    But that's not the reason they gave. And if it was that, they could have sent anyone over the last three years.

    I have a bad feeling Sai was introduced so they could just use his attacks as an animation shortcut.

    Won't lie. The animation on those living drawings is pretty good.

    The reason Tsunade gave regarding their desire to bring Sasuke back has partly to do with her being more willing to gamble on having faith in Naruto and Sakura doing what they've been hoping and training to do. Say what you will about that, but the fact is the old Tsunade before the Search for Tsunade arc probably wouldn't have even considered such a decision. Though she doesn't intend to do so without at least searching for new members temporarily fill the slot in Team Kakashi first. There's also an additional reason behind letting Naruto be part of this mission that won't be addressed until the next episode or two, which I won't go into detail about. What I will say though is that that other reason adds to her willingness to play things less safe. How reckless her decision would be depends on whether having faith in Naruto would pay off in the long run.

    Regarding whether to send other ninja after Orochimaru, the surprise invasion on the Hidden Leaf village from both the Sound village and Sand Village three years ago during the chunin exam led to many casualties (the big one being the third Hokage) and left the village in deep need of rebuilding and recovering. This also meant all ninja from genin to jonin had to work around the clock in various missions outside the village, many being high-ranked and were often unavailable. This stayed that way for a while, even when Tsunade had just became Hokage. This was why despite Shikamaru's request, he couldn't get chunin or jonin level ninja to retrieve Sasuke in the first place and had to stick with this group in the Sasuke retrieval arc.

    Spoiler:

    Because the Hidden Leaf was still recovering and many ninja their had their hands tied, there was little to nothing that could be done about Orochimaru. That said, Orochimaru needed time due to not getting Sasuke's body in time and having to get a different one instead for the time being. There was nothing he could do but sit and wait and there was not much the Hidden Leaf could effectively do either, so it was a stalemate for the duration of the timeskip.
