What They Say:

Back stor ymaterial showing the formation of the village and the peace between the clans has been a big part of the last few episodes. For me, world building like this is vastly entertaining, but it’s given the short form approach here as we spent most of our time with the problems between the two clans and a kid of quick look at it all before the main resolution was settled. So much so that the prologue to this episode catches us up on things easily with a handshake, a smile and the start of the growth and founding of the Hidden Leaf village as we see the forest turn to buildings and the expansion of it all under the watchful eyes of Madara and Hashirama. It’s good in its own way, but it left me craving a full story to explore it all.
