Pretty weird episode.

I didn't care for the first half. But the fight between Ohnoki and Kabuto looks like it's going to be well designed art wise.

The first half was pure crap.
But they got me on the second one. EdoTensei Zombies are going to look good.
The janken with the crab was hilarious though... XD

What the heck with that ninja ostrich? That had to be from a previous filler episode, which I do not watch. But the second half was really good

The Ostrich is from a few older fillers. The first half wasn't so great and goofy, clearly to waste time. But I prefer that to mis-placed or over-used flashbacks. Kind of interesting how they did the ET bodies. They do look different from the way Hashirama/Tobirama were re-animted.

Lol, the ostrich is back.
The episode with the ostrich is the only filler I liked during the whole 1-year full of filler we had a while back.

Although, I really didn't like the filler part of this one...

Oh no the ostrich is back ;( Sigh...Ep was disappointing...Hope they dont mess up the war :|

Decent episode overall.

I'm not a fan of the ostrich but this filler idea is not that bad considering the place.
The canon part was much better of course.

Art and animation were good, if not very good.

From this episode its clear that Kabuto can have Zetsu instead of Yamato for the purpose of his experiments involving Hashirama. This means that Zetsu is a creation or something tied to Hashirama. Tobi being made of Zetsu like material is also a product of Hashirama and maybe made by Madara once he got Hashirama's powers. Add that to the fact that Tobi knows alot about Madara's history and it would be reasonably true that he is made by Madara and is pale shadow of him

The first part was a huge WTF-moment.

The second part was much better. And the next episode looks promising aswell.

The Last few minutes were good but over the Episode was very Meh for me...

On a side not is anybody getting tired of the opening?

IMO, they probably came up with the filler stuff with Condor and the other boss animals in order to avoid the manga subplot where Naruto has to figure out the genders of all the animals by checking their genitals. Probably a bit too obscene for the anime.

The second half of the episode was really good, and I especially liked the first part of the battle between Kabuto and O'onoki. The scenery was beautiful and I really liked how the scene zoomed and panned with the clouds moving to convey the motion.
