Naruto Shippuuden 63 (Naruto 263)
The Two Kings.
Studio Pierrot, the animation company responsible for Naruto Shippuuden (No, I never gave a shit who actually made it either!) should give up pretending otherwise and just rename Sora.
Team Kakeshi’s newest member is already Naruto’s personal rival with an arrogant attitude and a talent for hating everything. Given an backstory where he became orphaned as a child, a drive to avenge his family’s death and a crazy amount of power locked away in his persona, doesn’t he sound pretty familiar?
It seems Studio Pierrot have attempted to salvage the fillers by recreating one of the best characters in the franchise, Sasuke. But it’s Sasuke but without the spiky haircut and a cool trick that makes your eyes go red, therefore, he is less than YAOI-tastic than Sasuke. He is Lesser-Sasuke or Lesasa!
It’s another episode of training for Naruto and Lesasa, under the instruction of Asuma-sensei. Then Asuma attempts to buy Lesasa’s loyalty arse by getting him a weapon, probably a gesture he will later regret. Furido shows up in the village and informs Lesser-Sasuke that Asuma was the one who killed his father. Cue anger, hatred, then an-sudden-and-miraculous-improvement-in-power. Yes! Lesasa is following Sasuke down the same path to the darkside. Yadda, Yadda.
No Naruto next week because there’s a special on July the 3rd. Something to look forward to, is finding out what bullshit they come up with to explain how Konoha is powered by electricity.
100% bet that the omake at the end does not make it 4-kids release in the English markets because of all the cigarettes and alcohol use. Also, Woody sticks his finger into his drink – dirty bugger!
