Naruto Shippuden Uncut Set 9

Orochimaru’s minion Guren will do anything to stop the Leaf ninja from sealing Three Tails, but the Leaf’s top shinobi will be tough to beat! While a sealing team tracks the location of the beast and its host, a guard team led by Kakashi and Naruto fends off attacks from Guren. But it’s no ordinary battle when Naruto finds himself fighting alongside his enemy in a most unusual location—inside the Three-Tailed Beast! The "Find Sanbi" arc (episodes 89 to 112) of Naruto Shippuden is built on material from Masashi Kishimoto's original manga, but fleshed out with new characters and fights. The reptilian villain Orochimaru wants to capture Sanbi, the Three-Tailed Bijuu--a demon that looks like an armored sea-going dinosaur--and use its enormous power for his evil purposes. The ninja of the Hidden Leaf Village want to seal Sanbi away to prevent anyone from misusing the demon's strength. A squadron that includes Naruto, Sakura, Rock Lee, Sai, and Kakashi-sensei square off against Orochimaru's henchmen at the remote lake Bijuu inhabits. Sakura and the other medical ninja try to cast a chakra barrier that will imprison the monster; Kabuto, Orochimaru's lieutenant, hopes to control it with the psychic power of Yuukimaru, a frail orphan boy. Naruto, who carries the nine-tailed fox demon imprisoned within his body, empathizes with Yuukimaru's plight, and wants to rescue him. Guren, a formidable ninja who fights using "crystal-style" jutsu, stands between them. But when Sanbi swallows both of them, Naruto wins over Guren through his concern for Yuukimaru and his devotion to an honorable code of conduct. Although he's everyone's favorite knucklehead, Naruto will never abandon a friend--or a worthy opponent--in a dangerous situation. The filmmakers give the story added visual punch with the faceted pink structures Guren's crystal-style jutsu produces and the animated drawings Sai creates. The ending feels a bit sentimental, but this adventure delivers the mixture of supernatural ninja skills, slapstick comedy, and emotional warmth that Naruto fans expect.
