Naruto Episode 83 ^NEW^
While there are a few small action sequences scattered throughout the episode, the latest installment is primarily concerned with explaining the why of the current storyline. Although the end of the previous episode revealed that Ohnoki had a hand in Ku's scheme, there was always the possibility that this was a trick on the old man's part or an example of end-of-episode misdirection, so learning that the former Tsuchikage is fully complicit comes as something of a surprise. Of course, the franchise overseers would never allow Ohnoki to become a full-blown antagonist, and the reasons for his actions are believable, if somewhat contrived. The Stone's hitherto-unmentioned plight also highlights one of the series' recurring themes: uneasy peace. Kurotsuchi opts out of the Akuta project because she feels it violates the alliance formed by the Hidden Villages, but Ohnoki realizes that not every village is equally equipped to handle unexpected high-level threats. (He even cites the Otsutsukis as an example.) There's a good chance Ohnoki will come around to Kurotsuchi's way of thinking and see the error of his ways by story's end, but this doesn't invalidate the issues he brought up, and seeing how the various village leaders deal with post-wartime threats continues to be one of the most fascinating aspects of this sequel series.
Naruto Episode 83
As a decidedly busier affair than last week's installment, episode 83 immediately gets down to business and outlines exactly what's at stake. With Ohnoki's health in decline and the artificial beings constantly on the verge of death, the theme of mortality is inescapable, and it's hard to believe we won't be bidding farewell to at least one familiar face after all is said and done.

In Episode 83, two or three episodes after Hidan and Kakuzu capture the Two Tails, Nagato says that only 4 beasts are left. But in the anime, only two beasts were shown to be captured (Shukaku and the Two Tails). So 7 beasts remain. Are there any movies in between or did I miss any episode?
In the beginning of Naruto Shippuden 2 tailed beasts were already sealed. (Manga ch.256 p.16) These tailed beasts are never confirmed but I believe they are Kokuo (5 tails) and Chomei (7 tails). In the anime Chomei was captured during the joint Chūnin Exams between Konohagakure and Sunagakure. This happened before Shippuden started. (Hopes Entrusted to the Future, episode 413 of Naruto: Shippūden) As for Kokuo I have evidence of when every other tailed beast was sealed so he has to have been sealed before Shippuden.
The next time we see the Gedo Mazo is in chapter 329, when it has 4 tailed beasts sealed inside of it. This is where it gets confusing because Saiken (6 tails) is the only tailed beast that could have been sealed in this gap. However, the wiki says he doesn't get sealed until after Sasuke fights Itachi. Saiken gets captured during the Six-Tails Unleashed arc, which covers episodes 144 to 151. I don't think there is anything in these episodes that say this has to occur after Sasuke fights Itachi, so we can say this happens after Garra was captured and before Asuma dies.

The Naruto anime was listed as the 38th best animated show in IGN's Top 100 Animated Series. In September 2005, Japanese television network TV Asahi broadcast a popularity poll based on a nationwide survey in which Naruto placed 17th. Mike Hale of The New York Times described the series as much better than American animation aimed at children, but the animation received some criticism from both the THEM Anime Reviews critics: Christina Carpenter felt Kishimoto's artistic style translated poorly into animation, and Derrick Tucker was also negative, though he felt that at their best, the depictions "[left] little to be desired". As with the manga, some reviewers, such as Theron Martin of Anime News Network, along with Tucker, felt there were too many fight scenes, though Justin Rich argued that the fight scenes were the most important and enjoyable element of the show. Carpenter also commented positively on the characters, though she felt that most were fairly typicals. Hiroshi Matsuyama further reflected the anime's 133rd episode to be one of his favorites not only for the action sequences between Naruto and Sasuke but also the emotional value displayed. 041b061a72
