Naruto Shippuuden episode 344
Colour me impressed. Naruto Shippuuden is still continuing its amazing run and there’s still no signs of fillers. That makes me both happy and nervous. I know that we can expect a lot of fillers soon, that much is certain. The anime is rapidly catching up to the manga, we all know what that means.
It was kind of funny to see that Madara’s plans didn’t go quite as he has hoped. It was less funny when I started thinking about the damage he did even though his plans didn’t fully come into fulfilment (yet). The guy is so strong that he actually took out all of the Kage’s on his own without even breaking a sweat. The thought that he’s going to get stronger when he gets a body of his own is simply unthinkable. There’s no way that Naruto, Bee, Kakashi and Guy are stronger than Kage’s that Madara defeated. I certainly don’t want to see another sudden power-up. Those explanations are usually quite lousy.
I liked the part about Obito’s past. Mainly because I got to see an old and somewhat fragile Madara. I hope they are going to explain in detail how Madara got to live so long. They already told us quite a lot a few weeks ago but it’s not nearly enough. I still haven’t heard a reasonable explanation as to how Madara got to be so old.
I’ll end things here for now. I know that the next episode is still going to be a regular episode, but it’ll be any day now that we’re going to get a few months’ worth of fillers. I just want to catch a glimpse of Naruto’s new-found power after he became friends with the Nine Tails before those fillers start. Surely that can’t be too much to ask?
