Benel Germosen (Talking Smark podcast, Harlem Comedy Festival) and Lawson Leong (Nice to Meet You comedy special) have a hypothesis. Naruto is simultaneously the best and worst anime of all time. To test their theory, they have submitted to watch every episode of Naruto, Naruto Shippuden and Boruto in chronological order. What you're listening to is an exploration into the world to Naruto and anime from the point of view of two New York comedians. So sit back, relax, practice your ninjutsu and scream "Dattebayo!" at the top of your lungs cos' we're Talking Naruto.
Episode 217 - 218: Fuck the MTA
Short set of eps as Benel is still furious at the ticket that he got! The boys discuss big Shonen Protag energy and we move right ahead into our next season of Naruto!
Eps 214 - 216: What's the point of Sakura
After the Danzo battle, Lawson and Benel get a few episodes discussing Sakura and Kakashi. We bury Sakura's booking in this arc, as it defeats the purpose of all the character development she's received in the earlier episodes of Shippuden! Plus bits. Lots and lots of bits.
Episode 212 - 213: Memba Flashbacks
Here's a set of flashback episode from both Naruto and Sakura detailing their relationship with Sasuke. Also, Benel makes Lawson do an improv about porridge. This is not a very good episode.
Episode 210 - 211: Sayonara Danzo
The finale of the Danzo/Sasuke fight with Danzo being caught in an explosion at the Sharingan factory, Benel and Lawson opine about how Sussano'o is bullshit, and Karin makes an O-face!
Episode 204 - 205: Raikage on-sight!
We're concluding the Five Kage Summit with the end of Sasuke vs the Raikage and friends. Sasuke produces Sussano'o, the Raikage is the definition of on-sight, the Five Kage deal with Madara-Tobi's bullshit, and we put the Mizukage over!
Episode 202 - 203: Sasuke vs the Raikage
We're continuing the Five Hokage Summit arc with an unstoppable set of episode featuring Sasuke vs the Raikage of the Hidden cloud. Things get heated when Danzo is caught cheating, Gaara's bodies the Kage of the Hidden Stone, and the Boyz have thoughts about Sasuke.
