This week we’re bringing you part ten of our Naruto reread, and we’re covering a lot of chapters. The time has come to understand each other’s pain, as well as our thoughts on Pain. We share our queerpinions on:
- Naruto chapters 404-450
- The state of the series’ women in this arc
- Deaths and their dramatic implications
- Sage Mode and frog mountain scenery
- Hoo boy, that ending
You can also find the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict! To catch up on our Naruto coverage thus far, check out episodes one, six, eight, nine, thirteen, nineteen, twenty-three, twenty-nine, and thirty-four.
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 450. Content-wise these chapters and our discussions of them touch on topics of death, violence, war, racism/racial stereotypes, and sexism/sidelining and sexualization of female characters.
