Well Kankuro was drawn like a block, he has a little more dimension than that. The transitions were executed very well in this chapter, then again this was also the most thoughtfully executed segment of the war to date in the manga. If the animation staff can keep it up at this level and cover the spots that Kishi dropped during the res of the war then this will be an excellent arc segment. Here's hoping.
Excellent episode, although I skipped the last 2 minutes of flashbacks. It was relatively short, and I loved those episodes back in the days, but I didn't feel like having my memory refreshed.
Looks like we're back to regular animation level next week again. They can't have top animation every week after all. So far so good, but the war is the longest arc by far. Let's see how long they can keep it up.
I have to say though, that this episode had fantastic usage of the OST. It made the war and skirmish sound very epic.
The episode was very cool. when it somes to actions unfortunately manga cannot describe it very well, but of course anime is better, ok lets wait for the next one and judjing from manga we will see a lot of actions from now battle after battle, jutsu after jutsu) 100K of Zetsus vs 80K of shinobis! Cool
