  • Here we go, a massive story arc to a past we already know about...

    Definitely not my favorite episode, this episode really got nowhere fast. First it spent an unusual amount of time going through all of the Konoha ninjas that took part in the rescue, Chouji, Neji, Kiba, Shikmaru, and Rock Lee. Then it actually got somewhere for a little while with Naruto trying to pound some sense into Sasuke which followed with a lot of flashbacks to the previous time Sasuke and Naruto fought on top of the hospital. Finally it ends with Sasuke kicking Naruto's ass. There were some interesting points here and there, such as Sasuke outmaneuvering Naruto with some really great battle tactics, but way too many flashbacks. Cut down on all of the unnecessary stuff and this episode is probably seven minutes long.
