When Anko has a flashback in the beginning of the episode, she's over a sink with dishes in it. She drops the first dish she picked up from the sink. After she leaves the room with the broken dish in her hand, they show the sink again, but it's empty.
Isaribi: (Takes bandages off) Look at me. People in this world would judge others solely on their appearance. They stay away when they see me covered in bandages, imagine what they would do if they saw a monster covered in scales! I just want my body back, okay! I just want to be human, I'll do whatever it takes to be myself again.
Naruto: But you still are human, it doesn't matter what you look like.
Anko: What the...?
Amachi: Welcome, or should I say long time no see.
Anko: What's going on here? Amachi?
Amachi: I have to admit, I'm a little surprised that you'd return after all that happened back then.
Naruto: Get ready pal! I'm gonna put your lights out!
Shino: Naruto, wait!
Naruto: Why? What is it?
Shino: You go on ahead. I think I'm better suited for this.
Shino: His jutsu will be a problem for your style of close combat. Besides, we all can't stick around here.
Naruto: All right, wipe the floor with him!
Ino: Be careful.
Amachi: Well one of their ships is on the move... Perfect timing. Well done. Sending you back to Mother Island really paid off then. What's the matter? You look a little pale today.
Isaribi: Do you think I'll ever be...be normal again? I've gathered information on the ships docked back at the village just like you told me to. I've pillaged them for you, so...
Amachi: I can't believe this. You're not serious are you? You're my magnum opus child, you're the prototype for this project. You know what the deal is. The day of your generating is invaluable. Besides, your total cooperation was one of the conditions of our agreement.
Anko: The Hidden Leaf Village wasn't the only place he had a research facility set up.
Shino: And one of those is hidden on Demon Island, I take it.
Ino: So, the people who disappeared...
Shino: Human guinea pigs.
Naruto: That psychotic lunatic! What the heck does he think people are?!
Naruto: It used to be a human? What are you talking about?
Anko: A good number of people did mysteriously vanish in the Land of the Sea ten years ago, but it wasn't because of any demon. They were being snatched up and used as test subjects in experiments conducted by Orochimaru.
Shino: The ship carrying the payment sets sail in the morning. We should get back to the inn.
Naruto: Wait a minute, Shino. What's going to happen to Isaribi?
Ino: Who cares what happens to her? She's the Demon of the Ocean.
Naruto: Yeah I know, but...
Ino: What exactly went on between the two of you anyway?
Naruto: What do you mean? I told you before, didn't I? That girl totally saved my butt.
Naruto: Why are you protecting this moron? He's the one that did this to you.
Isaribi: I don't know, but...but I don't have a choice now. He's the only person that can turn my body back to normal again! He promised he would!
Ino: So, sensei, how exactly do you know so much about this Demon Island anyway?
Anko: Orochimaru was the Jonin I trained under back in the day.
Ino and Shino: Huh!!!
Anko: This isn't some sea creature we're dealing with. Our demon was made in a lab, it used to be human.
Misumi: This isn't fair!
Naruto: What are you whining about? We're shinobi, pal, everything's fair game.
Ino: And you call yourself a ninja?
Misumi: Shut up!
Naruto: It's not a face that makes someone a monster, it's the choices they make with their life.
Anko: Well, isn't this adorable? You kitties wanna play?
Misumi: (To Amachi) You really are cruel, you know that?
Shino: We should return to the inn.
Naruto: But what will happen to Isaribi?
Ino: As if I know! She's the Kaima after all!
Ino: Naruto, just what happened between the two of you?
Anko: My, my, what precious kitties.

We learn that the Kaima is a human transmuation experiment done by Orochimaru and Amachi.
Kabuto's teammates from the Chuunin Exam make a reappearance. This time they are not wearing masks, so we can see what they really look like.
Unmasked, Yoroi Akado bears a striking resemblance to Batou from the Ghost in the Shell series.
Anko: My, my, what precious kitties.
The creatures Anko fights look a lot like the Chimera seen in the first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist.
Anko: The Kaima's not a monster, but a human transmutation.
The talk of human transmutation is a reference to the subject of alchemy. This may be a possible reference to the popular anime Fullmetal Alchemist, where human transmutation is talked about a lot, though in a different way.
