The filler continues with this chilling tale.

overall, i liked this episode. not great, but not bad. average. it was enjoyable watching it.

couldn't naruto just use the nine-tails to disturb his chakra and wouldn't the clones just disappear? like during his fight with pain in the six-tails mode.

i lol'd at guy in this episode. He always knows how to make an episode/chapter funny.

all this time, those clones sounded smarter than the real naruto. but it's filler so whatever.

Was actually a normal episode minus Gai's behaviour at times. I really find they over do it.

I kinda liked it too. Naruto's clones were smarter & more strategic than him.

The ending... no, the whole thing felt like a Shyamalan movie. Except with the twist at the end making the episode better, not worse. Realizing it was all a clone's dream that got mixed with the original's reality made me think about whether or not this reality we're in now is just a dream, like in the Matrix or, perhaps more accurately, Total Recall. Naruto's "what just happened" expression made for an excellent finish. 10/10 for entertainment and making me think, in my experience you don't really get that from anime.

Great episode, especially compared to the last few weeks' swill. It touches on something I've considered before—if shadow clones could or would display individuality if the circumstances were right—although my view diverges from that point, since the circumstances in the episode weren't nearly the ones I had in mind. Though it's certainly possible, I don't think they'd care to go to the extent they did in the dream (although it being a dream is arguably part of the point). But surely, if anybody's clones would go to that kind of trouble, it would be Naruto's.

Gai's insanity was probably my favorite part, however stupid and pointless his sequence was; the briefs didn't do much for me, but who knew he looked so good with his hair slicked back? (The unnecessarily dramatic music helped a lot, too, I think.)

Or something like that. Dreams of any kind are open to interpretation.

I can honestly say that was one of the best fillers I've seen. It had the perfect mixture of random, (self-deprecating on the series or otherwise) humor, and psychological thriller. I was pretty sure it was a dream and even that revelation didn't make the episode any less appealing.

Other than small little "can't do a rasengan without clones/always relying on his clones" meta-joke, the episode also poked fun at real life identity issues, blending it in with labor unions and strikes. It touched on a clone's perspective and individuality, which is a little...discontinuous as all of the clones are technically Naruto, and their purposes are to serve ensure the successful completion of whatever for the main Naruto.

Also, there was an eerie feel in this episode that you don't find in very many. This episode chilled me more than any of the ghost ones - and I loved it.

The suggestive scenes and imagery with Gai was pretty funny too.

I liked the labor union concept they had going when the clones went on strike. Naruto treating them as lesser than he is just because they are clones really touched upon discrimination as well. It was interesting to see each clone have its own individual personality. I never stopped to think about that before. I especially enjoyed the jab the clones took at Naruto for not being able to do Rasengan without them. It's like Naruto was confronted by some of his harsher critics.

This episode was better than I thought it was going to be. Last week when I saw the preview for this episode I wasn't really looking forward to watching it. I am glad that it turned out to be a good watch. It seemed rather apparent from the beginning that this was all a dream but that didn't take away from the episode. I thought Gai supplied some nice comedic relief all throughout. The slicked back hair he was sporting wasn't too shabby. I got a kick out of seeing Aoba dressed up in a seagull costume. He really looked ridiculous with that on.

Episode gets a 7.

This was such a dumb episode, anything that ends with "It was all a dream sucks", and if it wasn't a dream, it ruins the whole idea of Shadow Clone jutsu. So stupid.
