Lol, "AND FILLER discussion" XD

Seriously, that needed to be added in. Any ideas on when this damn filler arc is suppose to end?

EDIT: I looked above. Thank god it's coming to a close soon. Hopefully we don't get another one, this damn show needs to end already.

Well you'd think that would be the case but they could even throw in another one in there, I wouldn't be surprised if they did . You'd think they would want to finish it before the Baruto movie though....

Due to the fact that I just couldn't easily watch a lot of animé early on (let alone read the manga that went with it), I wasn't very conscious of filler until... well... coming here. =P Once I knew what to look for I realized that for all I know the first animé episode I ever saw was filler, given how common it is. I was fortunate though in that I wasn't subjecting myself to a lot of it until I started (or returned) to watching Naruto and One Piece.

Forgive me because I know what it sounds like but... One Piece filler can be pretty good. Then again so can Naruto filler, and that is what we almost had here. Seems like there are two kinds of "good" filler and both require several common elements:

- good writing
- interesting premise
- proper timing

Honestly this current filler arc has the last of those three easily: I enjoyed the first Chunin Exam arc immensely and so another made sense and sounded quite appealing. The writing has been hit or miss; I can forgive formulaic when its well executed but some of these episodes feel kind of like the Paint By Number equivalent of animé production while also being of dubious technical merit (I'm not such a great critic of that last bit so maybe it is just me).

The obvious terrible thing was the timing; how awesome might this have been had it actually occurred at the "correct" chronological time (so as a lead in to Shippuden, ignoring that production budgets/values/other elements would have been different)? Unfortunately we are getting it as an interruption in this long, fantastic arc.

Just to end this on a confusing note, I'm a fan of Transformers toys. Why bring that up? Well one of the things that Hasbro/Takara have learned is a useful skill is properly timing (and even engineering for) redecos, the same core toy but done up as a different character or at least with a specific look for said character. Sometimes just casting the same mold in different colors can make it work as a totally different character, and in recent years they've begun including alternate parts/accessories on the initial mold (and presumably toss/recycle the ones that don't get used for a particular toy). For something that you know is a necessary part of the industry, it has become pretty enjoyable... which makes me wonder if a similar skill needs to be cultivated for animé "filler".

TL:DR: Um... long winded pontificating that basically amounts to "current filler could be better, could be worse, wonder if they have thought ahead to make future instances better?"

Fillers are close to finished now. Gaara's latest enemy faces defeat while I think Akatsuki (Kakuzu) makes its move based on the PV. Too bad the actual fighting will probably be less than 5 minutes on screen time.

As for this filler arc, I suppose Neji became quite a superstar especially in some of these latest episodes. Not impressed at all though in terms of episode content quality.

Edit: Finally filler arc is over now. Too bad we didn't get to see a fight at all but this brings back a little nostologia:

I started watching naruto like 9 years ago. Gave up on Shippuuden because of poor and drawn out animation. Stoped reading manga during the war because Kishi started sucking, really bad. Anyway, thinking of trying to watch the anime again, ar atleast give NS a try till i stop.

So a quick question: How much moref filler do i have skip and is the pacing always crappy with bad animation like it was early on?
