Wow, the anime staff is 2/2 on filler. This is getting scary. Another good episode that gave people what they wanted. Next week is going to be hated but it's an issue about war, just what happens to the people left behind.
I my self and/or anyone I know or have ever spoken to about Naruto hates fillers worse then the worst thing ever. Please dont tell me or the other REAL naruto fans that a filler gave us what we want. What I want is for fillers to die forever.
Filler is a necessity whether anyone likes it or not. The manga is just too little a source material to survive on alone. The anime would have run out of material ages ago if it only relied on the manga. And Kishimoto intentionally leaves things for the anime to fill out. Remember, he never showed the Temari vs. Tenten fight in the manga or Kimimaro's backstory. And he clealry skipped many things in the war due to time.
I know boys will bash the next episode. As a girl I look forward to it because I love the moms and want to see more about them. And Kishi doesn't have time to write about them. So all I have is this.
This two last episodes even if it are failer are not that bad.
At least they are far better than the last filler, this fillers are about the war.
Beside I really wanted to see more than Deidara, I really don't like how he was treated in the manga.
I've always hated Deidara but surprisingly i found myself rooting for him. Good episode nonetheless.
Edo tensai wasnt put in by kishi just for fan service. It was so that people with unresolved issues could get closure.
Upto now Sasori has been a major character who finally understood his significance in the ninja world.
This time it was Deidara's turn.
And yes, I do believe Kishi intentions are that the anime will fill in side stories of the supporting characters
Agree to disagree I guess. I have a very different view of fillers and I dont believe Kishi expects anything of them.
Atleast they dont do what the Bleach fillers do. Jump about from one storyline to another and then back again without any deference to continuity. So whether or not I enjoyed or did not enjoy a filler arc I was left confused when the main story resumed.
Like - the post Pain invasion fillers were sometimes brutal.
I was quite confident in this episode,but it disappointed me a bit. kurotsuchi telling deidara the truth was nice and fair,imo. but the fact he escaped and was kidnapped again wasn't. at least,he should have used the C0,maybe he should have met A along the way,and the latter should have tanked the C0: taht technique seemed too strong,someone with a resistant body should have proved that it can be handled. then A should have pierced him with his lightning and then kankuro and omoi should have sealed him again.
So any idea on when we will get a new opening?
