10+ (pure epicness)
5 or below
While i agree these epsidoes were awesome i wont say they were the best we have seen in Naruto. Well IMO anyway...I mean yes the animation was great, but we have seen better animation quality. Also while the fight scenes between Tobi and Minato were EPIC they lasted about 2 mins at most...Not enough to surpass other great Naruto episodes :S But definitely 10/10...I really teared up at the ending...Naruto anime may actually be watchable again...I havent been a fan of the anime since Hidan and Kakukuzu were killed. The standard dropped and fights i looked forward to from the manga were OK at best when animated so im kinda excited to see how great these last 4-5 episodes were...Hoping for the best
2 people are obviously trolling this poll.
It saddens me that I haven't had the time to comment before now, but everything has basically been said. LEGENDARY is probably one of the only words that can give justice to these two episodes. In my opinion this double episode was the best Naruto episode to date, and that says a lot when the fantastic Jiraiya vs Pain, Naruto vs Sasuke, Lee vs Gaara episodes to mention a few are counted for.
I want to say this in addition: Tobi sounded way more menacing in the anime than in the manga. The power of voice acting, it really is something. It really gave justice to his threat level.
To translate the events from the manga (i.e. minato jutsus, tobi coldness, emotional side) to anime and enhance all the elements to a superior degree than than the manga was priceless. Sometimes that just don't happen. You can't ask more from the producers or whoever created these two episode. Sometimes people base a little to much on the anime art work. I mean maybe 1% of the anime was off if that. For the most part the animemation was perfect because I garentee you cant pinpoint 3 bad spots of art work in the animation. Not to forget that all of Minato jutsus were perfectly projected in the anime to the highest degree.
The anime was top notch and hate to see that 2 people wasted pole space giving the two episodes 5 or below. To me it's the best Naruto anime today.
Out of curiosity, which technique Minato used after Tobi catched him with his chains? In the chapter I had the impression that Minato used Hiraishin -> Click
But in this episode it seems that he shunshin-jumped away.
I had that impression too, since he appear right next to his tag and there was no reason for him to go to it.
In the manga, the sound effects written seem to imply he used Hiraishin to escape Tobi's chains. This is not for certain, but it looks that was, as he used Shunshin to grab Naruto in mid air before Tobi could stab him (Very impressive feat).
I'm just curious to know:
Is there an episode coming out this week?
I just witnessed this two episodes and came here to say, that they were the best naruto episodes ever. Maybe even the best shonen episodes (you know, the prominent ones) out there. Just perfect. Action and emotion (maybe Kuinas heartbreaking speech to Naruto as she was dying was a little to long).
I'm glad everyone else thinks the same.
(voted 10 pure epicness. what else) EDIT: (or I would have done so, if I still could )

I very rarely tear up when watching anime, but episode 249 almost made me cry
you will not - never ever ever - find an episode like this cause Minato and kushina's death was the saddest moment in manga/anime history
