the pacing of of the Shippuden Eps is very DBZ-ish

    The fights are great, but these eps have more dead air (wasted time with nothing going on) than needed. I mean, soap opera's have less dead air in them than Naruto.

    I Dont see the point of having to wait a week and there is no fighting going on, just a group of ninjas jumping from tree to tree......trying to race to another group of ninjas hidden in a cave........

    Im sorry this is BS.

    It isn't THAT bad. At least it has actual filler content and not just a minute of powering up

    Lol 5 episodes a week, that would be, technically, insane, since it's still in production.

    LOL and comment about the DBZ powering up/load time...........wow I cant beleive I sat there ant subjected myself to the 30 minute DBZ powering up.

    lol Id gladly watch Naruto jump from tree to tree for 30 minutes then.

    The pacing of the series has been right around one episode for each manga chapter. You can likely determine how long each anime arc will take just counting the number of manga chapters for each arc.

    Meh, some parts of me are inclined to agree with you.

    But there's little dead air in Shippuden. At least we're not cutting back, during the middle of the fight to see meaningless antics in Konoha. When its a fight, its a fight. We could have had 10 minutes of Gai powering up lol

    There were important things to be said whilst running through the trees, actual conversations that were important to the plot. They were there for the story. Yes, it is going slowly, but it could be alot worse. At least you enjoy the fights :)

    Wait so you're telling me that you don't care at all about:

    -Gaining the knowledge that when you extract a bijuu from a jinchuuriki they DIE

    -Knowing Chiyo was the one who sealed shukaku in gaara (seriously this was surprising when i read it in the manga)

    And i could list some other things but really, all you want is meaningless fighting? lol

    ^ He doesn't mind that really, he just would prefer it to be done quick and fast, to move onto the battles.

    Its just a matter of the suspense for the upcoming fights beginning to eat away at him lol

    Remember guys, DBZ isn't the template for every anime ever created.

    The plot/story has me captivated.....but i had to step back and actually process what I just watched and granted there was plot movement.......but nothing really happened.

    ^ Lies!! LIES!!! :yell

    And whilst you're right, it is possible to do other things with an anime to prevent major 2 year filler.
