Just a trivia about relationship between Shika(deer) and Nara. We Japanese tend to associate Nara with Shika(deer) easily since many of us have an experience of visiting Nara Park due to school journey in our childhood. Does it make sense that deer appear in the battle of Shkamaru vs Hidan?

Quote:
Nara Park (奈良公園, Nara Kōen?) is a public park located in the city of Nara, Japan, at the foot of Mount Wakakusa, established in 1880. Administratively, the park is under the control of Nara Prefecture. The park is one of the "Places of Scenic Beauty" designated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The over 1,200 wild sika deer (シカ or 鹿 shika) freely roaming around in the park is also under designation of MEXT, classified as a "Natural Monument." While the official size of the park is about 502 ha, the area including the grounds of Tōdai-ji, Kōfuku-ji and Kasuga Shrine, which are either on the edge or surrounded by Nara Park, is as large as 660 ha.
From the page of Nara Park of Wikipedia

It was an okay special. Pretty slow paced, episode 87 in particular, but still quite entertaining. This arc should be over in the next couple of episodes, and then a filler arc involving team 8 and the Three-tails will start.

Did you say 3-tails O_O? Sure is not a typo? Shouldn't it be (3)^2-Tails?

Yup, it's the three-tails. It seems they are changing the manga story a bit.

Wow the soundtrack was all over the place. I particularly like Naruto's technique's sound effect. Sounded like a helicopter was about to land straight on your face. I guess Kakuzu thought the same.

"Oh noes, I can't let that helicopter land on my face!"

Anyways, very entertaining episode as always, gonna wait to see the Subs before getting a clear idea, but I'm very pleased with the anime at the moment. In fact, I was kind of surprised that after they had sealed the two-tails they ignored this other bit. They skipped the brief hilarious intermission of Akatsuki in their mission to get the Three-tails. Now things make more sense, they were holding it up as extra.

Compared to part I anime, it seems part II anime has gotten a lot bolder in its use of fillers and deliberately mixes up the thing. The Sora filler arc worked closely with the story to introduce the "King" concept, and the next arc is using manga material to expand on a mysterious character. Interesting.

In short, I'm now as clueless as the anime-watchers, but at the same time pretty happy because team 8's later appearance is in a very long time. A filler arc with them in it is most appropriate.

Seems the anime finally figured out the right way to use fillers? Don't you think it's a case of "too little, too late"?

Why would it be too late? We're just getting started with part 2.

Just watch them with an open mind. The Sora arc may have had a lame ending, but it was pretty good for the most part.

Hm.. You're being so pessimistic! I'd rather think it's a case of "Better late than never"!

Besides, as neshru stated, part 2 has just begun. You should consider it a stand-alone series. Part I is the beginning of the story, but essentially, the way the story is told and how the fights take place has changed drastically.
