ACTION ADVENTURE AT ITS BEST
on 17 February 2014
This Series starts off where the last one left of with the first two episodes 105 to 106 concluding the first Filler Arc that accompanied the ending of the previous Boxset. With that Filler over the rest of the story keeps up with full on Manga Canon material with Episodes 107 to 130 been all about the Sasuke Retrieval Arc.
This Story Arc sees a jealous and power-hungry Sasuke finally give into the darkness and leaves the Hidden Village in order to pursue his goals the only way he sees fit. A Squad led by Shikamaru with Neji, Kiba, Choji and Naruto included head after him to bring him back but are stopped at every turn by the villainous Sound Four Members who provide this Series with awesome one on one action and emerge as interesting and unique Villains, the type of foes that won't be around until at least the set of Villains seen in Shippuden.
This Series is full of character development and moments where we get the chance to see some unique interactions and development of characters we like and those we usually wouldn't see while at the same time with the story leading up to a emotional confrontation between Naruto and Sasuke that will set up the future Arcs of Fillers to come along with what will come to pass in Shippuden.
One of the best Story Arches, this is one you don't want to miss as it has some of the best action moments yet seen along with appearances of some surprising characters that make this particular Boxset just awesome to behold.
The only downside is there is a lot of talking and strategy been made but it is one of the bases that the show is known for and one of the few things that sets it apart from other over the top explosive action Animes and another reason overall why Arc and Naruto as a whole is brilliant.
