1-5. WTF?! Why did they show that for?! Not that I care but those who actually were strong (or foolish :P) enough to not read the manga must've had their worst shock of their life!
6. I kind of liked this little side story
10. The music when they appeared, supperb!
overall: Finaly some decent artwork! Finaly on track again!
Lastly, great review bax! I really liked the choise of images
Yesh.. The music is splendidly done. While not necessarily the best I ever heard, but then, the way they click into the story, it is superb.Originally Posted by juUnior
Heh, difference in opinion as Oro said. I prefer him to be in black ^^Quote:
Yesh.. that is what puzzling me. The entrance is guarded by many shinobis and ANBU, so it's amazing how strong Yura is. Well, people can argue they didn't see it coming, but impossible for the whole defense didn't see it after Yura kills one or two guardsQuote:
And thanx for dropping by ^^
To create the hype possibly ^^ Well, after more than a year of fillers, the animators must thought of to start Shippuden with a bangOriginally Posted by chvis002
Exactly. Nicely done and incorporated into the main story ^^Quote:
Yesh, one of the strong point of Shippuden ^^Quote:
Thanx for coming ^^Quote:
Nice nice! It definitely was an amazing episode. I got to say I loved the music, it was awesome <3 !!!
I agree with you on most of your comments, I just don't get why they already showed the scene with the inner kyuubi.... It would be better if they stopped the little preview at the moment Sasuke strikes down his blade on Naruto.
It's nice to read comments on the anime. Will you be doing this every week from now on?
Well, yeah,, you got a point. Theatrically, it's better to just stop when Sasuke is bringing down his sword upon Naruto. Would make a perfect cliffhanger. And oh yeah, noticed the sound when the screen goes black at this moment? It sounds like the sword being stopped by wood, not by Sai blocking.
As for the Kyuubi scene, I believe that the animators tried to make the scene more puzzling (at least it works on non-manga readers). Why suddenly inner Naruto? Why suddenly Sasuke is in there? Maybe to create a chain of unanswered events, in preparations for the strorylne to evolve later.
And yesh, look out for the next review very soon, as soon as I can get the anime RAW, I'll start working on the screenshots.
Great review, but I think that the animation for Shippuden wasn't good. It started out good when they showed Sasuke. Then after the intro the animation ranged from good to bad. The character faces went from really good then to who the hell is that. The staff seems to really have gottten lazy since the Naruto fillers that gave many Naruto fans nightmares.
hey nice one! I didn't notice it until you said it, just watched that scene again and you're absolutely right. Maybe they'll change the sound when they do the full animation in a few months...?Originally Posted by bax
Or they really let Yamato block the attack in stead of Sai... but that would be kind of lame for some reason... XD
It's just that in that scene we see that Sai isn't that heartless as we thought he was, and that he really cares about Naruto too. So if they let Yamato block the attack, we would miss all that.
yah, you're probably right about that one. ^^Quote:
I'll be waiting.Quote:
I agree with Forteantly. The Scene from the Grass arc, the Op and the ED were amazing, but there were scenes in the Episode i could hardly bear to watch...Originally Posted by ForteAnly
Well... If you look closely, the animation has improved comparing to the fillers. Yeah, the opening animation is great. But we can't expect it to be completely movie-grade for a weekly anime. At least, it is better than what we got during the fillers arcs.
Yeah.. I guess they want to use Yamato as the blocker in the anime. Well.. I'm not sure the reasons why, but a little twist in plot won't hurt the storyline. I know, it steals away Sai's moment. But, I'm sure Sai will be given his spot somewhere
May I know which scenes?
Thanx guys ^^
First off the scene where Sakura turns into a ventriloquist. As she speaks to Kakashi, who is standing on the sill, she refuses to move her lips ^^ .. actually pretty funny
The rest of the scene in Tusande's office is on an equal level. The movements (there are only few ^^) are very static and stiff. Sakura seems pretty fat, when her back is shown... Ah ! Tsunade's and Shizune's faces look awefully funny when Tsunade tells Sakura to remember her training.
Then there is the scene where Shika and Naruto talk about who has become a chuunin or a jounin... Shikamaru's face ... the mistakes in that scene are obvious.
yah, Sarmad's right about those scenes. But just as many said... we can't expect that they always give us those nice intro grafics from down in Oro's lair. Would be kind of nice though. ^^
I definitely hope they'll keep up with better grafics in comparison to the fillers. Wouldn't want to see those come back any time soon. (!)
I have to say I laughed at that...you shouldn't have reminded me! Now you've gone and spoiled my glittering vision of that episode!Originally Posted by Sarmad
Ah.. yesh... those scenes. You got a point Sarmad.
But like Goji stated, we can't have an hour of movie-like animations. Then, I think it would be hard for the animator to do weekly anime.
And look forward to EP 003 review soon.
Sorry .. They may have done on purpose >.>Originally Posted by Kadoman
Yep, you and Goji are absolutely right. But just to make it clear, i liked the episode(s) overall. The great animation at first with the OP and the ED compensated for the "ugly" scenesOriginally Posted by bax
I'll be waiting for your next review
As promised, the next one is up
Thanx for waiting ^^
