Vivi is in shock, but Alubarna appears to be safe. Damn...

And now the fighting erupts between the rebels and royal army again. Damn. Vivi tries to scream to stop fighting... over and over, and over, and over. But she is unheard. It's pretty heartbreaking. Nami starts kicking ass and telling the men to stop the damn rebellion. Man, the royal army and rebels are so stupid imo >_>.

Croc says the new era has begun. LUFFY STANDS! Despite the poison! Luffy is drenched in blood. He declares himself the next Pirate King! CROC ATTACKS. DODGED! KICK! LUFFY BREAKS THE HOOK BY SLAMMING IT TO THE GROUND! THE HOOK WAS JUST BROKEN! THE HOOK WAS JUST BROKEN! LUFFY SAYS HE WILL SURPASS CROC! OMGGG!

ANGRY LUFFY AN CROC! PUNCH! NAILS CROC! EPIC! KICK NAILS CROC IN THE HEAD! EPIC! GROUND POUND! EPIC EPIC EPIC! NOW LUFFY TOSSES HIM INTO A WALL! OMG SO EPIC!

Croc doesn't understand why the poison hasn't taken effect... EPIC LUFFY ANGRY STARE! A sword busts out of Croc's hook. ATTACK! DODGE!

Croc: You're just some kid who came from nowhere! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM? Luffy: I don't give a fuck who you are!

UPWARDS KICK! CROC IS SENT FLYING INTO THE AIR! YES LUFFY! SAND ATTACK BY CROC NOW... BAM! The tomb is getting wrecked.... Luffy ATE THE SAND? HE BLOWS HIMSELF UP WITH HIS BREATH! STORM ATTACK! VS. SAND ATTACK! LUFFY BREAKS THROUGH THE SAND, HIS FIST GOES THROUGH IT! RIGHT TO CROC'S HEAD! YES YES! OMFG! MOST EPIC GATLING GUN EVER! THOUSANDS OF PUNCHES THOSANDS I SAY! EPIC PUNCHING! THE WHOLE CITY IS SHAKING, BUILDINGS ARE FALLING OVER, THATS HOW EPIC THIS IS! DO YOU HEAR ME? THATS HOW EPIC THIS IS! CROC IS SENT WAY INTO THE SKY! AMAZING! AMAZING! HE'S JUST SPINNING IN THE AIR.

THE CREW LOOKS UP! THEY SEE CROC! YESSS! LUFFY DID IT! LUFFY DID IT! VIVI SEES IT TOO! SHE IS IN AWE! HE WON! HE WON!

Kohza now. With Croc's sand gone... it starts to rain! Damn it, just a bit after I predicted >_>. The rain causes everyone to just look up at the clouds. The soldiers stop fighting. People drop their swords. Everyone finally hears Vivi yelling to stop fighting.

Croc SLAMS to the groud in the battle field. EVeryone is listening to Vivi. She says the nightmare has finally ended.

The King thanks Luffy. FEED ME. Oh, he says "no problem" actually. The tomb is still collapsing.

Overall: EPICPEICPEICPIC


NARUTO EPISODE 126: SHOWDOWN: GAARA VS. KIMIMARO!

Oh god this will be so epic.

Rock steps up to fight... He runs... Gaara stops him with the sand. He says he will do it. He remembers what he did to Rock.

Gaara sends sand at Kimi... dodged. Bone bullets... Gaara just stands there and lets the bullets hit the sand, epic animation as Kimi dodges.

Sand Shower... KIMI IS TRAPPED. Gaara can create sand out of lots of different things. He has Kimi surrounded by sand. SAND BURIAL! Gaara says this guy has the same eyes as Sasuke, ones that want to verify their existence.

Naruto is following Sasuke, and starting to have weird visions.

Now we get Kimi flashbacks, he was locked up his whole life it seems. He didn't understand why. Then one day he was let out. "The time has come to use you". Kimi uses his curse marks to break out of the sand.

Kimi says he wont be caught by the sand again... SAND TSUNAMI by Gaara! WHOA! Badass animation yet again. Kimi starts to dodge... but he gets caught! Gaara is so damn badass. Kimi gets sent flying into tree or something. What a move. A whole damn square mile is filled with sand now. GIANT SAND BURIAL! He sends shockwaves through all the sand he just made! Dayuuuum. That is one hell of a move.

Another flashback. They ordered him on a mission to attack a village. OH MAN, he came across Zabuza and Haku on his way... thats funny.

As he went to attack, he attacked Orochi, thinking he was from the Mist. Orochi seemed to like the look of him.

They got surrounded in the village by tons of forces. Kimi was great in the fight and was the lone survivor. Orochi found him again.

He goes to level 2 and emerges. He seems to look funny now.

Gaara goes for another Sand Coffin... He just keeps walking, DAMN. He looks like a damn beast now! He has a tail and everything! He runs for Gaara!!!

Overall: Hmmm, the fight here had great animation, but it was a bit too one-sided to be too exciting. Second half flashbacks weren't very compelling honestly. "OK" episode at best.


Naruto vs. One Piece: We will not have a 5-0 repeat performance! One Piece delivered an epic, intense climax. Naruto's fight had good animation, but I have a feeling it hasn't even gotten started yet. OP takes it. It might be in trouble until Naruto reaches filler though...

Episode 127[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 127: A FAREWELL TO ARMS! PIRATES AND A LITTLE JUSTICE

The rebels start getting angry again talking about how the royal army has fought dirty... Chaka is here! He tells the royal army to throw down their weapons.

IGARAM IS HERE! I was just wondering why he hadn't shown up yet. He tells the rebels to do the same. He was the boy who saw the fake king. He tells the story. Now Kohza is here, he says it was all set up. Everything was set up. Everyone finally drops their weapons.

Vivi starts looking for the Straw Hats... they are gone. Already walking away. Vivi runs after them and finds them. The king has Luffy on his back. He said Luffy saved him. He says he gave Luffy an antidote. King and Vivi walk off back to the square. Everyone literally passes out all at once XD.

Marines show up at the square. Tashigi strips Croc of all his priveleges. Everyone in BW is passed out... EXCEPT FOR BON CLAY! BON CLAY STILL STANDS! WHAT A BADASS!

Back at the square, everyone is mad at themselves. The king speaks! He says they must move on. Stand upon this war and live. Everyone is moved to tears by the speech. The war has finally ended.

Smoker is talking to some pink haired marine, who helped out. She will be taking the "rain ship" and Croc.

The marines find the Straw Hats all passed out. They want to arrest them now, but Tashigi yells at them, they don't understand, but she won't allow them to touch them. Aww yeah Tashigi got cool.

THE KUNG FU DUGONGS CELEBRATE THE RAIN AT THE GOING MERRY! YES DUGONGS! YES! BRING THEM WITH YOU STRAW HATS PLEASE.

Toto looks up at the rain, pure joy on his face.

At night, the crew is all resting in the castle, with Vivi watching over them.

Tashigi makes it back to the marine ship. Where pink hair "hina" and smoker are waiting. Smoker says he heard about what she did with Straw Hat. Tashigi apologizes... Smoker says he doesn't care. That was her justice. Man, I like how right after I bashed Tashigi for sucking, she got awesome. Tashigi cries because she could not really do nothing... Smoker calls her an idiot, if the tears are so painful, become stronger. She vows to become stronger.

Call from HQ. They are gonna give Smoker and Tashigi medals and a promotion for taking down Croc... Croc says that he stated clearly it was the Straw Hats, but is ignored. Hina says the world government is going to cover up that pirates saved the day. They don't want to glorify pirates. Hina says just to accept it, but SMOKER REFUSES. He has a message for those OLD GEEZERS at the world gvt.

Smoker: TELL THEM TO EAT SHIT!

Haw Haw! Smoker, ULTIMATE BADASS.

Overall: OP always does "arc wrap up" episodes extremely well, and this was no different, really fun/interesting episode the whole way. They even managed to develop Tashigi and Smoker some more.


NARUTO EPISODE 127: VENGEFUL STRIKE! THE BRACKEN DANCE!

Sheesh, feels like I've done so many eps >_>. This is what happens when you have no homework tbh. The Naruto OP has changed in the last few episodes, to denote that Rock isn't a cripple anymore, and that Gaara and crew are here, which is pretty cool.

Sand strikes from Gaara on a charging Kimi... not working! Sand shield... busted! Kimi just pwned Gaara! But Gaara is OK. Now ROCK ATTACKS! He gets nailed by a tail, Gaara saved him from getting too badly damaged. Nice. Rock realizes he will just be a hindrance now.

Ewww, Kimi takes out his whole spinal column. Looks pretty sharp. The bone wraps around Gaara, sand protects him but he still looks trapped. Gaara uses Ultimate defense now.

Orochi and Kabuto are talking about Kimi. He only has so long he can last out there before he is done.

Kimi throws a bone spear at the shield. The sand appears to be stopping it. The bone spear breaks! Go Gaara!

More Kimi flashbacks. He kicked the sound 4's asses. He says even if he dies, his clan will still live, insideof Orochimaru. Gaara calls it Orochi's brainwashing, and calls Kimi a pitiful guy. He doesn't even say it with anger, just as a statement of fact, Gaara is so badass.

Quicksand by Gaara now. Apparently he doesn't have tons of Chakra left. He must end it here. Kimi sinks into the sand. Erm, he did it, he buried Kimi underground. I somehow doubt thats it.

Now... BRACKEN DANCE. Bones appear all over the sand. Gaara gets Rock and himself away via floating sand. The whole area is covered in bones now, dayum.

More flashbacks. Orochi, Kabuto, and Kimi planning the destruction of leaf. "Good times". "bezt friendz foreverzz". Kimi vows he will discover the truth of this world with Orochi.

KIMI IS BEHIND GAARA! OROCHI UNDERSTANDS HIM! HE STRIKES... he stops within inches of Gaara. Kimi is bleeding. Kimi is dead it seems.

Orochi realizes this, and doesn't care. : (

Gaara shares some life lessons. He is interesting. I like good guy Gaara.

Naruto catches up with Sasyke. They are no top of some giant statues...

Overall: Eh, kind of a meh episode. The fight was a bit anti-climatic, and the flashbacks weren't that great. Only awesome part was GOOD GUY GAARA.

Naruto vs. One Piece: Naruto was kind of a "blah" episode here. I didn't care for the fight or flashbacks that much. OP meanwhile, was a pretty satisfying episode from start to finish. OP takes it.

Episode 128[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 128: OPERATION ESCAPE ALABASTA

Chopper is making medicine inside the castle. Some doctor spots him...

Doctor: You are so talented! I'm very impressed! Chopper: *while being obviously pleased with the compliment* Shut up and get the hell away from me asshole!

XD. Such a strange personality quirk, but so awesome.

Zoro is training, he wants to be able to duplicate his strength in that fight at any time.

Marines are at the castle gates asking if they are harboring pirates, and they want to come in. Chaka won't let them in though, and asks for proof. Oh gosh, reminds me so much of cops coming to college parties >_>.

They meet Igaram's wife, the chef, she looks just like him >_>. She says she "won't be beat by some youngster's stomach", meanwhile Luffy vows to eat 3 days worth of food, to make up for the meals he missed while sleeping <____<. We know have an amazing scene of Luffy eating everything in sight, and stealing everything off other people's plates, oh god, classic. Now Usopp and Chopper and Zoro get drunk, PARTY TRICKS! Everyone has a great time!

Oh god, naked Luffy and Usopp bath time >_>. They all peek at the girls bathroom... Nami flashes them all, and I think intends to charge them 100,000 for that >_>. Now the king thanks everyone for his country, and bows his head, thanking everyone. Igaram says a king shouldn't do that, but Cobra says he's doing it as a man, and as a father who lives here. It's humorous because they are all naked >_>.

Igaram and Chaka get new bounty posters. HOLY SHIT! Luffy's bounty is up to 100 mill, Zoro now has his own poster, 60 mill. WTF. What was Luffy's before? Igaram says even Admirals will be hunting them with these bounties.

Erm, apparently Jango is a marine now >_>. They have some 30 ship fleet here. I assume for Luffy. The marines say the Going Merry is gone, but theres no way the Straw Hats left. Hmmm. DUGONG ACTION?

Luffy and crew are riding the duck squad back to the ship. Nami is depressed about leaving Vivi... oh she is depressed because she turned down the billion dollars she was offered >_>.

Igaram shows up in Vivi's room and freaks out about the bounties... but Vivi seems to not think it's a big deal, which confuses Igaram.

FLASHBACK to earlier that day. They got a call from a "Bon-chan". IT WAS BON CLAY! LOL! OMG! HE IS SO GONNA JOIN THE STRAW HAYS! I CAN FEEL IT! He says he took their ship. But he also says THEY GOT IT ALL WROOOONG, they are friends! They were about to leave and get the boat from Bon Clay... and beat him up... Nami says in 12 hours they will swing past the Eastern Harbor. That will be her last chance to jump aboard. I'm pretty sure she doesn't, thanks Mumei. Ass. Vivi realizes she will never have a chance like this again...

They meet up with Bon Clay. He says "some day, let us meet again". Bon Clay tells them about the marines, and Bon Clay says he protected the ship by taking it. Luffy doesn't understand why... Bon Clay says BECAUSE WE'RE FRIENDS! LUFFY, USOPP, CHOPPER AND BON CLAY DANCE! YES YES YES!!! HE'S GONNA JOIN! I KNOW IT!

Zoro points out that with the blockade, Bon Clay probably couldn't leave and needed their help... Bon Clay admits it... AND SAYS THEY MUST COMBINE FORCES, THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP! YEAAAH! WAIT, now Bon Clay's ship appears once they agree to help. DAMN IT ;_;. STAY ON LUFFY'S SHIP.

The Going Merry has been spotted, Hina is preparing for BATTLE.

Overall: BON CLAAAY! This wasn't an eventful episode, but it was fun. The future of the crew is very interesting, Bon Clay maybe could join? Vivi has a solid offer to join... WHO WILL JOIN?


NARUTO EPISODE 128: A CRY ON DEAF EARS:

Sasuke turns to face Naruto. CURSE MARKS! He calls Naruto an idiot, SUPER COOL BRO. Also, one of Sasuke's eyes are all different. Naruto freaks out and remembers their times together, including Sasuke calling them precious comrades. Naruto asks why he became like this. Sasuke says he's done with the leaf, go home.

Now Naruto remembers all the sacrifices everyone made for them to catch up to Sasuke. He says so, Sasuke doesn't care. ANGRY NARUTO. YES! Sasuke is walking away... NARUTO POUNCES! TACKLE! MOUNT! PUNCH! KICK HIS ASS PLZ!

Sasuke says he needs to get stronger, he is going to Orochi. Naruto says Orochi just wants his body as a vessel. He doesn't care about that either... damn. Naruto says he'll take him back to leaf by force if he must. They are having their entire conversation with Naruto in the mount position, slightly awkward >_>.

Sasuke now lifts Naruto up by his neck. Then drops him... and punched him in the gut. Ouch. Naruto goes flying into the river nearby. Sasuke can't believe his new power. He likes it.

Naruto, who is underwater, realizes Sasuke isn't the same. More flashbacks... damn.

Naruto runs at Sasuke....PUNCH, misses, kick by Sasuke connects. Sad music is playing. I'm starting to feel the intensity. Sasuke left because Leaf made him weak.

Flashback of kid Sasuke watching Itachi train. Sasuke tried it too and hurt his ankle. He seemed pretty close to his brother. He wanted to do well so his father would like him more or something.

More epic music, Naruto strikes, throws a kunai, Sasuke throws one back, both dodged. A special kunai strike... replacement jutsu by Naruto. Now Sasuke uses that tight string to trap Naruto. FLAME JUTSU... GOES DOWN THE STRINGS! EXPLOSION!

Overall: On one hand, it's tough to buy into Sasuke and Naruto ever having a friendship, they really only had a few moments together, so this betrayal doesn't feel as EVIL as it should. But anyway, I like the Naruto-Sasuke scenes so far mostly, good music choices especially, but this episode really got hampered down by flashbacks, both old and new. OK episode. Not too great.

Naruto vs. One Piece: Naruto had a way more important episode than One Piece here, and usually that gives you an advantage, but I really didn't care for the execution of this Naruto. Meanwhile, OP was just a fun episode, and the future of the crew got me interested. OP takes it here. Hopefully Naruto-Sasuke improves.

Episode 129[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 129: VIVI TELLS OF HER ADVENTURS!

Igaram has a nightmare about Vivi saying she was gonna be the Pirate Queen. He freaks the hell out XD. He really is like a daddy, it's funny. He runs to her room, but she is just getting dressed for her big speech.

This is her "coming of age" ceremony, which she never got to have when she was 14. All of Alabasta will be able to see it or hear it.

The ship is getting attacked by marines. They can only protect so much of the ship. They have them surrounded and are hitting the ship. Luffy asks Jango what he is doing, he says he "has his reasons", he is about to do hypnotism... USOPP FIRES THE CANNON, HE HITS! HE CAN'T BELIEVE IT! GO NOSE-CHAN GO! Now they discover Hina is on the way. Bon-chan says they must go ASAP.

Luffy says they can't go, they must be at the eastern harbor at noon. Luffy says they will see a friend. Bon Clay seems moved... HE REFUSES TO RUN AWAY! THAT IS NOT THE WAY OF THE CLAY!

Vivi sits Cobra and Igaram down, she has something to tell them...

The Duck ship and Going Merry split up. THE WHOLE STRAW HAT CREW IS ABOARD BON CLAY'S SHIP. Everyone goes after Bon Clay's ship.. IT WAS A BON CLAY TRAP! CLAY IS THE MAN! HE IS STRAW-CHAN'S FRIEND!

Bon Clay: *rose petals float down from the sky* One may stray from the path of a man, one may stray from the path of a woman, But there is no straying from the path of a HUMAN! All friends must scatter into the sky of truth anbd blossom!

BEST SPEECH EVER. THE MARINES ARE IN AWE! EVERYONE IS CRYING! HINA HUMILIATED! BON CLAYS TROOPS ATTACK! YESSS! GO CLAYS! GO! BON-CHAN! CANNONS EXPLODE EVERYWHERE. LUFFY AND CREW ARE CRYING. THEY WILL NEVER FORGET YOU BON CLAY!

Flashback of when Igaram and Vivi decided to infiltrate Baroque Works. Igaram didn't want her involved...

Vivi addresses Alabasta. She talks about meeting the Straw Hats, meanwhile, we see the Straw Hats fighting off marines. As the speech goes on, they make it to the spot. They can hear her speech. Sanji says she isn't coming... LOL THE SPEECH GIVER IS ACTUALLY IGARAM! SHE IS HERE! SHES AT THE MEETING SPOT! WAIT... WHAT. SHE'S HERE TO SAY GOODBYE ;_;. NOOOOO. Vivi cries ;_; ;_;. If they ever meet again... Vivi asks if she will still be their nakama. Luffy wants to scream yes, but Nami stops him. If they prove association with her, she will become a criminal... They all turn their backs to her, and show off their X's on their arms. CARUE AND VIVI SHOW OFF THEIRS TOO! "The left arm is proof we are friends".

Now the marines start firing, but Luffy and crew continue to raise their arms. Badass.

Overall: I knew Vivi wasn't gonna join because Mumei sux ;_;. But man, this was great, great ending, AND BON CLAY IS THE BEST EVER!


NARUTO EPISODE 129: BROTHERS: DISTANCE AMONG THE UCHIHA

Wow, another new OP!

NARUTO EMERGES FROM THE FLAMES!! PUNCH TO SASUKE! Sasuke... is unaffected. Wow. Another punch, Sasuke smiles. He says Naruto doesn't have enough strength or desire. PUNCH BY SASUKE! FLYING MID AIR KICKS! Naruto gets knocked to the ground. DAYUM.

Back to that flashback from last episode, Itachi is carrying Sasuke. Sasuke learns that the Uchihas created the "police force" of the Leaf. Thats what Sasuke's dad runs.

They run into Sasuke's dad, he wants to talk to them. He says he is going on Itachi's mission tomorrow. If he can complete it, he will make it into the Anbu Black Ops. This was supposed to be Sasuke's entrance ceremony day for the academy. MY DAD NEVER CAME TO MY BASEBALL GAMES ;_; Naruto style, I suppose.

Itachi saw how upset Sasuke was... he said he wasn't doing the mission. He was going to the academy for Sasuke's thing. He seems like a nice guy back then, but Sasuke also says he's a bit distant.

At entrance day, the teachers talk about how great Itachi was. A true genius it seems. Sasuke has big shoes to fill. Sasuke works hard, his goal always is to become as good as his bro, and get his father's approval. Sasuke did good on his first report card, but instead of his dad saying "thats my boy", he said "be like you bro".

Sasuke mentions this to his bro. Itachi talks to him. Now some ANGRY ninja show up, they are pissed that Itachi didn't go to some assembly, he went on a mission instead. His father told him to go to this assembly. But I guess he didn't.

The police force is launching an investigation. Some other Uchiha killed himself yesterday during the assembly. And he had a will... they mention that its easy to copy handwriting with the Sharingan. We aren't told what it says. Itachi gets pissed. He says just come out and say they suspect him. He beats their asses, and tells them not to judge... the police guys say the guy who died had been investigating him, since Itachi had grown strange. Itachi seems to be tired of being a part of the Uchiha clan.

Sasuke tells Itachi to stop... and now Itachi gets on his knees and apologizes. He says he didn't kill the guy. Sasuke's dad says he will take responsibility and monitor him. Sasuke saw something strange in his eyes even as he apologized. I wonder if he truly did care about him, and thats why he left him alive.

Overall: I gotta say, I enjoyed this episode. We saw Itachi destroy the Uchihas, but we never saw why. This flashback is starting to give us some answers, Itachi is a fascinating guy. Good ep.

Naruto vs. One Piece: Naruto was a good episode, thanks to Itachi being very interesting. However, it went up against a VERY memorable OP which had like at least 2-3 classic moments. OP takes it, even though Naruto was better than expected. And OP cuts the lead to under 10 once again!

Naruto: 69

Episode 130[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 130: BEWARE HER SCENT! THE SEVENTH ONE IS NICO ROBIN!

It's weird that I have no idea what island they are going to next. The route to Alabasta was planned for such a long time. It's so weird for them not to have an overall objective! It's been so long since we've been at a point like this in the show!

Some random Bon-Clay guy attacks Hina. She has a "cage" ability. She can lock people up with a punch or something weird.

We now get clips of the new Alabasta. King gives a speech to the people. Chaka is at Pell's grave (it's sad that I'm still waiting for him to pop out of that grave >_>).

And Luffy and crew are escaping from the marines.

More clips of the saved Alabasta, with music. We see Kohza, Toto, the sand pirates. KUNG FU DUGONGS TRAINING! The pervert crab. The casino is closed, people are going to Yuba to help restore it, and fix other parts of Alabasta. EYELASHES IS GONNA JOIN THE SPOT BILLED DUCKS XD. OMG PELL IS STILL ALIVE. HE WAS JUST LEAVING SOME DOCTOR. LOL. I CALLED IT. I CALLED IT. LOL.

Luffy throws a bunch of spears at the marines and pwns them.

Vivi heads back to Alubarna with Carue... awww. I hope we see them again one day. Seriously, LOL Pell. LOL.

Smoker says soon they will be setting out after the Straw Hats...

Everyone but Zoro is crying about Vivi. They miss her. Zoro says they should have taken her by force then >_____>... NICO IS ON THE SHIP! WTF! I KNEW I FORGOT ABOUT SOMEONE! ZORO IS READY TO FIGHT HER! EVERYONE EXCEPT SANJI IS READY TO FIGHT. Umm, she just walks by and relaxes >_>. She says Luffy put her through a lot or something.

SHE WANTS TO JOIN! WHAT! WHAT!

Flashback, Nico gave the king the poison for Luffy's wounds. The king asked why she lied, that tablet does not have the history of Alabasta. It has the location of the weapon. She says she never intended to give Croc the weapon... she wanted to find the "Rio Poneglyph". She wanted "The True History". This was her only lead, and it was worthless. She was ready to die there as the tomb collapsed. LUffy then woke up, and carried the king and Nico out. Nico said she had no reason to live, and to put her down, but Luffy said he had no reason to listen to her.

Nico: You made me live when I wanted to die. I have nowhere to go. So, are you going to let me stay? Luffy: I get it... Guess that's that! Okay!

XD. So easy. Luffy says she isn't a bad person.

Nico says she is from a long line of archeaologists. She became wanted by the government at age 8. For 20 years she has been hidden from society. Usopp asks what her speciality is...

Nico: Assassination <3

Usopp concludes she is too dangerous to hire, but Luffy and Chopper are too busy having fun with her hand tricks XD. Nami says theres no reason for them to join. She doesn't trust her... NICO HAS SOME OF CROC'S JEWELS! NAMI NOW TRUSTS HER!

Now it's just Zoro and Usopp who don't trust her! USOPP IS DOWN! HE LOVES THE HAND TRICKS! XD. Only Zoro now doesn't like Nico!

Nico goes to talk to Zoro... he wonders what she is planning.

Pell finds his own grave >____>.

Overall: Hmmm, so Nico is now a member. Very interesting. Obviously she is winning people over quick, but it'll be interesting to see how a bond forms with someone who is a bit heartless/evil at times. Thats kinda cool that they teased Bon Clay and Vivi joining, then after the disappointment of neither joining, Nico shows up. Nice. Good ep.


NARUTO EPISODE 130: FATHER AND SON, THE BROKEN CREST:

Sasuke uses the Sharingan now. Shadow clones by Naruto. Sasuke kicks their asses, then says he can spot the real body in an instant with Sharingan. He grabs Naruto now, and lands a combo. FIRE BALL...

Flashback >_>. Sasuke is wondering about Itachi's eyes. The sharingan looked different that time. Things are still a bit awkward between Itachi and his dad. Sasuke tell shis dad class is boring, so his dad teaches him the fire ball jutsu. Thats pretty neat, because I remember Kakashi saying way back that he was pretty young to already know that. Sasuke doesn't do it very well, and his father says "sure enough, it won't be as easy as it was with Itachi." Jerk ass. Sasuke now works on it all night, and for the next few days. He seems to have mastered it.

He goes to dear old dad to show him. He does it! His dad walks away... then says "thats my boy". He also says not to chase after his brother anymore.

At dinner, Sasuke asks his mom what dad really thinks of him and Itachi. He thinks he might just be replacement for big bro. His mom says he really does care, it's just as supervisor of clan work, Itachi does more, since he is older. But when they are alone, he talks about Sasuke all the time. Sasuke seems pleased.

One day Sasuke asks Itachi to help him with training. Itachi says he can't, but he pokes him on the forehead like he always did. So he thinks he is still the same.

Sasuke asks his dad about there being a level about the Sharingan. His dad says yes, the Mangekyo Sharingan. It's legendary, only a few have ever done it. Only opened up under a particular condition. Hmm.

Sasuke asks why Itachi doesn't care about him. His dad says he is a bit peculiar. Itachi doesn't care for making friends.

Sasuke vowed to be just as good.

Naruto barely dodged the fireball. Sasuke attacks again, and lands a punch. More punches are blocked... BUT NOW ONE NAILS NARUTO IN THE CHEST! He goes flying into the water.

Overall: I enjoyed this flashback. This one concentrated more on Sasuke than Itachi, but that was fine, because young Sasuke isn't a bad character at all. Through Sasuke we learned a bit more about Itachi, and his parents too. Good stuff.

Naruto vs. One Piece: One Piece just can't get itself to truly narrow that gap! This episode was just like, showing the new Alabasta mostly. Then Nico shows up out of nowhere. It was a great twist, but in terms of as a moment, it wwas almost too out of nowhere to be truly an awesome moment. I love when they did the usual thing of someone slowly deciding to be a crew member. Nico was pretty badass, but yeah, I actually really liked these Naruto flashbacks so far. Lots of interesting characters, Naruto takes it.

ONE PIECE RANKINGS[]

Arc Rankings

1. Alabasta- Sheesh, while Arlong is my #1, I never felt like it was a truly classic arc, so I'm glad something finally passed it. Alabasta had like 4 arcs building towards it, then the arc itself was over 30 episode. If it wasn't #1 there would be a problem!

2. Arlong

3. Whiskey Peak

4. Little Garden

5. Drum Island

6. Kuro

7. Baratie

8. Loguetown

9. Laboon

10. Buggy

11. Morgan

12. Apis

Character Rankings

1. Luffy- It's tough for him not to be #1!

2. Chopper- Still hilarious, and super adorable!

3. Usopp- CONTROVERSIAL. I don't care, Usopp has the best interactions with every character, is hilarious, and his fights tend to have that "Shikamaru" quality to them. And come on, he invented a weapon that was more for parties than fighting!

4. Zoro- Slowly getting passed up, but he still is a super badass, and has some awesome moments. He always seems to put on some of the best fights.

5. Ace- If we got to see him 24/7, he could just surpass Luffy! Too bad. Not bad at all considering all his appearances were pretty much "filler".

6. Sanji- Becoming more of an intellectual badass, which is great, but his interactions with women kind of hold him back.

7. Bon Clay- Considering I don't think we'll see him for a while, he'll probably be off of here within a season or 2, but by god. As a villain he was hilarious as hell, and as a good guy, he was even better. Badass.

8. Smoker- Badass marine. Kind of an interesting character in a weird way too. Him going after Luffy again, despite knowing he is good is weird. But, no denying he is a badass.

9. Nico Robin- We still haven't learned tons about her, but there's no denying she is badass as hell.

10. Carue- BADASS DUCK. I'll miss you bro ;_;.

Alabasta Fight Rankings

1. Luffy vs. Croc- Epic as hell, no denying.

2. Zoro vs. Mr. 1- Zoro gets his ass kicked for a while, then RAWR. The ending was really atmospheric and cool.

3. Usopp/Chopper vs. Mr. 4 and MC- Out of the other 4 "preliminary fights", this actually got the most time, and was really fun from start to finish.

4. Nami vs. Doublefinger- Really funny early on, when it came to action, it kind of lacked, but it was decently enjoyable.

5. Sanji vs. Bon Clay- Disappointed me for sure. There was some awesome animation at times, but for the most part I thought it ended too suddenly, never had a great story behind it either.

Episode 131[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 131: THE FIRST PATIENT! ANECDOTE OF THE RUMBLE BALL

OP 3 is weird... the song is definitely the weakest IMO. And so is the video stuff. I'd have to rewatch Wonderland and We Are to figure out which is best out of those, both are good.

When I think about it, One Piece, and especially the Grand Line, fits really well into fillers. They can just go to islands basically. Then again, you could say the same about Naruto, they just need a mission. But we'll see how it goes.

Nami see that they are approaching an island. It seems smal, and pretty. They find lots of fruit that they can stock up on, Sanji says it is like a cook's paradise. Chopper is gonna guard the ship, Nami is gonna map the island, everyone else is gonna gather fruit. Umm, where the hell is Nico >_>. Everyone seems to have forgotten about her. Chopper, who thinks he is alone, starts giving out orders and acting like he is the Captain, then he discovers Nico, lol. He freaks out, I guess he doesn't trust her. He hides from her. Chopper decides to make some rumble balls. He is reminded of the first time he made one. He kind of did it on accident, and then he realized what they could do. Chopper is talking to himself about the rumble balls, Nico listens in, he freaks out when she sees him, and he eats a rumble ball >_>.

Nico ends up tickling him and calling him cute. CHOPPER BLUSHES AND CALLS HER AN asshole. I love that gimmick.

Oh manz. Nico gets sexy porno jazz for her theme music in the middle part of the show.

Everyone is shown collecting fruit and stuff. Nico and Chopper go to get the water. Nico seems to be enjoying her new lifestyle. Nico asks about this "doctorine". Chopper tells Nico his past with her. Hilarious training segments with Chopper and Doctorine. One day, DOctorine randomly passed out when Chopper saying he was ready to finally compound medicine. Kureha says she got sick from another patient. She can be his first patient. She will give no advice. If he fails, she dies... awesome.

Chopper works hard on medicine for her. He gives her the medicine, she doesn't even ask what it is. She gets better! And compliments him, the only compliment he ever received from her. But he realized that she trusted him with her life, and he will always remember that.

Nico says she wishes she had someone to write to, like he does.

At night, they eat. Nami says they haven't had a day this peaceful in a while. Luffy asks Chopper what he did... Chopper looks at Nico, and says he didn't do much, but it was a great day!

Overall: I actually really enjoyed this ep. After the hecticness of Alabasta, it's almost nice to just watch the crew relax and have a good time. It kind of makes the show as a whole more realistic too, I mean, not every day is super crazy and full of adventure! Also, I really liked the interactions between Chopper and Nico, and the Chopper flashback, good ep.


NARUTO EPISODE 131: THE SECRETS OF THE MANGEKYO SHARINGAN!

I really need to listen to and rank all the OPs when I do my arc ending rankings.

Sasuke flashback time once again. This is where he discovers his whole clan destroyed. Sasuke realizes Itachi did it. The impact of him killing his mom is strengthened after finding out how nice she really is. Itachi uses the Mangekyo to make him see everything. It's ridiculous to know I'm gonna have to wait hundreds of eps probably to see a true Itachi-Sasuke showdown. Sasuke runs away crying, lawl. Itachi blocks his path.

Itachi says he acted like the big brother Sasuke wanted in order to measure him. He has the potential to be an opponent for him one day, in order for him to once again measure his vessel. He will let him live since someday Sasuke could use the Mangekyo Sharingan. So essentially, he is letting him live because one day he might be strong enough for Itachi to beat his ass, and it not to be too easy? Badass.

Itachi says he might be able to get the Mangekyo if he kills his closest friend, just like he did. Wow. It all comes full circle. He tells Sasuke where he can find the secret to the Mangekyo. Only 2 people have ever had it, he would be the 3rd.

Sasuke woke up in a hospital, and ran back to his clan's village. It was taped off. The place is a wreck. Sad music plays as the rain falls. He explores the village and remembers various times. He sees the police tape around their bodies, and falls to the ground.

He goes to the spot where the secret of the mangekyo is and learns the secret. This is around when he becomes a loner/emo/"badass". He vows to kill Itachi.

Naruto makes his way out of the river. Naruto realizes Sasuke is fighting with full strength. Naruto asks if they are still comrades. Sasuke says Naruto became his closest friend. Which is all the reason why he has to do this. Naruto doesn't understand, but he does understand that Sasuke wants to fight him at full strength! Both charge each other!

Overall: First part was kind of lame, but the second part was really good, and very sad. Mangekyo is interesting.

Naruto vs. One Piece: lol controversial. I really enjoyed Chopper and Nico, and Chopper's backstory. I also really liked the laid back pace of the episode. Meanwhile, the first half of Naruto was something I had already seen, the 2nd half was definitely good, and sad. But it was something i had heard about so much, the impact has been taken away just a bit. Mangekyo was interesting, but I just gotta give OP this episode.

Naruto: 70

Episode 132[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 132: THE NAVIGATOR MUTINY! FOR AN UNWAVERING DREAM!

Now that I know what this arc is all about, Im actually really looking forward to more. I'm already starting to like Hikari E more, though I still don't care for the actual video. I decided I'll start including OP rankings after this season. There was only 2 to rank till now >_>.

Another pretty laid back day it seems. The crew is fishing, Zoro is training. Nico is reading. A lazy day. Luffy grabs something huge when fishing. It looks like a squid or something, but it's actually a submarine type thing I guess. There is a salesman of some sort inside. He has been lost at sea. Everyone starts playing with his workout equipment >_>. Usopp, Chopper, and Luffy are of course enthralled.

Nami is interested in some special paper. The salesman detects THE URGE TO BUY. So he's gonna make her pay a lot. HE WILL LET HER HAVE 1000 PAPERS FOR 48 MILL. DONT DO IT NAMI.

Sanji ties up Luffy, and says he will buy it. He is willing to hand over Luffy for the paper, lawl. Oh god, salesman realizes he is on a pirate ship now and freaks out... XD. He runs away. And he left his stuff! Including the paper and exercise gear, teehee.

Nami now demands to work alone all day. She says to call her if the clouds change at all. I guess she is gonna use the paper to start making more maps. She wants to map Little Garden, Drum Island, and Alabasta. She has the data, she just needs to draw. She must complete her dream!

Nami flashback time. She learns about the wind from Bellemere. She discovers a lot of different weather elements come from the sea. She became very interested in the sea. She then decided to map the world.

The crew is screwing around and accidentally screws up Nami's map of the grand line. Nami gets super angry, and shoos them out. Everyone finally goes to sleep.

Chopper wakes up and sees a huge tornado on the water heading their way. Chopper is too scared to disturb her though, he cries, AWWWW. Nami finishers her map, and sees the storm, she gets the crew to work. She can't have her map get screwed up by the waves. And they make it out! She goes back to work on the maps, and she tells them to keep watching the clouds. Nico was reading during that whole storm >_>.

Overall: Not nearly as good as the last episode. The salesman part kinda sucked, Nami flashback wasn't as good as Chopper's. A few funny parts, but pretty meh episode.


NARUTO EPISODE 132: FOR A FRIEND

Kakashi finds out about Sasuke, and how only rookies went after him. Kakashi sees Sakura, he says to leave this to him. Kakashi summons his dog guy again... WAIT A WHOLE PACK OF DOGS! AWESOME! THEY ALL LOOK SO BADASS! He sends them to find Naruto and Sasuke. He says to call him when they find them. Badass. Kakashi says he was too naive. He runs off to find them as well.

NARUTO AND SASUKE CHARGE! TEST OF STRENGTH! Sasuke says this will be settles for real. Kunais at each other, blocked. Sasuke lands a kick... CHIDORI POWERED UP. Shadow Clone by Naruto. RASENGAN POWERED UP! YES. THEY CHARGE! NARUTO THROWS HIMSELF INTO THE RUN! Come on Naruto! Come on! They are running on the water... The moves collide! EXPLOSION! Both get sent flying backwards. Sasuke can't believe Naruto can counter his Chidori.

Sasuke remembers that he can only use Chidori twice. Naruto is upset about Sasuke's intention to kill him.

Sasuke says he needs to create an opening for the Chidori. CURSE MARK UP! He calls Naruto naiv[e. Phoenix fire jutsu! Naruto dodges... SASUKE GETS BEHIND HIM! PUNCH!

Naruto inner monologue. Naruto says he was relieved that there was a guy who was all alone just like him. He always wanted to approach him, but he was never able to.

Sasuke lands a huge punch to the gut as sad music plays.

Naruto instead decided to call Sasuke his rival, since he was called a loser, they were very different. He was never able to say that he was striving to be just like him.

Another punch... CHIDORI IS CHARGED. Naruto says they've always known that they were friends, without saying anything.

FOXIFIED NARUTO! SASUKE ATTACKS, Naruto wonders if it was just him thinking they were friends. He thinks he's pretty lame for thinking they were friends. At the end of the day, Naruto always had to walk home alone, no family or friends... he sometimes saw Sasuke alone too. He doesn't want him to be taken away by Orochi.

The Chidori is cutting through Naruto's body. Naruto diverted it from the heart using his left hand. But now he still has a hole through him, plus, he can't make hand signs anymore, according to Sasuke. WHAT FOXIFIED NARUTO GRABS SASUKE'S HAND, HE IS CRUSHING IT! SASUKE BACKS OFF! THE RIVER IS GOING CRAZY! IT'S THE FOX BABY! SWEET FLUTE MUSIC! SASUKE YOU ARE SO BONED. NARUTO'S SHOULDER HEALS INSTANTLY. HAHAHA YESSSSS. YESSSSS. NARUTO SLOWLY LOOKS UP, BADASS BADASS BADASS. FOX FACE! FOX FACE! YES YES YES! NARUTO WILL NOT LET OROCHI TAKE SASUKE AWAY! HE WILL STOP HIM EVEN IF HE HAS TO BREAK EVERY BONE IN HIS BODY!!!

Overall: FOX NARUTO! YES YES YES YES! Kind of a slow start, but the flashbacks got better and so did the fight near the end.

Naruto vs. One Piece: Naruto still hasn't gotten great, but things are heating up. Meanwhile, for OP, while I enjoy the concept of Dreams, the execution this time wasn't as good. Naruto takes it rather easily.

Episode 133[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 133: INHERITED RECRIPE! SANJI THE CURRY EXPERT

I'm really starting to like the OP 3 song, outside of the video anyway.

Sanji is cooking to start the ep. It's foggy out, but it looks like another mostly laid back day. Serene music is playing... and now they come across a ship, they are about to run into it. Oh wow, they are right in the middle of a fleet of marines. With the fog, they are hoping to sneak through. A kid/chef guy spots them and falls off the ship, but Robin uses her hands ability to save him.

When he wakes up, he tells them to stay back. Sanji brings him a soup. As a chef, he recognizes that it's a perfect soup. He gobbles it up. He is a marine trainee cook. He says Sanji could be a major chef.

The trainee cook says he spilled the curry for lunch. The head chef said to make some more then, but he can't get it right. He has only been a trainee cook for half a year, but only gets to wash dishes and peel vegetables. The curry he is making is for the top brass of the marines, he can't do it.

Sanji says to just tell the chef he can't do it. The trainee says if he does that, he will have to leave the ship. Luffy says can't he just find another ship. The trainee cook says he needs to be on the marine ship, because then he has a better chance of seeing ALL BLUE. Oh manz. Sanji was walking away, but stopped on All Blue. Just like Sanji, he was always laughed at, but he believes. He must stay on the marine ship to see it. Nami says since hes so determined, they should take him back. Sanji says he will do it. Luffy uses his rubber arms to latch on to a marine ship from far away.

Nami asks how long he will be, they have to be gone before the mist clears. He says he is just interested in marine culinary styles. Right Sanji, right. Luffy, Sanji, and trainee make it aboard the ship. Sanji orders Luffy to stay quiet and not make a sound. Sanji catches Luffy "exploring", but really he swiped food, Sanji makes him take it back >_>.

Sanji said aboard his old restaurant, he never was taught anything either. He just washed dishes. He learned he needed to start observing the chef's skills. The trainee realizes thats what he should be doing. He decides to try the curry. The trainee starts to recall bits and pieces he heard from the chef.

I like how Sanji claims that cooking can't be taught, but well, we have clips of the chef teaching everyone but the trainee how to cook >_>. Kind of a ridiculous statement. The kid keeps recalling things, and Sanji gives him a few hints, though not many. My favorite is when he lights his cig with the flame, to remind him that he might have it too hot. Seriously though, this chef is a jerk ass, he clearly taught everyone but this kid!

It's strangely enjoyable to watch the detailed process of this guy cooking. I get the feeling some of the anime guys enjoy cooking themselves.

After all that, the trainee tries it. He says it has no taste and freaks out. Sanji takes an apple and eats it, reminding him of the SECRET INGREDIENT. Meanwhile, Luffy gets spotted, so they have to leave. Sanji tells the kid that he also believes All Blue exists, and we get a rare smile about something other than girls from him. The kid gets very happy.

The crew sets sail ASAP because Luffy was spotted.

At the big marine brass meeting (I wonder how mnany of these characters we see for like 2 seconds will end up showing up later? If this was canon, I'd believe it, since it's filler, I'm not sure). The marines eat the curry. The brass likes it! No, they love it! The chef tells the kid to wash the dishes later. The kid spots the pirate ship fading away and smiles. He vows to keep becoming better!

Overall: This was a real fun episode. I enjoyed the storyline, and even watching the kid cook was fun, and the flashback was cool. Even if the concept of cooking somehow needing to be learned on your own is ridiculous. I liked this one a lot. Seriously, I can't believe I needed 2 parts for a filler ep >_>.


NARUTO EPISODE 133: A PLEA FROM A FRIEND

Sasuke wonders if Naruto is a monster. He asks who he is. Naruto says, he is his friend.

PUNCH! NARUTO LANDS! HES BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF SASUKE! GROUND POUND! HOLY CRAP NARUTO IS KILLING! NARUTO WITH A PRIMAL SCREAM! PRIMAL SCREAM MOTHA shitA! SUPER SPEED NOW! NARUTO TAKES THE HIGH GROUND! HIGH GROUND! LANDS A KICK! HIGH GROUND AGAIN, FIRE JUTSU BY SASUKE, NARUTO GOES THROUGH IT! HE GOES THROUGH IT! HE NAILS SASUKE! OMG OMG OMG. ANOTHER GROUND POUND! SASUKE IS SENT INTO THE WATER! NARUTO ATTACKS HIM TWICE IN THE WATER OMG! SASUKE IS OUT! NARUTO WITH ANOTHER PUNCH! HE GRABS HIM, AND THROWS HIM INTO A CLIFF! LOL! AWESOME! AWESOME!

He threatens to break every bone in his body, he says he will take him home. Sasuke says to shut up. Naruto was always alone, Sasuke lost the ones he loved and became alone, they are different. He feels more agony, Naruto has never felt that.

Sasuke grabs Naruto and tackles him off the cliff. THEY FACE OFF ON THE WATER, ON TOP OF LOGS! EPIC SLOW GUITAR SOLO! Naruto says that Sasuke is right. He says he sometimes imagines Iruka is his dad, he kind of knows what it's like to have one. He compares his relationship to Sasuke as a brother. Sasuke asks why Naruto goes so far for him. Naruto says it's because he's never had that before. He doesn't want to lose it. Sasuke has a sad face... he says it's too late, he can't go back. HE puts his leaf thing on. They face off on the water... Sharingan up. Sasuke will have to cut this tie. Sasuke is wearing the leaf thing to acknowledge that Naruto is strong. Naruto is strong because of solitude. Sasuke needs greater solitude to obtain greater strength. Sasuke claims Naruto won't be able to scratch his forehead. Sasuke says from now on, it's only fighting, COME!

NARUTO CHARGES! SASUKE THROWS A LOG! NARUTO BUSTS THROUGH IT! SLOW MOTION FOR SASUKE, HE CAN SEE THE ATTACKS COMING, HE BLOCKS THEM! NO! MORE DODGES FROM SASUKE! NARUTO SAYS HE CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE! Sasuke says he must be getting used to the curse marks. Sasuke lands some blows on Naruto! NO! EPIC MUSIC!

Sasuke says he can foresee Naruto's movements, they both charge, NARUTO GETS PUNCHED IN THE FACE. NO NO NO. Naruto gets sent into the water. He realizes Sasuke can read his movements.

Kakashi and his main dog seem to be on the trail, they know where Naruto and Sasuke are.

Sasuke stands on the water... SHADOW CLONES EMERGE! MORE! DOZENS! SASUKE FIGHTS THEM ALL OFF, WHY DOES SHADOW CLONE SUCH SO MUCH NOW! SASUKE IS DODGING ALL OF THEM, BADASS ANIMATION! Shit!

WAIT! NARUTO GRABBED SASUKE FROM UNDERWATER WHILE HE WAS DISTRACTED! WHAT! DID I JUST SEE... HUNDREDS OF NARUTOS ALL HOLDINGON TO EACH OTHERS LEGS? FIRE JUTSU BY SASUKE, stops the attack.

WHAT. NARUTO WAS HIT BY THE FIRE. NO NO NO. Sa...Sa..suk..ee...


SASUKE SAYS IT'S TOO LATE! NO! NO! HE DOES THE SASUKE PILEDRIVER INTO A CLIFF. NOOOOO. NOOOOO.NARUTO FALLS INTO THE WATER. NOOO DONT DIE NARUTO.

Sasuke almost looked... guilty there I think. OH GOSH. Naruto just entered the Fox's jail cell inside of his mind or something. The Fox calls him weak. He laughs. He says he better be grateful to him, and the fourth Hokage for sticking him with him...

Naruto is getting surrounded by chakra? NARUTO IS LEVITATED INTO THE AIR! OMGGG! FOX NARUTO! HE IS SUDDENLY BETTER! HE NAILS A PUNCH! WHAT? IS THE FOX POSSESSING NARUTO? NARUTO SCREAMS! WHAAAAAAAAAAT! WHAAAAAAT! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT! WHAAAAAAAAAAT! HE HAS A CHAKRA TAIL NOW? OMGGG. NARUTO IS CRAZY! NARUTO IS CRAZY! HE NAILS SASUKE! SASUKE GOES FLYING! NARUTO HAS CHAKRA THAT IS MOVING WITH ITS OWN WILL! YESSSSS. OMGGGG.

Sasuke now understands why his brother wants Naruto. FOX NARUTO RUNS ON THE WATER! HE DODGES FIREBALLS! A BIG ONE COMES AT HIM, EXPLOSION! HAW HAW LIKE THAT WOULD HURT NARUTO! THE CHAKRA IS PROTECTING HIM! NARUTO STARES AT HIM LIKE A BADASS! WHAT! THE CHAKRA HANDS ARE TRYING TO GRAB SASUKE! SO COOL! SASUKE IS BARELY DODGING. NARUTO POUNCHES! CHAKRA PUNCH! SASUKE IS SENT INTO A CLIFF AGAIN! SO COOL! SO COOL! SO COOL! SASUKE IS DOWN! HUGE CHAKRA HAND COMING FOR SASUKE! HE BARELY DODGES, BUT HE'S TRAPPED! YESSS! GET HIM!

CURSE MARKS BY SASUKE NOW. THE HAND GRABS HIM! HE IS SENT TOWARDS NARUTO! PUNCH! SASUKE GOES FLYING! YESSSS YESSS!

KAKASHI IS ON THE WAY, NO, DONT SCREW UP THIS FIGHT.

SASUKE IS DOWN! SASUKE IS DOWN! WHAT? HE IS... LAUGHING? He doesn't want to... BUT HE MUST! OMG NOOO. HE IS GOING TO LEVEL TWO CURSE MARKS. HAIR GROWS! OMG SASUKE AND NARUTO BOTH LOOK CRAZY! HOLY CRAP!

OVERALL: OMG OGMGOGM GMOMG

Naruto vs. One Piece: OMGOMGOMG. Two 2 post episodes! BUT NARUTO WAS WAY BETTER! BELIEVE IT! Man, I have to review the Naruto-Gaara episode to see which is better

Naruto: 72

One Piece: 61


Episode 134[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 134: I WILL MAKE IT BLOOM! MANLY USOPP EIGHT SHAKU BALL

When does OP4 start BTW? I feel like I missed out on a lot of the eps that this OP was shown for. I kinda hope it's a while till OP4, so I can hear this one a fair amount of times. This is a very... happy OP. Both the video and the song. Kinda strange for a shounen.

It's raining outside, which is pissing off Luffy. He wants to have fun. Seems like another laid back day. It's still pretty strange to see them just being laid back for so many eps. They have nothing important to do right now! Zoro spots an island. The crew lands. Zoro and I assume Robin will watch the ship as everyone else lands, and they spot a town.

They see a sign for a Fireworks Festival tonight. It's a 400 year tradition. Theres this old man and little girl who make all the fireworks. They work all year for this night. Usopp decides to check it out for gunpowder.

Last year, something strange happened I guess, but they don't find out about it.

Usopp makes it to the house, and sees the fireworks. They won't let him have any gunpowder. The girl is impressed with Usopp's fireworks that he has made though. They have some work to do still, and the grandpa orders Usopp to help >_>.

Usopp asks about the giant firework. Last year they tried to light it, but it failed... On this day last year, the girl's father and mother died from the firework being misfired. Wow. She doesn't seem upset though. She says if the rain clears up before nightfall, she will try and light off the big one. Usopp says thats a bad idea. But she wants to do it. She will fire it herself. Usopp goes to rat her out, and gets hit >_>. This is her mom and dad's dream. She gives Usopp the job of making sure her grandpa doesn't see whats going on >_>.

Turns out the guys that were gonna help her ratted her out. So she can't do it now. The girl runs away... Usopp sees this. Usopp says he has an idea involving the tower that is next to the house, it's been standing for 400 years...

The girl is crying at her mother and father's graves. Usopp now "makes the rain stop" (aka he knew when it would stop), and claims he is Usopp Angel <_<. He convinces her that it's OK for her to not light off the big firework.

FIREWORKS TIME. Usopp realized the tower was the secret to lighting off the big ball. He has it ready to go! They do the grand finale, the girl has no idea. Now, the old man lights off the big one! It's great! Looks like this is the first ep where they used obvious computer animation, for the fireworks. Crowd goes nuts for the big one. The girl looks happy.

Usopp can have all the gunpowder he wants!

Overall: This one wasn't as good as the Chopper or Sanji episodes, but it wasn't bad at all. No Usopp flashback was disappointing, but Usopp was still a badass. Decent stuff.


NARUTO EPISODE 134: THE END OF TEARS

Naruto seems unimpressed by this transformation. NARUTO CHARGES! HE STRIKES! Hm? Some weird big hand stopped the attack and then strikes Naruto. The hand came out of... Sasuke's back? Creepy.

Now he gets a second one. They are like creepy hand wings. Sasuke remembers the words that too much curse mark usage, and his body is screwed or something. Sasuke says he will have to be quick.

Naruto doesn't have any feeling in his left arm.

Sasuke says this place is called the final valley. A fitting place to be right now. Sasuke says this is the culmination of all their battles.

Flashback time. Normally I'd be annoyed, but this is a pretty good collection of the best Naruto-Sasuke moments.

Here we go. CHIDORI FROM SASUKE! OH MANZ. RASENGAN BY NARUTO! He did it without a clone to help him like usual, too. CMON NARUTO! They face off. NOW THEY COME AT EACH OTHER! EXPLOSION!

SASUKE MAKES IT THROUGH AND PUNCHES NARUTO IN THE CUT! NARUTO CUTS OPEN SASUKE'S HEADBAND!

Mountain pieces are flying all over the place. We see the 2 in mid-air, just staring at each other. SAD MUSIC. We see a clip of them smiling and shaking hands.

WHAT. NARUTO LOST? Naruto is on the ground, Sasuke stands above him. NOOOOOOOOO. Both are no longer transformed. Sasuke's leaf headband falls off and lands next to Naruto. Did Naruto not try to destroy Sasuke there? Did he only go for the forehead since Sasuke says he could never even scratch it?

Now the rain pours down.Sasuke looks up. His arm starts to hurt, he falls to his knees and spits blood. He stares at Naruto.

Kakashi and the dog make it to the spot. Kakashi only sees Naruto and Sasuke's headband. Kakashi looks sad. He picks up Naruto. He asks for forgiveness for not making it in time. He says Naruto must have made a desperate effort.

We see Sasuke walking away, very slowly, in pain. He has flashbacks of his family. And of knowing he could have the Mangekyo if he kills his closest friend.

Naruto wakes up... Sasuke looks back. I guess he knows he failed. He says he will surpass Itachi his own way, not Itachi's.

As Kakashi walks away, we see Itachi emerge from the ground. He says it has gotten interesting. Hmmm.

Overall: Very good episode. The battle had a pretty climatic ending, and then there was just this appropriate feeling of sadness for the rest of the episode. Damn. I have no idea what direction the show could be going.

Naruto vs. One Piece: Solid filler from OP, but Naruto was clearly better. Naruto really does just give you this intense feeling of sadness in that 2nd half.

Naruto: 73

One Piece: 61

Episode 135[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 135: THE WANDERING SWORDSMAN ZORO

They seem to be in another town. Zoro is walking.

We get a flashback. Pirate Hunters Yosaku and Johnny are in a bar. Theres pirates nearby, and they are debating if they should go for it. Zoro then walks in. He wants food... but he has no money. But he'll make some when he collects this bounty! The pirate attacks. Zoro fights him off from his seat and gets the bounty! He gets to eat!

Now the other bounty hunters come up to him. They see Zoro stole their mark. Zoro ignores them >_>. Zoro says he is not a bounty hunter, he just wants to be the greatest swordsman in the world. Zoro lets them have the bounty, and walks off.

Yosaku and Johnny cash it in, but Johnny seems depressed about it. He asks Yosaku why he became a bounty hunter. Johnny became one because a gang of bounty hunters saved his village from pirates.

Now someone named "Dick the Bandit" >___>, comes into town and raids it. The bandit says being weak is a sin... a little kid stands up to the bully. Im pretty sure one stubborn little kid always stands up to the bullies in OP, whats up with that >_>. The kid gets his ass slapped. Johnny decides to help out, he says the kid is just like he was.

Johnny attacks! He says today he is an ally of justice. He gets laughed at >_>. Yosaku says he will help. Johnny and Yosaku claim they took in a 5 million bounty earlier... thats the bandit's younger brother. Haw. He is pissed.

Zoro meanwhile, was having his swords repaired. He remembers his vow to become the strongest in the world. He doesn't have the money to pay this guy for his work. Then he realizes he can cash in another bounty in town, in the bandit.

Yosaku and Johnny are getting their asses beat. The bandit goes to finish them, but the kid interferes. Now all the loot is loaded, so the bandit decides to leave. Johnny still won't give up! He says sometimes you just know it's time to fight to the death. Johnny and Yosaku get beat up by the bandit's men. Zoro is here.

He blocks a finishing blow. He asks if he can take their target again >_>. Now Zoro picks up 2 random extra katanas, and everyone realizes he is the famous pirate hunter. Zoro always breaks his katanas... he is trying to figure out how he can use all the power of his katanas and not break them. Zoro pwns all the underlings. Now Zoro gets a gun fired right at his head...

AHHH, we go back to the present, Zoro was sleeping. Robin asks how he got the name Pirate Hunter. He doesn't know or care. She smiles.

The kid distracted the bandit with a bucket of water! The shot wasn't fired, Zoro won, and didn't break his katana! He thanks the kid for the help.

Yosaku and Johnny want to follow Zoro. He says "whatever makes you happy". Haw.

Overall: Kind of a meh flashback. Too much Yosaku and Johnny, not enough Zoro. It wasn't too bad, but eh, I wasn't that into it.


NARUTO EPISODE 135: THE PROMISE THAT COULD NOT BE KEPT

Weird that I'm finally at the end of canon Naruto. I've heard more about filler Naruto than anything else throughout this topic, it has been a little ridiculous. Negative nancies, all of you!

Naruto asks where Sasuke is. Now some random medical ninjas show up... ask about Sasuke. Kakashi just shakes his head. Kakashi asks about everyone else. Shikamaru has minor injuries, Kiba has serious ones, but not life threatening. Neji and Choji are in serious condition, anything could happen.

Tsunade is working on some crazy cure for everyone.

Kiba is in his bed, surrounded by dogs. His sis says Akamaru will be OK, but no walks for a while, and no walks for him either >_>.

They are using some crazy healing technique on Neji. lol. Ninja surgeries are entertaining.

Shika is just waiting there with Temari for the surgery outcomes. Temari says sacrifice is a part of missions. Shika says he isn't cut out to be a shinobi. Temari says he is surprisingly fragile for a man. Shika blames himself for everything. She asks if he is afraid of getting hurt. Shika walks away. His dad was waiting in a hallway nearby. He asks if Shika is gonna allow himself to be argued down by a girl. Shika says he isn't a woman. He doesn't like arguments. Shika's dad says he is a coward, and not a man. Even if he quits, missions will continue, his comrades will still be out there. With different leaders. And his comrades might die. If he was their leader, they might be saved. Reflect and learn from his experience. His dad says to think about becoming more exceptional for the sake of his comrades. THATS WHAT REAL COMRADES ARE YOU COWARD. Dayum.

Tsunade walks out. She says he is OK! Choji is saved! Tsunade says that Shikaku was a big help. He made some preparation manual for her.

Now Shi*zune says Neji was saved. Also, Kakashi and Naruto have now returned, and Naruto is OK. But no Sasuke. Tsunade says it seems the mission is a failure, but everyone is alive, and thats most important. Shika is crying hard. He says next time... the mission will be perfect.

AT Orochi's base, Sasuke is demanding more power.

Back at the hidden leaf hospital, Naruto just sits there, with Sasuke's headband. Sadness on his face. Shika arrives to visit. He says everyones OK. Shika asks about Sasuke, Naruto says he is gone. Sakura hears this from outside. Tsunade shows up. So Tsunade and Sakura both go in. Tears well up in Naruto's eyes when he sees Sakura. He remembers the promise he made. He says he is sorry. Sakura ignores his apology. Naruto says he will keep his promise... he said he would. He will do it. Naruto and everyone else smiles. Sakura says thanks.

Naruto is now alone... JIRAIYA ARRIVES! WITH BIG TOAD! Jiraiya says that now Naruto is his official disciple. He will try Naruto to be a full-fledged Shinobi in three years. Jiraiya says he has received credible info that the Akatsuki will come for him next in 3-4 years. Naruto says he doesn't have time for that. He has to go get Sasuke ASAP, before Orochi kills him.

Jiraiya says he knows all about Orochi's jutsu. He will not be able to reincarnate for another 3 years. Sasuke is safe since Orochi just reincarnated. Naruto breathes a sigh of relief. Jiraiya says to forget about Sasuke. Sasuke went there on his own. Jiraiya says Sasuke is the same kind of kid as Orochi. Naruto says Sasuke is his friend. Jiraiya gets angry. Would a comrade hurt a friend?

We seem to get a flashback. Jiraiya was foolish enough to believe in Orochi until he himself was betrayed. No matter how much he wanted it, Orochi couldn't be saved. He doesn't want Naruto going through the same thing.

Jiraiya says if he decides to go for Sasuke, he wont train him, and he'll get the Anbu Black Ops to watch him and keep him from leaving the village. Jiraiya says to give up on Sasuke. Stop suffering! Dismiss him! Develop eyes that make the right judgement. Do not remain a fool.

NARUTO SAYS HE IS FINE BEING A FOOL! HE'LL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES ON HIS OWN, DEVELOP HIS OWN JUTSU, AND THEN HE'LL KICK THE AKATSUKI'S ASS! YEAAAH NARUTO IS SO BADASS!

Jiraiya: If you were to do it alone, you would just come up with some stupid erotic Jutsu anyway

lawl. Jiraiya says if Naruto is a big enough fool and not just an ordinary fool, it might work out. He will see him when he is recovered.

Akatsuki meeting. They will kill Orochi eventually. Only three years left, can they all accomplish all their goals in time? They need everything, including the fox.

Overall: Damn. Great episode, with some great moments. Has me DYING to go straight to Shippuden, but I will persevere! Great conclusion to the show.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Well, thats that. Pretty sad day, no more Naruto canon for a while. Naruto picks up a win, and it's only a matter of time till OP catches up.

Now, let me address the ultimate question. Is Naruto truly better than One Piece? I'd say overall to this point, yes. Naruto always has something big going on, OP spends a lot of time on character development and overall plot development. I think that means that eventually, even if Naruto kept going as is, OP would eventually pass it, thanks to more long term planning. In the end though, the main reason that Naruto is better than OP to this point is because East Blue wasn't that good till mid-way through the Arlong arc. Once OP gets to Grand Line, I would say it is clearly on equal terms with Naruto, and maybe even just a teeny teeny bit better. It's tricky to say. So basically, Naruto is better overall to this point, but OP always has the potential to just get better and better thanks to the build, and Grand Line OP >= Naruto.

Episode 136[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 136: ZENNY LIVES ON GOAT ISLAND AND THERE'S A PIRATE SHIP ON HIS MOUNTAIN!

Seems like another peaceful day. Nevermind! They are being fired at by marines. The straw hats are running. LOL, the marines think that they can beat the Straw Hats, but in reality, they are just relaxing >_>. They are starving. Robin tickles Luffy and Chopper with her hand stuff, lawl.

Now they enter a fog. The sea looks really intense. Nami says she can lose the marines here, but she is obviously worried about this place. The marines get pwned at this juncture, and crash into each other. The marines retreat.

The Going Merry clears the fog and spots a strange looking island. In the filler, theres been no mention of those compass things yet that they need to guide them.

Some old guy is watching the island, and sees them enter. He says just wait and see what he has in store.

The crew comes across a goat and chases it because they are hungry. Nami stops them. But now evil looking goats arrive. Chopper says not to kill them, they aren't bad. Chopper tells the goats they aren't here to eat them, HE SWEARS. He asks why they led them into a trap. The goat says they were ordered to. Chopper yells at them all to stop, and the goats finally do. Now an old man falls out of a tree. He ordered this. The old man says there is no treasure and he is broke. He hates pirates. He faints. Chopper says his heart has stopped. Chopper wants to be taken back to the old man's house. All the goats watch, but Chopper revives him.

The old man now convinces them to draw water and chop wood for him... >_>. He has lived here for 20 years after washing ashore. Luffy is reminded of that weird naked guy on that one island. The old guy seems to have a pirate cloak on though. He keeps ordering everyone around.

Zoro stumbles upon a pirate ship when he gets lost. He comes back and tells them. Nami wants to have a look. So they all go. It seems like the old guy had been building this, but suddenly gave up. Nami thinks he is a former pirate. Nami thinks he has TREASURE. He has some valuable collection stuff in his hut.

The ship is right off a cliff though. Why make it here if you were going to escape? Nami doesn't have an answer to that one.

At the marine base, some captain is pissed at the marines for backing off the chase of the Straw Hats. He orders them to go kill the straw hats. The marine seargant doesn't mention he saw an island. His subordinate asks why. The guy says Smoker capturing Croc was a cover up. It was the straw hats. They can't go against them head to head... But he has something he wants to do.

At night, Luffy and crew decide to leave... Chopper says he can't leave his patient behind. The old man is sick according to Chopper. He has 3 days to live. So I guess they are gonna stay.

In the morning, they prepare a breakfast for the man. They are very nice to him. They have a nice chat. The crew keeps freaking out thinking he is about to die any second, and they keep giving away that he is gonna die >_>.

Zoro notices the guy eats as much as Luffy. He wonders if he is really gonna die in 3 days.

The marines do some research. Some pirate disappeared on that island 20 years ago, and he had a treasure... looks like they are gonna go for it.

Overall: Man, this was some terrible filler to start. The last 3-4 minutes when they found out he is gonna die soon is when the ep got decently entertaining, but I was pretty bored before that.

NARUTO EPISODE 136: DEEP COVER?! A SUPER S-RANK MISSION

The fact that OP was bad makes this kind of exciting. I get the vibe that Naruto is gonna need any win it can get, and it has a chance here!

S-Rank Mission OMG. Naruto is eating ramen while still bandaged. He escaped from the hospital >_>. They time him up and drag him away, lawl.

Sakura meanwhile, is looking out at the river. She thinks she is pathetic. All she did was cry and rely on Naruto. She uhh starts packing to go save him? You are so smart Sakura!

Naruto is tied up in bed in the hospital haw haw. Sakura comes to visit. Sakura says she has totally relied on him, and not to worry about Sasuke. She says this time, she will do her best. Naruto sees a weird look in her eyes.

Jiraiya shows up. Naruto says he wants to put off training a little while longer. He has some odds and ends to take care of.

Jiraiya now visits Tsunade. He wants to make a request.

At night, Naruto realizes what Sakura is gonna do, and he breaks out of the ropes. Sakura is about to leave the village... Naruto catches up to her. He says he wont stop her. He is going too! They are a squad.

Jiraiya now arrives. Now Jiraiya says he wont stop them. But they have a mission from Tsunade. They are to go to the Land of Rice Paddies and investigate Sasuke's whereabouts and the location of the sound village. They will be working under him. Neato!

Apparently this is a real dangerous mission, even with Jiraiya going, according to the flashback of how this mission came about, with Jiraiya talking to Tsunade. What could be so dangerous I wonder? Oh wow, I thought they were looking for the village of sound, not that they were actually going there! WTF!

They are now in the land of Rice Paddies. The hidden sound village is supposedly around here. Jiraiya has no idea where it is, so they have to investigate. Jiraiya says their top prority should be to find a town with GIRLZ. They find one, but it is deserted. Now Jiraiya steals all of Naruto's money >_>. And Sakura gives him some. He tells them to wait here, this is a mission for ADULTS.

LOL, Jiraiya walks into town like a pimp. There are people with weird red eyes everywhere looking at him. He enters an inn. Theres some chicks checking him out, they are talking about pulverizing him O_o.

Jiraiya is with some chicks now. It was a TRAP. A bunch of bullies show up. They say to leave all he has and go. He's sad that he wont be getting any : (.

Outside, Naruto and Sakura get attacked by some Kunai. Naruto dodges and attacks back. She says she was "wrong" and leaves. hm?

Meanwhile, Jiraiya runs back... and keeps running. LOL the whole village is after him. He says they gotta get out of here. Naruto wants to attack but they have to be secretive, so they cant use ninja arts. So they just run.

Now we see that chick ninja from before. She is in a forest.

Overall: The episode got off to a decent start, it was a logical path of progression anyway, then when they got to the deserted village, it was kinda eh. Below average ep.


Naruto vs. One Piece: Oh god, Naruto Filler Hell ALREADY WINS AN EPISODE! IT'S UNSTOPPABLE! OK, Naruto wasn't good at all, but OP managed to have one of its worst eps since the Grand Line started, and Naruto mostly wins by default. Big win for Naruto, which needs every win it can get.

Naruto: 75

One Piece: 61

Episode 137[]

ONE PIECE EPISODE 137: MONEY LENDER ZENNY'S AMBITION!

God damn. It's tough to will myself to do another. Not expecting anything good for either.

They are on the ship, repairing it, it seems. The guy says it isn't a ship. It's his... coffin! He says he will die eventually. They ask why he made his coffin like a pirate ship, but he falls asleep.

They continue to treat the Goat man like a king. Zoro says it has already been 5 days, something is up. He seems even better than before. The crew decides to set sail... but now the SHIP IS HIS. NAMI HAS LOST EVERY GAME OF CHESS SHE HAS PLAYED. They must continue to work the island to get their ship back... wow.

Erm, Nico wins the ship back in her game. OK then.

They now decide to party, he says they are the best pirates he has ever met. They ask him about his treasure. He wasn't a pirate. He just lent them money. The pirates constantly broke promises, and thats why he hates pirates. They made him work to get his money back. He had to constantly put his life on the line to get his money. He says he was weak though. So how did he get his money back?

Ahh, he would often do stuff like set bombs on the ship... but theyd actually be fireworks. Badass. He did stuff like that.

Zenny started his money lending business, because he wanted to be THE PIRATE KING. But then some pirates destroyed his ship. DREAM OVER. By the time he built a ship on this island, it was too late. Luffy says it's never too late.

One marine ship heads to the island in their quest to get the treasure. They want to lure the straw hats off the island first.

At night, Zenny sits aboard his ship, thinking about Luffy's words. Robin goes and talks to him about how Luffy did something similar to her, by saving her life when she didn't want to be saved.

Chopper announces that marines are here in the morning. They rush down to their ship. He uhh apologizes for chasing them the other day >_>. He says he just wants to explore the island and talk to "Zenny". They should leave before more marines come.

Zenny is looking out at sea... he realizes IT'S A TRAP. Beyond the fog there are more marines waiting to ambush them for when they leave. Nami gets suspicious about how the marine knew Zenny's name. She says they can't trust him. Now Chopper smells the cannons on the other ships.

And now Usopp was captured by marines. The marines are about to fire at everyone...

In order to save them, ZENNY SAYS THEY ARE SETTING SAIL! The goats release the wood planks, and the ship comes down from the mountain. ZENNY PIRATES FULL CHARGE.

Overall: Weird ep. Zenny is interesting at least, I liked his development. A few marines being able to take the whole crew down and actually being a threat all of a sudden is pretty ridiculous, but I'll say this was decent, thanks to Zenny and his awesome goats.


NARUTO EPISODE 137: A TOWN OF OUTLAWS! THE SHADOW OF THE FUMA CLAN

Jiraiya wants to go to more towns, Naruto and Sakura realize his real purpose, and are annoyed.

They make it to town. It's a really rough town. Lots of fighting. Jiraiya sees a strip club or something and gets excited. He says he will "GO ACCUMULATE INFO", and he lets Naruto and Sakura go eat and then wait at the temple.

Naruto and Sakura end up seeing that ninja again. She seems hurt, she is being attacked. Naruto barely saves her from attack. Both Naruto and Sakura get attacked, but it was substitution. They have escaped. These guys seem to be Orochimaru's men.

Jiraiya meanwhile is led to some back alley to learn more about the sound village. It was a trap of course. They all attack him with bows and arrows. He makes a needle shield to block them. Jiraiya demands to know about the sound village. These guys claim they were once ninja also, or something. Jiraiya says they are no longer shinobi. He gets attacked, OH GOD RASENGAN. The guy ends up bowing to Jiraiya, lawl. Jiraiya introduces himself in FANCY fashion. They know the name and ALL bow to him.

These guys know of Orochimaru.

Meanwhile, Naruto and Sakura are with this ninja. She seems nervous, so Sakura throws Naruto out since I think she is about to take off some CLOTHES. Sakura treats it. Naruto notices spiders outside...

Naruto doesn't believe it's a girl... then he recalls grabbing her boobies accidentally earlier, LOLOL. She says the guys chasing her were protecting Orochimaru's residence. They ask for details.

Once, some feudal lord from the land of Rice Paddies launched an attack to expand his land. Losing was expected. All the clans that participated went into ruin. Including the Fuma clan, who she is apart of. Then, someone from the sound village offered to help them start a full shinobi town in the land of rice paddies.

Her cousin went with them to talk about it... but he never returned. She wants to save him. She says she was never strong, always a hindrance. She has to do it. Naruto says they will help.

Now Sakura notices, SPIDERS EVERYWHERE. Shadow clones by Naruto. Ant Lion jutsu by the shadow guys, the land starts to sink into a quicksand or something.

Overall: Hmm, kind of like the last one. This episode wasn't really good, but it wasn't too bad either. I was a little bored at points, but it was also decently entertaining sometimes to. Average to below average ep.


Naruto vs. One Piece: This is a real tough one. Both eps were pretty boring. OP may have been a bit better, but the fact that marines were in a position to kill everyone but Luffy kind of pissed me off >_>. But in the end, the best part of either episode was the Zenny flashback, so I'll give this one to OP.

Naruto: 75

One Piece: 62
