Naruto Shippuuden episode 417

This is just the worst… They are really ruining the show. Their desire to milk this show as much as possible is really getting out of hand. I mean, five months of fillers and we get one or two good episodes. Now we get 2 more fillers and 1 week break in between. That’s ridiculous.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 417 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.14_[2015.06.26_23.39.58]I cannot believe that I’m still watching this. Hell, I cannot believe that I still dedicate precious time to write about Naruto Shippuuden even though they are ruining it. I must’ve been a true fool to think that the fillers would’ve been over and done with after five months of waiting. It will never be over. As long as they can make some money off of it they will continue to make and air nonsense episodes in order to drag things out as much as possible. Probably just so that the spin-off manga, a story where are favourite characters are all adults and have families of their own, gets ahead so that it can be green-lit for animation as well.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 416

Are you freakin’ kidding me!? We just have five months’ worth of fillers and now, after a single episode, we get yet another filler? What are they doing to Naruto Shippuuden!? They are completely ruining it. Money-hungry fools.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 416 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.20_[2015.06.12_23.41.34]I won’t write new Naruto Shippuuden posts until the main story continues again. This had nothing to do with any of that. I don’t want to know more about their childhood. We’re way past that now. We already know everything that we need to know about those characters. This not the time to go back to their childhood and show us how they trained, played and fought together. And yet they had the nerve to think that it was strange that the viewer count kept going down every week. That’s not strange, that’s only to be expected when you air useless episodes like these. Honestly…

Naruto Shippuuden episode 415

Oh… Incredible… Does the madness never end? This episode was yet another one of many big slaps in my face. It’s been five to six months since the fillers began and the main story finally continued last week, and yet we’re already getting episodes like these.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 415 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.19_[2015.06.05_23.50.12]Yeah, Naruto took a beating now that the Nine Tails no longer resides within him. His dad tried to fix it, a predictable interception prevented that and now the former Tobi tried to take back part of the Nine Tails and plans on merging it with Naruto in another dimension. Sounds very exciting, that’s not the problem whatsoever.

My problem with it is that half of this episode was dedicated to flashback scenes. I don’t care about that characters’ past. I already knew what I saw so there was no need to waste air-time on that crap. Stop stalling and just focus on the main story already, dammit. It’s been five months; give us what we want already.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 414

Unbelievable. It’s been five months since those dreadful fillers started. Five months! That’s the longest period of fillers I’ve ever known in Naruto. Those sad morons are really trying to milk this thing to its fullest, aren’t they?

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 414 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.27_[2015.05.28_23.43.41]Let’s face it; the last movie came out, the manga ended (and fortunately a new one started) and now they are trying to prolong the series as long as they can. I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few months’ time they are going to give us even more fillers to milk this show even more. What a truly sad thing to see… Nothing but fillers for almost half a year…

And they left us at such a good part, too. That’s why they were sure that the fans would stick around. Naruto was dying, Sasuke was injured and Madara’s mission was going pretty well with him now absorbing the Ten Tails. Yes, he looked pretty cool after that, but hey… Naruto’s still the best. No exceptions.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 414 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.58_[2015.05.28_23.43.58]What pissed me off most about this episode is that we endured five months’ worth of fillers. Five boring months of useless Naruto Shippuuden episodes. Then we finally get to see the continuation of the latest great ninja war and we see the exact same mistakes that were made way before. I mean, Naruto’s father tries to give Naruto the other half of the Nina Tails so that he becomes even stronger, only to see Zetsu get in between to take that power for himself. How can you even make a mistake like that? It is petty crap like that that makes me want to stop watching sometimes…

Naruto Shippuuden episode 393

This is what happens when you make a nearly-unbeatable opponent even stronger. You up the drama, sure, but you make things extremely predictable as well. We all know that Naruto won’t die from this. It’ll just have to opposite effect.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 393 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.16_[2014.12.27_23.02.37]Madara really did a number on Naruto. His body was damaged to a point where his life is now in danger. This will undoubtedly result in a lot of drama where everyone will shed tears and do their best to make sure he doesn’t die, after which he will become better and rise stronger than ever. That is how these things always go down.

The high level of predictability has always been a problem, yet Naruto’s popularity continues to grow. People know something’s coming, but they just want to know what it is and how. I am pretty much the same. I needed to know how things would go down even though one could see it coming from a mile away. The only thing I want to know right now is after how many more episodes they plan to end this show.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 392

I didn’t have time to watch this week’s Amagi Brilliant Park episode, which is kind of killing me, but I, at the very least, have seen this week’s Naruto Shippuuden episode. It still had a few useless scenes in it, but I am happy to say that the fillers have once again ended.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 392 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.45_[2014.12.20_23.58.51]Long story short: Madara is hauling ass again. He has become fully human again in order to gain control over all of his power, which was not possible when he was undead. The thought of him getting even stronger is kind of ridiculous, but he just took the whole damn cake when he actually absorbed the first Hokage’s nature powers.

This guy is always on the hunt. This time he’s looking for new eyes and to once again enslave the Tailed Beasts in order to use that amazing Jutsu of his. The sad part is that he will obviously succeed. Naruto and his friends can’t do anything but be one step behind him at all times. The fact that Madara has become mortal again doesn’t really matter when you can’t even touch him.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 388

I am not sure if I am going crazy, but did I see a new OP? If so; I like it. It is very nice. The one thing that isn’t very nice is that they are obviously trying very hard to drag this out. They are filling the episodes with recaps and flashback scenes in order to gain the most out of this show.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 388 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.02_[2014.11.29_23.21.26]It pisses me off. Stop destroying the anime and just follow the manga. This episode was not in the manga. The manga had a decent ending that I could be satisfied with. There were no recaps. It was straight to the point. That is what I want to see from the anime. Just get to it already. Stop focussing on the past and focus on the matter at hand.

Why? Why focus on Gaara again? We have been over this until we were blew in the face. We know everything there is to know about Gaara. How he was as a boy, how he became host to the One Tail, Shukaku, how Naruto and he became friends… We know it. Stop focussing on things we have seen before and just show us what happens next!

Naruto Shippuuden episode 387

No Amagi Brilliant Park yet, so this post will have to do for today. I don’t understand why it’s so late. I can only hope that this was a one-time thing and that things will return back to “normal” next week. Short Naruto Shippuuden posts just won’t do.

[HorribleSubs] Naruto Shippuuden - 387 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.00_[2014.11.22_22.55.28]Another episode with a lot of flashback and recap scenes. Sure, there was a bit more progress than last week, but I cannot help but get a bit annoyed at those damned flashback scenes. Even more so when it’s about uninteresting characters. The manga ended weeks ago, so just get to it. Stop milking this golden cow and give this show the ending it deserves.

Anyway, Obito has been dealt with. He has been defeated and was left lying on the ground with a hole in his chest. I’ll try not to full this post with spoilers because I know that not everyone has been following the manga, but I would like nothing more than to see the remaining episodes without having to be bothered by flashback and recap scenes.
