Konan was so hot in this episode!
Tobi reflecting the last paper shurikens was kinda funny

I liked this episode, the animation wasn't great, but some of those art drawings were good.
I really like the new music track they've got, the one at 13:50 in this episode, (the one during the calm Konoha scene in Kushina's flashback)
Tobi looks good.
Deidara looks... well.. stupid in the preview

Too many flashbacks for my liking but overall the action in the beginning was good.
LOL Paper Shuriken to the head FTW!!! The filler fights were nice and it mad Konan look even more like a boss. The links i used for some reason didn't sub the dialogue that was happening every time it zoomed in on the "flip cards". It just said "Nagato. Yahiko. Konan." and the rest of the subs were just skipped over during that time period, idk why. My only problem with the episode is that in the manga this was one of the saddest moments in all of naruto for me but the anime just didn't convey it well for me. Idk if it was because i knew what was gonna happen, the music wasn't right, or they just took too long to bring home the final message because of the filler. Still good episode but not great.
The action in this episode (and the last) was kind of *meh* but overall, this one made me feel feelings. The hideout part were sad, but they didn't make me tear up a bit like the manga.

They made Konan so badass. I liked the added fighting the animation team added to her main fight.
Anyone notice that Tobi's skin color doesn't match Madara's in the Madara flashback... but kind of matches Hashirama's. Not saying Tobi is Hashirama because that's impossible with the whole death god and edo tensei thing but... just an observation.
Fantastic Episode. The filler paper fight was meh and the rainbow scene could have been done a lot better because it really stood out in the manga but the flashbacks were done beautifully. Brought great closure to the rain trio that was much better than the manga.

liked the episode the filler fight was not bad. but i liked the rain ninjas flashback. always found this chapters sad in the manga especially when the paper cover her tablet in the house when she dies to be similar to her teammates and jiriaya.
This is one of the sadder episodes... it's sad what happened to them... and Jiraiya. Although what Tobi said at the end to Konan has always stood out to me as brutal. He is a brutal Villain. The last words she heard and her last moment, is him telling her he will destroy what they stood for, although it came across more brutal in the anime. To me, she died the saddest of the three.
The episode was great.
It got the best from the manga and made it even better with good filler parts.
And Tobi was as badass as always.
But the end with Tobi 2.0 posing was bit fast, and I don't know why the anime director chose to show us that Tobi used his left Sharingan when he was falling whereas, in the manga, it has been offpanel. It spoils the "surprise".
