Probably the first episode in a while that actually felt like an episode instead of feeling like it's a piece to an arc. 10/10 here.

Seeing Izuna hurt was the most emotional I had ever seen Madara act, and the most human as an adult. His facial expression I won't forget.
It was like, when the moment really counted, he put down his defense and that showed the real humanity of both of them.

This was like classic 90's anime great time.

Damn, I actually cried when hashirama said his final words to his fellow senju and when madara stopped hashirama from killing himself. The whole episode from beginning to end has shown a lot of heart and reminding me of the current events in the manga makes me feel really sad.
10/10 for me.

Haven't had an episode this well nourished with a balance of pace, action, great animation, and music too. 10/10 for sure!

I really appreciated what Pierrot and Atsushi Nigorikawa did with this episode. I thought it was going to be a little more fast paced with the episode covering more content from the manga. I really liked the extra filler to the fights of Izuna/Tobirama and Madara/Hashirama, a nice surprise. Artwork and Animation are great as always from Nigorikawa. Nice to see the founding of the village at the end. 10/10

This episode brought me to tears it was amazing to see to what lengths Hashirama would go for his friend although he was obviously stronger in both mind and body. I loved every single second! Naruto fans live for episodes like these!!!

Artwork and Animation are great as always from Nigorikawa.

Nigorikawa was just the storyboard and episode director. Yuuri Ichinose and Masaya Onishi were the animation supervisors for this episode, each one being responsible for the first and second halves respectively. If you'll notice, there was a pretty gigantic dip in quality for the second half.

What an excellent episode.

First of all it was nice getting to see Madara's father, Tajima, animated. Speaking of family members I don't remember Kishimoto showing Hashirama's other brother that was killed by the Uchiha in the manga. If he did then I must have forgotten. If he didn't then this was a good addition.

The filler fight between Izuna and Tobirama was a treat. Every time I see Izuna I can't help but think of Sasuke. The extra battle between Madara and Hashirama was a pleasant surprise and an epic encounter. I know I have said this before but Hashirama stopping Tobirama from dealing the killing blow on Madara is reminiscent of Goku doing the same when Krillen wanted to kill Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z. It brings back good memories of one of the first anime I watched.

Episode gets a 10.

Yes I know that, I posted all that info, lol. Nigorikawa didn't have his best team with him because they have been working on other series like SAO 2 and Tokyo Ghoul. Also Pierrot has 3 other series they're working on so definitely not an amazing episode. It made up for that though in a lot of respects. Overall still a nice looking episode. Got another one coming from Hiroyuki Yamashita next month.
