Naruto and his friends successfully decipher the code Jiraiya left behind, but it's not enough to solve the mystery of Pain. For Naruto, Jiraiya's passing is more than enough to inspire him to follow Fukasaku to Mount Myoboku, where he begins his training in Sage Jutsu. But will the antsy Naruto ever be able to sit still long enough to achieve Sage Mode? Back in the Leaf Village, disaster strikes when the Six Paths of Pain attack the village, and those dearest to Naruto are thrown into the chaos of battle!]]>

The Akatsuki believe that they have captured the first eight tailed beasts assault the Leaf village to capture the last of the Jinchuriki. (Naruto is the host for the nine-tailed fox demon).
Naurto Shippuden is a Manga like Marvel Comics in the US. Marvel is successful because Stan Lee and other writers developed the characters, including the flaws, quirks, and individuality with each book and dive deep into them, making you feel for them. Naruto does no less, each of the main characters, and the peripheral characters has a back story, a personality, and the light shines on each of them in turn.
What is amazing about Japanese anime, is the faithfulness of the anime to the manga. Rarely does the anime deviate from the manga when the material is available to them. Everyone talks about "filler episodes" and these are those times that the "show must go on" but no Manga storyline is developed yet to work on. (Full Metal Alchemist pulled this off -why there is two versions of it - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood faithful to the Manga)
In this set, as Naruto is away, his peers fight the Akatsuki Pain. Pain is unique in that he manifests himself in six different hosts, with six different powers. The six split up and 3 of them begin a diversion, by destroying the village. The other 3 hunt for Naruto, questioning and killing villagers who do not help them. Nobody in the village gives up Naruto a testament to the villages' loyalty.Read more ›
Disc 1--So, a young man goes to a far-off place, where he's trained by a wizened, green, frog-man who makes him eat strange foods and whacks him with a cane a lot. Yeah, reminded me of The Empire Strikes Back. Kinda waiting for them to tell us that Tobi is really Minato, and that Sakura is really Naruto's sister.
Yeah, I'm trying to be a bit silly here. Enjoy the humor on the disc, because starting towards the end of it, and going on for a while, the yucks become precious few. Understand, that's not a complaint, just noting that the story gets very intense very quickly.
Disc 2--With most movies and shows, we have to practice what's called "suspension of disbelief", mainly meaning that when an important character is in danger, we may know that nothing very bad is going to happen to them, but have to essentially pretend that it might in order to enjoy the suspense. For me, the movie Serenity blew through that, because as it was building up to the ending conflicts, it succeeded at making me think that no character, no matter how major, was safe, that any or all of them may not make it to the end credits.
Starting with this disc, and going over into the next, I started having much the same feeling. No one was safe, anything could happen to anyone. The costs are high, and then as the last episode on this disc is ending, the destruction reaches a cataclysmic scale.
Disc 3--This disc simply didn't remind me of any particular sci-fi movie. If anything, the episodes reminded me most of the first Shippuden story arc, when Gaara defended the Sand Village from an attack by Deidara.Read more ›
One of the great things about long running series such as Naruto is that it isn't just Naruto's story; Shikamaru, Kakashi , Gaara and Sasuke have all had their chances to shine in recent months. All of these stories have been extremely enjoyable and a welcome addition to the Naruto universe - but what of Naruto's story? We've seen him rescue Gaara, push Orochimaru to breaking point, and continue his promised pursuit of Sasuke. On top off all that, he's had to cope with the pain of losing a loved one. Emotionally and physically, Naruto has gone through a lot; but when the Akatsuki leader Pain comes to Konoha seeking the nine tails jinchuriki it seems Naruto's torment is only just beginning.
We've been treated to some sensational fights recently in Naruto Shippuden, and luckily for us, this boxset contains even more great action; as Naruto makes a stand against the Six Paths Of Pain. This is undoubtedly his moment, and he doesn't let down. It's here that we see how far Naruto has come - from loud mouthed wannabe hokage to protector of the leaf - it's here that the anime comes full circle and the transition is complete. And what a transition is is, as Naruto demonstrates his newly developed sage powers and superior intellect to great effect. Fans who have followed the series since the beginning will feel a real sense of proudness at just how much Naruto has grown.
Of course Naruto isn't alone in his devotion to protecting Konoha, and in these episodes fans get to see favourites in action such as Kakashi, Sakura, Shikamaru, Kiba and Shino, plus a few other surprise members who you wouldn't expect to get involved in the action.Read more ›
