Good stuff. A lot of flashback again (including flashback to the SAME episode), but it wasn't as obnoxious this time around. Plus, it looks like we're gonna get a follow-up to the start of the show soon.

I like the OP. Not sure about the ep. It was okay, I suppose.

Well i personally loved the episode... It was a lot better than the recent ones and had also a feeling of the old classic naruto...What regards the opening and ending songs....They sucked!!!

Hmmm the new opening is pretty nice, and the ending is great :D
Gotta love Sai XD

The episode however should be charged for severe abuse of flashbacks, including ones of things that happened three minutes before hand.
It also should have gotten everything to do with the sand over and done with in my opinion.

new OP grows on you and the Ending song is cute. im guessing that guy is comic relief in this oh so serious quest to find sasuke where tons of people are going to die. eh just my guess never read the manga.

Good episode! So sad that chiyo-sama died ='[
It was so sweet how they all prayed for her =]
xD I wonder if that was all of the Sand Village's shinobi that gathered, because I'm wondering who's watching the village.

Not a typo. Only need "an" preceding a vowel sound, not a vowel letter. That's why it's a yoo-nique (unique) but an on-er (honor).

Agreed on it being a thoroughly decent episode.

The opening and ending views to the theme songs gave away that there will be new characters coming to Kohona. I recognize that face from the preview in the first ep of Naruto Shppuden when they went to go find saskue. This was a good ep, but now they need to go back to Kohona and stop worrying about the Sand. The part when Naruto and Saskue draws weapons to each others necks doesnt fit the theme song of you are my friend.
ANIME RKZ!!!!

Towards the end of this episode, when they were all praying for Chiyo, they were playing this AMAZING piece of music. It totally grabbed my attention and set the mood very well.

But really, 3 weeks for this? I'm going to stand by what I said last episode that they could have fit all of this in the hour special last time. Too many flashbacks, typical surprised reactions, etc.

I'm happy for Gaara and all, but he was soooo much cooler when he was a badass.

the ep. was ok, still slow and tons of flashbacks, and a 3 week period definetly sucks
I think this is the slowest anime on history now. I wouldnt mind, AT ALLl, seeing fillers if the series speed up =O!
I didnt like the op, definetly didnt like the song. the ed was funny, cant wait to see Sai (although I hope they show more gaara next ep.)

They had us waiting 3 weeks for this!? You must be shittin' me! The flash backs were over long as usual. Then I personally think, they should have held back doing the new OP and ED. At lest 'till Sai was actually featured in the episode. I spent a bit of time rewinding, because I got distracted by what will happen; then by the shows' obvious flow toward the ending. At one point I thought it got a little too silly; the part with the girls mooning all over Gaara. That was a needless bit of fluff, considering someone important had just died. That's just me - maybe I'm over analyzing things, it wouldn't be the 1st time. The only parts I truly enjoyed was the music, and the ending when every one prayed. Oh, and the realization that Naruto doesn't cry as much - he just grunts in a very manly way.

I saw that too. Weard... It seems that Sasuke creates a team called "snake" and has found member's for it. I guess we will be finding out about them when naruto's squad go find sasuke.

Don't like the new opening (too much Engrish).
Really liked the new ending.

I thought the episode was great. It's amazing how they can take a minor character like Chiyo, and make her so important that her death is so heart-wrenching.

I think they finally put some more effort in the art and animation of this episode. It looked much better, with cleaner lines and colors and better animation overall. I also liked the emotional factor of it. I think best episode of Shippudden up until now.. :)
5/5

Yeah, this and that puppet battle royal episode were the best episode so far. Still not particularly great, though.

Wow that was sad, poor Granny Chiyo. This is definitely the best arc Shippuuden after re-watching the anime I have to say I've enjoyed this one the most.

ppl, I found this episode was amazing, realy!!
wish the old lady wouldn't have had to die though...
anyway, the ending animation with the guy from the 1. episode sucked. well, I find they should not spoiler so much, cause what comes in the next episodes, should realy stay there...
anyway, well done, even a bit touching the prayer scene...

Great episode with Gaara! So sad at the end with Chiyo-baa-sama T^T Unnessary fluff with the girls fangirling over Gaara. And all that feels and emotions were completely destroyed by a very happy ending....I think they should have held it off for a bit longer, at least until they showed Sai

Just like the majority of Naruto's OPs, this one is gonna take some getting used to. This was a really good episode though.

I forgot about this episode, it really was a heavy hitter seeing Granny Chiyo pass the torch to Naruto and Gaara. Comparing her to the Third Hokage was very fitting, I couldn't help but close my eyes and offer prayers for her as well. I was also thinking about how Kankuro treated Naruto when they first met vs now and it goes to show just how much of an impact he's had on everyone around him.
