Darn. The episode with Gaara could've been better.
Though Gaara looked clearly like Magneto (part 2, escape scene) which was alright...

Regrettable since Gaara is one of my favorite characters.

These fillers are actually very well done. I enjoy them for the first time in Naruto filler history.

Lol, that's the point of showing such clips, so we perverts would think of that. The animators are doing it on purpose anyway

Hey, I actually liked this episode's original content more than I did the canon part. Pleasantly surprised.

So basically no one really knows when this is going to end.

I wouldn´t mind fillers, if they were actually good. But those last filler episodes were medicore at best (I admit it has it´s moments, but those are clearly overshadowed by the lackluster effort put in by the animation team to make an interesting story)

One Piece fillers don´t really have any real big story twists either, but thankfully, Once Piece knows how to play the serious/comedy cards and seeing the interaction of the crew as well as others is allways a blast.

Why can´t they show an awesome Gaara filler arc were you see how he became Kazekage, not just some puny half episode appearance.
You are a freaking killing machine and we all said you´re a bloodthirsty monster and shunned you like satan himself, but hey, past is past, be our Kazekage now...is that seriously how it went?
Or give us some missions with other Konoha Teams, with fights, REAL FIGHTS. I mean, I like some side stories, "social interactions" and comedy moments, but I watch Naruto mainly for the ninja/jutsus/war setting, means fights.
When will TenTen, Neiji, Rock Lee, Chouji, Ino, etc. get a badass fight again? They have some pretty awesome jutsus and fighting styles...so where are they?

That´s the problem with the Naruto fillers. Again, sorry for mentioning OP, but at least some fillers focus on Vivi, the marines or some other people they met, foe or allies alike.

Seriously, why are there no fillers about Akatsuki members? Kakuzu´s happy Bountyhuntin' or the fight Sasori vs. The third Kazekage?
We got what, 5 flashbacks for Nagato/Pain, but none about Hidan, Kakuzu?
More about Deidara´s past would´ve been nice too, not just his recruiting scene for about two times.

In Naruto it´s allmost all the time Naruto/Sasuke. There are so many freaking characters in Naruto, dead or alive, why the heck aren´t they shown? Gaara is as popular, no even more popular than Sasuke and Naruto together (mainly because of his voice actor) so that can´t be their excuse that people wouldn´t like seeing other, more interesting characters.

And for those who say, just don´t watch it, yeah, I´m trying to do that, but it would be nice to know, when the fillers are going to end, so I don´t have to search up every week if it´s a filler or not, if there´s some canon in it or not.

^ I think the filler is limited to what it can do. For instance, they have showed filler about the jinchūriki. But they never have showed an Akatsuki filler. I would love to see filler with the Jashin cult, but they won't touch that. Naruto will always be part of every filler episode, even though everyone would agree that it would be cooler to see the teams on their own doing interesting missions.

Gaara isn't as popular as Naruto or Sasuke. He never even cracked the top 5 in the popularity polls.

As for this episode, it depends on how much you like Gaara, since it was all about him. I was looking forward to Temari reacting about Konoha and she was only in the episode for a brief moment and wasn't needed at all. Poor Romi Park had one line. So that was really disappointing. I was hoping for another repeat of the last filler arc of Part 1 where all the Sand Sibslings did something, but nope.

Next episode should appease the NaruSaku fans.

1) Because it could contradict canon.
2) Because every filler arc must have Naruto in it.

OP also has Luffy in its fillers all the time. The reason you don't mind is probably because Luffy and his crew are a much more enjoyable bunch than Naruto/Sakura/Sai. Including other teams is fine and they've done it in the past.

By the way, there are canon parts mixed in with the filler -every- week. The fillers are expected to last through November, I believe.

Well it continues. Think the best part of the episodes are the poll options for 000 - 010 . Nice to get some Gaara attention even if it wasn't that good of an episode.

The episode was good, the only thing what bothers me is the way everyone is treating Naruto. I don't hate Sakura but the way she is acting towards Naruto is weird, she shows more respect towards Gaara the guy who tried to kill her and yet she treat Naruto bad (the guy who saved her life). Animators did bad job with this, I still didn't see a filler where Naruto isn't acting like an idiot. Anyway if anyone want's to discuss their filler experiences, you can check this thread out.

^ Sakura is a twisted version of tsundere for Naruto, I say twisted because only the first half of it applies in this series As with most anime, Kishi plays his romance safe without making clear pairings (in blatant contrast with Bakuman, for example).
As for the fillers, I finally mustered enough interest to watch this episode...gotta say they got some good ideas, but iunno, it was boring not as exciting as I was expecting it to be. Btw, cramming the intro at 9 freakin minutes or something is really bad, they had done it with Sign too a few times and god, I hated it...(not the song, the half-episode OP thing).
