    Maybe it's just me, but, with Sasuke's kick-ass return, three interesting new anti-heroes, Itachi and Kisame getting back in the game, the return of Team 8, Orochimaru's death, Kabuto becoming the new Orochimaru, the reintroduction of the Zabuza sword, and the sheer win that is Tobi: this seems like it will be the best arc of Part II so far, and, depending on how it ends, maybe one of the best Naruto arcs ever.

    How would you rank the current arc (whatever its name will eventually be) compared to previous arcs?

    Depends if Naruto, Yamato, Sai and the other Team Hebi members get some fights. If atleast 3 out of the ones I've mentioned do then it's gearing up to be a great arc. However if all of them do then hell yeah it definately will be one.

    This one isn't over yet.. and it really does deliver.

    - Gaara dies, but comes back (Hooray!)
    - Asuma dies (Aww..)
    - Orochimaru is pwned (OMGWTFROTFL!!!)

    It's an easy descision to make

    This one, and it'll only get better when some of the upcoming fights go down. There is so much going on...this is gonna be a long arc.

    Its looking to out do the whole Hidan/Kakuzu vs. Konoha, which is my favorite Naruto arc ever.

    I just want Naruto to get more time to shine in actual combat.

    Sai and Shino better get some action too.

    well, it could be, depending on how the fights go. It might just peter out and end up being nothing, though......

    Yea I don't get y people disliked it so much. I know it ended on a sucky level, but like it had everything you could luv about the series. Hidan/Kakuzu were hilarious, ASUMA DIED, AOBA SHOWED UP, MY MAN RAIDOU CAME IN DA HOE WITH A CAPE and a...BLACK SWORD! lol. Kakashi showed his stuff, Shikamaru showed wat happens if u let him survive knowing ur moves. Naruto was calm as ever and pretty much owned da hell outta Kakuzu. One of the saddest moments in the series.

    People who didn't even like this arc need to just give up on the series. The lack of background and quick ending of the Zombie twins was a pissoff but it doesn't negate everything else for me.

    EDIT: Oh and it seemed like the most ninja-esqe arc since Zabuza.

    The arc when Asuma died is my favorite so far.

    It really depends how this arc develops.

    Yea, when I actually think back to the arc you are correct on a lot of accounts. Kakuzu's death just left an absolutely horrible taste in my mouth, but before that I liked the hole Asuma death, Konoha 12 protectors, etc stuff.

    And Aoba did show up, I forgot about that :nod

    It definitely looks to be the best since the Sasori arc so far. It depends how much gets resolved this arc I think. If Itachi's defeat gets pushed to another arc then that one will be better than this one no doubt.

    Great stuff going on though. I'm really excited about this series right now.

    Definately the best so far because it satisfies the Naruto fans, the Sasuke fans the team 8 fans, the Akatsuki fans... etc There will be a LOT of awesome fights (catfights included), some super plot twists (like Kabuto's) and a bunch of suspense.

    Team 8 + Sasuke + DeiTobi + OroKabu + dogs

    So, yes. Best arc so far.

    Karin and Juugo are hardly interesting. Suigetsu's the only new character worth the screentime. Other than that, this has the potential to be the best arc of Part II so far. Though right now the Gaara arc holds that title for me.

    The chuunin exams arc is my fave so far. But this arc can very easily beat it depending on how things go from now:).

    As long as Itachi doesn't die this has the potential to be the best arc.

    Anything with Sasuke and Shino is the best arc ever.

    Team Hebi, Suigetsu is win but not Juugo and Karin.

    Great Ninja like plot.

    And Kubuto's back.

    I love all of the new characters, Deidara and Yamato get more action, and Kabuto is back in the story.

    There is little that can ruin this arc for me so far.

    So far so good. It has the nostalgic feel of days when Naruto was amazing. Plus, it's so different from the constant baby formula that Kishimoto had been feeding us over the course of Part II. Dead Orochimaru, Zabuza's sword which cannot be beat, Kimimaro reference, throwback to the androids from Dragonball Z, Team 8, weapon facility town, ninja cats, ninja dogs, backgrounds, fights that will potentially be some of the best to date, good pacing, and--now--Orochibuto.

    This arc so far is a godsend. And it has the potential to even be the best arc depending on how things are handled. So far it's the best arc of Part II for me, but I'm pretty excited to see where things go on from here.

    Though I think it would be more appropriate to ask this question after the arc is finished.

    I haven't been this exciting about the next chapter since Kimimaro, wow, has it really been that many chapters since the series makes me nervously twitch while waiting for next week?
