Hello fellow Naruto fans. Been an awesome week with E3 coming to a close. So much exciting news and so much games being released is almost like Christmas again. So anyway lets get back to business. We have a very heavy Shino episode. Even though this was a fluff episode I will admit it was quite interesting.

So we have Torune. He was once one of Danzo’s bodyguards. The son of Shikuro Abuame. Now I am giving you this little history lesson because that is what they did. Basically gave us a quick bio on him. If they had naruto card game he would be a nice defense card. So why is he so special. He is a host to nano sized venomous beetles with extremely toxic poison. He is able to carry them because his body has the antibodies for the poison. These beetles thrive only on living cells. So as long as there is living cells it will thrive. No living cells it dies. Reminds me of a virus.

Shino doing what he does best. Play with bugs

So we dig back to the past and we see a young Shino being anti social. Torune is his only friend for now. Seeing that both of them grew up together. Shino see him as a brother. I find that most battles are paired up that way. Usually you end up fighting someone you are close to. So we learn alot about Shino and how he is always over thinking things.

Loved this scene where Naruto and Kiba asked Shino whats up with the bugs. Naruto wanted to use the bugs to scare the girls. The while he was saying that his teacher made him scream like a girl. Classic.

You can really see how Shino struggles with the concept of friends. I mean being a bug dude can do that. Haveing them live with you can really be a turn off for some people.

You wouldn't like me when I'm angry!!

Which brings us to the present time. The big bug fight. One of Naruto clones showed up and gave Shino some back up. This was one of those think ahead type of matches. Shino always being one step ahead of his opponent is his strongest ability. I was intrigued by this episode. It gave me a never before seen look into the life of Shino. Yes I know this is a fluff episode and it does nothing to the main arc but sometimes in rare cases it gives us some cool info that can be used to show off to your naruto friends.

Yeah throw that sealing paper like a boss.

When will the fluff end. When will we see some action. The world may never know. For all we know they might find a mermaid on the coast of Cuba. I guess I will continue to watch. At least with the manga still in print I have along time before Naruto will be done with. Stay frosty till then!
