Naruto Shippuuden 324
I'm sorry guys.. can't find the streaming versions right now, only download version:
These are all torrents.. and I watched the 720P version, its legit :)
[ delete the post if someone puts up a better way of extracting these files.. ] NJOY!!
I didn't mind the filler in this episode! The battle with Pain was a nice touch, even if it wasn't the most unpredictable (I still liked seeing the Gedo technique rods used extensively rather than just spamming general Path abilities).
I was never one for the Ukataka arc, but it makes sense that they had to have Naruto remember him... and it set things up even more for Tobi mentioning the pain of being a Jinchuuriki. Granted, it'll be weird if the bond with Ukataka is played up further throughout the upcoming episodes, but for now I think it was well-integrated.
The filler stuff was meh...nice animation though.
I liked the verbal exchange between Tobi and Naruto at the end. They did a good job capturing the intensity exhibited in the manga.
Agreed Rlin.. and indeed, the animation was like it should be!!! just watch the episode when Madara came out of the coffin; the last two episodes ( especially when Madara was rampaging those average shinobi's.. ) that was very poor animation. I also like these filler ups and it seems like next episode is going to be a good one.
( I just don't get it.. how can they switch back- forwards every time, if it comes to the animation :S )
Who wants to bet that, when analyzing Tobi's Paths to see which has each of Pain's jutsu, we'll get flashbacks of each to illustrate the techniques? The Pain fighting in this flashback almost seems like a review to help the audience remember the abilities.
