I have to say the animation was great. As for the filler... not so much.

Don't really like the OP, it's too short imo. Great ED however, I like the action and their sync with the music, along with Neji, Tenten and Lee. But is this implying that there will be a new filler arc? ...Oh no.

Does anyone know what's written on the poster Naruto hangs out on that fence? A translation for that would be great.


Awesome Ending. The opening song is great and I like the symbolism in the opening. I just wish there'd be awesome action scenes in it as well. Episode was a waste of staff. Good animation for a crappy episode. Where were you guys when we actually needed you?

^ This. I just don't get it sometimes, its not like they change animation teams by schedule, cos normally the important episodes get great animation, i.e. kakuzu fight, sasuke vs itachi etc.

I really like the pre time skip naruto vibe there... the old BGM the old jokes...

But the best was the ending, if you show that ending to someone who doesn't know Naruto, could think that Ten Ten is indeed a regular character

So, today I finally decided to give these filler episodes a shot (w/180)

and I was pleasantly surprised. You know, this was what made me like Naruto back then. You know, when people weren't all OMGHAXORFIGHT, kyuubi was something to *really* be feared, and the interaction that Naruto and Sasuke had.

I think I will go back and watch the other episodes too, if they'll bring this level of nostalgia.

OP has nearly nothing in it, just naruto under water about to throw up and then pushed out of it.
Though I think it's an OK opening for a filler arc??

Urgh.. I noticed text is flipped horizonatly after good 10 minutes of wtf? Anyway, it says 修業相手求ム, which roughly translates as "seeking training partner (sparring partner?)", and on the side there is signature Uzumaki Naruto

Yeh, right... the Pein clown VS Naruto also was a good animation?


Anyway, was it just me or this new OP really short. Though I did like it, especially the meaning behind it.

Despite being good, ED made me go WTF?
1. What has Neji's team forgotten in it? They barely showed up in Shippuden.
2. What the hell is Konohamaru doing with them? It looks so akward...

It would have worked better if they used different team members in it. Or are we going to have a filler with Neji's team and Konohamaru in it?

Otherwise the whole fighting sequence looked cool.

And I kinda like how fillers were handled so far, they still show a bit of canon material each time so that we aren't completly stuck.

The best thing about this episode was the ending. And the fact that it ended.

Do you even watch Naruto? Konohamaru didn't learn Bunshins/Ero Bunshins/Rasengan for nothing. It's because Naruto is Konohamaru's role model. What's awkward about him training with Naruto?

I'm glad Team Neji got some screen time. Even though Lee's a Gai clone, it was really nice to see Neji again. He's one of my favorite characters. Ten Ten is cool as well.

Mercenary guys battling, the animation there was really good reminded me a bit of Samurai Champloo, if only we could have more taijustu in the anime but noo...its always flashy techniques that involve fireworks going off everywhere in a 15 mile radius

the episode was alright, didn't care for the OP too much myself, though I'm sure the song will grow on me and I rather enjoyed the ED

The new ED was pretty good. I think it is the first time that Ten Ten looked hot. I liked the bit with Naruto grabbing Konahamaru's scarf and using it against him too. He gives himself too blatent a weakness with that scarf.

A close friend once told me that Kishi should put Ten Ten in the rol of Sakura, using weapons and not acting as a nurse... besides, both are pretty much decoration at battle, but Ten Ten uses weapons.

^ Tenten is going to get a lot of new fanboys with her outfit.

Team Gai are the fighting team. Ino-Shika-Cho are the capture/intelligence team. Team Kurenai are the tracking team. So that's why Team Gai was used here. They needed taijutsu. I would like to see different endings where Naruto interacts with each team. Having just one team is lame. But Team Gai are Team Irrelevant in the manga. So let them ave their moment. The anime loves Tenten and her bo. They always make her look so cool. I think I might go as Tenten for a Halloween party after seeing her.

The OP was pretty good, but I am getting tired of the Naruto and Sasuke stuff. We get it. The best part was when everyone in his Inner Circle put their hand on Naruto to push him up. That was awesome.

Tenten is actually very attractive. Kishi even likes her design best among the girls. Her looks aren't her problem.

TenTen was alvays hot It's kishi that doesn't give her enough screen time. But at least animators are filing the holes Kishi left

The OP was good, but I am kinda tired of having to see Sasuke next to Naruto again

Does it matter? The endings are just random clips, they don't have anything to do with canon and they don't have to make sense either. Just enjoy the action and Tenten's ass.
