  • 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.
