Those of you saying it's bad animation need to get a grip, this is clearly one of the best animated episodes in a VERY LONG WHILE even though the story is 'lame, crap, sucks' and also the art style being different, compare this episode to previous ones and you will see what some of us are talking about.

I'd be happy because I would actually start enjoying Naruto like I used to when I first started watching the series.

This is the first filler I enjoyed! Don't know why you're hating so much. The battles were really good and the "side story" was also fine.

why hidan? =.= isnt kabuto standing on the surface of the big reservoir? imo he should "make" kisame~

Also, when did Hidan actually die? I thought he was doomed to be a severed immortal head in a hole the rest of his miserable existence.


He died very slowly from lack of nutrition.



but a person that kabuto is 'creating' does not have to be dead (it is not edo tensei). he uses his snakes to adapt any human dna and then he let them grow into a human.

and i suppose hidan wont die just because of lack of nutrition >.<

That was really nice, probably the best naruto filler ep I've seen. Hopefully the arc is good.

It'll probably have a better story line than the real thing lmao. Anyways, I am still hopeful they get back on track soon... need more content for the storm 3 game coming out in march.

Considering it has all the features of filler, it expands on the point of war being a pile of crap for civilians as well.

There were good filler ARCs in the original Naruto as well. So I'm hoping for a great story line on this one.

Summer 2011's filler was pathetic... I hope they don't make the same mistake twice!

WTF going on with this show .They must cancel this anime like Bleach bcs ppl don't want to watch fillers.
Naruto manga have 1 year and half life but anime is already dead bcs of the stupid fillers.


You know instead of saying that the anime needs to be canceled, why not just stop watching it, if you dislike it so much, it shouldn't be that hard.

It always amazes me when people claim that something should be canceled, just because they don't like when something happens. if people really want an anime or manga to end so badly why not just stop watching it, its not like anyone is forcing you to watch it.

Stop complaining, people, open your mind and give this episode a chance. It isn't that bad!


Ummm but it is that bad. I watched it all the way through. Naruto fillers are painfully awful. The least they could do is finish an arc. I'm just about to give up on the anime and read the manga instead. Which is disappointing because Naruto has some of the best animation I've ever seen in an anime.

If you haven't watched this episode yet, don't. It's not worth your time.


You do realize that this is just your opinion right?

This looks like a good filler arc, but I don't understand how this adds up with the main story. At what period in the series is this taking place exactly?
Btw, correct if I'm wrong, but isn't Hidan supposed to be still alive (only with his head chopped off and buried)?

Mhm, this episode didn't continue with the war but I actually liked this episode^^ Though I am confused as to when this episode/arc is taking place.. :\ Like some others, I felt more like I was watching a Naruto Shippuuden movie than an episode^^

The art is so much better this episode and I hope they keep up with this kind of animation from now on. Actually looks good for a filler. Just my opinion though.

Not that crappy artwork and animation style again. And wtf is wrong with Kabuto? That's NOT fucking Kabuto!

The story with the little kids was kind of touchy though.

I think that arcs appears before the episode "Storage", the meeting between Kabuto and Tobi, because I think Kabuto wanted to be sure, that he perfected his Technique, before he faces Tobi.
I think he just recreated Hidan. The real hidan is still alive buried somewhere in a forest.

Yes we all know it's a filler.
We'll have fillers until the end of Christmas.

WTH! Hidan's naked as the day he was born.
Seriously, 3/4 of the episode had some strange ppl that we don't know.

So I was planning on watching an episode of Naruto but ended up with something trying to be Grave of the Fireflies.

Well, I enjoyed that film I guess so I'll see how this goes...

They should have just done this filler before Naruto went to the island. SO this filler would be kind of canon.

I feel like this was a potential movie that was ultimately rejected but they made a few episodes out of it or something. I don't see why it has this animation quality otherwise. It's weird.

You mean from Kabuto during the War? Well, this filler happened before the war began, like a flashback...It's the time when Kabuto was collecting dead dudes for his Edo Tensei...



And what's up with Kabuto looking like the boy from Ano Hana/Ano Natsu ? Was this supposed to be a crossover ep? "Ano Naruto" ?

So I'm not the only one. I was confused about how the episode suddenly went all Grave of the Fireflies. I mean, I actually enjoyed it, but...this isn't Naruto at all. This filler might not be all filler-like as usual, but delivers more background information. Still, the timing to put in that arc is...meh.

Seriously, what the fuck is this?!?! They inserted this filler arc like it's fucking part of the main story.
Seriously, they are ruining the war arc's momentum by doing all these fucking fillers!!
And what's up with them?? They look like freaking kids!! Though, I kinda like this filler since the "hole" looks like a nice place to live in, and that little girl is just cute *^*

Nice episode, thought I think this arc was a bit uncalled for.
I mean, they are implying that Deidara and Itachi and etc had already been "revived" by Kabuto before the war began. I know, it makes sense that he is researching the Edo Tensei technique, but it just feels a bit... off.

I mean, the episode was beautiful, with those 2 kids and their sensei and dem feels, but it just felt strange.
Anyway, on to the next one

Oh, and this:

Not bad for filler, decent fight scenes, nice bringing back some memorable characters.

Anyone else notice the guy Sakura punches is the guy from the chunin exam arc. Hes the one who finds out that the hidden sand and kabuto are working together but is killed by the hidden sand guy who uses a wind blade.

Only real problem with this filler is that I cant seem to fit in the main storyline anywhere.
