Amy McNulty: "It seems I was a little too quick to judge last week. As it turns out, we will be seeing the hitherto-unexplored story of Ashura and Indra—starting next week. This week, however, Naruto Shippūden adapts a couple more chapters of its quickly-dwindling source material before it gets back to the filler arc it began a few weeks ago. With the way things have been going, it honestly feels like this show is becoming bored with itself. Fortunately, its latest attempt at expanding on the overarching plot represents the series in top form."
