Ah yes, the badassiery flowing out of Hanzou is priceless. Well done Kishi, well done.
Hanzou, he really reminds me of Naruto, but it may be because they are both Uzumaki's(LOOK, spiral on his clothes. This would explain why he was able to survive the poison and adapt to it.
He defeated his enemies and those, with great hope and faith, regarded as worthy ones by giving them names, the ones that one day may bring peace to the world, the true friends in battle for peace.
I REALLY hope Ino.Shika.Cho are slaughtered! No, only Ino.Cho. Shika is actually more than a worthless one-trick pony. GOD I can't stand those two.
And this is a much-better ending for Hanzou. I want to claim that the flashback only happened to introduce the convenient plot-point of the poison sac to seal him, but it was too well-integrated. It played into his nickname, his knack for poisons, the reason for his mask, and gave great insight into the former "Salamander Hanzou". All in all, a great send-off for this shinobi, with no pacing lost in the story.
And yes! I knew Asuma had more tricks up his sleeve. Though I'm certain this technique is pretty low-level, or he would've used it in the fight that killed him. Still, great to see what else he can do besides his chakra knives!

Nice chap! 4/5
What's up Motherf*ckers?!...
It was a good to know more about Hanzou.
I think, Kabuto is going to be more carefull from now on, he did not expect some ET that was eager to fight to change his mind. I don't see he making that kind of mistake with Nagato, Itachi and the tailbeast.
From that point of view, Oro still in front of him, he did not let the first and second chat after the battle start.
Chougi, does't know Asuma ET can not be destroied? He really needs to man up! I think he going to realize that when Ino get hurt.
This kind of chapters is the reason why I love reading Naruto. Not just mindless action but a perfect balance between action and drama. Kudos to Kishi!
