Honestly, this is one of the best episodes of Naruto I've seen in a while. Don't get me wrong - the final episodes were great, but anything other than that has lacked it's potential I feel; especially with all of the 'filler'. So it was refreshing to watch such an interesting idea take place. I'm excited to watch more! I was extremely sad when the episode ended.
I love how much all the characters have grown. Especially the kind of people they've become.
Sakura really needs to fucking stop punching Naruto though. Like damn girl, I love you but you need to CHILL.
