    Well, I'm seeing why folks have a hard time getting into Shippuden. It's taken four episodes since Itachi and Kisame's defeat for the heroes to get to Gaara. Not a lot has happened, some of it feels sedated and some of it is just funny. On the whole, it's not good though. I think we were doing well until just after episode 15.

    My sister was laughing hysterically when Kakashi told Sakura and the old lady to take care of Sasori while Naruto and Kakashi went off to take care of the guy with one arm. "They're so screwed!"

    Seems fine to me.

    Looking forward to the upcoming uncut boxset in August.

    Well, it was pointed out, "Look, they took a whole episode with these characters just talking about the door. It took them the whole episode to get through it." But now that I've seen the first couple of episodes with Sasori, it's gotten better. There was some pretty fluent animation coming from the clone fights, which surprised me. Sakura also makes a pretty funny Bi**h please" smirk after dodging all those needles. It should be noted that the laughter when my sister heard bosch's voice as Sasori was palpable.

    Even so, the episode was still nicely buffered with Akatsuki conversation.

    And yeah, it was a real switch to hear Johnny Yong Bosch as Sasori. lol

    Yeah, it is a good fit - exactly how i heard it while reading. ACtually, everyone in the Akatsuki is so deep with their voices that it makes it so hard to distinguish between them...except for "LEADER", who's voice is so evil that it is hilarious. And maybe one of the zetsu's...who sounds like Snake.

    I do like the voice choices, especially the new one for 'Leader.'

    They mostly sound really deep now due to the 'radio effect' the jutsu they use for the holograms has.

    They'll probably be a lot easier to distinguish when they're not holograms.

    thanks ghost face for the "leader" - I nearly lost my place here.

    Well, I've seen the last five episodes of the second boss set. It ends with Sakura getting stabbed - a bit of a twist followed by a "Why?"

    It's nice to see Sakura get some props. Also, there's a line where Sasori is deducing what happened to his poison, and when he does, he gets really really sinister in his voice. It's chilling how evil how sounds for that single moment.

    And of course, the hundred puppet fight looked fantastic. I'm so glad it turned out so well. It's a relief to finally see it - just cause it's been so long since i've seen a well-animated fight. Sasuke versus Naruto was the last one, realistically, and I don't remember when that was last on tv.

    The boxset ends in a bad place though.

    I reread the 100 puppet fight, boy the anime really knocked this one out of the park. It made it feel more active. I'm going to go back and review the whole manga fight again for comparison's sake.

    No one's watching the dub? We don't get any responses here. At the very least, I usually have comments on the acting.

    Well I watch the dub sometimes but I really don't like it... Something about Naruto's voice drives me up the wall....

    I'm not really watching the edited version.

    I am watching the uncut dubbed episodes. [My favorite format for just about any anime]

    I agree regarding the Sasori fight.

    Sakura is one of my favorite characters, so I loved seeing her performance in this particular fight.

    The second boxset ended on a really dark cliffhanger. Am currently awaiting the release of the third boxset.

    Indeed, and it comes out in August? Oi. It seems that after they release three dvd sets, they release two more before putting the old three in a boxset.

    I am suprised that no one is posting in this thread no more I just for the first time watched the Disney XD version I don't have the channel and my computer doesn't have sound either and I thought the new episode was funny at the part where Sakura got mad at Naruto for saying bad stuff about Sai but I also wonder if well just my theory that is Sai's older brother is Orochimaru but just a theory but not too bad but I wonder why the credits are different then the one on Cartoon Network.

    I'm stuck waiting for boxsets...so I'm behind, otherwise you'd all have my reviews.

    But good lord, episode 24 is quite awful. Unwatchable really.

    Really? I thought that was a good episode in the fight. On another note, boxset 3 is out and the 4th will be out this October.

    Now, I'm less sure. it's the one where the clones are fighting, but this time...IT'S REALLY BAD. Guy fighting guy for a minute on a 7 second loop...that kind of stuff. Sakura dodging non-threatening black boxes. It's too bad this arc was a dud in the anime, cause I couldn't stop readin' back in the day.

    Personally, I liked the action. Pretty good stuff. [BTW, those boxes would crush anyone else]

    Especially the end where Sakura breaks the 3rd Kazekage [a pivotal moment in the entire fight for her].

    BTW, I'm watching uncut boxset 3 and I'm remembering how Sai used to crack me up. XD

    I haven't picked it up yet. I'm sort of taking my time getting around to it, cause I know there'll be a bit of downtime before I get to watch the next set. I'll probably pick it up in september.

    I think my favorite part from the last boxset (besides the awesome fight) is when Sasori is trying to figure out why Sakura hasn't died. Bosch really blended evil with frustration to create something genuinely creepy and different from what he normally does. "of course...SHE DID IT!" Holy crap I was laughing - but not because it was funny.
