"Naruto Shippuden" Reviews
Pepper and Coffee
I've never seen an anime that loved basking in itself more than this one. It tries to add significance to literally every other scene by making the characters reminisce about how something related to the scene affected their lives in some deep and profound way. When actually, the reality of the scene doesn't call for it. It's like if I went to grab a Dr. Pepper from the fridge and then just sat down and reflected about the first time I ever had a Dr. Pepper and how it's always there for me in the hard times; and did this every time I went to get a Dr. Pepper. It never lets the moments just play out and flow naturally. Instead, it stops the flow of the plot by making everything way deeper than it needs to be. To metaphor it, this anime is a bad cup of coffee. It started out naturally brewed and it was fine, but then they started to add a little cream to it to enhance the flavor, and it was still fine. But then they kept putting more and more creamer to it, and now we're left to what Naruto is today, a way too rich cup of coffee that can't be enjoyed all at once. Instead, you just come back to it every so often for a little sip. In fact, are we sure that Christopher Nolan didn't have a hand in directing this?
This is one of the worst shows; I did watch -talking bout long runners here- most of one piece and bleach (even managed to finish bleach). I took a break of 3 years or more from this one because of it's unbearably stupid fillers; i started watching again hoping that it's finished but ended up skipping through fillers, again. Naruto is going to be an 7-8/10 * series after some site will trim all the 300 full of bullsh1t episodes. This "anime" will make you feel ripped off every time you encounter it's fillers (which is VERY often). The creators even managed to make canon episodes feel like fillers; are they creating a 20 minutes episode out of 1 page of manga?
Do yourself a service and watch , as others have stated, something better: SAO, death note, berserk, avatar, code geass, attack on titan, soul eater, hellsing, tokyo ghoul even akame ga kill or blood+ or even chris colorado . Until some1 trims the horrible fillers that just make shit an otherwise good series, don't bother with this one.
To "anime fans"
If you think this anime "is a masterpiece" (yes, I've seen some say that) you are ether
A - 12 years old
B - mentally retarded, like serious, down syndrome or something, clinical anyway
C - trollling
Stop wasting time, go watch something decent like aot or deathnote and maybe after that you will be ready to see some real masterpieces
Re: Previous Review
Ignorance is bliss.. Haters wouldn't understand the plot of this anime and the time it will take to build up each characters... Sure it can use some more development that's why they make up for the fillers.. Sometimes they go too far but nothing we can do about it.. Personally, I enjoy fillers and sidetracks to understand why the characters become who they are.. It pains me to see someone rate Naruto (a masterpiece) for a 1-star.. I am actually amazed of how Naruto is connected to 3rd -> Jiraiya (master) -> 4th (father) -> Kakashi
the list would go on but it will always take us back to the Chunin Exam or the lives of those important characters and give us a slight hint of their role to the anime
It's not really a review, I was just trying to defend Naruto Shippuden. Though I hope it helped.
P.S. To the previous review.. GET OUT of the anime if you're criticizing it or you'll make people like me toxic to you since the majority enjoys this anime.
I Love This Anime
All of my anime watching friends have urged me to watch this anime from the naruto days and I was originally reluctant because I didn't want to watch something about kids. Eventually i decided to download the whole lot up to shippuden and I must say that this is genuinely one of my favorites hands down, no questions asked, absolutely loved it from episode one.
I mean seriously, yeah it has immaturity and naruto is a little stupid, but it grows on you as the anime progresses because you feel heartbroken, elated, crushed, etc for some of these characters. There is so much tenacity and spirit as well as determination and after a few episodes you actually find yourself smiling at his stupidity because it's actually a major part of where he gets himself emotionally. How could you possibly survive as him without such a thick...skin? The characters definitely grow, except maybe sakura, and yeah theres immaturity but come on! Where, even in the real world, would you find no immaturity???
It's deep and motivational where even some of the fillers are interesting. Not all of them ofc but if you can suffer bleach fillers these are a breeze(don't get me wrong i enjoyed bleach too but atleast there are no tacky super heroe fillers in naruto) with my favorite from naruto being the one where they try and reveal kakashi's beaver/fish lips face(KO).
Overall i think this anime is an excellent watch for the determiniation and strength from the characters; my common favorites also lie with some dark characters XD who also have their own awesome quirks!
Love this anime to bits! So much so that i could easily rewatch 90% of the episodes and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a nice long story that genuinely connects with a large audience because it has so much to offer!
Naruto Episode 322
HAVE YOU SEEN MADARA IN THIS EPISODE??
Madara has got to be the most badass villain in all of anime.
Hes just wiping the floor with every shinobi that comes his way like NOTHING! (Madara is just like Aizen from Bleach both have extreme overpowered powers except Madara is even stronger then even the main character can beat)
WATCHING this episode I am definitely gonna be looking forward to watching the next episode!
Quality, Animation, Action, Suspense, Personal Enjoyment = 9.5/10 (Sound track not really noticeable)
If the anime Naruto had no fillers and kept to the main story line it would be an anime everyone would like (Believe it)
A Classic, and It's Evolving.
Right, so I started watching Naruto some odd 10 years ago through the Anime Club's Wednesday Night Screening, where they showcase various anime for a few episodes per title. If the show is likeable enough, a certain number of votes ensure that that anime will air the next few episodes. Naruto happens to be a popular series to watch over again, despite reaching 130 episodes at the time of the screening. Before my departure from the club (Due to moving house) the guys gave me 130 episodes of Naruto.... which I watched for 3 straight days and nights, pausing only for meals, toilet breaks and occasional naps. It was that particular period I felt as if no matter how badly off the path they strayed, to me Naruto series will always be my favorite.
Cue to today's latest incarnation, Naruto Shippuden. With more episodes than the original, we could see that its share of fanbases have not slowed. For those of you who complained about how notorious Naruto's fillers are, ask yourselves this: will you still watch Naruto as a whole? Do you have what it takes to even appreciate Naruto to watch the series again from the very beginning? Because I would. I would watch even the beginning of Naruto, and all the fillers associated with it, then jump to Naruto Shippuden and watch it all the way through! Again! Because I still love Naruto to death. Never mind the technical details like fillers! All the more interesting scenarios Naruto or his friends have to face in the heat of the moment! So dive right in and enjoy the show for the sake of enjoying it, without worrying about what others think.
Can everyone just stop writing their hate opinions and make a god damned review? This is a Review posting board for people who haven't watched the Anime to see good Reviews on what the Anime is about. It's not a place where you can post your hate opinions, go do that somewhere else. I'm getting really sick and tired of the hate spam on the Naruto Shippuden Review board, -_- As well as on other Anime's I've seen around. If you're going to wright a Review, do it right please and not spam the Review board. I had to put this out there because people/Trolls don't like to take their hate arguments somewhere else.
Okay, Review time. :)
Yes, Naruto does indeed have allot of fillers but, would you rather have no episodes at all instead of a filler? Personally, there's quite a few fillers I like because it gives certain characters a background story and, some of them actually give me feels. I've been watching Naruto ever since I was little, now being older, I continue to watch and love the series, regardless of the amount of fillers. The show does have it's comedy points, somehow they even manage comedy in the bizarrest of moments and every time that happens, I laugh. The show right now has reached a critical point in the story line, want to know what it is? watch the Anime to find out. :) You can't hate something if you never tried it right? so if you haven't watched the first series yet, go watch it right now! ^-^ If you don't like it, don't watch it. :) If you like it, great! keep watching. :) It never hurts to try. ^-^ Well, that is if you don't intentionally try to jump of a building which I don't recommend doing because it will hurt to try. :P
Alright, sorry if my Review sucks. ^-^' But I just had to do something about the little arguments that's going on right now. :P
@The Jojo 420, You're not helping, telling people off is just going to spark a war.
People who love Naruto, keep the comments to yourself please. Don't bash the haters, you're only feeding them glory. By feeding them glory, they have won the fight.
