Naruto Shippuuden Episode 84 Review


Kakuzu’s abilities revealed!

The episode begins with Naruto’s training being shown. Yamato then tells Naruto about the elemental vulnerabilities. Each element has both strengths and weaknesses of the elements in relation to each other. He then goes onto learn that his wind element will lose against Sasuke’s fire element. On the other hand, the wind element is stronger than the lightning element, also one of Sasuke’s adapted elements.


Elsewhere, Choji’s spiked cannonball is ineffective against Kakuzu’s special ability, which enables him to harden his skin with an Earth element technique. Shikamaru then realises that direct attacks will not work against Kakuzu. Kakuzu gets struck by Kakashi’s Chidori right through the heart, as the lightning element has an advantage over the earth element.


Kakuzu then falls to the ground. Kakashi then realises that Shikamaru’s Shadow Mimic technique would not hold out any longer and he advances an attack. Suddenly Kakuzu comes up and kicks Kakashi away. Kakuzu survives and produces four masked entities from his body, one of which dies, as it had been struck by the Chidori.


Kakuzu asks Hidan to sit this fight out, be he refuses. He then attacks Kakashi. Kakuzu supports him with a wind element attack. The attack was so strong that rest of the team also has a hard time keeping their ground. Kakuzu continues his attack, with a lightning element attack directed at Shikamaru and the rest. Kakashi intercepts the attack at the last moment, but with great difficulty. Kakuzu attacks again, but this time with a fire element technique, which reveals that Kakuzu can use all 4 elements.


Summarizing the review, this episode was one of those fighting episodes where the epicness was up to the mark of the Gaara vs. Lee fight. Kakuzu abilites have finally been revealed. The episode was well progressed, as they first introduced the viewers with each element’s advantages and disadvantages, and then continued on to the fight sequence. Kakuzu’s abilities were really great. The next episode will hopefully be kick-ass.

The fight scenes were really well executed, with fluid animation. All of Kakuzu’s attacks were a delight to watch. The music too was great, helping the scenes raise the intensity. This arc with Kakuzu and Hidan really seems to be a treat for the viewer.

And on that note,

    There a mistake on the element chart, earth is lightning, and lightning is earth.
    that’s needed to be switched over
