Naruto Shippuuden episode 257

What the hell is this? We have just had months’ worth of episodes that were nothing but ridiculous fillers, allowing the manga to get ahead. That being said, can someone explain to my why, just as the war is starting, we are unpleasantly surprised by an episode that showed us nothing more than recaps from previous episodes? Does your shamelessness know no bounds? Isn’t it bad enough that you brought NarutoSD into the world, but now this as well?

I’ll keep this post short and to the point. It contains nothing but recaps, recaps that we’ve seen a lot of times over these past few months. I already know how Naruto and Sasuke became friends, I know how they used to train and compete, so why are you showing me this now, when instead you could be showing me a lot of new and amazing stuff? I really don’t get it, I’m sorry. Last week’s episode was new, refreshing and intriguing. This week has been nothing but a bitter disappointment on the Naruto flank. First they shove NarutoSD in our faces, a gag anime whose future is very much uncertain, and now this? Isn’t it bad enough that NarutoSD took Bleach’s old timeslot?

So yeah, it’s pretty freakin’ obvious that I’m bitterly disappointed. We had just passed the point where we had nothing but fillers, only to be surprised by yet another worthless episode that contributes nothing to the story. I have been thinking about it for some time now, but I really can’t see the angle. How this does benefit them? The manga is way ahead, so that’s not the problem. Why now?

Sigh, I’ve already lost interest in NarutoSD after the first 10 minutes, but don’t let me lose any more interest in Naruto Shippuuden, please! I have seen next week’s preview and it seems that we can expect yet another recap-episode. Looking forward to next week? Hell no.
