Yay first comment;)
anyway i hope that the garra dedria fight will pick up and be something besides exploding birds that seem to do no damage and garras horrible depth peception where he tries the same attack for 30 mins without a hit

Ummm...not to be a "wet blanket" or anything, but FYI, you guys should know that there will AGAIN be no Naruto next week, with Episode 6-7 airing on March 29as a 1-hour special.

So, please hold onto your stock, "Can't wait for next week!" comments! :heh:

My take on Episode 5: the Gaara vs. Deidara fight may STILL not be over, and we'll be stuck with flashbacks galore...remember, the Episode title is, "As the Kazekage...", so we may get to see HOW Gaara became Kazekage, and the "responsibilites" he shoulders with the titles, and of course, how "Naruto's words" have affected his outlook in life blah blah...

Corn 2007-03-15 04:07

Well this is a 1 hour special right?

I want to see how the other Konoha kids look like now. Like Rock Lee:)

I wonder if Naruto will have to take the chunin exam now. He seems rather weak though, but not worse than before...

I had hoped for it to be 1 hour special too but unfortunatly its not :heh: . However after episode 5 is aired, next week no naruto again. Then on 29th we have an hour special for episode 6 and 7 .

Also Naruto is probably really strong. In episode 1 , Jiraya warned Kakashi if he take naruto lightly he will get crushed.

Spoiler for Episode 5, first impression, a.k.a. filler report.:

GrAYFoX 2007-03-15 07:32

Aww, the pace (read filler) is really killing it for me. What should be quick and exciting strategic battles between ninja's is just a drawn out soap show style montage of what appears to be a fight....

Luminion Lancer 2007-03-15 08:58

-Geez we wait this long and this is all we get? Come on, I know the Naruto people want to make sure not to catch-up to the manga very quickly again but this is driving me nuts. Well, maybe it'll pick up soon...

Miaka FY 2007-03-15 12:38

really slow anime serie but well...maybe they want make more 200 episodes

well put 7 for this episode because Gaara and his brother

<snipped by mod>

long waiting ....

Screenshot for Episode 5: Since I'm too busy to complain at the moment, I'll just keep it short. Have given this episode a 5.8 and will round it up to a 6. The episode didn't go anywhere, so to speak. I felt restless as I was watching this episode. I kept reminding myself that this was better than filler, so I could go through with the episode. The music is still solid, but that's about it. Kankuro's reminscent of a changed Gaara and his heartfelt words were the highlight of this episode. The music was very good at that moment as well which is why I'm giving this episode a 6. As for the fight scenes, I'm starting to wish for a no-fight episode already.

sx3 2007-03-15 18:43

im kinda dissapointed.. that episode wasn't really what i expected :( what really gets to me is that yet again we have to skip ANOTHER week of naruto than we get a 1 hour special, that doesn't even make up for the 2 lost episodes :mad: ugh they better make this worth our time, i've had to spend the last week etc. watching old old naruto episodes jsut to keep myself entertained -.-

Strike101 2007-03-15 19:10

What' up with the wierd animations ? it started right after Shipudden 1&2 , i'm not referring to the art/design , but to the way they move , their really badly animated... missing frames or moving ankwardly

(etc. like a few episodes earlier when gara was jumping on the floating sand and kakashi throwing the shurikens at naruto

djmaca 2007-03-15 19:20

Hmm how many days before the next episode?

tacobueno 2007-03-15 20:23

Animations' still pretty substandard, story moves painfully slow. Givin it a 4-ish, atleast with Bleach they cranked up teh quality when they came back from filler, I'ma stick to the manga for this series.

Zek 2007-03-15 20:25

Hahaha, this is incredible. 5 episodes into Shippuden and they have covered less than 5 chapters of material. And in that time they've also missed two weeks. At this rate there was no need for any filler at all; what are they thinking?

Maes Hughes 2007-03-15 20:53


Much better episode than the last two episdes. I doubt they'll be able to keep making Shippuden as good with the current pacing...can't hurt to hope I suppose.

Did anyone else laugh out loud when it showed Sasori still complaining in the same spot he's been in since entering the village? I can't believe the anime team turned a member of Atasuki into a comical character.

juggen 2007-03-15 20:55

One word:

that'ss what Naruto Shippuuden is, except ep1&2.

This episode was REALLY REALLY boring!

Nothing happened at all, AGAIN!

Animations are at same level as fillers.

BGM is good, hooooraay!!!

I think I'm gonna stick to the anime a few more week, and if it hasn't gotten better, I'll start reading the manga, cause this isn't what I've been waiting for, for almost 2 years.

Its like watching fillers, there no feeling to this anime anymore, everything is just lame.

At least when I read the manga i can imagine how awesome it could have looked.
When I watch the anime I just wanna turn it off and watch something else.

This is like Sunset Beach, you can miss about 7 eps and you won't miss anything.
(yeah, flame me, I watched some of it when I was younger ^^)

@Maes Hughes
That's about the same time I wanted to turn it off and watch something else.
NOT funny imo, not at all actually.

astayanax 2007-03-15 20:58

Deidara is the man.

Maes Hughes 2007-03-15 21:02

Not sure why people hate this episode as much as the last two... I found it much more entertaining. It's kinda odd to disagree with the Shippuden hate mob for the first time. :p

Yeah, bombing the sand village because he can't win 1v1 is real manly.

juggen 2007-03-15 21:15

My only hope is that they store some resources up for special fights etc. so now that they have made 3 extremely poor episodes, maybe the can make something decent out of the 1 hour special in 2 weeks.

At least I have my Bleach, which is even better than before the fillers. I was hoping for the same with Naruto...
