Episode 43 – This is Shinobi World Messiness

We’re back from our impromptu hiatus and we’re going back to our roots with more Naruto talk. This time around we’re discussing the Gokage summit and the battles immediately afterward. Plus, Madara declares it, so we’ve officially reached the Fourth Great Shinobi War! We share our queerpinions on:

Naruto chapters 451-483
– Seeing Gaara again
– Naruto’s gay pining and anxiety
– More underwhelming portrayals of female characters
– Deception by ocular jutsu
– Kishimoto’s entrenchment of the phrase “No homo” into canon

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, thirty-four, and forty.

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 483. Content-wise these chapters and our discussions of them touch on topics of death, violence, war, body horror, and sidelining and sexualization of female characters.
