Five episodes of Naruto Shippuden are scheduled to air in May.
garbage month...again!! they are so ahead in the manga, 70 chapters!! if they air 70 weeks of canon, theyd be another 70 weeks ahead in the manga
I dunno. They catch up pretty quickly. They're probably preparing for a big run of cannon.
Filler Month is LAME.
Again? Are you kidding me!? How much more do they want to give us?!?!
For me this is great since I read the manga its another Naruto story for me to enjoy ;)
If they run a filler I want them to write a back story of kakashi's dad, "Sakumo Hatake" aka The White Fang & I would like to know who kakashi's mom was just so we know his bloodline. Shinra Tensei
Sounds like too much logic to me, the ones in charge of the anime story would rather see Naruto and Chouji in an eating contest apparently.
Lol so true. I mean we know that kakashi's father was a beast & we know his mother died young but it never showed any of sakumo's fights or told us how kakashi's mother died or who she was. There are plenty of other back stories of many ninjas we would like to know but im a huge kakashi fan aswell & would like to hear more about his parents. Shinra Tensei
That's the sad truth, the Narutoverse has so much potential for expansion and back stories which will probably never get any attention. I'd also like to know more about Guy and how someone like him became powerful enough to challenge Kakashi. Or a far more appropriate to the story would be spending some time covering Sasuke's time with Orochimaru and how he turned from the semi compassionate guy who couldn't finish off Naruto to the cold person we saw at the start of Shippuuden.
@aiBreeze I totally agree. Shinra Tensei
Sometimes a little fanfiction can go a long way towards covering those unexplained mysteries. Even if it's not canon. Beware! Much like with Harry Potter, a lot of writers tend to overpower Naruto to absurd levels. lol
Naruto has turned into an anime that I used to love dearly into an anime that pisses me off more than anything. At this rate, there will be more filler eps than canon. I know not literally but still. The current manga chapters are getting really good now. Shame the anime is far behind. Looks like the manga could possibly end this year looking at the current events taking place right now. I just hope they don't cancel the anime before finishing the story like they did with bleach last year.
Technically Bleach is not over, There starting a new Ark in the series,(Ex: Naruto to Naruto Shippuden)Read an article a while ago, the rights were bought by another company. Manga's are still going but rumor has it Bleach episodes comes back in 2014
Sigh...just another one of those months. :(
Filler month again.. I hope those fillers are interesting cause their titles are interesting.
