So, to be clear, we are watching a story about someone dreaming about reading a story?

Yup, that's what those who are still watching are watching. I'm kinda still watching, because I'm a bit of a "completist" but am 2 or 3 episodes behind. 'm so glad I made the decision to start reading the manga a while ago since, although I think it dragged out final battles a bit much, it did have the good grace to stick to reach a conclusion and then just stop.

What's been happening with the anime for a long time reflects a complete lack of integrity.

Anime has been such bullshit since the Pain arc ended.

They will periodically dangle a few decent episodes in front of you to get you back into the show, then do about 3 months of totally garbage fillers. Rinse, and repeat.

Japanese people must not mind it too much, because I don't know how they can continue to sell such a huge amount of trite garbage to their fans.

The target audience is 12 years old, that's why.

Does anyone know if Japanese fans hate fillers as much as us? Or do they just eat this stuff up?

The original Kirin scene was much better. They are really trying to revamp the previous arcs of this series...

Probably the most rushed bs I've seen in a while. Hmm.. favourite girl got 1 sec in this episode when in the original she does so much more. No justice for Hinata. I can't wait until 2017 - when, possibly, the Canon mat. comes back.

If I had to guess its probably some unseen flashback just like the kakashi anbu black ops arc. And I've heard theres kaguya filler after that ends

"Canon" or not, I can't say I hold much hope for the Itachi side story to be very interesting. Just read the first chapter of the Shikamaru LN that Viz included in a recent WSJ, and the prose was horrible (not sure if it was that way in the original Japanese or just the translation), but even leaving that aside, it just wasn't an interesting story and felt to me like not very good, and extremely tepid fanfic. That Shikamaru is one of my favorite characters doesn't change that assessment at all.

(But that's probably not good for discussion here about the anime, unless we hear they've got plans to adapt that at some point as well).

Honestly, I think I'm done with Shippuden. I stopped watching after episode 436, and wish I'd stopped sooner. I had been looking forward to seeing the manga finale animated which is why I hung in there so long, but by now I just don't care, and think it's time for me to let this go.

Technically, the Itachi story is not canon to the Manga. Kishimoto did not write this since it was written by another writer. Sure, he may have "Supervised" it, but uh, notice the quote-on-quote marks on Supervised. Yeah...
