I just found it sooo hilarious when Sakura asked Naruto if he found Sai to be somewhat similar to Sasuke. Naruto obviously wants to praise Sasuke but quickly realized who he was talking to and toned the praise down a bit, although its so obvious that Sakura would need to be as dense as Naruto to not figure it out.
Kinda boring episode with some funnily drawn scenes and odd colors, especially Sakura’s hair (neon pink?) when she was in Tsunade’s office. The story will probably pick up again in the next 2 episodes (or one.. since it’s a 1-hour special) as Team Kakashi approaches the Heaven and Earth Bridge.
But then I guess that’s the downside of having read the manga, there really isn’t much surprise or anticipation unless you’ve forgotten about it. However, there are also some parts which looks better on animation rather than static drawings and there are a few scenes I can’t wait to watch. Hopefully there won’t be much delaying or dragging.
“Mah sexy scar!”
It happened that I watched this episode after reading the latest chapter of Naruto’s manga, and it makes me kinda sad thinking about whats going to happen to one of the most powerful shinobi in the series. If you’re an anime only person for Naruto, then you probably won’t know what I mean for a long, long time.
Next episode… Yamato’s special technique – uber scary eyes!
