This thread was created to talk freely of what was coming next in the anime without having to post everything under spoiler tags.

Hopefully this is legal here and the Mods will let us talk freely about our expectation of what's coming next! :D

So, let's start with great news!!!

No fillers!!!!

Look at the next episodes :

139 "The Mystery of Tobi"
December 10, 2009

140 "Fate"
December 17, 2009

141 "Truth"
December 24, 2009

142 "The Battle at Thunder Cloud Gorge"
January 7, 2010


Battle at Thunder Cloud Gorge!!!
This is the Hachibi vs Taka fight!!!

----

Now, I wonder how they will play it, because that's a lot of stuff to include in three episodes before the Battle against Hachibi and Taka...

Here how I think it will go :

139 - The mystery that is Tobi
- End of Konoha vs Tobi fight
- Konoha gets to the battle area, but they are too late
- Sasuke wakes up and Amaterasu Tobi
- Tobi get Sasuke and tell him that he will tell him everything

140 - Fate
- Story of the beginning of Konoha
- Naruto goes to Moutain to train in Sage mode

141 - Truth
- Story of the Uchiha massacre and Itachi being the good guy.
- Hebi becomes Taka.
- Sasuke accept to go hunt the Hachibi for Madara.

142 - Battle at the Thunder Cloud gorge
- Sasuke gets the info and find Hachibi
- Starts to fight
- Episode ends with Sasuke losing his "first" life :p

-----

What do you think!?
Are you excited about not having some crappy fillers!? :D

I sure am!
I was more than certain that we would get fillers either after the Brothers fight or after the Konoha's beginnings...

Now, who think we might even see Pain before we get some fillers?! :XD

(Just thinking that some fillers at the Frog Moutain with Naruto teaming with some ninja frogs would actually be very interesting! Maybe that's why they decided to wait to put up the fillers!!!)

Nindo is right, I was a little trigger happy with my episode info.

directors for next eps

this could get great with a nice animation team,so i'm looking forward to it^^

but i doubt that the fight will start in this episode allready!
this would be too forced maybe

Wtf, I thought we were having a mini-Hidan/Jashinism filler! I was so hyped for nothing >_> Poor Hidan.

But how the heck are they gonne make that in 4 episodes? Nindo, you do realize that you wrote in episode 140 that Naruto goes off to train, meaning he would have to do the following in a single episode: Get the info, be emo, be more emo, figure out the code, decide to go to the mountain. All this in a single episode? There's simply NO WAY. Not if they want to do this the right way and make Naruto's grief a good one.

I'm actually thinking that they're thinking of getting the Taka vs Hachibi overwith ASAP to actually go into semi-filler mode with Naruto training with the frogs. They could make a couple of extra episodes with that I guess. It would also make the training last longer and make it more believable in terms of accomplishments in the short time he trained. Just an idea.

Yeah, you're right...
Maybe we will only see Suigestu and Juugo get own by Killerbee and it will end with Sasuke saying "Okay... my turn now!".

December 07, 2009, 02:51 PM
maybe they want to finish with sasuke now,so that they can concentrate on naruto afterwards

they will do the fight directly after all the history telling and after the fight ended,naruto will get the info on Jiraiya's death and get his sorrow episode,then he will go to myobokuzan and might get some filler training with frogs in addition to the sage training
then pain goes to konoha to destroy it a bit and then naruto will get his GARuto time and everyone will be happy:)

Yeah, this is exactly what I thought when I saw those episode being so tight.
I think we will see the whole Sasuke thing, and then we will focus more on Naruto, with a filler arc at the moutain with the frogs!!

It will be interesting to see more ninja frogs, and it will make it more believable that Naruto get the Sage Mode, instead of just somehow getting it in a single week.

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 03:11 PM
they're skipping Naruto finding out about Jiraiya and jumping straight in KB, so filler will probably consist of Naruto's training

Googlez_kun
December 07, 2009, 03:16 PM
so we probably will get fillers,but not the ones we expected,what makes me happy
and i think the myobokuzan fillers will be awesome and if the screw up those fillers,then i will call them the "geniueses in f*cked-up filler writing*

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 03:18 PM
I'm still kinda iffy about the Naruto vs. Pain arc in May, it could mean that the invasion begins in May or the actual fight starts. I guess it should be the former, but they have been burning through the manga so maybe we will get less filler.

May seems late for the invasion,that would mean we get a whole filler arc
i think May could be the start of their fight,that seems about right to me,because the animator team's pace is incredible recently.

yeah,and this arc should will be interesting,because we may see the pains taking on some of the fodder konoha nin,so we will get some awesome animations in this one maybe
there is a lot of potential filler material in the fights in the invasion!kishimoto skipped a lot there,some kakashi action,aburame action and other we wanted to see in the manga,so maybe the anime team will make a nice job showing us the missing pieces

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 03:37 PM
yeah like how pain defeated fodder between pages >___>

so damn broken

kinda skeptical about the animation since they just finished up with a handful of special eps with this arc. Maybe their budget did increase

Googlez_kun
December 07, 2009, 03:41 PM
but that would still mean more screen time for the pains:p
and it stress the destruction of konoha and how badass pain actually was,by taking a whole village with 7 ninja

the last arcs do were great,so maybe their budget did really increase,so that they can pull more special episodes with great animation
they should get the team that did the episode with gamaken and jiraiya against the dogs and pain
i really love their style and would love seeing another episode by them

So, the same guy who did Jiraiya's death is doing Itachi's final moments? Nice.


so I guess the invasion itself will start in March/April

I hope that's true, I want to see Pain destroying Konoha for my birthday. :D

I still hope for some added animation of Hashirama vs Madara...

December 07, 2009, 04:14 PM
I sure hope they don't show to much of Pain owning fodder. It would further add to the ridiculous ammount of chakra he put out in that war.

Blade800
December 07, 2009, 04:15 PM
What do I think?

Where the f*ck is the episode when Naruto find out Jiraya is dead. Sasuke vs KB is too early dont you think? Naruto finding out about Jirayas death must be earlier than that fight. Or am I wrong?

And how come those episodes are next? Theres suppossed to be 10 filler episodes.

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 05:59 PM
looks like filler is coming later. And the anime is skipping Naruto and Jiraiya right now for KB and Sasuke, its the other way around in the manga

Yeah, so far the fillers in shippuden have almost always been tied with the plot.
So, we can hope to see some fillers (maybe a full arc) during Naruto training.
And we can certainly hope for the anime guys to fill the gap left by Kishimato (Aburame fighting Konan, Inuzuka fighting Fat Pain, maybe even Iruka fighting Hell Pain, or Ibiki/Shizune fighting Summon Pain or Human Pain!)

I can't wait for that arc!
It's going to be really nice to see those Chunnin rookies going all out against the Pain!! :XD

Wow, one thing I didn't think about. In only FOUR episodes we'll actually hear Killer Bee's voice! Omg I can't wait! I'm praying for it to be epic, they just can't screw him up! Bee without a super epic voice = fail.

3c
December 07, 2009, 07:54 PM
Actually, in the first Shippuuden opening "Heroes come back", that's rapping. And I actually like the rapping there. Bee's rapping can actually turn out pretty good if they put a little effort into it. It's not like he's rapping a long verse or something, it's just a few lines at most, which shouldn't be hard to make into something decent with slight effort :XD

Shiro-kun
December 07, 2009, 07:57 PM
We are going to see Naruto's training soon and the the Killer Bee fight soon that sounds about right , hopefully the last filler (the one that gave The Jiraiya v. Pain and Itachi v. Sasuke a lot of time ) also gave the finest animator enough time for the Hachibi vs Sasuke and Pain vs Naruto fight (although thats incredibly hopeful)..cause i dont want another filler between the The Killer Bee fight and The Invasion of Pain :(.

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 07:58 PM

Is time what keeps them back? I thought they were thinking more about the economy. As the best teams handle the important stuff, and the "lesser" teams handle the other stuff. So I wouldn't think that they would struggle to much with the time between the events as there are plenty of weeks in between to cover up the time between major events. And the teams are also on a fine rotation, so the best teams don't actually animate that often. I think time is important, but it's the economy that really rules it. The fillers serve two purposes, mainly to give the manga and anime a bigger gap, and secondly which also is a less important reason is to give the animation teams handling the big things abit more time. So they kinda serve as a slight breather for the other animation teams aswell. This is my take on it atleast, looking at it from an economical aswell as time-perspective.

Osprey
December 07, 2009, 08:10 PM
So I guess chapters 405-409 will be placed after the Kirabi vs. Sasuke fight.

Those chapters start the official start of the Pan Arc so I guess the anime with finish up with Sasuke first.

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 08:18 PM
it doesn't really matter what kind of animation Shippuuden gets because the ratings are always high. Pierrot only contracts special animators to get a couple spikes in ratings during the climaxes in arcs. In reality, the special animators aren't really expensive, but its just way more profitable to get internal teams to handle the anime. But like you said, filler is needed to maintain ratings and give the anime a breather from the anime.

Shiro-kun
December 07, 2009, 08:22 PM
I thought the Part I fillers nearly bankrupted Pierrot, or is that rumor that ive heard incorrectly :oh? I think they had some money troubles since Part II began, and it looked obvious with very poor animations at some parts.

But as long they dont F*** up Bee vs Sasuke and Pain vs Naruto (also when Pain's Atomic Shinra Tensei bomb shouldnt be poorly animated either ..) fights i dont really care

3c
December 07, 2009, 08:27 PM
To be honest I can't wait for the next opening now. I know, this opening fucking owns, but imagine what would be in the next one! We would perhaps see a teaser of Chou Shinra Tensei, Chibaku Tensei and maybe even see KN8 come out! Perhaps Yondaime will be in it also! *dies* At any rate, I think they will slightly replace the aimation in the current opening very very soon, and then I mean in perhaps two episodes. As it's time to cut out some of Jiraiya's scenes and put in some Bee! Maybe even Raikage etc.

CBlitz
December 07, 2009, 08:32 PM
I expect Bee and Toad Mountain with Naruto training. And yeah, Part I filler hell pretty much wasted all the budget so thats why Shippuuden sucked for the first season. Though all the original teams that worked on Naruto ended up getting fired lol.

December 07, 2009, 08:33 PM

I wanna know who they're gonna pick to voice Bee. Is it possible to get Joe Inoue back to do another opening by then? Heck, if not another opening, let him play Bee himself. The guy can do hip hop too, so why not? Bee speaks more english out of anyone in the series.

I didnt know that Anime can do this. Its weird dont you think? To jump storyline to something important and then came back. You know because there is still something like "time" and how can they jump right into Killer bee and then show how Naruto finds out Jirayas death when a lot of days passed from that incident.

December 09, 2009, 11:53 PM
EDIT

so 142 will probably end with Sasuke declaring vengeance on Konoha or w/e. The Gorge title could be referring to Hashirama's and Madara's fight at VoTE, or it could be the beginning of the KB fight. I don't know why they'd make such a title for something that doesn't even happen in the ep. If we do get KB, its probably gonna be in 143.

the OP is guaranteed to feature KB when it changes though

I doubt it.
The Lighting Cloud gorge translate to "Unraikyo"
Which is the title of the chapter when Kirabi fight Suigestu and Juugo.

While Naruto and company are fighting against Tobi's mysterious technique, Zetsu makes an appearance and tells about Sasuke's fight with Itachi. Zetsu and Tobi disappear, leaving Konoha ridiculed and surprised.

Madara and Sasuke confront each other in one of Akatsuki's hideouts. Madara reveals the fact that he was lending Itachi a hand on THAT night, and starts revealing Sasuke the unknown truth about Itachi. Sasukeis shocked and freaks out, fainting. Madara then tells sasuke it's his obligation to at least hear the story of his brother.

His whole family had planned a coup in Konoha (as in rebelling).
Madara talks a story which is hard to believe, and sasuke is torn apart.
In the reason of the superiors, Itachi was a vital piece in the family.
Being young, he had experienced the great wars and suffered great trauma, he yearned for stability and peace in the village. When the mystery of the annihilation night is revealed, Sasuke knows for the first time Itachi's feelings and what thoughts he held.

Meanwhile Naruto continues the search for sasuke reaching the ruins of the former fighting site, where Amaterasu's flames remain. They cannot find a trace.
On the other hand, Sasuke, who now knows the truth about Itachi, rejects the transplant of his brother's Sharingan, and he decides his next goal is to crush Konoha. Akatsuki and Sasuke then join forces.

summaries for 139-142

Well remember its near the end of the year, if they had excess funds they could be dumping it into the final december episodes of Taka vs KB.

Luckily, Naruto vs Pain falls in the next fiscal year so they should have plenty of money to make those episodes amazing though I don't know how the fiscal calendar is in Japan. I could be wrong...

7 and 30 is the time that airs Naruto Shippuuden in Japan.

7:30PM on Tv Tokyo.

I think the image with the new sharingan Sasuke stands for the battle of Killer Bee and Naruto and the frog is for the training with the toad.

Interesting. So we're seeing Sasuke vs Hachibi sooner? I don't remember the correct time line from the manga. Wasn't Naruto in training when Sasuke was going to face Bee?

And then he goes to training after the fight :s

Hmm, filler arc? It's supposed to be only some small episodes cause T.D.A (if i'm not mistaken) has put up some time ago that the anime wouldn't have any large fillers until the end of Naruto's and Pain's fight, which should be after that supposed filler arc.

I hope that they don't do anything bad to it :\

No way that it can take that long. Naruto won't even be present so they'd be just ruining it.

Probably 4 or 5 episodes and that's it.

You got it all wrong guys, its a poster for both the next summer's movie and the weekly TV anime, hence the absence of 劇場版 on the logo.

The 7 and 30's yellow sentence state Naruto shippuuden is broadcasted on Thursday at 7:30 pm on TV Tokyo.

The far left red sentence state there will be a movie on summer 2010.

In the middle, there's a cast list in white, listing Takegami Junko (Naruto), Hino Satoshi (Sai), Katsuki Masako (Tsunade), Sugiyama Nariaki (Sasuke) and Kondou Takashi (Suigetsu). It could be for the movie or for the weekly TV series.

The sentence in black state the original work is by Kishimoto Masashi and run in the weekly shounen Jump.

Then there's the far right red line going like "new road(s), everyone's destiny" which could apply to any of the manga, the anime, the movie or all three of them at once.

There is, of course, no mention of Utakata, the guys behind Naruto is clearly Sasuke because of his sharingan, even if his hair do is unusual.
[hr]

apparently theres going to be a 6tails filler arc until March after this....I guess it will star Madara and Kisame?

Is there any truth to that beside the debunked poster? Guys on 2ch are talking about a 6tails filler about 6 episodes long as well. Did they get mislead by us English speakers?

If there is a filler about another jinchuuriki, more than Madara or Kisame, it's Konan who desperately need decent showcasing.

Ok, I found the original info:

今日の放送で43巻終了だから残り50話以上あるな
年明けに先に八尾戦をやってそこから3月いっぱいまでオリスト

Today, they broadcasted the end of volume 43, there's only 50 chapters to go.
As the new year begins, we'll get the 8tails fight, only 3 months before we get to original story.
They'll do a story about 6tails' jinchuuriki getting involved with new Team 7's mission.

I'm not sure if the poster is just making this one out or if s/he got any reliable sources on this one...

What are the anime writers doing? The Sanbi arc failed both plot-wise and ratings, but they decide to do a similar arc about the Rokubi? I expect a 20+ episode filler arc that will make me want to stop watching Shippuden again... :(

I got some more stuff about that Rokubi filler (and learn a new Japanese word in the process orisuto, filler). Although it all come back to october, it may be just speculation.


今度のオリジナルは十話前後
この前みたいに延長されないいいね
ただ時期が微妙
もしかしたら八尾編の後かも知れない
今度は六尾編らしい
ジャンプの表紙に載ってたあのキャラも出るってさ

This time's original story is 10 episodes long
Still the timing is subtle
It's unknown if it takes place before Hachibi's arc [as a flashback]
It seems to be Rokubi's arc this time
I hear that that character was shown on the Jump's cover


オリスト突入前の八尾編は八尾捕獲してマダラに渡す所までなのかね
2話だったら尺的にそこまでしか進めないだろうし
オリストは主人公が出なきゃいけないから
当然キラービーや雲側の動きを膨らましての話じゃなく
やっぱ六尾の話なのか
八尾編と六尾のオリストを1つの章に括るって事は
八尾と六尾をまとめて封印するんだろうな

Before the filler take place, the Hachibi's arc goes up to Killer Bee being captured and brought to Madara
If there's 2 stories, they may only go up to a certain point
because they can't do fillers where jinchuuriki must lose
Naturally, they won't expend Killer Bee and the Cloud's story
As expected, it will be a story about Rokubi, right
I heard Hachibi's arc and Rokubi's filler will be put together as one arc
Hachibi and Rokubi could get sealed together [obviously, the guy don't read the manga -_- ]

That sound even more confusing (or is it my translation? Maybe I should give up and get some sleep...)

On December 19th, there's another entry on Rokubi's topic:


じゃあ、インフォメーション事を
・アニメは1月からオリスト(六尾)
・バンダイナムコからNARUTOゲーム2タイトル
 キズナドライブ PSP 来年
 ナルティメットストーム2 PS3&箱 来年秋

Yo! here's some information:
- The anime will start filler from January (Rokubi)
- Bandai Namco will give us two Naruto Game title
Kizuna Drive PSP next year
Narultimate Storm 2 PS3 next fall

The information about the games are confirmed else where, there are good chances that filler will start in january and will be about Rokubi it seems.
[hr]
If Rokubi gets his arc, Yugito will look like a total loser for not getting hers. She'll be the only jinchuuriki/bijuu/fake still free as Shippuuden started who got only four minutes of action (I counted). Poor thing.

I was wondering when a new filler would pop up, at the speed they've been going the past month or two it was bound to come pretty quickly.

Anyway, when they continued with the storyline after Sanbi arc they showed they can make good fillers as well. Think Orochimaru's past for example, that was just as good as canon material. We can only hope they will put that same effort into this coming filler.

Also it's been so good since after the Sanbi arc that I can handle crappy fillers again for a while lol. The only problem I have is that it apparently delays my favorite arc of Pain's invasion of Konoha :darn

My feeling too, but on the other hand, after what Kisame and Itachi said, it wouldn't be logical if they try to get Kyuubi before they take Hachibi (and Rokubi as it seems). And once we'll be with Pain and Naruto, I don't want to go back and forth between Naruto and Sasuke, like the manga did.

Talking of Rokubi, I reread my last post and realize they don't talk of Rokubi's jinchuuriki, will it be another loose monster story?

Well they better come up with it sooner rather than later. From the last filler arc they blew through 60 chapters of manga in just 30 episodes which is around 6-7 months of programming. If they don't have a filler arc that lasts between 15-20 episodes they'll be out of material by the end of the 2010. While the Pain invasion arc is like 30 chapters it won't last 10 anime episodes more like 6-7 if that. So if they're going to do filler arcs it needs to be before the reconstruction of Konoha because there is no stopping point after that.

I think the Pain arc will be a lot more than 10 episodes in anime.
Don't forget all the fight that we didn't see in the manga (Inuzuka vs Fat Pain, Aburame vs Konan, Ibiki and Ambus vs Summon Pain, etc, etc).

I think the Anime will put some awesome fillers in between the canon material for the Pain arc (kinda like the Deidera clay monster and Gamaken vs the 3-heads dogs fight).

Wow, I certainly don't think they will put in "awesome" fillers. Don't forget that both Deidara's clay monster episode and Jiraiya/Gamaken vs Animal Realm Pain was made by a special team. I don't really have any expectations for the fillers they can put in, especially as they shouldn't waste those episodes by putting special teams on them. The special episodes should be reserved for Naruto vs Pain, and that fight alone. The episodes I want most to be well animated in that whole saga is Naruto's entrance, omg that is just to epic to waste on normal teams, and 6/8-tailed Naruto vs God Realm.

CBlitz

Lol if they should have pulled a Bleach and skipped out on the 4th Shipuuden movie so that they would have a lot of money for the Pain Invasion. Each episode would have quality animation that way, but since this arc is so important (not to mention its Naruto's first real fight post time-skip) I think Pierrot will increase the budget one way or another. Naruto vs. Pain is guaranteed to have some sort of special animation

It has to be Kishi (more likely, via his editor from Jump) who told them they could use Utakata for a filler. They wouldn't dare to mess with cannon material unless they are told they can, else it would only backfire spectacularly when the element come back in the original manga story. If so, Fuu and Han are out of bond, since both of them were taken back when Orochimaru was still in Akatsuki and Deidara was not yet member, years before Gaara got taken.

http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/238/18/
http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/266/14/

Anyway, it doesn't fit with the pictures of the Akatsuki statue (those Pierrot guys just can't get it right, not even once -_-) it had four eyes already before Nibi was taken in and seven when Akatsuki finished the extraction of Sanbi and Yonbi a few months ago. Unless this arc is a pure flashback arc instead of a "meanwhile, Naruto" arc, they already screwed the facts and the arc is not even started. ¬_¬

On the other hand, I wonder if Utakata is a nukenin like Kisame and Zabuza... Was he in Kiri at the era of the bloody mist? Was he close to the jinchuuriki Mizukage, Yagura? How old is he right now? I hope will get some answer to this.

So it seems that they won't follow the manga and just have Sasuke getting one of the beatings of his life first, instead of sending Naruto to train. Meh, don't like it. I'd prefer the changing of sceneries, from Sasuke to Naruto to Sasuke again and then to Naruto.

btw, 144 "The Wanderer"
"Fūraibō" (風来坊) January 21, 2010
145 "Successor of the Forbidden Jutsu"
"Kinjutsu no keishōsha" (禁術の継承者) January 28, 2010

So it probably starts this month.

Unless these 2 episodes are the ones before the fillers begin

you know, we get to see Bee being "caught" sealed and then he leaves and we see Naruto going to Myobokuzan to train Sage Mode (hence the Sucessor of the Forbidden Jutsu title, which, btw, I doubt. and the fillers are actually, this time, completely separated from the anime and are a flashback of sorts, like the Tales of Zampakutou filler arc on bleach.

Imo after the fillers, the rest of the year should be dedicated to Naruto and Konoha. We have so many things to see.

Raikage's reaction. If we don't see it on the next episode, we see it on the following. So, maybe on the next episode, Sasuke only beats Bee and Raikage is not yet shown. Either way, I'm sensing 2 episodes before we completely see Naruto going to train again (I'm not even counting the fillers, just the manga stuff).

The mourning of Jiraiya. 1 episode @ least.
The code breaking. Another 1 or 2 episodes.
The training. 4 Episodes @ least.

The start of the invasion and the showing of the powers of the various Pains and the fights of the ones that fight against them (Inuzuka's, Anbu's, Aburame's and those that we didn't see fighting). This should take 10 episodes with all the fights, conversations, discussion, Naruto supporting acts, Kakashi fighting God and Ashura Path, Kakashi dying and Kakashi talking to his dad.

Naruto fighting agains the 6 realms and beating the shit out of every one of them. Another 3 episodes @ least. 1 for each (though they'll make the pains fight a lot more and make it seem like Naruto's escaping death in the nick of time, so yeah, 2 episodes is better.)

The freaking confession! Naruto going Kyubii. This should be 1 episode.

Naruto fighting in Kyubii against God realm and then going 8 tails and being sealed in the mini-moon - another episode.

the conversation with the 4th (this will be 1 entire episode).

Naruto beating God Realm and then going for Nagato. Another 1 episode to Kill God Realm and @ least 2 episodes of talking with Nagato. Plus another 1 to make him acknowledge Naruto.

And then, Naruto being treated like a fucking hero which is already appearing on this ending with the kids surrounding him. This should be 1 or 2 episodes.

Around 26 to 28 episodes dedicated solely to Naruto and Konoha.

This said I estimate that the Kage Summit only begins next year.

I'm thinking they may merge the reaction to jiraiya's death and Naruto's training with the fillers. TBH, I'm not looking forward to Naruto's sage training at all. It was boring and pointless in the manga and it'll be boring and pointless in the Anime. I don't want to see people train unless the training itself is genuinely interesting (and it hasn't been in part 2, it was interesting in part 1 because it was usually combined with something else, like the funny Naruto/Sasuke rivalry during tree climbing or Naruto's creativity and the chase for Tsunade for the rasengan).

Hmm, In my opinion the sage training was quite interesting. Though I agree that the training sessions in part 1 were way more funny and interesting. I enjoyed every one of them, and honestly the Rasengan/Sannin Arc may be my favorite anime arc solely because I love the training session. That's the episodes I've watched most times atleast, though the chuunin and/or wave arc may be "better". It's still the arc I enjoyed the most.

I liked the sage training, but as you I'm not looking to much forward to it either, mostly because it's the fights and special emotional moments that are most interesting in the anime as they provide extra "feeling" and excitement. The training is rather straight forward without any "special" moment, but I'm still looking forward to it. I don't really have any problems with the sage training as I liked it. The only problem would be that the time he mastered the technique within makes no sense, though that's hardly a problem with the animation.

There are roughly 30 chapters IIRC. 420-450. Or was it 419-450? Still it's only 30-32 chapters max, so that shouldn't be any more than 15 episodes, maybe even less. Fight episodes usually get burned through quickly as the fights themselves don't take up to much time anime wise. It's the talking in the fights that take time and it's quite alot of talking in the Pain arc. I'd say like Nindo said, max 20 episodes. They will probably extent the Chibaku Tensei chapter to a whole episode for example. I really wouldn't mind as I'd love to see more of KN6/8(!!!) and some of the Konoha nin's reactions to the jutsu in the sky. I mean, wtf? We never saw anyone's reaction to a huge floating ball of rock? Konoha was VERY close, it's simply not possible for anyone to have missed it. So I would bleed for some reactions to CT and them seeing KN8 burst out of it.

My point is, that it's alot of room for extra material to add MANY extra minutes in this fight. If we go by the actual manga material no more than 15 episodes should come out, however with the possible filler material (people fighting pain, Chibaku Tensei etc etc) it's possible to drag it out dramatically. I just hope they don't overkill the fillers as Pain's chakra usage was at ridiculous levels as it was, and seeing him use alot of additional techniques would be like "oh please no more". It's obvious that he used SOME techniques to beat all those guys he got past, though he probably stalled alot too and waited for the tactical retreat before Chou Shinra Tensei. But still an overkill of jutsu showing would kill it.

I get the feeling that Kishi wrote the Pain Invasion with the anime in mind, and left a lot of scenes to the imagination so that the anime can animate all the stuff that was off-screen. Like Konan, Konoha nins vs. Pains, etc. If the anime does a good job with it, it could turn out to be one the best arcs in the Naruto (anime-wise)

January 12, 2010, 02:09 PM
What I really hope they extent however, is Naruto's mourning. Shikamaru got a whole episode with super animation which was one of the best episodes in Shippuuden history, actually in Naruto history in my book. And Shikamaru is just a side character. If they did that for Shikamaru then they really should do it for Naruto too, especially since his mourning was rather short in the manga. But if they do extend it then they gotta do it right. Shikamaru had super animation and a kickass director to boot. So if Naruto doesn't have the same then chances are that the mourning will suck.

I get the feeling that Kishi wrote the Pain Invasion with the anime in mind, and left a lot of scenes to the imagination so that the anime can animate all the stuff that was off-screen. Like Konan, Konoha nins vs. Pains, etc. If the anime does a good job with it, it could turn out to be one the best arcs in the Naruto (anime-wise)

Exactly my point in saying that it will last for around 26 episodes :D

btw, this scene:

I was hoping to see it with the music from when Naruto won the Chunin Exam against Neji. That music fits this scene so much!

Sadly it won't as they don't use old OSTs. It's pure Shippuuden themes now. Sadness and Sorrow should have been played during Jiraiya's death for example. I don't know if there are any "rules" against it, contracts and so on. But really they should have played that song during his death scene. Imagine Sadness and Sorrow while Naruto cries while holding the popsicle :crying

well at the rate the anime has been going through the manga, I'd say that the entire Pain arc will probably boil down 22-24 eps.

Well for sometime now, Anime is using 2-3 chapters per episode. If they keep this speed, I think whole Pain Arc will be 12-15 episodes only. Arc is 30 Manga chapters.

The Japaneses say the filler will last up to April, and they say 10 episodes, which mean end of March, so I wouldn't set my expectations too high. And Naruto can train in fillers too, he did it in the Sanbi filler. Anyway, he need to go down on depression before he train with Fukasaku, so it doesn't quite add up. But thanks for the titles and dates.

hmmm apparently there's a chance that the filler will end on 151...making this an 8 ep filler arc.

There will be a one hour long Pokémon special on March 18th

From the previous times, it seems it will be Pokémon SP (March 18th), Naruto SP (March 25th), Pokémon SP (April 1st), Naruto SP (April 8th).

I confirm the guy's claim, it worked that way around April for 2007, 2008 and 2009, chances are good will get it that way in 2010 too.

I don't think they will make an hour-special for a filler, right?
Most likely, the canon-materlail will be back, and we could get two hours-special about Naruto reaction to Jiraiya and them figuring the codes...

They did it already and twice in a row, for episodes 101 to 104. It was in Sanbi's filler. They did a two episodes special for Sora's filler as well, episodes 64-65. So I wouldn't put it pass them to end the Utakata filler with a double episode. ¬_¬

The type of music done by Mass Alert is what I expect in an ending, not in an opening. I honestly don't expect "optimistic" opening music to be playing during one of the saddest arcs in the series. In fact, I honestly can't see any one of these two songs being used as an opening for Naruto.
@KonohamaruHeaven- I don't know how they're going to resolve a filler arc in 20 minutes. Knowing the crappy writing in the fillers, they'll probably use 10-15 minutes just for Utakata and Hotaru to say "goodbye." And let's not mention about Akatsuki, unless the detailings of Utakata's extraction are going to be part of this two-episode special everyone's been blathering about.

titles are still unknown. And it looks like 2ch was wrong about Mass Alert doing the new OP. They're really doing an opening for the Naruto-hen thing that's airing in Japan right now.

The new OP is actually gonna be done by some guy named Motohiro Hata. I was browsing though a couple of his songs, and they work better with the subject material than Mass Alert's stuff. Although its still not hard rock/metal >_>

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJeMHMd8bFQ

the OP song is still unknown though

and lastly the new directors I mentioned in my previous post worked on the Monster anime and Naruto/Bleach movies. So the special will probably have good animation/production values. Still crossing fingers that the filler is wrapped up early on in the special so they can focus on canon material

Now that I think about it. For the next month's (if they don't go back to filler again) We'll only be getting action. Battle, after battle after battle.

The anime is gonna be awesome. Lets hope the animation is on par with episode 82 and 85 (best in shippuuden imo) when Naruto and pain try to blast eachothers faces off. This battle is bound to be heavenly, so top animation is a must.

They don't really have a choice. They can't burn through manga material now. That's also the reason the filler was made. Also sasuke's vs killerbee was also supposed to happen now, but that's already happened so the timeline is also messed up.

April 01, 2010, 11:21 PM
what the hell are you guys talking about? They're going at 2.5-2.25 chapters per episode, which is very fast. I'd rather not see them use more material because there's so much room for (good) filler. For example there were a lot of fights that were off-screen, Kishi probably did that so the anime team could put together some filler fight scenes. Any filler in well animated fight scenes are welcome, half of Naruto vs. Sasuke was filler

I agree, I hope they extend Kiba and his mothers encounter with Preta path, and maybe a little showing of the Aburame clan versus konan. There is also a lot of room to extend Kakashi's fight, as a portion of it happened off screen. They did it in the Zombie arc really well. Maybe even a few gag scenes of Naruto training. It is the perfect opportunity to add in filler without losing the quality of entertainment. Which is usually the case with mediocre filler arc's.



yes it it, that Killerbee fight is supposed to be roughly the same time. Reading over those manga chapters makes this timeline goof all the more worse.

It was done intentionally to save from jumping back and forth between Naruto's training and the Kirabi vs Sasuke fight. It actually gave the fight a more action packed and fluid feel. I actually commend the anime team for that.

No worries, that particular episode doesn't really have any fights going on. It's just pain going on a rampage. It's the episode after where the epicness starts.

159 is where kakashi shows how godlike he is:D

It's great and stuff, but they better put their best men on the naruto returns and the naruto vs pain episodes. If they slack there I'll go to war with japan.

By special animators, I mean Norio Matsumuto, Hiroki Tanaka, and Hirofumi(sp?) Suzuki. The cream of the crop, there were 2 of those for Itachi vs.Sasuke (135 & 138). Sure there was 137 but that wasn't anything amazing. There was a pretty big difference between 137 & 138, excellent animation is far above "good" animation. No doubt that there's going to good animation all around but I only expect 2 spectacular episodes at most

True, but they could've/should've used a more hyping song like the last intro. This material is so badass yet they use such a lame song. Those songs are good for endings and stuff. The beginning just has to be epic. All those fights and you use a slow melodic song?

Don't think the song is that bad
I like it because it gives the right vibe,
People actually die in that arc, kakashi die and choji father etc, okay, maybe they end up alive in the end. But those who doesn't read the manga probably go "omg NOOOoooo" and feel sad for the rest of the arc, that's when the opening comes to play, as a sad and slow song, yet at the end it displays naruto sadness and rage after finding out jiraiya's and kakashi's death. The village attack is actually a sad thing, and pain's past is too, probably the reason of using this song.
The last one was amazing, granted but this one fits the arc perfectly imo.

Lol's awesome as hell in the preview in my opinion. Looks smooth, no 5 frames per second animation, and great art in general. The first scene with Pain talking and it's all black I assume is from his fight with Naruto, that scene looked like had incredible animation, so that episode must be kick ass too.

I'm so hoping that Naruto vs Pain will be fought in a setting where there's a dark sky with thunder shooting down like in the opening. And the last picture of Naruto being in a dark background may be a confirmation of that! Anything other than the boring normal weather please, let's be a little artistic.

Do we really want fillers unless they're done nicely? And I highly doubt they'll be done by some guys that have some passion, not before Naruto vs Pain anyway. That fight will most likely have some small extensions throughout the fight, but those episodes will all most likely be of overall high quality. The other extra stuff like Kiba vs Fat Pain and Aburame clan vs Konan will most likely not be too exciting. I'll all up for a little filler here and there as long as it's not some ugly directed animation which such scenes tend to have that are of little importance.

One small filler I would like to see in this arc is Konohamaru's Rasengan training. I want to see Naruto's way of teaching & explaining the Rasengan. If the animators do it well (I don't care if there's crappy animation for that one) that would be a big plus in my eyes for the anime team. It would give Naruto major development & we'll be able to see a glimpse of his talents in being a teacher.
