"To Rise Up" (立つ, Tatsu) is episode 424 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 424
In any case, all thoughts of fillers, clip shows and flashbacks can be pushed aside this week, as Naruto and Sasuke team up against an increasingly desperate Madara. Fans who have longed to see the series' two most important characters join forces to take down the main antagonist are sure to walk away happy. Despite being weakened by Guy's Evening Elephant technique, Madara still poses a substantial threat to our heroes. As is the case with many combat-heavy episodes, the animation is in top form this week. The new Six Paths Sages chakra upgrades to Naruto's Rasengan and Sasuke's Chidori are visually stunning, and viewers will marvel at the crackle of the energy blasts. Naruto singlehandedly cutting down the enormous Divine Tree is arguably one of the coolest scenes in recent memory. Both visually and animation-wise, the entire episode feels more polished than usual.
Regrettably, the pacing weakens toward the end of the episode. In a move straight out of an old-fashioned weekly serial, Sakura takes a frustratingly long time to stab Obito's Rinnegan eye. He begs her to do it. She's thought of him as nothing but an enemy ever since he revealed himself. If Madara gets his hands on the eye in question, he'll get a boost in strength and have access to deadlier techniques. She's a medical ninjutsu genius who recently cut a hole in Naruto's chest and stuck her hand in there to manually restart his heart, so she's clearly not squeamish. Plus, it's already been established that an eyeball-swap is tantamount to getting a new pair of glasses in this world, so even if she destroys the Rinnegan, chances are she'll be able to find Obito another eye if either cares to replace it. Despite all this, Sakura stands motionless while clutching a kunai in her shaking hand, since she just can't bring herself to put Obito's eye out. This, naturally, allows Madara time to steal Kakashi's eye and make his way to the other dimension where Obito is hiding, effectively ending the episode on a forced cliffhanger.
For the most part, episode 424 is what more episodes of the series should strive to be. It's paced well until the end, and the action sequences are a sight to behold. If the events were less ambiguous and basic logic were utilized in several key scenes, it would be a near-perfect episode.
After back-to-back filler episodes last week, Naruto Shippuden returned to the main story this Thursday with Naruto and Sasuke revived and already possessing the powers of Hagoromo - the Sage of the Six Paths. Still recovering from a brutal battle with Taijutsu master Might Guy, Madara found testy foes in his second confrontations with Naruto and Sasuke, but the legendary Uchiha always had something to pull off his sleeves under pressure.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 424 gave fans a first look at the abilities of Sasuke and Naruto after receiving the power of the Sage of the Six Paths and how strong they had become against Madara. Unless you already read it in the manga. Here's what I learned upon watching the episode.
As the old saying goes, two heads is better than one, more so if they are two very powerful ninjas. Naruto and Sasuke once again teamed up to stop Madara, who had become more powerful after absorbing the Divine Tree at the behest of an unknown voice, whose identity will be later revealed in the succeeding episodes.
I hardly read the manga. I watch the anime series, Naruto: Shippuden. In episode 424, Kakashi's Sharingan (previously Obito's Sharingan) is stolen by Madara. Then in episode 425, Naruto uses his new power and give Kakashi's old eye (as far I know and from my view, it is a normal eye).
Also, the sharingan that Kakashi had only allowed him to read the movements of his opponents in a precise manner. His ability to copy the jutsu was aided by the sharingan, but in the end he had to commit it to memory so that he could use it later on. Also he must have had excellent chakra control to read the hand signs of a jutsu once and copy it immediately. Also, he himself mentions while aiding naruto create his rasen shuriken, that he could use chakra of elements other than thunder. We have seen him use water style, earth style and fire style. So, his strength is not solely because of the sharingan. Like a tool, the sharingan helped his cause.
Kakashi did not have his sharingan anymore. However, Kakashi did still have all the abilities he was shown copying and the last ability he copied in the naruto series is water dragon jutsu which was in the first series and it made it that far without copying another jutsu. I bet there are thousands of more jutsu that Kakashi has than the amount he's shown.
In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, the most unfortunate thing happened during the battle with Isshiki Otsuki, in episode 218 titled Partner. The villain lost his Rinnegan after being struck in the left eye by Momoshiki-possessed Boruto.
A large chunk of the original stories in the Naruto series involved young students learning the skills they would need to be successful shinobi, including the endlessly quotable Naruto Uzumaki, but NarutoShippuden is where the stakes are raised. Most episodes involve life-or-death fights, and those stakes, not knowing if a beloved character would make it out alive, are part of what keeps the audience invested in the story. In addition to this, characters learn more, grow more, and have much more intricate fights in Naruto Shippuden. The best episodes of the series truly reflect the emotional growth of the main characters as well as showcase some of the coolest fighting in the franchise.
When Pain came to Konoha, it created a memorable arc. Not only did the series seemingly lose Kakashi, but Naruto appeared to be bested by a dangerous enemy. In this episode, Pain and Naruto come to something of a standstill as the former explains his motivations. While most of the episode in the long-running Naruto arc focuses on the talk between Naruto and Pain, other characters aren't completely abandoned. Shikamaru Nara and Inoichi Yamanaka have the B plot of the episode as they track down the real Pain while his Six Paths are otherwise occupied. Despite the episodes that feature mostly slow speeches, this one keeps the audience on the edge of their seat.
Because Naruto spent the bulk of his childhood being ostracized by his village and constantly having to prove himself as more than the nine-tailed fox inside of him, this episode could have acted as his happy ending. It lands among the best Naruto Shippuden episodes solely because Naruto is finally seen by the village the way he always wished: respected and as a hero. Naruto isn't just welcomed back to the village after he defeats Pain, he's carried around and cheered. It's a turning point for the way he was treated by others in the franchise.
Fans of Naruto fight sequences were in for a treat with the arc surrounding Pain. This episode is one of the best of Naruto Shippuden since it isn't just Naruto throwing whatever he has at an enemy or talking him to death, he actually gets to strategize a little. The episode is also a peek into how Naruto's mind works as he battles Pain and realizes just which of the Paths of Pain he needs to take out first. Even though he couldn't sustain Sage Mode throughout the episode, fans can't completely count him out.
This episode goes a long way toward making Itachi a fan favorite. Sasuke, after all, ends up defecting from Konoha and wanting revenge against the village he thinks betrayed his brother. This episode reveals the truth to Sasuke, however, that Itachi was protecting the village and his little brother all along. Itachi saying goodbye to his brother is heartbreaking for Sasuke, but it provides a big leap forward in the story for the audience and allows Itachi's character arc in Naruto to be better understood. Knowing the truth allows Sasuke to move on.
Flashback episodes became a big part of the Naruto franchise as it continued. Some of them clarified story ideas, while others were filler episodes meant to flesh out little-known characters. One of the best Naruto Shippuden episodes gives fans a look at just what happened the night Naruto was born. Focused on Fourth Hokage Minato Namikaze's point of view during the night, the episode shows him getting Naruto to safety just after his birth and then battling a mysterious masked stranger. The audience knows that the masked stranger was Tobi, but Minato didn't, adding to the tension of the episode as he fights to save the village from someone who could control the nine-tailed fox.
Being dead doesn't stop Madara Uchiha from being stronger than nearly everyone else in the series. This episode allows fans to see just what he can do. Right in the middle of the Fourth Shinobi World War, a reanimated Madara Uchiha takes on the Fourth Division himself, and it cements Madara as one of the most powerful Naruto characters. Naruto doesn't have enough chakra left at this point in the fight to use the nine-tailed fox to fight him, so this means dozens of other shinobi go up against Madara instead - and lose. The fighting is intense and impressive to watch. 041b061a72
