PLEASE WATCH THE EPISODE BEFORE READING THE REVIEW!!!
Okay, I gotta be honest I skipped through parts of this one a bit cause it was getting boring.
It started out like the manga at first so i was happy to see things moving along in that direction and then they did more pointless story that didn’t take place in the manga.
I was surprised that Naruto didn’t sense that Utakata was a Jinchuriki before. I thought that they could sense that kind of stuff, but then again, he didn’t sense it in Gaara before, but that was a long time ago and Naruto has had more training since then.
The filler part was boring except for seeing Utakata go six tails and hold his own against Pein. That part I liked. They sprinkled in just enough story so that if you skip this episode you miss some key events. It all wraps up with each of the Jinchuriki pulling out one tail.
In the next episode it looks like we will be getting to the heart of the fight between fake Madara and Naruto as the Biju come out to play. Itachi and Kisame look to show up in a flash back and Gai sensei is there, which leads me to believe either flash back or they’re going through the story very quickly. Keep your fingers crossed for no filler next week.
I’ll give this episode 3 out of 5
If not for actually seeing the fight between the 6 tails and Pein it would have been 2, but there was just enough story in this episode and the battle was interesting enough to keep me watching. Here’s hoping they do better next week.
