Naruto Shippuuden episode 303

I don’t like this. I don’t like it when they bring back previous characters that didn’t really contribute that much to the story. In a way they may have, but there existence has been long forgotten by many until this very episode.

I thought that we were back to where we started; a ridiculous fest where Zetsu tries to kill as many Shinobi as he can. What’s the point? The real damage has already been done; everyone is weary of one another. Great mental damage has been inflicted. Why spike the ball?

But no, it wasn’t about that, not entirely. It was about the freaky foursome that kidnapped Sasuke on Orochimaru’s behalf back when Naruto wasn’t as popular as now. I wasn’t exactly exited to see these four blasts from the past. I never liked these characters and their skills to begin with. They fight with borrowed power, so that’s a no-no for as far as I’m concerned.

You would think that it would be over pretty quickly when they fight against much stronger versions of the ones that defeated them in the first place. That’s why I was a bit surprised to see that there was quite a struggle at first.

I guess the time and place is different, huh? Those four were defeated again, but they didn’t die because of their immortal bodies. Rather, they were just diversion. Their real aim was to transport the strongest Shinobi around to another location and (probably) finish them off in order to weaken the foe’s attack force. It’s a cunning plan, I agree, but overall pretty interesting. You could say that that was the only interesting thing about this particular episode.
