Episode 34 – Like a Wall You Need to Climb Over

Welcome back, one and all, to the Naruto discourse. The time has come to dissect Sasuke’s battle with Itachi, as well as its resulting lore dumps about the brothers’ bond and Senju/Uchiha tensions across Konohagakure’s history. We share our queerpinions on:

  • Naruto chapters 384-403
  • Artistic renderings of various types of jutsu during the battle
  • Itachi as a tragic hero figure (and whether that’s an accurate descriptor)
  • Some major irony
  • Developing characters’ motivations after the fact

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, five, six, seven, and eight.

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 403. Content-wise these chapters include lots of body horror and death.
