It's a funny thing about that arc. I didn't care much for Asuma, still kinda don't but it was sad that Kurenai lost her husband and the father of their child. That's pretty sad. I'm glad Shikamaru got to avenge him. If anyone ever doubted Shikamaru as one of Konoha's best just remember this. He beat Hidan, a Akatsuki member, all by himself. Not many besides Naruto and Sasuke can say they've done that. I'm glad Shikamaru had his awesome moment in the series. It showed he came a really long way from that lazy bum from the Chunnin Exams. I always wished Choji and Ino got to help, because they were really starting to become irrelevant to Team 10. But the thing about the Hidan/Kakazu arc, it had little sequel during the war arc. And this is one of the few times I'll praise the war arc. Team 10 vs Asuma is without a doubt one of the best things to come out of the war. We got to see Choji and Ino growth as shinobi. And I never expected Ino Yamanaka to be anything more then a lame Sasuke groupie. I had a slice of humble pie seeing the things Ino did in this war. Choji as well. Team 10 imo got one of best deals among the Konoha 11, minus Naruto creating Narutoism.
