Spent most of the weekend catching up on “Bleach” shows I missed. I’ve seen up to episode 112 and still have aways to go. Yeah I saw the last three episodes related to the “Bounto” arc. Hate that storyline. Thank heavens the show is now back on track with the Arrancar/Vaizard storyline.
Also saw episodes 4 and 5 of “Naruto Shippuuden” which shows an older Naruto and Sakura besting their sensei Kakashi. But the main action is happening at the Hidden Village of Sand where two members of Akatsuki are trying to snatch Gaara who is now the head of the village or Kazekage. Gaara is currently fighting an Akatsuki member who uses clay to make animal figures that move and explode. The fiend in question has hands with mouths. The hands chew the clay and spit out these figurines. Creepy.
There’s a flashback that show Gaara has turned his thinking around thanks to Naruto. He cares about others now instead of just fighting for himself and killing people. I know what happens to him on this story arc but I won’t spoil it for the rest of you. Suffice it to say it’s a tearjerker. Can’t wait for that episode.
Photo I used features characters from “Naruto Shippuuden”. The dude in white with spiky hair is how Sasuke looks now. The blond guy with a lock of hair covering one eye is the Akatsuki creep with the weird hands.
