Howdy everyone! I wish to make this report longer, but I have to rushed these things. Let's go over these ridiculously, bizarre episodes.

Ep. 31: Nothing Beats Mixed Bathing! / October 27th WAS Orochimaru's Birthday…

Guy-sensei gives the gang a rare break, but will the end up being broken by Orochimaru's "Orochi Hot Springs" trap? Orochimaru realizes his birthday, October 27th, came and went without anyone noticing, and he wants Lee to suffer the same anguish.

  • Kabuto: "Onii-chan"
    Kabuto: "Onii-chan"
    It was weird to see the Sound Four alive and kicking.
  • Any fans of Manda here? This snake gets to share a health tip with the audience!
  • We're spared from some horrible singing that may infringe on copyright issues in favor of a baseball game.
  • The Kabuto and Orochimaru shipping remains strong since Kabuto is still resuming the little sister role.

Bad

  • We get to see Sakura and Tenten transform into Might Guys and bathe in the hotsprings. Chibi fanservice doesn't appeal to me, but two Might Guy chibis bathing each other only appeals to Might Guy chibi fans.

Ep. 32: Sakura's My Nurse! / One Vote for Rock Lee!

Lee fakes being sick so that Sakura will nurse him, only to find that his rival in love is using the same tactic. Sasuke won the last popularity contest, while Lee wasn't even ranked. Can the show's main character find a way to steal 1st place.

  • Tenten thinks "moe" sells

    Interestingly, Neji never cross dress in this episode. It's a rare moment.
  • As a guy who enjoys the occasional RPG game, it's cool to see Naruto and Rock Lee dress up as RPG heroes in a dungeon to describe their challenges faking their sickness.
  • Anybody remember that Reji guy who impersonated Neji in episode 20? Don't know if you're a fan, but he makes a cameo at the parodied McDonald's restaurant.
  • Tenten moefies her campaign poster because like the Japanese companies before her, she believes that moe makes all the difference.

Bad

  • I'm a little curious if those are the actual popularity poll results for the fans. I'm skeptical because there's no votes for Kakashi or Hinata. That, and I don't know anyone who still likes Sasuke, so how did he place so high?
  • Not much campaigning in this episode. It's mostly Naruto and Rock Lee. It would be nice to hear other candidates.

Overview

Welcome to the 1st weekly review of Rock Lee & Ninja Pals! I'm doing this because this episode is pretty good unlike the first episode.

Plot

When Rock Lee fails to get Sakura to like him, he asks Neji and Tenten for love advice. Using Tenten's advice, he plans to make a good impression and woo her. In the second story, Rock Lee sneaks a love letter into Sakura's handbag, and when Rock Lee and Naruto find out that Sakura has someone else's letter, they go out to destroy it.

Can Rock Lee and Naruto do it?

Highlights

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Rock Lee looks great
Rock Lee looks great
  • Rock Lee's attempts to get Sakura's love ended hilariously. I love how Rock Lee mistakenly bitch slap Sakura when he got his hands stung.
  • Rock Lee and Naruto's attempts to get the letter are great. I liked the Kill Bill inspection scene, and how they mistakenly think Sakura's panties was actually a stomach wrap.
  • The Korean fan girls scene is pretty adorable, and I couldn't stop laughing how Neji and Rock Lee talked about their favorite Korean drama stars.

Bad

Nothing bad at all
Nothing bad at all
  • There's not much bad stuff to report in this episode. There are no overused gags in this one unlike the first episode's "poopy" scene or fan disservice.

Bizarre

My gosh, Neji. What did they do to you?!
My gosh, Neji. What did they do to you?!
  • Neji keeps wearing girl costumes, and every time I see him, he looks like a real girl! I felt bad for him, but it is so god damn amusing.
  • A lot of Naruto and Rock Lee's plans are pretty strange especially when Naruto wears a sun costume and tries to make Sakura sweat. I wonder why Sakura didn't notice him.

Thank you guys for reading this strange weekly report. I had no idea that I was going to do a report on this series, but I watched the episode with my little brother as I worked on Fairy Tail Ep. 126's report. I got hooked on the 2nd episode. Overall, this episode is great because of Rock Lee and Naruto's attempts to win Sakura's love.

This is a mini-series I thought I would start with my blogs, I'm not as active as I would like to be so I figured this would give me a more consistent activity. This "series" will be on various teams throughout the Naruto series, highlighting there past, what they have done, members, and so on. These won't be the most popular teams, some you might know, but that may actuallly help you through learning something you weren't familar with. Anyways, for the first blog I thought I might use a team that is notable, and also a fan-favorite, The Sannin. The Sannin is a group of very powerful ninja, easily Kage-level, that used to work together for a common cause, despite there very different attitudes. These three ninja's are Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade.  

Past

 
All three ninja grew up in Konoha, and were all apart of the same team when they were Genin. The team's leader was Hiruzen Sarutobi. Hiruzen was the Hokage when the series was introduced, and was a major supporter of Naruto and his dreams of becoming Hokage. So all three of the students weren't called the Sannin at the time, that would come later in there lives. However, all three showed impressive skills and talent of the ninja arts that no doubt gave Hiruzen a foreshadow of the power they would have one day.  
Hiruzen's Team
Hiruzen's Team

Later in their lives, they would fight in the Second Shinobi World War, where they faught Hanzo. Becuase he was so powerful at the time, it was difficult for any one person or army to stop him, and just three ninja's were able to challenge his power. Becuase of this, he called them Konoha's Sannin, though they are just known as the Sannin for short. That is when Jiraiya met Nagato, Konan, and Yahiko. The Sannin had mixed opinions about what to do with the children, but Jiraiya eventually came to stay with them and train them, not knowing of the destruction they would cause one day.

Done

 
Sannin And Their Summons
Sannin And Their Summons
Shortly after Hiruzen's death, which Orochimaru caused when he attempted to take control of Konoha, Jiraiya was offered the position of the Fifth Hokage. However, he quickly turned down the oppurtunity, and instead decided to go look for and offer the position to Tsunade. When they finally met, all three of the Sannin fought in a battle. Eventually, it came down to Orochimaru fleeing, Tsunade and Jiraiya were both injured, though Tsunade has her medical-nin, still being weak. Before they began to battle with their summons, Tsunade mentioned that after that day they were no longer the Sannin, even though they were still noted as that afterwords. 
 

All three used their respected summons, Orochimaru with Manda, Jiraiya with Gamabunta, and Tsunade with Katsuyu. Showing all their affinities with their respected animal, also tying into the old Chinese folklore of the Slug fearing the Toad, the Toad fearing the Snake, and the Snake fearing the Slug. This is most often presumed to show that they are more or less equal in power, but in different areas may excel than each other. Its also interesting to note that each of Team 7 have trained with one of the Sannin. Naruto trained with Jiraiya, Sakura trained with Tsunade, and Sasuke trained with Orochimaru at some point. Each bringing back abilities and traits that model their respective mentors. 
  
So that is my basic run-up of the Sannin, their isn't a whole lot of time spent on them, but I covered the major appearences of them. Note that I didn't use this blog to specify each member, but the activity when all three were together. 
Hope you enjoyed !

So popular in fact that she is the top result for the letter "H" on Giant Bomb's search engine:

 UHHHH...WHAT THE FUCK?
 UHHHH...WHAT THE FUCK?

So it would appear that Sakura has defeated our beloved hamburger page...where's BiffMcBlumpkin? This has to be against the laws of physics right?
 
Another fun fact is that the character L from Death Noter is the top result for the letter "L"

Welcome to Cougerville - where all we are is the day Naruto Met Granny Tsunade...


So, im going to make really funny as possible. Or at least try.

Is it me, or we young bucks turning into Naruto all of a sudden? I mean all of us, cus the Babyboomer females are fucking horny as a motherfucka these days.

We had RealLiveActiontick on that Peacock Network, Now we have another Cougar RealTick, then we hear Cher with two young guys, it continues.

But there is a reason why Naruto calls her Granny - she's 50 years old! (well 52 by the new series) and keeps her self 25 by some short of trick (I forget the name).

But dont you think Kishimoto when he was retooling the Manga 6 years prior was talking about the Cougars?

I mean its a little sad for these females. They Grandmammas now. I mean god - that pussy was DONE by 35 son. Why cant they grow old with dignity? Its almost the reason why people gravitate to Mrs Obama - she's ugly as sin but they love her arms and what - im not saying here they say it they say it son.

So not being too much of a fan of the series - from the little bit I saw - All Naruto does is play his Denis the Menace role and Tsunade gets angry cause she thinks he cant be the next Leader of Leaf Village. All while the Late, Great and FUCKING AWESOME Pevry Sage remembers the good old days and laughs Tsunade's concerns away. Cue better than it should be music. "On the Next As the Leaf Village Turns: Hinata and Sakura cat fight over Sasuke, while Snake Dude tries to take his son back - but Neji will not allow it! Find out on (We cant say CBS here - we will get sued)...cue dramatic music - fade out...

But in all honesty, we were shocked. We all though she was 25... when these boys keep saying she's 16 when she going on 11. 

What? are you Denying that older women cant do the ugly?

No i'm not saying that. Its just that has it gotten that bad in relationships we have to look older? Remember the episode when...yeah ran into two watermelon sized brick-walls. Thats us. Because we are running into those bricks. 

Not saying something we don't know - but most females peak when there 16. The Government can lie about it, but there is too many fucking truths to this. I can say this from experience - when I was 16 all  the females looked nice. Its hard for a brotha because if there so much good estrogen and pheromones waiting to picked off, and you got Closed Circuit Cams all over the place waiting for you do do something wrong... It leads into combustible situations. 

As we grow older, well things sag. Bad. some are able to keep great figures. Some get enhancements. Others have great genes...but they sag son. Reason number 151 anime is in trouble in both the states and Japan is because there isn't enough big chested chicks for the Americans and Japan brings it young, mostly. Japan used to have what the US wants - but that was when the Gekgia style was being animated during the 80's to the very late 90's. 

But there are "Tsuandes" in the real world - Older women who defy age - such as Morgan Fairchild (62) Cher (51) Susane Summers (In the full house spinoff i cant remember on the top of my head, 60). I don't think there is anything wrong with it - just because ones old doesn't mean she has to feel old, i just want it to be graceful and dignified. 

But the Media is doing all these Cougar Chasing for the Lulz. And they say 4Chan is the den of evil. 

But then again, when Naruto cant get Sakura (even at this point) and Hinata hasn't been worked as a suitable companion (dont give that Kissing Cousing BS!) all i hear is OMG LULZ HELL NO and moar plz from the fanboys.

But you have to admit... they do kinda look...cute togheter...(eww no did i say that...?)
