  • Plan: Return the Favor Continues

    I could not watch the episode prior, but this episode sums up anything missed last episode, grateful for that. I liked the fights here as the one looked like an Anti-Gaara, he had blue hair, green eyes and a voice similar and looks similar just opposite hair style. We get to see the Sand Shinobi being backed up by the Leaf. Temari and Shikamaru use their smarts to fight the girl. Kankuro, Chouji and Kiba combine efforts on their enemy. Gaara tries for the other, but his plan backfired by using a water-style jutsu was pretty good idea. Sand is heavy when soaked, it is harder for Gaara to control when he does not have much chakra left.

    The Role Reversal may have been a quick thought, but, it is fitting to do this because this is the last Arc before the end. So we might as well use this idea to end things as they were when the Manga ended: after a retrieval mission. Sand backed up Leaf, Leaf backs up Sand, completing the relationship between them.

    Now it is down to the Big Bad of the Arc, lets go!
  • My reviews are always short lol. Anyways... Yayness xD

    L M A O ! Like in the beginning of the episode with Temari, Ino, and Shikamaru . . . Shikamaru and Temari was talking and Ino was thinking . She was like ' i kinda feel like i don't belong here . ' I have to say, that was funny but I don't entirely hate Ino. And yayness ! More Shikamaru x Temari xP . So . . . umm . . Kiba saves Kankuro, Shikamaru and Ino saves Temari. And Naruto and Lee saves Gaara . And Omgshh ! I think this is the episode where Temari was like.
    "We're up one." And she smiles (Kind of laughing.) lol

    If it wasn't this episode then it was the next one.

  • the worst filler episode that has ever been shown on the naruto series.

    this has to be the worst naruto episode that i have ever watched the animation was pethetic the fight sequances were as bad as it gets there was no reason to watch this epiode unless you are afan of garra other wise dont watch this episode. the animation on this episode was ugly the animation on garra was ugly. they made naruto look so weak and lee they couldent even land a pounch on there aponent, over all this was the worst filler i have ever watched.
  • pretty bad, it seemed to be a "get it over" episode. they rushed the fight too much, one second they were losing when 30 secs away they killed their foe. just awful, they were played to be so smart but the foe was stupid in the end.

    Everyone found the people they were going to help. At first Chouji, Kiba, and Kankuro had problems about about being in sync. They defeated their opponent by Akamaru just walking up behind their foe, fixed the puppet, and it killed him. (that fight seemed rush) In Shikamaru's fight Ino could the snot beat out of her and Shikamaru acted like he didn't care. Shikamaru used his shadow to catch her then Temeri killed her. For Gaara's fight they wet his sand and made it so he can't control it, but he turned his sand into a pointed stick and stabbed and killed their foe. Gaara was standing ten feet away then merely throw it through the heart, without the enemy even moving to dodge. Also lee got the snot beat out of him in three seconds. Now they are all converging on the enemy who has Matsuri. (exept Ino and Lee)
