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
Yeah… No thank you. This totally isn’t my thing. A princess is chosen every few years to wield a special weapon, only to find out that for the first time a guy gets chosen to wield the aforementioned weapon. Sounds pretty cheap and uninteresting if you ask me…
The artwork isn’t really that bad if you look at the big picture. Sure, that weapon, the Hayagami, looks like it could use a touch up. Let’s face it; it looks cheap and unimpressive. It’s like a dagger. At least make it bigger and scary-looking, as to give the impression that it’s really powerful.
I have to say that the story didn’t really spark my interest. It sounds very farfetched, cheap and boring. A high school teenager gets teleported to another world where he gets to wield this impressive weapon? Come on… There are hundreds of these stories already…
I’m afraid I can’t really recommend this. No doubt that fantasy lovers will end up watching this anyway, but I for one will have to wait and see what happens next. The first episode didn’t leave that big an impression, so that’s why I’ll wait until the second episode comes before I decide if I want to watch this or not.
Plot Summary: Every 30 years, a new princess is chosen from the Hime family to serve the Hayagami. The time has come again, but over these past years, records state not a single female has been born, save for one, the 15-year-old Arata. The only problem is, Arata is actually a male! Forced to disguise himself and take the place of the princess candidate until a formal one can be found, he attends the festival only to witness the current princess, Kokuri-hime, murdered, and his own life is forfeit as well, by the hands of the princess’ personal guard, the 12 Shinshou. As he runs for his life, Kannagi of the 12 convinces everyone that Arata is the one who has murdered the princess instead, and now everyone in the Imperial Court is after his head!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
