Great episode, especially the final scene with the new Epic music for Kabuto's Edo Tensei: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxQDQ4G4rTk

Sounds like a remix of the theme they were giving for Orochimaru in Shippuuden, so it'd be nice to think of it as Kabuto's theme.

Next episode preview shows that we'll be getting some new (canon) flashbacks next week. New OP too
Looks like it'll also be a comprehensive recap of Part 1 which should go through April.
 
Fuuuuuu...Zabuza and Salamander are back. Throw in the towel, it's over...

Wait...they didn't summon the religious nut that does the rituals and can't die, right? I mean, he is still technically alive isn't he?
 
If I recall, this is the first time I saw or heard Anko in Shippuden. Otherwise cool episode and excellent stopping point temporarily, everything is about to get even more epic.


Though I dont recall Kabuto introducing all of those characters like that in the manga...
 
Why didn't he summon any of the hokages?
Well, the Third Hokage sealed the First and Second Hokages souls using the Dead Demon Consuming Seal when he fought Orochimaru, so they can't be summoned. This resulted in his soul also being consumed, so he can't be summoned. Finally the Fourth Hokage used the Dead Demon Consuming Seal to seal the Nine Tails into Naruto after Madara's attack on Konoha, resulting in his own soul being consumed, and thus he also can't be summoned.

Hm. When the Third fought Orochimaru, he attempted to summon three coffins. The first two were the brother Hokages while the third one was stopped by the Third. I assume the third one was the Fourth no?

In the manga you don't see the third coffin - Orochimaru just remarks that it didn't work. However in the anime you do see the third coffin, which has "Four" written on it, so it is implied he tried to summon Minato, which explains the summoning failure as his soul had been consumed by the Death God after using the Dead Demon Consuming Seal.
 
Got vibes at the end there. Shame they didn't show
the 2nd Mizukage and Gaara's speech

Wait, Naruto's going back to fillers?



Even if it's just a month, they're going to cut the war short later this year with another 6 months of filler. Why cut it off here if we're just getting 1-2 months of cannon content? Guh, this show.
 
Better to do fillers now while they are ramping up production of the movie which will likely poach a good chunk of their animation talent, and then get back to the story once that's died down. Speaking of which (from the manga thread):

劇場版NARUTO-ナルト-『ロード・トゥ・ニンジャ』

http://plus.2chdays.net/read/moeplus/1332726968.html

Director- Hayato Date himself
Screenplay- Yuka MIYATA

Kishimoto sensei - original creator, story, character design, planning
Character Design: Hirofumi Suzuki, Tetsuya Nishio also
Music: Yasuharu Takanashi, -yaiba-
cast: Naruto, Sakura and Minato with regular VA listed.
Kishimoto is writing the story (not the script) of this movie. First time he's involved himself in a production outside of the manga to this level. Nishio and Suzuki heading up the character art (likely will bring in some key animators) and the top 3 VA's being Naruto, Sakura and Minato.
 
Any reason these three characters were not summoned; Konan, Kisame and Jiraiya. I'm just going to run on the assumption the technique requires the body to be intact but Deidara kind of rules that out...

Kabuto needs their DNA. Jiraiya's body sunk so that ruled him out. The other two I don't think he gave an explanation though.

How do you know we're getting 6 months of filler?

On this note, out of all the characters summoned, there was one I was curious as to why he wasn't summoned; Kakashi's father, the Lengendary White Fang. He was stated as being a ninja on the same levels of the Sannin, so why not bring him back?
 
Oooh really exciting! All these former guys back from the dead is kinda disturbing, gonna be some sad confrontations too.

So some recap month of celebrations or whatever these are gonna be coming up? The just shown story of his parents was like the highlight of the series for me so far and something I had been waiting sooooo long to see so I can deal with a break while it ramps up for the next hopefully exciting bits to to come!

Also bout damn time for a new OP, hated this one, feels like its been on forever too which has made it worse. >_<
 
Ah saw the episode, really I think its just best suited for kids and for really hardcore fans who somehow wanted more time with Tenten (who talks so much). SD did have some funny moments in the two skits in episode 1 though. Baffled at Neji's response to Lee


Also hilarious how Naruto still ends up winning when he isnt the main character.
