Looks like they pulled a One Piece during the opening, plenty of spoilerific goodness. Too bad the animation won't look anything like that in the actual show anyway the interesting thing here is the effects of the Jiraiya gaiden to this story, being able to cut down on the flashbacks to just the select few moments which are actually relevant to the here and now is certainly an improvement.

this sub arc wont take long at all with this pace, i can even see some good filler fight bits just to drag it out a little. only thing im scared of is that in my mind its almost certain for new filler arc after the arc is done

I thought this was so good. I loved it and next week's gonna be even better.
The subtile filler addings were done greatly, like that beardy guy being the husband of that woman.. but that constant rain reminds me of my home country the Netherlands xD
Pacing could've been a slight bit faster though.
9/10

Come on the rain is not that bad... well these last couple days... anyway personally I always dislike it when the anime gets all grey like this. It's so depressing and it just doesn't pop off the screen.

I got to hand it to them Naruto Shippuden is heading in a fantastic direction. The new opening was epic and really fit with the mood of then story. The animation and pacing were fantastic but things seemed really dark at times. Jiraiya has proven once again that anything he does whether it's pervy or serious is epic. Pain and Konan are realy scary. It's one thing to say you're a powerful ninja but something else entirely to say you're a god. It looks like an epic battle is starting and only time will tell who wins. On the other side of things Madara seems to be involved but I'm not sure how. The preview for the next episode looks good.

New Opening was awesome. (none of that Blue bird band that I really dislike IMO)

New Ending was also great.

I found it funny when they played the cow noise. very funny.

the pasing and art were amazing.

10/10, I'm really liking that Studio Pierrot has recently been taking the animation more seriously, the Deidara/Sasuke fight was great, and this stuff was excellent. The pacing and flow to all the episodes lately has been very good, during the sub arc where Sasuke was gathering his team I found the flow had gotten really awkward. I'm really looking forward to the next episode, some really cool fighting is going to be happening, and just from the preview I can already tell that the animation is going to be great.

On a side note, the new opening is now one of my favourite Naruto openings yet, along with a very awesome song to go with it.

Looks up the old fan-translations of the chapter in question.

(The Japanese here is a pun, "turn [you] into a frog" = "kaeru ni kaeru", "frog" and "turn into" being homophonous)

I gave this episode 9. I looved the part where Ero-sennin was the bartender; it made me laugh beyond belief!! I also liked the part where the J-man and the frog were talking about Madara...why...I don't know, I guess it's because its Madara they were talking about. Konan looks and sounds emo. I like her jutsu though. Too bad she was told to step back right before the fight started. Looove Pain's(p-e-i-n) jutus where he makes it rain! Can't wait to see the rest of the bodies and more of what he can do. I also can't wait to see the next episode and sage mode. Oooh and a new opening and ending...LOOOOOVE it!!! じゃあ。。。また!!

Just amazing the new opening and end were great both song and animation episode was well put i like that they gave the genin with the goatee a little back story. The opening of the episode was well worth the wait and was done great jariaya coming out of the toad was nice. When i first heard konan voice i thought it was good but that was back then listening to her now makes it better. And long here pain was better animated than the first pain we've been seeing. The way that genin describe Pain's no mercy attitude was one of my favorite parts that along with seeing summoning Pain at 13:27. Konan was nicely animated in her skirmish with Jariaya thought it was cool how jariaya just did that hulk like jump at Pain while laughing.

I thought the ED was... ehh, uninspired to say the least, but then again I've never liked any of Shippuuden's endings. As far as the music goes, I think most of them sound atrociously bland. This one's no exception.

You either recant that statement or I'll force you to Bacchikoi for everyone, son.

Oh damn! Can't believe I forgot about the only ED I actually enjoyed.

I'm genuinely losing touch with this series.
