I dreamed that I dreamed

Spoiler alert for those who have not watched beyond episode 431 of Naruto Shippuden.

Madara cast the spell Infinite Teppanyaki Tsukoyomi and put most of the shinobis in a dream-like state. Most of the dreams were quite simple and each lasted at most 2 episodes but the one by Tsunade, oh boy, could fill an entire anime's season.

After having watched the entire dream sequence, this was what happened (each open square bracket indicates an "inception"):

In reality, Tsunade was dreaming about

[Her having fallen asleep at a desk and dreaming about

          [Her reading Jiraya's novel that wrote about

                    [The Child of Prophecy.

The last one occupied most of the episodes with the first one reflected in only about half an episode where she was woken up by Dan (her lover who in reality was dead long time ago).

Although a little cheesy and an obvious money-grabber/delay tactic, this particular mini-arc was quite nice because many beloved characters were alive. I can imagine Tsunade willingly live in this dream.

The next arc is about Itachi's childhood. I've watched the first two episodes. Seems promising.
