I appreciate their effort for trying to come up with this kind of filler instead of random stories about filler characters no one cares about, but this was mighty boring. Hopefully the next episode will be more interesting.

Perhaps if I actually gave a damn about Iruka, I'd be able to enjoy this. Unfortunately, I don't. Now if they're gonna throw us some more flashback filler, how about showing us what took place during the second chuunin exams? I'd love another forest of death and tournament arc that shows us how almost all of the next generation got promoted.

It's important to remember that Iruka is one of the most popular characters in Naruto in Japan. The only characters to ever beat him in the popularity poll were Kakashi, Sasuke, Naruto, Shikamaru, and Deidara. So the Japanese will probably like that Iruka is getting some attention. But that doesn't mean he can carry a mini-arc.

If there were more focus on the rookies, then this would have at least been entertaining. Their few moments were the highlights. I just can't bring myself to care about Iruka, but it could be okay if the rookies were mostly shown.

If this were a real class, at least 70% of the girls in his class would be rolling their eyes over how smug he acts. He is not even that attractive. But this is fantasy so I guess every girl has to love Sasuke.

the stereotype has to come from somewhere, and is also partially a fact, young girls tend to like the cool, smug, asshole, good looking guy.

This episode wasn't really about Iruka. It was more about Naruto. And I don't know why so many would give it a low score. It's not traditional filler. No stupid filler character that Naruto has to identify with. No stupid filler villains we can see. It was done so we can see how far Naruto has come.

Look at Sasuke. Look at Naruto. Who is the better guy now?

I thought Hinata was going to go all mixed martial arts on Shino when he was dissing Naruto. Man, Shino was a smug bastard back then. Still is.

You sound bitter, Hunter. Why won't girls like the nice guys? But I think DeDe's point is that it's unrealistic that every girl would like Sasuke. There would probably be a lot of Kiba, Shikamaru, Naruto and yes even Shino fangirls in that class. The anime overdoes it.

if it were real Shino would be avoided by everyone, specialy girls. Kiba and naruto would have more girls and Sasuke and Shikamaru would have a few.

Thanks for the forewarning guys, I appreciate it.

Quite the opposite really, I always have been a jerk myself.
That being said Sasuke is supposed to be really incredibly good looking, that alone is sometime enough to get away with murder. The rest is just the cherry on top.

Anyway I just saw the episode and I would like my time back please.

I surprisingly enjoyed this episode. In contrast to the previous where he's the village hero and is finally recognised by all, here we are reminded once again just how much of an outcast he was.

I can't believe that a such experienced manga/anime scientist like you fell for a filler episode

I enjoy the naruto anime because i'm skipping all the filler episodes, that's probably what everyone above the age of 6 should do
