Naruto is Back! (again)

Warning: The following post is almost pure fangirling. Just like every other time that Shippuden returns from fillers, I have dissolved into gleeful singing and dancing. This is about as far from objective as I get. The grammar and thoughtfulness I usually prize are dismissed as secondary to excitement. Proceed at your own risk. 

Spoiler warning: I’ll warn you again right before it comes, but there’s a major spoiler near the end of this post.

In case you missed my one-girl party on Twitter:


*Singing to a tune similar to “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”* 

Naruto is ba-ack, Naruto is ba-ack, Naruto is baaaa-aaak! Naruto is back!

*Singing over*

I can’t contain my smiling. No matter how many fillers they put me through, I always return. Why? Because I love Naruto. And Gaara. And Shikamaru, Kakashi, Shino, and Sakura (don’t you dare hate on her; she’s grown up a lot over the past couple hundred episodes), and... well, you get the idea. There’s so much excitement, and suspense, and fun. And I’m just plain attached to this show. 

“It’s alright now,” Naruto says. Yep. It’s better than alright. It’s fantastic, actually. You’re here! 

I really don’t have much else to say. I’m not in a mood to be critical. I try to avoid letting my critical wheels turn when I watch Shippuden. It’s too special to me.

There was a pretty big, exciting plot twist at the end. Unfortunately, it was a little spoiled for me. Apparently the Naruto wikia operates on manga readers’ knowledge. I tried to wipe what I learned out of my mind, but I only sort of succeeded.


Tobi is not Uchiha Madara. 

I’m pretty dang excited to see the real, albeit reanimated, Madara in action.

I really want to know who Tobi actually is. And I want to tell Sasuke the truth... yeah, I refuse to give up on him until Naruto does. As irritated as I get with Sasuke’s illogical, emotional decisions, I will stand behind all of Team Seven until the end. So no bashing him, either.

I decided to take Crunchyroll up on their free trial offer, so I get to follow Shippuden episodes as they come out for a while. Whoo-hoo! I can’t wait to see Naruto demonstrate more of his improved fighting ability!
