    Oh, no, no, no, no, no, NO!

    After last week's brilliant rally and the series' jump back into my good graces, this episode was a total let down. It's not that it was crap (although it was pretty waful)- it was just plain BORING! NOTHING HAPPENED! Chiyo finished off Sasori and he spent the rest of the episode dying, exchanging pointless philosophy with Sakura and having inaccurate flashbacks.

    I say inaccurate because, in one of the most embarrasingly bad gaffes Pierrot has EVER made, they screwed up their own original content. The scene of young Sasori seeing his parents off for a last time contradicts the scene in episode 23 where we saw them leaving for their fatal mission when Sasori was a baby. Well, at least I assume that's what was happening; it's certainly what they were implying in ep 23 since the scene of them leaving was immediately followed by the scene of Chiyo being told of their deaths. And apart from considerations of whether it was accurate or not, it was still a lousy waste of time. Ouch.

    And as has been mentioned, next episode is going to be even worse. While it's slightly possible that the fights between Team Gai and their clones will actually manage to make entertaining viewing, it's not likely and either way it's still an utterly worthless and irritating waste of time to divert us from the real action- Naruto and Kakashi vs Deidara.

    The bonus material at the end wasn't bad, though. But let's face it- watching a series for its bonus material is like going to a strip club to use their toilet.
    The Dream Wedding: My first one-shot Naruto fanfiction.
    Naruto: the Secret Songs of the Ninja: My epic "what if" story where Sasuke never survived the battle against Haku.

    Top ten reasons why NaruHina will become canon:
    7. Naruto saw Hinata dancing naked in a waterfall, and he totally digs that.
    10. Hinata has giant boobies.

    I just skipped to the last part where Kakashi was about to use his MS. Pretty pointless episode if you've read the manga.

    Actually, the contradiction you mentioned is not caused by this ep, but last ep. In the manga they never showed Sasori bidding his parents goodbye; they only showed the scene where Sasori was getting hugged by his parents.

    I don't see a contradiction...

    Function: noun
    1 : act or an instance of contradicting
    2 a : a proposition, statement, or phrase that asserts or implies both the truth and falsity of something b : a statement or phrase whose parts contradict each other <a round square is a contradiction in terms>
    3 a : logical incongruity b : a situation in which inherent factors, actions, or propositions are inconsistent or contrary to one another
    I see.. is
    filler
    Function: noun
    : one that fills : as a : a substance added to a product (as to increase bulk, weight, viscosity, opacity, or strength) b : a composition used to fill the pores and grain especially of a wood surface before painting or varnishing c : a piece used to cover or fill in a space between two parts of a structure d : tobacco used to form the core of a cigar e : material used to fill extra space in a column or page of a newspaper or magazine or to increase the size of a work (as a book) f : a pack of paper for a loose-leaf notebook g : a sound, word, or phrase (as "you know?") used to fill pauses in speaking
    ^^

    Sasori's flashbacks weren't shown like that, we had some but not all that.

    But they weren't off track, don't you think Sasori didn't bid farewell to them? He didn't born a mass murderer.
    There is alot on the "underlines" of the manga.. that isn't draw or write. But the animators read thoses line, and animate them (of course also they also show them to dilute the raw content of the manga)

    Now unless everyone wants something like this as the Naruto "Anime"

    Nooo, how can they do that? At least I was expecting to see Kakashi's MS in action, while we have seen it only for a sec before the end of the episode. Really, I am waiting to see it from three episodes. Kakashi began to charge it something like two/three weeks ago, and we haven't even seen his effects. Really, from the trailer at the end of the last episode it seems that in the next we'll not see Kakashi and Naruto, but only team Gai (a part that there wasn't in the manga, and that in my opinion is lower and more useless than a regular filler). Really, if they won't show it in the next episode they will completely ruin a lot of expectation. The last pat of the arc was pretty cool in the manga, so they'll have a chance to return to the former quality, the only thing that they must do is leave things as they are and don't slow down anything.
