Episode 13: The Demon Beast Appears. Attack of the
Start out in a rundown shack. Sai find a photo of Tanuki (no seriously) Shigataki a Roots member. He was the brains behind a plan to develop a new weapon based of the first cell's. The project is Gozu Tennou (which is named after a Japanese Shinto-Buddhist god of pestilence). They search but find nothing until Sai finds a photo of Tanuki and his child who face we can't see. Sai mentions that it now make sense why it started in the academy...is it the clone (train boy has a dad, and repeater doesn't come off as that intelligent as he was their two episodes ago also she has that dark past I don't care about)? Oh last episode it ended with Cups telling him he knew who was behind it all i skip that out of bored. Cups talks about whether Bolt was "The Sun" or not. Oh it is the clone. And we see a the seal on her back.
So Shikamaru informs Naruto that the clone is behind it. Sumire Kakei (her mother last name). Ah Kakashi appears. He mentioned that it was he and Tsunade that revealed all the Roots members identities. Is that a scar or a just a dull brown line?
The switch back to Cups and Bolt where Bolt tires to dismiss the idea, and then there is a quack in Senju Park.
Their excuse for why they weren't able to discover this earlier? The village was in shambles after the Fourth Great Ninja War, and they didn't want to cause panic or spread distrust amongst the populace...what? No the Pein attack was something else. The fourth war happened mostly in the Land of Lighting. The Village was damaged after the Pein attack the village wasn't touch by the Fourth war. In fact from what we saw the village (when Sasuke came to the village and Minato was thrown there) was mostly repaid by the time the war started. Oh Kakashi was already in charge by that point, right they dropped Tsunade like a stone as soon as that war ended didn't they? They also did a terrible job at her background check and try to justify it by they would allow anyone in to learn how their village train it students...or something like that and they won't judge a child for the sin of their parents.
Then we go to Sai again where he think about how while Danzo did despicable thing he did it for what he believe was the best interest of the village, that one of his old minions turning one of his weapon projects against the village is spiting on those ideals, and ultimately he worried that if an incident were to occur a cycle of revenge would start up and the village would discriminate against former Roots members IE Him. He also wants to help free the girl from her past pain. So Naruto accomplish nothing other then banging Hinata and becoming hokage didn't he?
So the Clone is found by two mooks...so their dead. Oh Sai comes and knocks her out, and promises since she is one of his son's friends he will do his best to help her. She instead summons the Nue. If people forget it a chimera with a monkeys face, tiger body, and a snake as its tail.
Bolt and Cups see the Summon and Bolt decides that he going to go over there and talk to the clone. Cups looks on longingly while that white snake pops out to talk to him giving him new order to kill the clone.
Kakashi comes to attack the nue cutting off it tail with Purple Lighting? Did they mistranslate lighting blade or something is that a new attack. So they construct an earth barrier. Oh the Nue has hydra heads now that can suck out chakra. Bolt and Cups come up. Bolt wonder what they can do. Cups bring up the nue will disappear if the clone dies. These kids are 8 again right? Bolt decides he will try saving the clone. Cups is impressed and says more stuff to get those yaoi fangirl fantasizing. he makes a snake clone to hold bolt while he kills the clone. Once cups leave Bolt summons some clones and hit bolt to release him from the Snake Clones hold. Then they make unfunny remarks when bolt complains about them hitting him too hard. His dues ex eye activate again to show him where the clone is through some sort o chakra current that connecting her to the nue.
The Nue grows bigger so they create another barrier. Where is everyone else? This is happening in a forest yes but it still in the village and is making quite the ruckus. Oh Naruto finally appease. Bring out Kurama and kill the thing already. Oh there Sakura again as a still image. Shino and Shikamaru are in charge of the relief groups. Wait how are their civilians injured the thing hasn't even moved? So Naruto can't use Kurama because it will just absorb his ckakra. Well then what's the point of him being there? Oh and somehow they know that the Clone can as a last resort detonate the Nue and use it stored chakra to destroy the village. Which apparently was it original purpose. So Kakashi the retired Hokage orders the current hokage to just sit back and help maintain the barrier. Behold people have waited 18 years or so for Naruto become hokage, and this is what they get. Naruto asks if all they can do is just hold up the barrier and keep the nue there and wait? Well you can send your thousand clones to scour the village in-search of the clone.
Back to the clone. At least she doesn't have that stupid hair cut anymore...for the most part. She suspected they would put up a barrier and considers just detonating the nue right now. Cups find her and she able to give her a cut. he was able to find her due to a snake he left on her...how did she not notice that. Oh she did the standard personality shift girl do when they are discovered to be the villain as well as the changing the clothes into something more sexy. Cups quickly pins her down after a bit of talking but by this point Bolt has found them. Cups is hesitant to kill in front of him in case he thinks less of him for being a murderer, which allows the clone to slip from his grasp, and Bolt will soon give the standard shounen speeches to try and get the clone to give up. You know the drill "Bolt brings up friendship. The Clone brings up has she was born for revenge against the village. Bolt counters with she should be able to live her own life or something like that. The clone ends with mentioning that she wishes she had met him and everyone else sooner at some point." Da di Da di da.
Oh Bolt is shocked that Cups and the Clone are about to kill each other to he did what Sakura did and try to get in the middle of it to stop them. But since he is super awesome main character he is able to stop them. He eye starts acting up when he get close to the Clone and start sparking out lighting for some reason. This banishes the nue with a teleportation jutsu. The portal appears right in front of them and the clone lets it eat her. Bolt jumps into the portal. The portal leaves behind the hair clipping.
Oh why couldn't this just be a one episode thing.
Oh next episode Bot will be fighting the nue one on one until Cups somehow comes. He will be doing the stock shounen speeches next episode.
