The raw is out

*edit

lol at the DBZ-esque time warp. I'm guessing three minutes is going to span about 5 episodes in total.

Anyway, HOLY SHIT. That was kind of amazing. Even with the pacing being all mucked up and the two story lines totally crashing against eachother, I was totally engrossed. And they finally managed to not fuck up Sakura's character design.

8/10 Color me shocked.

The last bit at the end was pavgasm worthy.

Just to make it clear, it's that IN THAT 3 minutes, the poison WON'T affect her, so after that 3 minutes, if she gets hit, it'll be bad.

You know, I really have to hand it to these guys. They've got talent. Not just anybody can fill 20 minutes of animation without actually making any progress in the plot whatsoever. Let's sum up what actually happened in this entire episode:

*Sakura explains the antidote.
*Naruto and Kakashi keep chasing Deidara.
*Sasori shows his puppet form.

And that's it. A lesser anime team might have covered this in the first 5 minutes of the episode, but the skillful animators behind Naruto obviously take after Sasori's school of artistry: true anime endures the ages.

I watched a bit of the raw but not the whole thing and yea...they seem to want to alienate all their fans and just lose ratings otherwise the way in which the produce this anime would be different, entertaining, and more enjoyable. Its been 20 eps since Iv'e seen anything remotely interesting ( besides gia's little 3 minute gate's attack).........where is the action and format of the old naruto

The three minutes started last episode. Are we suppose to believe that three minutes haven't gone by by yet?

I was about to give this episode a 8, but the Kakashi doing a Kage Bushin filler really irked me and it was a terrible mistake from th anime team.

After that, the anime team at last stopped showing the team Gai Clone fights, Flashback and filler were well placed, animation was average...something I sort of felt was that the music wasn't present in this episode. maybe it was me....

Priceless moments:

-Sasori been perplexed at Sakura medical genius

-Sasori revealing his true form and his face expression while at it . IMO one of the most freakiest revelation in the entire series, I mean, how more F****** up can it be, turning yourself into a human Puppet???...thats sick!

-Kakashi saying his brain is at the level of Shikamaru's (Yeah..He wish...)

Why is that? (I mean, more so than what they've already done, other than it being a filler.) I don't think it changes anything serious, but I may be wrong.

--> You know, the episode is 30 minutes in length or maybe a few minutes less than that. But still, I can't believe that 30 minutes or less was squish in 3 minutes of what happen Man, I guess time flies by pass when you're fighting

Naruto is licensed, so asking for fansubs and giving links or places to find them is prohibited.

Your question is tricky and I will try my best to answer it without been banned, either way, as to were the story is I can say that this filler is on the degree of Tsunade punching Oro dozen of time, whereas it was said that one punch from Tsunade is enough to kill someone. in this case, a Kage Bushin here distort a bit the perception of what Kage Bushin are about.

If you're talking about what will happen later on in the story, then I don't think it does. Of course, there's a lot of details in Naruto that I simply can't remember well, so I'll leave it at that.

Regarding this particular use of kage bunshin, all it shows (at least to me) is that kage bunshin does make good copies of the original and nothing more.

P.S. If I'm totally wrong here, feel free to send me a PM if you wish. Or we can wait and see, that is, if you're still watching Naruto by then.

Well, the animation quality was vast improvement over last episode. The scenes with Kakashi evading the grasshopper bombs were well done. Kakashi using kage bunshin to escape wasn't very creative, but it's just filler anyway. Granted, I wish more time had been devoted to Sakura fighting Sasori, but it looks like that will be carried over to the next episode. Sasori revealing his puppet body to Chiyo and Sakura wasn't as disturbing as I imagined, but very cool nonetheless.

7/10 for this episode

The new movie is looking pretty good from the clips they're showing during the OP. It mostly features Naruto, Lee, Sakura (same team as movie 3) with the addition of Neji. As usual for Naruto movies, it looks like they have protect some spoiled child. Except some of the scenes between Naruto and this character look a little suggestive (i'm thinking the scenes in the woods). Hinata will be jealous.

I give it 7/10.

Kakashi Bunshin plan were ok.
They talk a lot.
Is it me or it lacks music lol. yah...they just lack some musics...

However,
There were no more Gai fights...It was pretty disturbing.
The animation was decent
The revealment of Sasori was quite creepier than I thought. It was pretty impressive ^^. Even more scary than Orochimaru. *HOLY S***T

Well, it could have been more better. Oh WELL, I DONT CARE SINCE NEXT EPISODE SHOULD BE GOOD! and Sasori revealing his true form was good enough for me =D

Not too bad an episode although it is stretched beyond stretched.

OMG! Sasori the cyborg ninja! I wonder is he immortal in that form?

mayhem please read the rules before you post <<. I already read the manga but some of these people haven't and you're going to ruin it for them. You can't mention anything manga even if it's in spoiler tags.

Anime-only people DO NOT READ THE SPOILERS.
