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.
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.
I thought the Part I fillers nearly bankrupted Pierrot, or is that rumor that ive heard incorrectly ? 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
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.
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.
I love the animators
in the beginning, 1 manga chapter == 1 episode
now we have 1 episode == 4 manga chapters...
That's not funny >.<
Hope they stretch Pain Saga, please....
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.
nice to hear. i want to see madara and the kyuubi vs the 1st hokage panel animated.
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

The Lighting Cloud gorge translate to "Unraikyo"
Which is the title of the chapter when Kirabi fight Suigestu and Juugo.
So, I think we will see Killerbee and he will fight in Episode 142.
