Naruto Shippuden Uncut Set 13
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!]]>
These episodes cover most of the "Sennin Training" and "Konoha's Destruction" arcs, which ran at the end of season six and the beginning of season seven of Naruto Shippuden in Japan. The ninja of the Hidden Leaf Village and the Toad Spirits finally decode Jiraiya's final message: "The true one is not among them." But how does it apply to defeating the six evil warriors known collectively as "Pain"? Naruto travels to Mount Myouboku to undergo training in the powerful Sage technique from Lord Fukasaku. Determined to avenge his beloved teacher, "Pervy Sage" Jiraiya, Naruto applies himself with unprecedented discipline, and it's incongruous to see the rambunctious ninja meditating. But while he's training, the six Pains attack the Hidden Leaf Village with unprecedented ferocity. All the shinobi, Kakashi-Sensei, and even Lady Tsunade seem powerless to stop them, although the Hidden Leaf researchers discover that the metal rods piercing the ears and noses of the Pain ninja are chakra antennae that enable them to share power and perceptions. Naruto returns from Mount Myouboku with several toad-warriors to challenge the Pains. The filmmakers crank up the action as Naruto unleashes a barrage of new jutsu in his battle with Tendou, the leader of the animated corpse-warriors the real Pain manipulates from a distance. Pain proposes to bring peace to the Ninja World through the terror of a super-weapon using the power of the multi-tailed demons, an idea Naruto rejects. But is he powerful enough to defeat Pain and his puppets when the others failed? Much of season six focused on others: Naruto is back at the center of the story where he belongs, reminding audiences just how engaging a character he really is. (Rated T+ Older Teen, but suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, violence against women, minor risqué humor, grotesque imagery, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

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.
I am trying not to give up too much detail, so that you watch the episodes, but rest assured, everyone has a moment to shine. Perhaps Hinata shines the brightest, and hey, YES there was a reason she's on the cover. I think these episodes and the next set through Episode 175 are the PERFECT series anime -and it could hae ended right there.
SPOILER ALERT BELOW!!
This was an incredible box set, but I'm just as furious as Naruto was when they (seemingly) killed what I'm certain is one of the most endearing characters in the whole series. I was almost brought to tears of sadness and rage, which just reminds me why this the best Anime series out there. No other movie, show, or cartoon gets this emotional response from me. And now begins the long await for Box Set 14 in April.
