I watched this episode, two days late, but that’s ok. This episode was interesting to me, because I did not remember what was going to happen. I read those chapters that long ago. After watching it I checked manga and I found out that they mixed two chapters to make the episode. So what, you ask me, they can’t get enough material from one chapter, and so they get to the next one, they do it all the time. Yes, that is right. But this time they used material from the chapter 553, the last page from the chapter 555 and most of the chapter 556. They left chapters 554 and 555 almost unused. And you know what was in the chapters they left behind? The fight between the Third Raikage and Naruto.
So why did they cut off the fight with Raikage? I think that this fight was believed to be more spectacular the the two fights they did show. So they wanted to build up the tension. But there was a reason why the fight with Mizukage was some time after the fight with the Tsuchikage. During that time Mizukage exhausted his enemies, which was shown. But now in the anime it seems like the shinobi who were fighting the Mizukage fell in a few minutes. But that won’t be the fight time they did that sort of thing with the anime.
Now a couple of words about animation. They did a good job animating some panels from the manga. You can see some little changes though.
Also that added that scene with shinobi asking Mizukage stupid question about their weapons and acting like a bunch of fools. All that is not a part of the original story.
Here is the preview for the next episode:
That is it for this post. Next one is going to be as good. Till the next time (^_^)/
