I think the fillers have higher rating because people want new stuff, but i also think the ratings sink because the canon story is slipping.
I mean, if you think a part sucked in the manga, why would you care about it in the anime?
Though, filler quality is pretty low sometimes. I still usually watch them though, or skim them at least. But if the whole arc is bad i quit watching, but who cares.
I liked the video, and if it does come to pass it would mean that Naruot will fight Sasuke soon, but it wont be the end of the fight. Kabuto and Madara are going to still be around next time we see Naruto fight Sasuke. What I wonder about is, what's up with the huge scratch on Naruto? Was that from Sasuke's Kirin? I think I would like to see that.
I was sad about the fail I noticed when Naruto touched Sakura. Where'd all that blood go? Naruto was bleeding pretty badly at the beginning, and all of a sudden it's gone so he can smile and look pretty? :notrust
Is me or... the last sound when Sasuke is activating his MS, it soulds like rasen shuriken were heading towards him?
this was a cool video to bad it was all fan-fiction i doubt any of it will happen in the manga. but i was a nice warm up to the fight which should be great and epic.
As far as ratings on filers vs cannon episodes I would point out that not everything translates the same when animated some scenes have more impact in manga form.
Perfect example would be Tobi's revelation that he was Madara Uchiha was more epic in the manga because it was a surprise.
Then again sometimes animated fights can surpass their manga counterpoints. Perfect example would be the Hokage fight 3rd vs 1st and 2nd or Kakashi + Team 10 vs Hidan & Kakuza.
The filler bring something fresh and unexpected sometimes revealing some new aspect of the Narutoverse we wouldn't have time to explore normally.
omg ... pain vs naruto's animation ... why didn't you do it like this from the beginning :(
I hope they make an OVA naruto series from the beginning with 0 fillers and fast fights+ great animation (it would sell like hell).
This was truly epic, even though the Naruto/Sasuke fight hasn`t happened. I`m still waiting for something this epic to happen in the manga, I wonder how long Kishimoto will keep us waiting for the final Sasuke retrieval.
I agree with Shin, that naruto and pein part made me go "Whaa..?!"
and the animated scenes, great amvs materials. I wonder how they go about it tho, did the t shirt company hired the animation studio to animate it for them or something?
Anyway, when I show this to others, I'll make sure to emphasis on the fact that it is not "canon" but fan-made, and it's a really good fan-made ending IMO.
The hatred continues forever, even after naruto/sasuke son, that's what I'm telling from the ending.
I have just seen the OVA which contains a part of the future battle Naruto VS Sasuke.
In that OVA we can see the following:
1) Kakashi beaten up badly and couldn't bring out any word.
2) Sakura crying like always
3) 3 Big slashes in Naruto's body and his pretty messed up forehead protector
4) Sasuke's Bleeding eyes from using Mangekyou Sharingan
5) Kabuto and Madara with his Sharingan and Rinnengan
We also see:
1) Naruto hasn't yet used his Kyuubi-mode, only just his Sage-Mode
2) Sasuke hasn't yet used his Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and when we see his eyes develop we can hear a "baby" cry.
3) Kabuto and Madara leaving
4) and Naruto still breathing....
So this OVA is the prologue of their battle and we can also see how the story is going to develop.
Their battle will take place again in the Valley of the End.
I really wonder now:
1) Will Sasuke succumb to the darkness entirely?
2) Can Naruto still fight with those big slashes in his body?
3) Why Madara hasn't intervened in their battle since his wants Kyuubi that much?
4) Did Kakashi kick the bucket against the Seven Swordmen or he fought with Sasuke as well?
5) Sakura is useless as always too bad... I thought she had developed at least a little.
6) Kabuto hasn't/won't betrayed/betray Madara it seems.
That's all folks.
PS) I didn't see any thread related to OVA 2011. If there was, my bad.
PS 2) You can see the OVA on youtube or download it from Taka.

just passing by
wasn't this just a promo to sell shirts?
I think this OVA is just filler that they choose to not air on TV, and keep it for a bonus in DVDs.
They're always doin' that, making fillers.
It fits perfectly after the team7 meeting, when Naruto and Sasuke clashed a little. The geography is exactly the same, and the characters too.
I think the anime team done a filler in order to eventually extend the fight, and later they decided not to include it in the episode.
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, and if it isn't please move it to the correct thread, but I was wondering if it's possible to get the OVA if I order a t-shirt from the Uniqlo UK store?
Uniqlo Special OVA? wtf?
Isn't the OVA something completly seperate? From what I know is I read an article on ANN about a DBZ promo where a goodie bag is given to the first 50 buyers in UNIQLO on Oxford St in London if you buy 2 UT shirts. I of course went, hoping to get a DBZ goodie bag( I bought a white t-shirt of Naruto doing Rasengan towards Sasuke and an OP white t-shirt of the crew in Drum Kingdom), but as it turned out the goodie bag had nothing to do with DBZ. Instead what you got was an ice tea bottle, a Naruto anime DVD(ep 1-5 Japanese and English dub) and some japanese sweets.
Is this what you're referring to when you talk about UNIQLO???
