Ep 284 stream
I am beyond happy that the rookies are getting PT. I thought this was a good episode and kinda explained why Danzo thought so highly of Sai(though its non canon). Lee was his usual cool self and the animation was great despite it being filler. I do hope they continue to these battles every now and then.
This was an excellent episode. The anime staff is on a tear. Filling in the voids that the manga left. Great characterization of Sai who was dealing with his own inner demons and the effects of war. Really well-scripted. Epsiodes like this could really elevate the war arc in people eyes. Next week is more filler. Let's see if they can go 4/4.
I gotta say a filler really really impressed me for like the 3rd or 4th time in all of naruto. Im very happy with this episode and if fillers stay at this quality I will be able to swallow them alot easier. Made me feel like I was watching cannon. This should of been in the manga
Great episode. This is how filler should be done. Solid animation, good fightscenes, minimal use of flashbacks, and solid writing that increases character development.
My only real complaint is how quickly Kakashi took down Jinin Akebino. It would be nice if these battles could be expanded a bit more, maybe two or three episodes per opponent. I'd like to see more of their fighting style and some named attacks.
