    As for the bit about gaara and the kages, that is not skipped there leaving all of that for most of February they just wanted to leave all the gaara stuff to one episode that's why they didn't do it before.

    I thought the music all round for this episode was pretty good music was playing during the battle, it was quite though.
    yeah, like I said in my post I figured they were saving those scenes for later
    As for downloading in 720p, I watch it on crunchyroll so that's not an issue for me better resolution does not equal better animation quality, it only gives you clearer artwork. Animation is movement, framing, pacing, timing, staging etc not how blurry or crystal clear it is.
    As an example of bad animation and artwork look at when Nagato does almighty push whilst inside the chameleon on naruto, itachi and bee on what i mean.

    Music was good, i suppose I'm just nitpicking but I've found that the war arc hasn't utilized music as well as past arcs have since alot of the fight scenes have very low music volume or no music at all.

    EDIT: look at your avatar as an example too. killer bee vs Sasuke+taka was beautifully animated with great artwork too.

    To those complaining about the anime, how about we start buying the anime and manga. Maybe the companies will get more money? IDK...

    First episode I've watched since Sasuke vs Kages and Danzo. Is it just me or has the animation taken a huge dip in quality? I was waiting for this episode and I'm let down by the quality. Seriously hope they get it right before the whole Obito reveal.

    Yeah, Itachi got a theme song just for breaking out of edo haha, was awsome. The animation was so so, I was really hoping they'd pull out the big guns to animate this part

    That was a great episode (surprisingly funny it some parts, too) and it played out like I remembered in the manga! Definitely 4/5 for me. It was a bit too slow for my liking with all the talking and flashbacks, but necessary for story progression. The next episode looks like it'll have more action!

    ****ty animation for a ****ty battle. Pain couldn't catch SM Naruto(who is weaker than KM Naruto) for 6-7 chapters of fighting, Nagato catches both Naruto and KB instantly in one move. Talk about plot holes, whats next Itachi saves both Naruto and KB in one move and seals Nagato away? Oh wait...

    Bring Trollkage vs Gaara and Onoki already this bs is retarded.

    It's probably because I'm in a good mood but I didn't mind the animation that much. 4/5 for me, still saving my 5/5's for later.

    That new soundtrack when Itachi broke free from edo tensei was great and then Kabuto's retarded look when he realized Itachi wasn't just some ordinary shinobi.

    Yh am I'm with you I re-watched that episode recently as well if only the animation could have stayed just like that for the rest and special animation for important scenes, who knows maybe its just to expensive to keep up.

    Well naruto is stronger as a whole once he is able to control the kyuubi's chakra but KM isn't far farr above SM, it is in speed and versatility but sage mode still has insane strength (and also some other perks) like lifting giant objects. Overall KM is stronger I would say even with the lack of insane strength so yh I somewhat agree.

    That track when itachi broke free was epic!!

    They can take a break with all the kages **** I'm not to bothered.
    If that team is animating 300-304 then that means Madaras appearance will have top notch animation.

    303 should be when he appears and 304 should be the gathering of the kage. Though I'm kind of worried about the fighting.

    It was kind of boring, and the fight scene didn't seem as beautifully put together as such classic, great fights as Jiraiya vs. Pein, Sasuke vs. Itachi, so on... 3/5, maybe 2/5 I'm not in a very good mood...

    Re: Naruto Shippuden Episode 298 "Contact! Naruto vs. Itachi" – Discussion

    I was very disappointed in this episode. It felt like it did nothing... And the animation, it sucked. Kinda lame, since I was really looking forward to it. But like some people have said, it's harder to animate the fights, and from now on, that's pretty much all we're going to see, so they're probably going to pick their spots for the more important moments

    I loved the fight, wanted to see the rest of it in this episode, but we have to wait til next week. I gave it a 4 because of the sketchy animation. Hope it is better next episode

    You guys kill me...talking about the animation like your art critics, whatever man...

    I wish they went into the Nagato part already...it seems like they are doing an episode for every manga chapter...I like it when they combine 2 for one...this is killing me waiting...5/5

    It's not that good -_- you act like he's Von Gogh or something. I can name at least 10 others that are better imo.

    OT: 5/5 Awesome episode and I finally got to see this fight in action.

    If they reanimated the Naruto vs Pain fights and Itachi/Nagato vs Naruto and Bee fights and put them in Storm 3 I would buy it without hesitation, and this is someone who doesn't play Naruto video games.

    SPOILERS BELOW
    SPOILERS BELOW
    I am really hoping that the Madara, Kabuto and Tobi fights get good animation. Them 3 fights and this fight are my favorites in the war (Probably even in or near my top 5 Naruto fights), and they have already screwed up one of them (it was still enjoyable, but no where as good as it should have been). I honestly care more about these fights having good animation then I would for another Naruto vs Sasuke battle, and that says a lot.
