I thought there was a bit too much Asuma bashing this chapter. Like sure, Kakashi has obviously chosen a different, accelerated training regime for his team and sure, they probably kick ass. But I didn't think it was necessary to make Asuma out to be an incompetent, naive jounin instructor to show how far Team 7 has come. Also noticed that we barely see any interaction with Team 10 at all this chapter - we're told about it, but aren't shown it. Dunno whether the author is intentionally trying to make a point about how irrelevant the other characters have become to Team 7, or whether the author was just being lazy.
