    You know, after looking at it, I think this new filler arc is promising.



    I give major points for the character design, combat, and art in this particular episode--it's similar to the Bikouchuu filler arc, but unfortunately the writers seem to be nerfing Hinata again.

    She shouldn't be lovesick over Naruto -all- the time, or is she just like this when Shino isn't around? Notice to all Naruto writers, stop using Kunoichi as damsels in distress. Geez.

    On the plus side, the bounty hunter dude's swordplay is fun, and Gosunkugi seems to have some pretty sweet jutsu. Naruto's tactical creativity with Kage Bunshin in this episode was pretty good too.

    About this filler has some good thing and bad...
    Positive:
    The history it's okay and is becoming a little interesting, It has Kiba, and it's all I can remember now:p

    Negative:
    Hinata (sorry But I can't like her), Where is Shino?, the far west thing...

    But in general it could be an okay filler

    P.S. - the filler about the bug it was an okay filler until the last episode which destroy it tottaly:mad

    i wonder if those two characters, daimyo and cowboy sword guy, are related to hayate. With the baggy eyes, sick look and sword weapon, it's possible. Also Kishi seems to be tying up some loose ends in the fillers, and what Hayate's problem was remains a mystery.

    kishi is not tieing any loose ends here, as he has no voice over the anime, much less fillers.... that's why they are called fillers...

    and this one already sucks....western style naruto seems crappy....

    and the jutsu... damn... like a thousand bolts and the only thing it managed was to scratch him??????? and he wasn't even defending......

    why don't they do like bleach fillers....make them comedy.....

    I kinda hated how they made them seem really weak. I mean after how Kiba fought in the rescue Sasuke arc I just expected more from him.

    The Konoha Ninja's got easily taken down with a simple attack. I mean Naruto got his head piledriver'd from a hundred feet away and lived. He got his chest frickin punctured and lived. I mean WTF. Same goes for Kiba. And when Hinata was captured, she could have just use her chakra blows on the guy.

    I was kinda disappointed that Gosunkugi nails ninpou didn't really do much to the bounty hunter guy. I thought when the 2 nails went through his feet, the next is gonna be ugly. But no :(.

    I find it funny how all the nails that came out just gave boba fett external injuries while none actually pierced anywhere deep into his body.

    Well, though he looks like a cowboy of sorts, he's more like a samurai, seeing as he specialises in Iaido (which Dattebayo translated as "Quick Draw").

    Who would have ever thought of samurai beating ninja in Naruto would come to pass? XD Oh well, from previews, looks like Naruto and co get their own back. :3

    We do have to remember that Naruto and co. are still children, so adults with similiar abilities and professions are generally more powerful than them (even Iruka, who everyone keeps saying is weak, back in the Chuunin exam, would have been expected to knock out all of Team 7 if they opened the scroll). So the idea of an adult with similiar abilities (though not as a ninja, but as a bounty hunter) isn't too surprising...

    Yeah but in comparison to how powerful they seemed in previous episodes, the skills they showed in this episode don't match up too well. Like CWar stated above, Naruto got piledrived into the ground on his head and walked away, but now if he's hit in the stomach with the blunt end of a sword he's knocked out. . . ALL DAY.

    They never quite faced an opponent like that before. I can see how he was able to take them by surprise and over-power them at first.

    They also trusted him less than a minute before. Now he's attacking them with skills that Naruto said he couldn't even follow with his eyes.

    Also, Naruto didn't survive the piledriver from Sasuke by any normal means. He was revived by the freakin Kyuubi.

    Well...since this guy doubles as both a cowboy and a samurai, we can rule samurai out of the picture now.

    How about cyborgs? They haven't done that yet. Have Naruto fight Franky (actually, that would be a kickass fight)!

    Or people with Matrix powers. That hasn't been done either.

    I think this filler has me slightly more interested than the others. At least this guy has some kind of mystery about him. He's probably the best filler character yet. But I won't judge it on this episode alone, lets wait to see how it plays out, cuz it could go both ways.

    This filler sucks, how can someone be liking this i dont understand man.

    Naruto has been in so many fights man, he is a fucking monster of power. Yet he goes down after 1 hit. How many hits did he take againts sasuke? How many hits did he take againts Gaara. Hell how many hits did he take againts Kabuto?

    Kiba is shown as being weak too, how many hits did he take againts that guy from sound four, hell he never fainted.

    Hinata, how many fucking hits did she take during the Neji fight. Neji almost killed her but she never fucking fainted with 1 hit.

    OMGZRES THIS THING IS SO FUCKING BULLSHIT AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH I HAVE TO RANT

    Good to see you again Negative-Ion :D
    He's right, and also about other things: If the Western-Style fillers are coming that means that they're not Ninja's, they can't be. That means there's more bullshit to come, peepz that are not Ninja and beating Naruto and the gang with some cheap moves. I'll see what we'll face, I'm really glad when the real stuff begins/comes back.

    I was hoping for an InoShikaChou. :/

    What's the point of having a Team 8 filler if there is no Shino. And what's the point of the decent Hinata filler when she's once again filling the "damsel in distress" role. She isn't useless.

    There are some fillers that I have to say are really to halfway good. Then again I've seen better fanfictions written by twelve year olds than some of the fillers. Hopefully it won't be as bad as the Mizuki or the Ibiki arc.
