Not a bad filler episode, it helps clear up some stuff from the Wave arc. Though didn't we see Zouri again not too long ago in a Sasuke filler? Guess he was released on good behavior. Next episode looks like straight up filler, with no ties to anything related to the manga.

Giving this one a 9 for its Awesome Animation.

New Intro is so and so, but it beats the last one.

A filler with a side of cannon. somehow I'm liking this whole mix for the past few episodes.

HA. Sasuke, talk to my rear end.

Sexy Jutsu are always a plus.

and the coupon was destroyed in the end. who saw that coming.

New ending looks Awesome. So much color and animation. Lee! TenTen with the stick! (which I never seen her used) Neji! (looks like he gain a few pounds) and Konohamaru. music was ok.

My eyes were bleeding looking at the awesome animation wrapped in filler crap. I mean, if they are planning to keep it going, I don't mind if Goro and others go on doing their job on Naruto, but I have a strong feeling the feast will end right when the cannon stuff begins.-_-

Does anyone remember how close the anime was to the manga when they went on that 2-year filler extravaganza? I know the pattern has been 1 manga season, 1 filler season, 1 manga season, etc.. but I have this horrible feeling that a 60 chapter (~30 epsidoes) margin is near the critical point. Or maybe not...


Anyway, I mildly enjoyed the episode, but did love the animation. Why don't they put this much effort into the main story?

A good episode I thought. Really love the new opening and ending.

Liked the part where Naruto lost the coupon and started sobbing with Inari.

Overall I give this episode a 9/10

Episode 400 whoopee. Hate the new opening, it's the least eventful opening ever which seems to tell us to strap ourselves in a for a whole lot of filler. I've giving my opinion on the whole 2 minutes of canon and 18 minutes of filler before, so not much else to say. If you hadn't read the manga you'd be forgiven for thinking the whole thing is filler.

Anyone have any idea when the filler will cease?

I kinda dig the format of splicing canon material in with the filler flashback stories. :P

Okay. I do prefer separation of content, but so far, I find this format to be unique and refreshing.


@yehobang: It's anyone's guess at this time.

This reminds me of how Sasuke was a good kid back then, just a bit cool, that's all.

But I liked the teamwork lines him and Naruto had.

Good stuff.

But hey...that intro...I wonder if that has some meaning to it or not.

10/10
