Naruto Shippuden 131 & 144: Honored Sage Mode!; Go Mr. Gamaken! & Wanderer; Utakata’s Bubbles are Deadly! O__O

Ja everyone!  It time for Noneatencookie’s Anime Breakdowns!  Anyways, I’ll start with last week Poll…


  • The option that got the least amount of votes was…  Utakata would let Team 7 help him.
  • The second least amount of votes goes to… Utakata will die because he won’t let Team 7 protect him.
  • And, the most votes went to… Idk

Well, on the the breakdown…

I’ve decided that I will be doing my favorite episode in this breakdown too.  Since I wasn’t here when it aired, I really want to do it.  So, if you’d rather just have the breakdown for this weeks episode, scroll down until you find it.

Episode 131, ‘Honored Sage Mode!’.

Video link:

Well, the episode starts out with the amazing animation for fights like Sasugay v. Deidara and Hidan and Kakuzu v. Team 7 and 10.  But, it truly begins with Jiraiya putting extra markings on his face.  Gamaken asks what he’s doing, only for Jiraiya to tell him he summoning the ‘Two Elders’  Pein sees this and jumps into his summoned Chameleon.  With that, he becomes invisible.  Pein likes to make things difficult.  So, to make it easier, Jiraiya makes a detection barrier to sniff him out.

To protect Jiraiya while he has to keep his hands together, is Mr. Gamaken, the lovable albeit clumsy giant toad!  Even thought Jiraiya believes in Gamaken, Gamaken’s not so sure about his abilities.  But, as he says, ‘As clumsy as I am, I’ll try.’.

Soon after, Pein summons a whole slue of animals to help him.  The first of these is a Multi-Headed Dog that looks a lot like Tiny (Remember him?)  but mean and huge.

After a little while, the Mr. Gamaken v. ‘Not so Tiny’ Tiny fight, Mr. Gamaken gets frustrated and uses technique that goes a little something like this…

Even with Mr. Gamaken’s Kamehameha, Tiny doesn’t go down and soon, Tiny the Dog from Hell is as big as Gamabunta!

Mr. Gamaken can’t fight any longer, so Jiraiya, having completed his Jutsu, Reverse Summons him back to Mt. Myoboku.  Soon after that, Jiraiya uses an Anime Exclusive Jutsu named ‘Summoning: Crushing Toad Stomach’ to swallow the Hell Hounds.  So, they are down, temporarily.

Even though the Hell Hound is subdued, Pein still has some more tricks up his sleeves.  He has a unusual bird summoning.  It looks like a Half Bird/Half Raisin! 😛

What I loved about this episode is that there was some awesome filler action.  It was really close to the Manga, but with minor tweaks.

Even though Jiraiya strong, he must be getting tired running all the time.  But, here’s some comical relief…

But, back to the breakdown, Jiraiya’s got his hands full with this Rhino.  And he’s…

Now there’s some flashbacks, so we’ll skip those.  Finally, Jiraiya’s Jutsu is complete and he dismisses Mr. Gamaken (Bye bye big lovable toad! ^_^)  Jiraiya summons Lord Fukasaku and Lady Shima.  Now, he enters the powerful Sage Mode!

With Shima and Fukasaku’s help, they dispose of Pein’s Chameleon thingamajig.  Even by Jiraiya’s word, the Toads are a force to be reckoned with.  This is the beginning of the battle…

That’s where the episode ends.

Now, Episode 144, ‘Wanderer’.

This weeks episode is entitled, ‘Wanderer’.  The episode begins with a girl named Hotaru blowing bubbles.  She is quickly approached by Utakata, the Six-Tailed Slug Jinchuriki, telling her a man named Tonbei needs her.

The scene switches to Tonbei sending a Messenger Bird to an unknown person…

The scene then goes to a group of ninja running towards the tower.  They activate a trap and kunai begin to pelt them.  they evade them all.

We see Tonbei talking with Utakata and Hotaru.  He talks about someone trying to get to their fort.  He also states that the Messenger Bird was sent to the Leaf Village (Of course.  Why else would they show this arc?)  Utakata asks why they’re attacking.  Tonbei says it’s because of the Forbidden Jutsu that is passed down in their clan.

The group of ninja are seen next to a pit which supposedly has a barrier on top of it.  One of the shinobi asks a man named Nango if it was overly cautious.  Nango doesn’t respond, but another guy does.  The female in the group tells the guy who asked Nango, Chushin, to stop rambling.  Now, we learn that the girls name is Benten (TenTen’s mom?)

Okay, what have we learned so far?  The quiet ones name is Nango.  The kunochi’s name is Benten.  And the questioning guy is Chushin.  The other guy is nameless for now.  We’ll call him… Bob Billy Joe.

The four ninja get into a position and use hand seals to combine their Chakra for something…

Inside the fort, a barrier breaks.  That prompts Tonbei to say they aren’t normal people.

Benten uses a Jutsu to blast rocks everywhere.  The group jumps on the rocks and make it across the pit.

Tonbei gives Hotaru a bag with the Forbidden Jutsu.  As Tonbei and Hotaru begin to argue about escaping, Utakata begins to walk away.  He tells Hotaru to come, and she does.  As they leave, Tonbei tells Utakata to protect Lady Hotaru.  He tells him his ‘debt’ will be repayed.

As the group climb up the hill, Chushin gets hit by a piece of the mountain and almost falls off.  He survives though.  We then learn that the leaders name is Akaboshi.

Tonbei tells Utakata and Hotaru to be careful and not leave Utakata’s side.  She tells Tonbei that he needs to follow them, but he says she’s more important.  He then collapses the path and thinks to himself that he will protect Hotaru, no matter what…

Then the opening credits…

At the Leaf Village, Shizune gives Tsunade the letter from Tonbei.  She immediately sends out Team 7 and 8.  While they’re heading to their destination, Naruto remembers him looking the the Uchiha Crest at the Uchiha Stronghold. Katsuyu then arrives.  She tells them about Hotaru and all that crap.  She also tells them of the Forbidden Jutsu, capable of destroying an entire village.  Naruto then asks if Kakashi is coming, prompting Tenzo to sneak up on them and ask if it was bad with just him.

Back at the Leaf Village, Tsunade talks to Shizune about what’s happening.  She tells Shizune of the Forbidden Jutsu, which is capable to destroy an entire village.

Back with Naruto and Co., Yamato makes a bridge to cross the pit.  Which Naruto thanks him for, but not with him doing his Scary Face no Jutsu.  They get to the top just as the group fled.  They spot Tonbei and Sakura heals him.  He then explains about Hotaru, leaving out Utakata.

With Utakata and Hotaru, Utakata is on a tree and blows some bubbles to scout the people following them.

Hotaru then asks Utakata to be her master, which he shows an emotion finally and yells at her.  She tells him that she wants to be his pupil so he could teach her Jutsu.  She then remembers when he saved her…

Naruto then attacks Utakata, who easily dispatches all his clones.  Yamato then arrives and says his sorries to Utakata, not knowing Hotaru was travelling with someone.  Utakata gets into a bubble and floats away, saying that he would never be a fool to be called a master.

The episode ends here.

Well, I’ll add the Weekly Poll tomorrow.  And now, I’ll be starting Caption Contests in every breakdown, here’s the first…
