For some reason I wasn’t all that excited for this episode, but I actually enjoyed it. It was interesting to see how Killer Bee was treated as a kid; apparently it wasn’t any different than Naruto. Everyone just kept away from him, but it was nice how he didn’t let it affect him. He just rapped and danced, and he even had his shades on as a kid.
There was a pretty violent part of this episode when ninja’s from the Cloud Village were trying to seal the Hachibi, and one person who just so happened to be Motoi’s father got his chest pierced by his bull like horns. It’s been a while since Naruto had any scene with blood spill, but then it transcended to them being a little older.
Once again Bee has his shades and is rapping and dancing, but I could tell right away Motoi would have some feelings of hate for him. Kind of obvious since Bee became the new Jinchuriki and that very monster killed his father, so it’s kind of hard not to blame the guy. But I did find it kind of funny how Motoi tried to kill Bee from behind and all Bee did was turn around a bit and his sword just knocked the kunai away without him unsheathing it. But nice, seeing how it didn’t bother Bee and how he still wanted to be friends.
So after seeing some flashbacks of what Naruto has gone through we see that the giant squid is back and captured Motoi, giant squids are apparently very vengeful sea creatures. So as Yamato holds the beast down and Naruto’s ready to use his rasengan, but Bee comes and saves the day and reassures Motoi that even though he once attempted to kill them that they’re still great friends.
In all it was a pretty interesting episode, it was more serious than anything, since I didn’t laugh in this episode. It was cool to see how Bee grew up and how he dealt with being ostracised by his village; and it was funny seeing how throughout all his life he always wore shades, anyways I’m glad Naruto is back on track and I’m anticipating the next episode.
