"Curry of Life" was god awful yes but you really can't top the "Search for the Bikōchū" one.

The team guy clones episode is boring I'll give you that but the infamous year-long filler of the original Naruto is an exercise in how not to make anime of any kind. I'm still surprised that the show didn't get cancelled during that hell.

Some of them should be able to perform some ninja techniques, even if it's only some exploding tags. They attacked the bad guys like a bunch of idiots would do, one would expect them to be smarter, so if they lack raw power and jutsu then let them be smart. The bad guys were also a bunch of morons, instead of being real missing nins and other real criminals who try to take advantage of the war.
It was sexist. But that is a values dissonance with Japan. What was just lazy though was forgetting that Shikamaru's mom is a NINJA! She is a chunnin. Why have her fight with a frying pan?

It could have been cool to see a group of rogue ninja/bandits use the war to take over Konoha. And the women could have shown great strength overcoming the invaders. But instead we got another "Will of Fire" lesson for stupid Konohamaru.

Naruto was never in danger of being canceled like Bleach. The great mystery of Naruto filler is it gets the same ratings as canon. The year long filler of Part 1 maintained the show's ratings. Shippuden filler arcs get similar ratings to Shippuden canon arcs. These three war filler episodes will get similar rating to canon.

Complaining about filler is a Western thing. The audience for the anime skews younger in Japan. As long as it is on, they watch it. If Naruto's ratings suffer, it is because kids are losing interest. Not because of filler.

Exactly, they could have made about 4 episodes if they had a good story for this. Somewhere in the episode the moms say that they protected the village in past wars too, so they could have included some flashbacks where we can see both Naruto's and Sasuke's moms defending a village against some random criminals, a "girl power" episode. We could also see the younger version of Shikamaru's mom, some comedy about how frightening she was, according to Shikaku, have Shikaku a moment of thinking about what advice his wife would give him in his current situation where it seems there's no hope, thus connecting the main story line with this filler story. Make justice for Kurenai, since we never saw her kick ass with her genjutsu because her first opponent was Itachi, but when not faced with a genjutsu-god she should be quite strong. And also genjutsu is the type of jutsu that can be used even when pregnant, if the others protect her physically. And then there are the 2 elders, they are supposed to be elite ninja, even if not as strong as Chiyo was at old age, but they should be able to do some damage.

What was really annoying is that this idea had such a great potential but it was completely ruined with crap story. And also they wasted some good quality animation on this episode, i hope the next canon episodes will not be lower budget because of this.

Psh. All those moms needed to get their fat asses back in the kitchen.

Just kidding. Yeah, I thought it was sexist, too. Fighting with kitchen implements.... it was retarded. It was physically painful to watch. I only perservered because Konohamaru was in it.

And also, just for the record, WTF is up with Sakura's mom? Sakura and her mother look NOTHING alike in a series that prides itself on uncanny familial resemblences. Maybe Sakura is actually a bastard child of the Uzumaki clan or something, with that pink hair she's got going.

If they really have to make fillers. I would rather have several episodes of this, instead of the fillers they are giving us.

Naruto & Bee vs Tsunade & Bee's brother!
Never thought I'd see that.
Flashbacks were pretty interesting this time.
The Bee filler was good.

There was no filler in this episode it was all from the manga.

I was very pleasntly surprised myself I can't remember the last time over 2 chapters was put in a single episode.

Also after a year of shit openings we finally have one worth watching

It's still ongoing in the manga.

And yes, it does. When it ends, it's likely Naruto will end (goddamn finally).

What are you asking? The current episode number or the number of the last episode? As for the first part, the most recent episode is Episode 282 "The Secret Origin of the Ultimate Tag Team!". As for the second part...well the manga hasn't ended so there is no way to know when the anime will end (Shippuden is not like Bleach, it will not simply end because one part of an arc is over). So, you can expect episodes until at least next summer, potentially longer.

It was the first part. Thank you James.

Tsunade was not really into fighting Naruto.
Raikage on the other hand had no problem fighting him.
Some more flashbacks about Bee's past again.
Just too much stalling...
Quality of Naruto anime has seriously fallen.
Seems like I'm still watching it out of habit or just pure hope.

And that's the end of manga material for the next 2 weeks as filler returns so tune in for proper Naruto on 1st of November.

It is not like they have great material to work with.

Let's be honest. No matter the quality of the anime, if Kishimoto were putting out gold with the big war arc, fans would still be excited to see it animated.

he is using the real corpses. Pain's puppet technique uses corpses from dead people.
