Now we got to the good part of the show. Now my posts are going to be overloaded with words like ‘awesome’ and while typing I’ll have this expression ♥‿♥
But seriously, if it was just an adaptation of my favorite fight, well, I would have been somewhat excited, but I would still be able to keep myself under control. But they did what looks to me to be the best animated episode in the show. And it is very well directed too. They added stuff into the episode, but it wasn’t a filler stuff, like static scenes and such. They added very well done fighting scene when Madara was owning shinobi and displaying all sorts of skills. They added some little bits that helped to build the atmosphere and the feeling of the episode. I am truly amazed by the quality of this episode.
In the manga, the best part of this fight was that meteorite thing. In the anime it was impressive too, but I actually liked the normal fight better. And they didn’t do Susanoo that well.
By the way, I want to say that it is obviously not a meteorite. The worst thing about meteorites is their speed. That is the source of destruction they are causing. What Madara summoned was just a casual slow bolder. If it was a meteorite, then Oonoki would have been crushed when he touched it, because of the difference in speed. If you are interested in the physics of the process, ask in the comments : D
And why did I say that about Naruto? Well, he is the only one who dealt with such big jutsu before. He fought Nagato twice and each time Nagato used some pretty scary ninjutsu.
One other thing I want to mention is that now I don’t know what they are going to do about the animation of the other scenes with Madara. After such a magnificent episode they can’t blow the thing up and make some crappy animation, it will just look inconsistent. I hope they can’t.
By the way, did you notice how simple color-wise his hair is? While they did a great job animating the episode, the art was pretty simplistic. And, talking about noticing…
And to finish this post I should put here some pictures of Gaara. Here ^_^
Look closely at those pictures. I bet what they did in this episode, they made 3D models of each of the characters and made all the scenes using them, and after that they painted the cells over the 3D art. And the models came from one of the late Naruto games.
Hope you liked the episode as much as I did. Watch in HD, 780p is a minimum. And I don’t think you should be watching it on streaming sites, I don’t think they will give it justice. See you next time (^_^)/
