Hand Banana's view on this anime
1) Guren being alive was much expected. Buttsecks can not defeat the power of lameliness.
1a) Clayface saving her was unexpected. This guy
2) Ten ten's expression was sexy and she needed more face time than she got
3) Akamaru needs to be put down. Worst watchdog eva.
4) Deidara surprise no buttsecks technique was so fast even ANBU didn't see it.
5) Speaking of ANBU, thanks again to the anime for making them look like disposable men from the start of this filler to the end.
6) Don't forget Yūkimaru still doesn't have a place to call home. Guren killed his mom and everyone in the village. They will now be nomad ninjas.
7) We also find out Tsunade has a crack addiction.
Overall this was a C+ episode that quickly jumped up to B+ once Akatsuki showed.
