Since i watched this little filler arc - mainly because of the good animation - i was hoping for a good finale. But damn, the finale was complete bullshit. And i don't think i have to explain in detail why to all those who took their time to watch it. It's enough to say that most of the characters were behaving like complete retards, even those who were supposed to be smart, like Kakashi, Yamato and Kabuto. The other big disappointment is that they used this half-assed kyuubi mode instead of sage mode. Sage mode is supposed to give great power to the user, clearly stated by Shikamaru's father and others, but here it seemed like it was completely useless in the finale. So instead of showing how cool sage mode can be in case Naruto actually uses his brain - which he did against Pain - they just wrote a story where Naruto is s complete retard whose only source of power is to just use kyuubi's huge chakra and punch the enemy while screaming like an idiot. I can't believe they wasted good animation quality on this shit story instead of using it in epic places like the Pain invasion of Konoha. I bet 90% of the people on this forum could have written a better finale than this.

I actually liked the finale.

Especially the animation when Naruto went into SSJ mode.

Watching the preview for next week actually shows the great animation quality we got for the filler arc.

Oh well, hopefully the war turns out to be epic.

So far it's been pretty boring.

It would have been funny if Naruto entered sage mode when the black girl (Karui?) was beating him up and no matter how hard she was hitting there woldn't be a scratch on Naruto Too bad the author needed a different outcome there for the sake of story progression. Naruto could have used it also against Kisame since Kisame is a chakra sucking guy, too bad Kisame was reserved for Gai. So it was a good idea from the anime team to use some sage action before the war begins. As usual in the filler and also in the movies the plot is somewhat boring but the great animation makes you forget that.
False, he used sage mode several time so far during the war arc

Most notable was in his fight against the previous Raikage

As for this whole "filler", heck more of an OVA/Movie they decided not release till this 500 episode celebration, overall:

I enjoyed it, some people are expecting waaayyy too much from something like this, these types of things are just here to be cool and fun to watch while in no way having much to relate to the story (thats what the main series and all the years of building it up is for)

This is an anime-only thread, you better put it into spoiler tags or delete it...

And you are wrong, Naruto used sage mode against Pain, but after that we almost never see it, and now i'm talking about the anime only, since i can't write about the manga here. When Karui beats him up he doesn't use it, when he faces Sasuke he doesn't use it (he goes into sage mode a few times but never actually makes use of it), when Tobi pops out of nowhere he doesn't even turn it on while listening to Tobi's little speech, of course if he did that he would be able to sense Sasuke's presence at the kage meeting, when he wants to break out of the alliance's hidden place he ends up using kyuubi mode (he again enters sage mode for a brief moment but doesn't use it to break out of the shadow binding jutsu), and finally when he faces the Raikage he uses kyuubi mode again. The only time he uses his sage mode to make a difference is when he fights the kyuubi, but that all happens inside his mind so it's not even a real fight.

The anime gets back to the war next week finally!

The last manga chapter animated was chapter 544, so we get 19 chapters of manga into maybe 10 good anime episodes, then I don't know how long till it gets good again since the manga has been duller than the early war parts since.

I don't read the manga.

But with the seemingly slooooow pace of the War Arc (before the mini movie-esque filler) I would have thought the manga would be way ahead of the anime.

About the last episode of Chikara looking really rushed and having a bunch of holes: according to the last post on the Pierrot blog, a part of it was cut to fit the TV format. The missing parts will apparently be present on the DVD release.

It was obvious enough that something was missing from the episode, but it's nice to have confirmation. This also seems to confirm the theory that Chikara was going to be last year's movie before the studio had the chance to get Kishimoto involved.

so we are back to the war arc. YAY!

Gaara vs his pops next week, remember enjoying it in the manga, excited for how they pull it all off in the anime.

Naruto owning the white zetsu and co. was well done, very enjoyable.

News from the battlefront.
That was sort of not bad.
It summarizes things rather nicely.
Watching Naruto fight was nice too.
It's been a while since we had a chance to see it.
Gaara and sand guys started their own fight a well

Wasn't it a problem for him to stay in his bijuu form for too long? Since he's been in it nonstop since he left to get to the front lines?

I did like his new ways of using the rasengan.

The filler arc wasn't that bad. One of the best actually.

Just the kids, OMG so annoying. Way too much focus on the kids.

Too bad that the animation quality is back to average. They gave excellent animation to some crap filler story and then when the real things comes the animation quality drops. They should have used slow motions sequences for great action instead of going the cheap way. It seems that the management of the anime team is as bad as the managements of japanese electronic giants like sony and panasonic and then they later wonder how the korean giants like samsung and lg beat them in competition

i think the animation was above average for this latest episode. it wasn't that slick style that they had in the recent filler, but i liked how they animated KM naruto a lot. even the slick style gets complaints. that episode with 6tails naruto fighting pain was in that style and most people hated it. i'm sure they will break it out for some of the more momentous fights to come in this war. right now is the perfect time to keep it simple, but quality nonetheless. certainly not as bad as when darui fought the gold and silver brothers... that animation was piss poor, but so was the story so i cant really fault them

Iíd say the animation in that darui episode is acceptable and certainly not poor. IMO the thing that killed the episode was the drab score. I mean, seriously, the score in that episode is one of soulless ones Iíve encounter. In fact, the score of the overall Shippuuden has been a big fail to make some scene moving (be it sad, funny,menacing, energetic, etc) for me. God, I miss the old Narutoís score. Replacing all the score from the Naruto when they made Shippuuden is a really bad idea. I mean, canít they just keep and use some of the old score for F sake?

Whereas the score for Fairy Tail (same composer if I'm not mistaken) is getting better and better.

I couldn't agree more. Part 1 had a lot of great battle themes. And part of what made them so good IMO were how unique they sounded. Part 2 has (I think) one score I like so far, and it's a remix of a part 1 theme no less. I feel like one of the main problems is that a lot scores sound very similar in general. That's to say most of the tracks have this dark, serious, and dramatic tone to it. It's like listening to tracks from the Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations games. On the other hand, Part 1 had scores to suit a variety of moods during a battle. So it was more fun to listen to.
