    I though it was bad, they added in unnecessary stuff once again

    Then there is no pleasing you. I thought it was pretty good. Nice action apart from the Neji fight.

    hmm if they kept the anime how it was in the first season than it would be fine but no they have to prolong the fights like mad and add in some stuff that is not needed

    True, but this special had good action that made up for the filler parts.

    So-so.

    The action was off and on. It got off to an awful start, replaying the entire Kazekage attack sequence from the end of 21, then screwing up Sakura's escape from the gas cloud (a sequence that should have lasted less than 10 seconds took several minutes and included an unneccessary flashback). And then she stops breathing! Oh god, where the hell did that development come from? But it picked up; Gai and Lee vs their clones was actually quite good, while Neji was patchy but OK and Ten-Ten... well, Ten-Ten is a boring character to watch anyway. The puppets were also hit and miss- it was generally quite good up until both puppets and puppeteers went into ridiculous DBZ-styled blurring attacks. The Iron Sand looked quite promising, but that was the easy stuff- from what I saw in the preview I think I'm going to be disappointed by the Iron Sand World Model attack in the next episode. And the constant cut-aways to Naruto, Kakashi and Deidara continue to annoy the crap out of me.

    Finally, there was some filler content that DIDN'T piss me off- I quite liked the stuff about Sasori's background (including, at long last, an explanation for Chiyo's hatred for Konoha's White Fang). It did drag on quite a lot too much though- the sequence with Chiyo and Sasori watching the kid fall over was a waste of time and puppets always seem to move really slowly and creakily whenever they're not actually in combat, to waste more time. Still, it was interesting (which is more than I can say for 99% of the original material added to the series so far). You think the guy who took the photo of Sasori with his parents was Ebizo?

    Ultimately however, the series is STILL not even touching the quality of the manga and Pierrot are rapidly running out of time to prove they've still got what it takes to handle this series (if they flunk the rest of this fight I'll lose all faith in them). Still, it's a small step in the right direction at least.

    They are going on the VERY SAME PACE! Yes, the first naruto anime had little more then 1 to 1 ratio on the manga to anime! Fast? NO!

    End of naruto part 1 was chapter 237 (anime had what 140? chapters before started the fillers? do the math.. its an average of 1.5 chapters per episode! but me, you know thats average there were times where it was 1, others 2.. but its generally SLOW)
    But since you didn't read ahead of time, it seemed fast, nor you saw "unecessary" stuff added..

    I think people still don't understand.. some of the "fillers" were in the manga..
    Not drawn but "left in the air" because thats how japanese language work..

    What the anime does is, get all of what is "in the air" and animate it.

    in the Manga team gai dissapeared for several chapters.. what happened to them? did they get lost or stoped to sing Kumbaiya?
    They were fighting! themselves.. its there! it was said.. it was not shown, but it was there.. we knew it happened we just didn't see.

    You can't expect the first big fight to last one episode!
    You know when its the next fight? in several MONTHS!!!
    After sasori, we will see kakashi MS, some shit.. and ow boy lots and lots of history, training and shit.. and NO FIGHTS

    Next fight its like on chapter 270? agains orochimaru.. and we are on what? 240?
    Even if they make 2 chapter every episode it will take 15 episodes.. that are 4months!!

    I think I got to state the obivious but some people just don't get
    No the anime will NOT speed up in ANY way! The manga has a 130 or so chapters of head start! And the manga shows no sign of ending.
    Naruto(1st part) took 3 years to catch up latest chapter!

    This one will probably do the same! you will only see deidara explosion in 2010!! HAPPY? NO, don't see it! Wait till 2010, and watch it all in three days, and that might be fast enough for you

    Was I the olny person who dreaded watching that entire ep? Damn, for one the animations were horrible. WTF happened to the people who drew Naruto 3 years ago? The lack of detail and transition animations hurt the ep.

    Second, too much unnecessary stuff. I mean its like they're prolonging everything. WTF is with Naruto chasing that guy and never catching up? I expected the 2nd ep to start the Kakasi with Naruto fight, however i was disappointed.

    The worst part is that i was really looking forward to this ep, i was very disappointed, especially in the qaulity. I mean for being two eps, they could of at least tried to make the animations and qaulity much better

    here's a single like with the compete 2 eps:
    Link

    I thought it was more or less the same as the last ep. The dialogue was very slow and for the most pat semi-exciting. Though, I got excited during the last 1 minute of the 2nd ep because the pace and reminiscence was the same pace as the 1st part of the series. If they can keep up that level of excitement there's good potential, but I doubt we'll see them maintain that. So, in conclusion, theres still a long way to go.
