Could have been excellent, 16 September 2013
Author: turdzeladze from Georgia

Let me start with saying that the manga "Naruto" is phenomenal. Especially the last few chapters - they just keep getting better.

Now, about the anime. I shall be focusing mostly on the few, but very important faults of "Naruto" and "Naruto Shippuuden", so first I'll quickly point out what I like: 1)Story and characters. Like I said, the manga is really great and the anime successfully retells the story. 2)Music. Some of the best anime soundtracks I've ever heard. 3)animation. Not much to say here, other than that the animation is top notch.

So, with so many pros, what can be so wrong with the show that I gave it 8/10? 1)Fillers.Both the original "Naruto" and "Naruto shippuuden" are full of those. While I admit, some of them are pretty good, most are worthless waste of time, only produced to keep the show from catching up with the manga and to hold broadcasting time in Japan at the same time. How much fillers are there? A LOT.I believe, episodes ~150-220 (of the original series) are ALL fillers. Personally, I skipped those and that's what I recommend to anyone. "Naruto shippuuden" also suffers from tons of fillers, not as much as the original, but still a lot. 2)Overstretching the non-filler episodes. Recently, I watched 5 last episodes back to back. Several phrases were repeated multiple times. I'm sure one was repeated at least once in every single one of those episodes. The thing is, out of 20 minutes of running time, opening takes 3, flashbacks of the previous episode - at least 5 and the ending credits take some 2. Thus, only half the episode is used to move the story ahead, again not to catch up with manga. This makes virtually all the dialogue sound unnecessarily dragged and stretched.In fact, it makes the whole story feel dragged and stretched.

That is why I'm mad. Really great content is butchered, only because they have to keep their time on Tokyo TV. That's why you have seasons, you morons! You take a story arc from manga, make some 30 episodes about it and polish it for several months, let's say, from January to May, then broadcast it, say, from July to December and repeat it next year. That way you don't have to use fillers or overstretch your content.

Sadly, that's not how the Japanese system works.

Overall though, Naruto is and will always be my favorite anime, especially with most parts done properly (very first arc of the original anime, that was awesome, as well as episode 322 of the shippuuden, now that episode proves that the studio CAN do justice to manga).
