Naruto Shippuuden: Sasuke vs Deidara-Recap 121 -125

Oh boy! The last ten episodes have been exploding with action filled to the brim. But it is so much to handle in one single post, I have split them into two: Part 1 is the Sasuke vs. Deidara portion, and part 2 is still awaiting future episodes, but it will be awesome I can say already. It will be Jiraiya vs. Pain. So glad that Naruto Shippuuden has finally pushed it to the limits. No more boring recaps, and thank God for no stupid filler story arcs. We have moved away from the utterly stupid arc of Yukimaru and Guren and all the sexual tension between Naruto and Yukimaru. Add to that, Sasuke has killed Orochimaru and absorbed his abilities, and is now on the move to seek his revenge against his elder brother Uchiha Itachi. What I absolutely love in this part is the emergence of Akatsuki’s immensely powerful Ninjas and the extreme mystical characterisation of them. No one knows about their abilities and yet there is so much sickness that surrounds them. Remember Hidan and Kakuzu who killed Asuma. Thank God for Shikamaru. But Kakuzu had one sick ability of a Voo-dooish black magic using the blood of the opponent. We also got a short flashback arc of how Kakashi got his left eye Sharingan. But there is so much more history about Konoha which needs to be explained faster. Anyway, coming back to the last ten episodes – 121 to 131. Sasuke is on the move, has collected three really crazy and strong Ninjas to team up for his mission to kill Itachi [ yeah right!]. The team is called Taka and the members are -

Suigestsu

We don’t know much about him other than he was a test subject captured by Orochimaru and kept in a huge bottle filled with liquid, much like Neo was kept [ remember Matrix? ]. Sasuke freed him and has skills with the sword, and now he possesses Zabuza’s blade, Kubikiri Bocho. He can transform into water, and hence, has instantaneous healing power and also can transform and elongate his body parts [ like Mr.Fantastic]. He aims to take on Akatsuki member and Itachi’s mate- Kisame Hoshigake and then capture his Samehada.

Karin

She has a strong sense of chakra, even stronger than Kiba and Akamaru. From her smell she can tell the number of Ninjas , the types of Ninjas- human or otherwise etc.  She was a former assistant to Orochimaru, but now is obsessively in love with Sasuke. Its quite funny sometimes, when she acts tough and fights with Suigetsu, and at the very next instant, she blushes to see Sasuke.

And then we have… Jugo

He is mentally unstable, sporadically fluctuating between a bloodthirsty and a docile personality. It is all a bit weird coz Sasuke reminds Jugo of Deidara and that Sasuke will protect him from becoming a monster is why he joined the team. The whole Orochimaru’s cursed seal was originated from Jugo, and the brief battle between Jugo and Sasuke was quite cool.

Akatsuki is after collecting the Bijuus and they know that Konoha has the biggest one – the nine tailed fox Jinchuuriki sealed inside Naruto. Sasuke is on the hunt to find Akatsuki members to get his lead on Itachi. And he encounters Akatsuki’s Deidara. And boy, we haven’t seen the best of Deidara yet. He was last seen fighting with clay bombs in the Village of Sand fighting with Gaara, and then was sent to another dimension by Kakashi. He had lost an arm in the last battle, and now he is all about showing off his skills as an art form. He is accompanied by the jolly and funny Tobi. Sasuke encounters Deidara and what happens next is a battle of monstrous proportions. Just feast your eyes on the following screenshots.

Sasuke vs. Deidara Screenshots.

Deidara’s Kakuru C4 jutsu is beyond my comprehensive power. I am speechless. It combines Nano technology with Ninja awesomeness. The clay bombs that Deidara spreads out are tiny particles suspended in the air, and as Sasuke breathes it in, he inhales them. And then Deidara detonates them! Sasuke – scatters, or does he?

It was all an illusion. Sasuke had worked on Deidara with his Sharingan’s Genjustu.

And the real monstrous Sasuke attacks Deidara with his Chidori.

It’s so awesome that I had to show it twice!!!

Of course, Deidara and Sasuke’s battle doesn’t end here. Deidara transforms himself into a living bomb in an effort to kill Sasuke and prove his art is supreme. But Sasuke escapes by means of using Orochimaru’s humongous snake and covering himself within it. Although Sasuke is heavily injured by it, he survives the attack. That should teach him a lesson of what the Akatsuki is capable of doing. Sasuke has grown to become an arrogant man who is way too confident over his abilities, and now that he has Orochimaru’s abilities, he thinks that he can conquer Itachi. How wrong is he!

But then, with all of these happening, we get to know of something so awesome. A revelation that shook me to the core. While Deidara was accompanied by Tobi, we all believed that with Deidara’s bad ass explosion, Tobi must have evaporated. But we get to see something that can be termed as the major ‘twist’ in the storyline. Tobi reveals his original identity as the one, the only – Uchiha Madara. And with this the awesome trio of Sharingan users is complete – Uchiha Sasuke, Uchiha Itachi and Uchiha Madara. Have a look below.

SHARINGAN



Jiraiya suspects that it was Madara who summoned the Nine tailed Fox monster Junchuuriki which almost destoryed Konoha, and which killed Minato Namikage while he sealed the Bijuu inside Naruto. But Madara was one of the founding fathers of Konoha along with the First Hokage, and he was defeated by the first Hokage, Hashirama Senju. It was believed that Uchiha Madara died in that battle. Until recently, when it was revealed that he is the strongest member and the founder of Akatsuki. Whoaaaaaaa!!!!! That moment was just fucking brilliant.

And to end, just a glimpse of what is coming up.

Yes, that is our friendly, but legendary Sannin of Konoha, Erosennin Jiraiya Sama with the summoned Toads.

Can you contain the excitement? I can’t wait for Thursday!!! Zor se bolo…Naruto Shippuuden rocks!!!

  17. hahahaha i can't believe jiriaya's only reason for becoming a ninja was to get girls! and even being all powerful and one of the legendary 3 ninja's he still couldn't get girls :P so he has to resort to spying on girls at the hot springs…
    and to think that he may have become hokage…
    i still like him though coz he always wastes time in the middle of fights to introduce himself as the famous toad sage, one of the legendary san nin and whatever else he can think of as the time… lol

    ohhh and about sasuke vs itachi
    itachi was handicapped (almost blind) and he still LET SASUKE WIN!!!

    and i think he screwed up sasuke for ever ahahahaha
    with the whole “i'm evil i wanna kill you and take your eyeballs out.” and then at the end he just pokes him on the head :P

    ITACHI IS AWESOME! ITACHI IS POWERFUL! ITACHI IS THE BOOGEYMAN!?

  18. Jiraiya is one horny Sensei :P I love Jiraiya.. absolutely. He is definitely one of the key characters in Naruto, much more focal to the story than any of the Hokages… including Tsunade.

    I will be writing about Sasuke vs Itachi, and Jiraiya vs Pain too. Just haven't got around it.
    Itachi was one strong Shinobi. Man, this whole Uchiha clan and their Sharingan are twisted. Anywho.. u have a very Happy New year, and loking forward to more Naruto discussions here.

    Cheerio!!!
