Episode 19: Sarada Uchiha. This is the start of the gaiden right? So in theory this shouldn't take too long. Hopefully.
So the episode does admittedly start of strong with a brush painting the uchiha symbol in red. Before showing the symbol on Salad's back and we see her watching the hokage monument and someone is paintin...oh god they are rewriting episode 700 aren't they? Thankfully, no. Bolt is lashing out like a spoiled brat and painting "idiot" on Naruto's face. We see Shikamaru and his son training. Sai is also training with his son. It's all the parents training with their kids. This did happen in the gaiden first chapter as well but Naruto was playing hide and go seek with his son in that. So to keep the narrative of naruto neglecting his son they actually changed it into something more negative. So bolt had to do this to get Naruto to spend time with him. Salad sends Naruto the wrong way when bolt is hiding like the manga. Shikamaru catches him...yep this is different from the gaiden and far more negative. In the gaiden Shikamaru only talks to Bolt; here he shadow binds him and then orders his son to get Naruto.
So fat filler talks to salad who is moping. Wait the graduation exams were just around the corner in the gaiden here they aren't coming up soon? Oh here's where they add that what does a ninja mean question that the gaiden eventually dropped. God she looks too much like Ino. Much of this is from the manga. Please at the very least could they drop the looking for her real dad gag I don't want to suffer through that again for ten weeks. I'll even pick a different nickname for her if they don't...NOOOO!!! THEY ARE DOING IT! NOOO!!! TEN WEEKS OF THE SAME UNFUNNY GAG OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!! Whelp. She still is and stays Fat Filler then.
Oh there the picture frame that is going to start this arc. So when Sakura going to destroy her home again? After SS is torn a new kitten again? So Sakura comes home and notices Salad is crying. Thinking something made be wrong with her eye she quickly goes over concern to check. She very serious about Salad's eyes, but doesn't seem to have much worry in her face, as much as strictness throughout this entire scene. So Salad ask about the glasses bit and here where they tear it a new kitten but instead of doing when Sakura doing laundry outside during dinner. Dammit no, it just ended on that question not being answered.
She goes to the library to learn more about the uchiha. She can't access some files for some reason.
Oh now they are doing the laundry scene. They changed it so Salad and Sakura are separated by a sheet while Salad is asking her question instead of looking into Sakura's eyes when she can't answer Salad simple questions. Then take it down when Salad ask if Sakura is even Sasuke's wife. God they don't display much emotion on Sakura's face keeping it almost completely flat. They soften a lot of this scene including how rapidly Salad was asking the questions, Sakura face during it, and even Sakura outburst when she can't handle it. The house isn't even destoried that made Sakura faint in the manga. Instead she apologizes for the outburst, and when Salad ask even more question she just touches her forehead clearly to remind people for the forehead poke. Oh now it's destroyed.
They also changed Shizune from checking on Sakura in her house to in front of Sakura's damaged house. they even sent her the hospital instead of just resting in Shizune's house. Salad found the photo. And changed again so Shizune see it while Salad is next to Sakura's bedside. They also make Shizune say Sakura is her mother instead of not being able to answer in the manga.
Then the Choji's family bit. Oh Fat filler was once sick and she recalls a shadowy man giving her mother the medicine to cure her. Of course it's her father in his slim down form. So they added this to justify her gag.
Then ends with Sasuke in a forest fighting the celebi kid.
This entire episode is trying to soft the negative anti SS first chapter of the gaiden, even the change in the Naruto's & Bolt's interaction is to show that not everyone is able to spend time with their father unlike the gaiden where Naruto was spending time with him.
