I'm Mitsuko, the Co-Producer for Naruto Shippuden. Here's a quick rundown of Naruto Shippuden Box Set 5, which hits stores today. It includes episodes 274~285. It starts with Naruto and Sakura back in the Leaf after their confrontation with Sasuke in Orochimaru's hideout. We also begin a new story arc with Sora, a young monk in training at the Fire Temple who has a something a little too in common with Naruto, making this box set a great starting point for people who are intimidated by over 400 episodes of Naruto, without starting at episode 1.
One of my favorite episodes in this set is episode 285, Lockdown of Darkness. We see the Leaf Village thrown into chaos, and the Leaf ninja quickly regrouping and strategizing to defend themselves against the mysterious Shinobi and their terrifying attacks. Above all you MUST check out the great scene with Shikamaru and Choji in the BBQ Restaurant. Trust me, its awesome.
Hope you guys also check out the Production Art and Omake in the extra features. I had tons of fun working on them.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! And as coincidence would have it, today is also a special day for One Piece, for we celebrate the birthday of our hero, protagonist and intrepid outlaw Monkey D. Luffy! There's many reasons why Luffy rocks our world: his boundless optimism and determination, his crazy-stretchy powers, his ability to overcome any situation thanks to the help of the crack pirate crew he's assembled, and his fierce loyalty to comrades as well as innocents needing assistance. Not to mention his, er, incredible appetite! Kind of hard to imagine that such a noble do-gooder is one of the most hunted and feared pirates on the high seas! But such is the price of fame.
Here's a few birthday wishes for the little big man from some folks here at VIZ Media who are intimately connected with One Piece:
"Happy birthday, Luffy! It's party time! Here's a big cake with lots of candles. And don't worry, we also have enough meat to fill you up. Hopefully this is the year you become king of the pirates!"
-- Alexis Kirch (One Piece editor)
"Your Gum Gum attacks are the best in the biz, and your love of meat is quite charming. Happy birthday to the future King of Pirates!"
-- Lex Scheuble (VIZ Media Online Marketing Manager)

Vol. 47: Cloudy, Partly Bony
