Now I'm not saying all of Shippuden is bad because there are some good moments, but this wasn't as good as the original Naruto.
Firstly, the characters are arguably worse than before, especially the main characters. Naruto had barely changed when Shippuden started fighting wise. All that he was taught by Jiraiya was a bigger rasengan. Plus, now they bring up the whole prophecy thing where it was Naruto's destiny to have the life he has. It wasn't about working hard like he did before. I don't have much to say on Sasuke since we all know he got way stronger than Naruto in Post Time skip. Now where do I begin with Sakura? I WOW! It was going good at first like in the first arc where she helped Chiyo take down Sasori and it just went downhill after. She even lied to Naruto that she loved him just so he wouldn't save Sasuke. That's when I just hated her. I knew she was bad in the original but her character got worse from there. Then there's Kakashi who is just surrounded by plot holes. Has anyone noticed that he had his Mangekyo sharingan almost the entirety of the war, when in the Pain arc he was weak while using two lightning attacks AT THE SAME TIME? Did Kishimoto once again not know what he was doing? The other characters such as Shikamaru and Gaara are some of my favorites though (I miss Jiraiya btw :( ).
The biggest disappointment of this show however is the fourth great ninja war. It gotten awful pretty much when Obito started to become the villain. His whole reason for doing because of Rin was so stupid. Not to mention you have Neji, one of the best characters in the series, die. It just seems out of nowhere, idk probably just me thinking that. Madara was actually pretty good, but the only problem is Kishimoto said himself that he had no idea how to kill him off. Being a writer, you can't have these things happen or it weakens the story. Even when he does get killed, we still get another villain named Kaguya who again, was out of nowhere. Do I even want to mention how boring she was? It just seems Kishi threw her in there to stall more time. LIKE WE REALLY NEEDED ABOUT 50 CHAPTERS OF THIS TRASHY ARC!!!
And what's with all the fillers in Shippuden. Most of them seemed pointless anyways. But really, that's least of the show's problems to me. The whole last arc ruined Naruto to me and all because Kishimoto messed it up. But it's been a fun ride with the whole series and won't be forgotten. I just hate how it ended in a poor executed way. I'm still probably going to end up hating the live action movie that will come out, but if they do it based on this arc I wouldn't care. Plus, there's at least one good side to it ending. I can now catch up with One Piece.
Wow, you guys dissapointed me so hard, i am a huge fan of naruto and own the almost all Manga volumes, and what are you guys doing with my money... shit you guys are doing, fillers here fillers there, what's the point of doing these fillers????? I do understand that some are conclusing the characters but others just are made so that the fck Anime has more than 400 episode instead of 200 that the actuall plot has.... you guys wasted my time and i won't buy shit anymore for you guys so that you can waste it or get richer with it whatever. And I'm sure I'm not the only one who things like this maybe something like 50.000 people think the same or even more since Naruto has a big fanbase and you guys just want to dissapoint us and take our money.. it makes me rlly sad what happend to this show.. well waiting for the real last episode until then i won't even watch those ***ed fillers
PS: Masashi Kishimoto you should feel ashamed what you did with this amazing story and what you did to your fans who believed in you and in Naruto
I've been addicted to this show since day one. After going through REALLY grueling fillers, waiting for the Sasuke episodes, I managed through it. I was a child then! I had more patience. MANY MANY YEARS LATER, its extremely disheartening to be teased the same way! If you care about your fan base, stop doing torturing us! This is ridiculous and I'm seriously losing all hope in this anime. At the end of this episode, I literally said "are you freaking kidding me. More fillers??" I'm going to Japan soon, and I would love to see what Japanese viewers think of this crud. Obviously many of us are loyal viewers. Play the good stuff, not just throw fillers everywhere. I've seen a calculation of the fillers, it was over 65% of the anime. I wouldn't recommend this anime to anyone. It's too bad I'm still in the trap, hoping and wishing for better episodes. Screw you guys. I regret ever watching this show. It's like a cat trying to catch a laser dot. Eventually we get bored, and I'm way passed that stage!!
I would honestly not not consider myself an anime fan, but just a Naruto fan. I can remember when the show first aired in the US back in 2005 on Toonami when I was 8 years old. I thought it was the greatest thing ever; it was instantly a huge part of my life, I was a faithful viewer watching a new episode each week on a Saturday night (when I was suppose to be in bed). I don't remember when, but it went off the air from Toonami and I was distraught. I was very young I had no idea how to find it. So then it was gone, but then I rediscovered it in 2010 to learn that Naruto Shippuden had started. Naruto Shippuden had already been airing since 2007 so I had a lot of catching up to do. My whole summer that year consisted of rewatching the whole first Naruto series and then catch up to the current episode of Shippuden. It is now 2015 and I am 17 years old. It has been almost 10 years and I am still in love with Naruto. When I watched The Last: Naruto the Movie it was so nostalgic that I honestly cried man tears. This show is a way of life, with the good times(canon) and yes the bad times(filler).
I have a New character that could go in this . show and he is Naruto long lost cousin from the cloud village and you can add a demon that inside him is call ten tailed fox and his name is called Daruto Uzumaki and his daddy was naruto's father older brother and his mother was tenten father's sister.
Once upon a time this anime was good when it actually had a plot. Even at the beginning you see it's an obvious copy of DragonBall Z. The sad part is they copied one of the greatest anime in history and still managed to ruin it. Fillers have nothing to do with this. This anime is filled with contradictions and broken laws they establish themselves. The story is terrible, he gets free power constantly without training, even if he does train he masters a jutsu it takes 50 years to learn in the course of a month, which it doesn't matter how talented you are, if one of the most gifted and strongest people in the world took 50 years, there's no reason it should be a month for naruto. Note that this isnt even a big deal. I used to think bleach fucked up, with all its fillers and such, but naruto took that failure and stepped it up to a point where i lost all hope for this anime, this writer, and these producers, its pathetic. You take what could be a very good story and violate it. This anime is made for children between the ages of 10 - 15, the ones that don't understand plot yet.
Ok hey guy! Imma a HUGE fan of Naruto!!! (And Bleac,Fairy tail,and One never knew it was going to start going up everyone gets stronger,smarter,and more favorite character is Neji he dies later I love how they made it look like a bit of reality when some people wasit Kasuma or Asuma?Well one of them dies and then Neji always get confised with Asuma and . >.
hiii , guys i am form india, i like naruto series ,i am a huge fan of it, every child in his dreams thing that he have powers like naruto ,wowwww ,i love watching it,when he fights in series ,i enjoy as a second hand fun , uuu japans are really good at creating like this mangas ,who every he is i thank him for such a manga ,this series is legendary, like this series never comes or came before, but series is too big ,i grow form 12 years old to 20 yrs old ,hahahahaha
I gotta say, the anime makers chose the best way to ruin the anime by keep on going with fillers, whenever they feel like it. I am really disappointed. 4/5 for actual episodes and 0 for all the fillers, which are almost 50% of total episodes.
I Didn't Ever Imagine That The Anime Will Go This Way. The Writer Masashi Is Awesome As He Wrote This Story. Man This Show Has Every Types Of Genres. I Never Expected This. You Should Watch This..........
Naruto is a really good show and my favorite is Neji, and Yagura. Show has really good fighting and good powers to use. The little hard thing is trying to remember a lot of important details the things cause it will be some how important further more into series. But this show is really good and i really like the Water Release Jutsus they made
i had watch hundreds of anime till the ending but naruto is now becoming a dissapointment. there were so many fillers and the non fillers is composed of flashbacks that doesnt move the story forward or help to understand the plot better. it is just there to lengthen the life of anime. having watch the anime for 10 years the anime owe its fans a good ending . i kind of know what the anime is aiming at- they will be re-airing shippuden at a more concise form after it has ended. just like full metal achemist to full metal alchemist brotherhood. ill not rate it as a whole but rate it by the show they had created from august 2012 to august 2013. gundam series is a 7 for me by that standard ill give shippuden a 2.5
Does anyone know why they continue to make naruto shippuden fillers? I'm asking because there's a great amount of hate towards watching the fillers in most comment's I see towards the anime. Sometime's there's interesting filler's though most of the time there boring, so why so many filler's if fan's don't like them? I know the fillers are there to keep the anime away from the manga, but there's that question that keep's popping up, why do they keep making them? Why not go on hiatus instead of soiling what naruto used to be back in the day. If your reading this I don't care about the rating I just want know if you know why the people who make the show are doing what their doing, which is making all these fillers?
I'm really hating the fillers. There has only been 1 filler that I have ever liked and that was the Guren (Crystal User) Filler. It didn't go with the story but it was still pretty cool to watch. But the other fillers are pretty much all boring cr*p that causes people to not even want to watch the show anymore. And I was so excited to see that the fillers are finally gonna be done but now guess what, a week is being taken off. Why not just take a few months off instead of giving us these nasty fillers? I'd rather not be wondering if it's finally story or filler in the next weeks episode. These War Fillers are the absolute worst. Adding background stories for characters that don't even exist or adding horrible background stories to actual characters. (BTW My rating is for the actual story, not the fillers)
i have watched naruto shippden from a long time and i only have one thing to say about this show it amazing it has an amazing story and it keeps on getting better and better i know there are alot of fillers but all animas do that does not make it a bad show this show has a twisted story and i think its an anime you must watch i love this anime i love its story line there is not an anime that can be as great as this anime the manga is really nice to ,i used to watch this anime dubbed but i stopped subbed is better and cause dubbeb it takes for ever to air online so prefer subbed ,trust me this show is worth watching and dont forget people who dident watch naruto then they shouldent watch naruto shippden cause they wont undertsand anything cause naruto shippden is like another season of naruto but it were the real story line and story really starts to take plaace it when u watch it you will understand watch this anime its the best
Been watching Naruto since it came on Toonami. I must say I'm a Narutard. I prefer it subbed and it's great as a whole. Though I do have to saw the filler and flashbacks are annoying. Naruto will forever be the best anime ever. It's got good humor, awesome fight scenes, and interesting philosophies that make you think.
