Naruto Shippuuden - Season 5 - Episode 180 - Review: "Inari's Tested Courage"

It's rather amusing that the show is putting out its summaries talking entirely about material in the present which makes up a tiny fraction of the episode itself. This one teases nicely at the start by showing the Leaf residents figuring out what they have to do next and how that even though their village has been destroyed, they have their lives and who they are to carry them forward. But that there's a lot of work ahead of them. There's a bit of a copout with this though as Yamato makes an appearance and generates a series of row houses that wipes him out but revives a small part of the village. Abilities like that take away from the hard toiling to repair things I had wanted to see, though Yamato won't do it all since it's such a huge drain on him. It is good to see everyone chipping in though while Naruto is thinking worriedly about Tsunade, even as Sakura tries to prop him up some.

While they could do a really decent episode, even as filler, showing the village being rebuilt and reacquainting us with many of the residents that we might not have seen for awhile, instead we get to go back in time to yet another Little Naruto story. With Kakashi now having taken on his team after they went through his little test, something we saw in the main series way back at the start, we get a fairly simple little adventure that lets them bring in Sasuke for a bit and run through the usual kind of gags and silliness (sexy jutsu continues to be awful!) while trying to tie it to the present. The present had Naruto meeting up with Inari, a child he hadn't seen in ages who has grown up a fair bit in the last few years, and this story goes back even further to show Inari in the village and a bit of a struggle he went through.
