Episode 8-9 Summary, if a mod could move it to the new thread whenever it's created that'd be great.

Japanese people are lucky ... They can have a full set of Detective Conan (Case Closed) in their happy meal !

Beside that, the slow pace is still here. But less annoying than Deidara/Gaara, mostly because it isn't a "major battle", so my expectations weren't high to begin with.
But I'm surprised that Sakura already knows about the kyubi ...
I don't remember she was told about before.

The OST is really impressive, making the global averageness even more unforgivable. Lots of still images and quickly animated scenes ...
Such a waste. The composer must be trying to commit suicide right now !

The most frightening thing about this show is they will probably try to sum up all that have happened since the begining. Which means more flashbacks between fillers ...

PS : Am I the only one who was surprised to hear eagles sounding like pigeons ?

bland.

That was the most talkative, anticlimactic, 40 minute episode ever.
It was very possible to have guessed everything that happened in that episode based on the last episode.
I wish, at least, they could have sped up some of the more boring conversations some of the characters had with themselves.
For example, Naruto spends 5 minutes explaining to himself why Gaara is cool, and then cries over it. Then in the same scene, Sakura spends 5 minutes explaining why Itachi is cool. boo0o0o0oring.

I am not sure, but base on the few post above Naruto talking to sakura-chan and telling him about Kyubi and ... ( i am just guessing) were actually part of the Manga and real story, If that is what made you frustrated of course.

Oh come on, its been 2 years.. and she's not some average ninja gal, her sensei is the Hokage itself, and IIRC she told them that she's been doing some researchs by herself too... Commonsense -.-

Is the eagle lady shown, I remember in the manga she rival Ayame (ramen girl ) in terms of attractive side character that do nothing but look pretty =3

God, I think my T keypad broke =/

Still havent watched he episode tho ^^

^ Definitely yea o_o

This episode really downgraded Sasori (with a lame attempt of "having fun") ._. .. Bu I must gives credit for the fight... it was kinda good, considering they cant show Sasori's arsenal other then his tail.

The flashback for Naruto on Gaara was ok, but the Sakura on Sasuke was kinda dragged on IMO.

The "decoder" girl was there .. I was going WTF first when its a guy receiving the bird .. She look a bit older tho :0: Anyone care to dug in her manga pic?

What else, oh yea, despite the urgency of the story, the peoples dont seems to depict that, Baki walking calmly to meet the siblings, peoples walking and children running on Suna .. I know it was o squeeze a few more seconds to the story.. but it kinda losing the story's urgency a bit.

I definitely hink Kankurou looks better with his face mask

Anyway, face drawing is nice, I love Sakura during the "jump on tree to your next destination" face.. I find it very hot ^^ .. Temari "chubby" face is cute as hell too =3

Overall, pace seems to pick up just by a bit .. but it seems in the preview we gonna have a filler episode of the sibling (or is it just chiyoo baasama) trying to cure what her grandson have done to Kankurou.. ._.

I guess they gonna stop at Naruto arriving on Suna I guess.. to have that "cliffhanger" ..

Ep 8 was great, probably the best we've seen of Shippuden since 1-2. There wasn't any staring contest involved in the fight between Kankarou...actually, they didn't seem to stretch much at all, it was quite fast-paced when compared the Gaara fight.

Ep 9 was a a little disappointing with the overuse of flashbacks, but even then I enjoyed it much more than most of Shippuden. It seems like Chiyo is going to be an interesting addition to the series, [couic]
Good week for Bleach and Shippuden. I'm hoping Shippuden can stay at the same level as ep 8, it''ll be enjoyable to watch then.

I have to say this was one of the better episodes they've done. The plot was interesting, I didn't have the need to skip some scenes even.

Overall a good episode, even the flashbacks were interesting to see.

Is the next episode in two weeks time again?

Yeah, they did pick up the pace in this one, and I, for one, am satisfied. Surprisingly.

I do hope they don't steer clear too much off of that path, I know most manga fans already know what happens so they want to get to the good bits, but the thing is, even the manga can be slow or "filler-filled".

Edit by Mod: Spoiler deleted. Poster penalized.

every time they keep on showin sakura, the more crap it gets, she adds nothing to the storyline or humor side of naruto series in general. Now she gets all strong and shit, and can boast all she wants.

Definately one of the better episodes they've done. Things seemed to move faster and we weren't forced to endure something like gaara's sand moving at 2 km a year. Hope they can keep things moving smoothly.

It's really something to see the powerful bond between Gaara and Naruto. Two who suffered similarly, because of having those monsters inside of their bodies. Hard to say anything other than, how much Naruto wants to rescue Gaara. It'll definitely be a great rescue attempt. Good thing he was asked to go on this mission considering who it's involving he'd probably run off on his own anyways.

Well aside from not a huge lot actually happening it was a decent episode. I was glad that they didnt draw out the fight and tried to atleast give sasori a reason for not finishing it in 5 seconds flat (Although compared to Gaara and deidra reenacting what it would be like for godzilla to try and catch a sparrow anything would look better in comparison )

Heres hoping the plot keeps moving briskly and doesnt get bogged down too much in filler junk again...
