We'll get more episodes like that, but as always it'll take time. You shouldn't expect another episode like 375 soon, no matter how many episodes you think would deserve that kind of animation.

You might want to rewatch the beginning of Shippuden to refresh your memory, because episodes like this were not the norm when Shippuden started. In fact the first year of Shippuden was pretty much a...

Fortunately Yamashita is a Pierrot guy and the main Shippuden animator, so his works pops up relatively often. When he's not directing his own episodes he's doing other things like animation or...

When discussing the episode, please respect those that don't want to be spoiled and put all future Manga events into spoiler tags. This rule will be strictly enforced. Thanks.

They don't have a single team, but unlike South Park, this kind of hand-drawn animation is an incredibly intensive and time-consuming process. And anime productions in general have to work with very...

That's not impossible, pumping out an episode each week makes for very tight schedules and barely met deadlines. That or they're just hyping up the episode.

Compare the voice of Gaiden Obito to the voice of adult Obito. It's pretty obvious why they changed it.
Same deal with Kakashi, he sounded exactly like his adult version in the Gaiden, so they fixed...

Either because they're having problems ripping it, or because they've finally received legal threats from crunchyroll.com, since they rip all the episodes from there.

The reason why this fight looks bad is that we just came out of a 6 episodes long filler arc that had movie quality animation for its whole length. You should go watch that instead :P

About the last episode of Chikara looking really rushed and having a bunch of holes: according to the last post on the Pierrot blog, a part of it was cut to fit the TV format. The missing parts will...

Because she's a cute little girl. What else?

A long while as in... two episodes? Both episode 293 and 290 had extremely well animated fights. I know they weren't that long, but still.

How is it not like him when he worked under Orochimaru for god knows how many years?
Kabuto doesn't care about being the boss, he simply does whatever he needs to reach his goals.

That's because this arc has not been written by the usual filler writers, but it's instead written and directed by Toshiyuki Tsuru. He's the director for most of the Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden OPs and...
