Hey everyone! This is a quick glimpse of this week's episode since the Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals anime discussion thread is unfortunately dead. This means that weekly reports are going to be posted instead.
Ep. 29: We're here to Welcome Gaara! / The Ultimate Autumn Diet!
Gaara's on his way to the Leaf Village again, and Team Guy is scrambling to make sure he feels welcome.
The girls beg Guy to train them, but their reason is not what it seems.
Ep. 30: Autumn Shinobi Safety Lessons!
With a lot of ninjas getting injured do to carelessness, Lady Tsunade sets out to teach her charges the importance of safety.
Lady Tsunade puts Lee and the gang in charge of the village Halloween celebration, but Deidara and Tobi are on hand to show them what real terror is all about.
- Tobi and Deidara finally made their debut in this spin-off series. I love how their comedic duo still have that old charm.
- Halloween's scenes with Deidara: It was interesting to see Deidara not Tobi explaining what the hell was Halloween to Rock Lee's gang.
- Tobi brings some refreshing change to this series. We already seen so much of Rock Lee, Orochimaru, Neji, Hinata, etc. We don't see much bad guys or minor characters like Kiba, Shino, and the others.
- Mariko Kart Reference: You got to love the Mario Kart reference.
- Even Tobi and Deidara are here, their skits are pretty similar to Orochimaru and Kabuto. See the bizarre scene below.
- Flow of the Episode: I can't remember what particular scenes, but, the events and the skits didn't didn't flow right.
Yaoi Shipping Time
What the hell is?
- Like Orochimaru and Kabuto, Kishimoto seems to relish upon his fan's crazy shipping pairs. This time, we got Tobi X Deidara!
- Cross Dressing Scenes: In addition to Gaara and Tobi's first cross dressing scene, Neji still remains "Queen" of cross dressing.
- Finally, we get a glimpse of Moe Sakura Haruno. Rock Lee just loves Sakura.
- I can't seem to figure out what Rock Lee's Halloween costume makes a reference to.
Thank you guys for reading this report. The two episodes are good with some humorous moments.
