  • Naruto spots a mysterious girl painting a picture of Konoha, and when she paints lightning striking the Hokage's mansion, it suddenly happens. The girl turns out to be Kurenai's old student with dangerous power and a need for revenge on Kurenai & Konoha.

    I liked it, and though it wasn't my absolute fave episode it was pretty interesting (I might not think so highly of it if Kurenai wasn't so awesome however! :D). The only thing that I didn't like was that they spent too much time with things that weren't completely relevant to the plot, like Naruto sloothing for around like 20 minutes. The paintings were also a bit on the disturbing side :( but I think it's nice that they had an episode about Kurenai, who doesn't frequently have a large roll in many episodes, and it's also cool how it tells a bit more about the past of one of the lesser characters.
