Finally, no fillers anymore. The episode was good, right to the point from manga. Though, artwork was ridiculous in some parts.
I thought animation was great, nothing awesome ofc but still.
I heard a couple or so new tracks.
Naruto rapping didn't even sound like he was doing anything more than talking (we know (s)he , can kinda sing, not Nr. 1 --- Nr. 2...)
Can't say that I like the ED though, I'm so tired of Naruto and Sasuke's love story by now...

Nice episode simply based on the fact that we're finally out of the seemingly endless stream of fillers! The art wasn't that great at times though :/ Remember the spoiler tags btw, danzouismadara^^
Based on the general pacing (2 chapters = roughly 1 episode) and the fact that the DVDs almost always have four episodes...
The current season should end around episode 249, bringing it to a total of seven DVDs, perhaps six if there are hour-long specials upcoming.
The new season should begin with episode 250, with the new opening probably coming in episode 253, on March 15th, or a couple weeks earlier if they broadcast hour-long specials.
(minor manga spoilers)
Of course, this is just an educated hypothesis, so take it with a grain of salt.

So we're finally back to canon are we? About time! Cool episode, especially the second half which had much better art and animation. The new ED was pretty cool animation and song-wise, but I am a little tired of seeing another Naruto/Sasuke ED...
I would have given this episode a 10/10 if the animations during the OP were different (like replacing some scenes because we're not in fillers anymore).
Other than that, everything about the episode was really great. Can't wait for next week.
Well..I think the kyuubi appeared during the opening. But I'm not sure.
Anyway, back to watching naruto again. Pretty good episode with some great comedy moments
I like the ending, but preferred the previous one better.
Looking forward to this arc in the anime.
I was expecting some good filler from Naruto vs Evil Naruto. It was the only reason I even watched this episode.
I would have been interested in more filler material in the Naruto vs Dark Naruto fight. I don't get why the animators don't take advantage of such material more often, it would be a perfect way to add "canon fillers". I wouldn't mind at all a little mirror fighting to drag out the story. Although we got a little, I wanted more. Apart from that the episode was perfect. I didn't like the new ending at all though, but that has nothing to do with the episode. The new soundtrack that played when Dark Naruto appeared was really good too, kind of creepy and evil, but neutral and "normal" at the same time, which is just what Dark Naruto is. I really liked Bee's hip hop theme too, although it was totally non-Naruto'ish.
