Yay! It’s Naruto Shippuuden time! Who’ll join me in my jump off a very high bridge? It’s fillers like these that turn people into murderers. I, too, got the urge to pick up an axe, put on working gloves and find the nearest police station for a good ol’ killing spree.
I’m not going to let myself get aggravated by this any further. I am therefor stopping my Naruto Shippuuden reviews until the main story picks up again, which should be in about five to six weeks from now. Eight to nine weeks of fillers, even though we endured quite a few already this year… Why? Why must thy torment us so.
Also, I’m skipping the fillers because the stories are dropping in quality. I actually skipped through this episode after watching three minutes of it. I get really bored and I simply couldn’t take much more of this. Too bad…Read More
Great, another series of fillers… Just what I’ve been waiting for. Obvious sarcasm aside, what about the rest? Are we going to get more of these worthless side stories? It’s bad enough that they’re trying to squeeze in more comedy than usual during times of war…
I know I’m badmouthing Naruto Shippuuden a lot lately (because they deserve it right now), but even I must admit that this episode was a bit better than the last few. It had a new, interesting character that kept us entertained for a few minutes. Sure, we went back to the past again, but at least we’ve met an interesting character.
I don’t know how many more fillers we will have to endure, but it’s almost guaranteed that the next two or three episodes are going to be fillers. Watch, we have to endure quite a few fillers right now, after which the main story picks up again for about six to nine weeks, until a new batch of fillers air. You’ll see…Read More
Why? Why do you give us more fillers at this point? Why are we forced to watch this crap when we’ve just had to watch a few months’ worth of fillers? The manga is so far ahead, yet next week it’s going to be another filler. The week after that probably too.
At least this week’s battle ended. That undead proctor and his two henchmen got sealed pretty quickly. That means that Kabuto will have to look elsewhere for strong pawns. Not that it matters, that guy needs to be taken care of soon. His Justsu complicates things for the Allied Shinobi Force. It makes their job, which is already impossible to begin with, even harder.
There’s only one thing that keeps my spirit up at this point; I want to see the confrontation between Itachi and Sasuke. A warm deadly brotherly moment where the one tells the other about what happened. I’m not a huge fan of looking back at the past, but I’m definitely interesting in seeing that.Read More
This is going to be a tough one. Not because I’m having trouble deciding if it was good or not, because I already came to the conclusion that it wasn’t, but because I’m having a hard time deciding if I’m supposed to call this episode yet another filler or if it contained some value.
I’m slightly feverish and I feel as though I’m about to crap my awesome username in full, so I’m going to keep this short and simple; I am not satisfied. I’m a big fan of watching a few scenes of a character’s past, but they have to have value, they must have something to do with the future. Why would I care about how that nameless proctor died during the early Naruto episodes?
It’s not that it didn’t have any value, it just seems like more of a side story. Having an undead proctor and a few other puppets steal elite Shinobi’s dead bodies would be okay for a regular filler, because we all know what Kabuto is going to do with those bodies, but it seems kind of lame right now. We only recently endured quite a few fillers, so what the hell? I’m very doubtful about next week’s episode…Read More
Naruto Shippuuden time… Oh wait, not it’s not. It’s filler time! Sure, why not get a kick in the family jewels. It happens to all of us every now and then. Too bad it happens too much in Naruto Shippuuden. It really lowers the overall standard.
Forget about watching a good, action-filled episode. Why not watch a crappy flashback episode instead? Why not watch as the once super-shy Hinata made her way through a world of violence? Yeah… Boring! I couldn’t even stay focussed. I actually had to skip a few minutes so that it would end sooner.
This was a kick in the balls because we had to endure many fillers until a few weeks ago. Having them air another batch of them this soon is just unacceptable, so I hope that next week’s episode will be focussed on the war once more.Read More
Okay, just finished watching and I must say that I’m pleasantly surprised. I must admit that I wasn’t expecting much, and that there was a possibility of me being bored while watching this episode. But no, it turned out better than I had expected.
The first part was a bit boring, I’ll say that much. Shikamaru and his team kept antagonizing those four idiots in order to make them angrier, hoping that Naruto, whom has obtained the ability to sense evil things, would pick up on that and rescue them. That’s fine and all, but why focus even more on those four? Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t care about the promises they made with Orochimari or how they were there during the attack on the Hidden Leaf village. I look at the present and the future, I only look at the past when it influences the future. It’s just a waste of my time. Perhaps that’s why I never really liked history, even in school?
I also noticed how Shikamaru’s father was filling to sacrifice those four, one of them being his own son, for the greater good. They are warriors, so it’s not unnatural for them to die in battle, huh? That is what separates Naruto from the rest of the flock. Naruto does not abandon people, ever. He’ll continue to fight to keep himself and all of his loved ones save, which is why I think that he’d make one hell of a leader.
Anyway, Naruto soon came rushing to their aid with Rasengan in hand. It took him very little to no effort to break through, ensure the safety of his friends and get rid of those four freaks. Did you noticed how easily Naruto disposed of them, when Shikamaru and the rest couldn’t even scratch them after their power-up? I like that.Read More
I’m so glad that I didn’t get all hyped up all over this one episode. It turned out like I imagined; very, very average. Things always get a little bit stagnant before a good battle. Gives the animators a bit of breathing room to give the manga more time to get ahead, I think.
I knew that things were going to go sour as soon as Shikamaru and his friends engaged those guys in battle. No good could’ve come from it, especially since Kabuto is the grand puppet master behind it all. Everyone knows how much of a schemer he is. I must admit that I was rather disappointed in Shikamaru. He should’ve known that there was more going on than just a nostalgic meet and greet with some of the opponents they’ve defeated in the early days. I thought for sure that he of all people would’ve saw through the ruse, but no… He, too, got teleported inside of that barrier.
I’m also rather disappointed that Naruto hasn’t made it yet. I thought for sure that he arrived already in order to stop (some of) this madness. At least his clones are being useful by eliminating the remaining few of Zetsu’s clones. You can’t fight a war when you have to worry about the people behind you, right?
I suppose we have to wait and see how Shikamaru will get himself and his friends outside of that barrier without getting killed by one of those undead maniacs or their pets. It’ll be an interesting little game of dodge, think and dodge a little bit more.Read More
I don’t like this. I don’t like it when they bring back previous characters that didn’t really contribute that much to the story. In a way they may have, but there existence has been long forgotten by many until this very episode.
At first I was getting nerves when I saw White Zetsu again. I thought that we were back to where we started; a ridiculous fest where Zetsu tries to kill as many Shinobi as he can. What’s the point? The real damage has already been done; everyone is weary of one another. Great mental damage has been inflicted. Why spike the ball?
But no, it wasn’t about that, not entirely. It was about the freaky foursome that kidnapped Sasuke on Orochimaru’s behalf back when Naruto wasn’t as popular as now. I wasn’t exactly exited to see these four blasts from the past. I never liked these characters and their skills to begin with. They fight with borrowed power, so that’s a no-no for as far as I’m concerned.
However, it soon turned into this evaluation where these four undead warriors took on the same four Shinobi that killed them. You would think that it would be over pretty quickly when they fight against much stronger versions of the ones that defeated them in the first place. That’s why I was a bit surprised to see that there was quite a struggle at first.
I guess the time and place is different, huh? Those four were defeated again, but they didn’t die because of their immortal bodies. Rather, they were just diversion. Their real aim was to transport the strongest Shinobi around to another location and (probably) finish them off in order to weaken the foe’s attack force. It’s a cunning plan, I agree, but overall pretty interesting. You could say that that was the only interesting thing about this particular episode.Read More
