    Why are you asking about next episode? :|

    Crappy art to be honest. And lol @ Rin being alive when Kakashi looks like a teenager... Manga readers will know.

    But I really liked the combination between Kakashi and Gai.

    I really liked this one. I have to say, I like the way the fillers are being done. The teammwork between Kakashi and Gai was pretty cool as well as the after-math of the bridge battle with Obito.

    Either way, good episode IMO.

    . And I like that these fillers are more than just flashbacks or rehash's, and evne a little creative with characters they can afford to be creative with (vs. the post-Pain invasion fillers).

    Oh, and I also like that Omoi's been getting a little more screen-time too. In the manga he was pretty good in the early parts of the war so I hope he keeps proving to be a formidable opponent and useful ally.

    I'd always assumed so. The -yuri in Ameyuri is a girls' name suffix, the same way -maru is used for boys.

    Thought the episode was solid. I couldn't get used to Kakashi and Guys teenager voices. Too girly for my taste to fit them both. Also Rin beeing there was... well no mangaspoilers. Other than that I liked the episode.

    That's the only part I watch of these episodes. (I know you guys are saying these fillers are good, but I just don't have any interest in them at all)

    OK, thanks, I don't know much of Japanese linguistics.
    I never really thought about it, being part of the 'Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist' and all.
    She just looks like a man, even with the hair. Hell what do I know, Haku was a dude wasn't he.

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden 288

    Eh, "swordsman" is just the English translation. Japanese term is Kiri no Shinobigatana Shichinin Shū, which would literally be something along the lines of "Mist's Shinobi Sword Seven-Person Squad."

    Anyway, my review of the episode, in short: excellent filler. Kushimaru and Jinpachi are badasses. The animation is good, the combat is good, the swordsmen have cool fighting styles. I especially like the way Kushimaru was handled, as he was easily the coolest looking of the bunch, IMO. Jinpachi's pretty cool, too.

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden 288

    Its interesting on watching the streams and the negative comments about the fillers. Last Years ones were bad it was just when naruto is a kid and fights a villain that looks so plain like some random person to fill in the background in the village lol.
    But these fillers have been great because didn't kushi off screen the 7 mist shinobi being sealed? We only got to see the zaibustu fight, so I feel as if these are kinda cannon.
    Good episode this was, liked the young Gai lol.

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden 288

    is this one filler or regular?
    Why Tobi can't be Obito (or Rin):

    Year 0 for our purposes:
    We know that Madara and Tobi knew each other (confirmed by Kishi) and gave Madara's Rinnegan to Nagato.
    Year 5:
    J-Man trains Nagato
    Year 10:
    Obito is born.Tobi might be using Obito's eye but that is improbable since it would most likely be MS technique BUT considering how much he's been using it he would be blind by now. Itachi used it very sporadically and was blind, same Sasuke-Tobi is spamming it for 17 years and is OK?

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden 288

    Would have liked some backstory for jinpachi and kushimaru but this proved a more enjoyable episode than pakura because there was an even battle and we got more depth for gai and kakashi's bond.

    Reading is a good habit.

    I'd have liked this episode (and the one about Jinin) to have explored the backstory of the Seven Swordsmen rather than the good guys, but at least we're actually getting a chance to see them in action in the anime. Since Suigetsu and Chojuro are still lurking around, Kishimoto might still have some Seven Swordsmen background of his own to reveal, I suppose. If not, we'll eventually get a final databook with character profiles for all seven, I assume.
