This arc was actually pretty ok. It had just about the right amount of humour, fight scenes, and emotions. I didn't feel like throwing my tv remote at the tv this time.
If more fillers were like this no would complain as much. I wish naruto where a better fighter in the filler episodes though. He seems to get beaten up by everyone that he meets. He can't really be that weak and when is he gonna learn some new moves. The last move he learned was rasengan and that was a pretty long time ago and can barely even remember the episode.
