For some reason this show just has felt worse lately, maybe it was the 3 weeks without episodes, maybe it is because this part of the story stinks(I recall liking it in the manga) who knows, but I feel like I could skip a few weeks and nothing would have happened.

Oh god it is DBZ again.

Naruto as never felt the same after the horrid 80ish filler arc. They just don't know how to pace it, they should take notes from One piece.

Yeah, I'm a little disappointed with Naruto as well. Doesn't seem like the show I'd wait weeks for anymore. Instead it's a ton of flashbacks. They draw out a ton of the things that shouldn't be drawn out. It hurts that one of my all time favorite animes has turned into this. -_-;

after seeing this episode i decided to drop naruto for a while ... They focusing on to mutch things in every episode, Thats wy every episode is crap. They could better focusing on 1 thing in a episode, like bleach. Or make the episode longer.
Naruto is still a great serie but they must do things different.

yeah i agree with you there. this show feels like really slow filler with story now. whenever i check the time to see if its almost halfway through, it's already done. one piece knows how to pace.

What a huge letdown! After all this waiting for the Naruto and Orochimaru fight, this is what we get? The manga was so much better.

*sigh.* They drag everything out way too much. It's ridiculous, and starting to get really boring, and disappointing.

LOL @ Orochimaru at the beginning, that would make a great gif. :) The battle was pretty lame, Oro shooting swords from his anus, like WTF kind of fighting tactic is that?

Yeah I was let down during this episode. I was waiting for something big to happen, but no. All I had to say at the end of this was WTF. But I do have to say i am going to keep watching it just to see what happen and everything but, man it better get better.

The pace is infuriating for the simple fact that the manga is so far ahead. Its like; what was the point of that long stretch of fillers if afterwards they're going to continue to act like they'll catch up to the manga at any moment?

Pure greed.

When they announced that filler hell, I thought Naruto would go the way of Kenshin, and although I wasnt proven right, I dont know if thats good or bad anymore.

This anime isnt so bad I'll drop it, but its the potential for greatness that isnt met time and time again that makes watching it hurt so much.

This episode was just passable, not much worth mentioning really. Seeing Yamato restrain Naruto, I thought he should be the Hokage really. I wonder if Kishimoto will bring that possibility up. (I know its not likely, because Yamato becoming Hokage isnt exactly exciting and dramatic, but it would free up Tsunade to beat down bad guys in the field again)

Agree completely. They still have enough manga material for another good 40ish episodes ...? (estimated guess since I don't read the manga). Thats about 10 months of airing still ... and yet they keep pacing it like this, even during such big fights.

I read the manga and it is so far ahead its not even funny. The fact that Naruto slows down during fight scenes is like a poisoned cherry on top (of a cake-shaped poo).

We can only hope for a change in management at the production company.

Kill this crap off already. Its not even funny anymore.

To be honest. This arc had the potential to bring Naruto back to former glory. I mean we have a huge fight. Demon fox VS Orochimaru. Yet they even managed to mess that up. What the hell are the creators thinking? If you wanna drag the episode along fine. But then spice it up with awesome action! Not stare contests that put DBZ to shame. Naruto is dead to me.

Agreed. The anime isn't executing this event as well as the manga did.

It was an okay episode, I don't think it dragged as much as people say though.

I admit I'm a tough critic but the pacing is just quintessentially one of the slowest fucking shows I've ever seen.

Shit, that looks painful. Naruto's skin is all red, man.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, after all of that, his clothes are still there. Man, Jiraiya must have spent a lot of money on that clothes.
Sai's secret mission is to deliver a love letter, huh.
