Naruto Shippuuden – Anime Review
Review: After more than a year of filler stories the Naruto anime finally returns to follow the original manga story line again and with that this show also got a fresh new name.
The story is set two and a half years after Sasuke left to seek power from Orochimaru. Sakura is now training with Tsunade to become a medical ninja and Naruto is training with Jiraiya so that he will be able to confront Sasuke, Orochimaru and Akatsuki. Therefore all 3 of them are now training under one of the Legendary Sannin. Now that Naruto returns to Konoha many things have changed, but all in all everyone is still the same. Even though Akatsuki is on the move now, he still does not forget his original goals to become Honkage and bring back Sasuke.
I gladly admit that Naruto Shippuuden has fully lived up to my high expectations. Animation quality is fine again and we get to see the dramatic action adventures that we were used to. But it probably won’t take long before the story catches up to the manga, at which point there will be bad scripted filler stories again.
