Sadly, even though we get some good time with more well known characters like Choji and Ino as they take the fight out strong against the resurrected members from their past, we also get a lot of flashbacks to when they were all teacher/student and comrades in arms. Others are brought in as well for a time but a good chunk of the two episodes, what feels like probably half of the total run time overall, is given over to this kind of flashback. They’re useful in the sense that it hepls remind us about the connections, gives it a chance to be reanimated if necessary, and highlights the connections in a clearer way for those that may not remember everything or missed episodes along the way. But it also just slows things down heavily in the end and that gets to be a real burn at times.
