Join me in belated celebration as the latest wave of Naruto fillers ends and the true story proceeds! Yes, I realize I'm a bit late. But I'd taken a few weeks off Naruto and didn't notice that the filler episodes had finally stopped until less than a week ago. Then finals and scholarship deadlines swept me away in a storm of stress before I could finish polishing this post. I couldn't help it.
But now, finally, I am able to post my celebration of Naruto's return. Here's a short excerpt. Please read the entire post at my blog, Annalyn's Thoughts. I can't tell if anyone actually reads what I write here, so I prefer to divert them to my true blog. Then I know I have visitors, even if you don't comment. Though if you do comment, I shall be very happy!
Let the celebrating begin!
Warning: post contains minor spoilers if you haven’t watched up to the most recent filler arc.
– Without further ado, I give you today’s main feature –
I sit in front of our home computer since we need to replace our wireless router. I type in “hulu.com/naruto-shippuden” and the familiar page comes up. Laptop in hand, Word document up, I click on episode 197, “The Sixth Hokage Danzo.” The episode delights me, since it means the several months of fillers have finally come to an end. But I’m also hesitant. Danzo. I’ve known since twenty episodes ago that he would be the next Hokage of the Hidden Leaf, but a small part of me hoped it was not true. I like Danzo even less than I liked Orochimaru. At least that snake guy was obvious about how evil he was.
Naruto’s mangaka did not ask my opinion, though, any more than the anime adaptors asked whether I wanted all those fillers. And since I persevered through the fillers, I’m not about to desert Naruto over a small matter like Danzo... (find the rest here).
