    I usually hate comments about 'animating'. Have to say myself though that 248 and 249 were excellently done with a seemingly higher level of detail and the manga book like animation of the kyuubi attack was a very nice touch.

    Not a lot of filler, pure story. Definitely one I plan to own when it's released - I can give no higher praise of it than that. I loved how they showed Sarutobi as confident, even if he wasn't current hokage.

    In my opinion, these two episodes are the best episodes in the whole Naruto series hands down.

    Awesome episode!

    To confirm, is the reason that Minato sacrificed himself because that was the only way to make Naruto the next Jinchuuriki and he believed that Naruto would need this power in the future?

    What I never fully understood, even from the manga, was if he sacrificed himself just to give Kushina a few minutes to spend with grown up Naruto. If that's the case, that just seems so idiotic to me. Either have your son raised, protected, and taught by his dad for his whole life, or have your son grow up an orphan, hated for much of his life, but allow him to spend a few minutes with mom when he is older. The choice seems really clear for me if this is the case.

    The reason minato sealed the kyuubi inside of naruto was for a couple of reasons.

    1. He believed that naruto would need the kyuubi's power in the future to defeat madara. Without that power it might not be possible.
    2. If kushina seals the kyuubi inside herself and dies, the kyuubi will reappear in the future. It's unknown when and where, but there would be no host to seal it in. Not to mention if someone like madara comes across it again, it spells trouble.
    3. If the kyuubi is not with konoha, the power balance will be gone since all the other village will have their tailed beasts. If they'd attack konoha, the kyuubi wouldn't be there to fight against their tailed beast. It's like in the real world... nuclear weapons blablabla.

    Also, like I said before, minato sacrificing himself wasn't just so that he and kushina could spend time with naruto in the future, but so that they could assist him later on when he would try to harness the power of the kyuubi. Take that into consideration with all the 3 points above and you will see that he made a somewhat logical choice.
    Let my wife die, and risk all 3 points above, or die as well, and assist our son in the future while avoiding the dangers in the 3 points above.

    Does your choice still seem clear to you?

    Regarding the episode. Perfect, absolutely perfect. The action and drama were done amazingly well.

    It's really rare that I think and say this, but I feel that the anime was a lot better than the manga. Artwork and portrayal were MUCH better than in the manga. So a thank you and props to the director and the animation team. It's rare to see someone best the manga with his animation.

    Amazing episodes. Everything is perfect. Music is fitting. After Kakashi Gaiden, these episodes really match upto Manga or rather I would say they are better than Manga.
    It really makes you cry in the end.
    It would have been so good if we have such animation in all the episodes. I guess I will re watch these episodes

    Minato is great. Tobi never had upper hand and if he stayed, Minato would have defeated him for sure.

    Funny how the anime got touched by the Minato effect... Whenever he appears, the animation is always top notch and the music always good.
