My scores don't really match up with my over all rating for one basic reson. Naruto Shippuden is really in a class of it's own. The fillers that this and the orginial Naruto contain is at a very high amount but the actual meat is just amazing. This and the orgnial are two different animes that just shouldn't be confused. Both are very good in their own rught but, yeah. Sakura has always grinded my gears. Since the very beginning. I couldn't really wrap my brain around how much she annoyed me. But she got better. Maybe only a little, but at least I can tolerate her now. Thats always good. And everyone is spectacular. Naruto is still the same person he was before, just stronger. THAT'S what i like to see.
