Episode 19 – All Sai Knows is Crop Top, Fake Smile, Kill Sasuke, & Lie

Believe it! We’re back with part six of our ongoing reread through Naruto. We’ve reached the Tenchi Bridge Reconnaissance Mission arc, a.k.a. Sasuke Retrieval Attempt #2. Sai and Yamato join Team Kakashi, and the Sannin’s resident stunt queen Orochimaru is back on his bullshit. We share our queerpinions on:

  • Naruto chapters 282-313
  • Sai’s character arc and whether or not it’s effectively executed
  • Anachronisms throughout the manga’s world
  • A heartfelt reunion

You can also find the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict! To catch up on our Naruto coverage thus far, check out parts one, two, three, four, and five.

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. Our discussion this episode is full of Naruto spoilers up through chapter 313.
