"Iruka's Decision" (イルカの決意, Iruka no Ketsui) is episode 178 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 178
Naruto is one of the most beloved manga and anime series of all time. The original series, Naruto, aired for more than 220 episodes before continuing on into a new saga known as Naruto: Shippuden. The show followed Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja with dreams of becoming his village leader and a great ninja.
It was known for its lovable characters and excellent storytelling. But it was also known for having copious amounts of filler episodes to break up the rest of the canon story. Sometimes the filler could be great and just as interesting as the canon, but often it fell flat. Here are the ten worst-rated episodes of Naruto according to IMDb.
This episode kicks off the Star Village arc. In the opening, we get a scene of a star falling from the sky. We then learn that some thieves are trying to get their hand on this star as it is important and powerful to the ninja that holds it. Tsunade convinces Naruto to join the mission.
This was one of several recap episodes in the series aired in celebration of Naruto being on the air for four years. The episode itself has no canon relevance and is considered a filler episode. It recaps the top five battles of the entire series so far.
Sometimes the filler was pretty good but this one was one of several that was pointless and not worth watching. Most people skip it when watching the series. We do get some new material of Team 7 with them interviewing each other. Konohamaru and his friends have fun spending time with the team which is cute and the only thing worthwhile in the episode.
Before this arc came up, I had always wondered, from reading the manga and watching the anime, whether or not Iruka ever held any animosity towards Naruto before they had grown closer together. Surely, after all, he would have some form of resentment for the container of the creature that took away his loved ones. It was a question that was never really explored before through any other mediums of this story, so I was intrigued to see some form of an answer in this episode, as heart-wrenching as it may have been. 041b061a72
