Okay so the story is the same as the original Naruto series or rather almost the same , because as the characters develop and change so does the plot. And even though everyone complains about how the whole "Save-my-best-friend-from-the-evil" is really cliche i have to disagree. The story is so much more than saving Sasuke if you have failed to see that then it's understandible why you don't like the anime. Every character in the anime and their own story can be made into different animes that's how interesting some of their past and future acts are.There are alot of plot twists and i don't know about you guys but i find the idea to split Naruto into two part , Naruto and Shippuuden as in young and older, is really great. Even though we have this gap of 2.5 years of training ,as the anime progresses further we ,step by step, begin to uderstand just how much the charcaters and their atitutes have changed.
I don't know about ypu but i personally love the art , true at some point it does get lower in quality but i still like it. The fight scence are done really well ,you know the more inportant fights.Lately as the Kage Summit arc has started the animation is really smooth and good, too.
The openings and endings are great i don't know just how many of them i have downloaded and i listen to them ,like, everyday.The backround music is fitting too and the voice actors are doing an amazing job so far, too .I can't even imagine what it would be if the VAs change .
Okay this is one of Shippuuden;s strong points, if not the strongest. Every character,almost, has development and if you actually look into them you'll see that Naruto, the main hero, has one of the littlest developments. We see that Sakura is stronger and she doesn't cry that much she is more independent and she has some feelings for Naruto as well , to what extent is unknown yet. Shikamaru's stories is also one of the best and we get to see just how responsible and genious he is. Sasuke is well.........Sasuke but he has changed alot too [ and i actually started to like him ] His and Itachi's stories is amazing you have to see thaat it's really complicaded and yet sp meaningfull and tragicly beautiful. Gaara has really been opening up to people , he smiles sometimes and he is friendlier and he puts alot of effort to change and act like a normal person.So as you can see most of the characters's backrounds are revealed even the Akatsuki members's and it's done in a really good way.
Naruto/Shippuuden is one of the best animes I have evr seen , even though i used to not like it so much at one point . The fillers i have nothing to say about, every long anime has fillers so that it won't chatch up to the manga that way there won't be anything to animate.
I love this show mainly 'cuz at first it seems so childish and so smiple but it's actually alot more complicated and wonderful but i guess it's not really for everyone.
P.S I enjoy feedback and sorry for the grammar mistakes :) read more

10/10 STORY: Okay so I guess the plot isn't that original. You know the whole "going into another world to fight evil and save the world" but it isn't your typical story too since it does have some detailes that just make you go "wow i didn't see that coming for sure"
10/10 ART: I usually really like it when in an Anime the art is clean and in really huigh quality while the more old animations aren't exactly my cup of tea. With that said ,the art of MAR isn't anything new It's basicly your typical anime art but it still has that effect on the viewer , it just gets you really into the story
9/10 SOUND: I liked the openings and Endings as well as the voice actors that were chosen , the music through out some of the battles or some of the sad/happy scence is really fiting too.
10/10 CHARACTERS: Okay now this is where MAR really shines in my point of view. And now if you've watched the anime you're gonna say "what these are your typical shounen characters and they were way to predictable' However i really liked them and to prove that i am going into detail with some of the main characters that i like Warning contains some spoilers :
(he is not my favorite but he is the main hero so i have to give a little info about him too)
Okay so Ginta is the main character.The hero of the story. He is your averrage kid that goes to a school in the normal world like everybody else/ Really, nothing interesting right ? WRONG. Although he may seem stupid and clumsy he is actually has quite the outstanding personality.Sure, he's cheerfull and happy and he's the good guy that defeats the evil guys, but he is also a dreamer. He dreams about this other magical kingdom that is usually beautifull and peacefull. but now Great evil is threatning it.He has had that dreem for over 102 times [ like the amount of episodes] and even though everybody says that it doesn't mean anything he still believes that he is some sort of chosen one and he wants to go to that world. Well my firend ,a wish come true . it is !And so he goes of to the world Of MAR Heaven and that's when his journey begins.
She is the first person that Ginta meets in MAR Heaven. She's a witch and a really powerfull one. In their world, people fight with things called ARM. There are Guardian Arm, Nature Arm, Weapon Arm and so on... These are basicly guardians , weapons and element controling magic items that are usually in the form of a bracelet a necklace, rings, chains, and such. These things are ,as you can guess, soleless and most of them can't talk. But The One That Ginta finds is actually a living, talking moving arm with an atitude.Dprothy's goal is to get as many arms as she can because she has to defeat her sister Dianna that has betrayed their country and the law there is that if a sertain person is considered a traitor a member of his own family has to defeat and kill him.She is usually cheerfull and happy and she has has developed a crush on Ginta but she also has a really dark side. That of a strong and mighty witch. She doesn't hesitate to kill her oponents in batle but she promised Ginta that she son't kill anymore people in their fights.
"Nanashi" means Nameless as ina person without a name. Ironic isn't it ? He is the leader of Luberia , a guid of thiefs. He is very skilled in using arm and his physical streingth is huge too. He also loves women and in a fight with a lady he always pretends to be injured or hurt ,when he wins, so that the girl can still keep some of her pride . Although this often makes him look like an idiot, he is actually really serios sometimes. His goal is to find one of the bad guys,named Petta, and kill him for killing a huge number of his comrads ,years ago. Petta ,however, is one of the strongest arm users in the land but that doesn't stop Nanashi from seaking him out and chalanging him to a fight.
So as you can see even though the main characters are a group of strong arm users that are all fighting against the same enemy,each of them has their own different goal and that is one fo the many things that is unique about them !
I don't know about what other people thought after watching MAR but i really enjoied it sure it had some of it's minuses but it was a really good anime worth the time .So i recomend this if you're a person who enjoies great fights [ the fighting is actually done in matches on 1 on 1 fighting.]
I think every one of us should just make a stop sometimes and just watch something that is a little cliche but still good to see.So everyone should stop for a moment , take a breather from the ecchi,horror,blood-filled series , and give MAR a try and remember that .. in this world full of evil ,misery and hurt there is still hope as long as you believe in it yourself.:)
