What an absolutely stupendous episode... everything from the animation to the soundtrack was top-notch. Speaking of soundtrack, I can't stop replaying the part where that new(?) track that sounds like another version of that track from RTN, titled, "My Name," plays; it was just perfect for the scene.
I've never been overly fond of Naruto as a character, as I find him as platitudinous as any other Shounen protagonist who plays the role of a savior, but dammit! I will mark out for 'Dat Bijuu Mode.
'Dat Rikudou, too...
