At least, if 164 is really crappy, 165 with a Sage Naruto cloack is done by a decent team.
edit : the problem is that the good moment when Naruto will use Taijutsu against Pain will be done in episode 164
Seems there will be a looot of filler in 164. I hope that episode 167 last to the end of the fight but I don't think so.

I say it right now...
167 is going to be EPIC.
The 6-tailed and the 8-tailed Kyubbi were already epic in the manga, I can't wait to see them animated, and if they are done by a great animator, I say, it was worth the wait!
I think that episode 166 will end with pain activating chibaku tensei. 167 will probably begin with the kyuubi being trapped and minato showing and and we'll see the conversation as well. It'll end with naruto standing on top of the chibaku tensei rubble.
168 will probably be the final episode where the battle ends.
I could be wrong to, and that the summaries are dead on. That would probably mean that the battle will end in episode 169.

What makes me the most sad here is that I would trade all the other episodes if 164 would be good. This is the heat of the battle/ narutos smarts. I really really hope the good animators do some tijutsu filler other wise i feel like it would be a waste

Thanks for the infos, guys.
I had to lol at this "Or will the most unexpected of allies appear to calm Naruto down?"
The answer is No! Nobody will appear. Nobody knows why the summarizer wrote that...
The only thing I'm concerned about at the moment is the fate of 168. Since that episode will probably be the end of the fight, it deserves to have good animation as well. But if Pierrot sticks to the rotation, it'll suck hard so c'mon!! We need one more good director for this arc to end with a bang!!!
I think the production for the movie is done now but there's no way Masahiko could have somehow directed an episode in the past six-eight months while he worked on the movie.
Hiroki Tanaka is also very unlikely since he's been working on FMA:Brotherhood for the past couple of months.
Hiroaki Imaki....works on Bleach now >.>
so yeah, the only probable choice is Gorou
No matter how good the upcoming episodes are, i still won't get over the way the last episode was produced. Major let down which could potentially eclipse the whole as being the major down point.
I'd be satisfied if gorou does it tho. If he does it it'll probably be awesome. But It still won't compare to 166 and 167. I think it's good that they used good animators for these episodes. But they just started using them to late. The good animators should've been used from 163/164 onwards. Now we won't see naruto with his epic cloak showing pain who's god in konoha with good animation. We'll only see the kyuubi in action really, and maybe after that, sage mode naruto will get some epic animation, but the cloak will be gone.

I'll never be able to forgive them for what they did to 163/164. Ever.
