Enjoyed this episode because it was rather touching!

But next week seems like it's filler time!

One of the most epic arcs in the entire series. Am rather sad to see it end, just as I was when it did in the manga.

BUT.

BUT.

It's that time again folks!
You know it!
You.. probably don't love it!

Can I hear a
F-
Fi-
FILLERRR CITTTYYYY!

(I don't think the next arc will be a long filler arc, but I do think it will be followed by one - I'm guessing for at least another 10 episodes, maybe till the next season if we're lucky)

This episode was great. I can't believe it but... i almost got sad and happy. Just to follow the emotions of the people. From hated to sympathy. From outcast to hero. From Kyuubi to Naruto. I should've voted amazing...because it was amazing.

Naruto... he is finally to the point where Gaara was saved. When Gaara was brought back as a hero. When EVERYONE came for Gaara. That just might happen one day. The day that Naruto fails.. and at that point.... that the rest of the world. Let's say... all the ninja villages... sent EVERYONE...not just ninja's but villagers aswell to recover Naruto from enemy hands.

Villagers looking in trees, caves.. ninja's on high patrol day/night non-stop. To find this hero.

I actually teared up, lol.

And what do we have here, Ino? Seems like a really good back up if NaruSaku doesn't work out.
Or you could just stop going for Sakura in general. You and Ino have so much in common! Like, blonde hair.

At the same time, though, the animation was still crappy as hell. Tenten looked pissed when Gai and Lee
were talking about Naruto.

Aww, just as I was getting excited that we had finally gotten through one of the best arcs this far in Shippuden, I had to discover that we're going through fillers...

What, did Iruka feel like he didn't get enough screen time at the end of this episode? Is selfishness taking a predominant toll in preventing the movement of the storyline?? Goddammit, Jim, and I not a doctor???

Revel in nostalgia while you still can!

In the meantime, I hope this isn't the last we see of Konan... :S

This episode makes me want to forget about the Uchiha clan. If Naruto (the story) had ended here, I would've been happy. It's as good an "ending" as I could hope for.

I think Iru sensei's filler won't be a bad idea. It'll add to the story. I mean I started following this anime in 8th grade, and now I'm entering graduate school getting ready to take my FSOTs to become a diplomat. This show is a kids show, but coming from my background, and having it tough I can kind of relate to this show, and its kinda why I was and am able to do the things I do today. Sounds lame, but crap if anyone is complaining lets hear them speak 4 languages and live in 13 different countries, I do a lot of research. Anyway great episode!!

literally made 8 years of following Naruto worth it.
ciao!

Great end to a great arc. It's so good even the trolls couldn't bear to give it a bad rating.

Ok end to an average arc that could have been epic.

Let's not get carried away here. The phoenix down x99 h@x was a cop out.

You would have thought they would at least sort the animation out for this episode too.

I rarely hate on this awesome series, but I guess I bought into the hype for this arc.

The highlight of the arc is definately the battle between Pein & Transforming Naruto/Kyuubi.

I'm not sure how the ending of the battle was in the manga but...flying Rasengan?

Come on.

Enough with the Spamengan.

Oh look here comes fillers.

*sigh* Well at least there's Fairy Tail & KHR to keep me occupied.

Don't even get me started on Bleach...

Nice ending, liked the hug scene and that Ino moment, especially when Shika and Chou went "Huh?!"
ShikaIno fans, looks like your chances are becoming smaller by each second

Also looks like animators decided to go at full power and even made Ino yjrow him in the air with others

And it is probably the first time when I didn't mind the repetitive flashbacks.

Same here, well not 8 years. 5 years, I'm going into my third year of college, and I started watching the show in the 9th grade. I probably wouldn't ever start watching the show now, if I hadn't started then. This episode really tugged at the ol' heart strings.

Thought the first half was great, the second not so much. Way too cheesy towards the end for me, but then I always preferred Naruto as the outcast/underdog - this hero business is too much.

Best part - Kakashi talking with his dad was very well done.

flashbacks went from rescuing gaara to jaraiya dying; missed the hidan-kakuzu arc. i guess most of the villagers dont know that he developed a tech that 4h couldnt even though regular rasengan seems to be recognized by all konoha nin who managed to see one

I feel the exact same way. It felt like a great end to the series.

Naruto's story is over, he got everything he wanted.

What I would love to see is a time skip 10 years into the future where Naruto is Hokage and married to Sakura or Hinata.

The story would fallow a new character going through the academy. A girl main character could be interesting. All the current characters would make random appearances.

Great Episode, unfortunately following a possible string of fillers, but it looks like the animators are trying to squeeze in more NaruHina moments in the fillers
