    Wow, I am simply amazed at how poorly the animation team executed this episode. It looked absolutely horrid.

    I really hope the animation teams do not find a way to ruin these episodes, because this arc was definitely the best fighting in the series thus far. I just don't see how they can execute so poorly considering what they have to work with.
    The OG that ran Bleach for near a decade is no more.

    the animation was definitely horrible what made it more horrible were static frames and changing quality of scenes in the same episode , so the crappy parts stand out more (naruto and fukasaku) the pacing seemed ... slow , it took forever for tsunade to find out and the atks animation was just ... "sluggish" !

    The back ground music should have been a lot more dominant to make you feel the seriousness.

    also to those people saying that anyone kommenting on bad animation need to realize that they are saving budget, to them i say .... anime shouldn't have crap animation eps and super animation eps, the animators need to keep a damn consistent lvl , they are supposed to be professionals and its not as if Naruto Shippuden series does NOT make a shit ton of cash for em ... they need to get less high school girls for compensated dating and pour that into the animation budget.again the anime need not be super but the viewer should not have to realize that there are budget issues, keeping a decent base throughout should be good enough.

    Ps: i dont really think its a budget problem either , i think its the fact that they know they can get away with shit and are getting lazy!

    If anyone needs an example of an anime that supercedes its manga , look no further than MONSTER, that is how an anime is supposed to be , its supposed to enhance the story's appeal , not make viewers lower their expectations and settle.

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden Episode 157

    What I believe Pierrot is doing is putting in a crap load of budget into the movies. Personally I rather not have so many movies and use the extra budget for the anime. Canon > Fillers, and movies are fillers. Part 1 had such lovely animation rather consistently throughout the whole series and really enhanced your experience of the story. Part 1 anime > manga in my opinion, HARD. Part 2 has been a big dissapointment overall with the exception of many episodes since Sasuke vs Deidara, those have been pretty good averagely. I agree though I'd rather even out the budget and make the overall quality good and have less "super episodes". Seriously, if you take a look at Bleach you instantly realize that they have a far greater overall quality. Naruto is more of a rollercoaster ride while Bleach has a more balanced quality, with very few super episodes.

    I see why they're putting the crap teams on these episodes tough, as they're most likely letting them put out all their episodes before the true pros come in and do the important stuff. It's pretty sad to think about these guys being "pros" and giving out this type of animation. Are they actually happy with their work? I would frown so loudly if this was the best I could do and I was animating for such a huge series as Naruto. This episode should have been better. An invasion is supposed to be terrifying and this was not close to terrifying. They started out very good though with showing the peaceful daily life in Konoha, that was a great extra touch. All in all the episode wasn't that bad, but the few parts with horrible animation just downgraded my overall impression so dramatically.

    Re: Naruto Shippuuden Episode 157

    Aside of the so-so animation, I really liked the pace and the ideas. Pain was simply awesome, breaking into that peaceful situation.

    Of course some moments were lacking, most of all Sakura. She gets a moment to shine once every 100 episodes and they made it look crappy. It felt more like closing a door rather than knocking out a giant centipede in terms of power.

    Alas, we know they can do better, and for a mediocre animation team this was a good episode.

    There will be a episode this week, anime is not affected by Golden Week.

    I don't mind so much about the quality of animation, but I hate the lack of originality on the guys who make the storyboards... it seems as if anything not on a manga panel is most likely to turn out as plain awful.

    Episode 157: Beautiful

    This is the episode where the Nine Tails awakens in response to Hinata and Pain's brief interaction.

    The artwork in the long battle scene is so much different from typical Kishimoto, at times couldn't help but be reminded of FLCL. (Specifically when the Nine Tails' punch lands on Pain's jaw.)

    Perhaps this is an unnecessary thread, but I think it's worth speculating that the artwork in this particular episode (and some I'm sure is CGI) is brilliantly orchestrated, and well worth a second watch.


    Edit: Episode name is Planetary Devestation.
