  • The 3 sand sibs are finally catching up to Matsuri's kidnappers and split up to fight them individually, while Konoha's team continues to track them.

    Agh, fillers...I realize that they want Konoha to "repay the favor" to the Sand Village, but could they have atleast been a little more original? The creators probably spent about two minutes planning this episode, which can be summed up in saying "well, let's just do the exact same thing again, except reversed." Admittedly, the episode could have been a lot worse, but it is seriously lacking in the creativity department. Even the enemies that the sand-sibs fight one on one are comepletely not creative. Temari gets paired with a shinobi who can cut wind and Kankurou gets paired with a shinobi who uses his sword like a puppet. I'll bet they spent a lot of time planning that out(sarcasm). Overall, if you really like the Sand shinobi you'll probably enjoy it, or atleast be interested enough to sit through it. Otherwise, you'll probably be unable to shake the eerie sense of deja-vu emanating from this episode.
  • Yayness

    Well this is another good episode. And oh my god! Shikamaru was having like... a fantasy(?) of Temari!!! Woot ! xD xD . Yayness ! Shikamaru saves Temari xD. Lol. Episode 216 - 220 has many hints of Shikamaru x Temari xD. Exactly why I like the arc. I've watched this episode many times and I keep on watching the parts with Temari and Shikamaru for some freaking reason. Lol. It's too addicting. I never get tired of this episode. xD. And once again... I'm writing reviews to increase my level. Not my first account but yeah.
  • Awesome Episode xD

    Love this episode. Just like episode 125 except its reversed . This episode has another Shikamaru and Temari moment which is why i love the episode xD . This episode is probably my favorite episode . But , I'm waiting for episode 218 to see which is my favorite xP . I dont know when 218 is coming out on youtube though ! And I'm tired of waiting for it every single day . Anyways, This episode is pretty well written so i'm giving it a 9.9 . Well, I think that episode 218 is gonna be my favorite episode . xD .

  • Normally I wouldn't write a review about a filler, but this was actually pretty good.

    This is actually a filler that actually kept me interested. So that in itself makes this episode really good. It had the usual Naruto antics in it and some good action. There were a couple of funny parts in this episode as well.

    Another part of this episode that was really good was when everyone is trying to catch up to Gaara. It reminded me of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc so that made me pretty happy.

    So, overall, this was a good filler episode and I can't wait for the next one. I just wish that Feb. 15th would get here sooner.

  • Great episode! can't wait to see lee

    The evil un-named ninjas r still on the run with matsuri. Finally the konohas shinobi has showed up. Temeri, kankuro, and gaara were seperated fighting their on indivitual fights. Each having a hard time. Shika and ino are there to save temeri. Kankuro is laso getting the snot beat out of him same as for his puppets. Chouji, Kiba, and akamaru has showed up to help him out. It has not shown but naruto and lee are on the way to help out gaara. These are going to be some awesome fights. Finally can pay back the favor to gaara. I have a feeling this is going to be one of the best filler episode ever.
  • This time it is the Konoha shinobi that come to save those from Sunagakure (Hidden Sand). Have the Sand shinobi met their matches? Kiba, Chouji, Shikamaru, Ino, Naruto, Hinata, Neji, Lee and Shino all go out to return the favour!

    The beginning of the episode starts off well where we see the Sand ninja facing off with the Shi-tenshoushin ninja. However, the Sand ninja seem to have met their matches.

    In my opinion, I think this episode is drawn out a little much, so not much action happens in the 22 mins. of playtime. We however get to see the Konoha ninja jumping into Kankuro's and Temari's battle. We don't see yet what happens with Gaara's battle. Also, out of Shino, Hinata, Kiba, Neji, Lee, Shikamaru, Naruto, Ino and Chouji, we only see Shikamaru, Chouji, Kiba, and Ino jumping in. The rest are on their way.

    This episode is a good suspense builder and I can't wait to see the next. However, it is just a bit drawn out.
