I was a huge fan of naruto when I was a kid but it just started boring me once it started going into shippudden. For me the series ended after volume 26 and I just didn't really see why the story needed to continue. I bought volumes 27 and 28 but it just wasn't the same. With the series ending soon, I just thought I might ask: Does shippudden get better?

It does get better. I don't read it though I watch it. The only annoying thing is the fillers right now are so lame and boring (well for me anyways) but in general shippudden is really good.

If you've been with Naruto this far, take it home with him.

He's all I've got left now.

The characters are usually pretty good, but they are deliberately designed to be frustrating in the way that they interact. Prepare to be frustrated by the characters most of the time.

The animation is sloppy. They cut a lot of corners, often having just a single person moving, or just their facial expression. They also commonly play music thats meant to be poignant at key scenes and just draw the episode out with reaction shots etc. The pace of it is abysmal.

People survive more often than they should, and when good people do die, it's to make some ridiculous point. Often there is a flaw in the reasoning for why they need to die as well.

The more you watch it, the more invested you will be, but the anime itself isn't that great. I wouldn't recommend starting, because you'll probably want to know what happens at the end if you do start.

Yes definitely!

Aside from the fillers which I am 90% sure came from the minds of 5 year old circus folk, the current arcs are some of the best in my opinion. I would say the Ten Tails arc is really good, we get to see some big names in action and they dont dissapoint.

This next parts which are coming will be some of my favorite I believe. First Gai's amazing fight, then Naruto and Sasuke. Its defninetly worth the watch!

This should be moved to the anime section.

It does. The fight with Pain is a must watch, and you must find out who dies soon.

I've moved it.

I agree about the fight with Pain and the whole Pain arc. It never really recovered that level of intensity, and good (and well-paced) storytelling after that. I almost wish I'd just stopped watching it there, but since I didn't I figure I'll see it through to the end, stupid mood-breaking filler and all. Sigh.

Yes the fillers are the worst part, I wind up just letting the eps build up until it gets back to the main storyline:)

Yes, of course. Moreover, he's the key to the battle.

According to my queue, I stopped watching it at episode 339 which was the fight between Sasuke and Kabuto.
The filler killed my reason to watch it.

I'll continue watching it when it's finished (of course taking off all the filler).
