I don’t know what to say about this filler. There was a lot of dumbness in it, but still, the story was original and tided up pretty well. I don’t know.
S o, first of all, Yota was a reanimation done by Orochimaru. He was testing the new justu.
She was a kekkei genkai shinobi (as I understand it) but died because of her weak health. She Orochimaru let her wonder near the village, which is super dumb, because this way he could have let the village people learn about his ability to perform Edo Tensei.
Also we learned that Shikamaru used to be much better with shadow possession jutsu. He was able to run while controlling people and he didn’t need to keep his hands locked.
And we learned that Naruto’s first friend was Yota. You thought it was Sasuke? Well, you were wrong. You should watch more fillers to learn that sort of stuff.
Also, we already knew that nameless leaf shinobi are worthless, but here is another proof. Anbu got beaten by children:
Also, if you need a proof that Naruto and his friends are kind of dumb, here it is. After Yota got out of the river they were really thinking that he was dying. If someone dies from drowning, he is not talking with you, as a rule. But for some reason I think that the dumb ones were the people who wrote the script.
Also, how did Yota make all of them forget about him? That just wasn’t explained at all.
Well, that is it for the Yota arc. Hope the next one will be better. Btw, that has nothing to do with the episode, but did you notice that really strange name in the credits:
And here is the preview for the next episode:
See you next time (^_^)/
