    It's the first part of a 4-part retrospective that'll cover Naruto's life and his rivalry with Sasuke. This is to commemorate the series' 10th anniversary.

    You can skip it if you're not interested in filler, but you might want to check it out just for the new opening and ending sequences.

    Check out the Rock Lee spin-off anime then

    Naruto and Sasuke fighting in the ending was nice.
    Opening didn't really contain any spoilers, didn't like the song..

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden Episode 257

    Maybe I'm in a good mood but this one didn't bother me at all. It was absolutely nothing that we didn't already know, but it went back to part one to establish the rivalry. Hiruzen really came off badly in this though... there really was no way around that small hole in the story so I'm surprised the animators would even bring it up. The ending was good though (outro).

    In the end, as long as the war isn't completely dominated by flashbacks and more useless filler, I have no problem with the episodes being complete filler for now. Not ideal, but better than the alternative (see after the Pain invasion arc).

    Opening: Crap. What is wrong with them?
    Ending: Very good. Me Gusta. The fighting animation was splendid.
    I didn't watch the actual episode though...
    A remake of the whole first series would be great though. Without fillers!

    Meh, that was by far the worst opening song of all Naruto Openings... Even the last one, while still beeing the most retarded one ever, had at least half decent music.

    Episode showed nothing new but was okay still. Damn that animation and art style was neat and it also reminded me of the fact that Sakura was once introduced as genjutsu user. Kishi never backed her up on that. I somewhat find that sad =/

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden Episode 257

    Basically a summary of Naruto and Sasuke's rivalry. It starts before ep1 then continue after this episode. The anime is currently showing each time Naruto was in competition with Sasuke (directly or indirectly). For nostalgics, even if the art and animation have been redone.

    The opening was shitty in every way. The ending was ok, the little melee between Naruto (Sage coat) and Sasuke was not especially amazing but still fine. Naruto assimilating Natural Energy and Sasuke triggering lighting chakra like a Super Sayan was...huh.

    The funny thing is that the ending is showing a parallel between Naruto/Sasuke and Sakura/Hinata.
    More and more hints everywhere about that.

    These fillers are unneccessary......opening song itself is horrible, but at least whats being shown during the song isn't completely retarded unlike the lasat one. The least they could do is play the good ol songs during shippuden itself....but no only during the crappy filler that no one wants to watch. What a troll.

    I really wonder why they aren't doing these quality animations each and every episode... It was amazing, how technique has developped. Looking at the old episodes after this one was... interesting.

    20 mins of absolute garbage. Crappy opening, pointless episode, and terrible ending.


    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.
