For the last few years, it has been my pleasure making this talkback threads for Naruto Shippuden. Unfortunately my busy-ness has become such that even taking the few minutes to make these have become more difficult than its worth. So with this episode, I will be taking my leave from making these threads and I will pass the responsibility onto someone else. This is the last episode of the Pain arc, and also finishes the controversial plot twist I mentioned from last week. This, incidentally, is also the end of what I call the "golden era" of Shippuden where the quality of the adaptation was, at least IMO, consistently good. After this will be some fairly pointless filler that flash back to the OG era to close out this year and continue into winter (with a slow adaptation of a canon chapter going on intermediately). We won't return to canon Shippuden until early spring of next year I believe. Til next time, stay gold. Believe it!
