did anyone notice that naruto THREW his rasen shuriken when he first made his entrance along with team 7.....
That was a fuuton rasengan... It did look like it was thrown... But I think that was just a visual demonstration that the animators used to show the combination of the two techniques rather than them actually throwing it.
If you noticed Naruto's and Yamato's arms were sore after using the jutsu (which I think wouldn't have happened if they had actually thrown their jutsu).
I thought the episode was cool except for one thing. In the manga Shikamaru lights up a smoke and the smoke morphs into the form of Asuma. Then Shikamaru says goodbye and Asuma's form dissolves into cigarette smoke as Shikamaru flicks the cig at Hidan and the explosive tags. Definitely one of the cooler scenes in the manga. If they kept it like that, it would have been much more emotional. God damned censors... http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/338/11/ http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/338/14-15/
