This episode had me thinking. Can we see the same deep heart throbbing love affair between Naruto, Hinata and Sakura. I can only dream. So we all know this episode was coming. This was basically an open shut case. So we have the past lovers being joined once again but not on the terms she always wanted.

Yeah he got murked.

After Yugao saw her lover dead she swore that she will avenge her lover at any cost. So she fought and fought till one day after the fighting she couldn’t stand seeing a sword any more. Which in my opinion was kind of good. The human mind can only take so much and the only way for her to cope was to not fight and not remind herself of her dead lover. You have to understand in Naruto when someone is in love they go hard. I wonder of the world we live in took this concept to heart if we would be better off. Sorry if I sound soft hearted but watching episodes like this makes me all fuzzy inside. Don’t worry 5 minutes playing Gears of War can fix that. After an intense battle Sakura and the other ninja team was able to subdue the other two ninjas. Leaving Hayate Gekko with the scroll running free.

There is a time to mourn and a time to kill. It is Time to Kill.

So after a good pep talk from Sakura Yugao realized that she had to be the one to finish him. I want to add here that Sakura need to just stop this thing for the douche bag Sasuke. I mean really the dude tried to kill you and if Naruto didn’t save you we wouldn’t be here cause Naruto would of killed Sasuke one time. But I guess that is how she perceive love.

One of the many flash backs that reminded her of the time they has with each other.

So like every episode there comes the ending. The point where you know someone will die. What will overcome. What will be the defining factor in the fight. That is where we are now. The point where both lovers are facing each other in battle. I understand that this is a semi fluff episode but it still have meaning. It goes to show that even though this is about Naruto we can pull from other characters that are in the background. Adding depth and meaning to the narutoverse. I guess that is why I love this anime so much.

This is where you say "FINISH HIM" in the mortal kombat voice.

I won’t lie I kind of liked this episode. I know we didn’t get the main arc this time around but it goes to show the narutoverse is full of life. I guess till the next episode stay frosty!!
