They looked like decent episodes. 57 had impressive art and animation while 58 was average.
No idea how good the story is, since I don't know what they were saying, but these episodes looked slow... like they added a lot of "filler" scenes to the already original story, and so even after these 2 episodes the interesting stuff will probably start next week. It would be much better if they kept the story fast paced, instead of wasting time with Sai making out with naruto.

It wasn't too bad of an episode.. though parts of it are really slow.

Spoiler for some thoughts:

Wow, I loved those episodes. Loving the anime team for picking up the pieces and giving some background to those characters. I seriously like Sora's techniques as well. Sweet character development and animation.

Really some kind of combination here. Get to see Naruto use some pretty solid hand to hand combat in the second half of the episode. Of course then just clashes right with how useless his clones are. If they were actual representations the real Naruto would have died long ago. Sure they go after one hit, but any actual skill seems to vanish. Can't even serve as cannon fodder anymore. It's a problem since if they kept a good level of skill then he'd be able to overwhelm plenty of opponents.

Well at least got some fleshing out of the past of Asuma.

They were good episodes, but I'm just bitter at the fact that it's the same thing that happens again. Isn't it enough for Naruto, Sasuke, Lee, Neji, Haku, and Gaara to have a lonely past? It's kinda overdone IMO.

Action scenes are picking up, Sai showed lots of funny stuff there, but we'll see how good the plot is. Yes, giving background to Asuma and friends was interesting, and that leads to a question: Is this a filler? There might be filler scenes, but is the overall main story here a filler?

It is, none of this happened in the manga. In the manga there are only a few pages dedicated to the temple and the monks.

Yes we have a filler on our hands... but instead of mindless off-plot fillers, we have something related to characters of the main storyline.

Anyone knows a site where I can watch the episodes in streaming? Not youtube.
Some weeks ago i found a site that had the week episode in streaming and I watched it there, but I can't remember which site -.-
Also I can't download them because my computer doesn't stand the new HD episode type.

Is it just me or did Naruto fought better than his usual self in this episode, especially in terms of Taijutsu ? He was litterally playing with Sora taijutsu-wise...

Naruto's Taijutsu has always been good when he's calm, it ha never really been bad. It only appeared bad because usually he fought people on a higher lvl than himself. BUT MAN, his clones....wow just for looks not even cannon fodder, no Taijutsu at all even when their suppose to retain all the skill and ability equal to that of the original if it doesn't require chakra. Only thing that gets divided when clones are made is chakra....

Do you all remember when Naruto used Tajuu Kage Bushin no Jutsu on half-transformed Gaara and pwned him. Well that's the last time I remember this jutsu actually having any significance in a fight, and that's just sad lol
