For all your naruto needs.

I don't watch the anime but I read the manga if anyone has anything they want to talk about etc.

I would highly suggest reading the manga as its easy and the story isn't half bad at the moment. Much better than the slow paced anime and not half as kid orientated. The sayings are there and shit but the slapstick humor isn't half as overused.

I stopped watching Naruto due to shitty mcshitfest fillers. Was truly epic at the time of the orochimaru konoha battle and chuunin exam and stuff. Recently started Naruto Shippuuden (lol up to ep 3) which seems good so far and isn't supposed to be terribly filler filled.

its really slow but has no fillers. It covers about 1 chapter per episode. To give you an idea at how slow that is, sometimes bleach covers 2.5 chapters per episode or at least 1.5

The latest Shippuuden ep wasn't too bad, probably could of done without seeing the flesh peeling from his skin though...

yeah, but the only reason it wasn't bad was because it was the last episode of the year and it had to be a good one otherwise people would be disappointed. I actually watched the episode on TV and found it extremely slow moving. It felt like the time it took naruto to do his business was an entire 40 minutes, but in actuality it happened within a few minutes because they couldn't even get there fast enough to stop it. Sakura had JUST woken up from being knocked out at the moment it happened. If we think of like boxers who get knocked out and wait for them to come to, it can last a few minutes or its almost instantaneous.

Anyone else read chp 387, its interesting, the current chapters deal with Sasuke and Itachi - Uchiha's clan history, and the reason Itachi left Sasuke alive in the past...and Itachi's 'true' purpose. The end of 387 was...well when you read those chapters, you'll see...

actutually, naruto is the easiest for my private 13 year old english lesson to explain BUT I'm enjoying it right now. bleach is pretty though to explain at the moement, which gives it extra points, but when it becomes easy for a non fluent english japanese person to explain the chapters, then i get a little bored.

was drunk sorry. I have a 13 year old that i teach english to and naruto is the manga he can explain the best, meaning its story isn't too involved or anything.

manga 388 came out, damn skippeh. could not beleive it was an illusion, though ofcourse it was in hindsight.

everything thats happened in the past few chapters have all been as well. I wasn't really surprised when it happened. I was more surprised they used 5 pages with basically no words though.

Sasuke losing his eyes = Not great for the fangirls. Which make up like 90% of the readership.

I JUST started watching the anime, on about episode 110 and I just passed the awesome Konoha/Orochimaru scene, man, SO GOOD, I liked it quite alot more than bleach and I'll definitely just skip the fillers and go to shippuuden.

I'm excited like woh to see what happens.
